Page Tit ' enty-nine MARVIN RICHARDSON " Men of few words arc the best men.

Marvin ' s quiet personality has made him a welcome part of the class as well as a great favorite of his teachers and close friends. EDWARD SANCOMB " Eddu.” " A man he seems of cheerful yesterdays and confident tomorrows " Eddie is one of the most popular boys in the senior class.

Who are the present ones? ’ What do they stand for? In whose mind are they great? What are they doing to make them outstanding? These are just a few of the hundreds of questions that could be asked concerning great American women. Let me describe some of these women and see if they stand out in your opinion as much as they do in mine. Let us look at some of the fields in which women are renowned, such as the fields of athletics, education and literature, entertainment, and politics. First of all, let us take the field of athletics. There are many women that could be included in their field, but the sport of tennis and its participating women are very outstanding. Gladys Heldman has been chosen as Tennisdom’s Woman of the Year. She was recently awarded The Service Bowl, which is given “To the player who yearly makes the most notable contribution to the sportsmanship, fellowship and service of tennis.” Mrs. Heldman took up tennis only five years ago. Before that were 24 equally active years during which she left her New York home and crossed the continent to attend Stanford University. The day after her graduation, she married Julius Heldman. It wasn’t until several years later that Gladys decided to take up tennis. She took lessons and before long she won her first trophy in the women’s singles at Stockton. Since this time, Mrs. Heldman has devoted most of her time to tennis and free tennis instruction. Also, she has started a tennis library, teaches classes for Cub Scouts and Brownies, and started a point system for juniors. Truly, Gladys Heldman deserves the title of Woman of the Year. At the Service Bowl ceremonies at Chestnut Hill, Massachusetts, it was said of her, “There is an old Chinese proverb which, being translated, says, ‘There are five directions; North, South, East, West and the spot where you are standing, and the last is the most important, for it deter¬ mines where the others are from your point of view.’ Mrs. Heldman stands most of the time on some spot in Texas but she has spread her deeds and accomplishments North, South, East and West, and therefore has benefitted the entire country.” Now the fields of education and literature. These two fields are not usually con¬ nected for any reason, but in this case, they go together well. It is the case of Helen Keller. Among all the great educators and humanitarians whom the world has wit¬ nessed in the past two centuries, none has been greater than Helen Keller. Born a normal baby, Helen lost her sight and hearing through an attack of scarlet fever and before she was two years old. A few years later, her parents, hearing of the wonderful work that was being done at the Perkins Institute in Boston, sent there for a teacher. By the end of three years, when Helen was eleven years old, she could read in Braille, could write, and could understand conversation. Finally, through much effort and time, Helen was taught to speak. Not content with this, she went on to enter Radeliffe College and in four years completed the course with an ex¬ cellent record. Franklin, Mass. Page Thirty-seven CLASS ORATION (Continued) ★ ★ Since the time of her graduation, Helen Keller has occupied herself with work for the blind and the deaf by lecturing and writing. Several of her books have become well-known and show the wide range of her culture and knowledge. Also, they reveal a nature essentially happy and spirited. Announced last month, Helen Keller was awarded The Variety Club Interna¬ tional Humanitarian Award for 1951. Inscribed on the plaque is the following: “This award of 1951 presented to Helen Adams Keller, a patient, courageous soul, who, with sightless eyes, has given to the world a new vision and, with muted lips, has put a song of hope in the hearts of men. “Blessed are the pure in heart for they shall see God.” There are many women in the field of politics, but one whom I consider very outstanding is Anna Rosenberg. In many ways Anna Rosenberg’s job is one of the most surprising ever held by a woman in any major nation. As assistant secretary of defense, she is confronted with a large number of problems. But with her great leadership and knowledge, she has the ability to overcome these problems. Mrs. Rosenberg came