The business men have responded with fine spirit to our call for adver- tisers, both in town and out. There are two great ways in which you can help our annual publication: one is that you buy copies for yourself and your friends: another is that you patronize our advertisers, and thus encour- age them to advertise another year. There have been very few indeed, who have declined to aid us. We are well satisfied with the results of our eiforts. There has been one great help this past year in our school activities: the faculty. The school has been greatly improved by the efforts of our Princi- pal, improvement which we all greatly appreciate. VVe are sorry to see our teachers leave us, but we are equally glad that a number will remain for the next term. VVe are especially grateful to Miss McConnell for the help she has given us during her short term as teacher, and we wish, without excep- tion that she might be with us next year to continue her work. The year has been one of marked success along scholastic lines, which fact, we feel, is due to our excellent faculty. NVe wish to express our appre- ciation of their encouragement and support in all school activities. The basket ball teams have been successful during the past season. VVe hope that the base ball teams may follow their example. . The library is now open on Tuesday evening, as a reading room, due to the kindness of the Parent-Teachers Association, who have provided two gasoline lamps for that room.

The Indians were his friends and he loved them, but not as much as he loved his rivers and lakes. So when the Indians sailed their canoes on them and took the fish and birds and fiowers from them, he became angry and pronounced a curse upon the Indians. In order to punish them he decided to use a magic spell. Ifvery time he touched an Indian with his left hand it would cause him to sink into the ground. .-Xfterwards his spirit would come forth in the form of a spring. Now one day the news came to this giant that far toward the land of the Rising Sun. was a mighty ocean which brought people from :mother world to this land. They told him that a certain tribe of Indians, called the Iroquois, were friendly toward these strangers. This made him very angry and he determined to take the life of the chief of the Iroquois. lint the flood lfairies would not allow such a terrible thing to happen. So one of thent flew to the Iroquois and told them of the danger that threat- ened their chieftain. Immediately five of the boldest and best-loved war- riors of the tribe started for the Sunny South to seek this giant and plead with him for their chieftain's life. After traveling a long way they came to a range of mountains. They climbed for many days and finally reached the stunmit. As they started .to descend, a beautiful woman appeared. She said she was the Spirit of the Mountains and consented to help them, providing they would do exactly as she bade during the rest of their journey. They promised and this is what she told them: FRANKLIN ACADEMY HIGH SCHOOL ANNUAL 9 The Spirit of the Waters and Nature had once had a quarrel, during which Nature had struck the Spirit of the XVaters on the arm. It had hurt him exceedingly and made him weak in this certain place. On this spot alone would the blow of a mortal man have any effect. She would tell them where this weakness was, and as only his left hand held the magic power, they would thus be enabled to save the life of their honored chieftain. They thanked the Spirit of the Mountains very much and were going on, when she said. "But listen, the hand will still hold its magic power, so you must take it where it can bring no harm to the people of the land I love so much. Take it with you on your return and throw it into that mighty ocean, of which you speak." They continued their journey and at last came to the Mississippi Valley. Here they soon found the giant. After living here many years watching and waiting for a chance to strike the fatal blow, that chance came. At last the danger was past and they felt that their chieftain's life was safe. But the hand was very heavy and it was a long time before they reached the mountains. It took them many years to bear the hand across them and in spite of all their efforts to reach home, they became worn out and had to lay the hand down. As they had been gone so long, a search party had started out to seek them. Soon they came to the skeleton of the hand. In place of each finger was a beautiful lake. They named them, Seneca, Cayuga, Canandaigua, Keuka and Oneida, after the brave warriors who had saved the life of the Iroquois chieftain. -Margelia Phillips, '23 A Birdseye View of Prattsburgh As one stands upon any of the hillsides surrounding Prattsburgh, a charming view of the peaceful village is obtained. In late spring, the scene in the valley below, is especially pleasing to the eye. Though glistening foliage hides the larger part of the buildings from sight, the spires of several churches are visible. Close beside the highest of these, can be seen the tower of Franklin Academy, one of the oldest schools in the state. It is as if Nature herself were trying to conceal all things except those which stand for that which is highest and best in the community. Across an expanse of beautiful green meadow. on the other side of the valley. a sparkling stream wends its way southward, beneath the over-hanging branches of massive willows. 