DEDICATED - - TO JOSEPH BePASQUA who was always a good friend, a willing helper, and an understanding advisor, we, the class of nineteen hundred and thirty-nine, dedicate our " Oskey” Year Book. It is beyond the mere power of the printed page to express our appreciation for the indispensable and valuable guidance he gave in making our book a reality. We can but make a poor attempt and in doing so will say only this: May you find success and happiness wherever you may be, and, may you have the chance to help others as you have helped us at F. H. S. Arthur C UD. dKale AMHERST A.B. HARVARD ED.M. Superintendent of Schools (James JJ. Doherty HARVARD A.B.

Chairman Edna Spencer Barbara Smith Girls’ Sports May Johnson Boys’ Sports William Haughey Class Faculty Adviser Mr. Joseph DePasqua Page Ten Nineteen Hundred Thirty-Nine § CHARLES F. FRAZER Sub-Master Chemistry, Physics Franklin High is indeed fortunate in possessing a teach¬ er who has helped us to enjoy life, both in class and out. His wide knowledge of chemistry and physics makes him a valuable teacher. His classes not only teach a pupil to think quickly, but also to find lively “comebacks” for his jokes. Whenever “Doc’’ coached a play, it was a sure success. ALICE WIGGIN English Miss Wiggin is one teacher that F. H. S. would find very hard to do without or to replace. She has a great personality and a thorough understanding of English. Whenever a pupil is in doubt, he can always be sure of getting sound advice from her. She is also admired for her sound viewpoints on life. MARION LAWRENCE CHILSON French, English When we learned that Miss Lawrence was going to leave, we, especially those who were fortunate enough to be in her classes, were a sad “bunch of youngsters.” We hope that her marriage career will be a successful one. MARION LITTLEFIELD MacGREGOR Latin, English, Penmanship Throughout our years at F. H. S. we have found that Mrs. MacGregor was always willing to help us in any way. Her understanding nature and her willingness to cooperate have made her one of our best friends. They say, that, “one man’s loss is another man ' s gain”; this certainly will be true when Mrs. MacGregor leaves F. H. S. to take up married life. Page Twelve Nineteen Hundred Thirty-Nine PRISCILLA BULLUKIAN Shorthand, T yping, Office Practice, Commercial Geography and Law The success of the business student falls on the accurate and efficient teaching of Miss Bullukian. Miss Bullukian is always helpful and friendly to all the students who sought advice from her. We shall always remember her for the business office atmosphere in which she conducted many of her classes. JOHN F. RODGERS Manual Training, Mechanical Drawing To many of the students, Mr. Rodgers gives the im¬ pression of being very reserved and quiet. But those who were in his classes know that he is just the opposite. We salute him as a " swell” teacher. GEORGE COLBERT History, Civics, Athletics, Business Practice Why is U. S. History popular with the Seniors? — because the " Coach” teaches it, of course. Because of his personality and his manner of teaching, the " coach ' s " classes are the ones to which all students look forward. His excellent work has been one of the chief reasons for the popularity of athletics among the students. JOSEPH DePASQUA Italian, Commercial Law, Geography A true friend of both the faculty and the students of F. H. S. is Mr. DePasqua. His methods of teaching are admired and respected by his students. Mr. DePasqua was our faculty adviser. We wish to thank him for his un¬ dying efforts to make all our events successful and also for his untiring work on the " Oskey.” Nineteen Hundred Thirty-Nine Page Thirteen □ MARION HOLMES English Miss Holmes has endeared herself to all her pupils by her charming personality. Her classes have always been interesting because of her cheerful manner of teaching. We are sure that her pupils will take away with them a pleasant memory of her. HENRI BEANE Basketball Coach, Economics, English, Problems of Democracy This year was Mr. Beane’s first season as coach of the basketball team here, and under his direction it made a good record playing in fast company. As usual, Mr. Beane ' s classes were most interesting, his subtle humor keeping his classes wide-awake and making them enjoyable as well as educational. FRANCES KEEFE Bookkeeping, Typewriting Miss Keefe ' s popularity with the students, a keen sense of humor, and the ability to teach the mysteries of book¬ keeping have made all of her classes interesting and successful. Her expert handling of our new organization, the Athletic Association, proved successful and we hope she will continue to carry on such fine work. ROBERT A. HANCOCK History, Business Practice, Salesmanship Mr. Hancock joined us in our Sophomore year. His style of teaching and his sense of humor quickly made him one of the more popular teachers of our school. Page Fourteen Nineteen Hundred Thirty-Nine GORDON FITZPATRICK Mathematics, History Mr, Fitzpatrick joined us in our Junior year. He im¬ mediately won the admiration of the whole school. He had the job of replacing Mr. Doherty, who was made Principal. We are glad to say that he has filled this posi¬ tion very satisfactorily. J. MURRAY STEVENS Science, Biology, Economics, Band, Orchestra Mr. Stevens joined us in our Junior year. He was one of the best-liked teachers in F. H. S. He will also be re¬ membered for his untiring efforts in furthering the prog¬ ress of the Band and Orchestra. DOROTHY LINDBLAD Home Economics This is the first year Miss Lindblad has been with us and she has already become a good friend to all of us. Miss Lindblad is taking Miss Hathaway’s place teaching Home Economics and having charge of the cafeteria. HOWARD ABBOTT French, English Mr. Abbott joined us in the middle of our Senior year. Regardless of the fact that he has been teaching at F. H. S. only a short while, he has won the respect of both the facult y and the students. Nineteen Hundred Thirty-Nine Page Fifteen ALICE BEANE Health Education, Girls’ Physical Director .... " Beanie ' ' is our teacher and pal. She is one person who is always ready, willing, and able, and that no one can deny. Perhaps that is why she is so well liked and re¬ spected by all who have had the opportunity to be in her classes. HOWARD LAUNDRY Boys ' Physical Draining Mr. Laundry is the young man who is acclaimed by all the boys as a true pal. If any of the boys are approached, regarding Mr. Laundry ' s personality, they will answer you something like this, " Mr. Laundry; he ' s great.” MRS. MARIE S. RILEY Supervisor of Music Without Mrs. Riley’s expert teaching a great many of us would not know the true beauty of music. Mrs. Riley conducts the Glee Club, and teaching the music to some who can not read music is part of this job. She does it all as only a true artist can. MRS. IRENE Iv. WIGHT Drawing Mrs. Wight’s wonderful assistance with " Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs” for our Junior Prom made her a friend of all of us. Even though all the members of the class could not take art, we appreciate her help and work just the same Page Sixteen Nineteen Hundred Thirty-Nine MARY MOLLA High School Secretary " Still waters run deep. " Mary, if you do not already know, is our very charm¬ ing office secretary. Her cheerful manner and her willing¬ ness to help have made her an important figure to the class of 1 93 9. We want to express our appreciation to Mary for her assistance in training our office girls. Good luck, Mary, and do not forget us too soon, for we shall always re¬ member you. c Acknowledgments members of the Oskey Staff cannot fully express their gratitude for the help of Miss Wiggin and Miss Holmes in assem¬ bling our “Oskey Year Book.” To Mr. De- Pasqua for his untiring- efforts and cooperation we extend our words of appreciation and thanks. All others who have helped us in any way deserve the warmest regards and our expression of gratitude. Nineteen Hundred Thirty-Nine Page Seventeen CLASS OFFICERS Secretary — A.

