FRANKLIN HIGH SCHOOL LIBRARY r?» : ; 11 i ‘ 1934 Marks the first time there was a change in the cover. The seal has been reduced in size, the date has been placed in the lower left comer of the cover and a design has been added on the left. This cover was used through 1952. Most years it was dark blue. See 1940, 1944, and 1951 for the only changes during this period. FRANKLIN HIGH SCHOOL PUBLISHED BY THE SENIOR CLASS FRANKLIN HIGH SCHOOL H§nHHHH| i Ded ication TO OUR PRINCIPAL MR. ALBERT T. PATTY, WHO INTRODUCED THE IDEA OF A YEARBOOK IN FRANKLIN HIGH SCHOOL, AND WHO ALSO GAVE THE NAME, “OSKEY,” AND WHO GAVE SO MUCH OF HIS TIME IN HELPING US TO PRODUCE A SUCCESSFUL YEARBOOK, WE, THE CLASS OF 1934 DEDICATE THIS BOOK. ARTHUR W. HALE, Amherst A. B., Harvard Ed. M Superintendent of Schools Foreword If our yearbook recalls memories of the years spent at Franklin High School; of recollections of friends made there; we, the editors, shall feel that we have succeeded in producing, not only a book, but a store-room for memories. . . .

Especially do we extend our thanks to Miss Wiggin for her aid in correcting the material; to Irene Dumais and Filomena DiPietro for the great amount of time they spent in typing the manuscript; to all who contributed in the way of finances; to the photog¬ rapher for the fine pictures; and finally to the Ambrose Press for the excellent work¬ manship displayed in this book. i MR. CHARLES F. FRASER Sub-M.aster Sciences Franklin High is indeed fortunate in possessing such a versatile teacher. Whenever “Doc” coached a play it was sure to be a success. His intensive knowledge of chemistry and physics make him a valuable instructor. Who can ever forget the jokes he used to spring on un¬ suspecting victims? MISS ALICE WIGGIN, A.B. English A great personality is she, a person from whom you could seek advice when in doubt. None can equal her great knowledge of English. She was a teacher who was loved by all. MISS DOROTHY M. ANDERSON, A.B. Economics Miss Anderson is one of those teachers that Franklin High School would find very hard to do without. The splendid Glee Club is only one example of what she has done to make our school the best. ALICE L. BEANE, B.S. Physical Uh, huh? here’s Beanie, our peppy physical instructor. Of course you know her. If you don’t, take your first opportunity on a Monday or Wednesday and see her teach those dance steps. We’re sure none can beat Beanie, and only wish we could be in her classes another year. 8 PRISCILLA BULLUKIAN, B.S.S. This is our teacher of business subjects and a nice teacher she is, too. Her classes find her a pleasant teacher who is always ready to help. If you have been in her classes, you know she’s humorous and thus many a hard time is bridged easily. MISS HELEN M. CROWLEY, A.B. The all around good teacher of Horace Mann, whose pleasing temperament results in most interesting classes. JAMES J. DOHERTY, A.B. Mathematics Mr. Doherty is one of the best-liked teachers in the school. Through his efficient teaching, mathematics has been chosen, liked, and mastered by many. MISS MARION E. LAWRENCE, B.S. French She has pulled many of us out of the darkness of French verbs, into light. Her pleasant manner of teach¬ ing the subject is a reason why her classes were always so full. 9 MARION LITTLEFIELD, A.B. Latin One would never know that Latin was a dead lan¬ guage if he took it with Miss Littlefield, for she had a way all her own, of putting life into the supposedly dead language. bart j. McDonough, a.b. Athletics Bart, our physical instructor, coached our football, basket ball, and baseball teams this year. He was well liked by all the fellows, and we hope he will be here and coach for many more years. GERTRUDE E. MITIGUY, B.S. Homemaking—English In the Homemaking and English department we find her always ready to help to teach us new things in the line of cooking, sewing, and English. Just seeing the fine results in those classes we know that the pupils have interesting times there. MISS PETERSON Commercial Subjects Miss Peterson has worked hard to make us all efficient and business-like individuals. Who could help but follow her sound advice. 10 JOHN F. RODGERS Manual Training Mr. Rodgers was called from the Junior High School at the beginning of January to fill the gap left by Mr. Hilbert. He soon became acquainted and well-liked by the students and has capably filled the position. ELLEN E. SHEPARD, B.S. Histories Miss Shepard made all her History classes interesting, but then wouldn’t any subject be interesting with Miss Shepard and her gentle sociable satire? MISS WASHBURN, A.B. English Miss Washburn was our guiding light through the trials of English literature and composition. ALFRED WEBBER, B.S. Science and Biology As a Science and Biology teacher, Mr. Webber was excellent. And as a general good fellow, none better could be found. Then too, there is the orchestra which owes its success to Mr. Webber. 11 MRS. IRENE K. WIGHT Drawing Mrs. Wight’s wonderful help in our Junior Prom decorations has made her a friend of all of us. Although not all of us are artists, we have appreciated her help and work. AGNES SHEEHAN, B.S.S. The underclassmen at the Horace Mann certainly were fortunate in having Miss Sheehan for their teacher. Although we didn’t have her in many subjects, her pleasing smiles made her popular with all the students. 12 THE OSKEY STAFF The 77 Oskey 77 Staff Editor-in-Chief Walter A.

