Text from Pages 1 - 104 of the 1942 volume:

■HI i ®lje American’s (dvtzb " Breathes there a wan with soul so dead, who never to himself hath said, this is my own, my native land.” — SCOTT I believe in the United States of America, as a gov¬ ernment of the people, by the people, for the people; whose just powers are derived from the consent of the governed ; a democracy in a republic ; a sovereign nation of many sovereign states ; a perfect union, one and in¬ separable ; established upon those principles of freedom, equality, justice and humanity for which American patri¬ ots sacrificed their lives and fortunes. I therefore believe it is my duty to my country to love it, to support its constitution, to obey its laws, to respect its flag, and to defend it against all enemies.

All of our successes in any way were due to the excellent guidance of our firm friend and adviser, Mr. DePasqua. To you, the Oskey Yearbook of 1942 is dedi¬ cated. Never will we, your students forget your untiring work and interest. We sincerely wish for you a happy future. Arthur RsD. ZHale AMHERST, A.B. HARVARD, ED.M.

DOHERTY Principal Mathematics “A good friend, a good teacher, and a good principal—” these titles are bestowed by us upon Mr. Doherty. Mr. Doherty ' s idea for collecting newspapers to buy defense bonds has received attention from numerous other schools, many of which have followed suit. His guidance has been appreciated by all, and we leave F. H. S. with the knowledge that we can return at will for further guid¬ ance. CHARLES F. FRAZER Sub-Master Chemistry, Physics “Doc,” as he is popularly called by many of the students, is loved by one and all. He regales his classes with jokes and funny stories and as for his fine work in putting on our assem¬ blies these many years it cannot be excelled. “Doc” has de¬ voted much time and energy to our “Oskey " show for which we certainly thank him. Without his guidance our “Oskeys” would not be such great successes. ALICE WIGGIN English Having been teaching school for many years, Miss Wiggin is one of our most understanding teachers. She is always willing to help any one that she possibly can. Being well versed in Philosophy Miss Wiggin is able to quote many helpful proverbs. To you, Miss Wiggin, we extend our sincere thanks and ap¬ preciation for your guidance. PRISCILLA BULLUKIAN Shorthand, Typing, Office Practice, Spanish Miss Bullukian introduced Spanish this year. It has been very successful. Franklin High is certainly fortunate to have such a fine Commercial teacher. She has sent many efficient secretaries into the business world. Her soft voice and endless patience endear her to all. From the secretarial girls especially, “ Thanks for everything.” Her new pupils will certainly enjoy her classes. Page Twelve Nineteen Hundred Forty-Two JOHN RODGERS Mechanical Drawing, Manual Draining The boys and girls of the graduating class who have been lucky enough to have Mr. Rodgers as their homeroom teacher for two years sing nothing but praise for his manner and cheer¬ ful personality. They extend their thanks for his kindness and understanding and hope he’ll remember his “ quiet ” homeroom class. GEORGE H. COLBERT Athletics, United States History, Civics “Coach” has an unusual combination of intelligence, humor, and athletic ability besides many other virtues. He makes his classes very interesting and most enjoyable. The U. S. History classes will verify this. Besides putting his boys in condition for football and baseball, he is also aiding Uncle Sam by preparing them for our line of national defense. JOSEPH DePASOUA Italian, Commercial Law, Geography Introducing our popular teacher and adviser, Mr. DePasqua. Mr. De Pasqua has been active in civilian defense and has had an A. R. P. class formed in school to help us all in case of frouble. The room 210 has always proven popular and crowds of students can always be found surrounding Mr. DePasqua. The class of ' ' 42” wishes to extend the hope that Amherst will receive " Junior” as it did the “Senior. " MARION HOLMES English Miss Holmes can always be found after school, surrounded by English students. She realizes the full importance of this sub¬ ject to all. Her patience and calmness will always be remembered. She is one of the favorite teachers because of her sweet dis¬ position and interest in us all. Her cheery smile will encourage us forever. Many thanks from all. Nineteen Hundred Forty-Two Page Thirteen ROBERT HANCOCK History, Business Practice, Civics Mr. Hancock is the proud father of a son. We hope his son will turn out as well as he did. He is very well liked because of his enthusiasm in his students and subjects and his fine humor. He will always be remembered for his good disposition and willingness to help his students. GORDON H. FITZPATRICK Mathematics Here is a teacher whom the Freshmen class could not do with¬ out. Under his experienced tutelage the problems of Algebra are easier to solve. “ His patience is his virtue,” so many upper¬ classmen say. To see him after class without a group of beginners in ‘‘math " would certainly be out of the ordinary. “A " does more work than ”B” but ”C " does more work than ”B.” Who does the most work? (Ask Mr. Fitzpatrick). J. MURRAY STEVENS Science, Biology, Band, Orchestra Mr. Stevens, the talented director of ' our school orchestra and band, has made our school assemblies and activities very enjoy¬ able with his fine arrangements. His classes in science and biology are very popular as attributed to the fact that many pupils may be found in his homeroom after school. HENRI BEANE English, Economics, Problems of Democracy Mr. Beane is the most popular member of the faculty. It is little wonder that he is so popular, for he is the coach that gave us such an excellent basketball team this year and spurred the boys on to many victories. His English classes are most interesting as are his other classes also. Page Fourteen Nineteen Hundred Forty-Two DOROTHY LINDBLAD Home Economics Miss Lindblad entered high school with us so we both tried to make each other feel at home. Her brilliant ideas and charm¬ ing manner are appreciated by all. She is very capable in her work concerning the cafeteria and has made the girls - tasks easier with her smile and sweet voice. HOWARD ABBOTT French, Mathematics One of the most popular members of the faculty is Mr. Abbott. He is the coach of our second team in basketball which under his firm but quiet direction succeeded in ending the season victoriously with 18 wins to just one loss. His classes in General Math are interesting especially to Fresh¬ man pupils, and his French classes are instructive and enjoyable. EDITH Z. ROSE Business Practice, Typing, Bookkeeping Miss Rose is one of our most cheerful teachers. She came to us in our Junior year, but we got acquainted with her in a short time. She is always willing to lend a helping hand. Perhaps it isn ' t widely known that she plays the piano. I’m sure we ' d enjoy hearing her. PALMA DeBAGGIS English, Latin One of the prettiest and most efficient members of the faculty is Miss DeBaggis. She has made her Latin and English classes most interesting and enjoyable to all. Her fine cooperative spirit and her willingness to help have made her most popular with the students. Her interest in our social affairs is confirmed by her presence at them all. Nineteen Hundred Forty-Two Page Fifteen 0 ALICE BEANE Girls’ Athletics, Salesmanship, Ancient History Whom did we always seek to help us put over our dances and parties? Of course, Miss Beane. She has always been ready and willing to help her students in school work and social ac¬ tivities. As a matter of fact, many of us can thank her for teaching us how to dance. May you always keep that cheery smile and hello, Miss Beane. HOWARD LAUNDRY Boys’ Physical Director Mr. Laundry ' s boys could hardly wait for his classes as he joined in and became one of them in gymnastics. He is always ready to assist in the exhibitions, and everyone enjoyed his new ideas and presentation of them. MARIE RILEY Supervisor of Music Mrs. Riley is one of the busiest women in town, but for all that she finds time to teach some fine songs to the high school glee club. We have always enjoyed her delightful assemblies, and she has always been willing to prepare them in short order. Her girls in Glee Club will never forget her for her patience and good nature. IRENE K. WIGHT Supervisor of Art The pupils under Mrs. Wight have often expressed what novel ideas she presents. We, the graduating class, are able to echo and confirm this when we think of her unique decorations which helped to make our Junior Prom a success. Mrs. Wight ' s art classes have been popular with both boys and girls. We sincerely thank you, Mrs. Wight. You certainly are a living example of the motto, " Always ready, always there.” Page Sixteen Nineteen Hundred Forty-Two MARY DTORIO Office Secretary Mrs. Diorio, better known as " Mary,” is our superb office secretary. She is always at hand to assist both teachers and students in any way she can. The office girls have found her ready and willing at any time to help them with any little problem which might arise in the office. The appreciation of the class is extended to Mrs. Diorio. r c Acknowledgments With profound gratitude, we, the members of the Senior Class, wish to show our apprecia¬ tion for those who so willingly gave up their time to make this, our yearbook, what it is. We wish to thank all the committees, especially the members of the Editorial Committee -—- those who volunteered to help write the individual write-ups and those who aided in typing. No record of appreciation would be complete without thanking Miss Wiggin, Miss Holmes, and Mr. DePasqua who placed us in great debt and no word would be adequate to show our gratefulness for the work they rendered us—Miss Wiggin and Miss Holmes, literary advisers of our yearbook, who corrected all material that went into this book, and Mr. DePasqua, our fac¬ ulty adviser, who advised us on all problems that arose during our four years at Franklin High We also wish to thank all those who, in any way — directly or indirectly — helped to make the publication of this book possible.

