They serve with honor- a dream
To save - a victory to gain.
May Cod watch over these, our own,
And guide them home again.
To you, our boys, we proudly dedicate this yearbook. The event-
ful days which we had together will live forever in our memories.
Your response to the call of duty was swift, even though you knew it
meant leaving the joys of your young lives, for the hardships of the
battlefield. 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-

N recognition of nnremitting patience and
untiring efforts, we, the Class of '45, dedicate
this book to Mrs. Marguerite Chamberlain.
You have Woven into our character the true
meaning of fellowship and loyaltyg you have
injected in our system, a stimulant for higher
learningg and finally, you have zealously
guided us through our most trying years as
the Good Shepherd Watches over his sheep.
The true significance of your glowing at-
tributes can never be over-emphasized by the
Class of 715.

To the Class of 1945:
You have completed twelve years of a training which has
been designed to help you live a happy and useful life. 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
Best wishes for your future success.

IS FOR SENIGRS
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
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-
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
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.

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
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.
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-. . .

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!
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 . . .

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.
And Mac on Wall Street now is strutting, with his gold the market glutting
While Morin is a civil engineer.

Nestled snug 'mongst F ranklin's hills, Roger and Pete have woolen mills,
And Glendon makes the rounds as meter man.
Then there's Cilley the musician and Theresa the beautician
While Tracy still is out to get her man.

And Nelson's working on the railroad all the day.
There's Piela the stenographer, and Bennie the photographer,
With John's remedy for constipation guaranteed to pay.

Then I, in one swift, rapid motion, to kick him out-my only notion.
My Soul! he disappeared into thin air.

Alas! the scoundrel could not be seen anywhere.
As I stood there, dazed and gapping, on my back I felt a tapping,
One of my guests began laughingly to declare,
"George, why were you sitting by the door, mumbling and going through
As if talking to a man-who wasnit there.
With an excuse I fain remember, I turned to my guests within the chamber
Chatting excessively as I never had before.
Yet often in my solitude, I recollect this strangest feud,
With Harry whom I had ne'er seen before, or hope to see in spirit anymore.
Lost in silence--FOREVER MORE.

Christian names. His plan was to canvass the church in his vicinity and thereby
enrolled the members. After doing this he published them with the meaning
he made up according to the traits of these first ancestors.
Now it seems that it was a fair day, and quite a few went fishingg others Went
buggying in the country and the like, and so, till this day, those having question
marks after their names are the ones who were absent from the church on that

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.

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-
Shortly afterwards, the officers of the club had another brainstorm, and
presented us with a typical country entertainment which went under the title of
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.
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.

New and exciting things have occurred this year in thc newspaper club,
Mrs. Chamberlain and Miss Nolette being the advising and guiding lights in
putting out the school paper. 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?
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.

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.

Despite the War, and the diihculties it presents in obtaining films, the
Camera Club has Hourished this year.
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.
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.

The first of the teams staying
on the campus at the University
of New Hampshire, was the
Franklin Squad followed shortly
afterward by Littleton.
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

Exeter's Victory league champ-

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
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
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-

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
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

assisted by "Shorty" were ap-
preciated by the whole squad.

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-

F ranklin's blue and white clad girls, hockey team started the 1944 season
with great enthusiasm. Led by Co-Captains Norma Ioyce and Jean Astbury,
the team showed great Promise.
The seasonis schedule included games with the Alumni, Newport, New Lon-
don and two news teams never before Played by Franklin, Lebanon and Hanover.
In one of the most thrilling games of the season, at Lebanon, the Franklin
girls played a 3-3 tie with the fast Lebanon team. With only four minutes of
playing time remaining and Lebanon leading 3-2, the Franklin girls rushed the
goal to tie the score.
Undefeated for four straight seasons and claiming the Granite State
Championship, Coach Kyrkais successful team ended the season with four vic-
tories and two ties.
Among the seniors leaving Coach Kyrka this year are: Co-Captains Norma
Ioyce and lean Astbury, Dot Merrill, Helen Bailey, Norma Worden, Pauline
Kropp, Ieannette Roy and Manager Lillian Dumond. The senior hockey girls
will always cherish our thrill-packed hockey days and hope that many others
will enjoy this great sport. y

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
