"Strolled" because our class never does anything fast. We were happy, happy 7B's and everyone was so glad to be at Frank- lin. CHow young we were.J Harrington went with Griss that year and Ruth Ann Stucker ran down the halls 'cause she thought it was im- pressive. Then came 8th grade. All we can remember is Miss Schupert's lovely smile, as she initiated us into the mysteries of group singing! Those brainy, intellectual??? geniuses who got into Excellentia by the usual method were Morton Ballard, Ruth Bottorff, Barbara Butter- field, Alyce Mary Charima, Peggy Fehleisen, Don Hlubucek, Mary Thomas, and Beverly Lawrence. Remember in ninth grade, when Miss Walter's most attentive pupils were her cats? And those double seats! It was also in ninth grade that we were ini- tiated into the battlefield-410. Harrington went with Johnny Nichols that semester! In TOB we elected our first officers, those happy-go-lucky leaders were President, Morton Ballard, Vice President, Bill Barron, Secretary, Mary Lee Larson, Treasurer, Alyce Mary Chadima. Then came the song contest at which our golden voiced larks took first place. That is first, if you start at the wrong end. Pat Kaufman and Mary Ann Paulu were directors, and ac- companists were Mary Thomas and Chester Wetzel. ln 'lOth grade the following were chosen members of governing committees: Alyce Mary Chadima and Joan Mohn, Sportsmanship Com- mittee, Jim Grissel, Honor Assembly, Jeanne Hollands, Art, Barbara Butterfield, Budget, Don Hlubucek, Business Committee, Mary Thomas, Martha Washington Committee, and Mary Ann Paulu, Lyceum. Her 'l2A term was taken by Bob Manatt. This semester we find Harrington going with Germy! ln 'IOA we elected officers again. This time they were: President, Bill Barron, Vice Presi- dent, Mary Ann Paulu, Secretary, Margaret Stepanek, Treasurer, Alyce Mary Chadima. That fall we had the chance to become acquainted with our good friend Mr. Ewart through his untiring and able leadership as chairman of the Sportsmanship Committee. "Creatures of lmpulse" was given that semes- ter. Those talented creatures from our class who were included in the cast were: Alyce Mary Chadima, Ruth Bottorff, Ruth Ann Stucker, Pat Kaufman, Eleanor Faun, Jean Richardson, Dorothy Victorine, Margaret Stepanek, Joan Forty-two Mohn, Gene Sell, Charles Brammer, Bob Neff, and Beverly Lawrence. Charles Brammer, our own Frankie, took District and State Honors in 'llB. The next year he took National honors, that's as high as he can go. lEveryone knows he won't go this wayll Officers for that semester were: President, Jim Grissel, Vice President, George Dostal, Secretary, Mary Ann Paulu, Treasurer, Don Hlubucek. Our HB Song Contest was a failure. We lost our usual 6th place position, only to tie for 5th. Helen Costas and Ruth Ann Stucker directed while Mary Thomas was the accompa- nist. Say, what made our locker section so popu- lar that semester? Our fast track men that semester were Gene Sell, Bob Veley, and Jack Eggleston. Football letter winners were George Dostal, Jack Eggle- ston, Fred Gable, and Jim Grissel. Governing committees were elected in TTA and the victors were: Art, Chester Wetzel, Budget, Joanne Gray, Business, Bob Gifft, Honor, Fred Gable, Lyceum, Beverly Lawrence, Public Relations, Pat Kaufman, Sportsmanship, Malcolm Gunn, Martha Washington Room, Eugene Ohsman. None of us knew much about threading a needle, until the inspiring demonstrated lecture, given by that big, brawny, bashful, blond Hluby. Class officers for that semester were: Presi- dent, Fred Gable, Vice President, George Dos- tal, Secretary, Don Hlubucek, Treasurer, Bob Veley. Our 'l'lA Debate called for all-night sessions at the library. Argument may come easy for some people, but we learned it the hard way. We earnestly recommend that cafeteria service be installed in the library to furnish our weary debaters "food for thought." In our 'l2B Song Festival, we dropped another notch to 4th place. Three more years and we might have made first. Helen Costas and Charles Brammer directed, Mary Thomas and Chester Wetzel accompanied. Election of officers was again due. President was Don Hlubucek, Vice President, Bob Manatt, Secretary, Bill Barron, Treasurer, Bob Veley. By this time, several of us were in A Cappella warbling. These were: Ruth Bottorff, Charles Brammer, Bob Gifft, Mike Gunn, Beverly Law- rence, Bob Neff, Ruth Ann Stucker, Pat Gertsen, Dorothy Victorine, and Mary Thomas. The brains of our class who were inducted into Sophrosyne were: Barbara Butterfield, Jim Grissel, Beverly Lawrence, Bud Ohsman, Ruth Ann Stucker, and Chester Wetzel. This was the exciting semester when part of the Boys Octette got caught playing hookey. Those unfortunate boys from our class who went to the show instead of returning to school were: ,Bob Gifft, Charles