This phrase has been instilled into the J - minds of American citizens since they began their first schooling. What made this phrase a conclusive statement in the definition of Americanism? For every con¬ clusion there must be a reason. In this case, there are many reasons. First of all, there is the power which has been proved to the highest degree by the victories of all its defensive wars. Secondly, there is the respect America has for individual rights and privileges. For example, a person choosing America as his homeland is free to work at any vocation he sees fit, worship what and where he pleases, and voice his own original opinion on any subject so long as he doesn’t infringe on these srme rights of another individual. A third and equally important reason is America’s form of government—a government which rejects any form of or attempts at dictatorship and in its stead is operated by its populace. A form of government such as this is very easily misused since it requires so much trust, but, if followed to the letter, it can be as effective as the highest possible standard of leadership. Needless to say, it has been mishandled and misinterpreted since it is the nature of many people to take advantage of a good thing to satisfy their own well-being. The common man of this country may scorn at the mention of our equal rights and democratic regime. The taxes climb higher and higher and the cost of living grows greater, and the only excuse he gets is that it is all for his own good, and that times have changed. Some of this may be true, but there’s usually some schemer with his monkey-wrench at work jamming the vitals of a would be, well-run political machine. Without some failings, America would be nothing short of an Utopia, and since it is directed by mortal men, heavenly results are impossible to achieve. Mixing the good with the bad, we find our vices deeply overshadowed by virtues —virtues which are winning us the respect of many foreign lands. This is the key to leadership in any instance. On the battlefield, an army is almost useless if the mem¬ bers of it haven’t any respect for their leader. But an officer, with the trust and re¬ spect of his men, will battle against overwhelming odds, and nine out of ten times come out on top. This applies here only on a much larger scale. Many foreign countries are today finding themselves slowly but surely being adjusted to American leadership. They like it! They’ve never experienced anything like it before, but they are working at it mainly because they realize it is the right way. A tangible example is Japan, our most dangerous and hated enemy less than ten years ago. She is well on the way to acceptance of American leadership. When you think of eighty million people who believe that they’re heaven- ordained to rule the world, casting away their century old beliefs for something they have never tried before, you can’t help but realize how important a stable leadership is to prevent them from being sorry for the chance that they took. This is where America comes in, to make sure they are not to regret their undertaking. Our diplomatically-skilled representatives are expected to persuade these countries to follow the right way of government and use our own as a model. Never has the need for uniting the world population been so great. After the last war, the battle-scarred countries of Europe were (and many still are) in dire need of material uplift as well as spiritual. There were thousands of homeless families separated either by confusion or death; industry and output of manufactured goods dropped to zero. All in all, these lost countries were subject to any treatment by a powerful country, good or bad. This is where the long, repulsive, Page Forty-six Nineteen Fifty-one CLASS ORATION (Concluded) oppressive arm of Communism stepped in. There were exchanges of promise and talk of good will until the Kremlin had officially taken over. The people were happy for a few weeks at the hope of a recovery for their homeland, but after not too long a time their hopes were crushed as they realized what they had submitted to. There is now no immediate hope for these countries, and the only good that can come of it is America’s hope that the brother nations of these beaten countries, which are still free, will learn the lesson provided and make the right choice. These countries need leadership, good leadership, by a nation which is powerful and ambitious enough to take on the task; and task is only a mild expression for this undertaking. It is almost like teaching an adult, who is handicapped, to walk again. First of all, the countries are by far overpopulated, but this could be remedied by making the people spread out. Some foreign market places, about the size of an average New England town, hold as many people as some of our cities. The ultimate result is poverty, disease, and unsanitary living conditions. There is the decline of educational systems, social training and interests. Their governments are corrupt and their doctrines outmoded. There is no unification within the countries. All the ideas on country welfare of people who are not too ignorant to think are as diverse as night and day. These people must be trained to make peaceful settlements among themselves instead of their old