unior Class History
It was really very hard for us to believe that we
had become juniors: that we had gone through the
sufferings of a Freshman, lived the life of a Sophomore,
and at last were juniors: but if time is taken to look
back and see what the class of '17 accomplished, one
will realize what a class it was.
The chief virtue of this class was their extreme
activity. Can you imagine going to any High School
function without seeing the Junior class well repre-
sented? The only place we can think of is the Senior
class party: and probably some Junior or Juniors
were there, if only in the Domestic Science room.
The greatest action ever shown was on the basket-
ball Hoor. Were any of the players juniors? Only
four out of the five men on the first team were.
M. Patterson, Historian Captain Langenstein, Mulnix, Gilbert and Biersach,
certainly represented their class exceedingly well.
Besides these men on first team, there were several juniors on second squad. It will
probably be an All-Senior team next year.
Although represented by only one junior in debating, the ability of that one,
George Lipscomb, is unusual. He bids fair to become one of the best, if not the best,
debater F. H. S. ever had. He entered the oratorical contest at DeKalb, as Freeport's
representative and won Hrst place by a wide margin. This victory entitled him to
enter the Final of the state contest at the University of Illinois, where he won
state championship in oratory.
"The Private Secretary," given by this class, certainly set a standard for future
class plays. The activity of the class in general was here apparent. As for the actors,
we are told Raymond Billerbeclc remained at play practice after falling out the window.
It surely was a difficult stunt and we all appreciate Raymond's do-or-die spirit. We
also heard that Paul Schoeffel sat in the rain for two hours straight to obtain the
voice assumed in the play. The other members of the cast were equally good. If
the Junior class of next year have any trouble with their play, we are certain the
cast would be delighted to give them pointers.
And then came the "Pre-Exam jubilee." This new method of entertainment
was wholly original on the part of the Junior class. Why, even the Seniors compli-
mented us, admitting that it was superior to anything they could have done. Lastly,
came the junior-Senior banquet, the largest affair of the season. For full particulars
apply to some Senior who was present and we are positive you won't be disappointed.
There is no need to take more of your time telling you of this class in particular,
for can't you, after reading a few of these activities, appreciate the way in which this
class went through the junior Year?

Sophomore Class History
Considering our class from all angles we are
proud to place it parallel with our honorable ancestry.
We feel its importance and need of sobriety and sedate-
ness. The Freshmen enter inexperienced and eager to
become acquainted with high school life. Their atten-
tion is detracted from their study periods by the
appearance of a fellow sufferer who has lost his way in
the great oasis of the F. H. S. The junior's life is one
of eager anticipation of their coming comedy, or
tragedy, as Seniors. They are busily engaged with
the stage setting. The voice of the Seniors sings in
low strains, "The Last Rose of Summer." Their
blooming period is over and even now some of its
largest leaves have withered and are cast aside. Thus
consider and you will find the Sophomores in the
blossoming period of intellectual development.
N. Burnwood, Historian
Our greatest achievement for the year was our Oratorical Contest. The winners
of the contest deserving their medals, because of tireless study and drilling. Naomi
Burnwood and Kenneth Hannah winning first prizes and Loreen Lubbers and Karl
Seyfarth carrying away the honors of second place. The other contestants were
Margel Wells, Leona Hoffman, Donald Younger, and Romo Bobb.
But where was it that Margaret Gorham and Fred Hoy made their debut?
Where was it that Bud Eson was the naughty daughter Betty of his tyrannical mother
Naomi Burnwood? Where was it that mashed potato messages flashed over the
wires from Margel Wells to Chester Francis, our honored athlete? Where was it
that the finale of the evening came when Harold Price led the famous clown band, and
Leona Taylor and Katherine Fogel danced to the tune of "Tipperary"? Where was
it that Charlie Chaplin, alias Edward Kelley, caused wonderful gaiety to envelop the
old F. H. S. gym? Where was it that Edna was the girl with the beautiful hair, and
Dorothy Rotzler that tight rope walker from Tokio, and Bee Dorman. Madame
Swastiker, the snake charmer? Where was it that Doris Jenkins and Donald Youngs
were the artisocratic couple from New York? It was our Sophomore Circus, and it
was a grand success.
There are members of our class worthy of our attention. There comes to our
mind first Robert Mitchell with the baritone voice that is bound to win repute in the
world. Again we must submit Margaret Corham's name on this honor roll as private
secretary to Prof. L. A. Fulwider. The main duty of this ofiice is draftsman, or that
of opening and shutting the windows.
With these accomplishments and honorable members, we expect our class of l9l8
to graduate with honors and produce artists and masters for the great world of fame.

