Only a few morsels are left of the delicious food served at “The Appian Way”, the Italian Kitchen sponsored by the Latin Club (1). An eager participant of the festival (3) attempts to be king for a monent and Senorita Irvine (2) enjoys some Spanish food. (4) Nancy Guidrey and Roberta Heinzmann prepare Spanish rice. A group of Spanish peasants (5), prepare tortillas in their home. The popular French Cafe (6) displays a large variety of pastries and always attracts a crowd. People can also enjoy music along with their food (7) at the Cafe. Three members of the “Spanish Soccer Team” (8) demonstrate their exuberance after winning their match against France. A Spanish bandito (9) prepares to eat a foreign meal. D.E.C.A. One of the most important organizations in existence at Franklin High School is the Distributive Education Club of America. At the start of this school year, officers were elected and are pictured at D.E. banquet (4). They are: Kathy Campbell, president; Eric Bonney and Bob Priesing, vice presidents and store managers; Colleen Murphy and Mary Thibeault, treasurers; Maureen Ames, historian; Dave Prairie, parliamentar¬ ian. The D.E. store, which is one of the main functions of the D.E.C.A. program, is a busy place at Christmas time with its many merchandise arrivals (3). Each year D.E. travels to the Cape and enters Career Development Conferences. This year there were many trophy winners (2). The 6th Annual D.E. Banquet was held May 21st, at the Franklin Country Club. Enjoying the festive occasion are many Seniors involved in D.E. (5). But D.E. is all made possible through the efforts of the man behind the scenes, the one and only Mr. Gray (1). BASEBALL TEAM GOES 8-8 1 j 1 1 UikJi4, l (l)In addition to being an impressive outfielder, co-captain Scott Bartolomei also sees action behind the plate. (2) Joe Venturoso, who made many fine plays at second base and shortstop, anticipates the pitch. (3) Starting catcher Nick Carlucci is one of the Panther’s most powerful hitters. (4) Members of the 1977 baseball team include (FROM FRONT LEFT) Pete Padula, Mike Ostrander, Jim Dunn, Rick Gentili, Nick Carlucci, Gary Bolduc, Joe Carroll, Phil Joannides and (FROM BACK LEFT) David Boisture, manager John Carew, Joe Venturoso, Scott Bartolomei, Peter Giardino, Robert Williamson, Tim Charest, Rick Herrick and MISSING are Mike Spellman and Jack Daddario. (5) Second baseman Phil Joannides winds up for a powerful hit. (6) A very reliable centerfielder, with solid hitting and good speed, chosen as All-League in his junior year, is Gary Bolduc. (7) Infielder Jim Dunn’s ability to play ball was demonstrated most clearly in the Panther’s 5-1 victory over King Philip when he went 3 for 3 at bat, had 4 rbi’s and 1 run scored. (8) Coach Ron Bonollo, who’s spent many a spring with the Panther Nine, knows the game well. (9) Scott Bartolomei, Jack Daddario and Mike Ostrander call time out to analyze the situation. (10) Rightfielder Rick Gentili views the action while awaiting his turn at bat. (11) Joe Carroll prepares to slug the ball hard. (12) Co-Captains David Boistre LEFT, was named MVP on this year’s squad. 9 ■ r GIRLS SOFTBALL The coming of spring signaled the beginning of the Franklin High girls’ softball season. They completed the season with a 10-6 record and were again backed by the coaching of Cindy Richards (1). The 1977 season was filled with ups and downs for the girls but because the team was mainly comprised of underclassmen, Coach Richards felt that in coming years Franklin could be a top contender for the Hockomock League Title. Only three seniors returned to the spring line-up: Mary Thibeault (5), Jean Bassignani (2), and Laura Wicknick (4). Getting ready for behind the plate action is Bernie Corbett (6). Freshman Janet Vignone discusses the game strategy with Bernie Corbett. GOLF The Franklin High Golf team was once again coached this year by Harold Williams. The seniors on the team are (1): Paul Chastanet, Don Curley, Mike Lenzi, and Doug White. NOT PICTURED are Zeffro Gianetti and Steve Potter. Doug White (2) and Charles Degnim (4) demonstrate that golf is a game which requires deep concentration. With precise movements, Mike Lenzi (3) and Tom Loughlin (5), attempt to defeat their opponents. Other members of the F.H.S. golf team include John Proulx and Joe Borges. BOY’S TENNIS The boys tennis team this year was directed by a new coach (1) Don Cotter. Although the team’s season wasn’t as successful as they had anticipated, the experience that the underclassmen received will hopefully prove to be an advantage for future teams. The senior members of this years team included: Tony Ippoliti, Eric Frey, Bob Thorne, Kurt Swanbeck, Marc Elliot and Kirk Simon. GIRLS TENNIS The Girls Tennis team coached by Pat Ashwell, also had a disappointing year. The only senior on this years team was Margret Walters (3). Other members included: Karen Bent (1), Debbie Edelstein (2), Nancy Curren (4), and Donna Huie (5). Perhaps the experienced underclassmen will return next year to strive for a winning season. BOYS SPRING TRACK Girl’s and Boy’s Spring Track attract a large number of athletes who participate in various events. Steve “Cheezy” Adamson (1) was a senior star sprinter on the spring track team. Weightman Phil Cugno (2) prepares to hurl the discus, and senior Tom Corbett (3) shows the proper stance in throwing the javelin. Pole Vaulter Ross Davis (4) appears to be easily clearing the bar. Hurdler Brian Hitchcock (6) gains the lead on a close race with his opponent. The entire boys spring track team (5). GIRL’S SPRING TRACK The entire girls Spring Track team (1) is coached by Chris Berglund and Jim DiCecco. High jumper Tara Heinzman (2) ponders a method of approaching her obstacle. Concentration and stamina are necessary for being a long distance runner, as displayed by senior Beth Mooney (3) and junior Cindy Conagan (4). Two Franklin runners (5) strive to win for their team, and to make their own individual achievements. Senior Co-captain Debbie Dorr (6) in mid air as she makes her bid for the long jump. 15 Iff tlib day ib not a fulfilment of youl needb and my awe, tlen fet it fe f a ' ' (rnibe tilt dnotAm day. an’b needb clanye, tat not Aik lowe, nob Aik debite that tub lave bAould batibfy Aib needb. tffnow tAexefobe, that Aom tie gbeal t donee If bAall leAt tn.

IduAlit Lilian — Function This book serves as a reference for information concerning life in the period extending from September ”72” to June ”73”. Since life throughout the ages has been much the same in many respects, we must record our ideas, opinions, and actions in order to express how we differ from the generations before us. As the stage manager said in Thornton Wilder’s play, ”Our Town”, M ... marries N ... millions of them. The cottage, the go-cart, the Sunday afternoon drives in the Ford, the rheumatism, the grandchildren, the second rheumatism, the death bed, the reading of the will — once in a thousand times, it’s interesting.” Do our lives qualify as that ”one in a thousand”? Purpose We are formed and molded into unique human beings by many forces. Some of these forces are external social influences where others are intimate and personal experiences. This book will identify these forces which affect human life, thereby giving us a better understanding of oursel ves and those with whom we co-exist. THE PATRIOT, 1964, by Andrew Wyeth Yearbook Format Thank You Procedure v Linger At the edge of the sea, life came to the land and comes still; comes to the man who rests there unhur¬ ried, who pauses to learn what be¬ longs there, to enjoy it for what it is.

For now it is crowded and filled with worried and busy people who are constantly finding important things everyday and not Seniors — That’s us, kids! and as you leaf through the book you’ll notice se¬ nior pictures scattered here and there with no specific senior section to make you fall asleep. Only pretty faces smiling up at you as you enjoy reading our book. So enjoy! School iS ... Lite ierrn papers Format is really screwy. I mean, a yearbook is a yearbook, right? So, why try to mess them up with copy (stories, etc.) and creative photography, and people’s ideas? A yearbook is just a scrapbook of the I senior year, and nothing more. Well, people’s ideas and creative photography and copy all make a yearbook something more than " just a scrapbook.” A yearbook isn’t just " our senior key”, (Oskey). Our yearbook is a book encompassing 1972 and 1973 — the events and the people who affected our lives in this time span. We used a more casual format, breaking the book down into chapters which center around the various influences on our lives. Everything usually found in a yearbook is still here — the football, the cheerleaders, the seniors, but we added in the Olympics, the national elections, and any other special events which have affected us all. remembering about the matters which were once important. " I’d like to say I’m not leaving as a principal because of you. I think you’re a great bunch of people. I honestly am leaving because I can’t accept certain decisions that are made by my supervisors. I cannot accept the fact that education is not the top priority in our town.” Man has his standards by which to live. " I wanted to make Franklin what I always dreamed of; a friendly hap¬ py, efficient school. I have a very simple philosophy: It’s love and respect.” — But it’s not always possible and he finds himself subjected to pressures. " I’m a controversial person I hate to be in the public eye. I guess I’m tired of being a big deal. I just want to be Al.” P Mr. Businessman Advertising is an important way of making money to finance the yearbook. We didn’t ask for charity when we sold the ads, so why treat the businesses just as sponsors? We feel merchants who take an ad out should get the coverage for which they’re paying. When you see an ad next to your picture; be glad it’s there. It’s people like them who are keeping the price of the book down.

Political Influences " If you wish the sympathy of the broad masses, you must tell them the crudest and most stupid things.” (Adolf Hitler, Mein Kampf) Is this the way politicians appear to us? It’s frightening to think of people in a " civilized society” being influenced by their emotional responses in matters of government. One would think that modern man would react best to someone who stimulates his intellect; however, this is often not the case. Politics involves those institutions which govern us. Within these institutions, (the Senate, the House of Representatives, the Student Council) who make decisions which should reflect the feeling of the public. But aren’t we often swayed to our representatives’ way of thinking, with vague promises? No matter how many times we are disappointed, we seem to want to believe their empty words, as long as they sound good. We really cannot blame our leaders for this behavior — they tell us what we obviously want to hear. Everyone wants to be a winner, so a candidate for political office, whether he or she is the president of a Student Council or the president of a world power, strives to please the public. Hitler told the Germans that they were the greatest race on earth and must rule the world. Flattered by this view of themselves, the Germans supported him without giving much thought to the methods he used to achieve his goals. It didn’t matter how many Jews were killed in the concentration camps; the Germans were too excited about ruling the world to consider the morality of the methods used to achieve their ends. Although it may be hard to believe, there are some honest people in public office. It is up to the public to choose to vote; we should exercise that right with some intelligence, by being well-informed on the candidate’s issues. It is foolish to b e so willing to accept every statement made by public figures. We’ve been too gullible for too long. j I Judith Proulx Cheryl Gosselin National National Vote for President Percent = 62.0% 37.0% 25.0% Nixon (R) McGovern (D) Nixon margin 25,024,670 14,734,164 10,290,500 Vote in 1968 Nixon (R) Humphrey (D) Wallace (Al) Nixon margin 31,785,480 31,275,166 9,906,473 510,314 43.4% 42.7% 13.5% 0.7% Electoral Votes States for McGovern District of Columbia Massachusetts 14 States Undecided Alaska Arizona California Hawaii Idaho — 4 Michigan — 21 Minnesota — 10 — 40 School. 16 • • • lasing yourchafft notes Election ’72 Electoral Votes States for Nixon Alabama — 10 New Jersey — 17 Arkansas — 6 New Mexico — 4 Colorado — 6 New York — 43 Conn. — 8 N.

