We dood it! !! CHa Onation Communism, Yesterday and Today Ladies and gentlemen, members of the faculty, students and friends: I have chosen as the subject of my class oration for tonight the topic of Communism, Com¬ munism Yesterday and Communism of Today. The reason I have chosen this subject is that never before in the history of the world has any one issue caused so much con¬ fusion, so much controversy, so much difficulty, and remained so little understood. I say “so little understood” because actually—how many people really know just what Communism means today and what it meant yesterday. How many of us know what a Communist really is and why he is a Communist. Ladies and gentlemen, I have taken it upon myself tonight to attempt to answer these questions, and in my own humble way, to offer a solution to combat this menace which is spreading like a pestilence throughout the world. Let us look at the Communism of Yesterday. Communism was started with the idea of equalizing conditions among all the people. It is in many ways the direct op¬ posite of the capitalistic system, inasmuch as it provides for the abolition of the in¬ equalities in wealth, and is based on a common ownership of property, industry, and management. All money garnered by the Communist society is equally divided. Com¬ munism takes its name from its underlying principles of sharing all things in common. Prior to the first World War, very few Communistic communities existed. Since then, Russia has come under the rule of the Communist Party, and has formed a Soviet system of government. Communism, however, does not exist in its pure form there, due to the modification of its cardinal principles adopted by the Russian Dicta¬ torship to meet changing external and internal economic conditions and to carry on commercial relations with other countries. Now I will try to explain the Communism of today, the way I see it and the way the world sees it. First, let us look at the philosophy of Communism. The whole phil¬ osophy can be summed up in the phrase, “the end justifies the means.” It is the Com¬ munistic belief that any means can be employed, whether it be good or bad, murder or friendliness, trickery or concession, deceit or love—to achieve a goal. Thus we hear of it being friendly to religion on one hand, and persecuting it on the other; then we hear of it on the side of democracy one week and trying to overthrow it in the next. In Communism, all this trickery, cunning, and lowness is justifiable because its phil¬ osophy says there is nothing wrong with how anything is done as long as the goal is achieved. And what of the people who go to make up Communism? What «f the Commun¬ ists? What kind of a person is he? By a close examination into Communism as it ex¬ ists in America today, it can be seen that Communism has its greatest appeal to the frustrated and the disillusioned. These people have a pent-up hatred and evident dis¬ like for some person, some class, some institution or form of government, and because Communism can give them a chance to openly express their hatred and animosity to¬ ward these institutions, persons and classes, then they are all too quick to join. The majority of these people who have joined Communism have not done so because they feel that Communism is right, but rather because it gives them a chance to openly despise the wrong which has been grieving them. Every Communist has a hidden hatred toward someone or something, so he feels that if he joins Communism, he will be able to “let himself go,” as it were and thus spew forth all the hatred that has been pent up within him and let it rush forth like water from a dam that has burst its retaining walls. CLASS ORATION (Concluded) Disease in any form has a certain revolting effect upon all of us. The doctor who is called in the early morning hours to a house where perhaps pneumonia has struck at the body of a youngster analyzes the case and in his heart there is a hatred and dis¬ taste for the germs which are causing the sickness. But there is corresponding love and affection for the young man whose body happens to harbor the germ. So the medic pits all of his skill and energy in an effort to drive the evil germs out of their habitat. It seems to me that there is an analogy between this account and the manner in which we should look at Communism and attempt to handle the problem. We may have a violent distaste for the Communistic idiology but we must never lose sight of the fact that there is a human being at stake who may happen to be harboring this conception which we abhor. We must attack this problem from the human angle, and strive to eradicate the disease germ of Communism and prepare the human being for a better way of life. Friends, I have laid the known facts before you, the true facts of Communism of Yesterday and Today; I have tried to explain it as a disease, and now Ladies and Gentlemen, my solution. I said earlier and will continue to say, the Communistic So¬ ciety has members who are “frustrated and disillusioned.” Will imprisoning, annihilat¬ ing and persecuting these people put an end to Communism? The answer is obviously No. They do not offer any solution at all. The only possible solution is kindness and charity to make the Communist see the light and see all that a true democracy has to offer. In closing, I should like to leave with you a definition of Communism which will enable you to recognize it wherever it may appear. It has been said and rightfully so, “Victory is their only heaven; defeat their only hell; revolution their only God.” John Turco CfaM dHUitanij. I’m sure there is one thing everyone likes to do and that is reminisce. That is just what I’m going to do now and I know it will remind you of your high school days. On September 7, 1945, one hundred and five graduates of Thercn Metcalf Junior High School, feeling as though they owned