History of the January Class of 1941
ln former years it was the custom to boast
that a class was the last or' next to the last
to go to Washington. We state now that we
never went to Washington, we never hoped
to go to Washington, and we never wanted
to go to Vilashington or any other school.
VVe came to Franklin when we were only
I2 years old, and at last we have grown big
enough to get out. The temperature was
io degrees below zero the day we came, thus
fulfilling the statement that it "would be a
cold day when we had to go to school at
Franklin." A year after we got here and were
fairly well acquainted with the layout, the
Board built on a new addition, thus assuring
us of plenty of room to expand.
On that January day in 1935 began the
history of the January Class of 1941. One
hundred odd - very odd - young men and
women - . Vile shivered in our boots and
shurlled eagerly through the snow up to the
very impressive building which was to be our
home for six years for more.j Once inside,
we were directed here and there and soon
became completely lost among several hun-
dred others, equally lost. Some of us were
never found, which rn ade little di fference. The
ninth graders were the ultimate in sophisti-
cation, however, we became ninth graders
after a few years, and they were not so
important, we soon learned. By then the
place was overrun with Ioth, Iith, and Iilfh
graders, a condition that has not yet been
corrected. lt is rumored that after we leave,
they will make a new class of l'lA,S and cor-
respondingly move up all the classes below.
This is based on habit and not on merit,
because there is no group worthy to take our
But we did become Ioth graders after a
time and thereby entitled to as little respect
as possible. ln token ofour new position, we
elected ollicers to represent us whenever we
needed representation. They were: Jack
D'Arcy, president, James Rogers, vice-
president, Catherine Bleakley, secretary,
and Kenneth Poole, treasurer.
Vile had a IOB class assembly. That is all
that should be said about it, but we will go
into some slight detail. Jack D,Arcy intro-
duced the officers, lVlr. Hallman told us ofthe
responsibilities of the class, mentioning that
we were positively the best IOB class ever
to go to Franklin, Betty ,lean Stephenson
played a piano solo, Rosemary Smythe gave
a reading, Ernestine Clendenning and Ray
Whiting provided Hawaiian music, Henry
Ristedt told about his trip abroad, the Ger-
man Band with James Rogers, Bob Puckett,
Bob Morris, and Jim lsreal played what
was called music. Soon after the program,
most of the participants went to other
schools where nothing was known of their
pai. VVe presume that they are happy and
We are indeed proud to relate that soon
after our first class assembly, We came
through with' flying colors in the song con-
test and captured -jifflz place. We could
have done worse, sixth for instance. VVe were
led in "My Sunshine" by Edythe Spencer,
and in "Old Folks at Home" by Jerry Clift.
VVith such songs and leaders we should have
won fourth place at least, but you know how
judges are about beginners.
The school benefited considerably bv
appointing to the standing committees such
able members of our class as: Art, ,lean
Vilhite, Budget, Audrey and Catherine
Bleakley, Business, Bill Harriman, Com-
monweal, Perry Vlloodward, Honor Assem-
bly, Dorothy Gibb, Lyceum, Bob Puckett,
Martha Washington, Ben Wlolverton, Social,
During this year, we rapidly became accus-
tomed to Mr. Deeds' pets - snakes, s iders,
mice and rats, which he carried with liim at
all times. Miss Rudd's 7th hour classes still
continue, also we remember the French we
learned in Miss Powell's Latin class, the
hour of rest that was Mr. Gorman's English
period. Oh yes, we learned and became
accustomed to many strange and unusual
things. Oddly enough, we did learn some-
thing - maybe a lot.
VVe returned to Franklin, healthy and
strong, as 1oA's in the fall of 1939, but a
semester of work in school soon restored us
to our usual state of walking ghosts. So few
of us survived that Miss Reynolds' home-
room was disbanded, leaving only four home-
rooms. The first order of business is always
the election of ollicers. Our president was
Robert Crabbs, vice-president, Dorothy
Gibb, secretary, Jean Daniels, treasurer,
Our IOA class assembly was the usual
striking success. Robert Crabbs introduced
the officers, the German Band, with Dick
Minshall replacing James Rogers, played,
Robert Deaver told us how to make bat-
teries, Vllinifred Hargrave played a violin
solo, and Patricia Robinson read, "Ole at
the Ball Game." The play, "The VVedding,',
was presented. None ofus seem to remember
anything about that play, which shows that
time heals all wounds. Anyway, we were too
shy to try out for parts.
lt was during this semester that the cele-
brated "Flunk Day" occurred. Remember
those "brave" seniors who went off for a
half holiday? Pffe went to school.
We continued in school without interrup-
tion as UB's with no blowing of trumpets or
shouting and cheering to mark the occasion.
The first thing we did was hold a Social Hour.
