The school day also developed high goals for many students. Each student strived to receive good grades and improve his vary- ing interests. The student body also had fun in their events. Two of the dances were very worth- while. Money was raised by the students for the football team and a needy family. Altogether, this year at Franklin Junior High has allowed the students to broaden their knowledge and to improve and learn new skills. Students Work Hard But Have Fun All Latin students were required to make a Latin project in the fall this year. Pictured here are students who made an A plus on their projects. Here Mr. Myers points out certain places on a map to several of his students. At this time the class was studying the midwestern states. This year all eighth and ninth grade students had to do a science project. These are just some of the students who turned in a project.

Franklin ' s secretaries, Mrs. Evelyn Pelz and Mrs. Eileen Werling, are kept very busy doing many and varied tasks. They are never too busy, however, to help students and teachers with their problems. Secretaries, Cooks, Custodians Work Hard We have LaVern Evans, Ruth Brennan, Elsie Ecen- barger, Esther Helmke, Helen Henry, Virginia Hop- per, Hilda Harmeyer and Alma Uetrecht to thank for our delicious and nourishing meals. Every day they plan luncheons for about 900 people which in- clude teachers and pupils. Preparing food for this many people is certainly not a small job. d " i -% M SL Jf •i L I L Q 1 " m . .

They played good hard ball and their spirit was as high as some of their scores. This year ' s Franklin Chiefs rolled to an impressive 4-1-1 record. The team won the last four games of the season to become the first varsity team in Franklin ' s football his- tory to win four games in one season. They worked hard every night during the school week and played pad-cracking games. The team finished third in the city league and missed a shot at the championship by only one-half game. They played and practiced in rain, snow, and mud, and yet no one complained as the team spirit remained at razor edge through out the entire season.

They had tremendous spirit and each man gave everything he had. 10 TT s ' ( ie Franklin Cross Country is fast becoming the ost feared squad in Fort Wayne as, for three years a row, they have never been defeated in the city championship. Then spirits were high as they broke several school records to whisk past their opponents on courses all across the city. ream Wins Third Championship Title eah! Rah! Chiefs! This was the familiar sound t the varsity basketball games as the Booster Club d by the cheerleaders, urged the team to victory. This year ' s Franklin Cross Country team has kept up what is fast becoming a school tradition, winning the city title. This group of fleet-footed young men burned up the city courses in achieving a near perfect 5 and 1 record. Anyone present at any of the basketball games will vouch to the vocal power of the Booster Club, headed by Mr. Sawyer. He is in his first year at Franklin and has done an outstanding job with this large club.

