Freshmen taught the rules of armed warfare at F. H. S. Mr. D. lays down the law for all students, especially the seniors (probably fear of an acute wave of senioritis). October Columbus discovered America and Nathan discovered the Freshmen. Nath¬ an finds something else about the Freshmen. They aren ' t all boys, you know. November Thank goodness for Thanksgiving (sleep, ah, it ' s wonderful. First football game on Thanksgiving in years). Hallowe ' en—after boot training in F. H. S., the prize terrors of our fair high school are let loose to terrorize the town of Franklin. December Purdy was last seen driving away from F. H. S. in a heavily loaded armored truck (that money from Brink ' s was borrowed by high school seniors to pay for their graduation pictures). The mob broke loose from the guards for Christmas vacation. January After being dragged back to school, they welded our balls and chains back on, and resolutions were made by Mr. D. and company that we would settle down to good, hard, work for the rest of the year. Resolution quickly forgotten (although not by the faculty). February More holidays. Valentine ' s Day—Flash. Our Ed. finds the Valentine ' s spirit overwhelming and gives in finally. Senior class play—offer received to take the place of South Pacific, but Mr. D. thought otherwise. March St. Patrick ' s Day dance. Huge success, but we lost money. Pool room closed to minors (temporarily). Our President held out thru Valentine ' s Day, but at St. Pat ' s dance gives in, too. April Spring vacation—start of spring fever, too—Seniors have had it for two months, already. Barnum Bailey have met their match—Oskey Circus huge success. Maybe we get our yearbooks after all. May Teachers get out the bull whips to get underclassmen thru the year. Prom comes—goes! Religious class attendance drops overwhelmingly low. June Underclassmen bid fond farewell to seniors. Teachers likewise (with a sigh of relief). With us gone, the barbed wire entanglements are then removed from Study Hall. Glass Oration A CASE AGAINST SOCIALISM One of the great problems of the world today is whether or not to socialize. It happens that in many countries we already have socialism and America has been more than touched by its principles and effects. Socialism is simply the dividing up of the wealth of a nation among all its citizens and control of all industry, farms, and other businesses by the government. The state controls everything from the price of milk to how much education, where one shall study, and in what field. It plans every¬ thing from the extent of railroads to the amount of wheat that is to be grown. It is really an artificial economy, a planned one. In America Socialism is now showing its head. It is slightly disguised but can still be recognized. It appears in the form of Federal conservation projects and power plants. Its first appearance is as a benefactor in the government’s Tennessee Valley Authority. This is a large government electrical power and irrigation project. With this tool the government has gained control of the livelihood of most of the people in that area. This control brings reduced freedom to the people and is a start in one field toward socialization. We are the ones to decide whether this socialistic trend will continue to grow or whether it has run its course. One of the reasons that Socialism gains such support is the things it supposedly gains for the individual from the material standpoint. The nature of people has much to do with its immediate popularity. We humans like the idea of getting something for nothing. This doesn’t usually work out too well because we have to pay for every¬ thing eventually. The idea of getting something for nothing regardless of whether we are deserv¬ ing or not is not good. I should like to point out reasons other than the above ethical one as to why I do not believe in socialized industry. First, Socialism if put to work will ultimately lead to dissention among groups and within groups. A good workman who doesn’t get recognition for his work over that of a poor workman will eventually slow down to a lower efficiency. This will occur in a socialistic state and will destroy personal initiative. Secondly, socialized industry also destroys the incentive to progress when there is no competition. It is common sense that if we don’t have to improve our products or our method of making them to keep ahead of the competition there will be no in¬ centive to increase quality or productivity and this necessary evil retards