The friendships we have made, Will live and never fade, The joys we've shared are memories sweet and dear. And though we may depart, To travel far apart, We won't forget the days that were lived here. So with mingled joy and sadness, Every voice will rise in song, To bid farewell forever, As we now move along, -----Barbara Kelley 4 F A C U L T MK JOHN BALL State Teachers College, Cort- land, New York, B.

From his early school days at St. Mary's up to his last days at Franklin High, "Mer" was indeed a friend to all. His chiefinterest was in sports and much of his time was spent at the Franklin Recreation Center where he partici- pated in baseball, basketball and ping-pong. His favorite sport. however, was always basketball. "Mer's" happiest clay came when, in Boston, he watched his special team, the Boston Red Sox, score a thrilling vic- tor . Isilis sudden and untimely death stunned everyone who had known and loved him. Yet the memory of his smiling face and sparkling personality shall live on in our hearts, always --an everlasting tribute to Ronnie Mercier. "Death is in such strange contradiction to life that it is no matter for wonder that we recoil from it, and turn to remembrances, and find rec- ompensein perceiving that those we have loved live in our memories as intensely as if they were still before our eyes." 10 S .

To you, Frank, our photographer, who has con- MRS. PICKESS To you, Mrs. Pickess, who has helped us through- out our Senior year, not only as a wonderful advisor, but as a friend, we give our most sincere thanks. MR. POBLENZ tributed countless ideas, so much help, and has kept us happy with your wonderful sense of humor, we are indeed grateful. MR, WINSOR Our thanks to you, Mr. Winsor, who has overlook- ed so many little mistakes, helped us struggle with our material and has given us much valuable advice. We know that through your tireless efforts, we the Class of 1955 will have the best vearhnok ever. 29 OUR KEY TO SUCCESS Lowly Freshmen On that eventful September morning in the Fall of 1951, eventful because at last we were Freshmen, the Class of '55 poured into the crowded sunny auditorium that we were soon to know and love so well. Mixed with our eager- ness and anticipation that day were many things -- awe, skepticism, nervous- ness--3 for this was the beginning of a new life, entirely different from any- thing we had ever known before. We soon became vitally concerned with politics -- class elections that is. We watched the upper classmen campaign and when it came our turn we put everything we had into the election of our first officers. Our president for that year was Dick Filliong Vice-president, Betty Lou Princeg Secretary, Maggie Robichaudg and Treasurer, Armand Chartier. Miss Dolloff was our class advisor. Who could forget those Civic classes ? We all complained about those tremendous projects, yet it was fun, too, and I'm sure we learned more than we intended. No one who lived through it, will ever forget our Initiation . . . Boys shirts and overalls, complete with pipe and rag curlers adorned the girls, while ladies' skirts and blouses, with high-heels and make-up further enhanced the beauty of the boys. And, of course, adding to the "pleasure" of the occasion, for the Seniors at least, was the never-to-be-forgotten "Tunnel of Horror." Excitement rode high as we planned our first hayride and then our first dance, the Freshmen Frolic. With January came the Winter Carnival and it didn't really matter that point-wise we came in last in the sports competition. Maggie Robichaud was chosen as our class queen and the Carnival Ball was a splendid event. Soon it was Spring and time for class trips. We went to Newfound Lake. Graduation made us all realize how quickly the year had flown and how soon we would be Sophomores.

It was a wonderful feeling, for at last the goal that we had been working toward for three years, hadbeen reached. We were Seniors! Yet now it was different, for we knew that this was our last September here in this school, and inwardly we felt a little saddened. Ahead was much to be done and many responsibilities. The whole school was watching us, relying on us, and now, as never before, we had to do our best. Class elections were exciting and tense, with all candidates having heavy support and everyone breathlessly awaiting the outcome. Then, at last, came the news that our elected leaders for the year were: President, Wilbur Robergeg Vice-president, Britta Karlbergp Secretary, Viola Huntoon: and Treasurer, Cecile Aube, with Mrs. Pickess as advisor. Our first big activity as Seniors was the initiation of the poor, new Freshmen. As the theme for Initiation we chose "Feudin' and Fightin'," the idea being a so-called "feud" between the Seniors. The Freshmen didn't have a chance and the Seniors without difficulty maintained the upper hand and won the "feud". The Yearbook staff was chosen with Maggie Robichaud as Editor-in-Chief and Betty Lou Prince as Assistant Edi- tor. Graduation pictures soon became the main topic of conversation. Many of us began to think seriously of our future and make plans for it -- for those days when we'd no longer belong here. But we knew that no matter where we went from here on or what we became in life, there wasn't one of us in the Class of '55 who would ever forget F. H. S. and the experiences, both happy and sad, that were shared here. The memory of our school will always live in our hearts and guide us as we go on to a new and different life, which had its early shape designed within these walls.

