franklin, Massachusetts foreword Kappy hours are spent wandering in Memory’s Storehouse. T wo dedication all those faculty members■, i y y p r — helped the franklin Kigh School to attain its merited high position among the smaller schools of the State, we, the class of 1930, dedicate this book. Three alljf Nrm 0miia (Eljaiirr Htgfy rhnol Uniltotuj Albert ul. fatty Principal five Artljur W. Hair Superintendent of Schools Six o Members of School Committee MR. LEE C. ABBOTT Chairman MR. JOHN M. RILEY DR. CARL E. RICHARDSON Seven fo g Key Hilda Applin, A.B. French Mrs. Applin knows we like French, but does she know how much we like her own attractive self? Ann C. Callahan. B.S.S. T ypewriting—Shorthand Miss Callahan has certainly trained a speedy lot, all ready for the race-track of life. We hope that she won’t disappoint us by racing away, herself. Delphine Carpenter, A.B. As a LADY CARPENTER she knows her trade, and has ably constructed a fine Musical Colony. Fight Priscilla Davis, A.B. Miss Davis played ' Civics’ on a high scale with the accompaniment of King Session. (There was generally a " Gee” clef.) James J. Doherty, A.B. Mathematics Mr. Doherty and his brother Mathematics caused more than one wrinkle on studious faces, but with the appearance of his half-brothers — Irony and Wit — those wrinkles blended into smiles. Charles F. Frazer Sub-Master — Sciences “Doc” means a certain thing in FI. S. Dean Of Ch emistry Dean Of Coaches Dear Old Charles Nine Arthur G. Hilbert Manual Training Mr. Hilbert can wield more than a hammer and nail. — not only wield, but also weld the High School boys into a first-rate basketball team. Doris Kubeck Physical Director Left - right — left - right — into our hearts came Miss Kubeck with her varied and interesting Physical programs. Walter S. MacPhee, A.B. Physical Director " He came, he saw, he conquered” — and also helped our boys to conquer all obstacles in the playing field, giving them great training for the outside field of life. Ten Gertrude E. Mitiguy, B.S. Domestic Science Ginger-bread and whipped cfeam! We all love it, and we all love our cooking teacher — Miss Mitiguy, who planned so many other “tasty " dishes. Hilja E. Peterson. B.S. Ed. It was a long time before Miss Peterson came to us, but it wasn ' t long before we liked the teacher and her teaching. Agnes Sheehan, B.S.S. Book-Keeping Some may think Miss Sheehan keeps the Books, but those Books keep her because they like her, as all her students do. Eleven Ellen E. Shepard, B.S. History Ellen Shepard ably shepherds many wandering sheep through the pleasant fields of History. Margaret E. Shepard, A.B. English The school would surely be incomplete without our musical Miss Shepard. Let ' s all follow her example and play the affairs of life as willingly and ably as she plays the piano. Margaret F. Vaughan, A.B. We all liked the way she talked, the way she taught, and the charming manner in which she in¬ troduced Gram-ma English. T welve Alfred C. Webber, B.S. Science As a biology instructor, musician, talker, and good fellow, Mr. Webber ranks one-hundred per¬ cent. Alice Wiggin, a.b. English “Teachers may come Teachers may go — but let Miss Wiggin go on forever " — for how could F. H. S. ever do without her splendid per¬ sonality ! Irene K. Wight Mrs. Wight draws quite a group to Drawing Class, for she is a delightful artist and instructor. ♦ Thirteen Lila E. Winchester, A.B. Latin People say Latin is a " dead language,” but if they had the opportunity of taking it with Miss Winchester, they would find it so interesting, they too. wouldn ' t mind being " dead.” Jtt JOUmaruun The Class of 193 0 wish to extend warm sympathy to the friends and relatives of Halford Crockett, who, last year, was killed in an elevator accident. As President of the Class of ’29, " Hal” did his best and worked hard to help his class along. He had intended to go to Fitchburg Normal School, but his premature death shattered this plan. God bless you. " Hal,” and may you rest in peace. Fourteen ( “Buck " 128 Pleasant Street, Franklin, Mass. " Hail to the chief who in triumph advances. " All of us know " Buck,” and why shouldn ' t we when he was the unanimous choice of the class for president? He held this position for both the Junior and Senior years and we know of no one who could have done the job half so well. “Buck” took a leading part in " Doc ' s” Christmas play — and did a wonderful job with it. " Buck” has always had his heart set on being a doctor and we’re all sure that he will make good in this line or whatever else he attempts.

John Rogers Goodwin Fales Street, Franklin, Mass. " A good man possesses a kingdom.” John was well-liked by all who knew him. He played an im portant part in the life of the school and no better person could have been selected for vice-president of the Senior Class. John took part in most of the social activities in and about school and always made events more enjoyable. He was a willing worker and always did his job well. John will certainly stick to his work, whatever he starts, until it is finished and done to perfection.

Blanche Geraldine Moore “Bunch” 24 Fales Street, Franklin, Mass. “Wit and wisdom go hand in hand.” Everybody stand! Allow me to introduce Blanche. Oh, I should have known she needed no introduction. " Bunch” is certainly a very popular member of our class and the credit she deserves would fill a book. As class treasurer she served most faithfully. She has taken part in all of our school activities and we have always felt assured of her wishes for the best of success in all our undertakings. Blanche has never had the blues and we doubt if she knows what they are. Her smiles have never failed to gain an answering smile, no matter what the gender of the other face. So, in what ever field of work you try, " Bunch.” we extend to you our sincercst wishes for success, and hope that your spirit is always as ready as now.

Muriel Elizabeth Reilly “Sis” " Mur” 188 East Central Street, Franklin, Mass. “Good nature and good sense were her companions.” Muriel has always been an ardent worker for the class of ’30 and has always made a good job of it. Many a stormy morning ”Sis” has hiked up from the plains to grace the corridors with her presence. Although Muriel is quiet, if she is ever absent — which is seldom — everyone misses her and is looking for her return, anxiously. Busi¬ ness seems to be the vocation that has called Muriel. We know she will make as charming an executive secretary as she has our class secre¬ tary. So here’s the best to you, Muriel.

Sixteen Howard Abbott “Bunny " 136 School Street, Franklin, Mass. “A student as well as an athlete.” Howard, although a quiet fellow, was never behind in anything. He was liked by all because of his pleasing good-nature. He was a brilliant student, as is shown by the fact that he received the second highest honor in the class. Howard was also an excellent basketball player and did some fine work in this line. He was a decided hit in the band play, “A Mad Breakfast,” when he took the part of one of the women. Howard has come through Franklin High with flying colors and we are all certain he will keep on in the same manner.

Margaret Temple Abbott “Gete " “Marge " Alpine Street, Franklin, Mass. “The Best Ever. " " Gete” is the exception to the rule. " Beauty and Brains do not usually go together.” She certainly has both. " Gete " is always smil¬ ing. Never a frown crosses her face. She is also a loyal friend, a good student, an excellent dancer, and a very good chauffeuress. She also was the " Sheba” of the Class of ' 30, and a right good choice it was, too. " Gete” was also interested in athletics. She went out for track and intcrclass basketball. She could act, too, as evidenced by the parts she had in different plays given at the school. She is undecided as to what she will do next year. She thinks she will train either for a secretary or a nurse. Whatever field she enters, we wish her the best of luck.

