THIS IS A RECORD OF
EREEPORT HIGH SCHOOL
IN TIME OF WAR. THOUGH
MATERIAL ITEMS FOR THIS
BOOK WERE NOT ABUNf
DANT, THERE IS NO
RATIONING OE MEMORY
TO THE BOYS ....
of Freeport High School who would have received
their diplomas with us, but now are gone to serve their
country, we dedicate the 1943 "Polaris" To them-
as to other boys of war generations came a challenge,
changing them overnight into men.
They had been
"Careless boys at play
But when the Bugles sounded war
They put their games away."
With pride and love we look to those
"Who took the khaki and gun
Instead of cap and gown."
May they win success, honor and everlasting glory.

HERE'S OUR STORY, WHAT THE DOUGHBOYS HAVE TO SAY
The perfecting of perfect paragons of pupils
and preparing them to become the public
of tomorrow, plus the perplexing points of
pupil propriety are the problems placed
before the professors.

Herehy we salute our superior officers! H
Mr. Shafer is our Division Commander. Mr. Mensenkamp, our 'isupcru superior,
makes the rules and regulations of the camp for the inductees in the ranks of education.
Miss Barclay or Mr. Kloos, the keepers of the respective Hguardfhousesf' can he
scen any morning Hnding the bail for those nefarious inductees who were A. W. O. L.
the previous day.
In our oiiice we have a very skilled U. S. O. entertainer, namely Mrs. Kidd.
To go further into this institution or camp of learning we have the censor depart'
ment Uinglishj which hands down this word of warning "Unless you have a reason,
never use a comma."
The inductees in the history section have been heard to complain about not being
able to keep up with the map changes due to the exploits of a certain European villain.
Because of the fuel shortage one of our former history teachers, Mr, Mikesell, caught
cold at one ofthe student council dances. Literally speaking, he was caught in the draft.
The Commissary Department under the heading of amiable Mrs. Rucker, has been
doing its part in observing meatless Tuesdays in the mess hall.
Much to the pleasure of the inductees the P. X. was furnished with music via the
juke box for six weeks.
The Physical Education classes have been toughening the boys and girls for their
duty in the armed forces. The athletic instructors have employed objective tests and
commando practice in preparing the boys for their rigid army training.
Our U. S. O. unit made up of the inductees in the dramatics and music depart-
ments have been providing entertainment at home, thereby preserving tires and gasoline.
The business classes, made up of Senior and junior battalions, are preparing stuf
dents to be more effective in their war jobs, while the propaganda department under

THE BIG PARADE
Janice fone, two, three kickj Abels had really something to kick about. Ask Don Erdf
mier who was the proud possessor of black and blue shins .... Jim Anderson at the
Girl Reserve Hay-Ride was taught the newest step by siren jean Hermsmeier .... Ask
Mr. Brown at the Patio Theater his opinion on the recent halffprice ticket sales by Usher
Ken Breymann .... jo Cooper is a versatile gearfshifter when some one else is driving
with one hand .... Bill Ditzler's hand is quite calloused from hanging on the shirt tail
of the person ahead of him when the band marches .... Gloria DeVore is a pretty
popular girl in all fortyfeight states-So we hear .... An adolescent spirit is still shown
by Charlotte Boswell as this year a red sign was posted at her front door reading
"Chicken Pox" .... We have come to the conclusion that Helene Chiames goes by the
old adage, "She who opens her mouth to give the right answer will never get the gong."
. . . Elizabeth fwhirling dervishj Seely has the unusual ability of stabilizing her equi'
librium at all angles when she does her solo dance .... It has always been a question
among us juniors as to which of the Womelsdorf twins takes the blame for the cartoon
sketches of our teachers that mysteriously circulate throughout the classes .... What
was the strange rhythmical beating heard throughout the gym the night of the Carnival?
It couldn't have been our Junior King's QErpy Kieckhaeferj knees knocking from stage
fright? . . . Was that a look of surprise, expectancy, or horror on Hair Tonic Jim
Vaughan's face when magician Bob Wurtzel cut .Iim's tie in half? . . . Who are those
two good looking blondes we see walking through the halls together? It couldn't be
"Cuthy" and "Queenie" could it? . . . Royal fOh, let's skip itj Liscom has been seen
wearing his hat at odd hours or could it be he didn't have time to put it away? . . .
We hear that John Sturtevant is going with a Powers model or is it Ginny? Anyway
there has been a powerful change .... Some of the I. L. fellows called Emmy, Joe,

