I Yi Class 'History OUR LIFE AT BENJAMIN FRANKLIN can best be compared to that of a champagne bottle. For three years we lay almost dormant in our former school and then we came to life with a POP of the cork ! I We simply bubbled over . . . and the year had flown! The cork that capped us popped when the temporary social chairman fClifford Smithl and his committee CSylvia Gordon, John Frisone, Susie Rolick, and Mary Arnaol made the arrange- ments, with only a few days' notice, for a Hallowe'en dance that turned out to be just what it was called, "THE CAT'S MEOW."' Then the froth began bubbling over! We elected class offi- cers, year book editor, business manager, and school presidentg and for a climax we gave a Senior Play, "THE WHOLE TOWN 'S TALKING!" As the play was a success--at least from a financial standpoint-wedecided to give another dance in April which concluded our Senior year with a BANG ! ! !

Qi'-Zliiiiiiigl 35? BWWWFT The Bibliophiles The Bibliophiles is a senior high club directed by Miss Janet Sprague. The members are those who enjoy reading good books and talking about them. Its purpose is to acquaint the members with writers and books other than those they have known and to stimulate wider and more intelligent reading. At each meeting four or five members give reports on the lives and some of the books of the author predetermined for that week. The club is preparing an annotated list of books of their reading to be presented to the English Department and the library as reading sugges- tions. Bios One of the first, if not the first, clubs to be organized at Benjamin Franklin was the boys' nature club. They call themselves the Bios. Bios isn't a manufactured word like castoria or carbona. It is an old Greek word which means life. The purpose of the Bios is to become acquainted with live things, to enjoy their beauty, and to understand them. The Bios are especially in- terested in plants. The plant laboratory is their meeting place, and there you will find the members working every night after school and as often in between times as can be managed. Their interest is in life and living: they have few formalities, fewer formal meetings, no formal organizations, and a membership of workers. The Home Economics Clubs The Home Economics department sponsors three clubs: the Clothing Club, under the direction of Miss Stevensg the Cookery Club, under the direction of Miss Scribner, and the Home Economics Garden Club, under the direction of Mrs. May. The Clothing Club girls master the skill of making simple, inexpensive garments. They also turn old dresses into the new and fashionable. The girls in the Cookery Club prepare and serve meals. These meals have consisted of a hot dish, a salad or vegetable, a hot bread, and a desert. The girls in the Home Economics Garden Club grow their gardens in school. The members spend their spare moments in making picture and miniature rock gardens, window boxes, and propagated plants. The Chess Club This club was organized by students who are interested in scientific chess playing. After reaching a certain degree of proficiency, advanced students, judged by their tournament standing, will ofiiciate in the playing of those less adept at the game. Meetings are held once a week under the sponsorship of Mr. Paul Erickson. In the near future the club hopes to challenge other schools in tournaments. A limited number of candidates for the club will be welcome. SQMSKZZXQKEKZZ 1 1 if 40 ff M ,f Z ff:lrf1"lef'7lff"leX 4' I f"lv 'lv "iff f"lv M!

The repertoire includes for the most part, music of the church. The Choir has been a feature attraction at the Central Presbyterian Church, the Lake Avenue Baptist, and on school assembly programs. This group was asked to give radio programs which included tl1e Assembly of the Air over WHAM and the Centennial Celebration of the Rochester Sav- ings Bank over WHEC.

People of authority on the subject said that ours was the finest high school play which they had ever seen The plot begins with the return home from art school of Ethel Sim mons, accompanied by Roger Shields, a wealthy American of Chicago and Paris. Mrs. Simmons wishes Ethel to marry him, but Mr. Simmons has different plans. He tells Chet Binney, his elderly bachelor partner, to pro pose to his daughter Ethel. Chet awkwardly does so, and then things hap Donald Swift, a professional boxer. Then he is free to marry Ethel Clifford Smith was a success as Mr. Simmons the wealthv business man. Stella Franz adeptly portrayed Mrs. Simmons. Anthony Perotto put a professional touch into the part of Chet Binney Mr. Erle Remington did a remarkable piece of work in presenting such a mature production with amateur players. The class made over two hun- dred dollars on this play. This success is due mainly to Stephen Sorochety and his assistants. pen.