production. Thirdly, there is endless “red tape” involved with socialized industry which is government controlled and operated. Industry must comply with all government reg¬ ulations which have to do with everything from the buying of materials to the price of the finished object. With all these necessary controls of the socialized industry there is much red tape which slows down everything, and there is not much one can do about it. This red tape would surely strangle the productivity of a nation encoiling plant by plant. An example of these evils is the industry of England which has been socialized in part. The government has set goals on industry with its control of almost everything of importance and it still can’t make industry reach its quota. This is a fair example and a good one of what to expect from Socialism. We may believe socialized medicine to be a panacea in this desolation of mis¬ takes. But is this the case? One can get medical attention, but can he get it when he wants it? We know that some people will overdo a good thing. People with nothing wrong will try to have something wrong with themselves so they can see the doctor and keep up with the Joneses. This has happened in England. People there have over¬ loaded the doctors, dentists, and other men in medicine and its many branches. It takes many months to get glasses in England. A man who breaks his glasses may be unable to do any work in any personal safety for several months. CLASS ORATION (Concluded) This is an example of what can readily occur with overloaded medical facilities and equipment, but this is not so bad as another possibility. Perhaps a woman be¬ comes sick and cannot get sufficient medical care. The doctor cannot give a complete enough examination. Even if he could, medical facilities are so overloaded that he couldn’t use all the proper tools of his trade. They aren’t available. Even if every¬ thing is under control except the need of hospitalization this also is out of immediate reach for like everything the hospitals are overloaded. With all these difficulties it is certain that the health will be undermined. The upswing hasn’t been great but it has increased. This in the actual field of medicine has been enough almost to condemn the pro¬ gram but there is also another angle. This is the staggering cost of the health program. Experts’ guesses were wrong and the expense of running the program has been way too high to allow its continuance without putting a great drain on the economy of the nation. With all these disadvantages socialized medicine doesn’t shine as brightly as when first presented. At best it is no better than it was before socialization. Probably the greatest fault of socialism is its vulnerability to Communist infiltra¬ tion. The Communist and Socialist political theories are alike in most respects except Communism is ruled by a dictator and the Socialist state by a legislature. This close relationship has many disadvantages. The Communists as a well organized minority can infiltrate into the Socialist party and advance as the Socialist party advances. When in power the Socialists have the chance to substitute their own men in office. The Communists in the party will also get positions of rank and power. Their power will eventually extend over the police and other security forces under their influence. By substituting fellow Communists in these groups they gain complete charge of these or¬ ganizations. When the time is right th ey strike. With no organized resistance the country falls to the Communists. Czechoslovakia is an example of where the above pattern was used. This vulner¬ ability to Communism is one of the worst aspects of Socialism. With Communism there comes the stiffing of Religion, Education, and Freedom. With these the people of the world will not progress but regress—slaves to a dictator with nothing to look for or to. Socialism is one of the things on the horizon for Americans to decide for or against. I have concerned myself with the negative side which I believe outweighs the posi¬ tive side. Our American way of life has made us the richest and most prosperous people on the earth. We should know all the angles before we decide to substitute anything for our American way of life. We are the ones who will suffer from, or enjoy, the fruits of our decision. PAU L REMINGTON Glass Prophecy In the spring of 1960 I was stricken with a sudden urge to travel but couldn ' t lind any particular reason for doing so. It wasn ' t until I started to