method of going to war. Up till now the only way differences in opinions between countries were settled was by all-out war. This motto of “Prosperity by Blood” must be forced out of their minds. They must be taught to appreciate a democratic government and practice it. This is certainly again no easy matter. Take China, for instance. There is a population of millions with no more understanding of citizenship and conception of voting than a flea. Out of this array of failings of foreign countries is an equally important need for improvement. This is the unbelievable decline in their religious beliefs. This undertaking is probably a little out of the politician’s line; therefore, it must be the task of our respective churches and their missionaries. It is impossible to try to talk of fellowship and faith in humanity to a tribe of unfortunate, backward people who put their trust in no man and believe in no God. You can plainly see the reason for this decline if you consider the existence of these people in their centuries of turmoil and war. When a person in his lifetime has known nothing but war, lost his family, has no knowledge of his ancestors except that they were killed in some insignificant battle many years before, he loses his trust and his faith in a God. I have tried to summarize the important facts to show the great need for leader¬ ship in our neighboring lands. America is the country best suited to constitute this leadership, providing she can first solve her own difficulties and achieve internal harmony within herself. Without a doubt, it will be many years before the whole world will be under one government, but attempts will be made until the goal is achieved of teaching people the right way to run their country. I think that the potentiality of a country’s power and welfare is determined by its choice of leadership. Right now the war-torn countries of Europe are as the drowning man grabbing at the proverbial “straw.” Should we let them struggle for escape into uncertainty, or help them reach the shore of freedom? Nineteen Fifty-one Page Forty-seven Glass History T HE History of the Class of 1951 is so dramatic and colorful it resembles a play, one of those modern plays that so skillfully disregard all the rules of drama. With your kind permission, I, as dramatic critic of the Blue and White, will review the play called “The Class of 1951” in an absolutely unbiased manner. This is a play in four acts, with three all too brief intermissions. The play was written by the actors as they played their parts, under the direction of Miss DiAntonio, the principal, and a band of capable assistants, the faculty, produced by the school committee with the financial and moral backing of the taxpayers of Franklin. The scenes all take place in the high school building, in corridors, classrooms, auditorium, gymnasium, and assembly hall. The settings are plain, showing signs of much use. In Act I we are shown as timid and curious Freshmen. As Scene I opens, many are seen at our Annual Fresh¬ man Acquaintance Party. Quite a number of the school members attended. There was an amusing hour or so of entertainment followed by dancing and refreshments. Scene II shows us gathering in the study hall to elect our class officers: President.Anthony Bissanti Vice-President. Peter Lawton Secretary . Jeanne Revell Treasurer . Dorothy Cataldo We feel certain from the election of these officers that we are to have a very suc¬ cessful play. From that time on everything went smoothly and our Freshman year came to a close. After an intermission of eight weeks during which the actors go away on vacation or stay home and help with work, the play is resumed. Act II finds us as full-fledged actors, or Sophomores, as we are more commonly known, having achieved a feeling of responsibility in our role. Scene I sees us again electing officers with no changes except for a secretary as Joan Wyllie has taken over for Jeanne Revell. As we worked up in our social standings, Scene II sees us putting on a Rally Dance to beat North. The program started with a half hour of dancing accompanied by the music of the “Starlighters.” Coach Pisini gave a pep talk urging the students to attend the game and expressed his confidence in the team. After the enthusing pep talk the team went out to win the game by a score of 12-6. Some of our boys, al¬ though only Sophomores, helped out a great deal. They were Eddie Picard, Bob Buf- fone, Bob Bourett, Carlton Van Keuren, A1 D’Amelio, and Butch Masi. Although we did our best, we were very inactive socially in Act I and Act II. Another eight weeks’ intermission, and we stagger in for Act III. The actors are so changed that each act seems like an entirely new play. They are now called Juniors. The director allows the actors much more freedom than they have previously enjoyed. As usual, Scene I find us once more in the study hall electing our class officers. (The same). Scene II sees many delightful interludes to make this a cheerful act. The most important sees us taking over the reins of the Blue and White. And to raise a little Page Forty-eight Nineteen Fifty-one CLASS HISTORY (Continued) money for our Prom which comes in Scene IV, we held a very successful food sale. Early in Scene III we held a Fashion Show which also helped to raise