Franklin audiences entered the world of the mentally ill
and came away with a greater feeling of understanding as the
Senior Class presented The Curious Savage. Directed by Mrs.
Shirley Perryman, the traditional event, in the form of a comedy,
fully lived up to the expectations of the students.
Mrs. Ethel P. Savage CElaine Stanleyj, after her husband's
death, is continually hounded by her step-children until finally
they arrange to have her put- away in "The Cloisters", a home
for the mentally ill. While there, Mrs. Savage learns not only
about herself, but also about the world in which she will resume
life. Matters reach a climax when her children, all wealthy,
corrupt successes in life, learn that their "crazy" step-mother has
wisely taken the Savage fortune out of their hands and taken it
with her to the home. Of course, "all's well that ends well," and
the play is brought to a conclusion with all three designing Sav-
ages being without money, despite their respect for wealth.
Faced with an uncertain future, scheming children, and a broken career, Mrs.
Savage, portrayed by Elaine Stanley, stood alone in a pensive mood.
On many occasions it's much easier to remain uninvolved,
and Lee Kierdorf, Bob Fixler, and Carol Beaudette did iust
that, assuming the famous see-no-evil, hear-no-evil, speak-no-
evil pose in an effort to shut out the commotion.

Franklin Players pursue dramag
Debaters argue service For all
Entranced with the nature of human behavior as revealed
in drama, as much as with the bright lights of a waiting stage
and the applause of a pleased audience, Franklin Players con-
tinued the theatrical traditions they have established. In October
they sponsored the fourth annual day-long bus trip to Stratford,
Ontario, where the travellers saw the famous Shakespearean
company perform "A Midsummer Night's Dream."
Spring plans leaned toward a slight revision in the One-
Act-Play program. The group hoped to combine music and art
achievements with drama for a Performing Arts Festival.
Debaters had their ups and downs, as well as pros
and cons this year. Under the direction of a new spon-
sor, Miss Hassett, they mastered the thesis: "Resolved:
that the United States should establish a system of com-
pulsory service for all citizens." And then, on several
occasions when they were to compete against other
schools, the bus never arrived to take them to the meet.