In regard to the positions that he has held at Franklin High in his four years here, we can only say, as he would probably sing, “Thanks for Everything.” Sophomore Class President.

He was always well-liked by his classmates. Not only did he take part in many sports, but he also participated in our social activities. " Bill” was the first judge of our Marshal Court, and a good one he was. Don ' t be surprised some day if you see " Bill” managing one of our great A. P. Stores. Loads of luck “Bill.” Freshman Acquaintance Committee. Football 1, 2, 3, 4. Basketball 1, 2, 3, (Captain 4). Marshal 2, 3, (Captain 4). Baseball 2, 4. Junior Prom Commit¬ tee 3. Oskey 3, 4.

As Editor-in-Chief of the Year Book, “Al " did a splendid and efficient job and proved herself worthy of such a responsible position. “Al” showed great speed and action on the basketball court. She intends to enter St. Luke ' s Hospital which is located in the Berk- shires. We are sure Alice’s patients will always find her very pleasant and sympathetic. Good luck, Alice.

She took part in many of our social affairs. Whenever any musical ' entertainment was called for, ‘‘Flo” was always willing to offer her talented soft cultured voice. Florence’s greatest ambition is to be a secretary. We wish you luck, Florence and may the road to success be a smooth one. Commercial Club 4. Blue and White 4. Oskey Business Manager 4.

