O our Principal, Luther Addison
Fulwider, whose unerring judg-
e ment in the directing of our destinies,
for the past twenty years, and Whose
abiding faith in our greater future
has as a citizen, as a friend, and as a
teacher made Freeport High School
what it is today. To him who has
brought us into our heritage, We the
class of 1924, lovingly and with re-
spect dedicate this, the twentieth vol-
ume of the Annual Polaris.

HE purpose of this book is to
transform the fleeting and tran-
sient memories of high school days
into a permanent reminder of those
daysg and if in the years to come this
book gladdens its owner with a tan-
gible record of his high school years,
and inspires him with a feeling of
reverence for the spirit of youth and
for its joys, sorrows, and anibitions,
We shall feel that its making has
been Worth While.

Junior Class History
I S WE, the Junior class of 1924, review the
l last few years of our life, we find it very
similar to the life of certain plants. Only
three years ago we were taken from our early en-
vironment and transplanted in Freeport High
School. In our new surroundings we developed
new roots. The strongest of these was the main
root, scholarship. From this, many side roots
were developed. These roots were developed by
Eleanor Richter, Bernice Weiler, Vernon Fry, and
David Burrell. During the early months of our
new life, our anchorage root, athletics, began to
develop. Such fellows as Russ Goodrich, Fritz
Steien, Jay Pollock, Bunny Paul, Romi Altfilisch,
I LaVerne Grell, LeRoy Farnum, and Bill Brooks
furnished nourishment for this root. Even our
hair roots Cbanking, organizations, music and
dramaticsl began to develop during the first year. This, however, was due
to outside influences, the upper classmen and faculty.
By the beginning. of the second year in Freeport High School the plant
had developed into a small tree. The heartwood of this tree was scholar-
ship. The sapwood, however, was not of the right stuff and in a veryshort
time the tree began to look sickly. The tree could not get enough support
to develop branches. It was not until the latter part of the winter that one
could see any signs of revived life. It was then that the tree began to de-
velop two branches, the biblical contest and the oratorical contest. At the
close of the second year people used to stand by the side of the tree and
wonder if it would ever develop any strong branches, leaders. They would
even sneeringly remark: "Well, I wonder if the poor thing will ever have
energy enough to put forth leaves ?"
Today, the people are making a very different type of remark. Why?
Because at the beginning of this year our branches not only began to de-
velop, but in a very short time leaves came out in the form of star Juniors
in football, basketball, and track. Other leaves, our representatives on the
Weekly Polaris Staff, began to develop. During January ever so many
leaves burst forth. These were our representatives in Kathleen. By March
our tree was covered with leaves because so many of our number proved
what they were capable of doing at the Junior Carnival. a
Have you noticed our latest developments? We have six new
branches. These are our six Honor Society representatives. We also have
some of the most beautiful new leaves. These leaves were developed by the
Juniors who made "Green Stockings" and the Junior-Senior banquet a
We are expecting our tree to have flowers next year. The color, shade,
odor, and beauty of these flowers will depend not only on the ambition, co-
operation, and stored energy of the entire plant, but upon the food supply
from our surroundings, the alumni, the faculty, and the under classmen.

I just must tell you about the Leap Year Carnival I went to March lst.
I never enjoyed myself more in all my life.
When I came in the door someone punched my ticket and told me I
could go to the movie on it, so I went. It was funny, and after I got
through laughing in there I bought some tickets to go to some of the side
shows. First I went to the big shows in the big room they called the as-
sembly. The shows were called "The Boys' Minstrel" and "The Girls'
Follies." I enjoyed both of them because in both of them they sang songs
and cracked jokes. The boys were all blacked up and the girls wore darl-
ing costumes. Some of the rest of the girls went down to the gym to see
some girls dressed half like boys and half like girls who danced and sang.
They said they were good.
I wanted to see some of the side shows, so another girl and I, after
arming ourselves with candy and eskimo pies, started out. We went to see
"The Corn Remover" and Imagine! we found a rooster eating corn. In the
"Trip to Heaven" we found a "pair o' dice." While we were waiting to have
our fortunes told by a lady who told me just wonderful things, we took a
ride on the Scenic Railroad. It certainly was cool in there.
Then we wandered through the halls for a while to save our money.
Everybody seemed to be there. It was fun seeing if we could tell which
were teachers. We noticed some of the people receiving telegrams and we
wished we would get one too.
They had a police force there too, and we liked to watch some one get
hauled to the "station" for not chewing gum or some such thing.
We noticed some of the names of the shows but decided we had spent
enough for a while. Among them were "Have Your Picture Taken While
You Wait," "The Fish Pond," "The Reigning Favorite of Freeport," "The
famous drama, 'The Co-ed's Dream," "Cause for Divorce," "High
J umpers" and others.
Soon it was time to go down to the gym for the dance. They gave us
little programs so we could write down our dances. The gym looked
simply wonderful. It was decorated in purple and white. There was even
a booth decorated in purple and white where we could get punch. It didn't
seem a bit long till the dancing was over too, and we had to get our coats
and hats and go home.
' I certainly had a good time and I hope that there will be another one
when I visit Freeport again.

Sophomore Class History
OMING back to Freeport High School we,
the class of '26, settled down to accomplish
great things, and to put our class down on
the Freeport High School map as the peppiest and
most successful Sophomore class in its history.
We wanted to do things such that the classes fol-
lowing us would say "the class of '26 did it."
The first thing of importance was the elec-
tion of our well qualified officers. John Graham
was elected president, Maurice McClanathan,
vice-president, Edwin Hall, secretary and treas-
urer. With these competent leaders, a skillful
advisor, and a strong board of control we could
not go wrong.
We At the beginning of the football season we
Ozro Hill were very well represented on both teams. On
the heavyweights there were "Bunny" Paul, and
La Verne Grell, both of whom were all-conference men, John Bentley,
Harold Neidigh, and Lee Jones. In the lightweight division there were
William Stewart, Quinter Bere, Don Blackiston, Romaine Altfilisch, Ted
Heinen, Fred J ephson, Bill Moore, Rus Lawson, and Ted Hall
The next place where our class showed its worth was in the romantic
musical comedy "Kathleen", Elizabeth Anderson, one of our class-mates,
played one of the leading parts in a charming fashion. Many of our voices
also filled the choruses, while some of our voices helped make the Treble
Clef Club and Glee Club the musical organizations they are today.
Our real work of the year was the annual Sophomore Oratorical con-
test. There were six contestants chosen, three girls and three boys, out of
the many who tried out in the preliminary contest. All the speeches were
very closely contested and well given. It was with great difficulty that the
judges awarded the prizes to Vades Mellom, first of the girls, and John
Graham, first of the boys. '
When basketball started our class also did their share in fulfilling
their quota. In the interclass tournament our lightweights won the cham-
pionship. Of the heavyweights Harold Neidigh and Ted Heinen were
Sophomores. Of the lightweights there were Herbert Stimpert, Quinter
Bere, and Ozro Hill. The Sophomores were also very well represented on
both the Track and Relay teams.
Maybe we were a peppy and brilliant class and maybe we weren't.
Maybe we set an example for the classes that will follow us and maybe we
didn't, but there is one thing I am sure of-our officers, our class advisor,
and the Sophomore class as a whole tried hard and wanted to do their best.
There was the right school spirit in everything that they did. And as we
pass into our junior year, to take up bigger tasks, let us hope that we shall
succeed as well.

U Freshman A Class History
FTER reading some of the stories that are
T told of the horrors of a Freshman's en-
trance into High School We were almost
afraid to enter upon our High School careers.
We entered school in September, 1923, many
of us who had no brothers or sisters in High
School had wobbly knees and a shaking feeling in
our bodies. We were used to marching up the
stairs in orderly columns. When several of us
tried this We got the "horse laugh" from the
more experienced students. For the first Week
many of us were in all of the classes except the
right ones Where We were supposed to be.
Charles Hiuis Three or four Weeks after our entrance a
reception was given to the Freshmen by the Seniors. This was to make us
feel at home and to get acquainted with our older brother and sister class-
During our first semester in Freeport High School We had the honor
of Winning the paper and book contest. This shows that the Freshmen are
a Wide-awake class and that each year they will accomplish more until
In the middle of our second semester a class meeting was called to
elect Freshman A Officers. Robert Prescott was elected President, Cath-
erine Stibgen, Vice-President, and Wilbert Seidel, Secretary and Treas-
urer. Wilbert is nearly breaking his back carrying our funds to the bank.
We were represented in the relay by Robert Rowley, one of our best
athletes. We also have Edison the inventor in our class. He spends his
time inventing Ways to get out of doing his Work.
' We are confident that We shall graduate as the class of 1927 With
many honors. If our last year is like our first We shall be leaders in every
activity, and head the Honor-Roll every time.
Freshman B Class History A
6333 fsfxfx X sea AGA-A 4?
UR class history began on January 28, 1924.
1 On that eventful day eighty Freshmen B's
hurried to High School determined that
their class would be the best class of any of the
classes that had ever graduated from Freeport
High School ,or that ever would graduate from
that school. After much rushing around and
many hasty inquiries of dignified Seniors We
finally found our classrooms. I
Miss Reitzell hinted to her algebra class that
the Freshman B's should have a class meeting.
1 Mr. Fulwider didn't have any rest until We had
one. On March 14, 1924 We held our first class
Ruth Wilson meeting. The following officers were elected:
President-Marion Ridgway, Vice-President-Roy Roddewig, Secretary-
We were all very much elated over the fact that We had elected our
officers before the Freshmen A's had elected their ofiicers.
The Junior Orange and Black Club girls invited the Freshmen B girls
to a party at the Y. W. C. A. Many of the girls attended it and all who
were there had a very enjoyable time.
One April day we were all surprised to hear that there would be a
class meeting in Miss Reitzell's room. We were all there on time eager to
learn the reason for the meeting. We plannd for a class party and then
found we had to dig deep into our pockets in search of stray coins with
which to swell our treasury.
Miss Parker has organized a Freshmen Chorus which includes all of
the "freshies." Every Thursday during fifth hour We practice songs.
Some of the boys are trying for the relay race. We all hope that they
will win honors for their school and for their class.
As yet we have not distinguished ourselves. But we will. Just wait

