AUTOGRAPHS UPPER: SENIOR CLASSQ LOWER: JUNIOR CLASS THE CLARION 15 JUNIOR CLASS The junior class of Freeport High commenced the school year with a total of twenty-seven members. Velma McAllister and Virginia Heath left school but these vacancies were taken by Leslie Robertson, a returned vet- eran, and Alma Hilts from New York. Of the twenty-seven, eight enjoy the sport of basketball. They are as follows: Marilyn Brown, Georgia Merryman, Manon Smith, Lawrence Lunt, Lewis Groves, Archie Dennison, Richard Pulk and James Winchell. Representing our class in the stu- dent council are Laura Smith, Ruth Merryman, and Lewis Groves. Eight pupils have maintained hon- or roll standards for the year. Laura Smith, Jean Blanchard, Marilyn Brown, Frances Estabrook, Betty Litchfield, Florence Litchfield, Rich- ard Pulk and Maxine Webber. Maintaining a perfect record iso farl are Georgia Merryman, Laura Smith, Lewis Groves and Maxine Web- ber. Extremely proud are the Juniors in the fact that they donated approxi- mately twenty dollars, which was more than the donation of any other room, to the Junior Red Cross. The Junior Prize Speaking Contest will be held sometime in May. Due to the fact it hasn't occurred yet the the names of the winners cannot be placed in this report.

Of course this is our first year of high school and as yet we haven't had much of a chance as to plays etc. In the future I am sure we will succeed in plays and other activities as I know there are those with talent in our class. In closing may I, on behalf of the Freshman class, give many thanks to all our teachers who have helped us so much through our first and per- haps most difficult year of high school and may we extend a welcome to the eighth grade of grammar school who will take our place in the coming school year and wish them the best of luck.

