The light of Franklin High School is many things-it’s the ready “Hi” whenever students meet-it’s the meeting for a hamburger and a coke when there really isn’t time-it’s the athlete whose spirit never lags in the face of defeat and the fans who cheer him on. It’s all these things and more, for the light of Franklin High School is her students, students acting as the individuals they are, and at the same time being a part of that experience—High School. 2 F , R, nsrK:x_.xrQ‘ xxigs-xx FRANKLIN, NORTH C-A-RCGLHST-A. 3 Solitude is broken to share the thoughts and feelings of another, to talk and plan and hope in terms of two. Solitude gives time for reflection, for personal evaluation, for belonging wholly to oneself. The harmony of couples gives way to groups, changing associations. Ideas bom of one, nurtured by two, are brought to the open light of diverse opinions, there to grow or to be absorbed in greater thoughts. 4 THE STUDENT in his quest of knowledge. THE STUDENT as he seeks love, laughter, and comrade¬ ship mingles with his fellow students. THE STUDENT, recognizing God as the giver of life, reaches another milestone. The Yearbook staff proudly dedicates the 1965 Laurel Leaf to one who has given unselfishly of her time to Franklin High School. First of all as a teacher who led many girls into their first year; secondly as a friend who helped students entering for the first time understand the principles and appreciate the spirit that is Franklin High School. As a teacher, she instilled in the students an awareness that health, physical fitness and, most of all, a sense of fair play and sportsmanship were necessary if the student was to be prepared to enter a fast changing society! She practiced these principles in the classroom and in the athletic program. While a coach at Franklin High School, her teams compiled an excellent record. In her eight years as coach, she led the girls’ basketball teams to four conference titles. In the other four years her teams finished in second place. In conference games she won eighty- nine and lost only ten. Because she has taught so much, and guided so many and because of the support she gives now, it is truly a time to honor MRS. ROSE CORBIN. 6 ...in school ... after school ... at home Maid of Honor-1964-65 Truly, Miss Jean Dills represents the ideal Miss F.H.S. 9 MISS FRANKLIN Miss Linda Wallace Senior 10 Miss Mary Arm Wallace Senior Miss Jean Shields Junior Miss Brenda Bolick Sophomore 11 Miss Karen Houston Sophomore Miss Melba Bryson Freshman Miss Tracy Fesperman Freshman Miss Linda McCall Freshman 12 13 BEST PERSONALITY Judy Carpenter, Tommy Carpenter NEATEST Janice Cabe, Pete Shope BEST ALL AROUND Evelyn Johnson, Kurt Emmrich 14 -■ MOST ATTRACTIVE Kathy O’Brien, Mike Sizemore 15 MOST POPULAR Jean Dills, R.V.

Faced with building a new football team, Gene Styles’ Panthers played host to the strong non-conference Georgia Industrial foe in the opening game of the season. Although the Panthers dominated the statistics, they began an eight game losing streak by falling on the short end of a 7-0 defensive battle. A Clayton, Ga. powerhouse eleven defeated Franklin the following week, 34-7. The Panther-men next played host to the highly-rated Andrews team in their first conference game of the year. In a bruising, hard-hitting contest, the Panthers were shutout, 19-0. The Franklin team then started a three game road trip by traveling to Sylva for an important conference clash. The Panthers fell prey to Sylva’s strong running attack, losing by the score of 27-12. The following week, still looking for their first win, the Panthers traveled to Hayesville with hopes of breaking their four game losing streak. But the hard-luck eleven failed to overcome Hayesville’s two first-half touch¬ downs and lost their fifth straight game, 13-0. In their next outing, an away game, the struggling Panthers were whitewashed by Reynolds, 33-0. The following week, in a home game, Robbinsville breezed by the Styles-Corbin-coached men, 46-13. Arch-rival Swain then humiliated the winless Panthers by the score of 39-0. Playing host to the Clyde Cardinals in their next outing, the Panthers burst out of a year-long slump, displaying tremendous offensive power in scoring more points in one quarter than in the combined previous eight games, while romping to an impressive 53-13 win. Traveling to Murphy after a week’s rest, the Panthers pulled the S.M.C.’s upset of the year by coming from behind to nip the Bulldogs, 24-21, in the season’s finale for both teams. 50 David Long Halfback Buddy Henson Quarterback Walter Scruggs End m mmm Tom Crawford Tackle Doyle Holland Center Jerry Chastain Guard Mike Sizemore Tackle 51 Bobby Hunt Halfback Joe Bell Halfback Nicky Jamison Guard Ronnie Arms Guard Eddie Hoilman Halfback Gary Roland Tackle Charles Stewart End Junior Patton Tackle Kurt Emmrich Guard Dennis Sanders Halfback 52 Franklin’s surprisingly impressive wins in their last two games left Panther fans and players looking forward to next season.

