No matter how long-drawn-out may be the last field event, the relay is always reserved as the climax, and shivering spectators, bundling their wraps more closely around them, refuse to leave until this stirring race has been run. Indeed it has be- come the popular thing to stage meets limited largely to relay races. There are four man and eight man teams, quarter-mile, half-mile, mile, two-mile and "medley" relays. The relay rnost often employed, however, which seems to be a sort of standard event is the one in which teams of four quarter-mile runners compete. It was this event won in so thrilling a fashion by our neighboring college team that gave me my text for this foreword. For what is our high school course but a four year relay, unique in this respect: The seniors pass the baton to the juniors and retire from the fieldg the juniors in turn seize the new batons, and pass the sophomores for another lap. Thus the race goes on,-never ending, yet ever ending, always beginning yet never doneg each one running the whole four laps and encouraging and helping the younger teammates who enter the race as the "anchor man" draws near its close. ln the actual relay, the last runner tosses his baton to the track manager and walks off the field empty-handed. Empty-handed? No! He carries off unseen the throbbing heart, the bounding pulse, ,the glow of health, the victor's sense of attainment or the vanquished's determination to strive until he wins. Thus even the loser wins, and the winner wins twice. So in our figurative relay, all may run and all may Win, some in larger, some in smaller degree. Class of Summer '24, it is almost your turn to make the final pass. Just as the success of a relay may depend upon the quick, sure pass of the baton, so the spirit of the school depends largely upon you. From what l know of you l am sure that you will hand down a set of fine traditions and high ideals, and an example of sound and sane accomplishment. And what will you keep for your own? From what l recall of four years ago, you have exchanged boyishness and girlishness for manhood and womanhoodg ungainliness for grace and strengthg immature thought and ill-advised act for soundness of judgment and praiseworthy deed. Seniors, pass the baton and carry off with you the rich rewards of those who have "kept the faith and finished their course!" Juniors, seize it and carry on, setting ever higher records to be striven iogvarcl by those who follow you in the greatest of all relays,-the Relay of 1 e. CHARLES B. MOORE. 10 MR. CHARLES B.

What Mr. Wilson wished to point out was that the value and proof of education lay in the high ideal and high goals that - became the result of the achievement of that diploma, not in the ,E parchment itself. One cannot go around wearing his diploma on the lapel of his coat. He can, however go around letting his actions speak loud of good deeds that he who runs may read and know that what he has attained has been worth while. If all that was learned at high school was that two plus two equal four or some such proposition, the four years of the student life would be wasted. iistory, literature, science, teach not just the facts of life but how to live. ln so far as these studies have done this were they successful. For our part, as students, in so far as we have grasped the essentials. recognized the path to higher things to which we may aspire, and resolved to make use of the worthy things of life, so far have we benefited by our education. Now as we are graduated into a larger school, we can show our appreciation of the beauties and wonders of life that have been pointed out to us, by using them as "tools for greater usefullnessf' Thus can we carry on the spirit of Franklin and "establish the right to call ourselves educated!" I2 I' Zin jlilrmnriam "The most substantial glory of a nation is in its virtuous great men." Never before in its history has our country suffered such a tragic loss as in the passing of these two great statesmen. Each gave his life in the service of his country. The people of the United States are grateful, and love and respect them both for their untiring efforts and magnificent achievements. The name of Warren G. Harding will go down in history as that of an upright and kindly man whose fellow citizens thought him sufficiently worthy and capable of filling the highest office which they could confer upon him. At the time when he entered upon his presidential duties, the war was over but nevertheless his task was a difficult one-that of reconstruction. While he was living, he discharged his duties to the best of his ability, but his untimely death came while he was still in the public service. When Woodrow Wilson died, a nation grieved, and a world paid tribute to his memory. He was a national figure, a world leader. At one of the most critical periods in world history, the people of all nations looked to him for guidance. "Life's crowning star is brotherhood" might well have been the motto of Woodrow Wilson. He spent his whole life in spreading and teaching this ideal and cherished the hope that some day the world would accept it and that all nations would unite in a union of brotherhood. We have often heard of the many-sided Franklin but we must realize that Wilson also was many-sided. We think of him as a truly great president who came at a time of peril when just such a man was needed. Often we regard him as an idealist who fought and died for his ideal. Besides being a statesman, a diplomat, and a man of public affairs, he was a thorough scholar, a teacher, an author of note, and a just lawyer. Although his plan of a league of nations has not as yet been accepted by the world, it will stand as a monument to his ideals. Few great men are really appreciated until years after their death, but Wilson has already been called, "The Saviour of Democracy." We students of Franklin High School are thankful that it has been our good fortune to live in the age that produced these figures and we wish to pay due honor to these men who have meant so much to our nation and have accomplished so much for America. 14 VR' r sv S if ,.

On January 23rd, 1920, a large group of young men and women assem- bled at Franklin High School to become enrolled as Freshmen in this growing institution. That memorable day will never be forgotten by students of the past, present, or future. A term passed and they advanced to the high and mighty grade of A9. During this last term they were represented on the Student Council by john Hill and Helen Van Vleck. Some of the class members joined clubs while others had already broken into athletics. ln the spring of l92 l, when they became Sophomores, it was found that many had fallen by the wayside because of sickness, change of residence or, even scholarship. During the Sophomore year the class was represented in practically every organization and athletic activity in Franklin. Again in the spring of 1922 came the transition to the noble state of Juniors, with the roll numbering only S5 at the beginning of the third year. Yet this was not disheartening, for the class could take as its slogan. 'iQuality, not Quantity." Ah! At last the time, long-anticipated, and heralded with band selec- tions, big guns, and bouquets of roses, had arrived. The fatted calf was killed and the mantle of the Seniors fell upon the class! The Class of S '23 had just been graduated, and the Class of W '24 had moved up to take its place, thus making entrance into the mighty realms of Seniordom. Far from being a dead bunch, before the class had organized during the first five weeks, there had been held a hardtime party, at the home of Paul Spencer, where overalls and red bandanas, and weeds not yet called for by the Salvation Army were much in evidence. The second five weeks arrived with the class still not organized, not because they were slow, but because of a faculty ruling which prohibited their forming until the end of the first ten weeks. However, that did not stop the round of activities, for there was a mountain hike up the Arroyo Seco with a wienie bake in the evening. Organization week saw Paul Spencer elected as president: Margaret Hitch, vice-president: Jean Williamson, secretary: Virginia King and Cameron Coyle, treasurersg and Audrey Lippitt, social chairman. r The term advanced and the time arrived for the annual party given by Hi the Senior B's to the departing Senior A's. ln the estimation of many, the affair was the best party ever given to any Senior class. ln September, I923, the class entered on its final lap of the four year's journey through Franklin. At last the two classrooms were combined and both boys and girls went together to 402. Paul Spencer was re-elected as president, but the remaining officers were new, Ruth Mattingly was elected vice-presidentg Alice Karhn, secretaryg David Lee and Ethel Twait, treasurers: and Betty Davison, social chairman. The first social function as Seniors was a beach party at Santa Monica, where wienies were roasted and the conces- sions at Ocean Park looked into very thoroughly. Then came the great argument of the year, Colors. Arrangement fol- lowed arrangement until they were finally chosen, red and white. Then the matter was dropped as it was hoped, forever. Things went along fairly smoothly until a business meeting at the house of Cameron Coyle, when the long forgotten color question was again brought up, and the decision made to revote on the question the next day. This time red and white was defeated and orange and silver won. fThank good- ness, that question was settled forever.J Shortly afterwards practice on the songs for graduation was started and then for the first time came the realization that the end was really in sight. A Senior A party was held in the gymnasium on January 4, with Betty Davison working hard to make the party a big success. Because of the cele- brity and greatness of the Senior A's, the Senior B's decided they would ap- preciate greatly the honor of feteing them. January the l8th was the date set, but the celebrations did not end there, for on Monday, January 27, just four days before commencement, the class went to the mountains for a final good time. A class history would be far from complete without mention of the classroom teachers, Miss Jessup and Mr. Montgomery, who were with the class both at the start and the finish. An expression of class sentiment toward them would read something like this: "They have stuck by us and fought for us. and two better teachers cannot be found. We, the class of W. '24 will never forget them and their precepts will be the guiding principles of our lives." To the teachers who have helped the class along its course at Franklin High is extended thanks for their words of advice and gratitude for the pleas- ant four years spent at our Alma Mater, Franklin High School. Mr. SniH:en, Boys' Vice-Principal, also holds a warm place in the hearts of the members of the class, for he was one of the B9 teachers who started them on their way and it was only by his counsel and friendship that many were so well started. The class takes great pleasure and pride in including Mr. Sniffen in the family of W '24. 17 MARY BARNSLEY X A BETTY BOWMAN CAMERON COYLE RALPH HARPER RHENA BEATTY HEL EN BRAUNTON ELSIE FABER BLANCHE FITCH DWIGHT HUMPHREY DONALD HOOK.

LIFE OF BRAVE NEWS- PAPER MAN SAVED BY UMBRELLA The bravery of a news- paper reporter caused the death of Dwight Humphrey yesterday. WVhile walking along 57th and Broadway at noon Mr. Dwight Humphrey happened to glance upward and caught sight of a little child playing on the roof of a high building. Realizing the child's danger Mr. Hum- phrey proceeded to climb the building to' save it. He reached the 12th story safe- ly, but on attempting the 13th, his foot slipped and he went crashing to the ground. Luckily he was carrying an umbrella which he immedi- ately put to use by opening it and carrying it reversed. He landed inside and thus saved his life by his pres- ence of mind. I WWA 1'4" Pi , . ,. ' 5, F1 V History of Graduating Class, Summer 1924 Fourscore-or was it four? years ago our fathers brought forth unto this justly exalted institution of scholarship, a new freshman class, conceived in liberty and dedicated to the proposition that all Freshmen and Seniors are, by an inalienable right, equal. This particular class, destined to become the now famous graduating class of Franklin High in the year of grace one thous- and nine hundred twenty-four-summer season-then numbered two hundred hfty one. To this number was later added one hundred fifty six who came from other schools. English, history, algebra, general science and Latin "came, were seen, conquered." Rapidly knee-pants grew to full length. glasses eased eye-strain, due to undue consuming of the midnight petroleum: ten weeks came, with report cards and their dread import, and those who had laboriously accumulated the requisite number of solids passed on be- yond the vale of uscrubdomu into the much south-after Freshman A class- rooms. A few slipped and fell back, doomed to languish in the hated "Hold- over Rooms," the bane of a Sophomore's life. june came, with a big step past the first milestone of high school life, and vacation was on. Summer school, however, soon began, and the merry "school boys and girls, with their satchels and shining morning faces, ran like the swallow unhesitatingly to schooli' fapologies to Bill Shakespeare in "As You Like It."J After summer session ceased, vacation time hung heavily on the hands for two weeks but at last the joyful day arrived, the first day of being Sophomores, with all the pleasure that that grades studies bring. The students eagerly greeted geometry, Caesar and rhetoric, but another Thermopylae was enacted at card time. However the valiant girded up their loins and went on to the task until they had oozed through the second year with the necessary "threes." Again a milestone had been reached and, for most individuals, half the course was run, but a few had found the fence of failure too high to wriggle over, and these unlucky mortals were obliged to tarry yet awhile and practice the art of steady grinding. Nothing now remained for most of the class but to await the coming of the next school term, which they defied with the secure status of upper classmen. ' Nlany persons believe the junior year to be an unfortunate one in that there is a great deal of suspense in awaiting the advent of true Seniorism. The class passed the year in gaining distinction for itself. A Junior was Boys' Self-Government President, and the appointed and elected delegates aided in conducting self-government in an orderly fashion. ln dramatics several class members proved themselves satelites. 27 Members of the class held responsible Student Body offices. ln foot- ball, track and tennis, the Juniors were prominent. The boys congregated in classrooms I4I and 32 l , while the girls met in classrooms 220, l42 and 30. The class of the year showed over l I8 persons eligible for the cognomen of Senior B. At mid-term all the boys, who had previously convened in 321, with Mr. Seernan and Mr. Gilson as class teachers, moved up to 401, where the girls held sway, with Miss Greene, Mrs. Anderson, Mrs. Miller and Miss Rankin as advisers. Class elections soon held the center of attention. Arvid Maeder was elected President: Thyra Hoffman. Vice-President: Clara Bixler, Secretary-Treasurerg Virginia Glenn and Delamere Baldwin, Social Chair- meng Max Levine, Yell Leader, and Charles Weesner, Publicity Chairman. Arvid immediately proved himself an efficient leader by suggesting and ably conducting a picnic at Brookside Park, Pasadena. The usual wrangling over class colors terminated in a satisfactory choice of coral and gray over other combinations of the parts of the spectrum. After Christmas vacation, over a hundred Senior B's moved upward to the eighth term in school and across the hall into 402, at the same time ac- quiring the title of Senior A. The first event of importance in the term was class elections. Donald Tyler was given the sole privilege of beating the officers table with the gavel, while Thelma Creel was an overwhelming choice for Vice President. Clara Bixler and George Staff were chosen Treasurers, Margaret Perry and James Conley were elected Social Chairmeng Uriel Gerecht and Charles Weesner being elected yell leaders. A short time after elections the class journeyed to Switzer's Camp, where they enjoyed several feeds, snowballing, and hikes to surrounding peaks. The success of the outing was due to the efforts of the social chairmen. The crowning event of the first ten weeks was when the Senior Essays began to come in. The subjects varied from "Kindergarten Work" to "Graduation" and from "Flowers" to "New Worlds and Old." Soon after the relaxation from satisfaction of having done a difficult task well, the time came for taking pictures for the Almanac, get- ting cards printed and graduation announcements engraved. Nellie Onstine was selected to write the class will: Doris Gattwinkle was chosen to write the class prophecy and Charles Weesner to write the class history. The present Senior A class was the largest graduating class in the history of the school. Among its members are many past school notables. There are two Student Body Presidents: three Second Vice-Presidents and Boys' Self Government Presidents of the Student Body: fourteen Athladelphians, or lettermen of the school, six of whom earned letters in football, four in track and four in tennis: three athletic team captains: three team managers: twenty-eight tetralphas, or members of the highest scholarship societyg seven inter-scholastic and inter- class debatersg twenty-six persons who have participated in either a play or an opera in Franklin: six Seniors in the Boys' Glee Club and eight in the Girls' Glee Clubg twelve Student Council members and one president, two Press editors, or editors of the school paperg one school yell leader, fourteen boys in the self, government and sixteen girlsg and eighteen club presidents. When graduation time is over, it will be with a feeling of regret that the class leaves the familiar halls of Franklin. The class is proud to be graduated from Franklin. Although the largest graduating class in the school's history, it hopes that it has been some quality as well as quantity, and will be remem- bered as it will always remember Franklin. 28 . ,XM liululiax Allison Lyle Hnldridge lrvnv Alvock IJPIZIIIIPIT' l-Inldw lAllll'0llK'0 Allvu Rosv Cillllihllll K+-ilh Belmzln XVinifr4-fl llvnson l'l:u'u liixlvl' Arthur Brady Thelma Urevl Iieprzm l:l'1ldfOl'd 29 .lzxmvs P01111-y Mm-ian Eaton Clifford llush Lorvlte Crist, Myrna Field liolrerl Coyle Doris f3r2lttXYlllk6'l Hzirtmzm Angst, f:t'Ol'f.Z'k'l'1ll'lilHl' Ellen .ljIlSkOll'I Rollin lllnflold Bertha Eddzirds 30 x ' , , , 1 ly. 5+ Qs- , Ixvd Ifussoll 1I:11'gv1l'0l Grolthourw Stark Fox 1,1-lm iiivhl lun-in 1:I'l't'll Arthur l":'iwim:m YiI'RiI1iZl ills-lm IH-un Ifuslvr I url Foslvl' Hstcllv Gilman tlvorgv Ifus:-0 I-'lm'vnr'0 Hzlmi 31 c ' x Fred Hayn Elizabeth Hayn Morris Gulstine 'Phyra Hoffman l"lorem'e HayS Raymond Rivhardson Verna Hinek Uriel Gereeht Leo Gres-IK Gertrude Hays Arthur Handcock Hazel Hagan 32 , I x f:I'lll'V2l .I0r'd:1n Donald Muff' Alim- Holfin-11 Paul Long' Clay Long.: Hvlun Hook Iloltiv Smilh llyllis .lamvs Agnos 'Ivy Max Levine Ida Johnson 'I'In-rc-s:1 Slvrnlwr 33 N - n , V 3 A L Murlyn Ritzius H0110 Nations Lclaml Pruslon Ilonmm Mm'K'11m Marion Kim.: Gordon Ncwvll Luvilf' Logsdon 12:-rlmhzwd Hm- Iuck Samsom Dorothy King Frzmk Mc'Cleury Meme-l Norris 31 Q , .- 4 z S II:u'ry Smith Gladys Olsvn Llwillv I'il'0ll .Im-k Sm-hw:-ize-r 1:11100 Nottlvson Hvlon Prlrlin Af2lI'RllUI'i10 I'01'ry Imuisv 1111-3.29.1 Furl Sllllblllllfilxlli AI1'l'I'liilh Pvnirs Nvlliv f3llStillt' L00 Shvvly 35 N X ,Xi V 1 5.

