FRAZER who has given so willingly and unselfishly of his time and efifort that our scholastic and social undertakings be successful, who ever cheered us with his infallible and in¬ imitable quips and jokes, and who has kept foremost in our minds a sense of honor and independence, we, the class of 1935, dedicate this, our “Oskey,” to express our apprecia¬ tion and acknowledge with sincere grati¬ tude the assistance he has rendered us during our four happy years at F. H. S., and we take this opportunity to proclaim him one of the grandest members of the faculty. cPCrthur C W.

Peterson Died April 25, 1935 Educated at Rockport High School Salem Teachers College Boston University Member of Franklin High School Faculty Sept. 1929 — April 1935 friend. - teacher As a possessor of unusual scholarship, superior ability, unexpected wit and humor, and a rare, beautiful character, she commanded respect, love, and esteem. Hers was the devotion of adoring pupils whom she inspired and urged ever onward with friendly advice, and valuable philosophy. ’Though she is gone from our midst, the memory of her presence is ever felt — her charm, her zeal, her nobleness will always live and be cherished in the hearts of those who knew her. “And too fond of the right to pursue the expedient SMITH W. AMES Science and Biology The perseverance of a Koch and the abounding enthusiasm of a Pasteur combined with his own amiable personality have carried Mr. Ames out on top through a trying first year at F. H. S. DOROTHY M. ANDERSON History—Commercial Geography—Law and Economics Miss Anderson continues to do her share in teaching the students, as well as establishing a Glee Club of which our school can be proud. ALICE L. BEANE Physical Beanie’s pep and initiative have certainly made her well- liked by all the girls who have had her for gym and by those whom she has coached in basketball. PRISCILLA BULLUKIAN Shorthand — Typing—Business Practice — Comm. Geography Her willingness to help the interested and the curious to¬ gether with her dependable, even temperament, makes Miss Bullukian a favorite teacher. Page Ten GEORGE COLBERT Athletics Who said the " Coach ' ' couldn ' t drive a car? Ask him; he’ll tell you all about it. Mr. Colbert came to us in our Senior year, and his excellent work certainly made our sports success¬ ful. HELEN M. CROWLEY English — History-—French Hers, the smile that wins the hearts of all in both Horace Mann and High School. The students in Horace Mann were indeed fortunate in having as teacher so charming a person as Miss Crowley. JAMES J. DOHERTY Mathematics Math sprinkled with plenty of wit and humor has been found very easy of digestion by those who have taken Mr. Doherty’s courses. This year " Jim” started a hockey team which showed great promise both out-of-town and on our own improvised rink. CHARLES F. FRAZER Sub-Master—Sciences Doc is the teacher who has helped us to enjoy life in class and out, not only by what he says but also by what he does, i.e., his well-aimed jokes and his excellent direction in dra¬ matics. Page Eleven High School would be deficient without Homemaking, and after having Miss Hathaway with us this year, we think Home¬ making would be deficient without her. HOWARD LAUNDRY Athletics Mr. Laundry, the young man who was responsible for the excellent physical exhibition, is acclaimed a pal by all the boys who pay him this homely tribute, “A regular fellow, he’s great.” MARION E LAWRENCE French Her congenial manner and radiant smile have accomplished much in conveying to her students an excellent interpretation of the French language. MARION LITTLEFIELD Latin As a charming and friendly person who inspires and en¬ courages, Miss Littlefield has won the deep admiration and re¬ spect of all her students, who all eventually appreciate the value of her teachings. Page Twelve JOHN F. RODGERS Manual Training Mr. Rodgers gives the impression of being very reserved, but those who have had the pleasure of being in his classes know the humor that underlies his smile. We hail him as a fine teacher! AGNES SHEEHAN English-History One of the best-natured teachers in our school, she has a flashing smile which is known to all. Even under the most trying circumstances she always keeps her temper, as all her pupils will testify. ELLEN E. SHEPARD History Who can withstand her gracious ways? Who d want to? We all love Miss Shepard for her humor and understanding. What is generally considered a dull subject becomes a delight under her guidance. E. FRANCES WASHBURN English Miss Washburn has succeeded by her friendly manner of teaching, in making English one of the most enjoyable sub¬ jects. Page Thirteen § ALICE WIGGIN English Among the fibers that form her web of character are found sincere affection, profound understanding, and infinite knowl¬ edge. Miss Wiggin leaves with us not only knowledge and appreciation of literature, but also sound principles and view¬ points. MRS. IRENE K. WIGHT Drawing It is no wonder that an individual with so attractive a per¬ sonality and so effective instruction has an enthusiastic recog¬ nition and following.

" CLASS FLOWER Gardenia CLASS MARSHAL Guy Emerson Page Fifteen c Acknowledgments £7 0E, THE EDITORS, take this space to thank all those who gave so gen- erously and willingly of their time and ability to make possible this, the 1935 “Oskey.” The editorial committee has our appreciation for the satisfying way in which they did the actual work of writing. We are grate¬ ful to the advertising and social committees for their very successful financ¬ ing of this year book. To the art committee for their labors, and to the girls who cheerfully and untiringly typed the work of the editorial committee, we proffer more thanks. We wish to thank, above all, Miss Wiggin, for the kind and judicial help she has given us in advising and correcting. To all these and to any others who contributed in any way to our year book we extend our sincere appreciation.

