This Is My Personal Diary:
Now this is supposed to be confidential,
But I guess it's not absolutely essential
That we keep things hidden from others,
just my kid sisters and brothers.
I'll keep my most treasured memories here
The memories that I hold especially dear.
The ones of my school, FHS, and my friends,
Of the lessons, activities and fashion trends.
I remember the night of the prom it was swell.
Geepers-there'll be lots of things to tell.
After a while when I'm old and grey.
And must sit and rock in a chair all day,
I'll get you out, dear diary, and read
Remembering I'll say, "The good old days, yes, indeed!"

Here begin the memories of the Class of 1951. When we look at the pictures of the little people in the picture
below, we remember when our class began the second half of its educational career with fear and trembling, having been
warned repeatedly by our dear and wellfwishing teachers of the grades that junior High was really tough, and that we
would certainly have to work. Looking back on that memorable day a trickle of a tear might have been seen as we search'
ed bashfully for an assigned roomemany of us eventually winding up in the wrong room, because we didn't dare ask
directions of the upperclassmen or teachers.
As the days progressed, we found ourselves getting more and more familiar with the building. We didn't get
lost quite so often going from English to Art, or from Arithmetic to Gym. Our teachers, as time wore on, proved not
to be the monsters we had imagined.
With yearning hearts and eager faces we watched the older boys participating in the sports and winning the
laurels that someday might be ours. We attended the games faithfully and no one cheered as lustily as we. Having
achieved a determination to succeed in our education, we left for summer vacation with a Christmas party as our fond!
est memory of our first year in FHS.
In the fall of our eighth grade year, we looked forward to returning with much anticipation and, forgetting all
too soon our seventh grade troubles, surely lorded it over the new students.

WE STILL RECALL how enthusiastically we looked forward to the guidance periods that were substituted
for Arithmetic on Fridays. This substitution was a reward for a week of good behavior.
Some of our more adventurous members started a little newspaper which lasted about two weeks.
The high spot of this year was trying to make out our schedules for the next four years. We still remember
very kindly some of the friendly suggestions and counsel given by Mr. Newell and our various teachers. And somehow,
possibly by a good shove from a kindhearted teacher, we pulled through the eighth grade.
In that everftofbe remembered year of 1947, the class of 1951 started on the last lap of its educational training
with a few brains, some native ability, much conceit, and a lot of good humor. Our mental geniuses were discovered that
year. To our number were added a few new members.
We now thought we were the supreme rulers of Junior High, with our body and soul dedicated to being Seniors.
During that year we demonstrated our acting ablity and had our first case of stage fright when we presented
"Bunny Comes To Town". The Coon coat worn during the play started a fad of coon coats in the school. It was this
play that started many hopes of succeeding in the bigger plays to come.
Early in our Sophomore year we chose Mrs. Burket as our adviser.
AT OUR FIRST CLASS MEETING in the balcony of the Auditorium we elected the following class ofiiers:
Jay Rhoads as president, Dick Haggerty as vicefpresident, Charlotte Serge as secretary, and John Harris as treasurer.
These officers served faithfully and well and were refelected for our Junior year.
We sponsored several successful projects in 1948. First of our class projects was selling homefmade candy at
the plays and the Broadcast. Basketball schedules and pencils were sold at the games and the amount in our treasury
In the second semester of our Sophomore year we held our first dance, "The Apple Blossom Frolicn and
danced to the tunes played by the FHS Swing Band. The gym was attractively decorated in keeping with the theme.
During the intermission the dancers were entertained by a floor show. Guy Stallone, already beginning to be noticed
for his sin ing ability, rendered a solo, accompanied by Ginny Gramlich, who amused the audience by being dressed in
the garb of an old fat farm lady, Norman Beals rendered a selection on his musical saw, and Mary Ann Wiegel enter'
tained with a ballet dance. After an evening of fun and dancing everyone left the frolic with a light heart.
The many talented members of our class were gaining more recognition, and preparing for the leadership we were
looking forward to in the next two years. As Sophomores, Ed Wible and jay Rhoads attended the football banquet
and received letters for defending FHS on the gridiron.

