It affords me great pleasure to extend to you our collective greetings. I know quite well that the proceedings about to take place will long be remembered by my classmates and by myself. This is rightly so because we of the graduating class have reached a line of demarcation. We are no longer carefree high school boysg we are now men, ready to begin to take our true places in the world and its society. Not a single one of us could have reached this milestone of today without the continued guidance and assistance of our teachers, or without the under- standing and inspirational encouragement of our parents. I do not doubt that this assistance and encouragement will endure for a good many years to come, and I am sure that I speak for my classmates wholeheartedly when I say that we shall ever feel indebted and grateful. As we leave Franklin School, we also leave behind us fond memories, and yet we look ahead with keen anticipation. One more step has been taken on the long road towards the culmination of our education. The past four years will always be endeared to our hearts. In conclusion, may I again thank every one of you for attending tonight's exercises. We, the class of 1951, are sincerely honored, and we hope you will enjoy the program that is to follow. -Ion-:N Soi-iwms Twenty sux 4-QQ I 'll F ULASS Ill 'llllll Being class historian is a singular honor at any time, but today it takes on a double importance. At this tin1e we, the class of 1951, along with our two highly esteemed headmasters, Mr. Hall and Mr. Berenberg, leave the halls of Franklin. Though our days at Franklin have not been as many as theirs, we shall nevertheless carry away many pleasant memories. Classes come: and classes go, but Franklin School will go on forever. The class of 1951 is the seventy-ninth to graduate. Naturally with friendships it has engendered and with the conscious- ness of its unusual ability, it follows that every class thinks that it is the best one that has ever left the halls of Franklin. So we think tonight. just look at us, and you can understand the validity of our claim. There are twenty-six members of our class, twenty-six very capable youths, all looking forward with enthusiasm to college. Twenty-four of us have already been admitted, and the other two expect letters of acceptance soon. My first recollection of our class was when I entered in Intermediate IV and joined Burton Levy, Steve Wolf, and Alfred Sommer at their games and super- vised activities in Central Park. In junior II we were introduced to Mr. Berenberg's Latin class. Such irregu' lar verbs! Television was just entering the homes of America. How strange that simultaneously our marks began to drop. By the time we reached Senior C we were ready to enter the classes of Mr. Hall, Mr. Kern, and "Doc" Stevens. Who will forget Mr. Kern's French and Spanish reports hurriedly put together at the last minute though they were assigned months in advance. Who will remember the French and Spanish irregular verbs? We soon discovered that many of us were spending much time with "Doc" Stevens because of one little word he uttered: "Detained". Who will forget Mr. Hall's joviality and his odd crypto- graphic marking system! By our first year in high school, most of our class athletes had joined us. This year our class has helped Franklin to do very well on the athletic field. Ira Scharfer and Larry Brookman each won five out of seven matches for the tennis team. Don Gurry also did his part. The basketball team, managed by Victor Yveintraub and largely composed of members of our class, came in second in league competition. Among the starting players were john Schwab, Walt Cho- dack, Alvi11 Levy, and Dave Sontag. Our baseball team has just completed one of the best seasons in Franklin history. The majority of the boys on the team, Herb Goldberg, Arthur Meyers, Ed Gerber, and the Tager brothers, to name a few, are in our class. 359+ Twswrv-seven . .. ww-,Wjgng 'M tl , W , tl l Many of our classmates have actively participated in the extra-curricular activities. Our class has contributed greatly to the success of the Science club, the Glee club, the Chess club, and the newspaper. Tom Kneitel and Stuart Bardin have done a good job with the Red and Blue. john Schwab participated in the New York Times Youth Forums of the Air. Of the few New York schools repre- sented at the Columbia Forums on Democracy, Franklin has been one: for the past two years a member of our class was one of the school's representatives. Who will forget the Saturday morning help classes in preparation for the College Boards? This year, when we defeated the faculty in baseball at Indian Point, we remembered the last of our many field days there. And thus we draw our history to a close, a history only partly begun. May our members serve society well: may we cherish the bonds of friendship: may we always be loyal to the high principles of living instilled in our hearts and minds by our teachers and headmasters.

