CLASS HISTORY In the year 1941 the good ship “School Days,” commanded by the class of ’53. embarked upon her journey across the Sea of Knowledge. The class of ’53 was determined to make a name for itself. This excruciating voyage was to last twelve long and tedious years before the eagerly anticipated destination, Graduation, was attained. j° r ew years, smooth sailing was enjoyed because the waters were lulled by an abundance of recreation, and new friends, although our speed was sometimes checked by clouds of doubt as blown about by tempests and gales of mid-term and final tests, we oc¬ casionally veered off our chartered course. After almost 8 years of smooth sailing we arrived at the long anticipated Freshman Harbor for replenishing our supply of inspiration furnished by the addition of new crew members. However, even with the inspiration furnished by these members, we almost turned back to the Land of Ignorance several times because we began to have visions of the many trials and tribu¬ lations which were to overtake us before our journey was completed. After enjoying a three months’ vacation and somewhat strengthened by billows of learn¬ ing, we sailed into port and dropped our anchor firmly in the harbor of Sophomore Island. Here we found a variation from the regular routine which we had been following. We found time to participate in various clubs which were now being organized by our old standbys, the teachers, who were our constant companions during our twelve year voyage. As much as we hated to leave Sophomore Island, we knew that we must set sail once more so that we might complete another milestone in our journey before the seasonal typhoons of uneasiness began to blow upon us and interrupt our voyage to Junior Peninsula. After a small delay we weighed anchor and the good ship “School Days” turned its prow once more into the seething waves of the Sea of Knowledge. Following another three months’ vacation, we again turned to our regular routine which we were to follow for nine more months. One cold, dreary day our lookout called out, “Land Ahoy.” We all craned our necks to get our first glimpse of Junior Peninsula. Upon our arrival at Junior Peninsula we were notified that we would have to begin work immediately of the Captain’s dinner to be given in honor of the Seniors of ’52. How we lasted through this and other things, we’ll never know. If there wasn’t one thing to be done there were two. Clouds of doubt and tidal waves of misfortunes poured over us, but somehow we pulled through. After several months of hard work, we were ready for the banquet and it was very nice. There was eating, singing, and dancing and a good time was enjoyed by all. It was very hard to leave Junior Peninsula but we dried our tears and departed once again upon the turbulent waters of the Sea of Knowledge, this time to complete the last knot of our twelve year journey to Senior Land and the port of Graduation. By this time, we were all be- ginnig to feel quite important and we doubt if anyone really played his part as a dignified Seniors should have. The following months were full of hard work, but we were inspired by the fact that soon our journey would be over. At last we came to Senior Land where we were cordially welcomed and given a great banquet. A short while later we sailed to the port of Graduation which was a most welcome sight because we knew that we were now ready to reap the rewards for which we had worked so hard. Our hearts were almost bursting with pride as we marched single-file up the deck of the good ship “School Days,” for this was the greatest occasion of our twelve year voyage. We were going to receive our diplomas. After receiving these diplomas, we marched across the deck, down the gangplank, and onto the ground. We all turned for a last look at the ship “School Days,” which had been our home for almost twelve years, and then turned our footsteps toward our personal goals in the wide world, each and every one of us hoping that we might leave our mark behind us when we were gone. We knew that all of us would make good in this world because of the excellent training received by each individual while on our voyage. We hoped that the class of ’53 would leave a lasting impression on all those who knew us and would be remembered as we set out to make our lives worthwhile to all. No one knows where our footsteps will turn but we’re sure that we will never forget our days on board the good ship “School Days,” at Franklin High. By: Jack Love Nancy Ramsey Kenneth McMeanc CLASS PROPHECY Recently we attended the premier of the motion picture “F. H. S. Class of 1953.” As we recount for your benefit the scenes of this extraordinary production, we desire that you keep in mind that twenty years have elapsed since fate took a hand in dispersing nearly one hundred and twenty seniors after they had received high school diplomas. With your permission we retell the story of the film. The lights dim as the music swells to its fullest volume then falls to a clear tremor. By way of explanation, the Narrator tells his audience of the uniqueness of this particular cinema. For the first time in its history, M. G. M. presents an account of individuals who at¬ tended the same school and who, the same year, wore the traditional caps and gowns. He warns of the some¬ what exaggerated portions of the drama, which you will later notice, but entreats you not to forget that this particular example of American youth was a remarkable