6 FRANKLIN ACADEMY HTGH SCHOOL ANNUAL
It has been a very difficult matter to publish this year's issue of the 'Post'
because of the late date on which the project was put under way, but, thanks
to the faculty, we have at last succeeded and hope that this issue is as good
as former ones.
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
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 Legencl of the Finger Lakes
Many years ago in the Mississippi Yalley, there lived a giant. He was the
spirit of the Great Father of the VI'aters. 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
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:
