ATURDAY, August 26, 1922, was a big day for our little city.
That day Freeport kept open house to Stephenson County and
to Illinois. If she had aspired to welcome her country and the
whole world, none would have called her presumptuous. For she
had an honorable thing to offer for inspection-a little city, dressed in its
best, in gayest holiday mood, united, and co-operating fully to honor the great
open Forum held here August 27, 1858. Here, almost sixty-five years ago,
the immortal Lincoln and his distinguished rival, Douglas, clashed swords in
political debate. Here, Lincoln put to Douglas a question, known in history
as the "Freeport Question": " Can the people of a U. S. territory, in any law-
ful way, against the wishes of any citizen of the U. S., exclude slavery from its
limits prior to the formation ofa state constitution?" The result you know.
Mr. Douglas's affirmative answer made him a U. S. senator, made Lincoln
president in 1860, and changed the course of national events. Proud little
Freeport, last August!
The day was celebrated by a spirited debate CHarrison and Schuylerj at
Taylor's Park, by a notable public dinner, a remarkable museum, a splendid
civic parade, band concerts, fire-works, throngs of visitors, and, in the evening,
by a little pageant at the Lincoln-Douglas Boulder, whose main feature was
a replica ofthe original debate of 1858. The details ofthe pageant were most
painstakingly planned and the sequences presented were:
Part I. En Route.
1. A gay procession of citizens going to the debate, in picturesque dress
ofthe period, some in carriages and wagons and on horseback, many more on
foot. Lincoln, in a Canestoga wagon with moderator Turner and court re-
porter "Bob" Hitt, Douglas, in a barouche, with Colonel Mitchell and other
friends, preceded or followed by the Hoat of 32 states, mounted herald, and
escorts, band and many citizens.
2. At the Lincoln-Douglas Boulder.
Part II. August 1858.
2. Voice declaiming: " Free Speech, the Bulwark of Free Government"

Juni or History
' t 3 HEN we first came to F. H. S. from
the grade schools, we had no idea 35,
41' what a wonderful class we were and lg
how our mother, the Old Woman Who
Lived in a Shoe Cand had so many
children she d1dn't know what to doj would
favor us. From the very first she pampered us fit
by offering various ways in which we might dis-
QS tmguish ourselves in our Freshman year. Of
ff, course, she was just training us then and we were ,,
supposed to 'betrather ignorant of the ways of the 5
E Shoe, but still we were a credit to anyone. is
S In our Sophomore year, we found that our mother
if had given her favorite child many things to be
' A thankful for, among them, some finished orators,
in-25 MARY ELLEN MANIQN who took part in the Oratorical Contest and some is
splendid athletes, who distinguished themselves Q,
5 on the field and basketball Hoor. Furthermore, we were. not lacking in get
musical talent as we had two of our number cast for principal parts in the
,Q operetta, "Springtime", besides countless others who helped to make the 'Q
:l choruses a success. ze
Q33 But in our Jtlrniorf yegr, wie, the fagorite Eihildrenlvplq the gusty Old lg1dy.,dout-
Q. shone even er on est o es. ur o cers, 1 ton a coc , resi ent, H
rg Marjorie Burns, Vice Presidrentg and Churchill Bangs, Secretary-Treasurer, S
S2 were very capable and enthusiastic and led the Juniors to startling victories. E
if-xi Our class was not forgotten when our mother was choosing athletes. Just
if think of them! In football we were represented by "Butch" Kappes, "Art" fi
0 Voight, George Stout, John Baker, " Ken" Clark, Jack Wilson, Don Nelson, 2
SS Maxwell Taylor, "Don" Stewart, and Francis Heinen. In basketball the
N heavyweight captain, "Don " Stewart was of our class, also, Milton Babcock, S:
E John Baker and Leland Fahs, who helped materially in bringing victory,
E As we were just growing strong and healthy in the third year of our existence,
S we made the Old Ladyifairly burst with pride by showing her how much fun, Q
aw amusement, and financial success can be crammed all into one lively "Vanity is
Egg Fair". Q
'D Sweet cadences charmed those who saw and heard Nonie Kuehner, Karl S
S Jaeger, Charles Richards, alnd Kenneth Boyer,.who took the leading parts in E
QE the operetta, "Miss Bob White". Excellent singing was produced by other E
Junior voices swelling the choruses. Q
re History te'lls"Nothing but the Truth" when it records how the clever Junior
gg Play, with Ruth Andre and Jack Wilson in the stellar roles, packed the theatre gig
nr two nights, May 3 and 4, with audiences who declared that "ne'er before 5
R had been a play equal to it". All of the characters were splendidly portrayed
E by a strong and talented cast.
Q The last thrill of the year for the happy occupants of the Old Shoe was the ff
Junior-Senior Banquet. With the combined help of our able advisors, Miss L1
Moore, Mr. Campbell, Miss Dorman, Miss Blood, and Mr. Cross, and of Miss mg,
Normile, the angel of the kitchen, the banquet was a great success and we if'
S prophesy many delightful surprises for the Old Lady when the class of '24
are really grown up in their fourth year.

