J stand Much off courage is and gaze at required t o a group ofpeo- iS£e labeled: «Graduation Class--1942” , To compose " their history demands more stamina On e feels almost as though he might be writing an obit¬ uary, an appropriate feeling, perhaps, since our career i class in school is over ., and it has beaa a signi- mt career. To us, that is. Our joys, hopes, woes, |failures, and successes have been suffered individually md en masse. We have come a long way since we entered Ischocl as timid and retiring freshmen. That year, Raymond Edwards asserted his authority and guided our tremulous feet into the mores of school life. Early we learned that study pays dividends, and that the pastures of upper-c-lassmen always look " greene We returned to classrooms in September as " Scphisti- Sophomores " and great was our joy in putting the fresh- Len through their paces. Again Raymond Edwards proved is aptitude at guidance, A period of assertion set in mind, our junior year was spectacular, fo r To our lit was then that we trod the " boards”, stained our hands rith " printer ink and Alyene Arrington directed ' our lass activities. Our Senior year dawned clear and bright. We knew now where we were going. Claude Beasley and. Johnny Gwyn proved to be efficient editor-in-chiefs of " Franklin Ri-Life " ,.Christine. Tones of " Franklin Memories " . Many seniors participated in the senior play. Kathleen Lewis presided over our class meetings, in the outer world affairs were taking a serious turn. December of our Senior year had seen our country at war. Engaged in a struggle to determine whether democracy will live, we vill " be called upon as indiyidu la to contribute our fforts. With resolute hearts and willing hands, we are ready to perpetuate our heritage I | j — 1 v.U- a r v S -T-v n ,A V;V W • ' c ' n.

TIME: September 16, 1950 SCENE: (The living-room in a bungalow near Franklin School, Toast, N. C. The room reveals itself to be furnished neat’y and attractively. Table near center of room, divan down left, and radio and chair up light.| Raymond enters from up right with a newspaper and „ brief-case in his hand. Evidently just home from work| he seats himself as Zula enters from left.) ZULA: (Coming toward Raymond) Hello, dear. Tired, I guess. What kind of day did you have? RAYMOND: Fine, honey, sold two more suites of furn¬ iture. ZULA: Goody: Nov , I can buy that hat I saw upstreet. RAYMOND: Well , I dunno; we got that frigidaire t pay for, end then t. n-r»e t s that reducing machine that we e paying the last installment on. How long ' till supper r ' ZULA: Oh, about an hour. You T ll have plenty of time to read the paper, and Junior hasn ' t come in from school yet; suppose he stopped next door to play. RAYMOND: Beats anything I ever heard of...Now, when I was his age, I chopped wood, milked the cow, and on top of tnat drove a school bus, all be¬ fore supper. And, let me tell you, I didn t N B ■ZZZTi ' Eg r- 5 525? 7 4 take any time out.... (Telephone rings: RAYMOND stops his harangue to an¬ swer it’. Following contfehshtion with intervals for other party to make answers. " Hellol Why, you old son of a gun, where’d you come from? I should say sol Come around to supper. Expect you in ten min¬ utes.”) RAYMOND: (Coming down stage, rubbing his hands jubi-| lantly) Guess who that was? Carroll Wagoner, remember he was in school with us, and later went in for flying. They say he’s an executive of a big air-plane corporation and he has to travel all over the country on various dr ties . He’s passing through, and I invited him for supper. ZTJLA Good, I certainly will be glad to see him. It’s been such a time. I’d better rush back and tell Alice to set an extra plate. (ZULA goes out, and Raymond continues to read paper until Carroll rushes in from the right.) RAYMOND: (jumps up and greets Carroll enthusiast¬ ically) Carroll, you old dog!!I How in the wo rid are v on? CARROLL: Oh, fine, never expected to find you sottl-| ed down, though. ’Who’s the lucky woman? RAYMOND: Zulu Sumner finally landed me...She’ll be overjoyed to see you. I’ll call her. Lula l ( ZULA enters from left. She and Carroll greet.each-| other cordially. Conversation can bo ”ab-lib” in this scene, ZULA goes out left. ) CARROLL: What happened to your other girl friends, Raymond? You know you were the biggest flirt in our class. Certainly does surprise me, see| ing you calm down like this, RAYMOND: Oh well, every dog has its day...and I guess I’ve had mine. Let’s see. There’s Irene Harris. Married a millionaire who died and left her a fortune, which suits Irene just fine. She’ll have plenty of money the rest of her life, if she doesn’t buy a hat every day or two as Zulu does. CARROLL: And Lois Brinkley? RAYMOND: Oh, she married Roland Nichols, who’s a crack photographer for Life Magazine. Certain ly would hate to be in his shoes. Every time he takes a picture of a pretty girl he gets a rolling pin bounced off his bean. - ■r—=y?77. CARROLL: Tough life, L imagine...and your other vic¬ tims of Franklin days? RAYMOND: Helen Payne and Lola Bowman are Rod Cross nurses, but they talk so much, they’ll probabl; get thrown out of tilt organization. Kathleen Lewis and Dorothy Nichols are stars in Tommy Gwyn’s ’ One-Hundred and Twenty Girl Veud Y ' ilie’| -- c, popular road show. Rena Leonard lives in South Carolina with her second husband. They say she talked her first to death. CARROLL: She hasn’t changed much, then. That reminds| me. What happened to James Lewis? RAYMOND: He’s still the big talker. He served his time in the army, and is running for chief- of-police now. What about Josie Willard? She could talk ! CARROLL; She and Jurmaine Golding? I should say so, couldn’t sit still two seconds. But they cer¬ tainly have changed. They were stenogs for a manufacturing firm in Boston and decided to quit to organize ’’The Green Hill Institute For Old Maids”. They make two of the finest old maids, you ever sew. And remember Joyce Cooke? She’s head dietician at Hospital in New York City. How RAYMOND: Didn’t think she could stand still long enough to cook. CARROLL: People change, though. There’s Cleo Fulk, the GLAMOUR GIRL of Hollywood stars...and speaking of Hollywood. Did you know that Jack Johnson and Haywood Weddle are movie producers--specializing in ’’bloody murder” pictures in which each person gets killed ex- Mount Sinai about that? g cept the villian who happens to be Edward Shelton. ”Two-gun Pete” is his movie name. RAYMOND: You know how Jack and IL.ywood used. to attend ’’bloody” pictures, but Edward is a surprise. CARROLL: Yc u never can tell. Still waters run deep. Take Christine Jones, lor example. She s the first woman to represent North Carolina, in the House of Representatives. Reid Simmons has done his best to talk her into marrying him. He’s even followed her to Washington, where he’s founded a school to train pages for the Senate in order that he- might be . near .her. Incidentally, Mae Moser and minnia Smith ra night club in Washington. nl ney were running aaking money until the m :;V hired Edwin Lineback qs ”bounco-r”, new oil the pr -fit which doesn’ t! go to buy furs pays for Edwin’s hospital bill.. What became of Faye Kingsberry? She’s still around here,, isn’t she? RAYMOND: Sure. Jimmy says she can bake the best cherry pie in the state. They have two child-| ren. ..spoiled to death ’ ' Bout as mischievous as Henry Allred used to be. By the way, what ever became of Henry? CARROLL: That lazy rascal! Why, he’s an inventor— a machine which will fe-e bin ' without having to move is his latest. Johnny Gwyn sells it, and the two make so such money it takes ’em two months to figure out their income tax. W r alker Shelton, come to think of it, is a fa¬ mous physican. He specializes in ’’nervous cases” and likes especially his women pa¬ tients. Elizabeth Cox is his office nurse. RAYMOND: I suppose she looks out for the men. CARROLL: Typical, to say the least. As for the Golding sisters, they’ve founded a Dramatic School. Betty is making it a success, while Eula Rose is the toast of two continents. Omie Key©, on the other hand, finally went in for opera. Can you feature that? RAYMOND: She got plenty of practice—yelling across the room at school. What about Claude Beasley Y u know we expected big things from Claude. Newspaper work, T bet. CARROLL: Y u hit. the noil on the head. Claude’s night reporter on the ”T e Chicago Daily News”. Ho won a lot of recognition about two months ago when he scooped the news on William Wagoner’s fourth marriage... and William’s latest victim is NONE OTHER then SHIRLEY TEI TIE! ! RAYMOND: He always did go in for her pictures when they came to I.luno .airy But this getting married four times (AULA’S VOICE off-stage: ’’Raymond, go sgo if you can lind Junior. 1-on t come in from school, yet. Hurry back, so you can start a fire in the furnace, and maybe you d better stop next door .aid borrow their lc..wn-mower ou y can cut the grass tomorrOW.”) u Get married feu times?? 4 ?
