To our cherished days of high school,
We prepare to close the door,
But deep within our hearts
those days shall live evermore,
To the blue and gold of Franklin,
And our alma mater too,
We leave a pledge of loyalty,
A pledge to be trlle.
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
So with mingled joy and sadness,
Every voice will rise in song,
To bid farewell forever,
As we now move along,

To the memory of Ronnie Mercier, better known to his
classmates as "Mer", we, the Class of 1955, dedicate this
page in our Yearbook.
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-
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."

Our thanks to you, Mr. Winsor, who has overlook-

We know that through your tireless efforts, we the
Class of 1955 will have the best vearhnok ever.
OUR KEY TO SUCCESS
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.

Suddenly the summer was over and on a bright September morning, so similar to another only three years before,
we found ourselves sitting in the front of the "gym". 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
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.

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.
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.

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. Clark and George Hancox.

tertaining assemblies. The credit for so many happy moments goes to the As-
sembly Committee. 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.

In spite of the fact that the Franklin High, Golden Tornadoes won only one
game in eight on the g ri dir on , they showed their spirit and sportsmanship.
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
Senior Co-captains, Ronnie Robichaud and Willie Roberge were nominated to
play in the Maple Sugar Bowl Shrine Game.

JUNIOR VARSITY BASKETBALL
The F. H. S. 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.

The F. H. 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
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.

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.
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.
"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
