Proudly, we lift our hearts unto our School. Chorus — Franklin High, we ' re leaving, to attain our goal, With these Memories of you, deep within our souls. You have been our guidance, all these four years through, How we start Life ' s highway, grateful to you, For days in Franklin High. II All through the years we ' ve watched our paths unfold, And quickly by, the years have onward rolled, Teachers as Friends to guide us through each day, Helping us with their cheer to brave the way. So through the years when life seems dark and gray, Memories of School will help us on our way. Chorus — Franklin High, we ' re leaving, to attain our goal, With these Memories of you, deep within our souls. You have been our guidance, all these four years through, Now we start Life ' s highway, grateful to you, For days in Franklin High.

Christakes Page Ten CHARLES F. FRAZER Sub-Master Chemistry, Physics " Doc” is one of our favorite teachers. He has been of great assistance both in class and in our various stage enter¬ prises. His hearty humor will never be forgotten. ALICE WIGGIN English Miss Wiggin is one of our best friends. She is thor¬ oughly familiar with our faults, and through her philo¬ sophic ideals she inspires us to overcome them and to elab¬ orate our virtues. We hope that students for some years to come will derive as much benefit from her efforts as we have. MARION LAWRENCE French, English Miss Lawrence ' s smiling face and friendliness have made her one of the shining lights during our school days and her absence after an unfortunate accident was greatly felt by all. MARION LITTLEFIELD Latin, English, Penmanship Latin and English are given added zest and appeal when taken with Miss Littlefield who rules her classes with a firm but fair hand. Page Twelve PRISCILLA EULLUKIAN Shorthand, Typing Miss Bullukian, as our Commercial teacher, has to her credit the success of the business students. Her chief ob¬ jective is accuracy, and if she doesn’t turn out a group of one-hundred-percent pupils, it is not her fault. ALICE BEANE Girls ' Physical Director " Beanie’’ is a pal to everyone. In her we are fortunate enough to have a teacher who is capable, willing, good natured, and who has the respect of her pupils. No doubt it is the possession of these qualities that has enabled her to produce such excellent teams. DORIS HATHAWAY Home Economics Miss Hathaway ' s keen sense of humor and cooperative nature are the reasons her class-room is the scene of a social- hour after school each day. Many members of our class will profit by the advice gained at these informal chats. JOHN RODGERS Mechanical Drawing, Manual Training Although Mr. Rodgers ' classes are confined to boys, girls seem to envy the boys because of Mr. Rodgers ' genial manner. Page Thirteen GEORGE H. COLBERT Business Practice, Athletics, Civics No matter where you see the coach he has a wise-crack waiting, but this has made him popular with the students. He has done a fine job of coaching and we hope he will be with us for a long time. HOWARD LAUNDRY Boys’ Physical Director % Mr. Laundry has always possessed a cheerful and pleas- way with his students. He is popular with girls and boys both. MARION HOLMES English Because of her willingness to help any pupil to the fullest extent. Miss Holmes has won the respect and ad¬ miration of all her students. Her genial nature makes her a favorite both in and out of class. ROBERT HANCOCK English, Civics, Business Practice, Commercial Geography Mr. Hancock has proved his good sportsmanship by his attendance at school activities and his untiring efforts in aiding the faculty basketball team to be a success. Page Fourteen FRANCES KEEFE Bookkeeping, Typewriting Miss Keefe makes her classes bright by her charming personality. Through her pleasant manner of teaching, the intricacies of bookkeeping have been made comprehensible. HENRY BEANE English, Economics To Mr. Beane we owe the success of the Debating Club. Though he had very little material with which to work, he has, through his untiring efforts, given us a team of which to be proud. GORDON FITZPATRICK Commercial Geography and Law, Mathematics, History Mr. Fitzpatrick has won his place in the heart of every student. He has done an excellent job with the Hand Book, a book of introduction for the Freshmen, and we are sure they will profit by his efforts. DORIS LINDSEY Problems of Democracy, History, Economics Library As a new member of the faculty, Miss Lindsey has proven her ability to gain cooperation from the students. Page Fifteen ROBERT RUTLEDGE History Mr. Rutledge is a wonderful conversationalist, vocalist, and friend. We all envied his incessant energy in teaching history. J. MURRAY STEVENS Science, Biology, Band, Orchestra Our hats are off to you. Mr. Stevens, for your truly re¬ markable work in building up a new band and orchestra from green material. MARIE S. RILEY Supervisor of Music The splendid work of the Girls ' Glee Club is an example of the ability and competence of Mrs. Riley. IRENE K. WIGHT Supervisor of Art Mrs. Wight is a very able member of our faculty and she is always willing to give us the benefit of her artistic ability when we need it. Page Sixteen MARY MOLLA " Good nature and good sense are her companions.” " Where ' s Mary? " This is a question which you never failed to hear when you were in the office, for there was always someone in search of Mary ' s services. She was never too busy to give us a hearty greeting and to supply us with the information for which we were searching. To her goes our sincere thanks for the patience she has had with us for the past four years. Good luck, Mary, and if. at any time, your school days become too much for you, remember, " The days of our youth are the days of our glory ’; we too shall be serious-minded citizens someday. A cknowledgments ' YX ’E, THE STAFF, wish to thank all those who have so willingly given of their time and talents to make our Oskey a realization. Special appreciation is due to the editorial committees for their fine work on the indi¬ vidual write-ups, and to the advertising and social com¬ mittees for their especially notable campaign to finance this book. Above all, may we extend sincere apprecia¬ tion to Miss Wiggin for correcting our material, and to Mr. DePascjua for his supervision and financial advice. To all these, and to any others who have served in any capacity, may we proffer our genuine appreciation and gratitude.

