HISTORY OF THE JANUARY CLASS OF 1938
"Let all unite in hailing Washington" were
almost the first words we learned at high
school. With memories of Old Washington
come memories of its song.
On a clear, cold Friday afternoon, January
21, 1935 to be exact, we first saw the inside
of old Washington High. We had been in-
structed to assemble in the library at two
o'clock. It was all quite awesome. We were
not quite sure which door to go in, or which
stairs to take, or where the library was, for
that matter, but after much timid question-
ing we found ourselves in a room with a big
stage and were assigned table numbers and
chair letters. We were seated alphabetically,
and I found myself at a table with five un-
known quantities who turned out to be Mc-
Kinleyites. Mr. Hallman welcomed us and
introduced Bill Brown, president of the grad-
uating class, who proceeded further to give
us some first impressions of Washington.
Then Miss Combs gave us pointers on
school regulations, Miss Rudd explained the
assignment system, and we found that we
were expected to enter our classes on Mon-
day morning with lessons prepared, ready to
plunge into senior high school life. Miss
Rogers, the dean of girls, unfolded the "big
brother and big sister" plan. It seemed that
each of us had been adopted by a big sister
or a big brother t1OAis to youj. Anyway
our new relatives were to keep us from get-
ting lost in the big school and from barging
into strange classes. My sister showed me
how to go the length of third floor without
going through the library. One simply went
Speakring of sisters, Billie Young found
herself with a big brother instead. just a
matter of Billie girl instead of Billie boy!
There were enough of us. 1OB's to make
up seven home rooms. Think of that! and
now we are only two. Miss Soutter was chief
adviserg and Miss Byerly, Miss james, Miss
Powell, Miss DeNoon, Miss Hanson, and
Miss- Quigley the other advisers. One of
our first class duties was to elect officers.
These were: president, James Bromwellg vice-
president, Ruth jane Hubbard, secretary,
Kingston Brokaw, and treasurer, Laverna
Memories of Old Washington! Who could
ever forget the crackerbox lockers, the candy
shop between the main building and the an-
nex, Glenn Higbee's "coop" or Ruth Paden-
skej's Ford, Miss Rudd's after-school geom-
etry class? tOh, yes, she had them at Wash-
ington, too, 1OB'sl. The Martha Washing-
ton room parties, girls' and boys' councils,
home room the first thing in the afternoon,
roller skating in the halls at parties, the Home
Cafeteria-where all thrifty people ate, nine
days out of ten! fThe other day, just after
receiving our allowances, we celebrated at
Nor will we forget the assemblies at the
Paramount. As 1OB's we were assigned seats
way back in the last rows on the main floor,
where children could see but not hear. With
memories of these assemblies comes the recol-
lection of Miss Nosek running around the
lobby with an alarm clock going full blast.
This took the place of the five minute bell
and the tardy bell.
The outstanding dramatic production of
our first year was '4The Orange Colored Neck-
tie," a comedy in which our leading lady,
Marie Dolson, played the colored maid. Marie
always has gone in for a Southern accent.
The big mystery of that sophomore year
was: How did Jeanne Stookey's shoe get onto
that door in the boys' cloak room in Miss
Powell's sixth hour Latin class at the annex?
We have a mental picture of said shoe being
slyly pushed from foot to foot until it landed
at the rear corner desk. We suggest asking
Joe Markey how it finally came to dangle
accusingly from the door of said cloak room.
And incidentally the first hour Latin class
could always translate the lesson, after Mary
Penningroth's translation had made the
rounds. tYou see, we didn't have Wilfred
A lot of things seemed to happen in Miss
Powell's room. We recall one time that joe
Kinney sneaked out on the fire escape and
then got locked out.
We are reminded, too, that Gayle Koch
and Billie Young spent their first gym period
over at the Sokol Hall trying to convince
Mr. Frederick, the boys' health teacher, that
they were masculine in name only.
And there was that April Fool's day when
we soberly planned a "walkout'i in a certain
class. At a given signal the exodus was to
take place. It did-for one person. Quiet,
serious, little Ruth Jane Hubbard did a one-
man act-and found herself alone outside
the door, an April Fool, for sure. We can
still see the expression on Ruth jane's face.