Brammer, and Mike Gunn. Our class is indeed proud of our five class assemblies in which almost everyone took part. Although hard work was involved, it proved well worth the time spent. Well, well! Harrington had a new boy friend this semester, John Heefner! We had a grand ending to this semester in our Star Dust Senior Prom, which undoubtedly proved a success! At last l2A. Ahhhhhhh, the end is in sight! Of course, we had to elect officers again. This time they were: President, Bob Veley, Vice President, Fred Gable, Secretary, Beverly Law- rencep Treasurer, Barbara Butterfield. Well, we see Veley and Eggleston still out for track plus two new colleagues-Don Erusha and Jim Grissel. As you might know, George Dostal, Jack Eggleston, Jim Grissel, Bob Veley, and Fred Gable received letters in football again this semester. Fred Gable, our own tennis "champeen" won many honors that semester. This proves, accord- ing to Fred, that tennis can become a good "racket"! Ruth Bottorff, Pat Kaufman, and Mary Thomas achieved their goal by being inducted into Sophrosyne. This history wouldn't be complete if we didn't mention the T. A. C. and the fun they had at their progressive dance. Remember, boys??? Members of the T. A. C. were George Dostal, Bill Chadima, Don Erusha, Jack Eggleston, Fred Gable, Jim Grissell, Jim Humiston, Carl Hen- drickson, Don Hlubucek, Gene Sell, Bob Veley, Bob Watson, Doug West, and Bud Ohsman. Members of the National Athletic Honor So- ciety were Fred Gable, George Dostal, Jim Grissel, Bob Veley, and Doug West. Not to be outdone by any other class, we put out the Post ten times. Each time, it was more successful than the previous one. Why, our jokes even passed the censors-Yesssirreeee -flew right past!!! ' The operetta "Trial by Jury" was a great success, due largely to the fact that about three of our members were in it-of course, not as leads, but they played a huge part in the chorus, even if they didn't make most of the rehearsals. Finally, the big moment arrived! From the ranks of those who tried out for the Senior Play, those lucky, innocent l2A's who aspired to be John Barrymore or Katherine Cornell found it wasn't quite as easy as they expected. They were: Ruth Bottorff, Eleanor Faun, Peggy Fehleison, Bob Gifft, Jim Grissel, Carolyn Hav- ard, Bob Manatt, Joan Mohn, Jean Richardson, Margaret Stepanek, Ruth Ann Stucker. Here we pause to pay tribute to those mem- bers of our class who left to ioin the Armed Forces: Bill Barron, Gaylord Fanton, Jack Fagle, Robert Geeseman, Robert Regan, Robert Safely, James Vaverka. We are also proud to have on our list of graduates several others whose courses, interrupted by their years of service, have not been completed. They are: Earl Bender, David Deaver, Robert Ford, Bob Gepfert, Harold Littell, and Charles Musker. Today our own Bob Watson leaves for the Navy. ln conclusion, our class is proud to mention the part we have had in promoting some of the larger proiects of our school. We'll be eager to see the beauty of the grounds as a result of our tree planting, when we come back in ten years. We also bought War Savings Stamps for the memorial organ which we know will be a great addition to the assemblies and other programs in the auditorium. Thus, we hope our class will have left some- thing worthwhile to be remembered by all! The members of the History Committee are: Bob Gifft, Chairman Ruth Bottorff Alyce M. Chadima Fred Gable Joanne Gray Vernon Harriman Bob Nei? Ruth Ann Stucker I Forty-three Prophecy of the January Class of T946 Our graduating class of i946 decided to take a look into the future to see what would become of us. That notable genius of our class JIM GILLAM invented for us a plane that would not only take us ten years into the future, but also around the world in 20 minutes. Fasten your safety belts everyone because we're ready to take off. We now leave New York and the Statue of Liberty behind us as we speed toward London, England. Arriving there in a flash, we met two of our former classmates. JOAN MOHN, it seems, is now a cigarette girl in a London club where she sells "Ramsey's" exclusively. By the "London Times" we read that MIKE GUNN has made his debut as an oratorical speaker. Said Mike when we met him, "I shot off my mouth and went over with a bang." Finding no more of our classmates here we left London for Paris where, whom should we run into but BOB BUGENSTEIN who has taken his pen in hand and as a result has become second only to Petty and Varga. He calls his creations "Bugie's Beauties." His assistant is BUD OHSMAN who has a reputation for being good at figures. Continuing our iourney we found DON HLUBUCEK stationed in Berlin. He is still in the army after IO years. His statement is, "This situation isn't as easy to get out of as the others were." Also stationed in Berlin