Active and strong and valorous in fight. ' ’ “Deacon” is an all-round boy. He has been class president, and center on the football team. His sincere nature enlarges his circle of friends with each new acquaintance. He is always ready to laugh at a good joke. But when seriousness is called for, “Deac” can adapt him¬ self to almost every situation, and as class president he had many chances to display his diplomacy. With all his ability and qualities, his success is assured. Football 3, 4. Junior Class Treasurer 3. Senior Class President. French Club 4. Dramatics 4. Hallowe’en 2, 3, 4. Oskey Dance 4. Marshal 4.

Vice-President MARY ELIZABETH KEEFE 33 Cottage Street Franklin “BETTY” " Loving the world, and by the world beloved.” “Debonaire,” that one word sums up “Betty.” Blithely she goes her way undisturbed by exams, missing books or even fire drills. Betty has a distinctive savoir-faire attitude about her. No one can resist her gay sallies nor withstand her cajoling when she sets out to have her own way. “Betty” has taken her classwork much more seriously during her Senior year, and we are sure that with her great mental ability, vitality, wit. and natural charm, “Betty” will be a very popular student at 1 rinity College where she plans to matriculate.

That ' s our " Sid.’ ' Her fine qualities have won our respect and admiration, while her pleasant manner is proved by her host of friends of both sexes. Blushing is one of her favorite pastimes — especially fourth period — while giggling is another. We know that under ‘‘Sid’s " management the " Oskey School " will be an over¬ whelming success. Her ability in business studies was acknowledged by her classmates when they elected her class secretary. Senior Class Secretary 4. Junior Prom Committee 3. President Commercial Club 4.

Treasurer JOHN KALUNIAN Winter Street Franklin " There is no such word as can’t.” A real student, quiet and unassuming. John is always ready to help his many friends in any way possible. His good judgment, keen wit and ready smile constitute the ingredients which make him our most lespected student. John is a talented artist as well, and his drawings show the same precise good thinking which characterizes all his work. With him go the heartiest wishes of his class for a successful future.

