The publication of this annual has now be-
corne a fairly Well established tradition at
Franklin. Although this is only the third year
in which it has appeared, it now seems to be al-
most as well rooted as the school magazine. We
of the class of nineteen thirty feelythat we have
no unusual literary talent which can make the
year-book in any way outstanding: and the
existence of an economic depression has been a
serious hindrance to the Hnances of this publi-
cation. Yet a tradition, even though it be a
young one, is Worth maintaining: and we of
this year's senior class have done our best to
carry on the standard for another year in the
hope and expectation that our successors Will.

the Northeast corner of 32nd Street X

After spending a short time in temporary quarters on
West End Avenue, Franklin finally moved to its present site,
18 West 89th Street. - The school has been located in this place
for some time now: but the city is still changing and growing.

The man of highest station who deserves congratulation
Is our celebrated master, Doctor K.:
I-Ie has known us all since babies, thru the measles and
And has taught us how to work as well as play.
King Solomon's adviser could have been but little wiser
Than the German class's only source of hope.
Of Norwegian he's a scholar, and ability to holler
Is within the learned German teacher's scope.
An instructor who's inspired, but more frequently is, ired
By our well-known inability to learn:
And who teaches Spanish classes to a group of playful asses
Is none other than the famous Mr. Kern.
When a man who's much respected hears our English dialected,
Then an anecdote at once is called to mind.
I-Ie will tell us of the hours spent among the Yankee flowers,
From Connecticut he came you soon will find.
Our husky hist'ry hero is as absolute as Nero.
He's as big as Grantland Rice and twice as strong.
I This pedantic Mr. Welling does a great amount of yelling,
K If our answer to a question should be wrong.
Now the mathematics teacher makes detentions quite a feature
Lest the class that he is teaching chance to fail.
So he keeps the class for hours learning plus and minus powers
Till we wish we'd taken algebra by mail.
I conclude my little story in the merry laboratory
Where the chemistry instructor holds his sway.
Now that no one has been slighted, you will surely be delighted
I've said all that I intended to convey.

3 Alas! Alas! The great historians of the world are all dead. Tacitus Q
i has long since turned to dust: Gibbon likewise is no more: Macaulay and X
5 Carlyle have joined the ages. How can we, humble nondescripts that we C
are, give full justice to the lofty subject it has been our lot to write upon?
The best we can do is to make a feeble and perhaps futile attempt to set
Q down chronologically, for the world to wonder at, the eventful history of
the class of 1930. Of course, by this we do not mean to say that the re-
cording of these events is anything extraordinary: the mere facts them-
3 selves are sufficient to hold one all but spellbound. c
One pleasant morning in late September of the long to be remem-
K bered year of 1919, twenty-one youngsters with rather scared looks upon 1
3 their cherubic faces walked or were carried up the flight of stairs on their c
way to the first primary. On the landing in front of the office stood Dr.
Koenig, smiling benevolently at those who were destined to become his
'Q prize Latin students. Finally we entered the classroom, where we were y
greeted by our class teacher and assigned to our seats, as at that time there
were still desks in the first primary: and after a roll call, in which the
3 teacher seemed to have a very hard time in understanding the King's 6
'K English Cas spoken by usb, we were initiated into the rudiments of the art 1
of choral singing, much to the disturbance of our neighbors across the
Greatly as we should like to discuss at length all the incidents which
occurred during our early years, later events are so many and more im-
'K portant that we must take the liberty to omit the former. Therefore, 5.
let us come to the period when our illustrious class removed to its head-
quarters to Intermediate III on the second floor. Here our long and bril-
5 liant career of triumph over other classes began. It was in this class that Q
K we won the penmanship placque, overcoming the class ahead of us, which JK
was renowned for its excellent penmen. Again in the following year we
gained the same trophy, thus holding the prize for the longest possible
time. In those two years, however, our greatest triumphs were in the
field of duelling and fencing. Brave indeed and scarce were the men who
i could withstand the powerful attacks of our class sallying out during 5.
lunch-period, armed with rulers and window-poles, and under the able
leadership of generals, captains, lieutenants, spies and the like, all of whom
5 Cexcept the spiesj Wore large and ornamental badges designating their Q
K various ranks. Even to this day we rejoice in the memories of those X
J C 5 5
Upon our entering the Hrst year of high school we evolved the .
9 novel idea of publishing class papers. The number of these periodicals Q
is astounding, and they should stand as shining examples to the classes
l which are following us. "The Daily Brat," "The Phli-catcher," "The I
5 Ice Cream Warmer," a merger of the first two, "The Bologna Bender," 6
and later "The Loudspeaker," the "Ubiquitous News," the "Morning
e Glory," and finally the "Classmate," were published, the last of which '
C was so excellent a paper that there appeared in the editorial column of the ,
"Red and Blue" a statement to the effect that no class paper ought ever
to compete with the oflicial organ of the school. What more glowing
3 tribute could be paid to this culmination of our journalistic endeavors, Q
none of which ever had any Hnancial support?
l That spirit, which previously had led us to such great prowess in I
3 duelling, now manifested itself in our athletic endeavors. In Junior I 6
we had a football team which had a fafrly triumphant season with the
classes above and below us, and also with various outdoor clubs. More-
i' over, in the last three years members of our class held important positions B
li on both 'varsity basketball and baseball teams: and this year formed the
jx nucleus of a squad, which has been the most successful in years. We have A
4: not only been engaged in these standard games, but have also given the 6
tennis and chess teams our ardent interest and support.
Our class has also demonstrated, in many ways, its remarkable L
qi genius for organization. For instance the constitution under which our 6 .
class is governed is a document worthy of an association of Philadelphia Y.
.fit lawyers. It contains over twenty-two articles, amendments, and codicils,
3 which deal with all possible contingencies, such as the false impeachment 4 t,
, of ofhcers, the forcible collection of dues, and many other equally import- 4'
lt ant matters. And our numerous class meetings are run under strict par- lf
3 liamentary procedure, the teachers, strange to say, being the only indi- Q
, viduals who now show not even the slightest pleasure in our dignified p
I methods. We have organized a science club, which discusses the adroit ll
B' problem of modern scientiiic development: a poker club, which emulates if
. . . R
the great game of bluff: and a nlx-kenners club, to which a certain mem-
flt ber of our class raises all boys, who in his eyes perform anything stupid. A
3 This concludes the tale of the achievements of the Class of 1930. 1,
1, Now we are to part, but in leaving one another we shall say not good-bye
K but rather "Au Revoir", In the years to come we shall all probably meet
3 again, and then we shall surely look back with pleasure on the days We 6
spent at Franklin. X

