History of the Jonuory Closs of l942
Apparently, old man winter didn't realize
what a great day had come when a small, but
highly intellectual class, entered the halls of
Franklin in january of 236. It was this class
that was destined to be the greatest ever to
graduate from Franklin, in our opinion. Miss
Byers gave a short welcoming speech to the
class consisting of the boys on one side of the
Little Theater, the girls and Bob Mitchell on
Wearily, we plodded on our way through
Franklin, bowed to the floor with burden-
some, curricular activities which hindered the
cerebral development of our minds rather
than extended our intellectual prowess. At
last we reached the pinnacle of junior High,
Ninth Grade! It was here that we received
our first stunning blow, when Malcolm Scott
Hallman and his henchmen added to their
already growing realm by taking over the
lower grades. The New Deal subjected us to
years of misery, regret and longing because we
were deprived of the traditional 9A banquet.
Out of our supposedly scholarly number, only
nine wise apple-polishers attained the fruits
of their labor and were inducted into Excel-
lentia. They were: Jane Alexander, Ann
Hill, Doris jackson, Doris Hines, Miriam
Armstrong, Barbara Hird, Nadine Morse,
and, oh yes! a couple of the weaker sex-
Henry Haegg and Allen Taylor.
Leaving behind the traits of adolesence, we
passed into 10B. Needing Class officers we
elected Allen Taylor, president, Sterling Del-
zell, Vice-President, Ann Hill, Secretary and
Treasurer. Our representatives on standing
committees were: Budget, Sally Lubergerg
Business, Bob Mitchell, Commonweal, Bob
Jones, Honor Assembly, Miriam Armstrong,
Lyceum, Allen Taylor, Martha Washington,
Ann Hill. The Annual School Sing was next
on our list of triumphs. With great enthusi-
asm we shook the rafters with "Fairest Lord
jesus", led by Bob Mitchell, and f'Merry
Life", led by Ann Hill. We put on a glorious
performance, electrifying the audience, but it
seems the judges were prejudiced as we were
only beginners and gave us third!
With one semester of senior high gone into
history, we clamored into 10A-to the relief
of the lOB teachers. Then came another class
election, Little Caesar Taylor up for a sec-
ond term. Still in the running Sterling Delzell
dropped from Vice-President to Secretary-
Treasurer. Henry Haegg, a Dark Horse, came
out of the no-where to clinch the position of
Vice-President. This year we were represented
in the operetta "Martha" by such silver-toned
nightingales as: Annie-jean Houts, Don
Harper, Dick Rayburn and Phyllis Hook. It
was at this time that Marjorie Gray, Miriam
Armstrong, Barbara Hird, and Bob Mitchell
pioneered in the Baton Twirling group. 'I' hen
we should mention our second and Last Class
Assembly which was accompanied by f'boos"
and "hisses." Mr. Hallman, cast in the role
of Emily Post, gave a short lecture on our
manners, and behavior-the gist of which
was-no more Class Assemblies.
Undaunted by this sharp reprisal we ad-
vanced in 11B. At last Little Caesar Taylor
was dethroned from the presidency of our
class and Susan Brown took over the chores
as First Lady. Other new officers made their
appearance, Dick Rayburn as Vice-President,
Duane Emerson as Secretary and Treasurer.
The election of the latter was due to the
splendid cooperation of Mr. Sheelis Room. It
seems that crooked politics came into the pic-
ture-as members of that room stuffed the
Once more we entered the Annual School
Sing, but, sadly disheartened by the previous
year's results we decided it wasn't worth the
effort and came blazing in last. Frank Powers
had the distinction of being our first letter
winner in a class of intellects, earning his
letter for his work in track. Another warrior
cracked the ice and won a letter, this time
in cheering-leading. Duane Emerson was the
boy that came through.
Some of our number went into IIA, while
some of us stayed behind. Isn't it strange
that a class with such a high mentality should
have some that dropped by the roadside???P
Once again we went to the polls and for the
second successive time, our most ardent cam-
paigner, Allen Taylor, was defeated. Those
elected were: Bob jones, Presidentg Barbara
Hird, Vice-President, Jeanne Wandel, Secre-
tary and Treasurer. Our slashing, crashing,
dashing, bashing-tough football team came
through city play undefeated, and unscored
upon, and subsequently won the title of City
Champions. 'iBig Moose" Delzell was the
only letter winner from our class this semes-
ter. He won his letter in football.