Page Twenty-One Franklin MELINA DOROTHY ACCORSI 338 West Central Street “RUGGED” “MILLIE” “Always ready, always there, Always ready to do her share.” Surely this maxim aptly fits Melina. In library work she was very efficient, and could unerringly tell you where to find material on any subject you desired. Melina always saw the funny side of anything and thus kept peace and harmony where there might have been a catas¬ trophe. (This was especially true in library periods.) Melina has am¬ bitions to be a telephone operator, and we feel sure no telephone company would get " the wrong number” if it employed her. Librarian 4, Hallowe’en Committee 4, Glee Club 4. JACQUELINE ADAMS 12 Crescent Street Franklin “JACKIE” “Graceful and useful in all she does.” " Jackie” is one of the best-dressed girls in our class. At dances. “Jackie,” tall, slender, and graceful, proved to be very popular. " Jackie” is well-liked by all her classmates, and she certainly is a “swell kid.” A specialty of hers is to make excellent, if somewhat disturbing facial imitations of her classmates and teachers. " Jackie’s” success at Simmons cannot be denied. Orchestra 1, 2, 3. Glee Club 2, 3. Junior Prom (Art) 2, 3. Dramatics 3. Marshal 1, 2, 3, 4. JOSEPH ALLEN 27 Hayward Street Franklin “JOE” “His quietness of manner belies the mischief beneath.” “Joe,” though one of the more unobtrusive members of the class, thoroughly enjoys the pranks of his friends, and frequently he himself enters into them; thereby proving there is good nature and humor underlying his calm exterior. “Joe’s” basketball playing during his junior and senior years has been a great asset, and will be greatly missed. Good luck, “Joe,” and may your life always be a sportive one. Basketball 3, 4. Baseball 3, 4. STELLA MAE ALLEN 40 Plain Street North Franklin “A tripping dainty miss. With spirits rather high.” Stella is one of the reasons why the vicinity of Caryville is so popu¬ lar. Her cute expression and way of speaking endear her to everyone she comes in contact with. She was often seen around the building followed by a tall shadow who may or may not have been the reason for Stella ' s keen enjoyment in football. Stella wants to be a secretary. We hope you ' ll find an employer, who will appreciate you, Stella, as we do. English Club 2. Commercial Club 4. Home Economics Club 4. Inter-class Basketball 4. Blue and White 4. Marshal 1, 2, 3, 4. Baseball 1, 2, 3, 4. Page Twenty-Two PAULINE ANDERSON 151 Union Street Franklin “POLLY” “Smiling and pleasant to all is she Gay as everyone ought to be. " Introducing popular " Polly,” the girl with the infectious laugh. Wherever " Polly” is, there’s sure to be lots of fun. There’s never a lull in the conversation when she is present, and her sociable nature has made her one of the best-liked members of our class. Pauline has been indispensable to the girls’ basketball team since her freshman year, and her sharpshooting has made many a basket for Franklin High. Pauline is not sure what she’ll do after graduation, but she is sure to succeed in whatever she does. Basketball 2, 3, 4. Glee Club 1. Oskey Jubilee 2. Marshal 4. Hallowe’en Party 1. RUTH E. APPLEBY West Central Street Franklin “RUTHIE” “Music is to the mind as air to the body.” Remember how Ruth with her golden voice, could make us float on clouds of ecstasy? Whenever there was any musical entertainment you would be sure to find Ruth lending her talent to make it a success. She took many things seriously but it was the sunny side of her nature that drew the hearts of all to her. We all wish you success, Ruth, in your chosen profession of Church work. Glee Club 1, 3, 4. Library 4. Oskey 3, 4. I30MENICA JENNIE ARCARO 392 Union Street Franklin “BUNNY” “Thought is deeper than all speech.” Jennie is one of the outstanding commercial students. Even short¬ hand and typewriting, which cause many classmates to tear at their hair, do not daunt her. When looking for Jennie you are certain to find Vera close at hand. A friendship such as theirs certainly deserves notice. If anyone is seeking a secretary we can recommend Jennie without any qualms. Best of luck to you. Jennie. Italian Club Secretary 3. Commercial Club 4. Marshal 4. Librarian 4. MERYLE PAULINE ATWOOD 5 Charlotte Street Franklin “And to uphold and cheer the rest, 1 ought to do, and did my best.” Meryle has always been a very diligent worker for the class of ”38,” and has done her duties well. She is a loyal friend. We have found this out while pouring forth our woes to her. Meryle’s record on the Varsity Basketball team has been beyond reproach. She has shown her school spirit by attending and leading inspiring cheers at all games, rain or shine. Meryle intends to be a dietitian and, as we all know, she can certainly “dish it out.” Bicycle Club 1. Track 1, 2. Glee Club 2. Librarian 3, 4. Cheerleader 2, 3, 4. Marshal 3, 4. Basketball 2, 3, 4.

Page Twenty-Three 1 hsml NANCY BURTON BAILEY 38 Crescent Street Franklin “Grand to be merry and wise.’’ Nancy is not difficult to write about; her most notable characteristics are definite and delightful. Her quick sense of humor is a perpetual joy. She has a keen intelligence which enables her to discourse elo¬ quently on many subjects, and she insists on taking an unbiased view of disturbing events. Nancy ' s platinum blond hair and blue eyes and wonderful stage presence have made her the best actress in our class. We do not doubt that Nancy will be a most popular student at Wellesley.