Heavyweight Coach Lightweight Coach Business Manager
Glen Holmes Earle Fricker Charles Cross
Coaches and Manager
Pat, as he is called by the players under him, continued the good work
this season that he has been doing the last two years. He is the friend of
all, and yet is regarded with a great deal of respect when on the field. It is a
well known fact that a team coached by Glen Holmes never quits, and it
is this power of instilling a fighting spirit into his men that goes such a
long way toward making him the successful coach that he is. Pat was one
of the athletes who upheld the glory of F. H. S. in past years, and he is
doing the same thing now in a different way. He expects to bring several
championships to Freeport next year.
This was Coach Fricker's first year with us. He accomplished the
difficult task of turning out a good football team from inexperienced ma-
terial. The fighting qualities of his team are well known to all the Big
Seven lightweight teams. He, without a doubt, developed the best bas--
ketball five in the Conference and one of the best lightweight teams of the
state. He is a graduate of Whitewater Normal, where he was one of their
star athletes. He has been popular with all the students and had the con-
fidence and respect of all players under him.
The financial side of athletics is probably neglected by most people
and yet it is one of the most important sides. It involves a great deal of
work, time, and worry, and Mr. Cross handled it in a most efficient manner.
No season is entirely successful without a good financial report, and with
Mr. Cross directing, a good report is assured. He has filled this position
for the last five years and has given our school a sound athletic financial

Heavyweight Football Season
OOKING at it from any angle, the 1923 season was one of the best
Freeport has enjoyed for many years. Heavyweight football in Free-
port High School has been on the upward trend for several years and
this was another step ahead. '
A poor start was responsible for two defeats at the beginning of the
season. There was a wealth of material and plenty of fight, but the team
just couldn't get going. However, neither the fans nor players were dis-
heartened, and a successful season was the result.
The outstanding thing of .the entire season was the remarkable "come-
back" staged by the team. It was not only a feature of the Big Seven Con-
ference but of the entire state football season. It started with a 25 to 0
win over Joliet, on a muddy field. This gave the necessary confidence and
the next week the team journeyed to DeKalb, and gave them a 20 to 6 de-
feat. This was the biggest "dope upset" of the Conference race.
West Aurora, Conference champions, got one of their worst scares in
their game at Freeport. Both teams showed stronger on the defense than
on the offense as is shown by the low score of 3 to O. Freeport really out-
played their opponents and gained many more yards, but the educated toe
of West Aurora's fullback gave them the victory, as it did in several other
The crowning point of the season was the defeat of Rockford 9 to 3.
This had not been done since 1916 and never before on Rockford's own
field. The battle-cry all over the school was "Beat Rockford", and the team
went to Rockford determined to "do or die". Rockford's cheering was an-
swered by an equally loud 'roar of "Go, Freeport, Go!" Rockford started
out with a rush and it looked like a "walkaway", but Freeport tightened up
and from then on it was one spectacular battle. Time and again Rockford
threatened to score, but the Freeport line was a veritable stonewall and
Rockford's hopes slowly faded away. A forward pass brought a touch-
down for Freeport, and a beautiful place kick accounted for the other three
points. It was a wonderful game and a wonderful victory, and will be re-
membered by Freeport Fans for many years.
To Coach Holmes goes much credit for the success of the team. He
not only coached the men in the finer points of the game, but also instilled
a fighting spirit into the players that is so essential to a successful team.
The loyal support of the students was another important factor.
With most of the team back, and with the development of new players
the team ought to be invincible next year, and nothing short of the cham-
pionship is expected.

ARLY in the year the Athletic Council was reorganized under the new
officers. Milton Babcock was elected President, Esther Buterbaugh,
Vice President, and Virginia Smith, Secretary-Treasurer. Since there
were so many who had graduated, who were in the Athletic Council the
year before, a committee was appointed to choose members of the diEerent
classes to take the places of those who had left.
Each member of the council was given a class room in which he had
entire charge of the sale of tickets for basketball and football games. The
student season ticket sale for the football and basketball games, as well as
for the basketball tournament, was managed very successfully in this
In the adult season ticket sales the entire down-town district was di-
vided into small sections, two students in the council taking each section.
In this way the whole down-town district was canvassed.
Besides supervising the sale of tickets, the Athletic council advertised
all the games by means of posters which they put in store windows, on
automobiles, and in other conspicuous places.
A wooden frame was placed in a conspicuous place in the front hall
in which cards, with the names of the games to be played, the names of
the opponents, and the date were inserted a week before every game.
This is the second year of the Athletic Council and it has been a par-
ticularly successful one. The Council enables the athletics of the school
to be under the control of a representative student body which not only
relieves the teachers of unnecessary work but also allows the students to
share in the financial responsibility of the athletic organization.

Lightweight Football Season
HEN the call was given for lightweight football candidates the
usual large number reported and hopes were high for a successful
team. One thing stood out and that was the lack of experienced
football men. It takes one or two seasons of active playing to bring out
the best football that a man is capable of playing. The only way to over-
come experience is to have a team with a lot of fight, and this team cer-
tainly had it.
The first three games resulted in two victories and one tie. The two
victories were over Warren, and over the LaSalle second team. Freeport
was greatly outweighed by both teams but this did not stop our players.
The tie was with East Aurora. The game was featured by the strong
defense of the team, especially when near their own goal.
The next game with Elgin resulted in one of the three defeats. The
other two were at the hands of DeKalb and Rockford. All three teams
were strong, but Freeport gave them all a real battle. In the Rockford
game the team fought against odds with a great deal of determination
until the last whistle blew. g
The Joliet game was the most thrilling of the season. It was played
in a sea of mud, but in spite of this fact a good brand of football was dis-
played by both teams. Joliet scored in the early part of the game but
failed to add the extra point. The ball went back and forth Without much
change until late in the game when an intercepted pass and a long run
gave Freeport a touch down. The much needed extra point was added and
Freeport won by the close score of 7 to 6.
All during the season there were several good men fighting for each
position and this caused many changes in the lineup. Several regulars
were shifted to diierent positions to make room for a promising recruit.
In this Way several men who did not receive a letter got a great deal of
experience. This fact, coupled with the fact that only four letter men will
be lost through graduation, makes it certain that we shall have a fine team
next year. Coach Fricker deserves a great deal of credit for turning out
such a fine team in a single season.
One of the most important things in the success of a team is the sup-
port of the fans. It sometimes happens that there is not much interest in
the lightweights. They deserve all possible backing, not only because they
play the same game as the heavyweights, but because they play it every
bit as hard. Much heavyweight material is also first developed in the light-
weight division. The loyal support of the students, together with a wealth
of good players, gives promise of a most successful team next year.

OON after the close of the football season the inter-class basketball tournament
was held and basketball practice then started in earnest. A large number of can-
didates reported and the squad was soon cut down to about sixteen.
The season opened on New Year's day with a 26 to 16 victory over Belvidere. The
team displayed good basketball for so early in the season and a successful team was
expected. The next week a non-conference game was lost to Rockford at Rockford, the
score being 14 to 19.
After defeating East Aurora the team journeyed to Elgin and gave the conference
champions one of their hardest battles. The game was marked by poor oiiiciating.
The old bugbear of basket ball, "staleness," overtook the team and three consec-
utive defeats was the result. Two of them were at the hands of mediocre teams and
the third, by Joliet, would have resulted in a victory for Freeport had they played the
basket ball of which they were capable.
The second game with Rockford was another hard fought contest, with Rockford
winning in the last few minutes. Because of the action of the conference officials this
game did not count in the Big Seven race but in spite of this fact much interest was
shown in the game and it was played before a capacity crowd.
In the district tournament held at Freeport We were eliminated by Rockford in the
second gameg this closed the basket ball season. Rockford won the tournament and
represented this district at the sectional tournament. Two Freeport men were placed
on the all-tournament team. p
Freeport had one of the best defensive teams in the conference but all during the
season were weak in getting points. This was responsible for most of the defeats.

UT of a large number of promising candidates, Coach Fricker turned out one of
the best lightweight teams Freeport High School has ever had. From the very
Hrst game it was apparent that we had a combination hard to beat, and such
proved to be' the case. V '
A successful start was made when the Belvidere second team wasp defeated 15 to 6.
With this victory to start on, the team went to Rockford and took their measure 18 to
17. As the score indicates the game was very close and was only decided in the last
minute of play.
East Aurora was disposed of in an easy manner, after which came the defeat at
Elgin. The team had an MOH night" and could not get going until the last quarter, and
then it was too late to overcome the big lead held by Elgin. This defeat cost Freeport
the undisputed championship of the Conference. The team went through the rest of
the season with only one more defeat.
Besides tieing' for the Big Seven Championship, the enviable recordwas made of
eight victories and two defeats. The team was very efficient in all branches of the game
and were especially good in a closely fought game. This is shown by the fact that two
games were won by a one point margin and several others by close scores. None of the
team will be lost through graduation and nothing short of a championship, will satisfy
us next year.

HEN Coach Glen Holmes issued a call for candidates for the annual relay race
between Freeport and Rockford about eighty men responded. The race this
year was started by Jay Pollock. He ran against one of Rockford's best and
finished his lap neck and neck with him. Quinter Bere took the baton from Pollock
and when he tinished he was about thirty-five yards ahead of Rockford's man. From
that time our victory was almost assured, for every man on the Freeport team gained
or at least held the lead and when Altfilisch handed the baton to Bender, the Rockford
runner was not yet in sight. Freeport won by about three hundred and fifty yards
against Rockford's win last year of one hundred. A new record was set, the time be-
ing two hours, sixteen minutes, and thirty seconds.
HE next event on the Athletic Program this year is track. When Coach called for
men, at least forty came out. Francis Heinen, who won the first place at the state
meet last year, was elected captain this year. Judging from the comparison of
this year's interclass records and those of last year's, this year's team promises to be
one of which we can all be proud. Practice this year is being held on the new Athletic
Field and the meets will be held there also. The schedule is the best in the history of
the school. There are meets with all of Northern Illinois, Rockford, and Dekalb. Free-
port will send its best to the State meet and to the National Meet at Chicago.

