The long awaited day in Sep¬ tember, 1939, had arrived. This was the day we started to sthool! We hesitated a moment at the door, clutching our new lunch kits and pencils, just a little frightened at the prospect of even half a day without Mother. But the teacher was really just a second mother; she always listened to our tales of woe and dried our tears when we fell and skinned our knees. But she, like mother, scolded when we slid down the clay banks. After the jumbled ABC’s had fallen into place and cou ' .d be recited almost without thinking, our awk¬ ward little hands tried placing them so they spelled our names. The feeling of self-confidence lessened when we approached the numbers. Counting them wasn ' t so bad, but when we were asked to put two of them together, then our trouble started. In the fourth grade we received a dog-eared, orange-backed book which took us on our first journey to distant lands. Of course, we all remember the picture of the little boy and his shadow and where the sun was when at its zenith. Tn front of the class, we could say the multiplication tables just like that, but at our desks, a piece of paper still came in handy when multiplying. In fifth grade we began American history with George Washington’s cherry tree and Abe Lincoln’s rail¬ splitting. Of course, before that, we learned about Co ' umbus and his wife, Nina, no that was one of his ships. Well, anyway, he found America. Having laid our foundations, we sailed through the remaining years of grammar school. We were be¬ ginning to feel grown-up. Most of the girls were lightly applying lipstick and not so lightly focusing their attention on the opposite sex, while the boys pretended not to notice the girls’ giggles and veiled glances. The next year began the big four years . They (that is our superiors) said we were green freshmen, but of course, we didn’t think so. Although we did stare in wide-eyed wonder as they, the lofty seniors, drove to school in cars or walked past talking in the puzzling terms of Macbeth. This was the beginning of torturous algebra classes and hilarious civics classes. Algebra was very contradictory to what we had learned in first grade. There we had learned to write letters and count numbers; now we were counting letters. Those girls we saw walking around wearing dresses with plackets on the wrong side and complaining of stomachaches weren’t people from the planet Mars, they were just Home Ec girls learning the hard way. Our fears of an impending Indian attack proved groundless when we discovered those painted faces belonged to FHA boys being initiated to the tune of corncobs around their necks. “Friends, Romans, Countrymen, lend me your ears,” — no, it wasn’t a displaced Roman; it was just the sophomores learning Julius Caesar. Those were the good old biology (it’s really bugology, hut of course the teacher insisted we call it biology) days when, as we looked through the microscope, we were amazed at the curious monstrosity we beheld there. But as we amateur Pasteurs were about to call our teacher’s attention to our “find,” we shame¬ facedly discovered the adjustment wasn’t quite right and we were looking at our own eye. The fall of ' 49 brought two new faculty members to FHS, Mr. and Mrs. Beck. Sammy brought the hand while Frances ushered in the Mother of all languages, Latin. While Latin students were twinkling like little stars, shorthand students were wondering if Mary would ever eat a meal in the train. Even after two years of Latin, the first Latin phrase the students learned, Ego amo te, was more widely used than any other. Any person who glanced out his window and saw a junior approaching, suddenly wasn’t at home, because he knew the forthcoming question would be, “Won ' t you please buy a magazine subscription or a box of Christmas cards?” This question was asked very diligently by the Juniors, because those Seniors really looked hungry. The banquet, with its theme, “Hitch Your Wagon to a Star,” was lovely and the theme was carried out in the eyes of all those present. The banquet proved to be the screen test of all rising stars, for cameras ground away on the great epic, “The Junior-Senior Banquet of 1950.” At last — dignified Seniors!!! But it was hard to act dignified when we were having the time of our lives. Even with the headaches brought on by Macbeth, bookkeeping, Latin, and chemistry, we still had time to cheer the football team through an unusually victorious season. We really began to feel like seniors when we gathered in study hall and 1 eard the opening strains of the “March From Aida.” We became more or less impatient with our feet; they just wouldn’t keep time to the music. But this was just the beginning of that final march down the aisle! Our years at Franklin High School have been hard but happy ones. Now the time has come for us to say good-bye to Franklin High and take our places in the world of tomorrow. This world, which a few years ago seemed so