The operetta was splendid and muchfpraisecl everywhere. Then as the final event of
the Spring, everyones' thoughts turned to the "May Festival." The theme of the festival
was American songs and among them were "Oh, Susanna" and "Ezekiel Saw de Wheel."
Everyone in the chorus, the treble clefs and A Cappella sang k'Rise, Men Courageous,"
a stirring march. The seniors, particularly, carried away a lovely musical memory
from this, their last Festival.
Miss Haselton and Miss Sheetz deserve lots of orchids for the professional performances
they turned out this year.

With the Home Economics Club we usually associate fragrant aromas, latest style
frocks, and the strenuous problems of child care. These activities, although found in
the club's program of former years, have been replaced to a great extent by a present
need. In cooperation with the Red Cross, the club has centered its plans in Red Cross
work. Under the direction of faculty and Red Cross supervisors, splendid progress has
been made in providing comfort for our armed forces.

Hoping for a fast comeback the "Pretz" next admitted the "Rabs" from East
Rockford to our Moseley Street bowl. Outfgaining their opponents two to one, our
hardfighting hefmen were forced to succumb to a 14f7 defeat.
Apparently forgetting to sleep the following week our Freeport eleven forgot
about a football game Friday night and played while they dayfdreamed, losing to the
Joliet Steelmen 7f6f
"This has gone far enough," the boys decided and as evidence they drummed a
shellacking of 33fO to some huskies from Peoria in a non-conference game.
Following up their potent attack of the week before, the undaunted Freeport
eleven crushed the Big Eight representative from Elgin, 14f6.
Turning it on in the last frame of a bruising tussle, the upfandfonward Pretz
battered their way to a 14f7 win over the soilfstained Tomcats from East Aurora.
Riding on the glories of their past three victories the valorous lads from Freeport
encamped in La Salle for their last game. However, much to their disappointment, the
La SallefPeru backs carried a "C" ration card compared to Freeport's "A," thus
smothering them to the tune of 2OfO.
Although far from a perfect season the Freeport lads were giving their all to win
and not for one moment did they ever say die.
When it came time for the Coaches to choose an AllfConference team, George
Roddewig was their unanimous choice for center. When the players were being named
for the AllfState team, George's fame again stood out and he was placed as the All'
These players know well the meaning of sportsmanship and now they will carry it
over into a greater battle, only this time their Alma Mater is the dear old U. S. A.

Qur valiant little Pretzelettes opened their season hy playing their hearts out for
their coach, Mr. Patrick, who was leaving them. They displayed their skill well to
upset West Aurora 1Zf6.
The following week, playing as though they had huttered their fingers instead of
the hread, the Freeport eleven suffered a 13f6 sethack at the hands of West Rockford.
The next week rolling around, our heroic men tried vainly to stage a 4th quarter
rally, pulling short to their East Rockford foes hy a 2043 score. QCont. on page 107.1

After two weeks in which our hustling lads further polished themselves, they
dealt a 2544 drumming to their opponents from Elgin.
The followin week, la in? as if the were tr in to drive East Aurora from

the park, they overfpowered their enemy to the tuneful measure of 1942.
Going into the final movement, our impressionfmaking huskies, running as though
the foe were mice, pounded La SallefPeru with a 1442 heating.
Never to he overlooked, these boys displayed a fine caliber of football and ran an
impressive season. Let's hope they keep up the good work as Heavies next year.

