We wish to extend our thanks to the numerous people who cooperated in mak- ing this publication possible, for they have helped us to an experience which will remain a lasting memory of our high school careers. Although we have had fun writing copy and designing an artistic book, we feel this has been a vital rung in our ladder of education. lt would be a great life it all educa- tion were so pleasant! Completing our work by the dead- line and making important decisions, has taught us to plan and consider wisely and calmly each problem that has arisen. .We choose the Scenic West as our theme, mainly be- cause the class of S'4l decided to call themselves "The Westerners," but also because at this time there is an exigency for learning to appreciate the peaceful, beautiful surroundings in which we of the West live. The pioneers of the old West are noted for their spirit of daring and ad- venture. lt was with this same feeling of adventure that we reorganized the l94l Almanac and produced the records which represent the Benjamin Franklin' student body with- in these covers. All that is lacking now is your approval. Q lecbcafion In a world hurled into chaos and confusion by a war born of man's selfishness, the democratic way of life of the western hemisphere is on trial. just as tyranny and oppres- sion seek to overpower free men today, so also did greed and hate harass the American pioneer. These people developed a code of ethics which forced men either to live by it explicitly and be known as good men, or to break its bonds and be recognized as outlaws. The westerners' strict adherence to these unwritten ideals brought law and order out of lawlessness and confusion. The rugged stability of the men and women impelled them to further accomplishment, as they struggled against the inevitable discouragement and despair involved in building a new world. Determination comparable to that which aided our an- cestors in developing a civilization in the West is appear- ing today to influence the transformation of this section of the United States into a great cultural and industrial cen- ter. Although industry and culture are requisites of civil- ization, if we are to continue our way of life, we must pre- serve our freedom. The ideals of the pioneers, reinforced by their determination to practice them, brought demo- cratic theories into being beyond the Mississippi. If nations and individuals will revive those time-worn ethics of the pioneers, life lived in the spirit of the westerners can bring democracy to the world again, as it brought it to the West before. Because of what it has done and will do for our country and the world, it is to this eternal SPIRIT OF THE WEST that we dedicate this book. IEAN BRUEBACK LAURELA IONES ARVILLA CHAPMAN Sid!

With this group of office helpers are also in- cluded those who so expertly perform the secretarial duties of the school. In the personnel office, guidance is given to meet student curricular and job placement needs. Under the capable direction of our jovial counselor, Mr. john R. l-loist, the possibilities of courses offered in Franklin, in Frank Wiggins Trade School, in Metropolitan School of Business, in the Los Angeles City College and in the uni- versities, become clear to Franklinites. Assistants in this work are Mrs. Bartlett, Miss Campbell, Mr. DaVall, our placement director, Mrs. La Pierre, Mrs. Warner, and Mrs. Small, that energetic secretary who has charge of all student records. The major problem confronting Mr. Tlcompson, the registrar, and his assistant, Mrs. Kilmurray, is the attendance of Ben students. ln the library, we find Miss Mallory and Mrs. Corbett distributing and caring for the ten thousand volumes made available there to facilitate student study. Mrs. Warr is secretary for the school, secretary to Mr. Teall, and has as assistant in the main office, Mrs. Bagdasarian, who is also secretary to Mr. Axe. Mrs. Pitsen- berger, who transacts the business of the book room, has charge of the thousands of books issued to students of the school under the California free textbook system, and is also secretary to Miss Hodgkins.

Secretary gudenf Mel? icem The student body officers assume the responsibility of -keeping alive the spark of democratic ideals in Franklin. These leaders of student self-government, popularly elected each semester, are chosen for their ability to maintain the high standards of efficiency and trust-worthiness demanded by their executive positions. They are the pacemakers of the school, essentially outstanding in scholarship and leadership, and on their shoulders rests the responsibility of guiding the ship of stu- dent activities through safe waters. Distinguished by their faithful and loyal service have been the officers of the past year. Through their constant efforts, many aspects of school life have been definitely improved, and a more ardent school spirit takes the center of the stage as one of the results of their administration.

How well I remember my high school days and that most famous of all graduating classes, the class of Winter l94l. While considering my topic for today, it seemed to me that you all would be most interested in hearing about what some of those graduates of Winter '4l are now doing. Nat- urally, they have all gone far in their chosen fields and are the outstanding successes of l96l. To begin with, we all know that Rene tFrenchyl DeSaix is seeking an officeg is a candidate for the presidency of the United States. And after the campaign? Who knows? He may still be running. jim ll want to be a croonerl Longcrier, a famous politician of the class, is following a tradition he established here of running for office, he is also running for president. The other candidate in the campaign of l96l? Yes, you guessed it- Franklin D. Roosevelt. Tom Mumford, our glamorous former Senior A president, has become a big man in aviation. In fact, he's just a big man all around. Who would have suspected twenty years ago, when Tom began to get just a little heavy around the middle, that he would have kept right on gaining weight? He now tips the scales at 250 pounds. This greatness overwhelms us. Some of you may be amazed to know that Bob lcurly locksl Blake has become as bald as an egg. So help mel I could hardly believe it myself. He now works in a Bald- lVlen's Better Wig Shoppe, and stands out as a shining example. Perhaps some of you recall our graceful dancing girls, Ethel Collins, Barbara Lightfoot and Frances Raiford, formerly of the interpretative dance class. They have all pursued their dancing careers, and we find the three now clicking their heels as second, third, and fourth from the left end, in the second row of the chorus of the popular Earl Carroll Show, and week-end performances with the N.T.G. chorus. Three bearded, gray-haired old men, bowed and stooped with age, are a regular accepted sight over around the Frank- lin club house and in the social arts classes. Perhaps, a few of you realize that these three are none other than Ed Butler, Tony Garcia, and George Keene, still trying to pass a course in social arts. Richard ipretty-boyl Richter has become a renowned pub- lic speaker and lecturer. He is currently touring the nation and thrilling his feminine audiences with his latest lecture entitled "My Formula for Charm" or "Why All the Girls Ask Me to Ta-ke Them to the Promf or "You Simply Got to Have Glamor These Days." Iris Hill and joAnne Parry, those long remembered sob-sis- 22 ters of Winter '4l, have both become famous. They are now writing the want-ads for the Peoria Daily Smirk and collabor- ating on a book entitled "Our Light Won't Fail," or "We'II Always Carry a Torch." Sherman Olmstead has really come up in the world since his days of fruit selling at dear old Si Perkins' market. Sher- man now has an open air market all his own. Almost any morning at nine he may be seen overseeing his crew of two- wheeled fruit cart pushers along Hill street gaily shouting, "Buy 'em here-Fresh fruit and vegetables." Our carrot topped friend, janet Rankin, is now the propri- etor of a honey of a little cafe known as Mother Rankin's Real, Ronion, Reeking, Ramburger Roast Shoppe. Dorothy ll met him at Civicl Horn, who is Mother Rankin's chief assis- tant, extends a cordial invitation to all, to drop in for a de- licious case of carbuncles, bunions, corns-vitamins, c, b, and c. Helen jean lmake mine a jimmyl johnston is the lost and forlorn soul you see so often wandering around the corner of Hollywood and Vine still looking for-it's been so long we have all forgotten what. Those would-be Thespians of Winter '4l, Gladys Topolski, Beverly Brown, and Marilyn jones, the three voted most likely not to succeed, have defied all predictions and are now work- ing in the Little Theater off Pershing Square! Harry Daum, the great salesman of the senior class, is going down to the South Pole to sell penguins Arrow ties. jackie Thomas, the Romeo of the basketball floor, will be America's best-dressed man. just what you thought, eh? Ed- die Deyarmond, the sparkle of the diamond, will be playing with the New York Giants. Eddie has gone up in this work. At present he is five feet nine inches tall. Spencer lRobin Hoodl Price, known for his crooning around the school, will have his own program over the fish network. Spencer's sponsors, the Sea Food Company, pay him five thousand mackerals a month. Lois Wallner, Newport-Balboa's golden gift, has just won the Catalina-San Pedro swim by a couple of seconds. Pretty fishy, what? Lowell lFlashl Gates, the track star of the seniors, will be giving his legs a workout on his bicycle, singing, "Ting-a-ling, I'm the Good Humor Man!" "Coming events cast their shadows before them," so it all may come true.

Well, fair ones, it is the year of l96l, and as we gaze back to the summer of l94l we can see graduating from Benjamin Franklin high school many of those people who have made their mark in the world of today. For instance, that financial tycoon, Dick Douse, has organ- ized a parachute-manufacturing business which has as its motto, "lf it don't work, bring it back." Dick reports he's never made a refund yet. That pretty model, Maxine Churc- hill, is still modeling bathing suits for the O'Cee Strapless Bathing Suit Company. She was recently selected the most photogenic creature without straps! And can you imagine that after those long years of faithful and brilliant service, Manuel Cruz has finally been made sports editor of the Down- town Shopping News? Don Ventrella is packing them in, in a Pismo Beach side- show, where he is known as Banana-Beak Ventrella, alias Slippery Snout, the only man who can smoke a cigar in the rain, and the most beloved guy on the pike. That brilliant l?l politician, Patrick jerome Hillings, is running on the Egotist Party Ticket for the all-important position of Commissioner of the City Dump. He recently made U.S.C., the school which gave him a scholarship in journalism, very proud of their for- mer protege, for he deserted the Fourth Estate for politics, thus relieving them of the embarrassment of admitting that he wasn't a second Van Passenl Those Wodehouse addicts, Ethel jones, Virginia Wadsworth, and Hope Thomson, have gone into editorial partnership, recently finishing their latest masterpiece, "How to Win Men and Influence Husbands," and, believe me, are those three authorities! Laurel jones, to put it candidly, the woman who always wanted a man with high ideals and dark curly hair, but most of all a MAN, is -well, she finally found him! Our erstwhile Senior A prexy, Don Pretzinger, studied dili- gently at the University of Oregon, receiving his reward when he was appointed head Forest Ranger in Victory Park No. Zl Dick "Hotentot" Sleight is beating the drums for the Salva- tion Army and is featured nightly at the corner of Avenue 58 and Figueroa. Clorinda DiCecco, alias Madame LaZonga, has started a hep-hep joint on Main Street where she teaches the famous rhumba jump. john Foley, Leon Melie, joe O'Brien, Melvin Oelrich, Gil Pelerin, jim Officer, Bill Reinke, and War- ren Russelle, all former Ben Athletes are now starred in the latest production of the American Ballet Company, entitled 33 Qt A lfljjgI'atchkMe, l'm a Butterfly," directed by charming Karen T. of g F if if ,fi jean "Any port in a storm" Pistonetti and Alice "C-ive me a sailor" Arena are now working as barkers in the penny arcade at ismo Beach, where they continue to attract the crowds. Af r long years of patronage, joe "Gentleman" Krueter, is at last ead usher at the Dirty Dime, recently elevated to the Filthy Fifteen since loe's term in office. Oakley "Dimples" Honey has finally realized his greatest ambition, becoming Scout Master of the famous Skunk Patrol. At latest reports, Herbie Kraft, the senator from the Ozarks, has the upper chamber of the legislative bodies in an uproar, and has aroused national interest in his record-breaking fillibuster of llO hours-still making a plea for the abolishment of women drivers. Putting his experience to great use, Ervin Dean, that yell leader extraordinary, has accepted the position of chief pro- fessor of the art of yell leading at Sub Normal University. jim "Has you seen the light?" Vernon, has started his own revival meeting in Pershing Square. He is preaching against the evils of women and acclaiming the advantages of being a hermit. luanita "Cuddles" Gamet has established herself and is doing nicely with her new drive-in stand situated in the heart of her old stomping ground, Santa Fe Hill. Latest reports on the newspaper sports pages claim Bruce Bogue is booting home winners right and left as the leading jockey of the Santa Anita season. Patrick Billinghurst-that dignified gentleman of the army-was recently court-martialed for appearing at a full dress parade in his B.V.D.'s, following a private strip poker game. jim Traughber, he of the "love 'em and leave 'em" fame, is now owner of the Knit One, Purl Two Knitting Shoppe on Monte Vista, while that erstwhile student body secretary, Anita Shields, has organized a Protective Secretarial League to shield the working girl against designing bosses. That little ray of sunshine, Doug Odney, is at present on the radio as an announcer for the Smilin' lrishman's program. People now have the satisfaction of being able to turn Mr. Odney off! Tom Ikeda, student body president in l94l, may be seen throughout the baseball season at Wrigley Field, where he sells peanuts and popcorn, and it is really true that Peggy Scholl, that red-headed ball of fire, has at last achieved suc- cess in the theater, she is now featured as the Queen of the Runway at the local Burlesque!!

The robins' voices are silent, The swallows have winged far away, And all that was green and golden, ls mother of pearl today. The snow is fair on the mountains, The peaks are splendid in white, The hills have forgotten their old loves, Their hearts to the new, beat light. The summer has died on the mountains, And the mountains can somehow forget, But the warmth in my heart that perished ls memory's bittersweet yet.

Both senior presidents presented worthwhile programs at the meetings during the past year and encouraged the good spiritwhich pervaded the cam- pus on the semi-annual Luggage Days. The Girls' League has two junior divisions, the BlO and AlO. These girls elect their own officers and arrange their own meetings, and in this way get training in leadership.

The Girls' Council and Associators jointly sponsor the annual spring student body dance. Two dances, one with the Associators during the winter semester, and the other with the Hi-Hatters during the summer semester, were high-lights of the Council's social events. A tea and a breakfast given by the Council girls serve to install the newly elected members into the organization. A special tea for mothers of members is also held. Climaxing the year's work is a banquet held by the present members for the alumnae of the Council.

Forty boys, selected on the basis of citizenship, scholarship and leadership, comprise the group. They are pledged to supervise campus conduct, keep order at assemblies, usher at athletic events, and perform similar services when needed. Elected active members govern the club. They meet in secret to select new associate and active members, elect officers, and establish club rules. This past year, the Associators, besides performing regular duties, brought cheer to the less fortunate at Christmas time, contributed toward Boys' Week, and jointly sponsored the Spring Student Body Dance.

The student members of the court de- cide the course of discipline to be followed by the defendants, trying only those of- fenders reported by Franklin's student service organizations, the Girls' Council and Associators, as well as those reported by any of the students. The objective of the court is not merely the conducting of trials for erring stu- dents, but to discover the underlying factors behind the infringements of Franklin's laws.

Miss Edith M. l'-lodgkins, girls' vice-principal, has endeared herself to the girls of Frank- lin ever since she accepted her position in September, l9l6. Indeed, her charm, efficiency, and graciousness in performing her duties will be missed by students and faculty alike. Miss Raean Baltzley first joined the personnel of Franklin in the capacity of secretary of the school, but since l92O has served as a commercial instructor. Her departure robs us of an industrious and courageous little person. One of the outstanding sculptors in the United States is modest Mr. Andrew Bjurman. An example of his work is the hand holding the torch of learning atop the Los Angeles Pub- lic Library. Upon his retirement, the inspiration which he imparts to his students will be sorely missed. Leaving in February, l94l, Miss E. Alberta Clark, English and Spanish teacher, com- pleted twenty-three years of faithful service to Franklin. Her enthusiasm for teaching was surpassed only by her determination for her students to learn. IQQZC Gag Q 1 , gf' W,-. x.4.+5 xQx'SU fclw fs QSM!