HE number of clubs and organizations in Freeport High School has
been increased two-fold during the past year. The interest shown in
the clubs has certainly been much greater. Parties galore, fairs, and
even a movie at the Lindo were among the many events sponsored by the
Students! What would our High School be without the clubs? What
would we do if the Booster Club ceased to exist? There would be no peppy
athletic assemblies, no social events to which the teams always look for-
ward as a reward for their efforts. The Pep Club was an organization of
girls with much the same purpose as the Booster Club.
Last year the Orange and Black Clubs and the Hi-Y Clubs had so
much doing that we should really be quit lost without them. We should
know that there was not going to be a Hi-Gob Carnival, which we have
come to expect as an event which will surely come sometime during the
French and Spanish is made vastly more interesting for students of
those subjects by the organization of French and Spanish Clubs. These
clubs make it possible for the members to study books and authors of
Spain and France, to hear talks by people who have traveled in those
countries, and to converse in French or Spanish.
It is considered a great honor to be admitted to the Cramberries Club,
the honorary literary society of F. H. S. The club's history will speak for
If there were a rule prohibiting clubs, school would seem like a jail or
dungeon to which we went because we were forced to go, and which would
daily become more monotonous. And the nice thing about it all is that the
clubs furnish a diversion for the students and at the same time, far from
interfering with the studies, actually help the students to get better
The clubs are always the life of a school and we may well give a rous-
ing cheer to the students and teachers who were peppy enough to begin
and back the clubs, giving us so many good times last year.

EALIZING the need of a club that would boost Freeport High School,
its organizations and its activities in every way possible, twenty boys
met last September and organized the Booster Club of Freeport High
School. Membership in the club was limited to the unanimous vote of all
the members. The oflicers elected for the first semester were Bob Yde,
Presidentg Ted Kenegy, Vice President, Fred Montiegel, Secretary and
Treasurer. Mr. Davies and Mr. Holmes acted in the capacity of advisors.
Immediately the members entered into the spirit of the club, and sold
over seventy football season-tickets: promoted assemblies, pep meetings,
and parades. The most notable pep assembly ever attempted in Freeport
High .School by any organization was put on by the Booster Club when
they buried Elgin at a real pep assembly. For weeks afterwards it was
the talk of the school-its fame even reaching throughout the conference.
Then aelull fell over the club's activities, but out of a clear sky a big
storm broke. The club planned a Football Banquet-not only a banquet,
but a party that would closely rival the annual Junior-Senior Banquet.
This was a huge proposition for a club of twenty-eight boys to undertake-
such was the opinion of many members of the faculty. Each member did
his share, and the Boosters went over the top with flying colors. The total
expenditures for the party amounted to over two-hundred-fifty dollars! The
club raised the money in the following ways: A tag day was held at High
School just before the Rockford game. A few days later the club pre-
sented "The Pot Boilers", a one act farce, in the assembly, and later at
the Lindo Theatre. Last but not least the club tagged the business men,
and towns people, and in these ways cleared enough money for a party
that not only rivaled but, in the opinion of many, surpassed any Junior-
Senior Banquet ever given. I
At the close of the first semester Mr. Davies left school, and his suc-
cessor, Mr. Trever, immediately took active charge of the club, as advisor.
The club then backed athletics during the basketball season, and was
instrumental in organizing the H. H. H. Club, a group of boys who pledged
themselves to attend basketball games in a body g thus tending to
strengthen the cheering at the games.
New officers were elected at the first meeting in the second semester,
Jack Wilson being honored with the office of President, Art Voigt, Vice
Presidentg and Fred Nieman, Secretary and Treasurer.
The Club was foremost in backing the Senior Play, Waukegan Debate,
Junior Play, and all other activities of the school. As this book goes to
press, the club is planning another dance for the benefit of the track ath-
letes, and no doubt will go through with theirplans. All in all the club is
one of the finest, liveliest, and most up to date organizations in school. It
is sincerely hoped by the graduating members that the good work will be
carried on next year.

N October, the Girl's Pep Club held its first regular- meeting and the fol-
lowing officers were elected: President, Betty Brokhausen, Vice Pres-

Miss Gile was chosen as faculty advisor. The purpose of the club was
to create and to maintain school spirit. The girls were present at all the
football games cheering for Freeport.
In the spring the club was reorganized. New officers were elected and
the club immediately began to show its loyalty and school spirit. A prize
was offered to the lightweight and one to the heavyweight player who
played the best all-around, game in our annual tussle with Rockford. An
impartial committee, of men, not connected with the school, was chosen to
select the winners. They decided that Francis Heinen and William Stewart
had best merited the rewards. So, in the assembly, Betty Brokhausen pre-
sented each of these boys with a silver belt buckle. Mr. J. F. Manion gave
a talk and we sang school songs, and gave some of our favorite yells,
making it a real pep assembly.
At the basket ball games, Mr. Cross arranged the seating so that the
Pep Club could sit in a body. The girls showed more pep and clearly out-
yelled the boys' H. H. H. organization. Everyone, except the boys, will
To further demonstrate the fact that we appreciated the work of the
boys who defended the school by playing basket ball, the girls sold sand-
wiches several nights after school. With the money made on these sand-
wich sales, and also with money realized on a matinee dance given just
after Easter we gave a banquet at the Sigma Tau Club Rooms for basket
ball players and their girls. This banquet came as a climax to a very
successful and peppy year.

Senior Hi-Y . .
HE Senior Hi-Y opened the new school year with a banquet on
October seventeenth. The purpose of the Hi-Y Club is "To Create,
Maintain and Extend throughout School and Community the high
standards of Christian Character."
All Juniors and Seniors are eligible to membership in the Senior Hi-Y.
Membership in the Y. M. C. A. is not required for Hi-Y membership.
All that is required is attendance at the meetings, at which supper is
served at a nominal cost.
The meetings started off well, the attendance being large and the pro-
grams very good, thanks to the work of the program committee under
"Bud" Freidag. The programs were varied in character, there being
music, stunts, and instructive talks.
During Thanksgiving vacation about twenty members of the Senior
and Junior clubs, including the ofiicers of the former, went to the Annual
Older Boys' Conference of Illinois which was held at Galesburg this year.
These fellows returned full of enthusiasm and new ideas which they had
received from excellent speakers at the conference.
During the winter a sleighing party was sponsored by the club as a
part of its social program.
On the evening of February second, a carnival was held at the Y. M.
C. A. by the combined Hi-Y and Orange and Black clubs. Many new and
novel stunts were put on as well as the Popularity and Beauty Contest,
The Hi-Y club in conjunction with the Depega club, which is made
up of .fellows who went to the state conferences at Decatur, Peoria, and
Galesburg the last three years, put on the second annual Tri-County Older
Boys' Conference at Freeport on February fifteenth and sixteenth. This
conference took in fellows from Stephenson, Jo Daviess and Carroll
An induction team was formed of Hi-Y fellows for the conference
and they put on the regular Hi-Y induction service at one of the sessions.
The team has been putting on the induction service at the Hi-Y meetings
about every two weeks since that time. The two important events of the
latter part of the year were a picnic with the Orange and Black club
girls and a closing banquet of the Hi-Y club.
The picnic with the Orange and Black club is an annual event and is
looked forward to by every Hi-Y fellow. Baseball and other games were
played and then everyone partook of the eats-the most important part.
The officers for the next year have charge of the meeting at the
closing banquet, thus permitting the retiring officers one meeting before
graduation at which they have no responsibilities or duties.

had one of the largest memberships of any club in school.
At the first meeting of the year, Eleanor Richter reported on the

The club took charge of the High School Thanksgiving ofering and
made many of the less fortunate people of our city happy by seeing that
the collection taken up at school was given to the Civic Center, who dis-
tributed baskets to the people. 1
The girls followed out the old custom of singing carols at daybreak on
Christmas morning. We went to the Old Peoples Home, County Farm, the
County Jail, Fire Station No. 1, The General, Globe, and St. Francis Hos-
pitals, and in that way spread good cheer throughout the city.
After hearing a talk by Miss Bidwell, the club sent a letter, signed by
each member, to Congressman McKenzie, asking his support of the amend-
ment prohibiting Child Labor.
The Club took a part in the Hi-Gob Carnival and out of their share of
the profits, donated twelve and one half dollars to the Y. W. C. A. budget
in appreciation of the fact that we use their building for so many things.
Money was raised for the Mother's and Daughter's Banquet by selling
subscriptions to "The Woman Citizen", a monthly magazine of great value
to women who wish to keep informed on political matters.
At each meeting the girls heard an instructive talk on subjects which
interested them very much. At one meeting Miss Holmes spoke on "Cit-
izenship". At another meeting Miss Bertha Bidwell gave a talk on
"Child Labor." At the March meeting Mrs. Furst spoke on "Redecorating
the School girls' room", and in April Miss Regina Feeny talked on "Spring
The Mother's and Daughter's Banquet was a fitting close to the activ-
ities of the year. It was decided to admit any girl in school, giving the
members of the club preference if the number signing up became too large.
The decorations were very appropriate and attractive. Both girls and
mothers enjoyed themselves to the utmost and many said that they hoped
the Banquet would become an annual affair.

N October, 1923 a small group of Freshmen and Sophomore boys met at
the Y. M. C. A. and outlined plans for the organization of the Junior
Hi-Y for the year 1923-24. At this meeting a nominating committee was
chosen and instructed relative to the importance of nominating the proper
officers for the coming year. Two weeks later election took place. David
McNary was elected President, William Moore, Vice President, Lawrence
Confer, Secretary, Ozro Hill, Treasurer.
The purpose of the Hi-Y is "To Create, Maintain, and Extend through-
out the School and Community, high standards of Christian Character",
and the platform is "To bring out the four fold life of the individual i e.,
clean habit, clean speech, clean scholarship, and clean athletics.
The club met regularly during .the year, usually on Tuesday night.
The program consists of Cafeteria supper, reading of minutes, roll call,
committee reports, old and new business transactions, music and singing,
talks by members of the club, and an adult speaker.
Many events of social and educational nature were held during the
year. The Junior Hi-Y cooperated with the Senior club in putting on the
Older Boy's Conference, sponsored a Mother's night program and banquet,
held a combined meeting with the Rockford Hi-Y club, enjoyed a sleighing
party, helped with the Hi-Gob Carnival, and helped make possible a series
of successful Sex Educational talks.
The Junior Hi-Y has co-operated with all the other agencies in boost-
ing athletics, and creating the right school spirit. Many boys have been
helped materially because of the work of the Hi-Y, and the work of the
club has undoubtedly been an influence for good in the community.
An eiort was made in the fall and again after spring vacation to en-
list as many Freshmen as possible as members because we realize that the
success of next year's Junior Hi-Y will depend entirely upon this group.
Giving the Freshmen a chance for expression has been the policy during
the last few meetings.

