FRANKLIN'S SEVENTY-FIFTH YEAR -
CLASS PROIJHECY -
How STRANGE IT WOULD HAVE BEEN
The Headmasters of Franklin School affec-
tionately dedicate this edition of the Franklinite
to the memory of Henry G. B. Westheimer,
Franklin, 1934. After graduation from the
Philadelphia Textile School and Harvard Uni-
versity, he served his country during the recent
war as chief inspector of textiles. At the time
of his death he was vice-consul at Calcutta.
India, where he had been assigned by the State
Department. His memory will long be cher-
ished by his classmates and teachers in Franklin

A Message to the Students of Franlelin on 'c e
Qccasion of the chool Diamond. Jubilee
X- UNDERSTAND THAT THE FRANKLIN SCHOOL is the direct successor of the Dr.
Julius Sachs Collegiate Institute from which I graduated in 1895.
During the 10 years I attended the school it was situated at 38 West 59th
Street. The Principal, Dr. Julius Sachs, was a great educator of the old school
of teaching. The discipline was quite rigid but there was a fine spirit de corps
and I think that most of the graduates did well at college, since they had an ex-
Life was much more simple in those days than at present. There were no
automobiles, no radios, no movies, no subways, no airplanes and very few tele-
phonesg but in spite of this and in the face of somewhat rigid discipline, we boys
had an awfully good time. Our main rivals were the Public School at West 54th
Street and the De La Salle Institute, a Catholic School situated on 59th Street
near what is now the Barbizon Plaza Hotel. There was great rivalry between the
three schools. Most of us had lunch at school and after lunch during the winter
months when there was snow on the ground, the boys of each school made a dash
for the summer house on the WVest Drive over Central Park. A great battle always
ensued. The team that had reached the summer house first defended their citadel:
the others charged up the hill in an effort to wrest it from them. I am afraid that
occasionally a stray stone found its way into a snowball, but while there were a
great many bruises, I do not recall any serious casualties.
The leader of the snowball fights-and in fact of all sports-was a boy by the
name of August Valladier. He was somewhat older than the rest of us and we
younger boys looked up to him as a great hero. He was very attractive, cou-
rageous and bold. Unfortunately, I lost track -of him shortly after leaving school
and I have no idea what became of him.
One of the very vivid recollections of my school days was the great blizzard
of l888. It snowed steadily for three full days and nights, and it was extremely
cold with an unusually high wind. As a result, the snow drifted in some places
up to I0 or 12 feet. As I have said, there were no subways or automobiles in those
days and people had to depend for transportation on horse-drawn vehicles or
a few cable cars. We were dismissed from school the afternoon of the first day.
Thereafter, school was in recess for three or four days, but those of us kids who
were permitted to go on the streets did have a wonderful time. I recall too that
the storm brought many tragedies and worries. A great many people were frozen
or became so exhausted that they died or suffered severe injuries. I recall the
g 5S lm r:r':Z'g
worry that we had concerning my father. He left the house for his office downtown
as usual on the first morning of the storm. There was no means of his getting
back because virtually all transportation had ceased. Finally he managed to
charter a milk wagon which brought him home at three or four o'clock the fol-
lowing morning. Meantime, such telephone service as we had had ceased so that
we did not know what had become of him until he appeared, none the worse for
his experience! '
We had a football team which held its own reasonably well with other private
schools. I was particularly proud of our track team of which I was a member and
manager. In 1895 we held an inter-scholastic track meet at the Old Williams
Bridge Oval. My speciality was the mile walk and I was fortunate enough to win
the gold medal, largely I believe because all my good competitors were ruled out
for running. Even through I was a very mediocre athlete, I was mighty proud
and still am of that gold medal. The training of our track team was done on
the grounds of the old Pastime Athletic Club which was situated near the East
River where the New York Hospital now stands. We had a baseball team but it
never amounted to much. Virtually all of our practice and games were held on
vacant sand lots which in those days were very numerous on Fifth Avenue between
59th Street and Harlem.
Vie had some very good teachers. The Assistant Principal was Mr. Charles
VV. Harrington, who taught mathematics and science. He died about 30 years
ago but I believe his widow, who must be very close to 100, is still living. Our
French teacher was Monsieur Porret, who was very popular. He always had a
ready joke and was a kindly, gentle, sympathetic man. Our German teacher,
Herr Preuss, was a typical Prussian and was very strict with the boys. We were
always very much amused at him because when he had his luncheon at his desk,
we knew he always managed to slip a goodly portion of "schnapps"' in his milk.
He thought he was fooling us but he didn't get away with any more than a teacher
would today with the boys of your school under similiar circumstances. Mr.
Weiberzahl, who taught history, was also very strict.
The most popular teacher was a man by the name of Frank E. Erwin. He
was a graduate of Williams College and was resp-onsible for my going to Williams.
My father had wanted me to become an 'engineer, and by some miracle which
I still cannot explain, I passed my examinations for the Columbia School of
Mines. Mr. Erwin, however, was not satisfied at the prospect of my becoming an
engineer, and he went to my father to tal-k the matter over with him. He told my
father that he was spoiling what might be a reasonably good business man and
instead would make me a very poor engineer. My father fortunately listened
to him and as a result I entered Williams in l895.