Lois Edith Alexander “Siol " 153 Alpine Street, Franklin. Mass. “None but herself can be her parallel. " Lois is another one of our well-dressed flappers of the class of ' 30, and it cannot be denied that she was also a real good sport in more ways than one. A dance proved to be " Siol ' s” joy and many’s the night she has spent in happiness and bliss on the F. H. S. dance floor. No wonder she was socially prominent! Tall, slender, and graceful was " Siol” and -— (come on, girls, admit it) — was envied by more than one little miss of her list of acquaintances. Lois has always done well in her studies. Anyone that knows her will agree that " none but herself can be her parallel.” Her success in life is sure. Dean and Wheaton follow F. H. S. for her, so good luck, “Siol.” Horace Mann Lit Club 1-2-3; Interclass Basketball 1-2-4; Track 1-2-3; Junior Prom Committee 3; Dramatics 1-2-3-4; Glee Club 4. Alvah Aldrich West Central Street, Franklin, Mass. “A tireless worker and true to his trust. " Alvah was a quiet fellow and one of the most likable chaps in school. One could always find Alvah in the afternoon at school at his private desk in the hall. If anything ever needed to be done he was always on hand and never failed to do it properly. His efficient work behind the scenes at the school plays and dances was greatly appre¬ ciated by all. Dramatics 2; Track 2; Glee Club 1-2-3-4. Seventeen Eleanor Allen ■•Red " Medway, Mass. " A Smile for Everyone. " " Red ' ' came to us from Medway. She was a welcome member of our class, taking part in many activities. She was always going around smiling, happy all the time. Her studies didn ' t interest her a great deal, but she managed to wade through them. " Red " certainly made a hit with the opposite sex while in school. They were interested in her and she was interested in them. That made it very nice. One particular fellow, though, got most of " Red s " attention. Give a guess as to his identity. Best of luck to you in Burdett’s, " Red. " We all hope you ' ll make a great success as a stenog. Dramatics 1; Music 1-2-3; Track 1; Junior Prom Committee 3; Freshman Acquaintance Party 1; Hallowe’en Committee 2; Inter¬ class Basketball 1-2. Mary Avadanian Mechanic Street, Bellingham, Mass. “Laugh with the world, but never at the world.” Here is our little farmerette from Bellingham. Mary could al¬ ways find time to laugh at anything. In any class, whenever she said anything out of the ordinary she would be the first to laugh. She would then put her head on her desk and keep it there for about ten minutes. We often wondered why Mary hid her face, but probably it was just a habit. Mary could laugh but she could also tickle the keys in typewriting. She usually had her work done before the others in our class. After graduation she intends to go to New Jersey to work. We are sorry she is leaving our vicinity for you might call her a neighbor, living as she does in Bellingham. We extend our best wishes for her success, wherever she may go. Glee Club 4; Track Meet 1. Eleanor Baker Ruggles Street, Franklin, Mass. " Thought seems to come and go In thy large eyes, imperial Eleanor.” Eleanor always found a happy side of life. Maybe it came from athletics, for she was one of the athletic girls in our class. She took some part in almost all of the girls’ sports, and went out for Track all four years. Although Eleanor also excelled in cooking and sewing, she plans to make a business career, and be somebody’s secretary. Best wishes from us all, Eleanor! We know you will make good. Track 1-2-3-4; Interclass Basketball; Glee Club; Junior Prom Committee; Marshal. Gladys Baker “ Glady” East Central Street, Franklin, Mass. “Study now, play after.” In our English classes Gladys was noted for her book reviews. Her descriptions or reports of books she had read were unusually good. She developed that talent in her freshman year and kept it up through¬ out the remaining years. She was always a quiet unassuming girl and never caused the teachers a troublesome moment. Her ambition is to become a stenographer and we are sure she will make a very good one and be a credit to her school, and to her employer. She has already shown her ability in her stenography class by being one of the best pupils. Success is sure to come to a student of Gladys’ ability and ambitions. Glee Club 1-2; Track Meet 1-2; Hallowe ' en 4; Literary Society 1 - 2 . Eighteen Russell Barnes “ Barnsey” Marvin Avenue, Franklin, Mass. " The good and well behaved get the worst bargain.” We often wondered if there was any such person as a Russell Barnes in our senior class, for he certainly was a bashful, quiet boy while he was in school. During his four years in high school he was one of the best behaved boys in the school. The teachers must have wished there were more like him. Although he was quiet and did not care to talk before the class, he still could do well in his subjects. Russell intends to go to Burdette next year. We all wish him the greatest of success and happiness during the time he attends Burdette and in the work he chooses. Hallowe’en Party 1. Marjorie Belcher “Marge” Bellingham, Mass. “Friend of all — Foe of none.” “Marge " is another Bellingham girl. She is one of the best seamstresses in the Senior class. In her Sophomore year she received honorable mention in the National Buttrick Contest in New York. In her Senior year she also won third prize in a county dress-making contest. She won several canning prizes and won the Home Beautiful contest in this state, too. “Marge’’ didn’t take very active part in high school activities. Not very many of us knew her well, but those of us who were privileged in knowing her, certainly liked her. We never saw “Marge " angry. She was always happy and good-natured. This was a great help to her in making friends. Music 1-2-3; Trick 1-2; Interclass Basketball 3-4. Herbert Alden Besse “Herbie” 70 East Central Street, Franklin, Mass. “I have the courage of mg opinions.” “Herbie” is a man of the world and a connoisseur of fine cars, motor boats, and (?). One of his greatest ambitions is someday to do one hundred down a six mile cement straight-away in his own Due- senberg. We all remember the time he had appendicitis and his tale of the delights of taking morphine. Herbie’s looks and figure gave him advantages in gaining the attention of the opposite sex at home and abroad. He twirled a mean roulette wheel in “Father and the Boys " and proved himself worthy of the distinction of being the first in our class to have a major part in one of “Doc ' s " plays. We all know that “Herbie " will succeed in whatever he attempts. Dramatics 3; Track 1-2; Monitor 3-4; Junior Prom Commit¬ tee 3; Hallowe ' en Committee 3. Sophie Barbara Bis “Silence is golden.” Wrentham Street, South Bellingham, Mass. Hail, a maiden from South Bellingham! It is Sophie Bis, a quiet, shy girl of Franklin High School. She was very popular with her classmates and loved by all. Sophie never slipped in her studies, and she certainly kept up with her Typewriting Speed Tests. Perhaps Sophie intends to enter a Business College, or maybe she’ll join the Business World. In any case, we wish her heartiest luck for a pros¬ perous and successful career. Glee Club 2; Literary Club 1-2; Hallowe’en Committee 2-4. Nineteen Louise Mary Brunelli ‘ ' Lou " Summer Street, Frankliil, Mass. “Sloio but sure. " Here is Louise! She was one of the best natured of our class¬ mates. Louise was a " Jolly Kid " and she had a great big smile on her face all the time. Whenever Ann came in late. Lou was sure to follow her. In her Sophomore year, Lou won second prize in the District Butterick Contest in Dressmaking. Wasn’t that fine? Congratulations. Lou. Just what she intends to do is unknown at present. Perhaps it ' s dressmaking, or maybe stenography. Here ' s wishing hef the best of luck. Track Meet 1; Literary Club 1-2; Glee Club 1-4. Velma Byrnes " Vel " " Vellie " W. Central Street, Franklin. Mass. " Dimples in her cheeks, dimples in her chin, You ' re always sure of lots of fun when Vel comes rushing in.” " Vel " is always doing something which will make you laugh. Hers is the eye with the mischievous twinkle, the laugh that is often a chuckle. “Vel ' s” sense of humor and good nature are always in evidence. Athletics and dramatics also have a strong pull for her. As long as she can get out for a game of hockey, basketball, volley ball. " Vel " doesn ' t mind how long the assignments are. But she also has her serious moments and at times puts aside her jolly spirit and assumes a grave attitude. " Vel " is a pleasant combination of serious¬ ness and fun. Track 1-2-3-4; Hockey 2-3; Dramatics 4; Junior Prom Com¬ mittee 3; Stunt Night 1-2-3-4; Interclass Sports 1-2-3-4. John Croston Carr “ Baldy” Chestnut Street, Franklin. Mass. " He draweth out the thread of his verbosity finer than the staple of his argument John was the star catcher on the baseball team and an ardent fan. He also played basketball and we all remember the clever work he did in the game with Woonsocket. John played football, too, and did a great deal of good work in that sport. John always put across what¬ ever he attempted and the magazine contest is an example of his fine work.

Marjorie Patricia Casey ‘‘Marj’’ " Pat " School Street. Franklin. Mass. ‘‘Mischief dances in her eyes and smiles upon her lips. " " Pat " always had a ready smile and a breezy answer for every¬ one. You may well ask how so much " Pep " could come in such a small package. " Pat " is one cf the merriest members of the class, but very serious when it is a serious person to be dealt with. She is the staunchest of friends and you may count on her loyalty every time. The two things that make " Pat " particularly dear to us are her coy ways and alluring manner. Middlebury seems to be her goal and we are sure she will arrive, and acquire as many friends there as she leaves behind. Blue and White 4; Junior Prom Committee 3. T wenty Everett Cataldo “Leelac” East Central Street, Franklin, Mass. “Power to start and power to finish.’’ “Leelac,” one of the best athletes Franklin High has ever seen, pulled us through many a tight place in football, baseball, and bas¬ ketball, and we all can remember thrillers that he provided in many of the basketball games during the four years he played. “Leelac” often had the crowd roaring during one of the tense moments when he dribbled down the floor, dodging everyone, and scored. It certainly is no little honor to have been captain of the basketball teams which have secured first place for two consecutive years in the South Shore Tournaments, and “Leelac’s " playing had a great deal to do with the wins. “Leelac’ ' certainly made a name for himself at Franklin High and all who know him are certain that he will continue in the same way in future life. Basketball 1-2-3-4; Captain 3-4; Baseball 1-2; Football 1-2- 3-4; Dramatics 3-4; Track 1. John Alden Costello 81 Union Street, Franklin, Mass. “Full of wit and humor.” John was one of the best-liked fellows in school and had a line that would put him across anywhere at any time. He certainly could play the piano and generally could be found in the auditorium tickling the keys of the Baby Grand. He played with the Symphonians and after returning from Chatham last summer told us all about the beau¬ ties of the seashore. John was a member of the track team and ran at the Brockton Fair in his freshman year. He also played with the baseball squad for two years. We all hope that John will make music his life work, for we know that his playing will make as great a hit with others as it has with us. Baseball 2-4; Track 1-2; Vice-President 3; Orchestra Commit¬ tee, Junior Prom; Band 1-2-3-4; Class Marshal 3; Junior Dance Committee Hallowe’en Party 2. Mary Lucy Costello “Costie” Chestnut Street, Franklin, Mass. “Rough and ready. " Well, well, if it isn’t Mary, the basketball star! Was she popu¬ lar among her classmates! Don’t ask. Mary was the “Good-natured Senior " who always took a joke. S he certainly showed her school spirit in athletics. Mary also took part in various assemblies and she always made a “great hit " with her classmates. Basketball Team 2-3-4: Captain of Basketball Team 4; Captain of Interclass Team 2-3-4: Track Meet Captain 2-3-4; Literary Club 1-2; Glee Club 1-2-4; Hallowe’en Committee 4. Lewis Crandall “Lewie " Oak Street. Franklin, Mass. “Nice things come in small packages.” “Lewie’’ may be small, but he sure has his place in Franklin High. He is always bubbling over with laughter and keeps everyone else the same. His jokes and wise cracks have gotten him in many tight places but he usually manages to escape somehow. He took active part in athletics. He played on the basketball team for four years. Didn ' t we all cheer when “little Lewie " made a basket, which he did frequently? He also could run and jump, taking part in the track meet his Sophomore, Junior, and Senior years. Basketball 1-2-3-4; Glee Club 1-2; Track 2-3-4; Inter-class Basketball 1-2-3-4. T wenty-One mm Mary Crothers Martin Avenue, Franklin, Mass. “Lean on your own crutches. " Mary could be classed with " Mandy " Ryan for her funny charac¬ teristics. They were often seen together. She was popular among her classmates because of that funny " streak” that she had in her. Her chief pastime while in school was to ride in a packed car, with her other friends, during the lunch hour. There were no lazy bones on Mary; she was always in a hurry to do something. She desires to go further to school and the one she has chosen is Higgins. Here she will take a secretarial course and will some day be a noted character, if she continues to be " on the go " as she always was while in High School. Let us hope that she reaches the goal, " success.” Literary Club 1-2. Track Meet 1-2-3. Hallowe’en Party 1; Glee Club 1. Mary Elizabeth Cruise " Cruisie ” Union Street, Franklin, Mass. " A dainty tripping miss-- with spirit rather high. " Have you heard the latest song? If you haven’t, ask " Cruisie.” Mary was always tripping around, singing the newest hit. And could she dance? Did you ever notice that Mary was always one of the " lucky " girls at social hours? Although full of fun. Mary was a good student as well as an athlete. " Cruisie " wants to become a nurse, and we surely can picture her in a uniform. Won’t she make a per¬ fect nurse! Our best wishes for your success, Mary! Inter-class basketball 1-2; Track 1-2; Junior Prom Committee 3 ; Chorus 1 -2-3-4. Elizabeth Daily “Liz " “Lizzie " Peck Street, Franklin, Mass. " Nothing great ever was achieved without enthusiasm. " " Lizzie " is a dreamy sort of a girl, but plenty of fun can be found in her for all of her dreaminess. Who made an almost invincible marshal? Why, " Lizzie, " of course! Who was the star center of the girls’ basketball team? " Liz.” Who could always be seen chewing gum in school? " Liz,” (even if she was unconscious of it.) " Liz” was a big girl with a big heart, and she gladly shared this big heart with everyone. " Liz " plans to enter Higgins ' Business School next fall to continue her business career. Best of luck, " Liz.” Music 1-2-3-4; Basketball 2-3-4; Jr. Prom 3; Track 1-2-3; Lit Club 1-2-3. Mary DeBaggis " Deb " Uncas Avenue, Franklin, Mass. " Dance and keep that boyish figure. " " Deb,” the lover of a dance hall! Her greatest delight was a shiny floor and a good partner. The days when she seemed happiest were the ones when there was a social hour or when there was a chance to go to a dance in the evening. In her classes she was as glamorous as in dancing. When she was summarizing anything in English, the descriptive adjectives she used would make one sit up and take notice. Mary intends to go in training as a nurse and we are sure she will make a good one. Track Meet 1-2; Glee Club 3-4; Hallowe’en Party 2; Literary Club 1-2. T wenty-Two Everett Denning " Midget” Peck Street, Franklin. Mass. " Small of Stature, Quick of Wit.” That ' s " Midget. " Any new wise cracks that you want to know? Ask " Midget " ; he’ll tell you. A real jolly good fellow, never too tired or too lazy to give a few points in the up-to-date slang. " Midget " spends his afternoons laboring in one of the First National Stores, and he certainly is an expert along that line. Who knows? He may be a manager some day. He also starred in managing football and basketball teams, so all in all he is extremely capable as far as managing is con¬ cerned. Best of luck to you, " Midget,” in anything you may do!

