reserves, were Earl Lansdale, Boh Ahrams, Don Haines,
Eldon Matthews, Tom Kennedy, Eugene Leonard, Paul
Harrison, Eugene Adams, Bill Hannum, Don Ivloore,

lecting the Little Six trophy next year.
In the act ot' service, the Sophomores got the dirty
part of the deal. At the haskethall games they sold
candy and ice cream, cleaning up after the games,
while the others went to parties or home. The money
they received goes to the treasury to help pay for the
junior and Senior Prom and hanquet next year.
The Sophomores are looking forward to the years
they have ahead of them to help their Alma Mzlter,
Franklin High School, in as many ways as they can.

Future Teacherfs Club . .
The FarrelfMcGuHfey Chapter of the Future Teach'
ers of America was started not only to interest students
in the teaching profession but to foster student leader'
The club meetings are held during the noon hour
so that there is a free room in which to meet. In these
meetings the members hear talks on teachers and teach'
ing from fellow students and faculty members. So far,
they have had Mr. Fealy, Mr. Augspurger, Mrs. Farrell,
and Miss McClure speak at meetings.
The annual Future Teachers assembly was held on
January 22, with club members assisting. The purpose
of the club was explained to the student body, and some
questions which might be puzzling the nonfrnembers
were answered in a forum. The past, present, and
prospective future of the club were then given. The
program was planned by a program committee and
Miss Mable Liles, the club faculty sponsor.
The club initiated twenty new members on Februf
ary 10. The initiation was held during the regular
noon meeting and was the formal initiation used by all
Future Teachers Clubs. The club now has 46 members,
14 of the members being seniors.
The club has helped out by supplying members to
take classes as substitute teachers and by supplying
ushers and guides for open house and P.T.A.
The hall monitor duties this year were maintained
by members of the Future Teachers Club.

esting discussion concerning the HifY platform-clean
speech, clean sportsmanship, clean living, clean scholar'
ship. One of the feature highlights involving the Hi'Y

The Junior Classical League of Franklin High is
part of a nationfwide organization. The Franklin
chapter was organized in 1944 under the direction of

one with the value of Greek and Roman civilization to
this age. lt helps to provide an interest in Latin for
the students by acquainting them with the Roman
food, clothes, and activities.
While there is only one Latin Club, two Latin
classes are organized separately, each having elected
officers. The ofhcers of the Latin II class served as
officers for the whole organization. These ofiicers
were as follows: Bill Hannum, president, Marilyn Rutf
ledge, vice-president, Janet Klaber, secretary, Laura

Visual Aid . .
Thirtyfsix boys comprise the staff of
the visual education system. They are
on call eight periods a day, including
lunch period, directly after school, and
at night. This group as a reward for
their service to their school, does not
have parties or picnics, does not have
a special assembly, does not get invited
to the honor banquet, does not get pins,
metals or badges to wear with pride for
their service. They sometimes get dis'
ivisted glances l'Ci?lUS6 the voice of ref
production is not clear, the image is
llurred, or flutters due mostly to faulty
equipment, rather than an insufficient
knowledge of the equipment. Their only
reward for this service, which not only
means school time, but after school, is
not oifered by one organization. Their
only reward is the selffsatisfaction of
having the audience tolerate mechanical
disabilities and receive a pleasant smile

The highfstepping Franklin High School band of
'47f'48, under the direction of Charles Toms, consists
of sixty members. The band displayed brilliant talent
in performances at the football games. Along with the
football shows, the band had a full program consisting
of parades, pepfmeetings, and concert. As soon as
school begins the band starts its marching, Their first
parade is at the Wzirreii County Fair in September.
Later in the year there are parades held on Halloween,
'KI Am An American Day," and Memorial Day. Sum'
mer concerts are held annually at Harmon Field and
Chautauqua. The band's winter concert is held in the
high school auditorium. Here the band has an oppor-
tunity to display its concert ability. Une of the bancl's
social events each year is the "Band Party," which all
band members may attend. The annual O.M.E.A.
contest at Miami University is perhaps the greatest
event of the year.