MARIAN IDA BARROWS Lake Street Bellingham “Good nature and good sense are her companions.’’ Marian is one of the quieter members of our class, but beneath her reserve lie good nature and a ready wit. Marian was liked by those who knew her, because of her extremely likable ways. Marian has ambitions to be a " hello girl " (telephone operator to you). We re giving her this line right now — Good Luck. VICTORIA BARTOLOMEI 68 Chestnut Street Franklin ‘•VICKY” “Never on time, but always there.” Victoria always found it hard to get to school on time. Yet she was always there when it came to classwork. " Vicky " is a strong advocate of bicycle riding for keeping the figure, and her slim, upright figure is enough proof that her formula is correct. We don ' t know what " Vicky " is planning to do. but we are sure she ' ll be there when success is handed out. EDITH EVELYN BATES South Main Street Bellingham “FARMER BATES” “HALF PINT” “Let me have sleek men around me.” Edith is that charming little girl with the big. brown eyes, who hails from Bellingham. She has a smile for everyone she meets, and this, coupled with her pleasing personality, has made her very popular with her classmates. Edith ' s aim is to be a nurse. We feel sure that she will make a big hit with her patients, who will be loath to leave their sick-beds if she is the nurse. Lots of luck, Edith. Glee Club 4. Page Twenty-Four MABEL BEREZIN 3 Charlotte Street Franklin “MAY” “Pure and noble is thy soul, Success and honor mark thy goal. " ‘ ' May” is one of the best students in our class. She knows all the answets on any subject whatsoever, and is not at all hesitant in sharing her knowledge with others. Whenever we were hard up for a little help in anything, Mabel always offered her assistance. She has a deep, sym¬ pathetic interest in people in general. Her traits are harmoniously blended to make an altogether appealing character. Mabel wants to teach and we know that she will overcome any obstacles to reach her goal. Glee Club 1.

BARBARA BERRY Mechanics Street Bellingham “BABS” “Her goodness lies within her soul. " Barbara is one of the members of our class who was seen, but not heard. Her demure and lady-like manner made her a favorite with her friends. Her persistence was shown by her average, the third highest in her home-room. Barbara will succeed and go far in her chosen profession. Good luck, Barbara. ALICE MAE BLACKWOOD 92 Pleasant Street Franklin “AL” ‘‘Serious or gay, which e’er it be, Alice is always good company. " Alice has been the pride and joy of all her teachers, especially teachers of English. While the rest of us stumbled over verbs and grumbled about Shakespeare, Alice found little difficulty in these things. She has been a staunch supporter of all activities, enjoying sports and social functions equally. Alice aspires to be a secretary, and her quiet de¬ pendability and efficiency are sure to make her indispensable in any office. Glee Club 2. Commercial Club 4. Basketball 1. Track 1. HAZEL BLANCHARD 159 East Central Street Franklin “RICKY” “Honor lies in honest toil. " Hazel was the modest artist who drew many pictures of her class¬ mates and teachers. Not only could she draw pictures but she could and did draw mail, judging from her frequent visits to the post office. That ‘ ' mail’’ couldn ' t mean “male " could it, Hazel? Lots of luck. Page Twenty-Five MAURICE RAYMOND BOITEAU Moody Street “LAWYER " South Bellingham " Books are but one inlet of knowledge.” Maurice first became a member of our class in our junior year. He quickly took his place as a most active student, having a prominent part in class affairs, and acquitting himself equally well in class work. His deep voice and keen judgment have turned the tide of many a de¬ bate in favor of his faction. We presume that Maurice will hereafter bend his efforts to the practice of law. We can imagine no field for which he is better suited, and his success will only be an assurance of our faith in him. President Italian Club 3. Treasurer 4. President French Club 4. Blue and White 4.

Street Franklin “BROWNIE” ‘‘Rather solemn, but cheerful too, Keeping ever her aims in view.” A most friendly and cheerful person is Marion. She is one of the tallest members of the class. Her ability to see far ahead may be the reason for her domesticity. You ' ll need it some day, Marion, and here’s wishing you luck. Basketball 2. Home Economics Club President 4. Marshal 2, 3, 4. Track 1 , 2 . GEORGE S. BUCKMAN JR. Main Street City Mills “BUCK” “Men of few words are the best men.” George is the only boy in our class to complete a business course. Though it meant being surrounded by girls, George hid his shyness and completed the course. George has his future all planned. His intentions are to enlarge his printing press which he has worked on while he attended High School. In this field of endeavor we are assured he will succeed. Band 2, 3. CLAYTON BURNETT 3 Fuller Place “CLAYTIE” Franklin ‘‘Jovial as the day is long.” Clayton’s sense of humor was very catching; for proof, ask Miss Lindsey. Though he did not participate in many sports, Clayton’s ability in ice-hockey was recognized both by his opponents and by his teammates. We are sure Clayton’s virtues will place him high on his ladder of success. Hockey 1, 2, 4. Band 1, 2, 3, 4. Band President 4. Page Twenty-Six § 1 ROBERT CAMERON South Main Street South Bellingham “BOB” " What power have , or is it my height?” ' Bob, " in the two years he has been with us, has been among the most friendly and sociable chaps in the class. " Bobby " has always been interested in basketball and his height added to his ability in that particular sport. We believe that a high spot in his high school days was the time when the " Bellingham Farmers,” a team on which he played, defeated a high school team. Keep up your spirits, " Bob, " and you will surely succeed. Basketball 4. LAWRENCE JOHN CAREY 842 West Central Street Franklin “LARRY” ‘‘His faults lie lightly upon him.” " Larry” has been with us but three years, but he has shown us a truly enjoyable person who took life as it came, and never worried seriously about anything. His pleasant ways have made him a worthy classmate. Lawrence’s desire to go to an Engineering School will be fulfilled and his desire for success also. MIRIAM ELIZABETH CARLSON 81 Union Street Franklin “MIMI” ‘‘Colors of every tint and hue, mingle in one harmonious whole.” " Mimi " is always spontaneous and sincere. Her accomplishments are numerous, socially, scholastically, and in the arts. In disposition she is agreeableness personified. " Mimi’s " one fault is her utter con¬ tempt of punctuality. Her friends have learned finally to meet her thirty minutes after the appointed hour. " Mimi " has placed all her drawing talent at the disposal of the class, and the Junior Prom decorations she made were masterpieces. We know she will " wow” them at the Massachusetts School of Art.