NDER the supervision of its advisors, Miss Cravens and Miss Gile,
and of its officers, Ruby Machamer, President, Jane Borgmier, Vice
President, Virginia Taylor, Secretary, and Lois Holland, Treasurer,
the Junior Orange and Black Club has completed a very successful year
filled to the brim with activities.
Beginning last September, interesting meetings were held once each
month until the close of school in June. The first month the girls hiked
to Krape's Park and held their meeting about a campfire, with the usual
accompaniments of hot dogs and ghost stories. At the October meetings
Miss Davidson spoke about the Passion Play, of Oberammergau, and later
in the month the girls gave a Hallowe'en Masquerade party. November
and December were devoted to charity, as the members filled several bas-
kets for the poor on Thanksgiving, and on Christmas donated toys and
stockings stuied full of goodies for the poor children. At the beginning
of the new semester in January, a party was held to welcome the Fresh-
man B Girls into the club, and Mrs. C. A. Hoefer also gave a discussion on
the vital subject of Father Time. In February, a Patriotic meeting was
held, at which the girls discussed their flag and their country. St. Pat-
rick's Day was the occasion for a party at which the girls themselves pre-
pared a banquet dinner which was served in the gaily decorated dining
hall. Favors were awarded to each member and after the banquet they
played games and danced in the gymnasium. At a get-to-gether meeting
in April the girls played games on the big lawn at the Y after the business
matters had been settled. In May the Senior and Junior Orange and Black
girls gave a joint Mother's and Daughter's Banquet at the Y. W. C. A.
This affair proved to be a brilliant success. The last meeting, in June, was
held out doors Where the girls played games after the business had been
The Club undertook several, very difficult enterprises in the quest of
raising money, and in the end came out with great financial success. At
the annual Hi-Gob Carnival the girls put on several clever dancing stunts
and received some of the proceeds from the carnival, but the biggest at-
tempt to raise money, however, was in sponsoring a matinee at the Lindo
Theater. The girls Worked very hard and sold over a thousand tickets
for this matinee, f'The Barefoot Boy".
Throughout their many and varied activities the club girls have dis-
played spirit and co-operation of which any school organizaton should be
proud, and have earned the name of a peppy, well organized club.

The Latin Club
HE Latin club was organized in the year 1921 for the purpose of en-
couraging the study of Latin. The club continued successfully in
1923, and this year the club has proved to be a really live organiza-
tion, living up to its original purpose.
This year the club has been under the inspiring leadership of Miss
Moody, head of the Latin Department. Miss Moody was aided by the
officers elected at the first meeting, who were as follows: President, Marvin
Burt, Vice President, Esther Hall, and Secretary and Treasurer, Mary
The club was started on the year's journey early in September, when
a business meeting was called and oflicers elected.
The club was active in sponsoring social functions this year, as the
second meeting was a party. Games were played and it was a very enjoy-
The matinee dance given by the Latin and French clubs together Was
a great success.
At the Christmas meeting the club gave a party which was an imita-
tion of the Way Cicero would spend Christmas. Presents were given to
everyone and from a Christmas tree radiated the real spirit of Christmas.
The May meeting was celebrated by a picnic at Krape's Park. All of
these social events show that everyone attending the meetings did not fail
to have a good time. '
Then of course the real purpose of the club was not neglected, and a
debate was held at the December meeting: "Resolved: That Cicero was
right in putting the Cataline conspirators to death." The negatives
consisted of Virginia Smith and Richard Credicott, and the afhrmatives
consisted of David Burrell and Mary Carnahan. The affirmative team Won.
At another meeting a very interesting talk on Roman slavery Was
given by Miss Guiteau. ' A
Several times during the year interesting slides were shown, pertaining
to the study of Latin. One set was given at a meeting and explained by
Richard Credicottg another was shown in the Latin Club assembly.
It has been the custom for the various departments to put on assem-
blies to further the interest in the study. The Latin club not wishing to
be left behind gave a very interesting assembly. Virginia Smith and Mr.
Burrell gave very interesting talks, after which Marvin Burt explained
some slides. P
The Latin club sold "hot dogs" at the annual basket ball tournament
and made enough money in this enterprise to pay for their pages in the
Miss Moody has been a very competent faculty advisor for the club,
which is shown by the fact that the club has a very large membership this
year, and also by the pep and enthusiasm with which the members have
responded when asked to take part in any of the club's activities.
All in all this year has been a very successful one and We hope that
next year the club will continue its prosperous course. We think that the
club has lived up to its purpose of furthering the study of Latin and also
that the social side has not been neglected and all the members have en-
joyed the year.

Le Cercle Francois
N September a small group of French students met in Miss Constantine's
room and formed Le Cercle Francois. The purpose of Le Cercle is to
show the distinctly social side of French. By having meetings outside
of class time We had time to give French plays, and to study topics we
would not have time for in class. The requisite for membership is that
the student must have successfully finished one semester of French.
At first We had two social meetings a month, but later this was
changed to one luncheon at noon and one business meeting fifth hour. The
luncheon at noon proved very successful because more members found it
possible to be present. Miss N ormile served excellent lunches, and every-
one, including Bill Ridgway, had enough to eat.
At diferent meetings three one-act plays were given in French, Which
were very Well acted and very enjoyable.
At one meeting Charles Furst gave an illustrated talk on his trip
through France, Which of course, interested us very much.
At another meeting Miss Davidson talked on "Oberammergau and the
French." She told us many things about the people of this province, their
customs and dress. She also told us about the people of Paris, their meals,
which are quite different from ours, and a great many other interesting
thingsg so, you see, at every meeting We learned something about France
or the French language.
In February the beginning French class was admitted to Le Cercle and
swelled the number of members considerably.
At the last meeting our outdoor picnic was held. Everyone was sorry
that the year had ended because We had had such a good time during the

The Spanish Club
HE Spanish Club or El Circulo Castellano Was organized last fall by
the advanced Spanish class. Its membership is limited to students
who have successfully finished one semester of Spanish. g
The purpose of the club is threefold: to create further interest in
Spanish, to converse in Spanish at the meetings, and to further a friendly
feeling among the members of the club by introducing the social element.
The advanced students in Spanish were hosts to the beginning class
at a luncheon a short time after the club was organized. A very interest-
ing program had been prepared, part of which Was the Spanish Play-El
creado Astuto. The cast consisted of Goldye Timms, Churchill Bangs and
Fred Montiegel. Later in the year, this play Was given before the
The success of El Circulo Castellano Was largely due to the co-opera-
tion of the members with the president, Richard Credicott, and with the
faculty advisor, Miss Constantine. The oflicers of the club were elected
early in the year and were as follows: Richard Credicott, President 3 David
McNary, Vice President, Eileen Cahill, Secretary and Treasurer.

to pay the expenses of the pages in the Polaris.

I Honor Society . . .
WO years ago there was organized in this school the Freeport Chapter
of the National Honor Society. This society, conforming to the re-
quirements in the constitution of the National Honor Society, was or-
ganized to "create an enthusiasm for scholarship, to stimulate a desire to
render service, to promote leadership, and to develop character in stu-
dents of the American Secondary Schools."
Members of the society are elected by a faculty committee consisting
of Mr. Fulwider and four other members of the faculty.
To become a member one must stand out among the students for four
essential qualities: that is, election to membership is based on one's
scholarship, leadership, character, and service. To meet the scholarship
requirement a student's average for all four years must be in the first
quarter of the class. To qualify for leadership and service the student
must be a leader in school activities. A person cannot become a member
by his high scholarship alone, but must also meet the three other require-
ments. Membership includes active students and graduates, the graduates
having no vote at meetings of the society. If an active member falls be-
low the standards of entrance, he may be dropped from membership until
he shall redeem himself by again meeting the requirements.
Although this society is yet comparatively new, a great deal of inter-
est is manifest and eagerness to become a member is being shown by the
students. The idea of an all-round education is becoming more fully
The Society sponsored an assembly at which Mr. Maurer, President of
Beloit College, gave a very interesting talk. Mr. Mensenkamp, Treasurer,
presented the club pins.
The following Seniors are members of the society: President, Marvin
Burt, Vice President, Jack Wilson, Secretary, William Thomas, Treasurer,
Prof. L. E. Mensenkamp, Howard Bennethum, Richard Credicott, Viola
Fry, Isadora Haight, Nonie Kuehner, Mary Ellen Manion, William
Steffen, Churchill Bangs, and Charles Richards. The Seniors who were
elected to membership during their Junior years are: Ruth Andre, Milton
Babcock, Esther Buterbaugh, Francis Heinen, Jack Wilson. The Juniors
elected this year are: Eileen Cahill, Elizabeth Johnston, Eleanor Richter,
Foy Matter, David Burrell, Vernon Fry.

