To you, our boys, we proudly dedicate this yearbook. The event- ful days which we had together will live forever in our memories.

Each day, as new successes are reported, we glow with admiration, for we know you boys are among those who have made them possible. Your courage, tenacity and love of country, you have exemplified by devotion to the great task for which you have volun- tarily enlisted. Escficafion MRS.

The going has not always been smooth, the rewards for your efforts have not always been visible, and there have been times when everyone and everything seemed to be against you. You have managed not only to survive, but you have profited by your experiences and tackled the next job with new vigor and courage. The satisfactions thus obtained should prove invalu- able to you as long as you live. The faculty tried to help you as you acquired the tools necessary to work on life. Use these wisely and always keep looking for more. You now have only enough to get started. You will continue to find that your success or failure is in direct proportion to your effort, perseverance, and consideration of the welfare of others. For all of you the immediate future has only two major problems, Winning the War, and securing a lasting Peace. Each one of you will contribute in some way to their solution, and with the help of God you will not be faced with the same problems again. Best wishes for your future success. I. C.

Mlss CLAIRE CRETEAU IS FOR SENIGRS fpzaiicfsnfl Jiffassags Now that we are about to take our places among the people of the war-torn World, we are fully determined to make this world one in which all people may live in peace and happiness. Our determination is backed by twelve years of fine training, both mental and physical, which we have received in the schools of Franklin. The education that we have received will have a direct bearing on the decisions we will be called upon to make, when the issues of peace arise. We must be wise in making our decisions, for the great war in which we are now engaged, must never be repeated as it may mean the downfall of civiliza- tion. In school we have discussed some of the problems confront- ing the democratic people of the world and attempted to give in- telligent solutions. Looking ahead with utmost sincerity it may be seen that the world has a bright and hopeful future. We must have confidence in ourselves and faith in what is to come,- with these in our possession the cause for which We iight shall be secure. Some of us have already entered the great struggle for the preservation of our way of life - many of us Will be called before the end of the school year and others after graduation. We shall, Wherever we go, carry with us the democratic ideas of the American way and above all, we shall make sure that some day our sons, and all future generations will not have their lives in- terrupted by wa1'. May God be with us in this great task.

CILLEY In Septe1nbe1', the year nineteen hundred and forty-one, a class of young, eager boys and girls embarked upon a voyage which was to take them through four glorious years of work and fun. Now, four years later, We find these same boys and girls at the end of their journey with hearts and minds filled with joy- ous memories of days gone-but not forgotten. just to prove that they are not forgotten, or ever will be as long as this page remains in this book, we will attempt to lay bare the goings-on, in the past four years, of the best class ever-the Class of ,45! '41-'42 Good historians always begin at the beginning, so back We must go to that golden day in the fall of forty-one. There isn't a Senior alive today who doesn't remember that day and year when we gazed at the ship that was to sail us through a year of tedious and irksome work interluded with parties and fun. Soon after we boarded our ship, there came the important task of choosing our oHicers and we found an efficient team in Steve Weglarz as Mayor, Dot Merrill as Treasurer, and jean Courtemanche as City Clerk. At the second-term elec- tions, we found our leaders in the persons of George Barry, Robert McCarthy, and Normajean Joyce, and we all agree they did everything that we could ask. This year's travel, 011 the high seas of education was loaded with pleasant mem- ories of the formal party, which outside Graduation, was the highlight of the year. Graduation found us smiling, though a little tearful at the thought of having to leave our good little ship, which was really the smoothest-sailing of any we ever had. However, we left her, diploma in hand, to go on into a sum- mer that held so many vacation pleasures. ,42-'43 Back again-this time to a larger ship Where we received advanced training in our chosen courses of work. Our second year was in full swing when we had again to choose our leaders. The outcome of our voting was: President, George Barry, Vice-President, Steve VVeglarz, Secretary, jean Courtemancheg and Treasurer, Robert McCarthy. It is said that Pilgrim made Progress, and we can truthfully say that throughout this entire year Sophomores made Progress, thus making our position one of distinction. This yearis powerful seniors threw a Barn Dance, to which we flocked-one and all-to have about the best time of our training years. Following a lot of hard work, we again bade our ship adieu and left for a short summer vacation-a vacation that was to give us strength to come through the next year with flying colors. . nu-,ve -,-.f:,f7s..,,v-. . . 612115, cvbliifozy Q continuecf D '43-'44 As Juniors, we had veritably established our eminence. To guide us through this critical year, we chose Steve Weglarz as President, Nelson Daigneau as Vice-Presidentg Normajean Joyce as Secretary, and Remi Morin as Treasurer. With them as our leaders, how could we go wrong? At the Winter Carnival Ball, our own Ellen was crowned queen, and we all danced to our hearts' content in the pleasing decorative Valentine setting arranged by the committee and Mrs. Chamberlain. We won prestige in both the effort to work hard to obtain the greatest possible knowledge of our subject matter, and in our social activities. Many of our shipmates who had -been with us from the start were now in the armed services, and we were very proud of them indeed-proud of them in the enthusiasm they showed in Wanting to put an end to the horrible conflict that had begun the very year we began our journey. This year having been brought to a successful conclusion, we anxiously awaited the day when we would take the helm as Seniors! '44-'45 At last the time had come-as Seniors we reigned supreme. To hold our ship on its course, we chose Steve, George, Remi, and Robert again. What we would have done without them we dare not even dream. How hard we had to work this year to remain in the top brackets of the ship's Honor Roll, but we did it and kept our class from shame. Christmas trees, colored lights, and candles all aglow set the stage for the Senior Banquet, which will always persist in our memories as a never-to-be-forgotten event. Our stock soared higher when we walked away with the Winter Carnival and crowned our Mary queen. The Junior-Senior Prom was a gala aHair, and very colorful, too. Soft lights, mellow music, swishing skirts, happiness-all tell the story. Class Day will always en- dure in our memories as a prelude to Graduation. Yes, Graduation, the greatest event of them all, for it brought to a close the joyous days of our journey. That night was our last appearance as a class-a ship's company in blue caps and gowns, marching to receive the last record of our achievements during the four long- yet somehow short-years of our travels to the lands of learning. Now for the last time, to the good ship which carried us through so much, we must bid a sad good-bye and give it assurance that its memories will ever linger on . . .