Like a bolt out of the blue I was asked to turn class prophet and seer and render judgment on my fellow-students. Here was I in the midst of my daily homework and approaching final examinations with the chore of foretelling the distant future of my peers, accurately more or less. In thinking over this diflicult task, I was reminded of the old adage that history repeats itself. I was on the spot all right: still I went in search of old records pertaining to the history of man in the hope of unearthing some parallel to our times for comparison. I discovered an old, fragile, and faded parchment, written in ancient characters, as easy and simple to read as Egyptian hieroglyphics. To translate this into the King's English required the imagination of a Shakespeare and the linguistic talents of an H. L. Mencken. If my labors appear somewhat stilted, it is probably due to my eagerness to render this too literally. Strange as it may seem, here is what I found: jerry Kosrhes, the eminent humorist, has just written a best seller, "Ten Thousand Ways to Break up a Geometry Class." Im Schaffer, president of a prominent brokerage Firm, guarantees every stock he sells "good till the last drop." Richard Ehrenfeld is bringing home the bacon, I mean baked beans. He's in the canning business, but never eats his products because he claims that he's allergic to cans. The concert pianist of world renown, Rirlmrd Shumck, prefers his notes on green backs. john Schwab has become a philosopher. He has devoted his life to putting in his own words all the ideas of his predecessors. Swimming champ, David Sontag is a distinguished broker, dealing in watered stock. Stephen Wolf, the famous ichthyologist, is always hatching plans for creating new breeds. He may end in a pool of glory. Burton Levy has cornered the soap market. His publicity agent, Victor Weintraub, when interviewed by a reporter of a local newspaper, declared that Burt owed his great health to clean living. Franklin School, as you can see, is graduating boys who not only excel in their general aptitudes but have a hne promise for the future. If presidents were to rise from their midst, it would not surprise us. Lionel Mehler, the zipper tycoon, is now rolling in dough from one of his inventions. He is equipping the nozzles of bottles with zippers. 9-F Twemv NINE 4' Alvin Levy is a regular CPA, coat and pants analyst. His subtle sartorial additions and subtractions add up to a fine figure. The illustrous writer, Charlie Tager, is being psychoanalyzed by his brother, Dr. Michael Tager, for self-plagiarism. Charlie can't stop stealing his own stuff, he thinks it so good. Irwin Moscozfitz, Christian Diors' closest competitor, clothing designer extra- ordinaire, is rather upset about his most recent business prospects. Irwin com- plains there just aren't enough colors in the rainbow. The well known dabbler in letters, Stuart Bardin, whose recent book "What Would You Do lf You Had a Billion?" sold a million copies, boasts he is never out of "Vogue" and always in "Time". Larry Brookman, the famous dentist and former tennis champion, makes it a practice to get on people's nerves. As a side line he restrings old tennis rackets. Eddie Gerber, whose chief interests are oil-wide, always starts his conversa- tions with "Well, what?" jay joseph, well known mining engineer, who is always digging for bare facts, recently came up with the premise that he could move mountains if the hills were not in the way. Arthur Klein, a master mind, a "gem", processes razor blades to a keen edge. Prominent banker, Donald Curry, has recently been in legal difficulties for trying to capitalize the Brooklyn Bridge. Gurry's attorneys, Herbert Goldberg and Arthur Meyers will argue in their client's defense that no crime was com- mitted since he sold all the stock to members of the Senior B class. The brilliant diagnostician, Dr. Walter Chodack, has developed his art to the point where few patients ever complain. He does not treat the sick. Tom Kneitel has just published his thirty-third novel. As nobody can under- stand it, it will probably win the Pulitzer Prize. Ned Markowitz, successful textile tycoon when told that he would have to pay more taxes, replied, "You can't pull the wool over my eyes." With a sigh of relief I have come to the end of my labors as a soothsayer. I cannot vouch for the veracity of the foregoing: in fact, at times I found the hieroglyphics somewhat ambiguous. I can only echo the thought which has been previously expressed here tonight-God speed all of us, and may all our efforts be crowned with success. ALFRED Sowmm Ti-um: 4-'K 4,A.,, uni ,. .,, ..7g:.,.