" Live while you live and Die and be done with it.” This is Orlando, better known to all as " Luns. " His radiating personality will certainly be missed next year. " Luns " has been in the Band several years and has certainly helped to make it the success we know it is. Most of us see " Luns " on the street afternoons and he always has a ready " Hi” or something to that effect for all. Some have wondered what the attraction is in Medway, but we’ll not go into that. " Luns " has been in several High School activities, always show¬ ing a good deal of enthusiasm. " Luns " doesn’t know what he is going to do next year, but here’s wishing him the best luck in the world. Band 1-2-3-4; Operetta 4; Literary Club 1-2-3. Francis Richardson Desper " Dusty” Uncas Avenue. Franklin, Mass. " It is the quiet worker who succeeds.” Francis is one of the two boys who stuck to shorthand and type¬ writing, and his ability in commercial work was very apparent. " Dusty " was one of the industrious boys who worked after school, and we understand that he is a very efficient business worker. Francis was also a dependable man on the football and track teams. Many times his playing and running have helped F. H. S. to victory. Our best wishes for success go with you, Francis. Football 3-4; Track 1-2. Nichola Carmin Dl Paola " Nick " Alpine Place, Franklin, Mass. " Large was his bounty and his soul sincere.” " Nick " came into our class at the beginning of our Senior year. Before coming here, he attended school in Florence, Italy. After he had been here only a short time he wrote for the " Blue and White " a very interesting article on his former school life. As a marshal in front of the Senior rooms, " Nick " was the man to subdue the on- rushing mass. We don’t know just what " Nick” intends to do. but whatever he does, the class wish him all the success in the world. T wenty-Three John Dowling “Johnny” Lincoln Street, Franklin, Mass. “Innocence is thine.” There are some people who, while not created to create any great stir in public life, make their influence felt, nevertheless. Johnny is one of our enthusiastic classmates. He went out for football and showed his ability in holding the line. Not only has he proven his ability along athletic and scholastic lines, but he has established himself as a very capable associate business manager for the Year Book. We know that anything that John undertakes will be just what he intends to make it. Band 1-2-3-4; Music 1-2; Chorus 2; Associate Business Man¬ ager “Oskey” 4; Football 2; Baseball Manager 1 ; Track 1-2; Editorial Committee " Oskey” 4. John Clifford Feeley “Chff” East Central Street, Franklin, Mass. " 7 would I were a butterfly.” John Clifford has been cruising among us for the last four years at F. H. S. He’s always been quiet, as the class goes, but he’s un¬ mistakably " there.” One might think from his size and meekness of aspect that in about two or three years, he should be able to play marbles for “keeps.” Don ' t let appearances fool you. He may be small, but he ' s got a load of athletic ability condensed in his frame. He went out for football for four years, and in his fourth year he came into his own; he engineered the team through a successful season, and continued to prove that the age of miracles is not yet extinct. We know he’ll make good at anything he tries, but wouldn’t he look brutal in a “Chief of Police” outfit.

Marshall Francis Ficco “Mush” “Musko” 3 5 Alpine Place, Franklin, Mass. “A friend to all, and a grand good sport.” Toot! Toot! Here comes “Musko,” one of the numerous big guns of our class. As is signified by his name, “Musko” was an all¬ round athlete and sure did his best wherever he was, whether on the gridiron, diamond, or basketball court. He always entered into the spirit of whatever was happening or whatever required his services. Strange to say, “Mush” seems to have acquired a great deal of common sense, for it is very seldom we see him in the presence of a member of the “weaker sex,” altho’ for a time he wore “green,” a very signi¬ ficant emblem of the freshman class. Never mind, “Mush” — keep up the good work and success will be assured. Football 2-3-4; Baseball 3; Interclass Basketball 4; Track 1-2- 3-4; Glee Club 2-3. Ethel Fisher “ Fishhooks ” ” Eth” East Central Street, Franklin, Mass. “It takes life to love life.” Nobody is blue when Ethel’s around, for she brings sunshine in spite of herself. Always jolly — the blues are just not in her vo¬ cabulary. A proven athlete, too, as was shown by her record in inter- dass sports and on the varsity basketball and hockey teams. In a way peculiar to herself, she has delighted us with her clever singing and dancing skits. Her athletic ability is not her only virtue, for she has shown us her talent along dramatic lines.

Shepard, our English teacher, waited two minutes for him to speak. In his senior year, however, he developed into a fast boy with his Ford Sedan. He certainly did step on the gas while riding on the roads near the school. " Stan " was very prominent in our High School Band. He went out for band for three years. We do not know whether he has yet chosen his life work, but we know that in his quiet manner he will succeed. Track Meet 3; Band 2-3-4; Orchestra 1.

Alice Hale " Alice " Main Street, Franklin, Mass. “Silence is Golden.” Alice was one of our brightest students. She was the valedic¬ torian of our class. She was one of our quiet high school pals. She was not particularly athletic, but she was an energetic student. She ' was popular with those who really knew her and highly respected by those who were less familiar with her true self. Alice was quite a beauty, too, with her smooth skin and heavy golden curls. Here’s to your success for the coming years, wherever they may lead. Music 3-4; Junior Prom Committee 3; Horace Mann Lit.

In his quiet way he has taken part in many school activities, including base¬ ball, band, and orchestra. In the latter two activities he deviates some¬ what from his usual quiet course in life. You see, he plays a saxo¬ phone. " Fran " has always been a good worker. He sticks faithfully by his studies and in his spare time labors as usher in the local play¬ house. During his first two years at High School he was a member of a certain obscure and much defeated basketball team labelled " Com¬ ets.

Marion is the type of girl that one describes as a “perfect peach.” She has been prominent in student activities where her jolly good will, sound advice, and ready-to-help spirit have done much to put things over. Need we say any more about Marion? At present she is undecided whether to grace Mount Holyoke or Wheaton with her presence.

This was shown when it was announced that she received the third honor for graduation. Betty also starred in dramatics, taking the lead in several plays. In school Betty seems to be a demure girl, but it is said she “steps out plenty.” Betty is about the only one who has that wonderful gift of combining knowledge with good times. With this advantage over the rest of us, we’re sure she’ll be successful.

The Scout Oath . Bob has always been a quiet, unobtrusive student, quite capable of humor, or shall I say satire, at times. I don ' t think he’s ever come under the jurisdiction of school law in all his four years in high school. Bob has been a frequent contributor to the Blue and White, and some of his articles show that he is capable of thought. Now this is the height of mental attainment for high school students. Perhaps if he makes a habit of thinking and sticks at it, he’ll be a big “Exec” in the A. £3 P. We know that if patience and industry are factors in advancement, Mr. Robert Jacques, Esq., will advance swiftly and far. The best of luck to you. Bob. — Strive onward.

Doris Christina Johnson “ Dorie” “Dot” Prospect Street, Franklin, Mass. “A pretty golden head is hers, And a heart as big as all Outdoors.” Friendly and lovable, “Dot” has proven herself to be of the type “once a friend, always a friend.” Ask her sometime to do something for you. You know perfectly well that your answer will be “Sure, old top. I’ll try.” That was “Dorie” all over. She tried hard al¬ ways to win friendliness and fame — the latter especially for her class, for she was one of the two most brilliant commercial students chosen to represent her class in the big contest at Worcester. She took many things seriously, but it was the sunny side of her nature that drew the hearts of many toward her.

One of the nicest things about " Fran” is the way she always understands and sympathizes when we tell her our woes. Then, too, she is ever ready to lend a helping hand, which makes us like her better. If you want to laugh just listen to “Fran ' s” “Slants on the Dance.” “Fran” is a devotee of goed times, and a good time is a better time if “Fran” is along. But she can be serious, and when the occasion arises there are few who are more capable or have more dignity. Her friends are many, and anyone will tell you she’s a " good scout.” Track 1-2: Stunt Night 1-2: Glee Club 2-3-4; Hallowe’en Party 1-2-3-4; Junior Dance Committee 3; Dramatics 4; Junior Prom Committee 3; Freshman Acquaintance Party 4; Editorial Com¬ mittee Year Book 4: Blue and White Staff 4.

' Although she did not join our class until the Sophomore year, we feel as though we had always known her. How often she was the envy of some of her shorter classmates! Her first year with us she showed her ability in athletics by taking part in the Track Meet. Sally was also a good dancer, singer, and speaker. Both her Junior and Senior years she went out for prize speaking. Sally plans to enter the Dea¬ coness Hospital next fall, not as a patient, we are glad to say, but to study to be a nurse. We know she will make a perfect nurse. Track 2: Prize Speaking 3-4; Glee Club 2-3-4.

During our four years at High, Doris has been a most loyal supporter of all social functions and sport activities. No committee was ever complete without Doris being on it to render her valuable assistance. Nursing is to be Doris’ vocation, and we know she’ll be a success, because of her sympathetic and capable disposition.

Anna Viola Lan Ducci “Red” “Ann” Summer Street, Franklin, Mass. “Never on time, but always there.” Introducing Anna Lan Ducci, the happy-go-lucky girl of Frank¬ lin High. “Ann” was never in school at 8:25. She usually came stroll¬ ing in after the morning exercises. If Anna was ever wanted after 2:17 you would surely find her in Session Hall, either for being tardy or for “fooling,” but in spite of her sessions. Anna was one of the most popular girls in the Senior Class. She was a marshal practically all of her Junior year, and did she make the students behave in line? We don’t know what “Ann” is planning to do, but we surely wish her happiness and success. Glee Club 1-4; Marshal 2-3-4; Junior Prom Committee 3; Literary Club 1.

Every noon hour this spring, — Frank was seen parading through West Central Street with his little Ford and it was never empty. He always " picked up " his friends for a little spin. Judging from his recitations in class, it seems that he in¬ tends to be a chemist or physicist. At unexpected moments, Frank would use some long expressions, generally used by chemists. Perhaps, after all, he doesn’t intend to be a chemist, but merely a business man. Here’s wishing him the best of luck in whatever he endeavors to do. Dramatics 4 ; Interclass Track 1-2-3-4. Helen Louise Lyons “Tiger " School Street, Franklin, Mass. “Always ready, always there. Always willing to do her share. " Helen was one of the active girls in our class. She showed her ability in studies, athletics, and music. " Tiger” took a great interest in our class, and could be found at every class meeting. One never saw her idling in the corridors; she was always doing something. Helen was a very good athlete. Who can forget the despair of the Senior girls when Helen sprained her ankle just before the track meet? " Tiger " plans to go in training soon, and we envy the patients that have her for a nurse!

Motto: I resolve to study conscientiously, attend school whenever possible, and be a gentleman and scholar always and forevermore. " Link " joined our class in the fall of ’28 after a lapse between his sophomore and junior years. At first we thought him a little ancient, but we soon became great friends; you see, he always bought his own cigarettes. He was one of the strong points of the line in football last year, but due to a rule, he was barred from athletics this year. And did we miss him, —- say, at Plymouth, for instance? He was always first with the latest, from first to last or vice versa. It has always been a mystery to his classmates why, after having been absent (approximately five times a week), he borrows a pen and a piece of paper as soon as he gets to school. Has anyone ever seen him worry? No, and it’s doubtful if anyone will. He ambles along (8 ft. strides, I know), at peace with the world, and lets nature take its course. We’ll wish him lots of luck, even if he has got an oversupply at present. Good luck, and good hunting, " Linkun. " old sock.