Sophomore History 5:
' HEN we came back to High School
last September,.we could hardly real- QQ
ize that the desirable stage of soph-
istication had been reached. But, glad Eg
to have struggled through our Fresh-
man year, we settled down to prepare. for the Q
work awaiting usg we wanted to accomplish great Kg
things and make our Sophomore class, the finest F,
Freeport High School had ever sponsored. E
The first important thing we did was elect our
class oflicers. David Burrell was elected president,
George Morse, vice-president, James Pollock, sec-
retary and treasurer. With the aid of these
V worthy oiiicers, a capable board, and an efficient if
DOROTHY LING advisor, we again took up our journey toward 2
success, feeling very much stimulated.
With the opening of the football season, some very good material was dis-
covered in the Sophomore class. To the heavyweight team we contributed is
Harry Grossle and William Brooks, wh1le.Edwin Trunck, Russell Goodrich 'fu
and James Pollock helped in many of the lightweight battles. QRS
In December we felt exceedinglytproud to have our class represented by James
Richards who carried one of the. important roles in "Miss Bob White". Many BS
of our number were also heard in the chorus. Again, a number of Sophomore
voices helped make the Treble Clef Club and Glee Club each successful and is
popular musical organizations. ,,
Our real accomplishment of the year was the annual Sophomore Oratorical
Contest. Three girls'and threeuboys were chosen to compete out of about as
forty who tried out in the preliminary contest. The selections given were
very interesting and well interpreted. Goldie Timms was awarded the prize if
for the girls, and Davld Burrell, for the boys. After such a successful contest
we look for the class of '25 to produce some noted orators.
When the Girls' Orange and Black was divided into two clubs, the president, fi
secretary, and treasurer of the Junior Girls' Club were chosen from the S-E
Sophomore Class. 32
- I . 'N
By this time our eyes. were being turned to the I. O. O. F. Temple where
Forrest Paul, our dashing center was playing a fine game of basketball for the
heav1es.4 The lights were strengthened by Russell Goodrich, William Stewart,
James Pollock and Donald Blackston. ,Q
With the advice and help of Mrs. Scott, the Sophomores made some very
catchy posters for Good Book Week. They certainly helped arouse interest -F
among the students, for hundreds of. books were added to our library. Fur-
thermore, the classes did the advertising for various activities throughout the
Thus, closes the history of the Sophomore class of 1923. We hope that ,N
we will, by co-operating with our teachers and fellow-students follow, in the Q
footsteps of our predecessors and make our remaining two years as successful
as our former ones.

Freshmen A History
N the fifth of September, l922, we
entered high school. VVhen we had
wearied the pursuing Sophomores,
we determined to force upon the other
classes the knowledge of Our exist-
ence. The Seniors realized it first. They invited
us all to a reception, held after school. Most of
us were present, and enjoyed it immensely.
It was at the football games that we showed our
merit. We went over on the side lines and yelled
until our various heads swam. If you couldnlt
hear the cheering, it was because we were too
scattered. By the end of the season we got to-
' ' gether.
EDWIN HALL When basketball began, we astonished the school,
. being represented on both squads. A midget or
Hyweight team was organized and was composed mainly of our classmates.
We took a prominent part in the choruses of the remarkably successful musi-
cal comedy, "Miss Bob White,', and one of the most important parts fell
to Elizabeth Anderson, Freshman A. ,
One of the most important events of our year was the election of class officers
which took place just before the end of our first semester. Something had
happened to the girls, every officer was a member of the masculine gender
except the two females necessarily included on the Board of Control. How-
ever, there is no question that the officers chosen were the best, David lVIcNary
becoming class President, William Stover, Vice president, and Robert Dorman
VVe hope now, that even the venerable Sophomores will admit that we have
lost a bitof that verdant hue that was so glaring for the first month or two.
We hope we are becoming less obnoxious to the dignified Juniors and Seniors.
We hope our classmates have been welcome to the athletic squads they
"made" and to the Glee Club and Treble Clef Clubs. We hope we can keep
on as we have begun. If we can, it is because we have entered a school with
the. finest faculty, the finest student body and the finest school spirit that we
believe can be found on this continent.

Mr. Crosby has been at F. H. S. but one year,
but during that time he has developed a light-
weight football team that won the Conference
Championship, and a basketball team that lost
but one game during the season. Mr. Crosby is a
graduate of the Illinois State Normal School, and
is instructor in bookkeeping. He is, no doubt, one
of the best coaches in the lightweight division, and
all credit is due him for the success of the Freeport

OR the past two years athletics have
been directed by one of the best
athletes Freeport High School has
ever turned out. In 1915, Coach
Holmes was a member of that famous
basketball team that Won the State Champion-
ship. He was also known as a football player of
great merit. Because of his exceptional coaching
ability, this year F. H. S. had a basketball team
far superior to that of previous years. During the
entire season, Freeport lost but one conference
game, and that was to Rockford. Coach Holmes
expects to develop a team that will win the State
Championship next year.
Mr. Cross has been financial manager of ath-
letics for the past four years, and each year the
efficiency of the Athletic Association has increased
until this year athletics are on a firm financial
basis. Mr. Cross has been assisted during this
season by an Athletic Council, consisting of
twenty:six students. The Council has relieved
Mr. Cross of much of the mechanical work of
ticket selling and he was able to give much time
to the management of the games. Mr. Cross is
the financial wizard of the school and has been
called upon to manage the plays and money
affairs of several classes, and has proved himself
a most efficient manager.