Ufaia gofzffecy THE RAVE-ON fVVith apologies to E. A. Poe, Once upon an evening dreary, While friends and I were making merry, Over many a "reminisce" from memory's lore, While we sat there, generally gabbing, suddenly there came a tapping As of someone gently rapping, rapping at my chamber door. " 'Tis another guest," I muttered, rapping at my chamber door --Only this and nothing more. F linging then the door wide open-Harkl is this a stranger from Hoboken? For his countenance I'd vow I'd never seen before. And the garb which he was wearing showed he'd surely been ill-faring, Likewise the next four words he did outpour, "Refuge, refuge I imploref' --Nothing, nothing more. "Though thy face is now unshaven, still," I said, "l'll give thee haven Chastly grim and ancient craven wandering from the nightly shore, Tell me what thy lordly name is, and why thy presence at my door." Quoth the stranger very sadly, "Now, Iill do this for you gladly- I bring strange tales for you to harken if you dare. Here a smile his lips did carry, "Sir," he cried, "my name is Harry And I'm the little man who wasnit there! Into the future I've been seeing, if you will only act believing, I'll tell you of the lives your classmates have in store." So this stranger still beguiling, all my fancy into smiling Quickly I wheeled two cushioned chairs and placed them for us by the door With my curiosity burning, and my soul within me yearning To know of friends and classmates in my high school days of yore. "Tell me," cried I, "tell me moref, Then in tones hardly bombastic, he began his tale fantastic While I listened as I never had before. "Well, Steve is now a famous doctor, with pills and stuff inside his locker, Pauline Kropp is his assistant-oh what a dear.

MARY ELLEN NEWTON Our Student Council is made up of twelve studentsg four from each class. They meet under the skillful guidance of their advisor Mr. Burleigh. The accomplishments of this year are many, and although they are not all outstanding, each leads to greater improvement of the school. As in preceding years the Council has been busy aiding the War effort, with a bond rally and victory dance to their credit this year. Members in this organization represent the student body, and are placed in the council by the combined Wish of the faculty and fellow students. There- fore all problems that the students present are carefully discussed by the council as well as the faculty. IS FUR SOCIETIES win President . . GEORGE BARRY Vice President . ROGER ROBICHAUD Secretary . JOAN PIELA Treasurer . NORMA JOYCE The Swing Club, one of the students' most popular activities, has done a wonderful job of providing the social life in the school. They started off with a "bang" in the fall by giving us an exciting evening at their Friday the 13th dance. It is Hrmly believed by all, that the person who thought up the eerie "Chamber of Horrors" must have at least been "Franken- steinisv brother. Shortly afterwards, the officers of the club had another brainstorm, and presented us with a typical country entertainment which went under the title of "Barnyard-Boogiev. Not to be outdone by previous years, again they put on their thinking caps, and brought us one of the best winter Carnivals to date. The dance was excep- tional this year, with special accentuation on the coronation ceremony. The class of ,45 won the carnival cup for the second consecutive year and their candi- date, Mary Gerould, reigned as queen of the court. The ceremony itself was lovely, featuring fifteen ladies-in-waiting, two little flower girls and a remarkably funny court jester. Lfglu-ying ffonfinuaclj In close succession followed a piano concert by the famed William Hacker, and a prize speaking contest. The concert was a great success, enjoyed by all because of Mr. Hackeris ability to play anything from Bach to "Boogie-Woogiev. As for the oratorical contest, a loving cup was presented to the winner. All these are just a few highlights of the Swing Clubis activities. It is in- deed a fine organization, and all we can say is, "Keep up the good Workv. azgcianca President .