Some of us remember with horror the T.B.
clinic held in the library, after which test
every one imagined himself on the road to
To turn to a more cheerful subject, jane
Downer showed her athletic prowess by being
the only IOB from Franklin to gain admit-
tance into G. A. A.
We can't leave Washington memories with-
out this bit to our credit. As 1OB's we plac-
ed third in the song contest, which was really
pretty good for 1OB's.
The last honor assembly at the Paramount
we remember as one to "go down in history."
The "Chronicle of Washingtonw was present-
ed the history of the school in six scenes,
each dramatically splendid.
With the close of school in june we bade
goodbye to Washington and our new friend-
ships begung and in September 1935 we came
up to Franklin ready to start a new year in
a new school.
We elected Joe Markey president, Mary
Kay Fiebig, vice-president, John Hershey,
secretary, and Marie Dolson, treasurer. We
had three home rooms under charge of Miss
Byerly, Mr. Peterson, and Miss Quigley.
During this year we recall the city-wide
Latin program, in which john Hershey had
a part. John always has leaned toward lan-
guages. We also recall that Mr. Peterson's
home room was the first and last one to try
roller skating in the Franklin halls. It just
isn't done where it may result in damage to
terraza floors, to say nothing of classic skulls
and pug noses.
Another memory, not so pleasant, is that of
the first class day in the new building. The
tenth graders just weren't invited. We rant-
ed and ravedg and our class poet, Ilsegret
Weber, championed our cause by writing a
veritable 'fpill of a poem" to the seniors, and
posting it on the third floor bulletin boards.
She had quite a time keeping copies up there,
because someone, presumably a teacher, took
them down as fast as Ilse got them up.
A member of our class, james Bromwell,
acted as chairman of our first song contest.
Alas, even that honor didn't keep us from
slipping down to fourth place.
The next September, which began the
second year at Franklin, school activities got
under way. The school started a paper, "The
Franklin Post," and all three of our home
rooms took their turn at putting out an issue.
At this time, also, the standing committees
formed. Members selected from our
have been: Budget, Ruth jane Hub-
bard, Martha Washington Room, Jeanetta
Hatfield, Little Assembly, Dorothy jane
Plockg Lyceum Assembly, James Bromwell.
Our class last year sponsored an assembly,
Al Priddy speaking on the subject "Can Ani-
mals Think?'l He was introduced by John
Hershey, our new president. Other officers
for that year were: vice-president, Dorothy
jane Plock, secretary, Ilsegret Weber, and
treasurer, joe Markey.
In 12B six members of our class were
elected to Sophrosyne National Honorary So-
ciety. They were: james Bromwell, Ruth
Rich, Ruth Jane Hubbard, Joe Markey, Wil-
fred Kluss, and Ilsegret Weber. To this
number two other names have just been ad-
ded, those of Vernon Guttenfelder and Doro-
thy jane Plock.
We started our last senior semester by
electing Wilfred Kluss, president: Louis jur-
genson, vice-presidentg Dorothy Jane Plock,
secretary, and John Hershey, treasurer.
Memories of this year include the Massilon
game, when we all got up at 4:30 to see the
team off, among whom our own classmates
were Collin Martin, Ralph Guy, Earl Hollen-
beck, and Joe Kinney. This semester, too,
we sponsored an assembly, "I Cover the
Waterfront" by Arthur Ponsford.
Who of the seniors will ever forget our
Hallowelen party that night in late October.
After a grand dinner of everything from
baked beans to chocolate pumpkins, eaten
by candlelight at long tables in the upper
hall, we sojourned to the roof to do a little
ffstar gazing." Miss Quigley, hearing an
awful silence, discovered our whereabouts and
shinned up the ladder after us. The rest of
the evening we had to content ourselves with
initiating the new radio in the Martha Wash-
All stars "go down," and those of our
senior play will go down in our memories in
all sorts of snapshot sketches. We shall not
soon forget Dorothy Kemp's shiny black
countenance, assuring us that she didnlt "take
up much room," Robert Brosh's perspiring
efforts with that cranky ice cream freezer,
nor Fred Arduser's wholehearted attempts to
break up housekeeping. We can still see
Ruth Rich with her nose in the air and
lorgnette in hand, Marie trying to prepare
raw chicken in true southern style, and jim
Bromwell lording it with his supposed mil-
lions. John Hershey's one and only perma-
nent, waving in his eyes, made an impression
as did Charles Dulinls attempts to "buttle,"
and Jim Bowman's indignant protests at be-
ing called an "old chimpanzee." Honey's
tantrums and Dorothy Geiger's cool stateli-
ness will linger as contrasting pictures in our
minds when, next month, we ffgo back to the
kitchen" before we get jobs elsewhere or turn
our thoughts toward college.