vague, now holds promise for those of us who seek the higher things in life. No matter where we go, or what we do in life, the memories of Franklin High School and its faculty will always dwell in our hearts. By BARBARA GRIBBLE and CHRISTINE HALL 1951 Sc eruor As we glanced down the street of the rapidly growing metropolis of Franklin, North Carolina, we saw a new atomic eight careening from side to side. Just as expected, it crashed headlong into a telephone pole. And to our surprised eyes out crawled John Alsup. co-owner of John Alsup- Paul Seagle taxi fleet. As we watched the wrecker from Myers and Duvall Motor Company haul the demolished taxi away, John invited us to a party which he and his wife, the former Julia Hunnicutt, were giving at the new ultra modern country club, run by Mr. Leonard Echols and his wife, the former Sue Howard. As we strolled down the sidewalk after saying good-bye to John, a huge neon sign blinked at us which read, “Norton and Conley Radio Shop.” Yes, Harold and Dudley were Franklin’s television distributors. On down the street we passed the Norton, Norton, Norton, Norton and Norton syndicate which was run by Jack Norton, Caroll Norton, Betty Norton ‘ Bo”Norton, and Betty Lou Norton. Their huge gambling casino on Lake Emory and horse racing park near the bowling alleys owned by Anna Jean Allen and Verna Buchanan were doing a tremendous business. Bill Teague, Emily Faye Parker, and Mary Sue Potts were squandering their vast fortunes at the card tables and roulette wheels. After passing the syndicate we came upon the Stiles Theatre, co-owned by Doyle and Martha Stiles, which was co-starring Betty Lou Constance and Bill Ramsey in The Big Hangover, the current murder thriller produced by Wayne Sorrells. Noticing that it was growing late we hailed a taxi driven by none other than Margaret Wal- droop. Just before we stepped into the taxi we saw the notorious gangsters John Phillips, Elma Bingham, Francis Stevens, and Una Crawford, being chased by the first woman patrolman of N. C., Nancy Byrd, and Sheriff Charles Thomas. From all information gathered, they had robbed the First National Bank which had as its executives Bessie McConnell, Lucille Jacobs, Jackie Evitt, Christine Dills, and Clara Maude Gibson. After all the excitement our taxi took us to our hotel which was owned by Lucille Jennings and Anne Teague. The doorman, Ted Stamey, directed us to the elevator. To our surprise, the elevator girl was Clara Jane Taylor. As we gjt off we met four of our former classmates get¬ ting on. Cleta Belle Tallent, Cora Mae Cable, Francis Fouts, and Jessie McConnell were attend¬ ing the Western North Carolina Mayors Convention. After getting ready for the party and glancing over the evening’s newspaper, which featured the National Girl Basketball Champions, Grayce Setser, Betty Lee Moore, Carolyn Bryson, Con- naree Nolen, Virginia Moses, Birdie Sue Carpenter, and Beverly Christy, we then went down to the lobby. On the bulletin board we noticed that Eugene Gray was the guest speaker of the mayor’s convention. Below that we also noticed that Jane Crawford was lecturing on the ad¬ vantages of recreation in the home. W e now boarded our special limousine which took us to the country club. After leaving our wraps with the butler, Calvin Patterson, we heard soft music coming from the Paradise Room. Charles Cabe and his orchestra which was composed of Dorlis Sutton, the singer; Wayne Pipes, the drummer; Agnes Carpenter, the pianist; Max Cabe, playing the saxophone; Betty Roper, clarinet player; Owen Cabe, who played the bass fiddle; and Daniel Henson, the trumpet player. It was indeed one of the better orchestras of the land. After being offered something to drink by Jewel Reece, soon followed by Barbara Gribble, we then accepted a drink offered bv Freda Elliott, which we discovered was satisfying — water. At this moment the star end of the Franklin Professional football team, Richard Mashburn, approached us. He was being followed for autographs by Freda Tallent, Margaret Roland, Faustine Holland, and Norma Crawford. After he escaped from them he began to tell us of his highly successful team. A few of his teammates were Jack Mashburn, Duanne Cruse, and Edwin Hall. After dancing with Catherine and Othello Cabe, we then departed from the party which was still in full swing. When we got to our hotel the desk clerk, Barbara Holland, told us that Bernice Gregory, the hotel switchboard operator, had a call for us from our boss. When we con¬ tacted Bernice we found out that we were needed back at our jobs immediately. The next morning we boarded our train back to Podunk. Christine Hall and Martha Howard served us our breakfast and then we were on our way. After a quick trip, we got back safely to our jobs as garbage collectors only to find com¬ plaints from Luanne Gibson, Mariann Sherrill, Nell Baldwin and Carolyn Nothstein, Podunk’s leading social figures, that their garbage pails were overrunning.