EDGAR CARON 697 Center Street South Bellingham “ED” ‘‘Tho vanquished, he could argue still.” A combination of scholastic and athletic ambition — that is Edgar. His ability in sports is attested by the fact that he was captain of both hockey and football teams. On the gridiron his presence was keenly felt, especially by the opposition. We have no doubt that " Ed ' s” future will be as it has been in F. H. S., an actively successful one. Football 1, 2, 3 (Captain) 4. Baseball 1, 2 3, 4. Hockey 1, 2, 3, (Captain) 4. Page Twenty-Seven osRgfl CATHERINE CHOFAY Center Street South Bellingham " KATE” " This is a girl with a pleasant smile. Everything she does, she makes worthwhile.” Hail, ' Kate,” from Bellingham. Catherine is one of those people who can get along with everyone. She was always ready to do her share in anything that went on. " Kate” is an excellent typist, and we know she will make an efficient stenographer for some lucky employer. We wish you lots of luck in your future work, Catherine, and we feel assured of your success. Interclass Basketball 4. Commercial Club 4. Blue and White 4. Marshal 4. Handbook Club 4. CHARLES CHRISTAKES 2 Garfield Street Franklin " CHRISTY” " A lion amongst the ladies.” Meet Franklin High School ' s best athlete. ‘‘Charlie” has provided many a thrill at the games by his performances in playing an out¬ standing brand of ball. His entire time is not taken up with sports, however, for he is as deeply engrossed with the members of the “fairer sex” as he is with athletics. Undoubtedly the fact that there were always ardent feminine admirers sitting on the bleachers, gave him the incentive to carry on when the going was rough. Good luck, “Charlie,” and may you always have an inspiration. Football 4. Baskethall 1, 2, 3, 4. Baseball 1, 2, 3 (Captain) 4. Marshal 2, 3, 4. Freshman Acquaintance Party 4. Junior Prom Committee 3.

CICCONE 91 Chestnut Street Franklin " DAVE” ‘‘Silence outspeaks words.” As one of the less boisterous members of our class, David has cruised among us for four years, causing little tumult; nevertheless his pres¬ ence has been enjoyed, and many a class has been livened up by his dry wit. His two outstanding qualities are his decided interest in sports, and his equally determined lack of interest in the “fairer sex.” Good luck, Dave, and may sports always be your hobby. Baseball 4. FAYE MOODY CLARK 43 Lincoln Street Franklin “Good things come in small packages.” Everyone likes Faye. We like her earnestness, naturalness, and ready smile. But above all, we like her for her obvious sincerity. Faye has proven herself capable by her work in the library. When she took care of the orchestra music, the efficiency with which she handled it prevented any delay at rehearsals. She is jolly and possessed of a friendly good nature toward her fellow students.