And as a final star in our crown we wish to
state that ours is the first class at Franklin
to have both original words and music for its
class song. We have Vernon Guttenfelder to
thank for the peppy tune, and Ilsegret de-
serves 'fa handv for her catchy words.
And so closes the history of the January
class of 1938, the last class to graduate from
Franklin with the memory of old Washington
in their hearts.-By Dorothy jane Plock.
PROPHECY OF THE SENIOR CLASS OF JANUARY 1938
Time: About ten years.
Place: The Olympic Stadium, Los Angeles,
We're looking forward to a big afternoon
at the Olympic stadium, but before we can
enjoy the events arranged by Donald Rowe
and james Stookey, welll have to satisfy our
hunger. Here's a good looking tearoom. Why,
it's Betty Jean Fosnacht's! Upon entering,
we're immediately surprised and pleased to
find another old Franklin classmate, Dorothy
Chapin, who checks our wraps, and maybe
will take our tips later on. As we move to
a table, Maxine Huff and Agnes Miner make
a couple of graceful swoops and almost fall
over each other to serve us. Having finished
our delicious lunch, we converse a few mo-
ments with friends and then hurry to the
just before we enter the crowded stands
we stop at a novelty booth, where we buy
from Allan Stewart a likeness of his famous
dummy, Peter Peterkins. Allan is having
as much success as Eddie Bergen did with
ftCharlie McCarthyl' a decade ago.
We then quickly find our places. The first
event seems to be the Marathon raceg fRah!
Franklinlj That's Collin Martin a good nose
length ahead of the two who are tying for
second place, Robert Bear and Albert
Between events, over to the right, we see
a young chap tap dancing for the amusement
of the crowd. He has, on his white sweater in
large letters the initials HF.Afl Can that be
Fred Astaire? VVhy no! It's Freddie Ardu-
ser. His partner is the much-courted Doro-
thy Bowser. They are being accompanied by
Monsieur Charles Dulaine. fWe used to
know him as plain 'fChuck" Dulin in the
good old daysl.
After this number, as there is a slight
pause, we look around us. Mrs. George
Smith, the former jane Downer, is sitting
with her well-known husband, the manufac-
turer of dripless soup spoons. Next to them
is Charles Hough, who became famous over
night with his revolutionary ideas on the
adoption of television in this country. Over
in the reserved section we catch a glimpse
of the Reverend John Hershey and his wife.
Dorothy jane seems perfectly happy in her
married life, but we hear that she sometimes
has difficulty in keeping up with John's ultra
modern ideas on religion.