In the lower classes we had a number of very excellent women teachers. Miss
Estvan taught us reading: Miss Bonnell, arithmaticg and Mrs. La Prince, art.
By the way, Mrs. La Prince had a very pretty daughter, Amy, who was a few years
older than we. I think most of the boys had a crush on herg I know I did. She
probably is at least a grandmother by this time, but I would like to see her again.
The largest group in my class for some reason entered the medical profession.
Among others, Ernest Sachs, Hans Zinsser, Herman O. Mosenthal, Henry L. Weil,
Gustav Fried, William Lesem. Some of these men attained a high position in the
medical profession-notably, Hans Zinss-er who became a leading professor of
Harvard and was the author of many important books on pathology which 10 or
15 years ago had wide circulation. He unfortunately died a few years back.
Dr. Julius Sachs, Principal of the school, came from a cultured and intellec-
tual family. One of his brothers was Dr. Bernard Sachs, the well known neurol-
ogist: two other brothers, Mr. Samuel Sachs and Mr. Henry Sachs were leading
bankers. He was a close relative 'of Dr. Felix Adler, founder of the Ethical Culture
Society. His son, Dr. Ernest Sachs, is a professor of medicine at the Washington
University of St. Louis. His nephew, Dr. Paul Sachs, is director of the Fogg
Museum and a leading member of the Harvard faculty. Other nephews and
nieces hold important places in the field of sci-ence and medicine.
While I was at school I am sure that I had 'just as many gripes and kicks and
periods of discouragement as the modern schoolboys and girls have today. My
recollection, however, on the whole is a very happy one and I am grateful to the
fine body of men and' women who helped educate me in the face, I am sure, of
many discouragements and many disappointments. I believe that you of the
Franklin School can have some sense of pride in being pupils of an institution
which succeeded the Sachs Collegiate Institute, undoubtedly one of the leading
educational organizations in the latter part of the 19th century and the beginning
of the 20th. '
With best wishes and kindest regards, I am