STUDENT GOVERNMENT Franklin High has been a happier and friendlier place because of Student Government. The organization is made up of representatives of all four classes and handles any problems of the students that may arise. Its outstanding project was the direction of the Winter Carnival, an event which created spirit among all of the classes. We all remember the Carnival Ball as a beautiful and inspiring event. This representative body had certainly been the backbone of Franklin High School. 46 ALPHA AND BETA HI-Y CLUBS Both the Alpha and Beta Hi-Y clubs had a very successful year. The two clubs took part in many activities. The first of these was the Dartmouth-Holy Cross Football game. Very few of the members were able to attend, but those that did had a "terrific" time. Another good time had by all was our annual splash-party held at the Manchester Y. M. C. A. Our meetings, discussions with Mr. Besserer, rallys, and social get to- gethers, made our last and final year of high school more enjoyable. Our advisors, Miss Dolloff and Mr. Harris were always on hand to help us in every way possible. V? use SITTING: A. Buczynsci, A. Lyon, B. Twombly, M. Kloss. STANDING: E. Longfellow, G. Elliott, M.

DRAMATICS CLUB P Miss Clark MF- HZUCOX This has been one of the busiest years for our Dramatics Club. They have put on five productions which were greatly enjoyed by all. Our Dramatics Club is one of the largest clubs in the school. This is one club in which everyone has a major job. There are committees for various talents: prop. committee, stage committee, make-up committee, ticket committee and parts for many actors and actresses. This year we are sending Elaine Cushing, Carol Zak, Jane Smith and Kenny Garand to the State Festival at which they 'will present "The Strange Road". The Directors of our club are Nina E.

This group is made up of two representatives from each class and Student Government. Our thanks to the Assembly Committee and its advisor, Miss Clark, for mak- ing this Senior year a happier one because of their efforts. 9' S' Siggort C I ' E g 53 4 25 Q iff ,uk K H Q 1 "' ' fam , .

Coaches Knight and Brough molded a group of inexperienced boys into a team which will be successful in the years to come. Although they were outclassed and outplayed by most of their opponents this year, the Tornado squad was one we all were proud of. Even in the face of in- surmountable odds they never gave up, and they held their heads high even in defeat. Senior Co-captains, Ronnie Robichaud and Willie Roberge were nominated to play in the Maple Sugar Bowl Shrine Game.

JV's came through last season with a better than average rec- ord - nine wins and eight losses. They were a scrappy team who played hard in every game and were never outclassed. The Junior Tornadoes started and ended the season very poorly. They lost four of their first six games under Coach Gourley, then went on a seven game winning streak. They closed the season by losing their final three games. Coach Gourley was with us for the first part of the season, but was trans- ferred to Concord. Coach Brough took the team for the remainder of the season.

S. Basketball team suffered an off season and ended with a disap- pointing record of four wins and twelve losses. The season wasn't without its thrills. The game when the Tornadoes beat Towle by one point in the final two seconds, the tremendous one point win over highly touted Bristol, and the game with the Penacook Indians when the Class B leaders had to go into overtime to win, are examples of the thrills that were provided. In sipet of the poor record the team had great spirit and never gave in. The team, made up of Sophomores, Juniors, and only two Seniors-Paul Colby and Ronnie Robichaud, improved steadily throughout the season. Coach Henley's careful guidance was largely responsible for this improvement, and we believe that in the near future the Golden Tornadoes will be the team to look out for.

SENIOR ACTIVITIES Initiation Who could ever forget the famous "feud" that shook the walls of Franklin High not so long ago and sent poor freshmen scurrying for cover? Of course, we're talking about Initiation. In their unearthly attire and hideous make-up. the newcomers bowed humbly before all seniors, who took full advantage of the occasion to wield their com- plete authority. But, it was all in fun and the evening provided still more hilarity. Masters-of-ceremonies,Bruce Garand and Dave Watson, were in fullcharacter as Kentucky mountaineers, complete with moun- tain dialect and dress. Some of the freshmen chased each other around and around the gymg others carried water by teaspoonfuls to the top of a stepladdet and still others, who were blindfolded, ate "worms". Cameras flashed everywhere,chaos and confusion reigned, and fun was the order of the occasion. Halloween Dance The next Senior event was the informal Halloween Dance which washeld inthe gym with dancing with the music of records. The dec- orations, in keeping with the season,were pumpkins festively scattered among cornstalks, a foreboding scarecrow, and witches riding high on broomsticks to add to the eerie atmosphere. A gay spirit prevailed and our Halloween Dance was a success. Senior Vs. Faculty Game Tuesday night, December 7, marked the exciting basketball game betweenthe seniors and the faculty. The boys played the first half of the game and the girls played during the third quarter. There was a lot of clowning, especially by the teachersg but everyone played hard and when out boys brought the final score up to just one point below that of the faculty, we were all very proud of them. EI Candelabra "E1 Candelabra" wasone of the most unique themes yet devised for one of our dances. Blue floodlights created a purplish haze which en- veloped the dance hall, lending a striking contrast to the darkened stage vfherealightedcandelabra flickered on the piano and sent shad- ows dancingagainst the background. Liberace, in the person of Bruce Garand, entertained us and several other variety numbers were pre- sented. Many were attracted to the occasion and few will ever forget 'El Candelabra." l 66 A.