" Although " Bernie” was always rather quiet in school, we know that underneath her serene countenance there was really a lot of pep. For, do you remember when a certain Senior boy frequented the vicinity of Charlotte Street and was seen as an escort in many a place? " Bernie " wasn ' t so prominent in school activities, but she sure can dance. Of course, we all have seen her do ng the " Highland Fling " and the " Sword Dance. " Who hasn ' t? We don ' t quite know what Bernadine is planning to do next year, but we imagine it will be along the busi¬ ness line. Best o ' luck, " Bernie, " in whatever you may undertake. Twenty-Eight Arlene MacIvor “Mac” Emmons Street, Franklin, Mass. “Laugh and the world laughs with you; Weep and you weep alone.” That’s “Mac ' s " motto and she sticks by it through thick and thin. “Happy I am, from care I ' m free, " is the breezy way “Mac " goes along. A girl with a heart ot gold — by the way — the last we knew about that heart it had been stolen — What a break that boy’s getting. Though “Mac ' ' be old and gray as the years go by, a laugh like her ' s will never die.

Ruth Irma Mann “Ruth " City Mills, Mass. “Her face is fair, her heart is true.” We couldn ' t help liking Ruth at first acquaintance, but somehow the more we knew her the better we liked her. She was always an ideal friend, kind, and thoughtful of others. In school activities we might say that Prize Speaking was her favorite, for she went out for this all four years and always made a fine showing at the Contests. Ruth will probably go to Normal School next year, and then be a teacher. Our best wishes will go with her. Prize Speaking 1-2-3-4; Glee Club 3-4.

Here are two boys that must be known well to be known apart. Preston has always been outstanding in athletics, especially last year, when he added basketball to his list of sports, making him a four letter man, Football, Basketball. Track, and Baseball.

He has made every team that he has gone out for since he came to F. H. S. This last year, he captained the football team through a successful season, and this being his 5th year in High School, he was barred from Athletics for the rest of the year. “Dud¬ die " has a distinct leaning toward telephones.

She is. for the most part, a rather quiet girl, but once in a while when her natural exuberance gets the best of her. she emits a little humming sound! Some say it ' s singing, but for the most part her friends keep mujn! Next year " Mac " in¬ tends to let her sunny self brighten the dorms of Fitchburg Normal School. Our loss, their gain.

This, no doubt, accounts for her rosy cheeks and sparkling eyes! She is a great favorite with both boys and girls, for they find her a very good- natured young lady. Nothing ever riles Virginia except aspersions on her beloved home (which arc not few in number). Just the same, anyone can truthfully say that he who has her friendship has a treasure not to be laughed at. Virginia plans to enter the nursing profession next year.

" Charlie " has found his place. One other factor in his scheme of life, a more important factor, we surmise, in his room, is Solitude. But at dances he is of a more so¬ ciable nature. Who ever heard of Charlie walking alone? No one: of course not. And no one will doubt his accomplishments after his future training at the Vesper George Art School.

Of course not. " Mattie " was one of the best boys in Franklin High’s T rack Meet, and a well-loved classmate. He seemed to spend a great many afternoons in Session Hall together with another friend who was always " fooling " with him. Ernest was also one of the smartest boys in Manual Training Work, and certainly very clever at it. He intends to enter Wentworth Insti¬ tute next fall, and we surely wish him all the luck in the world for his future career.

" Oh, fie upon this single life! " The girl in orange with the dark, straight bob and shining eyes! The girl with spirit! The girl who gets “crushes” on no one because it ' s too much bother! Evelyn is all of this and more. She was a timid miss who never pushed herself forward. Perhaps if she had. it would have made a difference — and perhaps it wouldn’t. Who knows? " It is hinted that “Ev” likes the rolling waters -— so much so that she has fallen for one of those attractive blue uniforms that the “Sailor Boys” wear, and if we ' re not mistaken there is a nice young man in the uniform. Perhaps she’ll be “Mrs. Admiral” some day. At least we all hope so, if she does have to be Mrs. anyone. “Ev” plans to go to work next year. We ' re all sure that whatever she sets out to do she ' ll succeed. Music 1-2-3; Track 1-2-3; Lit. Club 1-2-3.

He hopes to go to Harvard next year, where he is going to take up a medical course and we are sure he will be a great success. “Oskey” Finance Committee 4; Junior Prom Committee 3; Or¬ chestra 1-2-3; Track 2-3; Baseball 4; Hallowe ' en Committee 2.

Pat was loved by all her classmates, and she certainly was a “great kid.” Perhaps she’s intend¬ ing to become a stage dance r, or an opera singer. Who knows?

" Don ' t extend your?,elf; let nature do it.’’ Long, lean, and lanky, that’s Ralph. He always managed to grow just a little more than anycne else, and for that reason he is the tallest boy in the class. He’s pretty near the thinnest, too. He played basketball off and on for three years, and the fourth year he stuck it out and made good. Naturally he played center. “Boy” was generally in most of the plays that were put on, and he was perfectly at home on the stage. A strange thing about him is that he never seemed to take an interest in the women. Maybe he did. but we never saw him. Per¬ haps he’s been slipping something over on us. Never mind, “Boy,” we all wish you luck in whatever you do. Basketball 1-2-4: Baseball 1-2; Dramatics 1-2-3-4; Interdass Basketball 1-2-3; Interdass Football 4; Biology Club 3.

Her basketball playing certainly pulled our class along during inter-class games. Dora is planning to work next year, and we know that she will be a most efficient and well-liked employee. Our best wishes for your success, Dora! Chorus 1-2; Inter-class Basketball 1-2. Alfred Prendergast “Al” “ Prendy” Pleasant Street, Franklin. Mass. " Just let a smile be your umbrella to melt the snow away. " “Al " was a gangster: he traveled with a motley crew, but we won ' t hold it against him. He was very mysterious; — how anyone could do so much wandering during the third period and live to tell the tale is nothing short of miraculous. “Al” was always arguing, usu¬ ally indignant, frequently revengeful, sometimes violent. As to voca¬ tion, we expect him to be Editor-in-Chief of the Franklin Sentinel, but to attain this goal he must put his foot down hard, and that’s where the hitch comes in the program. Suppose that when he puts his foot down, he steps on his toe, why. he ' d be all tangled up in no time.

" Occasionally we find in our midst someone who moves with a quiet assurance of a person who knows what life is about. “Mike” is one of these. A modest, unassuming youth is Michael, 1 9 30’s man of mystery. Because of his quiet way many of us have not had the good fortune to discover his real nature. It may be true in this case that “still waters run deep.” However, he ' s a hard plugger, and not many honor rolls slip by without Michael’s name being near the top. We don ' t know what “Mike” intends to do next year, but with his ability to keep at a thing, he can’t fail. Thirty-T wo Melvin Rainville “Mel” Highland Avenue, Franklin. Mass. “I will be dignified even if dignity demandeth the breaking of a leg.” “Mel " joined our class in our sophomore year and since then has proved a friendly and untroublesome addition to the class. He came to Franklin from Pittsfield. At the end of the sophomore year, when he arrived here, he created quite a stir, for it seemed as though his con¬ ception of Geometry was not quite as vague as that of the rest of the class. The next year, however, he came down to our level, and has remained with us since. Why the intense expression, “Mel. ' ’ ' ’ — you shouldn’t concentrate so much, my lad. You ' ve got a lifetime ahead of you, so don’t start concentrating now. Continue as long as possible without thought, and then when you have to think you ' ll be right on deck with a fresh, new line of thought.

Robert Hazard Rickard “ Rick ” 136 Alpine Street, Franklin, Mass. “Make Hay While The Sun Shines.” Who didn ' t know “Rick?” He always had a smile for everyone. “Rick” certainly made a hit in the play, “Father and The Boys,” when he took the part of the butler. He also proved his ability in this line when he played the part of a garrulous old lady in the band play, “A Mad Breakfast.” “Rick.’ along with Costello, was often heard about High School, trying to pick out the strains of some latest number, and he was generally seen at all the social events at High School. We don’t know just what “Rick” expects to do after High School, but we are all sure he will be a great success in whatever task he may perform.

She was always full of practical jokes and could easily put her friends into “stitches” by her funny actions. Her chief delight was to borrow pins and needles in Physical Training Class, as well as in sewing class. In her senior year in history class she developed a fighting spirit during the practice senate session being held in that class. She certainly could defend her rights. Marion is another of our classmates who intends to go in training as a nurse. Her desire is to be a governess. We wish her great success and happiness in her chosen work.

And can you believe it—? Alice likes to receive “bills,” but of course they aren ' t paper ones with “please pay promptly” written upon them. Of a very democratic nature, “Shrimp” was al¬ ways willing to help anybody in difficulty and did so, many times.

" I want a new figure to dance with, my dears.” “Kay” with her abundance of blond hair and expressive eyes has been the center of attraction for four years at F. H. S. Although it was our misfortune that “Kay” was among the missing several times, we appreciated her more upon her return. From all reports, the fact that Catherine is a demure little girl has been upset. When we think of social functions we shall think of “Kay” doing her intricate steps on the dance floor. In her spare moments “Kay” has been acting as telegraphic operator at a local office. Next year she hopes to make a more detailed study of telegraphy. What a boon to the Western Union!

She surely could high-jump to perfection! Her playing on the inter-class basketball team was a great addition to our class. Besides being active in ath¬ letics. Helen was a good student. We don’t know just what Helen is going to do next year, but if she goes to work, her employer will certainly have a very efficient worker. Best wishes for the future, Helen!

She has always been a mystery to us, but one member of the class soon saw " Al’s " good points and since then has focused his attention upon her. We don’t blame him, either. Althea has taken part in many activities and has been a loyal supporter of school functions. We like her so well we almost begrudge Dean the year it had with her. " Al” plans to go to Radcliffe next year, and with her pleasing personality, we know she’ll make good. Literary Club 3; Christmas Play 2-3; Blue and White Staff 4; Finance Committee Year Book 4.

Lois was one of the smartest girls in the Senior class and she surely was clever at dress making. Recently she was awarded a prize of $25.00 in the Jordan Marsh Contest and Hon¬ orable Mention in National Butterick Contest in New York for dress¬ making. Wasn ' t that great! In class, Lois was very quiet, but she did recite at the right time. She was loved by all her classmates and teach¬ ers and many of the teachers wished there were more pupils like Lois. In her Freshman and Sophomore years she won the Alden Club Essay. Perhaps Lois intends to be seamstress or maybe a stenographer; but whatever she does, we wish her the best of happiness and luck.

Was Harriet popular? Need you ask? She was popular. And how! What most of us could not understand, however, was her reason for keeping her " Romer” at arms length. We soon found out. One day we discovered someone outside F. H. S. in a Studebaker wait¬ ing for her. He was a second " Buddy Rogers.” Then she brought him to the Junior Prom. Were the girls jealous of Harriet? We can’t say, but we know his eyes were for Harriet only. After graduation Harriet intends to go to Burdett, where she is to take a secretarial course. She certainly chose right, for what other person could be more on the dot than Harriet? We know she will succeed, and we extend our best wishes for her happiness in her chosen profession.

