Bultertu, j .!C E, THE CLASS OF 1936, dedicate this, our “Oskey,” in order that we may fittingly show our great appreciation, gratitude, respect, and love for the help and happiness he has given us. His inexhaust¬ ible supply of wit and good humor has carried us through more difficult situations and has aroused more good feeling than anyone other than ourselves can possibly realize. He has skillfully planted within us his high ideals of honesty and personal responsibility, and we wish to take this opportunity to announce that we consider him one of the finest friends we have among the mem¬ bers of the faculty and our associates. cPZrthur C W.

FRAZER Sub-Master — Sciences Doc’s classes are fine training in the art of quick and lively answers to searching questions on science — and other subjects not so scholarly. ALICE WIGGIN English Among the fibers that form her web of character are found sincere affection, profound understanding, and in¬ finite knowledge. Miss Wiggin leaves with us not only knowledge and appreciation of literature, but also sound principles and viewpoints. AGNES SHEEHAN English — History All you need to do is ask one of her pupils to receive the answer “She is swell, ' ' That’s it in a nut-shell. She knows her work and so do her pupils. DOROTHY ANDERSON Civics — U. S. History — Economics — Problems of Democracy Thru Miss Anderson’s earnest efforts we have this year founded a library. The promise of its future is rosy. Page Twelve MARION LITTLEFIELD Latin — English Endowed with that elusive quality that inspires us to do our best, not for the sake of a mark but because we value her good opinion of us, Miss Littlefield is an outstanding example of the triumph of personality over discipline. MARION LAWRENCE French Should we land in Paris by some miracle, we would be able to go about a bit, thanks to Miss Lawrence’s instruc¬ tion. E. FRANCES WASHBURN T ypewriting — Shorthand —— Bookkeeping Amid the staccato clatter of typewriters and in the midst of the whirls of shorthand, we find Miss Washburn, ever pleasantly helping us untangle ourselves from the knot of our stupid blunders. HELEN M. CROWLEY English — History — French Miss Crowley is one of the teachers whom the Ray School fire left roomless. She has cheerfully carried on her classes since then in whatever spare corner was handy, but her fine teaching has kept her students up to standard. Page Thirteen PRISCILLA BULLUKIAN Shorthand — T ypewriting -— Business Practice — Commercial Geography Miss Bullukian is our friend and, like most friends, knows our weaknesses. Nevertheless, she labors patiently with us and greatly increases our store of knowledge. ALICE BEANE Physical " Beanie” is hailed with enthusiasm everywhere, for wherever she is, there is sure to be something doing. JOHN F. RODGERS Manual Training —Mechanical Drawing Many of us had Mr. Rodgers in Junior High, and it was with pleasure that we greeted his arrival here, in our sophomore year. DORIS M. HATHAWAY Homemaking Miss Hathaway ' s new ideas and interesting manner of presenting them, are a joy to all her students. Page Fourteen SMITH W. AMES Science and Biology With his room a rendezvous for white rats and musi¬ cians, Mr. Ames in school hours teaches biology to bud¬ ding scientists, and after hours directs our many musicians in the band and orchestra. GEORGE COLBERT Athletics The “Coach’’ barked his teams to victory, but barking dogs seldom bite and often are good-hearted underneath. HOWARD LAUNDRY Physical Mr. Laundry takes the boys over the high jumps and trains them to all sorts of acrobatics. The boys say he ' s O. K. MARION HOLMES English After subbing’ a year, Miss Holmes is now perman¬ ently among us. English cannot be dull when someone so attractive is the teacher. Page Fifteen 0 MRS. MARIE RILEY Music When we had floated teacherless for some time, the guidance of our vocal inclinations was placed in Mrs. Riley’s hands, which have been very competent. MRS. IRENE K. WIGHT Drawing Under Mrs. Wight’s expert and enthusiastic instruction, talent is sure to blossom into beauty. MARIE HYDE History We had a new teacher our senior year, Miss Hyde. All who were in her classes feel F. H. S. has gained a fine per¬ sonality and we hold hope for the historical knowledge of our successors. JOSEPH DePASOUA Italian — Business Practice — Commercial Law When it was decided to add Italian to our curricula, Mr. DePasqua was chosen to teach it. He has done this very forcefully, his students and others believe.

Science and mathematics have a particular attraction for her. Those who can’t do their homework go to Barbara for aid and advice. She understands and is willing to really sympathize with the poor suf¬ ferers. Even if they are dumb (as not a few are) she summons up her patience and struggles until an awakening occurs. Undaunted, afraid of nothing, Barbara will make a name for herself regardless of circumstance or impediments.

FLORENCE THERESA MARTEL Scott Hill Road Bellingham, Mass. “FLO” “And her merry smile and graceful air Show her wise and good as she is fair.” Flo is one of those few people who can mix business with pleasure and still have everything straight when she is done. Flo ' s ambition is to become an A-1 stenographer (which she is now). If she continues her present methods, she should progress rapidly. But as was afore-mentioned, Flossie isn ' t all business — she has the keenest sense of humor and the squarest, cleanest per¬ sonality in High School. She played a marvelous game of basket¬ ball on the same principles. Florence is a class favorite because of her all-around “square shooting.” French Club 1, Junior Prom 3, Vice-President 4.

RAE ELIZABETH ATWOOD 5 Charlotte Court Franklin, Mass. “Seeing only what is fair, sipping only what is sweet, Thou dost mock at fate and care, leave the chaff, and take the wheat.” Graceful and dainty, Rae is one of the most popular girls in our class. Her sunny smile and friendly attitude denote a happy spirit. Outstanding in sports, Rae can make a homerun or a basket with equal ease. Dancing is one of her favorite pastimes, and whistling another. Next year Rae plans to attend Forsythe Academy and we all feel sure that she will do as well there as she has done in Franklin High.

EDMUND J. KEEFE 3 3 Cottage Street Franklin, Mass. “NED” “Rugged, steadfast, and tall, ‘Ned’ is the favorite of all.” In athletics Ned has certainly proved his mettle. He ' s about the only one that stands cool and collected in the midst of the fray. The opposing team trembles when it sees our big captain, Ned. The class, recognizing his business ability, twice elected him for class treasurer. Ned can also keep good order, and his work as a mar¬ shal has proved beneficial to the school. Popular among his friends because of his Irish wit, Ned will be well-liked in the future with his good nature and common sense.

Pa ge Twenty HERBERT AMBLER Scott Hill Road Bellingham, Mass. “BUDDY " “Carefree in manner, he drifts along.” Herbert is one of those admirably calm and collected fellows who remain cool and unmoved under practically all circumstances. His retiring nature is only on the outside, however, as it has been found that he enjoys social affairs. Whenever the fellows were in doubt about a fight or the physical prowess of one of their number, they always appealed to Buddy. Bud’s favorite sports are wrestling and horseback riding. His good nature and bits of philosophy made him liked by all. Good luck and good times. Bud. VIRGINIA BAGDONOFF 1 10 Pond Street Franklin, Mass. “GINGER” ‘‘Tall of stature, calm of mind.” Meet Ginger, drum-major of the Franklin High School Band. You can easily guess how she got this position. She is tall, graceful, and has the ability to lead with a rhythm that is hard to equal. Ginger has other musical talents and hopes to cultivate her voice later. She intends to take up the study of law, in which she should be successful, gifted as she is with a commanding appearance. We should hate to defend ourselves against her cross examination. Luck be with you, Ginger. Drum-major 4. Home Economics Club 4, Marshal 4. RUTH COOPER BATES Scott Hill Road South Bellingham, Mass. “BATESIE” ‘‘Smiles and songs smooth o ' er the troubles of the world.” Batesie comes from the old-fashioned town of Bellingham where the venerable residents believe that " Girls should be seen and not heard, " but Batesie, being modern, disagrees. Everyone admits she’s right. That flashing smile of hers spreads more good-feeling than seems possible. As for being heard, Ruth has the most gor¬ geous voice a High School girl ever had — and it would be a shame if she didn’t use it. Long after all else is forgotten, we shall remember the winning combination of a lightning smile and a golden voice.