The club chose very capable oflicers, competitive try outs sifted the literary ability, and the paper rolled off the 'ipressesv once a month to thrill the students with gossip, sports, socials, humor and art. The staff rallied all sorts of material, and published the first edition with but one thing lacking, - a name! After unsuccessfully trying to pick one, the staff ran a contest, and "The Knapsackv was unanimously accepted. The prize for this was awarded to XVarren Barker. The best part of the paper seems to have been in Maurice Laljlanteis gossip column. He had a motto which the students took up readily: "Do unto others as they do unto youll, Need any more be said? 'zcunazfiai Under the accomplished guidance of Miss Sullivan, the Dramatics Club started the year with almost a complete membership of ugreeni' actors and actresses. This was no problem, however, because they all showed they had what it took, both in ability and enthusiasm, and, after learning the fundamentals of good stage conduct, the club put on three one-act plays. Each play was in itself worth seeing, and the students were all but rolling in the aisles. Not to be outdone by classes i11 previous years, the Dramatics Club spon- sored the animal school play. This year the play was 6'Saved by the Belle", a comedy which went over with huge success. The play was about a college girl whose uncle dies and leaves her a prize-fighter, who is also girl-shy! As the institution was for girls, the appearance of three men causes quite a disturbance. The cast of the play which was put on April 20, was: Mitzie Walsh, Jean Liden, Lulu Green, Norma Schwartz, Harriet Shaw, Patricia Bennett, Pudge Roberts, Norma 'xVorden, Mrs. Fish, .Ioan Piela, Bonnie Harris, Jean Courtemanche, Doris Carson, Louise Schmidt, Ginnie Ellis, Eileen Mercier, Hita Powers, Shirley Crane, XfVarren Sands, joseph Burleigh, Slugger O,Day, Robert Dorman, Jackie Clark, Iohn Courtemauche, Prompter, Pauline Kropp. Miss Sullivan certainly deserves much credit for training the students to act and talk easily in front of an audience.

MUSICAL NOTES Operating under a noticeable HIIHIIIPOWGIJ, shortage, the band has enjoyed a useful year, both to the school and the community. During the election cam- paign, the band was invited to play at a political rally in Bristol. Other ap- pearances include the traditional game between Franklin and Laconia in foot- ball, the annual school concert, Memorial Day services here and in Bristol, and the Firemen's Parade. Miss Moses, heading the music department, proved helpful in bringing out the talent from the group. This year about fifty girls and fifteen boys turned their interests in music to singing to make up the boys and girls, glee clubs. The main event in the year for these students was the school concert, i11 which the respective glee clubs really showed their talent and enthusiasm for music. Once a Week they rehearse and sing songs of all kinds from classic to boogie-Woogie. A selected group of six girls comprised a sextet that furnished entertainment f or several occasions, including programs for the VVomanls Club, D. A. R., Home for the Aged, and an assembly for the high school. During Ioan Piela,s absence from the sextct, Theresa Turcotte very efficiently substituted for her. At gradua- tion time the scxtct was altered so that there were six seniors composing it. These seniors did Well in upholding the reputation already set by the regular group. l G46-Q Prv.s-idcnt . . .

Their able supervisor, Mr. Cashman, manages to find time from his numer- ous duties to go scouting for interesting material concerned With this subject. Consequently he is able to deliver many fine lectures and demonstrations on the art of photography. Yes, it is indeed an art and unless one has studied this field he would never believe what a large conception of chemistry and physics is necessary for perfection in photography. As spring rolls around, and warmth once more spreads over the countryside the members have started applying their classroom knowledge to actual ex- perience. The films thus far developed show what a great improvement they have achieved through a Winteris study. Mrs. Griffin asked Glen Eaton if he remembered what happened when the human body was immersed in Water. KYes,,' replied Glen, "the telephone rings." Gob Robichaud: Do they have square dances at the canteens? Seaman Hebert: Oh, I guess most of them are on the level. Uanbasn Cams A new and interesting class that began this year, is the Canteen. All the senior girls that take economics have had the privilege of taking this interesting and useful subject. Miss Pellerin, home economics teacher, and Miss VVatkins, dietitian of the Franklin Hospital, have been their instructors. Practical experience in this field has been derived through serving refreshments at a few Red Cross meetings. l Front row, left to right: Miss Watkins, Irma Beane, Beatrice Fredette, Theresa Lavoie, Norma Joyce, Jacqueline Beaupre, Alice Hannan, Miss Pellerin.

