[ 3 ] a kDedicated C C5o cilice Wiggin Scholar, Counselor, teacher, S friend SBy the Glass of 1929 Alice Wiggin’s admiration for the distinguished scholar has ever fur¬ nished to the youths, who came under her supervision, incentives to make of themselves citizens of usefulness, leaders of the next generation’s thought, and promoters of true manhood. Her students have a profound appreciation of genius in whatever g uise it may be found. She is a master in the art of teaching English literature, her travels enriching her in collating the story with the environment, thereby creating more accurate mental pictures. She is a critic capable of grasping and explaining her subject with clearness and precision by the use of short and simple words, so that her pupils ascertain what the world expects from its teachers. She shows a remarkable breadth of judgment, a patience that never wearies, a cpiiet enthusiasm which no difficulty can distort or destroy, and great insight which can give richness to literature and new meanings to old dogmas. As a friend, she loves the pupils for what they are, radiating to them by precept, sympathy and example, what she would have them be. Her creed — “Be a friend; the rest will follow.” (Dickerson) c 5’o teacher, instructor, friend “Doc,” the most familiar figure around our high school, has the love and respect of a host of students past and present. Mr. Fraser’s reputation in his chosen field of science has extended beyond his home town. His dra¬ matic talent in the fields of both acting and coaching needs no eulogy. But more than any other factors, his fine sympathy, generous kindliness, and strict sense of honor and justice have won for him a popularity which in¬ creases with the years. [ 4 ] [ 5 j a Sfamimrii the Class of Nineteen Hundred and Twenty- Nine, extend our best Avishes to our beloved principal, Mr. Albert T. Patty, who has willingly guided us through the four years of our High School career. We have now reached the point where we must part, and henceforth, each will strive to reach his own goal. We are greatly indebted to Mr. Patty for the firm foundation received by us under his leadership. Because of this foundation we shall be able to enter the battle of life with well grounded chance of success. [ 6 ] Albert uL Pattg Prinrtpal f 7 ] Nrui Baoia {Eliagpr £rluu4 UntlMitg Arthur W.

Yl E, the class of 1929, are proud to be able to say that we are the first class to have completed four years in the new Davis Thayer Building. On September 9, 1925, we entered High School with 121 members which have dwindled down to 59. Upon our entrance we found ourselves assigned to the third floor which was free from upper classmen, much to our relief. We soon became accustomed to our new school life. At the Freshman Acquaintance Party our class made its debut, and the ice was broken. Some of our classmates were even lucky enough to be looked upon with favor by the male members of the Senior class. The track meets soon followed. We Freshmen took back seats in both meets but as this was our first year we were not greatly upset by it. Mean¬ while Football and Hockey were in full swing. Just before Thanksgiving the College English Class gave a play in Assembly. We had always considered ourselves quite clever and this proved it, for we put one over on the upper classmen that day. Our leading charac¬ ter refused to learn his part, so with a pile of books before him, with his paper on the table, he proceeded to read it. On coming back from Xmas vacation we faced a new terror — " Mid- Year’s” — We lived in constant dread of the day that should bring them thither, a dread due to the talk of the upper classmen. The exams really weren’t half so bad as they were made out to be. As was to be expected the Freshmen turned out 100% strong to patron¬ ize the basketball games. In fact, we seemed much more interested in them than in our studies. We all realized it. too, when report cards came out. Early in the spring the Business Men’s Essay Contest was announced. We were greatly elevated from our position of meek and mild little Fresh¬ men when " Ray” Feeley and " Eddie” Ackley of our class carried ofif the first and second prizes. Moreover, when " Eddie” carried off first prize for the boys at the Prize Speaking Contest, our joy was complete. Also by this time some of our Freshman girls had become so well acquainted with the upper classmen that many Seniors were minus their rings. In fact, our girls were [ 10 ] noted for the reason that they wouldn’t take anything less than a Senior. In this year Philip Baiona. one of the popular members of our class, came here from Mechanics Art High School. Finals came all too soon, and in no time at all vacation was here. We came back two months later and found ourselves graduated from the top floor to the second. The track meet was much the same as the pre- ceeding year. Early in the fall the Shakespearian Club came into being. The Shakespearian Club existed during the Class of ’29’s Sophomore year. The club had its meeting every Tuesday afternoon in the High School Aud¬ itorium. The officers were: President, “Eddie” Ackley; Vice-President, Helen Nowland; Secretary, Florence Tufts; Treasurer, Barbara Hudson; Program Director, “Ray” Feeley. Somehow or other the funds of the club were misappropriated, the consequences being that the treasurer was never again allowed to handle money for any organization. We made a trip to Boston to witness “Macbeth.” Led on by this, we attempted to present a scene from the “Tempest” by Shakespeare, at Horace Mann Literary Club Meeting. We doubt if anyone recognized it, but it seemed to delight the audience, especially when the scenery kept rocking to and fro. The club closed in June and died a natural death. This year we added a few more new members to our class, Clare and Bob McMorrow from Dorchester High School, and Leonard Houle from Woonsocket. Our Junior Year dawned upon us all too quickly. All the social events of the fall were combined in one large event, the Hallowe’en Dance. For the first time since our entrance into High School we elected class officers. You see we were quite different from previous classes. It was quite a surprise to us and everyone else. The officers were: President, “Mike” Vignone; Vice-President, Philip Baiona; Secretary, Florence Tufts; Treasurer, Richard Linn. Due to the fact that Richard moved away, John Clapp was chosen to fill his place. Great excitement reigned from the beginning of May until the 25th when the Junior Prom took place. Everyone worked hard and did his share to- [ 11 J ward giving the Seniors the best reception ever, and due to our efforts our wishes were fulfilled. I suppose ever}- Junior class thinks their reception is the best ever, but we know ours was. We entered our Senior year determined to get everything possible out of our last year in High School, and we certainly have. Class officers were elected. They were: President, Halford Crockett; Vice-President, Edward Ackley; Secretary, Norma Tracy; Treasurer, Dorothy Abbott. This year it was our turn to give the Freshman Acquaintance Party which turned out to he a great success. Our class was leader in athletics, many of our classmates being members of the football and basketball teams. John Clapp was our star trackman and won many trophies. “Father and the Boys” was presented by the school, but most of the major parts were filled by the Seniors. Later on in the year, our class presented “The Cat and the Canary” for the benefit of the year book. We have endeavored to carry on the policy of Alvin Landry in the publication of the year book and we hope the following classes will continue this policy. Such is the history of the class of ' 29. Thus we went through our four years with one object in mind, F. H. S. first. BARBARA HUDSON. ■-o- Motto Vincit qui putet se posse He conquers who thinks he can.

Boys’ Physical Teacher We owe our very promising track team to Mr. Abell. Without a doubt, a more appreciated instructor and coach will be hard to find. Ann C. Callahan, B.S.S. Typewriting and Shorthand Curiosity got the best of us when we j o first heard her counting to her type¬ writing class, but we soon got accus¬ tomed to that, however. Delphine Carpenter Music We shall never forget our music peri¬ ods when we were in the presence of M iss Carpenter. She was very sociable indeed, but she never told us the secret of where to find “The Lost Chord.” [ 15 ] Priscilla Davis Civics Miss Davis is very well thought of, although she was rather free with her sessions. James J. Doherty, A.B. Mathematics e all looked forward daily to the period of Math when Mr. Doherty poured his overflowing supply of knowledge into our heads. Hilda B. Foster, A.B. French Miss Foster surely knew her French, and so did we when we completed our year under her careful training. [ 16 ] Margaret R. Fish, A.R. Latin Although Miss Fish always warned us with promises of session slips, we never got any, so we pass on the word that she is an excellent teacher. Arthur G. Hilbert Manual Training This is the coach who put the school on the map by his skill and efforts in athletics. He is also a very efficient instructor. Doris Kubeck Girls’ Physical M iss Kubeck was very well liked by her girl students and also by the boys. [ 17 ] Evelyn McClure, A.B. English An agreeable instructor who made our English class a pleasant place in which to learn. Gertrude Mitiguy, B.S. Domestic Science Miss Mitiguy was always in favor with the students, for she could usually supply them with something to eat. Margaret O’Brien Bookkeeping We could not ask for a better teacher in bookkeeping, nor a more pleasant and obliging friend than she. [ 18 ] Ellen Shepard, B.S.E. History Our history instructor who could give an accurate account for almost every dav from the Beginning of Time. Margaret Shepard, A.B. English A student could not help learning English from such an agreeable teacher as Miss Shepard. Alfred Webber Biology We thank Mr. Webber for the produc¬ tion of our orchestra. He also made our classes very pleasant and interesting. [ 19 ] Irene K. Wight Drawing Mrs. Wight was the sunshine in her drawing classes. We shall never let slip the memories of the careful tutoring which she gave us. [ 20 ] [ 21 ] rljnnl Siifa Cheer! Cheer! for Franklin, all together strong, All in your places! push our fame along.

Here comes " Hal,” our class president and big gun! " Hal’s” ability is well known. Was it baseball, football, hockey, or track? All of them! “Hal” would do it! He put his shoulder to the wheel and helped things to go round. “Hal” was always more or less popular with the so-called “weak sex.” You could usually find one or two girls in “Hal’s” vicinity. Of course, he wouldn’t admit this fact, but he doesn’t have to, because we know! “Hal” is going to Fitchburg Normal next year. We wish him the “best of luck,” and hope he occupies the same position in his new classmates’ hearts as he has in ours.

EDWARD ACKLEY Cottage Street “Eddie” Franklin “There is no part too difficult for him to play.” “Eddie” was always a very popular member of our class. Not only with the fellows was this true, but he was also a general fa¬ vorite with the members of the fairer sex. “Eddie” was fond of dancing and could often be seen “tripping the light fantastic” around the floor. “Eddie” had two great talents, and they were for acting and public speaking. In the fall he is to go under the supervision of E. E. Clive of the Copley Theatre in Boston. We are sure he will be a great success, and wish him the best of luck!