Dear Alma Mater, tried and true, we'll never fail to honor you! To Senior'B's, that saintly crowd, in which no bad eggs are allowed, we leave the halos round our hair, which temporarily rest there while loving folks to left and right give praise on graduation night . To Senior B's we also leave our last-term books-ah, how we grieve! If pages seem unused and white, remember, we're extremely bright! While some wise guys, who would be Hip, have scoffed at our known scholarship, this mantle, maybe soiled a bit, should fall on shoulders it will fit. From what we hear about the hall, the juniors need it worst of all. We also leave to them the right to bag all offices in sight. To Sophomores, who work so hard and learn old theorems by the yard, we leave a bag of out-grown "threes,' which may be useful in a squeezeg also the privilege to plague incoming scrubs who meekly beg to be directed in their fright: "Take elevator on the right!" To Freshmen we'll be extra nice: we'll leave them loads of good advice -a book on "How and When to Bluff," by one who knows how, true enough: another book on "When You're Late, Some Fine Excuses Up to Dateng a bunch af pamphlets full of meat: "Exams We've Passed," "All Tests Com- plete."

Tetralphas, we regret to go-we know that you will miss us so. We fear you cannot carry on with nearly all your members gone. Our janitors, those men of grit who never do complain a bit, are hereby willed, by hearty Vote, the senior essays that we wrote. To this, dear Mrs. Church agrees-so burn at once, or sooner, please! The Faculty, heroic crew, who've worked so hard to pull us through- to them we leave, with real wet tears, the pride that's coming with the years in taking tow-head reprobates and making high-school graduates. 38 Do ghosts return?

PLACEg A railroad station. Curtain rises on stage, containing two railroad benches, ticket office, and has the general appearance of a railway station. Enters from the left a traveling man, who walks with impatient stride while he swings a newspaper. It is joe Handley, himself, aged by ten years. JOE-Pink trees and yellow branches! Of all the arrogant self nerve and collossal foolishness. lf this paper dares to use my name again without my free and absolute approval, it shall never more print advertisements for "HANDLE.Y'S SLIPLESS VASELlNE.." My honored name shall not be taken in vain. Qlinter a train porter, PORTER-No, your name shall not be taken in vain, or taken any other way, gnyway that is what the ladies say. Where do you want your bags, ir? JOSEPH--I know not, neither do l care. PORTER-You sew not, neither do you spin? No need to tell me that, why you are as bad as a girl that used to be in my class of Summer '24 of FRANKLIN high school. This girl, GENEVA JORDAN, took a home economics course, learned to cook and sew, and all that old-fashioned stuff, graduated, got married, and was so surprised that she forgot all she had learned. Her husband died of painter's colic, because she got her rouge box mixed up with the red pepper can. Yes, that certainly was one funny and illustrious class, why you know- JOE-Do you mean to stand there and tell me that you graduated from Franklin, and that you were a member of the Summer class of '24? Why so was l, and so were some of my business associates! PORTER-Nothing else but! l owe my present great rise in the world to V the foundation l started to build in Franklin High. My name's MAEDER, ARVID MAEDER. JOE-Not old Arvid, president pro-tem of the Commercial Club? Why l am JOE HANDLEY. ARVlD-The chemistry shark and dignified chairman of the C. C. Board. fThey embrace and weep upon each others shouldersl "Should auld acquaintance be forgot?" Tell me all you know about that wild and wonderful class! Come, let's sit down. fThey sit down on one of the benchesj. 40 JOE-Well, fiirst you ought to be particularly interested to know that THYRA HOFFMAN is my silent partner. You know she was always rather silent. ARVID--Oh, was she? l never noticed it. JOE--Yes, and LORETTE CRIST is our secretary. She is just as charming as ever, if not more so. ARVID-Could that be possible, the more so l mean. Ohl by the way, how is your business. old man? Any trouble with competitors, et cetera? JOE-Only two really dangerous competitors, ELLEN MAE DASCOM and MARION EATON, who some time ago formed a partnership, are now manufacturing a greaseless vaseline, which interferes very greatly with the sale of HANDLEY'S FAMOUS SLIPLESS VASELINE. However, the famous hairdresser, MARJORIE ELMORE, urges all her patrons to use my product even if she doesn't use it herself. You see she is especially in- terested in the hair culture of monkeys and grey turtles. She once told me that she never became interested in the subject until she chose "Hair" as the topic for her Senior Essay. Speaking of Marjorie, reminds me of ARTHUR BRADY, did you know that he was a famous portrait paint- er in Greenwich Village? He has taken the name of Allegro Ban- ana-Bandana, Excellency, and passes for a distinguished Italian count. ARVlD-Such is life, but what have we here? QBoth turn and look off- stage--right at some commotion. A maid enters hurriedly, it is LUCILLE LOGSDONJ. MAID-Oh, come quick and help my lady with her trunk. What kind of a porter do you think you are anyway? fTakes Arvid by the arm and drags him off stagel. JOE-flto himselfj-Well, really, but of course we can't all be rich and famous.

HARTMANN ANGST is seriously ill. You see he manufactures jellybeans, and he became so fond of them and ate so many of the delicacies that his bones began to turn to jelly. However, there is still great hope for his re- covery, as the great surgeon KEITH BELMAN, has charge of him, while he has two private nurses, who are none other than VERLA SINCLAIR and AGNES IVY.

You see after he sings on the cracked ones the people don't mind the cracks anymore, the singing is so much worse. BERTHA EDDARDS is a sort of human test tube for the various gum manufacturers. She chews the different makes and brands, then grades them according to their elasticity, durability and variety of flavor.

JOE.-His friends MAX LEVINE and MAURICE GULSTINE are in charge of one of the most expansive orphan asylums in the world. They are trying to bring up the children on special diet and exercises. The diet consists chiefly of tablets containing calories and vitimines which are made by EARL FOSTER. MARY SHEDENHELM hand carves all the dumbells the children use for their exercises. 43 ALL-That is all very wonderful. We certainly had a successful and com- petent class. LUCILLE-I suppose you heard all about the beauty contest that ARTHUR FREIDMAN won and that now he is demonstrating cosmetics for the benefit of those in the world who are not so fortunate as he.

Last week, HAZEL HAGEN, VERNA HINCK, FLORENCE HAYS, HAROLD HOLLISTER, HAROLD HUMBROCK and PAUL LONG all left from this station for the sea coast where they were invited to be guests of the millionairess, ALICE HOLDEN, on her private yacht. They were all tickled silly, too. LUCILLE-No wonder, LEO GREGG is the first mate. CLARA-Humph, I heard someone say that her yacht was only an old battle- ship that had been junked and made over for her by CLAY LONG the famous shipbuilder. He married an under classman, you know, but they say they are very happy. You never can tell, tho. DORIS--Speaking of happy, did you know that IDA JOHNSON was a judge A and has fined LEO SHEELY three times for too elaborate dressing, and CARL STUBBLEFIELD twice for reckless diving? ARVID-ELWOOD THOMPSON came strutting in here one time last year. and talk about dress, man, that boy was dressed from his ears to his sole. The "Yellow Press" calls him 'Broadwayis Mannikinf' Speak- ing of the "Yellow Press," STARK FOX is editor of one of the yellowest in history. They even print the paper on yellow paper. DORIS--I beg to differ with you. Mr. Fox is editor of the paper which I represent. We are not at all yellow but are merely years in advance of the other papers of the country. The yellow paper appeals to the artis- tic sense of the editor and was designed by DOROTHY KING, his private secretary. BERNARD REESE and MELVIN MEIER execute it in great swaths and hanclpaint it on "Ten league pieces of paper, with brushes of camel's hair.', TRAIN MASTER- C enters, -All trains-no-- DORIS-We don't want all trains.

It is really amazing. just listen-ALL-aboard- ALL-Oh, Yes, yes, but do you know any news? DON-Do I, just listen. CHARLES WEESNER was winner of the Tennis championship at the Olympic games. I saw him after it was over and he said, "I always knew I would do it." LUCILLE-Ha, ha, isn't that just like him? Didn't LAURENCE MAGIE play also? GORDON NEWELL won the sprinters title and FRANK McCLEARY and DONALD MUFF are now considered world champion swimmers, since they broke a record by swimming fifty yards in two hours and a half. DON--CORRINNE ROGERS is a great tragedienne playing in every kind of comedy imaginable. Her audiences always weep when they are at the theater and also after they get home. CTO think that they had gone., By the way, HELEN PARTIN and MEREDITH PEAIRS are both ushers at the Coliseum. GEORGE STAFF is a famous figure on Wall street and claims that he learned the rudiments of business back at Franklin when he was always trying to get the boys to pay up their class dues. GLADYS OLSON and HARRY SMITH are successful Alpine climbers in the winter, and go in for that human Hy business of climbing buildings in the summer. Their motto is "When we're up, we're up, when we're down we're down, but we hope never to be upside down." LUCILLE-I should think not, in their profession. THELMA-JACK SCHWEIZER has done so much for the government that he is to be presented with a national forest all his own. Then he can spend all his time whittling and dreaming about forestry. EVELYN SHOOS and RUTH RITZMAN were both married shortly after leaving school and formed a society called, "The Franklin Wiverettes." lt is quite a success and almost controlls Los Angeles politics. In fact it was the chief motive power behind the "High Heels For Women" campaign. MARGARET SIGAFOOSE, BETTIE SMITH, THERESA STERNBERGER and HOPE NATIONS are all active members, more or less. CLARA-That reminds me of the Bachelors Club. FRED WHITE is the president. DORIS-Who would have "thunk" it? CLARA--What ever became of FRED FASSETT? DORIS--Oh, he is editor on what used to be the "Chicago Daily Sun." but he changed the name to "The Windy City Evening Star." NEWTON JOHNSON is back at Franklin teaching Journalism, wild horses couldn't drag him away. CALLEY TWENTYONE ...... FRANKLIN ,..... FINLEY ...... MAY 20 ........ ARVID-Yes, that is all very well, but did you know that ALBERT WINTER has been made a Duke or Count or something by the King of Hamburger? You see, he went over there with his saxaphone and business ability and came home with a title. Someone said he played until they were almost ready to give him anything to get rid of him. ALVA WATRY is playing violin in the Queen of England's orchestra, too. Of course, you know the Queen is MARGARET WALKER. When the Crown Prince was over here on a visit she met him and so attracted him that he made her queen. It made Mamma queen awfully angry. Don't you remember when Margaret was a princess in a play, she never realized that it would really come true some day, then. 45 DORIS-Well this is certainly very interesting, but I really have to go to work. Joe, that paper that you have there, isn't it a "Screaming Scandal?" JOE.--Yes, did you want it? fstarts to give it to her then stops, Why look here,-all the headlines.