were EARL BENDER, ROBERT FORD, and CHARLES MUS- KER. It seems they are still crazy l??!I about the army. While getting our plane refueled we turned on our shortwave set. Miss BARBARA BUTTER- FIELD, the assistant director of our senior play, has now become the director of the "Theater of Romance." She always was interested in that type of work. At Vienna we dropped in to see PAT KAUF- MAN who is running a iewelry store. Her main interest lies in "Rings." We were iust leavinQ Pat's store when whom should we run into but MUGS STEPANEK. She seemed so bashful but then she always was a "Schei" little miss. PEGGY FEHLEISEN is now a buyer for a large chain store in Budapest. Of course this is nothing new for Peggy as she was always good at buying, bargaining, and SELL-ing. When asked if she was fond of SELL-ing, she replied to us, "Oh, VELEY, VELEY I am. Leaving Budapest and arriving in Africa, we met DOUG WEST. Douglas has just become poet laureate of Timbuctoo. His latest crea- tion is: I like myself, I think I'm grand, When I go to the show, I hold my hand, I put my arm around my waist, And when I get fresh, I slap my face! As we had to leave immediately for Cairo Forty-four we did not have time to travel into deepest Africa to see BOB MANATT and BOB WATSON, who are said to have started a million dollar business there. lt's something about selling lipstick to Ubangies. Before our take-off to Egypt we purchased a new book iust written by JUDITH ANDERSON entitled, "The Art of Seducing" lor was it re- ducing?I We had just finished reading the book when we arrived at Cairo. We were met at the airport by BILL CHADIMA, who is now the proprietor of Cairo's most exclusive night- club. Bill informed us that JIM VAVERKA has been frequenting his place almost every night. lt seems that Jim is still quite a SLIP-pery char- acter. In Bagdad, we met JIM GRISSEL who is now the owner of several theaters. Jim still wants to know why JO ANNE couldn't have been in our senior play. His reason seems to be that they could have saved money by putting her in the flower vase and had "Sweet Williams" Hearing that some of our friends were in Russia, we went slightly off our course and ar- rived there before we knew it. JEAN NASH, DOLORES THILLEN, VIRGINIA O'BRIEN, and VIOLA PACKINGHAM had lust taken over man- agement of the Moscow YMCA. When asked why, their only reply was, "Train them while they're young." We found out that RUTH ANNE STUCKER is running her own laundry in Peking, China. But then Ruthie was always good at squeezing wel blankets. Stopping again to refuel our plane we decided to do a little sight-seeing in China. After sending to the Hong Kong tourist agency for a guide, who should appear but PAT GERTSEN. We knew that we'd see all the sights as Pat knows her way around. At Tokyo, Japan, the S. S. United States was at anchor. BOB MICHALACEK is now a phar- macist in the navy so that makes MARY HOY- LAND a pharmacist's mate. As it was rather cool in Japan, we immedi- ately left for the Philippines. CHESTER WETZEL, who is now residing at Manila, has become the world's greatest dice-player. He always was an expert at flashing the ivories. MARY THOMAS and CAROLYN HAVARD have opened a men's apparel shop in Manila. It is called "The Snappy Chappies Gay Garbe Shoppe." Their models are those two well- known men-about-town QUENTIN LARSEN and DAVID DEAVER. Just before leaving Manila we received a wire from the United States. lt seems that CORNELIA POLASKY was nominated to be the first woman president. She at first refused but hastily accepted when informed that if elected she would become Commander- in-Chief of the army and navy. Her campaign slogan is, "Not a chicken in every pot, not a car in every garage, but a man for every woman!!" Our next stop was the Dutch East Indies and there in Borneo we found that JOAN GRAY and JEANNE HOLLANDS have started up a diner. They call it the "Cracker Box." lt's rather crumby, but it seats a thousand lof course only three at a timel. Also in Borneo we ran across JEAN RICHARDSON who has become a famous woman doctor. Funerals are now an everyday occurrence in Borneo. At Sidney, Australia, we were glad to see JACK EGGLESTON and DON ERUSHA who were sight-seeing. Jack and Don, living up to the tradition of the Marine Corps, have been dating heavily lately. You know a leather- neck! Also at Sidney our mail caught up with us. Among it was a "Chicago Tribune" in which we read that FRED GABLE had just been ac- claimed a champion of Chicago. We believe it was something about RACKETeering. On our way to Hawaii we stopped off at the Fiji Islands to see BOB NEFF. Bob is now chief butcher for the cannibals there. This doesn't surprise us for we all knew he was quite a cut- up. Arriving at last in Honolulu, we found that GERRY HARRINGTON had discovered a