BARTELLONI 62 Wachusett Street Franklin “KELLY” “He who loves and lets love is loved by all. " Aldo might have been seen almost anywhere in the midst of a group of laughing boys. His ready wit and good humor have long been a subject of amusement to the students. He is exceedingly popular, which fact can be attested to by any senior. Aldo plays golf, goes horseback riding, and is very fond of fishing. His baseball achievements have also won him a good amount of fame. He is extremely desirous of becoming a lawyer or a radio announcer in the future. His strong clear voice will doubtless be a valuable asset in attaining either goal. Marshal 1, 2, 3. Dramatics 1. FRANCIS C. BARTOLOMEI 36 Hutchinson Street Franklin “FRANNY” “In all the fields of sports, Steadily to the enemy he sends retorts, Which make them sadly view The things they thought they were to do.” “Franny” was seldom heard from, but he was willing to help out in anything whenever asked. He was an all around sport. “Franny” was on our football, basketball, and baseball team, and was outstand¬ ing in every game. We do not know what “Franny’s” plans are for the future, but we wish him all the luck in the world in whatever he chooses to do. Basketball 2, 3, 4. Baseball 2, 3, (Captain 4). Football 4. MARTHA ELIZABETH BISHOP Spring Street Franklin “PEE WEE” “Better to be small and shine Than to be great and cast a shadow.” A cheerful friendly member of our Class is Martha, who. when she isn’t wisecracking, is arguing with Mr. Fitzpatrick. We wonder if her success in math class has anything to do with her being in Mr. Fitzpatrick’s room after school! Martha is always ready to put her shoulder to the wheel whenever a friend needs help and is a conscientious as well as ready worker. Her apitude for making everyone comfortable makes it seem as though she should become a successful nurse, the vocation which she has chosen to pursue. French Club 3. Latin Club 3. Dramatic 1, 2. Blue and White 4. Oskey Committee 4. IDAMAE E. BORMET Washington Street Franklin “IDA” “Quiet yet pleasing is she.” Idamae was one of the few quiet, but pleasing girls in our class. She was seldom heard from, but her amiable manner conquered for her many friends. Idamae’s ability as an artist won for her the honor of contributing to the art section of previous Oskeys. " Ida” and Shirley have been inseparable throughout high school and their steadfastness deserves notice. Idamae plans to enter the Rhode Island School of Design and we wish her the best of everything. Band 1. Hallowe’en Committee 1. Junior Prom Committee 3. Page Twenty-Two Nineteen Hundred Thirty-Nine CHARLES GORDON BOUCHER 47 Cottage Street Franklin “BUTCH” “Not from the stars I my judgment pluck.” Gordon is one of our wittiest classmates and was a very popular student. When he was a member of a class, that class would immedi¬ ately turn into the best liked class in school because of his timely re¬ marks and his never-failing sense of humor. We ll never forget Gordon in the Sophomore French Class, when he was called upon to read some French passage. Immediately he would clear his throat, adjust his glasses, and then begin to read the passage in his " own " French dailect, which would be followed by an outburst of laughter from the class. Good luck Gordon. Dramatics 1, 2, 3, 4. Biology Club 2. HENRY C. BOURBEAU 269 Union Street Franklin “BOO BOO” “Laugh and the world laughs with you.” Henry is a quiet easy going chap, who seldom ‘‘gets sore " at any¬ body. He has a good sense of humor and was often the instigator of pranks on classmates or teachers, some of which caused his ap¬ pearance in session hall. It is rumored that Henry could cause a laugh, even in that grim place. He played in the band for two years, and was a valuable addition to the reed section. Following graduation. Henry plans to go to work. We wish him success. Band 1, 2. Junior Prom Committee 3. RAY BRENNAN 121 Grove Street Unionville “TWERP O’BRIEN” “Slow and steady wins the race.” Is anyone in search of a ‘‘sports writer?’’ He’ll find the answer to his problem in " Twerp, " who proved a valuable asset to the Blue and White during his four years. Much of the success of the class paper was due to " Twerp’s " ably written " sports section. " He is also an excellent student and is very humorous at times when he manages to get in his " two cents worth. " He hopes to become a " Sports Writer” and with him go the best wishes of the class. Blue and White 1, 2, 3, 4. Freshman Acquaintance Party Committee 1. Editorial Committee of Oskey 4. Dramatics 1, 2. DOROTHY MAY BROWN Union Street Franklin “DOTT1E” “SUGAR” “Petite she was, yet seemed so tall.” Dorothy has been one of the quieter members of our class but still had that quality about her that showed she was very popular with those who really knew her. Always ready to greet every acquaintance with a smile and cheery " hello,” she made you feel as though she wanted to be friends with the world. We feel sure, Dot, that with your quiet and engaging ways you will never lack a friend. We hope that you never do, and that Lady Luck may never pass you by. Marshal 1, 2, 3. Nineteen Hundred Thirty-Nine Page Twenty-Three JOHN ALFRED BRUNELLI 67 Alpine Place Franklin “John Brunelli without.” “BRUN” “All work and no play makes a man dull, not gay.” A great personality with a great amount of humor is “Brun. " His ambition is to become a certified accountant and he has already started to fulfill it as he is employed in his spare time at a local bakery. This is not work for " Brun” — it’s a pleasure. As a good-natured, ambitious, hard worker, he is certain to become a " first class” ac¬ countant. A more friendly and sociable chap can rarely be seen, and this will, without a doubt, be a help in his success. The best wishes of the class are with you, " Brun.” Camera Club 3. Junior Prom 3. ELYNOR P. BUFFONE 36 Pinehurst Road Franklin “BUFFY “What ' er she did was done w ith so much ease, In her alone ’twas natural to please.” " Where’s Elynor?” " Have you seen Elynor?” These phrases quickly became the pass-words of our class. Elynor was the busiest girl in school, being Editor-in-Chief of the Blue and White; Editorial Chair¬ man; member of the Varsity Basketball Team besides serving on va¬ rious committees and keeping her " date book” straight. Elynor turned out to be Doc’s female “discovery” of our class. Never having been on the stage before her senior year, she won her way into the hearts of her classmates, playing many leading roles. The high school and its students will miss Elynor and her " famous” smile. Good luck, Elynor. Hallowe’en Party 1. Basketball 1, 2, 3, 4. Commercial Club 4 (President). Blue and White 4. Dramatics 4.

CAMPBELL Emmons Street Franklin “LIL” “Jovial as the day is long.” If you heard a giggle which took you off your feet and sent a chill up your spine, it was none other than " Lil.” ‘ ' Lil” was popu¬ lar among her friends, both male and female. She was one of the very few who could squeeze an " A” from Mr. Rutledge. Always ready with a witty remark she will make herself popular. " Lil” aspires to be a beautician and may she sail her waves to suc¬ cess without getting seasick! Marshal 3. Library 3, 4. Debating Club 4. Junior Prom Committee 3. Hallowe’en Party Committee 2. French Club 3. 262 Main Street MILTON J. CAPLAND “CAP” “M.ILTY” “A man envied by men and adored by women.” Franklin A loud laugh down the corridor usually announced the arrival of " Cap. " Blessed with a great sense of humor which often got him into hot water, it was not like Milton to stifle his healthy laugh. Life was not all a joke to " Cap,” however, for he worked to re¬ ceive good marks. Milton was a member of the " Three Musketeers,” and his social life occupies a large part of his time. We wish him the best of luck at Boston University, which he plans to attend. Ring Committee 2, 3, 4. Junior Prom 3. Blue and White 3, 4. Football 2, 3. brench Club 3. Marshal 2, 3.