We certainly hope that by next semester the gymnasium-auditorium will at least be near completion for we have suffered crowded conditions long e- nough at dear old F. H. S. Students who now attend Freeport High are gaily greeted each morning by the various colors of the institu- tion's interior. Mr. Livingston our new janitor did a nice job putting on the paint. Also may I add that he is a very tidy janitor. Athletics are once more in full swing after a lull during the war years. Once the new gym is built don't be too surprised if the basketball teams win a few of the tournaments in the years to come. Ralph Dennison '46 ll' Q HP ii TO MY WAY OF THINKING To my way of thinking the reasons we didn't win as many basketball games this past season as We should proper facilities such as showers, lockers, etc., and second, the low ceil- ing and small floor. These conditions hinder a team greatly when playing on a larger floor. For example, on a low ceiling court there are very few long shots taken and so one tends to neglect that part of defense which tells in the losses of rebounds on big floors. Some may think the reason we didn't win more games is that the team wasn't good enough. Well if this is true, how could we have improved without proper playing facilities. To my way of thinking the boys who will play on the new court will have a decided advantage over those who have played in the old gym. Nathan Allen '46 IK Bk HF if MEDITATIONS The credibility in the reality of God, the universe, and even life itself vaguely enters the individual's mind at various periods and is meditated upon, yet always the result is perplex- E6 20 THE CLARION ing and confusing. Some believe the human mind should concern itself with the superficial and the clearly manifest, letting the inscrutable and recondite phases of our mortal life go unconsidered. That is a matter of opinion. I have often asked myself why and for what purpose man is here, to be born, to live, to die and to be com- pletely forgotten in a comparatively short time. Our solar system consti- tutes an extremely minute fraction of the planets in the universe. If there be a system of order, Ccomparable to, yet not life as we know or realize ith on the other planets then, the magni- tude and variety of the systems can not be appreciated or spanned' by us since we think in terms of our own intimate system. Ever since the human race has been created, ideals and standards have been set up by which mankind has striven to live. We always have fal- len short of our ideals and probably always shall do so. Everyone of us commits sins for which he is criticized by his fellow sinners. This critical nature of man, which seems to be somewhat -of a human propensity, is itself criticized by others. Valuation of and by our contemporaries develops into and indeed becomes a "Vicious Circle"! Our own imperfect, confused, and intricate life has inspired the worship of God Who, in the minds of men, is sublimated above all mortal limita- tions. This love and fidelity to our God help to keep us from digressing from our standards and consoles us in our earthly sorrows. But, as some may say, it is not for us to question the sublime powers which govern the universe and "they that dwell therein". Yet, one cannot help but ponder this question, can one? Maxine Webber '47 lk 42 Ik 4' "Mrs. Sprague's Little Boy" On a certain day every fall, a sales- man named Robert Sprague comes to call on the students of F. H. S., the purpose of which is to sell magazines. He usually starts off by telling a corny joke about some teacher. Then he feeds us some smart sales talk stopping every now and then for a joke or two. Although he spreads a lot of humor he really puts his point across and the students pitch in and sell a lot of subscriptions. The school gets certain prizes according to the number of subscriptions sold. There- for, everybody is happy. Mr. Sprague has become a well- known friend of Freeport High, and we hope he keeps up his annual visit. Ralph Dennison 46 Ik ik Ii if THE SCHOOL ORCHESTRA When the Parent-Teacher Associa- tion organized last fall, one of the first things they mentioned was the need of a school orchestra. With this in mind, they procured Mr. Dulfer of Brunswick to speak to the organiza- tion. Soon after Mr. Dulfer agreed to come over and give lessons on any instrument to prepare pupils for the orchestra. We now have quite a few taking lessons. There are .twenty-one taking on various instruments besides some who wanted to get a foundation on piano first and are taking piano les- sons from Mrs. Dulfer. We 'now have two Qc-larinets, ten violins, two trom- THE CLARIO N ' 2 1 bones, five trumpets, one cello and one Xylophone. One thing that our orchestra lacks to make it complete is a drummer. We wish that someone would start taking lessons on the drums. We hope that when the orchestra starts play- ing for the school plays and other school entertainments there will be other pupils who will Want to join us. We want to thank the P. T. A. for getting the orchestra started and also the School Board and Mr. Fowlie for backing them up. We hope that they won't be disappointed in their project. Ann Macomber '49 PK Pk ik wk PHYSICAL TRAINING We have physical training twice a week. If the weather permits we go out of doors, if not, the classrooms suffice. These periodsare thirty min- utes long and everyone goes back to classes feeling more like studying. We are divided up into four groups --freshman and sophomore girls- junior and senior girls-freshmen and sophomore boys-junior and senior boys. The leaders of these groups are as follows: Girls Freshmen and Sophomores Janice Capen Virginia Hall Barbara Chandler Betty Williams Juniors and Seniors Marilyn Brown Grace Noyes Georgia Merriman Beryl Crone Boys Freshmen and Sophomores Kenneth Wilson Robert Dorr Robert Brand Teddy Coffin Alden Bennett William Lunt Donald Wade Juniors and Seniors Lewis Groves Donald Clement Leslie Robertson As soon as the gym is built we will have our exercises there, unde-r the direction of a physical training in- structor. We will soon be entering our last term of the senior class here in Free- port High School. From that time on we will look back over the years we have spent together and think them the best in our young lives. It has been the fruits of our labors that now bring this class of 1946 to its graduation. Perhaps there have been times when we've wished that we could have had more modern equipment to work with as well as better facilities for sports. Our class has realized that these have been war years and that everyone has to make sacrifices. This was our war to win and our side won it. I don't think that anyone has heard one of us seniors putting up too much of a kick because we've had to go without some things. Now we're about to part and go our separate ways, yet, we'll leave happy, knowing that the classes from now on will be able to enjoy a new gymnasium. We hope that this new era of peace will make your school year happy, so that part- ing may be so sweet. Jacqueline Brand '46 at IF li if LIBERTY While the composer of this essay admits in all honesty and truthfulness that he has not experienced liberty to the extent that the Puritans, colonists and negroes, haveg he has in several respects experienced the benefits that liberty has provided. sf ft 22 THE CLARION What is liberty? Is it the release from our daily obligations to others and to ourselves? No, your answer! Then, is it freedom from the demands of militarism and aggression? Yes, is the reply. Very well, then, can we say that liberty is the absolving of all those elements that would constrain us or that would restrict us from doing as we wish? We wish peace to be up- on the earth but are we willing to sacrifice our youth, manhood, plea- sures and desires to obtain a "hollow" peace? No, we want a sure and last- ing peace which will prevail despite the attempts of tyrants to overcome the world. No one man can design a lasting peace. It will take all men working together and trusting one another. We have obtained liberty but do we have peace if we use that liberty to satisfy our own desires? Will we as a nation be punished if we forget those who are less fortunate. I think we will and are being chastened by the Almighty for abusing that liberty that was obtained only through the courage, determination, and charac- ter of our forebears, who shed rivers of blood that we might have what was meant for all but is enjoyed by few. Truly we should be grateful to the men and Almighty God who created for us this priceless heritage! Leslie Robinson '47 if if 1' 8 THAT IRRESISTABLE FORCE More exquisite than the beauty of the roseg more refreshing than the trite expression, "coke"3 it is an im- mortal "something" which cannot be destroyed by the technicalities of the present day world. This abstract 'phenomenon which en- ' it IB velopes all, even the stoic and unemo- tional, is as old as this human race. What is it, you ask? Nothing more than the "breath of spring." Maxine Webber '47 214 114 if 41 ROAD TO THE FUTURE Buds in spring striving to blossom into beautiful flowers are unnoticed: they are crushed and hidden from sight by a larger creature who is too busy to see the loveliness and great- ness of these small things. Such is the generation of todayg ma- ny a great man will rise out of the common lot of people if he is allowed to, and not pushed aside by the al- ready great men of the higher class. Let this man show what he can do and he will accomplish wonders in the world and for the world. Ambition is seldom wholly dead in any man and, given the chance, he can conquer the most intricate prob- lems. With encouragement, he can find the road to a future with a prom- ise. Marilyn Brown '47 PF vt lk lk WHY MEN MUST DIE Five thousand years ago, or three thousand years before Christ, man was in a paleolitic or cave man state. During the rapid advance to his pres- ent stage he left behind many traces that are evidences of his evolution. Archeologists, as well as naturalists, say man has progressed from this "animalistic" stage to his present stage with great rapidity. CThat is, compared with the process of evolu- tion in other animals.D It is discovered that in prehistoric days other forms of living things have taken the same THE CLARION 23 trend or magnititude, then after inhab- iting the entire world for a short per- iod of time, suddenly became extinct. Possibly they took another form and could no longer be recognized as the original. Perhaps a universal change affecting natural conditions on earth was the reason for disappearance. At any rate it is natural to assume the possibility of some similar fate for man. We have already seen a great war in which millions of humans died. A- tomic energy has opened new and un- limited channels for destruction. There is now in existance a gas so deadly that, if turned loose it would burn the entire surface of the earth wiping out all living things. Our minds are great to have achiev- ed such wonders of science, yet per- haps if they were not so miniature we would see a little beyond our own sel- fish desires and know more perhaps of what could'be expected in the fu- ture. It is easy to conceive an end to the human race, perhaps in the not too far distant future. Even a million years is a short time in the hours of eternity. Clarence Libby '46 TO OUR TEACHERS lf to the office, you are sent On account of conduct I mean: Mr. Kassay is sure to be present: At lecturing, I understand he's quite keen. ln American History Mr. Giles is a wow! To find out the way slaves were used, I-Ie can tell you just how. Mr. Small is the boys' basketball coach They all think he's just grand. Did you see what the boys did this year? They won games to beat the band. I understand Mr. King is quite clever at carpenter work To make so much furniture and things, When his students become men of the world Let's see what their ideas can bring. Miss Snowman teaches Home Ec To show us how to cook and sew, She has given us many suggestions A vote of thanks, to her we owe. At Algebra, Mrs. Merriman is an ex- pert That, we all will admit.