Switching their defensive tac- tics in their first game with Exeter, Frank1in's hoopsters wiped out a 17-15 half time deficit, and went on to win a 43- 33 opening game from the Vic- tory league champions of the southeastern sector. Off with a 43-33 win over Exeter's Victory league champ- ions, and moving into the finals on a 40-25 verdict over Peter- borough's Monadnock league title holders, Franklin was never in serious danger of not winning its first tournament since 1928, when it registered its victory in Class A, turning back Berlin in the finals. In Class B, a brilliant Franklin machine, working with flawless precision, ran roughshod over a fighting but outplayed St. John's High of Concord to win its first championship in 17 years, and by a decisive 48-23 margin. The hottest hoopster in the championship encounters was Pete Shanelaris of Franklin High. Swishing points through the mesh hoop from all angles of the playing premises, he counted no less than 21 markers in his out- f-it's 48-23 win over St. John's of Concord. Nothing Franklin did in the finals was wrong, while St. John's was running into a maze of bad passes and hard luck on their shots. While Franklin's zone was almost impervious, the Con- cord parochial school's man-for- man was literally torn to shreds by the bewildering speed and ac- curate passing of the victors. After being assigned to Hetzel Hall tPretzel Hall? the place where the Franklin team was to stay, Coach Barker divided the team into groups of two and they were assigned to a room. Thursday morning some of the squad awoke to find that during the night some Franklin boys tsqueakie, Rollins, Pepler, Soke and Lemirel had dropped in to pay a visit and decided to stay. "J. P." McCarthy went right along with the team. His com- pany was enjoyed by all, al- though by bringing his cards iand luckl he took some S33 away from the team. He's a card shark. Though not confirmed, some reliable sources have reported that Frank Mead has been cor- responding with "Sneadie Eadie". A very good friend dropped in at Durham to see the team play in the finals. Yes, it was for- mer Coach, Dick Eustis, who has donned the Navy blues. He had many interesting incidents to tell us, which we enjoyed listening to very much, but his main rea- son for "dropping in" was to see 'this boys" play once more. The playing ability displayed by the squad in the finals fascinated our former coach and it gave him much satisfaction to see the team which he had coached win the championship. Saturday morning at the low- er end of the hall, there was some commotion and after all noise had ceased, "Mac" was picking himself off the fioor after being yanked out of bed by the "Ward I Boys". The services of "Henk" ably assisted by "Shorty" were ap- preciated by the whole squad. CFrom The Journal-Transcript! F. H. S. scored a total of 131 points in three games and then Coach Barker had to send in his second team to hold the score down in the final game.

The Golden Tornado Football Team, under the able guidance of their new mentor, G. Colby Barker, finished a very successful season with four wins against three losses. After being set back by three of the strongest teams in the State, our beloved cohorts ran roughsliod over their last four opponents, including their long time rival, Laconia High. The Franklin Club has now made it two straight over their red and white clad rivals, and hope to continue on the victory trail with a host of future victories. The football season of 1944 which gave us so many thrilling and exciting moments, will always live in our hearts, along with the players who made the game what it is. Coach Barker will lose the following players, either by graduation, or to the armed services: Co-Captains George Barry and Roger Robichaud, Gordon Sargent, Armand Hebert, Peter Shanelaris, Richard Crowley, Edward Plizga, Leroy LaFrance, and Melvin Piper. Although the loss of these players will greatly handicap Coach Barkeris team this coming fall, we know that Coach himself will make good in whatever he undertakes. So to you, Coach, and your football eleven of '45, we sincerely wish a very suc- cessful season.

For the first time in Hve years the Franklin High girls were given the op- portunity to resume interscholastic basketball. The schedule was limited how- ever, but the games played proved that the girls are anxious to make basketball one of the leading activities for Franklin High. Starting With a squad of about forty girls, Coach Kyrka found it difficult to select the outstanding players and not until several practices Were completed was it possible to eliminate some of the girls. By an unanimous vote, jean Ast- bury was elected captain and Patricia Cole, manager. With the exception of one or two players the team consisted of the same girls that had played on the successful hockey team. Anxious for a game and with spirits high, the team started their schedule with a Win at Penacook. They had to fight for every point, for the Penacook lassies proved to have a very scrappy outfit. The game with the powerful St. Iosephis team of Manchester Was a thriller and although the Franklin girls put up a stubborn iight they had to concede the game. The return game With Penacook, and the benefit game with Scott 81 Williams were easy Wins for Franklin. Later in the season the girls defeated an Alumni team composed of former Franklin stars.