Oh, tragical Social Hour! Financially, it
was not a success. Bill Franey's Dukes of
Rhythm wanted their money, so several
classmates were driven into corners and
practically forced to volunteer enough to
pay expenses. -
As is usual in the spring, we competed in
the song contest. Guy Clark directed us in
"Mary, Don't You Weep" and Rosemary
Smythe in "Velia." Vile sang as we never
sang before, such beauty of expression was
truly remarkable l And then the big moment!
The judges walked out on the stage and the
first name read was ours - the 11'Bs! But
they always read sixth place first and first
place sixth. It was no doubt a mistake, but
we were last.
That was the year 1939 when six boys were
excused a week early to go to Boy's State
Camp at Camp Dodge, Des Moines. From
our class went John Brice, Dick Bates, Bob
Deaver, George Henry, Gerald Wachal, and
Other travelers of the year were Bryce
Fisher and Robert Puckett who went to
Iowa City with the play the "Knave of
Hearts" which was awarded highest super-
ior thanks to the able efforts of Miss Green.
To start 11A, we elected Kenneth Poole,
president, John Brice, vice-president, Dor-
othy Heimendahl, secretary, Dorothy Cline,
treasurer. A month after that our ofiicers
planned our class assembly which was prob-
ably a startling success.
Kenneth Poole introduced the ofiicers,
after he had been introduced by Robert
Crabbs. Jean Severa played a piano solo
and three of the boys from Boy's State
Camp, John Brice, Bob Deaver, and Dick
Bates, told us of their individual exper-
That was the year of the big wind. Mr.
Byers had us all debating about government
ownership of the railroads. As if it wasn't
bad enough to have to listen to financial
reports of all the major roads of the United
States, we had to sit by and watch the win-
ners of each class eat the candy bars left over
from Mr. Byers' lunch, which he gave as
prizes. Representing our class on the school
debating squad were Margaret Blaine and
Perry VVoodward. They didn't stop, but kept
on talking right into the next semester.
Proving that you can't silence a woman,
Margaret is still going strong.
Continuing into January, we suddenly
became proud, but not happy, SENTORS.
Vile attended the same school, with the same
teachers, same classes, same all around, but
there was a noticeable difference somewhere.
VVe knew now what we could and could not
get away with. But we kept on experiment-
ing anyway. Very shortly we elected to the
standing committees the following class
members: Art, Jean Daniels, Budget, Kath-
leen Victorineg Business, Dorothy Cline,
Commonweal, Margaret Blaine, Honor As-
sembly, Bob Crabbs, Lyceum, Joan Jeffrey,
Martha VVashington, James DeYarman,
Social, John Brice.
After a month in which we seniors were
merely seniors, we presented our class as-
sembly with Kenneth Poole presiding and
introducing such popular favorites as the
girls' sextet composed of Joan Jeffrey,
Dorothy Gibb, Dorothy Cline, Jean White,
Rosemary Smythe, and Jean Daniels, who
sang "Li'l Liza Jane" and "Down by the
Old Mill Stream." In a humorous reading,
Betty Houts portrayed the struggles of a
woman buying shoes. Bob Morris played a
trombone solo, accompanied by Betty Jean
Stephenson. The room had hardly been
aired out, when Dick Emerson arose and
delivered in stately style three poems writ-
ten by our poet of national fame, Patricia
Robinson. The play which followed, you all
undoubtedly remember. VVe of the unsus-
pecting audience turned a deep blushing red
as Bryce Fisher slowly did a strip-tease in
"Rich Man, Poor Man." Also of our class
were Bob Puckett, shiftless colored man of
little work, and Margaret Blaine.
Somewhere along the line, Mr. Kinch be-
came disgusted and found a new home room.
He now regrets the change - as who
Our contribution to the opera "lVlartha"
was Guy Clark, who played one of the lead-
ing parts as Sir Tristan. Perry Vlloodward
acted as a conceited, pompous Sheriff of
Richmond. The court ladies were Dorothy
Gibb, Bonna 'Geinen, Rosemary Smythe,
Edyth Spencer, and Jean Vilhite. Joan
Jeffrey was a farmer's wife, and the servant
men included Dick Emerson and Dick
Further in a musical way, we distinguished
ourselves in the song contest held in the
spring of 1940. Will anyone ever forget the
precious seconds that Edith Sanford and
ean Severa spent trying to convince the
less musically inclined pupils Cto say nothing
of the othersj that we could win the 1940

History of the June Class of 1941
Much as we hate the thought, we begin the
breath-taking history of our class with
apologies- apologies to Miss VViLwer and to
"Lei not the jzmiorr mock our mtyfu! mi!
ds zmpreterztiourly we outward pass
Nor roplzomorer hear with oz di.vdai1y'al smile
The .Shari and rimple czizmzls W our clam."
