They work in reading kits to improve their comprehension, vocabulary, and speed. Once a week the classes go to the library for recreational reading. At that time the students are assisted by their teachers in choosing good read- ing books. The pupils are required to give six book reports a year. Classes Write, Read, Speak, and Spell Language arts is taught to all Franklin students. This subject is laned so each student may progress at his own rate of learning. In this course the pupils write original compositions, study po- etry and short stories, develop skills in grammar, and learn to spell many new words.

The pupils above are admiring several of the projects, one of which is an ancient Roman map of the hills of Rome. The students who take Latin are basically concerned with learning vocabulary. Along with vocabulary the students translate and drill. Their teacher, Mrs. Chandler, helps the students realize how many English words are derived from similar Latin words. The French students are also basically concerned with learning vocabu- lary. They take dictation from their teacher, Mrs. Springer, and spend much time drilling and translating. The Spanish students ' teacher, Mrs. Springer, teaches the students the Spanish vocabulary. The students drill, translate, review, and memorize much of their work. In the picture above a Spanish student locates one of the many cities in Spain about which his class has talked. French students learn many vocabulary words and among these, of course, are the different varieties of food. Above the students are observing the French names of American foods. General science is studied by seventh graders for one semester. For the first few weeks, health is studied. The prin- ciples of gravity are thoroughly ana- lyzed. Particular emphasis is placed on the metric system, as it may soon be- come the universal system of measure- ment. Other units examined include fire, astronomy, and investigation of chem- ical changes. Eighth graders learn the scientific method and apply it throughout the year. The analysis of energy, heat, and electricity is emphasized. The principles and uses of machines are also thor- oughly covered during the school year. The freshman general science students make an extensive study of living things, discussing the formation, structure, and function of plants and animals. The stu- dents enter the field of geology in their study of the earth. The pupils examine the atmosphere and ponder the mys- teries of the universe during the second semester. Experiments make up an important part of the study of science. These eighth pupils are creating a partial vacuum by the use of heat. grade Classes Increase Knowledge of Science periods are devoted to laboratory experiments. Each uscope, an essential part of the experiments. Biology is the science of life. One of the main objectives of the biology course is to develop concepts and understanding of the wonders of basic life processes. As a foundation on which to build, sci- entific methods are studied first. The students put these methods to use in laboratory periods during the year. Utilizing the knowledge of cell structure and function, the freshmen then attack the study of plants and animals, their structure and function. Genetics, the science of heredity, is presented to ex- plain the normal and abnormal char- acteristics exhibited in organisms. In- vertebrates, vertebrates, microbiology, and multicellular plants are later dis- cussed. In studying ecology the students gain an understanding of how plants, animals, and their surroundings affect each other. The students conclude the year by studying conservation. Students Solve Many Types of Problems This year many of the seventh and eighth grade stu- dents were taught modern math instead of the tra- ditional general math. The students in the X and Y lanes studied the modern techniques while the stu- dents in the Z lanes studied the traditional method of math. The students of the ninth grade were taught either modern algebra or general math. In algebra they tried to analyze and understand the problems instead of just solving them. They also learned to apply a meaning to each problem, thereby obtaining a basic knowledge for future use in their math studies. In general math the ninth graders reviewed and studied traditional math. The course was a review of the general math presented in the seventh and eighth grade plus many additional and practical math techniques. In general math the students reviewed many of the basic skills of math and also learned some new ones. 3 7 8 9 in 5 £»»30 ■53637 3839 40 K 46 47 48 49 50 55 56 57 58 5960 B5 66 67 68 69 70 757677 78 79 80 858687 88 89 90 95 96 97 98 99 BO )nly ninth graders are eligible to take algebra and only those inth graders who have received above average grades in sventh and eighth grade math. At the beginning of the year, the students solve many simple problems, but as the year pro- gresses the problems become more complex and quite difficult. The students pictured above, who are in Mr. Hines ' class, have been studying world affairs and are making many interesting comparisons on the map. This is just one of the many map activities they do throughout the year. Seventh graders at Franklin for their social studies requirement take geography. They study several aspects of many coun- tries and learn their locations throughout the world. The eighth grade history classes study United States history. They try to learn the complete history from the beginning up to the present. The teachers ' main concern is to teach stu- dents the important facts that made history.