Freshman Class Hisiory
ln September, l9l5, much to the delight of Prof.
Fulwider and the faculty, we entered the F. H. S.
We have finally wept and bidden our eighth-grade
teachers good-bye and are now Freshmen. Of course
we are green, but just by ancient custom, for even the
Sophomores must admit that we have an unusual
bump of locality, for, besides "Teddy" Franks looking
for room I0 in the laboratory and Walton Hall
"accidently" finding himself in the defective room, we
found our locations exceptionally well.
Within a few weeks we had our class election and
l after much wrangling, we escaped the misfortune of
having a girl-president, and elected Hon. Howard
Rowen, D. D, as president, Agnes lVlcNary as vice
president, Stanley Carter as secretary, and Theodore
G- ZiPf' Historian Franks as treasurer.
Then came the Senior reception. Naturally we had a very good time and, of course,
our stunt was the most wonderful and likewise the best. All through the entire
operation "Doc" Petrie clapped his little hands and when the appendix was removed
he stated that it looked just like his.
On April 28 we pulled off a very successful class party and ably managed to hold
out against the unknown bandits that surrounded the building, trying doors and
windows. After we enjoyed some good stunts, and played the good old games of
Bingo and the Virginia reel, we all returned home at an early hour, and properly
mated, too, which is more than the upper classmen can boast of.
We also are in athletics. Our ambitions can be read by the paper wads on the
assembly room ceiling, while Mr. Fulwider unanimously awarded us first place in the
long-distance note-throwing contest. Had it not been for the number of Freshmen on
Ryan's team in the 25-mile relay that team certainly would not have won.
Our literary societies are a decided success and we proved ourselves orators, ready
for next yearls oratorical contest, and eligible for the debating cup in the near future.
Among the most forcible orations were Shook's "Devotion to our Teachers" and
Hall's "Devotion to our Parents." Both orations showed much practical information
on the subjects.
By the way, the Freshmen boys took hold of the Glee Club and the Freshmen
girls the Treble Clef Club. With the successful way that the Treble Clef Club man-
aged their operetta, "The Japanese Girl," shows that we are more distinguished and
are ready for the stage.
Next year, if we are not at college, we will be back again to continue our unex-
celled record and make the coming Freshmen a deeper green, by way of contrast.

Coach Dan B. Dougherty
Coming to Freeport in the fall of l9l3,
after other coaches had done fairly well
and Freeport High School was known as
a mediocre school in so far as athletics
were concerned, Coach Dougherty began
at once to improve athletic conditions.
The first football team under his
direction was a success and the l9l3
basketball team took second honors in the
state tournament. Not satisfied with the
fine results that had been accomplished
in I9I3, Coach Dougherty worked hard
to achieve still greater honors during the
year of l9l4. His work was not in vain,
for the l9l4 football team was an im-
provement over that of the previous
years and the basketball team won the
state championship. Through the suc-
cess of the track team, F. H. S. was
taking its place in track athletics in the
The year l9l5-l6 has added greater
laurels to our coach's now feared and
The l9l5 football team, though handicapped by
injuries, was the most successful football team Free-
port has ever had. The basketball team of this year
upheld the honor of its coach and school.
More than being a successful coach: more than
being a thorough trainer: more than being an athlete
himself, Dougherty is, above all, a gentleman, having
the support of the students as well as the faculty.
The second team men know that anyone of them
will receive promotion to the first team, if their work
would warrant it. No favoritism, no influence, no
friendship is in the way of producing the best possible
team. True school spirit is what counts with Mr.
Dougherty, the best coach Freeport High has ever had.

I 915 Foothill- Season
The 1915 football season was one of the most successful in the history of football at F. H. S.
With Captain Holmes and an abundance of material Coach Dougherty was able to build up a
speedy combination, which was fighting every inch of the way-the team which was respected
by all opponents. Although the Alumni-stars defeated the team in the First of the season, the
team worked hard and was able to defeat- everyl opponent on the gridiron, with the exceptions
of East Aurora and Kewanee.
The next two weeks was given over to daily scrimmage in preparation for the big at home
game with Joliet. Although joliet had only been defeated the Saturday before, the fast F.
H. S. team was able to win a great victory. 20 ho 0. Moline, Rochelle, Monroe, and Belvidere
were defeated by overwhelming scores in rapid succession..
ln considering the stars of the season we must agree that the whole team played great foot-
ball, while "Pat" Holmes must be given the credit for the wonderful unity and spirit of the
team. Then the coach-the man behind the, guns'-every high school in the state respects
his ability to turn out good athletic teams. He believes not in the individual, but in the team,
and has coached every individual so that each athlete is imbued with school spirit. His teams
all fight to the last trench and are noted for their knowledge of the pastime. The coach, too,
believes that there is nothing like a clean athletic game and he lived up to his past reputation
in this year's football season. We are sorry to lose him, but then. we as a school, wish him
success in his new position.
Since this season's record is but history, we must look to the team of next year. Captained
by "Digum" Mulnix, a thorough exponent of the coaching of Dan Dougherty, the followers of
interfscholastic football may expect nothing but a team capable of winning the Big 8 Confer-
ence of Northern Illinois High Schools. -