The University of Southern California awarded to Iris Hill, W'4l, a journalism scholarship on the basis of her out- standing ability as editor-in-chief of the Franklin Press. Pat Hillings, Sf4l, co-editor of the Press, was the recipient of the four-year journalism scholarship awarded each year by U.S.C. to one boy in the entire nation. Hope Thomson, student body vice-president, and Virginia Wadsworth, co-editor of the Press, earned honor scholarships to Occidental by competitive examinations. At the State of California industrial Education Association Convention this spring, Steve Miller won first prize for furni- ture in the state-wide competition, as well as third place in the wood turning division, while Donald Walker received third prize for his entry in novelties. Randolph Winters and Bob McVey had blue ribbon awards for their excellent Engineering Drawing Project. ln the American Legion Poppy Day Poster Contest, High- land Park unit, Elmer Ashton, Lewis Keys and Lonnie Pawley won first, second, third. The posters of Ashton and Keys won first and second in the District competition, leaving that of Ashton to be sent into the state competition. The Latham Foundation for the Promotion of Humane Edu- cation this year awarded third place in the High School divi- sion to Lewis Keys. Honorable mention was made of the work of june Duffy, Ralph Sanderson, Lonnie Pawley, jack Stringer and William Perez. ln spite of the good intentions of the art and literary staffs, this edition of the Almanac could never have reached your hands without the aid of certain individuals. Representing the Carl A. Bundy Quill 6' Press, Mr. john Morley guided the editor in making the dummy and prepar- ing copy for the printer. Mr. Waldo Edmunds, head of the Annual department of the Mission Engraving Company, cooperated in keeping the engraving within the budget and providing the best of cuts as well. Mr. 1. Edmund Watson and his brother, jim, were strength itself when photographing individual seniors and activity groups for the book. Their willing cooperation made it a pleasure to have them as photographers again this year. The Automobile Club of Southern California graciously lent their half-tones picturing outdoor Western scenes. These are featured on the division pages, and lend a more profes- sional touch to the book. Last, but certainly one of the most important acknowledgments we wish to make, is our thanks to a Franklin student, for the editor is truly grateful to joe Krueter, S'4l, who kind- ly took the first string varsity picture when it was discovered that it hadn't been made. However, joe's contributions to the Almanac didn't cease there, for being winner of the annual snapshot contest, he submitted reams of pictures to be found on the Campus Snaps pages, helping to make this section one of the best in years. 54 MMM fglfiffw M55 Wm Vi 'Xxx ml Of l l"Cll'l'lCl,tlCff With the presentation of "Seven Kids and a Spy," a three-act mystery play written by Mr. Rex Miller, Franklin's new Little Theater was officially opened. Under the direction of Mrs, Kathryn Offill and Mr. Miller, the students of the advanced drama class redecorated the theater. Starring in the theater's first opus were Beverly Brown, Bob Borgman, Marilyn jones, Roy Gholson, Esther Hitch, jo Anne Parry, Phil jackson, Spencer Price, Helen jean johnston, Lloyd Hughes, Nellie Kaufman, Doug Odney, Blanche Hardy, Bob Goodrich, and Dana Skolfield. The world famous Charles Dickens' "Christmas Carol" was the Yuletide offering from the drama department to the Franklin student body. Dana Skolfield gave an excellent perform- ance as the inimitable Scrooge. Other members of the cast included Pat Hillings, Phil jack- son, joe Rotito, Elsie Mather, Gladys Topolski, Larry Foschee, George Haimsohn, Harold Ol- ney, Roy Gholson, Gloria Newquist, Peggy Scholl, Margaret Ostrander, Milton' Scott, Su- zanne Smith, jack Nixon, and Nancy Farley. The annual Faculty Frolic, always a gala affair, reached a new mark with the performance of two shows in one. The faculty women were responsible for "Glamour Girls, Incorporat- ed," written by Mrs. Virginia Church, and the faculty men presented an act of up-to-date grand opera, "I Smell Smoke." The costumes were marvels to behold, and we shall never forget those stellar performers, Miss Hodgkins, Miss Wolf, Mrs. Church, and Mr. Axe. Mr. George Wing entertained with a skit between acts. "Curse You, jack Dalton," a heart-rending melodrama, was the second show in the Little Theater, accompanied by an olio typical of the gas light era. "Curse You, jack Dalton" was noted for its sterling performers. Among them were Gloria Newquist, june Doran, Mar- garet Ostrander, Peggy Scholl, james Officer, Cecil Smith, jack Nixon, Nancy Farley, Bob Goodrich, Betty Cox, Dolly Simpkin, june Horton, Elaine Sundeen, Marie Wilkinson, Shirley McLaughlin, Tresa Wammack, Dana Skolfield, jack Wills, Esther Hitch, Claudine Clemens, Don Pretzinger, Barbara Davis, Richard Walters, and Elmer Nosler. "june Mad," the Senior Play, was the year's final dramatic triumph. Suzanne Smith played the starring role of Penny Wood. Other characters were Bob Goodrich, Don Pretzin- ger, Gloria Newquist, Pat Billinghurst, Doug Odney, Margaret Ostrander, Geraldine King, jack Howard, Cecil Smith, Esther Hitch, june Horton, Randolph Winters, Dolly Simpkin, we .X4 l'l'ldI'ldC Once again the enthusiasm of Benjamin Franklin students assured the publication of the Almanac, and once more the staff of the annual set to work to produce an accurate record of the l94O-l94l school year as well as to improve the publication. Changes inaugurated by the industrious students who are responsible for this issue of the Almanac include reor- ganization of the divisions, the addition of a new section, Student Government, and a hu- morously written account of the year's calendar, instead of the usual cartoon depicting the highlights of the spring and fall semesters. Editor-in-chief of this volume was Laurel jones, who spent hours of tireless effort direct- ing and working on the book. Laurel's enjoyment of the job lightened many of her darkest hours, when the deadlines were at hand, and the copy had not come in. lean Bruebach and Arvilla Chapman, co-art editors, were elected to their positions by the staff class consisting of Alan Dietz, Bob Hart, jim Hewitt, Esther Hitch, Nellie Kaufman, loyce' Miller, lack Stringer, Mary Taylor and Harriet Valerie. These people were invited to enroll in the staff class, because of their outstanding ability as artists. lt was througn their talent and perseverance that the art work was completed, and the many pictures were mounted for the engraver. Special mention should be given to Nellie Kaufman and lack Stringer who designed the lay-out of the book, lt was also lack's idea to use the Coronet Script as headlines. ln the literary department, Virginia Wadsworth, assistant editor, proved indispensable in gathering and classifying the seniors' activities as well as for contributing her inimitable style of writing, which is easily recognizable within these covers. The two associate editors, luanita C-amet and Ethel jones, were faithful to the last, never failing to come through with their assignments on time. Under the capable direction of Karen Strickler, the poetry contest progressed, for her pres- ence in the creative writing class was a constant reminder of this traditional competition. Hope Thomson, the dynamic little club editor, had the enormous task of compiling the club section copy with Karen's assistance, and the two girls completed a praiseworthy job. - Pat Billinghurst, R.O.T.C. editor, compiled the enormous quantity of material for his sec- tion, assisted by Bruce Bogue. Both boys were officers of the unit and were well acquainted with their subject matter. Hillings, the dynamic and inexorable, otherwise known as Pat j., editor of the Press's prize winning sports page during the fall semester, directed copy assignments for the sports sec- tion as sports editor. His contributions of copy were supplemented by those of his assis- tants, Manuel Cruz and Pat Walsh, also Press sports editors. Their experience on the Press kept them in close touch with the athletic events, enabling them to do an excellent job. This Art Staff class was an innovation in the organization of the Almanac project and was the brain-child of Mrs. Roberts. Thus, this year's book had the advantage of having the cream of the crop of Franklin's artists working on its pages all semester. With this large group of people to share the responsibilities of the art work, the book has received the bene- fits of their various abilities, and no one person 'got more than his share of grey hairs. A pillar of strength was Mrs. Alice La Pierre, literary sponsor, when the reams of copy be- gan rolling. Her advice and counseling were priceless to the editor and her staff. As usual, Mrs. lessie Roberts guided the group with her years of experience as an Almanac sponsor. We shudder to think of the fate of the Almanac if Mrs. Roberts ever deserts her post as an art advisor and guardian of the budget. . Only the most sincere and loving gratitude is appropriate to extend to Mrs. Virginia Church, advisor for the poetry contest and a noted Western writer herself. Her sweet en- couragement helped the poets and the staff to live through many most difficult hours, Mr. Herbert Phoenix handled finances for the Almanac and directed David Snegg and Howard Borschel in soliciting ads for the book. At last the final piece of Copy went to the printer and the last photograph to the engrav- er. The staff breathed more easily, but they all agreed that their only regret was that they couldn't do the job over again from the beginning. ' 56 4 57 .748 SIWMH lim FrankIin's weekly publication, the Franklin Press, completes its twenty-second year this semester, and continues to live up to its exacting motto "Nothing But the Best." The Press, a nationally recognized paper for several years, again won first place in the high school divi- sion of the contest conducted by the Columbia Scholastic Press Association of Columbia Uni- versity. The winter Press staff which edited the prize winning paper, entered an entire semester's work, which was judged on the basis of make-up, editorials, proof reading, headlines, con- struction, typography technique, content, news, sports, features, and advertising. Heading the staff responsible for the champion paper was Editor-in-chief Iris Hill. Her assistants were Laurel jones and Rene De Saix. Virginia Wadsworth, associate editor, edited the back page, which received high honors in the Columbia University contest. Assisting her was juanita C-amet. Sports editor Pat Hillings put out the page which experts at Columbia marked "excellent" Tom Ikeda was assistant sports editor. jo Anne Parry edited the feature page during the fall semester with the assistance of Karen Strickler. The remaining members of the staff were Hope Thomson, news editor, Clorinda Di Cec- co, club and girls' sports editor, and Ethel jones and Marion Runyan, municipal editors. Several fine columnists were featured in the winter semester of the Franklin Press. Laurel jones wrote a charming tidbit column called "As I See It Around the Campus," which ap- peared on the feature page. Also on page two was Karen Strickler's "Aside from Which With Emily Twitch." Iris Hill supplied the feature page with "Behind the Editor's Desk," in which she discussed school events in an editorial manner. Appearing on the front page was "What's in the News," by Manuel Cruz. This column informed the students of the news of the school in a light humorous style. The back page featured columns by Virginia Wadsworth and juanita Gamet. Virginia wrote "A Termite's Touch," in which she viewed the happenings of the school from the viewpoint of Egbert, the termite, her original creation. Especially popular with G.A.A. girls was juanita Gamet's column, "AthIeticaIly Speaking." On the sports page Pat Hillings wrote that excellent column "The Spectator" and Rene De Saix wrote "Casaba SIants." Pat Walsh was a sports writer. Virginia Wadsworth and Pat Hillings, co-editors-in-chief, headed the spring semester's Press staff. Working in collaboration, these editors put out a modern prize-winning paper. Hope Thomson assisted them. Gloria Newquist, front page columnist, wrote "Behind the Scenes." Editing a professional-looking back page was juanita Gamet, associate editor, with the able assistance of Ralph Rickords, Back page columnists were C-erry Bain and Ralph Rick- ords. The feature page was made up by Karen Strickler assisted by Suzanne Smith, who also supplied the page with a charming column, "Season's Scribblingsf' Co-sports editors, Manuel Cruz and Pat Walsh, succeeded in putting out a well-balanced sports page assisted by Tom Ikeda and sports writers Ralph Rickords, Charles Barr, Doug Odney, Tom Ikeda and Bob Crain. Editors completing the spring Press staff were Marion Runyan, news editor, Laurel jones, club editorg and Marion Runyan and Ethel jones, municipal editors. David Snegg was busi- ness manager. Staff cartoonists were Bill Perez and jim Hewitt. , Members of print shop staff, who make the publication of the Press possible, are Hosmer C-raham, linotype operator, Bob Naff and Bruce Brady, pressmeng Carlo Fea, LeRoy Roberts, Bob Wilcox, Paul Cornelius, and Fred Thiel, make-up men. Through the efforts of Mrs. Kate Cranon, journalism teacher, Mr. Rex Miller and his car- toonists, and Mr. Ewart johnston, printing instructor, the Franklin Press is able to maintain its prize-winning standard, "Nothing But the Best." 58 VOL L Fra Hi-f , Clubs i, lsi and" .lm ax L. will pwvui ing as the Hi--'x Ymhi thcix' Habit svsnvstcr, a "Many Inland' 'as rhv Minh rating Rmirlquvz and his or- pwvidee muais' fur Ihr In charge of tha 9 inf- duh qvmisicicnts, of mf kixiqumw U D-lam, Hi-Y mexy, Plhlhm-.Aw vwwrythlrmg bvzwh 1-uemxw. rxmxw mile? nxvxpwl by me Lmdfa' the viwfpwfscfwl UAYC E: W PML Mzmswzxwnik and ixxclv' Vfnmi, E.m'r5.' i'2i3g?fm:a IZLY wwf. time Hifi gg:-wp was . doxurxvmwz N lamp:-4-www A Meg Kata ,iz in ,fu-tsl M V.