look up travel folders that I decided it would be fun to look up the members of my class and see just what the future had held in store for them. It all began when I found RONNIE GIANETTI in one of the travel agencies in Boston, where he was mapping out trips and continuing his favorite pastime of selling tickets. We naturally talked about old times and I found out the follow¬ ing from him: BEVERLY MACKINTOSH is still very much interested in horses and had just that week entered a horse at Suffolk Downs which won the sweepstakes. The WEBB TWINS are still working together, having reached the top of the medical profession, and are running a clinic of their own. HAROLD GILBERT is now managing the Red Sox with no one else for his star pitcher but JOSEPH MCDERMOTT. EDDIE MCNALLY, LAWRENCE MORRISSEY and FRANCIS OBER have entered the construction field and have a large firm of their own. SALLY EASTMAN is operating a roller skating rink just outside the City and is a most popular instructor. Before I knew it, RONNIE had sold me on the idea of a tour of the United States. Early one morning I started out on the first lap of my journey, which was to take me to New York City. As I made a round of night clubs whom did I find but LEO PALLADENO, running one of the best. His chorus was really a source of luck for me in my search, for there I found KAY OBER, BARBARA NASUTI and REGINA FAENZA. Wishing to re-style my present hairdo, I found, in a perfectly gorgeous beauty salon, ROBERT FELCH, acting as manager. During our conversation, I learned that JOAN LAWRENCE is making a name for herself by advertising a personal shopping service for men who dislike doing their own shopping in the feminine line. I had a long talk with her and found that she had met DEAN FISH, RICHARD DAVIS and JOHN MCCARTHY in her shop, all of whom told her that they are professional models for men ' s sportswear. No visit would have been complete without a trip to Yankee Stadium where JACKIE GENTILI was being acclaimed a national baseball hero. It was here, too, that I met LEON BERTONE, handling a large peanut and popcorn concession very nicely. On my way to Washington, D. C., I made a short stop in Philadelphia just in time to attend Carnegie Hall, at a concert which was being given by LOUISE THIBEDEAU. Washington was all I expected and more too. A visit to the Senate led me to PAUL REMINGTON, who was breaking all filibuster records, and BEATRICE ROMETTI, his very capable secretary, was keeping up with him as only she could do. I found RUTH EMMONS carrying on in the Department of Labor, as a most efficient secretary. While walking along the Basin and enjoying the Cherry Blossoms, I was delighted to meet JOHN STEWART who is a major in the U. S. Army and RON¬ ALD DOLLOFF, a captain in the U. S. Navy. Both of these men were very hand¬ some in their official uniforms. CLASS PROPHECY (Continued) Going on to Miami, I found Florida rather uneventful until I stopped at a very elaborate gas station and was very happy to find none other than BOBBY EKSTROM, who proved to be the owner. Here at last I had found someone who might be in a position to have seen some of my classmates. Sure enough, he had seen several during the winter. ARTHUR ADAMS and ANITA JOHNSON had been there touring the country as soloists with KENNY DEROSIER ' S orchestra. DONALD WAMBOLT was featured as star drummer. HELEN BROWN, I learned, is a sportswriter for a large newspaper syndi¬ cate, while JUNE CROWTHERS is also writing a newspaper column giving the latest tips on Homemaking. CLAIRE BARDOL is a weather observer atop a high mountain in the West and is winning acclaim as tops in the profession. GLORIA DROWNE is a member of the artist colony at Provincetown where her work is gaining fame daily. I was amazed to hear that ARLENE FITZPATRICK had retired after making a fortune advertising a lifetime guarantee on how to have curly hair forever. She is now handing out the formula free of charge— " Be born with it. " JOHN HALLISEY is still the same old playboy—Enjoying a life of travel without a care in the world. Continuing on, I finally reached New Orleans, where a holiday had been declared because of handsome movie hero, NORMAN BOUCHER ' S, personal appearance. Staying for the reception, I was pleasantly surprised to see HARRY PAKSARIAN, his body guard, doing an excellent job protecting him against the onslaught of Bobby Soxers. My next stop was Houston, Texas. The first thing I saw was a large bill board, advertising Charles Atlas, and none other