Bartelloni Page Seventeen RAY PARMENTER 466 King Street Franklin, Mass. “Of soul sincere, In action faithful, and in honor clear.” The class of ’3 5 considers itself fortunate to have at its head a boy like Ray, capable, willing, and possessed of initiative. Ray, a most popular member of the class, has two very dis¬ tinguishing characteristics, a head of hair, decidedly on the sunny side, and a disposition as even and serene as his grin. Ray ' s headed for Mass. State and chemistry along which line he always excelled in High School. Marshal 1-2-3-4, Dramatics 3-4. Senior Class President, Ring Committee 3, Prom. Com. 3, Vice Pres, of Junior Class, Finance Committee " Oskey.” RUSSELL BELKNAP 255 Union Street Franklin, Mass. “Blondie” “When most I wink, then do mine eyes best see.” It ' s the combination of brawn and the art of flattering the Weaker sex that has made " Blondie” the fair-haired class fa¬ vorite. Given the accoutrements of a football or hockey uniform Russell has always looked pretty formidable to the other team. Franklin High loses a fine athlete when Russell graduates, but some college, as yet undecided upon, will gain one. Football 2-3-4, Hockey 4, Editorial Committee for “Oskey” 4, Prom. Committee 3, Dramatics 4, Ring Committee 3, Mar¬ shal 3-4, Vice President of Senior Class, Football Captain 4. LAURA MARTELLO 17 Howard Street Franklin, Mass. “Laura” “Grace was in all her steps; In every gesture dignity and love.” Who doesn’t know Laura, the most capable secretary in the class? Laura is certainly a popular member of our class. She wrote the words to the “School Song” in her senior year. Typing and shorthand agree with Laura so well, that Busi¬ ness is to be her vocation, and we know she will make good in whatever she undertakes. We all wish her plenty of luck and happiness, but most of all, success. Class Secretary 3-4, Blue and White 4, Editorial Commit¬ tee “Oskey” 4, Junior Prom Committee 3, Basketball 1-2, Freshman Acquaintance Party 4. IRENE McKENNA West Central Street Franklin, Mass. “Mack” “Legs” “Her eyes as stars of twilight fair; Like twilight’s too, her dusky hair.” The gayest of the gay! Whenever there’s any fun going on, you’ll find Irene in the midst of it, just rarin ' to go! Never a dull moment when she’s around, particularly when she feels the urge to lift her voice in song, which is often. “Mack” has been of great assistance to the varsity basketball squad and to the Glee Club during her high school career. Judging from her capable fulfillment of the position of Senior Class treasurer and staff member of this year ' s “Blue and White,” Irene will be a model business woman. Senior Class Treasurer, Editorial Committee “Oskey” 4. Basketball 1-2-3-4, Glee Club 3-4, Junior Prom 3, Blue and White 4. Page Eighteen WOODROW ABBOTT 136 School Street Franklin, Mass. “Woodie” “He relished a joke and rejoiced in a pun.” Woodrow was well-liked by all who knew him in High School. He surely knew how to manage the various sports. He made an extremely good Co-Captain of the basketball team. Not only was he a fine looking fellow but full of fun. Woodie was one of the school’s best marshals. When com¬ mittees were chosen he was usually on one of them and we all enjoyed working with him. We wish the best of luck to Wood- row whatever his future may be. Marshal 1-2-3-4, Hallowe ' en Party Committee 4, Baseball Manager 1-2-3-4, Football Manager 3-4, Football Assistant Manager 1-2, Freshman Acquaintance Party 4, Editorial Com¬ mittee " Oskey” 4, Basketball 1-2-3, Co-captain Basketball 4, Junior Prom Committee 3. ROSE ACQUASALIENTE Paine Street South Bellingham, Mass. “Aloof, and yet a spirit grand.” Although Rose entered our ranks in her junior year, it wasn’t long before she gathered a large circle of friends. Her striking individuality captured the hearts of her classmates. Once ad¬ justed to our school routine she ranked high in scholastic at¬ tainments. Her oral compositions made us wonder “That one small head could carry all she knew.” Candid, unbiased, studious, and one who recognized the more excellent things of life, she will always be remembered. Year Book Committee 4, Cap and Gown Committee 4. WALDO ARNOLD 206 Maple Street Franklin, Mass. “Peace is rarely denied to the peaceful.” Waldo is one of those exceedingly tranquil boys, possessing the rare gift for maintaining silence. For all his reticence in this line, there are baits which quickly attract him. One of these is the mention of stamps, for Waldo is a philatelist (in understandable English, a stamp collector). Science is another unfailing bait. Waldo’s plans for the future are indefinite al¬ though he hopes to be able to continue in school. Marshal 3. CARL BAILEY 38 Crescent Street Franklin, Mass. “The days of our youth are the days of our glory.” This is Carl—he needs no further introduction, for what girl has not said, “Who is that chap?” Utter impeccableness at all times marks Carl as a paragon in style and fashion. Just how Carl manages to be nonchalant despite his long limbs (which he insists upon draping about the furniture) is still a mystery. Carl is a Pied Piper when it comes to sax playing and attracting (not rats), and he has proved his worth in our musical organizations. Marshal 4, Dramatics 3, Orchestra 1-2-3-4, Band 1-2-3-4, Ring Committee 3. Page Nineteen osftea YOLANDA BARTELLONI 62 Wachusett Street Franklin, Mass. “Yola” “Curley” “There ' s fun in everything we meet.” Yola is the girl who had many friends both in school and outside. Her favorite pastime was writing and answering notes. One special period was devoted to “notes.” Dancing, singing, and riding in snappy cars is what Yolanda craved and she came through with flying colors. “Curley” could draw but was very shy in showing her art. We don’t know just what “Yola” plans to do, but what¬ ever it is the class wishes her all the success in the world. Blue and White 4, Art Committee “Oskey” 4, Marshal 3. MARY BILAZARIAN Cottage Street Franklin, Mass. “Dizzy” “A smile for everyone” Small of stature, quick and active, Mary is one of the peppy girls of the class. Mary’s doctrine is one of constant action with allowance for nothing dull and staid. Although all sports rank high in favor, swimming is her favorite. Her hobby is chewing gum at which, needless to say, she is quite adept. Whatever field Mary may enter after high school days are over, we wish her luck. Track 1-2-3, Marshal 3, Glee Club 1-2. SYLVIA BLANCHARD 159 East Central Street Franklin, Mass. “And vital feelings of delight. Shall rear her form to stately height.” There has never been any need for Sylvia to crane her neck to see over other heads what was happening at a track meet or football game, for she has the advantage of being tall. But never let that worry you, Sylvia, for you can always see what’s coming. Seriously, though, Sylvia is a quiet, well-liked girl to whom we wish only the “mosta of the besta” of luck. ARTHUR BLUNSDEN 74 Cottage Street Franklin, Mass. “Bunny” “A comrade blithe and full of glee Who dares to laugh out loud and free.” Arthur, control that temper! One could never imagine this blushing, amiable chap possessing a temperament proof to anger. The occasions, however, are so rare that we need not worry about them, but we do want to make you familiar with his excellent dancing. Any young lady would be delighted to be his partner on a dance floor. His frequent appearance at the Y. M. in which place his athletic enthusiasm is noticeable sets us to believe he will pursue sports. Are we right, Arthur? Jr. Prom. Com. 3, Music 1. Page Twenty RITA BONOYER 1003 West Central Street Unionville, Mass. “Like a picture in a book, Pure and peaceful is her look.’’ Rita Bonoyer is “The Small Senior Student” who draws car¬ toons for the “Blue and White.” Her fine sense of humor is revealed by her cartoons, as well as by the compositions she gives in class. If you have missed hearing one of Rita’s com¬ positions you have really missed a good time. Rita disguised herself as the mischievous “Topsy” in the masquerade party held last year and was quite a success in her role. We all wish success to “The Small Senior Student.” Blue and White 4. JAMES BOUCHER 4 7 Cottage Street Franklin, Mass. “TINY” “Oh, he stands high in all the students’ hearts.” Is it Tiny’s smile, his curly hair, his charming personality, or perhaps his strong tall physique which has caused his tre¬ mendous popularity? In all activities Tiny may be found par¬ ticipating and excelling; on the diamond, the football field, or the stage. We salute Jim as one of our outstanding athletes who learned from sports not only how to play ball but also how to face life fairlv and squarely like a true sportsman. Marshal 2-3-4, Captain Marshal 4, Football 1-2-3-4, Bas¬ ketball 1-2-3-4, Baseball 4, Dramatics 3-4, Band 1, Orches¬ tra 1, Junior Prom. Committee 3, Freshmen Acquaintance Party 4, Music 4, Hallowe’en Party 4. YVONNE BOULEY 26 Cottage Street Franklin, Mass. “Bullet” “Merry and cheery, always gay, Happy to smile and light your way.” Soft light, sweet music, a shiny floor, a good partner; with all this, Yvonne would be content. There’s something about dancing that attracts this girl. (Is it the masculine element of our species?) This popular female enjoys cards and movies. She is full of peo, vim, and vigor. What kind of cereal does she eat for breakfast ? A jolly good sport of the “Hail fellow, well met” type. Music Class, Freshman Acquaintance, Junior Prom. 3, Year Book 4, Glee Club 4. PHYLLIS BROWN 147 Maple Street Franklin, Mass. “Brownie” “Quietly she walks her ways: Steadfast duty fills the days.” Phyllis is an ideal type of student. She does her work in a quiet and uncomplaining manner. Underneath her quietness is a heart of gold where all Phyllis’ good deeds come from. Apparently she enjoys her classes and that is probably why she has made such an advancement in her studies. Her favorite pastime, reading, is revealed by her wide knowl¬ edge of books. Good luck, Phyllis, in whatever position the future offers you. Blue and White 4. Page Twenty-One NICHOLAS BUCHANIO 17 Howard Place Franklin, Mass. “Nick” “Nicky” “I dare do all that may become a man. Who dares do more is none.” Nick is one of the happiest fellows in High School, always laughing and never with a gloom on his face. For four years this smile has traveled with him. Nicky went out for only one sport but that was enough, as he played great football games. Friends Nick had and plenty of them. He was always seen talking to some girl, but do we blame the girls? What he plans for his future is hard to say, but we wish all the good luck there is to a good sport like “Nicky.” Football 3-4, Halloween Committee 3, Music 4. GORDON BUCKLEY 192 School Street Franklin, Mass. “JIM” “From the crown of his head to the sole of his foot, he is all mirth.” Gordon has always been one of our outstanding humorists. Combining actions with words, he could send a whole class into gales of laughter without the least effort. Evidently he enjoys being entertained as well as entertaining, for he admits to a par¬ tiality for " following the Braves.” ‘Sticking around the Morse Theater” is another of his favored pastimes. Whether he be¬ comes a baseball player or movie magnate, we are sure “Jim” will succeed. Marshal 1-2, Band 1-2-3-4, Jr. Prom. Com. 3, Year Book Committee 4. ALEXANDER CAMERON Scott Hill Road Bellingham, Mass. “Legs” “Scotty” ‘‘Well-formed he was and of a goodly height, Active, and strong and valorous in fight.” Alex is one of our typical football heroes. His big frame was perfectly adapted for the rough and tumble of his favorite sport. How his dark and healthy tan is admired by many less fortunate in acquiring one! In case you have ideas of his being a sober, solemn chap, ask any of his bus companions to gain contrary information. Alex is hoping to continue school, but his plans are as yet indefi¬ nite. Football 4. RUTH CARLSON Union Street Franklin, Mass. “Ruthie” “Let me have sleek men about me” Ruth is full of fun and pep, a cute coquette, always willing to help a fellow out. She has taken four years of math, right on the chin, and is simply “buggy” about biology. We wonder why. A few more souvenirs and she will own the Dutchland farms. Ruthie will attend Dean next year and what will be Dean’s gain will be F. H. S.’s loss in regard to excellent piano playing. Won’t the little 3rd or 4th graders in a few years be lucky to have her for a teacher? Orchestra 1-2-3-4, Marshal 1-2-3-4, Dramatics 3-4, Fresh¬ man Acquaintance Committee 4. Page Twenty-Two EMMA CHELOTTI 64 North Park Street Franklin, Mass. “Graceful and useful all she does.” Always willing to help everyone, Emma is a very kind- hearted, well-thought-of member of the class. Quiet and self- possessed she has a warm smile that’s guaranteed to make you smile in return. Emma is also athletically inclined and in track meets our class owes many points to Emma’s winning jumps. No firm desiring efficiency in its employees could possibly pass up Emma. Basketball 1, Track 1-2-3-4. ALICE COREY 20 Ruggles Street Franklin, Mass. “AL” “Jest and youthful jollity.” Whenever you see a curley, brown-haired girl surrounded by a group, you will be assured of a good time if you join the crowd. Alice could brighten any dull day with her cheery com¬ ments. She has done a great deal for the “Blue and White” by sup¬ plying it with the interesting facts about the students and teach¬ ers in the Walter Winchell column. A1 proved to be a very good saleswoman as is proved by the large number of papers she sold. Best wishes to the girl who could take jokes as well as give them. Blue and White 4, Music 1, Halloween Party 3. CLARE COSTELLO 14 High Street Franklin, Mass. “Long and lovely, cool and white.” Clare is one of our very quiet seniors, a fact which proves that still water does run deep. She is tall, attractive, and soft- spoken. (Miss Wiggin will bear out the last part of this state¬ ment.) All who know Clare report that her sense of humor and wit are extreme. Clare enjoys playing her violin, and like her brother, she too, will probably be headed for a musical career at the com¬ pletion of a course at Dean. Music 1, Dramatics 3, Orchestra 1-2-3-4, Freshman Ac¬ quaintance Party 4, Halloween Party 4, President of Orches¬ tra 4. HELEN CRANDALL 219 Union Street Franklin, Mass. “Pure and noble is thy soul; Success and honor mark thy goal.” Helen is dependable, loyal, energetic, and sensible, always willing to do her share and prepared to boost her school. Not one social activity was held without the presence of this lovable girl. Never indolent, but like the busy bee, one would find her at all times occupied with something useful. With temperate will she reduced her obstacles. A gift which would be most appreciated by the faculty would be a group of students like Helen. Year Book Committee 4, Basketball 1-2, Music 1-2, Glee Club 3-4, Hockey 1-2, Dramatics 3-4, Hallowe’en 3. Page Twenty-Three Prospect Street Franklin, Mass. “Edie” “Colors of every tint and hue Mingle in one harmonious wholel” Though Edith has the hair and the artistic touch usually ac¬ companied by the artistic temperatment, you’ll find her a quiet, unassuming girl, slight of budd, and distinguished by a spon¬ taneous giggle that just will come out. Whenever a picture or poster of outstandingly lovely line and color appeared in school you didn’t have to look at the name to know that the artist was Edith. Here ' s wishing you fame and fortune in your chosen field of art. Art Committee for Prom. 1-2-3-4, Art Editor of " Melting Pot” 3, Art Editor of " Blue and White” 1, Art Committee for " Oskey” 4. CATHERINE DAILEY Peck Street Franklin, Mass. " Kitty” “Happiness is from within, not from without.’’ Such a happy person as Catherine is as refreshing as a cool breeze on a hot day. With Kitty around there are never any dull or tearful moments. Her girlish giggle, followed by her current, " Yipee, Gramma, Yipee!” generally announces her presence. Her favorite sport is bike-riding—usually in the di¬ rection of cars. Kitty’s skill as a cook is readily attested to by her friends. If happiness is true success, Kitty has already found it. Glee Club 3, Music 1-2, Hallowe’en 4. EVELYN DAVIS 4 Summer Street Franklin, Mass. “Evy” “A perfect woman, nobly planned. To warn, to comfort, and command.” If you would have something well-done don ' t do it yourself, let Evelyn do it. She has the ability of managing things with the best results and has been a moving spirit of the class. The combination of beauty and brains is admittedly rare, but Evy always was at the top of the class and floating with ease through the hardest subjects, as well as being most attrac¬ tive, with dark wavy hair and a bright smile. Evelyn plans to enter Radcliffe College next fall. Chairman of Ring Committee 3-4, Associate Editor of the " Oskey” 4, Dramatics 3-4, Tennis 3-4, Blue and White Staff 1, Marshal 4, Decorating Committee for Prom 3, Music 1. LUCY DeBAGGIS McCarthy Street Franklin, Mass. " LOU” “Thought is deeper than all speech.” Never behind in anything—that’s Lucy. For four years her pleasing good nature has been warmly appreciated by F. H. S. Nothing is ever too much for Lou when a classmate needs some help. Her sound advice and ready-to-help spirit have accom¬ plished much to put things over. Not only in her studies but also in another field does her cleverness lie. She received in her sophomore year a reward for her excellent progress in home economics. We are certain the world will gratefully welcome this girl. Finance Comm. Oskey 4, Glee Club 4, Hallowe’en Party 4. Page Twenty-Four ROSE DeBAGGIS 72 Alpine Place Franklin, Mass. " Rosie” ‘‘A nymph of healthiest hue.” Rose DeBaggis. The name immediately brings to your mind a girl with wavy brown hair and laughing eyes. She is good- natured and makes a joke out of almost nothing. She seems to be having a lot of fun this year and is always with a fun-loving group. We wonder what Rose will do when she is separated from her friends in school. Make the best of the present, Rose, for who knows what the future holds for us! Blue and White 4, Track 2, Glee Club 1, Social Committee for Year Book 4, Marshal 4. LAURA D’ERRICO 3 1 Ruggles Street Franklin, Mass. " LAU” ‘‘There’s nothing so kingly as kindness, And nothing so royal as truth.” Laura has a talent which we all know about. It is her fine singing voice. If she keeps up her singing, and studies further along the line of music we shall some day probably hear her on the stage or over the radio. Who knows? Laura’s favorite hobby is listening to the radio and she never misses Bing Crosby’s crooning. After graduation Laura expects to be a salesgirl in the Mity- gud Pastry Shoppe. We wish you luck in the future, Laura. Freshmen Acquaintance 3, Glee Club 2, Music 4, Blue and White 4, Halloween Party 4. ALBERT DE GRAZIO 68 Alpine Place Franklin, Mass. " AL” ‘‘An honest man’s the noblest work of God.” The little fellow of our class was Albert. Though he was so quiet that half the time we didn’t even know he was around, in the classrooms he held his own. His favorite hangout was Miss Anderson’s room where very often a wrestling match be¬ tween him and John De Napoli took place. Of course it was just in fun, as they were great pals. Al’s many friends enjoyed being with him in and out of classes. We hope Albert will make good in the future. BLANCHE DE GREGORIO 13 Alpine Place Franklin, Mass. " Blandy” ‘‘Silence answers much.” Does she study up at the library every night—or what? Hail to Blanche! The only commercial student who dared to venture into the 3rd year French Class. A lovable, silent girl is she who tries hard and gets what she goes after. Blanche is not content to satisfy; she desires to excel, and therefore always endeavors to do her best. Her ready smile shows that she understands the bright and joyous aspects of nature. Our parting wishes to you are health, happiness, and suc¬ cess. Hockey 1-2, Hallowe’en 4, Baseball 1-2. Page Twenty-Five DOMINIC DELFINO 31 Chestnut Street Franklin, Mass. “Dinah” “A great sport and a friend to all.” ' Tis often said that a rolling stone gathers no moss, but here is one fellow who succeeded in obtaining Morse of the genus “Dot.” On the diamond Dinah has given valuable assistance as an alert third baseman. He ' s a chummy chap with a fasci¬ nating smile who, unlike most athletes, is also a smooth dancer. Dinah’s hobby is photography, and were he to decide to make this his vocation every one would have his pictures taken. Why? With whom does that smile not raise havoc? Football 2, Baseball 2-3-4, Dramatics 3, Glee Club, Band 1-2-3-4, Halloween Party Committee 3. JENNIE DIPIETRO 19 Mechanic Street Bellingham, Mass. “JEN” ‘‘A friend when friends are wanted most.” Jennie is certainly a necessity to the Commercial Department. It seems as though she is always typing and running off stencils for some teacher. Jennie seems to be paving the way to a suit¬ able position, and we all wish her the best that luck can offer. “Jen” is a very likable person, as you will agree if you have talked with her. Good luck, Jen, and don ' t forget the good times you had in F. H. S. Basketball 1-2, Music 1, Year Book Committee 4, Blue and White 4. ARTHUR DYE 228 W. Central Street Franklin, Mass. “ART” “7 scorn to change mg state with kings.” Art has always had more or less of a quiet disposition and has always been a good student, though studying did not hold his entire interest. He also was prominent in sports, and in the band, of which he has been an active member during his four years in High School. His ardent school spirit prompted him to attend all the games and parties whether he cared about going or not. Although Arthur ' s plans for the future have not been completed as yet, we wish him all the luck possible in what¬ ever he attempts. Jr. Prom. Com. 3, Cap and Gown Com. 4, Band 1-2-3-4. MARTHA ELLSWORTH 693 East Central Street Franklin, Mass. “Martha” “Those smiles and glances let me see.” Martha was a quiet girl in our class, but it was indeed a great pleasure to have her as one of our classmates. Can Martha drive a car? Sure she can, and we all remember the day she received her license. Martha was never late for school and she could be seen in her homeroom with a large circle of friends gathered around her, discussing the events of the day. Her plans for the future are to go further on, and her suc¬ cess in life is sure. Blue and White 4, Music 4. Page Twenty-Six fos Key RUTH FRASER Mill Street F ranklin, Mass. “Fashioned so slenderly, young, and so fair .” Tall and extremely slender, Ruth is one of our outstanding feminine athletes. She makes no more work of jumping over a pole four feet high, than of stepping over a rock. Ruth ' s dialectic imitations and humorous poems are a constant source of entertainment for her friends, while her frequent trips to Boston remain a constant source of mystery. We wish Ruth lots of luck in whatever she may undertake. Commercial Club 2-3, Track 1-2-3-4. HAROLD FRESN Charlotte Street Franklin, Mass. “One blast upon his bugle horn Was worth a thousand men.” Every class must have its Don Juan, and ours is no ex¬ ception. Harold most competently fills that office. With ever¬ present smile he gains welcome everywhere. What girl refuses him a dance; that is, when he isn’t playing with the “Harmo- nians”? His talent as a trumpeter has also been a benefit and pleasure to both the band and the orchestra. Good-looking, good-natured, and talented as he is, there can be no doubt con¬ cerning Harold’s future success. Dramatics 3-4, Orchestra 1-2-3-4, Pres, of Band 1-2-3-4, Jr. Prom.