AT LAST WE ARE NEARING OUR GOAL. By the second week of our junior year we were busily
working in the concessions at the football field. Some of our willing workers found it quite a feat to sell hot dogs and
watch the game at the same time. Nine juniors were out there defending FHS. Some of us sold candy and pop at the
basketball games while others were getting in their share of plays on the floor.
By this time we had grown up enough to stage the play, "Meet Me in St. Louis". We still smile as we remember
Mary Baker and Sue Riddle in their long dresses, black stockings and high button shoes, and the roar that went up from
the audience as Mary tried to bite Dick Gillingham's leg, or the party that followed on the last night of the performance.
The hard working play cast was soon retplaced by an equally hard working prom committee. After numerous
meetings a fairyland theme was chosen. Then ollowed long hours of making pro rams, drawing the never to be forf
gotten pictures of Puss in Boots, Cinderella, and many others. These pictures, abfy drawn by Rick Bleakley assisted
by other members of the committee, adomed the walls of the gym the night of the dance and were later carefully laid
to rest in the third floor for future generations to admire.
THE LONG ANTICIPATED EVENING OF THE PROM finally arrived and found Betty Lou Anderf
son and Bill McGuckin as queen and king. The court consisted of Jim McBride, Mary Baker, Jay Rhoads, and Sally
Morris with Larry Morris and Peggy McDowell as crown bearers.
At the beginning of the second semester of our Junior year, Bill Gaiser, Peg Walz, Pat Brown, Dick Haggerty,
Sue Riddle, Barbara Porter, and Charlotte Serge were honored by being asked to become members of the Franklin Chap'
ter of the National Honor Society. Bill Gaiser and Peg Walz served as president and secretary during their Senior year.
On the Hfth day of September, 1950, we embarked upon our last lap of the long and toilsome journey with a
company of 136. However, a few, eager to venture into matrimony, left us during the year.
We missed one whole assembly when we met in the gym the first week of our Senior year to iron out a few
important problems. Officers emerging successfully from the election that day were Jay Rhoads, president, Charlotte
Serge, secretary, John Harris, treasurerg and a tie between Jim McBride and Dick Haggerty for the vicefpresidency.
After casting the votes over again Jim McBride was elected.
At the meeting the class chose white and maroon as the class colors and decided the girls' robes for graduation
should be white and the boys' maroon. Following this meeting the yearbook staff selected a cover of maroon and def
cided that the Franklinite for 1951 should be a diary of our year s activities.
Three successful record hops were held after the football games. Early in the fall we ordered an assortment of
Christmas cards to sell, and you could always pick out the Seniors as they went about burdened with an armload of

THE PACE IS GETTING EASTER. Shortly after the record hops a Senior dance committee started work
ing on the decorations for the football dance, and the night of November 17, 19511, found the gym decorated with varif
colored pennants clustered together and fastened at the center of the gym to a miniature football field with goal posts
The crowning of a football queen was the main feature of the evening. Mary Baker had been chosen as queen
by the FHS band and was crowned by Ed Wihle, honorary captain of the squad for the season. Ted Brookhouser and
his orchestra played for the event.
We might mention here that FHS had been served faithfully and well for the last four years by Ginny Gramlich,
Charlotte Serge, Nancy Dudley, and Mary Baker as cheerleaders.
Our next big project was the Senior play, "A Credit To The Family", and although we were hampered by the
big snow, school being closed, the date changed, and other obstacles too numerous to mention, the production proved
successful. We can still call to mind Pete Bargar, with his long hair and willowy figure reciting poetry to a bevy of girls
Shortly after the first semester the new Senior members of the Honor Soceity were chosen. Those selected
were Dick Gillingham, lim McBride, Phyllis DiPasquale, Susan Moulton, Shirley Wilson, Ed Wible, Nancy Dudley,
Mary Baker and Rick Bleakley.
April brought another Broadcast featuring Guy Stallone, Mary Ann Weigel, Pat Brown and many others of
And now, with Class Day scheduled for Friday, May 18, Baccalaureate for Sunday, May 20th, and Graduation
for Thursday, May 24th, we face the future with courage and hope.
SOPHOMORE CLASS GFFICERS
Anita Power, Rita Eckel, .lean Clark, james Vergis.
The Sophomore Class of 1953 organized for the first time with 150 members. Because the Cooking and Sewing
rooms were closed while being rebuilt, Mr. Newell had quite a time finding a place to put us all. Rooms 113, 11, and
100 were turned into Sophomore home rooms.
When we had first entered Franklin High we had been assigned the homerooms on the first floor of the new
building. The back rooms of the corridor were ours and most of our classes were held there. The next year we did not
move very far, but it was one step toward the Senior High and we still had hopes of advancing. As Freshmen, we
took the second floor of the new building, and we were another step nearer our goal. Then at last it happened, we
came to the old building for the first time. Now we are Senior High pupils.
Once we were used to being upperclassmen, we started to look around to pick the officers who would lead us
in our first year as a real class. A nominating committee had meetings, got advice from Mr. Newell, interviewed teachers,
and discussed the momentous question with our classmates. At last we were ready to organize.