" The younger members, or the people who are on the council for the first time, sometimes won’t voice their opinions. I can understand people who, at first, might sit back a little. But now their confidence is improved and they express themselves. The interest is there and it comes out. I believe that just the fact that they’re there and have even tried shows that they care and are truly leaders.” (Peter Mc¬ Guire, Student Council President, 73). " I decided to run for Student Council in my junior year, the first year in our new high school. I was influenced by Mr. D’Aniello, not so much in words, as in thought. Mr. D’Aniello wanted a good school, a school to which students would en¬ joy going. I wanted to help him make his " team” which he so often spoke about. Unfortunately, there are a few who don’t, and probably never will work as a team, but the majority does. I only regret that we are too late to prove ourselves to our, or my inspiration, Mr. D’Aniello.” (Robyn Woodman, Student Council Vice- President, 73). These statements express what should be the feeling of the Student Council. But is it? • » ' 1 B ■ I I " ft l p . ! pin I i|s| 1 m iJP ■ i Mb ! fc I . Jmt 1 ' 1 L fe Politics become a social force long before a person reaches the age at which the law permits him to cast a ballot in national and local elections. Student Council is one of the first steps in the political scene. At present, our Student Council has only two functions. These are: Sch.oo( is. • • lemon drops " from the no r se 1. to act as a line of communication between the student body and the people in administrative postion. 2. to provide the students with a program of relevant activities, (such as dances, movies, etc.). If these functions were carried out, perhaps the majority of the students would be satisfied; but are two duties enough to form a power¬ ful and influential Student Council? Aren’t there other services the Council could provide to expand it’s horizons of involvement? Shouldn’t the Student Council have some voice in the decisions which affect the student and also, take a share of the responsibility in seeing that de¬ cisions are put into action? Many of this year’s council members seem to think so. " I ran for Stu¬ dent Council because I’m inter¬ ested in getting more power to the student. I believe they are more capable of handling their affairs than is the present School Committee.” (Charlie Gor¬ don, 73) ”1 don’t think that the Council is functioning to it’s fullest po¬ tential. I think a main func¬ tion of the Council should be to provide a bridge between students and faculty. Hope¬ fully, steps taken such as the student advisory board, will help provide this bridge.” (Bar¬ bara LeBlanc, ’73). Most of the council members are willing to do so, but need a push every now and then! " The whole idea is unity, for if the students came directly to us with their griev¬ ances, more could be done for ev¬ eryone.” (Joanne Lewis, Student Council secretary, ’74). Student and faculty alike agree that a communication problem ex¬ ists at F.H.S., one that could be remedied by an effective student council. The council could begin to solve the problem by opening lines of discussion between the student body, the administration, the school committee, the townspeople and other student councils in the area. The council has yet to find an effec¬ tive way of reaching the students and letting them know what’s going on, while on the other hand, the student body’s apathy does not give the council members much incen¬ tive. Don’t the students care to get involved with an organization that could be one of the governing forces of their lives in F.H.S.? Any student who is interested can attend a council meeting and voice his opinions and ideas, or if he is unable to attend a meeting, but wishes to have his views expressed, he can make use of the representatives his class has elected for this purpose. These rep¬ resentatives have a job to do: it’s up to the students to make them work! i School is. tf ' uC ' KiN ' ujrih trills William Galvin IV Student Council cont. As they appeared Sckooi. is... Yearbook meetings ' When students are asked if they know what’s happening within the council, the responses range from the negative to vague generalizations. ’’They are trying to improve things in the school.” " They are trying to improve the relationships between the students and the faculty,” or just, " No! They should publicize their actions.” Ideas for what the student coun¬ cil can and should do, include such things as: " They should try to get the kids more interested in the school, and they should try to bring the school, teachers, and students together for communication.” " I ran because I wanted to do something about the ideas and complaints the students were dis¬ cussing. I thought by becoming a member of the council, I might be able to possibly try and get some demands, or influence some of their ideas and bring out the complaints and if possible help have them solved.” (Mary Martin, ’74) Everyone is a prisoner of his own experiences. No one can eliminate prejudices — just recognize them. — Edward R. Murrow Class Officers Although such comments arise quite frequently, no one seems to know how these things could be accomplished. Despite it’s shortcomings, the student council is making progress. The minutes of the meetings are posted on the bulletin board, to in¬ form anyone who is interested as to what is going on. Movies are being shown at cheaper prices for the stu¬ dents benefit. The council now has the power to plan the schedule’s social calendar. They also read the morning announcements, and sometimes include a " joke of the day. " This idea seems to have fiz¬ zled out unfortunately, but at least it was given a try. Although the council has a long way to go, it is paving the way for important im¬ provements. Hopefully councils of the future will go on to bigger and better things. Political figures at F.H.S. expand beyond the realm of teachers, principals, superintendants, and School Committee members. Within the student body, there exists a very obscure group of student officials who are elected to be student leaders, by their peer groups. Public criticism has always been directed towards the wide-ranged political arena. The victorious candidate, whether he is involved in town, city, state or nation-wide elec¬ tion, is he whose public image has been successfully converted into personal and public popularity. Many students at F.H.S. have " gripes " about elections that are held within the school. They are usually carried out in a very casual manner. It is the general consensus of opinion of most of the students that they want to know who is running for what office and what their qualifications are before the morning of election. When presented with these gripes, the class officers of the four classes responded in a variety of ways. " I feel that the way the elections are being handled is a farce. Al l that the elections mean to most students is that it is a large popularity contest. The poor student who is running for office and who wants to do good, may not be elected with the elections this way. " Cristine DiLeonardo — Sophomore Class Treasurer. " I think that during the freshman year, the way the election is run should be changed. You should have to go in front of your class and tell them why you should be elect¬ ed.” Brett Simon — Freshman Class President. " Just having ballots is not sufficient since all the students are not famil¬ iar with the candidates, and most kids won’t cam¬ paign. Yet I don’t feel that speeches are a tre¬ mendous help either. Many times I’ve seen sincere people, with good ideas, speak before the student body and be out-voted by someone with a great figure, or someone who can make words sound nice. " Debi Violandi — Senior Class Secretary Most of our class votes for the name they have heard the most, rather than the per¬ son and his qualifications. " Donna Pi¬ card — Junior Class Vice President " The kids will vote for the person who they think could do the best job, based on their opinion of the person.” Dave LeBlanc — Sophomore Class President " The students can vote for whoever they want. Nobody is made to vote for any speical person.” Keith Perron — Senior Class Vice President " A lot of kids complain that it’s always a popularity con¬ test, and that it’s always one big clique No matter what happens, there’s always going to be a clique anyway. Kids say that it’s always the same kids that are running for this and that. This might be true, but only because none of the other kids run. " Sue Salvucci — Senior Class Treasurer " Kids take it seriously, and vote for the person they know will do the best job, because it is for their class, and I know they have pride in their class. " Tom Cargill — Senior Class President " Along with each office, certain duties are in¬ volved. It is assumed that the first and foremost duty of an officer is to be a class leader, and set good examples for classmates. But president, vice president, secretary, and treasurer are all officers who have specific manifest functions. As president of the freshman class, my most important job is to help the other students be informed on what’s going on. I also must help in all school projects and in student council. " Brett Simon — Freshman Class President " Really, there isn’t much for the officers to do. Mostly, we help raise money for the class by collecting dues, running the class dance, etc. This year we did a lot of work on class rings. " Dave LeBlanc — Sophomore Class President " The duties of the officers are to run things for the class, and to plan future activities.” Diane Simmons — Junior Class Secretary School, is. • . u; aitincj an hour ft Lunch Raye Lynn Mercer Carlo Lodi For each year in high school, there are certain activities which differenciate one class from another. It is the class officers who must organize and lead the students in the particular activities. " We will undertake a very important project this year. Our Junior Class Prom will be held in May, and if the class continues to cooperate as it is now, the Prom will be a great success. Our class may also try to put on several small pro¬ jects to raise money.” Donna Picard — Junior Class Vice President " This year, we will be putting some new ideas into effect. We want to do some things that have never been presented and we want to put them on without involving much money such ideas as a class picnic at a nearby park, or maybe even a semi-formal dance, right here in the high school.” Tom Cargill — Senior Class, President. " My class isn’t really doing any project.” George Streeter — Sophomore Class Vice President " The main project that our class will do this year is the Saint Valen¬ tine’s dance. The other will be the ordering of our class rings.” Christine Di- Leonardo — Sophomore Class Treasurer. " To keep track of the money in the class and help with ideas.’’ Debbie Velluti — Junior Class Treasurer " I don’t have any specific duties. I feel it is my duty to be a class leader, and represent the student body in the best way I can I try to make suggestions and solutions to problems and events that may come about. I will take any ideas and suggestions that are for the betterment of the class and discuss them with the other officers ” Keith Perron — Senior Class Vice President " The duties of the vice president include assisting the president at all meetings, assisting in making decisions and organizing class functions. Also, if for any reason the president is unable to perform his duties properly, the vice president would take over ” Donna Picard — Junior Class Vice President " I feel the most important duty I have this year is to help unite ALL the members of the class, and to make this year a fantastic year, so that all the work that has been put into the class can be enjoyed for a change.” Debi Violandi — Senior Class Secretary School ' S pecKin Ot the r nK booK " I try to say what the class as a whole would say. I represent our class at every student council meeting, and once in a w hile, I am called to a school committee meeting to give my views and to represent our class. I am in charge of events our class puts on, and I work quite a bit with our prin¬ cipal ” Tom Cargill — Senior Class President " There really aren’t very many duties in my office. I have to keep records of all the money that we have in our class ” Sue Salvucci — Senior Class Treasurer " This year, I would say the biggest duty is helping with the class rings.” George Stree¬ ter — Sophomore Class Vice Presi¬ dent Pamela Gibson Brenda Davey " Our class is more suited to the system of class government.” Brett Simon — Freshman Class President " The kids are for the most part, very helpful, and they are concerned on the economic and social parts of a class . . . ” Christine DiLeonardo — Sopho¬ more Class Treausrer " We will be putting on a dance in March. As of now, our most important job is collecting dues so that we’ll have money to put on the dance.” Brett Simon — Freshman Class President " We should be able to put on a great Senior Class Play, Oskey, and Winter Festival Week. I’d like for the seniors to have a drive for the Globe Santa Fund at Christmas time. An ecology week in the Spring, a Senior class picnic and field trip, and a five day Mini-Course Crash Program that would give everyone a chance to take some unique and practical courses which they ordinarily couldn’t take.” Debi Violandi — Senior Class Secretary In their terms of office, most class officers have noticed unique characteristics which are outstanding in their respective classes, and distinguish them from any other class. " I think our class is unique because of the interest of all its members, and not just a few ” Donna Picard — Junior Class Vice President " We have a very liberal class which makes it so differ¬ ent. We have our own ideas, which we are putting into actions. Our class may be dif¬ ferent, but our class is best!’’ Keith Perron — Senior Class Vice President " Students do not pay dues, and there is a lack of cooperation.” Dianne Simmons — Junior Class Secretary " We have more ambitious girls in the class than boys ” Debi Violandi — Senior Class Secretary Richard Bartelloni " The sopho- nores are a ;reat bunch of ids ...” Dave Le- Jlanc — Soph- more Class Resident ScKool is.. . 4 weeKlu Salute tIaq the marshall’s of franklin The Subject " I chose to teach history because it increases awareness of the results of actions or ideas.

Without the knowledge of the past, we would be less aware of the results of pre¬ sent conditions in the U.S. and the world.” (Ms. Daryl Mark) — " Social Studies is one of the more pleasant things to teach, unless you’re oriented toward music or art, which I’m not. It has a built-in interest, and new methods of teaching make it more exciting.” (Ms. Frances Peters) Remember always that you have not only the right to be an individual; you have an obligation to be one. You cannot make any useful contribution in life unless you do this. — Eleanor Roosevelt " I am teaching social studies because I enjoy studying and dis¬ cussing what has happened, why it has happened, and what I think may result from what has taken place.

Second¬ ly, I enjoy the relationship I have with people as opposed to other kinds of work.” (Mr. John Mulcahy) The Teaching Method — " I feel that the courses I am teaching, (U.S. History, Geography and Comparative Political and Economic Systems) are relevant and take into account the changes taking place today. To make the courses interesting, I try to relate the past with the present in hopes of seeing what can be done about the future.” (Mr. Robert Crowley) — " The methods I use to help the student develop into an independ¬ ent thinker and responsible citizen, can range from pure exposition to pure discovery. It would depend upon the individual student, the class size, and the material being covered.” (Mr. Harold Williams) " I cover a lot of material through discussion. Even though I’ve cov¬ ered some pretty controversial sub¬ jects, I’ve never been restricted. In fact, if there’s any restriction, it doesn’t come from an authori¬ tative level. It comes from the kids themselves, who aren’t open enough to re¬ spond intelligent¬ ly in a discussion, or who aren’t open to new methods.” (Mr. James Chelotti) View Of Man’s Accomplished Feats — " The move- ent toward Fen- n and the In- Liiry approach is step in the right erection.

There’s a nowledgeable rapport you have ith the students.

I do think though, that every ay you benefit from each other.’’ (Mr. Joseph Bek sha) — " I believe I have had the privi¬ lege of teaching perhaps some of the finest people that the earth has yet produced. I have sometimes been disappointed in them, and maybe they’ve been disappointed in me. I am not infallible and I have made many mistakes. The most important job we have as educators is to build for understanding be¬ tween people.” (Mr. James Johnston) — " I think I get through to some of them — the ones that want to be reached.” (Mr. Nello Luccini) — " I don’t see my role as at¬ tempting to become a person who relates well, I think you have to be able to communicate, and I can communicate.” (Mr. John Mulcahy) — " I’m not superior to my stu¬ dents, and my students are not infe¬ rior to me.” (Mr. James Chelotti) — " I feel I have succeeded in helping people and I think every day is a learning experience, but there’s much more we could do as far as education goes.” (Mr. Joseph Beksha) — " I think the information taught in social studies is relevant. All learning about people and differ¬ ent aspects of their cultures reveals something of the nature of human beings and perhaps the universe —- and that is always relevant.” (Ms. Daryl Mark) — " I like working with kids — the adult world comes across to me as being artificial; a little unreal, a little plastic. You find more honesty and sincerity among kids than you do adults. I love people, and people is what social studies is all about.” (Mr. James Chelotti) Peace is a daily, a weekly, a monthly process, gradually chang¬ ing opinion, slowly eroding old barriers, quietly building new struc¬ tures.

It is not always easy to make decisions that will facilitate the attainment of the goals of our school system and at the same time satisfy the needs of the students and faculty. " This year I would like to see the situation in the cafeteria improved as well as the elimination of vandalism within the building. The logical approach to the solution of these problems is to work through the Student Council. Students must be made to understand that this school belongs to them and it is senseless to damage the building and create an ecological nightmare in the cafeteria. I know that these COMPLIMENTS TO THE CLASS OF 03 S3 MAIN ST. FRANKLIN, MASS.

I do think that students should be more involved in a responsible manner. I believe I have expressed this thought to members of the student council. I have placed the social calendar under their control and have given them the responsibility of conducting the morning exercises. More important, principal, I am now able to work with many students under more pleasant circumstances.” J Sc ooL if... {ocf ru] (jour CdR § I have encouraged them to become more involved in activities that will certainly improve our school and I have faith that their efforts will be successful. I do not feel that I am far re¬ moved from the student body. On the contrary, I am closer to a great¬ er number of students. Previously my associations centered around those students in house B wing. Formerly many of my dealings with students were unpleasant due to the nature of my position. As acting We cannot learn from one another until we stop shouting at one another — until we speak quietly enough so that our words can be heard as well as our voices. — Richard M. Nixon Our Beloved Disciplinarians In the 3 houses in the high school, there is a " housemaster” in each. They are responsible for the students and the teachers in their respective houses. Each assistant principal has 26 teachers under his supervision. They meet with new and old teachers a few times a year with the idea of improving instruc¬ tion. Ms. Turco believes that a good housemaster is a person (male or female) " who is able to deal effec¬ tively with the interrelation between these people.” She also believes that a housemaster has to be open- minded. Being able to listen to people; hearing what they have to say. You have to be firm, but I very fair.” — Ms. Turco When asked their views on detentions Mr. Quinlan said that he did not like using a detention as a punishment for skipping a class but he cannot see any alternative to the situation. Mr. Rex feels that students are real¬ ly sending themselves to detention by misbehaving. " I would rather talk to the stu¬ dent and ask why they are misbe¬ having in class, and possibly work with the home.” Mr. Rex feels that too much of his time is spent tracking down stu¬ dents who skip class. " As a school we are an extension of the home and when the average parents send their son or daughter „ to school they feel secure that they are going to school.” He feels many students have become " in-school drop-outs” where it makes no dif¬ ference if the student spends all day in the cafeteria or all day at Dar¬ lene’s Donuts. The education they are going to receive is about the same. Mr. Quinlan likes the idea of an " open-campus” school but feels that it may be hard trying to enforce the rules of " open campus” because of the number of students who skip classes. Mr. Rex has vi¬ sions of an ideal school where stu¬ dents work as a unit and every student takes part in the same activ¬ ity. Students can get to know them¬ selves, each other, and their teach¬ ers. In bigger schools many people suffer from a lack of identity prob¬ lem this is when vandalism in¬ creases, and people draw judge¬ ments about oth¬ ers that aren’t necessarily true.” A student who was asked what makes a desirable housemaster answered: " It depends on how they treat a person. If they treat you half- decent, give you an even break then I think they’re O.K.’’ This seems to represent the feelings of most of the students. Special Note: In an interview with the secretaries of the house offices, it was asked if there were any especially amusing events involving the housemaster that they could tell us about. Mrs. Fleming of House B replied, " Not that I can talk about” and Mrs. Herbert in House C stated, " Not that we can put in the yearbook.” I wonder what goes on in the house offices?.

He was first introduced to education by his family, so there was a feeling of not wanting to break with tradition. Another important factor influencing Mr. Thomas’s career choice was that he entered college during the Depression and a state teachers college was not as costly as a private institution. His desire to do something led him into the field of education. Since Mr Thomas has been associated with education for so long, he was asked if he has seen any changes in students over the years. His reply was, " students are smarter, more sophisticated, and there is more knowledge to be acquired. Basically, they are the same from age to age and place to place.” When Mr. Thomas entered education there was a real need for teachers. But now there is a surplus of educators and people entering this field are no longer assured of a CD X o job. Mr. Thomas commented that " The teaching profession is a good one to go into. It’s rewarding, and you get a sense of self-achievement and value. There are jobs in education, in all occupations, and there are real places to go. The well- prepared person is probably going to get the better job.” Although Mr. Thomas could not name any special highlight of his career, he had this to say: " There are many proud moments in anybody’s career — many moments of elation, many moments of sadness and depression. I think the important thing to remember is that neither the moments of sadness nor the moments of elation last. We live in cycles with peaks and valleys.” This philosophy is one all of us actually live. Mr. Thomas, a man Mr. Thomas who has dedicated his life to education, has certainly had a sam¬ pling of both the " peaks” and the " valleys”. We can never solve problems and tackle diseases unless we conceive the whole. We cannot build a cathedral by carving stones but only by dreaming of it, conceiving it as a whole, developing a systematic approach, and only then working out the details. But dreaming and conceiving are not enough. We have to carve the stones and lift them. Many walls will crumble, if education takes the direction indicated by these theorists — walls separating child from adult, learning from living, emotion from thought, self from other, man from machine, theory from practice. The " classroom without walls” will be a reality in more than a physical sense. Robert Bickner, in Inventing Education for the Future, carries the implication of life-long educa¬ tion a step further: if adults learn, why should not children work? — Dunstan Garlan, Worlds in the Making Now, what is the alternative to the use of memory? The alternative is to build on strength. And strengths exist. These I call the functionings of children, and they are the basis of all individual education, and now can be made the basis of institutional education. School is. . . ■sialt- ' nc] tor more time What are the functionings of children? They could all become known to us because we all have been children. We have used these functionings, we have them in us, and we did with each such a good job, mastering it so successfully, that we do not have to do it again, (except in an extreme situation, as with an accident that takes, say, half of one’s brain, after which one has to learn to use the other half for the functionings involved with the missing half). On the whole, for example, we learned so well to sit that we do not have to learn to do it ever again. Sitting is one of the functions of children. — Caleb Gattegno, What We Owe Children — The Subordination of Teaching to Learning | There are four tasks facing a | teacher who wants to subordinate! t teaching to learning.