JOHNSTON, Jr. 27 Winter Street Franklin “RUSS” “Our basketball player par excellence.” Classmates, meet " Russ” — Vice President of our Junior Class, President of our Senior Class, most helpful Senior boy, most typical high school boy, and football and basketball star. " Russ” is surely very worthy and deserving of his motto. He was not only the highest scorer of our basketball team, but he also received the honor of being the only boy in our school on the All-Tech Tourney Team. The class join together in giving him three cheers for obtain¬ ing that honor. Being one of the best mixers of our class, “Russ” won himself many friends and acquaintances. " Russ’ ” chief ambition is to become a mechanical engineer, and he is also planning to further his education by enrolling at Northeastern University next fall. May you be as successful in mechanical engineering, " Russ,” as you were in serving the office of the Presidency of our class.

HENRY JOHN BARTELLONI 140 Peck Street Franklin “BART” “You ' ve gotta be a football hero.” One of the first 12-letter men to graduate from this school, the only person in our class to have had the honor of being a class officer every year since our organization, voted the most popular boy, best boy athlete, and best all-round boy by popular vote — that ' s " Bart.” He not only had time to spend on his many social and athletic ac¬ tivities, but he was also an average student in all of his classes. " Bart” is planning to matriculate at Boston College next fall. May we see him rise to the fame that Charlie O ' Rourke and many other football heroes have attained.