Class Prize Alden Club Essay 2; Associate Business Man¬ ager " Oskey.” DOROTHY LOUISE ABBOTT School Street “Dot” Franklin “Always ready, always there, Always willing to do her share.” " Dot” represented the persevering type who would push through any obstacle and come out the victor. That’s probably why “Dot” made such a good showing in basketball and hockey. “Dot” was also one of the intellectual members of our class, as was shown by the fact that she was made President of the Biology Club. If there was any work to be done or any help given “Dot” would co¬ operate and do her share. She was a jolly companion , a good sport, and a willing worker. We’re sure that if she keeps up the record she has set in High School she will make a grade A nurse. “Oskey” Editorial Committee; Class Treasurer 4; Dramatics 2, 4; Hallowe’en Committee 1, 2, 4; Junior Prom Committee; Marshal 3, 4; Glee Club 1, 2; Interclass Track 1, 3; Captain 2, 4; Hockey 1, 2, 3, 4; Interclass Basketball 1, 2, 3, 4; Basketball 2, 3; Captain 4; President Biology Club 4. [ 23 ] NORMA MAYBELLE TRACY Winter Street “Norm” Franklin “Love, sweetness, goodness in her person, shine.” All stand! Meet Normal You don’t know who she is? Well, she’s one of the most dependable and most active members of our class. She was our prize dancer, and took part in all the dancing programs of the high school, and also of “Fannie’s.” As our class secretary—well—need we say more? We wonder if those are “Frat” pins that Norma is adorning herself with? We are informed that they are speed pins—that she has received for her excellent typewriting ability. “Congratulations.” We hope that “Norm” will he as successful a secretary in business as she has been in high school.

JOHN AUSTIN 430 East Central Street “Johnnie” Franklin “By the work one knows the workman.” “Oh, who’s that? What’s he going to do? Is he the “Cat”?” Such were the many exclamations and screams upon Johnnie’s en¬ trance in “The Cat and The Canary.” Although Johnnie didn’t turn out to be the “Cat,” we sure haven’t recovered from the scare he gave us that night. As you have probably guessed, Johnnie ' s special line was dra¬ matics, and could he act? About the only time we ever saw “Johnnie” was when plays were in preparation, for he was one of the few industrious boys in our class and managed to skip off right after classes every day. And his evenings were very much occupied,—but not by work. “Johnnie” will not need us pushing him to succeed in what ever work he will take up, but we’ll be there just the same. Dramatics 2, 3, 4. CHARLES AVADANIAN “Charley” Bellingham “Silence, mother’s genius.” Charley was surely a quiet boy to everyone who knew him. Ever since we entered High School Charley has been interested in woodwork and every annual exhibition of the students’ work shows Charley leading the class in this art. Charley is always con¬ sulted by his fellow students when there is any doubt in their mind as to how to proceed. Charley intended going to Fitchburg Normal but I believe he has found a position as cabinet maker in which he can work up to the height of prosperity which he de¬ serves. In this work we all wish him the best of luck. Glee Club; Hallow r e’en Dance Committee. [ 24 ] ROBERT FRANCIS BOURBEAU Chestnut Street “Red” Franklin “Look for the Woman.” There’s no need to introduce “Red” as lie ' s so well known. You could easily distinguish Robert by his red hair, and the fact that he towered above everyone else. “Red” w : as especially pop¬ ular with the opposite sex, and he was continually writing letters to his fair friends. “Red” was also one of those “Athletic boys.” He played on the basketball team with great success. We don’t know what we’d have done without “Red” as our center. “Red " was also a mem¬ ber of the football team and did his share in winning games. We hope “Red” will be as successful in life as he was in making the basketball and football team. “Oskev” Financial Committee: Basketball 2, 3, 4; Football 3, 4; Baseball 4; Glee Club 1, 2, 3, 4; Band (Drum Major) 2, 3, 4; Interclass Basketball 1, 2, 3, 4; Junior Prom Committee; Dra¬ matics 3. FLORENCE WILLIAMS BAKER “Flossy” Franklin, Mass. “Speech is silver, Silence gold.” Quiet and demure, yet full of fun is “Flossy.” For four years she has “stood by,” a loyal and loving classmate. Always ready and willing to lend a helping hand to classmates in distress ; such will be the memories of " Flossy.” There is a rumor that she plans to attend a Business College and it seems quite probable, for Florence is an able business scholar. She may be considered as one of the best all round pals, for she has a true heart and makes a true companion. In her four years at Franklin High School she has won many friends and we are sure she will continue the same way throughout her life. Track 2. PHILIP NICHOLAS BAIONA Lincoln Street “Phil” Franklin “Dancing the whole night long.” “Phil” didn’t enter our ranks until our Sophomore year, but he soon became popular, as shown by the fact that he was elected Vice-President of our class the Junior Year. He was always ready to lend a helping hand, and when there was work to be done he was right there. His favorite pastime was dancing and singing, and perhaps he’ll be with Ziegfeld some day! Who knows? Every Friday “Phil” rushed for the 2:17 train for Boston. We wondered what the attraction was. Philip expects to go to Fitch¬ burg Normal, and become a teacher. We’re wishing him the best of luck for one of the “Best!” Glee Club 2, 3, 4; Junior Prom Committee; Football 3, 4; Dramatics 4; Prize Speaking 4; “Oskey” Financial Committee; Ring Committee 4. [ 25 ] MARION BARTLETT Franklin, Mass. Marion was one of the quiet people of our class, but even though she was quiet she always saw the funny side of things. Marion was one of the hard-working General Course girls. She excelled in sewing and cooking. The dresses she made al¬ ways were sew r ed to perfection, to say nothing of being good looking. What a good house-wife Marion will make some one! Marion always took part in our inter-class track meets and her good work helped us out a lot even though we can ' t boast of winning. We hope Marion w r ill have a happy career—we wish her lots of luck for whatever she undertakes. Glee Club 1, 2, 3, 4; Track. JOHN CLAPP Union Street “Johnny” Franklin “A Smile for each—A Friend for all.” Johnny entered High School in our class and has proven worthy of his station all along. During his High School career he has led the track team for four years. If he was not always cap¬ tain he was high scorer. Johnny also has played basketball for three years. His last year was broken up because of injuries to his foot. During our Junior year he held the office of Treasurer at the removal of Richard Lynn from town. After graduation he intends to go to school at Mercersburg, and as this school spon¬ sors track we believe Johnny will sail right through to success, for which he has our best wishes.

MADELEINE CLARK School Street “Mad” Franklin, Mass. ‘‘Laugh and the World Laughs With You.” This holds true for “Mad” because the whole class always laughs with “Mad” when she bursts out “all of a sudden.” “Mad” not only furnished laughter for the class but furnished her brains for the intellectual side of it. She never went out for Athletics much, but always a “Good Sport” in all the track meets, taking her part in the bag race and the three legged race. “Mad” may be a fortune teller, a teacher, or a director’s as¬ sistant of a jazz orchestra. Who knows? Whatever field you do try, “Mad,” we wish you loads of luck.

In football he brought down men much larger than himself. In basketball he played on the second team and was one of the lead¬ ing “basket hangers.” Lloyd is also a good long-distance runner. While on the track team he placed in some meets in the mile event. Baseball is the sport that “Junk” is best in. He plays shortstop on the team and allows very few halls to go by him. “Junk” is a perfect example of what a good little man can do in sports! Football 3, 4; Basketball 2, 3, 4; Track 2; Hockey 2; Baseball 2, 3, 4. PERSIS CROWELL Maple Street “Perry” “Pers” Franklin “Thou hast so much wit and humor about thee.” “Pers” was alw-ays one of the most popular member s of our class. She was noted for her smile (grin) and her peals of laugh¬ ter. As she looked always on the bright side of life, being able to find a joke in everything, we found our classes to be incomplete without our “Pers.” “Perry’s” ability in athletics was like her laughter, always showing up on the most unexpected occasions. All through our high school days Perry’s home was a general hangout for all “gangs” of the school and many are the happy hours which have been enjoyed there at “Pers’ ” expense. We’re all with you. Pers, when you enter “Prep” School next year and we warn you not to put “too much Pep into Prep school.” " Oskey” Editorial Staff; Orchestra 1, 2; Junior Prom Com¬ mittee; Freshman Acquaintance Committee; Lit Club; Glee Club 4; Dramatics 1, 3, 4; Shakespearean Club 2; Interclass Track 1, 2, 3, 4; Hockey 3; Interclass Basketball 1, 2, 3, 4; Basketball 4. LINCOLN DANA Crescent Street “Line” Franklin “We are the music makers.” Lincoln is a good-natured fellow and is very popular with his classmates. He is one of the best drummers in the school and plays in both the orchestra and band. He is a fast basketball player and has played in interclass basketball and on the second team. Track is another sport that “Line” has taken part in. He is a good high-jumper and has won places in meets against other high schools and in interclass track meets. Lincoln wants to be a pharmacist and is going to prepare for this profession at Mass¬ achusetts Pharmaceutical College.

[ 27 ] LESTER DENNING North Park Street “Denny” Franklin Lester was one of the members of the business group of our class. Although he was quiet, and not so well known as some, he was a good friend to all. Lester w T as particularly interested in athletics, and went out for football, baseball, and track. He also played well in the interclass basketball games. We are not sure just what Lester is planning to do, but we know that he will go about it in his own quiet way and come out successful. Lester may not tell everything that he is going to do, but we know that he will accowmlish a lot. Football 3, 4; Baseball 2, 3, 4; Track 1, 2, 3, 4; Interclass Basketball 1, 2, 3, 4. ANTHONY D’ANIELLO Howard Street “Tony” Franklin “Full of wit and humor.” “Tony” was one more of the honorable class of ’29 who saw service on the champion Basketball Team. We know that there is no sense in our asking “Tony” who has his little gold basketball, for that goes without saving. When we did see “Tony,” which w r asn ' t very often, he always seemed to be verv much occupied. He was always wearing a grin, and we wondered curiously among ourselves if “grin” were catch¬ ing, as his side-partner was noted for “Its” grin. He plans to enter college next year, and although he isn’t certain which one it will be, we know that he will succeed.