Handicapped by lack of experience, the girls were defeated in the season’s opener, 57-37, by the non-conference Murphy powerhouse. Recovering from this opening defeat, the Pantherettes have since shown steady improvement with each game, and as the yearbook goes to press, stand first in conference play with a 10-3 overall record. Following the Murphy game, the Franklin lasses defeated Clayton, Ga., by the score of 46-31. Traveling to Sylvathey then demolished their opponents, 52-16. The following week Cherokee’s girls put up a strong fight, but fell on the short end of a 36-26 score. Franklin then Squeezed by Swain High 39-37 in a come-from-behind last-second victory. Playing host to Murphy in the next outing, the girls again were defeated by the Bulldogs, 67-32. The Anderson-coached lasses then edged Waynesville and Rabun Gap by the scores of 4034 and 43-42, respectively. Traveling to Clayton the next week, the girls lost a 49-46 thriller in a non-conference game. In the following games, the fighting Pantherettes whipped Nantahala 44-31, Rabun Gap 44-35, and Highlands 57-31. In their last outing before the yearbook goes to press, Franklin strengthened its hold on first place by dowing Glenville 47-25. Led by Coach Tom Raby, who has compiled an excellent won-lost record at Franklin in the past years, the Franklin Panthers impressively beat Murphy 72-38, in the season’s opener for both teams. In a home contest played before a capacity crowd, the Panthers knocked off Clayton by the score of 53-41 before losing to Sylva’s Golden-Eagles, 71-62. Coming back from their first loss of the season, Franklin whipped Cherokee 81-67 and then stomped arch-rival Swain 68-34. Play¬ ing host to Murphy in their next outing the Raby-coached men breezed by the Bull¬ dogs by the score of 83-55. They then edged Waynesville 59-44 and continued their winning streak by downing Georgia foes Rabun Gap and Clayton, by the scores of 70-58 and 57-44. Franklin then bowed to Cullowhee 78-61 in their second conference loss of the season. Bouncing back, they once again defeated Rabun Gap, 81-42, before knocking off Highlands 57-31. Franklin’s fighting Panthers then trounced Glenville by the score of 104-49. As the yearbook goes to press , the Panthers stand 11-2 overall, tied for second place in the conference, with Panther fans and players looking forward to seeing much more action before the season ends.

The quest of knowledge for knowledge’s sake is man’s first obligation to his Creator. Seniors, may your experiences at Franklin High School be instrumental in providing you with the abilities to distinguish between obstacles and stepping stones; prejudice and tolerance; hate and love; irresponsibility and responsibility; ignorance and knowledge; folly and wisdom. The value of your high school education is partially measured by the evidences of these factors in your life. Mr. Harry Corbin, Principal 64 SOCIAL Mrs. Katherine L.

Our school year had begun. Some of us had come willing and ready to learn; some of us, not as eager. This scene of confusion was quite a contrast to the previous three months of loafing, swimming, dating, vacationing, and just doing nothing. Most of us had been accustomed to all this leisure time, but now books and studying had to occupy most of our time, or did it? But once we got into the “swing” of things, this idea of education wasn’t too bad. Besides, before we even got settled and memorized our schedule—here came football—something to look forward to for ten week¬ ends. The pep rallies were fun and every game we attended was more exciting than the last one. We didn’t let the fact that our boys weren’t on top get us “down in the dumps” ’cause the boys were playing for Frank¬ lin High School and they were the PANTHERS. They played their hearts out and we yelled ours out. The Panther Marching Band, the cold night air, and a ninety-nine yard touchdown was sufficient to put any one of us in the football “spirit.” Football season came to an end only too soon for all of us. The Panthers were just getting “warmed-up” and so were we. As the weather began to get colder and as we went hurrying by the gym, we could hear the sounds of basketball practice—more week-ends could be planned now. The season began sooner than anyone thought and was over even sooner. During basketball season there was hardly time for us to “squeeze” everything in. The seniors had at least one happy moment of getting, admiring, and “showing-off their new rings. But this proud moment gave way to sad ones as we were again orientated for College Board. This kept us busy one of our Saturdays. However, another Saturday was spent preparing for a happier occasion—the Miss F.H.S. party. This party—the highlight of the year-had to be planned and that took most of our time. Also requiring time and plenty of thought was College Day which forced us to think of our future plans. Each of us had our job to do ranging from some committee to just making use of the informat¬ ion. After this, Christmas soon came. During the holidays we forgot all about advanced biology, geometry, and history. 134 The holidays ended with great sadness. Because, after all, we had mid-terms to face on our return and this meant hours of studying if we were to pass them. We survived the mid-terms, resolved to do better next sem¬ ester, and resumed basketball season. Soon we were greeted with inches and inches of snow and it was given the warmest and heartiest of welcomes. We enjoyed the free days and nights. The snowball carelessly stuffed down our collar by our dates didn’t bother us at all; in fact, it pleased us. But as the snowy days continued we thought of graduation date and July 4 didn’t sound so good. Finally, we welcomed school in a funny sort of way-to get out before summer. The tournaments ended basketball season-a good season for the boys and girls. We found trying to get back into our regular routine the most difficult thing of the year. The NEDT, National Merit, and DAT helped us who were juniors, sophomores, and freshmen to start thinking again. But seniors were marching now and our minds were incapable of “picking up” anything except the thought of grad¬ uation. The Senior-Faculty game helped us to realize that spring was just around the corner. Spring finally came and with it spring fever, a new girlfriend, and thoughts of the Junior-Senior prom. Spring brought other things, however-important things, things never to be forgotten. Spring was a sure sign of happiness, now our thoughts became concrete. The Junior Senior Prom came and was a big success. And finally what we h ad all waited and hoped for, yet dreaded and feared—graduation. FINALLY. To the Spirit of the Panther—whom we promise to uphold and respect—our school symbol— THE PANTHER. 136 r