It is expected that he will receive the orange pinwheel, given each year by REGAN BRADFORD, for acts of special bravery. As to the wreck, MARY SHOWALTER and LOUISE GREGG suffered shocks to their marcels and manicures. They were rushed directly to the hospital and it is hoped they will recover before many years.

The representa- , tives, elected by the faculty from members of the graduating 5 class, are those standing highest in these qualifications. K- fmi The purpose of the society is to bring together a group of l J! I young people who are interested in their city and are willing to ,fl ill help in the betterment of civic conditions. This work is pWMlffiL. made interesting by a series of addresses on civic affairs '--1 15" delivered before the members by some prominent citizen. Among the various charitable activities in which the members participate is the annual Christmas party which is given at the junvenile Detention Home. The Ephebians from the graduating classes to date are: Fred Axe fsummer 'l8Jg janet Louise Johnson fsummer 'l9J3 Roland Windmuelled Csummer '20Jg Anna Fitzhugh and Kenneth Belknap fsummer '2l lg Ernest Wills fwinter 'ZZDQ Maxwell Burke and Lucille Stone fsummer 'ZZJ3 Phillip Cuthbert fwinter 'Z3Jg Alden Miller, Flossy Jolly and Franklin Roach fsummer '23J.

I shall feel the first faint trembling of spring in the southland And in autumn I shall tramp the mountain paths, Soft carpeted with gold and crimson fairy fans, And smell the dry brown leaves that crackle underfoot. The sea will be my mistress. I shall ride her in a white winged boat, And laugh defiance at her moods that threaten death. I love her breath that sets my blood atingle. Her breezes tantalize and lure the imagination. My journeys will take me ever on Towards sunset's golden promise. It always glows brightest beyond the next purple hill. It smiles and beckons from the farther port. I shall dance on a rocky shore beneath the pale midnight sun, And witness the shooting flames of the Aurora Borealis, The aroma and mystery of the orient draw me as a magnet. A white beach, sapphire water and lazy palms With the tropics' languorous magic. And I shall climb the jutting white peaks That throw back their heads and laugh into the very face of heaven Ah! it is morning in the world and I am young. G0 O Seni0r's Soliloquy By Nellie Onstine I Has that little scrub of the time long ago, Reached the distant goal that he longed for so? Well, l'm he, l guess, though l hardly know, -Ready to graduate. 2 When he climbed the steps in a timid way, He was whistling hard to keep fears at bay, But his pride was greater than mine today, -Ready to graduate. 3 Yes, l'm he no doubt, plus his vict'ries won, Plus the books he's read, plus his lessons done, Going home from school at the setting sun, -Ready to graduate. 4 He has helped to win, felt the thrill of cheers, And he's gulped back, too, the unbidden tears, When our losses came in the course of years, -Ready to graduate. 5 You'll excuse me please, while l wipe an eye, I'm a child no more, but I'd like to cry When l think of leaving Old Franklin High, -Ready to graduate. 6 But l'll whistle now as I did before, When I climbed the steps to the old front door- And I'll face whatever may be in store- -Ready to graduate. 61 His Dream By Newton Johnson. He groped in murky darkness, And with outstretched arms he fought In vain to seize the thinning shape, Of a something he had thought. Vainly he strove to comprehend, But conscience, that inner voice, Beckoned him on, into limitless space, Leaving for him no choice. Into the light and starlit night, Cleaving its way up to enternity, Out into distance and into the sky, Sighing then his soul took Hight. There on throne aloft and high, Ruling ever eternal day- Beneath a vast and jewled dome, His Creator held full sway- His soul advanced and kneeling there, With parted lips breathed its prayer. "Oh Lord of hosts and every nation, Reveal to me thine own creation." 62 Ode to My Lady Bug By Virginia Glenn You ain't got no four wheel brakes, Lady Bug, You can't take hills like some takes, Lady' Bug, But l'1l sit in ya' thru' thick and thin, You're a mighty good car for the shape you're in. You're a better car'n I am, Hunka Tin-Lady Bug. 2 You eat one gallon for eight miles, Lady Bug, You ain't in it with '24 styles, Lady Bug, But though it's time to retire QFiskeJ Don't hide your crank, your wheels are disk, And beside a Ford you run no risk, Lady Bug. 3 You're hard to start on a frosty morn, Lady Bug, Need some playful chokin' to get you warm, Lady Though your tail light's out most all the while, And your throttle weakens, and speeds a mile, just purr at the cop, and help me smile, Lady Bug. 4 Girls look at you with proud disdain, Lady Bug, Boys look with wistful eyes, in vain, Lady Bug, And even though your headlights glare, Like Ben Turpin's baby stare, Mama loves you, so there, there, Lady Bug. 63 Bug 1 2 E 5 . i 5 if 7 57. , '.,. , V V- - w A- . ,.,, , .

Realizing this the American Bar Association established the custom of con- ducting, each year, a National Constitution Oratorical Contest with high schools from all over the nation participating. The plan was quickly recog- nized by five hundred of the leading newspapers of the country. each district taking part in the contest having a sponsoring newspaper. The second annual contest proved a marvelous success for Franklin and for Franklin's representative, Don Tyler, who, after the elimination of the representatives from all the other city high schools, won the Southern California championship and a prize of seven hundred and fifty dollars. The following week he won the distinction of being the champion high school orator of the Pacific Coast and also the honor of representing this section at the final contest which was held at Washington. At this meeting, which was presided over by President Coolidge, he defeated six other orators from different parts of the United States. The winner received a prize of S3500 and achieved the championship of the entire country in high school oratory. Probably there has never been in this country so widespread an attempt to awaken interest in our government. The success of the experiment has been clearly proved by the interest which has been shown by the general public as well as by the high school students. 61 N pgswmm H3 I Q A Successful Calamity S a sharp contrast to our last year's school play, "Trojan Women," A the dramatics department presented the popular modern comedy, "A Successful Calamity," written by Claire Kummer. This play, wx A effervescing with clever humorous lines, was one of the best ever N given at Franklin. The leading characters, Donald Tyler, La Von s di l , XM, vii Qi, 15' X Pierson, Audrey Lippit, and Donald Hook, seemed to live their parts and understand them in a way which would be a credit to Q persons much older than they. Every character seemed to fit ""- ' "-- ffl ' his part as though it had been written especially for him. Those who saw the play agreed that this, with our former productions, has created a high quality of dramatics at Franklin. There are two lines of work in our dramatics department: one takes up the acting and finished product such as, "A Successful Calamity," as the audience sees itg the other takes up the production of a play, the real work that gets little credit at time of presentation. 5 '2 5 more j 5 .- a X l i ' ' 1 N f --1 1 .-22511 ,ff lb HJ ,.7' 66 One-Act Plays --11 OR students interested in dramatic art, Franklin High School presents some unusual opportunities. Mrs. Behymer and Mrs. E' Miller, members of the faculty, are two of the best dramatic coaches in the city. With their steady work and untiring effort B I they have developed the students' dramatic ability to the high- lm est degree. 'IQ Mrs. Miller who directed "Twelfth Night" this term spe- cializes in the study of Shakespeare and her Shakespeare Study Class for sturents who not only want to put on plays of Shake- speare but also want to study his wonderful style and technique. Frank- lin was represented at the annual Shakespeare Festival by these students giv- ing scenes from "Macbeth" Students interested in dramatic production have wonderful opportuni- ties in all branches of the work, as there are classes in Expression l and ll, Dramatics l, Il, and Advanced and, for those who wish to cast, direct. and produce plays, there is a Dramatic Production Class. Each student may direct a play a term, or specialize in different lines such as make-up, publicity, cos- tumes, properties or prompting. During the year this class usually puts on eight or ten plays. They are cast from the Dramatics l and Il classes, and all the work is under the super- vision of Mrs. Behymer. Mrs. Behymer herself produced one school play which this year was "A Successful Calamity." The first term the one act plays given were: Mrs. Church's "What Men Live Byng "The Shirt," directed by Marjorie Elmore, and "The Trysting Place," directed by Doris Gattwinkle. The second term Murray l-lertenstein directed "Anisya," a very clever Russian melodramag Doris Gattwinkle directed "Aria da Cape," a comedy: Jocelyn Creighton, who is posting this year, gave "A Merry Merry Cuckoong Don Gordon directed the amusing comedy, "68-70 Berkeley Placeng Corinne Rogers directed the old Greek comedy, "l..ysistrata," by Aristophanes, which showed how little the problems have changed from ancient times to modern. These plays all helped to build the fine reputation Franklin has had in dramatics. 67 r , , I f ic... F-C Pirates of Penzance AST year's successful operatic production "Pinafore" was equal- ed or perhaps surpassed by "The Pirates of Penzance," the comic opera presented this year by the Boys' and Girls' Glee Clubs and the Orchestra. This Gilbert and Sullivan opera was the second big musical production in the history of Franklin and with the hard work and inexhaustible efforts of the musi- Boys Glee Club directorg and Mr. Gilson, the Orchestra lead- er the opera was a complete success as every one who saw the ' cal,-Miss Rankin, Girls' Glee Club director, Mrs. Watson, gllilljl ' J 1 . production will assert. l..aVon Pierson as "Mabel," sang and acted her leading part superbly. George Staff held the part of "Frederick" the "Hero," and 'his clear tenor voice blended well with LaVon's beautiful soprano. Don Tyler capped his successful school activities in this last effort, as the "model Major-Generalug this part carried out the humor that ran through the whole opera. Virginia Ostrom's rich contralto voice enhanced the part of Freclerick's old nurse, whose misunderstanding of the words "pirate" and "pilot" was the cause of all the trouble. Josephine Peairs and Gladys Moore were doublecast for the part of "Kate" The Misses Edith and Isabel, Mabel's other charming sis- ters, were well-characterized by Helen Briggs and Ada Fisher. "Edward," the Sergeant of Police, whose word is law and who makes a grand pretext of enforcing it, was also doublecast by Jerre Hewitt and Aldred Foster. "Samuel," a pirate lieutenant, was portrayed by James Conley. Richard, the pirate chief, was ferociously sung and acted by Charles Weesner. Well-known critics in the city declared this opera to be one of the best given this year. The well-drilled choruses received much praise for their precision and teamwork. The orchestra deserved the many compliments it received for the support and beautiful work done under the direction of Mr. Gilson. G9 Twelfth Night The production of "Twelfth Night" this year was the most unique and colorful of any of Shakespeare's plays that have ever been put on at Franklin. This year Mrs. Miller tried to break away from the usual custom of giving merely one act plays, or one act of a play, and gave a full-length production of "Twelfth Night." The lead was taken 'by Delamere Baldwin who portrayed the part of the handsome Duke Orsino as only Delamere could portray it. Mayme Craven acted excellently the part of Viola: and the part of Sebastian, her brother, was well taken by Kenneth Holland. Mary Louise Wages enriched the play by her interpretation of Olivia and by the beautiful quality of her voice. Murray Hertenstein put life into the whole play with his realistic representation of Sir Toby. Jack Thomson made an excellent foil. joseph Handley gave a very finished production of Malvolio, and Barbara Streit made a charming Maria. There are not enough adjectives to praise the work of the whole cast nor the splendid skill and help given by Mrs. Miller who directed the play and who is the faculty advisor to the Shakespeare Study Club which sponsored the play. i 'lffligd 1 69 W,.,.,4,TiQ,4 QM, Zllgjll Ti MSX Lil FF L 'n N I r , Q H4 is ' , W-AMA., . , J, s um kr- .- f f 5. A G.: l HE office of Student Body President of Franklin High School is the highest possible office that a student may attain during his lax' high school life. Donald Tyler and Jack Schweizer made excellent leaders for the last two terms and although we had poor luck in athletics, and other school activities, these fellows, with their co-officers, kept up the spirit and morale of EH- f- rm, Franklin to the highest degree. The present system of student JN ' body organization of Franklin has proved so good that it has suffered but few minor changes although it was instituted for a student body of but 200 members. The president is elected, as are all other officers except the business managers and historians, the term just preceding that of his term of office. The president's duties are to arrange for and conduct the regular Friday morning auditorium assemblies, preside over the weekly student council meeting, cooperate with Mr. Moore at all times in any undertaking, and in all situations that may develop during his term of administration. All the student body presidents of the city high schools belong to the Student Body President's Forum which meets monthly, at one of the high schools where business of interest to all the schools is decided. At the meeting held at Franklin, a luncheon was served those who attended and the question of having a high school Memorial Day exhibition in the Coliseum was brought up but was not decided upon until the next meeting, held at another school. Franklin has been most fortunate in having such fellows as Jack Schweizer and Don Tyler for presidents, so the most we can hope for is that we shall always have students of their type to elect. 72 CI'lfIll1NfIlIPC urn BUAIUI .gyg ffl w l HE past term marked the First anniversary of the Citizenship G Credit system of Franklin High School. Without doubt there W has never been such success shown to a new and unfamiliar AQ. 0 2 system in a high school. The plan has not only proved its pt 1 worth but has gained the admiration and respect of the entire citizenship of the school. uk The idea is a radical departure from the old detention and ll gag! merit system for it not only rates the student as a good or bad -If 554 citizen but also helps to construct in the minds of the students a certain respect for conventional social order. In fact it is definitely known that the punishable offenses have almost been cut in half since the institution of the Citizenship Credit plan. Briefly summarized the system is as follows: Every student at the beginning of each semester is given a fresh start with one hundred credits which may be augmented by service to the school, or may be diminished by an offense committed against the social code of the school. Offenders are judged by the citizenship credit board which is composed of a chairman, the two vice-presidents of the student body, and a faculty advisor. An associate chairman alternates with the regular chairman as two court sessions a day are necessary. Without doubt the new system has proved the most practical of all plans and, following Franklin's example, it has already been adopted by many of the local high schools. 73 as Q, l 3 Q 1 1 3 QL 74 Student Boby Officers Y lTl'l the exception of Business Manager and School Historian, Q all student body officers, other than the President, are elected fini, -"' the last week of the term just preceding their term of office. l These officers are: first vice-president, an office held by a ,y 25d girl who automatically becomes president of the Girls' Self- ll, 43 i Governmentg and secretary. The business manager and school i historian are the only appointed officers of the student body. 1,4 The first term Margaret Hitch and Jack Schweizer were first and second vice-presidents respectively, while Cameron Coyle was the secretary. Darrel Morgan was business manager but the post of school historian was left vacant. The second term, La Von Pierson held the office of first vice-presidentg Arthur Brady that of second vice-president, and Margaret Dresser that of secretary. Albert Winter was business manager and Betty Creswell was the first school historian. The office of school historian was provided for in the original constitution of Franklin but no attention was paid to the filling of that office until this last term, when, at the instigation of Miss Glick, Betty Creswell was appointed. The duty of this officer is to collect all the material concerning Franklin that is published in any newspaper and put it into a huge scrapbook, especial- ly made for this purpose. Betty has done excellent work in this line and has made a fine collection of clippings that may be of interest to all future Frank- lin students. All the officers have done fine work during their terms of administration ln helping build up a respect for the Franklin laws and customs.