HARD WORK AND DETERMINATION marked all the committees chosen to carry on the work of the
year. The first thing was to order the basketball pencils with the year's schedule on them. When they came every
home room in the building echoed to the question "Who wants to buy a pencil today?", and the clink of nickels and
dimes. In no time they were gone, and we had a sum in the class treasury against the day when we would need money
to pay for the expenses of the Senior Banquet and Dance. Graduation did not seem quite so Hit away as it had before.
Soon we had to prepare for the candy sales, and again the Sophomore home rooms were invaded by comf
mittee members collecting promises to bring home made candy to sell at the Senior Play. We didn't ask how much the
the committee bought of their own wares, but so much delicious candy is a temptation, and it was all sold before the
orchestra played the first note of its first piece.
By the time the -lunior Play and Musical Broadcast were presented, we were in our stride. The committee mem'
hers knew just what to do and again the prettily decorated table was bare in a short time, and more dollars were added
to our slowly growing treasury.
Our first dance was the big event of the year for us and we were determined to make it the most unusual Sopho'
more Dance ever held. We chose the theme, "The Thing", and since "The Thing" has never been described, we'll just
have to report that it was unusual. '
MANY CLUBS AND ACTIVITIES that had been closed to the Sophomores were chosen this year. The
many who were active in these organizationsAtoo many to name all of themfshowed that the Class of 1953 is going
to be an outstanding one in many fields.
Sandra Richards and Ruth Weiss became members of the Debate Club, and George Norton and John Eshelman
were initiated into I'IifY. Whenever a play or concert was given by students, Anita Power, Norma Keil, Jon Davies,
Peggy Stallone, and Jim Vergis, members of the Courtesy Club, were on hand to assist in seating the audience.
Bob Cranford, Linda Barnicle and Linda Heckathorne were among the Sophomore representatives who worked
hard and long on the projects of the Junior Red Cross. Janet Laughner, Carolyn Rebert, Jim Runninger and Jean Clark
were only a few of our class who represented their home rooms on the Student Council and Jean Clark served on the
Public Relations Committee which has done such good work each year at the time of the FranklinfOil City football game.
Among the Sophomores who worked on the Projectors Club and Stage Crew were Jim Runninger, Jim Gramlich,
and Jim Fleming. Faye Rhoads and Betty Lou Morrison were members of the Broadcast Staff.
The Sophomore class was well represented in all the musical organizations. Allan Pedley, Don McCullough
and Linda Barnicle were in the band, Coyla Ritz in the Orchestra, Mary Marshinke, Peggy Stallone, Jim Harris, Gerry
McFarland, Chuck Bennett and Ruth Weiss in A Cappella, Jim Henson, Wayne Crisman and Bob Maul in Boys' Glee
Club, to name only a few.
We were active in many sports also. Many of us participated in Girls' and Boys' basketball and Intramural
teams, we had representatives on both JV and Varsity football, and the cheerleaders were tops.
We have put forth a great effort to surpass the sophomores of earlier years. During the next two years we will
take our places as leaders of the school and activities. We hope that our work this year will help us to bring honor to
our class and school.

When we first entered the seventh grade, most of us were awed by the confusing halls, the many classrooms and
the older students. We felt important though, because we, at last, were students of Franklin High. It didn't take us
long to get acquainted and I remember how proud we were of Nancy Wiegel and Barbie Cealy when they appeared in
the Musical Broadcast.
The next year many of our classmates entered the band and orchestra. As freshmen six of our class were chosen
cheerleaders, P. Butters, D. Boughner, M. McGrew, B. Gealy, A. Monarch and N. Wiegel. It seemed to us that every'
thing was going faster.
In our sophomore year we elected oilicers for the first time, and with Mr. Newell as adviser, we enjoyed a sucf
cessful year and built up our finances by selling basketball schedule pencils everywhere, and candy at the plays.
A committee was chosen to select class rings. We brought our year
to a close with the spring dance called "A Dreamer's Holiday".
, Time flies right along and here we are Juniors! The first thing we did
W2 T was organize committees to sell hot dogs and refreshments at the football
games. The kids really hustled and bustled seeing that everyone got hot
coifee and candy bars too. The following juniors helped to sellg K. Dale,
A. Monarch and A. Colella, chairmen, R. Metz, H. Grove, S. McFetf
ridge, C. Hawkins, M. Morrison, P. Heller, J. Findlay, O. Morrison,
M. Stefanakos, D. Green, D. Sterns, A. Brown, S. Brown, D. Ahearn,
P. McFarlane, M. Skelton, B. Wolfe, S. Cubbison, A. Brookhauser, C.
Foreman, E. Warner, R. Farren, A. Timmis, F. Greggs, B. Gildenston,
B. Ritz. These sales brought us profit and helped us pay expenses.
Then we elected our ofhcers, whose pictures are shown above. Our
class rings arrived. Maybe we're prejudiced, but we think they're the
There were several class meetings during the year. At these meetings
we learned new committees on which we were to serve, and heard reports
about the progress of class work.

P THE COMMITTEES, in addition to the one that sold at the games, were appointed to work on the Christmas
dance, Prom, and the selling of stationery. The Stationery Committee had S. McFetridge as chairman, and serving with
her were N. Fry, A. Colella, D. Boughner, B. Moore, J. Adams, C. Karns, B. Allen, A. Sterner, B. johnson, B. Burkhardt,
P. Perry, and S. Osgood. The stationery was a special kind. Those ordering it could have several different styles with
their own name or initials on it.
Winter came and with the Christmas season came our Christmas Dance, "The Peppermint Stick Dance". What
fun. Will you ever forget Paul Stroup as Santa, passing out candy-or going up the chimney on his way out. I'm sure
, everyone had a swell time.
The next big event was the Junior Play. We had a lot of fun picking it out. The cast included M. McDowell,
G. Gyder, S. Cubbison, B. Gildenston, B. Hardenburg, and many others. Gee, did we work hard to make it a success.
members of the Band, Orchestra, A Cappella Choir, Madrigal, Triple Trio, Swing Band, Boys' and Girls' Glee Clubs.
Nancy Knoizen was vicefpresident of the Student Council, Albina Monarch was president of the Library Club, Marilyn
McDowell was vicefpresident of the Orchestra, and Kay Dale was vicefpresident of the Girls' Glee Club.
D The juniors have been active in other school activities beside the class projects. There are the junior cheerleaders,
Next years' Franklin football team will have members of our class as experienced players, D. Manson, D. Porter,
, B. Ace, J. Glenn, F. Deeter, F. Atwell, B. Ritz, G. DeLong, and D. Griffen. And the basketball team will have D. Manf
son and B. Ace from this years varsity.
There were other sports that many juniors engaged in.

THE BOYS AND GIRLS HAVE INTRAMURAL GAMES at noon, and there was a girls' basketball team
which was very successful. The following junior girls formed the backbone of a team that won almost all of their gamesg
B. Gealy, -I. Peterson, H. Barnicle, G. Sherman, P. Perry, M. McDowell, B. Moore, M. Stefanakos, P. Butters.
We have some great talkers in our classg K. Dale, M. McGrew, P. Butters, P. Perry, A. Sterner, N. Knoizen.
Only our talkers have a purpose in their talking, to win debates. Our class is proud of Bob Linsley, the only junior boy
in the French Club. The Projectors Club and the Stage Crew couldn't have gotten along without B. Ritz, B. Newton,
C. Hawkins, C. Power, B. Corbett and B. Allen. Any day you could look in the hall and see one of them carrying a
piece of scenery or the movie machine to set up for a classroom movie.
The whole class was thrilled when six juniors were chosen for the Honor Society at the end of the first semester.
They were A. Monarch, P. Butters, M, McDowell, R. Manson, K. Dale and A. Sterner.
These are just a few of the leaders in our class. If I had time to list all the activities, I'm sure I would name all
the juniors. Everyone can look at the pictures and remember some favorite event. But I'm sure for all of us the most
outstanding event would be the Prom. What a perfect way to bring a wonderful year to a climax.
Well, dear diary, five years have passed since we entered Franklin High. In our travels we have lost many of
our classmates, and added a few. We have been fortunate in having Mr. Newell as our adviser who was ever to he
depended on when help or direction was needed. Those years flew by on wings, and we are now ready to become seniors.
The hope that our last year in high school may be as enjoyable as this one has been is the wish of every member of this
Our first Sophomore Dance,
'LA Dreamer's Holiday" was a
big success. The committee smiles
under the "Money Tree". Con-
rad Hawkins, a junior Franklinite
Photographer tries posing for a
change. Can't you smile, Connie?
The latest thing in turtle necks.
Bob Ritz is a candidate for the
football varsity next year. A few
of the juniors contribute their
services to the Franklinite. Conf
rad, Maria, Marilyrw, Joyce, Nancy
and the top of Lois' head. Shirley
and Janice are hunting for a pic'
ture in the file.
Our junior Dance, "The Pep'
permint Stick", was a big success.
Maybe you don't know him with
all those whiskers, but that's
Paul Stroup, our Santa preparing
to take off up the chimney after
he had passed out candy canes.
These are only a few of the
concession workers in a peaceful
moment. I wonder if they made a
profit? During the games I don't
know who ate the most, the cus'
tomers or the salesmen. At the
basketball games Mr. Newell
helped out during the rush. This
snap was taken from the top of the
coke machine. They almost had
one cracked skull to give away.
When we were freshmen we
looked like this? I don't believe
it! Can you pick out Beryl Ace
and Pat Butters?
Today, dear diary, I want to tell you about someone. Her name is Mrs. Burket. I know! You don't know
much about her except that I have mentioned her name before to you on different occassions.
She is the Senior class advisor, and what a card! She's swell. You know, the other day, she gave some of the
Seniors the "dickens" for making so much noise in a place where "Silence'l reigned and she wound up apologizing for
getting angry because she says "You're my favorites" of course we're not supposed to tell that, she said.
Boy! I'll never forget the junior play, "Meet Me in St. Louis", that she directed. After the first nights of pracf
tice, she started mumbling to herself and every once in a while she threw her book at someone! But it surely was fun!
I nearly died laughing the night that she was screaming, UNO! No! No! It's all wrong," and she was waving her hands
around in the air and jumping up and down on her play book. Then one of the fellows took a picture of her with a flash
bulb camera! I saw it and it looked just like her except that it wasnlt quite as animated!
Gosh! Now that I think about it I never really treasured those moments, at least not until now, now that I'm
graduating. It'll seem funny enough to leave F. H. S., but to leave Mrs. Burket! Oh gee! I won t have any one to run
to with my problems. She was a big help that way. Besides, it was nice being a Senior, on top of the pile with her.
It's a good thing she was around to keep things in order, we had such a conglomeration of scatterbrains and
geniuses. It must have been quite a struggle seeing that things were running smoothly and keeping us out of trouble.
Well, Goodnite dear diary. Remember Mrs. Burket is a Wonderful person.
Today I'm leaving Franklin High. Why, I'm so sad that I could cry,
Thinking how I'l1 miss my chums, their cares and worries and devilish fun.
How I shall miss the change of classes that filled the empty halls with masses
Of students rushing to and fro, some not caring where they go.
Yes, I'll miss the many favors that I did for my careless neighbors,
Like doing their homework and answering "Here" while they slipped off without any fear
Oh, how I'll miss public speaking classg the speeches I gave with my heart beating fastg
And the ever constant, Parlezfvous francais?" that the teacher asked me in
French every day.
The classics in English I patiently read, and wished to goodness I were dead.
Then I'll remember the football games, hoping the team would rise to fame.
And too I'll remember the basketball team, the long winning shot that made me scream.
The dances later where the hearty girl asked the bashful boy to take a whirl.
I'll think of the assemblies where I sighed "Oh, dear, another boring speaker is here".
The senior assembly -I'll remember its fun, and the thoughts that made the big tears run.
I'll long remember the joy once found at the Junior Prom in my fine new gown.
Well, it's over now, but it was bestg the joy and fun and all the rest
Of burdens that come when I graduate, the burdens I love and the burdens I hate.
And though it's over, it's plain to see that Franklin High means a lot to me.