They worked nightly with Coach Riley practicing skills and tech- niques to improve their game. Each member of the team contributed his own athletic abilities, account- ing for their great success. Varsity Chiefs Have Very Successful Year The varsity Chiefs are shown playing one of their exciting season games which led them to their very successful season of 12 wins and 2 losses. This was one of the best basketball sea- sons anyone at Franklin can remember and was the first tournament championship any- one can remember winning. It was a thrilling moment for the team when they received that shining trophy. It is one moment they will not soon forget. But all of these victories were not given to the team ; they were paid for with sweat, work, and sacrifice by the following boys: Bill Schumaker, John Savio, Mike Bush, Dave Boggs, Mike Keller, Dan Bourne, Rick Wells, Dave Hoffer, Kent Wolfe, Richard Waikel, Willard Dahl, and Dave Burns. They were coached by Mr. Riley, who is one of the finest coaches in Fort Wayne. He was the force responsible for the tremendous team spirit and unity so necessary for a championship team. No one will soon forget the fine, clean brand of basketball played by this team and the spirit that followed everyone of them wherever they went. 12 Eighth Grade Chiefs Build Skills For Next Year ' hese seventh and eighth grade boys fought hard his year. They tried very hard and with great pirit to improve their game but could not obtain many victories. Mr. Ault and Mr. Sawyer worked hard with these Chiefs helping them in learning new techniques. ' he eighth grade football and basketball earns were coached by Mr. Ault. The teams an into some bad luck but their spirit never Iwindled as they practiced and played with iverything they had. They received tremendous support from aany enthusiastic fans who appreciated the hard work and mental strain the team went through. Perhaps next year their luck will change and they will repeat the fine performance of this year ' s varsity Chiefs. They have the spirit ; they have the skill ; and they have the support. fhe boys comprising the seventh and eighth grade ' ootball teams fought very hard in all their games, fhey all worked especially hard in practice after school to improve their game and techniques. Team spirit and hard work were two of their biggest assets. 13 Cheerleaders Cheer Teams To Victory I f t w J k -J . The eighth grade cheerleaders practice every Fri- day night to improve their skills and to learn new cheers. V-I-C-T-O-R-Y is a familiar cry heard by the cheerleaders at each of the home games. The cheerleaders this year were chosen by some of the faculty members. They had a very hard decision to make among all the girls that tried out. However, the girls that were chosen were very thrilled and definitely proved to be very worthy of the teacher ' s choice. As soon as the cheerleaders were chos- en, they began their long hours of practice. They were also very busy ordering their equipment needed for cheerleading. Credit The varsity cheerleaders have cheered this year for the football team and the victorious basketball team. The seventh grade cheerleaders help in leading the students at the eighth and ninth games. should definitely be given to their sponsor, Mrs. Shaw, who helped the girls in any way she could. This year ' s varsity cheerleaders are Sher- ry Harter, Linda Meredith, Connie Archer, Linda Lees, Sally Shepler, and Sue McAtee, serving as captain. Jeanine Neuman, Jonie Franken, Becky Glock, Betsy Wilson, Rox- anne Day and Susie Pitser, who was elected as captain by the eighth grade cheerleaders. The seventh grade cheerleaders include Shar- man Harter, Sue Stone, Cindy Lehrman and Sandy Fick. The cheerleaders have led pep sessions and helped build the enthusiasm of the cheering crowd. The eighth grade boys improve their skills and worked on seasonal sports during the year. These ninth graders put to use their skills and abilities gained by their former two years. Boys Learn Fundamentals oi Sports Physical fitness and sportsmanship are concentrated on greatly in boys ' intramurals. The three grades meet on various nights of the week to play such sports as basketball, football, wrestling, bowling, volleyball, and weight lifting. Each group has about 12 to 20 boys. The boys learn how to work with one an- other in achieving athletic success. They learn the fundamentals and techniques of the various sports. The boys develop their bodies in some of these sports and physical fitness exercises. The coaches of the dif- ferent grades include seventh, Mr. Ault; eighth grade, Mr. Overmeyer; ninth, Mr. Riley. These coaches pay particular attention to the teaching of clean play and good sports- manship. They also teach the fundamentals of sports. The seventh graders learned basic skills and sports- manship necessary for athletics. 15 Sportsmanship Stressed In G.A.A. Activities Eighth grade G.A.A. members enjoy a variety of sports including basketball, volleyball, and soccer. The seventh grade members of the G.A.A. learn many different sports and the importance of good sportsmanship. The Girls ' Athletic Association provides a variety of sports for girls in the seventh, eighth, and ninth grades. Seventh graders learn new sports they have never had before and meet new friends in doing so. They look forward to the time when they reach ninth grade and can participate in competitive sports as ninth grade members. All the mem- bers, seventh, eighth, and ninth graders, learn the importance of good sportsmanship and also how to make good team effort. If girls are good enough they may be asked to referee certain games such as basketball or soccer. All the girls, however, learn the rules of the different sports. Miss Miller and Mrs. Schone instruct these meetings. Girls in the ninth grade G.A.A. enjoy competing against other schools in many different sports such as basketball and track and field. The girls always have good sportsmanship when playing against other schools. ctivities People on the circulation staff worked very hard organizing the campaign so that many books could be sold. They were very busy recording sales. Each member of the yearbook staff must do his part to have a good yearbook, and the members of the 1965 Kite ' n Key staff have done just that. Kite ' n Key Staff Works Very Hard The 1965 Kite ' n Key staff has worked many long hard hours on the yearbook. There were many deadlines which they felt could never be met on time, but somehow they always made them. But as the staff looks back on the production of the book, they realize that it was a real opportunity to prepare the book and that there were really many enjoyable experiences. The staff also learned how to work together. There are many things a staff must do in putting a yearbook together. One of the first things that the staff had to do was choose a theme and a cover idea. Themes and cover designs were discussed by the editors who then presented them before the entire staff bo ideas could be voted upon. Then work in circulation, art, sports, activities, and copy sections began. Each member of the staff was assigned a certain position. The advisor this year was Mrs. Lawrence. The editors look over the different parts of the yearbook to make certain everything is in order. 18 Post Staff Works Long Hours On Issues These are the members of the Post staff who have done all of the work that goes into putting out a very good newspaper. The various editors of the Post are the people who organize the production of the paper. They then dis- tributed the work to the staff. The Post Staff has worked very hard this year putting cut their four page newspaper. The staff met on Tuesday of each week un- der the supervision of Mrs. Lawrence. She directed the staff and helped the new mem- bers with their grammar, punctuation and writing style. All of this was a good experi- ence for the members and resulted in a good paper. Staff members could be seen in the halls with pencils and paper ready to conduct an opinion poll or interview a teacher or student teacher about his various experiences. Other members of the staff counted headlines and pasted galleys on the make-up sheets which were then sent to the printer. The last pro- cedure in the production of the paper was the folding of hundreds of papers. The paper was distributed on the fourth Wednesday of the month. l %%if Ifc V ,: ...