Now, with smiling faces our class rolled
on into our senior year believing the hardest
was past. Little did we realize that we had
yet to encounter "Chesty Estbyv, the little
whirlwind who blew in from Minnesota. In
the spring of 1941 the song contest came
again. This time we improved. Mr. Estby said
we were now "Sophisticated" and "Blase"
while last time we had been a bunch of
ffDirty Reds" and 'fBolsheviks." Although,
joyful over money Won through bets on the
previous school sing, we proceeded to wager
once more and once more we won-our bets.
You guessed it! We took last, melodiously
singing "The Levy Songl' and "Londonarry
Aire" only a few bars off. We feel proud,
though, that the majority of the songbirds
ended at the same time!! !! Letter winners in
track were Frank Powers, a repeater, Duane
Emerson, and Herald Smith. During this
semester, we lost many of our most enterpris-
ing students to the senior class, namely, Doris
Hines, Barbara Hird, Esther Perley, Elaine
Lillick, Miriam Greenberg, and Mrs. Ray
Ingles-also Allan Singer and Bob jones.
However, our class was replenished by Craig
Webb and his associates. Stoiling Delzell
arose from the ranks to defeat the mighty
mite Allen Taylor in the semester campaign
for the class president. Dick Rayburn was
elected Vice-President and Doris jackson,
Secretary and Treasurer. The proud students
of our class who were inducted into Sophro-
syne were: Ann Hill, Jane Alexander, Allen
Taylor, Doris Hines, Annie jean Houts, Mir-
iam Armstrong, Doris jackson, Barbara An-
AT LAST!!! In the fall of 1941 we were
back at Franklin as 12A's. A year with a
hectic routine for everyone. The powers that
be, made himself heard and Mr. "Ichabod"
Sheel's homeroom was put under the eagle
eye of Miss Powell, After a few weeks she
conceded defeat and freedom was enjoyed by
all. We immediately elected class officers.
Finally, F. D. R. Taylor got his third term
one citizen of our class. Orville,
him girls, Lunning, after being
forced into it, won the Vice-presidency. Betty
Bachmann, was elected Secretary and Treas-
urer. Practice soon began regularly for the
cast of "Ever Since Eve", a comedy directed
by 'fSimon La Green" and student director
from Coe, Kenneth Roberts. We presented
this 'fdramall with "astounding" success. The
Thunderbolts lowered their standing this sea-
son by merely tying for the city champion-
ship. Letter winners, who distinguished them-
selves in our class were: Sterling Delzell,
Frank Powers, joooooooooonier Smith, Phil
Bramsen, Orville Lunning, and Dick Ray-
burn. Out of this group, Duane Emerson,
Sterling Delzell, and Dick Rayburn were in-
ducted into the National Athletic Honor So-
ciety. New members of Sophrosyne were:
Helen Libal and Henry Haegg.
Now that the history of this fall graduating
class of 1942 is about completed, we should
like to leave you with this short summary:
"Amid these winter storms and furies
We finally have come to the end of our
From all these studies our brains are
Our hearts are heavy, our eyes are
'fOur teachers have harried us for many a
Have left us downheartened and laden
To our dear friends of the lower grades
We hope our experiences will be of a
"We leave you our blessing, children dear
And wish you good luck for the coming
Now we've run out of space and we've
run out of rhyme
But, curse it all, we've run out of time! !
Prophecy of Jonuory Closs, l942
In the fireplace the glowing embers give a
feeling of warmth and comfort. Slumber has
overtaken the figure huddled in a chair and
he dreams of the tomorrow. Visioning himself
as a knight errant, he charges boldly forth to
conquer the world.
Joyful of his conquests, he awakes, and
with a startled thought of his class gradua-

We will sing as we travel along life's way.
Thanks to you, dear old school, for your
We will echo your praises throughout the
Come what may, we will never forget these
With their gladness and sadness and smiles
We'll always cherish the hours that we spend
And welll live them again in our memory.
So we leave you, dear Franklin, with shouts
We will miss you and all of your happy days,
Now we sadly will sing as we say Goodbye,
We will love you forever, Dear Franklin H igh.