CATALDO “DUKE” " I shall succeed — ” " Duke” was an ardent supporter and rooter for F. H. S., being at every athletic game in which the school participated. “Duke” was one of our tall, bashful boys, but he was popular with both sexes of the Senior and Freshman classes. He should have joined the de¬ bating club, as he was always debating with Miss Wiggin in her classes. His knowledge of English was the envy of all the English students. Lewis is planning to attend Massachusetts State College upon grad¬ uating. We wish him all the luck in his new studies. Marshal 1, 2, 3. MICHAEL J. CATALDO 91 Summer Street Franklin “MIKE” “SPORT” " Brevity is the soul of wit.’’ A roar of laughter often discloses the whereabouts of “Mike.” one of the wittiest boys in the class. He was usually seen in the midst of a laughing group of students, of which he was one of the most popular. “Mike,” “the best dressed boy,” was the “Sport” of the class, be¬ ing very prominent in social affairs. However, this did not prevent him from being a good student, for he received good marks in his studies. After graduation “Mike” plans to attend Worcester Poly¬ technic Institute. Good luck, " Mike.” Freshman Acquaintance Party 4. Junior Prom Committee 3. Football 2. Alumni Dance 4. Oskey Advertising Chairman 4. LAWRENCE J. CLARK 15 Thayer Street Franklin “CLARKIE” " Every man can seek acquaintance, But friends happen.’’ “Clarkie” was a quiet, unassuming chap, but he presented a very commanding appearance as a debator. His logical mind presented con¬ vincing arguments which his opponents found difficult to meet. Un¬ doubtedly the poise acquired as a debator gave " Clarkie” the air of stage presence which he exhibited as leading man in many of the school plays. Lawrence was a member of the ‘‘Camera Club,” and it is rumored that he has been offered large sums in exchange for some “candid” shots he snapped. Lawrence plans to attend the Litchburg Teachers’ College. Best of luck, Lawrence. Band 2, 3, 4. Camera Club 2, 3, 4. Debating Club 3, 4. FRANCES S. CROCHUNAS Beech Street Franklin “FRAN” " A little with quiet is the only diet.’’ A shy, unassuming girl is Lrances. Although she was in the back¬ ground most of the time, she was always there. Frances has helped in the library this year and has proven herself a favorite with the pupils. The friendship of Frances and her ever faithful Mary cannot es¬ cape unnoticed. This friendship which has lasted through all their school years, we believe will last for many years to come. We are sure that you will get along as well with others, Frances; here’s wish¬ ing you luck. Commercial Club 4. Librarian 4. Nineteen Hundred Thirty-Nine Page Twenty-Five NICK DANGELO 32 Hutchinson Street Franklin “NICK” “Personality is the key to happiness.” Although “Nick " is always very quiet, his pleasing personality is ever in evidence. As a close friend of the “Green Jackets,” he is known to all. He didn’t participate in sports because of “doctor’s orders " but was always present at the games. We know not what the future holds in store for him, but we feel sure he will succeed. Basketball 1. PHYLLIS MARJORY DARLING Off Fisher Street Franklin “PHIL” “Nice things are wrapped in small packages.” Like to have you meet “Phil, " one of the “shorties” of our class. But, in spite of her shortness, she makes her presence known to every¬ one. Who could help but notice her smile and that black wavy hair, which was the envy of all the girls? We understand “Phil " is one of those who has a very special in¬ terest located in well-known Bellingham. “Phil " was one of our efficient office girls, too. She surely will be a valuable addition to any office if she takes up that work. Here ' s to your success for the coming years, “Phil. " Hallowe’en Committee 1, 3. Band 2, 3. Blue and White 4. Commercial Club 4. ALDEN BURTON DAVIS 95 Dean Avenue Franklin “DRIBBLE” “I dare do all that may become a man; who dares do more is none.” Alden was that trumpet player whom we all called “Horace Heidt.” For this reason, he was one of the most popular students in the class. His “happy-go-lucky” attitude made him a delightful personage in any group. He is good-natured and likes a good time. He played Basketball and Football in his spare time and indulged in a game of pool now and then. Alden wants to pass several Civil Service exams in order to obtain a good Gov’t job. He has ideas of joining the Navy and may carry them out. Band 1, 2, 3, 4. Marshal 1, 2, 3. Football 3. ARTHUR DAYIAN 169 Maple Street Franklin “ART” “You’ve got to be a football hero.” To look at “Art " one might think he was a very quiet young man. but looks are deceiving, and “Art’s” case is no exception. When he gets on the football field, he certainly can hold his own with all op¬ ponents. Being a speedy and flashy “end, " he helped his team gain victories. With his quiet, good-natured personality “Art” has found his way into the hearts of his classmates. His main interest and hobby being sports, which he proved to us in his English themes, sports will possibly turn out to be his life’s work. Best of luck, “Art!” Football 4. Page Twenty-Six Nineteen Hundred Thirty-Nine a fos? Keg CHARLES S. DAYIAN 169 Maple Street Franklin “CHARLIE” “CHAS” “Short of stature, quick of wit.’’ “Charlie,” as he was known to his friends, was one of the most quiet boys of our class. He wasn’t known to everyone, but those who did know him knew him as a true and loyal friend. “Charlie” was a very good student. In his first three years at F. H. S. he was never seen without his pals. We understand “Charlie " is becoming very religious lately, hav¬ ing his heart set on having a Bishop in the family. We also learned that “Charlie” is interested in studying Diesel after graduating. The best wishes of the class are with you, “Charlie.” HENRY R. De BAGGIS 72 Alpine Place Franklin “HANK” “A kinder friend has no man.” Besides being a great little basketball “star,” “Hank” is a jolly lad, willing to take part in any form of amusement that may occur. He is a lover of all sports and usually attends the games if not in the lineup. “Hank” is seldom seen without “Mike” DeGrazio except when he went to see his “intended.” Whatever he attempts in years to come, we wish him the best of luck. Basketball 4. MICHAEL DeGRAZIO 68 Alpine Place Franklin “MIKE” “Where there’s a will, there ' s a way.” “Mike” is the type that one likes on sight. His cheerful counten¬ ance and jovial ways would make any pessimist gay. He is exceed¬ ingly popular with both sexes and has a very charming personality. “Mike’s” hobby is basketball, as one can readily observe when seeing him in action. As a matter of fact, he is a promising player for the future Town Team. The height of “Mike’s” ambition is to own and operate a reasonably prosperous business, and, if he sticks to his motto, he will doubtless achieve it. Best wishes, “Mike.” Marshal 1. Boat Club 2. Basketball 4. ANTHONY L. Di PARDO 49 School Street Franklin “TONY” “Of soul sincere, in action faithful, and in honor clear.” “Tony” was one of the most popular members of our class. His brown eyes were the envy of all. Besides being a good student, he was one of Doc’s actors, being in practically all of Doc’s plays. We have learned that “Tony” has been going to Norwood lately with “Nick” Muccillo. All we have to say is, keep away from Nor¬ wood, “Tony,” or you’ll get “Bernie,” “Bernie.” “Tony” plans to attend Northeastern University in preparation for his study of law. Good Luck, “Tony.” Dramatics 1, 2, 3, 4. Band 1, 2, 3, 4. Orchestra 1, 3, 4. Biology Club 2 (Treasurer). Marshal 1, 2, 3. Blue and White 4. Oskey Editorial Committee 4. Oskey 3, 4.

