Such fabulous personages as Casey Jones and john Henry have been immortalized by be' coming a part of our treasury of folklore. Due to the successful endeavors of this group they have earned a permanent place in the memory of the American people. In like manner the leadership, friendliness, and origin- ality of the Class of Forty-Nine have earned it a place in the annals of Franklin High. For it was this class that originated the idea of a Lil' Civic dance in honor of the Senior B's. The winter class substituted a Hay Day for the accustomed Dress-Up Day, while the summer class put on what was acknowledged to be the best Sweater Day program in Franklin's history. This class also holds the distinction of being the first to put out a class paper, "The Hitching Post." It is, therefore, in due respect and honor for their achievements, we of the Almanac Staff dedicate this book to the Class of Forty-Nine. -- -I ' .arm ,,,J,.....a., ,f 57A Ljnglflgel' L5 ill CACWQQ of iA8 j7I"lZil'l l Ralph E. Winchester Mr. Ralph E. Winchester, principal of Franklin High School, is his official title, but he is better known as Mr. Winchester, friend of Franklin students.

Mr. Winchester has made many line improvements in Franklin during his adminisf tration. He has put in a nutrition period that helps everyone through the long morning. He has speeded up our athletic program by insisting on more coaches so that every boy can have more individual attention. He has encouraged student leaders to take over more of the actual responsibility of running Franklin and has given the court more jurisdiction over wrong doers. All in all his term has been beneiicial in many ways. Ben students owe their allegiance and their friendship to Mr. Winchester and to Franklin and they give both freely and gladly. rinciloa Pa 20l'l'l0l'L JQQIJ tA8 j'l1il'l MHCIBP 60l'lil"0f Orrel Graham Elsa Mae Smith Mrs. Elsa Mae Smith and Mr. Orrel Graham, the Girls' and Boys' Vice Principals of Franklin, have worked hard to make Franklin one of the best schools of the city, and to keep thc school running on a smooth schedule.

For many years this project has been c ried out completely in the spring semester. How vs ,fgis year's staff has been privileged to have two semhe 'ers in which to try to put out one of the finest Almanacs ranklin could have. In the position of editorfinfchief, Inamae Kahlstrom had many tasks to perform. With the cooperation of her staff she planned and arranged the annual page by page, cutting down and lengthening allotted space at random to provide room for many snapshots. Her duties included rereading and correcting all copy, seeing to it that the scheduled pictures were taken and that deadlines were met, and making certain the Almanac had many ads. In this last category she acted as photographer, taking most of the informal pictures in that section. One of the hardest tasks in the publication of a yearbook is the art work. This year's capable art editor, Dorothy Meeker, was faced with the task of finding something to put in every empty space in the book, and then of making that something. With the able assistance of Lorenzo Ghigf 'w INAINCH 0 MLLLEN ALSELMO FABRIZZIO ANNE RADFORD ROLAND CRANDALL Cops Editor Business Manager Make Up Editor Associate Sports Editor 44 k NORMAN MCLEOD REX MILLER Sponsor SDOHSOI' SW! lieri, assistant art editor, she tried a medium that was new to Franklin yearbook: scratchboard. Her success in this venture can readily be seen throughout the book. Associate editor Nancy O'Mullen had the trying job of getting all the copy ready, or seeing that those to whom it was assigned had gotten it ready before the deadline. Asf sisting her in this job was staff secretary Phyllis Bonar, who typed every bit of copy that went to the printer. The duty of Shirley Smith, photographic editor, was to schedule all group pictures, make appointments for Senior and Faculty pictures, and make up montage pages. Anne Radford, Makefup editor, spent many hours of her own time cutting pictures, and arranging them so they would be ready for the engravers on the deadline. Anselmo Fabrizio, Business Manager, was in charge of the distribution and sale of the Almanac to the student body, while advertising manager Roy Hayden sold ads for the Almanac to merchants of Highland Park. Recognition is due to Mr. Norman McLeod, and Mr. Rex Miller, sponsors of the Almanac. Mr. McLeod worked with the staff, and saw to it that everyone did his job well.

She also edits the front page and writes copy, and makes certain that assigned copy is in for the deadline. This position was ably Hlled by Cecelia Jenks during the winter semester and Jackie Bender in the spring. Bertha Huffman and Jackie Bender were cofeditors of the second or feature page during the winter semester, while Riley Marquis took over the responsibility during the spring. Louis Roberts and Melvin Gemberling rounded out the feature page staff as assistant editors. The sports page was handled by Fred Clsen and his assistant Roland Crandall during the football season, while Chris Pontrelli was editor for the fair weather sports in the spring, IX OR KRANTZ ROBERT ANDERSON Printing Sponsor Business Manager 46 JACKELINE BENDER RILEY MARQUIS Editor Feature Editor QW The task of editing the back page and arranging the advertisements falls to the associate, or news editor. This position has been ably illed during the last two semesters by Bob Anderson and Bertha Huffman, respectively. Since outside publicity is important for any school the press staff maintains a special group in charge of this field. This year's publicity editors have been jackie Longerbeam, Philip Lozano, and Eddie Stowell. Three special editions of the Press consisted of the Alumni Edition, the Cub Edition, and the Senior Edition. The Cub Edition was edited by the Journalism I class to give them experience for future publicaf tions. The last edition of the Press every semester is the Senior Edition, which is devoted to the Seniors, their future plans, and their activities at Franklin. Highlighting the spring semester was a Press Banquet held in the school cafeteria. The banquet was to honor the outgoing editors and announce the new Press Staff. After dinner speeches and music selecf tions were presented by the Press, Almanac, and Printing Staffs.

Glen Allen and Larry Caminiti plugged the holes at guard. Rueben Tysell, Eddie Stowell, and Wilbur Inman carried the brunt of the offensive load until an eligif bility ruling shot the backield full of holes. As the future darkened, up shot Bob Beal, until now a reserve halfback, to play the three greatest games of his life and carry the Panthers to a championship. Bob's incredif ble performance won him a spot on Mory Kapp's 'LI-Iall of Fame". Franklin rolled to five straight victories including a 13fO conquest of Narbonne in the Milk Bowl. As the time for the city playfoffs came around more injuries cut through the Bens team and the inf jury riddled Panthers dropped a l3fO decision to the powerful Garfield Bulldogs. Frank Tinkham fonly a juniorj received a berth on the nrst string AllfCity team as center. Bill Chase and Eddie Stowell were named on the third string. Tinkham, Chase, Stowell and Inman placed first string AllfNortherng while Hoff, Beal, and Pendleton landed berths on the second teams. 69 Opening their quest for the '48 Northern League Championship the Hessman lost a heartbreaker to Polytechnic 12 to 6. The Bens scored their only tally late in the first half on an offftackle plunge by halfback Rueben Tysell. The Parrots tallied their first touchdown early in the fourth period, as Wananabe, a 200 pound guard, intercepted an attempted Ben screen pass and rambled sixty yards to pay' dirt. Capitalizing on Ben errors the Mechanics pushed over the winning touchdown late in the final minutes of the game. Zlmnl-En 33 - slfnmfn 6 Avenging last year's defeat by the Lincoln Tigers, the Panthers rolled over the Bengals by the onefsided score of 33f6, in the Pasadena Rose Bowl.

Eddie Stof well, reserve half was the only player to score two touchdowns as he tallied in both the third and fourth quarters. Clyde Lamberton, Del' bert Archer, and Wilbert Inman scored the remaining three touchdowns. Z-YMHMR I4 - Efmonf I3 Scoring in the last three seconds of play on a fourth down desperation pass, a weakened Ben eleven upset the previously undefeated Belmont Sentinels with a 14113 victory. The Panthers tied the game 1343 on a beautiful last second aerial by Eddie Stowell which was caught by left end Ronnie Pendelton on the dead run, deep in the end zone. When the oflif cial gave the touchdown signal the clock had run out six seconds. Charles Robertson came in and booted one through the uprights to give the locals their second win of the season. ZYWMH 7- 'IXMAM 6 In the first night league game in the history of Franklin, the Panther pigskinners won a hard fought 7 to 6 victory from a lighting Wilson eleven in the Rose Bowl. Again Charles Robertson saved the game as he did in the Belmont tilt, by booting the winning point. The Ben's only touchdown came late in the second period as Eddie Stowell rifled a twentyfyard aerial to right half Bob Beal who snared it on the Mule five yard line and raced into the end zone. Z7mnMn 33 - Wafafaff 6 Clinching their fifth Northern League Crown in six years, Franklin's powerful grid squad ran roughshod over a weak Marshall team by the lopsided score of 33 to 6, Display' ing a crushing running attack the Panthers rolled up and down the Held almost at will.

Zialeflaf Franklin's B Basketball team wound up the '48 schedule with the Northern league crown in their possession. It was the first B casaba championship in the history of Frankf lin. The team was coached by Coach Clarence Ebers, but the main exponent in this sucf cessful season was Leon Marx, who scored the most points of the season and was high point man in every game. Leon reached his peak in the Wilsoim game, when he chalked up 21 points for the blue and buff. The B melonftossers won 8 out of 10 league games and went to the city tournament. By a mere three points, the Panababes lost to the Hollywood five, which, incidentally, went on to cop first place in the city tournament.

Last year, the Ben musclernen swept undefeated to their polar crown. This year they won but one league meet, and took fifth place in the league. Coach Frank Hess, shifting from his usual basef ball post, mentored the apparatus team. Standout, and high point man for the Bens, was Riley Marquis, who competed on the highfbar, freefex, and tumbling. In the Northern league meet, Carl Newton topped the Bens by copping a third on the long horse.