O 1 75 I i ,HE Student Council is a group of boys and girls elected from , each class to meet, under the supervision of lVlr. Moore, in or- , 'I der to make laws for the governing of Franklin High School. M With the Student Body President as chairman, the Student l Council meets every Wednesday at class-room period to talk ' ' over and pass regulations which will benefit the Student Body ' as a whole. ,, X K The longest record of attendance, that of eight terms, is " held by Donald Tyler, who has represented his class each term. At the beginning of this school year a week was given to educational "and" calls so that the newer students might learn about the governmental organizations of Franklin. The Maud" call, of which the Student Council had charge, consisted of a mock council meeting, so that the other students might learn what the Student Council does and its method of procedure. lt made a campaign against "Pops-icle" sticks which had been carelessly dropped on the grounds by the students. The Student Council displayed as evidence a string the length of the stage to which "Pops-icle" sticks were tied at inter- vals of about an inch. The past year this group of well-selected students has done much for the betterment of work and play at Franklin. 76 .kg .5- Ps am ,ss O organization in the high schools of Los Angeles could be more popular or beneficial in promoting a spirit of friendship among the younger and older girls than the Girls' League. The if-'WN "Friendly School," as we are proud to call it, has always held this L .0 4 motto before it, and has the reputation among all other schools V of being one of the best spirited and most democratic body of students in the city. The Girls' League has done much towards bringing girls -:V together and making the freshman girls feel as though they were a part of the school. Officers are elected at the beginning of every term and in a few weeks they start the ball rolling by giving a big Girls' League party to which every girl in the school is invited. At these parties the girls play games, dance, and see a "home talent" entertainment. Each "scrub" is given a sponsor who accompanies her to the party and introduces her to many of the older girls. The proteges are watched and aided by their sponsors in school work and in any of the many difficulties that are embarrasing to the new student. This year a new movement has occupied the Girls' League Maud" calls and has proved very instructive and helpful in enabling girls to "find" them- selves. This is the studying of vocations for girls. Franklin has been honored by many enlightening talks on these different vocations. T7 RANKl..lN'S Board of Finance is as important to the smooth functioning of our school life as the kite was to Benjamin Qi Franklin's experiment in chaining up lightning with a kite and key. lt consists of all the student body officers, including m the editor of the "Press," and is under the head of the Business ffl 5 Manager who is appointed by merit, usually from the commer- u cial department. His job is one that does not get the glory that I i others do, nervertheless it is one of the most important and dif- i ficult jobs in the school. The Business Manager must be an advertising manager, a bookkeeper, a capable ticket salesman, a gate-keeper, an auditor, a collector and a general manager. Darrell Morgan and Albert Winter carried on their work this past year with extraordinary ability. Each term they put out a report of Franklin's finances, showing an increase in funds. This proves, more than any other thing, efficiency as financial executives. Mr. Bullock, the faculty advisor, has done much to help the students learn the most efficient methods in keeping a clear record of the school's finances. Everything is done under his supervision and when a student has been under his training and has had experience in this work, he is ready to enter the commercial world. All money matters and appropriations are handled through the Board of Finance. 78 Hx 1-""""' HE Girls' Self-Government is the executive body, which, with the EQ- Boy's Self-Government, carries out the laws made by the Student Council. The group consists of girls elected, one from ffl S each class room, to maintain order among the students, keep yfqx the grounds clean, and do everything to better school life. They 5? have charge of the lost and found department where lost articles it are turned in to be claimed by the owners. rx "fat" The president of this organization appoints girls in addition ' to those elected to help do the hall duty work. The girls hold court with jury trials and try cases of misdemeanor. Margaret Hitch and La Von Pierson did excellent work this year in connection with the Citizenship Credit Board. They have shown their executive ability in carrying on a court of fairness and justice for all. N IJ The Boys' Self Government at Franklin enjoyed its best year under the leadership of Jack Schweizer, president for the first term, and Arthur Brady, president for the second. Since its earliest days the F. H. S. Self Government has been pre- eminently successful, but the school year 192 3-24, with Schweitzer and Brady heading a most efficient corps of officers, saw the best government yet enjoyed by the school. The members, numbering nearly one hundred, were able to keep good order at all times, in all occasions. The group saw to it that people were kept out of the halls during the fifth and sixth, double lunch, periods. This was the hardest task of the year, but, like all others, was most successfully accomplished. It also was due to the combined boys' and girls' self govern- ment that the halls were kept as quiet as they were during the first and ninth periods. ln keeping the grounds clean, in keeping order at athletic games and meets, in keeping order at aud calls and in the halls, in doing all these things, this year's self government could not be surpassed. Much of the credit is due to the presidents, Jack Schweizer and Arthur Brady, under whose leadership nothing could fail. XO 3?