the world, entered the premises of F. H. S. Will we ever forget how high and mighty we felt? It didn’t take long for that feeling to leave I assure you. We were soon made to realize that we were babies and were treated as such. The first of October we attended the annual Freshman Acquaintance Party, our first social event. During the day we were well initiated, 1 remember distinctly. Our first feeling of doing something really worthwhile came when we were asked to put on the Thanksgiving Assembly. Such dramatic ability we displayed. Our next duty was to elect our class officers. The boys seemed to be our favorites as shown by the election: President .... Vice-President Secretary .... Treasurer . Jack Doherty . . Peter Antico Hector Chenard . . . Fran Marco We also elected Miss Beatrice Mercurio as our class adviser for the next four years. Before we knew it, we were sophomores and so much more experienced in high school life. GixTs began to share the duties and honors of class officers. President Vice-President Secretary .... Treasurer .... .Dick Yankee .Dick Dupre . Caroyln Doe Marilyn Abrahamson Among our few activities we sponsored the Valentine Dance which left some broken hearts, some mended ones, and some new flames; that latter made it a success. Our boys wei ' e well represented on the football field and we were very proud of them. Several of our classmates took part in the Oskey. We were very proud of the Pickaninnies, who started out for Hollywood but ended up in Bellingham for a com¬ mand performance. After the Christmas holiday came several changes in our faculty: Mrs. Roche, our math teacher, left and Mr. Fitzpatrick resumed the place he had left to join the armed services. In February Mr. Colbert came back to take over as head coach. At the end of the year we said goodbye to several teachers: Miss Alberto, Miss Cirioni and Miss DeBaggis who left school to turn to domestic life. In September we welcomed Miss DiAntonio, Mrs. Pond, and Miss Apperson to their respective positions. Soon the time came when we could truly be called upper classmen—the reason— why, we were juniors: CLASS HISTORY (Continued) Our class officers were: Dick Yankee Peter Antico Betty Lyons . Iona Blake President Vice-President Secretary .... Treasurer The first item on our list was to order our class rings and pay the deposit, and thus many pockets were empty. Several birthday parties outside of school were of major importance since most of our juniors were sixteen and thought the happenings worthy of celebration. This year we changed our schedule so that we had an hour on Friday which we used for Club Periods. There were several new activities started. The Service Club has done several things for the welfare of the school. The Glee Club is one of the lar¬ gest in many years, many numbers from famous operas having been learned and sung by the girls. Other new clubs are the Sports Club, Radio Club and Camera Club. Before the year was over Mr. Rodgers, after many faithful years of service as Manual Training Teacher, left and Mr. Masi became one of the teaching staff. The basketball team this year was one of the best in a long time. We played at the Boston Garden and Boston Arena. We tied for first place in the Midland League and the play off game was held in the Armory in Framingham. I’m sure none of us will ever forget the game we played against Marlboro when there were two overtimes and a sudden death period. We are very proud of Fran Marco, who was a regular on this wonderful team. The greatest event of the year was the Junior Prom. We worked hard on the decorations with Johnny Turco and Donald Martin as the ladder squad, and Carol Garelick racing around with multicolored stars in her arms. “Stardust” was the setting and music was rendered by Kid Boots and his Orchestra. The Grand March was led by Ray Mastromatteo and Iona Blake. Everyone had a wonderful time and I’m sure we’ll never forget it. Seniors at last! In the fall of ’48, we walked with our heads high. It was our turn to make the freshmen succumb to our command. Seniors—what a wonderful word- like music to our ears. We lost one more member of the faculty by the resignation of Miss Nichols. She was replaced by Miss Young. First, our class election was held with the officers remaining the same except for the vice president, now Fran Marco. A few weeks later the senior girls were found combing their hair and fixing their make up—the boys dressed as though they were mother’s little darlings again—the reason: Class Pictures. The Christmas Dance was held on December 18. It was a success, thanks to the efforts of the social committee. The next event was the Class Play, “Dear Ruth,” which was held on February 28. 1949. Because of popular demand we presented it again Monday evening Commence. CLASS HISTORY (concluded) ment week. All those in the cast had so much fun putting it on that they were sorry when it was all over. Miss Beane presented her exhibition with almost all the senior girls participating. Congratulations, Miss Beane, for another wonderful show! After the third marking period, Mr. Doherty announced the honors. A week later we held a class meeting to elect those to hold Class Day Honors. This year’s Junior Prom, the traditional reception for seniors, was held on May twentieth. The Grand March was led by Dick Yankee and Jackie Led bury. The scene was that of a garden in spring. We extend our congratulations to Mr. Masi and the Juniors for a job well done. At this time we want to express our appreciation for the guidance given us by our class advisor, Miss Mercurio. We shall never forget her sincere cooperation and help¬ ful advice. This week, as you probably know, means a lot to everyone of us and I know we’ll never forget all the events which take place. I hope that my going back over these four years has recalled pleasant memories to everyone here tonight.