10 FRANKLIN ACADEMY HIGH SCHOOL ANNUAL There is no smoke to mar the deep blue of the sky or to deprive the leaves of their freshness, here. The occasional passing of a motor-car alone re- minds one of the fact that this tranquil village is really a part of this bustling twentieth century world. Indeed, one can but' think of those quaint New England hamlets, of which one reads, as he takes a last look at the serene landscape. -Catherine Cornell, '23 My Dream 'Twas midnight in Prattsburg, Not a street car was in sight, And the streets were brightly lighted, For we had electric light. The pavement reached from curb to curb, The movie-shows were crowded, The ice-cream shops were full of girls, And not a brow was clouded. The department stores were open wide, It was a bargain rush, Potatoes were three dollars per, And all the farmers flush. 'Twas then that I fell out of bed, And made an awful thud, I opened up my window, And the streets were full of mud. -Ruth C. Munson, '24 A Good Bargain Old Bill Lamson stood by the gate and watched jack Hill come up the long driveway. As jack came along, Bill stood and wondered what he could want, but after a little he suddenly exclaimed, "I know what he wants! He wants to buy my horse. I hope I can make a good bargain because Nancy is old and I want to sell her." As Jack came nearer, Bill grinned and said, "Good morning, jack! Fine day, eh ?"' FRANKLIN ACADEMY HIGH SCHOOL ANNUAL ll "Yes," replied jack, "It is a fine morning. I thought I would drop in a minute and see what you ask for old Nancy." A crafty smile passed over Bill's face, as he answered, "VVell, I'll tell you. I don't want to sell her very bad, but I'll sell her for a hundred and fifty dollars." "Say, Bill," said jack, "you must think your old horse is made of gold! Whoever heard of such a price for an old plug like that? You must be crazy. Why, I won't pay one cent over a hundred for her." The smile left Bill's face as he answered. "I guess it's you that's crazy! Why, Nancy's worth two hundred this minute. But since it's you, I'll knock off twenty-live dollars. Now, what do you think of that ?" "I don't think, I know," said jack, "that I won't pay one cent over a hundred, and if you can't sell her for that. I don't want her." As jack said that, he started for home, and Bill, seeing his bargain lost, told jack to wait a minute, that he wanted to figure a little. jack came back and Bill seemed to be lost in a deep mental calculation, but he spoke at last. "Well, I will lose on Nancy, if 1 sell her at that price, but I guess I'll let you have her. You have been pretty good to me lately. so I'll call it a bargain at a hundred." As Jack again started for home. the smile again appeared on Bill's face and slapping his hands together, he exclaimed, "Ginger! NVhat a bargain! XVhy, Nancy's only worth about fifty dollars." -Joseph Horton, '23 An Imaginary Page from the Diary of Robert Burns April 12, 1784-1 went to church at IO A. M. Enjoyed the service by Rev. Carleton very much. After lunch, took a ramble in the fields. It was beauti- ful. The foliage is just beginning to green out. Saw a strange bird-was not able to determine what it was. Have decided to name my last poem "The Cotter's Saturday Night." April 13-Took my usual morning walk to the lake. Arrived just as the sun was risinglin all its glory. Wrote a short poem for which I have not decided on a name. I went to a lecture at Oakleyfs Hill in the afternoon. Here I met Albert Townsend, whom I like very much. He is so genial and warm-hearted. April 14-Gilbert and I did a little work around the farm this morning. While plowing. I upturned a mouse nest, and now the poor thing will have 12 FRANKLIN ACADEMY HIGH SCHOOL ANNUAL to build it all over again. This inspired me to write a poem, "To a Mouse," which is one of the best I have written yet. I saw Jean this afternoon. She is as beautiful as ever. We went for a little row on the lake. April 15-Gilbert and I are getting very well settled on the farm now. I haven't done so much work in years. April 16-I met two jolly tramps this morning on my rambles. Had quite a talk with them. Then I went to the lake and wrote "The Jolly Beggars." It is my best yet. April 17-Helped Gilbert all the morning. Went to another lecture at Oakley's this afternoon. The subject was "Sincerity." It set me to thinking deeply. April 18-Werlt to the mountain this morning. It was quite a climb to the top. Found a nest of eagles under a huge Hat rock. I missed my lunch and did not get back home until well towards night. -Charles Higby, '22 Latin Department EPISTULA AD MARCUM Porsenus salutem Marco dicit-: Non audivi ex te, cum venirem ad Prattsburgum et sum solitarissimus sine te.

