On May 4th a huge parade, consisting of all the school children of Franklin, led by the High School Band, was held. Appropriate exercises were held at the Horace Mann Memorial Tablet. Plays depicting incidents in the life of Horace Mann were broadcast over the radio and were also presented before the State Prin¬ cipals Association at Framingham. Members of the Senior Class took the principal parts in these plays. FRANKLIN HIGH SCHOOL RAY SCHOOL Freshman Buildin Gilbert C (B. c £atty INDIANA STATE TEACHERS COLLEGE B.S. TRI-STATE COLLEGE B.PD.

FRAZER Harvard and Hyannis Summer Schools SUB-MASTER — PHYSICS — CHEMISTRY — DRAMATICS Here is the teacher who has won the admiration and respect of his many students and associates by skilled teaching and directing of dramatics.

DORIS M. HATHAWAY Framingham Teachers College B.S. HOME ECONOMICS What would our school be like without Miss Hathaway ' s happy disposition which makes her classes so pleasant! MARION E. HOLMES Boston University A.B. ENGLISH One of the best-natured teachers in our school, Miss Holmes has won the hearts of the pupils by her charming personality. Page fourteen MARIE C.

Page Fifteen i MARION LITTLEFIELD Bates College A.B., Boston University LATIN — ENGLISH — PENMANSHIP Miss Littlefield is one of our best friends and knows both our faults and (rather doubtful) virtues. Whatever subjects we study with her she inspires us to do our best. MRS. MARIE RILEY Dean Academy, Boston University Summer School SUPERVISOR OF MUSIC The Glee Club has prospered this year under the expert tutelage of Mrs. Riley. JOHN F. RODGERS Fitchburg Teachers College MANUAL TRAINING Students with mechanical ability find an able instructor in Mr. Rodgers who has a congenial and understanding nature. ALICE WIGGIN Hyannis Teachers College, Radcliffe College A.B., Boston University and Harvard Summer Schools ENGLISH I hroughout the years Miss Wiggin’s helpful and under¬ standing nature has aided the students through many diffi¬ culties. Sound reasoning power and an understanding and appreciation of literature are only a few of the valuable assets one gains from her classes. Page Sixteen MRS. IRENE K. WIGHT Massachusetts School of Art SUPERVISOR OF DRAWING Mrs. Wight is always willing to cooperate with the students. Her help which was given to the yearbook staff was greatly appreciated by the Seniors. JVckttofHehgmmis Editors take this opportunity to thank all those who gave so generously and willingly of their time and ability to make this, the 1937 “Oskey,” possible. The various committees have our appreciation for the work which they accomplished. Especially do we wish to thank Miss Wiggin for the kind help she has given to us in advising and correcting. To all others who con¬ tributed in any way to our year book we extend our sincere gratitude.

He again has shown his school spirit by often participating in various social functions held by his class. The gay and slick Lawrence ' s favorite pastime is dancing, and his stepping has earned him the title of " Best Boy Dancer.” He is headed for Massachusetts State where he plans to enter the field of medicine. With him go the best wishes of the class. Marshal 2, 3, 4. President Senior Class 4 . Hallowe’en Party 1, 2, 3, 4. Ring Committee 3. Junior Prom 3. Oskey Jubilee 4. Dramatics 1, 3, 4. Oskey Staff 4. Freshman Paper Editor-in-chief 1. Vice President OLINDO PAUL MARTELLO 17 Howard Street Franklin, Mass. “WILLIAM” “BILL” “WILLIE” ”Music is to the mind as air to the body.” William is certainly a versatile member of our class. An accom¬ plished pianist, he gave much of his time and talent to musical productions of the school. Popular among his classmates, he was elected vice-president of the class in both his Junior and Senior years. The class appreciated his fine work on the literary staff of the year book. May he continue to be as successful in the future as he has been during his years in High School. Vice President 3, 4. Orchestra 1, 2, 3, 4. Oskey Jubilee 2, 3, 4. Dramatics 1, 4. Italian Club 4, Page Twenty Secretary MARGARET LYONS 2 Charlotte Court Franklin, Mass. “PEG” “She never seems out of smiles.” “Peg” was one of the best-natured of our classmates. She was always ready with a “wise-crack” or a smile. “Peg” seems to have a great supply of smiles, and we are sure they will last her a lifetime. As secretary of the Senior Class, she proved most efficient, and we know that she will be equally efficient as secretary to any organization. Keep on smiling, “Peg,” and the whole world will smile with you. Class Secretary 4. Blue and White 4. Junior Prom Committee 3. Hallowe’en Committee 1, 4. Marshal 2, 3. Christmas Ball 4. Year Book 4. Salutatorian. Treasurer EDWARD PETER JOHNSON 151 East Central Street Franklin, Mass. “EDDIE” “A little nonsense now and then. Is relished by the best of men.” Here’s our Editor-in-chief, a boy to whom goes the entire credit for so splendid a publication. “Eddie” is one of those people who seems to get along with anyone, whatever the occa¬ sion may be, for his enviable personality “puts him over in a big way.” Edward was a constant worker for his class, and as a token of appreciation was elected Senior Class Treasurer, a position that he filled most competently. A participant of sports, “Eddie” was also a willing worker for the social activities. What Edward’s plans for the future are, we know not, but we’re sure that he ' ll succeed in whatever he undertakes. Oskey 4. Year Book 4. Treasurer 4. Football 4. Junior Prom 3. Dramatics 4.