CLEMENTINA BERTONI 3 7 Alpine Row Franklin, Mass. “MANDY” ‘‘Always friendly and full of cheer, Faces brighten when Mandy draws near.” Mandy is always a true supporter of the class. When the class is trying to put something over, Mandy is right there, pushing hard for success. If help in wanted, Mandy is always glad to assist. She proves a worthy friend to all who are fortunate enough to have a claim to her friendship. Humorous sayings easily drive the dark clouds away and Mandy’s happy face is welcomed everywhere. As her vocation, she has chosen stenography, and we wish her all the luck in the world. Commercial Club 4, Blue and White 4. Page Twenty-One MILDRED BOZAIv Franklin Road South Bellingham, Mass. “MILLIE” " Merry and cheery, always gay. Happy to smile and light your way.” Millie is another girl with a sunny smile, sparkling eyes and a cheery “hello” for all. She is a fine athlete, but for some reasons unknown to us, she has not taken part in school activities. Swim¬ ming is Millie ' s favorite sport. She is a good student and has a large number of friends. Although Millie has no definite plans for the future, here ' s wishing her loads of success in whatever field she may choose to enter. MADALENE BROWN 49 Main Street Franklin, Mass. “MADDY” " Of gentle manner, of affection mild.” A glowing red head atop a statuesque figure, that’s Maddy. She is our shining light in domestic science, and Miss Hathaway ' s right-hand man. If there is anything to do in that line, she is sure to be in it. Even her marshal station is down by the sewing-room. We believe she is to be a domestic science teacher or a dietitian, with leanings toward the latter. If so, she’ll surely know her business. Marshal 4, Hallowe’en Party 3-4, Home Economics Club 4. MARION BROWN Mechanic Street Bellingham, Mass. “BROWNIE” " A tripping, dainty miss, with spirit rather high--” With a sparkle of mirth and a glint of laughter in her dark brown eyes, stands this attractive miss who hails from Bellingham. Marion is a studious girl and takes pride in doing her work thoroughly. Brownie ' s fingers are very clever with the needle, and she enjoys using her talent in turning out smart clothes. Like many of the rest cf us, Marion is not just sure what she is going to do, but whatever it may be, we wish her luck. Marshal 4, Home Economics Club 4. BRUNO BRUNELLI Ruggles Street Franklin, Mass. “Quiet is of me no friend; Give me noise without end.” Bruno is one of our most alert and noisy classmates. He kept the teachers on edge with his continuous comments on other people. Bruno went out for only one sport, but that was enough, as he played a wonderful game of football. He also tooted long and loud in our excellent band. Jolly and good-natured, Bruno likes to see those about him as happy and carefree as he. Bruno ' s success will spring from a happy spirit and the wish to do a good job on everything he undertakes. Band 1-2-3, Glee Club 3, Football 2-3. Page Twenty-Two LOUIS BRUNELLI 228 Summer Street Franklin, Mass. “LOUIE” “With a quick leap and a forward pass Louie ' s the athlete of the class.” Excelling in athletics, Louie is a true picture of the “football hero.” He can carry a ball for yards in the teeth of the darkest foe. Franklin rooters go wild about the “beautiful” kicks that he drops over the goal post for a sensaticnal extra point. Louie doesn ' t spend his time on sports alone; oh, no; he also takes books home to study and really tries to see through their teachings. In the fall Louie plans to enter Dean Academy, and with his spirit and en¬ thusiasm he will surely meet success. Football 3-4, Baseball 3-4, Junior Prom 3, Basketball 4, Marshal 4. PIA BRUNELLI 67 Alpine Place Franklin, Mass. “PETE” “Steady and kind, honest and true. These I will be in all I do.” Never late for school, she can be found discussing the events of the day with all her friends before classes. Although she was a quiet girl, it was a pleasure to have her as a classmate. As a pal, Pete is one of the best-natured girls and is willing to see you through, no matter how trying things are to the patience. Her ready smile shows that she understands the bright and joyous aspects of nature, and a broad grin makes her welcome everywhere. Our parting wishes to you, Pete, are health, happiness, and success. Home Economics Club 4. MARION CARPENTER 285 West Central Street Franklin, Mass. ‘‘A friend in need is a friend indeed.” We always find Marion of unfailing good nature and friendli¬ ness. Whenever possible Marion will assist her classmates, and is a willing helper of our long-suffering teachers. She is rather a quiet girl, but whenever she is called upon, you can always depend on a good answer. Marion wants to work in an office although she hasn’t chosen any particular type of work. We wish her success and know that she will make a fine office worker. Dramatics 2-3-4, Junior Prom 3, " Blue and White” 4, Glee Club 2-3, Hallowe’en Party 3, Commercial Club 4. VINCENZO A. CALDARARO 49 Ruggles Street Franklin, Mass. “JIMMIE” “Always spin, but never spoon.” Jimm ie is not known by everybody, but those who do know him are glad to have him as a classmate. He never hesitates to do a good turn for any of his friends. Understanding human nature, Jimmie knows humor is often lacking in the classroom and usu¬ ally gives valuable assistance to star comedians. Disregarding pene¬ trating glances of cross teachers, he sometimes carries his humor to a session. Whatever Jimmie takes up as his life work, among the many he may choose from, we wish him success. Band 1-2-3-4, Marshal 1-2-3-4. Page Twenty-Three VIRGINIA MILDRED CATALANO 14 King Street Franklin, Mass. “Ginny” “Chigg” “Catty” “A friend to all, and a grand, good sport.” Ginny is the spry little athlete of our class. In her last two years she became famous as the star side center on the Basketball team. Catty may W small but her vitality and speed have won many honors. Virginia was right there in track and never failed to come out on top. Ginny’s popularity is not due to her athletic ability only, but also to her vivacious good nature. Maybe Virginia will combine her ability for reporting and her love of sports and become the first woman sports-writer. Basketball 3-4, Track 3-4, Marshal 4, Junior Prom Committee 3, Dramatics 1-3, Glee Club 1-2-3, Music 3. PAULINE MARIE CATALDO 105 Cottage Street Franklin, Mass. “PAULY” ‘‘A smile for each — a friend for all.” Pauly has a smile that never vanishes. On cloudy days when the majority of people feel blue, Pauline is always wearing her happy smile which brightens many a classroom. Pauline’s gaiety goes still further, as she was an active player on the basketball team and sang in the Glee Club. Pauline intends to go to school next year, and we hope she will still be as good-natured and popular as she was in her High School Days.