to this country with her family from Hungary when she was eleven years old. She began to show her talent for leadership in high school where she led a committee with a plan to relieve congested school rooms. Since this time, she has been a born leader. During World War I, she worked in hospitals and for bond drives, and her first federal appointment was in 1934 when she became assistant regional director for the NRA in the New York area. A year later she became director. She was regional director for the Social Security program for seven years, and regional director of the War Manpower Commission for three years. She has been the only woman to hold such a job. She directed the movement of twenty thousand workers from the East coast to the West coast. Through 1942-1945, she saw that labor representatives visited battle zones to help them understand military problems. In 1944-1947, she served on advisory board for the Office of War Mobilization and Reconversion. She was also on the President’s Advisory Board on Universal Military Training and worked on the Mobilization Advisory Commission set up after the start of the Korean War. Appointed November 11, 1950 to the Department of Defense, she is co-author of the present draft law and carried the load in presenting it to Congress. Anna Rosenberg has served on numerous other commissions—mostly to do with manpower and morale. She was the first woman to be decorated with the United States Medal for Merit. Truly a great tribute must be paid to Anna Rosenberg. In the entertainment field there are many great women. It is difficult to chose an outstanding one, but let us take Marian Anderson. Marian was born in the Negro section of the city of Pennsylvania, and even at a small tender age, her family and friends realized she possessed a contralto of magnificent quality. Rhythm came to Marian easily and soon she learned to memorize and carry a tune. Page Thirty-eight Franklin, Ma ' . CLASS ORATION (Continued) ★ Since she came from a poor family, Marian had to work by scrubbing white marble doorsteps of the houses of Pennsylvania, and by doing this, she once earned enough money to buy a violin. Because her family could not afford to give her lessons, Marian taught herself how to play this instrument and also a piano which her father bought. When her father died, it was necessary for her to help her mother earn a living, and so as often as she could Marian appeared as an assisting artist to other perform¬ ers, and soon the people became more interested in her than in the other musicians. After her appearance with Roland Hayes, the public became deeply engrossed. Marian was offered many opportunities and much assistance, and Marian Anderson had started her career. But because she had no financial backing and because of her racial background, the United States did not accept her very readily and willingly; therefore she went to Europe. There she was recognized as a great singer and after four years she returned to the United States for an appearance in New York where she was considered a success. Since then, Marian has been at the top and even had the honor of appearing before the President and the King and Queen of England. Marian Anderson has shown the world that it does not matter what race, color, or creed one may be or have to achieve success. At the close of her acceptance speech of the Bok Award, she quoted, “I have opened my mouth to the Lord and I won’t turn back. I will go, I shall go, to see what the end will be.” Now that you have seen an example of outstanding women in a few of the many different fields, what is your feeling toward them? Do you feel and think that these are the greatest American women? Even if not, you and I must give them recognition for what they have done, for they are a symbol of America, t he greatest country of all. Frankhn, Mass. Page Thirty-nine Glass History iy By Eleanor Principessa T HE high school career of the class of ’52 began in September of 1948, as the timid but determined students of our class entered the sacred portals of Franklin High School. Showing due respect for the upper-classmen, we passed the probation period quite successfully. With a feeling of relief, mixed with pride, the freshman class was accepted as a potential history-maker of our beloved school. The initiation terminated with the Freshman Acquaintance Party in which a num¬ ber of our Jalented classmates took part. Then came the election of our first set of class officers. Those who were chosen and very ably set our class on its feet were. President . Joe McWilliams Vice