Slowly they gained some equipment, which they used in staging "The Boar," a one act comedy by Anton Chekhov. In this play the ability of Anthony Perotto was clearly shown. A great source of enjoyment at the assemblies is the contribution made by the musical organizations. Of particular enjoyment was the Irish pro- gram given by the soloists of the A Cappella choir. We have also heard many interesting speeches, particularly that of Mr. Stroup about Alaska. The assembly is an institution of the school to which we all look for- ward. 45 ,X .f ,f The Pirates of Penzance "The Pirates of Penzance" was presented to delighted audiences on the evenings of December 5 and 6 in our auditorium. The cast was made up of both faculty and students. Marlowe Smith trained the chorus, and Karl Van Hoesen the orchestra. Jesse Ogden, who called forth prolonged applause for his acting, was in charge of painting the scenery, while Erle Remington was responsible for the general directing and for the costumes. The plot deals with the pirate apprentice Frederic, who on reaching the age of twenty-one, refuses to remain in the profession, contrary. to the persuasion of Ruth, his elderly sweetheart. After leaving the pirates, he falls in love with Mabel, the daughter of the all-wise Major-General Stan- ley, whose castle the pirates are attacking. With the aid of the police, he defeats the pirates, and as a reward he is given Mabel in marriage. The most admirable criticism was that such a splendid performance could be given by an almost complete high-school cast. Mrs. Edna Richard- son Barnes was the only person not a member of this school, who was in the cast. THE CAST The Pirate King .... STEWART FALK His Lieutenant .... ANTHONY BETTEN Frederic .... .

VIVIAN GROH The Faculty Frolic oi 1931 On the evenings of April 24 and 25, the faculty of our school blossomed forth in roles unfamiliar to us when they presented the Faculty Frolic of 1931. The orchestra played an overture and several intermezzos. Then we saw "The Rofmance'r's," a one act play by Edmund Rostand. Janet Sprague played the part of the leading lady admirably. Joseph Magro, our scenic artist, played opposite her. Other parts were humorously portrayed by Paul Erickson, Samuel Porter, and that well-known comedian, Jesse Ogden. A very unique one act play was "Long Distance," a comedy by W. H. Upson. Donald Rahtjen set aside the role of Latin teacher to become the service manager in a tractor company. Grace McCarthy was greatly ap- preciated as the "girly at Mike's Restaurant, as was Anne Hanna as the coy Mary Lee, who furnished the interest. Samuel Zornow, Harold Roche, and Walter Tennant all drew forth roars of laughter. Then followed "The ldlings of the King," a burlesque. written and di- rected by the inimitable Erle Remington, who played the role of King Arthur himself. Dora Clary made an admirable Guinivere, the lover of Sir Lancelot, namely Francis Henderson. Roy L. Butterfield was Modred, the horrible villain, while the magician Merlin, the king's wise guy, was played by Jesse Ogden. Helen Scott was the obedient page. In staging, acting, and costuming, the first faculty frolic has estab- lished a high standard for the others to follow. KMMQMQ EW 46 1 E 4 "x X il X l X .

WZ Basketball Team Despite all previous traditions that a school team entering its first year in sports competition never wins the championship, Franklin High s basketball team not only upset all dope by landing on top of the Inter-Scho lastic High School league, but they also captured the Monroe County title by trimming a fast Fairport five to the tune of 27-25, and then to top it all Coach Chamberlain's boys set back the Geneseo quintet, thereby adding the consolation crown of Western New York to their already sweeping glories Although Carl Chamberlain managed always to remain in the back ground, he deserves much credit for the splendid combination he turned out through his versatile coaching. "The Wizard's" strategy was highly instru mental in bringing about a 33-20 victory over a highly favored East High team. l Those who helped to carry the Red and White to glory are: Co-captains y Sam Mink and Art Michlin, "Bello" Snyder, Ken Stenzel, Jack Baker Matty Sendow, "Little" Abe Levitt, Bob Bray and Sol Cherry. Michlin and Mink were chosen for all-scholastic berths on several local newspapers, and "Bello" Snyder, the dead eye of the team, led the scoring column with 114 points garnered in 14 games. With many players coming back next year things look anything but dark on the basketball horizon. i, Franklin l is ir l l QA , lx W 28- SEASON RECORD OF BASKETBALL TEAM Irondequoit 28 Franklin 22-Commerce 24 -Fairport 20 -West High 17 -Tech.