Page Tiventy Nineteen Hundred Forty-Two 511 Union Street Franklin MARY NINA VARJIAN ‘•MAY " ' ‘Match me with a good dancer.” Everyone is envious of Mary due to her ability to dance exceedingly well. (Why shouldn ' t we be?). Mary is a sports enthusiast, and she shows it by attending the school’s various athletic contests. Whenever you hear anyone yelling at any of our games, you will know that it is Mary as she is a very loyal rooter. (Mary, may you also continue to be so after you leave school) . Mary is one of the fortunate students of our Secretarial Group who obtained a part-time position before graduation; therefore, she is plan¬ ning to continue working. Although you don’t need our wishing you any success, Mary, we are going to wish you some just the same.

AGNES ARLENE McDONALD 17 Church Street Franklin “MICKEY” “She that was fair and never proud, Had tongue at will and yet was never loud.” Here she is! " Mickey” our most typical and best all-round girl. Yes, she is also one of our most studious classmates (she gets good results to show for it, too) . " Mickey " is one of the few members of our class who has that very, very rare combination of beauty and intelligence. She also possesses the ability to talk rapidly, but not loudly. Although she does, very little talking in class, she makes up for it outside. As for her fut ure education, " Mickey " may attend Framingham Teachers’ College. Who knows? She may be teaching our children some day!

Nineteen Hundred Forty-Two Page Twenty-One 429 Union Street Franklin “APPIE” “Mirth with thee I choose to live” Here is a girl who needs no introduction. Everyone kn ws “Appie.” She is always in demand by teachers and students alike. “Appie " has a personality that has brought her many friends. She can usually be found surrounded by a noisy crowd who are listening to her plans for a new prank or joke. (The funny part about this is that " Appie " is usually the last one to catch on to a ' new " joke.) " Appie " is an A-1 pupil and has completed the secretarial course with the greatest success, graduating as valedictorian of the class. Need we say more? Blue and White (Literary Editor) 4.

Why aren ' t they all content like me” “Smilie " is Franklin High School’s gift to the fairer sex. He has decidedly earne d the title of " Clark Gable " for more reasons than one. " Smilie " is a boy who is full of pep and cheerfulness. Everyone enjoys his presence in class because he keeps the " ball rolling " with his clever remarks. Being an able helper of Doc’s, " Angie " has enjoyed many tricks and now he boasts that he knows them by heart. Three cheers to Smilie for a successful future. Keep up with your good cheer, because we all appreciated it. Marshal 4. Ring Committee 3, 4. Freshman Acquaintance Party 4. Hal¬ lowe’en Party Committee 2, 3. Dramatics 1, 3. 4. Orchestra 1.

MELVILLE BAKER Longhill Road Franklin “MEL” “I resolve to study conscientiously” Now here is a boy who has a way of taking life easy but who suc¬ ceeds in whatever he undertak es. " Mel " is a good-looking boy who could easily be pictured in fashion magazine with the latest of men ' s wear. " Mel " has talked to many of us on his interest in aviation and if this is to be his chosen field we can rest assured that he will prove to be a credit to us all. Junior Prom Committee 3. Dramatics 1. Military Training 2. HAROLD BARNES, Jr. United States Navy “BUD” “BUDDY” ‘‘Those who know — do” " Buddy’’ is a likable fellow, always " kidding " someone. He has a grand personality with young and old alike. He carries a soft spot in his heart for a certain Junior. " Buddy " is following in the footsteps of his father and has joined the Navy. The Navy will have no trouble with Bud. as he has a good personality and is easy to get acquainted with. We admire you for your patriotism. Bud! Work hard for your Uncle Sam, and we know you ' ll never regret it! Military Training 3, 4. Page Twenty-Two Nineteen Hundred Forty-Two Franklin 226 West Central RUTH A. BEAUDETTE Street “RUTHIE” “Shy at first, but a good sport when known.” One of those deceiving girls. Ruthie is quiet and serious to all out¬ ward appearances, but she is really capable of much fun-making. She has the faculty of making all friends and no enemies and retaining them like a diplomat. Ruthie is another of our athletic supporters. She followed all the games and ably supported both the participants and cheering section. Ruth ' s ambitions are unknown, but if she perseveres as she has done while in school, she will be very successful in her chosen vocation. Good luck. Ruthie, and never let anything overcome your gay and very ambitious spirit. Junior Prom Committee 3. Freshman Acquaintance Party 4. Etiquette Club 2. Glee Club 1, 3. LLOYD E. BLACKWOOD 92 Pleasant Street Franklin “TEAK” “Laugh and the world laughs with you.” We have never heard very much from Lloyd while he has been with us these last four years. (Maybe he is bashful.) Lloyd seemed to be interested in sports, because he attended quite a few of the games during the seasons. He never went out for sports because he has always worked after school. Lloyd doesn ' t know what he plans to do in the future. But what¬ ever you do, success to you, Lloyd. Military Training 3, 4. DORIS M. BRENNAN 121 Grove Street Franklin “DOT” “A girl with a very pleasing smile Making our classes worth while.” " Dot " is a pleasant and attractive girl who has many friends. She is quiet, but we do like her company. She has proven to be a good sport not only in classes but also in athletics. Dot’s friendly manner will be a great help to her in her chosen field. She has the desire to become a nurse and without the slightest doubt she will prove to be a most capable one. Junior Prom Committee 1. Freshman Acquaintance Party 1. Hallowe’en Party Committee 1. Etiquette Club 2. Home Economics 2. ELWYN BROGAN 71 Cottage Street Franklin “BROC” “Quiet yet pleasing is he” Elwyn is one of the Senior boys who does not have very much to say. (He should make more noise. Don’t you think so?) He is very sociable and has a very nice personality, so I have found out by his friends. Elwyn also enjoys sports very much, but he never went out for the teams for reasons unknown. He has no definite plans for the future but in whatever he does plan to do, all his classmates wish him the best of luck. Basketball 3. Oskey 4. Military Training 3, 4. Nineteen Hundred Forty-Two Page Twenty-Three 228 Summer Street Franklin “GIN” “GINNY” “A Smil e full of sunshine A Heart full of song. " " Ginny” is a friendly and good natured girl who has a lot of friends. She has been a loyal rooter at all F. H. S. games. Although " Ginny " is quiet in class, there is a rumor that she can make a lot of noise when she wants to. A pet peeve of Ginny’s is that in English she usually has the honor of being the first girl called upon to give her oral composition. (Do you blame her?) Keep up your giggles, Ginny, for we know they will lead you to an enjoyable future. Junior Prom Committee 3. Freshman Acquaintance Party 4. Hallowe ' en Party Committee 2, 3. Etiquette Club 2.

He is very sociable, and has an interesting personality. Jimmy has combined sports with studies and done wonderfully well in both. He played basketball and football and deserves much credit for his performances in both. He also has been on the honor roll be¬ cause of his high grades in his studies. As to his life work, Jimmy has not as yet decided, but in whatever he may plan to do his friends are all wishing him the best of luck. Junior Prom Committee 3. Football 3, 4. Basketball 3, 4.

CATRO 79 West Street Franklin “SAM” “He has won just praise that he deserved.” Sammy is one of our most studious fellow students. He takes life seriously and is one of the few who believes in having his homework done daily. Sammy doesn’t seem to care much for the girls, but he did take a certain girl in our class to the Hop last year. Sammy is well-talented in dramatics and has given many successful performances. He plans to go on to college. We wish him loads of luck in what¬ ever he undertakes in the future. He deserves it! Junior Prom Committee 3. Freshman Acquaintance Party 4.

RUTH MARIE COMOLLI 234 Lincoln Street Franklin “RUTIIIE” “Dimples in her cheeks, dimples in her chin, You ' re always sure of lots of fun when Ruth comes rushing in” Ruthie has been chosen as the best-dressed senior girl. (She always did look nice didn’t she?) Of course, no added remarks need be made about her hair, which, as you probably know, is her own natural wave. Ruth has more than the usual share of attractiveness and with her personality plus, she will get along. Ruth has not decided yet whether to be a hair dresser or an art de¬ signer, but we are sure she will be a credit to whichever she chooses. Junior Prom Committee 3. Blue and White 4.

She certainly has been an answer to Doc ' s problems at assembly times for one was never quite complete without her. We’ll always remem¬ ber the swell work she put into every Oskey Show especially this year’s. But these are only a few of her attributes. She is a born leader and nothing whatever appalls her. The title of the best-looking girl in the class has become hers. Cookie’s bright smile and cheery manner will bring her success we know. Junior Prom Committee 3. Senior Hop Committee 4.

Central Street Franklin “DOT” “BLOSSOM” “A smile full of cheer’’ " Dot " is one of the newer members of the class having entered Franklin High from Keene, N. H. at the beginning of our Junior year. " Dottie " has been a most welcome addition to the class not only for her cheerful, good-natured self but as a good addition to our orchestra. Dot plans to attend Wilfred Academy in Boston after graduation, but as we gazed into our crystal ball we foresaw Dottie changing from a " Cook” to a ‘‘Miller.” Orchestra 3, 4.

JOSEPH CORNETTA 69 East Central Street Franklin “JOE” “I must have music’’ " Joe " has been told by his many friends that he could easily make his fortune by doubling for a famous comedy star. (Three guesses who!) Joe’s ambition is to form an orchestra of his own and play at all F. H. S. dances! Joe has music in him, so we don ' t doubt that he will become a famous orchestra leader. Good luck, Joe, and keep up with your music. Junior Prom Committee 3. Hallowe’en Party Committee 3. Band 1, 2, 3, 4. Oskey 3, 4. Military Training 2, 3, 4.

She is a de¬ voted player of basketball, and it certainly is a pleasure to watch her play. " Margie” has plans of attending a hairdressing school, and we feel confident of her success.