ETHEL CHRISTAKES 2 Garfield Street Franklin, Mass. “Christy” ‘‘A great sport and a friend to all.” We want you to meet Christy, a fair complexioned girl with dark, naturally wavy hair. Her pleasant smile wins many friends and doesn ' t limit itself to them, hut also brightens other voyagers, sailing o’er the sea of life. These charms would cheer us in any office, but Christy doesn’t intend to be a stenographer. Her am¬ bitions lie in a different direction, in the field of hairdressing. We can readily see why they do because the neat appearance of her hair always attracts admiring attention. We are confident that she will do well. French Club 1, Commercial Club 4, Hallowe ' en Party 1-2-3-4, Junior Prom 3, " Blue and White” 4. BESSIE ELLEN CLARK 43 Lincoln Street Franklin, Mass. “Modest and shy as a nun is she.” We hesitate to list all Bessie’s good qualities: because of limited space we couldn t do them justice. The hest we can do is to suggest that you pause and think over the qualities in your New Year ' s resolutions. Weren’t they something like the following? Resolved: to be helpful, agreeable, considerate, natural, cheerful, respectful to superiors, etc. Such qualities look very well written down as reso¬ lutions but are more appealing written in one ' s character, as every¬ one realizes who knows Bessie. Glee Club 3-4, Dramatic Club 2. Page Twenty-Four sm LILLIAN MAE CLARK Center Street South Bellingham, Mass. “RED” “LILLY” " Quietly she walks her way; Steadfast duty fills the day. " An ideal type of student is Red, who voices her opinions in the face of opposition, rather than stating them behind opponents ' backs. This hurts no one ' s feelings, but rather makes friends of would-be antagonists. More may be learned by this method, and Red is well aware that other people’s ideas broaden views on different subjects. Never holding back shyly. Red has acquired many friends because of her friendly attitude and buoyant spirit. Whatever field she chooses to enter in her life work, we know Lillian will succeed. " Blue and White” Secretary 4, “Oskey” 4. JAMES COCHRANE Summer Street Franklin, Mass. “JIMMY” “TINY” “ Soft-voiced and calm, of disposition mild. Until by some foolish infant riled. " A modest, unassuming youth is Tiny. Because of his quiet way, many have not had the good fortune to discover his true nature. This is rather deceiving, as Jimmy knows the force of sarcasm and believing that the tongue is mightier than the sword, acts accordingly. Without a great deal of trouble he can see through the analytical part of mathematics. Geometry and Solid are simple for him, per¬ haps because of his remarkable memory. To continue in this line, Tiny plans to attend Lowell Tech. Happy landings, Tiny. Marshal 2-3-4. ALICIA VERONICA CORR 4 3 Oak Street Franklin, Mass. “MIKE” " And it ' s looked upon as very meet To give a smile to all we greet. " A cute Irish coquette is she, full cf pep and enthusiasm. Mike never looks on the dark side of life, but like a true “Pollyanna” tries to find something to be glad about, no matter how difficult the task appears. Her geniality and mischievousness are the pride and delight of her friends. Because Mike has such a pleasing peron- ality, she has selected a vocation that will enable her to meet many people and acquire new friends. Mike wishes to be a hairdresser and will begin to study for this soon after leaving F. H. S. Glee Club 4, Music 2, Freshman Acquaintance 4, Marshal 4, Hallowe’en Party 4, Home Economics 4. HELEN COSTELLO 122 West Central Street Franklin, Mass. “MICKY” " A genial spirit and pleasant word Make scowling faces seem absurd. " Behold! A superior being in our midst. Make way, pitiful imi tators, for one who not only dares to be herself but has confidence in that self. Midst the harrassed beings that make up the greater part of our school population, Helen goes serenely on her way brightening less gifted ones with her ready wit and warming smile. As you might imagine, popularity follows, not only with her classmates, but also the faculty. This is a commendable achievement (as any aspiring student knows). Glee Club 4. Page Twenty-Five fa ml KATHERINE PATRICIA COSTELLO 122 West Central Street Franklin, Mass. “KATE” “BOBBY” " Quiet and shy at first is she. but soon you ' ll find her good company; With wit unexcelled, dull cares abate, under the magic smile of Kate.” Kate always looks happy; mischievous smile and twinkling eye prove that she isn’t so serious as she at first appears. Sad faces brighten when Kate’s radiant countenance appears. Although she doesn ' t belong to the Glee Club, Kate seems to find the inspiration to sing during History Class. It livens things up a good deal! Never bothering about the tune, she has all those sitting near her trying to suppress their mirth. Kate never has to worry about her marks and will surely succeed with her Irish wit and ready smile. Junior Prom 3, Dramatic Club 2, Hallowe ' en Party 4. PATRICIA CRAY 75 West Street Franklin, Mass. “PAT” " As 7 treat my friend so shall I treat my enemy.” When Pat walks by, even if you do not see her, you are con¬ scious of her passage. She is one of those people who, while un¬ assuming, have nevertheless very delightful personalities which make them the joy of all their friends. We all rejoice to see Pat in our midst, and enjoy her quiet presence. If you get to know her well, you certainly will agree that she is a very good friend. All her friends know she will be successful, no matter what she undertakes. French Club 1, Commercial Club 4. FRANCIS CROTHERS 5 7 West Central Street Franklin, Mass. “FRANNY” ‘‘Never trouble trouble Till trouble troubles you.” Franny is a spirited fellow with lots of pep and energy. He seems forever in a red-hot argument. Franny played basketball for four years and was captain in his fourth year. Franny is well-known for his many “Long Toms” that saved more than one game for the home team. He has also played well for our baseball and football teams. He was always the smallest player cn the team but the one with the. most vim and vigor. We wish you luck, Franny. May you never lose your pep.

OLIVE CROWELL 4 Maple Street Franklin, Mass. “PICKLES” “Sweet as the freshest breeze at dawn, Gentle as a dove, Thou hast won due admiration Mingled with pure love.” Being the pride and joy of her teachers and the fun-loving com¬ panion of her classmates would be difficult for anyone but Olive. Appealing winsomeness, keen sense of humor, flattering interest in others, unaffected goodness arc just a few of her qualities. We could go on singing her praises ad infinitum (how are we doing, Olive?) but why completely exhaust ourselves when we can sum them up in the one word—Charming.