Frances was a good sport and loved by all who came in contact with her. All four years, Frances was faithful and worked hard to keep the H. S. orchestra going. She was known as " the pianist of the orchestra. " " Fran " also took part in athletic sports, and she was indeed good. Frances intends to enter Framingham Normal School next fall and we wish her all the luck in the world for a happy and prosperous career.

Thirty-Six Herbert Vendetti Henry Houle Mildred Daddario Cecilia Perkins §- (Junior Glass History We (the class of 1931) entered our first year at Franklin High School with 130 mem¬ bers. We were as shy and afraid as most freshmen are, but it soon wore off when we became accustomed to our new school life. Our first social event was the Freshman Acquaintance Party, given to us by the Seniors. We all had a good time and also became acquainted with our new friends and schoolmates. The inter-class trackmeets were held in the early fall. Both were followed by a supper served to those taking part in the meet. Our girls surprised everyone by winning first place. Although we did nothing outstanding in any other sports this year, much promising material was brought out. The first show we had in dramatics was the part one freshman played in the Hallowe’en play entitled “And The Lamp Went Out.” In the annual play two of our members had parts important enough to go on the pro¬ gram. A number of others showed talent as “supes.” The mid-year exams followed soon after Christmas vacation which had passed al¬ together too quickly. We met these with the usual dread but found they weren’t half bad. Several of our class entered in the preliminary prize speaking contest. Our summer vacation along with our first year at High School passed before we knew it, and after two short months we found ourselves back at school as Sophomores. This year we moved from the top floor down to the second. Henry Houle, Peter Kornicki, and Billy Tracy upheld our class reputation in football. In the girls’ hockey we were represented by Rita Boland, Mary Tolo, and Gertrude Ketover. The track meets were held as usual in the fall. The girls won second place even if the boys didn’t make quite such a good showing. Both meets were followed by a supper and an entertainment in the auditorium. The girls also had a dance. The Literary Club was organized this year but did not have public meetings. Our one big offering to this society was a brief pantomime of Pilgrim ' s Progress. This was a huge success except that the other members found our interpretation of angels rather amusing. President Vice-President Secretary T reasurer Thirty-Seven Two of our members were numbered in the cast of the Christmas play, “The Enchanted Christmas Tree.” Much to our dismay we were nothing but “extras” in this year’s annual play, but we certainly were talented ones. We had six boys in the orchestra and also a very good showing in the band. Billy Tracy was the only boy who made the first team in basketball this year, but there were many others who played as substitutes and on the second team. Joe Scaccia and Billy Tracy represented us in baseball. The girls ' physical classes held a special exhibition in the gymnasium this spring. A large number of the Sophomore girls took part. Several of our members stood high in the preliminary speaking contest. In our third year we entered with about 75 members. Our class officers are: Herbert Vendetti, president: Henry Houle, vice-president; Mildred Daddario, secretary: and Cecilia Perk ins, treasurer. Henry Houle, Billy Tracy, and Peter Kornicki stood out on the football team again this year. In basketball we more than held our own with five men, Billy Tracy, Francis McCarthy, Henry Houle, Arthur Casey, and Joe Scaccia playing on the team which won the South Shore Tournament. McCarthy ' s spectacular basket which won the annual Woonsocket game was an example of the fine playing of the Juniors. Herbert Vendetti held the leading part in the Christmas play entitled ‘‘Fiat Fux.” After much class discussion and debating on the subject, we decided to get our class rings this year. These came shortly after Christmas. A Bridge Club was formed among the girls this year and held weekly meetings. The officers are: Gertrude Ketover, president; Cecilia Perkins, vice-president; and Dorothy Stevens, secretary and treasurer. Although the annual school play has not yet been presented, several Juniors have leading parts. We are now in the midst of the preparation for the Junior Prom which we are going to make the biggest and best, yet. The decorations are to be in the form of an old-fashioned garden scene. We are looking forward to our last year at High School with high hopes and many plans. If next year is the success that our first three years have been, we shall have enjoyed our High School years to the full.

You can judge the results of our earnest endeavors for yourself. Things didn ' t start easy, they never did in our class, so it was rather late when we started work on the yearbook. That meant that the Editorial Staff had to devote practically all their time to work for the yearbook. They had to chase up the Editorial Committee and keep them active along the prescribed lines of labor. This in itself was a task that would tax the patience of Miss Wiggin herself; in fact it frequently did. The Staff deserves a rising vote of thanks from the entire class. We’re thinking of pre¬ senting each member with a shiny wooden pencil with real lead in it and a nice eraser. The eraser is perhaps the most appropriate part of the gift, for all through the struggle to get the book pub¬ lished, the Staff had an ever-increasing need for erasers.

Junior Prom University of Maine Stein Song Forty-Four Rsihe £Band The Franklin High School Band has developed, in four years, from a handful of boys, a capable director, and a few battered horns, into a large, well governed, and useful organization. The independent spirit has stimulated in the members characteristics which arc universal benefits. The playing ability of the boys has awakened an appreciation for good music and talent. Marching has developed their mental and physical qualities in such a way that their minds and bodies cooperate. Band entertainments have brought out the hidden talents of many of the members and also have given the general public an idea of what a modern boys’ organization is like. Association with other boys on common terms has developed a sense of democracy which is responsible, to a considerable extent, for the rapid progress made by the organization. At the beginning of the school year Clifford Feeley was elected president of the organiza¬ tion. Alfred Prendergast, vice-president, and William Tracy, treasurer. These boys have piloted the Band through a successful year and are to be complimented for their good work. During the school term several new features were added and a few old ones changed. The first of these was the separation of the Band Banquet and Entertainment. By this change no events had to be rushed and more of the guests and friends were able to enjoy the excellent programs. Another feature was the introduction of the General Band Inspection. This con¬ sisted of a personal examination, a music-playing ability test, and was followed by an enter¬ tainment and dance. By the first two a boy could find out just what he was worth to the organization and where his weak points were. A dance was added to the list of Band events. The music furnished was excellently rendered and was enjoyed by a good crowd. The boys have decided to buy new uniforms so as to improve their public appearance. The new Band, which was organized last September for those boys who desired to play in the Band but who were without previous musical experience, was allowed to practice with the senior Band several times during the year and was finally joined to it. During the year the boys made " Doc” Frazer an honorary member of the organization as a means of showing their appreciation for the efforts which he had made on their behalf. As the Band is playing standard music with a high degree of efficiency there is no diffi¬ culty in securing jobs enough to cover financial accounts. Among the many to be offered during May and June are the playing for the Memorial Day Parade, various class day exercises, the Brockton Y. M. C. A. inter-school track meet, and a scries of concerts on the Common. The organization has been asked to play at the Red Men’s Celebration which is to be given in Sep¬ tember. The band has played at many football and basketball games and will doubtless play at many of the baseball games during the remainder of the season. The organization is deeply indebted to Mr. Albert T. Patty, founder, instructor, and director. It is only through hard work and constant alertness on his part that the Band is able to boast of its splended success. Mr. Alfred Webber has also been a valuable asset in instructing and advising the boys. The rapid progress of the Band in the past, the ever-increasing popu¬ larity, and the benefits which it gives the graduating members by preparing them for college bands, is a durable source of pride and a high progressive standard for the school. Forty-Six Forty-Seven lUif High riuml iitanh c (5he Orchestra The year of 1930 has been a very successful one for the orchestra, under the able direc¬ tion of Mr. A. C. Webber. Most of the assemblies were enlivened by the assistance of the orchestra. Rehearsals have been held twice a week, Mondays and Fridays. Outside of the school affairs the orchestra played for the Churchmen ' s Union, Exhibition, Faculty Night, Mr. Marvin’s Reception, " Butter and Egg Man " given by the Studio Players under the direction of Charles F. Frazer, Norfolk Cancer Hospital, and the Hallowe ' en Party. A special feature presented by Mr. Webber was a concert of classical and semi-classical selections. This is the first time an enter¬ tainment of this kind has been given. One of the most interesting assemblies of the year was given entirely by the orchestra. The students wish that they could have more assemblies of this sort. The Personnel of the orchestra: Violin — Clenric Hancock.

However, the upperclassmen graced our stage several times, principally in “The Wedding Present” presented at Hallowe’en, and in the annual school play, “The Three Wise Fools, " both under the learned coaching of our “Doc” Frazer. We Freshmen were “allowed” to put on several “little” entertainments, namely, the Thanksgiving play “all by ourselves” and several other assemblies. Sophomore Year In our Sophomore Year we were still sort of in the background and the two Hallowe’en plays. “And The Lamp Went Out” and “The Travellers,” and the Christmas play, “Nelli- jumbo.” found no members of our class in their casts. In the former play the " Freshmen” were allowed to carry the lamp out, but that was a little too undignified for us Sophomores. In the school play, which was beautifully presented, we Sophomores were allowed parts in the “mob scenes” as “extras,” for you know that “Doc " says, “It’s the little things that count in the production of a play. Junior Year The year 1928-29 saw our class coming to the foreground, making our debut in the Hallowe ' en plays. “The Flattering Word " and “The Ghost Hunters.” Margaret Abbott. Robert Rickard, Charles Metcalf, were Juniors who had parts in these plays. At Christmas time “Doc” presented a fanciful play. “The Enchanted Christmas Tree,” made very beautiful with the singing of several carols. The Cast: Josiah Benton . Ella Benton . An Expressman .

