The relay race is the crowning event of a track meet. 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
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

OODROW Wilson, addressing a group of college students, said:

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.

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!"
"The most substantial glory of a nation is in its virtuous
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.

History of Graduating Class, Winter 192-l
Away back in the years past many, many, long, years ago ffour to be
exactb there happened at Franklin High School a thing which has never been
nor ever will be equaled in the life of any high school in the country.
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,
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
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
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
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.

DISEASES OF CARS
CURED BY INVENTOR
Paul Spencer, famous
scientist and inventor, has
just patented his new de-
tachable radiator cap de-
signed to prevent the cough-
ing and sneezing of any
make of car during an influ-
enza epidemic. The caps are
artistic affairs, manufactur-
ed in pastel or more sombre
shades. Mr. Spencer's new
265,000.00 car, "T, B," now
on display at the Interna-
tional Auto Show is equip-
ped with one of the new in-
ventions. The caps, con-
structed of corn cobs, are
very reasonable in cost.
David Lee, the greatest

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-

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.
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.

Last Will and Testament
l went to Lawyers Smith and Jones and said, "l'll give you twenty bones
to show me how to make a will that can't be broke-so use your skill and
tell me what l ought to write to make it legal, sound and tight." They both
looked wise, each scratched his head, and here's the gist of what they said:
"First list up all the junk you've got, no matter whether good or not,
then wish it onto some poor guy who can't refuse before you die. Of course
the will must not be read-remember this-before you're dead." fWell
knowing Summer Twenty-four, l thought, 'No trouble on that scorefj Now
here's the will, prepared with carey all legatees are mentioned there:
WHEREAS Old Summer Twenty-four will soon pass out and be no
more, we members of this wonder class who've managed to make grades and
pass, and who, as we ourselves admit, are fully competent and fit, do first
bequeath to Franklin High affections that shall never die. 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." They're left on Mr. Colestock's shelves, so walk right in and help
yourselves. You're welcome always during class-just slam the doorg don't
bring a pass!
Our picture, posed with special care, falls to the Art Department's share.
We modestly suggest, that's all, it hang with 'Blue Boy' in the hall!
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.
Do ghosts return? We cannot say! Some think they don't, but then
they mayl So if, sometimes, in months to come, when you are feeling blue
and glum, or otherwise are out of sorts at marks you've got on grade reports,
you hear a noise like muffled moans, or stifled sighs or feeble groans, that
center in the darkened halls or emanate from classroom walls-well don't he
scared and run away, but whisper softly then and say: "Thais not the wind
that jars the door, it's Good Old Summer Twenty-four that's come again, with
psychic sigh, and feels old pangs at Franklin High!"
All signed and sealed, with legal care-just try to break this if you dare!

Curtain rises on stage, containing two railroad benches, ticket

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

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,
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

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

JOE-Well, fiirst you ought to be particularly interested to know that THYRA

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
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. That reminds me, "Some are born great, some acquire great-
ness, ancl some have greatness thrust upon them." Wonder where l
heard that. Guess it is one of the remarks of NELLIE ONSTINE, who
occupies a position the government of the United States created for her,
that of Poet Laureate. Now let me think, maybe it's one of the witty
remarks of that famous vaudeville success, LUELLA KEENAN SAW-

heart, in Shakespeare's latest and best comic tragedy, "l'LL BITE,
WHAT NIGHT IS IT?" Mr. Baldwin's wife will also make a
personal appearance. Footnote. Flapperetes, clon't stay home on
account of this. .
JOE-Well, well, l see Del's still up to his old tricks. fReadsJ. One of
the most exclusive affairs of the season was a smart dinner-dance-tea,
given by the MISSES MARCIA GREEN, ESTELLE GILMAN, and
ESTHER RAVICH, assisted by FRANCIS WYLIE and MARGERUITE
PERRY. The guest was LYLE BALDRIDGE. The entertainment con-
sisted of fancy dancing by the Terpsicorean artist, JACK SANSOM, and
his graceful partner, MARGARET GROTTHOUSE.
Here is something else interesting, it must be a new discovery l guess.
freadsj ROBERT COYLE and ELIZABETH HAYN announce the
discovery of a new highly reducing agent. Guaranteed to take off five
inches a week. None better on the market. Send order direct to us
and we will deliver when we get ready.