" TONY” " FLASH” “His mouth is stretched in happy grin, Ready to open and merrily sing.” Listen! Do you hear it? Tony is playing his accordion and everybody’s feet want to dance. Fie is the Franklin High School ' s Phil Baker, with his accordion and witty manner. When you find Flash, you usually see, accompanying him, Bruno and Louis; the three are Siamese triplets. Like the three Musketeers they back one another, whether it be a game, fight, or general good time. With this remarkable talent for music, his love of a frolic, and his characteristic grin, Tony will surely take his place in the world. Football 2-3-4, Senior Flop 4, Basketball 3. ALPHA DAVIS 95 Dean Avenue Franklin, Mass. " AL” " The personification of sweetness, all grace Summ’d up and closed in little.” Presenting Alpha, a gay classmate and a true friend. One of our very dainty misses, Alpha is blessed with a friendly disposition, un¬ obtrusive ways, and a becoming reserve which has a tendency to distinguish her from her far too forward contemporaries and which is, at the same time, one of the reasons why everyone finds her so appealing. If her friendliness and retiring ways have struck a re¬ sponsive chord in our hearts, her singular sweetness has caused them to burst into an unrestrained melody. PALMA ANNE DeBAGGIS 49 Ruggles Street Franklin, Mass. “Quiet, but smiling.” Most of us will remember Palma as the girl who was quiet except when showing some erring classmate how to " do " a certain Latin phrase correctly. Palma always seemed to have some predilection for Latin (for what reason she never disclosed) and she always engaged in any controversy regarding the subject. All in all, Palma is a great girl, both socially and mentally, thereby warranting our wishes for a happy future. Tibi optima et felicissima fortuna. Hockey 1, Dramatics 1-2, Hallowe’en Party 1, Math. Club 4. DORIS RITA DeJORDY 16 A Street Franklin, Mass. " DOT” " The better we know her, The better we like her.” Dot joined our class at the beginning of our third year and soon became acquainted with everyone. She is one reason for the vic¬ tories of the girls ' basketball team. Because of her height, Dot was the star jump center and it was with difficulty that an opposing team got the ball by her. She not only excels in fields which require brawn, but stands high in those which require the rarer quality of brains. We hope your winning spirit will enable you to get to your goal in life suc¬ cessfully, Dot. Basketball 3-4, Track 3-4. Page Twenty-Seven RALPH DeLUCIA 240 Summer Street Franklin, Mass. " In all the fields of sports Steadily to the enemy he sends retorts. Which make them sadly view The things they thought they were to do.” Ralph returned here at the end of his sophomore year, from New York, after an absence of four years. He quickly became accustomed to the change and has succeeded in all his classes since. In the two years preceding his return, Ralph took part in all the sports. Here he has continued, playing two years of basketball and football. The future is still a closed book to Ralph, but soon he will fill in the blank pages successfully, we are sure. Football 3-4, Basketball 3-4. JOHN DeNAPOLI 2 7 Washington Street Franklin, Mass. " A quiet, unobtrusive lad, is he, 71s anywhere you are apt to see.” Although he is naturally quiet when quiet is the thing, John makes plenty of noise when that is proper. As a freshman he joined the “new " band, under Mr. Patty, there to learn to toot the trumpet. In the orchestra he exchanged the trumpet for a banjo, which he strummed vigorously. John has enjoyed these activities very much, as those with him have enjoyed his presence. The future which lies ahead is as yet undecided for John. What¬ ever it may contain, however, his classmates wish him every success. Band 1-2-3-4, Orchestra 1-2-3-4. RUTH DOWLING 330 Lincoln Street Franklin, Mass. “DARLING” “RUTHIE” ‘‘Unruffled, calm, and appearance sleek. For these no farther need you seek. " Ruth personifies neatness with a capital “N.” Her affable manner draws many to her. She always attends the social functions of the school, a fact which proves she is a faithful backer of the term “school spirit,” and also enjoys the society of her friends. Ruthie is a good sport, playing the game of life fairly and squarely. She is a true friend in times of trouble, doing her utmost to create a cheerful and pleasant atmosphere. Ruth chooses to be a nurse, at which vocation she is sure to succeed.

" The little fellow in our class was “Billy.” Though he was so quiet that half the time we didn’t know he was about, he held his own in the classrooms. Billy ' s sax playing won him many laurels and he proved a dis¬ tinct aid to the band and orchestra while he played in them. His ardent school spirit prompted him to attend all the games and parties, whether he cared about going or not. He isn’t certain what he is going to do. but we are sure he will succeed. Band 1-2-3-4, Orchestra 1-2-3-4. Page Twenty-Eight GUY EMERSON Park Road, Franklin, Mass. “Emma” " A little nonsense now and then Is relished by the best of men.” Usually a model student, but sometimes a mischievous one is Emma, one of the class comedians. His innocence after an outburst deceives the most discerning teacher. Alone, he is the quietest of the quiet, but when he is with his own special friends, his wit readily bubbles out in all its glory. Classes are never dull when Emma is at his best. In athletics, students have a great time watch¬ ing Emma hopping up and down cheering the team. Next year he plans to attend college and we are sure that Emma will attain his desired goal.

SUSAN ELEANOR ESTES Scott Hill Road Bellingham, Mass. “SUE” " How wise and calm she seems to be, So quiet—we shall never know.” Susan comes from the quiet little town of Bellingham and brings a lot of its good qualities with her. She is about the quietest girl in school, but like all non-talkative people she works. Susan has la¬ bored industriously for our journals, especially the Oskey, but no one realizes that, because she never says a word about what she has done. The last year, however, Susan learned to do a new thing, blow her own horn. She joined the band, and was a very valuable addi¬ tion. High credit for her list of “deeds.” Melting Pot 1, Band 4, Math.

When calmness added makes a pair.” Pete is what is known as a good fellow. He is friendly to every¬ one and is a good pal. As for his classes he gets along very well in them, having little trouble with any assignment. He also has an eye and an aim, as his pitching for four years on the baseball team shows. He has been the team ' s standby and the Blue and White will miss his steady pitching. Next fall Pete intends to enter college. Good luck and good ball. Pete. Baseball 1-2-3-4.

JOHN FITZPATRICK Dale Street Franklin, Mass. “JOHNNY” " Steady buzz and steady drone, He murmurs along in an undertone.” Johnny was our senior debater. No matter how many were on the other side, who they were, or what the question was, he could always be depended on to give a fight. Fight he would until the opposition gave up or admitted he was right, as not infrequently happened. In spite cf this tendency, he was always cheerful and never held a grudge more than a few minutes. Upon finishing school, he plans to attend the “First National Col¬ lege.” Hallowe ' en Party 2, Jr. Prom, (decorating committee) 1-2-3. Page Twenty-Nine EILEEN KATHRYN FOLEY 5 1 Marvin Avenue Franklin, Mass. “The days of our youth are the days of our glory.’’ If anyone in the class is looking for some fun. he never needs to go far, because it is right around the corner whenever Eileen is near. She is always bubbling over with pep and mirth. Drawing pic¬ tures is one of her favorite amusements, and many a grinning cari¬ cature has delighted an interested audience. When she is not busy with homework, Eileen’s bits of humor are gratefully received by toiling neighbors. Mischievous and happy-go-lucky, Eileen will meet her future experiences with as much enthusiasm as she has shown in those she encountered at F. H. S. Glee Club 1-2-3. CLARA FOSS 483 West Central Street Franklin, Mass. “A sympathetic listener to other people’s woe Brings a ray of sunshine wherever she may go.’’ Clara is one of those rare “finds. " Instead of doing all the talk¬ ing, she listens to you. When there is a particular task to be done that is distasteful to her, Clara doesn’t try to “pass the buck,’’ but willingly undertakes the work. Clara respects authority; if she is told to do a certain thing, she’ll do it to the best of her ability without grumbling or procrastinating. Clara is a good sport, a good worker, and a good friend. With these qualities to her credit she can ' t fail in the future. ANTHONY PHILIP FRENETTE 27 Washington Street Franklin, Mass. “FROGGY” “TONY” “A likeable chap with manner easy. His very words and acts are breezy.’’ Introducing Tony, light-hearted and light-footed. Flow he keeps up in classes is a mystery to his friends, for his numerous engage¬ ments allow him no time for study. Many times Tony’s wit has come to the rescue. (A clever excuse is sometimes worth an A with a broad-minded teacher.) So, Tony dances merrily on, for he really can, there is no question about that, and there are few in¬ deed who don’t know it. Perhaps Tony takes it more seriously than we think and who knows but what Tony ' ll be a professional dancer? Music 1, Marshal 4, Dramatics 1-2. MARY GALUZA Scott Hill Road Bellingham, Mass. “MARY” “GAL” “Work a little, play a little.” Mary, a charming and likeable girl, hails from Bellingham. With her pleasing personality, Mary found no difficulty in making friends. Mary is talented in toe dancing and we know that she ' ll go far in that field. She was the acrobatic dancer in the " Oskey Jubilee” which was one of the reasons for its big success. Gal plans to join a dancing troupe and travel on the road. We wish her the best of luck. Some day we’ll be saying—“We knew her when—■” Oskey Jubilee 3, Marshal 4. Page Thirty ELIZABETH GENOA 29 Saxon Street Franklin, Mass. “BETTY” “Smiling and pleasant to all is she. Gay as everyone ought to be.’’ ' Though small, Elizabeth is one of the happiest members of our class. She knows that a cheerful spirit giveth life and hope to a dreary world. Her wit really amazes those who know her not, for she is very conservative in manner. When this smart business pupil becomes acquainted, however, it doesn’t take a person long to realize what a lot of everything her employer will be getting at the expense of Franklin High. Whatever the future has in store for you, we wish you lots of luck. Commercial Club 4, Blue and White 4. VERA GIANETTI Pleasant Street Franklin, Mass. “VI” “you have no cause to hold her friendship doubtful; She never was or ever will be false.” Honest and frank, Vera is not afraid to “stand on her own feet” and " stick up for her own rights.” She is a reliable friend and may always be counted on to do her part. Independence of spirit and mind is a chief characteristic of hers. As a good student, Vera certainly understands office work. Her neatness and accuracy will win the approval of any business man, should she choose stenography for her vocation. We know that whatever she chooses, she will make a go of it. Commercial Club 4, Blue and White 4. ZEFFRO GIANETTI 5 7 Hudson Street Franklin, Mass. “ZEFF” “Quiet, save when wind and fingers Make music that in our ears still lingers.” Zeffro is one of the boys possessing the rare gift of maintaining silence. He was one of our good students, though studying did not hold his entire interest. His sax playing has made him promi- nent in the band and orchestra, of which organizations he has been an earnest member. Zeff’s future is undecided, although it has been said he wants to continue in school. But we know whatever he does, success will al¬ ways follow him. Band 1-2-3-4, Orchestra 1-2-3-4. MILDRED GREEN Maple Street Franklin, Mass. “MILLIE” “She is pretty to walk with And witty to talk with.” A good word and a smile for everyone seems to be Mildred s motto. Her favorite sport is horseback riding. Can it really be the riding or is it something else which attracts our Millie? Whenever you see Mildred you are sure to see Ginger. They have often been mistaken for sisters, altho they are not related. They are inseparable pals, however. Millie is not sure what she ' ll do, but whatever the future may hold, she is sure to win her objective. Marshal 4. Page Thirty-One HELEN MARJORIE GREGOIRE Scott Hill Road South Bellingham, Mass. “MARGIE” “Marching along together —” Margie’s another one of Bellingham ' s creditable contributions to F. H. S. Ever since she came here, everyone has had to hurry to keep in step with her. She carried that theme to the final degree this year and became one of the best drummers in the band. Margie always liked music, so she joined both the Glee Club and the band. Her music doesn ' t stop at her head, but runs right down to her toes. Just watch her on the dance floor. Margie is an all-round girl, likes to do everything, and is liked by all. “Good Luck,” Margie.