Cramberries Club History
HE Girls' honorary Literary Society, the Cramberries Club, has been an import-
ant factor this year in the social and educational life of the Senior girls. The
purpose of the Cramberries Club is to develop an appreciation of literature, to
stimulate literary endeavors, and to foster a spirit of friendliness among the girls
of the Senior Class. Another purpose, not listed in the constitution, but nevertheless
firmly fixed in the minds of the members is to establish this society as a permanent
institution in the school life of F. H. S. To bring this about, they have presented an
Honor Scroll, on which is inscribed the name of the girl who has during the year done
most to enable the society to realize its goal. This girl is chosen by a new method, in
which club achievement is rewarded by points. Each year the name of the girl re-
ceiving the highest number of points will be inscribed on the Honor Scroll. Thus an
inspiration is given to the girls to participate in the work of the club. Certain activi-
ties which will become school traditions have been established.
The club was organized early in September, and Miss Hancock was unanimously
chosen by the girls as advisor. The first meeting, in the form of a hallowe'en party,
started off with a bang. This spooky meeting, with Uliterary shades" as guests, was
made colorful by readings from Poe, Irving, and Hawthorne, and lighted pumpkins.
Such was the fitting and delightful introduction to the work of the year!
But to have a truly successful club, it must be strong financially. Therefore, the
girls sold hot-dog sandwiches at the Joliet game with such success that the society
was practically financed for the remainder of the year. Even Charlie Cross admitted
We were good salesmen.
The Thanksgiving meeting was given over to the study of Longfellow. The month
of November was also noted for the Book Drive, to which the girls of the Cramberries,
realizing that successful literary pursuits demand a good library, donated approxi-
mately 200 books.
The month of Christmas is a fair page in this History. The regular meeting was
a red letter day, with the program including two plays, one of which was also given
before the assembly. The faculty members were guests of the club.
Then there was that Christmas party at the County Farm! Eight carloads of Cram-
berries went out to act as hostesses and to present a program, and fruit was taken to
the people of the Farm. This philanthropic activity was of inestimable value to the
club, insured a happy Christmas to the unfortunate, and established a worthy pre-
cedent for other years to come.
The long dreary days of January were made bright by the Whittier meeting and
the dramatization of Maud Muller.
And now we come to February! Who will ever forget that wonderful St. Valen-
tineis Party? Here our society proved that its successes in literary study, financial
endeavors, book drives, and philanthropic enterprises could find a peer in its social con-
tributions to the school. The Cramberries and the boys who were their guests passed
a delightful evening of dancing, games, and novelties from the choosing of the King
and Queen of Hearts to the Valentine refreshments to be had.
The St. Patrick's tea, an annual affair, was the occasion for inviting Junior girls
eligible to the club membership, and for studying particularly the literature to which
Freeport, has contributed. c
With the coming of spring's happy dreams the thoughts of the Cramberries turned
to the American drama for inspiration and "The Maker of Dreams," was dramatized.
The crowning glory of this year for the Cramberries Club was the May Breakfast
held one bright morning at the Y. W. C. A. Here the installation ceremony was held,
the Honor Scroll was awarded: the business of the year was finished, the girls of '24
gave the work of Cramberries-with all its privileges and responsibilities-over to the

HE Radio Club was organized early in the year for the purpose of
promoting interest in the new science and to make possible a study
of the latest developments and theories of radio. The club is com-
posed of all High School students and alumni who are interested in radio
and who own receiving sets. .
Mr. Lottes, instructor of physics, was the faculty advisor and under
his direction the club had a very successful season. At an early meeting
the members of the club elected as officers: Howard Bennethum, President,
George Keck, Vice President, and Charles Furst, Secretary and Treasurer.
At the same meeting the constitution was drawn up and adopted.
The club meetings held every other Thursday in the physics labora-
tory of the high school were conducted in a very satisfactory manner.
At each meeting a member of the club presented a previously assigned
phase of the subject. During the season the club studied simple and com-
plicated circuits, condensors, detectors and amplifiers.
William Ridgway explained the ultra-audion circuit which is probably
one of the most important of the simple hook-ups, at the second meeting
of the year. Winston Meyers, discussed the complex super-hetrodyne
circuit. Later, Waldemar Bury gave a very interesting talk on the con-
struction and operation of vacuum tubes. Joe Shelly demonstrated and
explained his nutrodyne set and entertained the members with a radio
With the present body of members as a nucleus, the club intends
greatly to enlarge the membership and to sponsor an even more extensive
program next year than that of the past season has been. Ever since the
origin of the club, about five years ago, it has become decidedly larger and
more important and the interest toward the discussions and studies has

The High School Paper
UE to the initiative of three boys in this year's Senior Class, Free-
port High School again has a school newspaper, after a lapse of sev-
eral years, during which time printing was suspended, due to its
high cost. These three boys, Howard Bennethum, Marvin Burt, and
William Steffen completed plans for organizing the present paper, "THE
POLARIS", early in September, after having first secured bids from sev-
eral printers and a substantial amount of advertising from the business
men of the city to finance the proposed project. Their plans were sub-
mitted to, and approved by Mr. Fulwider, who gave his support to the
enterprise. He organized the staff as it appears below, and helped to start
the new publication on its way to success.
Three faculty members, Miss Bryant, Miss Cravens, and Mr. Davies
were appointed to supervise publications. They were experienced news
writers and were greatly responsible for the high journalistic standards
which have been maintained by the Weekly Polaris throughout the year.
The Polaris endeavored to be representative of the entire school by
recording the activities of the clubs and classes, advertising coming events,
and keeping the school acquainted with the activities of the neighboring
One of the most exciting events in the paper's short history was the
publication of the "Football Special", a real newspaper extra, celebrating
the great victory over Rockford on the gridiron. This special was issued
on the Monday after the game, thus requiring hard work on the part of
the Athletic department, the editorial staff, and the printers, the H. J.
The Polaris has been sent to several leading colleges and universities
for criticism and has been ranked among the best of the high school papers
in the state for journalistic excellence.

Visual Education Committee
MONG the programs given at high school during the last year, the
motion pictures were no doubt the most interesting. The motion
picture machine is a valuable asset to the school both from the stand-
point of education and entertainment.
The programs for this year have been exceptionally interesting.
"Making of Glass", "The Use of Water", "The Working of an Electric
Meter" were a few of the excellent educational pictures shown. "Round
The World With The Speejacksf' presented in serial form aroused a great
deal of interest among the student body. Several news and sport reels
were also shown on various occasions.
Much credit for the splendid pictures shown this year is due to the
untiring eiorts of Mr. Lottes and the Visual Education Committee. Mr.
Lottes has worked unceasingly throughout the year to secure good pic-
tures for the High School. The committee composed of George Keck,
chairman, Twyla Keister, secretary, and David McNary, did their best to
secure pictures which would be both educational and interesting. The
mechanical end of the work was attended to by Klein Bardell, I. A. T. S. E.
No. 207, and William Ridgway, and they are to be complimented on the
excellent way in which the pictures were shown. These students are to
be commended on their work and enthusiasm in promoting visual educa-
tion in Freeport High School. '
Not only were the pictures shown at High School, but the operators
took the machine and pictures and visited the grade schools of Freeport.
The machine was also used in several of the smaller nearby towns.
Collections were taken at each entertainment to defray the expenses
and the amounts of the collections showed that the students were enjoy-
ing the pictures very much.
Freeport High School students should appreciate the fact that they
are attending a school where they can receive the benefits derived from
educational motion pictures.

As usual this year we put on a drive for books. It lasted one week
and the whole school participated. Each class was eager to bring in the
most books and competition was keen. The Freshmen won by a margin
of almost 500 books more than any other class. The drive brought into
the library over 1,500 books this year, more books than have ever before
been turned in at any one time. Among the books were many histories,
collections of poems, biographies, books on the outside reading list, and
books of general educational value. The following complete sets just re-
ceived will prove of service in the work of the library:

June 13, 1924. Dear Diary:
What a year this has been! There have been more parties and activi-
ties this year than ever before. Each club, and there were a great many of
them, gave innumerable parties and dances. And those other parties
which included most of the school-we had such a good time that I want
to remember them in the order in which they came.
The first was the Senior Reception at which the Seniors welcomed
the Freshmen to F. H. S. There was an atmosphere of gaiety which made
the Freshmen feel quite at home in their new surroundings. There was a
program in the assembly, and then dancing and games and eats. Both
Freshmen and Seniors joined in the merry making and there was not one
who was not sorry when the time came to go home.
Next came the Football Banquet. tThe Juniors certainly had a hard
time making their banquet better. The members of the Booster Club
worked untiringly to raise money for the banquet and they may well be
proud of the result. The favors were miniature footballs with candy in
them and orange and black ribbons on them. After the banquet there
were interesting toasts and speeches, and then Jack Kauffman presented
to the holders of the lucky numbers, valuable prizes. This was followed
by several hours dancing in the ballroom. The students and teachers who
attended this banquet will remember it forever.
The Juniors may well be proud of their Junior party-The side shows,
the vaudeville, the eats, the dancing, and many other attractions made one
evening too short to crowd in the fun.
This year the following committee, Richard Credicott, Marvin Burt,
Howard Bennethum, Karl Jaeger ,and Miss Stewart, Chief Chaperone, as
a financial aid to the Weekly Polaris, sponsored a series of Mixer Dances.
Two orchestras containing the best talent in school were organized. The
personnel of the Snappy Syncopators was as follows: Miss Van Kessel,
piano, Karl Jaeger, sax, Foy Robert Matter, violin, and Robert Fisher,
cornet. The Foxtrot Four was composed of Lorena Balles, piano, Gerald
Whitford, sax, Devore Hitchner, cornet, and Paul Johnson, violin. Fifteen
cents admission was charged and the dances were a huge success, both
from the financial and social standpoints.
The Freshmen, decided to have a little fun among themselves, since
their older brothers and sisters Were having so many parties. So they
had a party. The committees were-Entertainment, Ruth Wilson, Chair-
man, Dorothy Blackmore, John Manion, Joe Shelley, and Alice Jephson,
Eats, Thelma Byrem, Chairman, Beatrice Dawson, Dale Fair, Victor
Lamm, and Hilda Hirshbrunner. These committees speak for themselves.
and I know you will believe me, Diary, when I say that these Freshmen are
going to make a wonderful success of their four years in old F. H. S.
The Pep Club gave a basketball banquet late in April and the boys
who were fortunate enough to be eligible for this banquet were the envy
of the school.
Then came the crowning social event of the year-the Junior Senior
Banquet. The toasts were very impressive and the farewell song made
the Seniors a little sad, of course, but afterwards, all sadness was for-
gotten in the evening of dancing and fun which followed.
Oh, Diary, I'm so glad I've written this in here, because I never want
to forget a single party of my last wonderful year at F. H. S.