This year, a newlidea was conceived for the management of the High School
Athletic Association. Thirteen girls and thirteen boys were selected from the
various classes, combining to form the Athletic Council. ..
The problem of this Council consisted not only in furthering the ticket cam-
paigns but also, in managing the funds of the Association. Through the aid
of the members of this Council the football season netted a balance which had R
never before been .equalled in the history of the school.
Through the untiring efforts of the Council an elaborate banquet was given
in honor of the football men. I E
A similar plan will be carried out in future years. Members of the Council er
who do not graduate this year will continue their membership next fall, and ,Q
will aid in the selection of the new personnel. t.
M. Schwarz was elected chairman of the girls, and R. Burns was chosen chair- ff
man of the boys. The officers of the joint Council are: President, R. Burns, EQ

0ne of the most successful basketball seasons in the history of the school has
just been completed. Both lightweight and heavyweight teams lost but one
conference game, and that was to Rockford. The success of the teams is due
in a large degree to the competent coaching of Mr. Holmes and Mr. Crosby,
and also to the boys on the teams, who worked hard to uphold the standard
of the school. '

The annual relay race between Freeport and Rockford was run on Wednes-
day, May 3. The race was begun in Freeport and ended in Rockford. Don
Stewart started the race for Freeport and finished his lap twenty-five yards
ahead of the starter for Rockford. Babcock took the baton for Freeport and
increased the lead to about one hundred yards. The third runner added
twenty more yards to the Freeport lead, but on the fourth lap, Rockford
began to speed up and at the twelfth lap, Rockford led by ten yards.
From the twelfth lap, Freeport was unable to catch up with the Rockford
runners. The distance between the runners varied but Freeport remained
a short distance behind. When the last Rockford runner gave the baton to
the Rockford may or, he was three hundred yards ahead of Deemer, the last
runner for Freeport. R
Each school had fifty- three runners in the race, and each runner ran one-
half mrle. The time for the race over the twenty-seven and one-half mile
course was two hours and twenty m1nutes.

NE great asset developed in the career of the high school boy is
the spirit of good fellowship which he shows toward his school-
mates. Another, is the noble Christian ideal which inspires the
boy to get the most out of life and at the same time encourage
another boy who may need a word of cheer to make school more
worth while to him.
The purpose of the Hi-Y club is "to create, maintain and extend through-
out the school and community, high standards of Christian character, that
through this vision of the life of the individual, they might get a higher and
better idea of the needs of the community."
The club meets every Wednesday evening at the Y. M. C. A. where a good
meal is served at a nominal fee, followed by a program of music, readings,
and a talk by one of the boys or a discussion of "Community" problems by
some business man. Any Junior or Senior boy in High School is eligible
to belong to the club. All that is necessary for membership is to attend the
meetings and participate in the activities.
Various projects were carried out by the Hi-Y in the past year. A delega-
tion of interested boys was sent to the Older Boys' Conference at Peoria.
Fired with enthusiasm for their work these boys promoted a like conference
for the benefit of the boys of this county-the First Tri-County Older Boys,
Conference, including boys of Stephenson, jo Daviess and Carroll counties.
The Club sent out ten Gospel teams to local churches. The boys also promoted
a very benehcial Campaign of Friendship among High School boys. One of
the social achievements was the Hi-So-Phy carnival held at the Y. M. C. A.
The club had a splendid sleighing party in January.

Senior Orange and Black Club
The Orange and Black Club, which was organized last year, grew to such
an extent that a division was found necessary. The Senior and Junior girls
formedithe Senior Orange and Black Club, while the Sophomore and Fresh-
man girls made up the Junior Orange and Black membership.
A decidedly different but .pleasing plan was carried out by the club this
year. Business meetings, followed by an attractive social program, were
held at the Y. W. C. A. every fourth Wednesday of the month. After the
meeting a supper was served.
The president attended a conference of similar clubs at Milwaukee, and
many ideas obtained there were used for the betterment of the club. It is
the desire of the girls that at some future time a like conference may be held
at Freeport. The club plans to send delegates to the summer camp at Lake
Geneva. The pin selected this year will be the standard for the future years.
Miss Constantine and Miss Stewart are the faculty advisers. The officers
are: President, Elizabeth Mitchellg Vice President, Mary Ellen Maniong
Secretary, Leota Mellomg Treasurer, Esther Buterbaugh.
The club's activities terminated the last of May in a delightful banquet
at the Y. W. C. A. at which the oHicers for the coming year were introduced.

club into ofhce.
Meetings, followed by suppers, were held at the Y. W. C. A. on the second
Thursday of each month. A special program was presented at every meeting.
Miss Moore gave a very interesting talk on her travels abroad at one meeting.
Another evening a regular campfire program was carried out at which time
the Junior delegates to the Milwaukee conference related their valuable
experiences at that convention.
Two one act plays were splendidly presented by the Junior Orange and
Black girls at the High School in May. One was a comedy, "Twelve Good
Men and True," and the other was, "The Birthday Ball," a colonial cos-
In the first week of June, the Junior division entertained the Senior Orange

