Jubilee K K' 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- cellent grounding. 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 EIGHT 4"KK6 'A -... a 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. 99?-? Nme NN Sp up Xl 1' f 4 V F 'vu ts' 4 H. I 'Yann i , u 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.

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. STEPHEN SCHENKER THIRTY Two 441 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 marvelous memory. 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. L1-:wts Cote 59+ Tr-nurv THREE 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 Virgil? 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 Franklin School. SAMUEL L.

Ed Rybakoff always was a tender person: now he s making legal tender. U: Why, hello there, Hal! V: Hello, Len: it's good to see you. U: I hear that you play the piano without hands. V: That's nothing. Most of the people on the radio sing without voices U: Are you still playing that same piece? V: Yes, it still haunts me. U: It should. You've murdered it enough. V' Do you know that Tommy Mohr is running the best restaurant in town? He has gravy of all colors to match any shade of vest. U: Is that so? By the way, how did the Dodgers do today? V: Do you mean the Liquid Stockings? U: "Liquid Stockings," Hal? V: Yes, no runs. Bob Rosenthal pitched a 29-28 victory although he was pretty badly drummed. While broadcasting the game Irv Grubman became excited and shouted, "He swang at it." Fifty-two sets in Boston blacked out' U' Sam Rosenfeld is in the clothing business. He says it suits him. His dresses are not only fits, they're convulsions. V: Dan Monowitz, who is rolling in dough and loafing on the side, is backing one of Ralph Mallin's new inventions. Ralph is equipping the nozzle ol a bottle with a zipper. U: What's Dave Rosen doing? V: He's a chiropractor. His jokes always have a new twist. U: I suspect it came from boning up on exams. Stanley Shapire says that nobody came to the opening of the show he's currently backing, and that attendance fell off the second night. Manny wrote the comedy, but Manny always was Witty. Dick Trattler, who has the lead roll, said that what the show needed was more Art: but Mike Art, who is in the dry cleanm business, couldn't come, because he didn't wish to spoil his spotless record V' julie VVeiss is working on the railroad. He always was a good track man U' And Murray Sobel is in the book business. He has just published Arthur Skupsky's new philosophical treatise on schools. V' I have read it. He writes that one shouldn't study, for then one becomes a mental wizard, and one oughtn't to change one's personality. Arthur has also solved the problem of buying new books each year. All the student need do is remain in the same grade. THIUY snx 4-K- Paul Rosen and Bob Harris now own Optimes. Bob recently returned from a vacation and asked Paul how business was. Paul answered, "Looking up. It's flat on its back." Billy Goldstein is a salesman. He's such a good salesman that he just sold the foothills a pair of shoes. I was reading in Irwin Parness' column that Harvey Roer of M.G.M. fLion's Roarj says that his new picture will have a sad ending . . . a week after it opens. Ed Feldman and Murray Landsman are in the airplane business. They told an irate customer that no one had ever complained about one of their parachutes not opening. Their slogan is "Good to the last drop." Steve Schenker is coach of the Cornell chess team. It is said that he greases his men before rapid tourneysg but be that as it may, his influence on chess has been so great that open files are now called "Polish corridors." Donald Levin, who owns a gas station without a roof, no overhead, asked taxi driver Herb Lustig how business was. "Not so good," answered Herb, "I hardly make enough to pay for the damage I do to other cars." Perry Neuschatz was showing joe Sweedler some of his newly designed houses. "Here's one without a Haw," said Perry. "OMIGOSHl" exclaimed Joe. "What do you stand on?" Dick Epstein, who is a lawyer for an oil corporation, starts every sentence with "Well . . .

"Quite a few," Billy answered, "but I don't need your help, Larry. I already have their telephone numbers." Martin Duke, the polite Englishman, cannot bear to see women stand in the subway. What does he do? He closes his eyes. Martin is writing a mystery cookbook. One of the contents of every recipe is missing. What are you doing these days, Lenny? I'm psychoanalyzing Lew Cole. The idea that Lewis is always associated with coal is depressing to the man who is head of the N.A.M. For a psychoanalyst like you life must be a bed ol roses. Neurosis, you mean . Well, its been a pleasure seeing you again. It certainly has. Good-bye, Hal. 9?-V Tmarv seven ale icfory 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 at Franklin. 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 and farewell.