MacMICHAEL 199 School Street Franklin, Mass. “Mac” “The Lord is my Shepherd. " We take off our hats to you, Mac, to one who has stood by his school always, to one who has fought his heart out on the gridiron for his team, and last but not least to our class president. As our president for the last year he has worked hard to make every class undertaking a success, no matter how small it may have been. Grant’s quiet but sincere manner has won for him many friends during his four years at high school and will continue to do so in the study of the Ministry which he intends to take up at Gordon College starting next fall. Anyone with Grant’s personal qualifications and his bright outlook on the future will be successful in life’s work. So all you need now, Grant, is—“Good Luck.” Football 1-2-3, Track 1-2-3, Marshal 2-3 (Captain 4), Junior Vice- President, Senior President, Chairman Editorial Committee of Oskey. ARTHUR CURTIS 24 Mechanics Street Bellingham, Mass. “Art” ‘ ‘ And laughter holding both his sides —’ ’ A tall, fuzzy-headed youth from Bellingham with a grin that never wore out. Has anyone ever seen him worry? No, and I don’t think anyone ever will. His name adorned the honor roll for four years even though he did cause some fun in classes. Art made a fine Vice-President and as an actor—well, ask Doc. He was a good sport and would do most anything for anybody. And there were times in Math class when he was severely reprimanded for being too smart for the rest of the class. Art will surely succeed in all of his undertakings. Business Manager of the Oskey, Dramatics 4, Marshal 1-2-3-4. DOROTHY DOWLING Lincoln Street Franklin, Mass. “Dot” Born {or success she seemed. With grace to win, with heart to hold. " Like to have you meet Dottie, the girl who was at ease whether she was with some of her classmates or the President—yes, she’d meet the President with the same equanimity as she did some of us. Her one weakness was tangoes and we sort of wonder who first induced her to play them on the organ. Dot wants to be a missionary and we rather envy the little heathen to whom she goes to teach and help. Good luck, Dottie, and don’t let the cannibals eat you. Secretary of Junior Class, Secretary of Senior Class, Student Council, Dramatics. NORMA LONGTON Scott Hill Road South Bellingham, Mass. “Nonnie” Happy-Go-Lucky. The girl of the many nicknames and happy feet. Outside of class we have never seen Nonnie still for any great length of time. She enjoys life, yet does not value it. She may have been called “Farmer,” but if everybody could be like her we ' d ' want them all to be hicks. In fact we think that it was “Brainstorm” Longton who put South Bellingham on the map. How many times she has saved the day by playing the piano for socials. Her personality will take her a long way. Music 1, Marshal 1-2-3-4, Finance Committee Oskey, Basket Ball 1-4 (Captain), Dramatics 1-2, Class Treasurer 4, Track 3 4. 17 ALTHEA ALLEN Mechanics Place Franklin, Mass. “Al” “Alf” " Good luck comes to those who bring sunshine wherever they may go.” It is said, “Laugh and the world laughs with you,” and we believe this was Al’s motto while in high school—for in all her four years here, she was noted for her famous laugh. However, this was not her only good quality, for her good sportsmanship rated high as a char¬ acteristic. She played well throughout the basket ball season and helped to bring many a victory to F.H.S. Basket Ball 1-2-3-4, Marshall 4, Junior Prom Committee 3- VERNON ANDERSON Maple Street Franklin, Mass. “Andy” " It is the quiet worker who succeeds.” A fine student, a fine athlete, and a fine fellow. Andy came to us from Watertown at the beginning of our Junior year, and it was not long ere he proved himself an outstanding student and athlete, for his name appeared on the honor roll, and he made the first team in basket ball. Although he was a very quiet chap we all liked him very much. I don’t think he had one enemy in F.H.S. We don’t know just what Andy intends to do, but whatever he does, if he applies himself to the task as he has applied himself to his studies, he will surely succeed. Basket Ball 3-4, Editorial Committee 4. THOMAS BARNES 11 Orchard Street Franklin, Mass. “Tommy” Small of stature, quick of wit. He never spoke in class unless he said something important, but out of class his quick wit quite often caused us to hold our sides. Tommy never took part in any outside activities until his senior year, when he surprised us all by holding down a regular job on the football team. He was one of the reasons for the team’s success. Because of his ability to make decisions quickly and correctly when in a tight corner, we are sure Tommy will succeed in all his undertakings. Football 4, Interclass Basket Ball 1-2-3-4. FLORENCE ELIZABETH BARROWS Lake Street Bellingham, Mass. “Buffy” " A friend is another self.” Whenever that old Bellingham bus heaves in sight in the morning we know Buffy is on it, ready to go to school and make it a better place. We think she does make it a nice place. Buffy is a fine classmate— always seeing the good points in a person. We can find a lot in the line of study that is to her credit—and may see her in the future in a high place on the ladder of success. Glee Club 1-2-3. 18 RUTH BENNETT School Street Franklin, Mass. “Bennett” Beauty and grace go hand in hand. Ruth is known as Bennett to her classmates. Her brunette beauty, together with her fresh and natural color, make her, indeed, a charming person to meet. She is very adept as a Cello player. Ruth intends to be a nurse; anyone would just dread leaving the hospital even though he were sick if he had Ruth for a nurse. Hope you always succeed in whatever you undertake, Ruth. Orchestra 1-2-3-4, Glee Club 1-2, Dramatics 3 4, Hockey 1-2-3-4, Junior Prom Committee 3, Marshal 1—2—3—4, Cheer Leader 2 3 4. CONSTANCE ANN BERGHELLI 30 Alpine Place Franklin, Mass. “Connie " Never trouble trouble till trouble troubles you. Connie is truly the most untroubled miss in the class of ’34, if not in the whole school. We have never known her to lose her serenity under any circumstances. To go with this she has a never-failing sunny disposition. Doc never tired of “teasing " Connie but she always came up smiling. Anyone is fortunate who possesses this combination of traits and it will probably be a big factor in Connie’s general happiness throughout life. Glee Club 4. ALICE BLUNSDEN Cottage Street Franklin, Mass. “Alice’ ’ “Short of stature , quick of wit.” Introducing charming Alice in Wonderland! In spite of her shortness, she makes her presence known to everyone. Who could help but notice those sparkling blue eyes, that cute little ribbon in her hair, and that thrilling merry laugh? The Paris dressmakers certainly have a dan¬ gerous rival in Alice if we can judge by those beautiful dresses and coats she made and the prizes she won for them. With that art and her natural cleverness, she will certainly be successful. FRED BOZEK Center Street Bellingham, Mass. “Fred " “Silence is golden. " One would hardly realize that Fred was a member of our Senior Class, because for four years he remained very quiet, unobtrusive, and un¬ assuming. Now these are three factors which in the long run will count to his credit. On the gridiron he was the same, but was not regarded as such by the players he tackled. To make a long story short we can sum it all up and quote Fred as being a model student. Football 3 _ 4, Baseball 4, Marshal 3 4. 19 i WILLIAM CHRISTAKES Garfield Street Franklin, Mass. “Bill” “Christy” " I am sure care is an enemy to life.” Where is Christy? Down at the pool room. This is Christy’s favorite hangout. If he is not there, he will be seen driving a truck. If he is doing neither of these two things, he can be found in school. He likes to have a good time but he is also a good scholar. He has taken the general course in his four years in high school and he will probably go to work following his graduation. Good luck, Christy. HAROLD CLARK 1086 West Central Street Franklin, Mass. “Eskie” ‘ ‘ Always spin but never spoon. The gentleman often seen driving around town in a snappy Ford Roadster is Eskie. No matter if it is rain or shine Harold always has something big on after school. He truly has been a busy fellow but never too busy to laugh and joke with his classmates, which makes Harold a very desirable friend. Good luck to you, Harold, and may your future be as bright as your days in Franklin High were. Football 2-3, Orchestra 3- ROBERT CLARK Crescent Street Franklin, Mass. “Bob” “ Artistic Fingers. “Wit” and “Artist” should have been Bob’s middle names. Many times did a classroom burst into laughter at some of his witty remarks and dry humor. Everyone who has seen the “Nuts Parade” will also recognize Bob’s talent as an editor and cartoonist. He has taken the college course during his four years in school and he expects to continue his study of journalism at Boston University. We all know that Bob will succeed and we wish him the best of luck. Dramatic Club 4, Baseball 4. LOUIS COREY 20 Ruggles Street Franklin, Mass. “Louie” ‘ ‘ 1 shall succeed —’ ’ His hair is the envy of all. No hairdresser could have done a better job in making it so curly, and crinkly. Think of the care involved in keeping all those tendrils so nice and curly. He is considered one of Doc’s good-looking young actors, quite an actor at that. He was kept very busy at English period—always being called down to the office. If you’ve ever played cards with Louie you know what a card shark he is. Good wishes and success for whatever you attempt to do, Louie. Orchestra 1-2-3-4, Band 1-2-3-4, Dramatics 2-3-4, Operetta 1-2, Junior Prom Committee 3, Oskey Committee 4, Marshal 3-4. 20 RAYMOND DANTON 15 Washington Street Franklin, Mass. “Ray” Let the world slide—what care 1 ?’ ’ This is clever Ray who, we hear, can read a composition from a paper without having written it. It gets by the teacher, too;—pretty good, Ray. We’d never dare. We haven’t such a knack so we envy you. We hope you keep that knack, Ray. It will help if you ever are in a ticklish position, when you become a big business man. We think you should study shorthand; it requires quickness and brings good money. JEMMA DE BAGGIS 49 Ruggles Street Franklin, Mass. “Jemma” “Friend of all—Foe of none. ' ' Introducing Jemma with her sparkling eyes and flashing smile. She was a very popular member of our class and has scores of friends singing her praises. Everyone knew that Jemma’s favorite food was an enor¬ mous doughnut chock-full of luscious jelly, which she had filled ’specially for herself. Lucky Jemma! Jemma was a very good marshal, and did she make us little children behave? She was also on the finance committee for the “Oskey,” and her knowledge of business was cer¬ tainly valuable. Jemma took a secretarial course, and what a boon she would be to any office. Best wishes, Jemma. We know that you’ll make good. Track 1, Refreshment Committee Junior Prom 3, Marshal 4, Finance Committee Oskey 4. BRUNO DE CECCO 20 Howard Street Franklin, Mass. “Socksy” “A great sport and a friend to all. As happy as the day is long is Bruno. He always had a broad smile and a merry greeting for every one, no matter if a stiff exam haunted him. If the Commercial Law class began to get dull, “Socksy” would liven things up by starting a heated argument and would have everyone in the classroom feeling wide awake, ready to match skill with his next subject. Many a limb-weary linesman has been cheered and has responded to Bruno’s “Come on, fellows; they can’t beat us.” Not only was Bruno popular with the boys, but he also had a large follow¬ ing of sentimental girls. Football 2-3-4, Track 1-2-3, Interclass Basket Ball 1-2-3-4, Marshal 4. FILOMENA PAULINE DI PIETRO 19 Mechanic Street Bellingham, Mass. “Fil” " Always ready, always there. Always willing to do her share.” Hail, a maiden from Bellingham! Fil is just “pleasingly plump,” has a dazzling smile, and her sense of humor, plus her witty remarks, make her popular with everybody. Fil is always calm and collected- no matter how nerve-wrecking the circumstances. Remember how she rattled off an oral composition as if she were inspired, while we sat and bit our nails, dreading our turn? As a marshal, she had no rival. Fil is a very bright girl, too, and we can just see her as a secretary, attending to everything quickly and efficiently. Success is sure to come to a student of Fil’s ability and ambitions. Glee Club 2, Hockey Team 1, Commercial Club 3, Marshal 4, Operetta 2, Dramatics. 21 IRENE EDNA DUMAIS 38 Washington Street Franklin, Mass. “Irene” ‘ ‘Good nature and good sense were her companions. And now we introduce to you Irene of Di Pietro Dumais, partners in crime. If you would like a description—slender, dark haired, vi¬ vacious, and alert. She reminds us of a little girl just grown a little taller. Don’t take us wrong—she isn’t the least bit childish—she is fresh and untarnished by her contact with the mean old world. She is one reason why it is so pleasant to sit in the back of Room 110. Her ambition is to become somebody’s stenog., and we have no misgiving about sending her out into the world, because her training and per¬ sonality make her a girl who will stand out as just the girl who is needed. Committee Club 3, Oskey Editorial Committee 4, Dramatics. HARRY DUNNIBIER Lincoln Street Franklin, Mass. “Harry” “Short of stature, quick of wit.” The saying, “Good things come in small packages,” certainly runs true in Harry’s case. Although he is quiet, his words have always carried weight, whether in class or outside amongst classmates. Judg¬ ing by the way he handled himself while in high school we are sure he will be successful in the future, whatever his line may be. Student Council 2. RITA DUCHARME 242 Beaver Street Franklin, Mass. “Dutch” “Care-free, clever, and sporty.” With great pleasure we introduce Dutch, sharp shooter of our basket ball team. We’re sure that if Dutch keeps that good sense of direction, we’ll soon find her making a name for herself in this great world. Dutch is a friendly sort of person and we can always depend on her to help her school and us. She’s right there when it comes to studies, too. May our acquaintance with her go forward, as the years roll by. Varsity Basket Ball 2-3-4, Track 1-2-4. WILMA MARY EIDA Daniels Street Franklin, Mass. “Will” ‘ ‘A golden head—a golden heart. Is Wilma ' s smiling face familiar? It should be, for whenever there is a sign of physical activities, “Will” is always on the spot doing her best. She doesn’t say much, but she gets there just the same. She proved that in her needle work, making all those dainty things in sewing class. Will doesn’t say what she wants to be, but when she decides we know she’ll choose right. Track 1-2-4, Varsity Basket Ball 2-3-4. 22 EVELINE FARRINGTON 128 Pleasant Street Franklin, Mass. “Jackie” “Ev” “The world without fun is a poor one.” Here ' s a girl that was always happy. Her smiles never failed to bring an answering smile, regardless of the sex of the other party. One could always hear Eveline gaily singing a popular ditty down the corridors, not realizing, of course, that it was against the rules. She just had to show how happy she was. She loved to indulge in a heated argument and never failed to hold her side. Her ambition is to be a nurse, and then a doctor! Who wouldn’t go to Eveline for a heart ail¬ ment when she has really realized her ambition? We know you will succeed in your chosen work, “Jackie.” Dramatics 1-2-3, Dramatic Club 4- ANTHONY FICCO Alpine Place Franklin, Mass. “Tony” “Baby” “A friend in need is a friend indeed. During his four years in the Franklin High School Tony has found many friends, and in future years this will give him a decided edge over his rivals. Anthony has also taken part in and supported many school activities. He has been a valuable member of the band, and the work and time spent as a member of the Oskey committee and Junior Prom committee deserve much credit. Anthony has taken the General course through high school. He is not decided as to what he will do after graduation, but we wish him much success in whatever he undertakes. Band 1-2-3-4, Junior Prom Committee 3, Oskey Committee 4. DOMENICK FREDERICK FICCO 35 Alpine Place Franklin, Mass. “Dom” “Dina” “l am not a politician and my other habits are good.” Dina is our idea of something special. His personality is the type hard to find, for it is of the best. We admire his ability to do well- such a variety of things. His work done in the shop shows talent and real skill. His business-like manner has secured him positions as chair man of several committees, which positions he has executed with un¬ failing success. He was so popular with his fellow pupils they even composed a song in his honor to the tune of “Beautiful Girl.” “Dina m’ love” will remain in our memory long after “Beautiful Girl” has fled. Marshal 3-4, Oskey staff, Junior Prom Committee, Interclass Track 1-2-3-4, Glee Club 1-2. HAROLD FLEMING Oak Street Franklin, Mass. “Monk” “A Smile Tor Everyone. " A small quiet fellow who did much for the F.H.S band, for he tooted a horn for four years and he never seemed to run out of wind. Many good laughs were provided in study hall, because of Harold’s humor, but only in study hall, for in class he was very studious. He was friends with everybody, for he was always willing to help anyone in difficulty. Our best wishes for a successful career go with him. Band 1-2-3-4, Interclass Basket Ball 2-3 4, Baseball 4. 23 VERONICA WNUCOSKY 302 Washington Street Franklin, Mass. “Veronica” ‘ ‘ It pays to be clever. Reading books was Veronica’s hobby. She read anything from Horatio Alger to Shakespeare with fellows like Zane Grey and Joseph Lincoln sprinkled generously in between. And yet she always had her lessons done and proved that there was a happy medium between all work and all play. Here’s luck to you, Veronica, and by the way, have you read “Anthony Adverse” yet? Glee Club 3, Dramatic Club 4. ALEX GALUZA Pickering Avenue South Bellingham, Mass. “Prof” What is worth doing at all, is worth doing well. Ask the teachers who have been fortunate enough to have Alex in their class and they will tell you what a brilliant young scholar he is. Everything Alex does is done right, before it suits bim, which accounts for his good marks. The opposite sex doesn’t bother Alex much al¬ though it is no fault of the girls. Bellingham may add another name to her list of students who have been successful in their four years at Franklin High. Wish you luck in whatever you do, Alex. Junior Prom Decorating Committee 3, Art Committee for Oskey 4, Track 2. JOHN GEISHECKER East Central Street Franklin, Mass. ‘ ’Johnnie’ ’ “ Always there, but seldom heard from. John was one of the more quiet members of the class. He probably believes that “fewer words make fewer enemies.” But to those that know him better, John is the best of friends. He plays the violin well and he is largely interested in music. He has been a valuable member of the orchestra during the four years in High School. John has taken the college course and although he didn’t say much he usually said it right. He is undecided as to what he will do after graduation, but we give him a hearty send-off. Orchestra 1-2-3-4. GERTRUDE HAMM 1166 West Central Street Franklin, Mass. “ Vee’ ’ “A friend to all and a grand good sport. Vee’s beaming countenance has graced the halls of Franklin High for four years. Everyone liked “Vee.” She was so full of fun. She found everything funny and giggled at the least little thing. As a result, Vee had scores of friends and kept them. A good time is a better one if Vee is along. We don’t know what she is planning to do, but we surely wish her happiness and success. 24 WALTER ELMAN HAWKINS 51 Fales Street Franklin, Mass. “Happy” Wherever music can be heard—Happy may be found dancing. It would seem that he was very fond of the Frisco and each new step had to be conquered before he felt comfortable. His scholastic work was more or less of a bore to him during his four years here, but he found enjoyment in study hall, though he didn’t study. He was one of F.H.S.’s ardent rooters and cheered the basket ball team on to victory many times. And Happy could never be anything but happy! Junior Prom Committee. FRANCES ELIZABETH HILL 1331 West Central Street Franklin, Mass. “Fran” “Franny” " A tripping dainty miss, with spirit rather high. " Franny came all the way from Unionville each day to attend F.H.S., but she was so quiet we never got to know her as well as we would like to have. Her interest in music was advantageous to the school, for she helped so much by her cooperation to make our musical en¬ deavors successful. Franny always shows up at socials with the very latest dance steps, and done to perfection. May her musical talent bring her success and the aim of us all, happiness. Glee Club 1-2-3, Operetta 1-2, Interclass Basket Ball 1-2-4, Track 1, Hockey 1. GENEVIEVE HOLCOMB Lincoln Street Franklin, Mass. “Gen” " Happy as the day is long. " And now for Miss Giggles. Genevieve always had a smile for everyone. She was quite business-like or at least she always seemed to be in conference on the Horace Mann corner—saved paying rent she claimed. She rather agreed with the theory of evolution—she showed her stuff on the ropes in physical. We are sure that your smile and skill in physical will land you a job, which is one of the hardest things in the world to land, right now. HELEN AGATHA HOLMES 22 Reed Avenue Franklin, Mass. “Helen’ ’ " A stitch in time saves nine. " Helen is one of those friendly links in the chain of friendship of our class. Helen ' s smile just radiates her good spirit. Those dancing eyes, that nice complexion will surely help us always to remember her. If we think of dressmaking we should remember her well. Helen was always our class needle-craftsman. She won two prizes in it, so if any of you want any Paris tailoring done, in the future, just call up Helen. Glee Club 1-2-4, Track 1-2-4. 25 J RICHARD JACQUES West Central Street Franklin, Mass. “Dick” " Wanna buy a brush! " Introducing Dick Jacques, a quiet, unobtrusive fellow who, however, was quite capable of making noise when it was called for. Dick seemed to have a great deal of common sense, or shall we say will-power? For he was never seen in the company of the weaker sex. He didn’t par¬ ticipate in any outside activities but was active in class recitation. We do not know what Dick will do when he goes out into the big wide world, but anyway we can wish him luck, and hope he succeeds in selling his brush. HOMER C. JENEST 76 Dean Avenue Franklin, Mass. “Pete” “Jakie” " Nice things are wrapped in small packages. " Pete was small but he was certainly a big worry for all opposing basket ball teams, for during a game it seemed as though he were everywhere at once. Not only was he active in basket ball, but he proved himself a live wire when it came to entertainment, for he worked faithfully and worked well, and on several different committees.