Fif ty-Five Fifty-Six When we first entered F. H. S., we were an exceedingly small class, not numerically, but physically, and, as the first few days of schoolwork went by, we thought ourselves perhaps not quite so smart as we felt we were, on leaving the Junior High. It was in these first two weeks of school that the Freshman Acquaintance Party came to pass. According to all the standardized rules and regulations, this dance was supposed to make us feel at home and put us on more or less equal terms with the upper classmen. Perhaps it did help our social standing a bit, but the change was so slight as to be invisible to the naked eye, and glasses didn ' t help a great deal, either. Most cf us sat around with our mouths opened wide, feeling somewhat out of place as though we were getting a peek at a bit of life into which we wouldn ' t be initiated until the following year at the earliest. We took a great deal of interest in the sports, for some of our boys made the football team, which achievement seemed to us the very height of physical perfection. Basketball fol¬ lowed football, and here again we focused our attention. Most of the boys in our class strove mightily to make the ‘ Midgets,” while one of our classmates actually played on the first team. We began to feel ourselves taking root, especially the girls, who seemed to appeal more to the upper classmen than we gawky, spindly boys. About this time, a terror that had been lurking in the background bore down on us. Exams! We all studied for them that first year, but Fm afraid we’ve sort of gotten out of the habit of applying ourselves to schoolwork since then. The basketball season came to a close and we turned our attention to baseball. Several of our class-mates made the team, so of course we gave them a reasonable amount of support. There were no events cf importance during this period — the Junior Prom didn ' t mean much to us then, although some of our members did get all a-twitter over it. We were all more or less elated because school was coming to a close, and when it did finally end, we just betook ourselves to our various summer occupations and waited hopelessly for school to start again. Our Sophomore year, — we were all big-shots. -— we knew all that was to be known, made fun of the freshmen, and had a great time enjoying our pride in advancement. It was during that Sophomore year, that we took to dancing, smoking, staying out nights, and de¬ veloping a reputation for frivolity. The order of events was the same that year as our first except that we took more interest in the social life of the school. Our class became prominent in athletics, dramatics, and practically everything but good behavior. We managed to pass over this year without any noteworthy events. At least, those that were noteworthy, aren ' t pub¬ lishable. Our Junior year started off as Junior years just will start. We amused ourselves by means that might be described by the adjectives, original, revolutionary, and violent. We were sessioned into submission, and then we managed to pursue the even, smooth tenor of our way through the routine of sports, social activities, and, sad to relate, studies when other activities would permit. The big event of the year was the Prom. The march went off with the usual quota of slips, mistakes, and dramatic features. The gym was decorated with a young fortune in crepe paper and streamers. The walls displayed remarkable taste in a variety of aquatic mar¬ vels such as rubber boots, row-boats, clams on the half-shell, fish that haven ' t yet been classified, crabs and cuttlefish. There were also assorted types of mermaids, figures to suit every taste — Fifty-Eight no matter how eccentric the tastes might be. All enjoyed themselves at the Prom, whether they admit it or not. We finished up the year by being absent swimming the better part of each week from the time of the Prom until the end of the school year. This year we came back determined to be dignified, no matter how much it pained us. I know that our dignity and knowledge of facts has earned for us the respect, love, and envy of all the lower classmen. I don’t know how it is that I know this, because I have never seen or heard anything around school to bear out the statement, but there it stands, — take it or leave it. We have conducted ourselves as gentlemen and scholars all through this, our last year here at F. H. S. This year we had successful teams in every branch of sport. The football team won five and lost three games. The basketball team won the South Shore Tournament for the second successive year. We wish them luck for a third victorious year which will clinch the cup for Franklin. If the baseball team keeps up the good work, they will end up very near the top of the League. So far they have won all but one League game. Walpole, with its superior size, has always turned out a victorious team. Exams didn ' t bother us a bit this year; we’re hardened to them now. An exam more or less makes almost no difference at all to us. Right now the Senior class is anticipating a fine time at the Junior Prom which will be easily the most colorful since our arrival here. The walls are all decorated with scenes both horticultural and pastoral. The gymnasium is made up to represent a flower garden, with an angle of the mansion itself showing on the extreme right. The march is ably characterized by the word “complicated.” It is remarkably well- balanced and beautiful to behold, (when done correctly; otherwise, no.) We’re all hoping for the best and also hoping that the worst won ' t come to pass. The year is now drawing to a close, and, much as it pains us, we have to leave the old institute. The next events still ahead of us are the play “Strongheart,” with a cast almost entirely composed of Seniors; after that the Alumni Banquet, (at least we hope it is coming) ; and then all the affairs that go to make up a graduation, tagging along behind that. As a general rule, we feel ourselves to be too small to get out and cope with the affairs of the world, but of course we’ve got to, and there ' s no time like the present, especially in our case. I can think of no time better suited to our debut into life than right now as we come fresh from four years’ training here at F. H. S. A situation that would please us would indeed be hard to find, for in school we have encountered every available, and quite a few unavailable situations extending from comic to tragic, and we all hope to pull through them in life as we have always managed to, here at school. Let’s go, gang, and show the world what we can do. Remember that Opportunity knocks but once, so if you hear two or three knocks, pay no attention to them. It’s probably only the iceman or a bill-collector. Class Motto Non confectum sed inceptum. Not finished but begun. Class Colors Lavender and Silver Class Marshal Herbert Vendetti Fifty-Nine Sixty “-(sihe Glass ‘ ' Will We, the Senior Class of the Franklin High School, in the town of Franklin, in the County of Norfolk, in the State of Massachusetts, knowing our end to be near, but being of sound mind and body, do make, publish, and declare this to be our last will and testament, thus revoking all former wills made by us. First: We desire that our just (and also unjust) debts be forgotten by those to whom we owe them. On account of both the rising price and the increasing demand for cigarettes we are not able to meet our debts in the manner prescribed by law. Second: We give, devise, and bequeath the remainder of our properties, real or imagin¬ ary (chiefly of the second class) in the manner set forth at length in the body of the will. To the teachers: To “Doc,” permission to join the Local Union of Stockmen specializing in Mary ' s little favorite. To Miss Ellen S., a censored edition of “All Quiet On The Western Front,” or a sophisticated Modern History class. To Mr. Webber, a pair of ear muffs — that as a Bates man the “Stein Song” may not be so frequently inflicted on him. To Miss Callahan, a n w record for her victrola, entitled “Silence Please, " with words and music by her, also. To Mr. Dobertv, bigger and better chalk trays or an hour a day in which to practice pitching chalk. To Mr. MacPhee, a new red flannel shirt to replace one lost, strayed, or stolen. To all the other members of the faculty, our sincere appreciation for all that thev have done for us in the past. To the Juniors: To Charles Harris, a race track for his own private use. To “Joe” Malloy, the permission to become our own Rudy Vallee. To “Bill” Tracy, a car to come home in after those long walks on the Plains. To Robert Holcomb. “Johnny” Costello ' s seriousness. To Brooks Moore, a ticket good for 100 trips to Bellingham on the Johnson bus lines. Don’t ask us why. To “Gilly” Hodgdon. all the candy that he can cat without causing a sugar shortage. To “Hank” Vendetti, the right to act as an ad for a permanent waving shop. To Rose D’Errico, an electric vibrator and permission to let her brother use it, too. To Virginia Connelly, the right to become class vamp. To “Fran” McCarthy, position as leader of the famous Locker Room Harmonizers? ? ? Sixty-One To the Sophomores: To " Romeo ' ' Palumbo, a position as double for George K. Arthur. To Melvin Pinsky, the right to be known as " The Great Lover. " To " Haggis " Kalunian, a pair of non-stretchable suspenders. We are sure they will prove a welcome relief. To " Stan " Woolford, we leave a field in Virginia. To " Bernard " Davis, the right to call all girls named Cecilia by some other title. To " Gwen " Straw, the right to open an information office concerning Dean — and its masculine content. To " Rosie " Pasquantonio. a bench on which she may entertain a certain Dean student at noon hours. Patronize home products. Rose. To the Freshmen: The right to feel and act grown up as we so seldom do. To " Eddie " Crothers, 1 gross of cracked bats in recognition of his services to the ball team. To Jane Talbot, a Ford Truck on which to carry her cello. To Henry DeBaggis, the right to wear a moustache -— We feel it will make or break him. To " Charlie " Mason, a Gillette razor and a recommendation that he use it. To " Dolores " Martel, a hammock for her front porch for tired basketball players during the summer. To " Johnny” Riley, the right to be known as " Flash.” Lastly, we appoint Julius Caesar as executor of our last Will and Testament, so revoking all former wills made by us. In witness whereof we have hereunto ascribed our names this 18th day of June, 1930. President, Robert Farrington Vice-President, John Goodwin We whose names are undersigned do certify that on this day, 1930, the testators above named subscribed their names to this instrument in our presence and hearing, declaring this same to be their last will and testament and requested all and each of us to sign our names thereto, as legal witnesses to the executors thereof, which we hereby do in the presence of the testators and of each other on the day of said will. Sixty-Two Adam Fool Little Orphan Annie Buster Keaton i c ls)bo , s HiPho fifteen 9 ears Jrom SN ' crw Margaret Abbott Margaret is now the successful successor to Dorothy Dix, who resigned the position of solving sundry love affairs, willingly leaving the field open to Margaret. Alvah Aldrich Amid our ranks we now find a young man who can be termed very calm, cool, and col¬ lected. Never in a nervous frame of mind, A1 turned to the profession of nerve specialist. He merely sits in the presence of his patients for a half-hour or so, and the result is that they leave, completely cured. Why could not the rest of us have thought of some easy “get rich quick idea’’ such as this? Mary Avadanian Mary has always been an extremely good-natured young lady and there is not a doubt but what this has helped her to be able to command people as she does, for Mary is now Boston ' s only woman traffic cop. She has often been told that it would be of benefit to tourists if all officers of the law were more like her, for instead of arresting them, she laughs at them, and they go jovially on their way. Eleanor Baker Eleanor has been one of the few really studious young ladies of our class. They say that virtue is its own reward, and Eleanor has certainly received hers; for she is the happy recipient of a large fortune left to her by some loving relative. As a result, she now lives in ease and luxury in Beverly Hills, California. Russell Barnes As we all know, Commander Byrd has retired from the life of exploration and Russell has taken up the course where Byrd left off. Good luck, Russell, on your new vocation, but don ' t explore too far, for you ' ll go beyond our depths and we wouldn ' t want that to happen for the world! Sophie Bis and Virginia Mellor Sophie and Virginia are two of our members who had to ride the rocky road to Dublin from Bellingham in order to soar to the heights of F. H. S. They are still soaring, however, even though they go skyward instead of toward Franklin High. Virginia flies daily from New York to Boston with the mail and Sophie pilots her own little seven- passenger plane over the same route. Keep soaring, girls, but come down to earth to see us all, once in awhile. Velma Byrnes It was rumored that the only reason Henry Ford recovered from his last illness was the excellent and lovable nature of Velma’s nursing. Who would have thought she’d pick a Ford? Everett Cataldo “Just get out there and do your best, fellows, and you ' ll be sure to win,” said Coach Cataldo to his Harvard quintet just before the big game with Yale. Who dreamed that Everett had any knowledge of Basketball? Mary Costello " Oh, she’s going to jump!” Yes, Mary started to jump the minute she entered H. S. and she’s jumping yet, for she is now the high altitude exhibition jumper at Curtiss Flying Field. Keep on jumping, Mary, and we sincerely hope you may jump to the highest success. Sixty-Three c lQ)ho , s c Who ( continued ) Mary Cruise Mary is another one of those prim little misses who turned our heads completely when she announced her chosen profession. She is now classed with the best of them in auto racing, and just the other day, she made nearly 200 miles an hour in her new rocket car. Again the old saying rings true that “small packages contain big things. " Francis Desper Francis, while in High School, always seemed to have many thoughts stored away in his head, but he never, never talked about them. He earns his living by talking now, much to our surprise, for he’s at the present time, Barnum’s best spieler. Robert Farrington Robert is now resting at his home on the Potomac after a successful four years of ful¬ filling the office of President of the United States. He first had this idea in High School, as he here became accustomed to the duties of a President. Marshall Ficco “Toot! Toot! Stop that speeding!” These arc Marshall ' s most common words now- a-days. for he is Franklin’s renowned Chief-of-Police. Marshall was a speedy lad in H. S. and to think of it — instead of increasing speed he’s stopping it! Margaret Goodwin Margaret is now a judge in the District Court of Franklin, by the way, the first in the history of the town. Her acqaintance with judges and attorneys has helped her con¬ siderably toward this position- Francis Humant Francis was the well-known sax player of our orchestra and he stuck to it through thick and thin. He is now the leading sax player of Mai Hallett’s orchestra. Betty Hutchinson Betty is now an Orator in the United States Senate, helped to this position by her fellow-colleagues in Franklin. Betty, it can well be said, knew her dramatics and orations. Marion Holmes Marion is now Dean of Wellesley College. We might have known Marion would do something to gain control of at least some of the members of the so-called “weaker sex.’’ Marion just couldn’t be strict with anyone and to prove it, the girls of the school recently voted her the most popular Dean in the history of Wellesley. Muriel Reilly and Doris Johnson Muriel and Doris have been excellent representatives of our commercial department, and, due to their excellent instruction in F. H. S., they are now passing their knowledge on to their many pupils at Burdett’s Business School. Frances Keefe Frances is engaged in an occupation quite different from what our classmates expected. She is now taking up space on the silver screen, and is known as Joan Myers. We all knew that Fran was bound to make a name for herself, but how little we dreamed she’d do it this way! Well, we can rightly blame Doc for putting these fantastic fancies into her head! Sixty-Four ‘Who’s RDho ( continued ) Helen Lyons A devotee of Louis Pasteur, famous chemist, Helen decided to follow in his footsteps. She is now the outstanding woman chemist in the United States. A certain part of our English class is responsible for this! Charles Metcalfe and Marjorie Casey Charles has always been an acknowledged authority on designing, featuring especially the latest styles for ladies, and now we find him the manager of a Parisienne Shop on Fifth Avenue. We offer him congratulations and best wishes for his future success and also because of his choice of models, for Charles searched the city of New York for a head model, but finally came back to Franklin and took Marjorie with him to fill this position. Preston Mason Two years ago we read that Preston had entirely outmatched Gus Sonnenberg while wrestling for the fun of it in the champ ' s training quarters, but today we read that Gus is off the map altogether. Nice work. Duddy! Ernest Molla Ernest has always been quiet but observant in F. H. S. and to prove this fact he has shown us that he was at least observant enough to realize the profit in starting a business in Africa. Just to let you in on it, Ernest is making hope chests which he sells to the native girls and in which they keep their many trinkets. Good work, Ernest! Mae McGuire Mae. too, has turned to a field much farther away than the rest of us. I say " farther away” because she is now a missionary in China and she finds that the Chinese language is quite different from that spoken in good old U. S. A. Mae always did " good work” in High School; she is doing " good work " now in a far different field, and we’ll wish her the best of luck and hope that she keeps up the " good work. " Patricia O ' Brien and Elizabeth Dailey Patricia and Elizabeth are now running a hotel on the southern tip of Florida. Success will be theirs if the hotel will only have intellect enough to run up north when one of those southern tornadoes comes its way. Alfred Prendergast Mr. Prendergast, formerly known to us as " Al,” is a man of ease and luxury as he is the famous author of " Professor’s Aid " Volumes, the first of which is named " Quietness Must Reign In The Classroom.” Lucky for Al, he didn ' t write it in High School. Melvin Rainville There has been a saying, " Like Dad, like Son.” Melvin has followed this saying and plodded on in his father’s footsteps, although he surpassed him, (as most children do) by many degrees, for he is now President of United States Manufacturing Company. We can all guarantee that he will make a good one. Louise Salamano While a Senior in High School, Louise willingly did her share of the office work. She now has an office of her own, but she doesn ' t do the stenography thereabouts, for the sign outside her door reads — L. E. Salamano, Attorney-at-Law. We have not heard as yet as to the number of clients she has had, but we will surely patronize her if necessity should call. Sixty-Five c Who y s c Who ( concluded. ) Alice Shangraw It seems that eastern life was much too tame for Alice, so she deserted us for the bound¬ less prairies of the West. She had difficulty in getting ranch work, but she had her mind made up, and now. after years of hard labor, she is the forewoman of Montana’s largest ranch, and the cowboys find in her a very efficient “boss.” Harriet White Harriet, too, seems to have forsaken U. S. A. and Franklin, for you may now locate her in England. You ask her occupation? Well, she is the hair-dresser, manicurist, and what-not for Her Majesty, the Queen. Harriet was an excellent example of her future trade while in High School, and we might have known she would take advantage of it. Dale Winters and John Carr Both Dale and John were known as brainy lads in F. H. S. and both have, as the saying goes, brought Webster back on the ground; for Dale is Massachusetts’ leading politician, and John has formulated a new book called “Carr s Improvised Dictionary.” — How well we might have known this! Gladys Baker Gladys, much to our astonishment, has resorted to the occupation of private secretary to Harold Lloyd out in Hollywood. Interesting vocation, eh, what? This movie business seems to be quite popular. Wanita Webb True to the old saying, Small of stature, quick of wit,” Wanita has chosen a profession far di fferent from that of the rest of our classmates. She is now chief jester for the King of England. Although this is a happy profession, it is a very sad case for the rest of us. Who dreamed she’d forsake U. S. A. and Franklin? Stanley Fleming Upon touring the city of Franklin (Franklin, by the way, has become a city since we left F. H. S.) you soon see a very peculiar-looking sign hung outside a very ancient¬ looking abode, and upon inspection you read “Antiques for sale here — S. Fleming, Prop.” You enter and suddenly in a very out-of-the-way corner you find what was once a Ford — black with red and green trimmings. Stanley acquired this while in High School, but evidently it is not old enough, even now, to be classed as an antique for he simply can not sell it or give it away. Arlene Maclvor A rlene had an exceptionally good streak of good luck shortly after leaving High School, for, through some means or other, she won a prize which consisted of a very extensive trip to the South Seas. She is not back yet and little can we blame her, for she is the owner of a very profitable jewelry business there. Dora Pepin As a result of her excellent training in the subject of Economics, Dora decided to go on with it. Although it is a difficult subject to master, Dora has done so and she is now a very highly paid writer, for she has taken up the field of work left by Roger Babson, and is writing articles based upon Economics for such famous magazines as “Commerce and Finance.” Why is it that girls usually manage to get where there is something concerning financial matters in view? Lincoln MacDonald Lincoln is now what is known as a “country gentleman.” Five years ago Link invented a machine whereby one can stay at home in bed and listen to the discussion in the class¬ room at school. This is done by means of a radio equipment which Lincoln developed in connection with his telephone work during his Senior year in High School. George O Brien George started out to be a professor of chemistry, much influenced by a certain member of our faculty, but he soon found out that his pupils surpassed him in their knowledge of the subject, so George has resorted to the pleasant occupation of a veterinarian. What have you found in your new job, O ' B? Ethel Margaret Fisher Sixty-Six Sifts to Some of the Glass of 1930 Now that our High School days will be no more, we think it is appropriate to give the members of the class of 1910 some little gifts to remind them of happy times at F. H. S. For such illustrious members we felt a store no less exclusive than that of J. J. Newberry could be considered. A telegram was sent to the headquarters at Bingville. Our efforts were rewarded by the immediate arrival of an airplane loaded with wares. From the assortment we chose the following: Howard Abbott. A biscuit. To Howard we give this biscuit so that when he gets hungry he won ' t have to eat his finger-nails. Eleanor Allen. A house. We wish her success in homemaking and hope she ' ll have the “Barnes” to go with it. Lois Alexander. A hat. You see it’s rather a high hat. Perhaps Lois will want to use this in the future. Marjorie Belcher. Needle and thread. These are just to start her on her career as Bellingham’s leading dressmaker. Alden Besse. A club. Alden may need to use this to ward off the attacks made by the feminine sex. Louise Brunnclli. History book. Louise spent so much time with her history during her high school days, we give her this miniature so that she may never be parted from it. John Costello. Complete volume of Alibis and Excuses. There is one for every occa¬ sion. Never known to fail! Lewis Crandall. Grow Tall Quick Tonic. It is guaranteed to work overnight. With the help of this, Lewis may someday rise in the world. « Mary Crothcrs. List of fashionable resorts. Mary has worked so hard in J. J. New¬ berry’s we’re sure she needs a rest. Everett Denning. Coffee. If he drinks enough of this he may be able to stay awake in his future history classes. Mary DeBaggis. Heart. This is one on which she can always depend. Orlando D’Errico. A doughnut. This will put him in mind of his father ' s business. At the rate he’s going now, he’ll soon be able to get through the hole. John Dowling. Coupon. This entitles him to a free copy on " How to Stop Stam¬ mering.” By carefully following the directions he will soon be the most eloquent speaker of the Class of 1930. Nicholas DiPaola. An orange Undoubtedly this will remind him of better days spent in California. Ethel Fisher. Medal. We award her this in recognition of her all-around ability during her career at F. H. S. Clifford Feeley. Toothpicks. “Cliff” has given so many away, we’re afraid someday they ' ll give out. John Goodwin. A calendar. John is such a busy boy and is so forgetful we give him this calendar to help him remember his important engagements. Alice Hale. A star. This may help her to remember that she was the star pupil of our class. Sixty-Seven Robert Jacques. Milton ' s poems. We hope this will remind him that he was the poet of the class of ’30. Sally King. A thermometer. Sally may find use for this in taking the temperature of her future patients. Anna Lan Ducci. A rooster. We hope this rooster is a prompt bird so that his crowing will get Anna to the office on time. Doris Landry and Blanche Moore. Adhesive tape. To these two pals we give this adhesive tape so they may be bound together even more firmly in coming years. Frank Lola. A doll. Now Frank need never be lonesome when he goes for a ride. Bernadine Mclnnis. Soda. Perhaps this will make Bernadine so effervescent that she will bubble over. Beulah Morse. Answer book. Now Beulah will have no difficulty in answering history questions. Ruth Mann. Nerve Tonic. We have never known Ruth to be nervous, but in case of an emergency we wish her to have something on hand. Evelyn Murphy. Book. To the class giggler we present this book called, “The Sup¬ pression of Giggles.’’ Ralph Osgood. A rattle. This will serve to amuse him when he has no senior girls with whom to play. Michael Purich. Magic Tonic. If used correctly, his little shadow, Pete Kornicki, will fit him better. Marion Ryan. Goggles. Provided she wears these she may take all the motorcycle rides she wishes without marring her beautiful eyes. Robert Rickard. A megaphone. Poor Robert; he never could be heard!! Helen Stewart. A ruler. Helen may use this to prove her height in case someone should doubt that she was the tallest girl in the class. Catherine Smith. Shoes. These are guaranteed never to wear out. May she dance on forever. Richard Stack. A dog. We present this little dog to Richard so he may always have something to pet. Althea Taylor. Flower. It’s very small now, but Althea always showed a preference for “buds.” Lois Wentzel. A bell. To the quietest member of the class we give this bell so that she may be heard hereafter. Frances Wigglesworth. Baton. We wish her success as future leader of Franklin High School’s orchestra. Now that each has received his gift, we hope that he is satisfied with it and that it may make him often think fondly of Franklin High School. MARJORIE CASEY Sixty-Eight Glass Song - § - Tune, “If You’re In Love You’ll Waltz’’ Verse I Nothing more alluring, Nothing so assuring. As is Franklin High For which we would die. Moments so entrancing Spent in High School here Now that we are leaving We hope we won’t fear While heart to heart we’ll sing this farewell song. Verse 2 We must pass along now To some goal, somehow And it try to win Without friends or kin. Time will speed away, though; We ll grow old and gray; Some may come again then And they’ll think and say While heart to heart we sing this farewell song. Chorus Oh! dear old Franklin High, We loathe to leave you now, But our four years have passed. Good bye we say at last. To teachers, schoolmates, too, We now must bid adieu. We hope you’ll not forget our Class While all the others pass. Ruth Mann Sixty-Nine ZKumor Lady on street: “You brute, where did you kick that dog?” Howard Abbott: “Ah, madame, thereby hangs the tail.” ’K In Latin — Abbott: “I have swallowed a monument more lasting than brass.” Miss Winchester: “Well, sit down and digest it.” Miss Wiggin: “Ralph, give me a sen tence with the word deceit in it.” “Boy” Osgood: “I have a pair of pants with a patch on de-seat.” Mr. Webber: “Besse, what is one use of ash wood?” Besse: “Used in making barrels.” Cliff Feeley: “Is that why they call them ash barrels?” jft s(c sjc afc Miss Wiggin: " Take this chair.