One thing she was always willing to do was to provide humor. She isn ' t a very big girl, which proves that good things do come in small packages. What she lacked in quantity she made up in qual¬ ity. Also, her scholarship was of a grade to satisfy all demands. What more could be asked to make an ideal classmate? Good luck, " Betty,” and may you succeed. Commercial Club 4. Year Book Editorial Committee 4. Oskey 4. HELENA MAE DWYER Chestnut Street Franklin “SHORTY” “Good Mind, Good Find.” A brilliant mind plus a sincere personality equals Helena. She was one of our best students and her knowledge in every subject was amazing. She was the type of pupil that delighted the heart of any teacher. Her studious nature however, did not prevent her from par¬ ticipating in any gay activities.

He was very popular with his fel¬ low students. His cheerful attitude and witty remarks caused much amusement among the members of the class. Lloyd likes to go fishing and swimming, play basketball, and has often been seen on the ballroom floor. He hopes to attend an en¬ gineering school after graduation, and with application of untiring ambition he will succeed. Marshal 2, 3. Hallowe’en Party 4.

He is popular with members of both sexes. We wonder what he will do without Warren Sampson. When asked a question by a teacher, he would always start “beating around the mulberry bush,’’ and give a round¬ about answer. We haven’t found out as yet what “Cheekis’ ’’ plans are for the future, but we wish him all the luck in the world in whatever he chooses to do. MARIE FINN Brook Street Franklin “RIE” “A smile for each — a friend for all.” “Rie” is always there with a smile and a helping hand when called upon. She never lacks a companion, no matter where she is going. She loves to dance, and she dances well, whether she is dancing with a good dancer or a fair one. Her smile has made many manly hearts flutter and miss a beat. ‘ ' Rie " has been with us only two years, but during this time she has made many friends. We aren ' t sure of Marie’s ambitions, but neither is she. Best of luck, “Rie.’’ MAJORIE FORD Fuller Place Franklin “MARGIE” ‘‘She never has a great deal to say Her words have been deeds day after day.” “Margie” has been one of our quietest members and during her four years we have hardly known she was around. To those who really know her she is a good sport. “Margie’s” ambition is to be a secretary. If she stays as ambitious as she is now, she will make a good secretary. The world would be a much better place to live in if there were only more people like you, “Margie.” Good Luck. Commercial Club 4. Home Economics 2.

We never glanced across the classroom at Virginia but she smiled back. With her friends she appeared to be a favorite and we know that with this friendly attitude towards the world that each of her days will be well worth the living.