OCIETYI What student's heart does not miss a beat at that
word? Seniors, think over your last year at school. Don't you
feel a thrill when you recall all the parties and activities this
revue includes? Each club and society of the school had its
own picnics, parties, dances, and banquets but also under this
head must come the list of the social activities enjoyed by the school at large.
Freshmen, think of your striking entrance into high school society at the
Senior Reception! Early in the fall, in October, to be exact, the Seniors
gave a reception to the Freshmen and to all new students in Freeport High
School. A program was given in the assembly after which dancing and
games were enjoyed. And-don't let us omit the "EATS". Seniors and
Freshmen alike forget their class dignity when it came to the Heats."
A matinee dance was held in November, the proceeds of which were used
to defray the expenses of the Athletic Banquet.
At the close of the school before Christmas vacation, the Latin Club
sponsored a matinee dance. Remember it? It was all too short.
Now let the Juniors swell with pride. They are not to be blamed, however,
for "Vanity Fair" was an accomplishment of which to be proud. "Koos"
paid the price of admission to the vaudeville, eats, dancing, and sent even a
telegram to one's "best" friend.
Wlhat could be more beautiful to the Seniors for their last social activity
than the Rainbow Party, in other words, the Junior-Senior Banquet held
at the Masonic Temple, June 12. Decorations and the food carried out the
tantalizing color scheme of the rainbow party. The girls' favors were charm-
ing nosegays while the boys, were snappy crickets. After the program of
toasts, even the sad Seniors forgot that this was their farewell party, in the
evening of dancing, fun, and frolic which followed. VVasn't it a wonderful
party, Seniors? Juniors, we congratulate you. What an appropriate close
to our school career-a Rainbow Party!

T one time during the history of Free-
port High, Debating and Oratory
played an important part in the ac-
tivities of the school. There were ora-
toricalcontests between the best spokesmen of
the school, and the debating teams, composed
of boys and girls, frequently competed neigh-
boring high schools in interesting debates. Each
time Freeport won honors. Then gradually the
interest in debating declined. The oratorical con-
tests Were held but debating seemed to have
become a lost art.
At last in the fall of 1922 there was a great re-
vival in debating. The leader of this interesting
movement was Mr. G. W. Campbell, the instructor of public speaking in
F. H. S. He stimulated an interest for debating among the students of his
classes. He gave them practice in argumentation and extemporaneous
speaking. He trained their voices for oratorical use. When he saw that some
of the students had the ability to do strong forceful speaking, he suggested the
organization of debating teams. Immediately the students took up the idea
and formed two teams, one for the boys and one for the girls. Mr. Campbell
made arrangements for a debate between the boys, team and Rockford High
School on March 23. A debate was also arranged for the girls' team with
Belvidere High School onfApril 13.
At the beginning of the new year Mr. Campbell instructed the members
of both teams in the preparation of debate briefs on the chosen questions.
They collected all the facts possible to make well founded arguments. The
thorough preparation of the question was proved in the outcome of the debates
when the boys won a double victory and the girls, team scored a single victory.

The Boys, Debate
One of the very interesting innovations added to our high school activities
this year was the Boys' Debating Team formed in the public speaking classes
under the direction of one of our ablest instructors, G. W. Campbell.
The boys in the Debating Team worked hard through the year to prepare
for a debate with an old-time rival, Rockford High School. On March 23, a
joint debate was held at Rockford and in our own high school auditorium
on the question: "Resolved that the social and athletic organizations of the
middle western universities and colleges should be limitedf'
The boys on our negative team who debated at Rockford were William
Zartman, William Steffen, and Milton Babcock. Those on the afiirmative,
debating at Freeport were Marvin Burt, Robert Ellis, and Clarence Johnson.
The alternate on the afiirmative was Vernon Fryg on the negative, Howard
The judges were Professor Birkbeck and Robert E. Soynn.
The question was a difficult one but our boys skillfully managed their
subject and gained a double victory over the Rockford team.
The debate held at Freeport was presented before a large audience. The
first speaker of the afiirmative team was Marvin Burt who brought out
clearly to his opponents that scholarship should be the primary concern of
college life and that athletics was foremost in the minds of college students.
Clarence Johnson stressed the expense of hiring a coach for the team and
also traveling expenses of the team itself.
Robert Ellis emphasized the fact that athletics, as they now exist in the
colleges, were not fulfilling the purpose for which they were introduced,.and
were not furthering the aim of the school.
Rockford attempted to bring out their side but the rebuttals offered by
the afiirmative were so excellent that they easily demolished all the arguments
presented by the opposing team.
Much credit is due to Mr. Campbell whose untiring efforts as coach made
the double victory possible.

The Girls' Debate
The Girls' Debate Team of Freeport High School met with Belvidere,
April 13, in a joint debate in both cities on the question: "Resolved that
Congress should enact legislation similar in principle to Part II of the National
Insurance Act of 1911 of Great Britain, establishing Compulsory Unemploy-
ment Insurance in the United States Cconstitutionally concededjn.
Both sides of the question were ably presented by each team and in both
cases the afiirmative side gained the victory.
The Freeport Girls did especially well in their extemporaneous speaking
when they gave rebuttals to the opposing side and because of this they won
the decision from the Belvidere negative team in the debate at Freeport.
The girls on the F. H. S. affirmative team who carried off the honors were:
Marguerite Schwarz, Dorothy Fisher, and Edith Hutchison. Those on the
negative team who were less fortunate but who very splendidly presented
their side of the question were: Esther Buterbaugh, Virginia Myer, and Cleo
The debate at Freeport was opened by Marguerite Schwarz who presented
the purpose of her team and her argument, explaining the application of the
law in England and how the unemployed received benelit fronii
Dorothy Fisher, second aiiirmative speaker, outlined the benefits received
by the Contributors to the Unemployment Insurance and also brought out
the reason why the law must be compulsory.
Edith Hutchison closed the argument for the afiirmative side and replied
to the arguments of the opposing team in such a forceful manner that she
completely demolished their arguments.
The debate at Belvidere was a fierce battle between the two teams and in
the final decision of the judges. Belvidere won by a narrow margin of five
The judges at Freeport were: Professor Bradley of Davis, Professor
Reyner of Orangeville, and Superintendent Donner of Lena.
Mr. G. W. Campbell, Public Speaking Instructor, coached the girls and
he placed special emphasis on the extemporaneous speaking, the results of
which were clearly shown by the manner in which the girls presented their
arguments and displayed their thorough knowledge of their subject.