Page Forty-Seven SENIORS AS JUNIORS Page Forty-eight Ye History Of “38” N°w it all came about in ye long ago; in ye clays of coal shortages and taxes. And a school there was, yclept Franklin High, a goodly institu¬ tion, as schools went in that time. And now tidings spread throughout ye town and adjacent villages that ye sign of zodiac bespoke of school’s re¬ opening and of many things of interest to mortals then. And this news spread more rapidly each day. •I Now there was ye multitude of youthful mortals who called themselves students, flocking, for ye first time, to ye high school from all corners of ye town and neighboring villages. And of ye multitude membering one hundred and eighty-eight there were several maidens passing fair and several youths of tender years with smooth cheek untouched by ye certain instrument of torture known in those benighted times as ye Gillette. And it came about that on ye following day ye students procured books and pencils and ye multitude was known as ye excited Freshmen, but after ye first two weeks of homework their ardor did verily die down. And thuslv it came to pass that ye class of 1938 did become installed in ye F. H. S. in ye fall of ’34. CJ Ye sophisticated seniors did verily bend low to provide ye Acquaintance Party for ye fickle Freshmen. And ye Frosh did unlimber their pedal mon¬ strosities (those who could), and ye tagged dancers did shake ye mean hoof. And ye next event of interest was ye Hallowe’en Party and great was ye fun provided since much punch and cake was consumed and side shows were in their midst, but ye upperclassmen bespoke of the proverb, “ye children should be seen but not heard.” And ye proverb did hold a dark cloud over ye Frosh. 1 However, their wrath was appeased for ye news spread about that Thanks¬ giving Day was near and ye Freshmen did win more respect after presenting ye customary Thanksgiving assembly. 1 Now it came to pass that ye inexperienced Freshmen did become ac¬ quainted with ye unholy things which students with a nimble tongue in cheek, did call “Exams”; thusly cramming was in order for ye fateful days and ve lamps of Phoebus shone dully when ye teachers (whose cry it was in those days, “They shall not pass”) did reward their efforts with forties and fifties. But these days did end. Page Fifty 0 1 e school term verily did come to ye sudden end and they became ye full- fledged Sophomores. And ye body, being independent, decided to carry on class meetings and ye following officers were elected: President, John Kalunian; Vice President, Barbara Munroe; Treasurer, Regina McDonald; Secretary, Elaine Mourey. Ye class rings were also chosen and Priscilla Talbot and John Healey and Barbara Munroe took ye matter in hand. 1 This term found ye Sophs favorably represented in ye athletic activities. John Kalunian was established in Football, Clayton Burnett and Richard Sewell in Ice H ' ockey, and Nat Tavalone, Paul Erler, Edgar Caron, and Charles Christakes in Baseball. •I Now time did fly and ye group composed ye Junior Class. Though ye con¬ tentment was great, could it seem credible that they were Juniors already? Ye responsibilities did verily pile up now. ][ Ye officers elected were: Betty Martel, President; John Kalunian, Vice President; Muriel Young, Secretary; and Foster Cohoon, Treasurer. On ye return from ye spring vacation ye school hours were changed from ye 8:30 A.M. to 2:45 P.M., to ye one session schedule, 8:15 A.M. to 1 :15 P.M. In order that ye Seniors might lower the price on the year book, the Oskey Minstrel Show was produced and many of ye Juniors took part. Now ye long-anticipated Junior Prom made its appearance and ye Junior Class did provide for the Seniors ye beautiful vineyard and ye grapes did acquire ye realistic touch as a result of Mrs. Wight’s incentive and ye labors of ye art class. ]] And in return ye Seniors did reward ye Juniors with free tickets to their last social event of ye school term when ye Juniors enjoyed ye annual Senior Ball at Lake Pearl. ]J Now it came to pass that in September, 1937, ye former Juniors entered ye High School for the last time as a group yclept sophisticated Seniors, but ye number was diminished from 188 to 107. Page Fifty-One Ye following officers were elected: Foster Cohoon, President; Betty Keefe, Vice President; Soteria Ivehayas, Secretary; and John Kalunian, Treasurer. Mr. DePasqua was elected unanimously ye Faculty Adviser. €J Viewing ye Freshmen from this standpoint it seemed incredible that ye sophisticated Seniors could ever have occupied ye lowly position. •I It came to pass that ye great change came about and Mr. James J. Doherty became Principal in Mr. Patty’s stead and ye Mr. Robert Rutledge and Mr. J. Murray Stevens and Mr. Plenri Beane, Miss Doris Lindsey, and Mr. Gordon Fitzpatrick did procure ye positions as teachers to display their pedagogical abilities. And with ye newly-selected group to carry on the work of those who had left us for various reasons, the year did verily roll on. 1 And ye multitude of clubs did become organized and ye class did prosper and it came about that ye teachers did take pity and there was great rejoicing amongst ye students