some more money. As it was so successful, we had an offer to go to a neighboring town, but due to the circumstances, we were not able to go. In Scene IV, we appear marching at our Annual Junior Prom, given in honor of the Seniors. The Juniors introduce to the Seniors the parents and friends who are on hand for this outstanding occasion. Under a ceiling of multi-colored balloons we danced to the music of Johnny Lynch and his orchestra. On stage for the final scene of Act III, an athletic extravaganza are the following for football—Bob Bourett, Eddie Picard, Butch Masi, Bob Buffone, Ouchie D’Amelio, Charlie Crevo, Junior Martello, Carlton Van Keuren, Norbert Chenard, Warren Locklin and your historian; for basketball, Junior Martello, Bucky Spurr, Bob Buf¬ fone, Charlie Crevo; for baseball, Warren Locklin, Charlie Crevo, Junior Martello, Butch Masi, Bob Buffone, and yours truly. Again an intermission of eight weeks which both audience and actors greatly enjoy, perhaps because they realize there is but one more act to follow. Act IV arrives and is warmly received. By this time, the actors are so matured, so at ease, so changed for the better, that they are difficult to recognize. We have grown honestly fond of all the cast, some of whom we regarded with anything but favor as the curtain rose on the first act of this queer play. Scene I opens with a meeting of this class to elect officers. They are as follows: President. Anthony Bissanti Vice President. Peter Lawton Secretary . Joan Wyllie Treasurer. Dorothy Cataldo On the same day a social committee is chosen. This committee includes: Lawrence Spurr—Chairman, Nancy Wood, Helen Varjian, Jeanne Revell, Beverly Mather, Mary Turco, June Sederman, Mary Padula, Robert Buffone, and Robert Simmler. In Scene II Mr. McNamara, representing the Purdy Studios, comes to discuss our class pictures. On October 2, 3, and 4, Mr. McNamara and his associates arrived to take the class pictures. Later on in this scene a big project is the electing of the Yearbook Staff which is composed of the following: Editor-in-Chief—Peter Lawton. Associate Editor—Joan Wyllie Business Manager—Anthony Bissanti. Advertising Committee—Robert Buffone, Lawrence Spurr, Louise Giancola, Nancy Wood and Donald DiMarzi. Girls’ Sports—Barbara Accorsi. Literary Editor—Frances Heaphy. Editorial Committee—Barbara Marena, Charles Crevo, Mary MacDonald, Robei ' t Gilbert and Adeline Mucciarone. Boys’ Sports—Robert Buffone and Lawrence Spurr. Art Chairman—June Sederman. Nineteen Fifty-one Page Forty-nine CLASS HISTORY (Concluded) Clerical Staff—Helen Varjian, Marjorie Bucchanio, Carol Ekstrom, Betty Blanchard and Betty Ferioli. The class assembles for Scene III—This time to elect a Cap and Gown Committee, composed of Josephine Yoder, Meredyth Thompson, Nancy Wood, June Sederman, an d Bob Buffone. At the same meeting we elected a Play Committee. Dorothy Cataldo, Helen Varjian, Bucky Spurr, Adeline Mucciarone, Bob Simmler make up this com¬ mittee. In Scene IV, another meeting is being held. Time has come for the Class Play which this year is “You Can’t Take it With You.” After a few tryouts, the cast is selected by Mr. Beane. Bucky Spurr and Joan Wvllie are chosen to fulfill the leading roles. In Scenes V and VI two important events are taking place—the first one, the Oskey, an annual show sponsored by the Seniors to defray the cost of the yearbooks. It is decided that the Social Committee will also serve as the Oskey Committee. The Oskey “Roaring Twenties” is presented on April 26 and 27 and is warmly received by the public. The main event of this scene and most important is the announcing of the honor students and the election of the class day speakers. These include: Peter Lawton.Valedictorian Frances Heaphy ...

The entire production attains a smoothness and a finish that are very pleasing. Despite all gaiety, grim preparations are going on, to the end that those who are now stars may remain so, and that others may continue in the cast. As the act nears its close, white faces drawn with worry are noticed. For this is the final struggle. The result of concentration is apparent—the strenuous preparation for a performance on the stage of life which will make our cast more and more familiar with the American way of life. To Mr. Doherty, our principal, and Miss DiAntonio, our class adviser, we are deeply indebted for their wise and friendly guidance. The play ends in a burst of glory, with flowers, music and congratulations—in short, graduation exercises; and we hope we shall have the well-known and ever popular, happy ending! Your Historian George Ryan Page Fifty Nineteen Fifty-one Glass Sifts J OHN D. ROCKEFELLER was my second cousin. You must have all heard of him When he died he left me four million dollars. Now you know what kind of income tax I’m going to have on that, don’t you? That’s why I decided to spend a couple of thousand dollars before income tax time comes around again. So I went out and bought some gifts for the members of my graduating class. Would you like to see what I got them? SAM ALASHAIAN—A muffler—Maybe this will quiet him. BARBARA ACCORSI—A life’s subscription of “Homemaking” magazine. MARJORIE BUCCHANIO—A contract—to do business with the McDermott Co. LARRY JOHNSON, JACKIE GREGOIRE, and PAULINE MORSE—A stepladder.