YVONNE JOYAL 137 Peck Street Franklin, Mass. “Von” Serene and Re solute and Still and Calm and Self-possessed. “Watch those signals, Yvonne.” You can just bet Yvonne is on the job when there is a basket ball game in progress. Athletics are not all the things we like in her. We know she is a staunch friend, and that her calmness will always help us when we need it. In the classroom Yvonne is of the best. May she ever be of the best and so have those things she wants most in life. Varsity Basket Ball 1- 2-3-4, Commercial Club 3, Marshal 4. JOSEPH LANDRY Metcalf Street Franklin, Mass. “Joe” " I will be prepared and my chance will come. " When we speak of that alert business-like boy, we are referring to Joe. Always up on the latest news, especially that concerning politics, he was nearly as interesting to listen to as Lowell Thomas. People say there isn’t and never will be an honest politician. Well, if Joe ever decides to enter politics, which isn’t impossible, this statement will be all wrong. Many have wondered why Joe knows so much about shoestrings, corsets, paint, and such articles. The fact that he works in J. J. Newberry ' s store after school probably explains this. Keep up the good work, Joe, and you will be rewarded. Baseball 2, Marshall 1-2-3-4. 26 CHARLES LAVIOLETTE Oak Street Franklin, Mass. " Charlie” " Music’s Slave " Music is Charlie’s talent. His skill in playing the clarinet and saxo¬ phone, and in singing, has made him invaluable as a member of the band and orchestra. The jazz band of which he is a member played at many school socials and was liked and appreciated by all the students. Charlie also has a sense of humor which was probably more applauded by the students than by the teachers. Charlie’s interest in music urged him to continue in that line. Good luck, Charles.

" Ever since entering our class Dorothy has been one of our most popu¬ lar and most respected girls. She was always glad to take part in any class activity, which made her very busy. Studying seemed to come natural to Dot, so she found it quite easy to do her class work and get good marks. Although her day’s program was usually a full one, she always seemed to find time for a certain young man in the class. In case you don’t know already, it was our presiding officer. What a lucky fellow he is. As long as Dot lives up to her noble Franklin High record, she will master any obstacle she may meet in future days, and her life will be a worth while one.

If you are walking down a corridor in F.H.S. and you hear a loud guffaw, then Ray is somewhere within the radius of a mile or so. Ray is one of the few who stuck to math for four years, but not in vain. He was another valuable member of the band, and contributed much to its success. Also he was in the orchestra, and in that organization he labored diligently under Mr. Webber ' s direction for four years. Ray is the type of person who will consider both sides of the question carefully before he sets forth his viewpoints. Because of this fact and because of his broadmindedness, we are sure he will succeed.

You find her always bubbling over with joy. Not only is she disconcertingly pretty, but she is exceptionally bright—a very rare combination. Dora takes an exceedingly long time to “catch on” when someone tells a joke, but when she does, that person is rewarded by her merry laugh. Dora took many things seriously, but it was the sunny side of her nature that drew the hearts of everyone toward her. We don’t know what you intend to do in the future, Dora, but whatever it is, we feel sure you will succeed.

' ' John was one of the more popular fellows of our class (especially with the girls). While in the Franklin High School he became well acquainted with its stage. His acting of the many different characters will long be remembered by all. Johnnie is also good-natured and enjoys humor. Remember how well Johnnie always got along with his teachers, especially Doc? John cannot decide whether to continue as an actor or take up areonautical engineering. Anyway whichever course you take, Johnnie, we wish you success. President Dramatic Club 4, Football 3 4, Marshal 1-2-3-4, Junior Prom Committee, Interclass Basket Ball.

" “Beautiful Girl, you’re a lovely picture.” That ' s one song that applies to Ruth and it certainly is appropriate. Everything she did was gracefully and charmingly done. She seemed rather reserved out¬ wardly, but she was very friendly and amusing when one really knew her. Her love for the beautiful was shown in the pictures she drew and in the inspiring music she played. Remember how her music made us float on clouds of ecstasy and contentment? When you are acclaimed “America’s Greatest Pianist,” please don’t forget us, Ruth.

With the proper setting she would make an ideal " Peg o’ my heart.” She would be privileged to be that, both by her heritage and her good looks. But don’t let us ramble like a traveling salesman. This is the real stuff—Good luck, Agnes, but take this bit of warning—no using the eyes on the boss.

GEORGE MARTIN Union Street Franklin, Mass. “Georgie’ ’ ‘‘For he ' s a jolly good fellow. " Quite an honor to be considered the boy with the softest voice. He can hardly ever be heard in class, but just you listen to his lusty shout after school is over. George would make a fine doctor, with his sooth¬ ing voice, cheering the sick patient to get better. George was quiet— at times, especially in Chemistry, for he was usually the subject of Doc’s wisecracks. We are sure George will be successful, for he has certain traits of character which aid greatly in obtaining success. JOHN MARTIN East Central Street Franklin, Mass. “Johnnie” Power to start and power to finish. “An all-around athlete and a regular fellow” describes Johnnie perfectly. When a hit meant the game, when a yard was needed for a touchdown, or when a long shot would break the tie, Johnnie was there to do it. Yes, he certainly is a “Johnnie on the spot.” Although he was always busy in sports he found time to keep up in his studies, which is saying a great deal. We wouldn’t be at all surprised to see John playing basket ball, football, or baseball for some well-known college.

Maybe they like to rumple those golden locks. Anyhow Francis does all he does well and that makes us like him all the more. Francis hasn’t informed anyone what he wants to be, but we’ll join his other friends in saying “Good luck.” 29 a VINCENTINA MOLINARO 56 Ruggles Street Franklin, Mass. “ Vin’ ’ “ Quiet , reserved, and studious .” Vincentina was one of the quiet, shy girls in our class but proved the old saying, " Speech is silver—Silence is gold.” She was loved by all her classmates and teachers. Many teachers, no doubt, wish there were more like her. She did not talk much in class, but absorbed everything that was said and never failed to recite when called on. Vincentina took a business course and will certainly be a valuable addition to any office. We wish you great success, Vincentina, in your chosen work. Commercial Club 3.

She surely will be a valuable addition to any office if she takes up that work. Here’s to your success for the coming years, " Charlie, " and may you find everything in later life as humorous as you did in High School. DOMENICK MUCCIARONE North Park Street Franklin, Mass. " Dom” It’s too bad Dom hadn’t played football his first three years, for he certainly showed us this year that he was a football player. Dom was as good a scholar as he was ball player.

But then, why shouldn’t she smile, with those tantalizing dimples? Dot came from the good old state of Maine and it certainly was ou r gain and Maine ' s loss when she favored us with her happy-go-lucky self. Did you ever hear Dot give an oral composition that didn’t make you laugh? Remember all those anecdotes she told about Maine farmers? Dot’s ambition is to make a name for herself in the business world and she certainly will—with her personality and brightness. We’re all waiting for you to make good, Dottie.

We like to watch her, too, especially when she plays basket ball. Gert likes that game and she certainly believes in using energy with a capital E when she plays. In fact, she does her best in all she does. Gert isn’t sure just what she wants to be, but we hear that office work is her line. Here’s for a lot more energy, Gert. Everyone needs it in that vocation.