"Read all about it. Gambler murdered!" Lee stood breathless, her heart pounding, for she had access to all the facts involved in the case. All of a sudden she could no longer think, her mind was a blur. She sank back into a chair to mull over the happen- ings of the past few hours. It didn't seem quite possible. How could she, Lee Berry, be involved in a murder? She began thinking back to the earlier events of the day. It was a beautiful summer morn- ing and soon after she had arisen, the telephone gave a shrill and impatient ring. She hastened to answer it, onlyto find that it was her sweetheart, Terry, who was in a gay and happy mood. He was calling to see if Lee was inter- ested in a picnic lunch at the beach, which, of course, she was. After say- ing "goodbye" to him she strolled lazily to the back door, went out into the small and attractive garden of flowers to work at her daily task of watering the flowers and pulling the weeds from them. She hated to hurry, but of course she must. Terry would call for her in a couple of hours. Soon she finished. She walked dreamily into the house to other things she must do before leaving. It would be so nice to be on a picnic with Terry. She hus- tlcd around and "prettied" herself up and was wearing a particularly charming sun dress when she saw her date jump out of a snappy green roadster and come up the walk. He was really quite handsome. Lee was proud of him, but then, Lee was a good match for him because she was a very pretty girl with wavy, auburn hair. After saying "hello" to Terry, and "goodbye" to different members of the family, they were off. When they reached the lake it was exactly noon. The sun was bright and a light breeze was blowing. There were only a few people scattered here and there on the beach. Terry got his boat from the boat house and for sev- eral hours they sailed around the lake, enjoying the beautiful scenery. After tiring of boat riding, they lay on the beach, just studying the different types of people who passed by. All went well until they got hungry and it was then they realized, very suddenly, that they had no lunch. Lee had packed up a very delicious lunch in a basket and had been in such an excited state that she walked out and left it on the table in the kitchenette. lt was too bad, but it offered them a good laugh, neither of them had ever heard of a picnic without a lunch. They decided after some time to country a little farther, ride into the to find some sort of road-side eating place. It was here that Terry entered fight, trying to save a into a bitter group of gamblers from murdering each other. There were guns and knives and then a man was killed. Wfho did it? No one knew. Somehow as the crowd gathered, Terry escaped. He and Lee hurried away. They f'ouldn't be involved in this. They couldn't be. The next thing Lee knew, someone was shaking her violently. As she roll- ed over, she heard her mother say, "Come Lee, you'll have to get ready for school now." Lee was only a young high school Wk Ml- ze , THE CLARION girl with a vivid and somewhat wild imagination. She had to be, to have such a dream. It was, nevertheless a simple way to get out of such a pre- dicament. She looked at her mother and said, "Gee, I'm glad I woke up."

