Class History As a history is a compound of facts and interpretation, we probably flatter ourselves by calling this a history. However I shall endeavor to put together a few facts concerning the class of "54" and I sincerely hope they will be of pleasure to every member of this class. On August 27, 1930, there was seen for the first time wandering about the campus of Franklin High School a rather uncouth group of Freshmen. For the First few weeks these Freshmen seemed quite uncertain as to what they should do but after being initiated by the Seniors, they soon felt quite at home. Much fun was made of us until we at last learned that one must "put away childish things" upon entering the dignified student body of High School. As Sophomores we began to realize our importance! For some unknown reason we gained the reputation of being the worst class in school. They told us we were uncontrolable and many times a Sophomore's name was discussed at faculty meeting both "pro" and "con" tbut mostly "con"t Our Junior year rolled around and at last our class settled down for some real work. Our conduct was considered the best we had given. The main feature for the year was the famous Junior- Snnior banquet given on Feb. 14, 1933. We hope you won't think us conceited when we say this was one of the best Junior-Senior banquets that Franklin High has ever witnessed. It might be well to mention also at this time that the Junior Girl's Basket Ball team won the banner in the Class Tournament. As Seniors the goals we set were to publish a school paper and an annual. And to institute a real freshman week. These have added much attraction to dear old Franklin High and we hope that the next class well be equally as enthusiastic in con- tinuing theml And now: lay this brief summary an augury be, For the glorious destines 1n the future you see or every single member of this class or '54' Graduating from Franklin--the school we adore! Class Prophecy The Place: Waldorf-Astoria Hotel, New York City, N. Y. I think the clerk has left the desk for a moment, so let's go over and see who are some of the guests registered.

Alma ilet me tell you, teacherli Williams has taken Zazu Pitts,place in the movies. Lena Mai Woodard is now the manager of the cosmetic department in one of New xorkts leading department stores. Experiehce is the best teacher, isn't it Lena'nai? Mary twon't cha mama let cha?iSmith is a secretary to--well we can't quite say her bossl name right here. Ona Lee Thompson is chief librarian at Carnegie Library. well, I guess if Mrs. Baugh could see her now, she'd be real proud of her. Marie yetway is a saleslady now for 9221 perfumes tcatch on:?i. Whitson Jennette, the famous aviator, returned yesterday from a record making world tour. Estelle Pate was disappointed in love so she's an old maid now and makes cookies for the children of the neighborhood.