MARY FICCO Alpine Place “Mary” Franklin “Her face was always wreathed in smiles.” Who is the girl with the laughing brown eyes? Why, that’s Mary, of course! Did anyone ever see Mary when she wasn’t smiling? I don ' t believe that anyone ever did. Although she may appear quiet, to those who know her, she is certainly merry enough. In basketball Mary was one of the Seniors who played on the team. She always played a fine game, and although the team suffered several defeats it was through no fault of Mary’s. We are uncertain just what Mary’s intentions are for the future, but we wish her the best of luck. Interclass Basketball 1, 2, 3, 4; Track 1, 2, 3, 4; Glee Club. [ 28 ] RAYMOND FEELEY Depot Street “Ray” Franklin Smiles galore—Wit encore. " Ray” helped our class to shine, especially in our Freshman year. He won the first prize in the Business Men’s contest. “Ray” is a fine fellow to have for a friend; he is a good sport, and is an outstanding figure in our class. “Ray” tried basketball one year and did very well for his first year, but he did not try again. Although “Ray” did not go out for sports, he was quite an athlete. He was a very active member of our class and served on several committees. Good luck, “Ray”, we all hope that you get the “break” you deserve! We wish you the best of luck in the future! Alden Club Prize ’26; Dramatics ’27; Class Prize ' 27; Hallow¬ e’en Dance Committee ’27. CORA FIELDS School Street “Cora” Franklin “Thy Modesty’s a Candle to Thy Merit.” Cora has been in our midst for four years, and during this time she has given almost every one of her schoolmates the impression of being a very quiet and modest scholar. Although her time was short for activities, she always was a willing helper when she was needed. She was an act ive member of the track team in her Freshman year, as well as a participant in the Fashion Show of the same year. Besides this, she also belonged to the Glee Club her Sophomore and Junior years. It is rumored about her that she is an aspirant to a business career in which we are sure she will attain success if she w ' orks as she did in High School. Best of Luck! Glee Club 2, 3; Track 1; Fashion Show 1. EDWARD FITZGERALD Peck Street “Eddy” “Fitz” Franklin “Eddy” has been a very busy boy all the time that he has been in high school. He w 7 as on the hockey team, pitched regular on the baseball team, and also belonged to the orchestra and the band. “Eddy” showed considerable skill in everything. " Eddy” has played the cornet for two orchestras in town, and is still blowing strong for one of them. Aside from all these ac¬ tivities that “Eddy” has been a part of, he manages to be with the old gang quite a bit. Although we know that he will succeed in the future, we wish him all the luck in the world. Hockey 2, 3; Baseball 1, 2, 3, 4; Band 1, 2, 3, 4; Glee Club 2, 3. [ 29 ] i LEONARD HOULE “Billy” South Bellingham “Still waters run deep.’’ May we introduce a member from Bellingham? Leonard came to us from Woonsocket two years ago, and has been with us ever since—in more ways than one. He has been called the “wise man” of his English class, and his occasional wise cracks were all the funnier for being so un¬ expected. He had plenty of class spirit, and w r as generally around when he was wanted. He had a quick smile, and a clever wit. Leonard was a hard working student, and undoubtedly has ambitions. However, he is undecided about next year, but we wish him the best of luck! BARBARA HUDSON Dean Avenue “Barb” Franklin “The Best Ever.” A most distinguished and very much honored all ' round class¬ mate is Barbara. Throughout her four years she has been one of the most popular members of the class. “Barb” was our lead¬ ing lady in nearly all of our plays, and we w r ere fortunate indeed to have her as leading lady in our Senior Class play, “The Cat and the Canary.” Her dramatic reputation has been fullv established. She was one of the peppiest girls in the class, one of the cleverest, with a good firm foundation of common sense. Barbara had many friends of both genders. She was a good dancer, a fine student, and a hard worker for her class. Our best wishes follow her, no matter where she goes. Best of luck, “Barb”!

WALTER KORNICKI Crook’s Corner “Waltz” Bellingham “Silence is Golden.” Walter Kornicki has been with our class for the last four years. As he comes from Bellingham most of us are unacquainted with him, because as soon as school is over he is away. We that know him in our class rooms realize he is a fellow worth knowing. Although time does not allow him to take part in many activities he is occasionally seen about the building on nights of social events and in all is a necessary member of our class. For his knowledge of books,—let us leave the decision to “Doc " ! May your path through life be sunny and pleasant, as it has seemed to lie in High School! L 30 j EDWARD KUSSMAUL Oak Street “Ed” “Eddie” Franklin Brown eyes, blond hair, our best athlete and all ’round good sport, that’s “Eddie”! In our Freshman and Sophomore years he was rather shy and retiring, but my, how he has changed! “Ed¬ die” was very much in demand by the Freshman girls, or perhaps we should say by “a Freshman girl.” Last year “Eddie” played as a guard on the second team in basketball. This year his brilliant playing won for him a place in the hearts of all the enthusiastic basketball followers. Good luck, “Ed”, in whatever profession you take up, and remember the many friends at Franklin High School who will not forget you. “Oskey” Editorial Committee 4; Marshal 3, 4; Basketball; Football; Baseball Captain. JEANETTE LABASTIE Maple Street “Jean” Franklin “Brightest from Obscurity.” Jeanette was one of the quiet high school pals, but she could show us a lot about music. She was one of the leading violinists in the orchestra, and was very faithful. Jeanette also had a good voice and a merry heart which worked wonders together. “Jean” was not particularly athletic but was an energetic student. She was popular with those who really knew her, and respected by those who were less familiar with her true self. What’s more, Jeanette had a beauty all her own with her heavy black hair and clear skin. Here’s to your success in Business School, Jeanette! Orchestra 1, 2, 3, 4; Glee Club 1, 2, 3, 4; Lit.

HOWARD LAUNDRY Union Street “Flash” Franklin “With Thee Conversing Forgets All Time.” This, friends, is Howard, otherwise known as “Flash,” probably on account of his spe ' ed on the track and in ice hockey. Got the blues! Harold will cure them, especially if “Mike’s” along to put in his " wise cracks”! Howard’s wit gained him many a friend. But, alas! One of those athletic girls got him! The plot thickens —well, Howard is an ardent lover of “Roses.” Good luck to you, Howard! We hope you are as successful in the medical pro¬ fession as you were in High School! Track 1, 2, 3, 4; Lit.

During that year we w T ere very successful in everything we under¬ took, thanks largely to “Al’s” ability as a president! When “Al” first came to High School he made the football squad and since then he has improved greatly each year till in his last year he was elected Captain. Aside from his interest in football, at school, he was very quiet hut could make plenty of noise when the time cam e to do so. Although we don’t know the line that he is to follow we wish him the best of luck for a prosperous future. Football 1, 2, 3, 4; President 2; Committee 3; Hallowe ' en Com¬ mittee 2. CELIA LAMOTHE “Cee” Franklin “Happy as the Day is Long.” “Cee " was one of the athletic girls of the class—with a smile for everyone. She was one of the crowd that haunted the rear corridor at noon where the gay laughter made the welkin ring! Celia was a business student and a happy member of the Commer¬ cial group. She was full of fun and a grand good sport equally ready for work or play. With her jolly sense of humor she was an asset to any group. Basketball was her favorite sport and she played it well. “Cee " is preparing to enter the business world next year and we all wish her the best of luck.

CHARLES MASI North Park Street “Charley” Franklin “A Tireless Worker, True to his Trust.” “Charley " was one of the most popular boys in our class. He was the Business Manager of the “Oskey, " and deserved much praise for its success. “Charley” was an athlete, for he has done well in football, interclass basketball, and baseball. This year he was elected Captain of the hockey team. During his freshman year he played the violin in th ' e Orchestra. Later he studied the trombone and played in both the Orchestra and Band. In his Junior year “Charley” was elected Treasurer of the Band, and in his Senior year he was elected President. He intends to enter Fitchburg Normal School next year, and become a teacher.

[ 32 ] thomas McCarthy Garfield Street “Tom” Franklin “A Heart as big as all Outdoors.” Well known far and near was “Toni. " A sense of jollity per¬ vaded the whole atmosphere wherever he was found. We never saw him in a hurry and we never knew him to crab. He was a favorite everywhere and had many friends, especially among the ladies. He also cut a fine figure in dramatics as he proved by his performance in the role of a lawyer in “The Cat and the Canary.” His good-nature was so evident that he was voted for the Statis¬ tics as the best natured hoy. He was a fine dancer and a fa¬ miliar figure at all the dances. He is undecided about next year hut we wish him the best of luck! Dramatics 4; Horace Mann Lit. Club 1, 2, 3, 4; Glee Club 2, 3, 4. ROBERT McMORROW Lincoln Street “Bob,” “Robby” Franklin “Born for an actor he seemed, With grace to win with heart to hold.” Curtain aside! Ladies and Gentlemen, we will now present to you one of our most clever class actors, Robert McMorrow. “Bob” joined us in his Sophomore year, coming from the big “Bean Town.” We shall never forget his superb acting in “Father and the Boys” and “The Cat and the Canary,” also his place in the faculty play. Some honor, Bob! Bob is a good player off the stage as well as on. “Bob” has also distinguished himself as a sheik. He is quite a favorite with the opposite sex. He is going to en¬ ter the business world. However, we feel as though Bob belongs to the stage. Our best wishes go with you, Bob.