Qyynelv I wAs cAI.1.15u upon to deliver the salutatory address, I was somewhat
puzzled about my duties so I decided to consult my friend Webster.
Alas, to my great surprise, I found that the word, "salutatorian", was in some
way conected with the Latin expression for health. Now, although I meant
to wish you all from the bottom of my heart the best of health, I still wondered
whether my salutatory duties would be fulfilled in this way. Finally I read on
to learn that lexicographers have a wonderful way of producing marvelous trans-
formations in words-a salutatorian is one who delivers an address of greeting,
one who speaks a welcome. Thus tonight as duly chosen representative of the
senior class, it is n1y privilege and pleasure to welcome you, who are assembled
here to honor our graduation from secondary school and our entrance into a
more responsible stage of manhood. I hasten to assure you that I shall do my
best to make this speech a short one as from former experience, I know that
brevity in such cases is greatly appreciated, even if some gentlemen in the
audience should blame me for depriving them of a comfortable nap.
We, of the senior class, have waited long for this day, some because it will
signify the beginning of a college education and the nearing of the goal which
they have set for themselves, others, because it will offer them a respite, however
short, from the studying with which school is always associatd. In the years
spent in Franklin, we have passed through thick and thin, physics and chemistry,
Latin and French, and now Finally appear before you as responsible individuals
and good citizens, ready to go forth with conhdence, and good cheer. We realize
that you, parents and teachers alike, have altruistically devoted to us all your
love, wisdom, and experience and it is thus with hearts warm with gratitude and
thankfulness that we salute you tonight at the graduation exercises of the class
of 1947. We are proud and happy to greet you on this evening which marks
the beginning of the period in which we shall fulfill your trust in us by proving
ourselves worthy sons of wonderful parents.
We have tried to arrange for you a pleasant and memorable evening which
we hope you will enjoy and remember as a significant and happy occasion.

llranlelinls Seventy-live Years
, N 1872, DR. JULIUS sAcHs opened a private school on Broadway, not far
X from the present location of Macy's. There is no record that President
Grant sent a letter of congratulations on opening day, in fact, there appear to
be no records of the early days of the school. It was called by the old fashioned
name, "The Sachs Collegiate Institute." NVho its first graduates were, and whether
any of them, now past ninety years of age, are still living, must remain shrouded
in mystery. About all we know of the early history of the school is that it attracted
a following of good families, and that it soon bore the reputation of being one
of the best preparatory schools in the city. This seems remarkable whon one
bears in mind that Dr. Sachs was only twenty-three years old when the school was
organized. Were he living today, he would celebrate his ninety-eighth birthday
on July sixth of this year.
After serving for thirty-two years as headmaster, Dr. Sachs retired to become
the first Professoir of Secondary Education at Teacher's College. His successor
was Dr. Otto Koenig, who controlled the destiny of the school for twenty-
eight years. In the audience tonight there must be many who can remember
Dr. Koenig, a man of fine physique and a robust constitution. He was steeped
in all the classical learning of the German universitiesg and had the last copy
of Vergil been destroyed, he could have reproduced it page by page from his
The school owes much to Dr. Koenig. With the advent of the automobile
the parents began to fear the dangers of Columbus Circle, which most of the
boys crossed on their way to 38 West Fifty-ninth Street, where the school had
been located for several years. Backed by the patrons of the school, Dr. Koenig
was responsible for the move to Eighty-ninth Street. In the same year, the name
"Franklin," replaced the rather antique sounding "Sachs Collegiate Institute."
The best records of the school are preserved in the "Red and Blue," the
school magazine, which is now in its forty-ninth volume. For many years it
contained short stories, poetry, essays, editorials, alumni news, and school news.
Only the literary department remains since the founding of the "Franklinite"
and the "Councilor."
In 1932, upon the retirement ol Dr. Koenig. Mr. Hall, who had been with
the school since 1910, and Mr. Berenberg, who had come to Franklin in 1913,
became the headmasters.
Franklin is now entering its seventy-sixth year. Let us hope that its future
will be marked by the same success which, in the past, has given the school
its excellent and well-earned reputation.