BRUNA GEROMINI 31 Peck Street Franklin, Mass. ‘‘Gerry’’ “A springy motion in her gait, A rising step—” Bruna is a star basketball player who knows how to play the game. She will be greatly missed when next basketball season comes around, and it will be hard to find anyone who can play as Bruna did in her position as forward. Bruna is so active that at some games you can hardly keep up count with the baskets she makes. Bruna is also prominent in other sports. We hope, Gerrv, that your aims will always reach their goal as your ba sketball did. Basketball 1-2-3-4, Track 1-2-3-4, Hockey 1-2, Blue and White 4. Franklin, Mass. DOROTHY GREEN 20 Dean Avenue “DOT” “Fair she is, if that mine eyes be true And true she is, as she hath proved herself.” Dorothy needs no introduction whatsoever, as she is a very popular member of our class. As class treasurer she filled the office most faithfully. “Dot” could always be seen out walking, but to say with whom would give her away. One of the beauties of the class was “Dot,” and she certainly knew how to dress. We can’t wish vou enough good luck, Dorothy. Wheaton College is where “Dot” intends to go, and may they enjoy her as much as we have.

Ha! It ' s out of the bag now. Introducing Peggy Hall, the girl whose smile melts your fancy, who is happy as the day is long, full of mirth, sociable, and sympathetic. Her heart is as big as the place “Doc” always associated with it. Margaret is always taking a nap—a Belknap—also from Doc. Picture Margaret in a few years, a nurse, garbed in spotless white, bestowing upon her patients the benefit of her good cheer. We’d almost be willing to be ill if we could have Peggy for a nurse. Dramatics 1, Freshman Acquaintance Committee 4, Junior Prom. Committee 3, Social Committee for “Oskey” 4, Music 1. HELEN JACKSON Moore Avenue Franklin, Mass. “Helen” “I shall always be a lady no matter what the occasion.” Helen is another quiet member of our class, but she certainly does not lack what it takes to make a good student. The way she always had her homework prepared insured her a warm place in the hearts of her teachers. A willing and valuable worker, she contributed much to the success of the “Blue and White.” In sewing and cooking she is especially gifted, and we hope she may put these talents to advantageous use. “Oskey” Finance Committee 4. MARY JENEST 76 Dean Avenue Franklin, Mass. ‘‘Is she not passing fair?” Mary may be small, but you never failed to see her when anything was going on. An efficient editor of the “Blue and White” and a capable librarian for the Glee Club, Mary did more than her share in extra curricula activities. Did you ask who that vivacious cheer leader was? Why, Mary, of course. No wonder she always was in demand at all the dances! Such an all-round girl will surely get her full share of luck and good fortune. Marshal 2-3-4, Dramatics 3.

Caryville HENRY KIERNAN “Chappie” ‘‘And to uphold and cheer the rest, I ought to do, and did my best.” Good natured and happy-go-lucky, Henry is one of the most popular senior boys. It is a most unusual occasion when Henry can be sighted minus his cheerful smile. “Chappie’s” (that’s his nickname) favorite sport is tennis, regardless of the fact that it is his outstanding ability as a baseball player that has won him his laurels. We are not concerned about his future success, as his smile will win him much. Baseball 2-3-4, Marshal 1-2-3-4. Page Twenty-Eight THERESA KING 6 Charlotte Street Franklin, Mass. " Tessie” “And hers the silence and the calm.’’ " Tessie " is one of our quiet, retiring girls who does things without letting the whole world know about it. Always demure and quiet, Theresa has never caused her teachers trouble in be¬ havior. Have you seen the rosy blush which spreads over her cheeks occasionally? It must be one such as hers that inspires poets. Dancing and horse-back riding are her favorite occupations. Can it really be horse-back riding which attracts the fair Tessie, or perhaps something else along the " Bridal Path " ? Music 4. CHARLES KORFF Chestnut Street Franklin, Mass. " Charlie " " Lefty” “From the crown of his head to the sole of his foot, he is all mirth.” Whenever a loud noise could be heard, Charlie was usually in sight or somewhere around. Sports were Lefty’s hobbies. In baseball he always pitched a great game and we were lucky to have him with us. Session hall wasn’t itself unless Charlie was there. Girls, too, played an important part in Lefty’s school days, but they all understood him. We know that whatever he attempts he will do well. Basketball 1-2-3-4, Baseball 1-2-3-4.

KATHERINE KRYSTALOWICZ 155 Westminister Ave. South Bellingham, Mass. " Katherine” “Far from the madding crowd’s ignoble strife.” Introducing Katherine Krystalowicz, the spry girl of Frank¬ lin High. In the winter months Katherine was very seldom in school at 8:25, but that was due to the bus’ being late. Reciting in classes is what Katherine liked and we can’t say we minded it a bit, as it really was a lucky break for us. She never appeared worried at any time but always cheerful. We all looked for that familiar smile of hers. Katherine was interested in drawing, and she knew just how to go about it. Good luck to you, Katherine, in your future. Blue and White Staff 4, Art Committee " Oskey” 4. JEAN LAVIOLETTE 33 Oak Street Franklin, Mass. " Jean” “Mirth, with thee I choose to live.” Jean is one of our most alert and noisiest classmates. Always on the go, he kept the teachers on edge with his continuous talking. But we certainly have to give him credit for being a good hockey player. His name always headed the list as high scorer for Franklin High. Jean was also a member of the band. His future, we believe, is undecided, but we are sure he’ll reach his goal. Hockey 4, Band 4.