Helen Varjian Nineteen Fifty-one Page Fifty-three Glass Prophecy O NE summer morning as I was driving my 1931 Ford along Fifth Avenue, I saw a large truck heading directly toward me. The next thing I knew I was in a large office on top of the Empire State Building over-looking Times Square in New York and whom was I talking with but our Class of ’51 secretary, JOAN WYLLIE. On the desk before me was a huge bundle containing clippings, notes, advertise¬ ments, and all sorts of articles. JOAN was telling me that someone had sent these all to her. And the funny part of it was that they all had some connection with the Class of ’51. I brought most of them with me tonight, thinking that you’d like to hear a few of them. I felt maybe you could help me find the person who sent them. The first one that caught my eye was an ad for the Music Box. It reads “Held over for 5th week—JOE WAMBOLT and his World Famous Orchestra—Starring singers OUCHIE D’AMELIO and BARBARA ACCORS1 and featuring those comical gentle¬ men of song, TEX, BIZZ, and CHUPPS.” The following is a clipping from the Better Homes and Gardens showing a beautiful home offered for sale by multi-millionaire JOHN MARTELLO; incidentally the highest bidder is said to be MARCIA CARUOLO. From the sports section come two articles, one telling how CHARLIE MASON and KEN VOZZELLA finished in a dead heat at this year’s Indianapolis 500. At the top of the same page a headline tells that the Red Sox have finally beaten the Yankees after ten years. BOB BUFFONE slammed a two-run homer into the nets. BUTCH MASI and GEORGIE RYAN, also playing for the Sox, collected 3 hits apiece. The story is written by that world-known sportscaster, BOB GILBERT. A column from Sport Magazine says LARRY JOHNSON has just invented a pool table with adjust¬ able legs for short people. A piece from the court agenda mentions that noted phil¬ anthropists WILLIAM LYNCH and BOB BRUNELLI were sometime ago suing each other for the sole ownership of Main Street from Clark Square down. The judge handling the case was BOB SIMMLER, assisted by his able secretary, JOAN POWERS. When the decision was given both principals became so flustered that they had to be restrained by two hefty officers, who turned out to be ED PICARD and BOB BOUR- ETT. The result was that Main Street is to be divided between the two. Also in court was MEDRIC PLEAU accused of trying to burn down the high school. He was aquitted, however. A clipping from Radio Magazine mentions that the noted actress, JEAN CAMERON, is retiring in favor of radio and the “Mike.” She is expected to receive much competition from “The Voice” who is MARIE D’ANIELLO. Also from a Radio and Movie Magazine is our large ad telling how the A B C of Chesterfield has fired Perry Como and has signed three comedians, SAM ALASHIAN, CHARLES BERTONE, and NORBERT CHENARD. Tucked away among the clippings are two feature stories from Esquire, one telling how proud Harry Conover is of his three new models, JUNE SEDERMAN, JEANNE REVELL and BEV MATHER, while the other tells of the splendid singer at Ciro’s, none other than NATALIE SHORES Page Fifty-four Nineteen Fifty-one CLASS PROPHECY (Continued) It was getting past lunch time and I was hungry, so I locked up the office and walked across the street to Howard Johnson’s. There I was confronted by a former classmate, ELSIE HANSCOM, who told me that MARLENE JONES and PAULINE MORSE were both doing fine as waitresses. I no sooner got seated and who should come over and sit down but CHARLIE CREVO; he said he was publicity man for and part owner of ROBERT MEYER’S huge garage in Philadelphia. He mentioned that he took a trip overseas last year and met ROSE ROBINSON and JOAN TALMAN who were going to Ireland. “All three of us,” he said “rode on one of the ships named after the 36th President of the U. S.” who, of course you know, is PETER LAWTON. After a very enjoyable talk and lunch with CHARLIE I told him I’d see him later and said goodbye. I wanted to hurry back to the office and tune in on my favorite soap opera featuring BOBBY YADISERNIA as Luigi Pasquelli and LOUISE GIANCOLA as his daughter Rosa. Then I listened to the funniest program on the air; it is known as the “Silent Hour” where no