In the opening game of the 1963 football season, under the direction of their new head coach, Eugene Styles, and his assistant Grady Corbin, the highly spirited Franklin Panthers traveled to Clayton, Georgia, with hopes of coming home with an upset in their pockets. But the powerful Clayton team proved to be too much for the inexperienced Panthers, as they came back on the short end of a 20-0 score in a non-conference game. The following week the Panthers journeyed to Andrews, where they were defeated 33-7. However, the score did not tell the closeness in which the game was played, as the two teams were locked in a tight defensive battle until late in the fourth quarter. The next week the Panthers were host to the powerful Clarksville, Georgia, team. Coming from behind in the last quarter the Panthers gained 6-6 tie. This proved to be the turning point of the season, as the Franklin team showed steady improvement in the re¬ maining games of the season. The week following the Clarksville game, the Panthers defeated the Hayesville Yellow Jackets, 14-0, in a rough and tumble game that was marked by an unusual number of penalities. The Panthers then met the Sylva-Webster Eagles, and, going into the game as heavy underdogs, they were defeated by only one point, 7-6. Bouncing back from this heart-breaking loss, Franklin then defeated Robbinsville 14-6 in a game played on the loser ' s home field. Following this the Panthers then spoiled Swain High ' s Homecoming hopes by gaining a 13-13 tie in the last quarter. In their next two games the Franklin team defeated non-conference foes Clyde and Westminster by the scores of 40-0 and 19-7, respectively.

In the final game of the season the Panthers brought a successful year to a climax by defeat¬ ing the Murphy Bulldogs by the score of 14-0. Constantly improving each game, and fooling pre-season predictions of a next-to-last place finish in the conference, the Panthers finished with a 5-3-2 record, tied for third place in the conference. Members of the Panthers ' football squad who will graduate this year are Joe Hall, Gene Young, Alex Corbin, Lawrence Cook, Lewis Ashe, Paul Armes, Jim Simpson,Deuane Hedden, L.T. Gibson, J.C. Anderson, Jim Taylor, Gene Angel, Dennis Houston, Arland Evitt, Larry Smith, and Donald Fisher.

GIBSON HUGH FRANKLIN Guard Forward The Franklin Panthers boys’ basketball team, coached by Tommy Raby, who has led the Panthers to a 50-5 won-lost record over the past two seasons, opened the 1963-1964 basketball season with only one starter returning from last year ' s squad. Suffering from the loss of the graduation of last year ' s three all-conference players, the Panthers set out to rebuild themselves out of a team with little previous experience. The starting line-up was composed of juniors and seniors, but several sopho¬ mores made up the largest part of a very strong bench. In the opening game of the season, the Panthers looked impressive in a 57-28 victory over Clayton, Georgia, a non-conference foe. The following game they bowed to the Waynesville Mountaineers by the score of 49-41 in another non-conference affair. The Franklin five then edged the Sylva-Webster Golden Eagles 51-47 in the Panthers ' first conference game. In the next outing, the Panther-men defeated conference foe Cherokee by the score of 78-50. After slipping by arch rival Swain in a hard fought 46-39 battle, the Raby-coached Panthers trounched the Murphy Bulldogs 77-31, edged the Rabun Gap Warriors 50-47, and then avenged an earlier defeat by Waynesville by defeating the Mountaineers by the score of 48-42. A third loss of the season was absorbed when the Panthers traveled to Murphy and were upset 57-46. They bounced back to defeat Cullowhee 63-48 in an important conference contest but then were defeated by the Clayton Wildcats in a 45-44 non-conference overtime thriller. As the year¬ book goes to the printers, the Panthers hold a 8-3 won-lost record, un¬ defeated in conference play.

The Corbin-coached team was then defeated by the highly ranked Waynesville Mountaineers by the score of 44-30, but bounced back the following week with a 49-19 trouncing of Sylva. Following this the Pantherettes then lost two heartbreakers to Cherokee and Swain by the scores of 24-19 and 21-20, respectively. They then upset highly rated Murphy by the score of 45-41. In their next outing the Franklin team slipped by Rabun Gap 48-35, but then lost another heartbreaking decision to Waynesville, 34-31. Murphy then gained revenge by routing the Franklin six by the score of 64-32. The Pantherettes were upset by Clayton 62-45, but then rallied for conference victories over High¬ lands and Glenville. As the annual goes to press, the Franklin team has a 3-2 won-lost conference record.