She is a girl who never allows studies to interfere in her education! and looks at life with the proper attitude—cheerfully. This at¬ titude together with a magnetic personality and extreme gen¬ erosity has never failed to attract those about her. Annette’s favorite sport is driving a speedy car; because she fears flats, she always carries a “Jack " in the front seat. Hallowe’en Party 4, Year Book Committee 4, Cap and Gown Committee 4. VIRGINIA LONGOBARDI 211 Chestnut Street Franklin, Mass. “Ginger " “For every season she hath dresses fit. For winter, spring, and summer.” Here ' s Virginia, the most charming girl! Dresses and styles were what “Ginger " was noted for. Virginia was fond of sports and at all the games she was there to cheer for the team. She was quiet but popular in all her classes. “Ginger’’ joined the Glee Club in her senior year and we certainly appreciated her. She drew cartoons for the “Blue and White " which helped to make the paper a success. We don’t know just what Virginia is planning to do, but we wish her good luck and success. Blue and White 4, Music 4, Glee Club 4, Social Committee “Oskey” 4. RUTH LYNDS Crocker Avenue Franklin, Mass. “Giggles” “She has a voice of gladness; and a smile And eloquence of beauty.” A pretty face is an asset we all desire and so Ruth naturally becomes an object of our admiration. Her bright face is en¬ hanced by her lovely smile. The smile often, however, develops into something more engaging, thereby obtaining for her the title, “Giggles.” Her curly brown hair is arranged most at¬ tractively, which statement leads to the fact that hairdressing is the vocation Ruth has chosen to enter after finishing high school. Inter-Class Basketball 2, Junior Prom. Committee 3, Music 1-4. STELLA LYONS 2 Charlotte Court Franklin, Mass. “Fa-Fa " “She shall be sportive as a fawn.” All of us know Stella, and why shouldn’t we? She always had a ready smile and a breezy answer. The “blues” are not in her dictionary. Not only is she uncommonly active in sports, but also very much interested in home economics. There ' s an all- around girl for you. Horseback at sunrise, concocting a delec¬ table repast at forenoon, swimming in the afternoon, and danc¬ ing in the evening. With all these abilities at hand we are sure she will succeed. Basketball 1-2-3-4. Page Thirty ELEANOR McGROARY 62 Cross Street Franklin, Mass. “Mac” “El” “A face with gladness overspread.” “Mac” is considered one of the best-natured members of the class. One hardly ever sees her in other than a merry mood. Eleanor’s many admirers, (Junior boys especially), certainly kept her busy after school hours. Dancing and our school parties never held a great attraction for Eleanor, but at all the games she could be counted on to do more than her share of cheering. Best wishes to you, “Mac.” Music 4, Halloween 2-3-4. ARTHUR MILLER Pond Street Franklin, Mass. “ART” ‘‘Not from the stars do I my judgment pluck.” A good-looking boy academically inclined—what a treat! Arthur is all this and more. Good-natured, full of fun, and able to take a joke, he has one pet hate—velvet. The sciences, in which he excelled, are his chief interest (not, of course, forget¬ ting his famed harmonica). Although he hopes to continue school, Arthur’s plans for the future are indefinite, but in what¬ ever field he may enter, we are sure he will succeed. Marshal 2-3. JEANETTE MOLLA 62 Hutchison Street Franklin, Mass. “Johnny” ‘‘She is pretty to walk with And witty to talk with.” “Jolly Jeanette” well describes Jeanette’s disposition. A good word and a smile for everyone seems to be Jeanette’s motto. Her lips are always ready to break into a smile and “to know her is to love her.” Even when Jeanette has a difficult exam, ahead of her, she is always willing to have a friendly chat with you, to discuss the news of the day. Alwavs remain the same, Jeanette, because the world enjoys and needs a person with a bright smile and sunny disposition like yours. Junior Prom Committee 3, Music 1, Halloween Party 1. EDITH MUCCIARONE 93 West Street Franklin, Mass. “Peanut” ‘‘Sober, steadfast and demure.” Here ' s Edith, also known as “Peanut” to her intimates. Knowing her, you can readily understand why girls of diminu¬ tive size seem to make up for lack of height with a merry and fun-loving nature. Edith has a steady brown-eyed gaze that assures you of a serious underlying nature. Here is a domesti¬ cally inclined girl who has proved her ability along culinary and dressmaking lines. A large supply of luck to a little girl. PageThirty-One i JAMES MURPHY 62 Marvin Avenue Franklin, Mass. “Ned” “Jim” “Pardon the frankness of my mirth. " Here we have him.—Who is it? Why, what a question. No one else but Ned Sparks, the second. It made no difference whether the sun was shining or if there was thundering and lightning. Jim always greeted everybody with “Some rain!” As marshal, he never said “Single file,” but “Cut the foolin’ exactly as that favorite actor of ours does. “Jim” just had to live up to his role every minute. Keep it up, “Jim.” You may be an extra for Ned Sparks yet. Music 4, Band 1, Senior Dance Committee. HELENA MURRAY Governor Avenue South Bellingham, Mass. “Honey” “And then she danced, O Heaven, her dancingl " Everybody stand!—Allow me to introduce our Dancing Doll •—Honey Murray, the girl with pep, the girl with smiles, the girl who under any circumstances can put it over. Helena is always willing to lend her talents to help out social functions. Not only has she herself participated in all our entertainments, but she also has with characteristic enthusiasm and initiative managed the so overwhelmingly successful “Oskey Jubilee.” We are sure the world will welcome her as heartily as did F.

Fred joined the music class his freshman year and made his pres¬ ence there felt. His second year he was on the Hallowe’en Party Committee and did his share in making the party a success. On several occasions Freddy could be found selling tickets. Just now he has no definite plans for the future but we wish him success, anyway.

LOUISE PALLADINO Cleveland Avenue Franklin, Mass. “WEEZIE” “Honor lies in honest toil.” Here is a girl of a worth-while sort who is willing to do any¬ thing to make life better for a pal. She is a smart girl and when we say smart, we mean smart. Louise is one girl who really came to school to get a scholastic education. Her burning desire to succeed, together with great ability, will undoubtedly pave the way to success in anything she undertakes. No description of “Weezie” would be complete without a mention of her skill in art and her passion for good books.

" Jerry " “His quietness of manner belies the mischief that lies beneath.” When Gerald gets up to speak, his fellow classmates listen intently, because they all know that every word which pours forth is laden with an abundance of wit. In short, " His sense of humor is unique.” Gerald, unlike his twin brother Ray, (who enjoys walking with females), takes great pleasure in walking with his big Collie. For four years Gerald has cruised amongst us creating no great stir. Nevertheless his pres¬ ence was certainly felt. Adv. Committee " Oskey” 4, Dramatics 2-4.

Mertie is the kind of girl who will share her last cent with you. and if she is your friend she will remain your friend even on a rainy day when things are at their worst. Because of her interest in sports, Mertie faithfully supported the teams of F. H. S. by attending the games. Keep up your good work, Mertie, and some day success will be yours.

They are called the " Bellingham Twins” even though they are not twins, but just two girls who are very close pals to each other. Here ' s wishing the best of luck to the girl who did her Rest for F.

Some day you may find Santina on the staff of some institu¬ tion, directing the fates of many in her position as head dieti¬ tian. The best of good times and success to one who will enjoy them fully!

Always ready for a good time she may be counted on as jolly company. Her pet hobbies are bicycling and Vermont, where she spends her summers. Can the attraction be the healthful mountain air, or the Green Mountain Boys? Georgia deserves and gets our best wishes for a bright future. Prom Committee 3. FLORENCE SCACCIA Dale Street Franklin, Mass. “Flossy” ‘‘Her temper was generous, open.” “Flossy” always seemed quiet, but that was only if you didn’t know her. She was an active member of the Glee Club and never missed a rehearsal without a very good reason. She took part in all the performances and helped to make them a success. “Flossy” always had the distinction of being well-dressed, which caused her to be the envy of many of her classmates. " Flossy’s” intentions for the future are unknown, but we wish her the best of luck in whatever she undertakes. Glee Club 4. VERA SEWELL Highland Street Franklin, Mass. ‘‘And will capture your minds with sweet novelty.” If the only way to have a friend is to be one, Vera’ll have lots. Have you heard the latest song? If you haven’t, ask Vera. She’ll know it, for you can always hear this “blues” singer humming a song. Besides hearing her sing, you should see her dance. Her answers are frank and merry. Vera is just another case of a little girl with a great big personality. Marshal 2, Track 1-2, Dramatics 3, Glee Club 3-4, Music 1-2-3-4.