Our attention is once again turned back to
the stage. This time we are to see some fancy
high diving. Everyone is watching excitedly
the slender figure of a certain young woman
as she hesitates a moment on the edge of the
sixty-foot platform before making a triple
jack knife dive into the water. There is tre-
mendous applause as this young lady is pro-
nounced the winner of the event. John Stark,
the master of ceremonies, introduces her to
the audience, and we are agreeably surprised
to find that we have come across another
Franklin graduate-Ilsegret Weber. She
steps out and is presented a lovely bouquet
of hollyhocks from Robert Diseren's exclusive
At this point in the program the water
freezes. The events change from 'fin the
water" to "on the rink," as the next one is
a performance on ice skates. We watch
breathlessly the graceful strokes and swift
flight, as, on her super-speedy skates and
with her Sonja Henie grace, Billie Young
wins the contest. fOur own Billie Young,
who used to try every skating rink in old
Getting the important statistics of the races
and the winners' histories, with serious intent-
ness, are the reporters, Clarice Ross and Bet-
ty Snyder from the 'fEvening Star" fBrosh
and Glass Incorporatedl and Betty Lou Siest-
sema and Grace Sheldon, of the Los Angeles
We donlt get a glimpse of the next event
for we are greeted by the debonair Earl Hol-
lenbeck, Hollywood's famous "eligible bache-
lor,i' who, with his secretary, Frances Kubias,
sit down beside us to relate the latest gossip
on newly successful persons. He mentions
first one of the better dressed men of the
season, Jimmy Bowman, who is especially
known for his perfect grooming, particularly
in evening attire. fShades of Beau Brum-
mell! Remember the senior play of January
1938!J Earl next gives us a tip to tune in
on Major Bromwell's Rising Stars program,
where we may hear Vernon Guttenfelder, as
concert pianist, and Dorothy Kemp, Metro-
politanls latest sensation. While we wait
let's "pick upll a song or two by Madamoi-
selle Kemp. QD. K. sings.j
Mr. Hollenbeck informs us that Betty
Kemper is making as many men's hearts
flutter as she did a few years ago in high
school. He gives us too, a hot tip about
next January's Rose Bowl game, in which
Ralph Guy is to act as coach for California
U. In response to our eager inquiries, we
learn of Marie Dolson's success as a Holly-
wood dramatic actress. For her next picture
to be entitled f'Come Out of the Garage." she
has requested to have Eugene Stewart as
stage and lighting director and Jeanette Hat-
field as wardrobe directress.
At this point our attention is arrested be-
cause below us in argumentative conclave,
we see and hear joe Markey and Robert
Goedhart, co-inventors of the Split-Second
Speedster, the new car that has just been
put on the market at a cost of ijS15,000. They
have some hapless victim between them. Why!
it's Mary K. Fiebig. We hear 'somebody
whisper that she "makes a million" as an
entertainer at high school lyceum assemblies.
Well, Mary K. always could "tell things with
a straight face!" KNOW, shels here-and
can afford a plane to take her to the next
lyceum stand-we'll just hear from that lady
in person. tShe readsj.
Since we don't particularly care about the
last Olympic stunt, we are just getting up to
leave when Mr. Hollenbeck invites us to
take tea in his bachelorts suite at the Potter-
Swiser Hotel, where we may meet other of
our former friends. He mentions the fact
that Louis and Ruth Jurgenson live there too.
Louis is making a name for himself with his
sand monopolies. He collects the sand and
sells it at a great price to the city govern-
ments when the streets are slippery.
Leaving the stadium we notice Betty Bow-
ker with her photographer husband. We are
hurrying to catch a taxi when we are stopped
by Raymond Breedlove, owner of a lemon
ranch out in the hills. He offers us a lift
across the city. In the course of the ride,
he points out to us the building where Jane
Schlemmer and Madonna Rush spend their
lives educating children of pre-school age.
Yes, and therels a really fetching shop with
"Frances McCormickl' elegantly traced on
the window. Ray tells us that ever since
Frances got her first sniff of burning bees'
wax in Mr. Zeman's Franklin art class she's
been getting more and more famous as a de-
signer of exclusive silk scarfs. Jeanne Stoo-
key owns that beauty parlor next door so we
are told, and writes silly symphonies of the
Walt Disney variety on the side.
My word! that sign "Flapjacks and Waf-
fles" smells good! And of all things-Gayle
Koch and Dorothy Geiger making their wares
right in the window! We'll certainly head in
there on our way back.
We have suddenly been persuaded to change
our plans, we'll just drop Earl for a while
and go on out to Ray's ranch for an hour or
two. Across from the Potter-Swiser hotel
we notice Jeanne Young's Community House,
which is to Los Angeles what Hull House is
And that imposing building we are just
now passing - "Oh,'i Ray tells us, t'That's
the school made famous by Joe Kinney's bas-
ketball coaching and Professor Kluss's bag-
pipe classf' Speaking of the latter, we've
learned some interesting facts about the cos-
tume that goes with the piper's art. The kilt
and plaid are of the Royal Stewart Tarton.
The whole costume is ancient and must be
worn according to the traditional idea. Well,
why not stop a minute and get a little bag-
pipe music?" C Here W. Kluss playsb.