There is no effort of the human mind which
demands a rarer combination of faculties than
does oratory in its loftiest flights, so there is no
human effort which is rewarded with more im-
mediate or dazzling triumphs. The orator is not
compelled to wait through long and weary years
to reap the reward of his labor. His triumphs
are instantaneous, they follow his eEorts as
the thunder peal follows the lightning flash.
While he is in the very act of forming his sen-
tences, his triumph is reflected from the coun- P
tenances of his hearers and is sounded from their Coach: Karl Trevel.
lips. To stand up before a vast assembly com-
posed of men of the most various calling, views, passions, and prejudices,
and mould them at will, is perhaps the greatest triumph of which the hu-
man mind is capable.
Oratory is fed by the vices and misfortunes of society. Long periods
of peace and prosperity, which quicken the growth of other arts, are in
some respects fatal to it. Its element is the whirlwind and the storm, and
when society is upheaved to its foundations, when the moral and political
darkness is thickest, it shines forth with the greatest splendor. As
Tacitus has observed, "peace, no doubt, is preferable to warg but it is the
latter only that forms the soldier." It is just the same with eloquence,
the oftener she enters the field of battle, the more wounds she gives and
receives, the more powerful the adversary with which she contends 3-so
much the more enobled she appears in the eye of mankind
More than all others, "character" is an important factor in modern
eloquence. It is his virtues, his stability, his known zeal for the right and
the true, that, quite as much as the magnetism of his looks, his siren voice,
his graces of address, and electric periods, must win for the orator, atten-
tion and confidence now. It is the man behind the words that must give
them momentum and projectile force. The .impression which every
speaker makes on his fellows, is the moral resultant, not only of what he
says, but of all that he has grown up to beg of his manhood, weak or strong.
sterling or counterfeit. If his youth and manhood have been spent in
truth-seeking, his influence will be greater over his listeners.
To Truth's house there is a single door,
Which is Experience. He teaches best,
Who feels the hearts of all men in his breast,
And knows their strength or weakness through his own.
It is in this section of our book that we gladly record the accomplish--
ments of a most successful year of oratory and debate.

Oratory and Debate
EBATE is no longer a stranger in Freeport High School. Since its
rebirth last year, it has gained prominence and favor as an extra
curricula activity that develops the mental powers together with
the vocal organs.
Two debate teams were organized under the instruction of Mr. Trever,
who, himself, is an orator and debater of exceptional ability. The negative
team consisted of William Steffen, Howard Bennethum, and Marvin Burt,
these debaters had had experience from the previous year. The affirm-
ative team consisted of Vernon Fry, Wilbur Garman, and Karl Fuss, all of
whom were forceful speakers.
The team entered the Illinois High School Debating League, which
was composed of the largest and strongest schools in the state. This
league operated on the elimination basis-the winning team continuing to
debate until the final round for state championship, which was to be held
at Champaign. The question debated by the teams in the league was,
'iResolved, that immigration into the United States should be prohibited
for a period of three years." S
Both teams labored diligently for nearly two months in preparation
for their first debate, which was scheduled with Galena for March 10.
Galena, however, forfeited both debates to Freeport-thus we scored our
first victory in the Debating League.
Our next debate, on April 11, was a triangular argument between
Elmhurst, Waukegan, and Freeport-the negative team traveling. Both
Freeport teams were eliminated by a 2 to 1 margin-Elmhurst defeating
our negative and Waukegan, the affirmative. Our affirmative team had
well iplanned constructive argumentsg but the Waukegan boys were more
experienced and, therefore, better in delivery. '
Much credit is due to the six boys and their coach for the efforts they
put forth in trying to uphold the honor of Freeport High School in debate.

picted the characters of typical Germans in their speech and actions.
They were truly artists in their parts. Esther Buterloaugh took her part
of a faithful German wife with a realism that marked her as one of the
stars in the history of high school dramatics. Roberta Emrich and
Charles Richards were a good pair of lovers and Charles' song of America
produced a fine dramatic ending. Jack Kauffman as the "villain" did a
strong piece of acting. Dorothy Ogden had a minor part but portrayed it
in a real stage manner. Clyde Kaiser as the newsboy, Maxwell Taylor,
Melvin Mitchell, as secret service men only appeared for a moment, but
convinced the audience of their good stage appearance. The play was a
Wonderful success and much credit goes to Miss Clara Ryan, the director.
The third footlight flash opened on the first act of "Green Stockings"
on the night of May, 8. Eileen Cahill, as Celia Faraday, an old maid of an
English family, took her part in a truly convincing manner. She was quite
a lovable minx. Her sisters Margaret Fleischer, Virginia Smith, and
Gladys Stieneke, acted like sisters in real life. James Richards as Colonel
Smith was a truly remarkable presentation. Vernon Fry was a good
father to his four daughters. James Pollock, Charles Young, Russell Law-
son, David Burrell were splendid young men and finished actors. Betty
Kuntz and Waldemar Bury were exceptionally pleasing in their comedy
parts. The Juniors should be proud of their fine production.

HE footlights of 1923 flashed. for the last time upon the Hnale of
"Kathleen," John Baker, as Michael Flynn, was the wealthiest citizen
of Flynnville. He had planned that his ward Kathleen, played by
Nonie Kuehner, should marry Ned Rollingstone, Jack Kauffman, the son
of a wealthy oil speculator. Michael's God is the almighty dollar and he
does not concern himself with the God of Love. Kathleen has already
given her affections to Jimmie Stanton, played by Charles Richards, poor
in worldly possessions but rich in love. Upon Ned's return from college
Lady Fate steps in and causes more excitement than does the checker
contest staged by Lem Underduck and Teckley Bramble in front of Hans
Swindler's general store. It was even more exciting than when Arabella
Wilkins distributes the mail. These humorous characters were portrayed
by Karl Jaeger,' Roger Wheeland, Russell Borchers and Elizabeth John-
ston. Lady Fate brings along a friend known as temptation to foil the
plans of Michael. Temptation whispers in Ned's ear of the sum of money
in Hans' open safe. Hans discovers his loss. Lem is put upon the thief's
trail. Arabella has a distrust of Lem's powers of deteckatin' and sets
about to catch the thief. Michael forces Kathleen to consent to an en-
gagement with Ned and he announces a party for them. Jimmie is accused
of being the thief, but Fate showed her head. At the engagement party
Arabella discloses the name ofthe real thief g however Ned escapes. Flossie
Neverset, played by Elizabeth Anderson, the town vamp, discovers the
fickleness of men and swears off. Jimmie is restored to Kathleen, Arabella
and Lem are united, and life in the village flows smoothly ownward. The
operetta proved to be the most enjoyable and best acted of the many which
have been presented.

Marie Pfeiffer, her son William, his fiancee, June Block and her father,
Henry Block, have upon their shoulders the very hard task of brushing
aside Karl Pfeiffer's rosy dreams of the greatness of his beloved Father-
land, Germany. The World War had begun and William had joined the
American forces. Karl does not know he is a soldier. Henry Block and
Karl have many quarrels over the war and Henry tries to tell Karl of the
enlistment of his only son. Marie and June have already failed in the task.
Karl and Henry engage in a quarrel, but Karl remains ignorant of Henry's
secret. William's regiment is soon to sail, and the unwelcome news is told
by him to Karl. In the meantime, Karl has given fifty thousand dollars to
the German Spy, Walter Stewart. William and June are married before
the ship sails. Karl will have nothing to do with his family or friends be-
cause they deceived him. Walter Stewart uses part of Karl's money for
bombs to sink the ship which carries William. The news of the sinking
of a transport is brought to Karl's notice. At last he realizes the false po-
sition in which his Fatherland had placed him. Henry and Karl trap the
spy, and two secret service men take him away. William was saved and
comes back to ga happy reunion with his now thoroughly loyal father.
"Green Stockingsn, the Junior Class Play, was given at the Germania

'There is a tradition in England that the unmarried sister of a family should wear
green stockings at the wedding of her sisters. Celia Faraday is one of those sisters of
a family of four who has not married. Her two sisters Madge and Evelyn have been
married and she had to wear green stockings. Phyllis the youngest is engaged and the
family are pitying Celia. Celia has been away at a week-end party and comes home to
tell of her engagement to a ficticious Colonel Smith. The family are elated. She writes
a love letter and it is sent to a Colonel Smith in Africa. Upon receiving it he goes to
England and surprises Celia and her family. He poses as a friend of Colonel Smith
whom Celia had to marry in order to get out of her predicament. She has taken her
aunt, Mrs. Faraday, into her confidence. The whole farce turns out well and Celia an-
nounces she is going to America with her aunt. Colonel Smith has fallen in love with
her and tells her so just before she leaves.

