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.

ON MANY BELOW ZERO DAYS WE l6l WALKED THROUGH THE SNOW FORT FREEPORT TO OUR "WINTER WONDERLANDH - THE FORT ON THE HILL U1 Any similarity between the plan of this book and the Army of the United States, in this country or abroad, is purely intenf tional, and We can't imagine how it ever happened.

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 BIG PARADE FROM THE REVIEWING STAND.

Marie, the daughter of Krushina, is not in love with the simple Vashek, the son of Mieha, to whom she is hetrothed. But the one whom she really loves turns out to he the true son of Micha.

Through the persistence of Margaret Antrim and Jack Sellke, it went off with a bang! With the help of the construction crew, industrious students transformed the F. H. S. gym into a veritable winter wonderland. At seven o'clock sharp, our future Madeline Carrols and Clark Gables took their respective places around the igloo to compete for the coveted baby prize. Half an hour later we heard Odell Klipping grumbling in his beard because he had to wear a tuxedo to be master of ceremonies at the style show. In the music room people rolled in the aisles in appreciation of Bill Lee's subtle humor. Back in the gym, Houdini the Second made our hair stand on end with his superfmagic feats, and the commissary department furnished lots of luscious food, Then we got "hep" to the music and cut a few rugs before the final highlight of the evening. At eleven o'clock Bob Lundquist and Rea Chambers were crowned king and queen and so ended another F. H. S. carnival. The big moment arrives. MARG AND JACK MADE THE ARRANGEMENTS WHILE MRS.

Opening the season with four weeks of hard earned bumps behind them, the "Pretzels" entertained the bucking Rams of Dubuque. Swimming on a mudfsoaked Held they swamped our Dubuque friends in a touchdown avalanche, 2645. The following week on a snowffrozen field our valiant men tangled with West Aurora in a punting duel, with the Freeport eleven bogged down 7f0. Next our stoutfhearted lads invaded the realms of West Rockford only to be tamed by the powerful West High juggernaut, 1943. fContinued on page 104.j IT,S TOUGH FOR ENEMIES WITH LUTZ AND BRUCE ON THE LOOSE 51013 "fonsey" LlCOtf477lly "Lundy" HMick" "Tree" aw!

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' State center. 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. "Keep your shirt on."

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.

VARSITY 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 51093 Danny Dan Ferguson "Poker" "WefWe 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 51103 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.