and for once ye teachers were adored, for ye tortuous system of mid-year exams was abolished. Ye girls’ basketball team did limber up this year, and under ye coach yclept Miss Beane, ye fair co-eds did bring about a successful season. February brought to ye students ye favorable Oskey dance and a goodly time was had by all. And with ye last-minute preparations for ye “Oskey,” prom, and com¬ mencement exercises, ye happy hours slipped away and days grew into weeks and a great realization came to ye Seniors that ye end was near. Ye parting of ways drew nigh. 1 And so after ye manner of historians I draw to a close ye eventful history of ye class of 1938. Their teams held aloft Franklin High’s traditions on ye gridiron, court, and diamond, and victory crowned their efforts. And here endeth ye historian’s task. May success await and may fortune be kind to each and every one of us. Historian, AURORA D’ERRICO Pace Fifty-Two a Class Will B E IT REMEMBERED that WE, THE CLASS OF 193 8, of Franklin High School, of Norfolk County, in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, being of sound mind and memory, but knowing the uncertainty of this life, do make this our LAST WILL AND TESTA¬ MENT, hereby revoking all former wills by us at any time heretofore made. Cf We trust those to whom we owe debts will forget them, and if they are not desirous of doing this they can try to collect on our social security. €JJ We bequeath: TO THE TEACHERS: To Mr. Doherty — A ball and bat so that he may be in good shape for the future student- faculty game. To Miss Holmes — A book written by her fourth-year English classes entitled ' Why Girls Giggle.” To Mr. Frazer — A correspondence course in penmanship. To Miss Beane — The suggestion that next year’s baskets be made larger, the ball made smaller, the team enlarged so as to have one player on a step-ladder to make sure of a few points. To Mr. DePasqua — A mechanical secretary with greater durability and efficiency. To Miss Bullukian — An alarm on the s top-watch. One of her most difficult tasks was remembering to call time when the class was taking a speed test. To the remaining members of the faculty we feel there is no need to bequeath anything, as our absence will probably meet the purpose. TO THE JOLLY JUNIORS: To May Johnson — A compass to keep May from getting lost next year without her senior pals. To Fred D’Errico — A free pass to all swing sessions. The music in his soul should make him a leader of swing someday. To Mildred Rhynard —- A camera. Although she’s only an amateur photographer she does like to keep a " Camera-on” her mind. To Bill Haughey — An evaporating tablet that can be taken when Bill feels the urge to skip classes. To Elynore Buff one — A book of Arthur Murray’s dances so that she may always know the latest steps. The latest is the Hippa Hoo. To Lenard Shangraw — A ventilator — a means of letting off excess air. To Alice Ducharme — A new frock to replace the one she wore while painting the decora¬ tions for the Prom, for that one now resembles a rainbow. To “Butch” Trottier — A rose to match his rosy complexion. To the remaining Juniors a few well-worn teachers, our home rooms equipped with ping- pong tables and the like, and our books of instruction (what’s left of them) . Page Fifty-Three TO THE SILLY SOPHOMORES: To Henry Cataldo — A copy of Whozit’s “Crossington Washing The Delaware.” To Helen Hamant — A bottle of her favorite “gin-cola.” To Ed Pellegri — A longer week, so that he will have time to complete his social duties. To Gaby Martel -—- A recording of the song, “Joseph Joseph.” The Joe ' s seem to appeal to her. To Albert Marchand — The privilege of being Bellingham ' s high scorer when the metropo¬ lis beats Franklin in basketball. To Vera DeCesare — Some of Bernadine ' s boisterousness; then she might be heard. To the remaining sophomores a recipe on how to become a “social wow,” written by the seniors. TO THE FOOLISH FRESHMEN: To Buddy McDonald — A box of stationery so that he will always be supplied with material for his written endearments. To Nancy Haughey — A check book so she won’t be “Owen” anything. To Ralph Crandall — Dan McCahill ' s legs to give him a boost during basketball season. To Red McNiff — A package of “Kools” to “cool” his temper. To Edgar Garneau — The title of “The Great Lover.” He was quite the ladies’ man in his French class. To Marilyn Keefe — A bunch of “forget-me-nots” from the “Stobbart” greenhouse. To each of the remaining freshmen a bib, because of their childish habits and in considera¬ tion of the price of soap. 1 In testimony whereof we hereunto set our hands and in the presence of three witnesses declare this to be our last will this twenty-second day of June in the year one thousand nine hundred thirty-eight. CLASS OF 1938 President, Foster Cohoon Vice President, Betty Keefe On this 22nd day of June, 1938, the testators above named, citizens of Franklin, Massachu¬ setts, signed the foregoing instrument in our presence, declaring it to be their last will: and as witnesses thereof we three do now, at their request, in their presence, and in the presence of each other, hereto subscribe our names.