William Lunt '48 F 8 I U GENERAL SCIENCE PAPER ON "GASOLINE" Gasoline has helped the education of Americans thru the way of trans- portation. The busses and automobiles that carry children back and forth to grade and high schools and even to colleges of different states are good examples. With gasoline in daily heavy use, people like to travel over good roads. It pays a town or city to have good roads on which to drive. It means an increase in business to stores, restaur- ants, hotels, etc. in that vicinity. You may take the bus to a city a few miles, you may drive your car to the theatre, or to some other place of amusement where you ordinarily X would not wish to go if it were not for the comfort of an automobile. The combination of gasoline, ve- hicles, and good highways has made the world a better place in which to live. The electric and steam train bus- iness has suffered. Most people pre- fer the speedier and cleaner travel by private transportation. Gasoline, thru airplane travel, has joined America with all other parts of the world and has made all states of our own country seem much closer to one another. Now, one thinks noth- ing of going by plane from Maine to California, Texas, or Florida but in days not so long past it was a much dreaded event to attempt a journey of anything over fifty miles.

Our kin would tell us of once bright colors, Of bright rafters, and the weather-cock, that hovers On the height, and sways, for now, and ever I after. What is it that makes beautiful things de- cay, What once was a swanky barn, to lean and sway, Is it not true to life, of past and present, But what makes life go up and then des- cend? "note: The material for this poem, I gathered from an old weather-beaten barn, that be- longs to my uncle. Any similar reference to any other barn, standing, or in the con- dition of my unc1e's barn, is purely coin- cidental. Lewis Groves '47 ll It 1 It THE DUCK HUNTER There was stillness in the air, As a man with light brown hair Was perched inside a duck blind on the bay. His gun came upg he triggered, And he got 'em, so he figgered, But he soon found out that they had flown away. When he started home that day, The tide had gone from the bay, And he had to wade through mud and muck. So he went home sad and weary, On this day so dark and dreary, Without the glory of shooting a single duck.

Everett Weed '47 'll Pk Ill if LIFE IN THE SEVENTEENTH CENTURY When we look at pictures of seven- teenth century lords and 'ladies, or see them in the movies we think of them as being like ourselves, only much more elegant and attractive. They were undoubtedly more ele- gant in dress but in other ways they differed greatly from us. You would be very much surprised if you could observe the vocabulary and the table manners of the highest social classes. The difference in standards would become still more apparent if you could join these "elegants" in a box at the theatre in London or some other theatre. When the room grew warm one after another would begin to wriggle and scratch and sometimes a neatly carved ivory claw was used to reach parts of the back not easily reached by the human claw. Bathing was uncommon, the extent of the daily use of water being to wash the hands and to get sleep out of one's eyes. Soap was a luxury and bothersome, too, so they covered up what ever might offend, rather than to remove it. This was accomplished by the use of perfume. The people of the seventeenth cen- tury rarely used a tooth brush or vis- ited a dentist. Nothing is more apt to make one forgive radio announcers for interrupting the programs with remarks about soaps, tooth powders, listerine, etc. than a study of the act- ual state of hygienic affairs among the seventeenth century "elite", If we our- selves do not need to be told of such aids to cleanliness, We ought to be glad that the gospel of personal hygiene has acquired a loud speaker. Richard Tryon '48 41 at at Ill INDIAN TALE The Indians, as we know, were an ever present menace to the early set- tlers. One of the settlers was Joe Weare and it is said that he lived in the vicin- ity of Freeport. He and the Indians were far from friendly. On one occasion Weare was split- ting rails near his home when six Indi- ans approached him and asked if he could tell them where Joe Weare lived. The quick-witted old scout replied in the affirmative and offered to show them the personthey sought as soon as he had finished splitting the log on which he was then at work. When Joe had driven in his wedge and had THE CLARION 29 the log well opened, he asked the Indians to help him by pulling on each side as he drove the wedge. The Indi- ans obliged. Then Weare, by a dex- terous blow of the sledge, knocked out the wedge, causing the seam to close like a vise on their hands. This left them at the mercy of their terrible enemy, who, as he gave each a death blow with his axe, shouted, 'Tm Joe Weare."