FRANCIS THOMAS McGUIRE Peck Street “Mac” Franklin “Never trouble trouble till trouble troubles you.” “Mac” has shown us for two years just what he is worth. H ' e was a good scholar throughout the four years and he did his bit in athletics. “Mac” was on the first team for two years in basketball and held the position of guard. Both years that “Mac” was on the first team, the Blue and White was represented by championship teams. He was picked for the All-Tournament Guard on the first team at the Brockton Tourney. Not only did he shine in basketball, but he was one of the best and hardest players that ever represented the Blue and White. We all wish him luck for the future! Basketball 3, 4; Football 2, 3, 4; Manager Baseball 4; Vice- President Band 1, 2, 4. [ 33 ] § .... LEAFY DIANE MACDONALD Cottage Street “Mac” Franklin “Smiles Galore—Wit Encore.” Leafy was one of the best natured of our classmates. She was always ready with a “wise crack,” and whenever we saw her she had a grin from ear to ear. Her motto was “Smile and the world smiles with you, cry and you cry alone.” Leafy was hardly ever in school when the 8:25 bell rang. You usually saw her strolling into school at the beginning of the first period. Dancing seemed to take up a lot of her time and you could alwavs hear her telling someone what dance she had been to, or was going to. Leafy was well liked by all her classmates, and we hope that she will always retain her sunny smile and good nature! Basketball 3; Baseball 2; Dramatics 3, 4. Ambrose McWilliams West Street “Mac,” “Mickey” Franklin “The Man who blushes is not all Beast.” Ambrose has spent four years with us and yet we seem to know comparatively little about him. Why, we ask, are boys so shy? But no! We do know that “Mickey” has proven that he has “the goods,” for he has been a loyal baseball player and has attained a position on the first team in basketball and that is a great deal to be proud of. Again, “Mickey” needs to be compli¬ mented, this time for bravery. For his whole Senior Year he was the only boy in the Shorthand and Typewriting 4B classes. And a proud possessor of one of those golden basketballs, a reward for his work on the team. Just w ' hat he later intends to do is un¬ known but we wish him the best of luck to guide his footsteps in later years. Basketball ’27, ’29;—Interclass ’28; Baseball ’27, ’28, ’29; Botour Club ’28. CLARE McMORROW Lincoln Street “Claie” Franklin “I won’t “Budge” without a man!” Clare entered our class in the Sophomore year. During the first year of her presence we became very well acquainted with her. During our Junior year she served on Prom Committee, and in all, proved herself worthy of attention, especially by some of the male members of the school. Her Senior year was the great¬ est of all for her and the class. She featured in dramatics, having a part in the school play, “The Cat and the Canary.” She next won the Interclass Speaking Contest and was chosen to represent the school in the Interscholastic Contest at Mansfield, at which she won first prize, and thus helped bring home the Singleton Cup for the school.

[ 34 ] LEO MURRAY Governor Avenue “Sheik” South Bellingham “He never runs out of smiles.” Leo was one of the students from Bellingham and therefore couldn’t be with us as much as we would like to have had him. As well as being one of the best of friends, Leo was also a talented violinist. He will be greatly missed by the orchestra next year as he was one of its best and most faithful members. His pleasing personality and good nature made him popular with everyone. Leo was usually smiling, and always had a kind word for every¬ one. Orchestra ’29. HELEN MILLER Pond Street Helen Franklin “A friend to all who knew her.” Helen has been an active member of the Business Division of our class for its brief four years in High School. During this time she has been a studious worker, and has always been willing to do more than her share when called upon. Besides this work Helen has also been a member of the Botour Club, The Glee Club, and the Track Team. Although she spent a great deal of her time at these things, she managed to do her studying faithfully and was always one of the best scholars of the class. Her willing manner and her gi 4 eat desire to please made her a fine classmate and a true friend. Track 1, 2, 3, 4; Glee Club 1, 2, 3, 4; Botour Club 3. ARTHUR MOORE Washington Street “Art” Franklin “Silent but Observant” Arthur is the type of fellow who is always willing to help his friends. He has taken an active part in interclass sports and has been on the track team for one season. In interclass basket¬ ball “Art” did his share in “sinking” baskets. He won some places in the running in the interclass track meets.. When on the school track team “Art” ran in the quarter-mile. He knows a gr’eat deal about automobile motors and likes nothing better than to work on them. Well, we hope he’ll make a good mechanic! We wish you the best of Luck, “Art!” Track 3; Interclass Track 2, 3, 4; Interclass Basketball 1, 2, 3. [ 35 ] HELEN NOWLAND Pond Street “Kid” Franklin “Oh, this Learning! What a thing it is. " “Kid " was the Kid who furnished the major part of the mer¬ riment for the class of ’29. She seemed to be always disgusted with herself and life in general, relieving herself with her favorite expressions on every occasion. Altho “Kid” lived out in the " Styx " she always managed with the aid of beloved “Liz Buz” to be with us most of the time. “Kid” never went in for athletics a great deal altho she did manage to participate in our interclass track meets. “Kid " also enjoyed horses, and was riding horseback wdienever shfe could, provided she could catch the horse. “Kid” plans to enter Wheaton and become a teacher. We wish her the best of luck in her future work. Track 1, 2, 3, 4; Shakespearean Club 2; Literary Club; Glee Club 4; Hallowe’en Committee 3, 4. EMMA N. OSGOOD Emmons Street “Emmy,” “Ozzy” Franklin Emma was one of our livelier girls wdio appreciated a shiny smooth dance floor. Her feet certainly can fly! But, Emma could do a great deal more than dance and once her shoulder was put against the wheel it was certainly set to rolling. Often the taps of her heels could be heard just as the last bell was ringing and soon her smiling face would appear in the doorway of Room 112. Emma was a leader, a sportswoman, and, as well, an able politi¬ cian especially towards Woman Suffrage. We are told she plans to go in training in the Massachusetts General Hospital and we are sure her patients will be glad she de¬ cided upon nursing for her occupation.

AMELIA PALUMBO Fisher Street Franklin “High attempts have never shame.” Amelia was one of the girls who belonged to the Normal group. Not only was she quiet and studious, but she also did her share in athletics. Whether it was track or basketball, Amelia was always willing to do her part toward bringing her class out victorious. Throughout her four years in high school she played basketball, both interclass and on the first and second teams. At dances Amelia always had her share of partners, and she deserved them, too! On the whole Amelia was an “all ’round " sport, as shown by the number of things she attempted. Amelia is planning to be a physical director, and we know from the ability which she has shown at high school that she will be a successful one.

Her speaking ability won her a place in the prize-speaking prelimin¬ aries. Who can ' t remember her as a Sophomore reciting her “Little Boy Blue.’’ Helen served on the Oskey financial committee, and was a willing member of our class. Her masculine interests were a deep mystery, but we’re sure she must have had them. Who wouldn’t ? Helen was a member of the Lit Club, and took part in the Debate, and though the Seniors lost she did her best, which is typical of her. Helen has “It " but she is rather conserva¬ tive with it among her classmates. However, we’re not sure that our old friend Dean hasn’t discovered some of “It.” Glee Club 1, 2, 3, 4; Shakespearean Club; Interclass Track 1, 2, 3, 4; Lit Club 1, 2, 3, 4; Debate 4. CHRISTY DOMINIC PALUMBO Uncas Avenue “Christy” Franklin “There’s no kick — Gosh, it makes you sick All by yourself in the moonlight.” " Oh, yes, this is Christy.” He was always singing some popu¬ lar tune as he came swinging down the hall, but we don’t entirely agree with his song, for there were not many nights Christy was all alone. Christy early distinguished himself in the Basketball art, and he played many a whirl-wind game for F. LI. S. Not only cn the Basketball floor was Christy a whirlwind! He wa s very fond of dancing and was to be found at every dance. No dance was complete without Christy whirling in and out on the floor. And cculd he dance? A Christy plans to enter Fitchburg Normal next fall, and if he whirls through Fitchburg as he whirled through Franklin High, the former will still be gasping for breath. Here’s to your success, Christy. Glee Club 1, 2, 3, 4; Band 2, 3, 4; Basketball 2, 3, 4; Track 2, 3. LUCY FRANCES PALLADINO 30 Cleveland Avenue “Lou” Franklin “Good things come in small packages. " Has anyone seen Lucy? Tracing that happy laugh straight into Room 112, there you were sure to find Lucy telling “Phil” her latest jokes. Yes, Lucy and “Phil " Baiona were great pals. Lucy was, without doubt, the smallest member of our class, but she surely did her share. Always ready and willing to help, Lucy has proved a most cheerful and interesting classmate. We have been informed that Lucy plans to attend a Business College next year and we are sure there she will scatter her sunshine as she did in the Franklin High School. We certainly wish the best of luck in future years to our loyal and loving pal, little “Lou.” Glee Club, ’26, ’27, ’28, ’29; Prize Speaking ’26, ’27, ’28, ’29; Botour Club ’28; Literary Society ' 29. [ 37 ] MARIE DOROTHY ROMAN California Avenue “Billy” South Bellingham, Mass. “The noblest Roman of them all.” From somewhere comes a burst of laughter and in the center of a group of girls you are sure to find Marie. Marie came to us from a Bellingham Grammar School and has proven her ability, for, she is third in the ranks of honor. We hear that she has intentions of entering a business college next year. Keep it up, Marie, and good luck to you! Marie is an able violinist and has been a member of our orchestra for four years. Who knows? Perhaps, some day we may hear of her as another genius in the vioiin world. It seems, however, more probable that Marie will follow a business career, for without a doubt, she is a woman of the Business World.