, "Cendrillon," an adaptation of Cinderella, was put on by the advanced
members of Miss Constantine's French classes on February 5, 1924. It
was a clever presentation of that well known fairy myth. Miss Betty
Brokhausen was a delightful Cinderella and her two sisters, Dorothy
Ogden and Virginia Smith, carried off their hateful parts in a convincing
manner. The good fairy, Mary Ellen Manion, with the aid of an Airedale
dog, managed her transformation of Cinderella, the mice, and the pumpkin
with considerable ease. Then Cinderella went to the ball. There, of course,
she met her handsome prince,David Burrell. All wouuld have gone well but
she forgot the fairy's warning and lost a slipper. The prince's page,Charles
Furst, locates her and puts the slipper on. Then followed a happy French
On March 4, 1924, the beginners in French produced "Pan Pan," a
novel shopping expedition. The part of the merchant was ably portrayed
by Devore Hitchner. The buyer, John Schwartz, and his sister, Lucille
Pack, wanted to purchase on animal. It was an amusing farce and did
credit to the beginning classes.
"The Pot Boilers" was a thirty minute sketch given for the purpose of
raising funds for the football banquet. It was directed by John Davies
of the public speaking classes. Those who took part were Sud, a success-
ful playwright, Fred Montiegel, Woodbe, an amateur playwright, Jay Pol-
lock, Miss Ivory, the heroine, Esther Buterbaugh, Mrs. Pencil, the vam-
pire, Roberta Emrich, Mr. Inkwell, the villian, John Baker, Mr. Ruler, the
hero, Jack Wilson, and Mr. Ivory, a financier, Francis Heinen. It was
given before the assembly and at the Lindo Theatre.
"In Magna Urbe", Cln a Great Cityj, was given by Miss Moody's
Caesar class. A nobleman's children were going to visit their father in
Rome. Along' the way they have a few adventures, see their emperor, and
visit their father. The cast consisted of Devore Hitchner and Elizabeth
Johnston, the children, Leslie Evans, their father, David McNary, the
emperor, John Graham, John Bentley, William Madden and Tom Redican,
boys playing along the road. It was a very well acted play and the actors
are to be commended upon their excellent command of Latin.
"Ira Nympharum", CWrath of the Nymphsb was given by the Caesar
Class after school in the assembly. A young Greek Athlete wants to prac-
tice in a wood inhabited by nymphs. His sister and her friends try to
persuade him not to on account of incurring the nymphs' wrath. He
doesn't heed them and the nymphs appear. Edwin Hall is the Athlete.
Rebecca Hoy, his sister, Dorothy Frank, her friend, Katherine Babcock,
Anna Sweeney and Elinor Engle were the nymphs. It was a splendid por-
trayal of "Ira Nympharumf'

Music it was we brought from Heaven,
On an Angel's breath so pure,
And it alone may we carry back,
As a thing which shall endure.
And thus uplifted do we mount,
Like some celestial throng,
To realms of world-forgotten joy,
On wings of living song!
-Sarnuel Richards ' Gaines.
OME have written magnificent verse, trying to describe the wonderful
beauty of music, others have written great essays, but how little these
can describe the great magic art of music which is the most glorious
of all arts, the one heavenly thing of which the earth has the giving. How
true it is that music is a necessity of daily life. Without it, life is barren,
there is no warmth, no universal feeling of comradeship, and there is little
joy. It is the harmonizing influence of the universe as Fletcher inferred
when he said, "Let me write the nation's songs, and the laws will take
care of themselves." Discord vanishes where music enters. Music
awakens the individual to the beauties of the world in which he lives and
gives him a store of experience which will enrich his whole life. There is
no mind, youthful or mature, however clouded, that can withstand the
power of music. This is because it has a wonderful three-fold nature, for
it begins as a language, which, in its simplest utterances, even a little child
can understand. Then the artistic side of music appears and leads on
through endless paths of beauty, and last, it has been found to be the most
profound and exact of all the sciences. Stephan Emery compares it to a
noble river "though small and unobserved at its source, winding at first
along its tortuous way through opposing obstacles, yet ever broadening
and deepening, fed by countless streams on either hand until it rolls on-
ward in a mighty sweep, at once a glory and a blessing to the earth."

TREBLE CLEF CLUB
Treble Clef and Glee Clubs '
HERE are four musical organizations in our high school, two of which
are the Treble Clef and Glee Clubs. The Treble Clef Club is composed
of forty-two girls, and the Glee Club has a membership of thirty-
eight boys. These clubs are under the direction of Miss Parker, the in-
structor of music in the school. They have been wonderfully trained as
has been proved by the great demand for their services Nothing could
be more beautiful than the sight of these clubs when seated on a platform,
ready for their program. The girls wear middies and white skirts and the
boys, dark suits. Sometimes the boys wear white trousers with dark coats.
Ruth Garman is accompanist for the Glee Club and Nonie Kuehner for the
Treble Clef. These clubs have many effective numbers which they sing at
entertainments. One of the many places at which they have sung is the
Lindo Theater. It is by these means that it was possible for these clubs
to have their annual banquet, which was held in the High School.
It was a great event. Every year as graduation makes it necessary for
Seniors to leave, Freshmen come in and take their places. High School
always has a great deal of musical talent. A growing future for these or-
ganizations is assured, until Mr. Fulwider's ambition-a school chorus of
two hundred Voices-be realized.

Senior Short Story
CONTRARY TO THE LAW OF THE JUNGLE
By Marvin Burt
"You know, Doctor, in all the years I've spent on the 'Dark Contin--
ent', so called, I have never, but once, seen a male animal give its life, or
risk it, to protect its young," said a deeply bronzed, middle aged man, as he
sat puffing stoically on a long cigar. Colonel Ramsay was famous throughu
out England and on the Continent for his valuable contributions to science
by means of his knowledge of anthropology and biology. He had spent the
greater part of his very active life in the heart of Africa studying animals
in their native state. His battles with wild creatures furnished material
for many an evening's entertainment at the Lions' Club, where he now
passed a comparatively sedentary bachelor existence. Colonel Ramsay
was tonight, as usual, the dominant figure in a small group of well-to-do
gentlemen of leisure now, formerly bankers, merchants, politicians, and
aristocratic land owners.
On this particular evening they were gathered about the big open
hearth of the smoking room of the club, oblivious to the driving rain out-
side, that beat a steady tattoo upon the windows. The conversation had
swung around from the weather to crops, crops to farming in general, then
to cattle, and was now embracing animals in general, wherein lay the
strength of the Colonel as a conversationalist.
He addressed the Doctor as was his wont, for Doctor Victor was his
particular crony, and personal physician. A farmer friend had said that it
was "funny how the father of most any kind of an animal hated the
young." He had seen litters of pigs destroyed by the raging boar. Bulls
were known to crush out the life from a young calf in their hatred of some-
thing, no one knows what.
' The Colonel lit his stogy slowly before going on with his story. The
men in the select group settled back comfortably for the anticipated yarn.
A few, slowly exhaled circles of smoke seemed to refresh his memory, if
it needed any refreshing.
"Yes, sir, I think I never saw such a terrible scene, and yet so touch-
ing. Mother-love is old stuff, but father-love, such as only a man has, in
an animal is a dangerous thing for a would-be molesterf' Another puff.
"Well, I was working up the Ugambi River, about four hundred miles
from the coast, one sultry afternoon. The air was oppressive. The over-
hanging trees formed an arch over my head that seemed to emphasize how
completely the jungle had me in its grip. The silence of death appalled
me: on land, over head, and under water lurked unseen dangers.

"As night came on, I looked for an opening in the underbrush along
the shore for a place to land my little barque for the night. The dense
growth on the banks seemed as solid and unbroken and silent as the jungle
in the background.
"Before long I came to a shallow stretch of riffles, and a landing
place. It was evidently a ford for the jungle animals to cross the river.
On the left bank seemed to be the best camping site, so I pulled over to
that side. What chance! I might have taken the other side and missed
the whole affair!
"I pitched camp on the bank of the river, built a small fire, and
settled down to a quiet meal and a smoke. Along about nine o'clock I
heard the swishing of the underbrush in the distance, and the scurry of
some small animals that happened to be in the way of the prowler. I
remembered that it was a very common fact that a tiger will, when it is
desperate enough, prowl at night. I was surprised to be able to hear him
so clearly, but attributed it to the fact that the dead leaves and the low
overhanging vines and branches of trees made that sort of noise.
"I am usually untouched by qualms of fear, but nevertheless, I picked
out a good tree to climb if Mr. Tiger should come around me. You haven't
got much chance in the dark, because they can creep up and get you be-
fore you have time to turn around.
"The low rustle came nearer and it was evident to me that whatever
it was, it had not seen me or the fire yet, or it would have made less noise.
To my horror, the thing kept on coming until, through the bushes, I saw
two fiery eyes, gleaming like coals of a fire, at me. Seizing my gun, I
fired at the point where I had seen the eyes, but I guess I missed, as I
couldn't hear any cry or see anything when I examined the place. I re-
solved to play safe and perch in a tree for the night, so choosing a broad
limb about twenty feet off the ground, I strapped myself to it and to the
trunk of the tree, and fell asleep.
"I awoke with the sun. The dawn in the jungle is a 'beautiful and
inspiring sight. All the living creatures, birds, animals, and the plants
awaken for the coming of a new day.
"I was about to descend from my uncomfortable position when there
came a crashing and thundering from the depths of the jungle. In a
moment a herd of half a dozen elephants burst into my view. They
passed directly under me to the water. They had no sooner drunk their
fill than a few timid zebras came down and drank. Several smaller
animals did likewise, to my great discomfort, for after being cramped in
one position all night, I was eager to get down and exercise and find some-
thing to eat. I
"I thank my lucky stars now that I didn't go down, for I would have
missed one of the most exciting things I think a human being has ever
been privileged to see.