The third task of the teacher is find out how knowing becom-j knowledge. Teachers have a fourth task, t duty to consider the economy learning. — Caleb Gattegno, What We Owe Children — i The Subordination of L Teaching to Learning » e N To live up to the expectations of the community, an Assistant Super¬ intendent of Schools must put forth 100% interest and effort in educa¬ tion. Mr. Robert Cresto, Assistant Superintendent of Franklin Schools has dedicated himself to the im¬ provement of the present educa¬ tional system, and he has a strong background of experience upon which to draw. He taught English, Social Studies, and Psychology to junior and senior high school stu¬ dent in Providence R.l. for fifteen years. In North Adams, he held the position of Director of Adult Eve¬ ning Classes for two years, and right before he came to Franklin, he was Principal of Suffield Junior High School, Suffield. Connecticut. In interviewing Mr. Cresto, many of his ideas and opinions were re¬ vealed. “What influenced you to enter the field of education?” ’ ' Well, it first came to mind in 7th or 8th grade. It was two teachers in particular who seemed to make education a happy experience. Then when I was a junior in high school, my English teacher really sold me!” “Do you see any changes in the students over the years?” " Yes and no. Today young people still have the same need of recogni¬ tion and need to achieve success. But today’s student is more percep¬ tive to the environment than ever before. Their curiosity is stimulated to a greater degree. This is largely due to the mass media in general. Also, young people are more ready iccept certain things at an early I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I “Would you encourage students to go into the field of education?

There are many different areas open in the field of education — reading specialization, working with children with learning disabilities, etc These areas are opening up because these special services are mandatory in all towns now.” “What was your proudest mo¬ ment in your years at F.H.S.?” " I would have to say establishing the kindergarten system gave me the greatest satisfaction. Also estab¬ lishing the new career opportunities at the high school level, such as Dis¬ tributive Education, World of Con¬ struction, Health Careers, etc” grave responsibility.

This is true in reference to our school which is a complicated physical plant. This is true in terms of the tremendous variety of personalities which constitute the student body, faculty, and administrators. This also holds true at the top of the educational power structure with the school committee. Ideally, this popularly elected body is supposed to be representa¬ tive of and responsive to the needs of the town’s youth, parents, educa¬ tional personnel, and all other vot¬ ing residents of Franklin. Addition¬ ally, the School Committee serves as a line of communication between the school system and the town’s people. During the course of their duties, the committee works with student representatives in order to better meet the majority’s needs. The school committee, like any other publicly elected body is of¬ ten the subject of criticism; howev¬ er, as is true of all similar groups, this five member committee is se¬ lected in open election by voters of Franklin. Working in conjunction with Mr. Robert Simmler, Mr. Fred D’Errico, Mrs. Frieda Symmes, Mrs. Janet Guidrey, and Mr. Peter Burke, we also have our own representa¬ tives to the School Committee in the person of the student council president, Peter McGuire ’73 and a student advisory council with a sin¬ gle member elected from each class — Linda Cook ’73, Joanne Lewis ’74, Steve Harrington ’75, and Margo Woodman ’76. In an effort to be objective in our discussion we have tried to include some of the groups most involved with the school committee itself, the par¬ ents, the students, and the elected student advisors. Topics on which people expressed their views cov¬ ered a wide range of subjects. Mr. D’Aniello was an issue of wide concern. His philosophy of educa¬ tion and his team spirit struck some chord in the minds of most of the student body. It seems a widely ac¬ cepted theory that the school committee drove him out of F.H.S. As student Jill Sylvia put it ’’The one main decision that everyone thinks of is the decision which caused Mr. D’Aniello’s leaving this school. The school committee’s many decisions which tried to prevent Mr. D’Aniello from doing anything for us became a snowball affair.” Some students, however, feel that the school com¬ mittee must be given credit for trying. Kermit Brown, another stu¬ dent, sums it up well. " We expect too much from the school commit¬ tee. When a man puts on a police uniform his basic philosophies do not change; the man does not change. In the same way, when people are elected to the school committee, they are not going to completely change or conform. It is hard for me to say what I would do if I were on the school committee. Education is very serious and im¬ portant. We cannot say how we School Committee would react when the burden of de¬ cisions is placed on us because there are many pressures which in¬ fluence these decisions.” Peter McGuire, student repre¬ sentative to the school committee has something to say on his func¬ tion. ”My function on the school committee is not as a member, I can not vote. I can, however, give my opinions and I am asked my opinions. I am allowed into execu¬ tive meetings though I am asked to leave at certain times when things are being discussed they feel I shouldn’t hear. I am there to re¬ present the students’ point of view and I try to bring it in on the issues being discussed.” Peter doesn’t feel the student advisory board is really in need. It must be kept in mind however that just one person can not possibly truly represent the ideas of all the people. If the student advisory board does nothing else it will offer a broader scope of opinions. On the topic of the school com¬ mittee itself, Peter feels that every effort should be made to do the best possible job. Disagreement, though aggravating, is inevitable in any group which comprises such a vari¬ ety of diverse personalities. Con¬ structive action can arise from disagreement; however, often a vote is taken before a subject is ade¬ quately discussed due mainly to the impatience created by arguments. On the whole, however, Peter finds the committee members willing to listen and sufficiently interested to discuss matters with him. Linda Cook, a member of the ad¬ visory board said " I saw the meeting as a sad but amusing show, demon¬ strating a lack of intelligence, matu¬ rity, qualification, organization and common courtesy. But these people only represent the vote of the peo¬ ple of Franklin.” All the members of the Advisory Board feel that however limited their actual influence over the school committee may be, the stu¬ dent advisory board can bridge the large gap between the " powers above” and the students. Lori Bartelloni School Committee To do this the apathy in the school must be erased and every election for the Student Advisory Board should involve those people who are genuinely concerned with the school and the quality of education. In discussing the school commit¬ tee it would only seem fair to in¬ clude the comments of the mem¬ bers of the committee itself. Peter T. Burke has this to say, " Putt ing myself in the role of the taxpayer and parent is quite easy as I am both. My comments in this role regarding the effectiveness of the School Committee are that it could be more effective than it is present¬ ly if it could only gain the coopera¬ tion of others. By others I mean parents, taxpayers, teachers and students. Parents and taxpayers could be more cooperative by trying harder to understand the entire Continued workings of the School Committee not only those areas in which they have a complaint. The parents and taxpayers could form committees to gather information for the S chool Committee in order to for¬ mulate more logical decisions thereby benefiting everyone. The teachers could be more cooperative by being more tax dollar conscious in financial requests and in consci¬ ence by not misusing sick and per¬ sonal leave and by not being clock watchers. Students could be more cooperative by not always asking " What can we have?” nd some¬ times asking instead " What can we do?”. In addition to this they could meet their responsibilities by appre¬ hending that small group that is rapidly destroying both our build¬ ings and the reputation of all our students.” School is d pa win i Lani Desaulniers - m kfl LMH 22 School ' S .. . cutting lunch i Linda Cook Selectmen A selectman is defined as a town official, usually elected annually in most New England states to admin¬ ister town affairs. The town of Franklin has three selectmen: Al¬ bert R. (Pete) Brunelli, John J. Mc- Cahill, and Herbert A. Vendetti, each working for the town for a period of three years. Each of the selectmen have served in other areas of town government and have all been elect¬ ed on a staggered basis. Herbert Vendetti’s view of his role as selectman is influenced by his background in elected office and his business experience. ' ' This knowl¬ edge, plus my business experience provided me with additional tools that would enable me to make toler¬ ant and unselfish decisions and still maintain a business-like approach to our town government.” John McCahill, previously a member of the Zoning Board for eight years, also feels that his busi¬ ness and government experience has been an asset in his position as selectman. " I felt that with my expe¬ rience at making decisions plus by business experience, I could con¬ tribute something to town government.” " Pete” Brunelli, previously a five year member of the Advisory Board, and a nineteen year veteran in po¬ lice work, cites as the reason behind his running for office as " a wish to contribute to the town of Franklin with my past experience in town government.” A great deal of cooperative effort takes place among the various parts of town government.

Such are the by-laws from which Chief Peiiegri must operate. Per¬ haps if we would stop and listen to what he has to say and realize the restrictions in his job we could learn to look at him as a man and not as a person in a blue uniform with a sil¬ ver badge and no feelings. " Police work has become very complicated, and with the decisions of the Supreme Court, it makes po¬ lice work very difficult. As a result, it takes that much more effort to Officer Souza maintain peace in the community " . On the subject of recruiting 18- year olds for police duty, the idea of 18-year olds being recruited as po¬ lice cadets. " I don’t think they should carry a gun or have the pow¬ er of arrest,” said the Chief. " They should be recruited to direct traffic on Main Street, serve summonses, and give parking tickets, etc.” The Chief definitely has negative feelings about lowering the drinking age to 18. " A good 18-year old boy or girl can handle any responsibili¬ ty. But the average 18-year old boy or girl cannot handle liquor. The average 40-year old man cannot handle liquor. I don’t think there is anyone that knows how to handle liquor it’s as bad as drugs, and a dangerous thing to fool around with.” " It’s a thankless job. Young peo¬ ple don’t realize the problems involved.” There is enough evidence to prove that eighteen year olds buy and consume liquor whether or not the law permits it. Drinking only becomes more thrilling if it is for¬ bidden. No achievement could be as exciting as being able to cleverly conceal a Rhode Island purchase when the police stop the car. A bot¬ tle of beer could no longer stand as a symbol of defiance if the drinking age were lowered. To say that there is no one cap¬ able of handling liquor is complete¬ ly unjustified. If a person of eight¬ een cannot handle it, chances are that he will not be able to handle it at twenty-one. Responsibility is only learned when it is given and I think it should be given long before the age of twenty-one. As the surrounding states contin¬ ue to lower their drinking ages, the task of keeping out of the hands of minors will become increasingly dif¬ ficult. Police will be forced to waste a greater amount of time chasing and apprehending offenders. An¬ other important point to remember is that if people under the age of twenty-one are forced to go out of state to buy their liquor they will have to travel a greater distance with liquor in the car, thereby in¬ creasing the chances of drunken driving, which could injure an inno¬ cent person as well as the drunk. — Elaine Ulackas ’73 5 chool iS . . .