While handling high-strung thoroughbreds, " Angie " must have cultivated the patience and evenness of temper which has marked his High School career. He has a good sense of humor, and this combination makes him well liked by all. After graduating, Angelo plans to continue his education at Wentworth. Best of luck, Angelo. KENNETH R. GILDERSLEEVE 817 West Central Street Franklin “KENNY” “A bird in the hand is worth two in the bush.” " Kenny " is that calm, cool, and collected young man who seems to believe that " Silence is Golden.” His reserved manner, however, cannot hide that touch of clever humor and good-nature. " Kenny” hunts, fishes, and traps in his spare time, as he is exceedingly fond of outdoor sports. His hobbies are, as one may readily see. closely linked with his fondest ambitions: to become a forest ranger or a game warden. He has had a lot of experience in this line of work and will probably realize his long desired ambitions. Dramatics 1. BARBARA LOUISE GRAVES Mechanics Place Franklin “BARB” “Good luck comes to those who bring sunshine wherever they go.” Whenever you see the Lincoln street bus leave, you know that " Barb” is on it. Faithfulness is one of her qualities. She is one of the few of us who has a fine sense of humor. These qualities have made four years of knowing " Barb” a pleasure. The Paris dressmakers certainly have a dangerous rival in " Barb” if we can judge by those beautiful dresses and coats she made and the prizes she won for them. Want to know a secret? Don’t tell — " Barb’s " favorite name is “Albert.” With all her fine qualities she will be successful we are sure. Glee Club 2. Home Economics Club 2 (Vice President).

How one so small can possess so much vitality is a mystery unsolved. Her en¬ thusiasm in all school activities was unsurpassed. Any social func¬ tion of any interest was sure to attract " Winnie’’ and her presence added to its enjoyment and success. Anyone who was lucky enough to sit near “Winnie” in class was sure to get a good share of unexpected laughs which made classes a pleasure. This spunky little miss with her cleverness and gaiety should sail through life with ease. Commercial Club 4. MARION WINNIFRED HAZEL 36 West Central Street Franklin “BANDY” “Live and Let Live.” Having formerly attended Walpole High, Marion came to Franklin for her Senior year only. She has managed, however, to make re¬ markable progress both in studies and in social activities. Her cheer¬ ful smile and discreet manner have made her very popular with the students. Marion likes to read adventure stories, go hiking and dance. She is a regular “Jitterbug,” when it comes to dancing. Her only plans for the future are: either to write short stories or study dramatics. She is particularly talented at writing short stories and will probably succeed in both her ambitions. BARBARA E. HENDERSON Dean Avenue Franklin “BABS” ‘‘Speech is silver, silence is gold.” Barbara was one of the quieter members of our class. One of Bar¬ bara ' s greatest problems was to speak so she could be heard by others. A girl like Barbara didn ' t need a loud voice: her test papers spoke for themselves. Although Barbara was a bashful girl, a little encouragement would soon get her into conversation. Then you would find her very en¬ joyable company. We do not know what Barbara s plans are for the future, but we may be sure that she will succeed in whatever she decides to do. ELMER G. HODGES 84 Crescent Street Franklin “JOLLY JACK” ‘‘Silent and strong was he.” Elmer was a very busy chap while in high school, for besides at¬ tending school, he worked afternoons and evenings at the local movie house. Moreover he found time for athletics and clubs at school. While he was on the job at the theater, Elmer was the strong, si¬ lent type of man. In school, however, he showed himself to be the possessor of a very jolly disposition, and his hearty laugh has en¬ livened many a classroom. Elmer plans to continue working after graduation, and we all wish him the best of luck. Band 1, 2, 3, 4. Football 2. Biology Club 2. Camera Club 3.

She did not possess the usual early-morning grouch which so many of us dis¬ played. She could handle any situation in her own inimitable manner. Helen was an outstanding member of her Shorthand Class. It seems as though Shorthand took a liking to her, or should we say she took to Shorthand? We understand that it is Helen’s ambition to go to a business school. If she does as well as she has done in Franklin High, she will be doing all right!

" Bob’s” name is synonymous with “good sport,” for “Bob” is certainly one person who is eternally optimistic and cheerful. “Bob ' s” hobby is sports and he has certainly proved it to his fellow classmates.

The valuable service which she has rendered to the band will not be forgotten by the other members. Mildred is often seen traveling in the company of a Darling (you may take it whichever way you wish). We cannot be wrong in stating that with her varied abilities Mildred will not find it hard to secure a position. Loads of luck, Mildred. Band 2, 3. Hallowe ' en Party Committee 2. Commercial Club 4.

Wherever " Dick” is, there’s sure to be lots of fun. He is the most friendly and sociable chap in the class. Whenever anyone wanted to find " Dick” after school hours, he could be found sitting in the study hall serving a session for some teacher. H is future plans are as yet undecided, but we wish him success in whatever he undertakes. DUSOLINA ERNESTINE ROVANI 95 Chestnut Street Franklin “DUTCHY” " Smiles galore -— Wit encore.” " Dutchy” is one of Franklin’s ablest and most jovial representatives. She always has a great many friends; in fact, everyone is her friend. She is another proof of the saying about good things and small pack¬ ages. She seems to take life easy, and studies never seem to worry her, yet her work is always well prepared. “Dutchy’s” ambition is to be a reporter. Can’t you just imagine her doing all in her power to get a scoop? We are sure that ’‘Dutchy’s” sunny disposition will pull her through any tight squeeze. Good luck, Dusolina. Marshal 3.

Mary is a quiet, conservative young lady who really ought to give people a chance to know her better. We are sure that there are many pupils that think the same. Mary is Franny’s “other half.” We wonder if anyone else will be able to say the same thing some day. We do not know what Mary ' s plans for the future are, but we wish her the best of luck.