We've left the city behind us now: we're
heading straight for the Breedlove ranch.
But, as we say goodbye, we feel that the
graduates of january 1938 have made, and
may yet make some humble contribution to
the progress of their country.

Hear the steady sounding beat
Of the marching senior feet,
They are leaving with a tune
For their rainbow or their moon.
They will never say goodbye
For you're with them Franklin High,
And you never will depart
From their memories or their hearts.
Franklin, we leave you with regret.
Franklin, we never will forget.
We will keep our love for youg
We will keep our friendships true,
And we'll strive to play life's game
To be worthy of your name.
The doors of Franklin open wide-we leave
With myriad memories of her sheltering walls,
To her spirit and her gifts we'll ever cleave
When our footsteps are mere echoes in the
As a chrysalis protects within its fold
The homely worm-a clumsy, shapeless thing,
And fashions from that form a faery mold,
A butterfly with beauty on its wing,
So Franklin, too, has sheltered through the
Ideals that once were wavering, timid gleams
Were guarded from stupidity's chill blast,
With patient vigilance the litful beams
Were fanned into a steady glow at last.
Thus stoutly armed to enter life's keen fray
We leave dear Franklin, home of these short
With inner lights to guide us on our way
And the music of her teachings in our ears.
The simple prelude of our song is ended:

Our minds and forms, unmolded in their But still the name of Franklin will be blended

We've all had many happy days but work
we've had to dog
Our lives have been a steady climb to this

HISTORY OF SENIOR
As our days at Franklin draw to a close,
the voice of the past speaking to the voice
of the present across the sands of time, brings
to us a picture of those stirring times in '35
when we found ourselves confused 1OB's
feeling very insignificant and lost in the ma-
jestic halls of a school which, up until that
time, had reverberated with sounds of a junior
high only. We were destined to be the first
class to fulfill the six year plan at Franklin.
As sophomores we gave to james Hodgson
the honor of presiding as class president. He
was assisted by Peter Thurman, vice-presi-
dentg Robert Meek, secretary, and Donald
King, treasurer. That year was also marked
by a class assembly and a fantasy "The Troll
and the Troll Bridge." To top it off under
Elise Ainsworth and Patsy Shirmerls capable
direction we won the first song contest held
at Franklin, What a triumph that was!
During the next year, our ego aroused, we
held two class assemblies, and presented two
plays, "Three Pills in a Bottle" and "The
Importance of Being Earnest." We elected
Don King, president, joe Crawford, vice-
presidentg Thomas Brice, secretaryg Harlan
Rice, treasurer. Much to our chagrin we had
to lose the song contest by an altogether too
Our directors were Elise Ainsworth and
Betty Mae Sommer.
As seniors we elected Margaret Kikendall,
presidentg Bob Meek, vice-presidentg Don
King, secretary and Patricia Salter, treasurer.
A class assembly was held at which the play,
"A Matter of Choiceu was presented. We
gave proof of our high scholastic standing
with the induction of eleven of our fellow
classmen into Sophrosyne. They were Mar-
garet Kikendall, Barbara Ramsey, Eloise
Helftenstine, Patricia Salter, Donald Ross,
james Hodgson, Jeanne Rowe, Betty Rodgers,
Thomas Brice, Herbert Eckert, and Lucille
Hamrin. The principal activities in our senior
year such as class play, the song contest, etc.,
are scheduled too late in the school year to
be reported in this review. At the time this
is written our class, under directors Betty
Mae Sommer and Sherwood Craft and accom-
CLASS OF JUNE 1938
panist Lucile Hamrin, are practicing for the
song contest to be given in May.
We who entered Senior High the first year
of the new Franklin's existence believe that
we have had a part in establishing standards
and traditions, for it was partly through our
endeavor that the budget system was adopted
and has been such a success. We also further-
ed the introduction of a simplified annual, and
the appointment of pupils to serve six semes-
ters on the standing committees. The pupils
who represent our class on these committees
are: James Hodgson, Martha Washington
Room Committee, Don King, Budget Com-
mittee: Jeanne Rowe, Lyceum Assembly Com-
mittee, and james Ralston, Little Assembly
Our class has had'its share of talented mu-
sicians. In 1937 James Hodgson, piano, and
Don Kensinger, cello, won the district con-
In 1938 james Ralston and Eddie
won the District contests in voice and
respectively. Edwin Timm has been
cornet soloist for three years. Three
string quartet which won the district
contest are from our class: Carl Heinen, Don
Kensinger, and Eddie Horak.
