Franny and Zooey by: J.D. Salinger

Franny and Zooey is composed of two sections, which were originally published in the New Yorker magazine as two separate short stories. The first story or section, "Franny," was published in the New Yorker in January 1955. In "Franny," Franny Glass meets her boyfriend Lane Coutell for a football weekend at his college. They do not get to join many of the festivities, though, because during their first lunch together, Franny begins to have a breakdown. She tells Lane that she is sick of the phoniness at school and of the egotism of the faculty. She has quit the play she was in because she is embarrassed about what she feels to be acting fake. As she gets worked up, she reveals that she has become interested in the "Jesus prayer," a continuous prayer meant to cleanse one's spirit. Lane mostly brushes off Franny's concerns until she faints on the way to the bathroom. As he is helping to revive her, she begins to speak the prayer.

J.D. Salinger

Presidents in ‘61

In this year, Dwight D. Eisenhower left office in early January and John F. Kennedy took office in late January. During JFK office this year the economy has been good and prices are very affordable and reasonable. The citizens of this great country are in love with our current President, John F. Kennedy. He is a great man and an even better leader for the United States of America. The only issue that John F. Kennedy is facing is the fact that the Vietnam War is going on and he doesn’t want to lose a lot of American soldiers in this war.

1961 TV Show

The Dick Van Dyke Show has been a huge hit throughout the US. This comedy starring Dick Van Dyke (Rob Petrie), Rose Marie (Sally Rogers), and Mary Tyler Moore (Laura Petrie) is about how Rob Petrie, Sally, and Buddy write for the Alan Brady TV Show for Brady’s brother-n-law Mel. It’s a very humorous and entertaining film. I personally love this film and think it is well thought out and a great film for anybody of any age. The Dick Van Dyke Show will be loved for many more years to come.

  • 1961: The year a record was broken, hearts were broken, and a man’s life was changed forever. Roger Maris will forever be known as the man that took Babe Ruth's record. The man that changed the record books. Maris was hated, booed, cussed, and generally abused by the press and fans for his chase of the most well-known mark in all of baseball: Babe Ruth's sixty single season home runs.
  • Maris began the year as just another hard-hitting Yankee. If anyone, his battery mate, and media darling, Mickey Mantle was scheduled to be the one to take over the spot on the all time homer list. "Mick" was loved by the fans and the press, Maris was not. In fact, whenever Maris hit one of his home runs, he was quickly reminded that it was only because Mantle was behind him that he even saw a good pitch to hit. In fact, Maris spent his entire record setting year cast as the villain in a media-soap opera, while his good friend, Mantle, was seen as the good guy whose own teammate was trying to steal his thunder.
  • Maris suffered greatly during the season. He actually lost his hair and had his and his families lives threatened. The most heartbreaking part of his 1961 saga came after his record breaking long ball. Commissioner Ford Frick decided that Maris' record would not stand against Ruth's because it was not done during the same number of games. The record was followed by the most famous asterisk in history. Maris could not take the pride he deserved in his great achievement. Speaking in 1980 he said: "They acted as though I was doing something wrong, poisoning the record books or something. Do you know what I have to show for sixty-one home runs? Nothing. Exactly nothing." What should have been one of baseball’s greatest achievements became one of its saddest stories.

Famous Actor
  • Paul Newman was born in January of 1925. He has grown up to this day being a star actor in different movies. The movie, The Hustler, which he starred in include Jackie Gleason and Piper Laurie. He played as Eddie Felson in this film. This movie put him as a nominee for the Best Actor. Earlier this year he won this year and this is what he had to say, “To be an actor, you have to be a child.” Paul Newman is a great guy and an even better actor still to this day.
  • During this year we have had many people create very interesting things. The first thing made was Ken, a boy doll that is Barbie’s boyfriend. This gadget has been a hit for little girls who loved playing with Barbie, now they have another. Another cool gadget is the Yo-Yo has been introduced to the world. It was thought of from a Greek engraving from 500 B.C. The last cool thing from this year has been the invention of an electric tooth brush. It feels funny on your teeth because it moves for you and is rechargeable so we don’t have to buy new ones.