Class Poem of January, 1942
They say that we have finished now,'
Our schoolwork all is done,
If they could only look ahead,
They'd see we've just begun.
Our schoolhouse now is life itself.
Its rules are stricter far,
Than all the regulations here
At Franklin ever are.
They say that we have closed our books,
But in reality
They're only open wider now,
And easier to see.
We're taking up the study now
Of happiness and strife.
We wave goodbye to Franklin High,
And shout Hello to Life.
And now the bell is ringing for
The class of forty two:
A great new generation, with
A mighty job to do.
Experience, our teacher now,
Has rung the new school bell,-
All the grades the future holds
Just time alone can tell.
And when the last report is made
To show the total sum,
W e'll find, on graduation day
Our school has just begun.

Closs History, June, l942
When we were tiny 7 Bls
Our days and nights were full of glee
Our mates were blythe and kind
No wonder we sometimes sigh
And dash the tear drops from our eye
To cast a look behind.
Do you realize, dear friends, that at the
sound of the gong it will have been 2,093
days, 9 hours, 41 minutes and 49 seconds
since our renowned class entered the arched
portals of Franklin School?
Ours was the first class in many years not
to cause the temporary cessation of ordinary
activities in order that the school might gaze
upon the incoming class and wonder---.
Among the many vivid scenes of those
days were the boys marching to the steady
rhythm of Mr. Kridlerls bouncing stick or
the more resounding ffwhackw of his holey
paddle. Miss Cornely's inspiring lectures on
Boulder Dam added greatly to our knowledge
of math in the earlier years. However we were
able to exist through the long years of sev-
enth and eighth grades and at last we en-
tered the exalted state of ninth graders.
We now interrupt this boredom to an-
nounce that because of chromium priorities
there will be no shiny spots in this dull mes-
sage. But after all we had no shiny spots in
those long years-except for the 5 o'clock Tea
at which time the girls danced with girls and
Miss Marousek took care of the boys. And
who will forget the added spice of f'The Three
Little Fishes"? By combining dramatical and
mathematical talent, a play, worthy of our
first Post mentionship, was directed by Miss
There being so many geniuses and sundry
freaks within our midst, the school deemed
it necessary to recognize such distinction.
Thereupon the Excellentia branch of the Na-
tional Junior Society was established. The
charter members were:
Joe Afflerbaugh Alice Berry
Gordon Dalsbo Maxine Durey
Tom Grayston Don Gray
Margaret Ann Paxton Mary jean Palmer
Bob Simitz Peggy Smythe
Richard Solvie Alice Mary Thompson
joan Kadavy Ruth Marson
And thus happily concluded that first his-
toric epoch in our rise to fame and fortune
under the late Miss Ruby Byers.
Three years have passed, three summers
with their length of three long win-
ters and again we hear
Dear Franklin calling us back for three
As time marches on so did this stubborn
band of future geniuses.
We had extended our might and secured the
distinction of being Sophomores. Our class
officers were: President, Don Gray, Vice-
President, Betty Sehman, Secretary-treasurer,
Geraldine Young. Extending our rapidly
growing power into the governing committees
the followed "advance agentsw were elected:
Carnegie Art-Arlo Bates
Honor Assembly-Tom Grayston
Martha Washington-Dick Layman
Our musical abilities were proven when
Richard Solvie and Ellen Myers made suc-
cessful a trio in the National Music Contest,
rating highly superior. joan Kadavy and Eldo
Mentzer were members of a string quarter
which rated superior. Due to the charm of
our two musical directors, Betty Wade and
Betty Swartzbaugh, we tied for second place
in the annual music sing.
In football we placed two outstanding mus-
cle-men, Bill Burger and Bill Sinaiko.
Of course the newly arrived addition from
McKinley, Yvonne Svoboda was outstand-
What next befell us then and there
We knew not Well-we never knew
We had not strength to stir or strive
But felt that we were still alive
For then came Bowne, Byerly and Byers.
Undaunted by the sudden jolt into the
higher realm of learning, we had for officers:
President ........ Mary jean Palmer
Vice President .... jim Barry
Secretary ........ Cynthia Daly
Treasurer ........ jim Holmes
Fired with the nrst authorized pep assem-
bly since Lindberg crossed the Atlantic, the
football team with the able help of Ralph
Doran, Bill Burger, Bill Sinaiko and Don
Gray won the city Football Championship.
