Competent; sane ; efficient; zealous. M. D. BILLINGS Salutamus Pa e Two Page Three THE LAUREL LEAF FOREWORD We have ventured herein to produce a picture of life at Franklin High School, a sketch of our work and study. Years will come when we shall forget the lessons learned here, when our friends are far away and our diplomas in some attic trunk. Let us, then, dust off the old an¬ nual, and live again the days that we have endeavored to portray here.

Society ’26, ’27; Assistant Editor of Annual; Dramatic Club ' 29; Vice-President of Class ' 29. Agnes is one of the jolly and generous members of our class.

Dorothy Rebecca Stewart “DOT” “Quiet companionship and fun.’’ S. S. S. Society ' 27, ’28; Dramatic Club ' 29; Glee Club ' 29. “Dot” is what you would call a “good all-round friend.” This is shown by the many friends she has acquired since coming from Ackworth, Georgia. In addition, she is a good sport and never meddles with the affairs of others. Martha Flora Talley “FLOSS” “He is gentle that doth gentle deeds.” Lanier Society ' 26, ’27; Glee Club ’29.

Page Thirteen Emma Ruth Slagle “To be frank and sincere is ray greatest fau.t of all.” Dramatic Club ’29. Ruth is the type of girl you would like to have around when in trouble or in desperate need of aid. There’s about her, too, a certain reserve and dignity which commands your atten¬ tion and respect. Nancy Caroline Justice “NANCE” ' Ye study to be quiet and to do your own business.” S. S. S. Society ’24, ' 25, ’26; Dra¬ matic Club ’29. Nancy is quiet, dignified, and studi¬ ous.

Society ’26, ’27; Secretary of Class ’26, ’27; President of Class ’28; Dramatic Club ’29; Library Staff ’29. Neatness personified is “Shorty.” Don’t let her decieve you by her quiet ways because we know she is jolly and mischievous. Her popularity is easily shown by the offices she has held in our class. Good luck to you “Shorty.” George Andrew Jones “I) .J.” " One never knows what he’ll do next.” Lanier Society ' 26; Football ’27, ’28; Dramatic Club ’29; Assistant Business Manager of Annual ’29.

Margaret Adelaide McGuire “TWIN” “Her fingers witched the chords they passed along.” President of class ’26; Lanier So¬ ciety ’26, ' 27; Dramatic Club ’29; Glee Club ’29; Editor in Chief of Annual ’29. With a resolute and dependable nature, based on ground work of assurance, Margaret never allows trivi¬ alities to prevent her from carrying out her policies. Her ability is shown by the fact that we elected her Editor in Chief of our Annual. Page Fifteen Mary Sue Cunningham “MURSUE” “Her very frowns are fairer far, Than smiles of other maidens are.” Lanier Society ’26, ’27; Dramatic Club ’29; Assistant Editor of Annual ’29; Library Staff ’29. The fact that Mary Sue is the smallest in our class doesn’t mean that she is the least noticable. It is very different from that. All of us love her and she seems to have a smile that makes life worth while. Dixie Nell Hudson “SUPER-SIX” “Enthusiasm is the genuis of sin- cereity, and truth accomplishes no victories without it.” Lanier Society ’26, ’27; Glee Club ’29; Library Staff ’28.

Find him when he isn’t teasing and you will do more than his school mates have done. He has a good word for everybody, thereby making lots of friends. Alex Lee Setser “SETSCREW” “He argues for pleasure rather than principle.” Setscrew can say more witty things than you would ever expect from one of his size. However, not all of his qualities tend toward the ridiculous, for he has plenty of good sense and sound judgment. Laura Belle Dalrymple “DUMP “Life is a jist and all things show it, 1 thought so once and now I know it. " Dramatic Club ' 29; Library Staff ’29.

Society ' 26, ’27; President of Class ’27; Secretary of Class ' 28, ' 29: Dra natic Club ’29. Charm, quietness, and great ability go to make up Mary.

Elmon Marion Teague “MUTT " “Though modest on his unembar¬ rassed brow, Nature has written ‘Gentleman’.” S. S. S. Society ’26, ' 27; Dramatic Club ' 29; Treasurer of Class ' 28, ' 29; Football ’29; Business Manager of Annual ' 29. “Mutt” is the dependable type of boy.

Besides being an athlete she takes a great interest in the opposite sex. Irvin Floyd Straine ‘Who can wrestle against the sleep?” Lanier Society 76, 77; Clee Club ’29. Although Irvin’s weakness is sleep¬ ing in classes he manages nevertheless not to flunk. He never shows his temper but is always good natured and jolly. Here’s hoping success comes as easy as sincere friendship. Lora Louise Talley “For work is a good investment and always pays.” S. S. S. Society 76, 77; Glee Club 79.