And as I gazed around me, what I saw did much astound me,
For above me I beheld the Golden Gate.

But that poet of the ages, who sees fit to earn his wages,
By conducting people through the realms of air.
It was Vergil and no other, I was happy to discover,
And I asked him if his business then was sound:
But he sadly had to tell me that since Dante's trip through Hell he
Had discovered no one else to show around.
I said, "Vergil, please inform me on the question that has drawn me
On the flying trip that lately brought me here:
Do you really make us change when we come in heaven's range,
So that in truer shapes we all appear?"
Then with most dactylic laughter. and a solemn spondee after,

Come I'll take you through the stations where we do the alterations,
And show you all the perfect work," he said.
So we walked until we came to a hall of Franklin's name,

Through his mighty megaphone, Vergil started in to drone,

5 able thermos bottles. But when he had started this enormous factory, ,
,' Bram realized that something was lacking in all the thermos bottles of ll

pany launched a campaign for colored thermos bottles to suit your mood.
Q If you felt sour, you drank lemonade from a yellow bottle: if your hopes Q
had been crushed, you drank grape-juice from a purple container: lastly, 1
' if you felt like getting drunk, you drank wood-alcohol from a mahogany

"The piece of music entitled "Moonlight in Yonkers" is Martin
Kahn, who. as everyone expected. became the leading soprano at the
3 Metropolitan Opera House. His supporters called his voice heavenly. His D
i i enemies said it was only heavenly in that it was unearthly. Once, during
a performance of 'Die Walkure,' the horse on which Martin was sitting

D in the manner of all great singers, Martin retired and went back to the 1

K cellent offers on the managerial board of the great newspapers of the time.
5 But Robert was bent on developing the perfect filing system, whereby no C
bill went uncollected for a period of more than twenty-live years. The
' success of this device was not very Widespread: but as he had fortunes Il

N l'That gavel that makes so much noise rapping on the table from
1 force of habit is Robert Mandel. Having finished school without mak- .lf
ing up his mind which college he would attend, he spent the time building y,

Hoover heard the boy in the midst of one of these orations: and realizing

"The blushing violet on your left happens to be David Prager. For
a long time David tried to cure himself of blushing by learning self-con-

