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 under it. 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 Drapela. 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, Thirty-two 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 Bishop-'sy 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 thenlj 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 Oakdale. 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- were class 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- ington room. 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. Thirty-three PROPHECY OF THE SENIOR CLASS OF JANUARY 1938 Time: About ten years. Place: The Olympic Stadium, Los Angeles, California. 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 games. 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 Kopecky. 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 Thirty-four 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 florist shop. 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 Cedar Rapidsll 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 f'Mirror." 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 to Chicago. 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. Music-Vernon Guttenfelder. Chorus 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. CLASS POEM VALE 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 halls. 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 years, 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: years In other fields the chorus we shall sing, Our minds and forms, unmolded in their But still the name of Franklin will be blended youth, With newer loves that future tasks may bring. And brought us from the vale of childish fears To the borderland of reason and of truth. Ilsegret Weber. THE IVY Through grade school days and Junior High and now through Senior too, We've all had many happy days but work we've had to dog Our lives have been a steady climb to this momentous day, When as young men and women, we reach a goal-post on life's way. This tiny thriving ivy plant, dear schoolmates An ivy, so tenacious, will hold to a crevice we give you. small, Please plant it by our Franklin walls where just so we all must do, then climb, as it all may see it do climbs high the wall. As we have done, we climbed and grew, now There will be many turnings, so has life we go our many ways, all will find, Some to reach for higher learning, some to So smiling we must follow these, love and bask in fortune's rays. honor all mankind.

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 close margin. 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 Committee. 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 tests. Horak violin, a star of the 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, respectively. 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 through life. Peter Thurman jean Rowe.

Orchestra: james Hodgs0n's f'Scintillating Swing Syncopatorsf' Harlan Rice, Marvin Talbott, Earl Pierson, Edwin Timm, William Emerson. 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- tical Corruption." 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 you Loeppfl 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 Forty-one 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 the altitude. 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 his soul. 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. Patricia Salter Don King. tCLASS SONGJ june-1938 FRANKLIN, FAREWELL To Franklin high we'll always our allegiance Pay 9 We'll think of her as we go marching on our Way z To Franklin high's ideals we ever will be trueg Be worthy and be loyal to the school in all we do.

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.

FAREWELL WITH IVY June-1938 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. -jim McPartland.