JACQUELINE ADAMS — has organized a female club which strictly prohibits its members from laughing unnecessarily and most of all is strictly against dancing. Would you have imagined this of our fun-loving Jacky? JOSEPH ALLEN — is playing first base on the diamond of matrimony. STELLA ALLEN — is living on a duck farm. Her favorite saying is “quack quack.” PAULINE ANDERSON — has acquired the title of “Giggling Gertie.” She first became known for this art in her L. H. S. classes. RUTH APPLEBY — is a concert singer.

Their motto is “Down With Men.” NANCY BAILEY — is a famous actress. Her latest leading role is in the picture “The FOSTER-ing Love.” MARIAN BARROWS — is conducting a beauty column in the Bellingham Gazette. She specializes in formulas for reducing. She obtained amazing results herself. VICTORIA BARTOLOMEI — is the manager of a time-clock factory. Even though she is never on time herself, she tries to have other people on time. EDITH BATES — is running a date bureau. The trouble is she gets most of the dates herself. MABEL BEREZIN — has received the Nobel prize for her latest book entitled “How to Make Latin a Conversational Language.” BARBARA BERRY -—- is the only woman steeple-jack in the state. At least she has a head start on any tower. ALICE BLACKWOOD — who sometimes was the only one who could understand Shake¬ speare’s works, has translated them into modern slang so that the less fortunate may also be able to understand them. HAZEL BLANCHARD — is a clerk in a department store in Woonsocket. Evidently Woon¬ socket still holds quite an attraction for her. MAURICE BOITEAU — has originated a new program on the radio. Instead of calling it the “Question Bee,” he calls it the “APPLEBY.” MARION BROWN —— much to our amazement, is an old maid. But we thought she was the MARI-ON kind. GEORGE BUCKMAN — is the instigator of a movement to furnish male secretaries to women executives. CLAYTON BURNETT — is the manager of a large baking company. His motto to the rest of the help is “Do Not BURN-ETT.” ROBERT CAMERON — is known as “Donald Dare.” He dives from 100 yards into six inches of water. LAWRENCE CAREY —- is a Cash and “CAREY” dealer in the line of tobacco. His business is situated in “BEVERLY.” MIRIAM CARLSON — is running a beauty parlor in Boston. She has achieved fame by inventing a machine which makes curly hair straight. She is doing a rushing male business. EDGAR CARON — is holding down two positions at Wellesley. He is coaching the football team and teaching tap dancing. CATHERINE CHOFAY — is secretary to the Johnson Bus Lines. We are of the opinion that she thoroughly enjoys this position. Do you wonder why? CHARLES CHRISTAKES — is working in a candy factory crushing up old Valentine Hearts. Isn’t he the heartbreaker though? DAVID CICCONE — has become the owner of the Socony stations. It’s about time he laid claim to them. FAYE CLARK — is a kindergarten teacher and she certainly must feel right at home. FOSTER COHOON — is a “DEACON” at a finishing school. He teaches debutantes how to handle college-bred “gigolos.” He ought to do well in Franklin. Page Fifty-Five i JOHN CONNOLLY — has won the six-day bicycle race. He started practicing when in high school. MARJORIE CONWAY — has finally reached the height of her ambition. She is private secre¬ tary to the " GILBERT ' ' Publishing Company. MARY COREY — is running a beauty parlor and has attained a great reputation as she is able to climb on one ' s shoulders and perform the operation with ease and skill. CORINA CORSI -—• is a dress designer. She has the odd ability to make beautiful creations out of flour sacks and potato bags.

The solitary loss was to Northbridge on their floor, after Franklin had previously defeated them on the Franklin court by a large margin. A great deal of credit is due the guards, who displayed excellent pass work, and had no more than 12 points scored on them in any one game. CJ The schedule this year was heavier than usual, but with steady practice the girls proved their athletic ability.

Page Sixty-Seven Boys’ Basketball L AST year graduation affected the basketball team very little, since seven regulars reported for the initial practice. •I Coach Colbert ' s five won only seven games and lost six. But several of these losses were received in the closing minutes of the game. The team was so evenly matched that no player was sure of his position. In order to find a winning combination, Coach Colbert changed his men frequently, but with little success. The final game which was played with the favored Dean Academy five was the best game of the season. Two overtime periods were necessary before the Blue and White forged ahead by only two baskets. FIRST TEAM Christakes, L.F. Tavalone, R.F. Pellegri (Captain) , R.G. Robinson, L.G. McCahill, C. UTILITY MEN Haughey, Allen, Bartolomei, Pasquantonio, Healey. Page Sixty-Eight Hockey M R.

This year the team was handicapped by unfavorable weather conditions which permitted them to play only two games. •I This year ' s club was captained by " Ed” Caron who starred on the defense, showing the experience acquired in his two previous years. 1 Prospects for the future look bright, and a championship club is expected within the next few years.

The league games, combined with five non-league games, formed a hard, exciting, fifteen-game schedule. Paul Erler, veteran pitcher for three years, will get the pitching assignment for most of the games. His previous record points to a good year for him. •I Other lettermen to report included Captain Charlie Christakes, Nat Tavalone, Edgar Caron, and Mel.

The cast included Janet Wood. Marjorie Conway, Maurice Boiteau, Nat Tavalone, and Larry Zannino. Cfl It has been decided that the Senior Class play will be “Honor Bright,” a comedy.