History of the Class of 1941
NOTHER GRADUATION! Another class history! Little did I think as I sat
I in the audience at the previous Franklin graduations that some day
I would be class historian. Only recently, have I realized the difficulty of the
task which confronted me.
james Boswell, I recalled, spent a lifetime writing the history of Dr. Samuel
Johnson. Yet in a few weeks I was to write the history and achievements, not
of one man but of thirty-four.
Feverishly I went through dusty records in the school office in an attempt
to amass information. After due research, here are the facts which I have un-
covered about this year's class, the seventy-fifth to graduate from Franklin School.
On a September morn eleven years ago Bill Goldstein, Lew Cole, Len
Ullmann, and I entered the portals of our alma mater. On the landing of the
office stood Mr. Hall smiling benevolently at those who would be his future
prize English students.
Our first years at Franklin were very happy ones. The weekly schedule
consisted of 2 singing periods, l reading period, and 23 gym periods. Besides,
any student with an average below 982, was considered rather dull.
In the Intermediate grades, the class destined to be one of the largest in
Franklin history, grew by leaps and bounds. During these years such stalwarts as
Ralph Mallin and Art Skupsky joined our midst. As our minds became more
and more mature, chalk and board erasers took on a new and deadlier meaning.
When we reached the Junior grades, Mr. Bere-nberg's Latin classes became
a reality. Unsuspecting lambs that we were, how could we foresee Cicero and
During the war years we all did our part in the war effort. Though we
were too young actively to participate, we purchased War Bonds, contributed
to worthy appeals, and helped our fighting men overseas. It was also at this
time that our valedictorian Marty Duke and our saluatorian Steve Schenker
joined the class.
Slowly but surely our class reached full strength, and by the time we
reached Senior A, our mettle was shown in all fields of endeavor. Articles for
the Red and Blue, the school magazine, were mainly written by members of
the class, and a fine job was done by its editors Mike Art and Perry Neuschatz.
All the boys lent a helping hand in the printing of the bimonthly newspaper,
the Councilor, which you see before you. The chess team, spurred on by Steve
Tmrmr sous 4-Q44
Schenker, was almost exclusively made up from Senior A boys, and the team
had a fine season.
, In the field of athletics, though we won no championships, our record was
an enviable one. joe Sweedler and Paul Rosen did a great job on the basketball
team, while Bob Rosenthal starred on the baseball squad.
This year, for the first time since the war, a Senior prom was held. This
affair, at the Hotel Pierre, was a great success, because of the hard work of Dick
Epstein, Dick Trattler and Dave Rosen.
The history of the class of 1947 is not terminated by our departure from
school. The future is ours to achieve. Not for many years to come will all
our accomplishments be recorded. Kale hope they will always be an honor to

ONIGHT, NVE THE graduating class have gathered, not mainly to receive
awards and diplomas, but rather to pay homage and render sincere thanks
to our parents and our teachers. It is due to their unceasing efforts for our well-
being that we are able to assemble together as a group of boys, well-fitted and
prepared for whatever may lie ahead. This is a night of hopes cherished deep in
the hearts of many of usg and, as I gaze round at the fathers and mothers
congregated here, I can see mirrored in their eyes the high ideals and aspirations
that they hold and will continue to hold for their sons.
As the years advance, many of us will be scattered throughout this country,
each pursuing his desired occupation. I cannot help but feel that the thoughts
of every member of this class will often pause for a moment of reflection as he
remembers his days at Franklin: the wonderful bond that exists between teacher
and pupil, the fine spirit of the athletic teams, and above all the friendship
and fellowship that this school has always emphasized. Sara Teasdale expressed
this thought most explicitly in one of her poems:
"Into my heart's treasury
I slipped a coin
That time cannot take,
Nor a thief purloin.
Oh, better than the minting
Of a gold-crowned king
Is the safe-kept memory
Of a lovely thing."
Time itself can never erase the happy memories that we have gathered here
We, the boys of this class, will soon have to take our places among the
responsible citizens of this great country. For this tremendous task we fortunately
are well prepared, and we will advance with confidence into this world, secure
in the belief that we will bring credit to our families, our friends, our school,
and our country. This, with our faces and efforts bent to the future, and our
hearts strengthened by the past, we, with God's grace upon us, say thank you