Sargent challenged the Massachusetts Legislature to accept his plans to reorganize the state government. There was no applause until he finished the speech. This new plan would eliminate 150 agenices, 2000 jobs and save $90 million dollars. The three areas of state govern¬ ment which will be reorganized are public welfare, consumer affairs and duplication services. Sargent proposed to abolish the present Department of Welfare which he felt was a wasteful system and establish instead two smaller agencies; one to administer pay¬ ments and control legibility, the other to provide social services to welfare recipients. He also suggest¬ ed that Medicaid be taken out of The Reorganization Welfare and be given to a health regulatory agency. More than 550 unnecessary jobs will be eliminated by changing from a system of iso¬ lated and expensive institutions to a smaller community based on clinics and centers. If this plan is adopted, the total state cost for human serv¬ ices programs will be $9 million less for the fiscal year 1974. Sargent also proposed to com¬ bine the 27 separate profession regulation boards in the office of consumer affairs into an agency eliminating 224 jobs. Reorganization in education in education Government. At the same time, he sketched a plan to eliminate many duplication services by combining 19 agencies dealing with out-door recreation into one, and the State Police and Schoo L is- • • HORSENECK in the spring in Education and Government Registry of Motor Vehicles traffic records keeping functions for a sav¬ ing of $70,000. Also in January Sargeant pro¬ posed to divide the Massachusetts educational system into five govern¬ ing regions. Key aspects of the plan included a new regionalization of the state system, with five regional boards running all levels of education from kindergarten through four years of college. A centralization of planning, co¬ ordination, and budget in two state wide super boards, one for elemen¬ tary and secondary schools and the other for higher education with 15 members each. An unprecedented proposal was set forth for the election of an un¬ specified number of members of the regional boards. These propos¬ als for new education governace were drafted by the Massachusetts Educational secretary, Joseph M. Cronin. In addition to the super boards, and five regional boards, the reorganization suggest three councils. (1). The expansion of the present Massachusetts Advisory Council on Education (M.A.C.E.) which is to currently just a research agency. (2). The continuation of the existing Massachusetts Council on the Arts and Humanities. (3). The establishment of a new unit bring¬ ing together libraries, classroom T.V., and other media used as learn¬ ing resources. Stephen Bennett In Memoriam On December 26th Harry S. Tru¬ man, the 33rd President of United States and popularly referred to as " The Man from Missouri”, died at the age of 88. To most of us in our generation, Harry Truman was a name in the history book and most of us knew very little about the per¬ sonality and character of the man. Harry S. Truman, like all of us, was many things to many people. He was above all else the President of the United States and his strength of character and the digni¬ ty he lent to that office gave the pos¬ ition honor and esteem in the eyes of the people. We all try to have enough faith in ourselves and in our own abilities so that we can face each day as a fresh start without looking with regret at the past. If there is one legacy which Harry Truman left to all of us it is the vision of a man who could not be broken by the circumstances of life and who had the confidence to never look back in regret once a decision had been made. When he selected the epitaph he wished inscribed on his own tomb¬ stone from a grave marker he had seen in an old western cemetary, Harry S. Truman said it all —- " Here lies Harry Truman — he done his damnedest.” — no excuses, no re¬ grets, a simple statement. On January 22nd, Lyndon Baines Johnson, the 36th and only surviv¬ ing former President, died at the age of 64. He was a man who wanted to be remembered as the inventor of " The Great Society”, and a friend to the poor and minorities, but he has been more closely associated with the tragedy and domestic violence connected with the war in Vietnam that split this country. The irony of his life and death was that both were connected to the war. In his lifetime, the war was like a great weight around his neck, and he did not live to have this burden removed because he died some 48 hours before the signing of the cease-fire agreement. Most of us associate a certain characteristic with Texas and Tex¬ ans — BIG. L.B.J., a Texan, was in¬ deed a big man. He was big in stat¬ ure and he was big in the power he asserted as President of the United States. President Johnson brought out two reactions in people — love or hate. There was no neutral ground. Since Lyndon Johnson was a President in our lifetime, we cannot really make an objective evaluation of his administration. That’s a job for the history books. But he was President and he did influence our lives. No one will ever hear the words, " My fellow Americans” without thinking of a cowboy hat, a Texas twang, and L.B.J. On the White House being haunted: " This old place cracks and pops all night long and you can imagine that old Jackson or Andy Johnson or some other ghost is walking. Why they’d want to come back I could never understand. It’s a nice prison, but a prison neverthe¬ less. No man in his right mind would want to come here of his own accord. Now about those ghosts. I’m sure they’re here and I’m not half so alarmed at meeting up with any of them as I am at having to meet the live nuts I have to see every day.” — HST,1946 30 School • • • hidinq broken J tubes ' On dropping A-Bomb: " We faced half a million casual¬ ties trying to take Japan by land. It was either that or the bomb, and I didn’t hesitate a minute, and I’ve never lost any sleep over it.” — HST " To hunger for use and to go unused is the worst hunger of all . Presidents quickly realize that while a single act might destroy the world they live in, no one single decision can make life suddenly better or can turn history around for the good.” — LBJ To his advisors while weighing a plan to bomb North Vietnam: " I have one more problem for your computer. Will you feed into it how long it would take 500,000 an¬ gry Americans to climb that White House wall out there and lynch their President if he does something like this.” — LBJ Peace On Tuesday, January 23, 1973, President Richard Nixon announced a cease fire agreement that would bring an end to the United States’ military involvement in the war in Indochina. In a brief interview he assured the world that he had achieved " peace with honor” and all U.S. troops would be withdrawn within sixty days of the signing. The world reacted with joy, hope, despair, relief but above all, with caution — " Could it be believed?” " Would both sides keep the pact or would it only be temporary?” These were some of the thoughts going through people’s minds as they heard the news. The cease fire was to go into ef¬ fect Saturday, January 27th at 7:00 P.M. Would it last? If so, all prison¬ ers of war would be released in sixty Monday, February 12th marked an event for which Americans had long been waiting and many had begun to fear would never come — the release of the first POW’s. One hundred and forty-two Americans came off U.S. Air Force evacuations jets in the Philippines ending the ordeal which had seen as long as eight years for some and giving hope to hundreds of others still had in prison camps. No words can better express ev¬ eryone’s sentiments than the words of the returning POWs and their families. " We are honored to have the opportunity to serve our country under difficult circumstances. We are profoundly grateful to our na¬ tion for this day. God bless America.” — Capt. Jeremiah A. Denton, Jr. POW, 7 ¥2 years " I know we’re going to have to be patient. We’re going to have to give a lot of ourselves. It’s going to take some time, but it will be the happi¬ est job of readjusting I’ve ever done.” — Mrs. Joy Jeffrey, wife Maj. Robert D. Jeffrey, POW, 7 years days. U.S. forces would be pulled out of Vietnam within sixty days. There would be a full accounting of those missing in action (MIA) and South Vietnamese sovereignty would be guaranteed. But there were also many other questions being asked: " Had it been worth it?” How do you answer that question when you see a mother crying because her son is being re¬ turned or a mother in tears because her son will never be home again? What do you do about those who fled the country and are now seek¬ ing amnesty? Should they be al¬ lowed to return because the war is over, or should they be punished because they refused to serve their country? Or were they, in fact, de¬ fending their country by their actions? " It’s unbelievable he is out of there and on his way home.” — Mrs. Georgette Coffe, wife Cmdr. Gerald Coffe, POW, 7 years " People just don’t realize what they have until they’ve lost it.” — Lt. Cmdr. Everett Alvarez POW, 8 ¥2 years » These were just a few of the ques¬ tions we were faced with as we con¬ sidered the prospects of peace in Vietnam and the years ahead. " During some of our darker days in Hanoi, there were occasions when we tried to cheer up one an¬ other by emitting a signal which in¬ dicated we had detected some good sign that peace with honor was near. That little signal was the soft whistling of the song, ' California Here I Come.’ We knew we were just whistling in the dark, but now, thank God, it has come true.” — Capt. Denton " I believe that over 99 percent of us would say it was our faith in God, and secondly, faith in our country (When asked how the men with¬ stood the long imprisonment). " I don’t mean to say that our country came second, but in there we devel¬ oped a communion with God.” — Capt. Denton " I’m a little tired. We’ve been moving very rapidly for some time and I’m a little exhausted, but this is the greatest Valentine’s Day of our lives.” — Capt. James A. Mulligan Schoo i is • • Slamminj ihe (ocher on your hand • 31 The National Election It has been the first time in our high school career that we have had the opportunity to observe a nation¬ al election. Being an event which has a great effect on the lives of the American people, as well as one of importance in United States history, we have included the results of questions asked about the elections to a sampling of Franklin High stu¬ dents and townspeople. Our presidents, past and present, have such high ideals set for Ameri¬ ca. They speak words of promise, hope, and peace. They set goals for the people who want to live in a great nation. In reading these stu¬ dents’ comments, apathy towards the elections is evident. This couldn’t be the way our presidents would want their future leaders to be. ’’Did you vote in the national elections?” " No.” " Why not?” " I’m not old enough.” " How old are you?” " twenty-four.” " Liar!” " The student populace is not aware of what’s going on.” — Bonnie Beach " Nixon never bothered me.” " Do you think that a petition could be started at FHS to protest the bombing?” " No. We just don’t have the leadership.” " Did you vote in the national election?” " No.” " Why not?” " My mother wouldn’t take me!” " Did you support Nixon or McGovern?” " Neither.” " Why?” " I was too busy” " Do you think we could get stu¬ dent support for a petition against the bombing?” " No, the students are too apathetic.” — Anita Bussy " Do you think Nixon has proved himself in the last 4 years?” " He did a few things right, a few things wrong.” — Vincent Allavano " I think Nixon is sort of ' money crazy’ ” — Betty Warner " Do you think we could get a petition to halt the bombing?” " No. There’s not enough stu¬ dents aware of the war let alone care about the war.” — Debi Violandi The Franklin townspeople also have strong ideas about why they vote, and whom they place their trust in. Blair Morse voted because it’s his right as a citizen of the United States. He supports Nixon because he’s doing a pretty good job — at least he’s trying hard to improve the economy. Blair feels no peace will come as yet. There’s no real great reason why Betty Smith voted for Nixon. She lost respect for McGovern. Though she can’t tell if he’s doing a good job or not, she hopes that the peace treaty is signed. Ronald Dion voted for McGovern in the national elections because he thought that he was better than Nixon. Ronald feels that no one keeps all their campaign promises and peace won’t come as soon as people think. Nixon’s not doing a good job ac¬ cording to Milly Bonafazi. She felt that it was her duty as a citizen to vote, so she voted for McGovern. She isn’t confident that McGovern would keep his promises, but she strongly feels that Nixon isn’t keep¬ ing his. Nevertheless, she feels peace will come by Nixon. Anonymous didn’t vote because she isn’t concerned. What does this say for the people of our town? " We cannot learn from one " Some men see things as they are and say why. I dream things that never were and say why not. — Robert F. Kennedy " This nation, this generation, In this hour has man’s first chance to build a Great Society, a place where the meaning of man’s life matches the marvels of man’s labor.” — Lyndon B. Johnson " If the law is upheld only by gov¬ ernment officials, then all law is at an end.” — Herbert Hoover Environmental Forces What is environment? It’s a lot of different things to a lot of different people. Webster’s dictionary defines it as, " all the conditions, circum¬ stances, and influences surround¬ ing, and affecting the development of an organism or group or organ¬ isms.” The different combinations of these things are tremendous, but those of us living here in Franklin and attending FHS, can’t help but have certain things in common. The simple fact that we are brought to¬ gether under one roof, five days a week, is a common influence. The life within the building may affect students in completely different ways, but the fact remains that it does influence in some way or another. Even before we ever came to FHS, the majority of us had lots of things in common. Our games, TV shows, fads, holiday customs and tradi¬ tions, were all pretty similar. Many of us have always been surrounded by the changing elements of the New England climate. Freak snow¬ storms in April, balmy Indian sum¬ mer days in late October, and Janu¬ ary thaws where everyone always hopes (in vain) that winter is draw- ingto a close. People make up the most impor¬ tant part of our environment. Those that surround us — our parents and family, friends, relatives, fellow workers, and other students, teach¬ ers, and other assorted people we come in contact with, all contribute in forming a part of our environ¬ ment. They are the ones who dictate to a great degree, the final outcome of our personalities. A child who has parents who continually beat and abuse him is certain to turn out quite differently from one who has loving parents who are concerned about his well-being. A person who has been well-treated by most, has a better chance of making a satisfac¬ tory adjustment in the world, than one who has been rejected by peo¬ ple. A rejected person usually has no self-confidence and often feel bitter towards society, and is left to endure loneliness througho ut life. No one wants to take the blame for making a person an outcast, but it is the individuals that make up society who do it. We all have responsibility to our¬ selves and others. Of course, it’s natural to try to create a happy en¬ vironment for ourselves before thinking of others. But we must remember that as much as others influence us, we do the same to them. In formal or informal groups, our actions have an effect on oth¬ ers. It’s frightening to think that we have the power to " make or break” another person’s future happiness, but we all have it! We must all work to make this world of ours more livable for every¬ one. Whether it’s in the field of ecol¬ ogy, community affairs, or just human relations, we should work towards this goal: a clean world where all people will be accepted as they are and all have a feeling of purpose. This may seem like a dreamer’s utopia, but we’ll never know until we try! School is-. . Star -Sheen ' Hunger Walk — Saturday, May 13, 1972 is a day that will be " sorely” remembered by some 1,100 people who walked, (and the great number who spon¬ sored them) in a " Walk for Develop¬ ment”. Early in 1972 word was first heard of the Hunger Walk. A group of students using the Federated Church as headquarters, were plan¬ ning with Young World Develop¬ ment to educate our community of the problems of hunger in the world. A twenty-five mile route was planned from the High School park¬ ing lot to Milford and back. The walkers were sponsored by the mile. The money, totaling approximately $16,000 dollars, went to projects chosen by the coordinators. 42.5% went to the Great Lakes Mr. Leone Inter-Tribal Council. This program formed by the 10 tribes of Wiscon¬ sin, run by the Indians themselves, is setting up youth centers, coop¬ eratives, and learning centers and other developmental programs. 25% is going to the project at the Mission of San Lucas Toliman. The average home of the Guatemalen Indian, a one room dirt and grass hut, is being replaced. The Indian pays for half of the materials and gets his neighbor to help him make it. The remainder (except for 15% for the projects of the American Freedom from Hunger Foundation) goes to the Heifer Project Guatema¬ la. This project is setting up training centers for peasant farmers. John Hollingdale But just why were people walking? " When we started this program, I realized how bad the hunger prob¬ lem is, and this is a way to help.” Linda Cook " The March is to help people in other parts of the world and U.S. who are poverty stricken; and to get the public aware that there are peo¬ ple like this in the world and to get moving and involved in doing something. Alot of kids walked for the novelty of it, but when things are explained, it opens their eyes to what is really happening.” — John Harrington 3f School IS. ' 3 : praymcj for Soouj days Tom Roy 1972 — Sole Power D’Aniello family ”1 think it’s time the youth of Franklin became aware of what’s happening in the World. We’re the richest country in the world and it’s a shame that we take for granted the fact that we have food on the tables, and good schools. It’s the best thing I’ve been into, here in Franklin.” — Kermit Brown " Most students are too content in Franklin, and there is a big reluct¬ ance to go outside of the town. If they can’t get out of town they aren’t going to become aware of things. If this is a beginning there is a lot more that should be done be¬ fore they really pick up on things.” — John Carroll Mr. Cheliotti A few people walked solely for the challenge of it all. But those people amounted to only a handful com¬ pared with those who walked to help their fellow men. They suffered blisters, sunburns, and aching legs, giving them a taste of the discom¬ fort less fortunate people live with everyday. But the satisfaction of knowing you helped, made it worth it. Besides, it was fun! Linda Flateau " I’ll make it all the way. The way the Army trains you, you can do anything if you set your mind to it. It’s a beautiful cause. The Marine’s didn’t even show up! They’re a bunch of chickens. They’re sup¬ posed to be tough, but they aren’t as tough as the army, because every one of the army recruiters are here.” — Sgt. John Dennis " I made the walk with picture of children with distended stomachs and bony arms in mind. As I became weaker by the mile, this image kept me going.” — A. J. D’Aniello School ' s... (overs m the h$(( Henry Walsh Project Swing Project Reach Out While many of you are asleep in bed on Saturday morning, about thirty volunteers are stumbling around getting ready to leave for the Kennedy School or Parmenter School for Project Swing. Swing takes place on Saturday mornings from nine to twelve o’clock. During this time, the place is filled with pre-school children just doing their thing. That could in¬ clude playing with blocks or similar toys, making puzzles, coloring, or any number of things. In the course of the morning, each child goes with his class to two of the following programs: art, mu¬ sic, drama, or gym. (Who is the gym instructor but our own Mr. McCall!) The basic purpose behind Swing is to prepare a child for the first grade. Thanks to Swing, the first grade teachers have a much easier job and a more cooperative class. Project Reach-Out takes place on Wednesday afternoons at three o’clock at the Kennedy School. Reach-Out consists of another group of volunteers who work with children enrolled in Special Education. These volunteers patiently work with the children on arts and crafts, or teach them such sports as street hockey, basketball, bowling, and skating. A place that has been fre¬ quented by them is MacDonalds. (This mus t have been the volun¬ teers’ idea!) These volunteers should be praised for giving their valuable time and for showing so much love to these children. The children gain so much, and as for the volunteers, they get just as much out of it. " The kids learn how to get along with one another, and how to ex¬ press themselves more clearly. The volunteers learn how to be more affectionate to these kids who thrive on the affection of others. These are the kids that should be loved.’’ — Fran Garboski, Reach-Out volunteer IK ft V Sc oot ' S ... FLUNK MGr There’s a fine bunch of " new” students at FHS. (I could never fig¬ ure out i f " new” meant just off the assembly line or what.) Here’s a lit¬ tle insight to some of these new friends. One common factor between all of them is that they all seem to come from big towns or cities with the exception of Cathy Potten, who came from a small town in Maine. Most of them also talked favorably about Franklin, except Sue Boisture who still isn’t used to living in a small town. " I didn’t like Franklin the first time I saw it. I had come from Tulsa, Oklahoma, which is a pretty large city, and the other places I’ve lived in have also been large cities. (Worcester, Mass., Detroit, Mich., Houston, Texas) I didn’t see how I could possibly be happy in such a little town. I liked the school be¬ cause I’d gone to a small, private, school during my freshman and sophomore years. I thought it would be a nice change for me. I liked the people the first day I moved in and I met some of them. The friends I’ve made are about the only thing in this town that I like. I’ve found that the school is too big for me.” John Williams had a change of heart after he was here for a while. " My first impression of Franklin were not too favorable, the reason being that the city I came from was Washington D.C. I loved it very much and Franklin was and is cer¬ tainly not Washington. But after the homesickness wore off a bit, I start¬ ed to see Franklin as Franklin and not something else. I judged it a lit¬ tle less sharply. Over all, I find that it’s not so bad.” He was impressed by the size of the school. " About the school — my first impression was surprise at the size of it. However, I was also a bit scared, but soon got over that because of most of the students’ friendliness, and found that it wasn’t so bad. About immedi¬ ate judgements, of course I made some — doesn’t everyone? Howev¬ er, they were minor in character so I don’t feel they are really prejudices. Some still hold however, but not many.” Jim Dunwiddie from New Bruns¬ wick, N.J., called Franklin, " small and country-like.” " School seemed all right, but smaller than I’m used to. I noticed Sch ooL ' s. ■ ■ forged dbserft JotSss 1 Margaret Ridgway that there are many friendly people and some people who care only about themselves.” Eric Van Nortwick’s impression was that Franklin was just " differ¬ ent” from El Paso. " The main thing about it is that Franklin is a small town, and El Paso is a large city. Not as large as Bos¬ ton, but it’s big enough compared to Franklin. The environment around Franklin made an impres¬ sion. El Paso was surrounded by desert, but look at Franklin — noth¬ ing but trees!” Pam Fagan has been with us since junior year and says, " I can’t make any judgements about being a newcomer in town, because I’ve lived here for thirteen years. But I am glad I switched to Franklin High from Marian, because I feel a part of the town now. Before it was like being an outsider because the Franklin kids won’t accept you if you went to a school out of town.” On her first day of school here, Cathy Potten, also here since junior year, was a little scared. " I was very scared at first, but after I got off the bus, JoAnn and Ruth talked to me and helped me around all day. I felt very comfort¬ able after that.” Sue Boisture thought her first day at the beginning of junior year was O.K. " My first day at FHS was pretty good. I met a lot of kids that day, but it was really Sue and Ruth who helped me get through the day. I was scared stiff and I went to the wrong house for my math class — I felt two inches high walking in late! It wouldn’t have been so bad if I hadn’t been a new girl. Poor old Eric was lonely his first day at school. " Well, it was kind of lonely my first day at FHS. The only people I knew were some of the guys on the football team, but I didn’t know them very well. I guess that first few days I might have been wishing I was back in Texas. But after awhile, I got to know more and more peo¬ ple. So, I was enjoying going to FHS more and more. Now I’m glad I go to FHS. I met a bunch of new friends, and all of them are great friends to have.” Jim Dunwiddie had similar feel¬ ings: " My first day was very trying. I School iS.. . ■finding netu todoS to chea.t? only knew one person before school started plus I knew some of the guys on the soccer team. I have to say it was pretty lonely, having been ac¬ customed to knowing everyone. I was very glad for the people who sat down and introduced themselves to me. It was strange — I was used to knowing everyone, and when I looked around, I didn’t know anyone!” Even John Williams was a little frightened! " As I said, my first day here I was a little bit scared. But it wasn’t so bad because I soon met a lot of people. I was a little disoriented at first because of the floor plan, which was rather confusing. Howev¬ er, the day went rather smoothly.” Eric Van Nortwick talked about assemblies. " The thing that was unusual but not different about F.H.S. and my old high school was the way kids act at assemblies. The assemblies just turn into a zoo or something. It was the same in Texas. Some kids don’t know the definition of respect. I can’t really suggest anything to cor¬ rect this. We tried at my old school, but nothing had worked until the day I left.” " I think F.H.S. ought to have open studies and open lunches where the students could go outside and leave the school grounds. This way stu¬ dents will probably be a little less likely to cut classes and be other¬ wise unruly.” John Williams also stated a dislike for the traditional Initiation Dance. " The only thing that I felt is especially unusual is the Freshman dance. I felt that this is unusually cruel because I’ve never seen this type of thing and was sur¬ prised at the violence in which the seniors are supposed to indulge this dance.” Sue Boisture suggested no study halls. " I don’t know how it would work but I don’t think F.H.S. should have study halls. We didn’t have them at Kelley, (my old school) We had six classes a day and no study halls. It was really good that way.” Now that we’ve had a taste of what it’s like to be a " new kid” in Franklin and at F.H.S., How about a look at the other side of the coin — what it’s like to move away from Franklin, the place where all your friends and memories are. Francis Rice Paul Caldararo i m lnn ' wiiiu j Linda Stewart, who moved to Florida at the end of junior year, sums it all up: Franklin High, Franklin High, brave, courageous, and bold; what memories it holds. When I left Franklin, I left an important part of my life; but the memories of the times I had there will always be with me. I was asked to try to express my feelings on what it was like to leave a school, a town, and its people to move to an unfamiliar place. During the summer, before what was to be my senior year at Franklin High School, my family and I left for Florida. When I walked down the halls of my new school that first day I didn’t feel brave, courageous, or bold. I was lost and alone. My eyes searched the crowded halls for one familiar face. My ears strained to hear a familiar " hey Stew” or " How’s it going?” I still feel I’m a part of Franklin High through contacts with my friends back home. My loyalties still lie behind " Our school” and the " mighty Panthers”. Everyone makes changes, or moves on in life. It is hard to leave behind the world you know and en¬ ter a strange one. I learned you must go on living, getting the most out of life, live it to its fullest. I will always fondly remember the " good old days” as I go on living the new ones. My old friends are my best friends and I love and miss you all. Franklin High, Franklin High, brave, courageous, and bold; what memories it holds. Schoot is • • • maKmy paper airplanes Junior High School — Topic: Drugs Think back to junior high for a minute. Remember the attitudes you had toward drugs and alcohol? The majority of junior high school students don’t have too much ex¬ perience with alcohol and expecial- ly, drugs. Their attitudes towards these things are pretty conserva¬ tive, for the most part. But in just a couple of short years, these atti¬ tudes change considerably. Is it that we become more tolerant as we grow older, or just more permissive? In a poll conducted in the junior and senior high schools concern¬ ing drugs and alcohol, differences of opinions were very evident. The following results included the most answers received, and also a few of the more unique ones. Even if each poll was not labeled ’’Junior High” and " High School”, anyone would be able to guess which was which from the answers given. Junior High School Students 1) What do you think about drugs? " Yum-Yum” " I think they are terrible be¬ cause people can die from the hard stuff.” " Helpful in some ways, harmful in others.” " They’re good” " Well, when you’re sick they are good, but for kicks they stink.” " I hate them” " Who ever takes them has to be sick.” " They should only be given out with a prescription and they are very harmful.” ”1 don’t think they’re good, cause it costs money.” " I don’t want to try them.” " Junk!” ”1 think they are all right if you find you need them to cope with life.” 2) What other types of crime are contributed to by drug involvement? ’’Bad Ones!” " Breaking and entering, steal¬ ing money for drugs.” " Robbery, killing, kidnapping” " Sexual crimes” " Getting busted” 3) Do yoii think grass leads to harder drugs? " Yes” ’’No, I don’t.” " It’s possible.” " Just because you smoke grass doesn’t mean you’re going to get hooked on harder drugs.” 4) Why do some people become addicted and others do not? " Some people have more self control than others.” " Some people don’t think it’s worth it.” " They have problems.” " They try it and they like it so they keep on taking it.” " It depends on the drug.” " They want to be like others.” " Because everyone has a differ¬ ent system.” ’’Some think it makes you good.” " They do because they want to.” 5) Do you think you will ever take drugs? " I don’t think I would ever have any reason to turn to drugs, but there’s always a possibil¬ ity.” " No, those who take drugs are stupid.” " Yes, if I’m sick.” " No, because I’m not that kind of kid.” " I have!” " I’m too young to say, but I don’t now.” 6) If one of your children were on drugs, what would you do? ’’I would ask why and stop him.” ’’Kill him!” " Take him to the doctors.” ”1 would call the doctor to have his stomach pumped.” ”1 don’t know, I’d have to wait. I don’t have any children.” " Sign them up on some special drug program.” " Send him to the cops.” " Kick him in the !” " Talk it over with them calmly. Then kill.” " I’ll ask them why and explain that they are poisoning their body.” " I would beat them to death.” ”1 don’t know, it never hap¬ pened.” " Sell them.” C Q) -4- ' O CL CO O School S.. ■ ■fire drills m fr ? {reezmg Co(d ' Sharon Wyllie Junior High School — Topic: Drugs cont.