Now if that had just the opposite effect, I might try some of it, but as
it is-fEnter Society Lady and her maid. They back onto the stage,
looking back and listening to a great deal of tugging and puffing off
, stage. The tugging and puffing enters. It is Arvid! I-le is carry-
ing- a trunk weighing a half a pound!!
ARVID-The owners of this joint might at least have a medium-sized dray to
help me tote things around, or one of those electric mechanical men
that HELEN HOOK invented. But then, I suppose people always pick
on someone that is fat and good natured.
fThe lnquiring Reporter Enters?
REPORTER-Truer word was never spoke, and I ought to know. fTo
Society Ladyj. Your name, number, date of birth, and views on the
anti-hairpin act, please. I am reporter for 'ATHE SCANDAL'S
SCREAM" and if you know any jokes I am always ready to take
SOC. LADY-Cto maid?-Lucille, will you take charge of this person?
CAside to maid onlyl Give her lots of detail.
IVIAID-fto reporter,-This is lVlrs. Appleton Cider, nee MISS CLARA
BIXLER, fthe reporter ceases to write and the entire group stands
amazed at the disclosure of the ladies' name, who is about to leave for
an extended tour to Watts, where the internationally known ROLLIN
ENFIELD will meet her. lVIr. Enfield, or rather General Colonel
Enfield, as he is called, since his capture of the bold and notorious
bandits, MARY TESELLE and LELAND PRESTON, whom even the
militia could not subdue, is a friend of the family. Wells, why don't you
' write, you don't think you can remember it all do you?
EVERYBODY-But I know Clara Bixler. So do I. And me too.
Who are you anyway?
SOC. LADY-l'm CLARA BIXLERI
ALL-I used to go to school with you!
REPORTER-l'm DORIS GATTWINKEL.
ALL-We all know you!
JOE-And I'm JOSEPH HANDLEY, Esq.
ALL-'Can such things be?
ARVID-Well, I'm ARVID IVIAEDER.
ALL-Can such things be! !
IVIAID--And l'm LUCILLE LOC-SDON.
ALL-Wonders will never cease!
DORIS-Now, that we are all reacquainted, let's each tell all the news we
know. I, for one am dying to hear all the jokes on every one.
LUCILLE-I wonder if they are successful?
CLARA--ls there any scandal?
DORIS--If there is, my paper can use it. fGets out pencil and notebookf.
Clara, you start the ball rolling. fClara hesitatesl. Shove off.
CLARA-Well, IRENE ALCOCK, EULALIA ALLISON, ROSE CALLA-
HAN, and IVIYRNA FIELD, are all chorus girls touring the country
under the tutelage of WINIFRED BENSON. They have danced before
all the presidents of the world, and been ousted only a dozen times or so.
It is really wonderful.
ARVID-What, that they didn't get thrown out oftener?
CLAIEA-'Of course not, idiot. Really Arvid, you haven't changed a
ARVlD-Just what does she mean by that?
DORIS-Go to a mentality expert and you'll understand.
CLARA-fresumingl-LAURENCE ALl..lN has become very famous thru
agriculture. He has succeeded in growing sweet potatoes on the roots
of tomato plants, thus getting double use of the ground. 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. Some people say that is why it takes him so long to
get well, but l don't believe a word of it.
ARVID-Of course you wouldn't.
LUCILLE.-Did you know that THELMA CREEL had become famous
throughout the world for her books on foreign countries? The remark-
able thing about it is that she has never moved from Highland Park,
yet is able to write such inspiring things as her latest and greatest,
"Bananas and Gula-Gula Birds of Greenland's lcy lVlountain." fThelma
THELMA-Did l hear someone speak of me?
ALL-THELMA CREEL, welcome to the reunion!
THELMA-fshaking hands with alll-This meeting with old friends of my
youth makes me feel the divine urge coming on. I shall write a thrill-
ing tale of ice-hot mountains and translate it into Latin. Wouldn't
Mr. Stevens be pleased?
ARVID-Wouldn't it be better to please the present company first, ancl-post-
pone the urge a few minutes?
THELMA-Some people will never understand.
DORIS-It must be difficult for you, Thelma, But you understand me don't
you? Let's go on with the old ladies sewing circle. who is next, you Joe?
JOE-Yes, l believe so, but my name is JOSEPH. please.
DORIS-Oh, pardon moi, foublie, l didn't know you had changed it.
JOE.-JAMES CONLEY has become famous for his novel idea of making
new songs on old and cracked records. 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. fcontinuingl-JAMES FONDA is California's
representative to Congress and LOIS FONDERSMITH accompanies him
on the piano, during all his campaign speeches. They say the effect
is marvelous. DEAN FOSTER and GEORGE FUSCO are both models
of Arrow Collar Adds. People say their mail is heavier than that of
URIEL GRECHTWS, the Asphalt Arab of the movie world.
LUCILLE-That sheik certainly has some Press Agent. All the things one
reads about Uriel can't really happen.
DORIS-Well, VIRGINIA GLENN is his press agent.
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.
ALL-That is all very wonderful. We certainly had a successful and com-
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. FRED-
ERICK HAYN ran him a close second in the race and would perhaps
have won were it not for the many votes which Arthur received thru the
help of LENA GEIST and FLORENCE HAMILTON.
fplirainmaster enters, calling trains,
TRAINMASTER-All aboard, for all points south, north, east or west.
Grasshopper Junction, Melt Inn, Turnout and Eclipse. fexitj.
DORIS-Didn't that voice sound familiar?
JOE--Yes, maybe it was Hamlet's ghost.
ARVID-I know some real news. 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. We want only one train, thank you.
JOE--fto trainmasterj-Pardon me, but your voice is painfully familiar,
what is your name?
TRAINMASTER-My name is one that stirred millions. I am none other
than the illustrious DONALD TYLER.
CLARA-The class genius!
ARVID--Another lost ewe has found its home.
JOE--But I thought that you were nominated for the governorship of
DON-Oh I was, but you see I was defeated by ERHARD ROSTLAND on
a margin of only three votes. I have since learned that those three
Kitgijxallfge cast by MABEL NORRIS, GRACE NOTTLESON and DONA
LUCILLE--But why the position of trainmaster?
DON-Well, you see, my friends all advised me not to let my voice go to
waste while I was preparing to run again, so I took this means of further
cultivating it. 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
CLARA-That reminds me of the Bachelors Club. FRED WHITE is the
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.
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. QAII crowd around joe as he reads,
The steamship-aeroplane combined, manned by CLIFFORD BUSH
and owned by the wealthy flea trainer, LUCILLE lVIcCLINTOCK, was
wrecked in the Los Angeles river late last night. The entire crew and
all the passengers were miraculously saved by the heroism of ARTHUR
I-IANDCOCK, who lined the fear maddenecl crowd up in single file and
forced them to wade to shore. 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.
DON-They should have used some of "MARION KING'S SHOCK AB-
SORBANTH on the girls. IVIARLYN RITZIUS demonstrates it down in
LUCILLE PICOU'S l-2 8: 3 cent store. It costs a dollar a bottle.
ARVID-Yes, and ELIZABETH VAUGHN, who is a missionary working in
the wilcls of the Plaza, says it is really wonderful.
DON-Good heavens, I have forgotten to think of time and here I should be