President . Joe Borruso Treasurer .. Jane Bardol Secretary . Pauline Howard The next fall proved to be the beginning of a very lucky year for this class, for it marked the arrival of yours truly to Franklin High. It also proved to be a red letter day for your historian—after all, it isn’t everywhere that you meet such a great crowd of classmates. Upon my arrival I found that the officers who were to lead us through this year were: President . Joe Borruso Vice President . Joe McWilliams Secretary . Beverly Yankee Treasurer . Jane Bardol Of course, we didn’t need much guidance (so we thought). After all didn’t we have a whole year’s experience behind us? We were sorry to hear though, that our advisor, Miss Aperson, had left us. The disappointment was somewhat lessened, how¬ ever, with the arrival of Miss Shaughnessy, who has been so helpful to us all through the yea rs. And so we set to work. Our first social function was a Rally Dance against North Attleboro—a booming success. Returning to Franklin High as upper-classmen in the fall of 1950, we were ready to take an active part in all of the school’s activities. After the election of our officers which turned out— President . Joe Borruso Vice President . Ronnie Yankee Secretary . Beverly Yankee Treasurer . Jane Bardol all of our attention was focused on our class rings. Boy—were we proud the day we went around flaunting our rings—and well as could be, too. Page Forty Franklin, Mass. CLASS HISTORY (Continued) ★ Our really big social event of the year was the Junior Prom. What a reception! The gym was gloriously decorated, based on the theme of “Oriental Gardens.’’ The atmosphere of the picturesque orient captivated all as they glided gaily over the floor. This same Junior Class, being conscientious and responsible as it was, also took upon themselves to take a poll of popular music in the school and to present the results on a leading radio network. Then finally came the year we were all anxiously awaiting—our one tremendous year as we honorably achieved the title “The Senior Class.” The first thing we did upon returning to Franklin High for the last time was to elect our officers. Being serious-minded seniors at this point, and realizing the importance of our choice, we very wisely elected— Ronnie Yankee Joseph Borruso Beverly Yankee President Vice President Secretary Treasurer Jane Bardol Having chosen the greatest leaders, we proceeded to make history in this institution. Our first project was electing the yearbook staff. Editor-in-Chief Ronnie Yankee and Associate Editor Pauline Howard certainly proved to be worthy choices. The Oskey that we sponsored was one of the best that has been presented in a long time—in fact, a repeat performance was very successfully held. Then as the Juniors took the spotlight, we were highly honored on that night of nights—the Junior Prom. Ah, yes—quite a night! But soon the seniors were back in action again. The class play, “Our Miss Brooks,” proved to be another achievement chalked up to the seniors as a great success. Finally we come to the goal that we have worked for four years—Graduation. And, of course, the Senior Hop shall be a very proper and fitting ending to that phase of life whose memories we’ll cherish always. franklin, Mass.

CHARLES VARJIAN Page Forty-four Franklin, Mass. Class Prophecy “T7 ' IVE more minutes,” said the voice that comes over the loud speaker. A Five more minutes, and I would be back in my old home town. After ten years away from Franklin it would seem wonderful to see my old classmates and friends again. I fastened my safety belt, and got ready for the landing. After getting off the plane, I began to walk towards the waiting room; here I saw Dom Gianetti all decked out in a pilot’s uniform preparing to take off. I hurried over to talk to Dom; he told me that this new modern airport was built and owned by Richard Cook and Chester Cantrill. Dom, of course, was one of the pilots here. I was quite surprised when he told me that Gail Landry, Marian Post and Pauline Morse were three of the airline hostesses at the airport. After saying goodbye to Dom, I decided that I would take a taxi to see how Franklin looked after ten years. To my astonishment, there written on a taxi cab was, “Thomas O’Connell’s New Town Taxi,” and sitting in the taxi cab I spied Marvin Richardson. Marvin enthusiastically consented to drive me around to see the sights. We went first by Varjian’s Garage which looked as attractive as ever, but instead of the familiar sign I read in bold red letters— “Charlie’s Garage.” As Marvin dropped me off