The band whxch cheered them to vlctory and the songs and yells of the rooters all dxd so much to make our record brrght Two strong debatxng teams brought other honors put Freeport on the map Thls team was made up mostly of Senlors Our class can boast of an honor which other classes have strxven for and lost We are proud to be the State Champnons May other classes keep that honor brxght and shmmg Our class play was a success and the proceeds will help to make our Annual Polaris the best ever We are pubhc spmted and as an evldence of thus subscnbed to the Y M C A buxldmg fund Semor year IS not all frohc we have a hlgher average fo1 home readmg work than any other class Now we have fimshed the tasks we had before us and other classes wlll follow m our footsteps We are leavxng the Freeport Hxgh School wxtlx 94 m the ranks but we w1ll always remember our classmates, teachers and frxends We appreclate all they haue done for us and we also thank the cltlzens who have supported us 1n all of our undertakmgs It IS for the class of 1916 to be here dedicated to the task before them that from our example they take mcreased devotxon to the school to whxch we were so devoted that they here resolve that we have not labored so far xn vam and that the glories of the Freeport Hlgh School and the Class of 1915 shall not be dlmlnlshed or perlsh from the earth Marguerxte Doyle Hlstorxan 1915 . . , . . . . . 1 Y .

Do you know that only one half of the debatmg team were Semors?

And you may believe wxth all your heart and soul that the jumors were not consxdered weak members of the team Truly th1s class IS well prepared to follow the Semor Class of 1915 and they wxll not disgrace any prevlous class but wxll be a bright and shmmg example to all those who follow JUNIOR F MEN Football Allen Colvm, Glenn Holmes Track Lynn Peters, Russell Ryan George Kleckner, Glenn Holmes Clark Brubaker Basket Ball Glenn Holmes JUNIOR MONOGRAM MEN Clark Brubaker, Charles Luell Manon Grey Georgc Kleckner I I 1 Q 1 ' V - , . , . . 1' :, - . . . . 1 , Q , ' ' . . , . .

Never has the- school had such a winning team. Out of the twenty games played, eighteen were victories for the F. H. S., the other two games being lost to Beloit, Wisconsin, and Ottumwa, Iowa. In almost every case the game was won by a safe margin of points and in some cases by an overwhelming score as in one instance when Freeport ran up 70 points to Lane Tech s 6 The team was small and light but exceptionally fast At the tournaments at Rockford and Decatur Freeport was always the lightest and smallest of the teams entered but when it came to speed there were no other teams in their class But speed alone did not win for them their battles it was the rare combination of brains and ability that made them the best team in the State To get this ability they had to go through the harde t of practice Each and every night from the first call for candidates to the last practlce of the season there were at least fifteen men ready to report This spirit was a great factor in making a win nmg team for no team can be succe sful without good and willing material to practice with At practice the first squad always knew that they would be obliged to fight hard to win from the second, and many was the practice when the score was in the balance. Too much can hardly be said about the second team. They were, in a few words, there at all times, ready and willing to take the knocksg always with one view in mind, that of making the first squad better by their efforts What school could not have a team of the first calibre with the help of such a second team At the sectional meet at Rockford and at Decatur they showed their worth by winning the first few games all by themselves and thus saving the first team for the harder and final games Another great factor which helped in making a winning team was the way in which the students and the general public supported the games not only in Freeport but at the games away from home A spirit more loyal than that shown by the sup porters of the Freeport High School could not be given any organization The entire season was a financial success as well as a success in turning out a championshrp team As a whole the past season stands out prominently as the most brilliant and succe sful in the history of the F H S The following summary shows the remarkable record of the season SUMMARY OF THE SFASON December 28 At home December 31 At home january 8 At home january 15 At Belvidere january 22 At home january 29 At Mt Carroll February 5-At Sterling February 9 At home February 13 February 26 February 27 February 27 February 27 March 5 At At Beloit At Rockford At Rockford At Rockford At Rockford home State Tournament at Decatur March 12 At Decatur March 13 At Decatur March 13 At Decatur March 20-At home March 27 At home S Alumni New Trier Mt Carroll Belvidere Sterling Mt Carroll Sterling Alumni Belvidere Beloit Batavia Dixon Rockford West Aurora 13 West Aurora 13 Granite Clty 19 Carbondale 14 Springfield 13 Lane Tech 6 Ottumwa 36 ..- . ............................................