K cient volumes and first editions, with a special section of censored literature
that made the store a paying proposition.
3 "The little polo pony prancing in the corner is Spencer Samuels. As Q
long as he managed to stay in the saddle, Spencer was the world's fore- 1
most polo player: in fact, so good that he often gave the other team some
ii assistance by shooting a few goals for them. Spencer's last game, how- e

y "The bridge you see from the window is what John Silberfeld
5 turned into. Johnny became a great bridge contractor, and went down in J
li history for one particularly brilliant stroke of genius. He had always
noticed that one of the great handicaps in bridge building was the pres-
i ence of water. He had usually overcome this obstacle until, once, he was Q
Y confronted with the task of bridging a very stormy bay. For months Il
. 1, the raging water' fought every attempt to span its seething tide. Johnny 6
A went into seclusion and emerged a week later with the problem solved.
Jkt He built the bridge ten miles away on dry land where the water didn't lf
Q interfere. To show its gratitude, the country gave him the bridge. N

whom humanity was polite enough to call a surgeon. He went into a

t profitable and dependable because a person who managed to get by Jerome if
JO was too worn out to resist Roger. Because of the increasing mortality
5 rate, however, Roger was forced to give up his profession: so he retired and ,
I went down to Florida to pose for sun-tan advertisements. A'
li "The giant dahlia staggering around in its pot is the transformation
of Milton Untermeyer, the greatest horticulturist the world has ever
5 known. Milton's great success as a raiser of flowers could never have i
been realized without his ability to raise the roof with his saxophone, X
K however, for one night when a sudden frost threatened to nip in the bud.
as it were, what Milton considered to be his greatest achievement, he took C
l out his saxophone and by dint of red-hot numbers all night long, he man-

the most fragrant ever grown, its life was very. very short: so Milton
1 l named it the Franklin Lunch Hour Rose.

9 Last Will ana' Testament
K We, the class of 1930 of Franklin School, New York City, being
3 of sound mind and memory do make, publish, and declare this as, and
for our last will and testament. Q
FIRST: We direct our executors, hereinafter named, to pay all our I
Q just debts and expenses as soon after graduation as possible. C
SECOND: We give, devise, and bequeath unto our successors, the class
of 1931, all classroom property and belongings of every kind and de-
, scription including: a rare old wall map, dating back to the time of Troy, D
and signed by Hector, Aeneas, and Juplterz four yard sticks, each approx-
K imately two inches long and badly damaged, formerly used by D'Artag-
nan when he conquered the Swedish army single-handed: a cord with a
microscopic piece of chalk still hanging to it, believed to have been the Q
property of a famous geometrist, C. Forster. 1
C THIRD: We give, devise, and bequeath unto our successors, the class Q
of 1931, the senior coat room, to be used by them with reverence for the
year following our graduation.
FOURTH: We give, devise, and bequeath unto our successors, the class 5
of 1931, the sum of fourteen cents CS. 141, not to be spent all in one place
but to be invested in safe bonds, the interest from them to be given to the
K class of 1932 for the support and maintenance of the class mascots, the
goldlish, which may or may not be still living at the time of our gradua-
tion, but which, nevertheless, may be found in the water container of the '
9 Senior A class room. J
FIFTH: We give, devise, and bequeath to our successors, the class of
la 1931, our noble friend and worthy adviser, Mr. Clifford Hall, to be used
carefully for one full year following our graduation. Q

3 Some Ula' Friends in zfze Lower World 3
l "Well," asked the guide, "what do you think of Tartarus?"
3 "Remarkably interesting place," I replied. "Tell me, though, what Q
room is this? It isn't painted red like all the others, and it doesn't seem 1
a bit as though it were a torture room."
' C "This is just a rest room," my guide explained, "for the use of some C
characters who have been brought from the Elysian fields to torture high
school students who disobey the Ten Commandments laid down in the
3 'Franklinite' of 1930." QSee page 435. "There goes the gong now. l
They struck for an eight-hour day last month, and now they are on a
l regular union basis. Quick, come this way, get under that couch before
3 they see you, or you will be in for a hard time. Q
I had barely concealed myself when a group of laughing men and Xl
women of very familiar aspect invaded the room. "Have a drink and "
f' ii quench your thirst, Henchard, and you too, Lycidas." said Bacchus, of- C
fering them a hip flask. Y
"Not for me," responded Lycidas. "I drank enough that night I N

"Lord, I'd like to sink my teeth into a decent meal of Saxon pork
Y instead of this eternal nectar and ambrosia," mourned Athelstane of Con- IN

E "Speaking for myself," responded the aged Venetian, "I'd prefer a pf

"I-Iow's the stock market today?" asked Silas Marner thoughtfully.
II "Rotten", replied Cassius in a discouraged tone.. "When Mars announced 6
that he was engaged to Venus again, Colt Revolver fell off thirty points.