CHa b (Pnojpkteu The other night I switched the television onto the Red Sox—Yankee game. Fenway Park came in beautifully so I shed my shoes and settled back for a quiet evening of baseball. Maybe I even closed my eyes for a minute—but I opened them suddenly, for a familiar voice was trilling, " Buy me some peanuts and cracker jacks. " It sounded exactly like ROSE MARIE AIMONE. I couldn ' t believe my ears, though, until another voice broke in with, " That was Rose Marie Aimone, accompanied by Spike Jones. " Sure enough, down by home plate was Rosie, backed by JACK DOHERTY, CRIS PRETTO, LARRY NASUTI, RAY RECCHIA and JIMMY LOCKLIN, led by the maestro, of course, and doing weird things with trumpets, an accordion, drums, and a trombone. " What " I asked myself, " Is going on? And what is BARBARA BAXTER do¬ ing up there in the announcer ' s booth? " As if in answer to my startled question, Barbara went on, " Not only is this the opening game of the 1959 season, but it is also the first game for the Sox since they were purchased from Tom Yawkey by JIMMY WARE. And now BRENDA BACHNER is unveiling a monument to Ted Williams, out in left field. The ground-keepers were at work on the infield. Out there dusting off the first base bag was MARY MARKARIAN; she evidently got her experience tidy¬ ing up counters at Newberry ' s. Then I saw that the governor was preparing to throw out the first ball. To my amazement, it was ROY HOLMES. By this time, I was ready for anything. I gave only a short gasp when the Boston players rushed onto the field in ARGYLE socks. The announcer went on to explain that these were an innovation introduced by CAROL GARELICK, who had a long¬ term contract to produce the club ' s hosiery. The team ' s sharp new uniforms were the work of two Barbaras: GENOA and JOHNSON, and ROSE MARIE CORNETT A had turned out the dashing new caps. I looked the players over. Why, there were FRANNIE MARCO and MIKE DICAMILLO in the outfield—and PETER ANTICO had put Junior Stephens out of business, while DICK YANKEE was catching! What ' s more, the umpires were ALBERT NAJARIAN, DONALD SEWELL, and BOBBY MACDONALD. The first New York batter bunted down the third base line. The pitcher fielded the ball, threw to first. " Safe! " yelled the umpires in unison. At this point who should charge from the dugout, but Manager JOHNNY TURCO, determined to exchange a few well-chosen words with the umpires. The tirade was nipped, however, by the appearance of a green Ford on the playing field. Out stepped JOYCE HUTCHINSON and MARIE CATALDO with Marie apologizing for making such a large hole in the wall, explaining that she had somehow misjudged a corner somewhere. As the camera focussed on the yawning gap, I recognized to one side a huge blown-up shot of JUNE JOHNSON and a shampoo bottle, while on the other was a big picture of ARTHUR CLARKE wearing an Arrow collar. Over on the opposite wall I later saw a shot of PEGGY ALLEN, in a bathing suit, gazing soulfully at a tube of suntan cream. Now the crowd was on the screen. Over on the third-base line sat a hoard of squealing school children, chaperoned by ANNE MCGUIRE, FLORENCE NICHOLSON and LUCIA FICCO. Nearby, busily stoking the little darlings with hot-dogs and orange soda, were HOWARD ARNOLD, FRANKIE DEGRAZIO, MATTHEW FONTAINE and JOE DIROSARIO. CLASS PROPHECY (Continued) Back in the broadcasting booth NANCY RIBERO, who had acquired the Southern accent traditional with the best sports announcers, was on the job in¬ terviewing celebrities who had come to Boston for the game. ROGER RONDEAU introduced as ' ‘Franklin ' s answer to Montgomery Clift, ' ' had flown on from Cal¬ ifornia with JIMMY WILSON, the country ' s top supersonic pil ot. SHIRLEY DANA national titlist in golf and tennis was there, along with BILL BARNETT ( ' ' The only man in radio who can talk faster