Nineteen Hundred Forty-Two Page Twenty-Five EDWARD CHARLES DAILEY 100 Union Street Franklin “EDDIE” “A speedy youth in more ways than one.” Introducing the captain of 42’s undefeated basketball team, Eddie Dailey. “Eddie” has been, until recently, a quiet boy, active in sports but with little interest in girls. At present he has proven himself to be very popular with the fairer sex. In fact, we can’t keep track of his heart interests. How many of us have noticed and commented upon the springy jumps that “Eddie’’ is able to accomplish for a “high one” on the basketball court? Just keep your aim for success in the future as you did your aim for the hoop, “Eddie,” and you ' ll be right on top. Junior Prom Committee 3. Basketball 1, 2, 3, 4. Baseball 2, 3, 4.

CHARLES DANGELO 32 Hutchinson Street Franklin “CHARLIE” “COUSIN” ‘‘Fun loving and gay is Charlie all day.” “Charlie” is one of our swell football players. Whenever he played, he went in the game to win. On the field or in school, “Charlie” is one of the best-natured Senior boys. Speaking of boys, “Charlie” was always seen with his cousin (which is quite unusual). “Charlie” is thinking of becoming an aviation mechanic. If he works at his favorite ambition as he did at school, we can be sure that he will succeed. In order to keep the planes flying, the United States must have “Charlie” as their mechanic. Good luck, Charlie, and “Keep ’em Flying.” Junior Prom Committee 3. Football 4. Oskey 4. Military Training 3, 4. WILLIAM W. DANGELO 18 Hutchinson Street Franklin “WILLIE” “BILL” ‘‘Always a-grinning, always a-winning , always a-feeling fine.-” “Willie,” like his cousin, is another of our football players and one of our Senior boys who is liked by everyone. Although “Willie” played only one year of football. Coach Colbert and the remainder of the football team will certainly miss his performance on the field. “Willie " always pals around with “Charlie” and for cousins they get along very well. Both are always having a jolly time just for the enjoyment out of it. “Willie,” like his cousin, also wants to take up aviation mechanics. With his winning personality, he is bound to win success. Football 4. Oskey 4. Military Training 3, 4. ELEANOR DeGRAZIO 68 Alpine Place Franklin “SHORTY” ‘‘Always gay and full of fun, Shorty’s a pal to everyone” Eleanor is one of our petite seniors, but that doesn ' t make much difference because as the old saying goes, “Good things come in small packages.” (They are not always noiseless, either). When laughter was about in the room, “Shorty” would be in the midst of it. (1 wonder if she laughs all the time.) She does all the time while in school. As her life work, Shorty would like to take up nursing. With her sweet smile and cherry laughter. Shorty will be the favorite as a nurse. Success to you, Shorty; success is in your way.

Page Twenty-Six Nineteen Flundred Forty-Two HENRY DeGREGORIO Alpine Place Franklin “BUGSIE” “DeGREG” “Quiet is of me no friend Give me noise without end” " Bugsie " has been voted the " class tease, " and no one who knows him wonders why. He is always joking with his fellow classmates and the teachers have been no exception. He is always ready with a quip and often makes himself the butt of his own, and others’ jokes.

MARIE WILSON 344 Oak Street Franklin “RE” “A nymph of healthiest here’’ Everyone knows Marie to be a most friendly classmate even though she seems much more reserved than the other girls. But she has her silly moments, too, for she has often been heard to giggle when she is with her pals. Her thoughtfulness for others and gay spirit have won her a host of friends. We ' ll all remember her grace to blush whenever she was being teased. Marie does not believe in doing things half way. Her conscientious work in whatever she undertakes established that idea in everyone ' s mind. Certainly Marie cannot help but succeed in the future with such a friendly disposition.