- .- i in-V - llllLlllllU'l'llllY This evening we, the graduating class of lEl5l, must bid farewell to Franklin School. ln tl1is final hour our feelings are mixed with joy and sadness. There is joy because tonight marks the culmination of our efforts up to this point: and there is sadness, because a period, rich in happy and carefree experiences, has passed from us forever. No longer can we lean upon our teachers for support. Wle must stand upon our own feet in the world we are about to enter. At the present time this world is in a grave crisis. Two ideologies face each other and vie for recognition. The solving of this great problem can very well fall on the shoulders of us graduates. X'Ve must be prepared to face the future and to help mold the world on a just, peaceful, and lasting basis. This conimencement is especially important because it marks the retirement of our two esteemed headmasters, Mr. Berenberg and Mr. Hall. They have been more than teachers to us. They have been respected friends, valued advisers, and efficient and intelligent headmasters. I consider it a privilege to be able to bid them a final farewell. On behalf of the class 1 would also like to express our gratitude to all the members of the faculty, to our parents and friends for their understanding and guidance throughout the years. Even though our high school days have ended, nothing can ever separate us from our litany precious memories of the years we have spent at Franklin School. We now turn with eager and expectant hopes toward the future.

Thou shalt not make any drawings or any manner of likeness on the black- boards of those who are in the High School above or in the Primaries beneath, or in the gymnasium under the Primariesg for We, thy headmasters, are avenging headmasters who bestow demerits on all offenders. Thou shalt not forge our signatures on any excuse, for the teachers will not accept them anyway. Remember the Sabbath day so that thou mayest rest and sleep late thereon: five days shalt thou labor and do all thy work, but the seventh day is a day of rest both for thee and thy teachers, and thou shouldst not be detained thereon. Honor the faculty so that thy days at Franklin may not be prolonged unduly. Thou shalt not show thyself up at Help Classes. Thou shalt not try to figure out Mr. Hall's marking system. Thou shalt not covet thy seat-n1ate's Latin pony, nor his compass, nor his Daily News, nor his lunch, nor anything that is thy class-mate's.

Berena berg and Mr. Clillord XV. Hall, in the Colonnades Room of the Essex House. Approximately three hundred alumni, parents, and students were present. Alter an excellent repast, the toastmaster, Mr. Irving Galpeer, presented the lollowing speakers: Mrs. Ira Goldenblum, President ol' the Parents' Association. Nr. lra Scharfer, President ol the Student Council. Mr. Fred Block, Representative of the Older Alumni. Mr. DeXVitt Stern, who read telegrams from alumni and parents who were unable to be present. Mr. Moe Spahn, the new Headmaster, who presented Mr. Berenberg and Mr. Hall with watches and chains. Messrs. Berenberg and Hall. Although both the headmasters injected some humor in their speeches, it was evident that they were deeply moved by the honor bestowed upon them at the dinner and by the thought of leaving Franklin School. They expressed the hope that under the headmastership of Mr. Spahn the school would continue with ever-increasing service and success. The entire evening was one ol' the most pleasant in the history of the school. Tn-uarv-roua 44-sff SENIOR A Top: Sommer, Levy, Wolf Bardin, Goldberg, C. Tager ll ' Kosches, C hoda Ck, M.

All the activities that had previously functioned continued, and a Camp Counsellors' Club was organized with Mr. Spahn as director. Because of his experiences in various summer camps, especially Winaukee of which he is a director, he was particularly prcpared to guide such a group in order to train the boys for leadership in this Held. Throughout the year the clubs functioned well. In all likelihood the Science Club was still the most outstanding. The boards of publication brought out the usual issues of the "Red and Blue", "The Councilor", and the "Franklinite". For the first time "The Coun- cil0r" was printed instead ol' being mimeographed. Its new form was much more attractive and saved many a boy's shirt from daubs of printer's ink. In addition to the regular clubs, the Library Committee and the Student Council deserve much credit for their contribution to the school. Fonfv rwo 4-4? W STUDENT COUNCIL 0 Top: Zisfcin, Richmzm.