She practiced saying " I don’t know” with said smile in such a way that it removed any sting from the words. Doris plans to attend Simmons College next year, and after that we feel sure that her gracious charm will help her to suc¬ cess. Dramatics 4, Junior Prom Committee 3, Year Book Com¬ mittee 4. RALPH STELLO 5 1 Chestnut Street Franklin, Mass. “Tarzan” “Oh, what may man within him hide Though angel on the outward side!’’ His retiring nature is only on the outside because he confi¬ dentially says that he enjoys social affairs. What person wouldn’t be proud to know a young man who for eight years has carried heavy home responsibilities and yet has had plenty of time to do justice to his school work. It is because of his artistic temperament that Ralph is attrac¬ ted to girls with pretty faces and nice figures. Yes, Ralph really expects to study commercial art when he graduates. We’re all rooting for him. Football 2, Music 1, Band 4, Halloween 4, Year Book 4. ELIZABETH STEWART 31 Dean Avenue Franklin, Mass. “Lizzy” “Of simple beauty and rustic health.” Elizabeth is the tall good-looking girl with bright sparkling eyes and lovely blonde hair. She can be found chattering merrily along the halls with all the chattering young ladies. Elizabeth’s flashing smile is very frequently seen dimpling her lovely face. She is a very agreeable sort of a girl who is friendly to all. It has been discovered that Elizabeth is artistically inclined. Probably that is why Temples fascinate her so. VIOLA ST JOHN 9 North Park Street Franklin, Mass. “VI” “Work a little, play a little.” Viola always looks as though she has something up her sleeve, and it always proves to be something interesting if you can find out what it’s all about. A rainy day doesn’t frighten Viola’s cheery mood away. Viola hasn’t made up her mind as to what she will do in the future, but we know that she will make the best of what¬ ever the future has to offer her. Page Thirty-Five GRACE SUTHERLAND Crocker Avenue Franklin, Mass. “Sully” “Gracie” “Kind hearts are more than coronets.” How exceedingly rare is a sweet disposition—a permanent one—and how welcome the person possessing one! Gracie is among the lucky ones. She is never seen in any but a peaceful, happy mood. Whatever may be her inward feelings and reac¬ tions, she has the unusual ability of displaying only a happy countenance. Her preference for a vocation is hair-dressing, but as yet she has made no definite plans. Whatever she does, her sweet face will gain much for her. LESLIE TAYLOR 24 Fales Street Franklin, Mass. “LES” “None but the brave deserve the fair.” Leslie is one of those admirably calm and collected fellows who remain unmoved under practically all circumstances. Leslie has proved that he surely can take a lot of teasing. This may be due to two years of Doc ' s constant playful raillery. Interests? Boats, girls, and electricity are featured. However, electricity is not a mere hobby, but Leslie’s intended vocation which, attacked with his usual perseverance, will undoubtedly lead to success. Marshal 2-3-4, Year Book Committee 4, Band 1-2-3-4, Junior Prom. 3. ALFRED TERO Dean Avenue Franklin, Mass. “AL” “The reason firm, the temperate will. Endurance, foresight, strength, and skill.” Introducing Alfred, tall, dark and handsome, the one-man brain trust of the class. The way that he has always come through with those nearly perfect marks is uncanny. “Al,” who has always been very popular, must be more of a man’s man, for he was never seen to be particularly interested in the girls. We know that Alfred, possessed of a keen mind and amiable nature, is bound to succeed. Class President 3, Junior Class Marshal 3, Band 1-2-3-4, Orchestra 1, Dramatics 4. VIRGINIA TOWNE Everett Street Franklin, Mass. “Ginia” “And still the center of her cheeks Are ripe as a red cherry.” Here’s the girl with a sunny smile, sparkling eyes, and cheery ’’hello” for all. Virginia enjoys a brisk walk at all times: her easy quick gait and overflowing energy mark her as an outdoor girl. But Virginia does not confine herself to the out-of-doors. Her skill in home economics has distinguished her in the 4-H Club. The home economics field beckons Ginia, and if her present success and skill continue, she will soon be on top. Halloween Party 2, Music 1, Marshal 1-4. Page Thirty-Six CAR M ELLA VECCHIO Moore Avenue Franklin, Mass. “CAM” “But oh! She dances such a way!” Natural curly hair, flashing eyes, and a smile for everyone, that summarizes “Cam.” She can do anything, sew, play a violin, write for the “Blue and White,” typewrite, dance, and do it well! This versatility of hers makes her extremely pop¬ ular with everyone who has the good fortune of knowing her. Whoever gets Camella as a stenog. will be very lucky. Such an efficient, friendly girl can ' t help but be a success. “Oskey” Finance Committee 4, Hockey 2, Basketball 1-2. ELIZABETH VERNA 68 North Park Street Franklin, Mass. “Pee Wee” ‘‘A winning wave, deserving note.” Elizabeth is the sort of girl whom you can depend on, as she keeps all the promises she makes. Elizabeth hasn ' t decided whether she will be a nurse or hair¬ dresser. but we know she will succeed in either profession if she makes up her mind to. Elizabeth has a determined air about her and she usually gets what she aims for. We wish you luck, Elizabeth, when you aim for a higher achievement, which we know you can reach. Music 1, Hallowe’en Party 4. LEON WALES 99 Summer Street Franklin, Mass. “Dynamite” ‘‘The scarlet hue of modesty.” Drinks milk, doesn’t smoke, dislikes parties; what does he do for excitement except study? We often wonder what lies under the ice. He takes his time, but he gets there. Quiet and modest, Leon is one of our studious fellows who does things silently and well. Every day he does his good deed. Undoubt¬ edly this is his manifestation of his boy scout spirit. We are not so sure if Leon is as bashful outside of school as he is inside. ANNIE WALSH 220 School Street Franklin, Mass. ‘‘An abridgement of all that was pleasant in woman.” An “all-round” girl is so delightful a companion that there is no question as to why we all think so highly of Annie. In her studies there are few who surpass her. Sports have always benefited by her participation. We love her in dramatics. She has a great curiosity for all things, and her enthusiasm for almost everything is unbounded. It is small wonder that she is such an interesting person when her talents are so varied and numerous.

If you see him con¬ versing with a girl, you may be as sure that she started it, as you can be that he will end it. However, this is not his atti¬ tude in the presence of boys. He likes nothing better than to go off fishing or swimming with “the crowd.” We’re sure Johnny ' s likable ways will find a welcome in the world. Marshal 4. GORDON WEBBER 5 7 East Street Franklin, Mass. “GUB” “The man who blushes is not quite a brute.” “Gub” is one of these deceiving chaps — quiet, serious to all outward appearances, but really capable of as much fun-making as anyone else. His favorite pastime is golf in which, we are told, he is quite proficient. Whether his ambitions are to become a second Bobby Jones, cannot be definitely stated. We would not be a bit loth to boast of such a hero; so go to it, Gub, and good luck. Marshal 3, Baseball 4, Basketball 1-2-3-4. BARBARA WOODWORTH 5 Summer Street Franklin, Mass. “Barb” “Nothing is impossible to an honest heart.” Barbara has always been a spirited member of our class and is also a good sport in more than one way. Because of her in¬ terest in historical biographies she can easily characterize the rulers of former times. Barbara’s matinal summons to her female school chum arouses the neighborhood. With all her experience as 1st fiddler, she won’t play second fiddle to anyone. What young man wouldn ' t enjoy having as efficient a secretary as we are sure Barbara will be if she con¬ tinues in the business world? Marshal 2-3, Year Book 4, Orchestra 1-2-3-4, Junior Prom.

Russell has the distinction of being most courageous since he dared to enter the senior typing and shorthand classes which had heretofore been monopolized by the fairer sex. In school Russ is a very quiet fellow, but it is rumored that this quietness departs with great alacrity upon exposure to places foreign to school.

She’s " Risty” the only girl who casually dares to interrupt the sacred classroom, anytime, anywhere. But this isn ' t all she does. Just try to gain possession of the ball when she plays forward in basketball. She pushes her way through to basket after basket. Some of her other much- enjoyed diversions are roller-skating and driving a speedy car. We don ' t know what she’ll do when she gets out of school, but whatever it is, we wish you luck, Eleanor.