" A bad home life.” " Pains from disease.” " They like to feel good.” " Whatever problems may be on their minds.” " Junkies — people who can’t control their lives.” 9) What kind of a feeling do you get by taking drugs? " None.” " It depends on what you take.” " A good feeling.” " I really don’t remember, it’s been so long.” " You get high,” " Wicked!” 10) Do you drink?

Sure, also gingerale and Hi-C.” " Only when my parents are around.” " Water, milk, soda.” 11) What do you think of people who drink? " I think that it’s their prob¬ lem.” " They’re not the best people in the world.” " I don’t think drinking once in awhile is that bad, but if someone is addicted they should try to stop drinking.” ' That’s their bag.” ' They’re nice. ' I think they’re stupid. ' They are not committing a crime. " It’s nice to have a glass of beer for enjoyment.” " I feel sorry for them some people I think crazy.” " Drinking isn’t bad if you don’t do it too much.” 12) Why do you think the drinking age is being lowered to eighteen? Do you think it’s a good idea? " Yes, because if you want to drink, at any age, you will, re¬ gardless of the law.” " Because they want to kill more people by drunken driv¬ ing, and they think people grow up faster these days. No, I don’t think it’s a good idea.” " Because more kids are being caught drinking.” " It’s a good idea because I’ll be eighteen someday.” " Seeing that the age for voting is eighteen, the officials must think they are capable of drink¬ ing a reasonable amount.” 13) Why do you drink? " It tastes good, you feel good " To keep my mouth wet.” " Because on special occasions you should.” " I don’t, but some people just enjoy it, but some can overdo it.” " Why do others?” " For kicks or just to be happy or because you’re nervous.” 14) What kind of mood do you get in when you have been drinking? " Violent.” " I don’t know, I never tried it.” " Well, I have seen people pretty drunk, and I think they’re vio¬ lent.” 15) Do you think grass should be legalized? " Yes, because people can die from it?” " No, because it’s not good for you.” " No, because more and more people will take it.” " No, because the world has enough problems as it is, and probably lead to the legaliza¬ tion of strong drugs.” " Yes, for health.” " Yes. It’s just like drinking, and if people want to smoke grass, that’s their bag.” " I really don’t care.” " Yes, if kids want to take it why can’t they?” " No, because it’s very harmful and kids are killing themselves over it.” 15) If your parents were on drugs, what would you think? " I’d tell them that they should set an example for the kids, and I’d tell them what they would tell us.” " I would think they were craz- y.” " I wouldn’t think they were any good.” " Parents that don’t care about their children.” " They are nuts!” " I’d think they were stupid and try to help them.” " I would run away.” " I’d tell them to give me some.” " I’d think they were pretty stu¬ pid, and if they tried to make me take some, I wouldn’t.” " I would harass them contin¬ ually until they stopped.” " They’re foolish.” " I wouldn’t think too much of them.” Quality mens clothing, u wishings, shoes at mode iate p tices Sharon Gavel Franklin High School: 1. What percentage of the student body have tried drugs? And take them? " I could not answer that ques¬ tion.” " 45% have tried drugs and 90% take drugs.” 2. What do you think about drugs? ”1 really wouldn’t know myself, but I think if that’s the way they want to live it’s up to the person who is taking them.” ”1 think that if you want to do it, do it, but don’t push it on any¬ one else. (But there is harm in taking drugs.)” " Some are alright, some aren’t. I think that if you want to take them it’s up to you.” " They’re alright — if you can handle it and it really depends on the type you take.” " Think they’re great! Some¬ thing to do and you get good feelings.” " Certain drugs are bad.” " Your own decision.” " There’s nothing wrong with them.” " Some of them are pretty good. I wouldn’t take any of the hard drugs.” " I don’t think they’re bad if you don’t use them all the time.” 3. What other types of crime are contributed to by drug involvement? " Mugging.” " Breaking into houses for money or things that can be sold.” 4. Do you think grass leads to harder drugs? " No, but it’s possible, it de¬ pends on the person.” Topic Drugs " It depends on the individual.” " No, grass is a non-habit form¬ ing drug. It makes you happy and feels good, good enough not to have to take anything harder. Unless you have and want to get it out of your mind.” " No, you can use any kind of drug and not become addicted. At first it’s all in your mind.” 5. Why do some people become addicted and why is it some don’t? " Some people know when to stop.” " Because they got no head. Because sometimes they are afraid to do them all the time.” " Willpower; it depends on what type of person you are.” " Addicted to what — explain yourself.” " They go too far.” " They can’t control them¬ selves.” " They have to get more screwed up. They get along good with their parents.” " Usually the people who have big problems and a hard social and family life, use hard drugs and become addicted. Other people take grass and lighter drugs and don’t get addicted.” " Some can’t cope with life, so they want to be off all the time and others can do it and not get hooked.” 6. Do you think you will ever take drugs? " Yes, because it is a good feel¬ ing, but I always remember it won’t last long.” " Well — not hard drugs like L.S.D. or heroin.” " I really don’t know.” " I already tried enough.” " No! except maybe I’ll try grass — MAYBE.” 7. If one of your children were on drugs what would you do? " I would get involved with my child and see if they have any bad hang-ups. If they had prob¬ lems I would try helping them out.” " It would depend on what drugs, if I found out they were on L.S.D. or heroin and were hooked, I’d send them to a drug hospital.” " Find out what it was and if it was dangerous.” " I don’t know.” " I’m not going to have kids.” " Ask him or her why. He or she can smoke pot and take speed occasionally. I wouldn’t want him to become a junkie, be¬ cause I wouldn’t want him to steal my T.V.” " I’d try to get them off it.” " Explain drugs to them and let them make their decision. " Bring him to the cops. Just like my father would do to me if he knew.” 8. Why do you think people start taking drugs? " If they have any kind of emo¬ tional problem or to be liked by others.” " Some just to see what it’s like. Others to get away from their problems.” " To make them feel better.” " They get sick of drinking.” " For something new and differ¬ ent.” " Because it’s the only way to live by what I see.” " No brains, no reality, want some things to look at besides crayon colors, I don’t know.” (cont. p. 46) Children not only have to learn what their parents learned in school, but also have to learn how to learn. This has to be recognized as a new problem which is only part¬ ly solved. — Margaret Mead 9. What are the main reasons (in your opinion) that people turn to drugs? " Broken homes. " " Emotional hang-ups (boy friend), to be like the parents, physical hang-ups. Kids they hang around with. " " To try something new, to get away from reality. " " Get things off their mind. " 10. What kind of feeling do you get by taking drugs? " I don’t know.” " Good and bad, it really makes you think about what is going M on. " They like to feel good. (And they feel secure.)” " You feel relaxed and you can forget your problems. But you always have to face them after¬ wards.” " Speed — you have a fast feel¬ ing. You walk and talk fast and you’re restless.” " Grass — you get the giggles and you feel great.” " Downs — you don’t really feel down, sometimes you have the giggles, things look slow and weird to you.” " It depends on the drug you take. Sometimes I feel real happy. Sometimes I feel spaced out.” " Wacked.” " Happier or depressed.” 1. Do you drink? " Yes.” " Sometimes.” " No.” " Yes, because I enjoy having a couple of drinks or beers.” " Yes, because I like it but I don’t do it as I used to.” 2. What do you think of people who drink? " It’s better than taking drugs.” " Some go overboard. I don’t believe in getting so drunk you fall over just to feel good.” " I don’t think there is anything wrong. It’s just like drugs that is taking them right. Not too of¬ ten, because you can become an alcoholic.” " It depends on how you hold it. I used to get totally drunk and make a fool out of myself. Now I know better. I think that peo¬ ple who drink to get totally smashed are fools.” " It depends on their disposition after they drink.” 3. Do you think alcohol is habit forming? " No.” " It could become a habit if you drink everyday.” " Yes, because you can become an alcoholic just like a junkie.” " Yes, because the more you drink the more it takes to get drunk so it gets so you have to have a lot to get feeling good.” " Yes, but can be controlled if the person has guts.” 4. Why do you think they are changing the drinking age to 18? Do you think it’s a good idea? " They want more people to change to drinking instead of taking drugs.” " It’s O.K. I guess. But once you’re 18 it’s no fun to sneak cause it’s legal, so it might de¬ crease the drinking a little.” " Yes it’s a good idea because that’s what you people are look¬ ing for, a break and they go along with you more easily if you give an inch. But they may also take a mile so must be careful.” " Yes, because now the kids 18 can be looked at like men. If they are treated like men and women they’ll act like it.” " Because if you can fight in combat or go overseas and join the service, why can’t you drink? If a man dies and hasn’t had a drink he’s not a man! Very good idea.” " Because, if you’re old enough to vote and be treated as an adult, you should have adult privileges.” " Because if you can go and get killed at 18, and be put in prison at 18, you can drink at 18.” 5. Why do you drink? " To take the place of drugs, to feel good.” " When I drink it’s usually at home and maybe two at the most.” " I enjoy myself when it is hot out — a nice, cold beer feels good.” " It’s fun!!” " To feel better and have a good time.” " Because I like the taste of liquor.” " I like to feel that way once in a while. And just because it’s there.” " For social reasons.” 6. Why do you think you started? " Because other kids did.” " I wouldn’t call it starting.” " To get high.” " When my friends did, I decided to have some and I liked it.” " I never did.” 7. What kind of mood do you get in when you have been drinking? (funny, violent, etc.?) " Funny, yet unpractical, non¬ sense talk.” " Tired.” " A good mood at times and bad at other times.” " I just get in a good mood. I can talk to people even the people I hate I can talk to without it bothering me.” " So metimes not very often I get mad easily, most of the time I’m in a funny, dopey mood.” Timothy Davey Lee Ann Brady FHS: Topic Drugs — cont. " I get in a nothing mood. No mood at all.” ”1 like to listen to music.” 8. Do you think grass should be legalized? Why? " Yes, because it’s not habit forming.” " Yes, then people could try it and decide for themselves if they like it, less problems with the law.” " Yes, because so far they ha¬ ven’t found anything wrong with it. You could use it to smoke instead of cigarettes.” " Yes, because when some peo¬ ple drink they get all upset but I’ve seen people on grass who wouldn’t be bothered being happy or sad or violent. It’s a better high to me than beer.” " Yes. They say in a way it is harmless and if it were, the kids wouldn’t do it as much cause it’s legal and it would decrease cause ' I’m not breaking the law now’ so something else would pop up that is legal harder drugs so they are on their ass- M es. 9. If your parents were on drugs what would you think? " I would think they wrong be¬ cause it is not their time. They had alcohol we have drugs. If they just smoked pot I wouldn’t mind at all. But then again if they did dope it would be up to them not me.” " They are really digging it.” " If it were just grass I wouldn’t mind at all even if they didn’t give me permission. If it were anything strong I would be ashamed and disgusted with them. And no matter how old I was I would make plans to move out. I wouldn’t mind if they took downs or speed as long as they weren’t violent, because I wouldn’t want them to get hurt nor anyone else.” " It’s their business, I would not want them telling me not to take dope!” " I’d think they were having problems with work, marriage, or something really big.” " I don’t know.” " I wouldn’t look up to her or him as parents.” " That they were trying to look and act like their kids, the younger generation.” " I can’t even imagine my par¬ ents taking drugs. They’re too intelligent. They enjoy life too much to want to miss any of it freaked out on drugs.” (A student’s comment on drugs and alcohol) I would like to ask all these people with " emotional hang-ups, boy¬ friend troubles and the boredom blues” who need pot and alcohol and drugs to " get away from their problems” exactly what there is in Franklin to create such crucial problems? Everyone is a prisoner of his own experiences. No one can eliminate prejudices — just recognize them. — Edward R. Murrow School S. . . a place that needs, traffic signals, ' Don’t you know there are people in India and Biafra who are starving to death? Did you ever watch films or see pictures of the Nicaragua floods — people everywhere with no homes, no clothes and no families? Have you ever visited a state school for the retarded or a terminal can¬ cer ward? That’s right, I’ve forgotten — " there’s nothing to do in Franklin”. The P.O.W.’s who were in North Viet Nam for eight years didn’t have anything to do either. And you say you’re oppressed? Or are you too busy " bellyach¬ ing” and feeling sorry for yourself to find anything to do, let alone look for it? How many times have you tried to change something you feel strongly about? So not everybody’s perfect. There’s bound to be some kind of problem that’ll get you down at one time or another. But you know if people in Franklin get hooked on people and not drugs and alcohol, they might make it through just fine. It’s like Bill Withers sings — " Lean on me, When you’re not strong " I’ll be your friend I’ll help you carry on For it won’t be long When I’m going to need Someone to lean on. — Debi Violandi Each honest calling, each wal k of life, has its own elite, its own aristocracy based on excellence of performance JamesB.Conant Bruce Phillips You think you’re cute, you wretched creature, taunting me as I slave away in this madhouse — the books, the papers, the irrelevant work piling up around me, locking me in. And you! Weaving in and out of the half-opened window shouting, " I’m free, (ha, ha) I’m free!” How can you be so cruel as to tease an imprisoned person? Do me a favor, huh? Just spread those fan¬ cy wings of yours and fly away. Besides, things of beauty don’t quite fit into the scheme of things around here anyway. — Diane Fournaris, ’73 Sc hoo i iS ■ •. bonn j tea checs We wanted someone to write an article on APATHY at Franklin High School, but we couldn’t find anyone willing to do it. 3ckoot • • • a sckool ring T APflThV HISS !!