OLIVE RYAN Alpine Place “Rusty” Franklin “A smile for each — a good word for all.” Lively and full of fun and laughter was our friend “Rusty.” A thorough good sport and well known in school athletics was she and rarely seen without “Jean.” Wherever a burst of laughter was heard, there was Olive with her ready wit and quick come¬ back. Although Olive was a business girl to her fingertips, she also had a very pleasant and useful knowledge of the domestic arts. She was a competent member of the Home Economics class for three years, and many and varied were the products of her labors. Olive shone in basketball. It was her favorite game and she played it vigorously. In her Junior year she was captain of the class in the interclass games. She hopes to enter the business world next year and we wish her all success and good luck! Captain Junior Interclass Basketball; Basketball 2, 3; 4-H Club 2, 3. EVELYN RATTIE “Ev” Bellingham “The end crowns the work” ♦ " Ev” or the “silent partner” as one might call her, although a silent member of our class, took an active part in class activities. She took a great deal of interest in domestic affairs. “Ev” was always lending helping hands or rather brains, for when we had a particularly hard problem or anything pertaining to essays we always pitched on Evelyn to solve it. " Ev” took an active part in our annual track meets and scored most of the few points for our class. Studies? Oh, yes, “Ev” came off with one of the honors, you know. “Ev” hopes to enter Normal School in the near future and become a stern, hard teacher. She doesn’t appear very hard yet, but she still has a chance at Normal School to become “hardboiled.” However, we are right behind you, “Ev,” and wish you the best luck possible.

Rollie was one of the dramatic members of the class, taking leads in numerous plays. Needless to say he was one of Doc’s famous “satellites.” Rollie was a football player, not just a member of the squad, and he “played the game.” Football 3, 4; Dramatics 1, 2, 3, 4. CELIA SLOTNICK Elm Street “Ce” Franklin, Mass. “Happy as the day is long.” No matter what happened one never saw Celia without her smile which spread cheer over gloom and braced up those about her. As sbon as Celia appeared the other Celia of our class would he heard laughing and then we knew that “Ce” had brought a new joke from the “gang,” in Medway. Celia was a member of the business class and somehow it seemed she just could not take any¬ thing seriously. Perhaps it was that side of her nature that drew so many towards her, and endeared the hearts of many to her. She was a true friend to all and her character was indeed an asset to our class. Just what her future plans are we do not know, but we have a faint suspicion that she plans to attend a Business College, and we know she will prove a success.

She is a pal of greatest loyalty, a friend to all in distress. Surely the future years must hold a reward for the love and friendship which “Dot” has given her classmates for four years. Always cheerful, smiling, encouraging, and helping was our pal, “Dot.” She was one of the type known as “the best.” Basketball ’26, ’28; Literary Club ’26, ’27; Track ’26, ’27, ’28; Entertaining Committee for Hallowe’en Party ’27; Assembly Pro¬ gram ’29. [ 39 ] ISOLINA TABARANI Alpine Row “Izzy” Franklin, Mass. Isolina was another golden link in our class. She was quiet and shy, yet once she was really known she became a true pal. Always ready to help or furnish assistance, Isolina has won her way into the hearts of her classmates. In the typewriting room she proved that her ability could carry her far and her fingers could play music on the keys, which would satisfy any employer. Isolina has often proved an able secretary for Mr. Patty and her winning smile and willing hand won her friends everywhere. She was one of the “gang” that crowded the rear corridor at lunch period when someone twinkled the keys of the piano and chased the blues away. What her plans for the future are, we do not know, yet we are sure she will be a success in whatever she under¬ takes. Fashion Show ' 26; Glee Club ’29. FLORENCE BRITTON TUFTS Queen Street “Tuffy,” “Fritzy” Franklin “Whom Not Even Critics Criticize.” Of “Tuffy " one might say “prepared in mind and resources.” Florence ' s star shone night and day. She was always dated up ahead at dances and anything she attended was always in the paper! Why? Well, “Tuffy” is interested in The Press, even so far as being editor of The Oskey. She was our center on the basketball team and what a center she was! Florence was one of those regulars expected to bear the responsibility of class jobs, but she willingly accepted anything that would boost the class. It is sufficient to say of “Tuffy’s” scholastic ability that “The end crowns the work,” and “her power was not through repose.’ “Tuffy” wants to make some one happy by being a private secre¬ tary.

If “Mike” ever got other than A’s on his card, something was radically wrong! Not only was he an excellent student but he was a very successful athlete. “Mike " starred in track, his particular event being the quarter mile. He won several times in meets with other schools and he always placed in the first there. “Mike” was also entered in the Inter¬ scholastics. He took third in his heat.

She could often be seen third period diligently studying a Latin book, and there were always several friends (usually mas¬ culine) trying to help (?) her. She was deservedly popular, and was always willing to do her share in helping others. Although Marion did not enter strongly into athletics, she willingly did her part at track meets, and often came away with several points to her credit. As yet, Marion is undecided about her plans for next year. However we rest assured that anything she undertakes to do will be well done.

WALTER HOWARD WENTZEL Hartford Avenue “Walt” Bellingham “Speech is Silver —- Silence is Golden.” Walter never had much to say and he always took a hack seat, not because he couldn’t do things, but because he was quiet and bashful. “Walt " was popular with his classmates in spite of his noiselessness. Evervtime he had something to say, you could be sure it was worth while. He always studied diligently. Every- time we looked at him he had his nose in a hook. We presume that it was a school book. Of course he might have fooled us, but we don ' t think so. We haven ' t found out what Walter expects to do when he leaves high school but we know that whatever he attempts will be done well. LOUISE WOODWORTH Pond Street Franklin Louise is one of those quiet girls of whom we have several in our class. Living away from town, she isn’t always seen at our social activties. In spite of her quiet nature she has many friends and is liked by all. Louise spends a great deal of her time horseback riding (Pleasure can be found even in the “Styx”). In the summer she goes to camp where she has become a great swimmer. If we had a swimming team she would star, we know. Here also she has practiced track, in ' which she has helped us a great deal at our track meets. Louise is a hard working commercial student. She is very clever at arts and crafts, and intends to enter art school next year. We need not wish her success, for we know that she will be successful anyway. Track 1, 2; Glee Club.

She also was one of the laughing crowd found at noon in the rear corridor. “Milly” had a quiet sense of humor, and was always found with that “certain group” of business students, no matter where they were. “Milly” was shy and sweet, but thor¬ oughly modern in all her ways. She was a good business student, and knew nearly all the ins and outs of the commercial course.

He always likes a practical joke, even if he is the victim, and seldom refuses to do a favor for anyone. “Don” is very good in woodwork and has made a number of things which have brought forth much praise. He is also good in mechanical drawing and could easily be a good draftsman with a little more of training. When “Don” was a freshman he could sprint pretty fast. He won some places in the interclass meets between the freshmen and sophomores. Well, “Don,” we certainly wish you the best of luck! Interclass Track 1. EVELYN YADISERNIA Union Street “Yady” Franklin “A friend to all, and a grand, good sport.” Good looking? smiling? smartly dressed? — This is “Yady.” One of the best-loved and most popular girls of our class, you could be sure to find her on any day in the hall with a group of ardent admirers surrounding her. (And they were far from being all girls). Basketball, Baseball, Hockey, Track, or what have you? “Yady” would do it; nothing daunted her. In the latter part of our Senior year " Yady” had the distinction of being chosen “Miss Franklin.” Although you may think that Athletics was “Yady’s” only line, you are mistaken, for she excelled in dressmaking also and plans to take this up at a school next year. Whatever you do, we’ll be right behind, rooting for you.

[ 42 ] Class Boem 9 -o- Oh, Alma Mater, we bid adieu. Oh, Alma Mater, you have spread your light afar. Our Alma Mater, we placed our trust in you. Oh, Alma Mater, you have guided us thus far. And now with gratitude we bid adieu. Four years ago we entered as Freshmen green. Oh, kindly Mother, you did steer us day by day. Ah, then we did not know nor did we dream What glorious goal, before us, through your portals lay. Now, in your sight, we stand stalwart and clean. When we crossed the threshold of our Sophomore year, Our goal was shining in a brighter, clearer light. Kindly Mother, you had grown to us more dear. Today we find ourselves at the peak of our height. Always you have ruled by love and not by fear. As Juniors we lightly trod your kindly soil. Oh, kindly Mother, no worldly knowledge you denied. We strove to win; about us lay turmoil. Kindly Mother, with you rests our love and our pride ; You raised our hopes and lessened our toil. As Seniors we were often proud and haughty. How we swelled when we heard your just and worthy name ! Oh, our kindly Mother, have we vexed you? Have we deserted you, caused you anguish or pain? Oh, Mother, let us ever share your glory. Oh, Alma Mater, ’tis time to say adieu. We will pause, even though the minutes rush apace, To bow and bid a long farewell to you. We feel the surging of the throng to take our place So let us bid our final sad adieu. HELEN E. MILLER [ 43 ] lEiiitorial r | ' HE members of the Editorial Staff of the Oskey through their hard work and earnest endeavors have published this year hook with the hope that it may compare favorably with last year’s hook. They have worked untir¬ ingly and have tried to profit by the experience of last year’s editors, and to make this year hook a success. It is hoped that the work done this year will he one more step in the establishing of a permanent publication of a year hook in Franklin High School. [ 44 ] $mtl -o- T HE Franklin High School Band, which had only a few members when it was organized a few years ago, has steadily increased in size, and now has sixty-five members. This large organization is governed entirely by the students and has Principal A. T. Patty, its director, as faculty advisor. The band is self-supporting and has made all the money needed by playing for different affairs. On September 3, 1928, the band played in the Franklin Sesqui-Centennial Parade. The boys played well, and made a fine appearance. At the beginning of the school year the band held a meeting and elected its officers. Charles Masi was elected president; Edward Fitzgerald, vice-president; Francis McGuire, secretary; and Thomas McCarthy, treasurer. During the football season the band played at the football games. It led the parade of our team and the opposing team from the school to the field, where it played pieces occasionally to cheer our team. In November the band held a banquet, to which the faculty was invited, and each member brought a girl as a guest. A good meal, an entertaining program by local talent, and dancing were enjoyed by everyone present. At the banquet Mr. Patty was presented a gift by the band boys. In March the band accompanied the basketball team to the Brockton Tournament and played between the halves. On Horace Mann’s birthday the band led a parade of the school children, and played during the dedication exercises held at the monument erected to Horace Mann. On this occasion the boys wore new freshman caps, blue jerseys, and white pants, making a fine appearance. The band has been hired to play on Memorial Day, and it is now practising marching under the direction of Mr. M. L. Buchanan. It is considering numerous offers for out-of- town engagements, and is planning to give a series of concerts. The good work accomplished by the band is due a great deal to Mr. Patty, who has worked very hard to make it a success. Mr. Patty has given many boys an opportunity to study musical instruments, as he has taught a large number of the boys in the band how to play. This knowledge may be of great use to them later in life. [ 46 ] [ 47 ] ®ht (irrhpstru T HE orchestra has done very well this year. On numerous occasions it played fine classical music in such a manner as to please even the most critical listeners. This was made possible only through the hard work and co-operation of its members and able director, Mr. Alfred Webber. The rehearsals were held twice a week. The orchestra played on such occasions as the school play, “Father and The Boys, " the senior class play, “The Cat and The Canary, " the Alden Club, the Mother’s Club, the Horace Mann Literary Club, and numerous assemblies. The following students belong to the orchestra : piano — Frances Wigglesworth ; violins — Michael Vignone, concertmaster, Leo Murray, Mary Roman, Jeannette LaBastie, George O’Brien, Giovanni Sciaba, Robert Keefe, Rebello Cole, Gianetti Gianette, Clenric Hancock, Nicholas Socci, Elizabeth Wigglesworth; clarinet — Henry Houle; trumpets — John DeBaggis, Arthur Casey, Harold Williams; trombone — Charles Masi; drums — Lincoln Dana and Robert Bennett.