She is a natural-born leader of good times. If anyone looks sorrowful, a glance and a friendly smile from Peggy will brighten the most doleful. Her fingers can never remain idle and so she takes up sewing. What miracles thread and needle have wrought under the guidance of patient Peggy! What a wise decision she made in choosing nursing as her career! She will succeed in this profession with her calm, cool manner and steady hand. The best of luck, Peggy. Home Economics Club 4, “Oskey” 4. BERYL HENRY 444 Lincoln Street Franklin, Mass. “SLIM” “ There’s fun in everything we meet.” Entertaining in manner and speech, Beryl is frequently surrounded by a group of friends. So whenever you see a curly-headed, brown¬ haired girl, talking with a throng, you will be assured of a good time if you join the crowd. Since many wonder if Beryl has a permanent permanent, they might be pleased to know that her hair is naturally wavy. A number of pupils are rather envious of this wave. Beryl would like to continue her studying in Home Eco¬ nomics. Here’s wishing you loads of luck and success. Dramatic Club 2. ENID LYLE HENRY 444 Lincoln Street Franklin, Mass. “HENNY” ‘‘Her smile makes friend or foe rejoice —• As do her curls —, but oh, her voice.” Henny is one of the very lively members of our class. When the band extended an invitation to the girls to join. Enid was one of the first to accept. Believe it or not, she can really toot a horn, nor does it seem hard for her; in fact, she even seems to enjoy it. Enid also has a beautiful voi ce, and the Glee Club esteemed her membership through her four years in it. May good luck always follow you, Enid.

She also joined the band in her fourth year. Reta’s favorite pastime is dancing, which she performs excellently. We shall always remember you, Reta, as the blonde goddess of the class.

An excep¬ tionally good dancer, she enjoys this pastime very much. Dot will never be known as a “Wall-flower " at a dance, and if you want to learn the Tango or Rumba, ask Dot! Dot never missed a Basketball, Baseball, or Football game and might be called Franklin High’s best “rooter.”’ The teams will miss Dot’s cheering and also her leading, for she was a sub cheer¬ leader for two years.

We all remember his playing at the Freshman Acquaintance Party. He is known to his classmates as Cab Calloway. Nickie’s ambitions are to organize a band in New York, become a great orchestra leader, and write songs. He has been given the leadership of the musical comedy and we know that it will be a success under his able direction.

In the gymnasium and in the homcmaking room she is a “Jim-dandy.” Whenever a suppressed laugh is heard, or someone is talking in an undertone, just look around and see if you don ' t see Rheta.

Ever since our freshman year her clever pen has delighted the school paper fans. Although she tries to stay more or less unobserved by most of the students, there are many who prize her friendship dearly. Her animated conversa¬ tion and the stately manner in which she conducts herself win the esteem of her classmates. We expect to see her talent with words carry her far, and we hope the way is easy.

Ruth also likes to read good stories (not all novels) and she plays the clarinet. Next year, Mac wishes to enter Sargent College and we ' re confident she will obtain as many merits there as she has in High. Orchestra 1-2-3-4, Tennis 2. Capt. 3-4, Baseball 2-3-4, Bicycle Club 3.

Fler smile is gay and contagious. In music she has had her share, for Blanche has taken part in the Glee Club for three years. Dancing is one of her favorite activities. Whenever there is a “social,” then Blanche can almost always be found lightly tripping a measure with ease as well as joy.

Whenever the class needs support in any of its activities she is a willing and valuable worker, never shirking her duty. In spite of her keeping mostly in the back¬ ground, her attractive manner and appearance win the respect and admiration of many.

Many will have a clear picture of him, flashing down the floor so fast that the only things that identified him were a shock of tow-colored hair topping a red streak and the trium¬ phant swish of a well-made basket.

Whenever you see her brown jacket, you are sure to see Connie’s red one in the immediate vicinity. Melda and Connie are the closest of pals. Melda plans to become a stenographer.

His inmost soul appre¬ ciates classical music and drawing as well, and he is very proficient in the latter. When the class desires an artist, it calls on Victor, for he’s sure to fill the bill.

Yes, it’s our giggling senior, Grade. The teachers always look into the corner where Grace sits if there is any sign of disturbance in the class. Ask Miss Washburn, she knows. Gracious is very much interested in nursing; picture her a nurse within a few years, bestowing upon her patients the benefits of her good cheer. We’d almost be willing to be ill, if we could be nursed by Giggles, and hear her giggle. Music 3, Dramatic Club 2. ALBERTA NEALER 60 East Central Street Franklin, Mass. “BERT” “Her talismen. Mirth and Equanimity, Are ever in her immediate vicinity.” We always find Bert of unfailing good nature and friendliness. Perhaps one reason is that she never worries about her homework which is done regularly and well. She is especially successful in shorthand and typewriting. Her happy nature and outlook in life make her an addition to any group she m ay join in school or out¬ side. When Alberta comes in the door, dull care and tiresome trouble fly out the window. For some crabby executive she will make an excellent secretary, efficient and undismayed by his short temper. French Club 1, Commercial Club 4.