But if our teams should lose a game We do not consider it a shame, For we take every game as fun Plan to win the very next one. We always take a bus to go I 'Io other towns through rain or snow And if the weather gets in our way We cancel the games till another day. Some gyms are big and some are small, But we don't mind the size at all. A good sport takes it on the chin If he should lose he still can grin. Archie Dennison '47 FRANK BUCK Yes sir, he's a friend! I can't get along without him. He's long and thin rather narrow. He's green in face. But you can forgive him for that be- cause he turns into everything you desire.

No matter which he is backed up by he is a friend to everyone, and he has a lot of brothers and sisters that work just as hard to help a man out as he does. Lawrence L.

'46 i il l 4 THE PARIS MOB In Paris soon after the Bastille had fallen, Madame Frances Jacques and a small band of middle aged women were gathered in her cellar. "We must have bread!" cried one. "We are too poor to buy any." "It is all the fault of King Louis and his Marie Antoinette!" cried an- other. "The aristocracy and their privi- 30 THE CLARION ies! They aren't worth the words wasted on them", grunted an elderly woman. "If we didn't break into the stores for food we should starve! There's many a brick I've crashed thru a bak- ery window". The day was October 4, 1789. Madam Jacques stood up and rap- ped for attention. "Ladies, the men are marching to- night for Versailles to bringj back Stupid Louis. Arm yourselves with clubs, pitchforks or any other weap- ons you can find and we'll march be- hind them. " They all jumped up and hurried out in search of weapons. They met at ten o'clock and started on their way to Versailles. In the outskirts of Paris they were joined by hundreds of other women bent on the same purpose. They marched all night, not stopping for rest. The next afternoon they reached Versailles. They met the men coming back. "Why are you returning?" asked Madam Jacques. Q- .1 , at "We couldn't get through." This reply made the women more deter- mined than ever. They pushed on, and meeting a squad of soldiers with an artillery gun, they trampled over the soldiers and seized the gun to take along with them. They were near the center of Ver- sailles when they met the soldiery who had turned back the men. "Humph!" Only a band of howl- ing old hags"! exclaimed one. "Bah! They can't do any harm! Let them pass." They passed by with the soldiers laughing at them, marched to the palace and seized the King and Queen and triumphantly carted them back to Paris. A short time later many of this same mob of women were walking thru the streets of Paris crying, "Tickets for sale! See the King and Queen guillotined!!" Uneasy lies the head that wears the crown.

All of these girls were attractively dressed in evening gowns of pastel shades. Ella Holmes and Lucille Dill served as prompters and very good ones at that. To our charming soprano sing- er, Alma Hilts, whom we are very grateful for her splendid performance goes the admiration of the Junior Class. Our sound effects man, Richard Pulk, although with only one rehear- sal, was a great help and a good sport. The sacrifices and untiring efforts of Mr. Everett Giles and Miss Barbara Snowman, the coaches, were deeply appreciated by the play cast. To show their gratefulness, the cast presented two beautiful Reynolds pens to them. We shall always remember our days in the Junior Class by the happy hours spent in the preparation and production of our play and we, the class of "47", hope our last play for Freeport High next year will be as satisfactory. - Betty Litchfield '47 wk 42 Sk if SCIENCE OPEN HOUSE PROGRAM Freeport High School March 1, 8 P.

Finally after what seems like an eternity, the bell rings and we go puffing up the stairs, making ready for the next class. As we crawl into bed that night a slight moan is uttered, "Oh, my poor aching back".

He was white with fear , And his nerves began to twitch, Then a cop with a cauliflower ear Reached up to pull the switch. The prisoner thought of the past And of his former wife. The switch came down at last, And he got the shock of his life. Q Ralph Dennison '46 SCHOOL Mr. F. H. S. ,..,.4....., . Miss F. H. S. ...,. . Mr. Senior ....,..,. Miss Senior ..,..., Mr. Junior .,...