The l9l5-16 Baskel Ball Team
The basketball season was very successful. Coach Dougherty faced an un-
usual situation in basketball this year. Only the members of last year's team
who were left formed the nucleus of a team which was backed to win the state
The team, composed of Biersach and Mulnix at the forwards, Langenstein, the
big Captain, on the pivot position and Gilbert offensive guard, and "Pat" Holmes
defensive guard, started the season a well rounded combination, speedy, and well
versed in the minute details of the game. As the season began to grow old, the
hope for a championship team began to grow. But a break of luck against Freeport,
and for Rockford, in the drawing for the sectional tournament gave the F. H. S.
squad three hard teams to play in one day in order to win the championship. It
is history now how the game little Orange and Black team won the first two games
and then lost to Rockford, who had used her second string men against mediocre
teams. by the close score of 26 to 23. The Rockford team later lost the first game
for state championship at Decatur. However, since this season is history, let us
look to next year's team. With five members of this year's squad, four of whom were
first string men, it is hoped that we will win the state championship next year,
without the valuable aid of the class of 'l6.

The 1916 Track Team
With such men as Ryan, Captain Peters, and Holmes out for track Coach Dougherty lost no
sleep over the chances for a winning track team. On Saturday, April 29, the team went to
Oregon, where they competed against such all-round track stars as Landers and Loomis, and
won 48 to 44.
The following Saturday Coach Dougherty took the first team to the Cornell meet. The
team was made up of Noakes, dash man, and Hodel, dash man: Ryan: one-quarter and one-half
milerg Peters, miler, Nlulnix. relay man, and Holmes, weight man. Noakes won third in the 50
yard clash and tied for second in the l00 yard dash. Hodel won second in the 220, while Peters
was unlucky in tearing the ligaments in his ankle in the first lap of the mile run which he was
almost sure to have won. Ryan broke the record for the Cornell meets in the 440 yard dash,
setting a mark of 52 Hat, and also won the 220 yard dash in fast time. Holmes set a new record
for the I2-pound shot by heaving the heavy mass 45 feet SVI inches. He also won second in
the discus with a throw of IO9 feet.
The relay team composed of Noakes, Mulnix, Hodel and Ryan, then broke the 880 yard
relay record by running the event in 36 Hat. The team won a silver loving cup for first prize,
making a total of 31 points. Cedar Rapids being second with 22 and Marshalltown third with
a total of ll points. receiving a silver cup as a prize. Each winner was also given medals for
the places won by him. C-old for First place, silver for second and bronze for third. The relay
men each received gold Cornell pins for their work.
The second team composed of Borchers, high jumper, Francis, dash man, and Ritzman
and Bobb, long distance men, went to Beloit the same day. They were not very successful,
however, Ritzman being the only man who placed. He won third in the mile run.
On Saturday, May l3, Holmes, l-lodel, Ryan, Noakes and Mulnix were entered in the
University ol lllinois lnter-scholastic, gathering a total of I0 points, being for sixth place in
Class A. The team was handicapped by the loss of Peters, the fast miler and captain. Hodel
won third in the 440 yard dash in which Ryan was boxed before he started. Holmes won second
in the shot and third in the discus.
This year's track team was the most successful Freeport High School has ever had!

Field hockey was taken up by the F. H. S. girls, and despite the fact
that this was the first time it had been played here, two very good teams
It is a game which requires mental ability and physical activity. No
more healthful exercise can be gained in any sport. The members of the
teams took advantage of this and worked patiently under the coaching of
Early in the year a hockey club was organized, chiefly for the purpose
of boosting the game and primarily for the purpose of buying a set of sticks
for the school. 4
Games were played between two picked teams and great rivalry resulted.
That they were evenly matched is proved by the fact that the first two real
games ended in a tie, l and l. '
A great deal of "pep" wardisplayed. The boys could not possibly
defend their goal better in football, than did the girls in hockey.
lt is hoped that in another year, when the citizens of Freeport become
better acquainted with the game, that the players will compete in inter-
class games, and at the end of the year, coupled with their gymnasium work,
be awarded with letters.