Hentschke, speech coach, the speech department has provided those interested in the art of self-expres- sion with an opportunity to exercise their talents in contests and assembly programs. Chief event of the fall semester was the Herald-Express extemporaneous oratorical con- test. A number of students participated in the school tryouts with the result that Pat Hill- ings was sent to represent Franklin in the semi-finals at Polytechnic High School. ln the W'4l commencement exercises, the two senior speakers were Barbara Brace and Norman Haller. Starting off a spring semester that was literally crowded with speaking events, Richard Soderberg and Pat Hillings spoke before the Eagle Rock Lions Club in the "Democracy in a Changing World" contest sponsored by that organization. Pat Hillings was awarded the Community Medal and the right to compete in the zone division. Franklin was host school for the World Friendship sixth district Pan-American Symposium, and student speakers from Roosevelt, Eagle Rock, Woodrow Wilson, Lincoln, and Franklin competed before a packed local assembly. Carl Harrington, the Ben representative in the contest, captured third place honors. Winner of the tryouts for the Banker's Contest was Frieda Rapaport, former junto Club president. Other forensic activities were the declamation contest and the Highland Park Realty Board sponsored discussion on community improvement. After extemporaneous tryouts be- fore a group of judges, Pat Hillings and Hope Thomson, both student body vice-presidents, were selected as S'4l essayists. Among those who took an active part in public speaking events for the year were: juan- ita Camet, Frieda Rapaport, Richard Soderberg, Carl Harrington, Helen lean lohnston, Mari- lyn jones, jim Vernon and Pat Hillings. 60 KQLHJGI' of ik?