To put it straight, you're out of date, And don't belong in here! The French Club has had a year of great activity. ln the first place the Causerie, composed of all the French students in the various city high schools, was held this year at Franklin, under the able supervision of Miss Dunbar. Cent trois vingt dix-neuf francs were sent to Maisons Claires home of poor sick children by the club. The omcers of last term were: president, jerre Hewitt: vice-president, Newton Kelman: secretary, joseph Handley: treasurer, Alice Holden: social chairman, Josephine Peans. This term's officers are: president, Jerre Hewitt: vice-president, Elsie Lenhart: secretary, Mary Louise Wages: treasurer, Betty Church: social chair- man, Margaret Packard. Spanish Club We senoritas welcome you, Si, si-and the senors, too-, If you can talk the pure Castile, With graceful bow and ways genteel, And speak it soft and pleasing, too, As native Spaniards always do! Every club has its distinctive features. During the first term, the club had a wonderful Mexican fiesta at which real Mexican games were played and Mexican favors distributed. ln the second term, the club had several candy sales for the benefit of the needy Spanish children in Los Angeles. The first terrn's oflicers were: president, Marie C-ore: vice-president, Donald Nichols: secretary, Mary Showalter: treasurer, Arthur Handcock: social committee, Lillian Gould and Arnold Therkelson. The second term's oflicers were: president, Marie Gore: secretary- treasurer, Edith Vifhitford: chairman of program committee, Gladys Moore: press reporter, Faith Cortelyou. , Commercial Club "Clean Business"-'that's our goal, Xve strive with hearts and soul! As we ride by--some day- You'll tip your hat and say: i'You see that guy from Franklin High! "I-le learned and made it pay!" The Commercial students have shown their enthusiasm this past year by the reorganization of the Commercial Club. During the last term, they sponsored a most worthy project--"The Daisy jean Concert," the proceeds of which went to provide pictures and works of art for Franklin. The officers for the fall term were: president, Arnold Therkelsong vice- president, James Conley: secretary-treasurer, Lucile johnson: parliamentarian, Lola Hotston: publicity manager, Charles Weesner: social chairman, Alice Healy. The officers for the spring term were: president, Thyra Hoffman: vice- president, Harold Ponder: secretary-treasurer, Mabel Norris: parliamentarian, Arvicl Maeder: social chairman, Helen Morgan. 82 FRIQN CLUB fmwyll QLVB 41031311 QRCIAI, J unto Club We can argue long And come back strong, We of the ,Iunto Crew- Vlfe can reason well, We can make points tell, Though backers may be few. This club probably requires as high qualifications on the part of its mem- bers as any club at Franklin. To become a member of the ,Iunto Club, a student must be able to present, before the members, a good argument on some topic of his own choosing. The first term's officers were: president, Murray Hertenstein: vice-presi- dent. Josephine Peairs: secretary-treasurer, Mary Barnsley: social chairman, Warren Garwick. The second term's officers were: president, George Manns: vice-president, Leona McKinney: secretary-treasurer, William Manns: social chairman, Dewey Thomas. History Club We think that ancient history is an alluring mystery, We want to learn just why it happened so- Why old King Tut was mumified Why Latin lived when Virgil died Are things that ev'ry girl and boy should know. ln spite of the irregularity of meetings, because of the double lunch periods, the History Club has been very active this year. It was through this club that Franklin secured the films "The Connecticut Yankee" and "Joan of Arc," the proceeds of which were used to build the bulletin board in the main hall. The first term's officers were: president, Max Levine: vice-president, Frances Robertson: secretary-treasurer, Simpson Singer: social chairman, Evelyn Turner. The second term's officers were: president, Oscar Quave: vice-president, Max Levine: secretary, Nellie Onstine: treasurer, Frances Robertson: social chairman, Charles Weesner: publicity manager, Gordon Newell. Tetralpha Society We're wise, they say, but ,full of fun, We're busy as can be, Now if you doubt the truth of this, just make four l's and see. ln the Tetralpha Society, the student deserving of scholarship honors receives his reward. So the Tetralphas are members of one of the most ex- clusive clubs-one to which a combination of brains and work is the only key. To become an active member of this society, a student must receive a grade of ul" in four solids for two semesters. l-lowever, he may become an associate member if he receives a grade of "l " in four solids for one semester. The first term's ofhcers were: president, Margaret Dresser: vice-presi- clent, Ada Fisher: treasurer, Thelma Creel: secretary, Beryl Alderson. The second term's officers were: president, Jack Miller: vice-president. Leona McKinney: treasurer, Ruth Wallace: secretary, Ada Fisher. Sl J UNQTO CLUB mm una 1LI1g5.LvuAf0i lLIv Shakespeare Study Club We're glad that William Shakespeare wrote, Although his plays we have to quote. We practice hard on William's lines And through his work our genius shines. The Shakespeare Study Club is one of the finest clubs in the school. lts purpose is to make every one love and appreciate Shakespeare and his works. The success of the production of "Twelfth Night," which was given by the club, was largely due to the much appreciated help and direction of Mrs. Miller, the faculty advisor for the Shakespeare Study Club. The first term's officers were: president, Newton Johnston, first vice- president, Doris Gattwinkelg second vice-president, Geneva Jordang secretary, Vera Keyling treasurer, jane Pratt. The second term's officers were: president, Doris Gattwinkelg first vice- president, Barbara Streitg second vice-president, Murray Hertensteing secre- tary, Bettie Smithg treasurer, Joseph Handley. Masquers We're artistic and dramatic But still quite democratic An actor you must be or you'll not do. Vve give a formal tryout At which you either die out Or else you're welcomed here among the few. The cream of Franklin's dramatic talent forms the Masquers Club, which is one of the most active in the school. During the past term they were very fortunate in securing Miss Mary Agnes Doyle who read "Peg O' My Heart" at an aud call which will long be remembered as one of the most delightful in the history of Franklin. The first term's officers were: president, Elizabeth Mattinglyg vice-presi- dent, Delamere Baldwing secretary-treasurer, Arthur Brady: social chairmang Ruth Mattingly. The second term's officers were: president, Melva Zimmermang vice- president, Thelma Creelg secretary-treasurer, Clara Bixlerg and social chair- man, Murray l-lertenstein. Marionettes ' ,lust see the darling Marionettes See how the hero grieves and frets, The villian stalks upon the stage And shakes his sweeties in a rage! They're just like other human guys With wooden heads and painted eyes! The Marionettes are the oldest little playfellows in the world. Their history stretches back into the Middle Ages. The Marionette classes started in Franklin two years ago under the direc- tion of Miss Hodgkins and Mrs. Behymer. "Snow White" and "Six Who Pass While the Lentils Boil" were produced and "Three Wishes" was given in French before the French Causerie. "The Romancersf' adapted from Ros- tand, and "The Good-natured Dragon," which was written by Mrs. Church, this year's faculty advisor, were the plays produced this term. . . RG ef' JS. G. fum! PIAR LfIUDY C Girls' Athletic Club Vigor and strength have we, We're full of pep and fun, Our work is play-Let come what may, We'll face it ev'ry one. The Girls' Athletic Club is similar to the Athadelphians in as much as those girls who have been fortunate enough to win "letters" are eligible for membership. The Athletic Club girls compete with the different schools in the various sports and it is their special duty to take charge of the "play-day" program. The first term's officers were: president, Frances Rathwell: vice-presi- dent, Winifred Benson: secretary, Mildred Muse: treasurer, Madalin Braden. The second term's officers were: president, Lucille Picou: vice-presi- dent, Margaret Dresser: secretary, Gertrude Hays: treasurer, Helen House. The managers for the different teams are: Indoor, Margaret Magee: Track, Frances Rothwell: Tennis, Gertrude Hays. Girls' Dancing Club If your heart is light and cheery, And your feet do not grow weary As we teach you dainty steps they did of yore, Come and join us in our dancing, Soon in grace you'll be advancing, As you practice fancy steps upon the Hoor, The Girls' Dancing Club this year, under the direction of Miss Fuhr, has progressed wonderfully. During the first semester the girls of the club gave a program for their mothers and the women of the faculty. Each girl is writing a ballet this term, the best of which will be given at the beginning of the fall semester. The officers for the first term were: president, Mignonette Laws: vice- president, Genevieve Jones: secretary-treasurer, lone Pratt: program, Rosalie Middleton. The officers for the second term were: president, Winifred Benson: vice- president, Lola Hotston: secretary-treasurer, Gertrude Stein: press reporter, Melva Zimmerman: pianist, Elizabeth Marsden. Girls' Glee Club The Girls' Glee, the Girls' Glee, That's the club for you and me! Out How the notes from golden throats ln waves of harmony. During the first term, the Girls' Glee Club won much deserved popular- ity by singing before the student body at numerous aud calls. The greater part of the second term was spent working on the Gilbert and Sullivan opera, "The Pirates of Penzance" which was given in conjunction with the Boys' Glee Club and the Orchestra. ,The first term's officers were: president, Marcia Green: vice-president, Virginia King: secretary, LaVon Pierson: treasurer, Helen Hook: librarian, Dyllis james: press reporter, Catherine Williams. The second term's ofiicers were: president, LaVon Pierson: vice-presi- dent, Helen Owens: secretary, Helen Hook: treasurer, Margaret Darrow: li- brarian, Josephine Peaires: press reporter, Virginia Glenn. Vera Culp was the accompanist for both terms. 88 ,.- is , '49 nl s,144 String Ensemble Forget your work and trouble Throw down your Algebra- Come, let your spirits bubble, Be gay, sad hearts, be gay, The Franklin String Ensemble ls tuning up to playl The String Ensemble Class was organized last fall under the direction of Mr. Bock who wished to further interest and develop a better technique in the playing of string instruments. The music for many entertainments, in- cluding the production of "Twelfth Night," has been furnished by the String Ensemble. The players of the various instruments are: Violins, Virginia Abbot, Edith Whitfordf' Alva Watry, Gladys Moore, Marguerite Whitman, Frank McCleary, Russell Smithg Cello, Jerre l-lewittg Harp, Ethel Severin, Piano, Kathleen Day. , Orchestra Come rushing in, forget your cares, just listen while you may To Franklin's favorite merry airs- Our orchestra's to play! The Orchestra is one of the school's old "stand-lays" and being made up of a group of very dependable people, it can always be counted upon to con- tribute its share to any program. During the second term, it worked most industriously on its part in the "Pirates of Penzance" and should be heartily congratulated on its share of the opera's Success. The first term's officers were: president, Frank McClearyg vice-president, Katherine Jacobusg secretary-treasurer, Edith Whitfordg social chairman, Mar- garet Packardg librarian, Lynn Harris. The second term's officers were: president, Frank Mcclearyg vice-presi- dent, Edith Whitfordg secretary-treasurer, Alva Watryg social chairman, Arvid Maederg librarian, Marie Gore. Art club ln practice ever dutiful, We imitate the beautiful, And try to draw and paint the things we see When they want luncheon favors They come to us poor slavers, For they know we're the fount of artistry! Action is plentiful among the members of the Art Club. They gave a demonstration of their quality and quantity of spirit by being the only club in school to present a skit atthe Girls' League Hi Jinx. Now, this club's one great aim in life is to have a special aud call of its own, whereby it can make enough money to purchase mural decorations for our future auditorium. The first term's officers were: president, Genevieve Jones, vice-president, Rosalie Middletong secretary-treasurer, Helen Van Vleckg social chairman, Rider Myers. The second term's offcers were: president, Elizabeth Peachyg vice-presi- dent, and social chairman, Virginia Ostrom, secretary-treasurer, Marjorie Fletcher. 90 STRING LN 51iMBLr 0RC,HI,fT1kA- ART CLUB' The Officers Club Officers are we ln the grand R. O. T. C. "Good training tells," says Mister Wells. And a wise, wise man is he! The Officers' Club was organized a year ago under the supervision of Mr. 'Wells for the purpose of keeping up the morale of the R. O. T. C., and incidentally, to act as an additional incentive to cadets to work hard for promotion. The club has had several outings at the beaches and one at the mountains. The club invited the whole unit to a skating party. Al- though one of the newest in the school, the Officers club is unquestionably one of the most active. The first term's officers were president, Chester Williamsg vice-president, Hugh Matherlyg secretary-treasurer, Jack Pestell. The second term's officers were: president, james Conleyg vice-president, Hugh lVlatherlyg secretary-treasurer, Aldred Foster. T The Stage Crew We're the happy, snappy old Stage Crew, And strange are the jobs we dol We make the props and we work the drops, And the lights of varied hue, Like Jove of yore, we make thunder roar, While the actors play for you. The Stage Crew are the "men behind the guns." Without them there would be no productions possible. Their duties are to make props, scenery, and other necessary things. They handle the lights, curtains, change the scenery and in fact, do all the work that would be so terribly conspicuous if it were absent. This year, under Ray Witt and Oscar Quave, the follow- ing men made up the largest and best crew we've had: William Lepper, assistant manager, R. Stirling, electrician, Bob Jones, assistant electrician: Cecil Foster, property man: Harold Lepper, assistant property man, with Edward Rising, Eugene Cherry, Harold johnson, and William Kendig, as general workmen. Ushers The Franklin ushers know the ropes, Each number and each rowg They guide the crowds into the aisles, And show them where to go. At the beginning of the first term of the past year lVlr. Montgomery established the present system of ushering. Ushers became necessary when it was necessary to have reserved seats because of the crowds. The ushers, for the past year, have been most efficient under Mr. Mont- gomery and Joseph Handley, head usher, seating people very quickly and well. The roll call of the ushers is as follows: Joseph Handley, head usher: Arnold Therkelson, George Stevens, Jack Thompson, William Manns, George Nlanns, Max Levine, Simpson Singer, Robert Coyle, Cameron Coyle, and Herbert Gotfredson. 02 , olirltlllyu C f1A.c.11 uigiw- Vnuif Boys' Glee Club We'll trill you a song of old Uncle Moon, And croon a lullabyg We'll buzz like a bee and sing like a "coon"-- We boys of Franklin High! To provide entertainment for others and for the boys themselves is the purpose of Franklin's Boys' Glee Club. And it has undoubtedly accom- plished its purpose during the past year by singing at several aud calls. before the Greater Highland Park Association and by furnishing the principal entertainment at numerous programs. Of course, without the Boys' Glee, there could have been no opera. lVluch of its success is due to the constant efforts of lVlrs. Watson, the Boys' Glee Club director. The first term's officers were: president, james Conley: vice-president. George Staffg secretary, Donald Hook: librarian, Clarence Badgeleyg publicity manager, Charles Weesner. The second term's officers were: president, Donald Tylerg vice-president, George Staff, secretary, Delamere Baldwing librarian, james Conley, publicity manager, Charles Weesner. The Athladelphians Sturdy and strong are we, The cream ol Franklin High, We've done our best in ev'ry test. Our motto is, "We'll Try." The Athladelphians are Franklin's famous 'iletter-men", that is, they are the boys who have won a letter in one or more sports. They certainly showed their ability as capable managers and real workers when they made such a decided success of 'Boys' Night," which was held during the first term. The proceeds wen to increase the athletic fund which is used to pay for the treatment of all men who get hurt while participating in any sport. The first term's officers were: president, Lyle Baldrigeg vice-president, Albert Steing secretary-treasurer, George Fuscog press representative, Charles Weesner. The second term's officers were: president, George Fuscog vice-presi- dent, Gordon Newell: secretary-treasurer, Leo Sheeleyg press representative, Charles Weesner. Tennis Club We're a lively crew And we're healthy, too, Our hearts are light and gay! With our studies through And no work to do, We love to play and playl The Tennis Club was formed last September under the instigation of Charles Weesner. Its purposes are to provide means for the selection of the school tennis team and to insure co-operation between the players and the Student Body. The officers for first term were: president, Charles Weesnerg vice-presi- dent, Frank lVlcClearyg secretary-treasurer, lVlarlyn Ritziusg publicity chair- man, Louis Samsong club representative, Harold Hollister. The second term officers were the same as the first with the exception of publicity chairman who was Harold Hollister. 94 BOYj' GfLI1ll CI UP. K Z 'Lrg i is , .E .

Home Economics Club We're learing how to be Queens of the home, are we! You'll side-step strife if you choose a wife Who was taught home economy! Membership in the Home Economics Club is open to all girls interested in domestic science-and what girl shouldn't be? The past year has been one of stirring activity, with widespread benefit, under the efficient direction of Mrs. Anderson and Miss Campbell. A delightful party opened the second term's program. A liberal supply of table linen was contributed to the Home Economics department by the Club, and several pleasing social affairs were carried out by the members. The first term's officers were: president, Catherine Jacownsg vice-presi- dent, Bettie Smith, secretary, Katherine Delaney, social chairman, Mildred Kessler.

Lectures are given from time to time by men who have had practical exper- ience along these lines. The primary object of the club is to foster interest in agriculture, stock-raising and other kindred subjects. Frequently interesting trips are made to farms in the neighborhood.

" A better place than the history department of Franklin cannot be found in which to learn the answer to this question. 5 E There are seven hundred sixty students taking at least E 5 one of the social sciences which include all histories, civics, .-1: :: . . S-' 'Lf economics, and sociology. Formerly both history and civics were taken in the third riii'-5372 year, but at the present time, one whole year is given to American history and one half year to civics. Two new history teachers have been added to the department this year: Miss Coffin, who spends her afternoons teaching history, and her mornings with the Spanish classes, and Miss Kahley, who gives hcr entire time to Ameri- can history. ' Home Economics NY L3 A OSE. no time: be always employed in something useful." Only the girls who take cooking and sewing can realize the full value of the home economics course. J 9? The first year, under the direction of Miss Campbell, a course -3-' in simple mathematical problems is taken, also a course in cook- iiigwiglix ing in which the girls learn the value and necessity of proper HQ' food. The more advanced classes study interior decorating and other household matters from the buying of a lot to the furnish- ing of a home. The study of textiles, samples and prices is taken up in the first year of sewing under the direction of lVlrs. Anderson. The upper classes do millin- ery work and make dresses of different material and types. Library DLENESS is the Dead Sea that swallows all virtues," says Poor Richard, but at Franklin there is no need for any one to be idle. There is always the library where one can go to study or to read. Franklinites may well be proud of their library, for its -1- work room is the finest in Southern California, its dimensions and lighting are almost perfect and in every way it is considered a model library. The carpenters built everything under Miss Stevens' direction, even the work table which is her especial pride and the delight of every school librarian in the city. Locked cupboards are provided for the new books and the shelves are system- atized so that each book and magazine has its particular place. . '43 2- za :S Q 1 'QL I re' .

The French and Spanish departments have three addition- al teachers this year, Mr. Brothers, Mr. La Bastille, and Miss Coffin.

Classes in beginning Spanish have been divided so that the students receiving a grade of three are placed in a separate may receive the benefit of extra help. department now requires thirteen classes and three Abel teaches the tenth and eleventh year Latin while one of the ninth year classes.