The membership of our group was 136 and as the first few days of homework went by, we gradually became accustomed to the rooms, teachers, and contemptuous comments of the upper classmen. In October we attended the annual Freshmen Acquaintance Party, given in our honor. Although its object was to make the freshmen feel at home and on a level with the upperclassmen, most of us just sat around with mouths open, gazing at the bold few who ventured the art of dancing. Soon after this event came the Hallowe’en Frolic, at which we enjoyed the plays, games, and refreshments — although we tried to keep out of the way of sarcastic seniors in order not to have anything blight our fun. When Thanksgiving rolled around we had the chance to show our talents in the Freshmen Thanksgiving Assembly. All who took part did very well under Miss Wiggin’s direction and we began to feel ourselves taking root. The institution of a new method in the Athletic Association proved to be very popular. The dues for membership were just 2 weekly, and for this price the members could see all of the home games in football, basketball, and baseball. This method continued until 1940. In February a Leap Year Dance was held, during which the females had full control and most certainly enjoyed it. During our first year the French instructor, Miss Lawrence, departed and Mr. Abbott replaced her, becoming a regular member of the staff. Time went swiftly by, and near the end of May we learned that Miss Littlefield, our Latin teacher, would not be with us next year, for she had married, becoming Mrs. MacGregor. Thus ended our Freshman year. When we returned to school in the fall as full-fledged Sophomores, (most of us, anyway !) looking back at our freshman year, we felt that we were really “grown-up.” We soon organized and elected the following offi¬ cers : President — Samuel Catro, Vice-President — Eileen Maroney, Secre¬ tary— Esther Nardi, and Treasurer — Henry Bartelloni. Mr. DePasqua was elected as C ' lass Adviser. Nineteen Hundred Forty-Two Page Forty-Five This year we were well represented in all activities, sports, orchestra, band, as well as in the Oskey Barndance show which the Senior Class held. Although a privileged few attended the Junior Prom and Senior Hop, the majority felt that we sophomores were not quite up to attending such elaborate social functions. At last came the year for which we were waiting. We were now of the Junior group and looking forward to a more responsible position as students and as a class. Our first duty was to elect officers, which we did. Henry Bartelloni be¬ came President. Russell Johnston was Vice-President, Mary Varjian was Secretary, and Agnes McDonald was Treasurer. After a few weeks of school, we received a change in our regular daily schedule when Mr. Doherty announced that on Tuesdays and Thursdays our periods would alternate, thus breaking up the monotony and making things easier for the teachers and especially the students. A Ring Committee was elected consisting of Angelo Arcaro, Claire Landry, and Charles Tracy. The Oskey show was a minstrel this year and a great many Juniors took part, adding to their credit as actors and entertainers. Miss Keefe resigned this year to be married and Miss Edith Rose replaced her. The Junior Prom was a gala affair and the gymnasium was decorated in the form of a showboat. Spanish moss, hung from the ceiling, was very effective and the whole creation earned worthy credit to the artistic deco¬ rators. In return for this reception the Senior Class gave a ticket to the Senior Hop at Lake Pearl to each Junior. Returning to school as dignified Seniors we discovered that we felt not half as “big” as we had when we were Freshmen. Moreover, we realized that this was our last year of high school and we promised to make the most of any opportunities presented to us. Page Forty-Six Nineteen Hundred Forty-Two The following officers were elected: President — Russell Johnston, Vice- President— Henry Bartelloni, Secretary—-Mary Varjian, Treasurer — Agnes McDonald. Various committees were elected for the Oskey, Hop, and Yearbook and many other class activities. During the Christmas vacation, the Senior Class held a dance and many of the alumni attended. Our annual Oskey show was an Old-Fashioned-Modern Review, and, although there were many unforeseen difficulties, the show ran for two nights with a capacity crowd. Our membership has dropped to 76 students in the class of 1942 and mem¬ bers of our class and former classes have left school to join the various ser¬ vices of our country. We are very proud of these boys and we know Uncle Sam is also. As we draw nearer to the close of our high school days, the Senior Class remembers with pleasure the four years spent so happily here at Franklin High School. We hope we have learned our lessons so well that we, the class of 1942, may be a credit to our Alma Mater. Audrey Johnson — Historian Nineteen Hundred Forty-Two Page Forty-Seven GLASS WILL XX ' E, THE SENIOR CLASS of Franklin High School, in the county of Norfolk, in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, knowing our end to be near, but being of sound mind and body, do make, publish, and declare this to be our last will and testament, thus revoking all former wills made by us. FIRST: We desire that our just (and also unjust) debts be forgotten by those to whom we owe them. On account of the increase in de¬ mand of buying War Bonds, and also the increase in price of bananas, we are not able to meet our debts in the manner pre¬ scribed by law. SECOND: We give, devise, and bequeath all of our money, bonds, securities, estates, and the remainder of our property, real or imaginary, (chiefly of the second class) in the manner set forth at length in the body of the will.

To Mr. Frazer, a dozen fountain pens so that he may keep his classes well supplied. To Mr. Colbert, a poet’s license so that he may write how his relatives won the World War. To Miss Rose, a book on bowling instructions so that she may learn that she is to throw the ball and not let the ball throw her. To Miss Bullukian, a microphone so that her pupils will not have trou¬ ble in hearing her soft voice. To the rest of the faculty, we bequeath the pleasure of having taught our class. TO THE JOLLY JUNIORS: To Marshall Richardson, some Cinnamon Rolls. To Virginia Clark, a year’s subscription of “Hob-by” Magazine. To George Ellis, a book entitled “Go East, Man, Go East.’’ To Harriet Parsons, a contract with Carnegie Hall so that she may display her brilliant talent at the piano. To William Gurwitz, a bigger truck, so that he may bring in more papers for the paper drive. To the rest of the Juniors the pleasure of being Seniors next year. TO THE SOPHISTICATED SOPHOMORES: To Charles Jenest, a suit of clothes, so that he may send back his brothers. Page Forty-Eight Nineteen Hundred Forty-Two To Leonard Campbell, a check made out to the barber, so that he may keep his hair cut. To Eleanor Garelick, a book on debating points, so that she may win her debates in the French Class. To Omer Godin, a record of “Sweet Marie.” To Gertrude Bent, a Milford telephone directory. To the rest of the Sophomores a book on manners written by Miss DeBaggis. TO THE FICKLE FRESHMEN: To Donald Daddario, a timer to help him in playing his drum.