The Girls' Literary Club was organized during the first semester. The girls
styled themselves, "The Cramberries," a name symbolic of the two-told
aim of the club, that is, " to further literary classes, and to combine the better-
ment of scholarship with pleasure."
Each member must maintain a standing of eighty in all subjects. Every
girl in the club is expected to appear on the program at least once during the
year. Any Junior or Senior girl meeting the above requirements may join
after paying the small dues of the club.
,Meetings are held the second Wednesday of each month. One-act plays,
dialogues, readings, speeches on current topics, and musical selections made
the programs varied.
In March the club gave a "green" program followed by a "green" tea at
the social meeting, thus carrying out the sentiments of St. Patrick's day.
The April meeting was more of the nature of speeches on current topics, the
May meeting was the grand finale of the year in the form of a May party.
Miss Moore is the faculty adviser. The officers of the club are: President,
Marguerite Schwarzg Vice-President, Dorothy Fisher, Secretary-Treasurer,
Alice I-Iaraldsong Social Chairman, Marjory Burnsg Publicity Chairman,
Viola Fryg Program Chairman, Nonie Kuehnerg Membership Chairman,

organized. Its aim was to further the interests in forensic activities of the
The Forum includes Sophomores, Juniors, and Seniors. Every boy must
have a passing grade in all subjects before he can be admitted. The club

Jack Wilson, as the hero of the play, was the person around whom the
plot centered. He was given 510,000 by his fiancee, Ruth Andre, a social
worker. Ruth's father, alias Churchill Bangs, agreed to doublethe amount
if Ruth could raise 520,000 or over. Churchill had a large sum of money
invested in worthless stock, which he tried to get rid of, with the aid of Jack
Wilson and Jack Kauffman, his twojunior business partners, but Jack Wilson
refused, saying that he would not tell the necessary 'ABusiness Lies". From
this incident a bet is made that Jack would be unable to tell "Nothing But the
Truth" for twenty-four hours.
Betty Brokhausen and Roberta Emrich, as two chorus girls, visited Jack
Kauffman at his office. Later Fsther Buterbaugh, Churchill's wife, was
made aware of the fact that they had visited Churchill, and not Jack.
Klein Bardell was sold some of the "phony', stock. After finding its
worthlessness he sold it to Philip Freidag, a Bishop, and co-worker with
Ruth Andre in her social work.
Jack Wilson was invited to the home of Mr. and Mrs. Buterbaugh-Bangs
for a week-end party. Marjorie Burns, as the ever present French maid,
was perfectly fitted to her part, and performed it with great ease. Marian
Johnson, a friend of Ruth Andre, was also a member of the house-party.
Marian rendered several "marvelous" vocal selections but Jack told her they
were rotten because he could tell nothing but the truth.
Jack apparently found that it is sometimes necessary to be a good liar for,
after the wager was won, he told some "whoppers", righted all the wrongs,
and caused the "happy ever afterv ending.

The Polaris of1923
It is an instinct of the human heart when life has reached its sunset, to
gaze back upon the joyous, carefree days of youth and each one of us, if fate
so decrees, will eventually reach that day in the future when, as mature men
and women of the World, one of our most priceless possessions will be the
sacred memory of our happy school days.
It is with the thought of that future day in mind, that this year book,
the history of one adventuresome year, has been compiled by the class of
1923 of Freeport High School and We, the editors and staff, have gathered
together, between these covers, the precious bits of drama, pathos, and
humor ofour every-day life, Gladly We present the result to you as the
Annual Polaris of 1923. 1

High School News
N accordance with one ofthe unwritten laws of the Senior Class,
high school news was published in the Freeport Journal-Standard
throughout the school year of 1922-23. Early in the First semester
two news stads were chosen. The members of the Wednesday
Edition staE were: Editor, Vaille Dry, Reporters: Robert Ellis.
Robert Burns, Virginia Myer, and Bernice Sprattler. Those on the staff
of the Saturday Edition were: Editor, John Hawkins, Reporters: Marguerite
Schwar7, Leota Mellom, Doris Kerch, and William Place.
Aided by their study in journalism and by the careful direction of the
editors, each staff was very efiicient in Finding and editing news of interest
to both the student body and to the townspeople. The news of all High
School activities was presented to the public to give them a clearer under-
standing of our school life.
The second semester two new staffs were appointed. The editor of the
VVednesday Edition was Marian DeBell and the reporters werei Lucille
VVaggoner, Clara Staas, Agatha lVlcCuen, Edith Hutchison, and Fred Johnson.
The members of the Saturday staff were: Editor, Fred Montiegel, Reporters,
Catherine Cunningham, Irma Strassburger, Hannah Dwyer, and Elroy Yde.
The work has been an advertisement of the Senior Composition classes
and it has shown the results of studying newspaper work and journalism in
high school. The news has been a very successful medium of advertising
and boosting all school aiairs. The Senior class has been very proud of this
organization and it is with deep regret that the staffs turn over their work
to the Class of ,2-l.