" It does matter whether you win ! or lose; it matters a great deal, but it is also very important how you play the game. Anyone who has been associated with athletic teams can¬ not be successful unless he has played to win. A coach’s philosophy should be centered on teaching to win with an awareness that the pos¬ sibility of losing does exist. " " Preparing a boy for losing is a tough thing to do, and it would be , against my basic philosophy. I don’t think you should prepare a boy for losing. " " Having all of the success he has had, he would be man enough to accept a loss the same way he would be able to accept a win — with class and poise. I am always reminding the boys — ’Keep clean, keep your poise, and always be a gentleman. If you lose, you should congratulate the other team.’ I hope | that they will always remember to be gentlemen. I have always stressed that and I hope they will j always remember it. " " Our success has made us aware other teams have the added incen¬ tive of beating us. This is not really a problem; it’s a nice challenge. " " The only problems are the pres¬ sures that you create yourself by asking ' When is it going to come that we lose? " ’ " We should stop creating pres¬ sures, and take one game at a time. Little or big pressures that you cre¬ ate yourself, or that the team cre¬ ates, can be avoided if you just slow down, slow down. " " Our record is in the past, it will never be taken away from us. We will have to look forward to the fu¬ ture, ' do your own thing.’ " Education has to do with the complete development of individu¬ als. It includes the modifications that occur in a total human organ¬ ism. All conditions; social, physical, emotional, intellectual, and spiritu¬ al are involved in the process and are affected by it. There are many mediums through which education takes place. One category of activity is called sports. We refer to inter¬ scholastic athletics as being part of the curriculum; athletics or sports are, therefore, education.” (con’t on pg. 60) Rodney Dunn Susan Ormand WOODSH6D 3cf)OOi IS ' -- ■ZofifiO rti fij yCur )0(- Kd ' j Cakds, Wedding 3twitatioms -Boutique Qkoppe is ‘xfaiit 528 - 9191 Thomas Roy Robert Velluti B. Keras (Mr. Leone con’t from pg. 57) M ln athletics we find situations which often resemble quite closely the situations which will be experi¬ enced in later life. This similarity increases the probability of trans¬ fer. Control of temper, acceptance of authority, obedience to rules, co¬ operation, and subjegation of self for the good of the team are all examples of experiences which can be carried over from contests and games. In sports competition we find experiences which are person¬ al, emotional, and intense; many psychologists agree that what hap¬ pens under such circumstances tends to have significant influence on all individual ’s character. In ath¬ letic situations there are other peo¬ ple involved as observers: friends, teammates, and fans. Working and playing under the glare of this kind of spotlight is certainly likely to have developmental and education¬ al values.” School is - • ■ c roioded AaZtt at c ' hooi ' We, the Panthers are proud to be Gettin’ it together for a victory Get up and go — And do it right now — ' Cause we’ve got the team That really knows how F — H — S We want a victory.

Here’s the letter: Title: In Love with Life — or How It Would Be If I Were Killed In An Auto¬ mobile Accident. Agony claws my mind. I am a sta¬ tistic. When I first got here I felt very much alone. I was overwhelmed with grief and I expected to find sympathy. I found no sympathy. I saw only thousands of others whose bodies were as mangled as mine. I was giv¬ en a number and placed in a catego¬ ry. The category was called " Traffic Fatalities.” The day I died was an ordinary school day. How I wish I had taken the bus! But I was too cool for the bus. I remember how I wheedled the car out of Mom. " Special Favor,” I pleaded. " All the kids drive.” When the 2:50 bell rang I threw my books in the locker. I was free until 8:40 tomorrow morning! I ran to the parking lot — excited at the thought of driving a car and being my own boss. Free! It doesn’t matter how the acci¬ dent happened. I was goofing off — going too fast. Taking crazy chances. But I was enjoying my freedom and having fun. The last thing I remember was passing an old lady who seemed to be going awfully slow. I heard a deafening crash and felt a terrific jolt. Glass and steel flew everywhere. My whole body seemed to be turning inside out. I heard myself scream. Suddenly I awakened. It was very quiet. A police officer was standing over me. Then I saw a doctor. My body was mangled. I was saturated with blood. Pieces of jagged glass were sticking out all over. Strange that I couldn’t feel anything. Hey, don’t pull that sheet over my head. I can’t be dead. I’m only 17. I’ve got a date tonight. I’m supposed to grow up and have a wonderful life. I ha¬ ven’t lived yet. I can’t be dead. Please don’t bury me! I’m not dead! I have a lot of living to do! I want to laugh and run again. I want to sing and dance. Please don’t put me in the ground. I promise if you give me just one more chance. God, I’ll be the most careful driver in the whole world. All I want is one more chance. Please, God, I’m only 17. — Boston Globe I was greeted with a cold icy stare, a stare that gave me vibra¬ tions of " What the hell are you doing here, you deserted us a long time ago.” But I joined the group, just as an observer. It didn’t take long to find out that that’s all I would be allowed to do. So I listened carefully to all that was said, when I could hear the per¬ son talking. Amid the discussion could be heard the sharp retort of " Shut up”, " I was first”, and many other such interruptions. The discussion consisted of the same crap that was being discussed months ago when I had left, bring¬ ing up such aspects as " Has anyone seen my cigarettes”, " I’m really depressed, you see I have all these problems”, " Boy, the group sure changes after Monday nights”, " Do we qualify as Jesus Freaks”, " Is our group as cliquey as the Freaks, Heads, and Jocks?” " I carry my Bi¬ ble with me now”, " It’s your turn to speak now”. Sometimes I wonder about the sincerity of the spoken feeling and thought. People seem to say things just to make themselves heard and make an impression on the other members of the so-called group. Now comes the group cut-down by one of the group members, be¬ ginning with " I’m getting really sick of some of the people here and some of the things they do.” Then comes the pity party and self cut down. " Now everybody move in a circle, time for Spontaneous Prayer, and don’t play with the candle.” The candle is now coming, I’ll have to think of something to say, but maybe I’ll just let it pass by, yes, that’s what I’ll do, because nobody will hear or care what I say anyway. Anyway, I can’t out do what that kid over there said. I don’t know, but this just seems to be the reason for them to pray out loud. I’m sorry that I am so bitter and angry about this whole idea of prayer meetings. I can remember when they were worthwhile, leaving a person with a feeling of fullfill- men t and happiness, but not anymore. There are still a few people within the group who radiate love and friendship and are very sincere and earnest in their prayers, and their attitudes as Christians. I’m sorry for all those who will never know what it used to be like. i When I was a sophomore I spent a weekend in Methuen Mass., experi¬ encing one of the most beautiful weekends of my life to this point. The weekend called an Encounter was truly an eye-opening experi¬ ence which I will cherish for as long as I live. During the Encounter are a number of talks and discussions about Christ, other people and our¬ selves — I loved it! Now when the Encounter is over and it’s time to go home, the people who are in charge tell you that it is very important that when you re¬ turn to your own homes and to school, that it is your responsibility to try and keep this new found feel¬ ing of " LOVE” within you, while also trying to share it with as many other people as possible. This is where the Prayer Meetings come in. In Me¬ thuen every Thursday evening from 7:00 till 10:00 they have a Prayer Meeting where teenagers who have made an Encounter, can come and talk to others, and share some new experiences they might have had since they made their Encounter. The Prayer Meetings were set up as a weekly renewal of the Encounters. After the discussions or activity of the night was over with came a time when we would stop everything, sit down on the floor, and pass around a candle for what was called " Spon¬ taneous Prayer.” During Spontaneous Prayer any¬ one who wanted could pray aloud, in a more personal way, while the rest of the group prayed with the one holding the candle. This contin- P School la • r infor , ' ■prortt. William O’Grady ued until all those who wished to pray or expressed some kind of feel¬ ing with the group had done so. The problem was that I was the only one my age from Franklin who had made an Encounter, and Me¬ thuen is 65 miles north of here, so that made getting to Meetings on Thursday nights nearly impossible. But as time went on, I convinced more and more of my friends, who in turn did the same to their friends, to make an Encounter, so from November of my sophomore year, up until now, about 85 or 90 kids have made an Encounter, and out of that number 5 did not like it. So with the number of kids from Franklin who had made an Encoun¬ ter growing so fast, I thought that maybe we should start our own Prayer Meetings down in Franklin, on the same idea as the ones in Methuen. So just about a year after my first Encounter, we had our first Prayer Meeting. It was held in Hollis- ton, at the Xaverian Brothers seminary. The first meeting didn’t go over to well, because there was a mix up of plans and we had to think of something else to do, with very little time to do it. But with the second meeting went terrifically, with many more meetings to follow. There were 13 of us then and each week the number grew by at least two. The reason the group was growing so fast was because there was a realness about the group, and the group was sincere. We were constantly trying to show our Love for Christ and others, to all those around us. Honestly, I really can not believe the change in the group. Not too long after we started the meetings we were forced to move them to Franklin, because it was too difficult to get rides to Holliston to and from meetings. So we moved. Where to? You must know, to the Federated Church of Franklin. It was in the center of town and easily accessible to many of the kids who now could walk to the church on Monday nights. Then not too long ago, a number of people started abusing the meet¬ ings and there was a sudden down fall in attitude, lack of sincerity, and a complete disregard for others. Most of the original kids got dis¬ couraged when they saw what was happening, and decided not to go anymore because it became de¬ pressing to see such a great thing go right down into the ground. I stayed on myself, thinking that it would start to get better and that this was just a bad time for the whole group. Well it seems as though I was wrong because I am no longer going to them myself. It is to depressing to see what has hap¬ pened to the group. I felt very cold and unwanted in the group I had started a year before. A number of people in the group decided to take it upon themselves to make a new set of rules, change many things that had been part of the basics from the beginning. I had become very disheartened and depressed, and so now I leave them, those who are supposedly young Christians in sincere hopes that they will be able to straighten it out and get their ideals and goals back on the right track. I am not saying that there aren’t people who go who aren’t sincere; it’s just that a number of the new kids think that petty rules are going to solve the problems that exist and they’re wrong. I really feel badly because first of all it was so beautiful once, and also because the new leaders don’t seem to know how to really reach the others. All I can say to the Pray¬ er Group is, Good Luck! Maybe someone who will be able to handle the group and bring them back to their own level. I honestly hope so because they are a great bunch of kids, who are at least trying. Once again good luck!!! School is • ' a opod elfl.ce " to . We A l»0 The recently organized Recrea¬ tion Department is on the road to providing meaningful recreational activities in a comprehensive pro¬ gram for all age residents of Frank¬ lin. The plan of progress is reported to be running along successfully, so this goal is well under way. Michael D. Jones ( " Spike”), Franklin’s recreation director, has a definite interest in and high opinion of today’s youth. " I feel that the youth of today are a very concerned generation,” says Mike. " They have a definite awareness of the prob¬ lems of today’s society, their envi¬ ronment, and their sociological presence in the community. They have the ability to produce change where change is needed and can become a valuable asset to the fu¬ ture of this country. I believe this holds true for the youth of Franklin.” Though the departments pro¬ gram has been basically centered for the younger children of Frank¬ lin, Mike is hoping that it will reach a higher level of teenagers in the next two years. When asked if he thought that the youth of Franklin could handle the responsibility of a youth center and if he would be willing to help us get one, he had this to say. ”1 believe that no one can project whether or not a Youth center will be success¬ ful, however I feel that there is a desperate need for such a center in Franklin. The success of such a cen¬ ter lies upon the shoulders of the Youth involved in its operation. While in college I was a member of a study committee that did a project on Youth centers, team centers, or whatever name affix to them, across the country. Our results of this study showed that there is no successful equation. There are suggestions and different ideas but the success cannot be predicted. After a Youth center has been or¬ ganized and begins operation if it is going to be successful, the success is spontaneous. I would be more than willing to work for a Youth cen¬ ter in the Town of Franklin and hope that some day in the near future this will be a concrete reality.” Mike is willing to do his part but he would also like the youth to help themselves by totally supporting a Youth center. ”By totally,” added Mike, " I mean a large majority of the youth, not just five to ten con¬ cerned students to carry all the weight.” " I hope I have influenced or af¬ fected the Youth in Franklin in the sense of meaningful use of leisure time and on the other hand the Youth have contributed to me many ideas in programming, evaluation, and common sense.” " Today’s Youth have access to an education far greater and superior to the education their parents re¬ ceived. They also may enhance their awareness of the world around them due to the great feats in tech¬ nology that the media of today em¬ ploy. Their vast concern for their future is to be admired.” Michael Reagan Steven Hedtler Perhaps no one cares or maybe no one dares to face his fears and ask the question, how long? How long can spring flower to greet a ray of gentle light through a filth cluttered plight? How long can a bird sing her wild psalm to a still crystal air when a clean fresh breeze becomes vane? Words have turned to years and yet the question’s still there. How long can a tree grow tall when it’s bed of earth has gone dry? How long can a sun shine through a poisoned dark and bleak- en sky? Today always turns to yesterday, there is no escape, for we are the ones who have to live upon the land we rape. How long can a land flourish with only tar and concrete left to nourish? How long will man exist when the struggle of nations has been beaten and ceases to persist? George Le Blanc, ’74 COMPLIMENTS OF Summer Spring We need the tonic of wildness, to wade sometimes in marshes where the bittern and the meadow-hen lurk, and hear the booming of the snipe; to smeii the whispering sedge where only some wilder and more solitary fowl builds her nest, and the mink crawls with its belly close tc the ground. At the same time that we are earnest to explore and learn all things, we require that all things be mysterious and unexplorable, that land and sea be infinitely wild, unsurveyed and unfathomed by us because unfathomable. We can never have enough of nature. We must be refreshed by the sight of inexhaustible vigor, vast and titanic features, the sea-coast with its wrecks, the wilderness with its living and its decaying trees, the thunder cloud, and the rain which lasts three weeks and produces freshets. We need to witness our own limits transgressed, and some life pastur¬ ing freely where we never wander. — Walden Remember thy creator in the days of thy youth. Rise free from care before the dawn, and seek ad¬ ventures. Let the noon find thee by other lakes, and the night overtake the everywhere at home. There are no larger fields than these, no wor¬ thier games than may here be played. Grow wild according to thy nature, like these sedges and brakes, which will never become English hay. Let the thunder rum¬ ble; what if it threaten to ruin farm¬ ers’ crops? That is not errand to thee. Take shelter under the cloud, while they flee to carts and sheds. Let not to get a living be thy trade, but thy sport. Enjoy the land, but own it not. Through want of enter- prize and faith men are where they are, buying and selling, and spend¬ ing their lives like serfs. — Walden Autumn Few come to the woods to see how the pine lives and grows and spires, lifting its evergreen arms to the light, to see its perfect success. Most are content to behold it in the shape of many broad boards brought to market, and deem that its true success. The pine is no more jumber than man is, and to be made into boards and houses is no more its true and highest use than the truest of man is to be cut down and made into manure. A pine cut down, a dead pine, is no more a pine than a dead human carcass is a man. Is it the lumberman who is the friend and lover of the pine, stands nearest to it, and understands its nature best? Is it the tanner or turpentine distiller, who posterity will fable was changed into a pine at last? — Walden Winter The th in snow driving from the north and lodging on my coat con¬ sists of those beautiful star crystals, Nature is full of genius, full of the divinity; so that not a snowflake escapes its fashioned hand ... The same law that shapes the earth-star shapes the snow-star. As surely as the petals of a flower are fixed, each of these countless snow-stars comes whirling to earth, pronounc¬ ing thus, with emphasis, the num¬ ber six. — Walden Susan Boisture The human race has had long experience and a fine tradition in surviving adversity. But we now face a task for which we have little expe¬ rience, the task of surviving pros¬ perity. — Alan Gregg Why are they tearing up the hill behind the school, why is a skating rink so damned important that it deserves a hill being torn down for it? I’m really disgusted with this thing; I think it’s a good indication of something, though I’m not sure quite what. This town places such a high priority on sports, and saving money, I don’t know for sure which of these the rink would come under. I find it really disgusting that humans think that they are so im¬ portant that they have the right to take land, that is being used by all sorts of different types of animal life, and decide that the land is use¬ less. After we (yes I’ve decided to include myself in as a human) have made this decision then the next step is to develop the land. This is done by tearing the land apart, making it unfit for anything except certain reptiles to live there, then we build something square on the land. Now squareness is very definitely un-natural; the shape that nature would take would be spherical. Now let’s review what we’ve done: we took a piece of land that was occupied and being put to good use and destroyed it; we then built a structure that is distinctly alien and un-natural; furthermore we often have the audacity to call this struc¬ ture a home and claim that we have improved the property, a claim that I consider to be completely assi- nine. So why have they torn down the hill in back of the school?