The Clinton Debate
On Friday, March l7th, our debating teams scored two victories for the school. The
negative team defeated Clinton, Iowa, affirmative 2 to l. Careful training was shown by
their easy, forceful delivery.
They chose a few vital points on which the question hinged and proved them with the
most convincing arguments. It was probably the choice of rebuttal material more than any
other feature that brought us the decision. Following the debate the social committee took
charge of the entertainment in the gymnasium.
The afhrmative team defeated Clinton's negative team, at Clinton, the same night with a
3 to 0 decision.
The judges were: Superintendent E. T. Riley, Plattville, Wisconsing Professor james A.
Campbell, Galesburg, Illinois: Professor R. B. Way, Beloit, Wisconsin.
The presiding officer was Mr. james R. Cowley.

The Davenport Debate
On the evening of March 31st, the F. H. S. debating teams were defeated in the semi-final
debates by the Davenport High School teams, the decision of the judges being 2 to I in each case.
Both teams had great interest in the subjectg they fought over every point as if for blood.
Victory meant competition in the finals for the championship. Davenport's negative team was
composed of three of the linest debaters in the school. It is no dishonor for the F. H. S. to
lose a close debate to such a team. When it is considered that Davenport later won the league
championship, the quality of this year's team is boosted somewhat.
The F. H. S. negative team, debating at Davenport, also lost the decision of the judges
2 to l. With these two debates ended the season for Freeport High School.
The judges were: Professor W. S. Carpenter, Madison, Wisconsin: Professor Malcolm
lVlcNeil, Lake Forest, Illinois: Professor Niles Carpenter, Northwestern University.
The presiding officer was Judge Roscoe Carnahan.

The Semi-Monthly Polaris Staff
Lau ra Murdaugh Harold Hettinger
The Freeport High School's official student paper has always had a reputation
of being a standard publication. -
What has been true of the past is even more true of the present. Although
the Polaris has had an enviable record in the past, this year's semi-monthly publi-
cation has proved most successful.
The success of the l9l 5-I 6 Polaris was due to four factors. First, the editorial
staff: second, the separation of the Annual and semi-monthly staffs: third, live,
up-to-date business managers: fourth, an enthusiastic student body.
Each member of the staff worked hard and consistently. As a result the semi-
monthly Polaris was always ready for publication at the specified time.
The annual and the semi-monthly staffs were separated, thus insuring the
publication of the annual before the first of June.
The business managers had all the advertising space sold before the first week
of school was completed. By hard work they were able to get enough subscriptions
to insure the financial success of both the annual and semi-monthly Polaris.
Finally the student body showed excellent spirit in boosting the Polaris as a
school paper. Every issue of the paper was an expression of the true F. H. S.
spirit and therein we may justly say lay the success of the Polaris.

Auspices of Class of 1916
G. Holmes S. Antrim E. Dildine
The Lecture Course held under the auspices of the Senior Class of
Freeport High School was a very successful enterprise. The Seniors were
able to sell eleven hundred season tickets at one dollar apiece. By selling
such a large number, the Redpath Bureau agreed to give the Class of l9l6
two hundred dollars. No other lecture course in the history of the school
brought such an excellent attraction to Freeport as the Chicago Symphony
It is understood that this year's lecture course is the last which Freeport
High School will give. Thus, the class of l9l6 wins a greater victory, for its
lecture course was the most successful in the history of Freeport High School.

Class T Poem
Now our good faculty had made
Some rules both safe and sound:
Came to the High School that is in
The famous Freeport town.
The faculty said to these dears,
These arn't vacation days
And we will take the lead and you
Must follow in our ways.
We all were students very bold,
As all the world doth know,
And our good friends the publishers
Sold us their ponies slow.
The teachers all did wam them well,
Beware lest you may fall,
For ponies are so treacherous
When finals come to all.
They started them with algebra,
And Latin one and two,
And English was a joy, to, Oh,
So very, very few.
The students at their ponies' side
Seized fast the flowing mane,
And up they got in haste to ride,
But soon came down again.
For October scarce reached, had they,
Their journey to begin,
When turning round their heads, they,
Their monthly marks come in.
So 'round they turned, for loss of time
Although it grieved them sore.
Yet loss of credits, well they knew,
Would trouble them much more.
'Twas soon they all were Sophomores
And all had learned to bluff,
But then there came the Sports, of which
No one could get enough.
To rule our studying and sports,
So time for both was found.
Then over all that they might be
Equipped from top to toe,
Their power of oratory too
They manfully did show.
The Sophomore year went faster still,
And juniors soon they were:
But all they said to Freshmen was,
"Get out my way, thou cur."
But soon they all were over that
And stayed home nights to study,
But the picture show had such a charm,
Since each girl had a steady.
The teachers all were very kind,
Since juniors now they were.
They then taught them some etiquette,
To say, "Yes, ma'am," "No, sir."
They then entered Society.
And had a junior play.
Miss Steenrod was a dandy coach,
And no one can gain-say.
The class was running very fast:
They missed the half-way stop,
And kept on going right straight up
Till they'd almost reached the top.
They now began the long home stretch
With earnest work, and tried
Sometimes to bluff, sometimes to know,
To please their teachers mild.
The football team was playing well
They won most every game:
Although they lost the championship,
They won for us great fame.
Right in the midst of this success.
We heard the classes say:
"We want the Senior reception, we
Won't wait another day."

