It may not be known the world over, but it is history Just the same. The history of the class can be divided into four per- In the first period we enteral high school determined to win an educa¬ tion and fit ourselves for the future. Because we had to adjust ourselves to new teachers and new conditions, the year was very trying to ue. A large-i- ber of us left school but the ones who finished this period were stronger in mind and heart, and more determined than ever to finish school During the next period, we began to take more interest in school and to make ourselves known. We gave a large party in the school auditorium. Then «e passed on to the third period. High-light of the affairs of the third period was the Junior-Senior Ban¬ quet, To make this activity an enjoyable one for the Seniors, we worked hard all year. To raise money for this aim we gave two carnivals and sold maga¬ zine subscriptions. But all the while we were looking forward and dreaming of the time when we would be seniors. Another summer rolled by and our dream came true. We were Seniors l Yet this period for which we had yearned was not easy. Most of us had to study hard in order to graduate and at times it seemed as though we could never reach our goal, but reach it we did. Classmates l Let’s not forget FHS and till that she has meant to us l f JUNIOR ACTIVITIES RADITIONALLY, the Juniors of Franklin High this year have been very, very jolly. Their jollity and cheerfulness have been in evidence at school, in clar and out, and so sincere it is that it will be effected in chasing murky clouds away throughout their drives. These one hundred and nineteeen rays of sunshine have had more than ample opportunity to shoulder and dispense their varied responsibilities and they have preformed these with skill and dispatch. The Hallowe ' en Carnival was an unparalleled success— ' everyone had a wonderful time and the gate receipts reached the highest mark in the his¬ tory of the school. A nother record, that of magazine sales, was broken by the untiring labor and perseverance of the group. Entertaining the Seniors with an informal banquet, was the breaking of a precedent of stricter economy in view of the nations ' drama was the only possible course.

I,.... the past twenty years. There has been great political upheaTal The United States and her allies were rio- s in the war which led to the downfall of all foroes opposed to demo- It is believed that the world is on the verge of being Utopian. I am just returning home for the first time since I was assigned to my post as governor of one of the new states in the World Confederation. My plane glides smoothly to the runway, of the large airport at Frankl " ' the city now famous for its unique location. It is the only city in world surrounded by water tjiat is not on an island. This was brought . c by the oonstruotion of the numerous dams. As I step from my plane I • ' m met by one of my old friends. She takes me to dine at one of the state ' s most exclusive clubs, which, strange to say, still retains the name of Panorama Courts. As we take our seats we are a pproaohed b " a man whom I recognize as a former olassmate, Wayne Pendergrass. He informs me that he is now proprietor of this olub. This reoalls old times and I begin to inquire of my friend about the various associations of my schooldays. She tells me the following story: " There are quite a few things outstanding about Franklin. One is the faot that North Carolina ' s largest family lives here. The head of the house is Bobby Carpenter and his wife is the former Delma Edwards. The oity is famous as the home of the Artie explorer, Mericus Mc¬ Coy, His exploration resulted in a dense settlement of the frigid regions because his magnetic oharm started a general migration of feminine admirers to the North Pole. Too, it was the birth place of the famous motion picture stars, George Gray and Leotta Anderson. Their latest picture is " The Life of James Hidgon, Thomas Edison II " . Many of our olassmates are now taking part in the oity affairs. The mayor is now Donald Foster.

FRESHMAN ACTIVITIES CONT The reader may see at a glance that one of our pictures has only boys in it. We may account for it by the fact that the class also has its crop of woman-haters. And also its crop of man-haters. One of the most conspicious members of the class is Jack Nichols, who this year has already been able to incur Mrs. Stewart ' s wrath. Woe unto him l One Oj. the most promising of the female attractions of the class is Mildred Beecoe who this year managed to attract various members of the Junior Class. The class also has its shy creatures. Among these are Ela Moss, Grace lance, and Steve Me Connell. Their oppisites are Faye Dills, Ruth Edwards, and James Stockton. nJ W y L—4-4 X JX -X w V ) £ (1 ( ' — Jr • FRESHMAN CUSS OFFICERS Violet Barnard Mildred Beeco Wardlaw Whitmire Fawkina •.

The first Editor of this new paper entitled The Mountain Echo was George Patton, both able and cap¬ able and the faculty adviser and sponsor was Mrs. Shufford. The next year the paper continued with success under the able co-editors, Kenneth Bryant and Lewis Patton. The paper was sponsored that year by a new teacher at FHS, Miss Gloria Reagan. In 1940- 4l, the paper continued under the editorship of Kenneth Bryant who was supplanted in the latter part of the year. This term the club had as sponsor Miss Reagan who had continued on at FHS. This year the paper entered its fourth year of publication with Sol Sand¬ ers, Editor and Mary Frances Page as Associate Editor. The club ' s activities were under the direction of a new sponsor, Miss Jewel Vandiver. The club and many of the students were expressing the hope at the end of the term that it would be possible to publish the paper despite the war and other handicaps .
