FROM THE LIBRARY OF A D The Yearbook Staff of Franklin High School Franklin, North Carolina Presents The Laurel Leaf Nineteen Hundred and Sixty-One Foreword The panther, which is the symbol of the Franklin High School athletic teams, possesses two traits that the graduates of our school should consider carefully. First, the panther is an excellent climber, always working for higher ground, and never satisfied when stationed below another animal. If we then are to be successful, we must always have the desire to excel and to climb higher. Second, although the panther is an animal of courage, it will seldom attack another animal or a person. We, as Americas youth, would do well to observe this particular trait of the panther. If we are to move forward, we must spend our time working for the better¬ ment of our fellow man, rather than attacking him. We, the LAUREL LEAF Staff of nineteen hundred sixty-one, would have our classmates to observe the ways of the panther and to start climbing to higher ground. 2 Contents Page 9 .

We, the LAUREL LEAF Staff of 1961, feel that the teachers have imparted to us many important lessons of life. So, as we walk through the doors of Franklin High School for the last time, we feel that we have been well prepared in the development of harmonious relationships with our fellow man and have been provided with an academic challenge with which to face life. Therefore, may the panther, our school’s athletic sym¬ bol, always have a double meaning for each of us. 5 MRS. ANNE P. BIDDLE Appreciation To “ANNIE P ” To Mrs. Anne P. Biddle, a dedicated teacher, who has guided and inspired the LAUREL LEAF Staff for six years, we, the staff of 1961, wish to convey our heartfelt admiration and appreciation. Mrs. Biddle’s combination of good humor, clever originality, and untiring effort have enabled The LAUREL LEAF to gain honor and respectful recognition for Franklin High School. 6 MR. HARRY C. CORBIN Dedication Each day at Franklin High School is brightened by the smile and friendly nod of a man who is respected and admired by both faculty and students alike. His congenial attitude creates an atmosphere of warmness that spreads to every part of our school activities. As a result of his fairness to all and his interest in the individual student, Franklin High School has climbed to new heights under his leadership as principal. Mr. Corbin, we, the Yearbook Staff, proudly dedicate the 1961 edition of the THE LAUREL LEAF to you in gratitude and sincere appreciation for what you mean to Franklin High School. 7 The Laurel Leaf Staff MRS.

Adem is making his home in Franklin with Mr. and Mrs. John Bulgin and family. His activities at Franklin High School include the Hi Pi Club, the Students’ International Discussion Club, the Library Club, and the Student Council. His favorite sport is swimming. When Adem returns to Bursa, he plans to continue his education at the University of Turkey, where he will study mechanical engineering. 46 At the beginning of their junior year, Linda Morrow and Bill Hyde applied to be foreign exchange students under the American Field Service Program.

SENIOR CLASS SONG Our days at Franklin High are gone, And though the memory lingers on, We still have our moments to remember. As summer turns to winter, the years are passing by. We’ll remember always, Our days at Franklin High. The quiet hours of study each day Have led us to a brighter way. We still have our moments to remember. With farewells said to all these days, We all will go our separate ways. We will have our moments to remember. (Tune: Moments to Remember) Seniors are initiated into the Beta Club. 48 fcVfctfi’T 49 " land, plant my, led an. kkfUen. cymuid " wSifiia it iM’ra Junior Officers (Left to right): Sammy Tallent, President; Arvil Holland, Treasurer; Janice Cabe, Secretary; and Carol Hedden, Vice-President. 50 Eddie Adams Jimmy Anderson Don Angel Martha Angel Nannie Bell Angel Carroll Arnold Wanda Bailey Wallace Baker Jimmy Bateman Carolyn Bates Ola Belle Bates Bobby Bell Nancy Beriy Ted Bingham Billy Bishop Anne Blaine E.