than GEORGE LANDRY was posing for it. Striking out into the real he-man section of the state, I found RALPH DE- LUCIA and PAUL JONES well established on immense ranches. I soon reached the Rio Grande and crossed over, just hitting the border of Mexico. Here was our old friend ARTHUR MARINGAS, being practically mob¬ bed by the Mexican senoritas while playing his guitar. Arizona, the Sunshine State, had been the choice of BEVERLY BELYEA for the rest home she is running. JANICE MACDONALD had just arrived two weeks before my visit, to become her partner in the enterprise. I was sure I would meet more classmates in California, and I did. My first call was on JUNE YANKEE and LAURA WOOLLEY, who were on the west coast modeling for magazine covers. Together we started to locate more of our class¬ mates. LESTER SIMPSON had a large orange grove where he specializes in seed¬ less oranges. NATHAN SHAW was very busy producing what he hoped would be a play worthy of being the hit of the season. Wanting to look over the movie lots, I started out one morning early to make a day of it. It proved most interesting. Hearing a terrific uproar at one of the studios, I was informed that the female Laurel and Hardy of the day were on location. I can ' t say I was surprised to find them to be none other than AN¬ GELA BISCOTTI and THERESA GEROMINI. BETTE PASOUANTONIO, who had been on the coast for some time, was enjoying a vacation from her vocation of professional cheerleader at Notre Dame. A long chat with her gave me the following news: CLASS PROPHECY (Concluded) NEIL MCGROARY is traveling with the Metropolitan Opera Company. WILLIAM O ' NEIL is considering the presidency as head of Columbia Univer¬ sity, while MATTHEW HERMANS is making a trip to the North Pole in the in¬ terest of science. CHARLES BORRUSO is fast becoming a noted historian, his best work to date being " The History of the Class of 1950, Franklin High School. " TINA CUGNO is our number one F. B. I. woman, with MARLENE TURCOTTE her able assistant. Traveling on the Oregon, I found PAUL LAWTON well established as a physician in Portland, while JOHN MORRISSEY was in charge of a lumber camp farther north. JOSEPH PULSONE ' S sheep ranch was one of the wonders of Montana. I found the Middle West particularly interesting, especially when I discover¬ ed JACKIE LEDBURY perfectly happy in her little home on the prairie. Our visit together furnished me with more interesting news of my classmates. BETTE ANN DIMARZO has tired of waiting for the Navy to come to her, so she has gone to it, by joining the Waves. VIRGINIA HOLBROOK is fast becoming a radio comedienne, co-starring with JOHN PADULA. KENNETH CLARK is a big executive in one of Detroit ' s largest automobile concerns and ROBERT BURKE owns a large chain of taxi-cabs, still insisting on being one of the firm ' s drivers. In Buffalo, I was pleasantly surprised to see DOLORES COTELLESSO being featured as a singer, while VIRGINIA ELLSWORTH was being hailed as a ballet dancer. My trip was fast coming to an end. It was time to look up the rest of the mem¬ bers of the class, some of whom I remembered as still being close to home. I called on DORIS FERTITTA, who is happily settled in a beautiful home in Norfolk, while EVELYN BROTHERS and MAE BRUMMITT have also chosen to become homemakers, instead of career women, and have stayed in Franklin. JACK DODAKIAN is famous everywhere for his thoroughbred chickens, and LUELLA GATIE is doing office work in one of our largest manufacturing establishments. LOUIS MOLINARO is well established as head master in one of our largest colleges, while PAUL MORRIS has started a trade school in Worcester in which he specializes in the training of janitors. NORMAN RYAN is the proud owner of a beautiful bowling alley, while HUGO SANTORO is doing wonders with his machine shop. Once again I was checking over my list, when and to my amazement over the radio I heard a very familiar voice, which turned out to be that of JANET SAUNDERS, who was reviewing the results of the day ' s sports. At last I had found the eighty-two members of the Class of 1950. My trip had been beyond anything I had expected, and I was already looking forward to repeating the experience in 1970. I had found that the illustrious class of 1950 had kept its resolution to make the grade come what may and had made use of every opportunity offered. My faith in every member has convinced me that the next ten years will find more fame and greater success for each and everyone of us. IRENE C.