First: We desire that all the righteous debts and charges held against this class be kindly forgotten by our benefactors, for owing to the increase of crime and the price of shoe leather we have been unable to meet our debts in a lawful manner. Second: We give, devise, and becjueath all our money, bonds, securities, and estate, real or imaginary (mostly imaginary) to our protegees. To the teachers: To Miss Wiggin, the responsibility of making sophisticated seniors out of savage juniors. To “Doc,” the right to use a telescope so he won ' t have to say, " Alice, where art thou?” To Mr. Patty, an influx of Junior High S chool boys with inflated diaphragmatic powers so they may toot uproariously. To the Shepards, a bright flock of sheep for the oncoming year. To Mr. Hilbert, the privilege of unloading the ground facts on “Sanding a Project,” to his new Manual Training classes. To Mr. Abell, the right to buy a pair of oxen to pull the roller around the track. (Funds for the oxen will be given by the “Ladies’ Aid.”) For all the other members of the faculty, we wish as bright pupils as we have been, and much happiness for the future. To the Juniors : To Catherine Smith, Ed Ackley’s “gift of gab.” To “Luns” D’Errico, John Clapp’s running ability. To M. Casey, a free pass to the “Phil—ippines.” To Leo Litchenstein, the honor of assuming F. McGuire’s responsi¬ bility by singing “My Wild Irish Pose " at all the snappy parties. To Alden Besse, the right to use “Sure Shine” hair groom. To John Goodwin, the honor of pointing out all the most unsuspected parking places after high school dances. To the Junior boys, the famous school saying, “Lend me a dime, will ya?” [ 54 ] To Lois Alexander, this saying: “A loaf of bread and a pound of meat and all the mustard you can eat,” to advertise her father’s business. To John Costello, Demosthenes’ theory so he won’t have so many G’s in “Gimme.” To the Sophomores: To Bob Keefe, a position as editor-in-chief for the “Evening Dailv Dirt.” To Dorothy Stevens, a device for keeping her mail, (or is it male?) out of her father’s sight. To Gilson Hodgson, the right to say, “D-dd-cl ja hear this one?” To Isabelle Cochran, the solemn and serious traits of Persis Crowell. To Henry Houle, the right to sing “Just Before The Battle, Mother,” at report card time. To “Unc” Casey, the honor of being Franklin High School’s future sheik. To the Freshmen: To the Freshmen we leave the motto, “Eat, drink, and be merry, for tomorrow you may Die-t.” To Barbara Dunn, the right to be an inspiration to a local “Charlie Paddock.” To Melvin Pinsky, the privilege to measure his chest “when ex¬ panded,” twice daily. To Carrie Sandy, Claire McMorrow’s childish innocence. To Gordon Woodward, the right to sell his hair for steel wool. To Bob Bennett, the right to become more acquainted with snares other than those of the “Drum.” Lastly we hereby appoint Pete Husler Executor of the last Will an d Testament, hereby revoking all former wills by us made, in witness whereof, we have hereunto subscribed our names this 19th day of June in the year 1929. PRESIDENT: Halford Crockett.’ VICE-PRESIDENT: Edward Ackley. We whose names are hereto under-signed do certify that on this 19th day of June, 1929, the testators above named subscribed their names to this instrument in our presence and hearing, declaring the same to be their last will and testament and requested us and each of us to sign our names thereto as legal witnesses to the execution thereof which we hereby do in the presence of the testators and of each other on day of the date of the said will.

PHILIP BAIONA A bandage, to stop swelling. The poor thing, he has swelling spells! FLORENCE BAKER Small bells; so she will make herself heard wherever she goes. ROBERT BOURBEAU A double, to help him handle all his lady friends. We’re sorry the class cannot afford a typewriter to help him write his numerous letters. HAL CROCKETT An ear trumpet; so he ' ll know what’s going on. MADELINE CLARK A firecracker, to start her off. Boy, how she goes when she gets started. LESTER DENNING The funny papers; so he’ll not he able to he glum. Laugh, Lester, Laugh! LINCOLN DANA A fashion book; so he will be sure to have the correct dress. RAYMOND FEELEY An alarm clock; so he won’t break so many school tardy records. CORA FIELD A pair of dice. We hope she won’t get tough or wild. [ 56 ] BARBARA HUDSON A cart; so she may be carted around by her friends, if another accident should happen. JEANNETTE LaBASTIE A small car to get around in; so her classmates may discover more of her charm. HOWARD LAUNDRY A Rose. O, how Howard likes his Rose!

CHRISTY PALUMBO An elastic band, one end of which will be hitched to Bob McMorrow; so that whatever the distance he will be in touch with him always. EVELYN RATTIE A dunce’s cap. Perhaps if she trys it for a while, she will have more sympathy for the less fortunate. I 57 ] MARY ROMAN A lamb. Mary had a little lamb, you know, and our Mary hasn’t. Perhaps because she doesn’t need one. She’s such a merry little lamb herself. CELIA SLOTNICK A gag, for her loud giggles. Why Dutch? Well. Florence is inclined to like Dutchie-things.