than Winchell; " ) the new Broadway com¬ edienne, GERRY YANKEE, AGOST1NO DEBAGGIS, publicity director for the Metropolitan Opera Company and GEORGE OBER, top bowler in the United States. Over in the press box the camera picked up the reporters and columnists. BETTY LYONS, CONNIE THAYER, RALPH GASBARRO (with his ghost writer, RUTHIE SIMS) and BETTY GABEL were frantically attempting to keep tally of the several dozen home runs being hit out on the field. There had evidently been some debate as to whether these homers were due to the superior physical prowess of the boys or to the ultra-rabbity rabbit ball recently invented by LAWRENCE PASQUINO. Here a hub-bub arose on the field; the Boston pitcher had neatly " beaned " the Yankee batter with one of these super-balls. Out rushed DR. JOHN COOK and two nurses, BEVIE SURNER and THERESA FAR¬ RELL. Bringing up the rear was MELBA MANN, the doctor ' s secretary. While this quartet was giving aid and comfort to the enemy, the scene shifted to the stands. A blinding flash of gold braid caught my eye; it was Ad¬ miral FRAN MOLLOY. Two seats back was BOBBY DION, in Marine regalia and absolutely loaded down with ribbons, while just in front was FRANK QUINN in a Merchant Marine uniform with stripes half way up his sleeve. Then my eyes were attracted to a gentleman nearby who was lighting his cigar with a twenty dollar bill; RAY ALLARD has evidently made a small fortune. Trotting up and down the staris was EDWARD BESTERFIELD. He was really a veteran at ushering, with all his years of experience at the Morse Theatre. At the end of the fourth inning there were more celebrities on the aid. RON¬ NIE SEDERMAN was still clowning around—and being paid for it by Barnum and Bailey. BARBARA THOMPSON, PATTY BROWN and LOUISE BROTHERS had just returned from the wilds of Africa with a National Geographic Society expedition. IONA BLAKE began to read a message from the sponsor, the JO¬ SEPH GOODWIN Dandelion Evaporated Milk Company, but when she came to the section ' ' The Milk from Phlegmatic Cows, ' ' poor Iona broke down. ROGER FORGIT came on to state that he had come to the game from Iowa (he raises corn out there) and mentioned that CHARLIE PILIGIAN, the multi-millionaire chicken man, is his best customer, and that BETTY DAVIS, who lives ' ' down the road a piece " from his farm, had won every Mid-Western pie-baking contest in the past five years. As the fifth inning rolled on, the drone of an airplane could be heard—but no, it wasn ' t a plane; it was a flying saucer. It hit on the grandstand roof and off stepped EDDIE THIBEDEAU. He explained that he had " hitched a ride from South America with the owner, ALDO VENDETTI. " Even this phenomenon was ignored, however, when MABEL KING came to the microphone with a notice. Every seat in the park was sold out for the rest of the season. Already, down in the bullpen, JOE BUCHANIO was hammering away on new stands. Then BAR¬ BARA BOULANGER rushed in to say that the last World Series ticket has just CLASS PROPHECY (Concluded) been sold. Suddenly BETTY SNYDER dashes madly in, " Cleveland, Philade- phia and Detroit have just wired their regrets, they ' re afraid to face these terriffic new Red Sox. Boston is conceded the league Championship on opening day. " DONALD MARTIN, the Braves ' new tub-thumper, stood to one side and looked down his nose at the jubilant crowd. " Nice, " he said, " But the Braves will naturally win the Series in four straight. " The screen went blank for an instant, and then the game was resumed. But that was Williams out in left, and there were Doerr and Johnny Pesky. Had everything been a dream? I ' ll never know—until opening day, 1959. Carolyn Doe CHabb °WiM We, the class of nineteen-hundred forty-nine, of franklin High School in the town of Franklin, Norfolk County, Commonwealth of Massachusetts, U. S.