I3 "I suppose they're all right, and they're supposed to have a great fu- Q
ture," responded Daedalus in a doleful tone, "but once in the air was I
enough for yours truly. From now on I am going to stick to terra iirma
if I can."
"I think I'll offer a prayer to Mammon on behalf of some of these
investment trust stocks," remarked Aneneas piously.
"See here," shouted Macbeth in an irritated tone, "I'm heartily sick R
and tired of hearing you babble away at those darned old rigamaroles all KL

5 "You don't say," answered Rebecca of York, "I think I'll go down C
and have my face lifted." Monsieur Perrichon gallantly offered her his N

R She did not finish her remark, for several Jew-haters, including Gra-

"As a matter of fact," remarked Comus to Dido as they sat together
on a couch, "I think that Lucifer and Ixion and Beringer and Sisyphus,
D all these chaps who are supposed to be getting the worst tortures, are D'

3 No one knows just how the rumor started. It might have been the
fact that the boiler-room door was kept closed, and the shades on the Q
windows were kept drawn, or perhaps the fact that Mr. Smith would 1
K allow only teachers to enter the room. At first nobody thought Very
much about the matter, but a mild curiosity was aroused when it was no- Q
ticed that Mr. Allison often went into the room gloomy and emerged
3 wreathed in smiles. Then the students began to take more interest when
it was noticed that the boiler room had become a frequent meeting place l
1 for the teachers during lunch hour and free periods. In fact, a short stay
3 in the boiler room seemed to rejuvenate all the teachers except Mr. Gors-
line, who was never seen to enter the room, They would enter the room Q
despondent and wearied, showing the effects of the strain of their endless 1
c battle against the noise of the students and the riveters, and would emerge
looking refreshed enough to hold a mass meeting of the whole school at C
1 a moment's notice, or perform some other Herculean task. .
The Senior class decided that the matter had to be investigated at
once. A secret class meeting was held during a Latin comprehension test, , l
and it was so quiet that Mr. McDonald, who was supervising while Dr.
4 Koenig was called away, was never awakened. It was finally decided that
the class detective, Roger Steinhardt, should make secret investigations,
and was to report at the next Latin test. He never reported anything but
9 progress. It was noticed, however, that in his next month's marks, his
average went up fifteen per cent. l
K A group of the most public-spirited boys in the class then decided
3 to investigate on their own hook for the good of the school. Beringer, on
account of his natural ability to be able to keep quiet for great lengths of Q
time, was delegated to hide in one of the gymnasium lockers until nine X
c o'clock at night, when even Mr. Smith had left the school. He then Q
opened the door and admitted his colleagues, Raphael, Bernstein, Frauen-
thal, and Weinstein.
3 "Are you sure we are perfectly safe, and that no one will find us?" J
murmured Frauenthal timidly.
l "Don't worry, I'll see that you are protected," said Weinstein as-
3 suringly, "let's go down to the boiler room." Q
These five brave youngsters then filed courageously down to the
.E basement. But, alas, the door was locked! Suddenly Frauenthal had an X
1 fifty-four D
inspiration. Thrusting his left leg over his shoulder and sticking his head
between his knees, he reached a comfortable position whereby he could in-
sert his nose under the door and about three feet into the room. Hue
thought he smelled alcohol, he said, but he wasn't sure whether the odor
had come from the room or his own breath. At Beringer's suggestion
that they try one of his chemical tests, the committee went home.
Excitement was at fever heat. Little groups of pupils were to be
seen constantly discussing the matter. There was a great deal of inatten-
tion in the classes by both students and faculty, The teachers strolled
through the halls with downcast eyes and furtive looks. The matter came
to a head when Moretsky pointed out that if the school were padlocked,
there could be no classes. A committee was appointed to report the affair
to the local Prohibition Administrator.
The members conferred for four months on Ways and means of find-
ing an afternoon on which the entire group would be free to go down and
report to the authorities. The anxiety and suspense grew so great, mean-
while, that at last the entire student body marched down to the boiler room
together and demanded ad-
mittance. The door opened,
and everyone craned his neck
to see what was inside.
There, seated in a circle, were
several teachers puffing away
at pipes and cigarettes.
The students who poured
into the room formed many
unfair and incorrect opinions
of what was going on. These
were in part due to a slight
odor of alcohol and spoiled yeast which permeated the room. It is in an
effort to do justice to these misunderstood members of the faculty that we
offer this explanation. In the corner stood a small, inoffensive-looking
still, holding about a glassful of a mixture of partly fermented water,
yeast, and sugar. It was the work of a young and ambitious member of
the chemistry class who was experimenting with the commercial manu-
facture of industrial alcohol. The frequent presence of the teachers is ex-
plained by the fact that this is the only place where they can enjoy a smoke
without infraction of the school's rules. We trust that this note will
serve to clear up any misunderstanding and that in the future the students
will be less prone to think evilly of their revered faculty.