It has always been the feature of class prophets in the past to ask the audience to project
itself into the future, but we will presently reveal two Greek prophets who will request you
to imagine yourselves in the year I6 A. D., and looking forward to the fulfilled prophecies in the
year l9!6. But since we have always been in the class of philosophical scholars we will not
tell you what each individual should be, but rather what they really are. In complying with this
factor we have divided the prophecy into four parts, the union of which we shall term the
"Origin of the Species." We will show you that in each case the Class of !9!6 has gradually
excelled all others and has, therefore, exemplified the argument of philosphers in regard to the
axiom that the survival of the fittest is the survival of the creature best fitted for its particular
This atom is destined to be admired by the girls. As he goes through the lower halls, girls
will gaze fondly after him: we'll have him surrounded by admiring girls who will idolize him,
so let's name this one Stanley Antrim. And, Oh, another! 'Tis of a quiet, retiring nature. so
pensive and sweet: a child of rosette hue, worshipped by the teachers. Say we call it Ralph
Aspinwall. Sh! I hear a humming, buzzing sort of an atmosphere around this atom. Oh.
yes, this will be called Gladys Brubaker, a buzzing Bee by her side, and if here isn't another
Buzzer4Francis Burritt. This atom will win distinction in the lines of dramatics. I see her
upon the stage: she will answer to the name of Bethel Brown, or Mrs. Leadbatter. I can
scarcely see this one 'tis so small. Now I see better. This fellow will follow to the call of
Merton Beck. He will confide to his friends his desire to be a great electrician. I'm Sure I
can't figure this one out. Let's call it Myrtle Brobst. She will act and do as she pleases.
Well, what a daring, adventurous looking particle. It will have a close connection to a certain
jewelery store. She will be called Margaret Blust. My, what a roaring, unearthly noise! This
is destined to be Orville Borchers, who will be a great success as a German, but of a peaceful
nature. He will have cliff-iculty in having a hat fitted, so we'll suggest he wear a helmet. At
first glance I thought you were a door hinge, but your voice mislead me. You will be known
as Ray Bolender. I do declare this one will be seen quite frequently in his junior year in the
chemistry laboratory. How fond of the art of mixing dyes in a beaker, to foil him who will be
his instructor. Say we name it Clark Brubaker. These two will be determined to stick to-
gether. What are they? Two talcum powder cans be the Freidags. l..et's give them our
blessings and let them go at that. I..et's put a rosy hue in this one's cheeks for contrast's sake.
and call it Lucile Carter. This is a commercial sort of atom whose name will be john Bennehoff.
A golden haired maiden beside him, Dorothy Cardin. These two will have quite an affinity
for each other: perhaps there will be another chapter to this story. Along the trail comes ha
jolly sort of an atom. He will give more attention to the ladies, in the Polaris office, than his
writing pad. He will be known among his comrades as Homer Boelter. This is a winsorne.
brilliant piece of matter, accompanied by the demure and charming friendship of Rose Phillips,
who will be called Ruth Countryman. These two will have a David and jonathan friendship
for each other. And this atom will be among the automobile accidentsg although she will
escape, she will meet death sometime. Suppose we create this reckless atom into Lois Clark-
Here are two unseparable atoms, one very fond of the combination of pink and blue, the other