HE Burredges lived on Main Street, Millersville. Main Street
X in Millersville had never figured in a book of modern fiction. .
-H The residents of the homes along that village street would have
scorned the idea of being hand picked for romance-or that the
simple annals of their livcs would have held .charm or fascination 'Si'
iw for the world that lay beyond the hills that almost cloistered their little town.
Down towards the last lingering blocks of Main Street, in a big house in a
big yard surrounded by a picket fence, from which groups of once white ii
A pickets had long since deserted, lived the Burredges. S
The Burredge's house reared a high square front with a row of peepholes 5
below the somewhat ornate cornice, two windows gazed clear-eyed with
ruffled lashes. A porch of dignity-too narrow for comfort, double front
doors with oval panels on which magnificent stags reared massive antlers.
as There was something noticeable about the front of this house, at once sg
pleasant and severe. 3 Houses sometimes bespeak the characters, at least the
is characteristics, of their dwellers, and if this is so, the house indicated a person
whom one might admire, but with whom one took no liberties.
Living in the Burredge house were Mrs. Luella Burredge, and her children Ei
Lucy and Leander, called for short, Lu and Lee. if
Mrs. Burredge has been a Miller, one of the Millers from whom the village is
it got its name, but she had not always lived in the town which had adopted
S her great-uncle's name when Indians stalked on a trail tallying for the most SQ
Q part with Main Street. Q
.Q She had come, an orphan girl, to Aunt Luella's home, something after f
rs the manner of "Little Orphant Annie". Aunt Luella, with high motives,
,. and perhaps mistaken zeal, pruned and trimmed and clipped all budding A
gl. sprouts of waywardness and girlish fancies, provided her with serviceable S
raiment, and taught her what Aunt Luella called the Uwomanly arts". True ta
if. for her, the girl's accomplishments did deserve the name of art, if you wish
If to apply the term to cakes of fairy lightness, and stitches as fine as Jack it
FC Frost's tracery.
Having accomplished all this, Aunt Luella, much after the manner of a 5
Duchess, arranged a marriage between her neice and Roman, the son of her
ai old friend, Jason Burredge.

My heart is filled with music,
When the ol' springtime comes round,
With the new green things a 'growin'
In thefreshness of the ground.
When the trees are gettin' greener,
fin' the vi'lets peekin' through,
An' the air is sorto' halmy,
An' the sky a hrighter hlue.
The hirds jist keep a'singin'
Throughout the livelong day,
With their little throats most hustin ' in
With the melody so gay.
Seems like never-ending goodness,
Has settled here to stay.
When the orchards are in blossom,
AnLthesun4 ' in-May,-.4.+
With a lazy "I don't eare"!
That makes lie more worth livin ',
When ol' springtime's in the air.
Sweet apple blossoms hy the garden wall,
You n 'er canjind ajiower hah' so fair,
We thank thee, Mother Nature, for them all,
dndfor, o'er them, thy watchful care.
Frail hahy hlossoms, soft, pink and white,
You spread your scent, so sweet and rare,
Your heauties pure, our eyes delight,
We wish for hlossoms everywhere.
They tip and tilt and nod and sway,
Als any spirit, gay andfree,
The tinted petals ioat away,
W hat joys we 'd know,-were we like thee!

The week before Christmas, a toy committee assisted by several members
of the faculty, and with the hearty co-operation of the entire student body,
put over a campaign to give toys to the needy children of Freeport.
The toys were collected from the students and other residents of the city.
They were painted, re-dressed, and re-decorated until they looked like new.
They were then distributed to the children Whose names had been turned in
by the grade school pupils. The money to pay for paint, cloth, and other
necessary repairs was collected in banks placed in each room.
The committee who so eiiiciently accomplished this undertaking was com-
posed of Kathryn Babcock, VVilliam Place, Amelia Mary Younglove, Francis
Heinen, Ruth Andre, and Loretta Corman. The committee were most
ably assisted by Mr. VVilliams, Miss Stewart, Miss McNary, Mr. Garns, who
did much ofthe repair work, and Miss Vennell, who dressed the dolls.
The toy campaign was so successful that it is hoped that in the future this
distribution of toysjust before Christmas will be an annual activity of Freeport

The C ooki ng Exhibit
On February twenty-first, the cooking classes under the competent direc-
tion of Miss Normile staged a very interesting exhibition. It was not the
usual show of expensive and fancy foods but instead was a faithful demonstra-
tion of the work actually done by the various cooking classes. All kinds and
classes of exhibits were displayed from inexpensive home-made soaps to the
most elaborate molded solids and rich fruit cakes. Among the instructive
features of the exhibit was the example of table setting and table decoration.
Another intersting display was that of the invalid tray, food and diets for
the sick. The food value of various recipes was determined and some dishes
were prepared and labeled with their actual food values.
All classes also made posters whose snappy slogans and attractive art work
brought home very effectively certain elementary truths about diet.
The exhibition was very successful and was viewed by about three hundred
people. The food was sold to the visitors to defray the expenses of the display.
This cooking exhibit was a new idea and really most instructive, since it
showed the parents and townspeople, what worth-while work the cooking
classes were doing.
Good Book W.eek
The fourth annual 'KGood Book VVeek', was sponsored by the Girls,
Orange and Black Clubs and the boys' Hi-Y Clubs. Seven representatives
were chosen from each club and a room was assigned to each representative.
This committee followed the plan previously worked out by the Athletic
Council. As a result of the drive, over twelve hundred new books were added
to the already creditable library, among which contributions was one set of
Warner,s Library of Universal Literature, valued at about one hundred and
seventy-five dollars. The girls, clubs won the contest by a very small margin,
all of the clubs having done splendid work.
The new feature of the drive this year was the collection of paper. The
paper was sold to obtain money to purchase new books. About three tons of
paper, which was collected, netted thirty-six dollars. The boys' clubs won
In connection with Good Book VVeek there was a poster contest to which
all Sophomores were eligible. Two committees judged: one committee
composed of students, the other composed of teachers. The latter committee
gave first prize to Harry Oman, second to Charles Furst. The students
gave first place to Gertrude Demeter, second to Charles Furst.