alumni activities, the COUNCILOR was published at, the customary bi-
The. staff of this year's COUNCILOR overcame many obstacles to produce a
publication of which they were justifiably proud. Editor-in-chief Leonard Ull-
mann introduced editorials which dealt not only with school affairs, but also with
broader topics of importance. The paper was fortunate in its associate editor,
Lewis Cole, who worked hard for the success of the paper. The covers were
drawn by Perry Neuschatz who laso is responsible for the popularity of another
innovation: cartoons on the feature page. The board of editors also included
Samuel Rosenfeld, Martin Duke, and Ralph Mallin.
The COUNCILOR staff of '47 trained a number of interested students who
will continue the publication in coming years. These boys will maintain the
high standards achieved by the 1947 staff.

HE STUDENT COUNCIL continued its silent and important role in school affairs.
The council is composed of representatives from all the upper school classes
and extra-curricular activities. Under the guidance of its faculty adviser,, Mr.
Berenberg, the council took an active and decisive part in school activities.
The student council organized and carried to successful completion four
major charitable drives. The school raised two hundred dollars for the Red
Cross, and one hundred dollars for the Greater New York Fund, the Cancer Fund,
and the March of Dimes. The student council designed and purchased school
buttons. It investigated and acted upon suggestions for the increase of extra-
curricular activities. The council's officers were Leonard Ullmann, chairmang
Steve Schenker, vice-chairmang and Samuel Rosenfeld, secretary.
The role of the student council as a method for developing student experience
in self-government and democratic process cannot be underestimated. It is truly
the factory of future citizens.

has his own particular field or interest, but all are attracted by their mutual
interest in the various fields of scientific endeavor. Mr. Stevens lets the discussions
guide themselves and fully proves that students, however young, can hold mature
and worthwhile meetings if they have a mutual high interest.
The large number of boys of all the senior classes attracted to the club insures
the continued success and popularity throughout the years to come.

to strive for a glee club. This year their fondest dreams were realized. Under the

After the first few meetings, when club officers and the Student Council
representative were elected, the boys settled down and began to do some hard
work. When the glee club made its initial performance of the year, the efforts
of the members were well-rewarded by the applause and praise given them by the
This year the members of the club came from the three senior classes. Since
few of the members graduated this spring, next year's club will be built around
a nucleus of experienced singers. Throughout the past few months the work of
the glee club continuallyimproved. The final triumph came at the Commence-
ment exercises when the club gave an excellent demonstration of choral singing.
That fine performance gave great promise of future success for th club. With
the help of Mrs. Ross, and the experience gained this year we are sure that this
success will satisfy the desires of all those who enjoy good singing.

The Red and Blue
RANKLlN'S LITERARY MAGAZINE, THE RED AND BLUE, continued to print the
finest efforts of undergraduates in the fields of essay, poetry, and short story.
An accurate mirror of the thinking of the students, this year's issues showed that
students' interest had sharply decreased on the problems of war and politics,
and was deeply concerned with the topics of teen-age life. The style of writing
showed, as usual, the effect of the study of the great English and American authors
in Mr. Hall's classes, but there were evidences of the popularity of the con-
temporary psychological schools of literature.
The editors of both the winter and spring issues were Perry Neuschatz and
Michael Art. Leonard Ullmann, Martin Duke, Samuel Rosenfeld, and Irwin
Stern were associate editors.
Although a great majority of the material published this year was the work
of the senior class, the school can look forward confidently to the continued
excellence of the RED AND BLUE.