Girls' Sports The first year at Benjamin Franklin offered the girls opportunities heretofore undreamed of in school sports. The several activities offered and entered by the girls were soccer, hockey, swimming, volley ball, basketball, hit-pin baseball, dancing, baseball, and tennis. The Junior High partici- pated in a hit-pin tournament which was the outstanding event in the Junior High section. Dancing classes which were held during the year had a big showing each week, and some of the girls became skillful in the art of dancing. The peak of all tournaments, meets, and activities was the swimming meet in which both Junior and Senior High girls participated. The Win- ners were Bessie Michelson fSenior Highl and Anna Kohut.' The audience which witnessed this event was thrilled, as well as greatly amused. With a start like this in athletics, the girls who will enter in future years will have a precedent to live up to.

While entering the building I won- dered whether the owls over the side entrances spouted water during a rain. The first one I talked to was Dave Carson. He spoke on two subjects: the first, that, upon inquiring at the office, he had been told that the "12Bl" after our home room number didn't mean a thing, and the second, that he would buy my Cicero. Neither announcement surprised me. I already knew the first subject to be true because I was assigned to this same "12B1" home room. Since Dave is tall, thin, wears glasses and has a large Adam's apple, I easily knew he was taking Latin. About this time Jess Gorkin came along and told us he was also in this home room. I recalled Dave's first subject and laughed. Why, with Jess and me in a teacher's conference, the whole bunch couldn't average a "C" grade. John Frisone came next. I haven't any objection to Johnny himself, but I can't stand sideburns, not even on a nannygoat. There is not one hair on any face that I like. I even use my Gillette on the cat-not even she can wear whiskers and stay in my house. Miss Hess came along then, and opened the door. She let the others enter, even Jess, but she demanded my identification slip before I got in. For a whole minute after I finally entered the room I felt as though I had just crawled over the ball park fence and sat down in the mayor's box seat at the opening game. When Mitchell Gould entered, I became normal again. I didn't think they'd let him even see the building. When some girls came in. we thought they were paying us a visit: but when they started demand- ing seats, we heard for the first time that the homerooms were to be mixed affairs. WOW! Were we mad! Why, Mike Golben had his family move out to the west side of the city so that he might have a chance to change schools. His plan was discovered, and now Mike is paying ten cents a day to the 58 5962! Z X255 car company as a punishment. We were surprised when new classmates kept coming in. It seems that the other rooms had more girls than ours. Howard Ashley and Pete Bidack f?D fooled the troubled Miss Hess by telling her they were the repair men sent up to clean out the homeroom pencil sharpener. Of course, there were a few who tried to get out into other home rooms when the cause for the disturbance was made known. Milt Shiffrin got up, gave his cuffs a few Hicks, brushed his red hair into place, fixed his tie, stood on his toes, gave a couple of "do do-o doo-oo's" and started to leave the room. However, he never succeeded because it seems Joe Haymoff, Dave Rosenbloom and John Frisone all had the same idea. A telephone call brought Bill Wolgast on the run. He ordered ladders placed under the windows for the others to continue with their classes, and left the battlers to fight it out. However, before the first period began, the Seniors were to participate in the flag raising and in the first assembly. I guess we were supposed to figure as a background. As it would happen, I didn't get into the pictures and I landed in the last row when we formed the background in the assembly. As a result no one believes me when I say I'm a senior, and I've almost no chance of graduating. I'm afraid to ask them to look up my school record. They might find I'm a junior high senior. It seems a certain teacher named Miss Greenwood was noted for her ignor- ance. They said that she, an English teacher, had never heard of the first letter in the alphabet and only seldom recalled the second letter and that she was strongly infiuenced by the double "e" in her name. I wasn't afraid. I knew she'd give me the same mark as all my other teachers. It's funny how I always get the same rating in all my subjects. At East High I aver- aged an "E" all the way through. You know, "E" for East, only given to Exceptional work. Of course, I thought in Franklin