Secretary. 16 FRANKLIN ACADEMY HIGH SCHOOL ANNUAL W'e, the Class of "Sixteen Freshmen," entered High School a year ago and was looked upon by the other students as small, insignificant and of very little importance-but at the close of the year we have proved to them our size, intelligence and ability. At the very beginning of the year we observed how sickly and under- nourished they all looked so one of our members immediately entered Dr. Bachman's ofhce for study and then went to the Bath Hospital and had an operation and back in school in three weeks to prove to these super- intelligent High School students the value of surery. Then when we wanted a party over in Lounsberry Gully a little Freshie had to get cars to carry the rest. Many of the Boy Scouts are Freshies and some of those in the Upper Classes have joined so they might play base ball with our "Never Beaten T eam." XVe have proved to them all the year our efficiency in Algebra, Biology and Latin. How far superior we have been to the classes of former years is very evident by the way we have followed our motto, "Progressus." Our estimation of the different classes is that the Seniors are small, the Juniors ----- Cnot worth mentioningj, Sophomores have big heads and in closing, "Lest you forget," we took for our Class Flower, the Forget- Me-Not. -Phyllis Keyes. The Junior Class The class of 1922 was organized with Ralph Jones, as President: Ruth Sturdevant, Vice President, and Ida Murphy, Secretary. The Class Colors are yellow and whiteg the rose being chosen for Class Flower. The motto "Tout vient a qui sait attendref' Next year the Senior Class will prove to the world that big things can be done in spite of small numbers. ' -Ida Murphy.

FRANKLIN ACADEMY HIGH SCHOOL ANNUAL 17 The Sophomore Class of '23 Motto--"Be what you seem to be." Flower-The white lily. Colors-Green and white. Do you remember when you entered High School, that first morning, how you felt that your brilliance just seemed to shine forth? That's the way with all Freshmen, I guess. Really, we thought there never was a bunch of brighter shining stars than we, and it took our elder classmates a great deal of their precious time to keep our feet on terra Erma, that first year. However. we have found that a large amount of our surplus knowl- edge has disappeared. during our Sophomore year. We reorganized our class early this Spring and the Freshmen soon fol- lowed our good example, while the juniors with really too few for a class, have taken much longer to wake up than the Freshies. At our first meet- ing, we re-elected Catharine Cornell, our worthy President, making Hil- dreth Olney, Vice President. and Germain Crossman, Secretary and Treas- urer. At a later meeting, we decided to have a picnic. So seeing an opportun ity to arouse the Freshmen and Juniors, we invited them to join us. Some very kindly offered their cars, so we were able to go into the country. The party was a great success and all declared that they had a very enjoyable time. Now we are striving with our studies to have sufficient counts to become Juniors next year and Mlisto quod videmur esse." -Esther Blood. Senior Notes Owing to the large class last year and to various other reasons, the Senior Class of 1921 is very small and consists only of two members, Hilda Downey and Howard Hatch. Both belong, also, to the Training Class, so it is needless to say there has been more work than fun this year. The Class has had no separate organization, but has joined the Training Class. The motto and class colors are also the same. and the exercises will be held together this June. The Seniors are so very few. They are so wild and funny, But Franklin life will lonesome be Without their smiles so sunny. -Hilda Downey. 18 FRANKLIN ACADEMY HIGH SCHOOL ANNUAL BY THESE SIGNS SHALL YE KNOVV THEM Bluffing French Translations and getting away with it.-Hobart La- Grange.

Dunn, '21 We were most fortunate this year in having Miss Zardilla Sanford as Training Class teacher. She came here well recommended and has cer- tainly proven herself worthy of the recommend. Mr. Johnson, inspector of Training Classes from Albany, was well pleased with her work and Mr. McConnell said that he had never known all the papers sent to Albany to stay. This is the record made by the Training Class this January. W'e feel that this is due to the training received under Miss Sanford's instruction. We organized in the fall with nine members.