She is rather quiet in class, but we know she is full of pep and ready to go when there is anything doing. Anna is inseparable from her friends and they have good times together. You can just bet that Anna has ideas for the future, but she won’t tell us what they are. We wish her luck, anyway, and hope we can see her in the future and see what she is doing. WILLIAM OELTJEN 262 East Central Street Franklin, Mass. “Bill” “I love my teachers, but, you know. My fun must have a little show. A better entertainer could not be found than Bill, no, not even if you searched the world over. If he had but lived in the good old days when kings asked for jesters and there were no radios, Bill would have made a most delightful frolicsome clown of court. That’s a reminder, he would be a topping good radio comedian. He actually resembles El Brendel of the movies. Bill has a weakness for the “Honey of Marvin Avenue,” but we are sure that will not interfere with his success. Good luck, Bill.

Carolyn was not heard so much about, but to those girls taking the business course, she was well known and liked. She was a very good student in the business course. She is a very ambitious girl who is not afraid of work. She worked in the Sentinel Press, and also found time to do her school work. She likes sports and all outdoor activities, and she combines work and play in a way that makes both a pleasure. Carolyn will surely be a success in whatever she undertakes.

He gained many friends while in the F.H.S. and he will continue to do so. Ed played basket ball during his four years in high school, this being his favorite sport. He also sup¬ ported other school activities, such as socials, plays, etc. He has fol¬ lowed the college course and this will allow him to further his education if he wishes. He is as yet undecided as to what his future will be, but we wish him the best of luck. Dramatic Club 4, Basket Ball 1-2—3-4.

She was constantly springing jokes on all of us and made her classmates burst into gales of laughter almost daily with her witty remarks. Mary took a commercial course in high school. We can’t see her as a prim secretary, can you? We know she will have to tell her employer a joke, just as she did to us. We wish her all the luck in the world for a happy and a prosperous career.

Four years of knowing Ardis has been a pleasure—with her fine sense of humor which makes many a day bright.

Treasurer of Commercial Club 3, Interclass Basket Ball 1. HAROLD RICE West Central Street Franklin, Mass. “Ricey” Power to start and power to finish. ' ’ If there ever was a model boy, it’s Harold. He showed everyone that he knew his stuff in class, and on the gridiron he was simply a terror. His hearty good nature gained him the title of the best-natured boy in our class. Harold was a loyal supporter of Franklin High, especially her dances. When the music struck up a fast tempo, he could be seen doing one of his tricky steps with the greatest of ease. Promise you won’t tell a soul—now listen—Harold’s favorite name is Rita. We wonder why. Luck and success in whatever you do, Harold. Football 1-2-3 (Captain) 4, Track 1-2-3.

If you want to know who the ruling family was in England during any period, ask Louise, or if Cromwell’s reign is faint to you, consult Louise, for she certainly knows her history. As well as being a good scholar, Rick was always a very busy girl on the dance floor. When you crave good company, Rick is the girl. We can recom¬ ment her highly to fill this bill.

" Who is that blond good-natured girl who chums around with Ruth Wheeler so much? Why, that’s Helen. Yes, Helen is very sociable and this quality gets her in difficulties many times in class. This same quality wins Helen many friends, too, for everyone enjoys her winning smile and pleasant nature. Even though she never seemed to be exerting herself in class, she always managed to pass her subjects with a re¬ spectable mark. We know that Helen will be successful whatever her field may be, for a girl with her personality can’t be kept down. 33 j THEODORE ROMAN California Avenue South Bellingham, Mass. " Teddy” ‘ ‘A Model Student. Always had his home work done, was very quiet, never caused the teachers trouble. Thus we introduce Teddy. Some people are more unselfish than others; some people have more patience than others. These two virtues were clearly seen in Teddy, and for this reason he was well liked by everybody. He hopes to be a Doctor some day. We are sure he will succeed, for his personality has all that is called for in a Doctor’s. Teddy was another bashful young man who never bothered with the members of the opposite sex, and perhaps that is why his report card was labelled with a nice group of big fat A’s. PETER ROMETTI 27 Corbin Street Franklin, Mass. " Pete " " Edison” ‘ ‘A true genius in all senses of the word. Our " Edison, Jr. " deserves much credit for his ability to handle electricity like a veteran. For the last five years this has been Pete’s pastime, occupation, and joy. And his knowledge of the radio makes all the rest of us F.H.S. students feel very insignificant. During his four years here he has played a very important role in the affairs of the school, a role which was unknown to most of us—he has been stage helper and stage director. Now we know why the lighting effects have been carried out so well. Track 2, Freshman Acquaintance Party Committee 4, Stage Director 3-4, Marshal 2-3. ALBA ROVANI 95 Chestnut Street Franklin, Mass. " Al” " May” “The busy bee makes little noise.” Now, there’s a smart girl for you. Always did her homework, always recited when she was called upon, and was she businesslike? Ever watch her trip briskly from one class to another? Al never failed to treat everyone with her dazzling smile, and her lively speeches. She always lent a helping hand when one was needed. Judging from Al’s ability in shorthand, typing, and her efficiency in the office, we can well guess what her work is going to be. We know that she will make a charming secretary and will succeed in everything she undertakes. Commercial Club 3, Glee Club 1-2, Hockey Team 1, Operetta 1. SOPHIE RUSSOY Washington Street Franklin, Mass. ”Sweetness is a quality.” A girl who is indeed one of our brightest scholars. She came to us in her Sophomore year, and proved to be quite a valuable student. Her quiet way and unassuming manner belong to her own dear self. Maybe she is a little hard at first to get acquainted with, but that is because she does not make herself known. Once you know her, you have in¬ deed found a sincere friend. She is not sure of her vocation, but with her capable mind and steady nerve, she will surely make a success. Marshal 4, Junior Prom Committee. 34 RAYMOND ARTHUR SAMPSON 145 East Street Franklin, Mass. “Ray” “Bones” " Don ' t extend yourself, let nature do it. " A tall slim fellow who was quite capable of extracting laughs from his fellow classmates. Ray was a dreamy, sleepy lad, but he was al¬ ways ready to answer any question in class. To look at him you wouldn’t believe that he could play a big bass tuba, but just watch him in action. If it hadn’t been for Ray, the band’s time probably would not have been so even. Ray’s plans for the future are all made. He is going to M.I.T. and everyone of us wishes him success. Band 1-2-3-4, Football 2-3. WALTER SANDERSON Dean Avenue Franklin, Mass. “Sandy” " To me my mind a kingdom is. " Sandy (Is my face red!) always wore a smile, no matter how tough the going was. He was not only liked by all the fellows but also had a very strong attraction for those of the opposite sex. This probably explains his smile. Sandy as Editor-in-Chief of the Oskey cannot be overestimated. Sandy will surely succeed in his life’s work, if we may judge by his high school work.

" Scrooge and his pals were often to be seen over in Medway, but we’ll forgive him for that, considering the fact that he was such a loyal supporter of the school when he was in Franklin. We only wish that he had started sooner in sports, for in his last year at school he went out for three sports and did well in all of them. Scrooge never seemed to have had enough sleep, but that, too, can be blamed on Medway. We wish all the good luck there is to a good sport like Scrooge.