lot, capable of developing into extremely remarkable adults. Needless to say, the co-stars are all former class members who have sharpened their acting talent under the careful coaching of a professional of the art, Laura Jean Huggins. This picture is under the direction of Lee Poindexter, Jr., assisted by Joyce Baldwin and Annie Ruth Deafl- The music is composed and directed by Bryan Hurst and Ann Hays, who have lent their professional services. It is to be asserted that names of girls are former names, used for the sake of easy remembrance on the part of the audience. As one’s thoughts naturally go back to classroom days, so does the first scene. This one class boasts of a satisfactory number of teachers in both high school and elementary grades. Willene Moses patiently explains to first graders that 2 plus 3 does not “equal 6, while Myra Crawford just as patiently explains that x plus y equals z to an ap¬ parently intelligent high school class. Our film also looks in on Joan Brendle, Carlien Childers, Mary Gar¬ ner, Thelma Ledford, and Cora Ann Queen, teachers of various grades in various schools. Not to be left out of the teaching profession scene is Jean Duvall, who shoots a few sample basketball goals as she explains physical education. Nancy Ramsey holds an honorary position as a teacher supervisor. If we carry our search for teachers into institutions of higher learning, we encounter Mildred Gregory—a mil¬ lion pardons! We mean Professor Gregory. Nor would the university picture be ' complete without Jack Love’s capabilities. He explains to us the enlightening theory of nuclear fission. Another well-known figure in college organizations is Willa Mae Cabe, a librarian. She ac¬ counts for her choosing this work by having taken the high school course of study, Library Science. The setting for the next scene is a massive football stadium. Bryan Hurst’s band strikes up a lively tune as Pro Carroll Keener intercepts a blown kiss from some blue-eyed blond high in the stadium. Word has got around that she is the former Shirley Dean. We hear pleasant words about “Good Ole Oursides” players whose familiar names, John Henry, George Brown, and Sammy Henderson, ring memory bells. If you should get hungry, popcorn perfected ex¬ clusively by Wayne Wiggins can be bought. This pop¬ corn is a thirst quencher and has made something over a million dollars for Mr. Wiggins. The proceeds of the popcorn go to the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to School Children by Teachers, of which Mr. R. L. Cabe is a dynamic advocate. While our thoughts dwell on the lucrative subject, Mr. Max Phillips is not to be deprived of all due ac¬ clamation. He has put his mechanical ingenuity to practical use by devising a back scratcher found to give much relief to the natural phenomenon of an itching back. Mr. John Roper, prominent in the business world as a financial expert, advises that this is a fit product for sound investment. The previous athletic scene is not to be confused with another which is enshrouded with similar en¬ thusiasm. The place of action is a certain New York baseball diamond. Grady Corbin shows a muscular right arm and some expert timing in the successive striking out of his opponents. Some more professional athletes are Bernice Curtis, a softball champion and a lady wrestler, Martha Jones. Familiar names echo from probing in the business world. Kenneth McMeans, after winning world typing contests continually has accepted a position with Rem¬ ington-Rand, Inc. Betty Sue Guyer, Lucille Pickens, Barbara Brendle, Juanita Evans, Sally Mae Guffey, and Jessie Lee Welch hold such position as bookkeepers, stenographers, and secretaries in well known business establishments. Clyde Kinsland is an accountant. Juanita Reece is private secretary to Paul Killian, optical dealer. In the field of research, Howard Smith has won pre¬ eminence by developing a curious balm for the nuisance of chiggers. At Dupont Lonnie Crawford is pioneering a new batch of theories concerning engineering. Another scene is the bustling main business office of Mr. Dickie Raby, the real estate executive. Through the services of such efficient secretaries as Peggy Soles- bee, Shirley Cloer, Mildred Corbin, and Virginia Frank¬ lin, Mr. Raby has achieved much success and exerts great influence in certain social circles. He gets much assistance with his momentous tasks from Laura Lyle who graduated from the position of the efficient secre¬ tary to that of assistant manager long ago. Before the camera moves on, Mr. Raby has a caller whom we recognize, in spite of the small mustache, as Mr. Dennis Arvey, a chain hotel owner. Whether the two were able to negotiate a deal is left purely to the imagination, for the formation of a new scene begins. We find ourselves in the street viewing a green object high in the sky. No, that isn’t a relic of prehistoric days we see. It’s the space ship that we’ve been hearing about that makes the daily trip to the moon. Joe Phillips is the pilot and Dixie Nell Myers is the stewardess. Fastness is their motto. Crew members are Grover Shuler, Elmon Vanhook, Jim Williamson, and Lee Roy Peek. It is posible for us to view another space monster. This one, with Bill Morrow at the controls, is making trial excursions to Mars. Jimmy Kinsland is getting the full blame for helping develop such an atrocious con¬ traption. The next scene is in Madison Square Garden. As you hear the vehement protestations of speaker Grace Br own, National