Under the guidance of Coaches Clarence Ebers and Tony Spangler the Ben cindermen captured two dual meets and dropped three. As the season opened the Panthers gained revenge for their defeat of the previous year by crushing Eagle Rock in a practice meet 61 2!3f42 1!3. The journey to Marshall proved a disastrous one as the Panthers absorbed a 75 2!5f28 3X5 licking. Allan Carver copped a blue ribbon in the 880 in 2:O9.4 while Leon Marx cleared eleven feet for a first place tie in the pole vault. Tough luck again dogged Franklin as they met Poly on the Parrot's oval. They fell just short of victory by a 5 3f5 1 count. Thaddeas Taft, Poly's terrific sprinter, copped the century and furlong dashes in times of 10.1 and 22.6. He was closely followed by Dale Frailey and jim Clapham in each dash.

Bright spots however were Allan Carver's 880 victory and Stewait, Smith's nosing out Sonny Gillette in the mile. Next on the agenda was highly touted Lincoln with such A11 City stars as Erbie Schopper, Emilio Alcantar, and Bendel Rio. And while the Bengal supf porters gasped in amazement the Bens proceeded to trounce their rivals to the tune of 5 7Mf46Mp. Erbie Schopper proved to be no fluke, however, as he reeled off a recordfshattering 21.6 furlong and a 10 feet century. Carver pulled the upset of the day as he outfkicked the favored Ben del Rio in the 880 in the fast time of 2105.4-. Franklin's relay team also toured the mile in the speedy clocking of 3 :O8.9. The Panthers concluded their oval meet schedule by thumping Wilson 75 f29 on Moore Field. Eddie Stowell scored a win triumph with a 10.4 one hundred and 21 'SMH in the broad jump. Other blue ribbons for the Bens were Carver in the 880, Clapman in the 220, Barker in the shot put, Haisman in the low hurdles, and Smith in the mile and the mile relay team.

Keeping their victory string alive the Panbabes crushed a strong Lincoln B team to the tune of 4968. The outstanding mark of the day was Eugene Grazer's 19'8" leap in the broad jump.

Franklin's defending baseball champions failed to recapture the Northern League Crown, but they did a good bid for the top spot. Coach Meb Schroeder again coached the horsehiders, but he had lost some outstanding players. Fred Garner, spectacular pitcher of Hall of Fame distinction graduated along with Bob Maras, Corko Perez, and Ed Strickland, This years pitching staff was headed by Aaron Ross, a right hander, and Fred Olsen, veteran southpaw. jay Nelson, alias "Ozark Ike" spearheaded the Ben banning attack, and occupied the cleanup spot. The Panthers opened the league, meeting Belmont at "43" playground, Bel' mont's home field, Fred Olsen was on the mound for Franklin and is credited with the 4 to O victory. Highlight of the day was jay Nelson's double with two men on base, which accounted for half the Ben's runs. MEB SCHROEDER Varsity Coach Returning to Moore Field, the Schroedermen blanked Marshall for their sec' ond league victory. Aaron Ross was on the mound for Franklin. Jack Schram, Memo Gemberling, and jay Nelson all played superb ball. Roll' ing ahead, the Panthers met their age old rival, Lincoln. Coach Schroeder elected Fred Olsen to face the Railsplitters, and face them he did, as the Tigers fell 5 to O before the Panthers blistering onslaught. The end of the irst round found the Panthers facing the Wilson Mules. A bad day found the locals on the wrong end of the final score, the hrst setback of the season, and Fred Olsen's Hrst loss. As the second round opened, Franklin again faced Belmont. This time Schroef der sent Aaron Ross against the Sentinels. Last year Ross was pitching for Belf mont, but he took the mound determined to pitch his best for the blue and buff. The game was a thriller from start to finish, a veritible pitching duel. Late in the game, Ross came to bat, and jim Stewart was on base.

Aaron Ross was credited with a no hit, no run game against his ex alma mater. The shock of the season came as Franklin again faced the Marshall Barristers. Aaron Ross had a bad day, as did the whole team, and Marshall scored an im' pressive upset. This setback put the crown out of reach of the local nine. Although they didn't keep a perfect slate, they proved their skill by beating some highly regarded teams in practice. The U.S.C. Frosh team was one that fell before the Panther jaugernaut. Franklin's linefup was as follows: Jay Nelson, catcherg Jimmy Hancock, first baseg Loren Mitchell, second base, Jim Stewart, third base, Jack Schram, short stop, james Afganis, left field, Melvin Gemberling, center field, Dick Dreher, right field. Standouts were Jim Hancock, Jack Schram, jim Stewart, and Melvin Gem' bei-ling. 87 l Cokelet, Sherinfan, David Rowan.

Nutrition and lunch period is made more enjoyable by the choice selection of food provided each day by the cafeteria. Besides providing the faculty and students with food, the cafeteria staff also prepares banquets and breakfasts for club activities. Much credit is due the custodians. Without them, we would have unkept lawns, and dirty halls, which we have tried to abolish at Franklin High School. The custodians make our campus one we can be proud of. 92 ,mf I E 95 li -,. 3 v.- f 4 A fi -M 4' 'QM Wiz..