I'd get an "F," Imagine my embarrassment when I had to correct the spelling of my own English teacher. She actually spelled "Franklin" with an HO." The funny part of it is that though she's peculiar in her marking, I think I get along better 59 21225125 with her than any of the other students. While the others are discussing Macbeth, I often go to sleep. She understands-I need the rest to store up energy for the walk to my next class. With Miss Greenwood writing my recommendation, I am sure of success even before I look for a job. I think I'll become a newsboy and deliver her newspaper every night-just to show her beliefs in me were well founded. Miss Riley is teaching me civics. Al- though she gives me the same marks as Miss Greenwood, I don't enjoy her classes as much. Very often, during the period, she breaks into my rest by her shouts. You know you can't sleep in a room with some one, especially a lady like Effie, hollering all the time about the indifference of the average citizen toward government business. If every person in the U. S. could hear her, they'd become alive to their interests, like I am, and then I'd be able to sleep. Next, I have two study periods and then lunch. The first half hour I spend sleeping in the nurse's ofiice. I'm not particular. When someone's occupying the couch in the inner office, I sleep on the bench outside. After the rest, Mr. Butterfield sees to it that one of the faculty takes me riding for about another half-hour in order to work up an appetite for lunch. Did you know the school buys my lunch? and that I'm paid for eating it? You see it's an advertising stunt. I eat about a dollar's worth of stuff and then they pay me for brushing up trade. After lunch they carry me up to the third floor where my next class is. On the way up we often pass Sam Porter discussing history with the opposite sex. And Sam is a gentleman, too. He'd rather talk with a blonde than with a brunette or a red head. Ask him. Anthony Betten teaches me for the next fifty minutes. Ask Anthony about the time he went tobogganing with one of his girl friends and got a tooth knocked out. Now don't jump to conclusions: He says it wasn't the girl that did it, but a smash-up they had. At the time the class said they didn't be- lieve him. He offered to show the place where the tooth is missingg but the class wasn't interested. We wanted to see the girl. "CHUCK" TEPPER 60 la?K26 ZXZZZZZZiZZ September 2, 1,960 Kenneth Geiwitz recently returned to Rochester after enjoying a very successful season as a bond salesman. "Evelyn, darling," cried Kenneth upon entering his home. He dropped his brief case and rushed over to his wife, who stood looking with a pained expression at the mud he had tracked in. "Evelyn," he repeated throwing his arms around her neck. "They laughed at me when I sent away to the P. D. Q. correspondence school for a course in rock crushing, but now it's a different story. Only this morning Jim stopped me and wanted to know how I obtained such success in sales- manship. Ii "Oh, yeah?" asked his loving wife with her quaint humor. "Well, I need a coupl'a dresses 'n hats so come across." "But Honey, this last trip was a complete failure. This business de- pression-" lil ISI Madame Marie Theresa Colomba Pascuzzi stepped off the boat the other day, and, in answer to our request for a few words from her to our public, she graciously referred us to the encyclopedia. We bowed gratefully and hurried away, proud and awed to have met that great novelist. As always, she was rightg the encyclopedia contained a wealth of informa- tion about her books. We quote directly from one of the passages of her latest treatises on the inner self because we feel it is too beautiful and in- spiring to be rewritten in shortened form. "Life-the beautiful, majestic flower, reaching for the moon." This passage, it is said, is to go down in history as one of the greatest, if not the greatest ever written. Note the beauty of the line. You can just see the flower reaching and reaching. We earnestly hope it will finally get there. At any rate, the latest press dispatches say that that passage has had a corner reserved for it in the Smithsonian Institute for the Blind where its flower can lay its head to rest after several laps of reaching. IEEE Samuel J. Catalfano sat behind his desk in his spacious suite of offices puffing moodily at a fat cigar. Suddenly, he seemed struck by a thought. "Miss Carter!" he bellowed, shifting his cigar to the other side of his mouth. "Yes, Mr. Catalfanof' meekly responded his secretary as she entered. 952 Z 2611223 61 1' S5 95 "Send for a gallon of that new stuff guaranteed to take oil' an inch a daylfrom your waistline," he said, rubbing his portly middle section pen- sive y.