gold mine. Now what was his name???? Boarding our plane, we made the long trip to Fairbanks, Alaska, where JIM HUMISTON is now head of his own ice company. Bank- ruptcy seems to be just around the corner for poor Jim. After a short "CHAD" with him we found out it's all ice . . . I mean ALYCE. SID BARRON, who also lives in Alaska, is now in blissful matrimony. Says he, "This work is SELDON boring." I In Dawson, Canada, we found BEVERLY LAWRENCE and DOROTHY VICTORINE who are running in stiff competition to see who can grow the longest hair. MILDRED HARRIS is to be the judge and the prize is to be a free hair- cut at DUSTY DOSTAL'S drive-in barber shop. As Dusty's volume of business is quickly dimin- ishing, we promised to help him along by insert- ing this add free of charge. Quote, Wigs dry- cleaned and hair-cuts while you wait, unquote. Returning to the States, we landed at San Francisco and looked up BOB GIFFT. Bob is now happily married and receiving many little Gilfts. One of the people we bumped into in San Francisco was CARL HENDRICKSON. He has just completed a book that should prove stiff competition to Forever Amber. The title is "The Laughing Lobos" or "What Made Annie Run?" Looking through his book we found this little number: "Little JOE HUBBARD went to the cupboard To get his poor daughter a dress, But when he got there the cupboard was bare," Sorry, the teachers censored the rest. From there we went to Hollywood where CARLTON BRADLEY has just been given the male lead in one of the foremost Hollywood productions. He isn't surprised. He always know He was Franklin's gift to the fairer sex. Now on our way home we stopped at Denver, Colorado. JOAN LATTNER had just returned from Europe where she had won her nineteenth Olympic game. It wasn't a surprise to anyone. She always HAD that stride. At Denver we also saw MARILYN ANDERLE. She is now a housewife who is well-known for her cute say- ings. The Iatest is, "lt pays to work HARGER than the next fella. Then after awhile you can work a little HARGER everyday." Proceeding on our way to Cedar Rapids, we stopped at Omaha to see RUTH BOTTORFF. Ruth seems to be robbing the cradle, but it doesn't make any difference to us. lt's a LLOYD off our minds. We learned here in Omaha that Charles Atlas has Two new pro- teges. Yes, you guessed it-VERNON HARRI- MAN and CHARLES BRAMMER. At Des Moines we stopped for a snack and talked awhile to NORINE PACKINGHAM who is still just crazy about KOKES! Finally arriving home in Cedar Rapids, we landed at Franklin where we learned that HAROLD LITTELL has just moved by Van or did he Walker IVAN DE WALKERJ. We also heard that ELEANOR FAUN had just won Franklin's track meet. She turned out to be the fastest little DEER of our class. Regrettfully submitted: Jim Grissel, Chairman Barbara Butterfield Jack Eggleston Carl Hendrickson Beverly Lawrence Cornelia Polasky Jean Richardson Forty-five The Will of the January Class of T946 We, the class of January, I946, in order to disenherit our obsequence eccentricities, in order to insure education encephalopathy, pro- vide for common offence, to demote the general hell fare, and to secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and to posterity, do ordain and establish for our beneficiaries this to be our last Will and Testament.

Beverly Lawrence Forty-seven Forty-eight January Class Poem, 1946 The class of January '46 Was something rare indeed Scarcely a class in all the land Could equal or exceed The football games were free-for-alls Their basketball was too But let me tell the story now Of what the class did do. A member of the class was I And how could I forget How many pupils "iust got by"? And some are still there yet! Our spirit did run high you know We were the wildest bunch We had our fun in class and hall In spite of teachers' punch. Our junior year was full of icy But, horrid thought-debate Somehow we managed to get through In spite of dreamed-of fate. Class pictures were a headache sore They still don't look like us, Our features were too large or small And did we raise a fuss! Then came the dreaded I. Q. tests And formal things to do, That fall we knew the time had come Our fling was almost through. The banquet soon will give great glee We'II be the iitterbugs, We'II "truck on down" and "shag on through Will we tear up the rugs! The hottest thing in town right soon Will be the old gym floor And no reception 'fore or since Will be such fun galore. In later life l won't forget These caps and gowns we wear, The face of every classmate here Will then my mem'ry share. So if you wish that you were through Just please recall to mind, The best days of the life you live Are of the high school kind. The end of this gay tale is told The sad end soon we'Il meet, The class of '46 now leaves We'II never know defeat! Robt.