Mary Angeline Berry “My tongue within my lips, 1 reign, For who talks much must talk in vain.” Home Economics Club 79. The sweetness of Mary’s face be¬ speaks the gentleness of her character. She is very qniet but has a lovable disposition. She must keep her tem¬ per well under cover for we have never discovered it. All of us wish you happiness, Mary.

She has many friends is one who believes that in order to have friends one must be one. Wc are sure the future holds much in store for “Liz. " Tin CLASS HISTORY There was a patter of feet along the street and the murmer of many small voices. What could be so important this September morn? Why were so many little children excited? Cause enough I should think! We, the class of ’29, weree that morning beginning our pilgrimage to the shrine of knowledge. Our way was a long and difficult one with many pitfalls. The road led through beautiful valleys called the Primaries; these we crossed happily together. But after leaving the valleys our way led us across the rugged mountain ranges known as Grammar grades. Here, along the rough paths of Arithmetic and Georgraphy, many of the faint hearted fell by the wayside but the sturdier pilgrims marched on. It was a happy group that descended the last slope to Examination Harbor and happier still when they received their passports to embark on the voyage across the High School ocean. This four year voyage is the most interesting part of the journey. Prof. A. L. Bramlett was High Admiral of the fleet. There was some confusion on the flag ship English. She had three captains in succession the third being Mrs. Franks who still commands the English even with Port Graduation in sight. For nine long months the fleet sailed on Freshman Sea, but at last reached Vacation Island. Here Prof. G. L. Houk was put in command of the fleet. We became acquainted with Mr. Houk during the last part of our journ ey across the Grammar Grade mountains and everyone had faith in his unsurpassed ability to perform the duties of High Admiral of this fleet. Leaving Vacation Island we sailed along Sophomore Roads for nine more months. During these months we were saved from being dashed to pieces against the Latin Rocks by our capable pilot, Miss Mozely. We spent three months in Port Summer, where many remained when the fleet again sailed. Our commander led us directly from Port Summer into Junior Straits. Here we found the sailing rough. And it was here that our faith in our commander was justified. For nothing but his indomitable spirit and skillfu management could have ever led us through the maze of hidden reefs and sunken rocks. However, he had the straits well chartered and with seeming ease he steered us through the hazy course of Algebra and and with an ever watchful eye he directed us through the dense fogs of Physical Georgraphy. May our praise for our Admiral ring forever! During our passage through the Straits several of our beloved fellow pilgrims were swept overboard. I have heard since that a few of them were rescued and that they are still working toward their destination, namely, the Shrine of Knowledge. After spending three months at Port Rest we plunged into the turbu¬ lent waters of the Senior Sea. This last days of our pilgrimage was the most difficult of all. W e sailed in the very teeth of a strong History gale and Geometry waves waves swept our decks. Not only this but we barely missed being dashed to splinters on the French Rocks. Forked tongues of Physics tore our canvas to ribbons, yet we pulled the ropes as one man with strength born ot despair and slowly but surely we won our way toward our journey’s end. THE LAUREL LEAF CLASS POEM ’Tis eventide, the day is done, High school days o’er—life beckons on, No poignant words hath power to tell, The saddness of today’s farewell. We scan the backward path and sigh, Life’s hills ahead loom mountains high. Dear faculty, each one true blue Should we succeed, all praise to you. Yours was the firm, but gentle hand, That pointed to a promised land, Yours too, the head and heart amain That set us new goals to attain. The lighted torch held high by fame May someday blazon Franklin’s name, The keeper of the future scroll Some name for ’29 unroll Bright future stars, illume our sky, Adieu, farewell, to Franklin High. If down the dim and distant years, We meet with dangers, pitfalls, snares, Keep the faith and falter never, True to White and Gold forever, Let the light from our example shine, O’er those who follow class’29. —Mary Sue Cunningham 4 Page Twenty two 1 929 CLASS SONG (Tune—Bonny Blue Flag) We sing of power and glory, We sing of might and fame; We sing to the class of ’29, Illustrious is it’s name. With pride we march along, With pride we lift our heads on high, As members of this throng. Chorus: Hurrah! Hurrah! for the class of ’29 Three cheers for the Senior Class, The class of ’29. The future is before us, We’re ready for the fray, Our hearts beat high with hopes of youth, We face the world today. Yet we will never falter, For the years we’ve spent with you, Have given us, dear Franklin High, The will to dare and do. —Margaret McGuire. Page Twenty-three CLASS PROPHECY It was a pretty little ball, round, smooth, and clear as a crystal with a tiny object in the center that scintilated like a diamond of the purest variety. I turned it over and over in my palms admiring it, as I did so— Presently a curious sensation came creeping over me. I began to float upward. “Goodness me,“I muttered, “I must be a bird.But flying doesn’t make a bird dizzy,” I reasoned. “Perhaps I’m Alice. I can’t be her though for this isn’t wonderland. It’s wonder air. Then I stopped to think. “Well, what are you doing here?” Some one asked me in a far away voice. “Oh, nothing,” I murmured, without opening my eyes. “Who are You?” “Who am I indeed?” Idiot I’m the greatest aviator of the world. I flew from the earth to Mars. This is Mars.” “Oh, then you’re Lindbergh.” “Lindbergh! Why, he never did anything but fly across the Atlantic ocean. Any nit-wit could do that.” With an effort I opened my eyes. There before me covered with medals, stood my old class mate George Jones. “My wife and I spend our summers here,” he told me. “Your wife! I didn’t know you were married.” “Yes, I married a famous astronomer, Elizabeth Meadows. Come take a look at the earth through our telescope.” Elizabeth turned the telescope an angle to the right and I gazed down on the earth. I found myself looking into a theatre. On the screen, a red haired, pink cheeked, little sprite was holding the audience spell bound. “I didn’t know that color could be shown up on the screen,” I said. “Phil McCollum, the famous movie director found a way to do that.” “Clara Bow’s just as peppy as ever,” I said admiringly, watching the figures on the screen. “Are you blind as well as dumb? That isn’t Clara Bow. That is Agnes Smith!” Grant Place in New York City came next into my view. In an attic studio a group of artists and musicians, Margaret McGuire, Mary Snyder, Nancy Patton, Mildred Cozad and Nell Hudson were giving a studio party for Irvin Straine, the famous critic. The scene was shifted and in a poverty stricken attic, at an old bat¬ tered desk which was covered with returned poems sat Lora Talley, typing away at her masterpiece. In the exclusive residential section, I saw a magnificient mansion: the home of Thomas Henson, multi-millionaire, and his wife, formerly Gen- I’age Twentv-fcur nett Mallonee. Mr. Henson bought the filling station at the Georgia line and made his millions there. The telescope was switched around again. On an island, I saw Vir¬ ginia McGuire and a handsome King on a dias under a cocoanut tree. They were attended by a group of natives. The next scene that came into my line of vision was the town of Franklin N. C. It was four o’clock. School was out. In the auditorium of the High School building, Professor Alex Setser was giving a lecture to his teachers, Pearl McCoy, Mary Perry, Helen Enloe, Laura Bell Dal- rymple and Ruth Slagle. The telescope was lowered to Washington, D. C. The Supreme Court was in session. The judge, Elmon Teague was trying Wilma Hall for grand larceny and Mary Sue Cunningham for running over and killing the President’s pet dog. In the White House whom did I see but Dorothy Stewart. She was awarding a medal to Helen Jones for being the first woman to circum¬ navigate the globe. In a moonlit garden I saw Nancy Justice returning an engagement ring to Count Sargos. “Well, the entire class of ’29 has made a success, that is, all except- Again that curious feeling came stealing over me. “I’m hypnotized, I know I’m hypnotized,” I muttered. “You’ll be worse than hypnotized if you don’t give me my aggy.” I opened my eyes—I had been asleep with my head on the table. My little brother had awakened me. In my hands I held an agate that I had been admiring before I fell asleep.