And now we’re on our way to something higher, Though we do leave you so reluctantly. Chorus Dear Franklin High, we love you; Teachers, classmates too, we bid adieu. Honor, love, and praise we’ll gather, Then bestow them all with joy on you. When we grow old and gray, and look Back upon this happy day, Our thoughts of you will always be so true. Franklin High, so dear, goodbye ; We leave you now to start our life anew. Verse 2 Dear teachers one and all, our thanks we offer For all the things we’ve learned from you these years; And to our classmates gladly now we proffer Our place of honor with good luck and cheer. Repeat Chorus NORMA MAYBELLE TRACY [ 60 ] [ 61 ] THE JUNIOR CLASS i S Imttnr (Elaas History -O- TTAPPY is the nation that has no history” is a quotation often heard. Applying; this saying in the original meaning, to the class of 1930, we can truly say. “happy is the class that has no history,” for during our three years in high school, our course has been remarkably smooth, with no strifes or conflicts the narration of which would mar the pages of our records. Ours, indeed, is a happy history of the part we have played in the athletic, social, and classroom life of our school. The class of 1930 entered Franklin High School, September, 1926, with 144 members, — the largest entering class in the history of the school; the second class to enter the new Davis Thayer Building, and the first class to hold graduation exercises in the Auditorium. For here, on June 18, 1926, we received the Junior High School diplomas which entitled us to enter Franklin High School in September, as fidl-fledged freshmen. A few weeks after school opened, we were guests at the Annual Fresh¬ man Acquaintance Party, which was held in the High School Gymnasium. At this time we became acquainted with many of the upper classmen whom we did not know already. We held no class meetings our Freshman year and no class officers, were elected. This year, too, our class did not stand out greatly in Athletics, but many of our members were practising for the next year, and all were busy getting into the swing of High School work; standing in awe of the upper classes, and being like good children — “seen and not heard.” The following September we returned for our Sophomore year with 114 members, ready to show the Freshmen just what a Sophomore Class should do and be. This year when we organized, Prescott Mason was elected President of our class. In athletics this year we were represented on the football team by Everett Cataldo, William Dacey, John Dowling, Clifford Feeley, and Prescott and Preston Mason. In basket-ball, Everett Cataldo, Franklin High School’s best all around athlete, represented the class of 1930. On the base¬ ball team the members from our class were John Carr, Everett Cataldo, Francis Hamant, and Prescott and Preston Mason. This year we are proud [ 62 ] 3 V to say that the class of 1930 were winners in the American League of our interclass games. Tn the spring many of these in our class went out for Prize Speaking, and ably represented their class in the Preliminary Speaking Contest. Last September, the class of 1930 returned to High School as Juniors, with a membership of 101. Early in the year we elected our class officers. Robert Farrington fills the responsible position of Class President. John Costello is Vice-President. Prescott Mason, Secretary, and Blanche Moore, Treasurer. This year Lincoln MacDonald and John Carr, in addition to those of last year, represented 1930 in football, and Prescott Mason has been elected captain for the coming year. On the championship basketball team we were represented by Prescott Mason and Everett Cataldo. The latter has been re-elected Captain for the next season. In baseball Dale Winters has joined those representing the Junior Class. On the girls’ basket-ball team. Mary Costello, Mary O’Donnell, Anna Roberts, Florence Shultz, and Elizabeth Daily were the representatives of 1930. In dramatics, too. this year, many of our members have taken part, appearing in the High School Play, “Father and The Boys,” which was con¬ sidered one of the best plays ever given by the school. Others have done their share in upholding the various other organizations of the school, — Frances Wigglesworth and George O’Brien being in the orchestra, and many in the band. In January, in the High School Gymnasium, the Junior Class gave a dance, which was well attended and which was a general success. This year, again, many of our members were in the Preliminary Prize Speaking Contest. In April the Alden Club Prize Essay was announced and the winner was Alice Hale, of the Junior Class. The Junior reception to the Seniors is only a few days away and plans are now being completed for the big event of our Junior year, — The “Junior Prom.” Then soon will come the final examinations and Commencement, when the class of 1929, our companions in Franklin High School for three happy years, will join the ranks of the Alumni, and we of the Junior Class will become Seniors. Each year so far has seen some members drop from our class, but we hope that no more will find it necessary to leave, so that we who entered as the largest class in the history of the school, may be the largest class to graduate from Franklin High School — the largest class, — the finest class, — the Class of 1930! [ 63 ] WIjo’h KUhn 3Fiftmt feara if mm Nmu Dorothy Abbott “Dot” is now an attorney-general, and ’tis rumored that she recently lost a case by leaving it out in the vestibule of the court-room. We never thought this of “Dot,” as she was very exacting in High School. Charles Avadanian and Donald Woodward " Charley” is now in business for himself in South Cufflink. We hear that he is doing quite well by making refrigerating cabinets for the natives. As we all know, “Charley” is not greedy. He promptly let Donald Woodward know of the fact and now Donald is transporting ice daily from North Icicle. Amelia Palumbo and Olive Ryan Amelia and Olive have a dainty little doughnut shop on Main street. Amelia attributes their success to Olive’s uncanny ability to sell the holes in the doughnuts, to be used as filling for macaroni. John Clapp John is now a living advertisement for “Fleetwing” sneakers. His recent act of publicity was running to East Ether and back, using only one pair of sneakers during the whole trip. We always knew “Johnny” was a fast boy. Norma Tracy Always smiling if not dancing, Norma danced her way into Ziegfield’s Follies and now is being starred with Eddie Dowling in that well known Musical Comedy, “Dancing Yo’ Way to Dixie.” Albert Ledbury Due to “Doc’s” teaching, “Al” gained much information concerning the subject of electricity. So much so that he recently made application for a position with the U. L. and P. Co. and was readily accepted. The nature of his work is quite vague, although reports have it that he is picking currents from the wires and likes it. Lucy Palladino Lucy is now running a Beauty Parlor and has attained quite a reputation, as she is able to climb up on one’s shoulders and perform the operation with ease. Francis McGuire When last we saw Francis he was engaged as a salesman in the vege¬ table department of the Fi-Na-St. Owing to his close contact with the foods for quite a space of time he has learned to eat them at any time. At this time his favorite is carrots and he says they can’t be beet. Dorothy Stewart Dorothy is now running a tea-room on the Cape. Success will surely be all hers until she starts running it on the “Cuff.” Anthony D’Aniello “Tony” was always considered a brainy boy in H. S. and after he gradu¬ ated he concocted a solution with which he inoculates growing pine trees, causing the plant to bear needles that are commercially being used as “Pine Scented” toothpicks. “Tony” modestly gives all the credit to “Doc,” his former professor in Chemistry. [ 64 ] I 65 j Leafy MacDonald Leafy was always cheerful and gay in High School, but seeing the error of her ways, organized a club composed only of females whose object is to better the U. S. for future generations. This club strictly prohibits its members from laughing unnecessarily, and most of all is strictly against dancing. Charles Masi “Charley” always wanted to he a teacher and after his graduation he set out to accomplish his aims. After going to Fitchburg Normal he tried to get a position, hut since, as we all know, this field is fairly well crowded, he had to resort to a position teaching a kindergarten. At present he has six pupils, ages ranging from two to two and one-half years. His school is very well known and we are sure he will be successful if he makes the age limit a little higher. Marion Bartlett Marion is now a governess in an Orphan Asylum and is doing quite well considering the Asylum is in China. Marion finds the Chinese do not speak exactly as we do. Thomas McCarthy and Robert McMorrow Because of the training received in High School from “Doc” Frazer, these two boys decided to further the Thespian art. They journeyed out to Hollywood by means of Donahue’s fish cart and arrived there safely a little the worse for the wear and tear of the journey. After serving time as extras they ousted the famous Beery-Halton team and are now affording the public plenty of fun and comedy. Marion Whelan Marion, like Leafy, turned out to be something we never imagined. She is now Hostess at “Live and Learn,” or “Give and Earn” Night Club in Broadway’s busiest section. Walter Kornicki Walter turned out just as most of us thought he would, an expert in the study of physics. Recently he made a discovery that has baffled the sci¬ entists for ages. He found out why Ivory soap floats while ivory sinks. If there is any doubt in your minds, see Walt for particulars. Celia Lamothe Celia, you remember, worked in the Five and Ten during her last vear of school and with the experience gained there she is now a successful col¬ lector of old coins. Up to date she is quoted as saying that she has yet to find any coin quite so odd as those she saw in the Five and Ten. Lloyd Crandall Lloyd was always a quiet fellow. There’s a saying. “Still water runs deep,” but Lloyd put the maxim blooey. He claims still water runs high, for no sooner had he received his sheepskin than he accepted a position with the High and Higher expert steeple-jacks. Persis Crowell Persis has at last found something to do. After graduating from finish¬ ing school she thought for a while it had finished her, but no. A lover of adventure, she has joined a circus in the role of an acrobat, and using her former talent in squirming out of or into tight places, she is quite a successful member of the troupe. [ 66 j Leonard Houle Leonard’s ambition was always to be a doctor, and at last he has realized his dreams. He is a well-practiced veterinarian. Recently he discovered a method for getting rid of fleas. He says that we must wash the animal in alcohol. This tasty liquid will be imbibed by the ambitious fleas and true to form they will become inebriated in a short time and wander unknowingly from the dog. Edwin Fitzgerald Fitzy’s ambition was always, through his four years at High School, to be a cornet player. He tooted continually and at last mastered the art. But as we all know, the Vitaphone has made orchestras so few that he could not break in, and he has been forced t o take a job in the circus, blowing up balloons for the youngsters. Well, “Eddy,” never give up. Barnum started feeding elephants and after a while the elephants were feeding him. Mary Ficco Mary, as we all know, had a smile for all in High School, and what a smile that was, made up of ruddy lips and a row of pearly teeth ! During her High School career she had several offers from the various tooth paste com¬ panies all over the country. But being of a quiet temperament she declined all these until she became an alumna. She now is one of the most sought- out models in the “States.” Edward Kussmaul “Eddie,” well known to us as a ball player, recently copped a contract with the New York Giants. Mr. McGraw needed a new catcher and finding “Eddie” an easy-going catcher, gave him a chance. I guess we’ll all agree that Mr. McGraw hasn’t gone wrong. Evelyn Yadisernia Evelyn has tried all the devices handed down to us by Cleopatra for win¬ ning members of the male sex. While in High School she was very success¬ ful as hostess to the basketball players. Basing her methods on this, she has become cook in the household of one of America’s most promising business men. Good luck, Evelyn, you now fully realize the shortest way to a man’s heart is through his stomach. Michael Vignone “Mike,” after completing his four years at F. H. S., decided to go to Harvard. At present he is a professor of electrical construction. During his spare time he stumbled over a certain method of wiring and fell upon a plan that caused electric lights to be blown out. This is, indeed, a labor saving device and was welcomed into every home. Harold Rollinson and John Austin As we all know that Harold was cpiite interested in mechanical devices, due to his experiences at his father’s garage, it does not seem at all astonish¬ ing to find him the one and only expert mechanic on an auto-dice throwing machine. Mr. Austin, formerly known to us as John, is credited with the original invention of the aforesaid machine. His expertness he also credits to Mr. Rollinson’s garage. The two boys, we must remember, always tackled their problems together in High School.

He returned in June all ready for next year’s work. -o- npinnanre ftear This year, healthy and well again. “Doc” planned great things for the High School and we were not disappointed. Our “Lit” Club Meetings were almost wholly dependent on “Doc” and he presented many one-act plays which everyone enjoyed. Hallowe’en was celebrated with “The Wedding Present” at which the “Sophs” were only spectators. “The Three Wise Fools,” the annual school play, was presented Febru¬ ary 28 and March 1. It was considered one of the best school plays ever put on. Thanks to “Doc.” The characters in the play were as follows: Theodore Finley.Lawrence Keating Dr. Richard Gaunt.William Cody Hon.

Robert ' Bourbeau, Harold Rollinson, and Ray Feeley, were allowed to he in the play, and although the Seniors believed the only duty of these Juniors was to carry the hags, we feel differently on that subject. The Christmas play, “Nellijumbo,” was cast entirely for the Seniors. We awaited the annual play, “Merton of the Movies,” with as much anticipa¬ tion as ever. The Cast: Amos G. Gashwiler. Elmer Huff.

These were “The Flattering Word” and “The Ghost Hunters.” In this entertainment the Seniors, Persis Crowell, Dorothy Abbott, Edward Ackley, and Barbara Hudson had parts.

" It was a “howling success,” if one may judge from the sounds that came from both the stage and the audience. In the estimation of the Seniors, it even outdid the annual school play in every way.