Party Chairman, you recognize this is a po¬ litical rally. Senator Jack Kusterer is there to handle the necessary diplomacy. Patty Lou Phillips, with the United Nations, is on hand to explain foreign policy. We hear the names of Roberta Snyder, a good will ambassador to somewhere, and Charles Swafford, chair- CLASS PROPHECY man of some kind of committee, mentioned. Too, we hear businessman L. A. Moore praised for his party affiliation. The dissenting voices you hear are those of Evelyn Dean and Selma Ledford, housewives, pro¬ testing against the rising cost of living. Since this scene scratches a little too deeply into our nonpartisan views, we quickly leave but only to get into deeper trouble. From the uniform J. D. Hastings wears, we assume he must be a cop. He is dragging Thomas Jones by the ear to the police station on charges of running a traffic light. Mr. Jones pleads not guilty and is promptly acquitted by the humane judge, Helen Bradley. The court stenographer is Mrs. Jean Moore. In another part of the police station Deputy Sheriff Betty Bradley has just received a call from F. B. I. Field Agent Barbara Jean Pannell to be on the alert for a reckless desperado. Deputy Bradley sets her law en¬ forcement machine into action by giving this bit of information to Sherlock Ray Henry, who buckles on a service revolver. Our conclusion is that the political rally would be much the safer. Speaking of uniformed public men, the Army con¬ sists of some high brass personnel in Major Harley Hen¬ derson and Bobby Henry. We are able to spy inside the Pentagon as General Charles McCall casually gives emergency orders. Army Intelligence has a valuable asset in Carroll Childers’ espionage network. Dressed in a trim WAC uniform, Shelby Jean Britton explains her job as comander of the Army’s servicewomen. The Navy has several familiar old salts eligible for retirement in a few years. Bill Mason, Edwin Nolen, and Bob Moore, tired of roaming, will exchange the seven seas for solid ground. The Air Corps’ dare devil, Carl Swanson, is at pres¬ ent exchanging his wings for the good ole farm back home. We are able to witness a ceremony in his honor on the steps of the Capitol in Washington. Vocalist Sue Williams sings a song of hero praise after which Anna Laura Shepherd, famed orator, tells of his deeds of bravery in a two-hour speech. The newspaper syn¬ dicate’s top man Tommy Raby with his staff of news hungry reporters is on hand to give the historical oc¬ casion all due publicity. Those who have a pencil and little black book in hand are Winnie Bates, Betty Brendle, Barbara Mann, and Barbara Stiles. The next scene is the spacious living room of the Mack Jones’ home. His wife, the former Mertis Angel, is engaged in her favorite past time, portrait painting. We hear her husband read from his newspaper that Betty Clark has recently won an international knitting contest. The new automatic television set turns itself on in time for us to see Bob Hope’s successor, Emory Crawford, crack a saying of the wise old owl. The dial could be turned to Betty Jean McCall’s gospel quartet program; but we prefer to watch cowgirl Geneva Allen, the idol of millions of little girls, in her smooch’um, shoot’um-up serials. We are also able to share a bit of the homey atmos¬ phere as provided by the good ladies who have kept the home fires brightly burning during all these years. They are Frankabelle Gibson, Mattie Jo Hurst, Louise Mor¬ gan, and Drucilla Mason. In the emergency ward of a large hospital. Dr. Jo Ann Wilhide gives explicit directions to nurse Opal Keener to prepare a hypodermic for an expected patient. The patient wheeled in by nurse Joyce Welch and Joyce Henry is Arland McCall, a window washer for the Empire State building. Apparently he had stepped back to admire his work, but luckily he was no higher than the first floor. We switch to the kitchen in time to see dietitian Nancy Cabe plan a deliciously tempting meal. Julia Moody, by combining brain and beauty, figur¬ atively speaking, has come into ownership of the Powers Modeling Agency. Unav Sanders supervises the ward¬ robe details. The beautiful models are Betty Moffitt, Eoline Nicholson, Louise Ray, Wilma Renshaw and Evelyn Ray. Fashion Designer Mary Etta Shook, late of Paris, has some ultra-modern ideas about what is to be considered in vogue. In the last few years agriculture has undergone drastic revolutionary changes. Charlie and Junior Cabe, farming specialists, give some very interesting talks and demon¬ strations to prove that these changes are toward a better end for the farmer. In the last scene Bob Bingham, chicken expert and owner of International Frozen Foods Markets, displays his salesmanship ability toward a hesitant customer, Virginia Dills. After being confronted by persuasive measures of Betty Tippett and Minnie Lee Shepherd, associates of Mr. Bingham, the customer finally decides that better bargains cannot be found elsewhere. Once again the music swells and as it falls we hear the voice of the Narrator as he brings to a conclusion the motion picture “F. H. S.

By: Ann Hays (Tune: Save the Last Dance For Me) HALLOWEEN KING AND QUEEN SHIRLEY CLOER EMORY CRAWFORD LAST WILL AND TESTAMENT We the Senior Class of 1953, after many worries and headaches, have drawn this our last Will and Testament in which we leave to all underclassmen, much to the consternation of the faculty, a portion of our standards and ideals which we hope will be of great benefit to our successors.