one speaks for 60 minutes. It is famous for unheard commercials. It co-stars MEREDYTH THOMPSON and CARLTON VAN KEUREN and is ably directed by DAVID HOLBROOK. That got boring so I turned on tele¬ vision and who do you suppose was on but MARY TURCO and PAT KELLY in a girls’ foul shooting contest direct from Madison Square Garden. It was to be followed by a Homemakers’ course conducted by two of my classmates, CAROL EKSTROM and BETTY FERIOLI. Although I knew that would be interesting, I felt since I was an F. B. I. agent I’d better get back to Miss Wyllie’s case. Another clipping catches my eye; it is an editorial on “Women Garage Owners” discussing the case of MARGARET BEAUREGARD. Following this, I read here about BETTY BLANCHARD who was mentioned in “Ripley’s Believe it or Not” it seems she has had her arm broken 12 times in one year, each time from running into DORRS. As Jerry Lester would say, “George!” An article from Vogue tells us that MARJORIE BUCCHANIO and JOAN BUCHANIO have revolutionized the world of styles with some startling designs. They have had these fashions modeled at a recent exposition by three gorgeous girls, JOAN DILEGGE, MARJORIE D’ANGELO and GRACE VOZZELLA. My interest is aroused by a story on DOT CATALDO which says she has all she can do to keep track of the ever increasing “Cataldo Family” which now controls three entire states. An ad for a new cosmetics store catches my eye. It is situated next to R. H. White’s in Boston and the proprietors are FRANCES HEAPHY and MARY MACDONALD. Next to that is the Toni home permanent ad¬ vertisement. MARY PADULA is the twin on the right while the twin with the Toni on the left is LOIS PALERMO. The text of the French premier’s historic speech is the next clipping. It was written and translated by JACQUELINE GREGOIRE. Re¬ cently the prize for the discovery of 1961 was awarded to HELEN VARJIAN for her new beverage x-x—0 which translated means “zip.” A clipping from the Franklin Sentinel told of BARBARA MARENA’S appointment to the presidency of hundreds of Stop Shop stores over the U. S. Nineteen Fifty-one Page Fifty-five CLASS PROPHECY (Concluded) My head started to feel sort of woozy all of a sudden but there were only two more clippings so I thought I’d hurry through them before I took a rest. It seems FRANK LOCKE, WARREN LOCKLIN, and PHILIP LAWTON have won a contest since their last names begin with “L.” Each has been awarded $10,000 apiece. Each of them, however, ended up with carfare home. Government taxes you know. As I am planning to see a ball game this year, I am interested in the next clipping. It told of the promotion of JERRY LEARY and JOSEPHINE YODER to secretarial positions at Fenway Park. They were needed to help bill huge world series orders. Just as I finished the last line a terrific pain shot through my head. I felt as if I had been struck by a bolt of lightning. Then I was relaxed and opened my eyes. I was lying on a bed in a neat hospital room. A nurse was bending over me and taking my temperature. She said I was just shaken up and would be okay in a few days. But on the other hand my car has made the journey. Then I started to think; had I dreamt this or was it a reality? Let’s wait until 1962 and we’ll find out together. Page Fifty-six Nineteen Fifty-one Glass c Will r " EAR FRIENDS, I have called you here so that you may hear the heirs of my respected client, the Class of 1951. This will was drawn up as directed by her shortly before she passed away. She hopes you will enjoy the tokens and gifts which are rendered to you. I shall appreciate your courteous attention while I read this duly attested will. We, the Class of 1951, in the Town of Franklin and the state of Massachu¬ setts, being in good mental condition, as usual, and in much better temper than usual, do hereby make this our last will and testament. To our dear old school building we leave the peaceful quiet caused by our absence, and any apple cores, wads of gum, or crumpled notes we may have left about. To Mr. Stevens we leave Fred Lindsey to take Anthony Bissanti ' s place in answering those hard problems. We leave Clark Kippenberger to Mr. Beane to take the place of Billy Lynch in annoying him. We leave all our most important