Although only the third of its kind in the history of Franklin, the
Senior Promenade met with unprecedented success. The dance was started
C School Dance was supplanted by it. ' J
V The Class .of '30 decided to hold their never-to-be-forgotten affair
in the school gymnasium. So, on March eighth, many of the alumni and 'i
9 argoodly sized representation of the undergraduates mingled with their 6
friends in the gymnasium which was beautifully and appropriately decor-
l ated with streamers, vari-colored bunting, balloons, and banners. Besides 1
5 an excellent orchestra, entertainment was supplied by Dick Lewine and 6
Sam Walsh, who played several piano duets of popular music. Also de- T
licious refreshments served to make the evening a "hopping" success.
By employing entreaties and threats the Dance Committee finally B .
succeeded in persuading the dissipating Franklinites to take their beautiful '
partners home.-but not until the ninth of March was several hours old.
3 Besides being a social success, the Promenade broke all records as a 6
1 l financial one. The proceeds of the dance were donated to the "Franklin-
lt ite", the Year Book published by the Senior Class. 1

li On April eleventh a large group of mothers and fathers gathered 1
3 in the gymnasium to hear the senior debate. The reason for such a num- Q
I erous gathering was undoubtedly the interesting subject that had been
chosen, "Resolved: That women have improved the political situation in
li the United States since the passage of the Nineteenth Amendment." Up- ,
holding the affirmative and chivalrous side was the senior class, represented
.lt by Robert Mandel, Milton Untermeyer, and Warren Silver, with Robert
3 Lewine as alternate. Opposing the seniors was the junior class with 6
, Joseph Rosenstein, Herbert Ahrend, and George Baumann, Richard Katz-
li enstein, alternate, as speakers. I
3 After a short introductory speech by Dr. Koenig the debate was f
.V started, and for one hour it waged fiercely, neither side gaining the advan-
tage until there stepped upon the platform a slender youth, unassuming
ji in appearance, representing the junior class. Up to this point what J
advantage there was had been for the seniors, but when this slender youth
-lx had seated himself once more, and when the audience had finally stopped
9 its applause, the juniors were far in the lead. Of course, you all know 6
1, who that slender youth was: none other than Joe Rosenstein. Webster 1
N himself could not have chosen a more psychological moment than did Joe,
Q when, entirely extemporaneously, he brought down the house Q
by quoting a poem of Keats in answer to the quotation which War-
ren Silver had used just before him, Not only was it the psychological mo-
Q ment, but the poem was of a rare appropriateness. With such a rare J.
combination present, how could anyone fail to swing the judges in his
favor? Much credit is therefore due to Joe for bringing the victory to his
9 side in a unanimous choice. Q
K Outstanding on the senior side was Robert Mandel, hero of three 1
previous class debates. It was unfortunate that he was unable to complete
3 his record with a victory as he surely would have done if Rosenstein had 6
not been on the opposing side and hadxnot had the opportunity that he
got. Great credit is due, however, to the members of both sides for
C the excellent debate which they presented. The decision of the judges was j
unanimously in favor of the Junior class.

Again this year the two lowest high school classes presented their
annual debate. It was held on March twenty-eighth. and a goodly gath-
ering was present to hear the boys. speak. The topic was, "Resolved:
That the Baumes law should, be repealed." On the affirmative side was
the Junior II class, represented by Aaron Buchsbaurn, Herbert Silverman,
and William.Woolner, alternate: while opposing them was the Senior C
class. upheld by Ralph Marx, Edward flltheimer, and Harold Landau, al-
ternate. Inasmuch as the Senior C class had had experience in last year's
debate. they had little trouble in gaining the victory, although the younger
boys, inexperienced as they were, turned in a' highly commendable debate.
Members of both teams deserve to be congratulated equally, although the
judges cast their ballots unanimously in favor of the older boys.