Mrs. Archer and Mrs. Werling are two very important people who helped in the functioning of Franklin. These people kept our school in top condition: Elmer Bever, Malcolm Mitchell, William Schane, Henry Schieb, and Louise Strall. ATHLETICS Athletics is one of the key ac- tivities that can unlock the door to success. Students develop fundamentals of athletics, learn good sportsmanship, and real- ize the importance of team- work, all of which can be useful now and in the future.

The association aims to develop qualities of sportsmanship and leadership. n I CLUBS By participating in various clubs Franklin students enrich their lives with new experiences. They are one of the keys which unlock the door to future suc- cess with extra-curricular inter- ests and knowledge through fun. The students increase their circle of acquaintances, learn how to cooperate with others, and realize responsibilities to various organizations. The yearbook staff, under the direction of Mrs. Lawrence, spent the entire year in the production of the yearbook. Their job began with the sale of the books. Next was the selection of a theme and the lay-out of the book. At the same time the cover was being designed and class editors were very busy alphabetiz- ing pictures. Other staff members were setting up group picture schedules. The copy editors and their staff were writing the copy for the book. All of this work went toward the final goal of reaching the four deadlines. After the deadlines were met, there were proofs to be read which were received from the yearbook company throughout the remainder of the year. At the very end of the year the books were distributed to the student body. The Kite ' n ' Key staff produces the yearbook so that Franklin students can have a book filled with many fine memories and recollections of their years at Franklin.

Each member of the staff had to do his part to produce the newspaper even though many times it was a difficult task. Hours on Franklin Publications The members of the Post Staff and their advisor, Mrs. Lawrence, were responsible for publishing Franklin ' s four page monthly newspaper. But before the paper was ready for the student body to read, a great deal of work had to be done. The editor, assistant editor, and news editor began the production by making a story list. The assign- ments were then distributed to the various reporters. After a week ' s time the reporters sent their stories to press. Next the galleys were proofread and the paper was laid- out. The paper was then once again sent to the printers, and two days later the students received the pa- per. The Post editors are the students who helped produce the school paper. Pictured above are Janet Mcintosh, Barbara Zollars, Chris Kemery, and Greta Blackburn. 25 V • Each homeroom elected a representative and alternate who con- tributed ideas and opinions to the Student Council. The repre- £ sentatives read and discussed with the homerooms the minutes from each meeting. Student Council Has Many Projects Franklin ' s Student Council consisted of sev- enth, eighth, and ninth grade representatives. Each member asked opinions of the home- room and related the feelings of the students during council meetings. For the first time the Franklin Student Coun- cil had its own office, located on the third floor of the school building. The office had regular hours during the day. It was used for small committee meetings. The office proved very useful. The ninth grade girls worked together to sew curtains. All the representatives of the council took part in many worthwhile committees. Franklin was especially proud of the Viet-Nam project, which the Student Council sponsored. Also the Council held a skating party, and the money earned was used for CARE packages. This year the Council was under the lead- ership of Mr. Kuhn. This year ' s Student Council officers, Anah Radatz, president; Todd Grove, vice- president; and Cindy Gernhardt, secretary, were elected in May of 1966 by votes of all seventh and eighth grade pupils. They helped Franklin have an active part in school government. 26 The F.T.A. ' s most important con- tribution to Franklin was the formation of Operation Help. This program was designed for students proficient in a subject to help other students with diffi- culties in that area. There were many participants in the pro- gram, and it proved successful. This year, Franklin received 1,000 new books. The members of the Library Club put plastic covers on each new book in addition to their many other duties.