O ' Brien ♦ “Where the down upon his lip Lay like the shadow of a hovering kiss.” R. Farrington Seventy c football The 1929 football season was more successful than the 1928 season as far as winning games goes. In 1928 Franklin won three games, lest two and tied one. In 1929 we won five and lost three. This shows that every year, Franklin is improving as a football town, and next year, although the backfield is leaving school, the same line remains, with one exception, so the prospects are favorable for another more successful season. The team had more support this year than other years, and next year, with a good field, bleachers, and a fence around the field, football should support itself. We hope so, for we would like to see football gain a little more fame and importance as a high school sport here in Franklin. The more support given a team, the more incentive there is to win, and it follows that the team will have more of a chance to win a game than if they were fighting the other team alone, and there are many times in the crisis of football games, when a little additional strength means the winning or losing of the game. The season started off with a comparatively easy win when we beat Medway 19 to 0. This gave the team more confidence, and the next game also resulted in a victory over Foxboro 7 to 0, though this time it was somewhat more of a battle than the game with Medway. The next game on the schedule was a hard-fought battle in the first half of which the boys couldn ' t seem to get started. Needham took us into camp, 3 2 to 0. This brought the team down to earth again, but on the following Saturday against Canton, we repeated the Needha m perform¬ ance and couldn ' t seem to hit our stride until the second half, and went down, after a hot fray and rally in the last quarter, to a 14 to 7 defeat. It was a day or two after this game that “Leelac” developed appendicitis, which let him out for the rest of the year. He was quite a loss to the team as he was probably its best indi¬ vidual player. Coach MacPhee started right in to develop " Stan ' ' Woolford for " Leelac’s " posi¬ tion. and he filled it successfully for the remainder of the season, being exceptionally fast and skillful as a broken-field runner. The following Saturday we played cur old rival, Milford, and as the team was perhaps not so well organized as it might have been through the loss of " Leelac,” we were again de¬ feated, 19 to 7. This made the boys somewhat peeved and the next game with East Bridge- water found us victorious on the big end of a 1 5 to 0 score. Then came North Easton, a hard game, where we almost got foxed on the old, time-honored, sleeping-end play, but we outplayed them and again won, 13 to 6. Now, by the end of the season, the plays were going off with machine-like precision and when we played Hopkintcn, it was just too bad (for them, of course). We beat them 3 1 to 0, and have only one thing against them. There was neither heat nor hot-water in their dressing-room. What fun we had running around, freezing, over there. The Plymouth game was the last game of the season for us. The revenue on football not being sufficient to buy sweaters for the seniors on the team. Coach MacPhee had to get a game on which we could make some money. Plymouth held Thanksgiving Day as an open date and guaranteed us 5 09c of the gate receipts, so we took them on. This showed wonderful spirit on the part of the team, for they knew they were going up against an undefeated team that far exceeded Franklin in age, weight, and experience. The team went to Plymouth with the object of holding Plymouth down to a reasonable score, but even this was proven impossible. Plymouth seemed even better in action than in theory. The Franklin boys played good football, but Plymouth played equally good football with the addition of their superior weight and speed. They ran all around and all over our boys, but when they got thrown, how they were thrown! The Franklin boys had great difficulty in overtaking Spath, the star Plymouth back, but when the boys did connect -—- well, the miracle is that Spath still lives. The game ended with the score Plymouth 65, and Franklin 0. It wasn ' t so bad as it sounds, for while Plymouth made long gains and had a decided edge on the Franklin team, the game was hotly contested from be¬ ginning to end. The team this year was captained by Prescott Mason, and his fine leadership and good playing, (for he was the center of all the plays) was outstanding all through the season. He outpunted and outpassed every team we played and that was a very important factor in the playing of the team, as Franklin plays a passing and punting game. The team was engineered by Quarterback John Clifford Feeley, who is a living illustration of the triumph of brains over brawn. His head-work was another important factor in our method of playing. The 1930 football team is to be captained by “Fran” McCarthy who played center on the team this season. We know he’ll make a good captain and wish both him and the team all the luck in the world for a successful season next fall. Seventy-Two Seventy-Three iFranklin iiiglj iFoatball § quab £Boys’ Basketball The outlook for the basketball team this season appeared rather gloomy at the start of the season. With only two regulars, Capt. " Leelac” Cataldo and his running mate, " Bill” Tracy, back. Coach Hilbert had the proposition before him of developing an entirely new team. The team started slowly, losing three early-season games, but rapidly improved and developed a championship team. The season ended with 19 victori es and only 6 defeats, besides the victory for the second consecutive year at the South Shore Tournament at Brockton. This makes 21 consecutive home victories for Franklin, who have not been defeated on their home floor since their defeat at the hands of Fitchburg High two years ago. The team enjoyed several trips this season, the Christmas trip to Easthampton and Gardner, the Fitchburg trip, and the trip to Newport, R. I. Capt. " Leelac " Cataldo, one of the two veterans, finishes up, this year, his basketball career at F. H. S.. and leaves a great record behind him. In the three years that " Leelac " has been a regular, the teams have won 62 games and lost only 16. " Leelac” is, in the mind of Coach Hilbert, without doubt the best basketball player that Franklin High School has had in the five years that Mr. Hilbert has been coach. " Boy” Osgood started the season playing at center and alternated with Houle. In this position, " Boy” always gave a good account of himself. Towards the end of the season a spare forward was needed, so " Boy” stepped in and filled the vacancy like a veteran. " Bun” Abbott saw service in every game this season and proved his worth in all of them. " Bun” played a steady, level-headed game all season, and it was his basket that won the Bridge- water game for Franklin. Captain-elect " Bill” Tracy, the other regular this season, is making history in basketball for F. H. S. each year. This is his second year as regular and he will be back again next year. " Bill” was high scorer this year with 187 points. " Fran” McCarthy — " Shall we ever forget the Woonsocket game?” " Fran” certainly proved himself a hero this year. Although " Fran " wasn ' t the highest scorer on the team, his baskets were always there when they were needed most. Henry Houle started slowly this year but soon " hit his stride” and turned in a great account of himself in every game. Very few centers got the jump on Henry this season and Henry did his part of the scoring. " Joe " Scaccia — " Size doesn ' t mean anything,” said Joe, and he went out this season and proved it. Very rarely did Joe meet an opponent as small as himself, but also very rarely did Joe fail to outscore his opponent. " Unc” Casey, another giant in size, followed the same plan as " Joe” Scaccia and his skill in handling and shooting the ball made up for his lack in size. " Unc” was called upon to replace Capt. Cataldo in the final game of the South Shore Tournament and went in and played like a veteran. " Bob " Thompson captained the second team through a very successful season, winning 17 games and losing only 5. Later on, " Bob” was used on squad A and took part in the South Shore Tournament. Coach Arthur G. Hilbert certainly deserves a great deal of credit for the winning teams he has produced. Mr. Hilbert puts himself heart and soul into work with the team, and the team certainly shows it. Best of luck in the future, Mr. Hilbert, in producing your winning teams.