Our class has made a large contribution
tof the successful football, basketball, and
track teams. Bill Currell, who has been out-
standing in football and basketball activities
for three years, was chosen for a forward
berth on the second all-state basketball team,
and was given honorable mention in football
by the Iowa Daily Press Association this
year. Mike Kanellis won honorable mention
in basketball and football from the same asso-
ciation and has proved his merit in track. Don
King, the Conference Indoor Pole Vault
champion, has been prominent in track for
two years. John Altfillisch and Joe Craw-
ford are letter winners in track and football,
Three years packed full of life. Our hopes
buoyantly raised to the future, we sadly leave
with memories of a school where friendships
were made which played an important part
in molding our characters and giving us the
background of knowledge which will guide us

Ladies and Gentlemen:
Once again the soothing strains of this
enraptured theme song, so familiar to the
hearts of us all, welcome us to the Twentieth
Annual Dinner of the Franklin Alumni Club.
We wish to acknowledge the courtesy of
John Oliver Altfillisch and Albert Brenna-
man, manufacturers of Scentless Onions, In-
corporated, for relinquishing the time usually
occupied by their program featuring Lloyd
Thomas and his weekly messages on "The
Onion as a Factor in the Abolishment of Poli-
To continue with our acknowledgments, we
wish to thank George Ludlow, manager of
the Lzicar House in the loop of Diagonal,
just forty minutes off No. 30, for the use of
the Florentine Room.
The class has just arisen in a body to re-
peat their high school slogan, which has been
the fundamental drive behind their illustrious
enterprises for twenty years-"Look before
Presiding graciously at the head of the
table sits Dr. Robert N. Smith, B. S., who
is oblivious of all else save his animated con-
versation with those three benevolent mis-
sionaries to the grass-skirt girls, Elise Ains-
worth, Ruth Baker, and Marilyn Bartholo-
mey. This conversation is being carried on
in his inimitable style taccompanied by ges-
turesl, over the heads of that noted war cor-
respondent, Joe "Scoop" Crawford, and Dr.
Hugh S. Dorrien, S. U. K., Professor of Poli-
tical Economics at' the "Rowe School for
Young Ladiesf' Also guiding the paths of
America's gems of femininity at this unim-
peachable establishment, is Miss Betty Rog-
ers, physical education instructress, who prac-
tices mental and moral, as well as p-hysical
uplift doctrines upon the girls.
Holding themselves aloof and obviously bor-
ed with the hullabaloo going on about them
are the much-married, jeweled, ermined di-
vorcee, Rae Blodgett-Kensinger-MacPart-
land-King, and Lorraine Shillig Stevens,
whose game-hunter husband, Verne tbring-
lem-back-alivej Stevens is prowling about
Cedar Lake Swamp, in the wilds of Iowa.
However, in a very few moments, merry
smiles will burst forth on the faces of our sour
sisters as they are entertained by a popular
swing tune, ably rendered by the famous
French Horn Quintet composed of Marjorie
Whiting, Marjorie Sullivan, Dorothy Speake,
Marcella Shipton, and Pauline Schmidt. As
the strains of this beauteous ballad till the
room, a bright green spotlight is trained up-
on its composers, the great song-writing team,
Busenbark, Helfenstine, and Conley, whose
doleful ditties have brought many a tear to
many an eye.
Keeping up a rapid-fire chatter with vari-
ous and sundry neighbors is Johnny "Jumbo"
Meek, high-pressure trainer and promoter for
Brawler Barlon, the noted canvas-back. When
asked to make a statement regarding the
HBrawler," Meek crawled into his shell and
stated that it was his policy to shun publicity.
just in time to repeat the class slogan, in
rushed air stewardesses Darlene Baker and
Jeanne Hruska, breathless and beaming as in
the old days, from a non-stop flight across
the continent. However, they were forced to
pace backward around the table during the
first four courses, to accustom themselves to
Frequent explosions of oratorical enthu-
siasm accompanied by fist-banging, issue from
Mike Kanellis' corner, where this famous, or
infamous, demagogue is expounding his polit-
ical radicalism to f'Lucky" Bill Gage, the
tobacco auctioneer, who intersperses trite
comments at intervals.
