STEVENS Prlheaoal of Upper School Benjamin Franklin was the first, and remains the greatest, genius horn in the New VVorld. Like Leonardo da Vinci, genius of the Old Wiorld, Frankfin had an inquiring mind, truly majestic in scope, that gave the world a wealth of practical ideas which in very great measure advanced civilization. He was America's first great world figure. Franklin was the Godfather of tl1e United States, having written the "Albany Plan of Union" in 1754. As elder statesman his advice was constantly heing sought hy Wiash- ington, Jefferson, Adams, Madison and others in the United States. His judgement was sound and prevailed i11 many crises. Twenty six years older than George Washington, he lived only a year after the inaugura- tion of the first president in 1789, to the ripe old age of eighty-four. Every year of his life was fruitful with accomplishments. Publisher, scholar, educator, citizen, soldier, inventor, scientist, phi- losopher, business man, diplomat and politician, statesman, super-sales- man, patriot, man of God and niclnhcr of the human race who loved his fellow man. All of these were areas in which the author of f'Poor Richard's Almanacw excelled. 1n the words of Philip Freneau, an early American printer-poet: "W'hen monarchs tumble to the ground, successors are easily found: But, matchless Franklin! what a few can hope to rival such as you, Wfho seizld from kings their sccptered pride, And turned the 1ightning's darts asidef' On this 250th anniversary of the birth of Benjamin Franklin, we, the class of 1956 would like to dedicate our yearbook to this great American, after whom our school is named. 3 m-.q,,,,,.-"- UPPER SCHQ MR.

THE STUDEN T COUNCIL The Student Council this year brought about many innovations to Franklin School. A Coke machine, Senior Day., disciplinary and dress regulations were just some of the new ideas made possible. ln addition, dances were sponsored, 1-llaritable drives held and regulations were passed making life more pleasant for both student and faculty member at Franklin. A PARENTS ASSOCIATION MEETING THE CROWD THE SPEAKER TEA THE PRESIDENTS j, ' a 2 f E THE WJOURNALISM CLUB The Journalism Club of 1956 carried on a long tradition and this year produced, under the guidance of Mrs. Elizabeth Youman, one of the finest volumes of the Franklin Press in the school's history. Establishing another Franklin First. the Debating Club, under the leadership of Mr. R. J. Elliott, proved that they meant business by pre- senting an Assembly about Benjamin Franklin. Invited to participate in two tournaments, they declined for they felt as this was their first year, they were unprepared. Next year they will compete. 20 21 THE CURRENT EVENTS CLUB 49,1 An old favorite, the Current Events Club, under the auspices of Mr. S. King held lively discussions on current world problems, every Monday. The perenially popular Science Club was tl1e largest club in Franklin this year. Includinq' a trip to the Brookhaven Xational Laboratories in their program, Mr.l-Carson continued his policy of stimulating the scien- tific minds of the Franklinites.

After defeating Bedford Park Academy, the team slumped and never quite managed to win another game. BASKETBALL TEAM With an unusual season-no wins and all losses-the team still managed to keep fighting up to the end. With many of the members back next year., we have great hopes for the future. N 1 1 , , I. V. BASKETBALL TEAM The best team of the year-according to winnings. Defeating most of their opponents the boys went happily through a great season. They owe Mr. Davis an especial vote of thanks for his help. TENNIS TEAM Playing a lesser important role in the Franklin sports program, the Tennis Team had a good season. Winning three out of five matches, most of the members will be back next year for an even better season. .