"Arr-r-r-r," roared Samuel J. lil lil IE Michael Terrana has lately taken over the "Modiste" shop on the corner of Fifth Avenue and Broadway, Rochester, and he says that he intends to revolutionize styles in this country. To quote from what he said: "Ze new-what you you say in English ?-waistline, zat is ze word, is to rise on ze right side and lower on ze left side zis year. Madame, she will be charmante! QPersonally, I haven't had the pleasure of meeting Madame, but if he says she'll look 'charmante,' I suppose she will.J And zen, 1 he con- tinued! ze feets of Madame will be covered in ze finest of bare skin. Won- derful, like ze birds, yes? no?" fPersonally, I never thought much of walk- ing barefoot in snow, but if he says it's all right, I suppose it is.l "What you think I have next thought of? Ze hat? She will have a very high crown zis year-and yes, ze material--she is to be, what you call, heavy." tI've often heard of crowns weighing twenty pounds, and these crowns are to be made of heavy material. Poor Madamell At this point, Monsieur Terrana was called away to wait on Mrs. Geiwitz who had just entered the shop. We wonder if she is Madame? D! l!! I! All was quiet in the operating room. The nurses were holding their breaths, probably as a precaution against breathing too much free ether. Maurice Dankoff, M.D., Foo.E., and Ka.Choo, leaned over his patient, his eyes glittering, his hand as steady as a machine oscillating at 250 times per second. Slowly the knife descended, down, down. Then began the dis- section. First he sliced back the skin, then the flesh underneath. He was hacking his way onward into the very depths of his patient. Suddenly, he gave a little cry of joy. His hand slipped into the man and then out again. But was he disappointed? No, for Maurice Dankoff, M.D., Foo.E., and Ka. Choo, had performed another successful operation. He drew forth first the appendix. Then came the lungs, heart, and stomach of his patient. When we saw him do this last, we knew that we were witnessing the most wonder- ful operation ever performed, for what other doctor had ever removed so much and had left a living patient? Maurice came over to me and said, "Well, howja like it?" "Wonderful," we answered. "Will he live?" "Haw, haw," laughed Maurice, "it's a dead body I'm practising on!" Editor's note: This point marks the death of editor from hemmorage. Sszsaerzaaaeszzszxz p 62 517' Ziff' gf' fra!-f 2195195351225 Sadie Says- The other day, dear reader, I was struck for is the word I want "strick- en"J by the most beautiful thought. You'd never guess itg "nil desperan- dum," never despair. Why just imagine all the people over forty who have bad cases of just that malady! It has been estimated that four out of five- oh dear me! We must get on with our story: let's see-oh yes: never de- spair. Take for instance this case of a good friend of a young man I knew, a Mr. Remington, probably unknown to most of you, who used to work on the docks. Not Mr. Remingtong the other one. I mean, not you either--oh dear! I do wish I didn't get so tangled up. Anyway, you know what I mean. Well, when Mr. Remington was just a little baby boy clinging to his mother's skirts, he used to have an unusu- ally loud voice. Time and again, his mother did her worst to stop him from speaking so loudly, but did he give it up as a bad job? Ha! No! Twice no! Instead, he persevered until now he has cultivated a bellow which can easily put a steam whistle to shame. When he presented himself, in all the glory of his voice, before a high school principal, he so dazed that principal with his extraordinary quality, that he was immediately taken on as a member of the faculty. Of course, a day later, when the principal found out what he had done when in this trance, he was going to assign him to the janitor position, but being afraid that this would cause a general strike by the other janitors for ear plugs, he gave him the one and only position of dramatic manager. Now, he ranks among the truly great men our nation has pro- duced: Abraham Lincoln, George Washington, Ring Lardner, Clifford Smith, Samuel J. Catalfano, and Maurice Dankoff. And now, dear readers, "lay this to thy heart and farewell !"