Ma To the Prom
Dear Diary :
It's about 5:00 A. M. and I'm so sleepy! Before I go to bed I want to tell
you about the wonderful time I had at the junior Prom tonight. Wofofofo,
I mean last night! It was the annual prom given for the Seniors in the boy's
gym by the junior Class. This year it was called "The Fairyland Ball".
As I entered the gym through a broken tinfoil "mirror", I found myself in
a world of nursery rhyme characters. The walls were decorated with ten
foot high paintings of fairytale characters and beside each picture was a story
telling what the picture was about, giving the effect of a book. Dear me!

When I Hrst went into the gym, I was handed a program in the form of a
pink water lily. I noticed that others had different colored ones.
The thing that showed the most work was the false ceiling, made of aqua

At the far end of the gym was the throne for the king and queen of the
prom. Only the committee knows ahead who they will be and no matter
how hard we hinted, no one would tell us. Near the purple and white
throne was a beautiful garden scene complete with a pond, rabbits, and
Bambi, surrounding Snowwhite sitting on a rock. You can get an idea of
how it looked if you look at the picture of Connie Bean and Don McCarter
standing near it.
Delicious punch and cookies were served from a cartwheel table def
corated with aqua and white streamers. It was such a popular place that
I had to put a picture of it in also. just look at Susan and Helen Moultoii
working like beavers! PeeWee McGuckin seems worried about something.
Through the Looking Glass I95O
In the chaperon's corner I saw Mary Baker's and Barbara Porter's mothers
busily engaged in a conversation with Wesley Rarer and Nancy Browns
parents. Charlotte Serge's, Dick McDowell's and Sue Riddle's parents
seemed to enjoy the dancing. A lot of my teachers were there. Once when
I looked over, Miss Rankin, Miss Shorts, Miss Cardamone and Miss Smith
were getting a big laugh out of something. Mr. and Mrs. Newell, Mr.
and Mrs. Dutkin and Mr. and Mrs. Wolfe were on the dance floor most of
Of course the main attraction of the evening was the crowning of the king
and queen. We were led in the march by Jay Rhoads and Sally Morris and
their escorts. We watched carefully to be first to see what senior boy and
girl would be crowned king and queen for 1950. Mary Baker and jim Mc'
Bride were the Duke and Duchess and finally they, along with jay and Sally,
conducted Betty Lou Anderson and Bill McGuckin to the throne to reign
over the Fairyland Prom of 1950. They were followed by little Peggy Mcf
Dowell and Larry Morris, who were the crown bearers. Mary and jim
crowned Betty Lou and Bill and presented them with gifts. There's the
picture of Betty Lou and Jim and their court before they received their gifts.
Bill doesen't seem to like his crown, but isn't Betty Lou a pretty queen?
This wonderful prom took a lot of work and I want to remember the
names of my classmates who spent so many hours to plan and turn the gym
into fairyland. They were Roberta Henderson, Nancy Bell, Helen Moulf
ton, janet Pence, Lee Black, Rickey Bleakley, Philip Engles, Bill Gaiser,
Gene Greenlee, Dana Holmes, Dave Kinnear, jim McBride, Dick McDowell,

By one o'clock the dance floor was empty and the dancers had left for
individual parties in Franklin or to drive out of town for something to eat.
I think I'll paste some more pictures in so you can see some more of the
dance. There's the picture of the Grand March at the top. jay Rhoads

Meet Me In St. Louis was an entirely different play. It took place at the time of the World's Fair there and
we had a lot of fun dressing up in the costumes of the early nineteen hundreds.
The juniors rolled back the pages of time to 1904, the period of high collars, bustles and the World's Fair and
presented the comedy, "Meet Me In St. Louis". The play was presented in the high school auditorium March 30 and
31 and provided laughter and entertainment for a large audience.
llpon opening the doors of the past we find late spring setting in, and the excitement of the Smith family pref
paring for the Woi'ltl's Fair, which is to be held in St. Louis. Rickey Bleakley plays the part of Mr. Smith, a St. Louis
business man and the head of the Smith household, and his wife, Mrs. Smith, is portrayed by Nancy Dudley.
Sue Riddle and Mary Baker as Agnes and Tootie Smith, the two brats of the family, provide the comedy interest
of the play with their everlasting pranks.
Their two older sisters, Rose and Esther were portrayed by Sally Morris and Mary Ann Wiegel, who carried
out their role as typical young ladies. Dick McDowell as Lon Smith, the girls' only brother has troubles enough and
when he becomes infatuated with Lucille Pentard, played by Helen Stephanides, matters aren't helped any.
Lon's romance and the Hrct that Mr. Smith might be transferred to New York brings added drama, but the cur'
tain falls with all ending well.