in the center of town, I decided to walk along the Main Street and view the different changes here. I walked down to the Morse Theater; it looked so different I hardly recognized it. I glanced up at the marquee which read Crawford’s State Theater. As I entered the office, I saw Allen Crawford sitting at the desk smoking a Muriel Cigar. He was very much surprised to see me. Allen told me that he had saved so much money when he was working at the theater as an usher that he was able to purchase the business and finally had become a very rich man. After talking to Allen awhile I decided that I must leave, but not before I had noticed his attractive secretary— Miss Theresa Yoder. At this time I decided to take a walk to the high school. Sure enough Franklin High School was still located on West Central Street. It looked the same except for a few improvements. I went into the office and found Nick Giardino sitting at Mr. Doherty’s old desk; sitting beside him was Claire Yankee taking dictation. Nick greet¬ ed me cordially and informed me that the new superintendent, who was attending a convention in New York, was none other than Peter Burke. Claire escorted me to the rooms and pointed out the changes that had been made since 1952. As I went into the first classroom, I spied Miss Theresa Bartelloni giving one of her difficult students a lecture on behavior. As Claire and I were browsing around, I happened to look out the window and saw Joe McWilliams and Alex Manocchio coaching the most outstanding football team of 1962. Just then the lunch bell rang. I was nearly knocked down by the terrific stampede of the hungry mob. Claire invited me to stay for lunch. I was told that the delicious meal was prepared by Helen Pickering and Ruth Markarian, the head dietitians in the high school. franklin, Mass. Page Forty-five CLASS PROPHECY (Continued) ★ ★ Before leaving the high school, I met my old classmate, Nancy Ficco. Nancy told me she had taken over Miss Beane’s position as Physical Instructor. I was really amazed to find that so many changes had taken place. I decided to visit next the newly-erected Franklin General Hospital. Entering the door of this magnificent structure, I was received by Sandra Gilbert, the nurse receptionist. Sandra told me that Audrey Leary and Barbara Brothers were serving as the head nurses. She also told me that Ron Yankee was here. Sandra informed me that Ron was considered one of the most skillful surgeons in the country. I decided then to explore the many new stores in Franklin. I found that Byron Cochrane was owner of the former Aubuchon Co. and Ralph Felch was his successful manager. I looked into an attractive Beauty Salon in which I saw Ruth Langston giving one of her customers a permanent. Our Franklin Library looked just about the same, with the exception of the librarian who was now Eleanor Principessa. Eleanor was trying to keep a group of high school students quiet. History repeats itself you see. After leaving the library, I walked downtown again; here I met the Chief of Police— Anthony Talamini. Anthony told me that he had just been talking to Bob Pisani, who was now one of Franklin’s selectmen. Tony also told me that Rocky Taddeo had been promoted to a sergeant on the force. Rocky had won considerable fame for finally capturing the head robber in the Brink’s case. The robber had attempted a holdup here in Franklin, but was cleverly foiled by Rocky. Our conver¬ sation was interrupted by the familiar clang of the fire alarm. The fire engines came dashing through town. It was then that Tony told me that George Sims was the out¬ standing fire chief in Franklin. Saying goodbye to Tony, I headed for Dottie’s Spa owned by Dorothea Darling. There I saw Alice Thibedeau, serving as one of her charming waitresses. I left Dottie’s, and decided that I would buy a paper. The headlines read, “James Palermo to be a candidate for senator of the United States Congress.” Reading further, I discovered that Norman Jacques was also aspiring to be elected one of the district representatives. To my surprise, there were pictures of Beverly Yankee, Pauline Guisti and Joanne Rappa modeling gorgeous gowns from Saks Fifth Avenue which was now owned by Nancy Jones. As I finished reading this startling news, whom should I bump into but— Jackie Bartolomei; Jackie told me that she had become part owner in Hathaway Bakeries, and that David Topham was one of her finest bakers. Leaving Jackie, I passed a billboard from which I read that Pauline Howard and Marie DeGrazio were still carrying on their terrific dance routine, which