SOCCER Following in the success of last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s squad, our soccer team proved strong and able again this year. With the aid of Coach Gober and heads-up playing by all the boys, the team finished the season strongly, with a 4-0-2 record. The final standings placed us in a well deserved second place.

MRS. MARTHA WEINGARTEN For four years, Mrs. Weingarten has been the faculty advisor to the staff of the FRANKLINITE. She has actively enthused with her editors even over some of their wilder creations, patiently prodded the photographers for “More candids!”, and has donated much of her personal time to the point where she might show up at one of the weekly meetings bleary-eyed for lack of sleep because at three in the morning she remembered a quote was missing for page seven, and she couldn’t really rest anyway because she was worried we wouldn t have the Forecast finished by the deadline, and oh, had the soc­ cer candids come in yet? Having enjoyed this pleasure (!? ) for four years, Mrs. Weingarten has decided to pass the privilege on to someone else and let the 1968 FRANK­ LINITE stand as the last (and best, we hope) issue she advised. There is so much we can say and yet what more can we say than the most sincere “Thank you, Mrs. Weingarten.” The Editors