Page Twenty-One MARION ADAMS 89 Dean Avenue Franklin, Mass. “Happiness is from within, not from without With her quiet, good-natured personality, Marion found her way into the hearts of her classmates. Her artistic ability was greatly appreciated whenever she so willingly offered her invalu¬ able talent. Marion was a member of the Glee Club and will cer¬ tainly be missed by its members with whom she was well- acquainted. Marion’s ability for art leads us to believe that she will excel in that field. Glee Club 4. Commercial Club 4. Blue and White 4. Year Book. Oskey 4. Hallowe’en 1. RUTH LILLIAN ALLEN 40 Plain Street Caryville, Mass. “GIGGLES” “Graceful and useful in all she does.’’ She is rightly named! You can look into Ruthie’s big. brown eyes and see that she is about to burst into a giggle. She hails from that big city of Caryville which sends so many pretty girls to Franklin High. As a very efficient associate editor of the “Blue and White,” Ruthie helped to make it a great success. Next year will probably find Ruth in an office, if her business ability foretells correctly. Don ' t you envy Ruthie ' s employer? Let ' s hope that she will have sufficient good humor to last her through life. Commercial Club 4. Marshal 4. Blue and White 4. MARY ARLENE BAKER 60 Winter Street Franklin, Mass. “LENA” “Every man can seek acquaintance, But friends happen. " “Lena’’ is always ready to enjoy some fun with her pals. She is well-liked by all her classmates. As a student librarian, she aided in keeping an efficient system in the school library. She was also an interested worker in the Home Economics Club. With such promising ability Arlene will, no doubt, greatly enjoy her future. Marshal 4. Library Staff 4. Secretary of Home Economics Club. RITA F. BARTOLOMEI 36 Hutchinson Street Franklin, Mass. “RI” “YOUNGSTER” To look at Rita, one might think she was a very quiet young lady, but looks are deceiving, and “Bart ' s” case is no rare excep¬ tion. When she gets on the basketball floor she certainly can hold her own. She was a speedy forward and helped her team in gaining victories. Rita, despite her apparent bashfulness, was known and liked by all. These pleasing characteristics make us feel that she is bound to succeed in whatever she decides to undertake.

Page Twenty-Two ALICE CHARLOTTE BISHOP Spring Street Franklin, Mass. “YUMMY” “Small of stature, quick of wit.” Alice ' s desire is to become an instructor of Domestic Science, an art in which she excelled in High School. Whenever there was need for someone to portray the role of a younger child in a play, Alice could always be depended upon to do a good job. Her shortness of stature has been advantageous in more than one way, and her good nature has made her well- known. Here ' s hoping Alice fulfills her desire to become a Domestic Science Teacher. Dramatics 1, 2, 3, 4. Marshal 4. Oskey 4. MARTIN HENRY BROGAN 58 West Central Street Franklin, Mass. “BROC” “MARTY” “Let Nature be your teacher.” Though Martin was not seen in the limelight very much, he has been a good student of Franklin High for his entire four years. Apparently, from his English themes, ‘‘Broc” has a liking for outdoor sports, hunting, fishing, etc. Perhaps that accounts for his absence from social activities. However, Martin greatly aided the production of the Minstrel Show which was given in our Senior Year. Martin is fond of sports, and he became a member of the foot¬ ball team. We wish him a happy future. Oskey 3, 4. Football 4. Band 2, 3. Hallowe’en Committee 1. AUSTIN BROWN, JR. Union Street Franklin, Mass. “BROWNIE” “Bright as a ray of sunshine.” “Brownie’’ has always been a winner of hearts. Who wouldn ' t be, with such a personality as his? For four years he has been a rambling Romeo, seldom seen without a Juliet. “Brownie” is rhythmically inclined and proved his worth in the musical organizations and the school dance orchestra to which he and his stirring trumpet notes were a great asset. A more friendly and sociable chap can rarely be seen, and this will, with¬ out a doubt, be a help in his success. The best wishes of the class are with you, ‘“Brownie!” Band 1, 2, 3, 4. Orchestra 1, 2, 4. Marshal 1, 2, 3. Marshal Capt. 3. RAYMOND BROWN Emmons Street Franklin, Mass. “RAY” “On their own merits modest men are dumb.” “ Ray’s” ambition is to become an automobile expert. He has started to fulfill it already, for he is employed, in his spare time, at a local garage. This isn’t work for “ Ray” — it’s a pleasure. As a good-natured, ambitious, hard-worker, “ Ray” is certain to become a " polished” automobile expert. Here’s hoping you “shine,” “Ray!” Page Twenty-Three CLEMENT BRUNELLI 18 Moore Avenue Franklin, Mass. “CLEM” “A friend when friends are needed most.” Clement has that Robert Taylor appearance, for with his wavy, black hair, inviting black eyes, and cheery smile, he is always in demand. ‘‘Clem’’ was a staunch hockey player, and he added much to several victories won by the team. Clement was one of the three male ‘‘office girls” in his Senior year, but nevertheless proved a favorite with his classmates. Hockey 1, 2, 3. Christmas Ball 4. Commercial Club 4. Marshal 4. Blue and White 4. DAVID BULLUKIAN 64 Cottage Street Franklin, Mass. “DAVEY” ‘‘Happy am 7 , from care I’m free. Why can ' t the others be like me?” David is that type of boy who, after his absence for several years, astonished those who had known him previously. “Davey” left us soon after our graduation from Junior High School, and he didn’t join us until early this year. David proved to be a " go getter” soon after he got acquainted with the members of our class and participated in any activity he was asked to. Another surprise David had in store for ' , us was his dancing ability, for David is a true dancer. So to David go the best wishes for a bright and happy future. Baseball 1, 2. Basketball 1, 2. DALE JARED BUTTERWORTH Washington Street Franklin, Mass. “DB” ‘‘Tall as he may be He never overlooks courtesy.” It must be Dale’s personality and tall physique that makes him ever popular with his classmates and faculty. Dale always en¬ joyed a good joke — even one that was played on him. Genial, good-looking, and a favorite with everyone, Dale will prove an asset to Maine University which he plans to attend upon High School Graduation. Best of luck to the best of boys! Band 2, 3, 4. Orchestra 1, 2, 3. Oskey Jubilee 4. Hockey 3. Horace Mann Plays 4. Marshal 3, 4. EVELYN ELIZABETH COMOLLI 234 Lincoln Street Franklin, Mass. “EVIE” ‘‘A nymph of healthiest hue.” “Evie” was always on the go and attended all social affairs and games during her years in high school. She was voted the best dressed girl in the Senior class and deservingly so, for she was up to the minute on the Modes of The Moment. An interested worker in all the activities she was in, we feel sure she will succeed in whatever she intends to do after gradua¬ tion. Good luck, Evelyn! Glee Club 4. Commercial Club 4. Home Economics Club 4. Blue and White 4. Year Book 4. Marshal 4. Page Twenty-Four LUCILLE PAUL COSTELLO 14 High Street Franklin, Mass. “LUE” ‘“Mirth, with thee I choose to live.” Lucille has been one of the best-liked girls in school. She could generally be found in Miss Wiggin s room where her motley crowd quartered. Happy-go-lucky, " Lue " was seldom in school at 8:25, but usually came strolling in after the morning exer¬ cises. Her main interests seemed to be the 3rd and 4th periods, both classes conducted by Mr. DePasqua. As for the future, which is to be Framingham Teachers’ College, we wish you good luck, Lucille, and may fortune be quick to smile on you. Dramatics 1, Junior Prom Committee 3. Year Book 4. Marshal 4. Oskey 4. Glee Club 3. Bicycle Club 2. Art Committee 4. JAMES COREY Ruggles Street Franklin, Mass. “JIMMY” ‘‘A kinder friend has no man.” “Jimmy” had a secret passion of writing poems — many times to accommodate the fairer sex. His mild and pleasing manner has w n over many friends for him, and he always got along well with his teachers. “Jimmy” always was willing to “get in " on a good joke, and his sense of humor helped him greatly. He has always been ambitious and a hard worker. With such amiable qualities, how can he help but succeed? Marshal 4. Hallowe’en Party 1, 4. BERNICE CRANDALL 219 Union Street Franklin, Mass. “BERNIE” ‘‘Grand to be merry and wise.” Bernice is a small girl, but what she lacks in quantity she makes up in quality. Whenever there was good fun on hand, “Bernie ' ’ was right on hand also; but never did the atmosphere lose a speck of heat by her presence, rather the temperature went up a few degrees. A dance was Bernice’s joy. Who wouldn ' t like to dance when one had all “Bernie’s” partners? We don’t know what she is going to do, but here’s loads of luck to you, “Bernie.” Oskey Jubilee 2, 3, 4.

CROTHERS Dean Avenue Franklin, Mass. “VENUS” “CROWBAR” “Better late than never.” Never did a rule apply more perfectly than does this rule apply to Anne. But when she does arrive! Never a dull moment exists when this dynamo starts to generate. Anne’s a combination of pep, humor, wit, and all the qualities that accompany them. If you see a crowd of merrymakers, then without a doubt, the instigator is “Crowbar.” We don’t know what Anne intends to do when she graduates, but we know whatever she goes after — she ' ll get!

Whenever she had that basketball in her possession, she was sure to toss it through the hoop. She was elected Captain of the Varsity Squad in her Senior Y ear. " Mae” certainly proved her ability and is recognized by all as a real sport and a good, all-around student. May success be yours in whatever you undertake. " Good luck, Mae!” Basketball 1, 2, 3, 4.

MARION PEARL DAVIS 4 Summer Street Franklin, Mass. ”Knowledge is power.” Marion has always been one of the outstanding students of our class. She was voted the most promising Senior girl, and Marion well deserves the title, for she is one of the best students in the class. Marion ' s favorite pastime was receiving and distributing the latest ' news” with her pal, ”Lu” Costello —- a habit which often got them into " hot water” with the teachers and resulted in session. Marion intends to continue her studies at Radcliffe. and we hope that she will succeed as well as she has in High School. Dramatics 1. Junior Prom Committee 3. Tennis 4. Bicycle Club (Secretary). Basketball 1. QUINTINA DeBAGGIS 37 Uncas Avenue Franklin, Mass. “QUINTA” ‘‘Good nature and good sense are her companions.” Full of pep and ready for any activity suggested —- that’s “Quinta.” She has excelled in sports for three years, but an attack of appendicitis made it impossible for her to continue during her Senior year. Her good nature and fine personality make us think she will succeed in future life. " Qu inta” plans to attend a Physical Education School after she graduates, and we certainly wish her every possible success. Basketball 1, 2, 3. Track 1, 2, 3. Hallowe’en Committee 4. Mar¬ shal 3. Christmas Ball 4. Blue and White 4. Commercial Club 4. Oskey 4. ELENA ANTONETTE DeNAPOLI 136 Washington Street Franklin, Mass. “EL” “BLONDIE” ‘‘Peace is rarely denied to the peaceful.” “El” is one of those deceiving ferns — quiet, serious to all outward appearances, but really capable of as much fun-making as anyone else. " El” never had much to say, and she always took a back seat, not because she couldn’t do things, but because she was very quiet and extremely bashful. She speaks few times and very few words, but when she does, she is worth listening to. Basketball 1. Track 1. Commercial Club 4. Page Twenty-Six MAVIS E. DUFRESNE Centre Street Bellingham, Mass. “DUFFY” “A blithe heart makes a blooming visage. " Mavis represents the best example of what a South Bellingham girl should be. She has offered her talents as a violinist to the orchestra for the full time she spent in high schocl. Studious and good-natured, Mavis was well liked by all her classmates. Certainly what this world needs is more girls like Mavis. Orchestra 1, 2, 3, 4. Prom Committee 3. Ring Committee. Oskey Committee 4. ORLANDO T. DiPIETRO 19 Mechanic Street Bellingham, Mass. “PETE” “Small but Mighty.” Orlando gives the added " zip " to every class he attends, and his daring exploits will long be remembered by the feminine group. The honors of the High School Band may be well shared by Orlando, for what would the band be like without his " tooter?” With engineering as his goal, he is bound to succeed. Band 1, 2, 3, 4. Hockey 3. IDA ROBERTA ESTES Scott Hill Road Bellingham, Mass. “LEFTY” “ Work a little, play a little. " Ida is one of our best-liked classmates. Whenever anyone of us was “stuck " on a Math, or Science problem we always went to Ida and she patiently helped us to see the light, (although at times it was pretty dim). She was a fine musician in both the band and orchestra. Ida’s cheerful and amiable nature will certainly prove a great help in future years. Orchestra 1, 2, 3, 4. Band 3, 4. Glee Club 1, 2. Junior Prom 3. FLORENCE E. FEELEY 140 East Central Street Franklin, Mass. “IRISH” “LIZ” " Aye, Every inch a Queen.” A girl who has done much for the school is Florence. In re¬ gard to character, she is unselfish, full of fun, and an exponent of fair play. Much of the success of the Oskey Minstrel Show was due to the able direction of “Irish.” A willing worker, “Liz " generally succeeded in whatever she sought. For her voca¬ tion, she has chosen Children’s Nursing, and most of us are glad that second childhood isn’t far away. Dramatics 1, 4. Glee Club 1, 3, 4. Marshal 1, 3. Junior Prom 3.

Probably he intends to “go West, young man.” Eston also is a fine musician; he can smear a mean trombone in the Band. “Prof " has a mathematical mind and intends to go to Bentley School of Accounting. We hope you get your figures straight, Eston. Band 1, 2, 3, 4. Orchestra 3. Marshal 1, 2, 3, 4. Hockey 2, 3, 4. Blue and White 2, 3. Oskey Finance Committee 4. Junior Prom 3. Freshman Committee 4.

WALTER RAYMOND FRESN 8 Charlotte Court Franklin, Mass. “WALT” “Music hath charms to soothe the savage beast.” When “Brownie ' s Swing Band " got started, our class realized that we had an accomplished saxophonist amongst us, for Walter certainly can make that sax sing. We all knew “Walt” to be a violinist, but never a saxophone player. Walter, always a will¬ ing helper, served on many committees during his four years in High School and was a member of the band and orchestra for the four years. These two organizations are losing an able worker by losing Walter. Oskey 2. Marshal 1. Band 1, 2, 3, 4. Orchestra 1, 2, 3, 4. HARVEY W. GARNEAU Mann Street Bellingham, Mass. “His wit and brilliance we can see. And a more true sport could never be.” A roar of laughter down the hall, and Harvey is in the midst of the crowd. Harvey’s remarkable personality and sense of humor rank him among the best, for no class meeting was com¬ plete without his philosophical and witty pointers. His athletic ability has been recognized by all, and his extreme courage banishes the fear of “bone busters.” Harvey ' s greatest ambition is to become a second Will Rogers, and we all wish him success in his future undertakings. Hockey 2, 3, 4. Baseball 2, 3, 4. Football 3, 4. Oskey Jubilee 4. GINA A. GIANARDI 40 Hutchinson Street Franklin, Mass. “Still water runs deep. " Gina has broken all records for attendance during her years in the public schools. She has been neither absent nor tardy during this time. If she retains this habit of punctuality throughout her life, she will succeed, we are sure. Gina is one of the quietest girls in the class, but has a pleasing personality which her intimate friends have discovered. Good luck. Gina, and may Lady Luck knock at your door. French Club 1. Italian Club 4. Track 1, 2. page Twenty-Eight ROY FRANCIS HANCOCK Chestnut Street Franklin, Mass. “ROY” “His quietness of manner belies the mischief that lies beneath.” Roy’s name is synonymous with “good sport,” for Roy cer¬ tainly is one person who is eternally optimistic and cheerful. Even though Roy is bashful and quiet, when he dees speak, he says something worth while. Roy has cruised among us for four years, creating no great stir, but nevertheless his presence was enjoyed by all. Band 1, 2, 3, 4. Baseball 2, 3, 4. Oskey 4. MARY WARE HARLOW Main Street Norfolk, Mass. “BANJO” “Quietly she goes her way, Doing the right thing every day.” Mary was popular for her excellent ability in playing her violin. We know that after having been in the orchestra for four years, she certainly will be missed. She is also quite an accomplished actress, and she appeared in many productions given by the class. Whether she goes into the world of music or chooses other lines of endeavor, we wish her every possible success. Marshal 4. Christmas Ball 4. Dramatics 4. Oskey Jubilee 4. Or¬ chestra 1, 2, 3, 4. Class Historian 4. Year Book 4. Horace Mann Play 4. Social Committee 4. DOROTHY GERTRUDE HARRIS 48 Summer Street Franklin, Mass. “DOTTY” “PERIOD” “Her cheery smiles and sparkling eyes Make many friends where affection lies.” “Dotty,” with such charm as she possesses, really needs no introduction, for her wide interests and ability in social and class affairs have ranked her among the most popular. However, here she is — the brown-eyed, fun-loving lass, with whom there is never a dull moment. Dancing and dramatics hold a great attraction for Dorothy, and she did her share in their pursuit. Such an efficient, friendly girl can’t help being a success. Marshal 3, 4. Glee Club 3. Dramatics 4. Hallowe’en Committee 1, 4. Freshman Committee 4. Junior Prom 3. Year Book 4. Social Com¬ mittee 4.

HERBERT AUSTIN KENYON Beech Street Franklin, Mass. “HERBIE” “An honest man is the noblest work of God.” Quiet and studious, Herbert is one of our classmates who does things silently and efficiently. When any of his classmates got into difficulty over a Chemistry or Physics problem, it was Herb to the rescue. As for Herbert’s future plans, we’re all confident that they’ll be successful. Page Twenty-Nine VINCENT PATRICK KIERNAN Pearl Street Franklin, Mass. “VINNIE” “I’m going to dance mg wag to Heaven When “Vinnie” came to F. H. S. from Caryville, he easily made a large circle of friends. Numbered among these friends there are sure to be many dancers, for Vincent ' s pastime is dancing. The fact that he is not heard often does not prove a quality of shyness. Among friends, Vincent is popular, possess¬ ing a pleasing personality. We hope that “Vinnie” continues to dance and perhaps become a second Fred Astaire. MARENA LOUISE KINGMAN 185 Chestnut Street Franklin, Mass. “MARTY” “The dags of our gouth are the dags of our glorg.” Nonchalance is one of Marena’s outstanding characteristics. As a very studious girl, Marena always received very high marks. She was associated with several clubs, and she was well-known among her fellow-students. As treasurer of the Italian Club, she proved most efficient. May success accompany Marena all the days of her life. Italian Club 4. Commercial Club 4. Home Economics Club 4. Glee Club 3, 4.

PIPINA KIRIKOS 67 Union Street Franklin, Mass. “PINA” “PEANUT” “Silence is golden.” Pipina’s apparent reticence is merely a deceiving characteristic, for in reality “Pina” is a very friendly and likeable girl, who excels in Domestic Science. She is envied by many friends for her calmness. May her silent but sturdy nature guide her future successfully. Home Economics Club 4. HENRY JOSEPH LUDWIN 33 Cross Street Franklin, Mass. “HANK” “Quiet is of me no friend. Give me noise without end.” If at any time in the corridor or classroom you distinguish a deep, animated voice suggestive of “Cab Calloway,” be assured that it is Henry. “Hank” has done his part for athletics by attending to the gate returns. Henry ' s future seems bright, for along with being a constant, untiring worker with an ever- willing spirit, he is an excellent trombone and piano player. Class Prophecy 4. Marshal 2, 4.

He was very popular with the stu¬ dents and was elected President of the class in his Junior year. In his Senior year, “Charlie " captained both the football team and the Marshals.

LEO PHILIP MARCHAND Centre Street Bellingham, Mass. “LEO” “Shy at first, but a good sport when known.” Leo combines his abilities as a scholar and an athlete in an ideal manner. His quick-thinking on the ball field saved many a game. He must have done some quick-thinking in class too, judging from the marks he gets. Although he has kept his future a secret, a “regular fellow " like Leo is bound to hit the mark he aims for. Baseball 1, 2, 3, 4 (Captain). Football 3, 4. Hockey 2, 3, 4. Marshal 1, 4. Junior Prom 3.

Even though he is quiet in school, he is known to hit the spot in outside activities. Keeping with the spirit of the South Bellingham “gang, " “Art " has made himself prominent in the line of sports, namely football and baseball, and has been a letter man throughout his sport career. Football 4. Baseball 4. Hockey 2, 4. Marshal 1, 2, 4. Basketball 4. RAYMOND F. McKENNA 299 West Central Street Franklin, Mass. “RAY” “MAC” “Never trouble trouble till trouble troubles you.” “Ray’s " motto is “Never trouble trouble till trouble troubles you.” He was always smiling, laughing, or telling jokes to his friends. He was never quiet in the classrooms and he spent a lot of his leisure time in session hall. “Ray " didn ' t go out for any sports, but he was seen at all the Basketball and Football games, supporting the teams. You could always hear him in the cheering section. We wish “Ray” every success in his life’s work. Page Thirty-One ANTHONY F. MOLECA 434 Lincoln Street Franklin, Mass. “SHORTY” " Honor lies in honest toil.” Anthony is one of the quiet members of the class, but beneath his reserve lies a good nature and a ready wit. Whenever a girl spoke to him, “Shorty” always blushed to the roots of his curly hair. _ . “Shorty’s” flashing smile made many friends for him, and if he retains this happy faculty of making friends, he is sure to reach his goal in this life. Football 4. DONALD MOLLOY 113 School Street Franklin, Mass. “DONNY” ‘‘Power to start, power to finish.” We predict that “Donny” will be strutting around in a “New York Yankees” uniform in the near future, for he certainly proved his ability on the baseball field. Not only was Donald a success on the diamond, but he also starred on the basketball court. Many a game was won in the closing minutes by “Don ' s” ability to come through “in the pinch.” Good-looking, good- natured, and an outstanding athlete, Donald should have a full measure of luck and success in the future. Basketball 1, 2, 3, 4. Baseball 3, 4. Football 2. DOROTHY MARIETTE MORSE 8 Hillside Road Franklin, Mass. “DOT” “DOTTIE” ‘‘Thought is nobler than speech.” A helping hand accompanied by a smile is “Dot ' s” menu of friendship which is well digested by all with whom she comes in contact. “Dot” is loyal, energetic and always willing to keep up the standing of the school by participating in social activities. Her favorite pastime between classes is walking with a certain friend. Who could that be? Dorothy’s presence in the band as a drummer will certainly be missed, for her role is an important one. May her happiness and good-will prevail in the future. Home Economics 4. Commercial Club 4. Blue and White 4. Band 3, 4.

Even though he hails from the distant town of Belling¬ ham, he nightly habitats the residential section of the Franklin maidens. Aside from his flirtations, “Wally” is a serious business student and intends to make good in that line. As for sports, he has shown some fast going in the Hockey Team and was one of the highest scorers. This is only one of the signs that he will reach his goal. Hockey 1, 2, 3. Commercial Club 4.

In his junior year he proved to be an excellent class treasurer. Stephen accomplished some fine work on the editorial staff of the year book. He was a “whiz” at Math, and Physics and one of the best all-around students in the class. His supply of knowl¬ edge is exceeded only by his sense of humor. “Steve” has his eye on Worcester Tech, and we all wish him the best of luck. Class Treasurer 3. Blue and White 3. Marshal 4.

Mary was full of life and active in sports. She was a member of the business class and tickled a typewriter with the best of them. We hope you are successful in the future, “Mae.” Track 2, 4.

He seemed to be continually " in Dutch” with the teachers. Whenever a discussion came up in class, ”A1” always managed to get in his " two cents worth.” Whatever the occasion he generally injected one or two of his famous wisecracks. Who knows? Perhaps some day ”A1” will surprise us and replace Jack Benny as radio ' s premiere comedian! VIRGINIA FRANCES RAYMOND 452 West Central Street Franklin, Mass. “GINGER” “Jest and youthful jollity.” This fair and jovial maiden is forever carefree and making her down-hearted pals gay.

We don ' t know what the future holds in store for him, but with him go our best wishes. MARION EVELYN RILEY 1114 West Central Street Franklin, Mass. “PAT” “None but the brave deserve the fair.” Marion has distinguished herself amongst her schoolmates as a fine student, especially in mathematics. The good-natured feud which existed between her and Mr. Doherty enlivened many a period. Beneath her shyness lies a strong personality which her favored friends will assure you of. By her personality and likable qualities Marion is sure to succeed in whatever vocation she chooses. Junior Prom 3. Marshal 4. ALDEN ROSA 30 Lewis Street Franklin, Mass. “On their own merits, modest men are dumb.” Alden is another member of that group of accomplished musi¬ cians which the band and orchestra will lose in this year’s gradu¬ ating class. Alden squealed on a clarinet for four years and be¬ lieve us he sure could play it! Alden didn’t participate in many other activities for much of his spare time was used in working in a local store.

His actions in football and basketball gave us many a thrill at the games. The dapper “Nick” was always dressed in the latest fashions for men.

If you are feeling blue just turn to Arline and she’ll have you forgetting your troubles in no time.