We numbered one hundred and sixty-two. As Freshmen, we knew we wouldn’t play a very prominent part in the activities of the school, but we would do our best. To introduce us, the an¬ nual Freshmen’s Acquaintance Party, given by the Seniors, was held the latter part of September. Many of us wondered if Tag Day was here again, with each freshman running around sporting his tag. Several short sketches were presented in the auditorium and refreshments were served. Several weeks before Thanksgiving we learned that we had the privilege of making up an appropriate program for the Thanksgiving assembly. A play, “The Thanksgiving Guest,” was chosen as suitable for the occasion. Marga¬ ret Hall was the Mother, James Boucher was the Father, and Alex Cameron, the son who went to war. His parents thought him dead, and though they knew that the holiday would be a sad one for them, they had invited a stranger to dinner because he had the same name as their son. Great was their surprise and joy when the stranger arrived and turned out to be their son, alive and well. Then came mid-year exams. After cramming for them, which we had to do if they were to be passed, we were mighty glad when they were over with, and we could breathe freely again. In the fall, we had been greatly honored and quite elated when the high and mighty upperclassmen had had to borrow two lowly freshmen, James Boucher and George Kussmaul, to play on the football team; and when they needed Charles Korff, Henry Kiernan, and Dominick Delfino to help on the baseball team, well, nothing better could have been asked for us. One fine morning we awoke to the fact that vacation was only a few days away. When we looked back over the past year so meone quite philo¬ sophically said, “Well, we could have done a good deal worse,” to which we all agreed. After a long summer’s vacation, some of us turned with eager footsteps to the High School; others showed a more lagging spirit but did not seem to regret the fact that they had come back. As Sophomores, we had hopes of making a better showing, but alas, how far we still had to climb to make a name for ourselves ! Would we make a good showing in athletics? That was our first thought. It seemed as if we would, when Russell Belknap, James Boucher, and Francis Crothers made such a good showing on the football team, and Boucher again showed up so well in basketball. The rest of the year passed smoothly and uneventfully. Page Forty-Two Juniors at last! Now they would have to sit up and take notice of us. The first thing- we did was to elect class officers, as follows: Alfred Tero, president; Ray Parmenter, vice-president; Laura Martello, secretary; and Dorothy Green, treasurer. The next important matter to be brought before the class was that of class rings. A class meeting was held at which a ring committee was elected. Evelyn Davis, Dorothy Green, Russell Belknap, Ray Parmenter, and Carl Bailey composed the committee. Four rings were placed on display and quite a dispute took place over which ring should be chosen. One group wanted this ring; another group wouldn’t buy one if they could not have such-and-such a ring; but finally the gold ring with an onyx setting and a slightly raised “F H S” was chosen. The big event of the year, to us, was the Junior Prom, which we gave for the Seniors. Committees for decorating the gymnasium, choosing part¬ ners for the Grand March, etc. were elected. Everything was confusion the night of the Prom and everyone was very nervous and uncertain about just what he had to do, but the March passed ofif very successfully and if we made any mistakes our audience was kind enough not to notice them. Dancing and refreshments were next on the pro¬ gram and those are things that everybody enjoys. Our class felt quite proud of itself for the next few days, for having passed the crisis in such a manner. To add still more feathers to our cap, the Seniors found out that they had to borrow a Junior for their class play and Helen Crandall was the lucky girl who played in “The Robbery.” The latter part of June the band went on a trip down to Provincetown by boat. They played going down, but not coming back. There was a very good reason for that and it is known as “sea-sickness.” Many of the students accompanied the band and quite a few succumbed to that little demon that spoils so many boating trips. However, they all voted it a grand experience and a wonderful trip. Now we are Seniors. Many have dropped out for various reasons and a comparatively small class, eighty-five, will graduate. Our class officers are: President, Ray Parmenter; Vice-President, Russell Belknap; Secretary, Laura Martello; Treasurer, Irene McKenna. Some of our boys will certainly make their mark in athletics. Russell Belknap was Captain of our football team, James Boucher of our basketball team, and Charles Korff of the baseball team. The girls of the Senior Business English Class started a paper, “The Blue and White,” at the beginning of the year. They wanted it to be a success, but were not quite sure just how it would turn out. However, the paper was Pqge Forty-Three i so interesting and some of the cartoons were so entertaining that it wasn’t long before the students were all looking forward to its appearance every other week. It ran all year and proved very profitable. The “Oskey Jubilee” was presented for the benefit of the year books. The scene was a night-club and the “Harmonians,” led by “Curly” Gibson, furnished the music. It was by the untiring efforts of our own “Honey” Murray, to produce a musical comedy of the best kind, that it was such a success, and it has certainly been very effective in reducing the price of the year books. “Peg-o’-my-Heart” was selected for the class play. It concerns an Eng¬ lish family that has lost their fortune. “Honey” Murray, Harold Fresn, Henry Kiernan, Santina Riley, Helen Crandall. Carl Bailey, Arthur Blunsden, Margaret Hall, and Arthur Miller have parts and we hope that the play is as successful as most of “Doc’s” plays proved to be. Quite a serious and rather amusing debate was held on the subject of whether we should wear caps and gowns for Commencement or not. Our president issued a paper which certainly expressed his opinion of them and it wasn’t in favor of them either. The boys didn’t seem to like the idea of wearing anything that might hamper the freedom which their usual costume allows them, but most of us girls stuck together on the matter and came out on top. We shall be the first class to wear the caps and gowns, and we are very proud of them. The Senior Hop will be held at Lake Pearl, as is the usual custom. It is the last event of the school year, and many of the Seniors dislike to see it come, for it usually means the last event that they will ever participate in at High School. The road divides from here on, and many will be the highways and by¬ ways leading to success. There is the open Door before us, and we must choose what we will be when we have passed through it. We hope to see all of our classmates and teachers back at each Alumni Meeting, especially the fifth year reunion. So until then, An Revoir.

Brunelli Page Fifty-Six football HE 1934 Football team was largely a new team, the only veterans being Boucher and Belknap, but Mr. George Colbert, the new coach, suc¬ ceeded in making a fair team of them. Captain “Blondie” Belknap, playing tackle, was one of the main stops of the line and played excellent football throughout the entire season. Masi always used speed to get down under the punts and although handi¬ capped, never ceased to fight for the team. “Wally” Willert was also down under the kicks. Willert usually knew the whereabouts of any loose balls and he certainly knew what to do with them. “Ned” Keefe, Franklin star center, deserves all the praises and honors that were heaped on him. “Ned” was always wide awake and seemed to be everywhere at once. Tiny “Jim” Boucher, tackle, stood out big in the line. It seemed that no man was able to break through. The two small, spunky guards, Crothers and Caron, deserve a lot of credit for their fight and vigor. Little “Eddie” Robinson was the main aid of the team in the back field and fore-shadowed a great future for himself in football. “Charlie” Marchand, fullback, made great yardage for the team in his line plunges and great gains. The team as a whole showed great promise although most of the boys were new comers to the field. One can see from the scores that Franklin did show a good fighting team. Scores Franklin 0 ....

Every game with one exception was a victory, thanks to the splendid training the team received and the co¬ operation of the girls. Miss Beane had practically all of the players on the first team who had played and been under her coaching the previous year. Doris De Jordy, who came here from Connecticut this year, was a welcome addition to the squad. This very fast first team consisted of Capt. Ruth Mackenzie, Bruna Geromini, Doris De Jordy, Irene McKenna, Florence Martel, and Philomena Pisini as regulars with Virginia Catalano and Elizabeth Martel as subs. Rae Atwood was elected by the team as manager, and proved very effi¬ cient. Page Fifty-Eight The schedule was as follows : Jan. 4, 1935 Alumnae at Franklin F—30 A—15 Jan. 11, 1935 Wrentham at Franklin F—31 W—13 Jan. 18, 1935 Millis at Franklin F—55 M— 9 Jan. 22, 1935 Franklin at F ' oxboro F—19 Fox.—24 Jan. 30, 1935 Attleboro at Franklin F—27 A—19 Feb. 4, 1935 Foxboro at Franklin F—23 Fox.—15 Feb. 16, 1935 Franklin at Wrentham F—24 W—15 Feb. 27, 1935 Franklin at Dean F—33 D— 4 Mar. 1, 1935 Dean at Franklin F—32 D—10 Mar. 4, 1935 Medway at Franklin F—19 M—15 The second team also had a most successful season, losing only two games, the games all showing the speed of the lighter team. According to the custom established by “Beanie” last year, the seniors who had played on the first team and were graduating were presented sweat¬ ers, white with a blue F on them. This year Irene McKenna, Bruna Geromini, and Philomena Pisini received them. The rest of the team received their letters. This was preceded by a demonstration of regular daily basketball practice. This team made a snappy appearance this year in new uniforms com¬ posed of a deep blue tunic, a white shirt, and white sneakers and socks. To the victors go the spoils and the congratulations, and we feel that this year’s girls’ basketball team and Coach Beane deserve our very heartiest for their splendid showing. Page Fifty-Nine {Boys’ {Basketball } ' ear’s basketball team had one of the most disastrous seasons any Franklin High team has had in years. The team won only three games out of fifteen starts. The new coach, George Colbert, found a solitary veter¬ an at the beginning of the season, that being Jim Boucher. Charley Ivorfif, the other veteran from last year, was able to play only the last three games.