We finally found Miss Mozely to be our home room teacher and with her help and that of Mr. Houk, our esteemed professor, and the rest of our teachers, we managed our freshman year with ease. Our Sophomore year was looked forward to with pleasure for after all we had gotten through one year of High School and might be Seniors yet! We were very pleased to find that Mr. Houk was still our superintendent and Miss Mozely our home room teacher again. In our Junior year we feel almost as big as the Seniors for they are only one grade ahead of us. This year several of our teachers have been changed and we are very pleased to find them just as nice as the ones we had before. Mr .Houk is our superin¬ tendent and we have great hopes of his still being when we are Seniors—if w r e ever arc—because we feel as if he is a part of High School for us. It is with great hope that we look forward to being THE class of 1930. CATHERINE FRANKS Page Thirty TTTvJTi E L|A l REL LEAF inn SOPHOMORE CLASS OFFICERS President. ..Hilton Callowav Vice-President.

There was greater enthusiasm among the players and the student body. Football is now the leading sport in Franklin and is becoming a great sport in all Western North Carolina. The team from Franklin turn ed back the strongest opposition in great style the first of the season but mid-season brought a slump due to the “flu.” The end of the season found the boys in good shape. They handed the strong Cullowhee Normal team two drubbings in the course of a week’s time. The team can well boast of not a single defeat at home. W. B. KESLER, Coach.

However they were defeated in the first game and in every clash that followed they seemed only as broken bottles in their opponents path. The games opened fast and at times victory seemed in Franklin’s grasp but always the opposing team took a spurt and left them far behind.