He is the boy who played the sousaphone in the band for four years and never complained. How he ever “flew” through four years of math is more than we can see. “Sarnie” was very popular with his fellow-students, and also with his teachers. He was an asset to any inter-class basketball team on account of his height and all-around playing. He never said anything in class unless it was the truth.

Edith took a business course, and her marks were usually quite high. We feel sure that if she con¬ tinues in a business career she will be a success.

He has taken French three years in high school; this training, to¬ gether with the fact that he is of French parentage, enables him to speak French as fluently as he does English.

Page Forty-Eight Nineteen Hundred Thirty-Nine i r (? aA i I T WAS just four years ago that we, the graduating class of 1939, entered Franklin High School 178 excited little Freshmen. At first we felt very important but after a week or so we were put in our places. •I We made our debut in the F. H. S. society at what they call the Freshmen Acquaintance Party. As is the custom, the upper classmen put us through the mill but we were later re¬ warded with several short plays, followed by refreshments and dancing. — (all of which was free for us.) 1 The next event of interest was the Hallowe’en Party with its side shows, eats, and fun galore for everyone. •I Our first chance to show what we, as Freshmen, could do came when we were asked to put on the Thanksgiving Assembly. Edna Tuttle, Alice Ducharme, Barbara Fraser, Raymond Brennan, Aldo Bartelloni, Kenneth Gildersleeve and Paul Gilbert took part in the program. After this assemb ly we were regarded with a little more respect. C| Just before Christmas our class organized and elected the following officers: President, John Jenest; Vice-President, Jean Mackintosh: Secretary, Evelyn Stenson; and Treasurer, Florence Potenza. Ever since our Christmas vacation we had heard a lot about “those terrible mid-year exams,” so a week before it came time for the so-called “nightmares,” every faithful, inexperienced, little Freshman could be seen carrying home an armful of books. Even the upperclassmen seemed a bit worried. When the examinations were all over and some of us were rewarded for cramming, while others — oh, well, we all returned to normal. •I When the Ray School was destroyed by fire, the business pupils who have their home rooms there were transferred to the main building. This change caused a crowded condition which lasted for several months. 1 The first Oskey that we witnessed was given in the form of a radio broadcast. •I The new teachers that had been added to the teaching staff this year were: Mr. DePasqua, Miss Holmes, and Miss Hyde. J As our first year at high school came to an end we all agreed that we might have done worse. J When we returned in the fall of ’3 6, fullfledged and independent Sophomores, we found two more new teachers to greet us. Miss Keefe and Mr. Hancock. Page Fifty Nineteen Hundred Thirty-Nine i a 1 As sophomores our class officers were: President, Fred D’Errico; Vice-President, John Jenest; Secretary, Alice Ducharme; and Treasurer, Florence Potenza. •I After our spring vacation a new system was instituted for school hours from 8:15 A.M. to 1:15 P.M. This proved most successful and has been continued ever since. •I This year, with the help of members of our class, the Band was so exceptionally good that in December under the leadership of Mr. Ames, they broadcasted a program over WAAB. •J Already another year at high school has come and gone. Many members of our class have become useful in athletics, dramatics, clubs, and the band. 1 It was when we were jolly Juniors that our congenial friend and teacher, Mr. Doherty, be¬ came our new principal, succeeding Mr. Patty who had resigned to become Superintendent of Schools in South Hadley. •I The new teachers this year were Mr. Fitzpatrick, Mr. Rutledge, Miss Lindsey, Mr. Stevens and Mr. Beane. •I Soon after school opened, the following class officers were elected: President, John Jenest; Vice-President, Fred D ' Errico; Secretary, Alice Ducharme; Treasurer, Florence Potenza. 1 This year, much to the relief of everyone, — including teachers, — the mid-year exams were abolished. It was decided that the knowledge obtained in one night’s cramming wasn ' t worth the time and trouble of giving examinations. •I The committee appointed for selecting class rings was: Elizabeth Kearney, Milton Capland, John Jenest, Elynor Buffone, and Jean Mackintosh. | Now that we were Juniors, we had to prepare for our Prom which is given in honor of the Seniors. As our secondary guests of honor, distributed around the gym. were Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, drawn so realistically by our artist, Edna Spencer, that one might have thought that Walt Disney himself had drawn them. The music was furnished by Harrington ' s New Englanders. Cfl This year our class was well represented in the athletic activities. We were represented in Football by Tillie Pizzi, Arthur Vozzella, Lester Valente, James Kerrigan, Esto Mucciarone, and Bill Haughey; in Basketball by Bill Haughey, Tillie Pizzi, Franny Bartolomei; and in Baseball by Franny Bartolomei, Tillie Pizzi, Frank Mucciarone and William St. John. 1 This year ' s Oskey, in which many of us took part, was given in the form of a country school. Nineteen Hundred Thirty-Nine Page Fifty-One C]J The Band went on another voyage to Provincetown, but this year it rained all day. causing a few to have that unpleasant feeling which spoils so many boat-trips. fj In return for our reception, the Seniors gave us free tickets to the Senior Hop at Lake Pearl, the last event of this year. •I In September, 1938, we entered F. H. S. for the last year as the sophisticated Seniors, and found that our original class had diminished to 105 members. As we look at the incoming Freshman class it seems unbelievable that we Seniors could ever have occupied that lowly position. 1 This year’s class officers were: Fred D’Errico. President: William Haughey, Vice-President; Alice Ducharme, Secretary; and Florence Potenza, Treasurer. J When the large number of Bellingham pupils left us this year, the Ray School was no longer needed. Miss Lindsey and Mr. Rutledge left to accept positions elsewhere. The new teachers were. Miss Lir.dblad and Mr. Abbott. To help defray the expenses of the Year Book a Christmas Dance was given by the Senior Class. J This year’s girls’ basketball team was well represented by Seniors, and the following girls received sweaters and letters for their excellent work. Capt. May Johnson, Alice Ducharme, Elynor Buffone, and Barbara Fraser. 1 It was decided that our Oskey would be given as a Showboat and through the efforts of Fred D’Errico and the committee, Doc Fraser, and Kay Rood, it was quite successful. And now with preparations going on for the prom, class play, commencement exercises, and our Senior Hop, we find that the end of the four happiest years of our life is drawing near. Next year we are on our own. May our experiences in the school of life be as happy as those in F. H. S.