All the members of the council took as part of their responsibilty the setting of standards for dress and behavior. The purpose of the student council is to give a better relation- ship between students and teachers. The members asked advice and passed on the feelings of the student body. Members served as chairmen or as mem- bers of various committees appointed by the officers to work on various projects through- out the year. The council worked on the constitution which will be put to use in the years to come for the student body. Two peo- ple that worked very hard to make the stu- dent council worth while were Miss Shaner and Mr. Mathias. The council instituted a new project this year which was the selection of a citizen of the month. Each classroom had a citizen of the month box where the students could put their votes for the person that they felt was worthy. The officers of this year ' s student council discuss the approaching meeting of the student council for which many plans must be made. These are the hard working students who were cho- sen to represent the other members of their home- rooms at weekly student council meetings. Part of representative responsibility was to report to his class the new and old business that was discussed at the meeting. rhe members of the Library Club work very hard in he school library.

Students Develop Skills, Operate Equipment The members of the Library Club learn the work that goes into the operation of the library. They work before and after school helping Mrs. Anderson, their sponsor, in any way that they can. One of their jobs is repairing and shelving books.

They have done such things as attend city wide parties and help out at the Christ Child ' s Festival. The Future Teacher Association does not have a large membership this year, but they have just recently received their charter in hope that this may help to increase their membership. They have been seeing profes- sional teaching films and gaining much knowledge in the field of teaching. The club is mainly for those students who feel they may be interested in becoming teachers , and the members are given a chance to come very close to teaching. 22 Students Act, Draw and Stage The Dramatics Club members have had a great deal of fun this year reading and re- hearsing several one act plays, under the supervision of their sponsor Mr. Stuart. Toward the end of the year they spent many hours working on one particular one act play. This play was given to the students and the P.T.A. The Art Club members spent an enjoyable lour once a week.

Their future plans are to display their collections in the showcase. Their advisor is Mr. Wilier. Under the direction of Mr. Hines the Chess Club meets every other Tuesday. They work on the art of playing chess. Many of the members did not know how to play chess at 1 the first of the year but by the end of the year they had learned very well. Mrs. Bauman directs the Knitting Club. The girls learn the various steps involved in knitting different items. Some of the girls knitted sweaters and house slippers.

This group practiced every other day. This group, under the direction of Mr. Hopkins, has many functions of our school this year. Franklin has taken great pride in its various instru- mental group, particularly the band. 26 Musicians Who Present Excellent Programs The Chief band purpose is to perform at the basket- ball games. The members of this band enjoy playing in this group. They feel that they are doing their share in supporting their team. lent music was heard at basketball games, assem- blies, and concerts. Many of the Franklin students are mem- bers of the three musical groups pictured on this page: The band, the orchestra and the Chief band. Each of these groups plays for the different events that the school has. The student body, along with the faculty and parents of Franklin, greatly appreciate their activities which add a large measure of enjoyment to programs at Franklin. The members of the instrumental groups are not required to take private lessons, but many of them do take time after school to take lessons. In this way, they become more accomplished musicians which aids them as instrumentalists and also improves the qual- ity of the music of the band. A great deal of credit should be given to the director of these three organizations, Mr. Hopkins. He spends many hours ar- ranging music, giving lessons and practicing with the groups. 27 Chorus Entertains at School Programs The seventh and eighth grade chorus members en- joy singing and trying new music. This group is not really large but each member contributes his talent. Throughout the past school year, the Franklin chorus has presented many very interesting programs. The chorus is com- posed of eighth and ninth grade students. The director of the chorus, Miss Fleming, has spent many long hours selecting music that would please students, teachers and par- ents. The chorus meets to practice every other day in the regular school day. However, when the chorus was getting ready for the Thanks- giving and Christmas programs ,they came to school early so that they could have more practice time. This extra time spent certainly showed up in their excellent performances. The seventh and eighth grade chorus also under the direction of Miss Fleming has been busy this year. They have selected inter- esting songs to sing for their enjoyment. This group also performed at the Christmas program and did an excellent job. This group meets every week. Some of them sing for enjoyment while others are preparing for the ninth grade chorus. The Chorus has worked hard this year in preparing and presenting programs for the school. The present ninth grade students will miss presenting programs to the student body next year. They have had good experiences in performing before groups with this year ' s program of school musical programs. - [he Dance Band is a new group that has been Drmed this year.

Assem- blies, dances, sports, and other events have all contributed to making the year more exciting and interesting. Throughout the school year teachers and students have worked to improve grades, school spirit and attitudes. Along with work, there has been plenty of fun in classes and in after school activities. Our principal, Mr. Plasket, and staff assistant, Mr. Mathias, have worked very hard with faculty members and stu- dents to make the 1964-65 year at Franklin more worthwhile. Also, custodians have kept our school clean, cooks have cooked our meals, and secretaries have operated our office efficiently. Therefore, each person in his own way has contributed to making Franklin a great school. The bell has just rung and now this girl must decide what books to take home. Another Day Ends At Franklin A long difficult day is over and it ' s time to close the door until tomorrow. The work day has just begun for Mr. Polley. He must get the school ready for another day. 56 672 ”