A recognition of this accounts for the fact that each year not only are the required classes filled but the senior electives are overcrowded. 1 Grammar, composition and spelling are useful tools by which the student fto carry on the figurej may mine for the rewards in store for a well-directed industry. There are all together seventeen English teachers. Mrs. Barnum, Mrs. Hahn, Mrs. Kinkel, Mrs. Wise, Miss Lisherness, and Mr. Horton have been added to the department this year. Commercial Department SEFUL attainments in your minority will procure riches in ma- turity, of which writing and amounts are not the meanest." The main work of the commercial department is to pre- pare students for making a living in the business world. Many stenographers, book-keepers, salesmen and other commercial workers who received their training in Franklin have the repu- tation of being among the very best in the city. To train these workers instruction is given in penmanship, arithmetic, ele- ments of business, commercial geography, commercial law, shorthand, typewriting, book-keeping, office practice, commer- 44' I' x -'ll' E H. cial practice, salesmanship, business English, and advertising. Between thirty-five and forty percent of each year's entering class go into the commercial department, making it one of the largest departments in the school. 101 Agriculture PLOUGHIVIAN on his legs is higher than a gentleman on his knees." ik The attendance in the agricultural classes has increased X 1 considerably over last year. This may be attributed to the great T' 'T variety of subjects and to the interesting content of each sub- Mg ject. 'J in the study of general agriculture the student learns the " 5 scientific principles of the subject and applies them in raising L t 3 thrifty garden and field crops both at school and at home. " 5 The Agricultural Botany classes study the trees, shrubs, and plants of Southern California. The landscape gardening classes study the principles of the landscaping and the characteristics and landscape values of various trees and shrubs. Other subjects studied are farm management, horticulture, and animal husbandry. Cafeterla F you would have a faithful servant and one that you like, serve fa yourself." QQ The real work of the cafeteria is carried by a host of work- '-5 ers behind the lines under the direction of lVlrs. Kribbs. ,-Z Tlilkififf Two lunch periods have been established this year in order . W to take care of the increased number of Franklin students. This system has been in practice in other schools for a great many 5- years but this is the first year that it has been necessary at I ' Franklin. The cafeteria has a seating capacity of two hundred fifty and during both lunch periods it is well filled. There is an outside "hash line" for the boys, where they may procure food much more quickly and therefore avoid the rush of "the hungry." The Service Department OLERATE no uncleanliness in body, clothes or habitation." This K indeed, seems to be the motto of the members of the service de- partment by whose efforts Franklin has kept clean and beautiful X throughout the buildings and grounds. The department consists Q, of lVlr. Cowly, who is the head janitor, Mrs. Shigley, Mr. Spen- jifi' cer, the gardner, and Mr. Radford, the engineer. - The importance of this department cannot be overstated for in every rapidly growing community there is a tendency on gil . the part of many people to neglect the very necessary admoni- tion to keep the city clean, and nothing so prejudices visitors against a city as uncleanliness. The teaching of neatness and orderliness in and about the school premises, therefore, cannot be overestimated. 102 Science Department OR science is like virtueg its own exceeding great reward." The science department is finding it a diflicult task to keep pace with the growth of the student body. At present there are nine teachers working in six rooms with an overflow in the cafe- teria. The scope of the work has changed little except for the addition of the radio department. It is hoped that some day a complete radio station will be installed on the roof and that there 'Q' will also be more room for chemical and physical laboratories. Mr. Montgomery has been placed at the head of the science department this year. It is through his great interest in the work, and that of his associates that this department has become one of the most important of the school. Q Q. Printing Department HE art which is the conserver of all arts." The printing department is one of the smaller departments of the school but it is, however, one of the most active. The ,Q printing classes are very popular with the students, for there 'K Lp' they gain much experience, initiative and confidence in them- .elif selves. A Ninety six students are taking printing under the direction H of Mr. Haglund. - - - The department has used up nearly fifteen pounds of ink and has turned out from four to five hundred dollars worth of printing this term. lt is one of the most necessary of the school departments and the student body appreciates the work Mr. Haglund and his classes have done for the school. Mathematics r During the past year the mathematics department in Frank- lin has undergone several changes ln the method of handling the Q 1 work The two lower grares are divided into two groups. 0 One group is made up of those who take kindly to mathematics, 1 h and the other of those who do not take kindly to it, as Mr. Keyes expresses it. The larger group is made up of those who ai A receive either a one or two in their work. Groupings, as far ' L-ce' as the ninth grade are concerned, are based on the results of the intelligence test and the class work. The students having greater diffi- culty with mathematics are treated to a new course which has been devised to meet their needs. 7,7 w LOTH makes all things difficult, but industry, all things easy." y in n S .. . . H . 103 Manual Training EEP thy shop and thy shop will keep thee." No modern system of education would be complete with- X out manual training, for all effective education is based upon the idea of developing the student for a part in the worlcl's work. ln a growing community such as this, the necessity for trained eyes and hands is very apparent. The manual training department at Franklin is particularly well equipped and with the addition of new materials and tools I many more opportunities will be offered to the student. The work which the boys have clone in making the stage sets for the plays, cupboards, and book cases in the various classrooms, and booths for the May Festival all show how skillful the students have become. The credit for the interest shown and the effective work of the depart- ment is due to the careful instruction which the boys have received under the supervision of Mr. Bjurman and Mr. Sherinyan. Music Department That the popularity of the music course becomes greater every year may be clearly seen from the increasing number of students who enter the music classes. This term there are about 1- seven hundred fifty students and an additional teacher, Mr. 'K Bock, whose special work is violin and string ensemble and the N" L teaching of the extra classes in music appreciation. The solids , . V USIC is the universal language." ef it studied in the music course include sight singing, and the classes in harmony and music historyg chorus and music appreciation are among the subjects taken for extras. The boys' and girls' glee clubs, the orchestra, and the band compare fav- orably with the corresponding organizations of other high schools. The big musical event given by the girls' and boys' glee clubs this year was "Pirates of Penzance" which is another Gilbert and Sullivan opera. 104 v 105 s L s RESS ' NLESS it be the Maud" calls, or the spirit of our principal, there is. perhaps, no one influence that makes for loyalty, co-operation, tp' and progress so strongly as does the school paper. Behind the W paper to work for such high ends there must be a strong, fine e-:Jw personality. Such a personality Franklin is so fortunate to have 6. ' I in Miss Annette Glick, Press advisor. Quick in sympathy, broad 'Q N in her interests, untiring in effort, Miss Click has placed the Franklin paper on a par with the very best in the city. W5 The growth of the school in the six years since the first four-column Press was issued in February, l9l8, has been reflected as ac- curately as if measured with an instrument, by the steady increase in the size and subscription list of the Franklin Press. During the first term, under the editorship of Nellie Onstine, author of the famous Walt Mason, jr. rhymes, the Press became a factor of influence in school life. Working on the principle that the school newspaper should not only record the news but should initiate movements that would result in school betterment, the Press conducted the Creed Contest in January, which resulted in the formulation of the ideals of the school in a literary and enduring form. The second term the Yell Contest was held under the supervision of Max Levine and Art Wilson, yell leaders, resulting in the addition of a number of new and effective yells to the school's repertory. From the school activi- ties fund, established as a result of the showing of the "Mark of Zorro" at the York Theatre, the Press was able, through its staff artist, junior Good, to design and construct the windshield posters which have already done much Io make the school known throughout the city. From this fund also, the Bjurman sculpture exhibit was held in April, and the Football Statue acquired which will long typify the principles of hard and fair play to the Franklin football warriors. At the beginning of the second semester, Doris Gattwinkel was elected Editor-in-Chief, and an active subscription campaign was inaugurated, the principal feature of which was the race between the boys and the girls for the highest number of one-hundred per cent class rooms. The results as they were entered on two large painted thermometers in the main hall, raised en- thusiasm to such a pitch that the Press at the close of the campaign recorded the largest subscription list in proportion to the size of the Student Body in the City League group. The paper carried on the tradition of the Josh Edition inaugurated by Mrs. Church, and published in November from "Kachoo, Kansas, April 36, l823" an issue which has proved, through the large number of imitators in other schools, to be a classic in its line. The special holiday Christmas and 106 Thanksgiving editions were particularly in the spirit of the season, and the Debating, Education Week, and Citizenship Credit numbers, resulted in much popular attention paid to the more solid things in Franklin's yearly march of events. The special eight page Senior number with its orange and grey "W'24" on the cover proved a bell-ringer, and the demand for extra issues of the paper for mailing to admiring friends and relatives back East, and up North, and down South, far exceeded the supply. The Shakespeare Edition in the spring term set a new tradition for special numbers, and with the Debating, Josh Edition, and Senior Number will be welcomed in the future as an annual event. At least one large city newspaper outside the school looks to Franklin with particular interest and even a share of appreciation and thanks and that is the Los Angeles Evening Herald whose school page was first conceived and planned by the members of the Journalism l class and sponsored by the Press the following term. As a result of the idea of Estelle Gilman, a mem- ber of the class, Miss Helen Roberts of the Evening Herald's editorial staff, requested the formal recognition from her paper of the fifty thousand high school pupils of the city. Accordingly, a special page of weekly news de- voted exclusively to their activities and interests was introduced, and few new features in the field of Los Angeles Journalism have resulted in more immediate success. Through the attractive make-up and the prominent posi- tion given the page in the paper, the School Page has a large number of readers among persons in the city who have no children attending school and who are thus made aware for the first time of the varied activities and achieve- ments of the eight major high schools of the city. The School Page is doing much to familiarize the public with the work of the schools, but it is perform- ing an even greater service by giving the student bodies of the various high schools a common and friendlyhmeeting ground, a thing which is not always supplied in the rivalry and competition of the athletic field. As School Page Editor the first term, Harold Lurie broke the ground, while Eugene Harvey the second term, established a reputation in the down- town oflices of the Herald that few more experienced reporters secure. Special attention paid to debating, attractive make-up in advertising, and the use of a large number of expensive front-page cuts secured without charge from down-town newspapers, were other features appreciated by the student body. Those serving both terms who contributed materially to the success of the Press, were Herbert Gotfredson, Business Manager, William Manns, Ad- vertising Manager, and Junior Good, cartoonist. Fred Fassett, Assistant Editor the second term, also was primarily responsible for many successful issues of the Press. The services of Herbert Cotfredson in the fall term in -per- forming the labor of printing foreman and general manager, in addition to his regular duties as Business Manager, can never be fully estimated: they represent a record of real service to the school that is seldom equaled. Others to whom thanks are due are Mr. Moore, ready friend and counselor, Mr. Bullock whose smile and helpfulness were a constant encouragement, Mrs. Church for whom the staff would travel to the ends of the earth, and first and always to Mr. Sawyer, whose earnest efforts and sound business judgment are responsible for the paper in its present form. 107 Interscholastic Debating ITH four victories and ten decisions to her favor Franklin cul- +- minated a most successful debating season. The season of l923-l924 brought the greatest, and most brilliant debating :W year Franklin l-ligh School has ever experienced. Winning four tak out of six debates and ten out of eighteen decisions, thus plac- H- ' ing herself second in the City Debating League, Franklin proved X - her worth in the field of debating and is now able to hold her head high among exponents of the argumentative science. .A good part of Franklin's victories should be attributed to Mr. Horton, the new debating coach, who has returned to Franklin after an absence of two years. He inagurated the squad system of debating and mar- shaled the interscholastic debaters to a series of victories, winning hirzzself the enthusiastic support of the followers of debating. There were three series of debates held this year. The first question to be debated upon was: Resolved, "That the Philippine Islands should be granted their independence by the Present Congress." Our Affirmative team met Hollywood and defeated them by a 2 to l decision. The Negative team journeyed to the University High School and was defeated 3 to 0. The second question selected for debate was: Resolved, "That a three- fourths vote of a jury should constitute a verdict in all criminal cases." Frank- lin's affirmative team met Los Angeles High School on our home grounds and lost by a vote of 2 to l. l-lowever, our negative team at Manual brought home 2 decisions to Manual's l. The last series of debates was valiantly contested over the question: Resolved, 'That the Monroe Doctrine should be abandoned." Interest among first time in her history Franklin had cup to her own trophy case. The were out to win six decisions from met in two debates. The members the Printer debaters waxed hot as for the a fighting chance to bring the debating Wranglers who debated on this question our ancient rival Manual Arts, whom we of the two teams spent long hours and weary nights preparing for the debates which were to close the season, and were rewarded by defeating the Toilers on our platform 2 to l and gaining another victory on their grounds to thie tune of 3 to 0. ln this last series the Patriots gained five decisions tying with Hollywood and the University High School for second place. This year Franklin was extremely fortunate in having four eloquent and experienced debaters to acquire new laurels for her in the field of debating. Josephine Peairs, who has participated in two debates, and her capable partner Murray Hertenstein, a one star debater and an eloquent speaker achieved fame for themselves in the second series of debates. George Manns, a tvgo star debater, has participated in three debates and is becoming famous for his stinging rebuttals. Dewey Thomas, his able colleague, showed a decided talent for debating. We shall hear more from him next year. William Manns, a two star debater and a veteran of four interscholastic debates has made his name through his ability to forcefully deliver convincing arguments. Glenna Gould, although a newcomer in Franklin debating, won herself a place on two teams and showed decided ability. Uriel Cerecht and Ada Fisher, his capable partner, showed themselves able and willing workers and displayed a spirit of teamwork. Leona McKinney, a' star of interclass debates, showed that she was a debater able to present her arguments clearly and con- vincingly. Next year with eight of these debaters back the Kitefliers will cer- tainly capture the debating trophy to grace Franklin's halls. 108 I 1 upmu 3 fQDA URILL ILIIQLCHT. 5.

C. has played an important part in the life of the school, but only in the past year has it so thoroughly grasped the citizenship of the school that it may truly take its place with athletics, drama- tics and debating, as a leader in school interest. ln every way the unit under the direction of lVlr. Wells became a much-improved machine. The enrollment swelled to pleasing proportions, the organization became more complete and the discipline was changed to a new and constructive variety. The enrollment allowed for two complete companies and the band, which is a remarkable showing for a school the .size of Franklin. Many creditable performances and enviable records were made by the unit. On inspection, on guard duty, and in different parades onlookers were astonished at the general uniformity. The school may look forward to a very successful year under Mr. Wells next September. The band, long standing as the school's pride, gave many fine exhibi- tions and is generally considered to be the best high school band in Southern California. It took second place in both drilling and music at the compe- tition held in the Coliseum, in which bands from all over Southern Cali- fornia were entered. I RO A me 110 COMPANY A. IIIIZ. BAND ill!!

