Young people, look to the future! Can you picture your-
self fifty years from now, looking backward to appraise the
true wealth of the life you have lived? What would you like
to see spelled out in the history of your own life?
Would you evaluate your life on the basis of the number
of dollars you had taken in, or perhaps the number you had
been able to retain? Would you set some other material cri-
terion, such as jewelry, furs, or other luxuries? Would your
goal have been to create new ideas or new products to add
to the convenience or comfort of your neighbors? Would the
actual construction of buildings, appliances, or machines
have been your contribution? Would you gain your satisfac-
tion from raising a farrrily by good Christian principles?
Our principal, Walter J. Reseburg, now stands at this
crossroads. He is a man young in spirit and rich in experi-
ence. He has many vital and useful years ahead of him. Let
us take a quick look at the accomplishment of his career. We
see 45 years of dedicated service to Franklin High Schoolg
over 20,000 students have been influenced by his philosophyg
people in all walks of life have become more valuable citi-
zens because of himg he has been genuinely beloved by all
who have known himg he has made this world a more beau-
tiful and pleasant place in which to live.
You young people are just now deciding the course of
your life. Surely the satisfactions that accrue during a life-
time are adequate reward for the extra effort you must now
make in order to achieve these things.

TO A GREAT MAN
We, here at Franklin High School, are proud to dedicate this 44th edition
of Tolo Annual to our beloved principal, Mr. Walter J. Reseburg.
By giving himself untiringly in the capacities of teacher, coach, counselor,
vice-principal, principal, and friend for more than 45 years, he has guided us and
many other students in our pursuit of high ideals.
His never-ending drive for good sportsmanship, high scholastic standards, and
enthusiasm for worthwhile things have been an inspiration to many thousands
of students who have passed through the halls of Franklin.
As Mr. Reseburg "graduates" with the Class of 1958, he leaves behind him
a Bellamy Award school which was so honored because of his hard work and his
fine examples of democracy and fair play. Just as in the heart of Mr. Reseburg
there can never be another school, so will Franklin never be able to replace him.
We shall always remember his great love for athletics of all kinds. Our school
spirit has been only a mirrored image of Mr. Reseburg's spirit.
The school is experiencing a great loss and is grateful for his guidance. Ben
Franklin would be proud of our Mr. Reseburg.

CDUR PRINCIPAL SPEAKS
Graduation time again! This year I made it. After forty-
six short years I can finally consider myself a Franklin
I first entered our beautiful building in the year 1912.
Everyone has always been so kind and considerate so I just
stayed on and on.
I can truthfully say that Franklin has always been a
friendly school. Over the years we have built certain definite
opinions into our philosophy. We have established an en-
vironment in which all may experience maximum democratic
living. We have every freedom, and the large majority of our
people feel personally responsible not to abuse these privi-
leges. We place limitations on no one and believe wherever
desire and industry prevail, happy and effective lives will
follow. We subscribe to the principle of self-evaluation and
self-discipline and honest desire to improve in scholarship
and human relations.
The large majority of our teachers are dedicated to the
youth of our country. The objective uppermost in their
thinking is to build honest, hard-working, cooperative and
loyal American citizens.
Meeting so many wonderful parents, teachers, graduates
and pupils has been a rare privilege and a happy experience.
Now that I am leaving this warm place for the "outer space"
of retirement from teaching I wish to tell you that I shall
always remember Franklin with love and sincere affection.
May you live long and prosper.
W. J. RESEBURG