We found our way to our homerooms where we decoded our schedules only to find that because of frequent assem- blies, they were useless. We found many other surprises in our new environment. For example, our extreme youth did not always guarantee a first-shift ticket into Franklin's own Ptomaine Tunnel, otherwise known as the Cafeteria. By eighth grade we had stopped looking for the elevators and began to take notice in our classes. Following our hygiene teacher's example, we learned to be hygienic in 299 easy lessons. In our voice class we learned that we were society's potential menaces and women- aces. The great event of that year was a so- cial hour held in the auditorium. The general opinion was that it wasn't exactly a howling success. We at last made it into ninth grade and had that privilege of study?? halls. Since we were all ambitious to be our first class president we all voted for ourselves but found that Jim O'Rieley wrote with both his left and right hands. His able assistants were: Polly Green, vice-president: Rod Rust, secretary: Peter Pick- ford, treasurer. We were fascinated by a pair of green wedgies, but couldn't decide if they would tap- per not. Our daily cat-nip tea hour, to the tune of "The Lady of the Lake" was very en- joyable. Then came the Excellentia inductions. Those who were honored at the first ceremony were: Joan Brandt, Robert Duncan, Joe Ann Greene, Donald Krieg, Rosemary Murray, Clay Phillips, Flora Robinson, Ann Wadsworth and Phyllis Potter. Those who qualified for the 9A induc- tion were: Polly Green, Miriam Mead, Janice Spohn, Priscilla Drohman, Beverly Beach, Peter Pickford, Doris Peterson, Rosanne Klass and Elizabeth Wenger. Finding that being class president brought work as well as honor, we were not so anxious to hold that office when the 9A elections rolled around. We all voted for the person on our left, and since Phyllis Potter sat on the end, she had to vote for herself, thus becoming the popular choice. Her cabinet consisted of the following: Clay Phillips, vice-president, Bob Schieb, secretary, Jim Wilcox, treasurer. ln 10B the mathematicians of our class took geometry and learned that there are a-cute angles as well as curves. That semester the Fifty first appointments to governing committees were made. Those future house painters who made the art committee were Pete Pickford in 10B and Larry Carlson in 12B. Those re- sponsible for our varied Iyceum numbers were Clay Phillips, who became a member of the committee in llB and Beverly Beach in 'l2B. Those who were so stubborn they couldn't budget were Joan Brandt and Jim O'Rieley, both appointed in 'l0B. Those who promoted not only public relations were Richard and Robert Duncan in 'l0B, Rosemary Murray and Richard Holloway in l'lB and Miriam Mead in l2B. The good sportsmen on the committee of the same name were Bruce Sidlinger and John Skien. Those given the business were Jean Hartman, appointed in 'IOB and Joe Ann Greene, elected in i2B. Priscilla Drohman was appointed to the Martha Washington Room Committee in l0B, Rod Rust in 'ITB and Bob Miller in l2B. Those who planned our fre- quent honor assemblies were Phyllis Potter and Doris Peterson, committee members since 108, and Donna Whiting and Jack Burns, elected in 128. Those who showed the 7B's to the elevator and make a profit on locker dues for the Hospitality committee were Bill Buse, Herbert DeWees, Priscilla Drohman, Miriam Mead, Rosemary Murray, Jim O'Rieley, Clay Phillips, Flora Robinson, Janice Spohn, Polly Green, Doris Peterson, Jack Burns, Bess Bales, Rosanne Klass and Earl Bickel. We mustn't forget to mention our Latin Class and Bob Cassel with his pony that wasn't a horse. Our class officers that eventful semester were: Clay Phillips, president: Flora Robinson, vice president: Peter Pickford, secretary: Margaret Curray, treasurer. Those handsome, young, corn-fed hams who earned their points for Thespian were: Bill Buse, Kenneth Kohl, Jim O'Rieley, Clay Phillips, Flora Robinson, Angeline Thomas, and Herb Williams. Election time was again upon us in 'IOA and we chose: Rod Rust, president, John Skien, vice president, Polly Green, secretary, and Clay Phillips, treasurer. Then the doors of the song shop opened and we gave out with "Aloha Oe," directed by Vern Thompson and "The Kerry Dance" directed by Phyllis Potter at the song festival. Kathleen Stanley was our accompanist. We tied for fifth place. Because of de-feet we stumbled into llth grade. When election time came around in llB we found John Skien, president, Jim O'Rieley, vice president, Charles Sheehy, sec- retary: Charles Werner, treasurer. This year we got hooked on de-bait ldebatej. Holy Mackerel! Lt was then we learned that briefs are not always bathing suits. We can't forget G. A. A. Spelled back- words that's Agg - that's a yoke, son! The members were: Janet Barrigar, Joan Brandt, Joe Ann Greene, Jean Hartman, Lorraine Lane, Miriam Mead, Marcelene Meyers, Rosemary Murray, Donna Miller, Leila Mueller, Beverly Oldfield, Janice Spohn, Doris Williams, Jean- nine Williamson, Phyllis Potter, Flora Robinson and Bessie