The Moving Picture Machine
Among the activities of the school which were of the greatest importance
in the past year was the purchase of a moving picture machine. The school
had contemplated buying a machine for several years and this desire ulti-
mately became an action. Both for education and entertainment, the value
of the machine to the school is inestimable and the students would certainly
be lost without the newly acquired friend should it suddenly be taken away.
The venture has been very successful and everyone was pleased with the
well-balanced program offered. There were the dramatizations of the classics,
Julius Caesar, The Last Days of Pompeii, Evangeline, Life of Shakespeare,
Treasure Island, and several comedies together with memorial pictures of the
Civil War. The instructive program comprised in part of the following: a
slow motion picture on athletics, the process of building an automobile, an
interesting film showing a modern paper manufacturing plant, a film on elec-
tricity and electrical apparatus, and a Elm showing the making of gas. VVe
also enjoyed the fine illustrated lectures, one, A Trip Through Yellowstone
National Park, and the other on Astronomy.
Much credit for the success of this enterpriseis due to Mr. D. P. VVilliams
through whose efforts the machine was secured. Mr. Williams has worked
very hard to obtain the right kind of pictures for the school. A committee,
composed of Leone Brannon, Isadora Haight, George Keck, and Twyla Kei-
ster, assisted Mr. Williams in the work of preparing programs. Klein Bardell,
Stanley Byram, and Luther Stahl attended to the mechanical end of the work.
These students should also be commended for their enthusiasm in promoting
such a line undertaking.
The expense of the machine and of renting the films was defrayed by col-
lections taken up at each exhibition.
Freeport High School may well be proud of possessing such a fine.
machine. It is a great benefit and provides some necessary relief from the dull
routine of class work. It will pay back in benefits to school and students
many times over what it cost. H

l GUR years have passed since we first
entered this school as Freshmen. Now
that we are Seniors ready to enter
upon life's journey, a feeling of sad-
ness comes over us, for we shall miss
this school which has come to mean so much to us.
VVhen we came here as humble Freshmen, four
years ago, little did we dream of the opportuni-
-ties, as well as pleasures, that awaited us. But
we very soon awoke and rose to meet our respon-
1 sibilities. From the first our class has shown
much interest in every school activity. Even
when we were Freshmen, we were represented in
Athletics, as several of our classmates were mem-
bers ofthe track team. But it was in our Sopho-
more year that we really proved to the rest of the
school, by means of our Oratorical Contest, that
we could do things, and do them exceptionally well.
KATH RYN BABcocK
VVhen we reached the stage ofjuniors, with the splendid assistance of Mrs.
Scott and Mr. Williams, we gave a very successful "Immigration Partyn. The
Junior Play "Stop Thief" was exceptionally clever, but why should it not be
with such competent directors as Miss McNary and Mr. VVilliams, and such
talent as our class possesses? The crowning glory of our Junior year, the
Junior-Senior Banquet, was made possible only through the assistance of Miss
Normile and her cooking classes.
But now we have come to the close of our Senior year. Our race is run, and
we can look back over this year, feeling well satisfied because the things we
undertook, in this, the most exacting, of our four years in High School, have
been attended with success. Our class play "Come Out of the Kitcheni'
under the direction of Miss Boyce and Mr. Williams, was a production of
which we may well be proud.
The, too, members of our class have helped to make the musical comedy,
"Miss Bob White", one of the best ever produced by any all-Freeport cast.
VVe must not forget that through the efforts of several members of our class,
debating has been revived and our school is once more taking a prominent
place in debating. Again we have shown special talent in oratory. Witness
the Junior-Senior Reading and Extemporaneous Contest. VVe are, indeed,
proud of the fact that our class possesses such splendid orators.
But the biggest and best of our accomplishments is the "Polaris". The
staff under the direction of Mrs. Scott has been intensely interested in pro-
ducing a book worthy of the name.
VVe have worked hard to make these four years count. VVe have striven to
make a success ofeach undertaking and we feel confident that we have attained
our goal and that the coming Senior Class will be proud to follow in our foot