" Phil is known and well-liked by many. His interest lies in sports and those who know him well recognize his ability in them. He has been a good supporter of all activities and has played in the band and has been a marshal. Phil expresses his thoughts very frankly and once remarked that he had not yet found a girl in the Franklin High School worthy of his consideration. He has probably changed his mind since then. Phil expects to go to work after he graduates. Band 1, Football 3-4, Track 2, Marshal 2. 35 GENEVIEVE ELIZABETH SWEENEY 137 East Central Street Franklin, Mass. " Gen” " Good nature and good sense were her companions. " For four years Gen has been with us here in high school, as quiet as she was in grammer school. We like her for a companion, for she is always pleasant, and ready to help. Gen liked languages and even now we are sure she could quickly recite a French poem or two or even conjugate a verb or two. We don’t know what you want to be, Gen, but we can wish you the best of luck, anyway. WILLIAM ALLAN SYMMES Brook Street Franklin, Mass. " Bill " " Billie” " I will be prepared and my chance will come. " Bill was our main source of amusement during the four years we spent here at school. His dry wit and glorious sense of humor were exceeded only by his outstanding personality. His activities were many and varied, and he did more than his share towards the improve¬ ment of our school’s social life. We predict favorably in regard to Bill’s future, but then, once knowing him, who wouldn’t? Football 2, Baseball 2, Dramatics 4, Editorial Committee Oskey 4- Marshal 1-2-3-4, Interclass Track 1. ROCKY TAVALONE Wachussett Street Franklin, Mass. " Rocky” " Tav” " Large was his bounty and his soul sincere. " Rocky is another one of our classmates who was always in sports spotlight. In the class room one would take Rocky for a very quiet student but outside he was always the big noise of the party. No matter how hard or great the task may have been, Tav was willing to tackle it. (Remember that tackle Rocky made at North Attleboro.) The Blue and White will be minus a great all-around athlete as well as a noble fellow when Tav has graduated. Success and good luck in whatever you do, Rocky. Football 2-3-4, Baseball 2-3-4, Basket Ball 2-3-4. VINCENT THAYER Mendon Street Bellingham, Mass. " Vinny” " Sensible people find nothing useless. " For four years Vinny graced the halls of F.H.S., but one would never know it, for he was of the slow-moving, and quiet type. He didn’t participate in outside activities, but he was very active in class, he always answered a question regardless of right or wrong. Some people get all the breaks. Vinny took a trip to Washington a few weeks ago and enjoyed himself, while his poor classmates were left confined within their Alma Mater. Vincent’s quiet sincere manner will surely win for him success. Marshal 2-4. 36 § FRED TUTTLE ftsml Martin Avenue “Fred” Franklin, Mass. “Eat, drink, and be merry, for tomorrow we die. " Fred was one of the “wits” of the so called “wit table” in the Physics class. Many times was Doc ready to give up in despair because Fred became too witty. But he meant well and he was liked (even by the girls). Fred’s philosophy of life probably is “Eat, drink, and be merry, for tomorrow we die.” Fred plays the trumpet in the band, has played in a brass quartet, and also is in the school orchestra. He expects to become a naval officer and after graduation will take an exam for entering Annapolis. We wish Fred a “bon voyage!” Band 1-2-3-4, Orchestra 1-2, Interclass Basket Ball, Track. GEORGE VENTHAM Chestnut Street Franklin, Mass. “JlGGs” “The best is none too good for me. " George was known to his closest friends as Jiggs. His smile and good-natured way made him a very agreeable companion. He was not interested in any one special thing, but he enjoyed music as well as outdoor sports and his main topic of conversation was “speed”. George made good speed during his four years in high school and he would like to go on at a faster rate, by continuing his education. He has the best wishes of his fellow students. RUTH GRANT WHEELER 1122 West Central Street Franklin, Mass. “Ruthie” “Peggie” Those dancin g feet. Here she is, our one and only Ruthie Wheeler. Tall and slender, sweet and smiling Ruth, and how she can dance! None of those boys need want for a good partner while she is near. Ruth is one smart worker, too. All through school she has done wonders for her class, and has she made friends? We all like Ruth and hope and hope again that she’ll go far in whatever she does.

Many dances were made much more enjoyable by Art’s playing than they would have been otherwise. Likewise many classes were really quite pleasant because of his presence and his wisecracks. Art always stuck up for himself, but he was one of the few who could remain popular in spite of that fact. He was well liked by all of his classmates and teachers. Art may study to be an M.D. Our best wishes for his success go with him. Track 1-2-3, Marshal 4, Band 1-2-3-4, Orchestra 1-2-3-4. 37 VERA SEWELL Highland Street Franklin, Mass. “Vee” “A smile for all.” Probably one of the biggest reasons why Vera has so many friends is her out-spoken manner. She always gave her true opinion of persons and we admired her for this. Vera usually knew all the latest song hits, for she carried around a sheet of songs which she memorized. So with a song in her heart she found the sunny side of life and reflected it to her chums. At the school dances Vera was kept “on the jump,” for she was noted for her clever dancing. May your future be as full and as joyful, Vera, as you were for four years at Franklin High. HERBERT STEWART King Street Franklin, Mass. “Herb” “Serene he sits on other shores Than ours.” If you walked into some class (preferably English) and saw a tall, rugged, muscular fellow sitting there with a far away look in his eyes, you would be quite safe in saying it was Herb. Milton, Johnson, Burns, and the rest of the literati didn’t appeal to him, but when it came to giving oral reports, he was right there. But maybe Herb won’t need to know Milton, etc. in his life actions now, when a fire alarm is sounded. Who knows, perhaps some day Herb will captain the fire department of some large city. Football 4. 38 Class History We, the class of 1934, with 157 members, entered Franklin High School on September 7, 1930, after a long summer vacation. We had been eagerly waiting for the day on which we were to enter High School even though we were only to be the so-called Freshmen. During the first week, we were given books, pens, and pencils, and were told to take care of them, for we would not be given another pencil for one long month. How we ever entered class on time the first week is beyond me. Once after asking four or five seniors where room 102 was, we found we were on the wrong side of the building. A mad dash was made and we finally entered class a little late. After stammering for words to explain the delay we were glad to remain quiet for the rest of the period. Two weeks after our entrance the annual Freshmen Acquaintance Party was held. There was an exceptionally large number present, and when two of the upper classmen tried to find a quiet spot, they gave up in despair, for laughing, giggling Freshmen could be found everywhere. Finally we were told by a very disgusted Senior to read Emily Post. The Halloween Party was the second night out for the Freshmen. After par¬ ticipating in games, we decided the art of dancing must be tried. After one dance we came to the conclusion that dancing lessons were necessary. When we heard that we had the honor of presenting the Thanksgiving Assembly to the Seniors we were very much elated; for now we had a chance to show our talent. The week after Christmas, pupils could be seen rushing home immediately after school with a load of books under their arms. We soon learned the cause—“Mid- Year’s” were to be held shortly. This was our first experience with exams and we were eager to make a good showing. It was the upper classmen who inspired us to higher standing. After the week was over, we breathed a sign of relief. Now our first year at High was gradually drawing to a close. We had kept up an interest in our school activities, and had made a good showing in dramatics and athletics. It was a happy day for us when we could re-enter in the fall as Sophomores. We did not remain happy very long, for we began to feel very insignificant due to the fact that we could not do the cute things the Freshmen do, and could not follow the superior ways of the upper classmen. Thus we lacked the much longed-for at¬ tention. This year we took part in athletics. We were proud of the fact that “Johnny” Martin, a member of our class, was successful in making the first team in basket ball. A few girls had the envied opportunity of marching in the prom. The rest of us hoped to brighten the pages of school history during our Junior and Senior years. The term, “Jolly Juniors,” applied to us before we realized it. This year we were really going to do things! The following officers were elected: President, Julian Dickey; Vice-President, Grant MacMichael; Secretary, Dorothy Dowling; Treasurer, Dorothy Linfelt. 39 A club known as the Commercial Club was organized under the direction of Miss Peterson. They spent many enjoyable afternoons together. Educational and interesting talks were given by outside speakers. The outstanding event during the year was the presentation of a three-act comedy, “What Happened to Judy.’’ An outing at Lake Pearl wound up the general activities for the year. The class rings were a subject for much discussion this year. After many argu¬ ments it was voted to purchase rings during our Junior year. The following com¬ mittee was elected, Ruth Wheeler, Charlotte Mackenzie, John Martin. Many members could be seen practicing after school, for baseball, basket ball, and football. We were eager to make a good showing this year. Great headway was made in dramatics this year. The play, “New Brooms,’’ was presented in June. Many leading parts were taken by members of our class. The event which we had looked forward to for three years was finally here— The Junior Prom. The decorations representing a Pirates’ Den were very colorful and beautiful. The Prom proved to be an outstanding event both socially and finan¬ cially and without any exception was the best ever held in the history of the school. We entered our fourth year at High School very sophisticated and superior Seniors. From what had been a large class in our Freshmen year we had shrunk to only 85 members. The class officers elected were: President, Grant MacMichael; Vice-President, Arthur Curtis; Secretary, Dorothy Dowling; Treasurer, Norma Longton. The ability of our class in athletics certainly predicts that many members will become coaches in football, basket ball, and baseball. The girls’ basket ball team had a very successful season, the success being due to the splendid coaching of Miss Beane and the cooperation of each member of the team. At the annual exhibition which took place on April 10, the Girls’ Varsity Basket Ball team was presented with sweaters. Great effort has been made on the part of our Editor-in-Chief, Walter Sanderson, and his competent staff to make this year book an outstanding success. With the final preparations of the year book and the last minute plans of Junior Prom; we find the few remaining happy days at High School rapidly drawing to a close. Commencement Week is a busy one for us all, and with so many activities, we find ourselves going around in a daze. When we finally come to, we shall find our¬ selves graduated and Alumni of Franklin High. We, the graduating class of 1934, are ready to meet each issue in life fairly and squarely. Ship ahoy, classmates, Bon voyage! May the voyage through life be one of clear sailing with just enough squalls to make us appreciate fair weather. 40 Class Prophecy Althea Allen. Nursemaid.