Rudzinski. The fellows who earned their letters and be- came T. A. C. members were: Marion Heins, Dick Holloway, Jim O'Rieley, Roger Peterson, Jim Phillips, Newell Pinch, Rod Rust, Charles Scott, Don Hamel, Reggie Lewis, Jim Nolan, Tom Nolan, Peter Pickford, Herb Williams and Charles Vermeersch. After considerable weeks of practicing we again entered- the song festival singing "The Year of Jubilo," directed by Clay Phillips and accompanied by Kathleen Stanley, "Smoke Gets In Your Eyes," directed by Phyllis Potter and accompanied by Joyce Crabbs and a cle- lightful round, "Come, Follow Follow" directed by Kathleen Stanley. This year we improved and were third place. Elections again crept up on us and we elected: Jim O'Rieley, president, Richard Hol- loway, vice-president, Charles Sheehy, secre- tary, Peter Pickford, treasurer. That semester the campaign for Boys' State was outstanding. We even found footprints on the ceiling. However, the whole campaign was in vain since Boys' State was cancelled because of the war. The ingenious cam- paigners were: Jim O'Rieley, Leo PieFfer, Clay Phillips, Peter Pickford, Newell Pinch, Duncan Ross, Rod Rust, Charles Scott, John Skien, and Herb Williams. That semester we found a new use for Ellis Park-our class picnic. Imagine. ln l2B Jim O'Rieley turned on the charm and again became our president. Clay Phillips was vice-president, Peter Pickford, secretary, and Jean Hartman, treasurer. Here's something from the Believe lt or Not Department.-We had our first big school dance which really was a lu-lu. Another amaz- ing innovation was girl cheer leaders. Two of them, Janice Spohn and Angeline Thomas, were from our class. Eleven members of our class were inducted into Sophrosyne in l2B. They were: Priscilla Drohman, Beverly Beach, Joan Brandt, Rose- mary Murray, James O'Rieley, John Skien, Flora Robinson, Barbara Rafferty, Phyllis Potter, Clay Phillips and Miriam Mead. 12A brought election time around again and for our last officers we chose: John Skien, president, Charles Vermeersch, vice-president, Flora Robinson, secretary, Miriam Mead, treas- urer. lt was in our last semester that we were saddened by the death of one of our best friends and teachers, Mr. Kinch. Our senior activities began early in 12A and reminded us that our Franklin life was really almost over. We realized that our high school experiences would always remain an important part of our lives. This is the first volume of our class history, a record of the six years we have spent to- gether. The remaining ll0 volumes will be written individually by the members of our class as we go out to live our own lives. May each volume be worthy of its author!

Signed, Charles Vermeersch Peter Pickford Newell Pinch Rodney Rust Charles Warner Barbara Dunshee Jeannine Williamson Prophecy of the June Class of 1946 Remember way back in 1946 when they established radar contact with the moon? We together with John L. Skien's personal instruc- tions on how to construct a Jet Stratoship with a high speed thermo throckle attached to the radio frequency of the uranium excelerator set oFf on our expedition to the moon to do what we could to relieve the housing shortage! Not realizing there was a slight error in the calculations as to the density of the esterial ether we were slightly off our beam, moon- beam, although we had followed his instruc- tions to the T. After the shock of the crash we salvaged what we could of the wreck and made a make- shift laboratory. And after 20 years of hard work we have completed repairs on our Jet Stratoship and have decided to attempt our return to the planet on which our beloved ivory-colored Alma Mater stands. Since Franklin would naturally be the hub- a-hub-a-hub of scientific knowledge and dis- covery, we adiust the dial on the high speed thermo throckle to take us to this great insti- tution. As we streak through the air our attention is attracted to a green haze, but no, it's a for- est. And what's that sign on the top of the gigantic rubber tree? Oh! it reads "Franklin Forest." I believe that immense rubber tree is growing where the main office used to be- for is that stretching it too far?l. Well it's pretty snappy, and that's what we need-a lot of pull. Look swinging from tree to tree-why it's Franklin's own Johnny Weismueller, Bob Miller, and who's that Sutton beneath him. Why it's Bernetta-she is checking oFf the list of uncles who have come to visit the ant colony. As we glide to a stop at the Franklin Ath- letic Field, which is now the site of the new municipal stadium, we discover a new coach at Franklin. It's Pete "Plasma and Intestines" Witwer whose slogan is-"Oh! come on boys we can beat 'em." We leave the athletic field and with Ellen Novy we board Bruce SidIinger's Bouncing Blimp which has taken over the old Via-D Ave- nue route. This is one of the few iobs Bruce could attain because of his emaciated stature. As Ellen, who is on her way to the Edgar Colony, drops in a slug, Bruce remarks sheep- ishly, "That ain't fare." We move on toward downtown and find Miss Kathleen Stanley land incidentally she's still a missl