First of all, on a bright September morn,
1938, we arrived, halos shining and wings
clipped in preparation for the winter's hiber-
nation. As we floated gently into the audi-
torium, one could hear above the tumult the
half-hearted cheerfulness of Bob Smythe as
he greeted us and the trum et-like response
of Dick Chadima. Hardly had the thrill of
Snow Yvhite Nunnally and our 9A banquet
worn off when we were confronted by the
whis erirg campaign for class oiiicers and
finally decided on the following representa-
tives: president, Paul Loeppg Vice-president,
Jean Files, secretary, Ruth Hardimang and
treasurer, Westy Ralston.
Until brought to an abrupt, unnecessary
halt, for the next two weeks the entire
personnel of our class indulged in making
strange vacuum-like noises at the sight of
those chosen for standing committees. The
centers of our attention were: Maxine
Nowadzky, Martha Washington Room,
Dick Chadima, Budget, Elaine Nunnally,
Business, Ruth Knight, Commonwealg Bill
Rogers, Honor Assembly, and Bette Jo
Our class received new glory when Jean
Fahrney departed with Horace Heidt's
orchestra to the tune of "Music Maestro
Please" and "A Tisket a Tasket a Brown
and Yellow Basket." Along with all our
glory, however, came no end of shame. The
success of the football squad, which Dick
Pike graced with his presence, was inversely
proportion al to the upsweep hair style of the
more daring of the fair sex. We bowed
humbly to Wilson in the final game of the
As IOA,S we ventured for the first time
into the business world in s' onsoring a very
unsuccessful social hour. This failure was
somewhat forgotten, however, in the mad
rush out of class and into the Martha
Washington Room to see who could get in
the front row of the pictures for the " Key."
To add to our maternal pride in our basket-
ball star, namely Pete Schwinn, rehearsal
began for the annual sing under the able
direction of Ruth Hardiman and Etta Lee
Hicks. On the big day, we rose gallantly to
the occasion and our superb rendition of
"John Peel" and "Sweet Genevieve" as-
sured us of certain victory. "We was roblzedln
Miss Green took a superior rating at Iowa
City with the production "The Knave of
Hearts" whose cast included Jean Elder,
Ruth Hardiman, and Aletha Seltrecht.
A Htting finale to our sophomore year was
the all-city music festival given in the Coli-
seum and directed by Dr. Osbourne Mc-
Conathy. A near casualty was Mildred
Matteson seen swinging erilously from a
top balcony in time witlii Dale Howard's
The girls left school that June with tear-
stained faces, eagerly clutching annuals in
which were pictured the last true men that
Franklin ever graduated. The boys and
Jean Files left.
Well, one more step u that long - oh!
but long ladder of high sciiool education and
oninto I IB. We elected as our officers: Ruth
Knight, president, Dick Vogl, vice-presiden tg
Margaret Allen, secretary, and George
Owen, treasurer. VVe started out brilliantly
with Miss Grissel's homeroom coming
through with first place in the yearly budget
sale with, Cwould you believe it?j II3Z.
This also was the year the girls got the
yen for silver bracelets - you know, spoons!
VVe acquired some new members - Bert
Lyon, Jim Sweeney, Jim Jessu , A. C.
CJust Cornj McLain, and that curT -headed
individual with whom four boys fell in love
before they discovered it was a boy -
Johnnie Colman. VVe were ably represented
in debate by Dick Vogl and Clilford Free-
man. Dick Vogl also won public recognition
by receiving a superior rating in radio speak-
ing at Iowa City.
Our class assembly Cone ofthe better onesj
included on the program Bob Kimball and
Otto Kohl, playing a cornet and trombone
duet, John Vondracek, a clarinet solo,
Doris Jefferis, a piano solo, and one octet
singing two numbers. Jean Elder, Dorothy
Jane Nesper, Betty Ness, Ruth Hardiman
and Bonnie MacGregor represented our class
in the play, "The Dolls." t
The whole school cooperated in presenting
the opera, "Martha," which turned out a
big success. Margaret Allen had one of the
leading roles. The play, "Rich lVlan, Poor
Man," given superior rating at the Play
Festival at Iowa City, had in its cast Marcia
Kensinger, Elaine Kemper, and Jack Col-
After winning Hrsts at the music contest
at Franklin, Marcia Kensinger and Alan
Parker went on to Monticello to win Firsts
in cello and French horn respectively. At
the National Music Contest at St. Paul a
number of the instrumental pupils won
recognition. The clarinet trio of which John
Vondracek was a member won a hrst or
hrghly superror ratrng Marcra Kensrnger
and Damon Gardner, members of the strrng
quartet, got a second or superror ratrng

George Ross and Allen Singer had the next
important parts. Many others were in this

feel that every member of our class has done
his best to make Franklin a school of which
to be proud.