they had performed in the Oskey of “52,” on a stage in New York. I read that they would appear with Billy Elf who had taken over Milton Berle’s program on his television show. Page Forty-six Franklin, Mass. CLASS PROPHECY (Continued) ★ ★ The next surprise I experienced as I walked down the street, was that I en¬ countered Ethelyn Ellis and Dorothy Stewart dressed in Wave uniforms. They told me they had joined at the same time three years ago and were now enjoying a fur¬ lough. The girls told me that Gloria Gourd had also joined the Waves. After wishing them much good luck, I turned to leave and whom should I see but my old friend and classmate, Jane Bardol. Jane told me that she had modeled as a cover girl for Look Magazine. Jane had also returned to Franklin to enjoy a little relaxation in our Old Home Town. Jane had met Janet Faenza who had written a book and was on her way to becoming the most successful writer of our time. After this exciting day I felt I could stand a meal and some good entertainment. I went into a very attractive nightclub which was decorated with diamond horseshoes everywhere. The head waiter here was Benjamin Russo. Ben showed me to my table. While I was eating my delicious meal, the stage show came on, introducing the greatest band in the land led by John McGroary, and the two top singers of 1962, Cynthia Bourbeau and Joe Borruso. In this band were also Richard Austin —with his magic guitar and Fred Lindsey, the leading clarinet player. Suddenly I heard familiar voices calling. Shirley Mucciarone and Marilyn Di- Marzo were excitedly beckoning to me. They were there with their husbands, who had become prosperous cigar and cigarette manufacturers. Shirley and Mai invited me to join them at their table. They introduced me, of course, to their hus¬ bands and told me that this nightclub had been built a couple of years ago and was now owned by Edward Sancomb, the Billy Rose of “62.” They also said that two other classmates were dining here, Beverly Shriel and Jane Forgit. These girls had become successful business managers of exclusive dress shops. I was very pleased when Shirley informed me that Anne Remington and Jane McGuire were both popular instructors at Simmons College. I looked down at my watch and discovered that I had only ten minutes to catch my plane. I boarded the plane just in time. As my plane gradually gained altitude and the lights of my old home town of Franklin were fading from my view, I wondered, if this scene, which, of course, I had been dreaming, could possibly happen in “62.” PAULINE MARTELLO Franklin, Mass. Page Forty-seven Glass c Will ☆ ☆ X7E, the class of 1952, being of sound body and mind and feeling that we ’ have just about reached the end of our life in Franklin High School, do declare this to be our last will and testament: We, Marvin Richardson and David Topham, leave our ability of making noise without being heard to Paul Cataldo and Harvey Nasuti. We, the senior dancers, leave to the junior dancers the top spot in next year ' s Oskey. I, Dick Austin, leave my matador suit to " Windy " Winglass. I ' m sure you will throw the bull as well as I did. I, Cynthia Bourbeau, leave my voice and looks to the many girls who would give their ri ght arm for them. We, " Smoky " Sims and Tony Talamini, leave our book entitled " Stay out of the shadows and come into the light, " to Richard Cornetta and Everett Cataldo. I, " Jigger " Borruso, leave my car to the school to show what a little scotch tape can do. I, Pauline Guisti, leave my pep, vim, and vigor to Shirley Caruolo. I, Nick Giardino, leave my brain for all future physics students. They ' ll need it, too. I, Gail Landry, leave my artistic ability to Mary McWilliams (little plug for the family). I, Allen Crawford, leave my ability to skip class to Tony Lyon. I really don ' t think he needs any more help for he does all right for himself now. We, lane McGuire and Ann Remington, leave to Janet Gianetti and Ann Hutchinson, the glue that kept us stuck together through four years of high school. I, Peter Burke, leave my size 8 football helmet to loe Daddario and Fred Yadisernia. They ' ll both be able to use it at the same time. I, Bryon Cochrane, bequeath my height to Hagop " Inky " Eknaian. I, James Palermo, leave my smile to " Skull " Bartelloni who now carries his around in his pocket. To the remaining jovial juniors we leave our title of " Seniors " and our habits of doing all our homework, paying attention in class, never skipping school or coming late, staying home nights, and always keeping out of ses¬ sion. If they