paratively young organization. Each year at the beginning of the second semester as assembly is presented by the memf
bers of the society. During this assembly, four members speak on the four qualities previously mentioned. This is probably
the most solemn assembly presented during the year. While the whole school waits. the members come down from the
stage to tap the students who have been chosen to be initiated. The maximum number for induction each year is Iliff,
of the senior class and 5' of the juniors.
Seniors who were inducted this year were Mary Baker, Nancy Dudley, Susan Moulton, Shirley Wilstvii, Ed
Wilwle. Phyllis di Pasquale, .lames McBride, Richard Gillingham. and Rick Bleakley. The iuniors chosen were Albina
Monarch, Pat Butters, Marilyn McDowell, Richard Manson, Kay Dale, and Ann Sterner.
Projects of the National Society include the purchase and decoration of the hall Christmas treeg the devotions
each Monday over the Public Address System, and the guiding of new students on the lirst day of school. Each year
a number of speakers are invited to give information in which the members are interested.

Government." It was a lot of work, but we had such a good time. Bill Gaiser and Ann Sterner were the negative
team, and Norman Beals and Kay Dale were the allirmative team. The others were alternates. We had several trips,
when one team would visit another school, and the other team would play host here in Franklin.
This year there were many new members. Of these Mary McGrew was the program chairman for the meetings
and she was assisted by Betty Lou Morrison and .lanie Burrell. ln these meetings we presented debates for criticism.

I never knew Lihrary Cluhs had such a wide field and so many interests. We had our first regular duties at the
desk and each of the Sophomores had a section to read and keep in order. I m afraid these shelves were neglected at times.
Our first large project was making displays for National Book Week, hut the project that took the most time and
work was the S wrin Y Shindi '. We decided to make it a St. Patrick s Da celehration and we even crowned a kin 1 and
i is s D V E s
queen. We made dozens of green and white crepe paper hats, and hlew up halloons till we lost our hreath. We had
hooths for everything from fortune telling to knocking cans over with halls.

duty in the school. The memhers are drawn from all classes in the senior high school and are trained to usher at school

The final issue of the "Broadcast" came out today. I have kept every paper. It's a good record of school
events. Was I ever surprised when I was chosen Student of the Month last time. One of my baby pictures was in an
earlier issue. It was the one that I had taken when I had my front tooth knocked out while playing ball with the kid
next door. I still get teased about it.
I guess I liked the Christmas issue best. I nearly collapsed over what some of the kids wanted for Christmas.
One girl wanted a pair of red usnuggiesu for her dog.
One time there was a column ahout amhitions and some fellow said he was going to sell peanuts at Forhes Field.

The orchestra started this year a little larger than it was last, and hetter, we thought, hecause more of us had
had several year's experience. We elected Charlotte Serge and Norman Beals as our President and VicefPresident and
Marilyn IVIcDowell our SecretaryfTreasurer.
As always, the orchestra presented the music for the plays, contests and Commencement, and we tried some
really dirlicult pieces. At Cpen House in the fall we gave our first program and had the thrill of playing for many of
Practices were held twice a week throughout the year, and for many the orchestra class was hy Rlr the hlvorite.
The President acted as student director on several occasions. We will miss the seniors in the orchestra who will graduate
this year, Charlotte Serge, Norman Beals, Nancy Brown, Barhara Porter, David Yard, Dick Haggerty, .lack Barlett, Dana
Holmes and Violet Dailey.

The A Cappella choir had a very successful year. We put on a Christmas program for the Parent Teachers
Association that earned many compliments. At the District Festival we received an ahove average rating. The Honor
Society initiation was made more impressive hy the A Cappella choir singing.
We played host to the Oil City choir this winter and learned many things which will henelit us, especially we
noted how quiet they were when the director was on the podium.
At the Baccalaureate the seniors sang with us for the last time. lt will he hard to start next year without them,

Above is pictured a squad of game football players. Each and every one put forth his best to produce a successful
team. These boys tried hard, but the breaks went against them.
They had line coaches who were admired by players and managers alike. These coaches, like the players, never
gave up and continually urged the team on. At the last athletic assembly when the letters were given out, the team and
the cheerleaders turned the tables on the coach, and presented Mr. Wolfe with a watch as a token of his twenty years
as coach of the Franklin High team. Following the presentation, lvlr. Wolfe made a speech, and the school sang the Fight
Song, which he had introduced to our school.
Although the season was relatively unsuccessful, the players were pleased with the little footballs and pins
which they received at a hanquet given in their honor by the Eagles.