At a secluded table in the corner, sit several
of the members of New York's largest Beef
Trust-Marian Jeppeson, Helen Yuza, Mar-
cella Stepanek, and Elizabeth Priban.
Looking daring and devastating are those
well-dressed dowagers, just home from abroad,
the former Barbara Ramsey and Betty Ham-
ilton, always a step ahead of the styles, dis-
playing the newest pomegranate and puce
hair and lip shades. As their contribution
to the welfare of the masses, Barbara and
Betty deliver bi-monthly lectures on the abol-
ishment of the vote for women.
Observing the festivities with quiet pleas-
ure, a wise and kind smile upon his tanned
face, is cosmopolitan james Jensen, who for
ten years has observed the peoples of the
world as the traveling companion of his old
friend, Mr. Hallman. This lovely compan-
ionship is the flowering of a relationship begun
in his high school days.
Sitting side by side, their feet tapping with
contagious rhythm, is that universally-known
dance team, Craft and Debe. Staunchly re-
fusing to be swayed by modern terpsichorean
crazes, they interpret the minuet and the ga-
votte to appreciative audiences everywhere.
Cantering briskly up the stairs on a snort-
ing stallion is James Ralston, yodelling in the
old robust manner, which brings back fond
memories of that mellow, lilting voice whose
reverberations through the halls were wont
to lighten our burden of learning. When ask-
ed to favor us with a song, Jim smiled mod-
estly and stated that his vocal calisthenics
were reserved for his solitary hours with his
horse out on the prairie-it's the gypsy in
Reluctantly, we relate the unhappy history
behind the empty places in our midst. Un-
fortunate chance brought the Law into the
favorite night spot of Herbert Eckert, Rich-
ard Good, Edwin Hansen, Thomas Hughes,
Margaret Fortsch, and Eunice Bender. Al-
though they are now languishing behind bars,
their spirits are with us tonight.
To Franklin high we'll always our allegiance
We'll think of her as we go marching on our
To Franklin high's ideals we ever will be trueg
Be worthy and be loyal to the school in all
We will remember her in all she did for us,
Close by through thick and thing
With her behind us and urging on,
We're always sure to win.
Our golden memories will keep us all aglow,
As through the world we goq
Our hope will be in all we do,
Dear Franklin high to honor you.
We've a deep debt we must pay-
Pay to rugged, brave forebearers:
Abrahams who tore the way
Through the wild with all its terrors
For a sturdy race to root
Where menls strength and vision have met,
Pruned and grated Freedom's fruit-
We've a deep debt.
We ve a deep debt we must pay-
Pay to pioneers of learning:
Plato, Bacon fired the ray
Of the torch of boundless yearning
After mysteries of truth.
For those who with varied palette
Matured the fancies of our youth,
We've a deep debt.
We've a deep debt we must pay-
Pay to vision-inspired teachers:
Socrates and Christ who lay
Down their lives and changed the features
Of our world. For martyrs who
Split the grain of every onset
Till their selfless doctrines grew,
We've a deep debt.
James B. Hodgson.
FAREWELL WITH IVY
Time marches on, and we march away
From Franklin High and former play.
The world spreads before us, rich and fine,
But harder to crack than Massilon's line.
We take away the things we derive
And hope that our school will long survive,
But rightly express our farewell, we can't,
Therefore we leave this ivy plant.
Insignificant though it may be
We pray you to plant it that you may see
It grow and flourish and head for the sky,
And rouse in you that spirit of do or die,
That spirit of friendship, love, and obedience
All the virtues, all the ingredients
That make our school what it is today,
And the men and women you'll be some day.
Our tomorrows will soon send us on our ways,
But welll not forget our high school days-
We leave this ivy to you and to fate
To remember our class of thirty-eight.