Re- orting: ch Hess on the first day of practice were just four lettermen, john Foley, Don alker, A ie Wilson, and Steve Broadhurst, and only Broadhurst had seen regular service . f weeks, Coach Hess had to completely rebuild the Panther pigskin machine, nd t time the first practice game with Eagle Rock on the Oxy field came around, the betti in favor of the Eagles. But when the dust of that battle rolled away, the score stoo O . Franklin led in first downs and it was only the timekeeper's gun that saved the Eagl Ro eleven from defeat, as the Bens were on their opponent's goal line. rfie traveled to the Avenue 54 greensward the next week and, because of the fine Ea Rock showing, the fact that the Bulldogs outweighted the Hessmen as much as 35 nds to the man still didn't dampen local enthusiasm. The inevitable happened, however, an a fighting but outclassed Franklin eleven went down to a 35-7 defeat. Of course, Gar- fiel went on to become "city champions" but that didn't heal Panther wounds at that time. Belmont came to Franklin for the first Northern League game. Eagle Rock had conquered the Sentinels, 25-O, and the Franklin outfit was openly confident, too confident as was later proved, for Belmont went home with a I2-7 victory. After that, something happened to the Ben squad. ln two weeks of heavy practice the team underwent many radical changes. The turning point came in the second league contest at Wilson. At the half the score stood, l3-l3, due to some brilliant open-field running by Archie Wilson and the rugged line-plunging of "Chubby" Roussel. Two touchdowns were registered in the second half and Franklin had a 27-l3 N.L. victory. Marshall felt the next wield of the Printer axe, collaps- ing before the Ben advance to the tune of l3-6. The Panther gridmen had found themselves. From the Cinema City came the Hollywood Redshirts to try their luck against the Hess aggregation. A blocked kick by john Foley which Dave Snegg recovered in the end zone started the scoring for Franklin, and when the final gun sounded sometime later, the score- board read, Franklin l9, Hollywood 7. The Rose Bowl, long a historic place for deciding championships, was the scene of the big Franklin-Lincoln meeting for the Northern League title. Before an estimated crowd of 6,000, the Panthers and Tigers battled furiously, until in the third quarter, fullback Duane Roberts, whose gallops through the line kept the fans on the edge of their seats all after- noon, crashed over for six points. Archie Wilson made good the conversion and Franklin led 7-O. Up until the final minute and one-half, the Bens had the N.L. crown all sewed up. But Lincoln's jack Cobie, running from deep punt formation, raced into Printer territory, and after a series of smashes at the tired Panther forward wall, fought his way over the goal. A few seconds later he plowed over for the extra point to give Lincoln a 7-7 tie. Because of Franklin's earlier defeat by Belmont, the Tigers became the league champs for the second successive year. Runner-up in the league race, Franklin was invited to participate in the P.T.A. Football Carnival in the Coliseum on November 29. The Bens were paired with the Southern League title-holder, Manual Arts-, in the fourth quarter of the North-South classic. Representing the North, the Panthers scored the biggest upset of the day when they played the favored Toil- ers to a standstill. The turning point came when a Manual end attempted to punt out from the shadow of his own goal line, but john Foley, easily the best lineman on the field, broke through, and as 70,000 people watched, blocked the kick. Franklin recovered on the Toil- er l8 and a few plays later, Archie Wilson toured left end for the score. The Hessmen had collected a 6-O victory to give the North a lead that resulted in a 30-Zl win. When the Helms All-City teams were announced at the gala Football Banquet, john Foley was presented with the Helms Olympic Medal in recognition of being selected on the first team. Archie Wilson was picked on the third team. The official All-Northern choices found Foley, Wilson, and Steve Broadhurst on the first eleven, and Duane Roberts, Tony Cuglielmino, and jim Officer on the second team. ur the recedng season. 86 .X if Q-.,..,...A A :R-nel' Hifi! 00 Cl Although blessed with some of the finest material seen in many a moon, Coach Lee Duke's football proteges could unleash only enough of their potential power to snare a fourth place in the league grid ranks. lnitiating the '40 season against Belmont, the locals drew a 6-6 tie against the Hilltop- pers. Scored on in the first quarter by a deceptive reverse, the Bens retaliated through Louie Bisetti's block and recovery of a Sentinel kick behind the goal line. ln their second game, the Dukemen fought Lincoln to a scoreless tie. Led by dynamic Howard Borschel, the Panthers many times threatened the foes' goal, but couldn't push into pay dirt. A blocked kick by Bisetti, together with jim Vernon's recovery in the Mules' end zone led to the 6-O midseason win over Wilson High. Marshall's combination of short bullet passes and off-tackle thrusts drew a l9-O victory over the local contingent in what was the Printers' real heartbreaker of the season. Had the Bens won the skirmish, they would have been set for a championship playoff. Specializing on speed and tricky reverses, the Hollywood Shieks humbled the local lighties 6-O in the final game of the season, scoring on the very first play of the game. Although twice in the shadow of the foes' goal posts, the Panthers couldn't dent their line. Seniors whose grid career ended with the '40 season were Tom lkeda, Louie Bisetti, Howard Borschel, Manuel Cruz, lim Vernon, Gil Pelerin, George Vercelli, and Bob Blake. Forming the nucleus of the squad, nearly all of these lads received "All-Northern" honors for their fine performances. Other players were Silverstein, Black, Cryer, Buliavac, Simonson, Ward, Patton, Overmier, Stansauk, Wood, Hagaman, Williams, Kittleson, johnny and Tony Baroni. l9l9a,l'Cl tu!! Led by Co-captains Dick Wilkinson and Everett Scott, Coach Francis McCollom's gym- nastics squad annexed a high third place in Northern League competition to terminate one of the most successful seasons in years. Although high-lighted by much individual talent, the Panther squad placed only three men in the city preliminaries-Dick Wilkinson on the parallel bars, Everett Scott on the long horse, and Gilbert Allan on the side horse. Of these, Wilkinson alone survived compe- tition to make "All City," this record coming through his tie for fourth on the bars. The official list of lettermen is: Allan, Andrews, Begin, Cruz, Boyden, Dayton, Frew, Burian, Martinez, Weatherford, Wilkinson, Hart, lkeda, Kailey, Margucci, Mocsny, Scott. Thompson, and Matson. . olzffermen Handsome, buff-colored letters trimmed in blue and worn on brilliant blue sweaters, dis- tinguish the lettermen of the Girls' Athletic Association.