I his ends the dramatic career of the members of the class of 1929. But no ! One of our classmates, Edward Ackley, is looking forward to a stage career as a profession. We expect great things from him and wish him the best of luck. f 72 ] i ,!x I ATHLETICS I [ 73 ] i Jfafltball The first call for football candidates was answered by forty-five boys, including ten veterans. After two weeks of strenuous workouts. Coach Hilbert had rounded out a fast eleven to face Medway, September 23. Franklin was outweighed by the smaller town boys, but by hard playing Cataldo scored for us in the first quarter. Medway quickly retaliated and tied the score before the half ended. The second half was all Franklin, and Cataldo again made a touchdown, the final score being 12-6. “Charley” Masi and “Leelac” Cataldo played a fine game for Franklin. The first home game was with Foxboro. The first half was about even all the way, Foxboro furnishing stiff opposition. The second half began with Franklin opening up on a series of plunges and passes, and touchdowns by Kussmaul, Cataldo, and Prescott Mason resulted. During this time Foxboro was held scoreless. The injury of Captain Ledbury, who played a great game the first half, marred our success. A week later a strong team came from Needham, and although the Blue and White boys fought hard, Needham carried off a hard earned 18-0 victory. “Hal” Crockett’s fine playing made Franklin’s centers impassable, and Lloyd Crandall played a fine game at end in place of the injured Captain Ledbury. The next test for Franklin was Canton at Canton. Here Franklin played all- around excellent football against a heavy but inexperienced team, and the result a 20-0 victory. The whole squad was used in this game and the “subs” played a commendable game. “Fran” McGuire and the Mason twins played exceptionally well during the game. This is the first time in history that a Canton team has been beaten by Franklin. With the whole squad in fine shape, Coach Hilbert took his charges to Milford, where six thousand spectators saw the greatest game of the season. The opening of the game saw Franklin march down the field for thirty-five yards, only to be stopped. This was the only offensive thrust during the whole game because both teams played a very tight defense. Franklin gained on the exchanges of punts during the encounter but they were useless. A touchdown was averted when Captain Ledbury recovered a Milford fumble on our five yard line. A few minutes later the whistle blew ending the game in a scoreless tie. Two runs with intercepted passes by Cataldo, and the defensive work of “Bob” Bourbeau and Captain Ledbury featured. The final game of the season was with Walpole on the Theron Metcalf field. Both teams played a fine game but the breaks were with Walpole. They completely out¬ weighed us, hut we fought hard and the result was a 13-0 victory for Walpole. Their first touchdown was scored on a long pass, and the second resulted by a series of line plunges. “Line” MacDonald was the outstanding player of the home team, his tackling, especially, deserving comment. The team of 1928 showed a decided improvement over other years. Although there were only six games on the schedule, it was a most difficult one. Captain Ledbury, a veteran of four years, was the outstanding player of the team. “Fran” McGuire at the other end stopped many opposing hacks and caught passes from all angles. The tackle positions were held down by “Bob” Bourbeau and Preston Mason. Their hard playing helped to make Franklin’s line a stone wall. Harold Rollinson also played a good game at tackle. “Line " MacDonald was the best guard on the team, but Houle, Baiona and Ivornicki gave a creditable showing. Next year’s team will feel the loss of “Hal” Crockett, the regular center for two years. It was his accurate passing and fine defensive work that made Franklin a formid¬ able team. “Ed” Kussmaul was the regular quarter-back, and he played a heady game all season. “Charlie” Masi, Prescott Mason, and “Leelac” Cataldo completed the veteran backfield, and this work was par excellence. Masi was a hard man to get hold of when he got under way. The passing and punting was executed by Mason, and he was ready to carry the ball any time. Cataldo was the leading scorer, and he was an important cog in the Franklin defence. The credit must be given to Crandall, Denning, Tracy, Cottrell, and Feeley, who played real football when they were sent in. Prescott Mason was elected Captain for 1930, and under his leadership, and Mr. Hilbert’s coaching, Franklin should have another successful team.

Coach Hilbert has ten lettermen to work with, and with any kind of “breaks,” they should have a successful season. “Billy” Tracy will be behind the bat this year. His throwing arm has developed and he is a consistent hitter. He is only a sophomore and should be a star, before he graduates. The only available veteran pitcher is “Ed” Fitzgerald, and his work in the first few games that have been played, has been excellent. “Bob” Thompson can take a turn on the mound if he is needed. The infield will consist of Crockett, McWilliams. Crandall, and Cataldo. They are all veterans and are considered real ball players. Franklin has a veteran outfield in “Ed” Kussmaul, Prescott and Preston Mason. They are all hard hitters and steady fielders. This is only the second year Mr. Hilbert has coached baseball and a steady improvement is expected under his coaching. “Cliff” is the popular little Manager of our team. [ 77 1 0 B Soya’ laakrtball Franklin High School was represented by the best quintet in the history of the school. This is clearly shown by the results of a campaign of twenty-nine games. Of these, twenty-three were victories for Franklin. We won the Brockton Tourney for South Shore High Schools, and were picked to represent this district in the M. I. T. Tournament at Cambridge. The first game in the South Shore Tournament was with Oliver Ames High School of North Easton. This was the fourth game in one week for the Blue and White boys and they were tired, beyond doubt. The result of a close game was 36 to 31 in our favor. But after a week ' s rest, Franklin took Middleboro in the Semi-Finals by a score of 45 to 15. The next night saw Franklin defeat Aldington and win the handsome Kiwanis trophy, which was presented to Captain Cataldo. The cool headwork and coaching of Mr. Hilbert was an important factor in the team ' s playing, during the tournament. The following Tuesday Franklin went to Woonsocket where one of the most thrill¬ ing and exciting games in the history of the school was played, before 1200 fans. The championship Woonsocket team finally won in an overtime period by the score of 24 to 22. Two days later our opponent was Arlington, the defending champion of the M. I. T. Tournament at Cambridge. The boys showed the effects of the strenuous Woonsocket game and they were way off form. The result w T as Arlington 25, Franklin 15. The final game of the year was with the Boston Boys’ Club at the local gym. We won by a score of 24 to 20. The proceeds of this game went for sweaters for the players. The team was captained this year by Everett “Leelac” Cataldo. He played forward and was one of the highest scorers. His floorwork was outstanding and he had an exceptionally good eye. “Leelac”was re-elected Captain forthe season of ’29-’30 and he deserves the position. Francis McGuire still holds the distinction of keeping his man almost scoreless for the entire season. This is “Mac’s” second year as a regular, and he is the leading scorer among the guards. He will be greatly missed next year. Robert Bourbeau was our six-foot-four center, and was the high scorer for the season. If one saw him play, he could hardly doubt this fact, for " Red” certainly dropped them through the hoop with ease. At center “Red” played a great game, both on offense and defense. He was the only one who could get going in the Arlington game, scoring ten out of fifteen points. The Blue and White wall surely miss “Red” next year, because he was a big reason for our success this year. Ambrose McWilliams played in nearly every game. He was capable of playing any posi¬ tion and he had a good eye for the basket. “Ham” is another boy who will graduate in June. “Eddy” Kussmaul was a natural-born basketball player, because in 1928 he made his first attempt at basketball and became a regular on the second team. His next year he did so well that he played guard alternately with Mason on the first team. “Eddy” was a rugged boy and played an excellent defensive game. His absence will be noticed in next year’s lineup. “Billy” Tracy is another young fellow who is bound to make good. “Billy” is only a sophomore but he plays like a veteran and has developed a good eye for the basket. He will be “dropping them in” again next year. “Christy” Palumbo alternated at forward with Tracy and he played real basketball. “Christy” kept the team in good humor while on the trips but he was serious when on the floor. He had a good eye for the basket and was one of the leading scorers. He will be missed in next year’s lineup. Prescott Mason, otherwise known as “Buddy,” played at left guard. He is one of the best defensive guards the school has turned out and he is no slouch when it comes to making baskets. “Duddy” should be a star next year, as he will have more experience. Anthony D’Aniello is another forward that helped make the team successful. Tony, or “Jelly Bean, " as he is known to his friends, is a little fellow, but he knows his basket¬ ball and he is very popular with the fans. Tony will be among those who will graduate in June and his cheerful face will be missed in next year’s lineup. Mr. Hilbert’s strategy, his character, and fine coaching was a very important cog in Franklin’s basketball machine. All the boys like him and are willing to w T ork hard under his tutoring. Every year he turns out a more successful team than the year before, and we see an unbeaten team in the offing. For the first time in many years an athletic team was tendered a banquet, when this year’s basketball team received the distinction. All the team, the faculty, and the school committee were present. A delicious dinner, followed by speeches and dancing, completed the evening’s entertainment. [ 78 ] I 79 ] 3. Oij. § . (Eljampimtalftp Slaekrtball ©ram (Hrarh QJpam This year’s track team is the strongest team the Blue and White has had in at least four years. During the past three years it has defeated the strong Framingham team twice out of three times. Other fast teams defeated by the Blue and White were Northbridge, Walpole, and Natick. The first meet of this year with the very strong Woonsocket High team ended in a defeat, but a glorious defeat indeed! As Woonsocket is way out of our class, they intended to give us a terrible swamping. To their surprise Franklin kept tie with them in points until the last race, in which Franklin lost second place, which pushed the score to 38-34 in favor of Woonsocket. As the Villa Nova team is the strongest we shall compete against, the Blue and White boys intend to take every other meet quite easily. Some of the outstanding men on the team are: Captain Clapp, Vignone, Woolford, Bogigian, and Desper. As a final word at the parting of the ways, the Senior track boys wish to thank Coach Abell for his fine training and co-operation. [ 80 ] (Sirlja’ IFii ' li) liurkcy We began this season with only one of last year’s players. In spite of this fact our first game was with Walpole, our undefeated rival. Much to our surprise and delight we were victorious. Next we played Shrewsbury, and although we fought hard, we were defeated on our own field. Then we played the return game with Shrewsbury but we must have met our “Waterloo” as we were again defeated. Our third game, with East Bridgewater, one time “state” champions, ended rather unsatisfactorily in a tie score. However, in the return game with East Bridgewater we got the biggest score of the season. Due to weather conditions and other things, we were unable to play Walpole at Franklin, but we felt sure we would have been vic torious. Center—Captain, E. Legare Manager, E. Yadisernia L. Inner, R.

They played ten games, winning four and losing six. The team lacked “the pep,” “the speed,” “the experience,” and “the IT " of last year’s team. Although this was not the usual successful season for the girls, the fact that there are only four members graduating, gives a brighter outlook for next year. The girls who received their F’s were : Abbott, Yadisernia, Tufts, Shulze, O’Donnell, Cray, Crowell, Costello, and Dailey.
