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?

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.

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.

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 state. The year l9l5-l6 has added greater laurels to our coach's now feared and respected name. 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.

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. - l70l in t.,.,.t,u.iMn,mt....L lu 'L QW i.f,MCTfL7'I'MI . wwf' '"5f'iTL2?NE5?Z3,EQi'lli5,..Z12Q,f73S95V-7, -A W "1 - f Captain Chester Langenstein Ball Squad Top Row MCoach D.

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 championship. 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.

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.

H. S. have finished a very success- ful athletic year, under the capable supervision of their director, Miss Henrietta Bjoin. Our coach established V hockey here, a new game in this city. Through her eamest endeavor and patient coaching, at Taylor's Park, two very good teams were turned out. Nothing too high can be said in praise of Miss Bjoin. who gave up so much of her own time to the students, through coaching hockey and basketball teams outside of the regular gymnasium work. Miss Henrietta Bjoin Hockey 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 were developed. "' l, mt, 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 Miss Bjoin. 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 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. pam 1 mws- -g ...,. :T . The A rmaiive Team Herbert Hannah, leader Earl DeVoe. alternate Emory Mulnix Orville Borchers 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.

S. representatives in the University of Illinois District No. 2 extemporaneous and oratorical contests at DeKalb, Illinois, April 29. won every prize, defeating representatives from Franklin-Grove, Sandwich, Rock- ford, Elgin, Kewanee and Princeton. By winning every place, the Freeport High School has established a precedent in the University contests. George Lipscomb, who delivered his oratiori, "The Future of the American Negro," won first place in composition, thought and delivery. In the " extemp " contest Frank Reed received an average of 257 from the judges, while Herbert Hannah, the other representative of the Orange and Black, made an average of only one point below Reed, 256. Frank Reed won first place with the subject, "Shall lt Be Hughes?", while Herbert Hannah won second honors with the subject, "The Grand Duke Nickolasf' This great victory gave F H S three representatives in the state contest at the University of Illinois where Lipscomb won the state championship in oratory The Freeport High School was also represented by George Lipscomb at Beloit College in oratory While Naomi Burnwood Eleanor Sanford, Frank Reed and Herbert Hannah made up a team for entrance in the oral discussion reading and letter writing contests at Lake Forest College.

The contestants in both boys' and girls' con- tests were limited to four. The coaching was done by Miss Ryan, Miss Steenrod, and Mr. Rutenbeck. Leona Hoffman, Margel Wells, Lorene Lubbers and Naoma Burnwood were entered in the girls' contest. while Kenneth Hannah, Karl Seyfarth, Don Younger, and Romo Bobb were the contestants in the boys' contest. Of these contestants, Naoma Burnwood won hrst place, and received a gold pin emblematic of that honor: Lorene Lubbers winning second place and an F. H. S. ring. For the boys, Kenneth Hannah won the silver medal, while Karl Seyfarth won the bronze medal. This contest showed that Freeport High School has exceptional debate material for future years.

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. Issues of the Semi-Monthly Polaris October 3-Alumni Issue. October 22. January 21. February ll. November 5aFootball Issue.

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 Orchestra. 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.

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." N HImwwnmwlwuxmwnuwmw-1.' P X M W N Winiiisi1-m1Wim.,i.wmWwwum2- .W wa T, 'xi E Vi, 'iw HH Nl!

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 environment. 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 I991 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 hear a noise indistinguishable from the bleating of a lamb or a calf, but now it is very plain: it is a brass band instrument wound about Emil Kerchner. My vision grows dim, l feel a warm th. a forest fire approaches, a great conliagration. No, the heat diminishes. It is George Kleck- ner, Ardath's pride. My hearing is affected. l hear nothing but the clicking of typewriter 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 I100l 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. Senior Hisfory 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. Freshman Century 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.

Q ,L f XXXXX l'l Treble Clef Club Glee Club 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 being elected: 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. I115 nw W mimi . 1. . fi asm. 1 '1N! u Hrs F ,, ,'liw" "1 ' "'-.

Lzierary Soczehes 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: MR. ROUCH " MR. KIRTLAND X, 5resic::entZLeo WDalte?. Sresicisnt-EC.

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.