Most of the time there was good passing, shooting, and fast breaking, but there was still something wrong that I couldn't put my finger on." So stated Coach Claude Downing, varsity basketball coach, in referring to the l94l0-4l casaba fiasco. A quintet that at the start of the season apparently had the makings of a fine varsity squad, was unable to summon the all-important fighting spirit that makes good teams great and so wound up a hectic campaign in the league's fifth spot. Hollywood met the locals in the curtain-raiser and by the narrow margin of one point, 29- 28, defeated the Downing outfit. A flu-wrecked five tangled with Marshall on the Barris- ter floor and collapsed before the subsequent league champions to the tune of 44-I8 in the second N.L. contest. The only win of the league season was a 27-l 5 victory over the Wilson Mules. ln its last two encounters the Ben varsity succumbed to the smooth-playing Bel- mont and Lincoln fives. Picked on the official Southern California Board of Basketball first Northern League team was ace forward Melvin Oelrich, whose fine offensive play resulted in his setting a new school scoring record when he personally accounted for 29 points in a practice game with St. Agnes High. Responsible for a good deal of Oelrich's point-garnering was the steady and speedy Pancho Perez, forward, who specialized in feeding set-ups to his teammate. Tall and rugged Otto Wirz saw action in the center position. lack McCarter, joe O'Brien, and Don Custavson shared the defensive honors at the guard spots. Substituting for the regulars were such dependable and valuable casabamen as Fred Barry, Leland Baldwin, Larry Long, Ignacio Villava, Byron Schramm, Bert Wilmore, and Roland Schindler. K gaafeigaf Darth Frank and Herbie Kraft, co-captains, headed their B cage squad through a fairly successful season, as they ended the five game league series in fourth place. Kraft was consistently high point man for the locals and was usually closely followed by Frank, for- ward, loy Pace and Don Parker, centers. lim Puryear, Bill Perez, and Cordon Waugh displayed fine ball handling and passing from their guard positions, throughout the entire season. Dick Douse, Oakley Honey, Ralph Click, Bob Oelrich, and Larry Hoff were the reserves. Student coach, Tom Mumford, formed his entire team from C lettermen and tenth grad- ers, leaving the pre-season outlook very poor. However, the B's won four out of ten prac- tice tilts and looked as though they might go places. The competition got too tough in the Hollywood, Marshall, and Lincoln affairs, and the lightweights were defeated. The fast- stepping Printers came back and knocked over Wilson and Belmont High Schools, however, giving them a .400 average for the season. Ci Z?MLefAa!! Winning only one league game the class C Basketballers this year ended a dismal season in fifth place. The little fellows were centered around Leo Beach, jackie Thomas, for- wards, Bill Rader, centerg Billy Callas and Bill Welch, guards. Thomas was the only re- turning letterman and was captain of the squad. In the opening game of the season a sound drubbing was inflicted on the midgets by the Hollywood lads. Leo Beach was the high scorer in this game, as he was consistently throughout the season. The following games, except for the Belmont tilt, proved to be equally disastrous. These were with Wilson, Marshall, and Lincoln. Hollywood High School won the Northern League championship. 90 VARSITY BASKETBALL LETTERMEN B BASKETBALL LETTERMEN C BASKETBALL LETTERMEN Melvin Oelrich Alphonso Perez Otto Wirz Jack McCarfer Don Gustavson Leland Baldwin Joe O'Brien Fred Barry Larry Long Herbie Kraft Darth Frank Oakley Honey William Perez Dick Douse Donad Parker James Puryear Larry Hoff Bill Blades Gordon Waugh Robert Oelrich 91 Don Bates Leo Beach Billy Callas Marvin Hawkes Engle Hendrix John McMuIlin Dick Newberg Jack Thomas Jimmy Van Noy Bill Welch I galelgaf For the first time in two years Franklin was represented in Northern League D basket- ball competition. Despite the fact that the local D five finished the season in the league cel- lar, the players, all B-lO's, gained valuable experience and will be prominent members of the higher classification squads in future casaba campaigns. Competing against schools boasting of a wide array of substitutes, the Panther aggrega- tion had only five men on the team, all of whom played every minute of every game. The two speedy forwards, Leo Hillings and Bob Baker, accounted for most of the point-making and led the quintet into action. Playing a fine game at center was Wally Hutchinson. De- fending under the Ben basket were the two stellar guards, Ralph Fishel and Danny Brewer. Highlight of the season was the Wilson contest when Leo Hillings sunk two baskets in quick succession to tie the score in the last minute of play, only to have the Mules come back to win by three points. Bob Baker hit the bucket for I4 points in the Wilson match, becoming the season's high point man. A 12 somaff City champs! That was the enviable title earned by Franklin's powerful and precedent- shattering varsity softball aggregation that captured the Northern League title for the sec- ond consecutive year. Coach Tony Spangler's Panther baseballers took the Los Angeles soft- ball championship in the Washington High School Invitational Tournament by conquering Manual Arts in the finals of the city-wide tourney. Tony Cuglielmino, whose hurling led the Bens down the championship trail, performed the season's most outstanding accomplishment by pitching a 7-O no-hit, no-run game against the hAarshaH judges Playing only one game with each of the five N.L. squads this season, the Printers were forced to sandwich in the contests between Southern California rains that forced postpone- ment of games on several occasions. Winning over Lincoln, Wilson, Hollywood, and Mar- shall, the varsity lost only to Belmont. ln the latter battle, the locals dropped a l-O contest despite the fact that C-uglielmino fanned l7 Hilltoppers. The final game with Lincoln's horsehiders gave the Highland Park ten the league crown by virtue of a 6-O Franklin win, the third shut-out of the season for the locals. Cuglielmino and Don Walker, with averages of .333 each, were the leading hitters for Spangler's aggregation and it was their dependability in this department that contributed a large part to the team's outstanding success. Archie Wilson's .3l2 and Pete Brown's .300 average rated them close contenders for batting honors. George Vercelli was fifth with .l87. The city champions lined up as follows: Ciuglielmino, most valuable player and no-hit hurler, handled the pitching chores, Louie Bisetti, four-year letterman and errorless receiver, caught Cuglielmino's slants, Don Walker, leading Slugger, expertly handled first base du- ties, joe O'Brien, steady and dependable, worked at the keystone sack, Archie Wilson, star hitter, was short-stopper par excellence, young Larry Hoff, he of the powerful throwing arm, at the hot corner, George Vercelli, peppery and dynamic, toured the short center spot, Loyal Tacy, flashy ball-hawker, performed in center field, Frank Petta, another veteran, guarded left field, Pete Brown, ably substituted by Eddie Buliavac, roamed the right field garden. Following in the footsteps of the Ben varsity, the local B softball squad also came through with its second consecutive Northern League title. The pitching of Stan Shaw and the stellar playing of Eddie Buliavac highlighted the individual performance.