To Barbara Sancomb, a song entitled “Du-Da.” To Ann Martello, a box of growing pills. To the rest of the Freshmen, because of their childish manners, the privilege of wearing bibs at every meal. Lastly we hereby appoint Ivanhoe as executor of the last will and testament, hereby revoking all former wills made by us, in witness whereof, we have hereunto subscribed our names this twenty-fourth day of June, in the year One Thousand Nine Hundred and Forty-Two.

JOHN MILTON FOOTBALL O N THE first Friday in September Coach Colbert called football practice. As the Coach looked over these forty or so candidates, he saw only three veterans, Capt. Henry Bar- telloni, a veteran of three years, Tony Saster, a veteran of two years -and Russ Johnston, a veteran of one year. When the Blue and White took the field against Medway, it had eight men who had never played organized football before. Losing to Medway and then again to Canton the following Saturday set these fellows on the right track. In the next three games the Blue and White won by decisive victories. The back field positions were held down by Capt. Henry Bartelloni, " Chubby” Tracy, " ' Willie ' ' Dangelo, " ' Jimmy” Capaldo, Bill Spence, and Joe Carr. The boys opening the holes and taking the blunt end of the battle were Russ Johnston, Ray Mercer, Tony Saster, Butch Saster, Charlie Dangelo, Henry Melin, John Genoa, John Mazzone, Joe Momjian, and Jerry Johnson.

After the second North Attleboro game, the team went on an outing to Providence and saw a college basketball game. Then we had a lapse but still kept up our winning streak. Next came the Woon¬ socket game which everyone thought would break our record, but we came through once more. After our second game with Dedham we had another lapse when we encountered Mans¬ field, but came back again when Lexington came down here. Our final fray was with Woonsocket, the tightest game of our schedule. We won again and had finally accomplished an undefeated season. We received an invitation to Tech Tourney and accepted. We were matched with Rockland. We played the game in the spacious Tufts Gymnasium, and lost out by one point. 36-35. Having had a successful season, we were feted by a testimonial banquet given by the townspeople, and were presented with jackets. We elected for the ensuing year Joe Carr as Captain.

These boys worked well together and a few of the boys substituted in some of the varsity games. The Junior Varsity Club was composed of two separate teams. The Juniors were the regulars and the Sophomores were called the “Ponies.” These two groups generally split their games up, each team playing a half. There was keen competition between the groups, each trying to play better than the other. This kind of training should bring results in the follow¬ ing years. Also there is a Freshman team as well as a Junior High School team. Both of these teams are developing rapidly. BASKETBALL Franklin Ind ' s Opponent Wrentham 25 9 Bellingham 39 9 Mt.

The team was slated to compete in the Bay State League, but due to the lack of transportation the League was broken up. The Blue and White started its season by defeating St. Mary ' s 7-6, Mansfield 9-4. and Bellingham 7-3 and 11-8. Coach Colbert had six regulars back and. with only three positions to fill, wasn ' t presented with a job that would be considered too difficult. The lineup was as follows: Henry Bartelloni, " Bob " Harris, " Eddie " Dailey, Captain " Chubby " Tracy, " Joe " Carr, Sydney Worster, " Ray " Mercer, Elwyn Brogan, " Charlie " Jenest, " Butch " Saster, Henry Melin, " Jimmy " Capaldo, " Jerry " Johnson, and David Sewell.

The purpose of this program is that every girl in high school who enjoys playing for fun or the satisfaction of competing against her classmates has the opportunity to do so. In this type of program she also has the advantage of taking part in any sport she chooses. The point system has been increased so that a girl may take part in any of the follow¬ ing sports: volleyball, softball, basketball, and badminton. These sports are run off through¬ out the year and a girl may acquire as many points as she wishes toward her award of numerals, letter, star, and emblem. Each participant in these may receive the following points: Volleyball 20 points Badminton 20 points Basketball 30 points Softball 30 points Posture 30 points Posture plays an important part in the sports system for the improvement of bodily carriage as well as for the earning of points toward awards. A girl must take part in a definite number of games played in any sport to earn her points. The following are the points necessary for various awards: Numerals 100 points Star 200 points Letter 170 points Emblem 300 points These points are carried on from year to year so that all have an equal chance of earning the various awards. The basketball tournament proved very successful this year, with the Junior Third team winning and the Senior Second team running a very close second. The Freshmen had a tournament of their own, and the games were both exciting and interesting. In the badminton tournament P. Martin and D. Lloy won the doubles championship with H 1 . Eastman and V. Clark as runners up. B. Young took the title in the singles defeating H. Eastman. In the Freshman tournament J. Manter and B. Buchanan won the championship with S. Mahoney and C. Scapatici as runners up. To the right are pictures of the winning teams in volleyball, basketball, and badminton, and also group pictures of girls who will compete against each other in softball. Page Sixty-Six Nineteen Hundred Forty-TuJo CHEER LEADERS T HEY say that enthusiasm is contagious. No better proof of this can be found in our own school than at our various athletic games in which the cheering is conducted by the cheer leaders. Our cheer leaders were also partly responsible for our many basketball victories. Their untiring efforts were evidenced when they were invited as guests to the basketball testimonial banquet. This year’s cheer leaders include Anna Bertoni, Virginia Cataldo, Claire Kennedy, Eileen Maroney, Vera Martello, and Mary Morrissey — Eileen Maroney and Vera Martello being the only Seniors.