N Tm: MosT SUCCESSFUL season it enjoyed in many years, the Franklin chess
team turned in a winning campaign in both league and exhibition play.
Under the able guidance of captain Steve Schenker and president Leonard
Ullmann the team played thirteen matches. The enthusiasm of the boys was
manifested by the fact that in every contest the team was at top strength, and
by the fact that Varon, Cole, and Gutner learned the game with thorough pre-
cision in a single year.
The team was invited to play in the Manhattan Chess Club against the
P.S.A.L. schools. Playing on five boards instead of the usual four, the Franklin
boys found difficulty in matching the superior skill of the large public schools,
but history shows that Franklin compiled a fine record. Ten boys saw action in
these matches, action which made them into a well-rounded team. The school
defeated Newton High and Erasmus. In the only other exhibition match,
Franklin defeated Trinity ZMZ-ly,
Franklin placed second in the private school's league tournament. The
team won its matches 3y2-lyg, and its games 13-7. The school won against
Trinity, McBurney, and Columbia Grammar, drew with Horace Mann, and
lost to Horace Mann-Lincoln. Steve Schenker won all his games at board one
and the league rapid championship.
The team in most matches was composed of Schenker, Ullmann, Goldstein,
and Varon, in that order. Martin Duke as alternate saw action five times, while
other players were Spellman, Gutner, Levy, Cole, and Frankel.
The season was a success in all aspects, for the boys not only won games
but also friends.

NCI-I AGAIN THE Franklin soccer team struggled through an unsuccessful
season. Although the boys showed a great deal of spirit and light, the
forward wall was never able to pierce the opposition's defense, while the full-
backs lacked stature and experience.
The season opened with a 1-1 tie against Birch Wathen. The Franklin
hooters led throughout the game, but in the linal moments of the contest, the
determined Birch Wathen boys pushed through the tying goal.
The team lost four games. These matches against Staten Island Academy,
Horace Mann-Lincoln, Brooklyn Friends, and Fieldston saw the Franklin team
outplayed and outclassed. Al Frankel led the team with skill and fortitude in
close contestsg but hard as the boys played, they were never able to crack through
the oppositions's superior strength.
The sole victory of the season came against Woodmere Academy. In a fast,
well-played game the Franklin boys worked as a single unit to triumph by the
score of four to two. The game saw all the boys playing well, but special praise
should be given to Frankel, Fischer, Rosenberg, Landsman, and Ullmann.
Gil Rosenberg will be captain of next year's team. Returning to play on the
team will be George Fischer, jerry Katz, Pete Berman, George Beck, Mfallace
Arthur, and Bob Kosches.

HE FRANKLIN SCHOOL baseball team managed to make a fairly creditable
showing though it lost most of its games. The team lacked that little extra
something required to win ball games.
Bob Rosenthal in his Hrst year at Franklin showed the team the winning
spiritg and Larry Gutner, another newcomer, also contributed to the team's
success. On the whole, it was the plan of coach A1 Herman to develop material
in the lower high school classes in order to have a winning season next year.
Gil Rosenberg, who will be captain next year, led a group of promising young
talent: Milt Chodack, Stan Lederman, Bob Meltzer, Stan Schneierson, the VVilson
brothers, jerry Katz, and Sonny Rosenzweig.
The team won three out of its eight games: it defeated Holy Trinity,
St. Peters, and Barnard. The greatest moment for the team was the fine play
it turned in against a strong Barnard squad.

Although early in the season a rosy picture was painted for the Franklin
rooters, the team was never able to live up to its advance notices. After losing
a game to Brooklyn Friends, the Franklin Hoopsters gained a well-earned victory
over Collegiate. This was followed by a victory over the Alumni, a game that
saw joe Sweedler score twenty-one points.
When the boys returned to school after the Christmas vacation, much of the
early season spark and hustle seemed to have been lost. The Lincoln game was
typical of many close games in which the team was nosed out. After a long up-
hill struggle, the Franklin boys saw a number of their shots roll heartbreakingly
around the rim, only to fall out. Paul Rosen's last minute shot will long be
remembered, as it bounced and rolled out after seconds of tense expectation.
The team played its best game with Brooklyn Friends. The Friends had
defeated us earlier in the season, but the second game was a different story.
By playing heads-up ball the Franklin boys were able to hand the Friends their
only defeat of the season.
The team suffered a great blow when, early in the season, julie Weiss was