make use of these, they will be almost as good as the class of " 52. " Page Forty-eight Franklin, Mass. CLASS WILL (Continued) ★ To the remaining sophisticated sophomores we leave the headache of the Junior Prom. The remaining frantic Freshmen we leave a year closer to the day when they will become hard-working and dependable Seniors. We, the class of " 52,” leave the session hall a little furniture to lend it that homey atmosphere for some of the students who practically live there. To the Faculty I, Alex Manocchio, leave my golf clubs to Mr. Doherty so that he will get his score out of the 90 ' s and into the 70 ' s. We, the members of the baseball team, leave to Coach Pisini and next year ' s team at least one bat v ithout a hole in it. To Mr. Masi we leave an electric eye to catch all the students who skip into lunch line. To Mr. Fitzpatrick the Solid Geometry Class leaves a knife to cut the corn. To Mr. Beane the basketball members leave a hammer and some nails to keep the basket from moving every time we take a shot. To Mr. Cox we leave an alarm clock to get up those rainy mornings to blow the no-school whistle. To the remaining members of the Faculty—we just leave—for which we think they will be most grateful. In the presence of the following authorized and sound witnesses, we do declare this to be our last will and testament on this eleventh day of June in the year of our Lord, One Thousand Nine Hundred and Fifty-two. Class Officers of 1952: President, Ronald Yankee Vice President, Joe Borruso Secretary, Beverly Yankee Treasurer, Jane Bardol Witnesses: Mai Nutrition Joe Kerr James Town Frank Lin Joe McWilliam, Scribe Franklin, Mass. Page Forty nine CLASS SONG—1952 At last, the time has come to part, Our high school days are over; Fond mem ' ries fill our hearts. At last, we ' re leaving Franklin High, The times that we have shared here Are dear and will not die. The friends and pals that we have made here, The victories that we have won Are all a part of our gay past now-— A new life has begun. For we will hold our heads up high We ' ll make our lives successful For you, dear Franklin High. At last, we bid our fond farewells; Tho ' on thru life we wander Our love with Franklin dwells. Wherever fate may lead us Our loyalty is true. The times we worked so hard together, And then the times we spent at play—• They are the things we will remember When we are far away. And last, we ' d like somehow to try To thank both friends and teachers Of our dear Franklin High. By Eleanor Principessa Page Fifty Franklin, Mass. SENIOR CELEBRITIES BEST LOOKING . CUTEST .

FOOTBALL Plagued with injuries to many key players including two co-captains, Joe McWilliams and Joe Borruso, the Franklin High School football team was con¬ siderably handicapped throughout the football season. We owe much praise to our very able coach, Tony Pisini, for although the team finished the season with over half of its first eleven out of action, it compiled a record of three wins and four losses, which is okay in any man ' s book. Senior members of the team of ' 51, who were the mainstay of the squad in addition to the co-captains, were as follows: Alex Manocchio, and Tony Talamini, whose passing combination was a big factor in the Panthers ' vic¬ tories; George Sims and Bob Pisani, hard running backs; Pete Burke and Dom Gianetti, who opened many holes in the line for the backfield boys. The annual Gridiron Club Banquet was held at the end of the season where trophies were awarded to the outstanding lineman, Tony Talamini; run¬ ner-up, Jigger Borruso; and also to the outstanding back, Alex Manocchio; runner-up, Joe McWilliams. Franklin, Mass. Page Fifty-nine BASKETBALL This year ' s bas ketball team had a hot and cold season. Coach Beane was handicapped a little by the loss of three varsity players through gradua¬ tion, but he had very good material, a great deal better than the 11-12 record shows. The team was in the thick of the battle for the Midland League title up until the last week of play when it was eliminated by Hudson, the runner-up for the league crown. The Panthers ended the season in third place, entering in no other league competition. Thus for the fifth straight year, they have been unable to finish on top although coming very close each year. Ed Cataldo led the Panthers in scoring, while Bob Vipraio and Ronnie Yankee followed close behind. Seniors who played their last basketball game for Franklin are Co-captains Ronnie Yankee and John McGroary, Alex Manocchio, Dick Austin, and Rocky Taddeo. The schedule is as follows: SCHEDULE F. H.