Under the tutelage of John Born for the second
year, the Franklin High School Footballers won three,
lost four, and tied one. They stood second in the
Little Six standings, being nosed out by the Osborn
Flyers by one point. Two seniors, the eo-captains, Al
Roberson and Earnie Philpot, represented Franklin on
the Little Six first team, while Richard Shockley, Mar-
vin Shane, and Bruce Barlett were members of the
The Blue Lions of Washington C. H. opened the
'47 season for the Wildcats and after a scoreless first
half, the powerful Lions punched over three touch-
downs to win I8-O. Smith, Blue halfback, racked up
two tallies for the Lions.
Continuing their dominance of Franklin gridders,
the Miamisburg Vikings tore the Cats apart, winning
19-0. Franklin, outplayed completely, was never in
the game. The "Burghers" scored with less than two
minutes gone and completely routed the Cats.
The Wildcats then lost their third contest to the
Monroe Hornets. Monroe, led by Trimble, completely
nullified the Cats' offense, The Red and Black defense
again led for three quarters, but with the aid of two
breaks, Monroe went over twice. Berry, Monroe
guard, added the point as Monroe won 13-O.
Going into their Homecoming game with O. S. and
S. C.. the Cats were dubbed the "Scoreless Wonders."
The short-punt formation, however, proved the Cadets'
undoing as Franklin, headed by fullback Roberson, un-
leashed a powerful ground attack to crush the Cadets
19-O. Shane, Roberson, and Wilson scored with Phil-
pot adding the point.
Still victory-hungry, the Cats stunned the Butler
airmen by tallying 20 markers in the opening minutes
of the game. Held scoreless in the first half, Butler
roared back, scoring a touchdown, extra point, and a
safety. But Buckley iced the game with another touch-
down for Franklin.
journeying to Osborn for their next fracas, the Red
and Black was the victim of many so-called bad breaks
in a rough 14-13 loss. Completely outplaying the
Flyers, the Cats completed nine aerials and totaled 270
yards for 18 first downs only to lose. The vaunted
Osborn attack was stopped cold as the Flyers were
held to a. O yard total including four first downs and
no pass completions. Roberson and Buckley went over
for Franklin as Shockley swept the end for the extra
The following week, a sluggish Franklin team was
almost upset by the roaring Warriors of Lebanon. Led
by Fordyce, their allfleague fullback, the Warriors
knotted the count late in the closing minutes after
Shockley had raced 20 yards to score for the Cats.
Neither point was good, and the game ended in a 6f6
The Northridge Polar Bears were next on the dock'
et for the Revengeful Cats. Franklin, in full force,
trounced the Ridgers soundly. Scoring in every canto,
the Wildcat running attack of Shockley, Shane, and
Roberson, and the passing of Logsdon was unstoppable.
Time and again the Wildcat line broke through to stop
the Ridger backs for great losses. 'Twas a big night
In a game reminiscent of the previous year's conf
test, the Greenfield Tigers overcame a twoftouchdown
dehcit to win by a onefpoint margin. Shane ond Rober'
son scored early as Philpot's kick made it l3'0 at the
quarter. Then during the second half, the Cats fell
apart and the Greenfield backs took advantage of this
as they blasted great holes in the Red and Black line.
The contest ended in a l4f13 loss for Franklin.

Little Six Champs
Winning their first Little Six basketball champion'
ship since 1936, the Franklin High basketball team had
the excellent record of thirteen wins against three losses.
Opening the season with the Mason Comets, Frankf
lin started slowly and, with Philpot leading the way,
won handsfdown over Mason. The score was 49f24.
On December 5, after decisive victories over
NVaynesville and Kiser, Franklin tackled the "Mighty
Middies of Middletown." Franklin displayed excep'
tional teamwork in garnering the majority of the ref
bounds oil both bankboards. The giant Middies were
somewhat befuddled in the first three periods as Frank'
lin led 1743 at halftime, In the last quarter, however,
the superior height of Middletown showed itself. Led
by Grimes, the Purple forged ahead, winning 4463.
After trouncing West Chester, Franklin then lost
to Dayton Roosevelt in an unusually rough game. Then
came a nvefgame winning streak which was highlighted
by a 6432 decision over the defending league champs,
Northridge. Coming from behind, the Cats scored 39
points in the last half to win easily over the Ridgers.
The Monroe Hornets abruptly halted the Franklin
cagers' winning streak at five as they pounded out a
From this point on the Wildcats were invincible.
In their next contest with Osborn they gained revenge
for the one point football defeat by trouncing the
born five 32'29. This contest was very close and
Cats inflicted the first league defeat to the Flyers.
Brushing past Miamisburg and the O. S. Es' S.
Home, the Wildcats came to their ancient rivals,
Warriors of Lebanon. The Warriors by this time
developed into a power in the Little Six.
Franklin opened fast and was leading 9f7 at
cnd of the iirst quarter. Lebanon tied it up, but
"championship hungry" Franklin boys rallied to
ahead 2345 at the half.
Franklin 49, Mason 24
From that point on the Warriors were lost. Frank-
lin's attack went relentlessly on to the ultimate and
fitting end, a 41'26 win and the Little Six Basketball
Allen, Shockley, Hathaway, Hubbard, and Philpot
wcrc the usual starters with Didriksen as sixth man.
They were ably backed by Bill McCabe, Wayne
Stewart, Eugene Glossip, and Lloyd Logsdon.
Philpot, Hubbard, and Allen formed the usual scor-
ing punch but Shockley and Hathaway were superb on
iloorfwork and that saved many close games.

The Reserve squad, following in the footsteps of
the varsity, ran rough shod over their schedule of tough
opponents. They compiled a record of 13 wins against
3 defeats, the setbacks coming from Middletown, Os'
born, and Monroe.
The starting quintet was completely comprised of
sophomores and these boys looked extremely promisf
ing. Some gained varsity experience this year.

setbacks. This was john Born's first year at the helm
of the Wildcat nine. The Wildcat hill staff was
plagued all year by sore arms.
Opening the campaign with six returning letter'
men from the previous year's winless squad, the Born'
men almost tripped Middletown as they went ten inf

During the remainder of the season, the Wildcats
proceeded to drop three succeding games before pastf
ing Vandalia Butler 68.
The complete starting lineup was composed of