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. 9577-5 Foarv n-inte I STUDENT CCUNCIL 0 Top: Grubman. Berman Bottom: Rosenfeld, Ullmann joseph tudent Counci 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. 9553-5 Fonrv-Five SCIENCE CLUB Top: Koxnmel, Jubiler,, Ga laif, Michellnan, Kreilsheimer Berman, Lowell, Stillman, Ru dow, Roer Bottom: Ulllnann, Rosenfeld Cole, Shapiro, Trattler, Mr Stevens, Parness, Art, Rybakofl Mallin Science Club or A DREAM OF the mad professor in "Science Fiction," but an average meeting of the science club brought forth a rash of coils, galvanometers, chemicals, retorts, movies, and wildly talking earnest young men. Every Monday afternoon Mr. Stevens took a back seat in the laboratory and let the club oflicers, Sam Rosenfeld, Lewis Cole, and Ralph Mallin take over. These boys planned and ran meetings in which lectures, demonstrations, or movies were given by the members of the club. Each club member led the discussion at least once during each term. The club is composed of students in the three top Franklin classes. Each 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. 95595-?

Stern, Rosenzweig At the piano: Mrs. Ross The Glee Cluh EVERAL YEARS Aco THE boys of Franklin began a glee club. Although that first organization was famous for its dismal failure, many persons continued to strive for a glee club. This year their fondest dreams were realized. Under the able guidance of Mrs. Ross, the glee club became an important and respected organization. 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 entire school. 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. 79 Fonrv Nm Y THE RED AND BLUE 0 Top: Schenker, Parness, Ro- senberg, Varou, Mohr, Rosen Middle: lviuy, Trattler, Mal- lin, Sprung, Joseph.

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. 95525-7 Fxrrv one 455116 t t CHESS TEAM 0 T 0 p : Goldstein, Gutner Duke, Varon Bottom: Cole, Schenker, U11 mann, Spelhnan Cl1GSS TGHHI 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. 9225-X Fnsrv rr-me K-11146 SOCCER I Top: Kosehes, Levy, Grub man, Ullniann, Toback, Ar Lhur Middle: Weiss, Katz, Mallin Beck, Art, Berman Bottom: Goldstein, Landsman G.

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. 97?-5 Fnsrv FIV E ,,,f 3 TENNIS TEAM I To p: Goldstein, Wiener Sprung, Stillman, Ullxnann Bottom: Philips, Duke, Lands man, Shapiro, Mr. King Tennis eam HE FRANKLIN TENNIS TEAM completed its second successful tennis season with an enviable record. The season started with a three and one hall to one and one half victory over Collegiate. Both John Philips and Martin Duke won their singles matches. while Leonard Ullmann and Ted Weiner won at doubles. Billy Goldstein and Stan Shapiro split their doubles point when their match was called on account of darkness. Murray Landsman lost the remaining point. Franklin also won its second match, a three to two contest against Elizabeth Irwin. Philips, Duke and Ulltnann-Mfeiner won points. Roger Sprung lost at third singles, while Goldstein-Shapiro lost at doubles. Franklin lost its first contest against a strong Fieldston team by the score of three to two. Philips and Duke won, but the rest of the team was unable to score. Rankled by this defeat, the team came back to triumph over Barnard by the score of four to one. The regulars won easily, and the only loss occured when Steve Schenker was rushed in as a last minute substitute for Murray Landsman. In its final league game, Franklin was defeated by Horace Mann-Lincoln four to one. Philips won in straight sets, but the rest of the team succumbed to the superior play of the league champions. With a record of hard fought matches and clean sportsmanship, the tennis team of 1947 leaves the record of this sport at Franklin with a fine future and a rewarding past. 9535+ Fusrv seven IFTY'FlGHT BASEBALL Rosenzweig, Art, Jacobs, Gus- tin, Kreilsheinner, D.

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. 3553?-V Fnrrv NINE BASKETBALL TEAM 0 Top: Rosenfeld, Rosenzweig Commanday, J a r IH e l, Mr King Bouomz Schueierson. P. Rosen Sweedler, YVeiss, Steingesser Katz Basketball jf FTER A DISMAL AND unsuccessful soccer season, it was hoped by all that L the basketball team would give the Franklin fans a taste of victory, 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 injured. The captain of next year's squad will be Stanley Schneierson. Other boys who will be back next year are Milt Chodack, jerry Katz, Lou Steingesser, Sonny Rosenzweig, and Martin jarmel.