has taken over the Friendly Old Nursing Home on l9th and lst. She has changed it into a haven for all helpless but eligible bachelors. As we pass the Powder Puff Salon, the air current carries us down low enough to get a glimpse through the windows, where we see Bessie Rudzinski and Charlene Smothers. Seems they have had trouble with Charlene's Super Size Powder Puffs, for it Smothers too many customers. Also find Bessie Rudzinski has changed her name for professional reasons to iust plain Jane Rudzinski. Fifty-three As we continue our Journey, we see Weir Nelson has established his own market called Nelson's Moonshine Market, formerly Sunshine Market. Behind the meat counter Charlie Scott has taken over Bob Neff's old position and is now an expert at Packingham. Now we come to Coe, the second best edu- cational institute in the city, where we find those men about town-the Nolan twins, who have recently taken over the iob of two other outstanding twins, the Lambs. Jim is the able swimming coach-he always did have an apti- tude for Beaches. Tom Nolan is the track coach and has just written a new book for hurdlers entitled "My Ups and Downs." We see Phyllis Potter coming out of the attic of Greene Hall. Someone told her that was a sure way to get Dusty. As we near the downtown district we see swarms of black streak helicopters circling the loop. The Black Streak Helicopter Co. is owned and operated by Herb Williams whose motto is "We pick up anything with no questions asked." Some of his blackest streaks' are: Gwen Taylor, Ilene Warner, Jeannine Williamson, and Ann Nelson, who got their basic training in the C. A. P. C. Cthat stands for: come around and park, courtl. Upon alighting from Bruce's Blimp we are overcome by the immensity of an atomic lighted sign which reads: "Upsahls Parasols." Seems Marilyn has taken over the top 3 floors of the Roosevelt Hotel. She has started ci new fad having invented umbrellas with lipstick in the tip and a fiashlight in the tail. Jim lKikeJ Oberbroeckling, who always did have a craving for big business, has taken over a booth on the mezzanine floor. He specializes in diamonds, rubies, fine watches and outboard motors. As we stroll down 2nd street we notice WMT's tower which is now changed to WOLF, and managed by Clay Phillips and Jim O'Rielly. Their station identification is OOOOOO Cwolf cryj. We go into the studio where we witness a news broadcast with Clay as announcer and Jim as sound effects man. Flash-from Cheyene, Wyoming, we hear the latest results of the Rodeo. Bernard Severa won a close decision over Verne Thompson for being the West's best bull slinger. We hear also that Rosemary Murray has been elected the first woman governor of Boys' State. After 20 years of many soapbox ora- tions she finally reached her goal. On departing from the station we see on the bulletin board a notice that Bob "Spike" Veida's all girl orchestra will be on the air at eight. His featured artists, Beverly Oldfield, Elizabeth Wenger, and Jane Pazdera will do an exquisite renditioan of "You Are My Sun- shine" on the violin, viola, and oboe respec- tively. On emerging from the studio we see Pete Pickford scuffling along the gutter with his new Fifty-lour broom. He has iust obtained a position in a higher bracket for he has worked his way up the ladder from sewer cleaning. Through the clouds of dust, raised by the energetic Pete, we see a dim form and as the dust settles we see Phyllis Potter standing there, still trying to get Dusty. We notice that Fannie Farmer's is now called LEILA'S LOLLIPOPS. She always was a sweet kid. Next door we find in place of the Paramount Pharmacy Jim Phillips, Swedish Masseur. Roger Peterson comes out and upon our inquiry why Jim is called a Swedish Masseur, Roger replies: "Ah! Jim always was good at taking pains out of a neck." While talking to Roger he he has been out in California yes man for M.G.M. Seems is surely, surely, surely. Glancing up we see that Theater has been changed to informs us that employed as a all he can say the Paramount the Palace, and we find Newell Pinch has revived vaudeville with his production "Newell's Novelties," star- ring Angeline "Proxide" Thomas, the fiery torch singer of 1966. We find Doris Williams taking tickets for Safely's sake. As we hobby through the lobby our atten- tion is attracted by Rod Rust who is selling Lester-ine. On asking Rod why he is selling Lester-ine he replies: "Well, if you don't like the show you'll get a chokefiokej out of this. We also see Charles Sylvester Vermeersch running a tomato stand. He always was good at picking tomatoes. Our usherette, Katie Rhodes, leads us down the isle. Says Katie: "lf you don't know where to go-l'll tell you." The houselights dim and into the limelight steps Newell Pinch. As he concludes his ar- rangement of Holiday for Strings on the kettle- drums the applause is led by the whole front row which is composed of little Pinches with Perley teeth. We move out of the Theater and into the street where we find Shirley Vavroch and Charles strolling down the street hand in hand. Someone forgot to warn her