3 Fran.Uz'n Debating Club y
A The Debating Club has just passed another successful season under
5 the guidance of Mr. Hall, its faculty adviser. The membership was Q
slightly larger this year than it has been for some years past, but there B
were a few absentees at every meeting which prevented the number from
'Q becoming unwieldy. The membership was well divided between the two Q
upper high school classes.
At the first meeting Mr. Kahn was elected president: Mr. Lewine.
3 vice-president: and Mr. Loewenheim, secretary. The latter received at the y .
If end of the season the customary gold-piece for his work in keeping the
' minutes of the club: and the president received a constant stream of wise-
3 cracks and dirty looks for his efforts to maintain order at the meetings. Q
'Y The other members were Messrs. Ahrend, Baumann, Tipograph, Levy, X
' Samuels, Katzenstein, Rosenstein, Frauenthal, Mandel, Zipkin, Silber-
lk feld, Silver, Untermeyer, and Beringer. Q
J In the early part of the season, the debating was on the American
l Plan, later the plan was a matter of choice with the speakers, and finally
l 3 a motion was passed requiring all debates to be on the Oxford Plan there- D
after. Awards for prepared and impromptu speeches were given more
' sparingly than in the previous season: and up to the last meeting several
' li boys were still eligible for the award, which was won by Mr. Mandel. f
jg The choice of subjects and the arrangement of the sides were ad- 6
lm mirably handled by Mr. Hall. There was considerable difference of opin-
y ion as to which had been the best and most interesting debate, since there D
1' were a number of excellent ones from which to choose. The sense of
l humor displayed by the club this year did not seem to appreciate the
3 "funny stories" as well as the relaters had hoped. Q
The final meeting was held at the home of the president. This was X
the only meeting at which dinner was served to the members of the club.
l During the evening the Prom Committee looted the hotel for signs for Q
the dance. After the debate the customary awards and speeches were
made, and the season of 1929-1930 was brought to an end. In conclu-
3 sion, we shall rise in a standing vote of thanks to all the kind hosts of i
i the season. '

l "The meeting will come to order!"
3 Seventeen young men, members of our debating club, which is holdn Q
ing its first meeting of the year, are seated around a luxurious living-room.
They are busy swapping jokes, discussing everything but the topic for de- A
K bate, and taking apart the host's radio. They pay no attention to the V Q
"The meeting will come to order!"
3 Many new conversations are started. The tone of the chairman l
gradually changes from command to entreaty. Finally quiet reigns su-
l preme-for the short space of live seconds.
Q Chairman: "Is there any old business?" Q
A member: "I move that last year's-" X
"Stand when addressing the chair."
K "I move that last year's constitution and by-laws be adopted." C
Members from Senior B: "What are they and why?"
There is a long pause. Finally the secretary is instructed to bring
a copy to the next meeting. This plan fails, however, as the secretary ,
does not have a copy and knows nothing about them.
Another member. "I move that the motion be tabled until such time
K as the constitution may be seen."
Third member: "I move that the motion to table the motion be .
3 First member, waking from nap: "I move that the motion to table j
the. motion to table the motion be tabled."
K Chairman: "Let us have a vote on the motion."
3 By this time all of those present are so confused that the entire mat- Q
ter is dropped, but not before someone has moved that the constitution be X
adopted until it can be seen. After many hectic moments, the business
K meeting is closed, and the debaters are ready to speak. 6
Chairman: "The first speaker for the affirmative is Mr. Cicero."
Affirmative speakers, all shouting at once so that none can be under-
3 stood: "Our first speaker is D. X. Webster." 7
K Chairman Qleaning heavily upon the back of a chair, and breaking

,Q The Red and Blue is a magazine published four times a year by the Q
11 student body of the Franklin School. The magazine is edited, managed, 1
3 and written by the students of the school: and its purpose is to afford an Q
Y outlet for the literary talents of the students and to act as the oflicial organ
of all undergraduate and alumni activities.
qi The past year has been a very successful one: and the numerous pages 3 C
of the magazine have been filled with articles, stories, and editorials, which
-ll were rated high by the Columbia Scholastic Press Association, In fact,
Q the 1929-1930 volume took third prize in its class in which magazines Q
f from all over the United States were entered.
In The past year has seen the completion of the thirty-fourth volume 1

v Cfzesx Team
A Two years ago several members of the class of 1928 formed a chess
team, thereby reviving an activity which had not been in vogue at Frank-
lin for almost thirty years previously. The team, that year, met with a
fair amount of success, winning fifteen out of thirty-two games played.
Last season, however, there was very little interest shown by the students:
and only three matches were arranged, two of which we lost, and the last
of which we could only draw. So it can be seen that up to the beginning
of this term we had had one sucecssful and one unsuccessful season.
But this year although our team had a most encouraging outlook,
the outcome was-somewhat disappointing, partly on account of canceled
matches. A very large number of candidates applied for positions: and
although, of course, only four men could make the team, much valuable
material for future teams was uncovered. The score for this year was:

: Mr. MncKen,
Again this year our much tossed-about basketball team was placed
under the guidance of a new coach, this time Mr. Donald MacKen. Mr.
MacKen came to us with an enviable record of championship teams behind
him, and it seemed as if our days of constant defeat were to be ended. As
the early days of practice passed, the doubt in the minds of players and
students as to the potentialities of the coming team was slowly dispersed,
and after the first game this doubt gave way to confidence. Almost
duplicating last year's final game, the team opened its most successful sea-
son in five or six years by scoring a victory over Columbia Grammar that
showed that the playing, though far from polished as yet, had the basis
for a real passing and lighting team. Thus it happened that when the team
came to face Trinity in the second game of the season, perhaps a little
too much was expected of them. The desire to win the game with one
of our most ancient rivals almost carried us to victory, and it was only in
the last fifteen seconds of play that our opponents broke through to score
the deciding basket.
There followed one of the hardest, though not longest, schedules
that we have ever faced. As usual, most of the schools we played were a
great deal larger than ours, sometimes boasting a squad almost double the
size of ours. But to repeat again, the team battled through to the day
before the final game with an even number of victories and defeat, much
to the credit of the boys, and above all to Mr. lVlacKen. In the last game
all precedent pointed to an easy victory for our opponents, Loyola. Every
year that we had ever played them they had succeeded in trouncing us by
a large score, and their rooters were expecting a like performance. But
maybe this confidence caused their downfall, or perhaps the great fighting
spirit and the tremendous desire of the Franklin team to achieve this vic-
tory was the cause. We prefer to believe the latter reason the true cause,
and the Franklin supporters agree with us to a man. A certain amount
of basketball skill, however, was necessary to beat Loyola. and it was due
to our coach alone that our aggregation was transformed from an over-
anxious and raggedly shooting and passing team into a fast, sure, and
fighting quintet. During the days that the future seemed blackest Mr.
i3"if'ty?f4"""P1E"TJf'K'f'5V3f WaEY5i'k?'35"'k?Q'f2E"5'Y 'lf
MacKen never gave up hope, and it was this spirit which he inspired in the
9 boys that brought us to the top. Now that his system has taken growth
K in the school, and it seems to be an unusually good one, we can hope for
even better teams in the future with Franklin once more holding its place
9 among the private schools of the city.
, K THE SUMMARY OF GAMES
Dec. -FRANKLIN 19, Columbia Grammar 18. A fast, hard game
with Franklin justly emerging victorious after a great rally.
5 Dec. -Trinity 18, FRANKLIN 16. A hard game to lose. especially
K after we held our opponents to even terms until the last twenty
3 Dec. -FRANKLIN 25, McBurney 24. The third successive game won
or lost by one basket, Pete Cohen and Capt. Forster doing
, all the work.
' ik' Dec. -St. Joseph 35, FRANKLIN 13. Hopelessly outclassed by a re-
jk markably good aggregation.
'Q Dec. -FRANKLIN 25, Alumni 20. The superiority of this year's
team decided once and for all.
Jan. ll-Fieldston 18, FRANKLIN 14. One of the greatest disappoint-
1' ments of the year. We should have won rather easily ....
i but, what's the use of talking now?
Ji Jan. 21-Collegiate 45, FRANKLIN 14. The less about this game, the
3 better. We were Collegiate's tenth consecutive victim.
1' Jan. .-FRANKLIN 28, Woodmere 22. Mon Dieu, what thrills! It
' took an overtime period and Pete Cohen's fourteen points
3 finally to give us the victory. Bob Lewine's presence was
acutely felt in the last minute of regular playing time.
, Jan. 24-Mt. St. Michael 33, FRANKLIN 21. Our nemesis of last year
K still present in one of the hardest games of the year.
Feb. 5-Columbia Grammar 25, FRANKLIN 17. Our most bitter rivals
Q finally managed to beat us, evening the series again. "Foul-
ingest" game of the season, twenty-six committed.
K Feb. 7-FRANKLIN 34, Lincoln 21. Our three game losing streak effec-
3 tively stopped with Capt. Forster making nearly half of our
Feb. 10-FRANKLIN 34, Kew Forest 17. For the first time this season
C we had a winning streak even 'though it was only two games
gfpvg-Wm -fry' -cygesagwusfuffuv A-N
Feb. 14-FRANKLIN 25, Woodmere 21. Our winning streak grows to
three games in another breath-taking contest.
Feb. 21-Mt. St. Michael 28, FRANKLIN 15. The mountaineers re-
peat their first victory with Golde and Cohen supplying all
Franklin's field goals.
Feb. 25-FRANKLIN 26, Loyola 20. Eureka! Gadzooks! Parbleu!
With everyone on the team supplying a few points we emerge
victorious in the most brilliant contest of the season, bringing
our final total of victories above our defeats.
THE HIGH SPOTS OF THE SEASON
Captain Forster's sixteen points in the Lincoln game, the greatest
amount scored in one game this season.
Pete Cohen's versatile playing coupled with twelve points in the Mc-
The first Woodmere game-the only overtime contest and Lewine's
four points in the last half minute of regular playing time which tied the
The second Columbia Grammar tussle with its twenty-six fouls and
near Hstic battles.