In honor of the feat Jim Sibert and Walt
Merritt furnished the elbow grease to present
the first and only Post with pictures. The
squad picture was used.
Among the long winded debaters were Jim
Holmes and Tom Grayston.
A large number represented our class on
the City Championship track squad. Ralph
Doran secured high honors in basketball.
The James boys, we don't mean Frank and
Jesse but Barry and Holmes, robbed the rest
of the school of an opportunity to go to
Boys' State along with their confederate
Yvonne Svoboda and john Fisher helped
win a superior rating for the class play, "The
Flying Prince," in the Iowa City Festival.
We rated superior at Iowa City and at the
National Festival in Indiana.
In regard to the song contest of this year
we present this verse:
Again like the carol of a bird
The sweetest song ear ever heard
We warbled forth unto the sky
And won a second, although a tie.
Eldo Mentzer, Joan Kadavy, David Ring
and Ellen Myers won excellent ratings at the
state music contest and later at the National.
Ellen Myers with three lesser members of a
quartet won highly superior. Richard Solvie
rated superior as a clarinet soloist.
Thus quietly ended the eleventh grade that
had started with such a bang in that sixth
hour American History class with all its in-
cense, fire works, chewing gum and Don
At this time we pause for a joke. If we do
it, it gets censored. We doed it-it was.
After recovering from the mental strain of
thinking up that joke, we, the history com-
mittee, will now proceed to name our class
For 12B the officers were:
President ........ Gordon Dalsbo
Vice-President .... Bill Sinaiko
Secretary ........ Dick Ferguson
Treasurer ........ Alice Mary Thompson
The members of our class who achieved
the heights of G.A.A. were Ione Thompson,
Cynthia Daly, Pauline Davis, jane Kohl,
Betty Kutchera, Lucille Lash, Laura Martin,
Ellen Myers, Irene Paulu, Ruth Garber and
Our debate team came through with flying
colors. It included the following members
from our class: David Ring, David Berger,
Keith Deal and Norman Dake.
Again we shall try to secure your attention
with another joke. It is as follows-tough
luck. We lost that one to.
To continue-Ralph Doran, Bill Sinaiko,
Don Gray and honorary captain Bill Burger
shone in football again. Later in the season
Doran and Burger led the members of the
basketball squad. Outstanding track hopefuls
are Bob Miller, Ralph Doran, Don Gray,
Roland Roupe, Bill Burger, Leo Engler and
Dale Toms. Along with these brilliant stars
the scrubs present this poem-
We think that you shall never see
Scrubs as dutiful as we
For every year, for every sport
You may be sure that weill report
At last we pray, we hope at least
We'll be a tree, a scrub to cease.
The operetta, HTrial by jury" was pro-
duced with the followingmembers of our class
taking leads: Mary jean Palmer, Jim Kemp,
Ellis Lambertson and Bob Thomas.
Members chosen for Sophrosyne in 12B
Alice Mary Thompson
Mary Jean Palmer
While Miss Grissel was recovering from the
shock of receiving 400 pencils from her
mathematics class, she was relieved by the
Uamoozing but confoozingv. Incidently do
you girls remember those days of slacks? By
the by, overalls disappeared too.
12A opened with the usual type of class
election, which we violently contested and fol-
lowed by the strenuous campaign between
the clashing colors red and green. It ended
with the following class election-and we do
President ........ lim Holmes
Vice President .... Irene Paulu
Secretary H-.- .... junior Mikas
Treasurer ........ Dick Ferguson
The dramatic members of our class induct-
ed into Thespian Were:
Shirley Hopkinson placed second in the
competitive scholarship examinations given
by Coe College.
Since everything, even our history, has an
end, here it is.

June Class Song
Proudly we stand to honor dear Franklin
Pledging to cherish mem'ries within
Vowing to ever remember, to never forget
Spreading our wings we mount in the sky
Bidding adieu but never goodby
Vowing to ever remember, to never forget
Serving our country, taking our place
By word and action, we'll set the pace
And show our worth, Franklin high