STUDENTS Once upon a time along the line of our earth’s history, a caveman bopped his fellow cave women on the head and dragged her into a sunset with promises of electric dishwashers and a duplex house in the suburb. All well and good, but he made the mistake of throwing in an education and old Suzy cavewoman started noticing that there was more to life than dancing around the grand piano with the Lemon Pledge. But, alas, the home was still looked upon (no knock to the home!) as her " place”, and when she looked to the stars, (or sea, or forest) our buddy, Sam the cave¬ man, excuse me, the modern day man (no difference really) said, " Gee, Suzy, you were always happy staying at home before what happened?” She replied, " Well, Sam, if you haven’t noticed; there’s a world out there! a world of concrete, of tar, of trees, and beautiful soil. Its a world of happiness and great sadness! It’s a world where things happen and I want to be a part!” " Oh.” So, one unsatisfied Suzy, modern day woman (unsatisified? or striving for better satisfaction?) led to many more. They were looking at each other, not as great early- morning coffee-makers, but as pos¬ sible scientists, truck-drivers, forest workers and just great " people”. The possibilities are limitless, aren’t they? Well, with the " liberation” of Suzy, Sam got pretty paranoid — he was a truck driver and couldn’t see women driving his route. But Suzy talked to him and eventually made him understand: he had great possi¬ bilities too! All of this took a long time, but in the end (no, Suzy didn’t bop him on the head) they lived happily ever after, (won’t we?) — Sylvia Smith ’73 Womankind Away from home I am nothing.

' AS Tradition " Once the way of handling a situ¬ ation becomes institutionalized there is ordinarily great resistance to change or deviation — Clyde Kluckholn This is the essence of tradition. Within our school we have many traditions, one of them being, the Freshman Aquaintance Dance. Throughout our lives we habitual¬ ly practice the popular custom of tradition. It’s like the thoughtless repetition of such phrases as gasun- tite, goodnight, good-bye, etcetera. Without any conscious effort the average person knows just the ap¬ propriate phrase to rattle off in a given situation. Tradition often lends some security as it provides one with an accepted mode of be¬ havior. When someone conforms with a tradition there is always the comfort in realization that he has the approval of the majority of people. " The Aquaintance dance was al¬ right. I think most seniors do it just because they’ve had it done to to them.’’ — JoAnn Legge In recent times we find more and more often people questioning and changing their conditioned or inher¬ ited behavior. " I think it’s a bad tradition. The whole thing is based on humiliating the freshman and the seniors are lowering themselves to behave like that.’’ — Bob Delaubenfels Man is discovering the aspects of his culture which were once adap¬ tive and have persisted even though they have ceased to be useful or beneficial. " I hated the Aquaintance Dance. It should be to get to know people not to put them down. " — Diane Laliberte On the other hand, tradition of¬ ten exists merely because of the practicality of it. " It would be bad to break the tra¬ dition because the Freshmen look forward to it.” — Lori Bartelloni Why knock a good method of doing something unless a better one can be substituted. " It wasn’t that bad except when they put shoe polish and stuff in your hair. " — Hilary Keefe " It’s a good tradition as long as it’s kept under control. " —■ Tracy Airial " If initiation could be done in school it would be better so there would be more control. " — Debbie Dickenson Tradition utilizes good ideas. " It welcomes the Freshmen to the school and shows them how to belong.” — Sue Corkey " Now that I’m through it, it’s al¬ right.” — Jacky Yadisernia And change — Some things remain the same from year to year, therefore, tradi¬ tion exists. The time comes, howev¬ er, when a new and more appealing way of doing something is intro¬ duced. The old way is then outdated and enthusiasm is aroused by the new idea. Take this yearbook for an exam¬ ple. It surely isn’t like last year’s or even the year before’s. The set-up is different; even the material is much different. This book reflects the ideas of the class of " 73”, not " 71” or " 72”. It’s a creative first for Franklin High School Yearbook. } Some people got together and decided that something different and interesting was what they want¬ ed for a lifelong remembrance of their High School years They materialized their ideas. Senior pictures also took a dras¬ tic change for the better, the kids had a choice between formats and informals. Every informal is as dif¬ ferent as the personality of each person in them. The backgrounds display color, individuality and the beauty of the natural outdoors. The people look better in these natural settings, even considering they wer¬ en’t touched up as formats are.

Every-one now wears " I’ll make you an offer you can’t refuse” tee-shirts, sweat shirts, and buttons, having realized the differ¬ ent connotations of the phrase! Aside from this " The Godfather” has had a more serious and lasting effect on our society. It presents us with a first-hand and supposedly accurate view of the Mafia. It also leaves us with the impression that murder and crime can be justified and condoned. Rubbing out the whole mob is justified when it’s seen as " the only answer” to clean¬ ing up a messy situation. Through " The Godfather” we see all the ideals upholding the Mafia. One’s first responsibility is not to himself or his familty but to the mob. Also, one never under any cir¬ cumstances or provocation talks. There is a blind loyalty that binds members to the Mafia and makes them risk their lives. Within the Maf¬ ia is a great chain of respect for the man above, whether he is known or unknown. " The Godfather” has presented us with all these ideas and seems to be trying to teach us to love the Maf¬ ia. It’s up to us to decide how far our values can be stretched. " Godspell” Godspell, the gospel according to St. Matthew, an absolutely fabulous musical. When I went to see it, I had antici¬ pated a very religious and somber play, written by some Jesus freak type person. Well, it was a religious experience, but far from somber. It was overwhelmingly entertaining. You did your best to keep your eye on each of the actors so as not to miss any single part, for each of the actors was so splendid that if you happened to let your eyes drift off to some corner of the stage, you were sure to miss something. As I said previously, I had expect¬ ed a very somber type play about the gospel, but at times was near tears with laughter. The one time that the audience was very quiet and serious was the Crucifixion; here was an experi¬ ence I shall never want to forget. Using what appeared to be no more than a tall chain linked fence for scenery, the actors transformed the stage in a very unique way to Cal¬ vary, the place of Christ’s death. Unbelievably, they expressed the deep sorrow, and love that must have been there on that hill 2,000 years ago. I never thought that any stage performance could be such an emotional experience. If someone were to ask me today nearly a year after experiencing " Godspell” if I enjoyed the play, they’d be sorry they asked, because I would want to drag them off to see it at first chance. Stephen Schwartz deserves a pat on the back for a truly creative play. I cannot really express how deep¬ ly " Godspell” affected me, but I can say this much, I doubt that I shall ever forget it.

Can’t believe anything you read these days, but we did, despite the lillies and anthems and all. Oh, we knew our noses were itching for something, with all the beads and mantras and incense.

Later I was asked by someone to come to the readings. I figured I had nothing to lose, so I went. The part I liked most was Charlie Brown. I was nervous when the tryouts came around because Mr. Sacco and Mr. Balest said it would be possible for girls to play boy characters. When I did get the part, it was a joy that could not be expressed in words. I like acting and this part had a lot of acting. It was a good feeling. Everyone that had anything to do with the play was just fantastic. But every now and then we would get irritated and said the hell with this and so on. These feel¬ ings were only temporary. We helped aach other out on different parts of the olay. I am especially grateful to the cast nembers that counted for me during HAPPINESS.” I learned to be right on cue, or it could ruin a whole act. I also learned to use my voice to my credit.” — Kris Nicholson, " 74” (Patty) " At first I guess I was a little nerv¬ ous, but my fear was overcome by the thought that at least I could get up in front of an audience. I did the best I could to make myself look like the character I was portraying. I knew my lines, but I still was nerv¬ ous about goofing up. When I did, I covered it up. I think what really made me nervous was worrying over tripping Linus’ blanket or slip¬ ping when I had to skip across the stage.” — Kathy LaVoie, " 74” (Lucy) — Bill Brennan, " 74” (Charlie Brown) " I love performing on stage with live Audiences, it’s a beautiful experience. I wasn’t nervous about making mistakes, because if you get nervous about it — hat’s when you make mistakes. When I read the play the first time, I aughed so hard, that I wanted to help nake other people laugh too.” — Lori Potter, " 74” (Snoopy) " It was a small part and I thoroughly rnjoyed working with everybody — they vere beautiful. Although it had a habit of nterfering with all my other activities ncluding most of my spring vacation, •nee I got to rehearsal, I loved it. " I loved working in Charlie Brown and intend to be in other plays. I like acting and singing and just might go into it for a career. " Yes, I learned that being in a play is fun, and it keeps you busy and out of trouble. Also, you learn to work with people in something like this.” — Tom King, " 76” (Schroeder) " We had few problems and those we had everyone cooperated to fix. We were all happy working on this. We all got along great and had a blast.

Also it gave each of us courage we didn’t realize we had, and it revealed tal¬ ents and creativity many of us didn’t realize we possessed.” — Barb LeBlanc " I’ll never regret participating in the Junior Miss and I’m glad I did. I don’t feel I lost because every girl wins something if not just confi¬ dence in knowing she can do some¬ thing like this.