After two easy victories over Bellingham, the girls traveled to Wrentham to avenge the previous tie. The game was hard-fought throughout, and, as it was anybody’s game, Wrentham came out on top by the narrow margin of 33-30, giving Franklin its only defeat of the season. •J The Franklin girls ' second team had a fairly successful season also, winning five and losing three games.

To introduce the Senior year, we give you the acting of Tony DiPardo and Elynor Buffone; incidentally, our actor and actress of the moment. They made a hit in " Perfect Brick " in which Florence Potenza, Jean Mackintosh, and Lawrence Clark had parts. In the " Undoing of Albert O ' Donell” and " Christopher’s Candle,” they, Tony and Elynor, showed talent and were ably supported by Jean Mackintosh, Warren Sampson, and others. •I " Student Days " was put on for the Freshmen Acquaintance Party. The cast included Gordon Boucher, Richard Parsons, May Johnson, Annie Ventham and Florence Martello. •I This year, too, several members of our class were in the Oskey play and chorus. Our class has been very active in previous Oskeys during our four years and has contributed in many in¬ stances to the success of the Oskey Program. 1 As we go to press, we find that the Senior Class Play will be the grand comedy, " So This Is London.” The cast as yet has not been selected. Page Seventy-Eight Nineteen Hundred Thirty-Nine ( jfeSa ina td u6 Organizer — Mr. Beane r I a O THE members of this club we owe two of our most interesting assemblies. The force of A the speakers and the interesting and parliamentary manner in which they presented their views for either the negative or affirmative side proved the efficiency and character of Mr. Beane ' s coaching and the members’ cooperation with each other. •I The way in which our club took two beatings in competition with the Attleboro High School showed that sportsmanship was their code at all times. We may be very proud of the club and its progress. DEBATING TEAM Lawrence Clark — Manager John Schur Robert Parker Walter Gammon Nineteen Hundred Thirty-Nine Page Seventy-Nine N APRIL 12 our Senior Class of ' 3 9 put on the fifth annual Senior Oskey. The show, under the direction of Mr. Frazer, was a huge success and depicted a show boat in full regalia. J The Captain of “The Oskey Showboat” was Fred D’Errico, who deserves praise for his un¬ tiring efforts at the practices and for his pleasant manner in acting as master of ceremonies. 1 It is very important that we should mention the work of Kay Rood, a member of ' 41, for his able support at the piano. He accompanied the vocalists and dancers and arranged many of their numbers for them. To the members of all the under classes we extend our words of appreciation. •I We leave best wishes to the Juniors for the success of their Oskey and we hope that the Freshmen and Sophomores may be able to participate with as much talent as they have in ours. •I To all who sailed on ' The Oskey Show Boat,” “Bon Voyage " and “Thank you again.” Page Eighty Nineteen Hundred Thirty-Nine President .Archie Howell Vice-President .Henry Proal Secretary .Mabel Woodworth Organizer .Miss Keefe r I A HE Camera Club is still as popular this year as it has been since Miss Keefe first started it. The members have had several lectures and have tried their own experiments in amateur photograph y. The club members seem to be carried away with this interesting subject and be¬ cause of this the club is a popular asset among the club collections. P. Chittick L. Clark J. Cohoon W. Sampson K. Sewell Nineteen Hundred Thirty-Nine Page Eighty-One £B ue avid dfrAite A COMPLETE revolution has taken place in the history of the school paper this year. Instead of the continual process of mimeographing the paper, it was decided to send the paper to The Franklin Sentinel to be printed. All advertising was left out of the paper. The staff this year is well represented by students from all four classes and no little amount of gossip and " newsy scoops” are picked up by the alert members. Although some students felt that the paper is not as successful as previously, we think that they will find it more so as time goes on.

You have given clouds a silver lining, Made each hour so precious and so gay. Sadly we recall the day we came here. Filled with youth’s bewilderment and fear. Now we’ve gained the Faith for a career Dear Old Franklin High Goodbye. Now Oh ! friendly teachers we are leaving Your kind inspirations and advice; And we hope together we are grieving O’er this separation of great price. Please forgive each little indiscretion Little acts we merely meant in fun. Treasure only thoughts of our devotion For ’tis time to say goodbye. Far beyond the mystic future beckons With her hopeful promise of success. Then will come the day when the world reckons And bestows her trials and happiness. As we slowly sail life’s stormy seas, We’ll be helped by haunting reveries In our treasure chest of mem’ries Dear Old Franklin High Goodbye.