ODAY the United States stands fore-
most among the nations of the world.
Hersupremacy on land and sea is
e recognized by all countries. The
principles and ideals for which she
stands are lofty and permanent, she is the model
republic of the world.
We, her citizens, are proud of our country's
glory. We rejoice in her many triumphs and
victories. We exult in the strength of her ideals
and the justice of her principles. Yet how few of
us realize the sacrifices which made possible this
glory. How few of us appreciate the price which
this supremacy has exacted. e
The History of the United States is a record of
great sacrifices. In 1776 the nation was born out
of the sacrifice of the lives of a few New England farmers who loved liberty
more than life and hated tyranny with an inconceivable hatred. From that
first bit of bloodshed till the present day this nation's chief claim to glory lay
in the fact that she had men who would sacrifice all for her ideals.
Again in 1865 the sons of the Union gave their lives that the nation might
be free from the curse of slavery. ln 1898, the United States again answered
the call of dire need and with the lives of some of her hnest men, saved the
starving Cubans from the crushing heel of despotic Spain. And finally in 1917
in the name of suhfering humanity she sent two million of her young men to
the Helcls of France, there to suffer, bleed and die. Thus since her first stand
for freedom, the United States has called upon her citizens to uphold her prin-
ciples and ideals upon the fields of battle.
For their great devotion, we have been grateful, for their sacrifice, we have
wept. But in the solution of our own problems, have we forgotten them? Are
we living according to the standards and ideals for which they died? Are we
keeping the trust which our forefathers gave us at the birth of this nation?
This nation of ours is a Christian nation. The men who have died to preserve
her honor have died with the cross of Christ before them. We do not all have
the opportunity to die for our nation but we do have the opportunity to live
for her. We may so live every day as to be a credit to the nation's ideals.
Only by living according to the highest ideals may we be worthy of the name
Americans. Only by cherishing the memory of our honored dead are we re-
paying them for their sacrifices and if we cherish their memories, then We will
stand for the best, the strongest, the purest American ideals.
Senior Mantle Speech
LONGED-FOR period in our lives has
come. lt is that period which comes
to all students, who turn their foot-
steps into the pathway of success,
with undaunted determination and
confidence. Juniors, there will always be difii-
culties to face, no matter where you turn. Each
obstacle will tax your strength of Will, and the
capacity of your ability.
Every thoughtless act, each forgotten word,
and all of your simple inspirations and fantastic
dreams will silently and swiftly be woven into the
network of you reputation, popularity, and
e - friendships. And then, slowly, but more strongly
will these weave the golden or tarnished network
of your true character. From that true character,
through activity, will be wrought your power and your fame in the eyes of
When you abanodn the frivolity, which is expected of you as Juniors, and
seriously don the mantle of Seniors, you will also meet with greater responsi-
bilities, which are strewn upon the shore of the surging sea of life. Then is
when your souls should be filled with great desires and ambitions, which will
some day uplift and further the progress of humanity.
We Seniors, captain of our souls, are now slipping from the stringent
moorings of lf. H. S. and shall soon Hing wide our sails upon the sea of life.
We are not glad to leave our home of knowledge and learning. We do
so with a dull ache in our hearts. But we are glad and thankful for the seeds
of determination, ambition and desire, which F. H. S. has planted deeply
within our souls. You may rest assured that we shall cultivate those seeds
and further their growth through life.
Livef qfgreat men all remind nr,
We can make our lives sublime,
And departing, leave behind ur,
Foolprifzls on the sands of lime.
Juniors, perhaps you may smile derisively when you gaze upon the capacious
foot-prints which we are leaving upon the sands of time in F. H. S. But
check your mirth, for we aimed to have them so, and we are proud of their
size. Now it is up to you to follow and to step into those foot-prints. Step
into them cautiously, and resolutely, for they will be difficult to fill.
VVe are confident in your ability. Nevertheless, you must labor strenuously
in order to attain the goal which we have gained.
With the bestowing of this mantle, we, the Class of '23, offer to you, our
most sincere wishes for your success.

t unior Mantle Speech
' HIS is a momentous occ asion. Wle are
gathered here for a definite and solemn
purpose-to witness the passing of an
old administration and the inaugura-
tion ofa new one.
Seniors, you are to be complimented upon the
successful completion of a great task. For the past
year you have been the leaders of our school. You
have borne its standards high and now consign
them into new hands. Everywhere you have suc-
ceeded in upholding the honor of Freeport High
School. May you continue to do so. You have con-
tributed well to athleticsg moreover, in fdramatics
and in oratory you have made outstanding ac-
- -eef complishments. But greater than this, the Senior
Class of nineteen hundred and twenty-three has
ever waved high the banner of good scholarship.
Now you are about to seek new fields. After four years, you are about to
forsake the halls of this institution in quest of the new and untried. For
some, class room instruction is at an end, but let education end only with
life itself. Some one has said, "That human being who can learn no more
is not worthy to live." You have begun your life's work with a high school
education. Even at this stage you have an advantage. Many have been
denied that privilege.
A popular slogan among the soldiers of the late war was "Carry On!"
Your task is begun and you, too, must carry on in a milder but greater
Now the time has come for others to take up the work that you have left.
Such is the order of life.
The Seniors of nineteen hundred and twenty-four are about to step into
your places, and will take up the standard with high hopes.
With the example you have set, together with our ideals before us, we shall
endeavor to carry on our work successfully. Our capability has been tried
in many ways and, for the most part, we have not been found wanting. In
scholarship, dramatics, athletics, and social activities, the Junior Class of
nineteen hundred and twenty-three has had its part. VVe, too, have had a
place in the sun.
We now assume a position of leadership. A responsibility must be taken
upon ourselves. Trusting that the crucial test shall find us eager and alert
for its coming, we now pledge ourselves true to the cause and the Orange
and Black of Freeport High School.