fWernerJ. We find Charlie Sheehy head cop at "thoid and thoid." He has been with the force since he managed to meet the requirements of the department by gaining 20 pounds. He relates the tragic story of Big Dunc Ross, who imme- diately after graduation became a hermit. He once ventured out into the wide wicked world but was so shocked he could hardly creep back to his "Hut." As we walk up 3rd toward the railroad tracks we see Leo Peiffer. He has become a leader in the community for he is filling a position of great responsibility. We are indeed fortunate to see him perform his sole civic duty. With magnificent gesture he raises his hand, traffic stops, and the train rushes by. On the caboose we see our old pal John L. Skien, who is going to Washington to be hon- ored for inventing the silent doorbell. For this great achievement he will receive the Nobel prize fno-belll. Along with John is Bill Wright, who is also going to Washington to fill a high government position in which his purpose will be to revise the Bill of Rights. The train started with a ierk-then Janice got off. But she didn't care if Wright left because she knew that things would soon be all bright. fAlbright.J We cross the tracks and go by Greene Square where we hear a muffled sob. We see the pitiful form of Marianne Spangler. On asking her why she is crying she answers, "l've proposed to 75 men and have been turned down so many times l feel like a bed spread." But after talking to her we have inspired her with the "Spirit of '76." At the old Caramel Corn Shop we find Bar- bara Raffety and Donna Whiting doing a booming business with their new product, Kidd Corn, which is dehydrated pop corn fkind of cornyi. As we leave the shop we meet Dorothy Reed, who invites us to go with her to the Gazette to visit the love-lorn editor. On entering the building we find Dick Ryan, editor in chief, pondering over the latest edi- tion. It seems he hasn't yet found the right type. We follow Dorothy upstairs and open the door and find none other than our dear old chum Flora Robinson, love-lorn editor. Dorothy sobs out her sad story of how she is madly in love with Doris Peterson's husband. She in turn is in love with Dorothy's husband. This is not the eternal triangle but this is a hex of a gon fhexagoni. After our love-lorn editor has solved the pre- ceding perplexing problem, she takes up that of Roberta Nicholas who, concerned about her reputation, decided to write Flora. It seems that she changed her name to St. Nicholas so that she could secure a position sliding down chimneys on Xmas Eve. People were saying Roberta is a nice girl all the year round, but she sure gets dirty on Xmas. In a fit of deep concentration, Flora leans back in her chair, bites off the end of her cigar and falls out the window. fThat's Flora all over.D The shock of Flora's fall together with the depressing state of affairs on earth led us to make the decision that we prefer the rocks and craters and endless wastes of the moon to the joyless life of the Franklin Alumni.

Class Song of June 7946 Here at the door of tomorrow we stand, Parting from classmates and friends so grand. Six short years with work and fun, We'll treasure friendships and honors won. Fond teachers our future in view, Our success we'll owe all to you. Farewell Franklin, may you 'ere stand, The peer of all schools within our land. Words and Music by Kathleen Stanley Fifty-five Fiflyesix June Class Poems, i946 THE CHALLENGE OF NINETEEN FORTY-SIX The time has come for us to leave The halls of Franklin High. What words shall we of Forty-six lnscribe as our good-bye? For in these days 'tis hard to tell What attitude to take, How shall we write a fitting song When so much is at stake? The war is won, it's true, but yet Our problems just begin- The cynics who despise all good Are stirring up such din. When hearing them we ask ourselves: ls fair play out of style? And what of home and family ties Clean living, honest toil? Can friendship with one's fellow man, Respect for truth and right, Besides religion, strong and pure, Be passing from our sight? And are the blood and sweat and tears Our older brothers shed Spent in a hopeless cause for us? - Are they DlShonored dead? - They sleep, but yet they are not still, Lips silenced speak once more- They challenge us to carry on Our God-sent Freedoms, Four. We have the knowledge, power too, This challenge to fulfill. Will we take up the gauntlet now? We can, we must, we will! Jim O'Rieley We're leaving now, and somehow all has changed We shall return: the halls will hear again The echo of our steps, and maybe, low, "A Toast to Franklin," half-remembered strain. We'll halt before a door or desk or case, The old familiar seat in study hall, lnitials should remain there - not a trace Of occupancy -time has changed them all. We'll pick out names on trophies on the shelves And wonder if we ever were so small CWe felt so bigll as those who, while we watch As from afar, race classward down the hall. No one will see, and yet, within these bricks We've left our stamp - the class of 'forty-six. Rosanne Klass xi xx