He was tackle on the football team, and throughout the four years he did his best in athletics. For the walking advertisement of what the well-dressed young man should wear, you need look no farther.

Although she is not sure what field to enter, we are certain that Natalie will persevere and make good, whatever she undertakes.

She is a bright business pupil who, although not really caring for homework, ponders over it until it becomes part of the knowledge already stored within her cranium. We know she will be an efficient stenographer. Success to you, Izzy. Basketball 2, Commercial Club 4, Hallowe’en Party 4, Blue and White 4. Page Forty CARL E. SMITH 25 West Central Street Franklin, Mass. “SMITTY” “A cherub of the cherubs, until perchance you look. And find all isn ' t as ’tis written in a book.” ‘‘Squeal stick” in B flat, directly in front of the leader, is manned by Smitty in person. His clarinet has ‘‘squealed” regularly and ef¬ fectively in the orchestra all through High. If he sees a chance for a quiet bit of fun, he engages in it with enthusiasm, but not in a manner that calls attention to it. This winter for a time he swapped a squeal for a hockey stick. Smitty wishes to enter the field of forestry, ■—- it should prove a fascinating study. Best o’ luck, Smitty. Hockey 4, Band 1-2-3, Orchestra 1-2-3-4, Oskey 4. LESTER STEWART 172 King Street Franklin, Mass. “LES” “It is the quiet worker who succeeds.” Unobtrusive and keeping well in the background, Les is a quiet lad. He makes good progress in his classes, especially in sciences and mathematics. Although he is well up in his studies, Les doesn’t stay in the house all day pondering over homework. He also takes part in athletics. Les has his future all planned out. His intentions are to find some type of work in the summer and in the fall to enter some technical school which teaches Diesel engineering. In this course we know he will prove his mettle.

VIRGINIA MARGARET SWEENEY 137 East Central Street Franklin, Mass. “GINNY” “A merry heart maketh a joyful countenance.” ‘‘The girl with the cheery laugh” applies to one person in par¬ ticular —- Ginny Sweeney. If anyone ever said anything wrong while Ginny was present, and she laughed, it was all right again. Several times that handy little laugh has gotten her into trouble, as anyone in English 4-A will testify, but just as easily, (this is the unusual part) it gets her out again. This all condenses to one simple thing: that anyone with Ginny’s smile, brains, and luck should go a long way — so we all wish you well, Ginny. Music 3, Dramatics 1-3, Marshal 4, Math Club 4.

Combining actions with words, he could send a whole class into gales of laughter without the least effort. In the Oskey Jubilee of 1935 Harold hid behind a huge false mustache and had the audience in stitches with his antics. Lid’s favorite sports are football and hockey in which he proved he had outstanding ability. F. H. S. loses a fine athlete and a good scholar when Harold graduates, but Franklin’s loss will be Bowdoin ' s gain. Football 1-2-3-4, Hockey 3-4, Junior Prom 3, Basketball 1-2, Marshal 1-2-3-4, Oskey 4.

" Lou is always rather quiet in school, but we know that under¬ neath this dignified mask of reserve she has some of the traditional pep of the average high school student. During her years here she has pursued mostly business subjects, in which she does herself credit. We like Lou for her friendliness and accommodating per¬ sonality. The teachers like her, also, because of her good behavior and her understanding of their difficult problems in trying to make pupils mind. May she continue in the same line and climb the ladder to success. French Club 1.

We always look for a smile from this quiet girl who does things without letting the whole world know about it. In cooking and sewing Mary was especially gifted, and we hear that she is trying hard to become a costume designer. May you be¬ come the Patou of our generation, Mary. In which case all your F. H.

Now we seldom see Ray when he isn ' t talking to a girL Do you blame the girls? Raymond s future is undecided, but we are sure that whatever he does he will succeed in it.

Call on Bob, for he certainly can beat the calfskin like a veteran. When this young man strikes the drum with his sticks, all the snares respond with a tingle and a uniform vibration. Maybe we ll be dancing to his rhythm one of these days. Good luck what¬ ever you do. Bob.

Jane showed great school spirit, attending all our school activities. She claims her hobby is dancing, and her appearance on the dance floor attests to the truth of this! Jinny’s ambition is to be a bookkeeper. Whoever employs her will be very fortunate, as she is always willing to help everyone and is a hard worker. We all wish her the best of luck in times to come.

" One of these deceiving chaps, Whitney is quiet and serious to all outward appearances, but is really capable of much fun-making. Whitney is girl-shy. We wonder why; for he has everything that girls go for. He’s probably saving up all this for future use. These backward boys sometimes blossom out in the roles of Clark Gables. So we must be careful of what we say about them. But seriously, Whitney is thinking of attending the School of Commercial Science after finishing High, and we are all sure that he will make good there. WALTER W.

Walt is one of our typical football heroes. He puts everything he has into his game and plays it well. He also knows how to please his fem¬ inine audiences. Walt’s plans as yet are undecide d but he probably will get a schol¬ arship to some college so he can play football there. Anyway, we wish him the best of luck in whatever he does.