INTERSCI-IOLASTIC edge which stood them in good stead in future meets, Peters' time in the mile was 4:47, while Ryan ran the half in 2:10. If. ll. S. Scored four points, placing tenth in the meet, which was won hy Lewis Institute of fliivago. After the meet a banquet was served at which time the medals were presented. 79 THE ANNUAL POLARIS-1915 CORNELL MEET The first gold medals that were ever pulled down by the F. H. S. teams were won May 8 when Peters and Ryan won first in the mile and quarter respectively Ryan took the lead from the start and won the 440 fifty yards ahead of his nearest competitor The time 54 4 tied the interscholastic record After a start in the third row Peters fought his way steadily to the front and after a violent sprint finished an easy first. The races were slow owing to the hard wind which blew down the straight- away F H S was not represented in the relay owing to the fact that the team had to catch a train UNIVERSITY OF ILLINOIS MEET Another laurel was added when Peters took second in the mile at the University of Illinois meet on the 14th of May 'lhe finish of the race was most spectacular In the last 220 yards our blond pacer passed up three men and gave the winner a race for his medal The time 433 insures many firsts for the F H S next year Having strained a muscle in the Cornell meet Ryan was unable to place at Champaign As a reward for his labors Peters secured a fine silver medal BELOIT FREEPORT DUAL MEET In the first dual track meet of the year Freeport easily defeated Beloit High School by the score of 79 to 05 The surprise of the meet lay in Kleck ner s winning first place ln all the events he entered namely the 50 110 and 200 yard dashes Holmes made a strong showing in the shotput and discus SUMMARY Holme of F H S handled the weights in fine Event 50 yard Dash 100 yard Dash 220 yard Dash 440 yard Dash 880 yard Dash 120 H Hurdles Places Record Kleckner B 2 Francis Kleckner B 2 B 3 Kleckner Hodel B 3 24 Ryan Hodel B 3 523 Peters Ryan B 3 2 0 1 B 2 hurling where he easily outdistanced Red Connolly Beloits star athlete Ryan and Peters had but little difficulty in crossing the tape first in the quarter half and mile Brubaker Huss Francis Liggett Hill and Hodel completed the Orange and Black team and all placed in some event OF EVENTS Places Record Peters B 2 B 3 Holmes B 2 B 3 41 ft 4m Holmes B 2 B 3 98 ft Sm B 1 B 2 ss 5ft 2m B 1 B 2 Lxggett 18 ft B 1 Brubaker B 3 9ft 10m Event 1 Mile Shot Discus High jump Broad jump Pole Vault STAGG MEET Peters again performed as usual at the Chicago good Ryan was thrown out in the start of the University meet running a steady race and giving 440 Had it not been for this his previous speed the champion a hard run His time was unusually would have warranted a high place OREGON FREEPORT DUAL MEET In no meet of the season did F H S score more , ,,,, g,g 6 '. ........... 3,g, 4.38 '. .... 3 , 3 , ...... 11 .............. 5 , 3 , .. .

THE ANNUAL POLARIS-1915 F00fBa11 For the second season of football, after that sport had been given a relapse of a number of years, the past has been a brilliant one in all respects. The hardest games that could be obtained were scheduled and our team came out a full worthy foe in each one The team although somewhat light was as able a group of fighters as has ever represented the F H S When weight was an important factor m a game they displayed that never say dle splrlt and this alone offset the disadvantage re sultmg from their lack of weight The speed of the team was also a notable feature So fast was the backfield that in many game they would run completely around the heavier opposition without even one of the opposing players touching the runner But the backlield would not have been so successful in scoring had there not been a good solid lme in front of them continually opening up holes for them to come through The lme though heavy was very fast and its great feature noticeable in all games was the way in which they got through the enemy s lines and broke up thelr play Every man on the entire squad throughout the whole year showed the spmt that made the team what it was and the season a success They had in all cases the interests of the team at heart and let nothing stand in the way. Rain or shine, day in and day out, a squad of twenty-five men could be seen going through a practice of from one to two hours The season started with a rush when the F H S battled the school alumni The High School eleven was very rough and this game offered a very good chance for the coach to get a good lme on his men The F H S was defeated by a score of 6 to 3 but only after they had put up an excellent fight The next game on September 26 with Crane High of Chicago resulted in a victory for F H S They put up a grand exhibition of the game against their much heavier opponents and after a hard gruellmg light of holding their own against odds the Orange and Black won by a score of 19 to G In the majority of the following games the F H S were victorious although of course in some cases they ran up against an opposltlon that defeated them Out of the eleven games that were played during the season the F H S were victors in six and tied in another wlth a nothing to nothing score With this season all a thing of the past everybody boost for a bigger and better season next year SUMMARY OF THE SEASON September 19-Alumni at home H S Opponents September 26 Crane at home October 3 Dixon at home October 17 Janesville at home October 24-Englewood at home October 31 Dubuque Iowa away November 7 Beloit Wisconsin at home November 14 Joliet away November 21 Belvidere at home November 26-Cfhanksgivingj Michigan City Indiana at home ', . . .. .......................,........ .F. . . 3 6 - , . ........,................,...........

For the benefit of those who have not formed their opinions we print some of the prize answers. My ideal man is perfectly grand looking - keen just out of college clothes. Sentimentally Helen Phillips. My ideal man must be of military build six feet tall from Somaliland and wobbly. Yours dramatically Ruth Capron. My ideal man must have soulful eyes a Gibson profile and wear spats. Your modest friend Naomi Winters. My ideal man must not be shorter than I am and have an unconquerable will. Yours, Julia Wheat. I have put much thought on your question and I have come to the conclusion that there are no ideal men. Such things are as impossible as adventures are. Thoughtfully, Irene Schofield.