Their season was spent with an equal amount of hard work and fortitude. There were even times when they
surprised the varsity.
Mr. Uram did an admirable job in preparing these boys for the years to come. They gained experience and a
knowledge of the game.
At the close of the season they received their reward in a dinner at the Park Lunch, donated by the Kozyro family.

were then comhined with the Varsity. Practices were held regularly ever day under Coach Alec Dutkin. lr was thtlicult
for Mr. Dutkin to choose any five starting players hecause of the close competition among them. The team used a man
to man defense most of the year and hopes to develop into a Section 2 winner in the next two years, All the team except

The junior High basketball team, under the supervision of Coach Ken Wolfe had a fairly successful season.
Hampered by lack of height, the team did exceptionally well. Mr. Wolfe. who previously coached Junior Varsity, did
a good job with the material he had.
Using a zone defense, the young team won many thrilling games. A few went into over time and had the crowd
on their feet.
Mr. Wolfe used mostly his starting five, Moyer, Burrell, Snyder, Kresenski, and McDowell. Some players
will return for next year, while the others will move up into the JV team.
We hope with the right breaks and luck, that the coach will have a winning combination next year.
The Junior High team had many enthusiastic audiences. Here john tells janet Kaste to smile for the birdie.

junior team and two sophomore teams. Mr. Uram was in charge of the games. We got some very good officiating from
Donald McFarlane, Bob Beatty, and John Ramsey. The season was divided into halves with each team playing ten games.
Each team was made up of ten players and each player got to play his share of every game. After the big events was the
Bus Riders Tournament in which there were five teams made up of boys that come in on the busses. There was also
a Junior High Intramural made up of seventh, eighth, and ninth grade teams. They played every Tuesday and Friday
with two games each day.
The senior team, made up of Bill Elliott, Bob Hillier, John Edwards Snyder, Don Lawson, Keith Smith, Wesley

of learning how to apply artificial respiration. The girls did continuous counting, 1f2f3f4 and within a six weeks period
were ahle to acquire the skill they were striving for. The girls, if they do much swimming, will probably have a chance
to apply their knowledge and skill this summer. We hope they won't, but they'll be ready.

The hot lunch program was tried for the hrst time in 1051 and was a success. The first month over two thousand
meals were served, and the project was so well organized that more could have heen taken care of. Starting after the
Christmas vacation, those pupils who wished,went to the YMCA where they were served a halanced hot lunch at a
low cost, lt is to he hoped that this lunch program will only he the heginning, and that Franklin High will eventually
have its own cafeteria. Ahove is a typical scene ahout 12 oiclock at the Y.

FRANKLIN BOARD of SCHOOL DIRECTORS 'Mrs. Budke, Dr. Turner, Mr. Allen, Mr. Graham,
Mr. Ferringer, Dr. Bailey, Mr. Cramer.
Many of the boys and girls in our school today hardly realize the good work that our Board of School Directors
does for us. It is only by their willingness to spend hours of time and study on school matters that we secure many
things we take for granted. The Hot Lunch Program and the new Home Making Department were both started this year
by the eilorts of the board. Other improvements are being studied and considered to make Franklin High School better
able to serve the student body and the community.
Dr. Moore and Mr. Newell were served eihcif
ently by the secretaries Mrs. Mabel Urey and Miss
Peggy Beightol, who were both new this year. We
were all very sorry when Peggy left at the end of
February to go to Wzishiiigtoii.

the Principal this year but also did a very

When the class was feeling let down, Mr.
Newell was right there to help out in any
way he could.
Dr. Harry Moore you see pictured here
is, as you know, our new superintendent.
He has been here since just the beginning
of the year but it seems to us that we have