John Maconi 48 UNDERGRADUATES THE JUNIOR CLASS i THE SOPHOMORE CLASS Autograph Autographs THE BAND The Band The possibilities of organizing a band in Franklin High School was first thought of eight years ago by Mr. Patty. The success of such an organization was at first doubtful, but under the fine leadership of Mr. Patty, the band has steadily increased in size and in its ability to produce good music, until now we can boast a band as good as can be found in any neighboring high school. This band has one very good quality, it is self-supporting; it does not depend on any outside source for its maintenance. This year the membership of the band was the lowest in its history, there being only forty-eight members. However, this decline in number did not in any way interfere with its marked ability for putting on good concerts. The boys in the band got new hats this year, which added greatly to their ap¬ pearance. Following are some of the band’s activities for the past year. Gave band concerts on the Common. Played for three nights at the Italians’ Field Day. Played on Armistice Day at Medway. Played for all home football games. Played for assemblies at school. The members held their ever-popular “Band Banquet.’’ The band will play for Class Day. 57 THE ORCHESTRA Orchestra Among the foremost of Franklin High organizations is the orchestra. This institution has been the pride and pleasure of the school for many years and has even raised its standards this past year. Besides playing for the school activities, it has accepted many outside requests to play at various social functions. The Freshmen Acquaintance Party saw the first appearance of the orchestra this year. It was the first time the orchestra had ever played for this first social event of the school year, due to the fact that there is not sufficient time for organization or rehearsals beforehand. By the time of the Halloween Party, the orchestra was fully prepared for its second performance. In December the Baptist Church asked the orchestra to play for a “Seth Parker Githerin’’ that they were sponsoring. Not only was the orchestra enjoyed at this affair, but it in turn enjoyed the “Githerin.” Aside from the musical benefits derived from membership in the orchestra, the opportunity for attending other social functions is declared to be an interesting asset. This again applied to the illustrated lecture of Rev. Cornelius Greenway, an auto- graphed-photograph collector and a former Franklinite, at which the orchestra played in response to the request of the American Legion of the town. In April the orchestra played for the two evening performances of a musical comedy entitled “Listen to Me” which was sponsored by the Fern Chapter of the Eastern Star. Throughout the year there have been several assemblies for which the orchestra played. In the earlier part of the year, one of these assemblies was an orchestra con¬ cert for the Freshmen—sort of an introduction, for them, to one of the high-lights of their school. Another concert assembly was presented before the entire school after the May Concert. The Orchestra Concert in May is an event looked forward to by many and they were not disappointed this year. Forging speedily ahead, the orchestra of this year has surpassed all previous records and standards. Some of the most difficult of orchestral compositions were mastered and played feelingly. The most momentous and unusual event in the orchestra year, however, occurred when it journeyed to Ford Hall, Boston, and there played before the Norfolk County Teacher’s Convention. Never before in the history of the school has such an honor been conferred and the occasion was not lost upon either the orchestra or the school as a whole; nor need it be, for the orchestra’s performance more than fulfilled all possible requirements or expectations. Such success could not be possible, however, without the cooperation of both orchestra members and director. Rehearsals are faithfully attended. Both orchestra members and outsiders well realize the value of Mr. Webber’s untiring efforts as Director, and to him is due a great deal of the credit. 59 0 Dramatic Club Through the years “Doc” Fraser has put on many plays. This year a club known as the “Franklin High School Dramatic Club” was formed in November of 1933- This club, although having officers, was under “Doc’s” direction and supervision. All those interested in dramatics joined the club, over one hundred students signing the constitution. These students represented the senior, junior, sophomore, and freshman classes. Meetings were held once every month. At each of these meetings an interesting program was presented, and very much enjoyed by all of the members. Officers were elected by ballot and the results of this election were: president, John Maconi; vice-president, Frank Maconi; secretary, Ruth Mackenzie; and treasurer, Dora MacFarlane. It was decided that dues, amounting to fifty cents a year, should be paid by each member. The object of the club was: 1. To promote culture through the production of high class enter¬ tainment, and to encourage literary attainment. 2. To further dramatics in the minds of the students. 3. To study the development of the theatre and its influence upon civilization. 4. To promote school spirit and endeavor to advance the welfare of the Franklin High School. At the first meeting a committee was elected to draw up the constitution and by-laws of the club. This was done in excellent style and presented to the club at the next meeting, which was the first regular meeting, and was accepted. At this first regular meeting, after the adoption of the constitution, a very interesting pro¬ gram was put on, consisting of music by some members and two one-act dramas, namely, “Highness” and “Bishop’s Candlesticks.” Both of these plays were of a serious type. As other meetings were held, more one-act plays were staged, besides other kinds of entertainment. “A Friend of the Family,” a swift-moving comedy was indeed funny and all who partook in it portrayed their parts very well. Even the kittens in the basket were dressed in their best behavior clothes. Charades were acted out at one of these monthly meetings. Some of them were quite difficult to guess, but a few of the ultra smart members showed their signs of intelligence by giving the answers. At this meeting “Doc” announced that a magi¬ cian had offered his services to perform before such an interesting group. Who should the magician turn out to be, but our dear old “Doc.” Aha, but here’s a secret— mustn’t tell that something went wrong, that even the magic was bewitched and wouldn’t act right. Nevertheless the feat was thoroughly enjoyed by all. After “Doc’s” magic, the owners of dancing feet danced a few steps to some lively tunes. At another meeting, a mock wedding was presented. This brought laug hs so hard that the building did quake with fear. It was highly entertaining because of its originality. Such oddities as a cup-cake for the wedding cake, the groom being very much shorter than his tall, plump bride, and others just as funny brought many laughs. After the ceremony a reception was held and refreshments were served. This year was but a start in this work. Better luck next year, “Doc.” 61 GirTs Glee Club The Girl’s Glee Club, with a membership of about thirty students, was organized this year for the first time, under the direction of Miss Dorothy M. Anderson. Meet¬ ings and rehearsals have been held in the auditorium every Tuesday and Thursday afternoons after school. The club gave two very enjoyable assemblies and sang on many other occasions. The music practiced has been largely the more popular of classical numbers, including such favorites as “TheRosary,” “The Swan,” “O Belle Nuit” from “Tales of Hoffman,” and “Sylvia.” A delightful evening’s entertainment in the form of a “Radio Broadcast from F.H.S.” was enjoyed by the club members and guests at its one social function of the year.

