As dignified seniors we receive our diplomas.
Grasping these treasured and long-waited-for
diplomas, we find the incidents of the last four
years flashing through our minds . . .
In 1945 we thundered into the front hall of
Franklin High School as freshmen-but what
"green freshmen"l We felt our importance, but
much to our dismay we were only a drop in the
bucketg we found this true especially in Mr. and
Mrs. Dedman's algebra classes. The outstand-
ing event of our freshman year was, of course,
"Freshman Week." Shining upperclassmen's
shoes, relieving them of their burdensome books,
and jumping whenever the seniors spoke were
only a few of our many tasks. During our event-
ful year as greenhorns, Elsie' Locke was chosen
as a nominee for the F. F. A. Queen, and Nadene
Warf represented our class in the contest for
Football Queen. On graduation night Daly
Thompson, jr., received the freshman scholar-
The next fall, as sophomores, we were ready
for those long-talked-of subjects such as Caesar,
history, and "Willie" Shakespeare. But soon
we were heard to say, "Oh, I didn't know that!"
We had discovered these subjects were not
pleasant dreams, but horrible nightmares in-
stead, only to be quieted by hard work and late
hours. This year we elected our first class of-
ficers-Bobby T. Ladd, Huberta Hill, Mary
Lynch, and Claude Lynch. Betsy Church was
nominated for "Miss Franklin High," and
Barbara Howard was chosen as candidate for
Football. Queen. Carolyn Kinnard received the
sophomore scholarship medal. By this time
others were beginning to realize that "we" were
At last we were becoming important! We
climbed on up the ladder to become juniors.
Wle won the magazine drive with an overwhelm-
ing sum of money and decided that the juniors
must win everything. From there we proceeded
to get our Football Queen candidate, Mary
Lynch, elected, and Anita jordan, our candidate
for F. F. A. Queen, reigned over the Harvest
Ball. Electing officers for our junior year was
an important business, and the officers chosen-
Claude Lynch, Carolyn Kinnard, Martha Ann
Isaacs, and Morgan Lynch-led us successfully
through the strenuous year. Soon the main
event of our high school career rolled around-
"The junior-Senior Banquet and Prom." This
was the most successful ever-even the seniors
admitted that as they were shown the time of
their lives at "Clown Town." We won the con-
test for having the most mothers at the P.-T. A.
meetings during the year, and were rewarded
with a party. Honors were bestowed this year
upon several individuals of this astounding class.
Charlene Sawyer received the Four-Square
Medalg Daly Thompson, Jr., received the junior
scholarship medal, and Ruth Zane Dodd was
awarded the girls' athletic medal. It was due
to the untiring and ever-faithful efforts of Miss
Mfebb that we were able to do so many great
things, and we shall always be grateful to her
for her labors with us. The year was a hard
and trying one, but a happy one, too, and we
managed to continue in the struggle for our
hearts' desire-the title of seniors. .
At last! There we were-dignified seniors!
Our goal was almost reached. To start this
year off right we won the magazine drive and
enjoyed the reward of seventy pounds of choco-
late candy. Bobby T. Ladd, Ned Elliott, Daly
Thompson, Jr., and Betsy Church were chosen
to lead our class during this busy last year.
Naturally, we really enjoyed initiating the fresh-
men after waiting four years for this privilege.
Mary Lynch was elected Queen of the F. F. A.,
and reigned over the Barnwarmin' with Barbara
Little as senior attendant. The Queen of the
Gridiron was our own Mary Ruth Fagan. The
captain of the football team, Bobby T. Ladd,
was voted most valuable in this sport, and
Eugene Newcome was voted the most improved
lineman. Carolyn Kinnard was chosen by the
students and faculty as the D. A. R. Medalist.
and Daly Thompson, jr., was selected as johnny
All in all, it has been but a few brief, flying
years, and we have reached our goal. Yet
mingled with the joy of it is sadness also, be-
cause we must bid adieu to those with whom we
have worked and struggled.
Today we leave behind our love and apprecia-
tion to our beloved faculty for their untiring
efforts, patience, and guidance.
. . . These are the memories which flash
through our minds as we complete these event-
ful years, and the doors of Franklin High School

COACH AND CAPTAINS
Pictured above with Coach Gentry are Captain
Bobby T. Ladd and Alternate Captain Daly
Thompson, jr., who combined talents to pro-
duce much of the yardage gained during the
latter stages of the football season. Both boys
are Seniors and will be replaced next year by
two capable performers, Jack Caldwell and
SUMMARY OF THE SEASON

ing the 1948 season, they showed great progress
toward the end of the season. They climaxed
the football season by upsetting a strong Cum-
berland eleven I3-l2. At the annual football
banquet Bobby Ladd was named Most Valuable
Player and Eugene Newcome was honored as the
Most Improved Lineman.

The Franklin Rebels sailed to a very impres-
sive sea:,on's record ol' twelve wins and two losses.
'l'hcy also managed to be a runner-up in the
'l'hird District Tournament. Highlighting the
team were such stars as Bobby Ladd, 'l'homas
Lillard, and linimy Thwcatt who won district
honors during the tournament. Harry Hughes
and Daly 'l'hompson, were the remaining
starters and they also turned in many good
games. l.eon Boyd, B. Chester, XVash Herbert,
Marcer X'Villiams, and Murray X'Vitt proved to be
capable ol' taking over when called on and their
play during the season was of equally great help
in making possible the line record established by