Beyond the Aspen Grove embedded in the forest, dwelled many different kinds of wildlife. Birds made their nests high in her branches, Deer and others inhabited her groves with little strife. Soft bows made grazing grounds so at ease. Know one knew of the beautiful Aspen Grove, her fresh smell of pine in early spring, sweet berries, clean water, hidden like a cove. The mountain is filled with many a flower, which will someday freeze and die. The Aspen Grove died one day, one day when someone told a lie.

Theresa Churchill Language Festival Compliments to the Senior Class from BERTONIES produce and deli inc. 259 Union Street On May 22, 1973, all the foreign language teachers were holding their breath as 6:30 p.m. ap¬ proached. The halls and cafeteria were decorated ac cording to their designated countries for Franklin High’s first Foreign Language Festival. The festival was held to show others what can be done with a lan¬ guage rather than just the regular listen and repeat classes. Each language had its own hall and a place in the cafeteria where anyone could sample food from the different countries. Many of the walls were decorated with street scenes. Students were dressed in the costumes of Italy, France and Spain. Music, dancing, fun and games took place in many rooms. Movies, complete with ads, were shown for all those who were interested. As the night went on, more and more people arrived to take part in the festivities, and more and more people left with a better understand¬ ing of the countries they had seen. The first major changes I would make in public educaton would be: To make education a private and per¬ sonal endeavor. Let only those be educat¬ ed in schools who earnestly and honestly desire to be educated. For the others let them have apprenticeships in the fields of their talents and choices rather than being constantly square pegs in the pre¬ sent round holes of education; to stran¬ gle the computer and wrench out the guts of all such impersonal means of evaluating human beings; to cut in half the college and high school years recog¬ nizing fully how much time is wasted in every ’’educational” day; to teach mod¬ ern foreign languages by conversation from the fourth g rade and the classics (Latin, Greek, Hebrew) from the sixth grade by sight translation; to assign at least 4 works a week for outside reading for cultural background and sheer enjoy¬ ment; to arrange for one semester of a tri-semester year to be devoted to travel in U.S.A., Europe, outh America, Africa, and Asia in that order. We cannot and will not truly evaluate Mr. D’Aniello’s contributions to F.H.S. students until we follow the career of those who recognized real leadership and choose to emulate his generous spirit and live by his humility which is the mark of greatness. Time is needed to highlight his contributions. We are too close to have a fair perspective. Who am I to improve on the two great¬ est commandments? Happiness in life lies in first loving the Lord Our God and then in loving our neighbor as ourselves. 126 Rtmtmbv iOhtfl.., you ia.tcA d ArnoncAn Souish ' d Mrs. E.

We Won ... No We Didn’t .. . The Russians Did! DEATH — The Aftermath It was the hope of the Germans that the 1972 Summer Olympics at Munich, West Germany would help the world forget the heartless mass- murders of the Jews in the Nazi Germany of 1936. But the Germans were to have no such luck. Once again, Munich was the sight of senseless human killings. For twenty hours, the occupants of the Olympic Village and the world experienced a feeling of high ten¬ sion, suspense, and horror as they awaited some news of the 11 partic¬ ipating Israelis being held captive by eight Palestinians. The Palestinians, armed with machine guns, broke into the rooms of the unsuspecting Israelis, and demanded from the Germans safe passage of themselves and their hostages to any Arab nation except Lebannon or Jordan. After hours of planning and debating the Germans decided to grant the Arabs their wish, but in reality, they had no intentions of ever allowing them out of the country. As the Arabs began to step out of the army truck provided as trans¬ portation to the airport, Munich po¬ lice began to fire. As a result, the remaining Arabs unmercifully shot the Israeli prisoners. The crisis saddened and sickened the hearts of everyone, and cast a tragic shadow over the remainder of the Olympic games. It was an opin¬ ion of some that the games should have been cancelled in mourning for the 11 victims, but instead, a brief memorial service was held, and the XXth Olympiad was carried through because, as many athletes said, " That’s the way they would have wanted it.” Cathy Ayer Everywhere science and technology are affecting our minds and lives. Be¬ cause of man’s hunger for more knowl¬ edge and abundance of material goods, we are living through a worldwide scien¬ tific-technological revolution. It promises to produce a magic, pushbutton dream world of leisure and luxury. The world looks up to science as its deliverer from poverty, pain and suffering. Unfortunately though, our outcome is often left in the hands of science. Man’s knowledge production has brought him millions of cars and labor-saving gadg¬ ets, while at the same time this produc¬ tion is polluting our air with smog.

At no cost, FHS and FJHS cheerleaders and basket¬ ball players have been admit¬ ted to games whether or not 4 m fa mem her u ien... boyx more suit ' ja.cActs to a dartre ' 1ST PROJECT REACH-OUT RECYCLING COLLECTION SET FOR MARCH 10 Reusing our natural resources is +-■»-»« o metals regrow of min import dump s metals Begin and ho month, run a eye 1 in center will b field(next to the Town Hall) and will be run from 3a.m.- 4p.m. F Project organisers must ask that all paper and metal piece be removed from the bottles I and cans, and that all bottles I and cans be reasonably clean, f The time it takes to peel a 1 label off a bottle or rinse | out a can will be well spent, f ac6 “WCaney ch j. 7tea u4 The mysterious $1,360 of the | Junior class—how did it get | into the treasury?

" I selected teaching as a profes¬ sion because of the challenge of actually seeing students understand — the light bulb effect.” ”1 would like to see changes in the public educational system like more recognition of the individual as a success within himself, instead of being compared on the same basis.” — Jean K. Willard " I would like my students to gain an awareness and an appreciation of all living things regardless of form and a sense of responsibility and self-reliance.” " I believe that a teacher should have understanding, fairness, a knowledge of subject matter, con¬ sistency and a love for teaching to be a good teacher.” — Peter J. DiMarco ”1 would like to see parents and teachers de-emphasize the role of schools in motivating their children towards financial success and rec¬ ognize the school’s role of helping children achieve personal satisfac¬ tion of any type.” — William J.Fiske " I would like my students to gain a knowledge and appreciation of themselves and the world around them. Appreciation is most impor¬ tant, but one can’t always have that without some knowledge.” " Some students see the value of the course because they want to see it; others see none because I think they’ve talked themselves into be¬ lieving that most aspects of school have no value.” — Mary Carlson Everything science has taught me — and continues to teach me — strengthens by belief in the continu¬ ity of our spiritual existence after death. Nothing disappears without a trace. — Werner Von Braun Mr. Stevens After 37 years of teaching Mr. J. Murray Stevens is leaving Franklin High School. Those who were for¬ tunate enough to attend his classes, experienced his rare form of teach¬ ing, a mixture of diversity and continuity. Mr. Stevens’ love for his students was evident in his teaching. In Mr. Stevens’ own words, " It has been a rare privilege to have spent so much time with young people. I have nev¬ er entered a classroom without feel¬ ing this, and I have never left one without feeling I could have done better in my presentation or in rec¬ ognizing individual differences.” " In 37 years of teaching I find no change in the youth of today. Fun¬ damentally they are motivated in the same manner as they have al¬ ways been, have the same intellects and wills, and react to classroom stimulation with predictable res¬ ponses. The only perceptible differ¬ ence is that we, as adults, expect more from them as our society becomes more complex.” I have been fortunate in selecting science as my field. With it’s ever expanding discoveries one is guar¬ anteed to ' never be bored.’ In my ' out of school’ research laboratory work little talk is demanded — in the classroom it all discussion — a perfect balance!” " The close tie of science to the outside industrial real world does away with the protective school atmosphere. Administrators would do well in hiring teachers to consid¬ er as a requisite a few years of in¬ dustrial out of school experience. In this way the stiffling effect of sheer pedagogy would be eliminated.” " It has taken a long time for me to leave F.H.S. but what better class to graduate with than the class of ’73.” And the class of ’73 can find no better honor than to graduate with Mr. Stevens. I don’t think there is anything more important than conservation with the exception of human surviv¬ al and the two are so closely inter¬ laced that it is hard to separate one from the other.

" Nothing in education is so as¬ tonishing as the amount of igno¬ rance it accumulates in the form of inert facts.” — Henry Adams, " The Education of Henry Adams” No institution is perfect, includ¬ ing that of learning. The perfect in¬ stitution of learning is one which has no " inert facts” to accumulate, one in which everything we learn will help us to survive in the society in which we will live. The present institutions are not perfect; yet with each year they improve, and the inert facts” lessen. Our own institution of learning has especially lessened the igno¬ rance of all. The varied methods of teaching, and the different fields of learning give the student a better chance. There is still an " amount of igno¬ rance” acculumated, but each year it is decreasing. In the years to come, we shall discover whether or not the education we have received will support us in the society which we are about to enter.

A look at the expressions on the staffs’ faces more than shows how we feel about the man. At this meeting, Mr. D’Aniello told us that he hoped to campaign for a seat on the school committee. At the time this offered us little comfort at the thought of losing him as our principal; however, when elec¬ tions were held we were delighted when Mr. D’Aniello won a seat on the school commit¬ tee by a landslide. the school committee, in which our friend and benefactor, Mr. D’Aniello, was elected. We are very pleased with this and congratulate the voters on their wisdom. bob deLaubenfels We were highly pleased with the out¬ come of the town elections.

DUA, ic Mary Sullivan Bill Bonney Baccalaureate Service Class Night Class Prophecy Class Prophecy It’s the Franklin High School Reunion of 1983, and the alumni are beginning to gather. The ban¬ quet is being held in the storage closet of the Chateau de Ville, where the officers were able to get a great bargain, 36 dollars a couple. Speak¬ ing of the class officers, they finally finished collecting class dues and have applied for jobs with the Inter¬ nal Revenue Service. Debi Violandi, presently employed as a clothes designer for Barbi Dolls, is discuss¬ ing with Tom Cargill Tom Roy’s crusade to have the nude paintings in the Franklin Public Library clothed. Tom Cargill, the Medway librarian, agrees wholeheartedly with the plan, and the conversation continues until it is interrupted by Dick Walls who bursts into the room, in his track uniform, and announces that he has just broken the 11:00 in the 2-mile. He is con¬ gratulated by Richard O’Donnell, president of the cake mix company, whose slogan is " Make no mistake, Bake with Jake the Snake Cake. " And also by Charles Breen, who is very impressed and offers Dick a free introductory course at his school of modern dance. Mike Pe- tone, whose sports column " Troll on Sports” is syndicated nationally, is anxious to get the story, and is speaking with Dick when Leigh Mc- Stay, who has gone unnoticed up to this point, has accidently bumped in the nose with Bill Carlson’s knee. Bill, who makes his living posing for after-pictures in ads for elevator shoes, is apologizing to Leigh when Linda Cook comes over and asks if anyone would like to buy a year¬ book. Linda, along with Sally Catal- do, Cathy Cairns. Paul Caldararo, and Geri Behan planned the meal for the evening, which consists of salad, porker, and behans, roast rabbit, and cookie. David Holzwas- ( ser, award-winning author of " Cartesian Coordinates and You”, agrees to buy a yearbook, which is scheduled to be published some time in 1984. Dave’s career as an author has been so successful that he has found it necessary to consult the firm of MacDougal. McCarthy, McDermott, McDonald, McFarland, J McGann. McGuire, McHale, McNally, and Bolduc Tax Consultants. Also I it interested in their success is Fran Garboski, Head Nurse at the Rod Laver Maternity Hospital. Mean¬ while Bob DeLaubenfels, who has just returned from leading a Pygmy revolt in Africa, is discussing the world situation with Bill O ' Grady, star of the film " Billy Sings The Blues”. They are greeted by Joanne Brunelli, who has finally made Wimbleton. She can be seen scurry¬ ing back and forth across the courts, picking up the balls between points. The banquet is interruped by Debi Violandi who has taken the mike to announce that at midnight tonight, a great Franklin tradition is going to be broken, and Dave Mucci- arone is going to smile. After the shock waves from this announce¬ ment have subsided, Sylvia Smith and Barbara LeBlanc, co-publishers of Good Housekeeping Magazine, begin discussing the world of jour¬ nalism with Diane Fournaris, Literary Editor of Mad Magazine. On the other side of the room, David Mucciarone, Vincent Dubowski, and Patrick Murphy, Partners in the Mucc Sandy Surf Beachfront Reali¬ ty Co., are trying to sell Col. Eric Van Nortwick, some property on Jac- quilina Island in the pacific, neglect¬ ing mention to Eric, that it only rises above water once every leap year, on Robert E. Lee’s birthday. At this point interlude is provided by Lani Desaulniers, Clare Parmenter, Sally Cataldo. Joanne Brunelli, and Debi Violandi who now call themselves the PHD Folk Singers. Also provid¬ ing the entertainment was Mike Taddeo’s famous rock group, The Molten Pebbles, Paul Caldararo is running around taking drinks from everyone’s hand as part of his drive to reinstate prohibition. Kenny Gib¬ son, truant officer, is after Mike Reagan, who didn’t show up be¬ cause he was afraid there was going to be a test. As Ken is going out the door he passes Keith Perron, and Sue Salvucci, who are discussing one of Sal’s old teachers. " Can you believe it!”, says Keith. " Mr.Ferrari is still assigning the same home¬ work as he did years ago when we were in school!”, to which Sue re¬ plies, " If you hurry Keith, you still have time to get it in”. This com¬ ment draws a laugh from Tim Dav- ey, who has continued his hockey career, and is now water boy for the Framingham Junior peewees Hock¬ ey Team. Tim has been talking to Tom Lydon and Terry Malloy about their driving school. Their school is unique in that it has never had a graduate. Ray Burns is sleeping in the corner. When he’s awake, Ray recycles old jokes, for that sardonic master of hopeless humor, Mr. Sheehan. Ray is awakened by the flashbulb in Dave Cugno’s camera. Dave has been hired by the Marine Corps to shoot a series of enlist¬ ment posters, featuring Bruce Phil¬ lips. It seems they have given up on trying to find a few good men. For¬ tunately, the banquet is cut short because a bomb scare has been called in by Jim Carr who has gained fame as the leader of a rath¬ er subversive movement whose sole aim is to cut short class reunions. And as everyone is getting into their cars to leave, Jim Burns who is Ex¬ ecutive Vice-President of Star Mar¬ kets, in charge of cashiers hair-cuts, drives up. He looks around puzzled for a moment, and then says " Could one of you guys tell me where the F.H.S. reunion is being held?” RemtrnbQr ivhtn .., uov ujore peddle -pushei m I Ronnie Gaudet Jim Burns shouldn’t h fcs Bean?fte franklin HIGH SCHOOL. Graduation Happy graduation 1973!! Yes, America there is 240 more, real, live Franklin High students loose on your streets. Sorry, but we couldn’t stay there forever. As we looked around at graduation there were a few tear streaked faces tears of JOY! (believe it or not — a few people cried sadly, i heard) but most of us realized: to every thing there is a time and to us it was time go. We smilingly (and self-consciencely) climbed the stairs of the platform, shook somebody’s hand (who was that?), accepted a diplo¬ ma and dashed down the other stairs — Graduated!!

We would get jobs, go to school, or just veg, enjoying the last bit of " free¬ dom” before college. For the first time in four years we weren’t sepa¬ rated by the names of " jocks”, " Je- sue freaks”, " Hippies” (what is a hippie?), " cheerleaders”, or " Volks- gang”(?!).