H. BEUCK, superintendent To The Seniors: To the 1964 graduates of Frank¬ lin High School I offer congratulations, tinged somewhat with envy. You come upon the stage at a time when the speed and magnitude of action far outstrip any period of the past. Your poten¬ tialities for good or evil are highly magnified by the tools of power that are yours to command. In no previous period of history has it been so vitally necessary for survival that we know the right and choose to do it. We have tried to give you a true sense of moral values that will be of immeasurable worth to you. MR. HARRY CORBIN, principal MRS. CONNIE CAMPBELL, secretary. Seniors, if your educational ex¬ periences at Franklin High School have promoted character building, have helped you to be more moral, more just to your associates, more disting- uishably patriotic, and more aware of your public responsibilities, they are worth the efforts which were necessary to provide them. 60 Math Department MR.

The social studies department strives to help the student develop an understanding of the democratic concept that all human beings, regardless of race, nationality, or creed are entitled to these rights. Through the history courses, students attain an appreciation for the develop¬ ments and contributions of the past, and taking courses in civics and eco¬ nomics, students develop an awareness of state, national, and international problems. Social Science 66 MR. MERRITT FOUTS Bookkeeping, Business Law, General Business, General Math, F.B.L.A. MISS DARLENE COLLINS Typing I, II, Journalism, General Business, The Mountain Echo MRS. MARJORIE CRAWFORD Typing I II, Shorthand, Office Practice Business Department The business department attempts to give the non-vocational students basic consumer education and education for social-economic efficency so that they might better be able to cope with everyday problems involving business and economic concepts. The department also strives to help the vocational students who have shown a desire for vocational competency develop the skill training and the occupational intelligence necessary for them to make satisfactory occupational adjustments. Librarian Duties of the librarian range from order¬ ing books, classifying them and preparing them for student use to the instructing of freshmen English classes in how to use the library. In between all of these duties come duties such as keeping records of all books that are checked in and out of the library, keeping up-to-date records, and teaching pupil assistants how to use the library and how to perform various duties. MRS. REBECCA CLARK Librarian, Library Club 67 To help the students develop an appreciation of the life, customs, and culture of the Spanish and French speaking countries is a major objective of the foreign language de¬ partment. Another objective closely related to this objective is to help the students develop an understanding attitude toward other people with a view of eradicating racial, religious, and nationalistic prejudices. Teachers in the language department endeavor to teach communications involving listening comprehension, speaking, reading, and writing abilities. Home Economics MRS. CAROLYN COGAN Home Economics I, II, III, F H A Courses in the home economics department are designed to encourage a wholesome attitude toward assuming home responsibilities. Home eco¬ nomics helps the students develop an understanding of why people are dif¬ ferent, and a feeling of tolerance for other people. Helping the students develop an understanding of acceptable social behavior and helping to develop an understanding ofhowwemay attain emotional maturity are two other o b¬ jectives of this department. MISS JOY McCOLLUM English I, Spanish I, II, French II Foreign Language MISS ANN PENNINGTON Spanish I, II, III, English II 68 Agriculture Major objectives of the agri¬ culture department are to teach present and prospective farmers proficiency in agriculture and to give training in citizenship, co¬ operation, scholarship, thrift, re¬ creation, and leadership. MR. WAYNE PROFFITT Agriculture I, II, III, IV, F.F.A. Driver Ed ucation The driver education depart¬ ment undertakes to provide an understanding of what the job of a driver is and of the importance of building sound traffic habits. This department endeavors to show that knowledge of traffic laws is one essential basis for development of sound, courteous, law-observing driving. Another primary objective of the driver education department is to include a step-by-step pro¬ cedure for driving a car, and to teach the essential facts about what makes the car run. MR. FRANK RAMSEY Driver Training, Safety Patrol Music MR. JAMES HARWELL Band, Chorus, Glee Club The music department helps stu¬ dents develop skills in playing an instrument and in vocal produc¬ tion. The music department offers opportunities to continue growth in appreciation and enjoyment of music through participation in organized musical groups. I don ' t want to play the redheads again.