Oct. 30: We were going to have a "rip-snortern test in geometry today and l intended to ditch. I would have too, if it had have been last year, but this Honor System makes things seem different. Why it even makes a fellow want to do the right thing! !'m sure glad l didn't ditch too, 'cause the teacher was called out and we didn't have the test at all. Nov. 8: Saw the "King Lear" film today. Funniest thing !'ve seen in a long time even if it wasn't supposed to be. The Senior B's went galavanting off tonight, boys entertaining the girls at Rooster, I mean Brookside Park. lf all their plans panned out they must have had a whoppin' good time. Sis' ought to be comin' home pretty soon. Nov. l l : Old Bill was over tonight and was telling me what a bully time the Masquers had at Switzers. They started Saturday morning, stayed all night and just got back. Now I suppose when all the kids hear about the fun they had everybody will want to be a Nlasquer. Nov. 23: "Visiting Night" at school for the "parents" tonight and I never had more fun in my life. We sure pulled a good one over on the faculty that time--we three fellows in our grandmothers' togs, rubbing elbows with the paws and maws. Ha! Ha! 114 Nov. 27: Went to see the "Shirt" and "Trysting Placei' tonightg and that "Shirt" was ridiculously true to life, just like a bunch of women wrangling over noth- ing. Believe me, if I ever get married, I'm going to hang on to my shirt. "The Trysting Place" was mighty good too, and if you didn't know anything about love before you went you ought to know now. Dec. I3: Well, it was "Boys' Night" tonight-games and a big feed and every- thing. Had a bonfire too, but best of all Harry Rimmer and Coach Daugherty were there. Dec. I4: They gave "What Men Live by" tonight and there's no doubt about it, it was a hum-dinger. There was something to it, too,-made a fellow think. And you wouldnit believe that high school people could play a sort of spiritual thing like that: but they did and put it over, too. Dec. !5: I Our Xmas vacation starts today so it will be goodbye to Franklin for a couple of weeks. jan. ! ! : "They came, we saw and we conquered." Thats what Franklin usually does to Hollywood and it was great today at aud when they got the little end of the horn in the debate. I wou!dn't be afraid to bet that it was that "second childhood" remark that won it for Franklin, either. jan. IS. Guess all the Seniors went stepping out in their glad rags tonight. The Senior B's are entertaining the Senior A's. It certainly ought to be a scrum- dumptuous affair: the Senior B's have been working hard enough, goodness knows! Why Sis' has been working on that thing for weeks but I suppose she's enjoying herself now. She ought to bc, amongst all those keen decora- tions. When I stuck my head in the gym tonight about 7 o'c!ock, it didn't look like a gym at all with those butterflies and a fountain and everything. jan. 25: Went yesterday night and tonight and I wish I hadn't missed the after- noon performance. Great? Oh! Boy, I never saw a grander play than "A Successful Calamity. " I wouldn't be surprised if half the cast didn't go on the stage some day and become such bright and shining stars that the light they shed would give everybody who saw them "Kleig" eyes. jan. 3! : Wonder if I'll ever get a chance to do the "Turkey Walk" to the tune of "Lest We Forget" like those Seniors did tonight-Whew! the music thrills you! Well, I'm going to try anyway. I'!! kid the teachers along and do a little studying now: Geometry, maybe. ilfeb. ! : We had "letter" aud today. Some got Iettersg some Tetralpha pins. And Pau! Spencer, on behalf of the Senior A's or rather Alumni now, presented lV!r. Moore with a ring in honor of his winning Creed. We have heard the Creed read. and were all given copies of it: I think it's mighty fine and really expressive of the Franklin Spirit! 115 Feb. 8: Today we had one of the best aud calls we've had in a longtime. Dr. Spaeth was there and played on the Knabe. He played all sorts of things and showed how certain tunes are used over and over again. Last of all he played and sang "Jack and jill"-with variations, mostly variations. That was a kickl Tonight the Band gave their Annual Concert. We fellows up there on the stage got to laughing once or twice: but l guess, taken on the whole, it was all right. People said so any way. Feb. 22: Today was "Alumni Day" and just gobs and gobs of Alumni were back. Lots of them I didnit know. l saw the Almanac staff rushing madly about get- ting snap-shots. The upper grade students and the Alumni had a sort of George Washington assembly and were reminded of the good old times. Bet it did seem good to be back! And they say it is going to be an Annual event. lf it is, maybe I'll get a whack at it some day. March 7: The Orpheus Quartet was at aud today and sang quite a number of selections. We didn't go to sleep either, you can bet. l sat away in the back: but l don't believe l ever heard the gym so quiet as when one of them sang, "Mighty Lak' a Rose." March 27: Franklin's getting real high-falutin' and had a show all its own this after- noon. lt was "The Mark of Zorro" and was shown at the York Theater. The proceeds went to buy several things we need around the school such as the football statue, "Conquest" Nlarch l 5 : Tetralpha's had an aud call with lots of features, today. Mr. Oxnam was there and spoke on "World Problems." Mr. Bock sang and a policeman spoke on "Safety." Quite a varietyl April 4: Well, welll Daisy Jean has come and gone. She was just as good as ever, too. She sang, played the harp, cello and piano, just as she did a year ago. Why, she's getting to be quite a friend of the family and was presented with a Franklin ring. Sis' got home sort of late again this evening. She went with Nellie On- stme and some other girls ,to a tea at Bullock's. I guess all the Girls' League Presidents were there. Nellie presided and Sis said she did just fine and that everybody was proud of her. April 7: ' Monday again! But never mind. just a few months more! Well, l'lI bet those Freshmen girls surprised the Seniors, when the party the Scrubs gave turned out so well. Sis' admitted that those freshmen have a lot of pep and said that the party was "real" nice, good program, refreshments and every- thing. , April I I : "lt never rains but it pours." We had another good aud call. This time the Masquers were responsible for it. Miss Mary Agnes Doyle was here. She seems to be an old friend, too, and they say she's been here several times before. This time she read "Peg O' My Heart" and she really is wonderful. The Masquers were quite privileged characters and sat in the front section. 116 Later, l guess they got quite well acquainted at the luncheon they gave for her. They sported their colors in little black and white bows. April 24: Saw "Twelfth Night" this afternoon and it's a perfect dream! l haven't seen so very many Shakespeare plays but if this is an example l won't miss any. l suppose Sis' will want to go to Stanford now. The Dean was down and talked to the Senior girls third period today. April 30: Can you beat it? Another tea. Seems to be all those Seniors girls do. This time it was a tea for the Mothers to discuss graduation dresses. l don't know what they finally decided although that's all l've heard since Ma and Sis' came home. I wonder if the boys make half as much fuss about their pants? May 1. Jiminy Crickets! We boys had to march all over town today. while the girls were having a good time entertaining themselves with a Hi Jinx or something. Guess it was something like the May Festival they used to have a long time ago when I was in grammar school. Had a nice program all for theirselves and then opened up the booths when the boys came back. lVlust have made a lot of money anyway. The proceeds are to go for the ben- efit of the "Business Girls' Home." May 3. Oh! goodness. l never saw so many things happen at once. Yesterday we won the Roosevelt baseball game. Last night Don won the first round of the Constitutional Contest. Wheel it was just like a football game! And then today Gordon Newell placed in the City Track meet. Beryl Alder- son won first place in some sort of transcription contest too. Oh! you Frank- lin! May 10. Saturday again! And Franklin's still on top! Our band got second place in the Southern California Band Contest this afternoon. Gordon Newell won third place in the mile run at the State Track meet today. And naturally Don won the second Constitutioal Contest. l suppose he'll go to Washington. Hope so anyway. Wouldn't it be great to have a Franklin High School boy speaking in the Senate Chamber? May 16. Sure missed something last night! The dramatics class gave a couple of one-act plays, "68-70 Berkeley Place" and "Anisya." If l had had the price of ticket l'd have gone, but there's been so many things l was just flat broke that's all. Today everybody was raving about how good they were though. Guess I'll make it my business not to miss the next two. June 13. Summer '24l Guess Franklin won't forget that class very soon. Not with all those football heroes, orators, poets, band boys, etc. They had their class day today, with their regular "Senior A" aud cal! and it was pippin! They didn't pass on that second hand dumbell either. June 27. l always knew that the S '24 class was different and a lot smarter than any other and when they graduated last night they didn't clo the regular "Turkey Walk" but left out part of it. Of course, some people said it wasn't quite as dignified but then they're only Senior A's. Today we had the last aud call of the year. And "l ain't a goin' study no more, no more. 117 N The Art Contest Fame and more fame to Franklin. This time it was a member of the art department who brought honor to our Alma Mater. Marjorie Fletcher, a member of the Junior Class has the distinction of having drawn the official poster for the Fourteenth National Orange Show. The Orange Show, an annual event, was held at San Bernardino from Febru- ary I5-24 and brought thousands of people to Southern California. Mar- jorie's poster, which was displayed in all the down-town stores and used in a country-wide publicity campaign, was chosen out of three hun- dred entries from Southern California schools. For this famous poster which did so much to call attention to the Orange Show, Marjorie was awarded the first prize of twenty-five dollars. ln the poster contest, not only was first place awarded to a Franklin high school student but also sixth place which was won by Elizabeth Peachy. Considering the number of entries, Franklin would have been proud to have won only one prize. These unexpected honors which brought Franklin once more into the limelight proves that Franklin is making progress and is attaining a fine degree of efficiency in all her departments. This is a demonstration of the fine training received in our art department, which ranks well with those of the older schools of the city. The students taking this course are getting a thorough foundation which will be extremely valuable to them should they enter more extensive fields of art. The efficiency and thoroughness of our art department reflects upon the rare ability of Miss jones who has been an instructor in the art department of Franklin for several years.