WE LOOK INTO THE FUTURE 1951 1961
On Thursday, May 18, 1961, aboard the ocean liner U.S.S. Matter of Fact are to be
found two philanthropists, Rick Bleakley and Dick McDowell, voyaging to Europe. As
they come on the ship's deck three sailors, Bob Ging, Merle Baker, and Jim Phillips, are
seen swabbing the deck. The boys recognize each other and are about to relax to have a
good old fashioned chin about F. H. S., when the ship's captain, john C. Ramsey, enters.
Jim is sent to the crow's nest as lookout and the other two swabs are set to cleaning the
deck on the double quick.
Other personages to be found on the ship are Pat Brown, who has become a noted
opera singer, and Guy Stallone-Hollywood's number one play boy. Jay Rhoads, a
narcotic salesman, thinks he has eluded the F. B. I. and is safely on his way, when who
should appear traveling on the same ship, but Copper Wes Rarer, who always gets his man.
The budding romance of Joanne Dalmaso and Jim McCarter's, which began in the
halls of F. H. S., is now finally bursting into full bloom. They have just won a honeymoon
trip to Europe by guessing the right answer on a radio quiz program.
Tom Cartwright is an inspector of roads and plans to spend some time in France
inspecting a new super plastic highway the French have developed. Tom becomes sea
sick and, thinking he is going to die, calls for a lawyer to make his last will and testament.
Dick Gillingham is rushed in as the lawyer, along with his secretaries, janet Beggs, Bonnie
O'Dell, Doris Lowrie, Connie Bean, Mary Ann Wiegel, Margaret McMurray, Betty
Gyder, and Sally Morris, who later is employed to write the history of the class of 1951.
Nancy Dudley is the ship's cigarette girl. Don Lawson is the ship's steward and as
his cooks he has employed his old friends from Franklin High who used to spend most of
their time in the school's new homemaking department. They are Mamie Wilson, Bern'
adeen Harris, Shirley Alaire, Lola Ace, Doris McKinley, and Alice McGinty.
Dana Holmes is now a famous flier. The captain has just received Dana's distress call
and is on the lookout. He is later fished out of the water by the crew and given medical
attention by Dr. Norman Beals. Dr. Beals has as his assistants a bevy of nurses, Violet
Daily, Janis Davis, Susan and Helen Moulton, Nancy Bell, Barbara Porter, Mary Lee
Hayes, Shirley Shilliday, and Maxine Kresenski.
Jim McBride is a U. S. Senator on board the U. S. S. Matter of Fact, and now spends
most of his time on vacation.
Bob Hilliard is discovered on the ship as a tramp stowaway. John Harris is a noted
wrestler and during the course of the voyage is challenged by Merle Baker, who throws
Dick Haggerty is traveling to England, having just been awarded the Nobel prize.
Joan Graham is now a noted poetess.
Dave Kinnear is president of the Farmer's Union, and is planning to attend a farmer's
convention in Berlin with other farmers of note, Phillip Engles, Richard and Paul Aylesf
worth, Larry Baker, Dick Robinson, john and Bob Snyder, Gene Sterling, Keith Smith,
Charles and Harold Greenlee, Dick Rhoads, Bill Reid, and Ed Wible.
WE LOOK INTO THE FUTURE 1951 1961
The ship's clowns, Pete Barger and Mike Mong, add to the enjoyment of the trip
and during the evening pass out remembrances to their many friends. Nancy Brown is
given a carrot, while Marilyn DeWoody is given a mirror. Phyllis DiPasquale receives an
alarm clock and Bob Andres receives a basketball. john Brinker is given a toy car, Joanne
Hovis a cook book, and Helen Phillips a tablet and pencil. For entertaining her students,
Sue Riddle is presented with a rattle. jack Schiffer receives a horse for horsing around.
Elsie Whitmer is given an apron and, for practical reasons, Ed Wible is given a toy tractor.
jerry Zinz is presented with a razor and Larry Graner a whistle, to come out of the fog.
Virginia Gramlich and Bill Self are old married folks, but due to the Korean War,
could not go on their honeymoon voyage until 1961, and thus are accompanied by four
children and their tutor, Charlotte Serge.
During the late evening jim McBride is persuaded to be master of ceremonies by the
ship's guests from F. H. S. A program follows which could equal the Musical Broadcast
staged any year in Franklin High School. Guy Stallone and Pat Brown favor with an
amusing duet. Distinction is provided by Sally Morris who reads the class history. john
Nelson demomstrates his abilities as a one man band and plays several selections to the
enjoyment of all. The class will, which was written by Mary Ann Wiegel and Sally
Morris, is read by Lawyer Dick Gillingham. janet Pence then sings a solo.
The climax of the program is reached when jim and Joanne are united in holy wedlock
by Bill Gaiser, pastor of "The Little Church around the Corner". The bride is given in
marriage by the 1951 football captain, Ed Wible. Other members of the wedding party
are Bob Andres as best man, Marion Perry as bridesmaid, Bill Logue as ringbearer and
Connie Bean as flower girl. Throughout the services, the ship's orchestra, consisting of
Dick Haggerty, Norman Beals, David Yard, Barbara Porter, Violet Dailey, Dana Holmes,
and Wesley Rarer, plays the traditional wedding march.
After the ceremony the ship is seen drifting into the horizon to the dreamlike music
of the ship's orchestra playing "Harbor Lights" and the members of the class singing the
well remembered words of their class song.
The days have passed us by
Those precious hours we'll always cherish
We're breaking every tie.
So long to Franklin High.
The laughter and the tears
In each one's dreams will ever linger.
They'll echo through the years
And we'll recall them all.
We'll still remember all the joys
We've known and shared
And not forget the many friends
For whom we've cared.
Mem'ries will never die.
The happy moments of our school days.
W'e're leaving Franklin High.
It's time to say, goodbye!

The senior staff which consists of twentyftwo members, has worked for approximately five hundred hours on this
year's book, after school and during study periods. We all hope that we can produce a book worthy of a rating hy the
National Scholastic Press Association.
The year ends with the happy
staff giving out the yearhooks and
relaxing at a banquet given as a
reward for work faithfully done.
The seniors on the staff are pref
sented with their copies of the
Franklinite, and the junior memf
bers hope to earn enough points
to get their copies in the same
way in another year.

"Lights, Action, Camera" is the call we hear at the heginning of school from the Franklinite stalli. The photo
graphers are husy getting snaps of all events, the husiness staff is visiting advertisers and everyone works to gain enough
points to stay on the staff and perhaps become next years' editor. There is a chart in the Pranklinite room and for every
hour or period you work you get a point. We had so much energy in 1951 that we just didn't confine ourselves to pro
ducing the yearhook. We sponsored a record hop on a night when it was 17 helow zero andrsold tickets for a heneiit
movie, "The Magnihcent Yankee", to make money to help pay the hills. Soon we will hegin the planning for the Franklin'
ite of 1052, when we will he seniors.