Page Forty-Four SENIORS AS JUNIORS JUNIOR CLASS Class Htsfimj fyTE, THE CLASS OF 1936, entered High School on September 7, 1932, with one hundred and eighty-eight extremely excited and thrilled mem¬ bers, for this was the beginning of a new leaf in onr lives and we hoped from it to gain many joys. That day we were given such ordinary equipment as pencils, rulers, pens, and erasers, but that which aroused the greatest excite¬ ment was the homework. Now we felt that we had really grown up. How short-lived was our joy ! At the end of the next two weeks we had all forgotten how to be carefree and gay. The main object in each and every heart was, “Don’t let the upper¬ classmen know we are lost.” Miss Wiggin, after the first day, became our staunch friend, for she distinguished her room from the others by pinning a sign beside her door, a thing which saved us from taking stealthy glances about. CJ The first social event which we attended was the Freshman Acquaintance Party which the Seniors held in our honor. We were naturally anxious to make a pleasing impression and so tried to act sophisticated and calm, a state of mind which we certainly did not possess. Everything went well until the dancing began. At this point most of us sat down and watched the idolized upperclassmen. A few who were bolder tried their skill at this art, but the result only caused us to draw further into our shells. CJ The next incident which aroused our interest was the Hallowe’en party. On this occasion we had great fun although we were somewhat subdued after five or six insolent Seniors asked rather sarcastically if we had ever been told that children should be seen but not heard. We appeased our wrath, however, by stating our opinions of these bullies — after we had confirmed the fact that they were out of hearing. t]J Time went swiftly by, and it was not long before we gave the Thanksgiving assembly for the upperclassmen. Everyone had to admit that we did very well and thereafter we were treated with more respect. 1 Soon after Christmas the merchants noticed a sudden increase in the sale of pencils. Upon inquiring they discovered that the cause lay in the mid-year examinations that were being held at High School. When this week w r as over everyone but the merchant breathed a sigh of relief. Page Forty-Eight •I The school term came quickly to an end and we soon were full-fledged Sophomores. Now, we believed, life would again become bearable, for who¬ ever beard of hazing a Sophomore? We found, howeA er, that life was not “a boAvl full of cherries,” for the things we did when r e were Freshmen that Avere thought cunning iioav failed to amuse anyone, and Ave discovered the fact that as Sophomores Ave Avere more insignificant than ever. CJ This term Ave had a favorable representation in the athletic activities. Guy Emerson Avas established on the basketball and baseball teams, Vincent Mollov on the basketball team, and Ned Keefe on the football team. tj The Junior class, in order to unburden themselves of their financial diffi¬ culties, held a masquerade party which took the place of the annual HalloAV- e’en party. On this occasion everyone had a pleasant time, for, all being masked, no distinction could be made betAveen the pupils of upper and loAver classes. •J It Avas not long before Ave Avere the group Avhich composed the Junior class. Can you imagine horv contented Ave Avere? At length Ave had real responsibilities to care for. The folloAving officers were elected: Guy Emerson, President; Barbara GoAving, Vice President; Harold Talbot, Secretary; Ned Keefe, Treasurer. tj The subject of our class ring Avas brought forth early in the term and the folloAving committee Avas appointed to settle this matter: Barbara GoAving, Rae AtAvood, Patricia Cray, Eddie Robinson, and Dominick Pisano. The outstanding feature of this term Avas the Oskey Jubilee in which a large number from our class took part. It Avas held by the Senior class in order to locver the price of their year book. •I At last arrived the time for that gala event awaited with impatience by each Junior Class, the Junior Prom. The gymnasium Avas changed into a beautiful tropical scene, the result of the incentive of Mrs. Wight and the labors of ambitious members of the art class. •I We ended the socials of the school term Avith the usual outing at Lake Pearl when Ave were rewarded Avith free tickets by the Seniors for our toil as hosts in making the Junior Prom a success. •J In September, 1935, Ave entered High School, sophisticated Seniors Avhose number had diminished from 18S to 101. Hoav young and naive the Fresh- Page Forty-Nine a men seemed! It was difficult to realize that we had once occupied that position. Cfl The following- officers Avere elected: Barbara Gowing, President; Florence Martel, Vice President; Rae AtAvood, Secretary; Ned Keefe, Treasurer. 1 I cannot leave unmentioned the girls’ splendid basketball team which, under the skillful coaching of Miss Beane, ended its season undefeated. tj Several striving clubs were organized this year. Chief amongst them and particularly worthy of mention are the Commercial Club of the Shorthand Department, the Aeroplane Club of the Manual Training Department, and the Mathematics Club which Avas formed to aid Seniors of the college group Avho Avill be obliged to take examinations to gain entrance into college. •J Our school paper, “The Blue and White,” Avas again published by various English classes. It Avas printed by the Commercial group and sold for a nickel a copy. CJ On November 5, the Ray School, an old building where many of the Fresh¬ man classes Avere held, burned, causing a great deal of excitement and tumult amongst the students. Though none dared voice it. I am sure more than one pupil in his heart Avished it had been the High School that had caught fire, nor is it improbable that the same opinion Avas formed in the hearts of some of the teachers. HoAvever, everyone changed his opinion Avhen he saAv the great inconvenience the fire caused. CJ Noav Avith last-minute preparation for the year book, prom, and com¬ mencement exercises, our happy high school days are drawing rapidly to an end. ]J When Ave recover from the trance which has emvrapped us in the hustle and bustle of Commencement week, Ave shall find that Ave, the Class of 1936, have graduated from Franklin High, and again, as in 1932, Ave have turned over a neAv but far more important leaf in our lives. May it be filled Avith prosperity, success, and happiness for each and every one of us. Historian, PAFMA DeBAGGIS.

Page Sixty-Four 5 football r I ' HE Blue and White charges of Coach George Colbert, after an unim- A pressive beginning, wound up the 1935 campaign highly successful. The cause of the slow start was perhaps an inferiority complex carried over from the poor ' 34 season or a lack of cooperation. W hatever it was, there was will and effort enough present to pull the team out of the rut and to hit a winning- stride with an important 6-2 victory over a bitter rival, “North.” The neces¬ sary confidence gained by this victory led to more teamwork, consequently a better all-around defense and offense. i Easily tipping over Shrewsbury and Scituate, the team reached its peak with a polished rout over a heavy Stoughton team. The W r alpole game, the final of the season, Avas anything but a washout, although it did pour and the score ended 0-0. Comparatively feathenveight against the W A alpole team, Franklin showed the greater speed and drive on the wet field throughout the game. Its running attack was more consistent, due in part to the fine work of the linesmen in opening holes. t][ The coolheadedness and experience of Capt. Ned Keefe in the center of the line was a telling factor in the eventual success of the team. •J Conspicuous throughout every game was the aggressiveness and speed of Eddie Robinson, diminutive quarterback. Just as noticeable was the charging line-bucking of Louis “War Horse” Brunelli. tj The kicking department was ably handled on the feet of Tom McMenemy and Hal Talbot. Capt.-elect Marchand, flashy ground-gainer, completed the backfield. •I Heading the list of those unheralded linesmen who were continually making tackles and opening holes Avere Leo Marchand, Johnny Pasquantonio, Wally Willert, and Tony Masi.

The team was at all times a potential threat, but some¬ times very erratic. Coach Colbert had only Captain “Fran” Crothers, star guard, who was shifted to a forward position, and “Mutt” Mollov, sensational forward, of last year’s team, on hand. However, he worked John Pasquan- tonio, a clever center, Tom McMenemy, a high-scoring guard, and Nick Rossetti, a good defensive guard, into a smooth passing combination that was too strong for the opposing teams to cope with when the boys were clicking.

The boys on the squad, under the direction of Coach Doherty, worked in¬ dustriously constructing the rink. Even if the rink served for only two games, many students used it during the lunch hour and at leisure time. tj Among the members of the team. Captain Eddie Robinson was high scorer on the hard-fighting first line which included Harold Talbot and Leo Marchand. Guy Emerson and Charlie Marchand at the defence positions performed very capably, playing a hardchecking, fast skating game. Ed Caron in the nets was outstanding, making many sensational stops as well as playing a heady game. Scott, Mostek, Garneau, and Burnett, underclassmen, saw much service and should provide the nucleus for a strong team next year. tfl The two games found the team defeating Dedham High School, 3-2, and playing a 2-2 tie with Dean Academy. Page Sixty-Seven Baseball SQUAD of thirty players answered Coach Colbert’s call for baseball can- didates, but, after two weeks of strenuous practice, the squad was cut to twenty players, most of whom have had experience playing under the colors of the Blue and White. tj Of the pitchers, Co-Capt. H. Fales, P. Erler, P. Messere, aided by the ex¬ cellent relief-work of Thompson, have turned in five victories and one tie. We were forced to accept a 6-6 tie with North Attleboro, when the game was called ofif because of darkness, although the Blue and White were ahead 9-6 at the time. tj A team of hard hitters, combined with capable defensive work and the shrewd gui dance of Coach Colbert, is expected to give Franklin High its best baseball team in several years.

HPHIS year the girls’ basketball team proved that it had been exceptionally well-trained by! its coach. Miss A. Beane, by winning every one of its eight games and by piling up a season’s total score of 235 to its opponents’ 86. 1 The season started January 17 when the girls met Wrentham in a hard battle and won in the last few minutes with a 14-10 score. This close game; instead of dampening the g-irls’ spirits, seemed to give them a much-needed spurt which they showed by defeating Attleboro a few days later with a score of 37-6. They also easily defeated Medway and Dean. But all of their skill was in demand in the return game with Attleboro. It was a wonderfully hard and fierce-fought game but they finally rallied strongly and won, 17-9. The second team also remained undefeated during the entire season, and it is certain that they will make good first team material next year, as all but two of the first team are graduating this year. It is firmly hoped that these underclassmen will follow the example of their 1936 Championship sisters.