Gash iYllLL IJIADL - Yell Leaders A school's yell leaders have among the most difficult tasks of any of the school leaders. It is the duty of the megaphone artists to make the school present a pleasing appearance when in public, to see that true Franklin sports- manship is upheld, to fire a discouraged crowd and to help the team on the field. This is, as one must admit, a very broad field of action, in fact it requires an extremely versatile man to fill the position to its capacity. Franklin is proud to be able to say that the institution was fortunate in having three men of the exact caliber required. ln fact it is difficult to imagine three more able men to successfully accomplish the difficult part than Edwin Davis and Arthur Wilson the first term and Arthur Wilson and Max Levine the second term. These men deserve a hearty "thank you" from the entire student body. i J' , '. '.,: .4 , 124 25' 11 H l fl ll l QS u 1 W' I + I-'Eg 4 , ' : lf xi 1 rg ii in Football P, During the many years that Franklin has participated in every kiridiof engagement and encounter, many kinds of pennants and other trophies have been accumulated, but for the first time in many years in the history of foot- ball a new and altogether novel championship fell from nowhere and is now sitting in the trophy case where one may locate it if the right combination is used. For, as usual, the boys were satisfied with nothing less than a cham- pionship even though it had to be shared by Jefferson. This unexpected honor was the cellar championship. However in the high-powered city league it means little less than nothing suddenly to discover the bottom of the league in local handsg a team may be good and still have .000 for a percentage. As an example glance at the buff and blue pigshide weilders in the Poly argument. Poly was considered to have a much better team than Franklin: in fact, one of the best in the league, but such a large percentage of faint-heartedness among a student body was never known as during the friendly fracas at the Washington Park green. It must be said in defense of the boys that the past season was the first letter year for all but captain and half George Fusco and tackle "Shakespeare" Tyler. The gang started on the wrong foot in the first league game when they let the famous Janeki-Pabst corporation sneak over two touch downs, neither of which were converted. An old saying says a gentleman never takes the first gameg maybe that had something to do with it. The next game, the only one played on the home pasture, furnished crowds from both schools with many forms of thrills. Lincoln managed a thirteen to seven defeat for the homebrews, but only after the entire Lincoln population had uprooted their hair and the Lincoln coach had out of despera- tion almost put himself into the gameg for the last quarter saw Jack Schweizer, engineer on touchdowns, gather his men together and get well-headed for another before the whistle. The third and most disastrous game, found the aggregation among the Kleig lights of Hollywood. The buff and blue engavers couldn't get used to the movie air and the final announcement read I5 to 0. 126 The last game, with Poly, was, before the game, conceded to the alley felines without a struggle, 'but market reports show a twenty-one to four- teen score. Twice on other occasions the Thunder-brewers from Highland Park had the ball within the Washington Streeter's ten yard line, but failed to score. A lot of the team's snap was ironed out when quarterback jack Schweizer, who had been sifting around ends for from ten to fifteen yards consistently, was taken from the games after he had been injured in the second period. On the whole the boys under the leadership of lVlr. Tennison, Lyle Bald- ridge, and Allan Walker were fashioned into a very satisfactory team. With most of the bunch back next year we here and now broadcast a warning to all other contenders for city championship honors. Displayers of the "F" Ends ROY HUGHES: Roy is always steady and reliable, nothing flashy but always there in a pinch. "Whitey" is our next year's captain. This was Roy's first year. HOWARD KAIVIMELOHR: Howard is new at the game but one would never guess it from his consistent, heady playing. Howard will be with us next year. Tackles DONALD "Constitutional" TYLER: "Old lronsidesn needs no introduction to most of us. He has proved his worth by the stubborn defense and flashy offence he displays to opponents. Don is a three year man and will not be with us next year. HARTMANN ANGST: A valuable man on any team is Hartmann. He is the sort that always carries his part of each play to perfection. We will miss Hartmann next year. DELAIVIERE BALDWIN: Del, after making himself a name while playing with the lightweights, gained another envious reputation as a heavy. "Duke" is very spectacular at times. Sad to relate he won't be with us next year. ROGER KERNS: "Bubbles" is built along lines that make him hard to budge even if the necessary gain be an inch. Roger will be one of our losses next season. RICHARD STEVENS: "Lad" is another man that is hard to beat although this is his first year. He holds down the position with high style. Dick also returns to help us next year. Centers GORDON NEVVELL: Gordon is an accurate and fast man. He is especially dangerous on the defense. Gordon is another upon whom we base our dangerous on the defense. Cordon is another whom we lose next season. PAUL SPENCER: "Deacon" is a shifty player and a sure tackler, in fact he is an all-around dangerous man. No, Paul won't be with us again. Quarterbacks JACK SCHWEIZER: ,lack was probably the team's best bet. He was a daring open field runner, a good line bucker and a sure tackler on the de- fense. Some named him for the all-city position. No, neither will jack grace us with his presence again: his brain work will be missed. Jack was first string punter and passer, too. WILLIAM LAIRD: Billy proved conclusively that weight means nothing when it comes to football for he was a good runner and bucker as well as a heady field general. We place our quarterback hopes in Billy next year. 127 Halfbacks STARK FOX: Stark proved to be the surprise of the year. His kicking and passing was way above par. Stark holds the punt record of the school, having booted the ball eighty-five yards in the L. A. game by a freak kick. We lose Stark, too. DON NICHOLS: Don came to us from a military academy and proved his worth as a plunger, kicker and sure tackler. Don's gone for good, too. RAY STROHMEYER: Ray, although a small man, became a regular through his dandy defensive play and his line plunging. Ray checked out for the last time. DARREL MAYES: Darrel was another new arrival at the school but he stepped into the lineup as a regular through his own efforts. He was es- pecially good as a defensive player. Darrel won't return. Fullback GEORGE FUSCO: George, l923 Captain, was a most capable man in all departments of the game. Plunging through the line, off tackle bucks, and running all looked alike to him. We also mourn the loss of George. Russell Hughes and joe Milliken as managers proved themselves as capable as any Franklin has heretofore had. Materials were always ready and practise games were frequent. Coach Tennison will agree with the rest that the boys certainly deserve any praise they get. ' u -of Lightweight Football l923 found one of the best balanced lightweight aggregations yet exper- ienced by the Printer institution. Many old hands from the former year's bunch returned to don the padded suits. However the little fellows fared no better than their elder brothers and failed to break into the winning column. Nevertheless, the pocket editions kept up that noble spirit of "never say die" that is known to all the city as the "Franklin Spirit." Westlake-C. Wilson-H.B. Hitch-Q. Carter-H.B. Longnecker-T. Pestell-E. Lobbershimer-G. Laws-T. Ward-E. Hepburn-F.B. Hines-E. Goodwin-HB. 128 ' .575 X i ' it RE 'il 'Xf'X.fX.f iii X At the close of the basketball season inmates of the Kitefiyer school were positive that the jinx that dropped from a clear sky during last baseball season still persistently clung to the athletes displaying their wares under the buff and blue, for in spite of an infinite amount of spirit and fight the gang failed to gather a single league game since last basketball season. Even though the bunch failed to produce a win during the basketball season, many close scores were made and every team encountered had a vague feeling that they had hit something which might comfortably have had much less substance to it. At the very start the team was handicapped by the fact that every single letterman of the team that finished second last season was gone with the ex- ception of Zony Stein: and even he was lost in February. The bunch as a whole, though light, were a gang of scrappers, never downhearted and Fight- ing till the last whistle. 129 Personals Forwards ALBERT STEIN: Captain Zony was the only veteran left this year but his example was all that could be asked. His shooting was accurate and his Hoor work was swift and sure. We were sorry to lose Zony in February. RUSSELL MASON: Russell proved to be one of the best forwards of the bunch, his work at all times being commendable. Russell will play next year. CLAY LONG: Clay was one of the sure shots. His ability to pick a hole in the opponent's defense meant many baskets for the home guards. This is Clay's last year. PRESTON HOFFMAN: "Pep" although a small man was at all times clan- gerous and full of fight. He will be a great help to the team next season. Center MORRIS GUl..STlNE: Coming from a strange school Morris stepped right in and proved his worth by consistently out jumping his man and thereby getting the home team's plays in action. We lose his assistance next year. Morris was elected captain after Captain Stein left in February. He graduates in June. Guards STARK FOX: Stark was one of those fellows you can't get around, even if it means life and death. The team will miss Stark when the roll is called again. ALFRED RIENHART: "Tick" made one of the best guards seen on local lots. He broke up enough plays to make the opposite team exceedingly disgusted. ROY HUGHES: "Whitey" was a steady, consistent man, always on the job, rarely sucked in and never entirely out of the play. F. H. S ......... I8 Los Angeles ........ 30 F. H. S .........

I5 1.30 I i 1 f The fate which was meted out to the heavyweights also befell the lightweight casaba tossers, for although many close scores were made, the youths failed to puncture the win side of the column once. After five hard fought pumpkin games some of the tribe were heard to say, "When will the sun shine again?" With a host of material back next year many opposing teams should have sun stroke. The first cloud appeared upon the horizon after L. A. barely nosecl out the Printer lads to a resounding thud of 30 to IS. After the second game the sky was thoroughly overcast for Hollywood won by a Whisker, the score being I9 to IS. The rain began to fall after Lincoln managed a 29 to I2 count. A rumble of thunder in the distance and the flock dropped the next encounter I7 to ll to Poly. U U 1 ' The storm broke in all its fury, the sun completely blotted out and Roosevelt ran up a I7 to 4 score before the last whistle died. The class "C" team claims to have something on its larger brothers as the atom-weights won one out of its four league battles very decisively. - Hollywood was the .opposing sufferer! Big things can be expected of the babes next season. 131 fllll' Ln. wwnnmsmwnmmxi I fa, 1, ,.o:,:t1'fi1:ta F W l'llll"?lhz..El l1l1xxxxw pl wllktgl .millrmumuul ulrlisll 4 nun: Hun I 4 11 r'QN-fvgg-1 fi ?m':i..- . m..- -:..-: I F ff, ll .1 a ggi ln the history of the Printer institution track has, previous to the past season, played a very small part in athletics. But under the leadership of Mr. Tennison a much improved unit was fashioned from the quantity of new material. A much more balanced team was evident all through the past seasong and, although the principle strength lay in the distance, weights and hurdles, points were invariably gathered in the pole vault and broad jump. The first meet of the season found the home brews in an argument with the newest member of the league, Roosevelt. All advance dope concerning the locals was upheld when the team, through many good performances, milled out a 73 to 40 score against the Teddies. Argue copped first place in the pole vault, Kerns the discus, McCleary the half mile, Colloran the high jump. Eddie gathered the shot, Newell ran away with the mile and Kammerlohr breezed in first in the 440. Sheeley romped away with the hurdles and Cant jumped in to first place in the broad jump. On the whole the meet was very satisfactory. ln the next meet Jefferson proved a trifle too strong. However, Newell in the mile, lVlcCleary in the half, Sheely in the hurdles, Argue in the vault. Long in the high jump and Kerns in the discus, did their share to uphold local honors. L. A. High, the next opponent, also finished with the edge on the home performers, the tune being 85 to 29. Newell, lVlcCleary, Sheeley, Argue and Kerns, showed up with their accustomed eclat in their favorite events. The team next entertained the Lincoln B. V. D. artists. Log Cabiners were considered one of the strongest teams in the league: the outcome was at no time in doubt but many of the scantily clad lads from the Lightning Chaser school made commendable performances. Newell, lVlcCleary, Sheeley, Eddie and Kerns gathered most of the points for the local institution. The next obstacle was Manual, league champs, who succeeded in gather- ing 91 points to the Printers 22. Eddie lVlcCleary, Newell and Kerns, under buff and blue colors, showed to advantage. The closing meet of the track season found Poly and Franklin together for a cinder path debate. Much to the dismay of the runners from both schools another distinct meet was taking place which hindered and good com- petition or time. To cap the climax the hurdle races were omitted because of lack of sticks. Sheeley would certainly have won the hurdle races had they been held as his only opponent Bly, of Poly was sick. After the final count was formulated the total readg Poly 55 l-2, F. H.S. 39 l-2. lVlcCleary, Newell, Argue, Kerns and Eddie again starred. The season as a whole, as may be seen, produced more real performers than have ever graced the Benjamin school before. With a lot of the material back an excellent team may be expected next year. 132 Personals GORDON NEWELL: Gordon was without doubt the team's best bet. His event is the mile, time, 4.50. Gordon also proved his versatility by an occasional second in the half mile and a first place in the city cross country run. Gordon finished second to the famous Hansen of Manual Arts in the city meet and placed fourth in the Southern California finals. C-ordon's brilliant achievements were topped by a third place in the state meet and a fourth place in the A. A. U. open track meet. In the last event "Gordy" was the only high school man to place. ROGER KERNS: "Bubbles" showed well in the discus, being beaten only once in the dual meets. Roger took the other three points for Franklin in the City meet by nabbing second place in heaving the plate. Mr. Kerns also puts the shot a considerable distance. FRANK MCCLEARY: Frank's race was the half mile, he being beaten only once in the dual meets. ln the city meet he was boxed and failed to place. He is the best S80 man the school has ever had. CHARLES EDDIE: Shot putter de luxe. "Chuck" heaves the marble well over forty feet. He has another year of competition-watch his smoke! l WILLIAM ARGUE.:-Bill's ticket read pole vault and broad jump, he having garnered many points in both. He is brother to Argue of Oxy, his brother better look to his laurels. LEO SHEELEY: Captain Leo is a wiz at the high and low barriers and holds the school record in both. ln the city perliminaries he was stepping right along when he threw a shoe. Hard luck to F. H. S., for he was a certain point getter. 133 The Franklin nagskin pill artists of I924 were blessed by a host of new material ably coached by a new man, Mr. jellison. Building the team around Argue, Palm, Laird and Berry from last year an exceedingly well rounded team was put upon the field, holding victories over many of the out of town schools and even trimming the highly touted Jefferson bunch by a 9 to 2 score. Long and Argue always got their share of hits while the fielding of Bock, Berry and Laird rounded out the field nicely. The pitching end of the battery was held by Palm and Lee while Gulstine performed capably on the receiving end. At the time of writing the Kitefliers hold an l l-2 victory over Roosevelt and a l-7 and I-9 defeat at the hands of L. A. and Poly. It may be predicted that a warm time is in store for all future opponents. 1224 - g . .. ., . . M M S ...g ...marins sw Tl-II 'IINNI 'IEAM' A as At Franklin, tennis achievements for the past term have been brighter than ever before. Since the time when a Central League tennis pennant was won in this sport there has been a dearth of tennis material, but the personnel of the last season's team has had two years of experience, finishing fourth in the City League last year. ln the final round of the school tournament Charles Weesner, last year's second man, defeated Frank lVlcCleary, former first man by a 6-l 3 6-I 3 l-6: 6-2 score. With this victory went first place on the team. Jack de Lara won second place challenging: Frank Mccleary took third and Donald Bent fourth place. The first round league match was the Roosevelt, which resulted in a I7-0 win for the local team. In addition to the regular line-up, Larry Parsons, Newton Kelman and Bud Roland played matches. L. A. High was the second match opponent. Franklin net artists retained their first place in the percentage column by administering a I 7 to 0 trouncing. As Los Angeles High was conceded to possess one of the best teams in the League, this victory left but Hollywood and Franklin undefeated. This tie was played off the following week and resulted in a victory for Franklin by a I3 to 4 score. With this win goes a pennant. the second for the school. The Kiteflyers terminated a successful season by winning from both Lincoln and Manual Arts. 135 Letter Men YELL LEADERS: Davis, Wilson, Levine' Football FUSCO NEWELL SHEELEY TYLER HUGHES, ROY KAMMERLOHR GREGG STROHMEYER SPENCER Baseball WATSON LONG, R HITCH, S, HECK GULSTINE Basketball GULSTINE HOFFMAN LONG, C Track EDDY KERNS ARGUE SHEELEY Tennis WEESNER WHITE McCLEARY RITZIUS Managers HUGHES, RUSSELL SPAFF ARD WILLIAMS WESTLAKE 136 LAIRD STEVEN SCHWEIZER KERNS ANGST MAYES NICHOLS FOX PALM BERRY ARGUE LAIRD BOCK HUGHES, ROY STEIN FOX COLLORAN KAMMERLOHR McCLEARY NEWELL De LARA KELMAN BENT PARSONS MORGAN ANGST HOLLISTER -W.

Darrel Morgan, Printer first man, deserves special mention for his work in the fifty yard back stroke. l-le never failed to gain first in dual meets and he took second only to the Southland's best in the Southern California meet. 137 The Coaches It was a matter of much speculation as to who would take the place of Mr. Daugherty after he left last year. But all questions were silenced after it was announced that Mr. Sam. A. Tennison would become chief physical training instructor and head coach of the school. As an individual Mr. Tennison has an enviable record in football, basketball, and track. The school is indeed fortunate in having a man of lVlr. Tennison's caliber. It is no easy task to step into a new school and take direct charge of the coaching as the men, school and traditions are all strange, but in spite of this fact our coach soon got his work running smoothly. As lVlr. Tennison says, "The premium is on victory." With this in View all his squads gave their best. Our second coach is Mr. jellison, of baseball fame. He fashioned a finished product from the host of material which gave plenty of grief to opposing teams. We may expect much in the future from teams under Mr. Jellison's coaching. Mr. lVlcCollom, the only man on the coaching staff who is not new, as- sisted notably with the track team and formed and coached a dangerous golf and swimming team. K - Q 53 .