will be very fond of taking naps in charge periods. She believes in beauty sleeps. We'1l Call
the first one Florence Dampman and this one Olga Tappe. This one will be shy, decidedly
backward and retiring, but gradually will become a pink-paged sport. Suppose we call it
Edwin Dildine. Here is another member of the Hawiett phalanx-Paul Dustman. Here IS
one whose papa hangs wall paper. It will run in the family to be so, we'll call this Theodore
Demeter. Ah, yes, this will be the toughest lad, Edwin Davis. His mamma won't believe it:
neither do we. Listen, let's call this one Willie Ennenga and make him a peaceful German,
also a great politician in U. S. History. What dreamy eyes we will give this one. Say we narric
it Dorothy Ellis. She will be responsible for many duels among the Freshmen boys. Herevs
one who will have wheels-Doris Engle-but they will be those of a bicycle. We'll name this
Dwight Emerick, a rival of Charles Zipf. Some will say Charlie is not a nice boy, but we ll
bet on Dwight as being the favorite of Geneva. This one, when a Freshman, will have many
jokes played on him, but when he becomes a Senior he will be known as Jennings Eder. This
one will be Elmo Eson: his nickname will be "Wart", although we see no connection. Here
is one who will not be a good fisher-of men. Say we name it Catherine. I..et's give this one
a fair complexion, a fondness for junior boys and name it Elizabeth Fugate. Say we have a
good-natured fellow with a keen sense of humor. Shall we call it LeRoy Foss? Shall we have
X W, 3. N... my , ,
, if A it 1 N W! . v
N , N it in W 2 ..-L W, W, ,.
a Latin shark too? Then we will call this Martha Cueth. Here's one we'll call Margaret
Goodman, one who will be a friend of Mae Betts--say we add no further curse? Let's name
this one Florence Green. She will try her darndest to make a hit with that dramatic voice of
hers, but 1. Here is an atom who will be fond of gasolene motor cycles, those engines on
wheels. Shall we give her a pretty face? Yes, and name it Valerie Geraty. This atom will
be associated with a vaudeville house and a bakery house, so its name will be Roy Guhl. Yes,
and he will be somewhat nervy too. Of course there must be a grouch among this to be a
famous class. He will ride a bicycle, so let's name it Howard Herlocker. Here will be Harold
Hettinger who will think himself the biggest man in the class, so will Dorothy Ellis. We'll
not contradict two such minds. My, what a 1 looking one! Ah, no, upon further obser-
vation l see something! Ah, yes, we must call this one Gladys Hanna, and we will give her a
perpetual grin. Why, what's this? An Olive? Oh, no! Who'll be only a lover of Olive?
Why "Pat" Holmes, of course, This one l'll call Chester Hurley. Nothing will develop quite
so rapidly as his goo-goo eyes. This is a curious thing: it's an electric curler, say we create
Marie Keller from this. This one moves very mechanically. Who shall we have act, talk,
and perform things so precisely? Gertrude Janssen. Here is one who will wear an orange and
black sweater, a pleasant smile and a basketball ring. Say we name it Katherine Keene. I
see another atom which is destined to excel all others. Some of us can not see him at all, others
must get aeroplanes to reach him, for he is far above the average. Boyd Hill, ah yes, the great
speaker, actor and editor of the Annual. What is this peculiar atom approaching? lt draws
close! Ah! l see the treasurer of the class, Bernice Knapp. My vision is blinded and I see
the angel Gabriel with a trumpet. No the object draws nearer. 'Tis Russell Knott playing a
horn in the F. H. S. hand. Now my sight is restored for l see a quiet molecule approaching.
Ah, it is a studious boy in the library: sure enough it is Henry Kunz. l am growing deaf, l

keys. Ah, l see 'tis Hilda Luedeking. My powers of prophecy are leaving me. Curses!
There is another peculiar mineral. Ah, 'tis in a pensive mood, very quiet. Oh, yes, how well l
remember. Destiny tells me it is Marie Ludolph. Now my vision returns and l see a pair
of silk gloves combined with tight fitting clothes. Surely l must know this being. How well
l remember that Stanley Antrim said l have two pairs of pajamas, Charley Chaplin and Charley
Lavelle. This affair in the tight fitting clothes and yellow gloves is Charles Lavelle. l hear an
atom with a squeaky voice destined to be very small. Surely me ears do not deceive me. lt
is Cleo Lamb. There is a peculiar combination-two atoms destined to be good natured and
studious. Ah, yes, their names are Margaret Maurer and Francis Manion. Heavens! A
great light dims my view. l see a small town-Pearl City. The gates are opening and there
issues forth abright theatrical star-the leading lady of the Senior play, "Merely Mary Annu-
Ardath Mishler. l see queer figures which resemble shorthand but looks are deceiving. They
have developed, one is Ruth Nute and her companion Maxcie Musselman. l have suddenly
come across a most peculiar atom. lt is philosophical, you say. lt is the beginning of a great
mind. No, 'tis Emory Mulnix, debater, actor, man. Here is a combination of two atoms of
the same nature proving that two people can agree. Dan Owens and Blanche Moyer, both
willing workers. l see a pair of glasses on a weak mind. No, l'm wrong: 'tis a wonderful mind
capable of great things. l see it in the Polaris office. Sure enough it is Laura Murdaugh, the
new woman of the class. Oh, dear: here comes a boisterous anatomical error. No, Bertha
Newman, the most verbose in the class. My vision follows a pair of toes-wonderful toes full
of graceful movements. Oh, yes, she was the first girl in our class to receive an "F", Elizabeth
Osten. This atom is bound on playing tricks on others. It is feminine. It is masculine. No,
it is a Tom-boy, Marion Rockey, playing a trick on the giggling Marie Reints. l hear three
great molecules, feminine in gender. They seem to be quiet, but when it comes to marks and
credit cards, Oh, my! The bosom friends, Helen Swanzey, Elsie Resh and Margaret Wagner.
l am growing tired, but then it is excusable for this atom too is very lazy. It is sleeping in
the assembly, the bell rings and Marie Rigney is awakened.
The pupils of my eyes become white. Surely these are quiet, unassuming angels--Margaret
Sweeney and Orletta Rideout. Such a noise! This atom knows nothing of the physical signifi-
cance of harmony and discord. It has red hair and companion freckles. It is now a public
speaker. Frank Reed. Now I see a narrow atom. Ah, yes, it is a runner-in athletic contest
and after girls too. Why yes, as it approaches it resembles a brass band. Oh, no, 'tis Russell
Ryan decked with medals. Next I see a good natured molecule with wonderful vocal chords.
Surely she is the leading lady in the operetta "The japanese Girl"-Hazel Spielman, a great
singer enclosed in a small body. Now I see two similar atoms having the same basic qualities.
They are in the chemistry lab. The two Snyders, Roy and Harold. What a peculiar mineral
is this. I predict she will be an all around star. Her name will be Stoller-we wonder why
some boy hasn't done it long ago. Now I see atomical quadruplets, always together, jabbering
away. I hear them now, surely: I see them. Clifford Snively, Ethel Stewart, Amy Schenken
and Harold Sumner. Here is one with tendencies to crowd out all of the species. Shall we
call her nervy, no we will call her Madelyn. Now the peculiarities become more thickly settled.
Ah, this atom is a mystery unsolved, Barbara Schar. What is this peculiar substance? Oh,
well, we'll cal! it Schmertman and let it go at that. The next is not peculiar, it seems to be
studious, sure enough it is Vernie Schleuning, the hard working Senior girl. Here we have two
of the most despicable atoms. very lovable at all timesfto each other. I see them sitting in
the same chair in the Polaris office hanging out of the windows togetherAEdward Seitz and Leah
Vaupel. We would like to spoon, but then these two spoon. However, this couple have warm
spots in the hearts of the faculty for they have made spooning popular at F. H. S. Would you
like to spoon? After seeing them? Nit! I see two molecules destined to bluff everything and
everybody. Surely my vision does not fail me for they are Royal Wilds and Alice Wilkey,
champion bluffers of the class. I see an atom destined to be a great man in the junior year
and then fizzle out by the 1 say, Williams has reached the anti-climax and is engaged. An
atom appears and fades from my sight. Her best gentlemen friend calls her "Kid", !..et's
call her Ethel Witt-less, and let it go at that. Now one of our noble tribe has always kept a
diary. Having been precocious she will tell you of the History of the origin of the species and
conclude the survival of the fittest.
An Epilomc of the Records of the 1916 Tribe of lhc F. H. S. Race
A throng! A tumult! Confusion everywhere! Seven mighty tribes are beginning to
evolve from the lowest chaotic form of barbarism to the highest state of civilization!
We are a free and playful people. We do not realize that we must attain a great end: we
do not know that we are to evolve into the highest social status, mentally and physically. The
first step in attempting to reach the goal set for us by Providence is the organization of our
people into seven distinct crystalline tribes as First Ward, Lincoln, Third Ward, Center, River,
East Freeport, Union, and Saxby Tribes. In these tribe formations we are to prepare to over-
come the greatest of all opposing forces-Ignorance. How small we are: we seem but atoms.
Hazel Spielman is but a mere bird. fFrom this primitive state she has evolved and transformed
until now she is the greatest of all warblersj How insignificant this people! How thoroughly
unprepared for such a strife!
Eight long centuries have passed since the time when our task was first set before us and
few of the opposing forces are overcome. No longer is such a strife to be left to all of the people,
but the strongest and ablest of the seven tribes must be selected and must carry on the work
left by the weaker ones. Those who possess unusual prowess and ability step forward: the
weak ones linger behind. 'Tis those who are farther advanced who are chosen. Lo! 'Tis the
evolutionary process: it is the survival of the fittest. These people are to become a separate
and distinct tribe, stronger, far more powerful, than the former tribe formation. This is the
l9!6 Tribe of the Freeport High School.
The tribe has just entered the new training school. Opposition appears. Timidity Forces
led by Henry Kunz and Barbara Schar. Roy Guhl, Ralph Aspinwall, Madelyn Schumacher,
well evolved from the barbarous characteristic timidity, oppose them.
WINTER.. First raid against Timidity. Debate is held between girls and boys. Un-
expected evolutionary results-women victoriousiequal suffrage.