Some day we expect her to be the efficient secretary of some business executive. Orchestra 1, 2, 3, 4. LEROY SCOTT Scott Hill Road Bellingham, Mass. “ROY” “Wake up and live.” Although “Roy” was always very quiet, his pleasing person¬ ality was always in evidence. As one-half of the Scott-Rhodes combination, “Roy” was well known to all. He did not partici¬ pate in sports but was always a loyal rooter for the athletic teams of F. H. S. Whatever “Roy” does in the future, he is very likely to succeed. DORIS MAE TOWNE 21 Everett Street Franklin, Mass. ‘‘No canvas absorbs color like memory.” Doris is one of our most friendly and helpful girls. This atti¬ tude combined with a magnetic personality and extreme gener¬ osity has never failed to attract those about her. Doris was an efficient and popular librarian.

BENJAMIN TAFT 11 Wachusett Street Franklin, Mpss. “BEN” “ When most I wink, then do mine eyes best see.” " Ben " didn’t join our class until our Junior year in school but he soon became a favorite with everyone. He became a mem¬ ber of the football team and showed his " ruggedness " in many a game. Benjamin and his black pipe are inseparable. Perhaps this fact accounts for his lack of interest in the fairer sex. Perhaps the black pipe will carry you on to success, " Ben.” Good luck! Football 3, 4. HOWARD S. D.

In the classroom her spontaneous giggle could generally be heard, for she was always with a fun-loving group.

Page Thirty-Nine SENIORS AS JUNIORS I T WAS a bright, sunny afternoon, that first Wednesday in September, 1933, when we, the class of ’37, then a group of 188, entered Franklin High School, trying to look nonchalant, but on the whole really very much concerned about our new adventure. Hardly had we become accustomed to the routine of Senior High School activities, when we were invited to the annual Freshman Acquaintance Party, given by the Seniors. We had heard stories from those who had been through the mill, about the strenuous handshaking given the Freshmen by all their upper- classmates. Needless to say we were anxious. Our hands were duly wrung, but to make up for it we were given a short entertainment in the Auditorium, followed by refreshments and dancing. Soon after that came another .party, the Hallowe ' en Frolic, with short plays, games, eats, favors, and fun for everyone. These annual frolics have become even more enjoyable to us as we have come to participate more actively. The High School Orchestra, under the direction of Mr. Webber, was asked to play at the annual Teachers’ Convention held at Ford Hall in Boston. It was a big thrill to play for the convention, and there was the additional excitement of appearing on the same program with Lowell Thomas whom we all had heard over the radio. Then came our first chance to show what we, as Freshmen, could do. With Miss Wiggin ' s assistance we put over a Thanksgiving assembly depicting an incident in the life of John Alden. Alice Bishop made a charming Puritan maid, and Orlando DiPietro and Warren Smith were other Puritan children. 1 After our Christmas vacation we began to prepare for Mid-years, an awful nightmare to young Freshmen. Somehow we managed to get through them and were oh, so glad when that terrible week was over and we received our marks, even though they were not exactly the marks we would like to have had. We recuperated just in time for the gay Valentine Masquerade in February. Prizes were awarded for the funniest and most beautiful costumes. Carl Bailey as a Cadet, and Evelyn Davis as a Valentine girl, both Juniors, received the prizes for the most beautiful costumes. Our class was well represented by Florence Feeley, Lucille Costello, and Dorothy Harris as lovely old- fashioned girls, Stearns Woodman as Cupid, Howard Temple as a gypsy, and last but not least, Richard Ralston as a charming (?) maid of 16. J Before June came we learned that Mr. Hilbert, Manual Training teacher, was leaving us. Also our beloved Mr. Webber left. He was the Science and Biology teacher as well as a member of the Band and an excellent orchestra conductor. We were sorry to lose him and knew how fortunate Brookline High School was to have him. Thus ended our first year at High School. •I When we came back in the fall of ' 34, we remembered the year before and smiled, for we needed no longer to try to be nonchalant. We had become accustomed to High School routine and felt quite at home. 1 Our new teachers were Mr. Ames to fill Mr. Webber’s position; Mr. Colbert to coach foot¬ ball; Mr. Landry to take Mr. McDonough ' s place as teacher of Physical Training; Mr. Rodgers to take charge of Manual Training, and Miss Hathaway, one of our teachers in Junior High, to take charge of the Domestic Science Department. Page Forty-Two •I It was our turn to wring the hands of the poor, little Freshmen coming in, but remembering our own hands, we were merciful. •J This second year, Mr. Patty started the Marshal System for passing between periods. Many of our class were selected to be Marshals, including Eston Fox, and the Marchand brothers. | The school Orchestra was again invited to play for the Annual Teachers ' Convention in Boston, this time under the leadership of Mr. Ames. 1 The Band during the past few years had been improving rapidly. In the spring of ' 35, it played on a boat going to Provincetown, and a seasick bunch they turned out to be. In spite of all, they furnished plenty of music and amusement. Many students went along and had a grand trip. •I The Oskey Jubilee, a benefit show for the Year Book, that year was so popular that it ran two nights instead of one, as scheduled. It was in the form of a cabaret show under the direction of Helena Murray, ’35. •I When we went to the gym on the last day of school, we found Miss Shepard surrounded by girls. Several gifts were presented to her, for she was leaving us to be married. J In the fall of ’3 5 we were real Juniors, a restless group for the most part. We led the teachers a hard life, I fear. We decided to organize, and the following class officers were elected: President, Charles Marchand: Vice President, William Martello; Secretary, Florence Feeley; Treasurer, Stephen Petrosky. J Our new teachers were Miss Hyde, who took Miss Shepard ' s place teaching History: Miss Holmes, who became a regular member of the staff; and the jocund Mr. DePasqua, who came to teach Italian, a newly added subject to the curriculum. •1 The burning of the Ray School brought about a crowded condition with the inmates of our annex transferred to the main building. This congestion lasted several months. •I The Band went on another voyage to Provincetown and met with the same seasick success. €| Soon after Christmas we chose our class rings, made up of a pleasing combination of yellow and white gold. ]| Under the guidance of Mr. Doherty, a splendid Hockey Team was established. For several days and nights the boys worked hard to make a good skating rink in the back yard of the school. They built a fine frame and then came the night to flood it. The hose burst and ! $! $! $:! ?$ ?! $?! $ Mr. Doherty and the boys had a hard night but finally made a rink which would have been a credit to any school. 1 A second Oskey Jubilee was given in the form of a radio broadcast under the Supervision of Nick Kirikos, and turned out to be a great success. Page Forty-Three •I Then came the affair to which underclassmen look forward. That was the Junior Prom. It was a gala affair in the gym, with a grand march directed by Mr. Frazer, with music by Gail Edwards ' Sweethearts of Rhythm. In return we were invited to the Senior Hop at Lake Pearl. Now we are the Senior Class with the last year packed full of activities. Our class officers have been: President, Lawrence Boylan; Vice President, William Martello; Secretary, Margaret Lyons; Treasurer, Edward Johnson. •I We came back in the fall of ' 3 6 to find two new teachers and three new rooms. The new teachers were Miss Keefe, replacing Miss Washburn by teaching typewriting and bookkeeping, and Mr. Hancock teaching English. The new rooms were on the third floor. •1 Our Band had progressed even to the place where they broadcast a program over WAAB. J We decided to have a strictly formal Christmas Ball just before vacation. Music was furnished by Tommy Kay and his Hotel Blackstone Orchestra. January 1, 193 7 started the 100th Anniversary of the opening of the first Normal Schools in America. As Franklin is the honored town this year, The Franklin High School was asked to put on three different broadcasts. They broadcast over WMEX, WHDH, and WAAB. “The Greatest Discovery, " one of the Horace Mann plays, was given in the Framingham Normal School at the Principals’ Convention. The part of Horace Mann was admirably played by Stearns Woodman. Other members of the Senior Class invaluably assisted. J It was now the turn of our class to put on an Oskey Jubilee, and we realized how much the cooperation of the underclassmen meant, for they aided greatly in making it a success. The class elected Florence Feeley as General Director, and William Martello as Musical Director. It was given as a Minstrel Show, and it proved to be one of the most interesting shows ever produced by the High School. •I Mr. Patty taught a class of Juniors and Seniors in History this year, and about the middle of April he took his class on a tour of historical places of interest, includingl the Navy Yard, Bunker Hill Monument, Lexington, Concord, and the Wayside Inn. 1 The class of ’3 8 gave us a beautiful reception on May 14, with music furnished by the Worcester Tech. Orchestra. | Summing things up, we have had a very fortunate four years, full of work, activities, and fun. Our class had grand times together. From now on, our ways separate and we are prepared for any kind of sailing. -—■ Historian — Mary Ware Harlow Page Forty-Four i Class pitll W E, THE CLASS OF 1937, of Franklin High School, in the county of Norfolk, in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, knowing our end to be near, but being of sound and disposing mind, do make, publish, and declare this to be our last will and testament, hereby revoking all former wills heretofore made by us. €[ First: It is our desire that those to whom we owe debts will forget them as soon os possible.