LAURA M. WOOLLEY Glass History On one pleasant day in September in the year of 1946, a large body of students entered the doors of F. H. S. destined to become to Class of 1950. The first teacher we met was our principal, Mr. Doherty. He nearly froze us to our seats during his opening day speech. He sternly cautioned us as to what he ex¬ pected of us through the next four years. If he were trying to scare us on to the right path, he certainly succeeded in doing it! As the days went by, however, we acquired a deep respect and genuine admiration for ou r principal. Whenever a helping hand was needed, he was always ready and willing. Our first social gathering was the annual Freshmen Acquaintance Party. At this time we became full-fledged students of F. H. S. With smiling faces and knuckle¬ breaking handshakes, the seniors almost mutilated our arms from our bodies. They succeeded in extending to us a hearty welcome! After Christmas we elected class officers. Those elected were: President . John Gentili Vice-President.Louis Molinaro Secretary . Kathy Kenny Treasurer . June Yankee For class advisor we elected Mr. Beane. Our Sophomore year started off with a bang! We elected class officers very early in the year. They were: President.Jack Gentili Vice-President . Louis Molinaro Secretary . Jackie Ledbury Treasurer . June Yankee This year Mr. Fitzpatrick took over the reign of class advisor. Our only social activity worthy of note was our Sophomore Social. Although few attended, all had a wonderful time. Our Freshmen and Sophomore years passed very quickly. We made many friends and was constantly seeking more. We passed the first two years with flying colors. As the Junior year approached we looked forward to another prosperous year. “Upper Classmen” we were called—a title we had long sought. Immediately we elected class officers: President.Jack Gentili Vice-President . Louis Molinaro Secretary . Jackie Ledbury Treasurer . June Yankee Due to other duties, Mr. Fitzpatrick, like Mr. Beane, had to withdraw as class advisor We, the Senior Class of 1950, wish, however, to express our grateful appre¬ ciation for their help in guiding us through our first two years. Mr. Masi, a friend in need, came to our assistance and became a third, able advisor. In the field of sports, many of our athletes made a name for themselves. In 1948 on the gridiron we won seven games and lost one. A record that speaks for itself. The Senior Class was represented by such worthy players as Leon Bertone, John Mor¬ rissey, John Padula, Jack Gentili, Joe Pulsone, Norman Boucher, Ralph DeLucia, Dean Fish, John Hallisey, Hugo Santoro, Nathan Shaw, and your historian. A large portion of credit goes to Coach Anthony Pisini, whose long hours of constant drilling and brilliant coaching brought forth this splendid team. Representing the Senior Class in basketball and baseball were noted players as Jack Gentili, Bob Burke, Kenny Clarke, Bob Ekstrom, Ronnie Gianetti, George Lan¬ dry, Paul Lawton, Joe McDermott, John Padula and Leo Palladeno. Many hair-raising performances, exhibitions of clever styles on ball-handling and clean sportsmanship spotlighted their record. A substantial addition was made in our school during the summer months previous to our Junior year—a new modern and artistically decorated cafeteria. For the first CLASS HISTORY (Continued) time in many years students were able to purchase hot lunches. To Miss DiAntonio and her efficient helpers, we, the Class of ’50, express our sincere thanks and grateful appreciation for a job well done. In order to raise money for our yearbooks, a Movie Review was held in the High School Auditorium. Mr. Masi and Mr. Chilson gathered together many candid shots. These films made a big hit with the students and the class profited financially. A few weeks later, Miss Beane and the girls from her physical classes presented a very interesting program. Roller-skating was featured as a girls’ sport at this time by the Junior girls, which gave more girls a chance to participate in extra-curricular activities about the school. As “time waits for no man” before we realized it the biggest and gayest social event was soon to take place. The Junior Prom under the careful direction of Mr. Masi, with the help of the art classes, made an elaborate spring garden scene, but only after long hours of hard work. The Grand March was led by Dick Yankee and Jackie Ledbury. Ben Lancisi’s orchestra furnished the music. As the end of our Junior year rolled around we found that we were at the thres¬ hold of a new adventure. We realized that after one more year our high school days would be over. We would soon take an active part in life. This was our last chance to make good, so, into our senior year we came. A dignified and sophisticated lot we were! At our first meeting we elected class officers. The officers remained the same ex¬ cept for Ronnie Gianetti who was now President. The Christmas dance was quite successful. Many thanks to the committees who made it possible. The annual Senior Class Play was held in February. The title was " Mother Is A Freshman.” The leading parts were played by June Yankee and Nathan Shaw. The cast was very well selected