JAYVEES BASKETBALL The Franklin High Jayvees ' basketball team fared the better in their pre¬ liminary tilts before the Varsity. Passing the ' 500 mark easily, the squad com¬ prised an enviable record, despite the loss of several key players to the Var¬ sity. And, for the first time in many years, the Freshmen were represented on the court. From the results of their games, many profitable prospects are in line for the future. Franklin, Mass. Page Sixty-one BASEBALL With a little luck the F. H. S. baseball team could have one of its better seasons this year. The team is composed of about 22 players with Captain Tony Talamini heading the list, followed by Alex Manocchio, Joe McWilliams, Dick Austin, Eddie Sancomb and Joe Borruso, all seniors. The team also has a group of promising underclassmen who will balance the remainder of the squad. Despite the graduation of four key players last year, Coach Pisini is expecting to field a strong team.

GOLF It appears that the F. H. S. golf team will have another good year. This is the third year that Franklin has participated in the Bay State League. The team has gathered much experience in its first two years of competition and has a good chance of taking the title. Veterans from last year, who are back again, are as follows: Alex Manoc- chio, Ronnie Yankee, Joe Borruso, Donald Palladeno, Everett Cataldo, Robert Nasuti, and Dick Austin.

" is the cry of these eight girls who have all the pep and vim that cheer our boys on to victory. Whenever we see eight girls in white sweaters, blue skirts, white sneakers and attractive white and blue socks, we know that they are the F. H. S. cheer¬ leaders. They took part in the Bay State Tournament and with the help and guid¬ ance of " Beanie, " they won fourth prize. We know that in years to come the cheerleaders will continue the tradition of cheering for " The Panthers, " win, lose, or draw. Page Sixty-four Franklin, Mass. GIRLS ' SPORTS Our final year cf sports turned out to be one of the most enjoyable years at Franklin High. With the helpful guidance of " Beanie " we began the year with hockey. Although we played only one game with the juniors which came out in a tie, we all had loads of fun. Next came volleyball with the girls from all classes participating in the intramural games. Then, the favorite sport of everyone, basketball—we played six outside games this year and although only two games were won by the seniors, we all enjoyed ourselves. The games were: F. H. S. Seniors 21 F. H. S. Alumni 43 Franklin 19 Hopedale 24 Franklin 16 Norwood 13 Franklin 21 Foxboro 27 Franklin 14 Hopedale 21 F. H. S. Seniors 21 F. H. S. Juniors 7 After the final basketball game badminton came next on our list. The matches were played after school, and many of the senior girls participated in this sport. All too soon, softball season came around, and the thought came to all of us that this was our last sport for our senior year. It has been wonderful having Miss Beane coach us during these past four years, and we shall always remember our good times. Franklin, Mass.

H. S. Breaking all records, a repeat performance was played five nights after the original show. The setting was a Dude Ranch with dayglowpaper trimmings on the cos¬ tumes which glowed in the rays of a blue light. This new idea also proved to be a big hit. Many students from all classes took part in this show and it is one which we shall always remember as a great success, thanks to the excellent super¬ vision and hard work of Mr. Beane. CLASS PLAY " Our Miss Brooks " was chosen as this year ' s class play. Quite a bit of hidden talent was brought out in this play which seemed to surprise everyone, and the play was a hit being enjoyed by a capacity audience. Our thanks and appreciation go to Mr. Beane under whose very able di¬ rection the play was made a success.