The second Woodmere game with its many thrills: the sinking of a
field goal by Harrison, Woodmere's captain, by batting the ball in from
a jump ball. Captain Forster's reciprocation later in the game by sinking
a spectacular shot from three quarters the length of their large floor with-
out the ball's touching the rim or hardly ruffling the net.
DeGoff's goal in the Loyola game, scored in the fifteen seconds in
which he played. The scoring of eleven foul shots out of thirteen chances.
Clifford Forster, captain, forward and guard. This year, as last,
Capt. Forster formed the nucleus of the team almost singlehanded. His
frequent scoring, excellent guarding, and fighting spirit was one of the
most important factors of our success. He played forward the greater
part of the season, but in the last few games was transferred to guard
where he continued his excellent playing. Best game-Lincoln.
Peter Cohen, forward and center. After but little experience on last
year's 'varsity, Pete came through to star brilliantly at the forward posi-
if S i
tion this season. Not only was he the high scorer of the team: but when
it became necessary for him to play at center, he lost none of his effective-
ness. Best game-McBurney.
Harold Golde, center. At the beginning of the season we were minus
a center, with almost no prospects. But Harold changed from forward,
which he played last year, to center, and developed into an excellent player
at this position, also. With his spirit aroused, he was always one of the
best men on the floor. Best game-Second Mt. St. Michael game.
Robert Lewine, guard. As was expected of him, Bob turned in
some of the finest guarding exhibitions seen this season. Not only did he
confine himself to keeping opposing forwards from scoring: but quite
often, when We were badly in need of points, he came through to score
them for us. Best game-First Woodmere contest.
Norman Forster, forward. Upholding family traditions, Norman
turned out to be one of the most consistent scorers in the last half of the
season. In the last seven games he scored thirty-three points to the seven
which he scored in the first eight. Norman will captain next year's 'var-
sity, and he will undoubtedly be as much to the team as his brother was
this year. Best game-Loyola.
Edwin DeGoff, guard. With no previous experience on a 'varsity
team, Ed turned out to be one of our best guards, causing opposing for-
wards plenty of trouble. Occasionally he broke loose to score badly
needed points. Great things can be expected of him next year. Best
Robert Gross, guard. Among our most consistent guards Bob holds
a high place. It was due in no little part to him that our opponents'
scores were not higher. With the experience gained this season Bob ought
to be one of next years' brightest stars. Best game-Trinity.
Stephen Dessau, center. With but little previous experience Steve
showed that he was able to hold down the center position in a thoroughly
satisfactory manner. He has the height and the jumping ability to get
the jump anywhere, and next year he can be expected to rank among the
high scorers. Best game-Trinity.
Henri Weisman, forward. During most of the season "Frenchy"
was the leader of the second team, showing the lighting spirit and playing
ability that stamp him as a coming star. Besides these qualifications, he
has speed and a good shooting eye, which, coupled with the experience
gained this year, will make him a constant Worry to opposing guards.
Best game-4-First Columbia Grammar game.
a " . i 1 ,
Spencer Samuels, manager, center. With almost no previous ex-
perience "Penny" went out and earned a position on the 'varsity. If he
were not graduating this year, he would undoubtedly hold down the center
position a great part of the time next year. Best game-Lincoln.
Seymour Robinson, guard. The greatest improvement during the
season was made by "Cy" Robinson. His lighting spirit was present
whenever he played and made him one of the opposing forwards' greatest
troubles. Next year's team will have him as one of its most important
assets. Best game-Second Columbia Grammar game.
In the very first game that the "jayvees" played, the skillful hand of
Mr. MacKen could be seen, not only in playing and shooting, but also in
spirit. Invariably they played teams that were far too large for them, but
they never gave up, and their record shows the result of their play. They
won about the same number of games that they lost. and this in face of
the fact that only twice did they play schools with "jayvees" their size.
Among the most promising for next year's 'varsity are Bobby Reade,
star and high scorer of the team: Stan Shevell, center: Johnny Davis, who
shows promise of being one of the best basketball players that Franklin
ever had when he reaches the senior class: and Paul Lazare, forward.

K The outlook for tennis at the beginning of the season was very A A
bright indeed. Almost one 'fourth of the entire! high school reported for T ,
3 practice which was to be supervised by Mr. MacKen. Plans were made Q '
to run olf a round robin contest to determine the best players sothat a re-
presentative team could be selected. Unfortunately the first day set aside ,
Q for practice was cold and rainy. Our hard luck continued, and it rained Q '
on each successive day set aside for practice. Thus it came about that the
season started before practice.