by Mr. Beane. They presented an excellent performance. A very successful food sale was held in April; we could have sold much more food, if we had it. During Lent we sponsored a movie which was shown at the Morse Theatre. The proceeds were used to swell the Oskey Fund. With a chorus of fifty students and many talented young stars, an excellent Oskey Circus furnished thrills and entertainment for old and young. Barnum and Bailey might well look to their laurels, since the Oskey Circus of April 27th and 28th. On behalf of the Class I wish at this time to thank Mr. Beane and Mr. Masi for their splendid assistance in preparing and presenting the Oskey. Santina Cugno earned the unique title of Franklin High’s “good citizen.” This was indeed an honor, for her title was awarded not only because she had achieved a high rank in Social Science, but also because she was voted by the faculty as a student who should represent her school at a meeting of youthful good citizens in Boston. The Parent Teacher’s Association sent Santina Cugno and June Yankee, two worthy seniors, to attend a session of the United Nations Conference. Thus the Class of ’50 ex¬ tended its spirit into the Great Wide World. At a special class meeting on April 21, Mr. Doherty announced the scholastic honors. Valedictorian.Marian Webb Salutatorian.Mary Webb First Essay.Louise Thibedeau Second Essay. William O’Neil Third Essay.Arthur Maringas Fourth Essay. Louis Molinaro At the same meeting the following additional honor parts were voted. June Yankee . Will Irene Dorr . Prophecy Laura Woolley . Gifts Paul Remington.Orator and your Historian.Charles Borruso CLASS HISTORY (Concluded) After our spring vacation our social activities really claimed the spotlight. On May 19th, the Junior Prom was held. The Grand March was led by Ronnie Gianetti and Joan Wyllie. The setting assumed the shape of an Enchanted Ballroom. To Miss DiAntonio and her Juniors we extend our sincere appreciation for making this an evening of enchantment. Baccalaureate services were held Sunday evening, June 4th. At this time we re¬ ceived the Blessing of our Lord and heard an inspiring message delivered by Mr. Trueman J. Menadue. The Senior Class Play was again presented on June 5th. As was expected the cast turned in another fine show. On June 6th the graduating class of 1950 were honored guests at the Alumni Banquet. The worthy accomplishments accredited to the Class of “50” are definitely a re¬ sult of the untiring efforts of our splendid guide, Mr. Masi. Words are inadequate to express our sincere thanks to him for the inspiration and help he has given to us these past two years. We have planned to spend tonight in a gay mood of laughter and pleasant reminiscing. Tomorrow evening we shall assume a more dignified attitude. We shall be pre¬ pared to receive the honors for which we have been striving. So Classmates: Although we go this way but once, Why not make the journey worth-while, Giving to those who travel with us A helping hand, a word of cheer, or a smile? We go this way but once. Ah! never more Can we go back along the selfsame way To get more out of life, undo the wrongs, Or speak the words we knew but did not say. We go this way but once. So let us make The roads we travel smooth and bright By helpful, kindly deeds and tender words, Smoothing the path with pleasant smiles and laughter light. But though we can’t retrace our steps, We can count the score, and tomorrow will bring us another chance to try once more. Your Historian, CHARLES BORRUSO Glass mil We, the Class of 1950, being sound in body and mind? do make this our last will and testament and do bequeath all of our property, real and imaginary, acquired during our four years at Franklin High School in the following manner. We also declare all previous wills and testaments as well as promises to pay made by our class as null and void.

T O THE SOPHOMORES: The right to emerge from their daydreams and assume a position of some importance in Franklin High School life. I, Mary Webb, leave my interest in presidents to Marilyn DiMarzo. I, Kenneth DeRosier, leave my position as first trumpeter in Professor Howard ' s band to Ronald Yankee. I, Beverly Mackintosh, leave my ability to get bounced from Math class to Janet Faenza.

I, George Landry, leave my art of progression in the lunch line to Charles Varjian. I, Eddie McNally, bequeath the putty knife and paper bag to Barston Beder- ian in hopes he will keep F. H. S. free of gum. CLASS WILL (Concluded) TO THE FACULTY: To Mr. Masi, we give back the ten years which the Class of 1950 took from his life. To Miss Marrs, we would like to leave the five hundred dollars she lost on her car, but due to circumstances we leave an I. O. U. To Mr. Doherty, we leave a record and amplifier which will automatically go on at 1:45 and continuously repeat throughout the gym until 3:30, " Sit on the bleachers. " To Mr. Howard, we leave a new " Goldilocks " to replace the one he loses this year. In the presence of the following sound and authorized witnesses we do de¬ clare this instrument to be our last will and testament on this eighth day of June in the year of our Lord, one thousand nine hundred and fifty.