Roy McQuown, playing his first year of tennis, was the ace of the Ben racket swingers. Fred "Blitz" Hill played excellent tennis all season, as did Leo Beach, Ralph Click and Doug Odney, Ben singles men who demonstrated easily that they were the class of the league. jim Croft and Frank Sander proved to be one of the best doubles teams in the league, los- ing only to Hollywood. Two-year veterans, Hill, Sander, and Odney, completed their tennis careers at Franklin. ' The B tennis team playing without proper practice facilities nevertheless showed true fighting spirit although they won only one match. Darth Frank, Hobert Nichols, Dale Wright, Stan Wainer, Verlin Thomasen and Captain Dick Skieje proved to be the stars of the B team. amifg Zac "Only mediocre," would be about the best way to describe the l94l varsity track cam- paign. Lincoln and Wilson were the only schools to fall before the Downing-Duke machine in dual meets, the Panther squad seeming to bog down when the competition became stronger, and the fact that a number of top-ranking men missed service in one of the con- tests was another factor that contributed to the poor showing. Among the large array of Printer sprinters, two men stood out-Archie Wilson and jim- my Traughber. Archie copped both the l00 and 220 against Marshall, for his only double victory. His best time in the century was l0.4. Captain jack Kruckeberg did not seem to be up to his usual form and consequently triumphed in the 440 race only over Lincoln and Wilson. Leon Melie, followed by Don Pretzinger, consistently added points to the Franklin cause by double wins in the two hurdle events. Little Bill Perez was the Franklin mainstay in the gruelling mile run. Bill turned in a 4:54 victory over the Wilson Mules and took a second against Marshall and Hollywood, doing under 4:50. Bill Moje also scored for Frankf lin in the four-lap affair. Tony C-uglielmino, injured part of the season, and Bert Willmore, were dependable performers in the high jump. Tony teamed with Dave Ward and Walter Thompson in one of the team's strongest events, the pole vault. Ward was one of the best vaulters in the league, soaring ll feet, 9 inches for his best performance. Ervin Dean, Steve Sander, and Frank Petta worked in the 880. Shot-putters were Leon Melie, winner in the Belmont and Wilson contests, jiggs Coulson, Gordon Batchelor. Loyal Tacy, Bert Willmore, and Archie Wilson performed for the Bens in the broad jump. fl-ac Three men set the pace for the Ben success- jack Savage, Howard Borschel, and Tom Ikeda. Savage, ace 660 man, was victorious in the lap and one-half event in every meet, coming within one-tenth of a second of the school record of l 128.2 in the Hollywood and Wilson meets. Borschel was the squad's best dashman. He consistently scored in the l00, anchored on the relay team, and set a new record in the shot-put. Ikeda, all-city medal holder, was high point man by virtue of his multi-wins in the two stick races and the broad jump. jack Savage, Art Beverford and Mike Margucci led the way in the strong high com- petition, Dick Douse and Bud Puryear soared skyward in the pole vault, Bill Miller, Bill Fraser, and the two Crain brothers, Willie and Bob, captured Ben points in the tough l320 yard run. Other sprinters were co-captain Sam Beck, Herbie Kraft, and Ray Woods. George Vercelli and Woods supported co-captain Ikeda in the broad jump. Dick Overmier and Bud Puryear assisted Borschel in the shot-put. 94 .

Captain Welch was the team's ace high- jumper and low hurdler. George Caul was the high point man as he astounded his coaches by taking two firsts in every meet for a total of 50 points. C-aul ran the 50 yard dash in 6.0 seconds, and broad- jumped close to l9 feet. After losing to Lincoln and Belmont, the midgets took a narrow win from Marshall by a 40-37 score. Hollywood's squad, the league titlists, swamped the mites, 60-l7, in the most lopsided contest of the year. ln the final encounter with Wilson the locals were nip- ped 39-38. Leo Hillings, Wally Hutchinson, jack Holberg, lack Woodford, Bob Hoff, and Bill Chick all scored consistently for the C squad. Uardify goofgaf ogneulo Undoubtedly one of the many things that contributed largely to the fine success of Coach Hess' varsity eleven last season was the fact that the squad was not a team of in- dividual stars, but was instead an eleven that depended on the essential factor of teamwork for almost all of its offensive thrusts. At the two end posts were a couple of stalwart wingmen that played practically 48 min- utes of every game. Leon Melie, a senior, was particularly noted for his fine defensive play. Tony C-uglielmino, left end, did most of the pass-snagging duties and his wor-k rated him a place on the second "All-Northern" team. Two burly tackles, john Foley and Richard McCune, were towers of strength in every contest. The fact that Foley was chosen on the first "all-city" eleven is enough to demonstrate his ability. Steve Broadhurst and Dave Snegg worked at guard, Broadhurst rating all-Northern also. They were capably substituted by Warren Russelle and liggs Coulson. Hosmer C-raham, assisted by Pete Newquist, was hailed for his performance at center. Blocking or quarterback for the squad was big lim Officer and his small but rugged un- derstudy, Don Ventrella. Archie Wilson, if we must single out anyone, would probably be selected as the team's most valuable and dependable man. From his left halfback post he called signals, did most of the ball carrying, punting and a good deal of the passing and pass receiving, as well as exhibiting a brilliant defensive game. The other halfback chores were divided between a couple of star passers and runners, Loyal Tacy and Don Walker. Fullbacks Duane Roberts and Paul Rousselwere two of the hardest-hitting line-plungers in the league. VARSITY BASKETBALL Fifth Place Winners klin Z8 .............................