With Mr. Ames as their leader and inspiration, its members faith¬ fully strove to increase their talent and render worthwhile music. As in former times they assisted at high school parties and assemblies, and at one or two Alden Club meetings. Especially talented members played in programs of other societies and clubs. 1 The orchestra found time, too, to assist the Walpole orchestra with their concert and annual operetta. These friends, under the direction of Mr. Morse, in turn assisted at our concert. By this friendship both organizations were bettered and more valuable work accomplished. Page Seventy-Two (J The annual concert, given in April, was acclaimed by all a complete suc¬ cess, A special feature of this excellent concert was the Concerto in G Minor by Mendelssohn, rendered by Joseph Bissanti, pianist, accompanied by the complete orchestra.

Page Seventy-Three jSfettfr r I ' HIS year for the first time girls were allowed to be members of the Band, because the Faculty said that girls should have an equal chance, and be¬ cause many girls were interested in the Band. For some unknown reason the number of boys increased after the girls joined. For the past two years the Band has been invited to play on a boat trip to Provincetown. This year, owing to their good work, the Band has been in¬ vited on two such trips. | The Band is self-supporting, meaning that when they need new instru¬ ments or supplies they pay for them out of their own earnings. Only last year did the School Committee buy new instruments for the Band, and the Band appreciates it very much. THE MEMBERS OF THE BAND ARE: A. Brown. T. Parsons, R. Ralston, H. Temple, A.

The club is composed of thirty girls including Seniors. The students much enjoyed the musical assembly in which the Glee Club took part. Among the pieces the girls have sung this year are “The Rosary,” “Just A-Wearying for You,” “O, Solo Mio,” and “The Kerry Dance.” The girls are working very hard on “The Kerry Dance” in preparation for Class Day Exercises.

Page Seventy-Five foiKe? in y RAMATICS are looked forward to with pleasure from the time a Fresh¬ man enters high school until he graduates as a Senior. One feels favored to attend “Doc’s” plays, but—to have a role, one is surely considered lucky. 1 During our Freshman year we were allowed to participate not only in the Thanksgiving assembly but also in one of the Hallowe’en plays. tj In our Sophomore year, the Dramatic Club was organized under the su¬ pervision of “Doc” Frazer. Two of the offices went to our class, (Rae At¬ wood, Ruth Mackenzie) although we were still considered youngsters. The club presented “ ' [ ' he Bishop’s Candlesticks,” “A Friend of the Family,” and at Christmas, “Why the Chimes Rang,” the story of a peasant boy who gave his offering. Some of our class had parts in all these. 1 As Juniors we shared the burden of the Seniors to keep entertained the lower classmen on such occasions as the Freshman Acquaintance Party, the Hallowe’en Party, and the Christmas assembly. At the Hallowe’en Party, “Safety-Pins First” and “The Boob,” both comical plays, were presented, while at Christmas, “Sounding Brass” was the title of the appropriate drama. As the time drew near for the school play, “Big Hearted Herbert,” Victor Mourey and Edmund Keefe were the Juniors chosen for the cast. At last we were in the big things ! This year, our Senior year, we gave “Bett’s Best Bet” at the Freshman Acquaintance Party. What a girl Victor Mourey makes, (with a wig) ! But he isn’t the only one who can masquerade, for at the Hallowe’en Party there was presented “Bridge and Poker” in which four boys and four girls changed places. For a more sober play “Doc” chose “A Night in an Inn” and did Ed¬ ward Woloski shine ! At the Christmas assembly “The Music Box” was very successfully presented. •J ' Hie Senior play, to be presented during Commencement week, is to be a comedy, and its title will be “Tons of Money.” Page Seventy-Six J Ine aitfr (With apologies to Milton) Haste thee, nymph, and bri ng with thee Tales of youthful revelry, Puns and pranks and stories, too, Notes on what some classes do, Tunes which do insinuate How with others we seem to rate.

The following officers were elected for the year: President — Reta Johnson Vice President—-Constance Revell Secretary — Alberta Nealer Treasurer — Isabella Snyder A constitution was drawn up, and meetings are held once a month. Dur¬ ing the fall term a Bridge Social was given with two teachers from the Busi¬ ness Department as instructors. Before the Christmas vacation a party was held, to which several mem¬ bers of the faculty were invited. A small fir tree was decorated; under this presents were found for all. The Commercial Club is planning to sponsor two or three more inter¬ esting events to finish up a successful year. Page Seventy-Seven ®Jjc Hmtre JztmxmmtB (Club T HE Home Economics Club was formed this year under the supervision of Miss Doris Hathaway, head of the Domestic Science Department. The Club was founded to promote the study of home economics and of recreational behavior, such as etiquette for all occasions, serving of luncheons and teas, out-of-door parties, picnics and travel. A great amount cf prac¬ tical work, including knitting, cutwork, crocheting, various types of embroidery, and novelties were accomplished by the members. A tea was given at one of the meetings. Other meetings were devoted to fcod demonstrations, sections from Emily Post and book reviews on Anne Morrow Lindbergh’s popular work, ’’North to the Orient.’’ Travel etiquette was emphasized, as the entire club, at the end of the year, plans a trip to Boston in which they will practice the points they have learned since the formation of the club. 9J This is the first year that the club has been organized and we know that in the years to follow it will be one of the outstanding dubs of the school. The officers installed for the year were: President, Ruth Dowling, and Treasurer, Caroline Muccello. J trplmt£ (Club T HE Airplane Club was formed under the direction of Mr. Rodgers. Meetings have been held every Monday at 2:45 at the High School. Charter members of the Club are as follows: Archie Howell. Jr., Howard Redpath, Clinton Jacks, Lawrence Clark, Dante Innocente, William Blanchard, and George Sommers. Officers were elected as follows: Howard Redpath, Commander Archie Howell, Jr., Captain Clinton Jacks, Sergeant-at-Arms Models are built at the club meetings and during spare time at home and are tested as to -their flying ability on the grounds at the rear of the school. The Club affiliated with the Junior Birdmen of America, and in honor of the deceased Francis Cote of this town, it was named the “Francis Cote Honorary Flight Squadron No. 1055,’’ and a charter was obtained. Members of the Club intend to participate for the local honors of the Boston Wing. (iHatlj Qllitb T HIS year, to meet the demand of students taking College Entrance Examinations of one kind or another, Mr. Doherty very kindly suggested that we form a club. So that the work could be carried on if Mr. Doherty was busy, officers were elected as follows: President, E. Robinson; Vice-President, W. Winters; Secretary, P. DcBaggis. The work consisted of a general review in algebra and geometry and a study of College Board problems. The members of the club greatly appreciate the review, and many thanks go to Mr. Doherty for helping us so willingly. Page Seventy-Eight roahrast of 1936 The time came during our senior year when we decided to put on a mus¬ ical show for the benefit of the Oskey. 1935 was the first year a show of this type had been put on. We decided that we would try to repeat the first suc¬ cess. 1 he show, called the “Oskey Talent Broadcast of 1936,” went on under the direction of Nick Kirikos. A large variety of musical numbers and un¬ known talent was brought before the “Mike.” With the help of Doc Frazer the show went off successfully, showing to a capacity crowd of interested people. All the musical parts were amplified by a microphone placed on the stage, this fact carrying out the idea of a real radio broadcast. Page Seventy-Nine Page Eighty Compliments of DONALD B.