As a singing Endman in the Senior Minstrel Show, Martin certainly proved his vocal ability. To Raymond Brown — A car.

To Raymond McKenna and Anthony Moleca — Paper dolls. This may help them to get acquainted with the girls. To Donald Molloy — A mask — to use when he blushes. To Dorothy Morse — A drum. We hope she won’t forget the band. To Thomas Parsons, Richard Ralston, and Howard Temple — Letters of recommendation to a leading theatrical producer. Their splendid performances in the Minstrel Show as Endmcn will not be forgotten. To Vivian Pettit ■—- A book entitled “How to Remain Beautiful.” Such charm as Vivian’s should be well taken care of. To Stephen Petrosky — An Encyclopedia. With such an able mind, perhaps Stephen may learn even more. To Mary Pisano — A box of candy. They’re both sweet.

To Helen Welik ■— A hair ribbon. This may help us distinguish her from her twin, Stella. To Stella Welik — A cooky. One Cooky seems to have quite an attraction for Stella. To Florence Willed — A lemon. We doubt if even this lemon could keep Florence from laughing. To Stearns Woodman — A map of Bellingham. This may come in pretty handy someday. Still, he must know his way around by now. To Robert Wyllie -—- A job as a publicity agent. Bob sold so many tickets for the " Oskey” that he ought to succeed in this line.

The eleven was composed of a great many new players and their inexperience may have been a factor in the defeats. ([ In the opening game the Franklin team received its first setback at the hands of a greatly under-rated Medway eleven by the score of 14-13. Against Shrewsbury the team lost through a lack of good field generalship. Franklin gained more yardage than Shrewsbury, but didn’t seem to have the scoring punch. ([ The only game of the season in which Coach Colbert’s charges displayed the form that was expected of them was the Stoughton fray. In this game the Blue and White gained a moral victory (so called) by holding the heavy, un¬ defeated, Stoughton team to a scoreless draw. ([ The lone victory of the season was gained over the Dean Junior Varsity team in a poorly played game. However, the team ended the season in a hard- fought afifair with Walpole High School which resulted in a 7-7 tie. ([ All through the season the running attack never seemed to attain its real power, but the team always showed a fighting defense. K The team will lose by graduation the Marchand brothers, who have starred in sports all through their four years at school, Nick Rossetti, a rugged full¬ back, Harvey Garneau. a fast halfback, Marty Brogan, a small but mighty backfield player, Ben Taft, a guard, Art Martel, a lanky end, and Ed “One Play’’ Johnson.

Coach George Colbert entered the team in the Blackstone Valley League for the first time and it finished the season in second place behind Grafton. 1 From the opening game the Blue and White quintet appeared to be a well balanced team. It met each of its rivals in quick succession and emerged the victor until it played Grafton, after which it seemed to suffer a reversal of form for a few games. J All of the league games were closely contested, and a few of the tilts required overtime periods to determine the winner. The team was piloted this year by the aggressive Nick Rossetti and as a climax to a successful season the team received an invitation to the South Shore Tournament and played two opponents before it was eliminated. Players: N. Rossetti (Capt.), L.G.; C. Christakes, L.F.: N. Tcivalone, R.F.: D. McCahill, C.; A. Pellegri, R.G.; M. Robinson, H. Mackenzie, J. Allen, W. Haughey, D. Molloy.