The German Club
The German Club was founded for the purpose
of purchasing pictures and statuary for the German
room. The club was organized shortly after the
beginning of the school year, the following officers
President, Katherine Molter.
Vice President, Marie Kellar.
Secretary, Margaret Wagner.
Treasurer, Orville Borchers. '
With the officers elected, a German party was
planned which took place on the Kaiser's birthday,
january 27. Katherine Molter
A regular supper was served in the music room. The room was decorated with
red, white and black flags. After supper came the entertainment, dancing and
games. The club also sponsored the German plays, which were very successful, both
theatrically and financially. The money derived from the production of the plays
was used for purchasing pictures and statuary for the German department.
The German Club, as a final event of the school year, enjoyed a real German
picnic at Krape Park.
The Latin Club
Although no officers were elected, a Latin Club was formed, the membership of
which included every Latin student. The Caesar students enjoyed a contest, the
purpose of which was to decrease the number of mistakes in Latin compositon. The
classes were divided into two teams, the loser banqueting the winner of the team which
made the least mistakes. The banquet was given May 15th, in the gymnasium,
Later games were played and a general good time was enjoyed by all.
The Latin students also had a picnic on June 9th, Latin verb games and athletic
stunts were pulled off, making an enjoyable occasion.

yl The usual question, "Are we going to have Literary this year?" was settled Thursday,
the seventh day of October, when Mr. Fulwider assigned the sections to the various teachers.
L Instead of forming the sections according to alphabetical arrangement of the students,
1 the societies were organized according to the order in which they sat in the assembly hall. The
large enrollment made it necessary to have eighteen sections.
W U The students looked forward to the semi-monthly meetings of the societies with a greater
interest than ever before in the history of literary sections at Freeport High School. The suc-
y cess of the literary meetings may be accounted to this primary factor. 1
The sections and officers were as follows:

The Fable of the Laura Bird
" ' w
1 The Laura bird came to class one day and fl
f found William the Fox marvelling at her 1
W ' wonderous beauty. "Ahl" thought the
li Laura bird, "l'll make myself more worthy ix U
e of admiration," whereupon she caused the ,iq
L ' admirable pink on her cheek to deepen into a X W
W crimson scarlet-a color never equalled in Wi
glory by even the rainbow. Her countenance mf
was thus most unnaturally transfigured. "3
"Ah, beautiful, beautiful bird," quoth the ,If
f Fox, "worthy to be loved eternally."
Q V, j The bird laughed merrily and resumed her
Q 4 natural color, after being satisfied that she al!
! -?' had pleased the eye of the Fox. if

The Fable of the Evolution of Man if
1 When Luther the Lion resumed his class of dumb, though animate species, for another if
term of school, he said, "Among several things we wish to do within the next few weeks is to ry,
sandpaper Aspinwallf' Now Aspinwall, as the name suggests, was a rough and boistrous ape. I
The class, for the most part, was composed of several kinds of birds, a few foxes, a number of YQ
lambs, a group of night watch dogs, and a host of goats and fishf But for what is included in pf
thehnext lnsentence this incident would never have been written. The animals jeered at the ape, '
wit out aving reason to jeer. ,Q
i Proof of foregoing contention: if
1 l. Scientific belief.
X I. Man evolved from ape. tj
, , ll. General Idea. fr,
lr l. Man is the crown of all creation. fp
'N III. Physiological observation.
l. An ape is an unpolished man.
W IV, Practical Knowledge. Y
fl I. Rough surfaces are polished by means of sandpaper. M
Ni, Logical lnference: jfl
A little sandpaper would convert Aspinwall into the Crown of Creation.
Q. Philosophical Deduction:
,X l. There is mlore chance for an uniaogsged man to become a man than for a perfect
.A goat to ecome even an unpo is e man. wif:
li ll. That which is worthy of being sandpapered is valuable. T3

George Lipscomb, our Poet
An Ode to
Freepori High School
May "Freeport High School" ever ring,
From lips that love thy praise to sing,
To ears that list thy story:
And may thou rest on clouds of fame,
Where thy productions write thy name,
In annals of pure glory.
Thy history tells thy noble worth,
Of deeds thou wrought'st e'r at thy berth,
They loom from heads now hoary:
More! Generations from thy breast
Have faced the world, and stood the test!
And sing thee praise of glory.
Thy cause is sacred, Freeport High,
And for thy sake we'll do or die,
It is a worthy pleasure:
For us to strive while we may last,
To outstrip records of the past,
To earn a greater measure.
Oh, may the generations come,
And keep thy progress on the hum,
Oh, let it slaken never:
May bards breathe out their rythmecl song,
In days, the future bring along.
And chant thy praise forever.
Go on and up. Oh, Freeport High,
The spirit flaming cannot die,
And, when our heads are hoary,
We hear that name again of fame
Our hearts shall swell, our hearts shall flam
With our dear High School's glory.