and valuable properties, our self-satisfac¬ tion, our importance, and our wisdom to the Junior Class which will fill our shoes next year. To the quietest girl of the Junior Class we leave Adeline Mucciarone ' s gift of gab. We leave Charlie Mason ' s ability of getting put out of lunch line to Harvey Prince. We leave Mary Turco ' s good nature to Theresa Bartelloni. Joan Wyllie ' s and Buck Spurr ' s acting ability we leave to Jane McGuire and Joe McWilliams. We leave Bob Simmler ' s corny jokes to Billy Elf. We leave June Sederman ' s dancing ability to Linda Aimone. To our good friends, the Sophomore Class, we leave our patience. It will be found useful as the only means by which they can endure the Juniors. To the sophomore boy who needs it most we leave Peter Lawton ' s brain. To Rosie DeBaggis we leave Charlie Crevo ' s car so she won ' t have to walk to school. We leave Helen Varjian ' s singing ability to Shirley Mailloux. To the Freshmen we leave a map of the building to keep them from think¬ ing 109 is 214. We bequeath Junior Martello ' s height to Don Ludbury so he will have more of a chance in basketball. To Rudy Patete we leave Bobby Buffone ' s ability to play baseball so he will make the first team. Nineteen Fifty-one Page Fifty-seven CLASS WILL (Concluded) We leave Eddie Picard ' s build to Robert Ristaino. We leave Sully Muccillo ' s loud voice to Art Martin. We leave Sonny Palumbo ' s riding ability to Norman Ober. Finally, we do hereby name and appoint as the sole executor of this our last will and testament, our Class adviser, Miss DiAntonio. In witness whereof we, the Class of 1951, the testator, have set our hands and seal on this sixth day of June in the year of our Lord, 1951. Written by Robert Brunelli Anthony Bissanti (President) Peter Lawton (Vice-President) Page Fifty-eight Nineteen Fifty-one Glass Song Music written by Joseph Wambolt Lyrics written by June Sederman Verse: Here on the threshold of life we stand, A future bright and clear in view, But though our high school days are through We shall forever be loyal and true. The years that we spent in these hallowed halls Will be cherished memories. Time can never change nor the years estrange The golden days we have spent in Franklin High. Chorus: Dear Franklin High, we must leave you now, Leave the teachers and classmates true. We ' ll not forget what you gave to us Of your time and your loyalty too. The days we have spent to achieve our goal Terminate for us on graduation night, But in our future years, through the laughter and the tears We ' ll retain sweet memories of Franklin High.

The spirit of the players made if a team which anyone would have been proud to coach. " The team had a comparatively good season, better than their 3 wins, 5 losses, and 1 tie indicate. The kicking department was ably handled by Bob Bourett, while the passing of Co-Capf. Eddie Picard, along with the running of Bob Buffone and George Ryan, made it a well-rounded backfield. The unsung heroes in the line who were opening holes and making tackles were Co-Capt. Butch Masi, Charlie Crevo, Warren Locklin, " Ouch " D ' Amelio, Norbert Chenard, Ray Wrenne and Carl Van Keuren.

The Camera Club, with Mr. Stevens as its adviser, is of great interest to its members. The object of the club is to teach the members fundamentals of photography. One of the oldest clubs at our high school, The Commercial Club, continues to benefit business students. Advisers are Miss Dwinell and Mrs. Roberts. Mrs. Riley has been doing her usual good work for this year ' s Glee Club. Under her leadership, the twenty members have been learning pieces to sing at Graduation Exercises. The Radio Club, under the guidance of Mr. Masi, draws many boys to its membership each school year. Mr. Masi hopes to get the members ready to receive their amateur radio operators ' licenses. The Service Club—the name of this club explains itself very aptly—gives service to any group or organization that needs it. This club meets under the direction of Mr. Fitzpatrick. Mr. Colbert has established the Boys ' Sports Club, which is available to all boys interested in athletics. Girls ' Sports Club is strictly an athletic club which is reserved for upper¬ classmen.