YOUNG, President; JOE HALL, Vice-President; JOYCE Four years of laughter, tears, and much work, and now finally the time of preparation is finished, gone, not to be recalled. All the hours spent in studying math, chemistry, and physics are only memories. English IV, with its Macbeth, caused some burning of the night oil, but after all our study, we realize that life is not a tale told by an idiot and that lifes does signify some¬ thing. Our years at Franklin High were full of sound and fury, but these years also are filled with happiness, love, and many wonderful memories. 72 MARGARET ELLEN AMMONS Future Plans: Beautician JOSEPH CLIFTON ANDERSON Activities: Football, 1,2,3,4.

JUNIORS As a Junior and an upperclassman, you became aware ol the spirit of Franklin High School. You were proud of your school and wanted to make it a better one. Classes in United States history, geometry, and English III made lasting impressions on you. You had many wonderful experiences and good times, all of which will be re¬ membered for a long time. 98 Class of 1965 James Ammons Reagon Ammons Virginia Ammons Rachel Angel Helen Barnes Mary Bingham Danny Bolick Carolyn Bowers Pat Bryson Brenda Buchanan Denzel Buchanan Joe Buchanan James Brabson Gary Brabson Douglas Brendle Jackie Brown 99 Class of 1965 Frances Cabe Jane Cabe Phyllis Cabe Arnold Carpenter Jo Ann Burch James Burrell Janice Burrell Doyle Byrd Tommy Carpenter Nancy Chastain Hampton Childers David Cloer Johnny Cloer Larry Cloer Laura Cloer Delbert Clouse 100 Class of 1965 Danny Coates Kathy Cochran Leonard Cook Max Cook Ronnie Crisp Carolyn Crunkleton Beverly Dalton Beverly Darnell 101 Ciass of 1965 Mavis Dowdle Gail Dowdle Donald Duncan Larry Duvall Hugh Franklin Bruce Franks Linda Gibson Linda Sue Gibson 102 Class of 1965 Ben Grant Maxine Green Pete Haithcock Nellie Henry Dorothy Higdon Janice Hodgin Cora Holden Jerry Holden 103 Class of 1965 Richard Holland Dennis Hooper Shirley Hughes Bobby Hunt Barbara Hurst Brenda Hurst Dennis Hurst Harry Jacobs Nicky Jamison Bill Jamison Bill Johnson Clydia Johnson Evelyn Johnson Ray Jones Margie Justice Tommy Justice 104 Class of 1965 Melba Keener Ruby Kell Margaret Leatherwood Elizabeth Ledford Nancy Leopard Cynthia Lynch Jimmy Martin Judy Martin Patsy Mashburn Jerry McClure Chester McConnell Harley McConnell Lee Roy McConnell Maragret McCoy Dennis McDowell Henry McMahan 105 Class of 1965 Frank Moffitt Betty Jean Moore Pat Moore Bruce Morgan Richard Nicholson Kathy O ' Brien Gloria Oliver Ronnie Parrish Junior Patton Dollie Peek Glenda Peek Ann Pendergrass 106 Class of 1965 Tim Raby Everett Randall Benny Reeves Randall Rogers Audrey Roper Curley Rowland Gary Rowland Brenda Seagle 107 Class of 1965 Dorothy Seagle Linda Seay Peggy Shepherd June Shepherd Benny Shope Wayne Shope Mike Sizemore Frances Slagle Ann Shepherd Tommy Sherrill R.

FRESHMEN The freshman year is one of indecision and uncertainty. There are so many unanswered questions, new experiences, and new friendships that there is never a dull moment. Great Ex¬ pectations is thrust upon you before you have a chance to settle down to your new surroundings. But gradually it all becomes routine and you ' re a full-fledged high school student at F.H.S. 120 Patty Adams Roger Adams Carl Alexander Juanita Ammons Dot Anderson Judy Anderson Paul Anderson Ralph Angel Nancy Arvey Boyd Ashe Margaret Bailey Karen Baldwin Elaine Barrett Eddie Bateman Donald Bates Joey Bell Sue Berry David Bingham Class of 1967 Edwin Blaine Brenda Bolick Marvin Bolick Billy Bowman Andrew Bradley Debbie Bradley Gene Bradley Rebecca Bradley Brenda Bridgeman Rickey Brogden Buzzy Bryson Dennis Bryson Leslie Bryson Jack Buchanan Yvonne Buchanan Mary Margaret Bulgin Douglas Cabe Gail Cabe Judy Cabe Sharon Cabe Sue Cabe Carlene Carpenter Linda Carpenter Emma Carter 121 Dwight Cassada Gary Catway Willie Jean Cheek Gary Childers Reba Cloer Donette Clouse Donnie Clouse Larry Conley Sue Conley Catherine Cook Bernice Cowart Ann Crisp Carlos Crisp Charles Crisp George Crockett Jimmy Cross Helen Cunningham Ray Cunningham Class of 1967 Ruth Cunningham Troy Dalrymple Arthur Dalton Nick Daniels Jearlene Davis Wade Davis Genevee Dehart Sammy Dehart Jack Dendy Mack Dendy Bruce Dills David Dills Wilma Dills Max Downs Martha Duncan David Duvall Nancy Duvall Dan Elkins Wayne Elkins Genie Enloe Jay Enloe Sallie Estes Evelyn Evans Bill Fagg 122 Deanna Fox Monroe F ranks Bruce Garrison J.D.