The team was handicapped at the beginning of the season when Betty Martel and Quinta DeBaggis, two veterans from the preceding year, were unable to play. Captain Daddario played alternately with Rita Bartolomei and Pauline Anderson in the forward positions and produced an effective scoring combination. The fine defensive guarding of Aurora D’Errico and May Johnson, together with the excellent center work of Rita Guerin. Merle Atwood, and Pauline Revell, showed the results of Miss Beane ' s able coaching. •I Following the custom of previous years, sweaters were given to the Senior varsity players and to the hard-working manager, Florence Feeley. Players who received sweaters are: Captain Amelia Daddario, Rita Bartolomei, and Pauline Revell.

Led by Captain Leo Marchand, the team developed into a hard¬ hitting ball club. J The team was beaten only by North Attleboro and Shrewsbury. They could not seem to be able to shake the " North " jinx. Franklin was beaten at North by the score of 13-3. but put up a strong battle on Metcalf Field where " North " finally won out in an elongated batting contest. All the players have done well, singles, doubles, and home runs, have helped in piling up the runs. Seniors graduating this year include Capt. Marchand, Don Molloy, H.

However, special music arrangements were made for this group, and the orchestra played for assemblies and the Hallowe ' en Party. •A With money left over from the orchestra concert of last year, a long-needed set of trap drums was purchased. These drums have been available to any student musical group and have been used on occasion by the Junior High School Orchestra, and student dance orchestra. CJ The Franklin Teachers’ Club expressed much appreciation for music furnished by the orchestra for their program. William Martello and George Fitzgerald furnished instrumental solos. A novel arrangement of “Country Garden’’ was one feature of the orchestral program. 1 The orchestra also played for commencement. •I Much praise should be given Mr. Ames for his unlimited patience and untiring efforts with the orchestra.

Band this year was displayed at its best at the concert which took place Wednesday, March 24th. •fl On the various trips, including voyages to Provincetown, trips to Attleboro, Walpole, Wrentham, etc., the band was always enthusiastically received. The school has much, to thank Mr. Ames for in his able direction of the band. Fortunately, Mr. Ames has prepared many Fresh¬ men to replace the great number of Seniors leaving Franklin High. It is not often that a school includes a band of such musicians as those found here in Franklin High. •I If the school continues to have such a band, music will remain at its best.

Officers chosen for the past year were: President, Maurice Boiteau Vice President, William Martello Secretary, Baldo Gianetti Treasurer, Marena Kingman Page Sixty-Seven tologij (Club T HE Biology Club has completed a very successful year. Although heavily burdened with the band, orchestra, arrd various other duties at school, Mr. Ames very generously devoted a good part of his time to the organization and direction of this club. 1 This is the first Biology Club at Franklin High School and it promises to be highly profitable. Its purpose is to enliven the interest of students in the study of living things. This has been accomplished in many interesting ways, such as field trips, discussions at weekly meetings, and special biology topics. The Audubon tree markers which label and describe the trees on the High School grounds were made and erected by the Biology Club. To climax the years’ activities, a week-end collecting trip for marine specimens was taken to Sandwich, the entrance of the Cape Cod Canal.

As underclassmen many of our fellow students were picked to act in plays produced by “Doc” Frazer. •J A play entitled “The Mock Wedding” was presented when we were Freshmen. The cast consisted of Stearns Woodman, Josephine Walsh, Warren Feeley, Clement Brunelli, and Orlando DiPietro. Orlando was the timid husband and the over-anxious bride was Josephine. During our Freshman year the Dramatic Club was organized and members of our group were honored by being chosen to take part in the plays presented by the club. Richard Ralston and Stearns Woodman took part in the play “Prose Preferred” and acquitted themselves nobly. Stearns Woodman also acted one of the leading roles in “Big Hearted Herbert,” the annual school play. Temple. Ralston, Ludwin, Woodman, and Corey, starred in an excellent production, “ A Night at an Inn.” •J During our Junior year, Ralston, Parsons, Pollock, and Ludwin, took leading parts in a play put on for the Band at its annual banquet. The “Circus” was also presented, in which a large number of pupils from our class participated. Among this group were William Martello, Margaret Lyons, Florence Feeley, and Marion Riley. “The Boob” was also put on with Andor DeJony in the title role. Stearns Woodman played very well in " D-298.” fl This year, as Seniors, cur class presented a number of good plays. At the Hallowe’en party the “Tiger ' s Claw,” a comical play, was excellently produced. Dorothy Harris, Mary Harlow, Andor DeJony, and William Martello, played the characters successfully. The play shown at the Christmas assembly was “Birds’ Christmas Carol” and Alice Bishop, Florence Feeley, Lawrence Boylan, William Martello, and Stearns Woodman, participated very well. CJ Plays depicting incidents in the life of Horace Mann were broadcast over the radio in celebra¬ tion of the Centennial of the founding of the first Board of Education in Massachusetts. One of the plays was presented before the State Principals’ Association at Framingham. Seniors who acted in these plays included M. Davis, M. Harlow, D. Harris, F. Feeley, W. Martello, A. Pollock, D. Butterworth. H. Temple. A. Brown, R. Ralston, A. DeJony, E. Johnson, and S. Woodman. •I The Senior Class play, to be presented during Commencement Week, is " Disraeli,” and it promises to be one of the best ever presented at High School. Disraeli . Charles . Mrs. Travers .

On Thurs¬ day, April 15, the production was presented before a “packed house.” •I The black-faced endmen added much to the entertainment with their well-directed “quips” and " wisecracks” to a most capable interlocutor, Edward Johnson. The underclassmen con¬ tributed much to the success of the show by performing in specialty numbers and singing in the chorus. •I A financial success, the show enabled us to produce our year book for a lower price than in previous years. Much credit is due the directors for having the initiative and persistence to make the show such a success. “Doc” Frazer’s help was also greatly appreciated.

II Happy, sublime, are the thoughts left behind, Mem’ries of pleasure and labor combined, Ready to meet all struggle and strife Which we’ll encounter through life. III Cheering and cheering for victory’s fame, Winning or losing, good sports in the game. Aiming to serve, our spirit afire, Working for Franklin, never to tire. IV Sing, let us sing, let us join in refrain, Knowing not when we shall meet once again, May God in Heaven watch over all ’Till mem’ries old we recall.