Although the co-captains. Preston and Prescott Mason, veterans of three years of baseball, are losses to the team through a recent ruling of the Massachusetts State Athletic Association concerning the age limit, nevertheless, the rather green squad of a month ago has developed into a fast playing bunch of ballchasers. The team has a fine backer in Walter S. MacPhee, the coach. Mr. MacPhee, with several years of both collegiate and professional baseball to his credit, is one upon whom the team can depend for making heady decisions. Lack of veterans loomed up as a very difficult proposition at the beginning of the season. Carr, a senior, and Tracy, a junior, were the only experienced players as candidates. However, that has been smoothed out by the excellent showing of the rest of the squad. Carr, the first string catcher, is one on whom the team can depend. “Lefty Bob’’ Thompson, with good support, should win quite a few games this season. Hamant, a utility man. is showing up well at first base. McCarthy is improving rapidly. Pisini is playing a good game at shortstop. Winters is holding down the hot corner. Tracy, the heaviest hitter on the team, plays left field exceptionally well. The Woolford brothers. ’’Stan’’ and “Norm,” are exceedingly fast on the bases. The team, as a whole, seems to be above the standard of those of the past few years. Lucine, a Freshman pitcher, will probably see service in a number of games. By next year Cummings, Moore, and Young should be ready to step into the shoes of the graduating players, Carr, Hamant, and Winters. As things look now, the prospects for next year are exceedingly bright. Seventy-Seven dir Is’ Basketball Scorers, timers, and captains ready? Such were the first words of the beginning of the basketball season for the girls of F. H. S. This year’s team seemed to lack pep, speed, and everything, but all who were acquainted with the school soon realized that this sad misfortune was due to the lack of veteran material. The team and squad was composed for the most part of a few stray Juniors and Seniors. They were seriously handicapped by the lack of experience and practice of speed to¬ gether, but nevertheless, every team-mate did her best, so what more could we ask? No more. All we can hope is that next year ' s team will be a howling success from the beginning to the end of the season. As a result of their basketballing, the girls who received their F ' s were: Mary Costello. Anna MacCahill, Jeanette Joyal, Barbara Dunn. Ethel Fisher—Mgr., Roberta Williams, Eliza¬ beth Dailey, Elizabeth Cray, Celia Namiotko. Seventy-Eight rack Franklin High School did not enter very fully into Track this year. The reason for this was because Mr. MacPhee had to give most of his time to baseball. There were only three meets this year: Medway, Framingham, and Norwood. We lost to Framingham and Norwood, but we de¬ feated Medway. There was a good deal of material, but it needed development and practise, which it didn’t get. Norman Woolford was a capable sprinter and , even though he had a trick knee, he held his own. Stanley Woolford returned to school this year, and he proved to be a good quartcr-milcr and a fair broad jumper. Ernest Molla again ran the half-mile, holding his own with the best of them. Robert Sewell ran the mile. He was narrowly defeated twice and he won against Framingham. Other men who placed frequently were -—- Thompson in the high jump and running broad. Abbott in the high jump. Ficco in the dashes. Moore in the shot put. Desper in the half-mile. Di Paola in the quarter-mile and two-twenty. Sullivan in the shot put. Tracy, Stack, Crandall, DeBaggis, Mucciarone, and Gianetti also ran. There will be only Molla. Abbott, Ficco, Desper, and Di Paola who graduate. Prospects for next year are very bright, and a success¬ ful season is hoped for. Seventy-Nine Autographs Eighty c Kumor " I am so fresh, the new blades of grass Turn pale with envy when I pass.” L.