Class C Milford, the first team on the Panther’s well-rounded schedule, gave them a hard fought battle and a much-deserved victory, 7-6, to start the season off in high-spirits. Spurred on by their earlier win, the team next went on to trouce Medway, 12-0. Following this by uncorking an amazing passing and running attack, the Panthers went on to romp over Westwood High, 37-18. Picking up where they had left off the preceding week, the Panthers swamped Somerset, 26-6. In the one loss of the season we were defeated by Foxboro, 30-0. This game was a heartbreaker, for it also lost the team the Class D Championship, but it did not stop the boys because the next week the Panthers went on to defeat St. Mary’s, 12-0. Traveling to North to play our traditional rivals, we again defeated them for the second consecutive year. The score was 12-6. To climax this great season we were victorious over Medfield, 25-0 to establish a new gridiron record by winning seven games out of the eight that were played. Ralph Gasbarro Boys’ Sports Editor BASKETBALL The 1948-49 Panthers Basketball Squad won eleven and dropped nine hard fought but well lost games in their twenty game series. Having only one veteran player, the Panthers got off to a slow start. Captain Fran Marco, the only veteran from last year’s quintet, sparked this year’s squad. The team composed of all newcomers to varsity ball except Captain Marco dis¬ played a fine brand of Basketball in all of their games along with the showing of good sportsmanship. F. H.

BASEBALL Striving to equal last year’s record of eleven wins, one defeat, the 1949 baseball team began its season with five victories bringing its winning streak over a period of two years to sixteen consecutive wins. Then after dropping a one-run decision to a strong Foxboro Club the team ral¬ lied to climb back to the victor’s column. Judging from the fine performance of the team thus far, the remainder of the season should satisfy the Franklin fans and also leave another successful record in our Baseball History. F. H.

On our stage Feb. 28, we presented “Dear Ruth” with a cast that so resembled the original, that we ourselves were surprised. The cast did a magnificent job, and plaundits of approval rang throughout the hall voicing the esteem of the audience. Although a near capacity crowd attended the performance, a stormy night kept many away. Because of this fact and because the play was such a success, “Dear Ruth” was again presented during Commencement Week, whereby capacity audience was able to witness a class play that would be long remembered as one of the finest ever presented. We would like to express our thanks to Mr. Beane, our capable director, who de¬ voted so much time and hard work to make “Dear Ruth” the unforgettable success it was. OSKEY It was “all aboard” for the Franklin “Oskey Railroad Station,” directed by Henri C. Beane, and presented to the public on May 5th and 6th. Talent, originality, and color were the outstanding features of this year’s review. For the first time in Oskey h istory, a full orchestra accompanied all the specialty numbers. A singing chorus of fifty pupils, selected from the four classes, provided a musical background. The enter¬ tainment was superb, with comedy, acrobatic dancing, vocal solos, trumpet, clarinet, and saxaphone solos, tap, ballet, and piano solos. Scenes from the two famous Broad¬ way shows, “Brigadoon” and “Kiss Me Kate” were featured. Comedy was at its best in dialogue imitations. The audience was treated to a rare exhibition of ballet and acrobatic dancing. Once again, the Oskey, with the brilliant help of Henri Beane, has shown us that there is an abundance of talent among the youth at Franklin High School. GIRLS ' PHYSICAL EXHIBITION Precision, uniformity, and color characterized the Girls’ Physical Exhibition this year, which was planned and executed under the capable supervision of Miss Alice Beane, physical director of the Franklin schools. Variety was the keynote of the program which included marching, trimnastics, stunts and pyramids, volleyball, badminton, folk and square dancing, relays, roller¬ skating, and a tap dance. The roller-skating number was an innovation that proved highly popular. The tap dance demonstrated the skill of the girls, not only in the foot¬ work, but also in the handwork that created their costumes which were replicas of ancient Indian dress. It was a colorful, well drilled number which climaxed the ex¬ hibition. i ■ ho. (lHULlXiL, umjLAjla £6 yj-u (yf V?