CHOLARSHIP, character, leadership and service are the
requisites for the choice of the Ephebians. 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

My feet shall follow
The hard brown road that leads ahead.
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.
By Nellie Onstine
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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."
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.
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.
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.
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.

The best and surest way of stimulating true patriotism is to increase
the interest of American students in the history and growth of the constitution.
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
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.
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
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.

--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
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

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,

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
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.

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.
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.
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-
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-
All the officers have done fine work during their terms of administration
ln helping build up a respect for the Franklin laws and customs.

,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.
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
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.
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
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.
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.
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
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.

"Farley-vous Francais," old dear?
If not, you're quite passe, l fear!
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.
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.

"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.

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,

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

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-

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.

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 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.

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.

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
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.
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.

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 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.

OOR Richard says "The noblest question in the world is 'what
,good may I do in it.' "
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. '

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.
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.

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-
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.

. 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 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.

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.

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.

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.
That the popularity of the music course becomes greater
every year may be clearly seen from the increasing number of

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
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
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
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
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
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.
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

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.
IIC D 'fBAlI
Q 0 ,
ln years past the R. O. T. 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.

Snatches from a Diary
There's always something taking the kick out of life! And now l've
started back to school for another ten months. It did seem pretty good to
see everybody, though. Whew! but there's a lot of new kids and teachers
too-so many that they're going to have a clouble lunch period. Wonder
how it will work?
Franklin's so bloomin' big she's full and running over. We moved into
the tents the other day. You might have known it, I have classes in both of
them. Freeze to death in the morning and roast in the afternoon. Who
says we don't sacrifice any to get an education?
My, but this has been the long-e-s-t week! lt's only Wednesday and it
seems like Friday. Guess it's on account of that spiffy aud ca!! we had today.
Harry Rimmer was there. Nuff said!!
Today is "Pops-iclen day. We've been having aud calls all week and
this morning the Student Council had charge. The big idea was "keeping the
grounds clean." Some boys brought in yards and yards of pops-icle sticks
strung on a wireg and they found them all on the campus, too. After aud.
the whole school paraded around the block to inspect the grounds and you
can bet we found them mighty clean.
Got an awful toothache tonight, and l'm not going to write much. We
had a rally on the field today. Mike Godett presented the big score board
on behalf of the class of S '23. Now that's what l call a practical gift.
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.
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.
"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!
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.
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
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.
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.
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!
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.
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.
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."
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
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-
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.
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.
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.
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
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-
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
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
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.

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' ,

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
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"
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.
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
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"
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.
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
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.
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.
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.
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.
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
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."

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.
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
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.
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.
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
ALFRED RIENHART: "Tick" made one of the best guards seen on local
lots. He broke up enough plays to make the opposite team exceedingly
ROY HUGHES: "Whitey" was a steady, consistent man, always on the job,
rarely sucked in and never entirely out of the play.

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.

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
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
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.
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

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.

Berry and Laird rounded out the field nicely. The pitching end of the

At the time of writing the Kitefliers hold an l l-2 victory over Roosevelt

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
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
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 Kiteflyers terminated a successful season by winning from both

For the first time in the history of the school swimming was put in
letter class. Each man gathering the necessary digits received a five inch
block letter. This year found a very promising aggregation representing the
institution in the paddle sport. The team won a decisive victory over the
Oxy mermen and were barely nosed out by other local schools.
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
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.
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.