The prospects for a successful season looked dark at the beginning; however, Coach Bart McDonough is to be complimented on the way in which he rounded the team into shape. The first team Franklin met on the field was Medway. Now Medway has always been more or less a big worry for the Franklin team, but this year the boys had no trouble at all in trimming Medway 14-0. Even so, the team was not without its weak-spots. However, during the next week Coach McDonough smoothed out the rough spots, and did a very good job of it, for the next Saturday Canton came to town, and for the first time in the history the of school Franklin beat Canton. In fact, the boys gave Canton a trimming, for the game ended with the score standing at 27-6. They have made a fine start. Will they keep it up? Let’s go to Northbridge. There we see our boys lined up against a peppy, and a highly rated team. But Frank¬ lin got the jump in the first quarter and led throughout the game, the final score being, Franklin 13, and Northbridge 2. The next week the boys practiced hard, for the big game of the season was coming—North Attleboro. Tfie game was widely advertised and approximately one thousand fans crowded the bleachers, and there they watched the two teams battle very closely in a game of good clean football, until Winfield Scott, Franklin’s plunging fullback broke loose and outran North’s entire backfield for sixty-five yards and a touchdown. The try for the extra point was successful and the game ended with Franklin on the large end of a 14-6 score. It was in this game that Rocky Tave- lone, Franklin halfback, made his spectacular tackle which put him out for several hours. This year Franklin added two new opponents to its list, namely, Northbridge and Wellesley. Now Wellesley had so far a very successful season, but so had Frank¬ lin, and on the next Saturday the two teams were to meet. Before the game a great deal of “ballyhoo” was put into the various newspapers about the “crack team” Wellesley High had produced. They had their picture in the paper and several sports writers picked them to win. The game was played, and as predicted, the Wellesley team won, which was due largely to the publicity they had received, for it had a tendency to slow up the Franklin boys, and they were not quite sure of themselves. There were times when Franklin threatened Wellesley’s goal, but they lacked the extra punch that was needed to put over a touchdown. Losing to Wellesley seemed to dishearten the boys, for the following week they went down to defeat in front of a very large, and hard-running Stoughton team. The locals played good football, but were outweighed from twenty to fifty pounds per man. They would not have scored at all had it not been for the speedy broken- field running of Charlie Marchand, Freshman fullback. The final score was 25-7- The following Saturday saw Franklin back a little nearer its winning brand of football when they journeyed to Walpole. After displaying a very fine brand of clean football, and after practically having the game on ice, they had it suddenly snatched from them late in the last period, when Walpole made one last desperate drive down the field which ended in a touchdown. The try for point was just barely successful; and the game ended with the score 7-6 in favor of Walpole. A large majority of the veterans will be lost to the team by graduation, but Coach McDonough’s ability to build a successful team from very little material has been proved, and another successful season next year is assured. 65 BOYS’ BASKET BALL TEAM 0 Boys Basket Ball A good season was looked forward to by the team because of the number of veterans from the preceding year. In the first game against Northbridge, the team lived up to its expectations, although Northbridge, which was considered one of the best teams around, won by a few points. At this time the team lost the services of Coach Hilbert. His leaving was re¬ gretted by the whole school as well as by the basket ball team. Mr. McDonough, the football and baseball coach, stepped in and took hold of the basket ball team. The next five games played were won. Blackstone was an easy victim and Attleboro was equally easy. The team then went down to North Attleboro and in a very close game won by one point. But North Attleboro reversed this decision when they came to Franklin. Rockland was next taken into camp and Walpole was also defeated. Owing to the loss of two of the best players and to hard luck, the remainder of the season was not so successful as the first part. The team went down to Walpole and in a very close game defeated them for the second time by a very close score. In the game at Rockland the team was on its way to another victory when Rockland came from behind and defeated Franklin by one point. This seemed to discourage the players, and defeat was followed by defeat. Stoughton, with an unusually strong team, twice defeated Franklin. Attleboro also reversed the tables by winning the second game. In Woonsocket the team again met with defeat. The team returned to form in the final game with Woonsocket and played them to a standstill until the last few minutes of the game when Woonsocket surged ahead and won by a few points. Although the final standing was six wins against eight losses, the team really deserved a better record. Under the coaching of Mr. McDonough the team played hard and clean basket ball. A successful season is looked forward to next year. Johnnie Martin—Johnnie, who was captain, starred in all the games. Although he played guard, he was usually the high scorer. He will be lost to the team by graduation. Pete Jenest—Pete played forward and his great eye for the basket scored many points for Franklin High. He will also be lost by graduation. Charlie Korff—Charlie’s height and eye for the basket made him a valuable member to the team as a forward. Charlie remains in high school for another season of basket ball. “Tiny” Jim Boucher—Jim’s great height made him a valuable center. It also gave him an advantage under the basket. Jim will return next year and again stand above all. Rocky Tavelone—Rocky at guard played a hard and fast game. He always stopped his opponents when they went on a scoring spree. Rocky will be lost to the team by graduation. Ed Pare—Ed also played a good, clean game at guard. He always went in and gave his best for the team. This was Ed’s last year on the team. Vernon Anderson—The tallest member of the team. The assistance he gave the team cannot be overestimated. The team will suffer his loss by graduation. 67 i GIRLS’ BASKET BALL TEAM Girls 7 Basket Ball Practice for the girls’ basket ball team was started directly after the Thanks¬ giving vacation, under the coaching of Miss Alice Beane. “Beanie” was new at High School this year and brought in her excellent methods of coaching. At Christ¬ mas time the first squad was formed and consisted of Captain Norma Longton, forward, Ruth Mackenzie, forward, Rita Ducharme, forward; Wilma Eida, side- center, and Rose Nelson, jump-center; Louise Rickard, guard, Althea Allen, guard, Barbara Gowing, guard, Grace Pendleton, guard. Charlotte Mackenzie was elected manager. Constant drilling and practice brought the team into shape for their first game. Holliston came to Franklin and was easily defeated, Franklin piling up the largest score of their season. The Franklin seconds also had an overwhelming victory. The next game was with Dean Academy. This game is a tradition, and a strong feel¬ ing of good-natured rivalry exists between the two teams. This proved to be a hard, fast game, but Franklin was again victorious by another large score. After this game there was a great deal of hard practice in preparation for the game with Foxboro. For many years Foxboro has been Franklin’s hardest adversary. The game proved no exception to that rule and in the first half of the game it looked as if Foxboro would win easily. In the last half the Franklin girls began to fight and pulled the score up. However, Fo xboro had too big a start, and Franklin re¬ ceived its first defeat by only three points. The next game was with Wrentham at Franklin. It was a good game and again Franklin won. On a very poor floor the girls received their second defeat at the hands of Medway. Dean Academy was again played and defeated. Millis was defeated by a large score. A close, interesting game was played at Wrentham, and Franklin was victorious despite all of Wrentham’s efforts. Franklin went to Foxboro, smarting under their defeat, and determined to win. However, the combination of a strange floor and the excellent playing on Foxboro’s part was too much and Franklin was beaten. At the Medway return game it seemed as if Franklin would win, but Medway pulled into the lead to win by two points. The final game of the season was played with Millis, who was easily defeated. The second team played an undefeated season and deserves commendation. At the physical exhibition the senior girls on the first team received white sweaters. The underclassmen on the first team got letters, while the second team received numerals. 69 THE BASEBALL TEAM Baseball Again Coach McDonough has built up a good scrappy team from a rather inex¬ perienced squad. When practice began, things didn’t look any too bright, for six of ast year’s regulars had either graduated or left school, leaving the whole infield deserted and one outfield berth open. By switching around the players so as to get as much strength as possible into the lineup, the coach had everyone hustling, either in the hope of getting a regular berth or trying to hold on to one. With but three regulars left for a nucleus, Korff, Tavalone, and Martin, Mr. McDonough seems to have found a smart fighting team if not a brilliant one. When this book went to the press, only one game had been played so we cannot comment on the team’s record for the season. The one game that was played with Medway was won quite easily by the Blue and White with Korff working brilliantly on the mound. At every stage of the game he was in control of the situation, especially during the last two innings in which he struck out four of the six batters to face him. Unless something unusual happens to Korff’s trusty left arm, Franklin High may expect good pitching during the re¬ mainder of the season. Another high spot of the opening game was the hard hitting of the Franklin boys. Sasta, Tavalone, and Korff kept Franklin in the lead throughout the whole nine innings. Although there were a few errors sprinkled through the game the fielding was good and in some places looked immense. Capt. Johnny Martin, our nimble-footed center fielder, showed that he hasn’t forgotten how to play ball over the winter when he robbed three Medway batters of hits. No opposing batter will fatten his batting average by hitting in the direction of Johnny, for he seems to fairly fly over the ground and holds on to the ball as though there was glue in his glove. Due to nervousness on the part of the new infielders there were errors com¬ mitted. This was overlooked, however, for errors are expected in the first game, especially when some of the players are inexperienced and unfamiliar with their positions as was the case in the Medway game. Charles Marchand, a freshman, looks very good at catch. He is doing very well receiving Korff’s slants and he will have plenty of time to improve, for he has three years yet at Franklin High. Joe Sasta at first, a left hander, is a very sweet fielder as well as a heavy sticker. Joe digs them out of the dirt, stretches for them, and gets them in the air like an oldtimer. He is a natural pill handler and will help our team greatly. There is still a hot fight for the keystone sack between Galuza and Marchand. They are so evenly matched that the coach alternate s them in practise and did so in the first game. Marchand possesses a beautiful throwing arm and the ability to stop the hardest of grounders as well as to hit smartly. Galuza is the type that can cover a great deal of ground and this is his greatest advantage over Marchand. Shortstop is well-played by Henry Kernon, a boy that looks natural on the baseball diamond. Although not a very heavy hitter Henry makes up for this with his steady fielding and general good knowledge of the game. At the hot corner, Delfino struts his stuff in good style. He hits well in the pinches and does very well in the field. The outfield is nicely covered by Tavalone, Martin, and Scott. Martin is easily the most brilliant fielder of the trio, but the batting laurels go to Tavalone. Scott covers his position well and should be a great help when the team opposes a right handed pitcher, Scott being a left handed batter. With an eager group of subs ready to fill in, the team should go good against any opponent. 71 Autographs J 73 IT PAYS TO CURIOSITY SHOP ADVERTISE BUSINESS COURSES for Young Men — Business Administration and Accounting Courses, as preparation for sales, credit, financial, office management and account¬ ing positions.