This year's team will he long remembered as the "Unpredictahle Pretzf' for no'
body, not even Coach Dave Dupee, knew how his cagers would operate each night.
The "Pretzels" dropped their first game to Dixon 3540 as Coach Dupee experimented.
The Freeport squad houneed right hack the following evening and swamped Sterling
3442. The next week found a great team from Canton on our court and this "sweet
sixteenufdestined memher captured a 3962 thriller from our hoys.
Freeport opened its conference schedule with a 3527 victory ovcr a gangly joliet
tive and was developing into a great hall cluh. However the following week the Dupee
clan lost to a scrappy West Rockford team in a typical RockfordfFrceport clash. The
next evening Duhuque defeated our weary hoys 36123. The following week was spent
in intensified drill and the reward came on Friday night when Freeport defeated one
of the outstanding teams in Illinois, Ivioline, hy the count of 3025.
THESE WERE THE BOYS ON THE TEAM--ON THE TEAM--CN THE TEAM
Don Best Roger Wieland
On New Year's Eve the "Pretzels" copped a 3866 overtime struggle from La Salle
Peru. Elgin, the future conference champs, nosed out the "Pretz" in the last thirty
seconds of play, 3564. The E. H. S. boys, dazed by the Elgin defeat, were tripped by
an inferior East Rockford team 17f15 the following Friday. The team regained its
stride and hurdled over Dubuque by 20 points to avenge an earlier defeat. East
Aurora eked out a 3480 victory over the "Pretzels" Then West Rockford repeated
a previous victory and trounced us 3720. At last our boys broke loose and slaughtered
the Incas of La Salle 61f28. Next week the Dupeefmen trekked to West Aurora and
lost a 3946 thriller.
HEARTS, HOOPS, HIPS, AND HEADACHES FLIPPED WHEN HUSTLING
Making up for an early season defeat the "Pretzels" conquered the "Rabs" of
East High 4825. The team finished the regular season by losing to Belvidere Z-O25 in
a game that was rumbleftumble all the way.
The "Pretzels" burned up the nets in their first two regional games by trouncing
Galena 77f13 and Orangeville 4243. They then took the regional championship by
defeating Stockton 57f27. A speedy Rochelle outfit caught the "Pretz" on an off night
and squeezed out a 3160 victory in the last ten seconds of play by a freak shot.
The season ended with 12 victories and 13 defeats but this is no indication of the
quality of this fine team. Had "Lady Luck" just nodded their way in several games
the story would be entirely different.

FROSH - SOPH BASKETBALL
Because of transportation difficulties and the discontinuance of organized Froshf
Soph competition hy the Big Eight Schools for the duration, this year's 'Tretzellettesl'
were forced to play local teams. This meant stiffer competition for Coach "Spider"
Wilcox's cagers in most cases, for they faced larger and older teams than themselves.
Handicapped further hy the lack of experience, this team had a hard time hreaking into
the winning column. However they won the admiration of every fan hy their pref
dominating courage and fine team spirit.
The "Little Pretzu lost their first two games hut rehounded hack in the third conf
test to polish off a tall Forreston team 22f16. They then settled into a rut and dropped
five games in a row. The last of these was a 28f25 thriller to East Rockford. In their
ninth contest the "Pretzellettes" hroke loose and nosed out West Rockford, 25f24. After
losing two close ones, the Pretz avenged the previous defeats hy East Rockford and
handed the "Rahs" a 45f43 trouncing in the final game of the season.
Now that this fine team has assumed the role of varsity they are ready to carry
on the fine character, true spirit of goodfsportsmanship, and great traditions of previous
F. H. S. teams.

Every now and then there gathers in 211 a motley collection of beakers, burettes,
hottles, Bunsen burners, and aspiring botanists and hiochemists. Our time is spent in
puzzling over the perplexities of protons, polymers, and P H's, or marveling at the
multiplicity of molecular manifestations. The aspirations of our association include
hetter acquaintance among members and the promotion of the preparation of promf
ising physicists and budding biologists for future fame. We investigate the scopes of
our individual interests and increase our general scientific knowledge by observing the
accomplishments of our colleagues, hoping only that our zealous industry can compenf
sate for our numerical deficiency in making our organization successful.
