RICHARDS This semester the Scholarship Society has under- taken the project of better citizenship. Moving pic- tures are being made with the new school camera. Some of the pictures which are being filmed include cafeteria conduct, hall order and school ground be- havior. All of these pictures stress courtesy and safety, and should help improve Franklin citizenship. The entire plan was suggested to the society by Mrs. Price, the Vice Principal, who has appointed several teachers to cooperate in the plan. Ground action will be super- vised by Mr. VVertz and Miss Clark. Costumes are to be provided by Miss Morrison and Miss Ringheim. Mr. Deaver, who wrote the script, also is acting as cameraman and Miss Burns is collaborating with Mr. Deaver in preparing the scenario. All pantomime scenes are directed by Miss Walker. The following students are in the Society: 7A-Lou Jean Barlow, Darlene Benson, Joyce Buchanan, Vir- ginia Clevenger, Betty Goosen, Patsy Green, Geraldine Hoy, Len- nice Hubenbecker, Marilyn McClure, Leona Murry, Edda May Trostler, Marilynn Whitaker, Irene Wickliffe, Joanna Worsham.

WHITNACK In the minds of those who are closely associated with the orchestras, there is a doubt whether or not the Junior Orchestra receives due credit. The reason for such a doubt is easy to see when we realize that although the Junior Orchestra makes fewer appearances than the Senior Orchestra, it affords an opportunity for the musicians to prepare themselves for Senior Orchesetra. It gives them needed experience and confidence to become efhcient in the advanced work in Senior Orchestra.

The most popular games were paddle tennis, shuHieboard, deck tennis, and tether ball. We have found that with twelve games, more girls come out to playground thanlif there is just one game. The second nine weeks we had baseball and we had a few of the paddle tennis courts, deck tennis, shuHieboard, and other balls in use so if some of the girls wanted to earn their playground points and did not like baseball they could play one of the other four games.

Flashes of color, Spangled costumes, and dancing feet, marked the date of our Mexican FiestaeffEl ,Cinco de Mayou ffifth day of Mayi. What H0! Who goes there?

We were honored on May 26, 1939, for it was perhaps the biggest day in the year for Franklin Junior High School. In a beautiful ceremony, the Womenls Auxiliary of the Foreign Legion presented the American Hag to our school; and at the same assembly a new banner was given as a gift to Franklin from the Parent-Teachers Association. They came and got it on May 25, 1939. All the Official and Coach Club members got ham and eggSeif they got up 1n time for the breakfast they had in the patio.

Historian Chief Sergeant Monitors Director Accompanist The Junior Girlsi Glee was organized to help prepare girls for Senior Glee. This is not the only service it gives, for the girls take part in many programs. To be taken into Junior Glee one must have a good voice, good citizenship, and a high stand- ing in scholarship in other classes. Usually a girl is admitted into Senior Glee after two semesters in Junior Glee. However, if a student has done outstanding work and is needed in Senior Glee she is admitted after one semester.