The orchestra is not only popular with its members but also with the entire student body, partly due to the fact, perhaps, that it has mastered a theme song which is liked by all •—• “Remember Pearl Harbor.” This year the orchestra has done much at its regular meetings which have attracted the attention of everyone—it not only plays classical songs but also popular ones. Mr. Stevens has been planning to prepare the orchestra to play at our socials as a dance orchestra. We hope that he will be successful in his plans. The orchestra this year has rendered selections at various places; namely, at the Chamber of Commerce Banquet, Alden Club Play, ' Oskey,’ ' Assemblies. Class Day, and Graduation. Mr. Stevens deserves great praise in his work with the orchestra this year.

Each year the Commercial Club finds ways to raise $75 to give as a scholarship to a very worthy commercial course student. This year the Club raised the money from the proceeds of the " Blue and White " and by sponsoring the Thanksgiving Dance. The members of the Club were also rewarded for their efforts. On October 17a social party was held among the Club members in the Art Room, and in December a Christmas party was held at the home of the adviser, Miss Bullukian. T n January the Club, accompanied by several members of the faculty, went bowling at the C Alleys and during May played golf at the Golf Range. In February the Commercial Club took a very patriotic move by postponing a candy sale due to the shortage of sugar. The officers of the Commercial Club are as follows: President .Carolyn Cook Vice President .Marie Wilson Secretary .Violet Apalakian Treasurer .Jean Lyons Club Adviser .Miss Bullukian In addition to the officers the Commercial Club is composed entirely of Seniors: namely, Ruth Comolli, Eileen Grinnell, Milton Guinard, Claire Landry, George Landry, Agnes Marco, Eileen Maroney, Florence Melin, Florence Ristaino, Myrna Sewell, Ann Stewart, Mary Varjian, Eleanor Wyllie, and Norma Yankee. Page Seventy-Two Nineteen Hundred Forty-Two GLEE CLUB T HIS year ' s Glee Club under the able direction of Mrs. Riley seems to be one of the most popular clubs in the school due to the fact that it has twenty-two members —- more mem¬ bers than any other club in the school. Its meetings are always held on Mondays and Fridays immediately after school until two o’clock. The Glee Club was asked io render many pieces during the year; namely, at the Christ¬ mas assembly, Class Day, and many of the local clubs. The members and director are always receiving congratulations for their fine work. This year there has been -nge in the manner of singing; that is, the club has begun singing A capella. Mrs. Riley feels that she has a very fine group this year and has enjoyed working with the girls. The members of this year’s Glee Club include: Director: Mrs. Riley Accompanist : Janet Peterson Mary Borrusso Virginia Brunelli Theresa DiMarzo Betty Eastman Helen Eastman Jean Feeley Dorothy Freeman Neva Hlancock Jean Lyons Vera Martello Caroline Mucciarone Delia Nasuti Betty Ober Anna Papazian Jeannette Raney Priscilla Ribero Ruth Salaveuis Evelyn Shores Ruth Sklar Marion Worsman Virginia Yankee Betty Young Nineteen Hundred Forty-Two Page Seventy-Three OSKEY T HIS year ' s " Oskey " show was in the form of a Gay Nineties and Modern Revue, being held on April 15 and 16 with a capacity audience on both nights. Both " Russ” Johnston and " ' Johnny” Honcharuk shared the honor of serving as masters of ceremonies—“Russ” pre¬ senting the modern numbers and " Johnny” presenting the numbers of the Gay Nineties. Under the able direction of " Doc” Frazer and the Chairman of the Oskey committee, Carolyn Cook, we can very confidently say that it was a success. Our faculty adviser, Mr. DePasqua; pianist, Harriet Parsons; costumer, Miss Wiggin: conductors of the chorus and orchestra. Mrs. Riley and Mr. Stevens, respectively; and other members of the committee, An¬ gelo Arcaro, Samuel Catro, Ruth Comolli, Jean Lyons, and Esther Nardi are also worthy of praise. The work of those who took part in the chorus and specialty was also splendid. We hope and feel assured that next year’s class will be as succesful. Page Seventy-Four Nineteen Hundred Forty-Two BLUE AND WHITE THEN is the ' Blue and White’ coming out? " is the question that the " Blue ar.d White " V T Staff is always asked by various members of the student body. The " Blue and White, " which is our school paper, is entirely free of advertising mat¬ ter, is edited by the members of the Commercial Club with the cooperation of the class re¬ porters, and is published three times a year, fall, winter, and spring. This year the change was made in the " Blue and White " —a standard cover was adopted which was used on all issues. The proceeds of the " Blue and White. " this year as in previous years, wete deposited towards the Commercial Club Scholarship Fund.

Due to present war conditions, the annual band boat trip to Provincetown, which is looked forward to by everyone, will not be held this year, but the band is planning some other type of trip to take its place.