The boys played a hard season of football against such strong teams as St. Mary’s (Brookline), a new and very capable addition to our schedule, and Foxboro, Class D Champs of 1948. Our first Thanksgiving Day game in many years was played with Medway and a very large crowd saw the Panthers trounce Medway 33 to 9. We, the students, along with the teachers and people of the town, are very proud of our team’s record and give the highest praise to our two co-captains, Jack Gentili and Charlie Borruso, and to our faithful coach, Mr. Pisini. Senior members of the team of ’49 who were the mainstay of the squad in addi¬ tion to the co-captains were these: Leon Bertcne, Dean Fish, John Morrissey, Norman Boucher, Joe Pulsone, Ralph DeLucia, John Hallisey, John Padula, Hugo Santoro and Nathan Shaw.

The fighting Panthers, nevertheless, finished in second place in the Midland League, and were invited to the Eastern Massachusetts Small School tournament, be¬ ing defeated in the opening game with St. John’s of North Cambridge. Our two co-captains, Ronnie Gianetti and Bob Buffone, did a swell job in leading the Panthers through the season. Also a great deal of credit goes to Jack Gentili, the sharp shooting guard who scored 196 points, followed by Bobby Buffone with 171 points and Junior Martello with 145 points.

Members of the golf team are Leo Palladeno, Skip Gilbert, Alex Manocchio, Jig¬ ger Borruso, John McCarthy, Eddie McNally, Charles Jones, Ronnie Yankee and Zoo Yadisernia. GIRLS ' SPORTS “Scorers, timers, end captains ready?” These were the first words that the Frank¬ lin High School lassies heard when their basketball season got underway this year. Strangely enough the very same words were used to inaugurate the girls’ sports sec¬ tion of the yearbook in 1930. We certainly feel that they can be used again—and de¬ finitely with as much, if not more, enthusiasm, for we lost only one game and that by a lone point. Although basketball probably held the spotlight of importance for most of the girls, field hockey, badminton, and softball also held sway during the course of the year and each sport had its contingent of enthusiastic followers. Under the point sys¬ tem of achievement the intei ' est of all girls was kept at a high pitch. : i9| : mm SENIOR AND JUNIOR INTRAMURAL WINNERS CHEERLEADERS Cheerleaders Tina Cugno Mary Webb Marian Webb Bette Pasquantonio Jackie Ledbury Jean Cameron Pauline Guisti Pauline Howard Years of Par ticipation 3 3 3 2 2 2 1 1 With a total of 5 seniors on the squad we take our share of the credit for the pep and good spirit displayed at all our games—win or lose. c Autographs Autographs ttmuv.:::::::: IfegSUHa ’ ••• i • ••‘ ...11 • »««»»» •»»• «. MOTHER IS A FRESHMAN Several talented actors and actresses were brought into the limelight when the class play of 1950 was presented, for the chosen play, “Mother Is A Freshman,” gave ample opportunity for acting skill to be shown. A capacity audience witnessed the first performance held on February 20th at the Franklin High School Auditorium and a repeat performance is a part of Senior Week Activities. Our thanks and appreciation go to Mr. Beane under whose very able direction the play was made a success OSKEY It was a circus that attracted the crowds this year to the annual Oskey Show, presented by the Class of 1950 on April 27 and 28. There were several acts by members of our very talented class. The underclass¬ men and the Franklin High School Band also added to the show. Much of the success of the Oskey we owe to Mr. Beane whose work, time, and untiring efforts will always be remembered by the participants of the Oskey. OFFICE STAFF AND CUSTODIANS Franklin High School would not seem like F. H. S. without the familiar faces of Mrs. Diorio and Miss Boghosian, Mr. Dailey and Mr. Clark. Mary and Nora are always on the job at the office devoting their time and efforts to the students and their problems. Mr. Dailey and Mr. Clark add their hard work to that of the office staff in making the hi gh school a pleasant place in which to work. The Class of 1950 thanks them all. f 1 1 ’ ' ■ t K: wm % BAND GLEE CLUB . ' " ggs s s s gi — -.....-|gg| .£ ---- - sK Si w %• ' k T TV| 1 9 " r| 1 jHyft •• rs?