Inexperienced freshmen walked about not knowing what to expect, while " sophisticated " upperclassmen returned to familiar sights and sounds—and suddenly realized they were glad to be back. After registration was completed, everyone settled down to study—but not for long ... ... The atmosphere was alive with football. Everyone was ahxious to see the 1963 Pan¬ thers, headed by a new coach, in their first few games, and to follow their progress throughout the season. All were pleased with and a bit vainglorious about what they saw. Fridays became long and tense as everyone waited to see " our boys " charge onto the field. Who can’t remember the Sylva game, or the touchdown that netted Franklin 6 points and netted you a hug from your date and a Coke down your back from the guy behind you? Classes at Franklin High School—those 55 minute sessions which held your attention, but sometimes found you daydreaming and wondering what the teacher had just said. And while the words flowed on, you frantically marked up the margin of your notebook trying to unclog your " guaranteed " ballpoint pen. On a bleak November day you sat in stunned si¬ lence, bewildered by terrible news. The President had been assassinated. You did some serious thinking as you gazed out at the ashen sky that roofed the quiet hills. Before you knew it, those autumn days and Friday nights of football were a thing of the past. Suddenly it was Dec¬ ember—a time for holidays and Christmas. Those window dis¬ plays on Main Street for the first time became important as they helped you choose the ideal gift for Dad or for that special someone. All the teachers tried to get in just one more test; and, finally, on a day of hours that lasted forever, you heard the bell; and, dashing through the door, you picked up a pile of books—destined to gather dust over the holidays. Between the end of Christmas vacation and midterm exams, most of your time was spent worrying about ... exams. On the night before the " big one, " the light dawned, and you began to get an inkling of just what the teacher had been driving at all semester. Perhaps you wished that some of the hours spent over at the City had been spent studying. After it was all over, however, you settled down to more classes with more themes and more tests. During those chilly winter months you turned to indoor entertainment— and found plenty of it. There were club activities, movies, and those grand parties at the Youth Center. On a win¬ ter ' s afternoon you could always stroll down to the drugstore for conversation and refreshment. The student council was planning the Miss FHS event; and all the students wondered " Who will she be? ' 129 Studies were forgotten as the basketball teams moved confidently from victory to victory, and you didn ' t miss a single game. After the games, many hours were spent at the City over a cup of coffee discussing matters of no great importance. There were many more things to be said; and you wondered where the time had gone. But you had to go home and study just an hour more for that big test the next day. As the days got warmer and warmer, it became harder and harder for you to spend the day indoors. After school you could walk over to town or just go home and sit in the sun. You began to worry about getting a summer job. Somehow that cute girl or boy you had seen in the hall seemed a lot more friendly—or maybe the attraction was greater. Everyone began to think about picnics, spring parties, and the junior-senior prom. 130 While you goofed off all those warm after¬ noons and shot the breeze on those spring evenings, the members of the faculty began to look forward to the end of the school year and to review all their classes for final exams. May went by much too fast what with moon¬ light swimming at Arrowood, et cetera, et cetera, et cetera; and, right toward the end, the faculty slipped in a few examinations. It was kind of hard for you to study, though, when there was so much you simply had to do—and everybody else had a " To heck with ' em " attitude, too. As you assembled with your class for the last time and walked in a solemn procession toward the gym, you had a sense of accomplishment—you, a high school graduate; but at the same time, you hated to leave those many friends and those marvelous times, the best you ever had. 131 A PRODUCT OP 333 INDIANA AVENUE WINSTON-SALEM.