FRANKLIN ACADEMY HIGH SCHOOL ANNUAL 21 Q N 1 'am -Alton Thomas, '22 THLETICS this year in Prattsburg High School have been a decided success so far as building up a winning basket ball team is concerned. The basket ball team has established as good a record as most, and far better than many, teams in the country. It has made a good showing against most of the teams in Steuben and surrounding counties. The financial part of Athletics were also handled successfully. XVe were aided by the High School Athletic Association and board of Education. Without the aid of these our basket ball team would have been a decided failure because we could not afford to rent a hall for the purpose of play- ing basket ball and we could not think of playing out of town games. Next year Prattsburg should have a good fast team, a team composed of more experienced players and a team which should be as good as any high school team in the county. We sincerely hope that the people of the community will give this team the support they desire by attending the games. THE TALE OF THE TEAM We had a lot of fun this year, A playing basket ballg We quit in early springtime Tho' we began in early fall. VVe had some quite exciting games, We won and lost a few: NVe got into some arguments And had a scrap or two. But now it's getting warmer, And baseball's in the airg We have really started playing And we're beating everywhere. -Herbert Clark,'24 22 FRANKLIN ACAlJlfMY HIGH SCHOOL ANNUAL Girls' Basket Ball Team HE girls' Basket Ball team was composed of listher Blood, center and captaing l'hyllis Keyes and julia Peterson, forwards, Millicent Potter and Constance Bardeen, guards, and Ruth Munson, side center. The side centers were not used, so Ruth went along' as substitute center. Catherine Cornell and Harriett Hatch, substitute guard and forward respectively. XVe had three regular games. :Xt Naples we played the Girl Scouts and defeated them hy a score of 14 to 9. Refreshments were served in the scouts rooms by the scouts. The second game was with Avoca, on home court, and again we received a victory of but one point. The game fur- nished much excitement, the score being 12 to ll. After the game refresh- ments were served by our girls' team and the boys' second team, for the Avoca teams, at Doctor Munson's home. The third game we met with defeat at Avoca 7 to 11. They admitted that the court was smaller and that all ceiling balls didn't count. Both sides made ceiling balls, but, as we were not used to the court, we lost. Refreshments were served after the game at the school. Mrs. Munson went to Naples as chaperon, while we went to Avoca in cars. The team wishes to thank Miss Rayton for her encouragment and direction without which our girls' team would have been impossible. 4 -Ruth Munson "lf lvanhoed the bonny brae, And Athelstaned his tunic new, And Friar Tucked his food away, Then what, oh what, would Roderick Dhu?"-lix.

There are two patrols. the Tiger and Beaver, of eight boys each. Each patrol elected its own officers. The Beavers appointed tiamaliel Conine. Patrol Leader: and Hildreth Olney, assistant Patrol Leader. The Tigers elected Hobart LaGrange, Patrol Leader: and Howard Donley, as- sistant Patrol leader. Vrooman Higby was elected secretary and treasurer of the Troop. The first hike was taken near the town. Signalling was practised and two shacks were built, one by each patrol. Another hike was taken to Keuka Lake, where a fine time was spent in swimming and playing a ball game with the Elmira Y. M. C. A. boys. who were camping there. The Elmira boys won by a score of ten to eleven. In April 1921 Mr. G. McConnell was oppointed Scout Master. as Mr. Bisbee had moved from town. The Scouts organized a baseball team electing Howard Donley, Captaing and Vrooman Hibgy, Manager. The first game was played at Hammond- sport when they won by a score of eighteen to four. The second game was played at Penn Yan, and was won by a score of twelve to one. Atlanta was the next victim, being beaten by a score of twenty-two to eight on the Atlanta grounds. On Decoration Day root-beer and pop-corn were sold. netting the boys nearly twenty-five dollars. On Field Day the Scouts sold root-beer. pop- corn, peanuts, cigars, gum, and lemonade, clearing tive dollars. The Ham- mondsport ball team came to play, but rain interrupted the game in the second inning at which the Scouts were ahead. The Scouts are planning on many trips this summer, and hope to make their movement a success. Z4 FRANKLIN :XCAIJICMY Hlfill SC'l'lUUl.

We showed "Superior Affection P" FRANKLIN ACADEMY HIGH SCHOOL ANNUAL 27 The Lost Railroad Ticket One day a very Heshy country lady came up the long, narrow platform in Newburgh. She carried two extraordinarily large suit cases. Taking these to the ticket window with her she bought a ticket for Paris, a medium-sized city about fifty miles from Newburgh. She then seated herself near the door. The train soon came. She went out to it and with much difiiculty and with the aid of two conductors and a hrakcman, managed to get into the car. She sank exhausted into the first empty seat, placing one suit case in the empty seat behind her and the other at her feet. The beauty of the country interested her greatly and as she had never been on a train before, she was wholly absorbed in her own pleasures. She failed to hear the conductor call "Ticket," As she was thus engaged she felt a slight pressure on her arm. Paying no attention to this, she felt another touch. Turning, she saw the conductor. "XVell, what do you want ?" she demanded. "Your ticket, please," he answered pleasantly. She thrust her hand into her pocket. After taking out several articles, she discovered that the ticket was not there. She searched through her other pocket, but in vain, the ticket was not there. At last she turned her face to the conductor and said, "I can't find it, probably I dropped it when I was getting on. It won't matter, anyway, so long as I bought it." "I can't let you ride unless you give me your ticket, madam," replied