Chet Humes was the high scorer of the season, followed by Abbott, Crothers, and Boucher. At the close of the season Frannie Crothers, outstanding guard, was elected captain of next year’s team. Prospects for next year seem bright, as only Boucher, Ivorfif, and Abbott will graduate in June. Page Sixty iHockey FTER several years of idleness hockey was reorganized at Franklin High this year. The job of coaching was taken over by our math teacher, Mr. James Doherty. In spite of the handicap of snow and lack of ice Mr. Doherty and the boys constructed a rink back of the high school. This rink also provided an amusement to the high school people during their leisure time. Captain Jean Laviolette proved to be one of the star players of the team, scoring many goals. Eddie Robinson and “Tid " Talbot, playing the forwards, rounded out a fast line and showed possibilities for the future. Leo and Charlie Marchand, the two leading defence men, did wonderful work in preventing the opponents from breaking through their positions. “Russ” Belknap, goalie, made a wonderful showing. It could be noticed that an improve¬ ment was made in every game and in the final game he held the opposition to a 4-0 victory. All in all the team proved very successful. We feel sure hockey will be continued in the future. Schedule Franklin 5 ... . Braintree 6 Franklin 6 ... . Hopedale 5 Franklin 5 ... . Medfield 3 Franklin 1 Hopedale 3 Franklin 4 ... .

Those retained were Charley Marchand and Edgar Caron, catch¬ ers : Charley Korff, Pete Fales, Paul Elder, and George Thompson, pitchers: Guy Emerson, Henry Iviernan, Leo Marchand, Domenic Delfino, and Charley Christakes, infielders: Melvin Graves, Chet Humes, Woodie Abbott, Eddie Robinson, Louis Brunelli, and Walter Willert, outfielders. In the first game at Barnstable, April 27th, Charley Korff struck out thirteen opposing batters. On April 29th we beat Millbury on Metcalf Field, 2-0. Pete Fales allowed only seven hits and struck out seven batters. At Foxboro on May 8th we met our first defeat, 2-1. Pete Fales pitched well for Franklin, but two bases on balls and two errors gave Foxboro their runs. On May 13th we won over North Attleboro by a 15-4 score. Charley Korff struck out seven opposing batsmen, and got two hits. All the players have done well, single and double hits and two home runs helping in piling up the scores. There are still several more games to play, but Coach Colbert and Co-Captains Kiernan and Delfino are confident that they will win the remainder of the games. Page Sixty-Two Orchestra year’s orchestra began under the handicap of a new conductor. Smith Whittier Ames, who succeeded Alfred Webber. It was difficult for both Mr. Ames and the orchestra to become accustomed to each other’s ways, but soon a fine friendship cemented one to the other. The orchestra made an early and creditable beginning at the Freshman Acquaintance Party. Soon after this came the Hallowe’en Party, for which the orchestra again played. The first major event in the orchestral year, however, was when the group journeyed to Boston to play, by request, for the annual convention of the Norfolk County Teachers’ Association. Because of the fine presenta¬ tion made by last year’s orchestra, it was even more desirous that this year’s group do well. As ever before it met expectations with its very best. Throughout the winter the orchestra was kept busy responding to re¬ quests to play at various social functions, while, of course, it cared for the Page Sixty-Four regular school activities, such as concert assemblies, numbers at assembly programs, and at other social events. Neither did it fail to respond to any of the several requests of an old supporter, the Alden Club. Through the cooperation of Mr. Ames and Mr. Morse of Walpole High, it was possible for a few pieces from the Walpole and Sharon High orches¬ tras to rehearse with our orchestra in preparation for public appearances. In January the combined orchestras, known as the W. F. S. Philharmonic Ensemble, played for the Walpole High senior play. We are sure that the concert, which is to be presented in June, will be a credit to Mr. Ames and the orchestra ; and a fitting climax of the year’s work. Much praise should be given M r. Ames for his unlimited patience and untiring efiforts with the orchestra. He has speeded it up to higher levels than were before attained, and we are confident that the future orchestra will keep up the high standards of the past for itself and Franklin High.

The band makes a fine spectacle, especially on the football field, where the music encourages the players to good team work. Who wouldn’t be in¬ spired by the good-looking boys in their trim uniforms and speaking instru¬ ments ? The band has been self-supporting, which is another credit to this or¬ ganization. It has been able to buy new instruments and other needed articles through its own earnings. In several of the neighboring schools where the band has played, it seemed to create a very favorable impression. We hope the band will continue its splendid work, which we know will be possible under the capable management of Mr. Patty and Mr. Ames. Members of the Band: H. Fresn, A. Tero, A. Dye, J.

Page Sixty-Six c ' Harmonians HE theme song of the Harmonians might easily be " We Were Lucky to Have Found You,” and might appropriately be used to serenade Mr. Ames. It started when a number of the musically inclined boys of F. H. S. decided that a jazz orchestra would " suit them fine.” After several futile attempts to remain organized the boys were forced to abandon their plan because of lack of able leadership. And then to F. H. S. came Mr. Ames, a young man who has had much experience in orchestral organization. He recognized the possibilities of the ambitious boys and procured orchestrations of popular songs of today and set the boys to practicing. For a leader one of the most dashing and popular boys in the school was sought — Curley Gibson, who lends to the orchestra an indefinable note of syncopation and rhythm. The Orchestra is composed of thirteen Harmonians: C. Bailey, C. Smith. W. Dumas, • H. Fresn, A. Tero, A. Brown, B. Rosa, J. Landry, E. Landry, J. DiNapoli, W. Martello, S. W. Ames, H. Gibson. The continuous cooperation and perseverance of every member enabled F. H. S. to add to its already lengthy list of musical achievements, a jazz orchestra. The orchestra has had several successful engagements and has been thoroughly enjoyed at the too infrequent socials. The Senior class salutes and thanks the Harmonians for the valuable assistance they so willingly rendered to make the " Oskey Jubilee " successful. We wish the orchestra success and prosperity. May we one day in the near future be able to say, " Oh, I knew that orchestra when..

Page Sixty-Eight dramatics 7 RAMATICS has always been one of the popular high school activities, enjoyed both by those fortunate enough to have a role in one of “Doc’s” plays and by those who made up a large part of the audience. During our Freshman year little was done by the members of our class, with the exception of the Thanksgiving assembly, presented, as usual, en¬ tirely by Freshmen. As Sophomores we were given a little more prominent position in dra¬ matics with members of our class taking the lead in one-act plays and Santina Riley a small part in the school play, “New Brooms.” In our Junior year we shared the duty of the upper classmen to enter¬ tain the rest of the school at times such as the Freshman Acquaintance Party, the Hallowe’en Party, and the Christmas assembly. At the Hallowe’en Party two short plays, “Prose Preferred,” a comedy in rhyme, and “The Dweller In the Darkness,” a hair-raising thriller, were presented. In November the Dramatic Club was formed, and presented “Highness” and “The Bishop’s Candlesticks” at one meeting, two very engrossing one- act plays, the first a story of the remains of the Russian nobility, the second an excerpt from the dramatic “Les Miserables.” Later the comedy, “A Friend of the Family,” was very well acted. At the Christmas assembly a tale of a peasant boy, “Why the Chimes Rang,” was presented in the spirit of the season. At graduation, in place of the customary Senior drama, four short plays were given, which offered much in variety of entertainment. They were, “A Window at the Inn,” “The Runner in the Snow,” “The Beau of Bath,” and “The Robbery.” Many of our class took part in them. This year, as Seniors, we took part in the play, “Chums,” at the Fresh¬ man Acquaintance Party; “Safety-Pins First” and “The Boob” at the Hal¬ lowe’en Party; and “Sounding Brass,” a Christmas play. The school play, “Big-Hearted Herbert,” a comedy, was very successfully given on May 17 with the following cast: Herbert Kalness .... Robert Kalness . Elizabeth Kalness . Martha .

Page Sixty-Nine pm 4 ' 1 4 ' IA 1 I 1 , W R5he Oskey (Jubilee Oskey Jubilee, originated and directed by the enthusiastic ingenuity of Helena Murray, aided by “Doc,” proved one of the biggest successes of its kind ever held in Higdi School. Although the Jubilee, sponsored by the Senior Class to aid their year book, “The Oskey,” was to be held one night only, such a crowd came on that night that many were turned away, neces¬ sitating a repetition of the show a week later before another large audience. All the talent of the school was assembled and with a very modern night club, “The Club Oskey,” as a background, offered their acts to the public. To “Curley” Gibson, as master of ceremonies of the club, to Mr. Ames and his “Harmonians,” who offered services, playing for the whole show, and to the rest of the fine supporting cast go the thanks of the Class of 1935, for making possible The Oskey Jubilee, besides making a lower price for the year book than ever before, and proving that talent, together with co¬ operation and a strong guiding spirit, can put over a performance worthy of praise. All hail to “Honey” Murray for having the initiative and persistence to make possible the big success. Page Seventy = jo3Kesj = Senior Statistics CLASS OF ’35 Boy who did most for F. H. S.