the conductor. "'Well, how under heavens do you think I can give it to you if I can't find it P" she retorted, "I am sorry madamf' said the conductor, "but if you can't give me your ticket, you will have to pay me the money or get off the train.', "I have paid my fare once." she answered, "and once is enough." "Do you mean that you are not going to pay for your ride ?" said the con- ductor. "We do not run a 'free lunch counter' nor intend to let any one ride without paying for it." "'W'ell, no one has asked for anything oi? your old 'free lunch counterf " she-said. "I have paid my fare once and that is enough." I With this the old lady turned her back to the conductor and gazed calmly out of the window. E "N ow look here, madam ,can't you be reasonable? You can see very plainly that you cannot ride unless I know you have paid your fare,"' said the con- ductor. . "l shan't pay any fare twice and that's Final," retorted the old woman. "Then you will have to get off the train at the next station," the conductor said. ' "1'll not get off the train until I get where I want to go. You are nothing but an old robber, and if you don't keep still I shall report you to the superin- 28 FRANKLIN ACADEMY HIGH SCHOOL ANNUAL tendent of the railroad and have you discharged. Ol You mean old thing you, now go on and mind your own business. You know I have paid my fare. All you want to do is to get a little extra money to put in your own pocket." Wiith this she burst into tears, and turned her head toward the window. "You are to get off the train at the next station, madam, and remember that." replied the conductor. He then gathered the rest of the tickets and left the car. Suddenly the train stopped at a small town and the conductor, followed by two burly brakemen, entered the car. "Madam, are you going to pay your fare or get off ?" asked the conductor. "I am going to do neither. I have paid my fare once and that settles it," she replied. "Then you must get off," said the conductor. "I-lere, John. take that suit- case off that seat back there, and Pete. come here and help me get the lady OH' the car." She protested vigorously, but they finally got to the steps. She then thought of her other suit case and said she would have to get it. She would not let one of the men get it. As she picked it up, she saw the lost ticket under it. She notified the conductor and said, "I hope you will think I bought my ticket, now," and rode to her destination. -Merlin Dumm, '23 History of Franklin Academy The time had arrived when people wished their children to have a better education. It is for this reason that the Franklin Academy was built. It was in 1820 that the work was begun. That same year two subscription papers were circulated: one for funds to erect a suitable building, and the other to raise funds for the support of the school. Two years later, the build- ing was started. It has often been said that the real reason for the Academy was that at an exhibition in one of the schools, things were said and done that did not satisfy the prominent men of the community. judge Porter, who was a graduate of Yale, and the most highly educated man in the community, said, "I wish from my heart we had an academy." There were rules that were made for this school. One was that the Sab- bath must be strictly kept g another, that no one should be admitted who could not read correctly and write legibly. Instead of five days for a school week, there were six. Saturday afternoon being devoted to rhetorical exer- cises. The Academy was opened October. 1824, with Rev. William Beardsly as principal, with a salary of S400 per year. Each student, as long as he was a member of the school, was required to take part in rhetoricals at least once in two weeks. lt was hoped that this rule would continue to exist. FRANKLIN ACADEMY HIGH SCHOOL ANNUAL 29 In 1877, the female department was established. The poor and worthy students were admitted without tuition. Before the larger towns in the coun- ty had schools, Franklin Academy was at its glory. It was educating chil- dren from our county and even from Pennsylvania and Ohio. There also was a young men's Lyceum, which was organized by the ettorts of William Pratt and O. F. Fay. It was an organization of literary character, meeting once a week for eight or nine months, and closing with an entertainment. Attirst there were only nineteen members, but it grew until it numbered about one hundred. On the roll of honor were the names of Guy H. Mc- Master, Martin Pinney, W. S. Cheney, W. B. Pratt, Thomas VanTuyle, judge Dennison, W. B. Boyd, Paul C. Howe, Henry Skinner and C. G. Higby. In the year 1868, on March 17, Franklin Academy became Franklin Academy and Union Free School. Almost the first recollection of Old Franklin is the exhibitions, which were started in the thirties. They were held at the end of every school year. Plays. recitations, orations and essays were given at these exhibitions. About this time the school had a boarding department. In the basement was a very attractive little dining room: the living rooms were on the ground floor, and many rooms for boarders and roomers on the second and third floors. If, on a warm day, the students were very good, they were allowed to study on the upper veranda. If very, very good they could go down under the large trees. There have been improvements made. Some of these are: the library, which at present is opened to everyone on Tuesday evenings, from seven- thirty until nine o'clock: the science laboratory, which is a great help, and a second Primary department. In these days we have books which are better adapted for school use than when Dear Old Franklin was first started. It seems to me as if each and every one who is attending, or who has attended, should do all in his power to keep up old Franklin's standard.'s all help! -Bertha Gillett, '24 30 FRANKLIN ACADEMY HIGH SCHOOL ANNUAL Wanted A By the school-to know why Reginald Thomas is contracting so many new ailments that it is necessary to call at Doctor Munson's house.