"With a lot of noise and confusion a family of gorillas, led by the
huge father, came through the thicket into the open space along the bank.
The mother left the young apes, which numbered four, and went down to
drink. When she came back papa ape disappeared into the woods in search
of food, presumably. ff
"The young gorillas, ranging from a newly born to a promising young
fellow of, I should judge, four or five years, snooped around for beetles,
or rolled on the sand in sheer joy of living.
"This happy family scene continued for half an hour or so. Suddenly
I saw a long, yellow and black striped body slink 'cautiously up to the
very edge of the opening. I was terror stricken at first, then raging mad,
and then fascinated. With the careful trend of a cat, this tiger, doubtless
the same one that had been here last night, stalked his prey.
"Finally he reached a spot directly behind the mother ape, where he
could spring in one mighty leap upon her as she sat there watching her
youngest at play, and carry her off into the woods. Then he seemed to
change his mind and decide that a young one would offer less resistance
and be a tenderer morsel than the mother. At any rate,lhe crept over to
where one of the younger apes lay and watched her for several minutes.
"While I was thus absorbed watching this little group and the im-
pending tragedy, the bull ape was returning via the treetops. He seemed
to sense impending danger and was swinging along from limb to limb.
Directly overhead, he paused to look down. I could see the terrible ex-
pression on his face as he first saw the tiger crouching for the spring
upon his own young. Those bare fangs, red nostrils, and tense muscles
in his great arms gripped me with a sense of pity for the poor tiger.
"Like a bullet he sped downward' just as the hidden destroyer leaped.
He jumped the last twenty feet and lit squarely on the tiger's back, bowl-
ing him over. The young ape lay between the paws of the tiger, uncon-
scious. The great gorilla stood up on his hind feet, emitted a roar the like
of which I have never heard. It seemed to typify all the brute hatred that
animal is capable of. Then he tore in on the tiger, who was recovering
from his shock enough to show iight.
,"From then on there was the most furious action you can imagine.
The tiger snarled and bit. The ape grappled with those huge arms and
hands. He seized the tiger by the throat with one hand and threw his
entire weight against him, forcing him to the ground in his embrace. The
tiger struck a stunning blow at his opponent's head, making him relax
the strangle hold on his jaw.
"Quick as a flash the tiger was on top with his fangs deep in the
muscles of the other's arm.
"With a supreme effort the gorilla staggered to his feet, dragging the
burden of the tiger's body up with him. He struck the fingers of his good
arm in the face of his adversary and tore out great chunks of hair and
cf Q s eDoLnu1sQfeMW f 5 at
flesh. The eHort was too exhausting, however, and he fell backward onto
the sand with the tiger clinging motionless to his arm. He seemed to grow
lax, then become tense again, and then rigid, in death. The tiger, bleed-
ing and exhausted, relaxed his grip and fell back to recover a moment.
"That, gentlemen, was my experience in the jungle, and I have the
hide of that tiger and the gorilla to remember it by."
His pipe was out, the listeners began to talk again, for the first time
since the opening words of his story had held them spellbound.
Junior Short Story
NO ONE WILL EVER KNOW
By Eugene Lattig
"A piece of plain paper, not worth the cost of a match to burn it up.
That's a fine will for the old codger to leave to his nephew."
"Doc was a peculiar fellow, and for my part I'll bet there's more to
this than either of us imagines."
When Doctor Beasley died there had been much speculation as to the
amount of his will. It was well known that Dick Little, the doctor's
nephew, was the only possible heir to the estate.
The two men who were commenting on the will were the late doctor's
lawyers. Before them lay the will and attached to this was a paper,
alluded to in the will as very precious.
This paper, together with the estate, was to become the possession of
Richard Little as stated in the will.
' Sli HK if
"I always thought my uncle was a rather queer old duck, but to have
him will to me this blank piece of paper, makes me think he must have
been plumb crazy," was Dick's comment to his chum as the two sat before
the fireplace in the late doctor's study.
"Now listen, Dick," his friend Tom Dexter remonstrated, "that paper
must be worth something, if it's only a joke."
"Oh, I've tried everything from steam to smoke, why I've even
burned this corner of it and the blamed thing's just as black as ever,"
was Dick's answer.
"Why you clumsy 1-V' Tom suddenly bent over the mysterious
paper and began to scrutinize it closely. In reaching for a glass of wine,
Dick had accidently upset the remaining contents of another glass onto the

paper, and now slowly, first dim and then growing brighter, oddly shaped
characters were appearing.
"I've got it" suddenly exclaimed Dick. "That's the code my uncle
taught meg he used it while he was a general in the war."
After half an hour's study Dick had written the contents of the
unique message in English letters and the two set out Cas directed by the
messagej at eleven o'clock at night on the day that they should discover
the meaning of the mysterious paper.
As the two adventurers left the house, both felt with a start the
gruesomeness of the journey before them. Close to the earth all was quiet
and still, save for the continual howling of a dog far away on the other
side of the small town. Up above the wind was blowing thin, black clouds
before the moon, at times enveloping the earth in grim darkness and then
again the smaller clouds would cast ghost-like shadows over the surrounds
ing country. P
The old Beasley homestead stood in a lonely spot just beyond the out-
skirts of the village. And a half mile beyond that across the open fields
lay the graveyard in all its ghastliness. The grey tombstones stood in
long, silent lines like an army of ghosts standing guard over the witch-
Slowly, and with measured tread, the two crossed the open fields and
entered the stillness of the burial grounds in silence, not daring to trust
their voices in speech. Richard Little led the way to the heart of the
cemetery and stopped before his dead uncle's tomb. He was about to
whisper to Tom when suddenly the latter uttered a muflied cry and jumped
back. As he did so a large toad hopped away.
"My God," breathlessly whispered Tom, "that toad hopped onto my
foot and for a moment I imagined that something had grabbed it."
Doctor Beasley's tomb, the only one in the cemetery, was an under-
ground affair, that is partly underground. In constructing it, a hollow
had been dug one-half as deep as the height of the finished tomb. Above
the level of the ground, steel archs held up the ceiling, which was made
of stone, as was the rest of the tomb. The outside of the tomb was
covered over with sod, and it had ,the appearance of a small hill. The
tomb was entered by some concrete steps leading down to a heavy iron
door which was securely fastened by a huge iron padlock.
As the two adventurers crept slowly down the steps the stillness of
the place grew even more noticeable. Some crickets, which had been
chirping at the foot of the steps, grew silent. Dick drew from his pocket
a flashlight and handed it to Tom. Next he brought out the key to the
padlock on the door and began to unlock it. As Dick opened the door inch
by inch it creaked on its hinges and grated on the stone floor. When the
door was at last open, Dick took the Hashlight from his companion and
advanced cautiously into the tomb. Tom followed him closely and as
4 a fsfxfx X Q29 Q gig,
Dick turned the flow of light into each corner in turn, both peered wide
eyed, in order to become fully acquainted with their surroundings. As
the two advanced several more steps they became aware of the damp,
cold, wierdness of the place. In moving toward the rear of the vault both
the dead man's nephew and his companion were to take their eyes from
the marble box that held the coffin in which lay the corpse.
At the back wall of the death chamber, Dick kneeled down and began
to count the stone blocks. First three over from the right and then up
five stones from the floor. Then with his hand he slowly pushed on the
right side of the stone slab and the left side swung out toward him.
Suddenly there was a rustle of dry leaves and grass mingled with
squeals and something with sharp claws flew into Dick's face and scratched
him. As Tom, who was holding the light, saw him frantically fight off
the gopher he laughed a low, hysterical laugh, the weirdness and silence
of the place were beginning to tell on his nerves. After that Dick turned
to his work with a vim, he must get Tom into the open air as soon as
Reaching into the opening in the wall Dick drew forth, from the
leaves and grass brought there by the gophers, a strong box, one he re-
membered having seen in the late doctor's study.
In spite of his anxiety to know its contents he put the box under his
arm and turning around, he and his chum left the grave as quietly and
stealthily as they had entered it.
Upon entering the house, both of the adventurers were attracted by
the sound of the grandfather's clock striking the hour of one.
i'We have only been gone an hour and a half," excaimed Tom. "It
seemed to me that we were ages in that tomb."
Dick opened the box and to his surprise its sole contents was a small
bottle and under this a paper bearing the following words:
"Dear Richard: It seemed that after your mother's death, you were
the only one left in this, to me, unfriendly world, that really cared for me.
I am ready to die. Should you ever tire of this life as I have, drink the
contents of the bottle that you will find, together with this paper. I have
spent months in perfecting it. At last I am ready to drink it. It brings
an instant and painless death within three hours and leaves no trace of
its work. I have prepared everything to the fullest extent. After hiding
this strong box where you will find it, I shall take my medicine. The
doctors will say my death was caused by heart failure. No one will ever
know. May you enjoy life, if that is possible. Good bye."
When Dick finished reading the note, he picked up the bottle and
walking to the fire emptied its contents on the blaze. "No one will ever
know," he said.

Sophomore Short Story
THE LITTLE CAPTAIN
By Beryl Bennethurn
A quiet breeze sifted through silken curtains into little Captain Phil's
cool shady room. The stillness of the room was intensified by the rum-
bling vehicles along the dusty thoroughfare.
Unmindful of the hours, a boy lay silent and motionless in a bed. A
mass of curly brown hair framed a white face. Indifferent to his sur-
roundings, he was not aware of a figure crossing the room to his bedside.
"San," she said in a tender voice as she bent over the apparently
sleeping lad, "are you asleep ?"
She looked anxiously into his face. A pair of brown eyes drowsily
opened to her own. She knelt, raised his fevered head to her shoulder
and laid her cheek against his.
"Your face is so cool and nice, mother. Were you in the garden ?"
"No, dear, we were out by the river far away from the city. It was
so lovely there-all the time I kept longing for you. There were some
little boys there, just about your size, splashing about in the Water, hav-
ing such a good time."
"Don't, mother. Some other time when it isn't so nice out, when it's
rainy or cold, or when the pain is better, but not today. Do you think it
will be long now, mother ?"
"No, dear," she brokenly replied, "It can't be long. God is good and
kind. He doesn't like to see little boys suffer. But look! I have some-
thing for you from your old chum, Dan. Reach in my pocket and get the

"Did Dan really send it, mother ?"
"Yes, son. Here is his card saying, 'From one soldier to anotherf
See, isn't it beautiful ?"
She spread the silken ensign over the bedspread. The boy's fingers
moved, caressingly, along the stripes and lingered gently among the silver
stars. A flush of pride spread over his face and his eyes burned with a
strange, unearthly light. In fancy he could see the distant battle fields
fringed with tropical growth. Swamps alive with all sorts of crawling
things. Brave men, wounded and dying. His eyes filled with tears. His
figure stiffened and his eyes lost their peculiar brightness.
"From one soldier to another," he murmured softly. "I must be
"Brave, laddie! Why, you're a hero, as brave as any!" It was she
who winced at the sun that merely blanched her son's cheeks and drew
his mouth into straight, determined lines.
"A tangled spine isn't much of a joke, is it, mother ?"
"No, dear. But you must fight the pain."

"Yes, yes. We'll fight it together. I'll be the army and you'll be my
mother waiting for her hero to return."
His face lighted with excitement and pride. Unsteadily his mother
walked across the room, her face in her hands. She could not bear to
look in his eyes. The next minute she was back again.
"Dearest, you'll be the captain. We'll fix this flag above your tent.
See? It will be over you night and day. When you are attacked by the
enemy look at your banner and think of all the other brave soldiers who
fought beneath it."
"Oh, it's grand, mother. I believe the enemy is retreating. I am so
sleepy. Will you close the door of my tent? Old Glory will keep guard."
His eyes slowly closed in slumber. The mother gazed at her child with eyes
blurred by tears, then with a smothered sob, closed the door and left the
The chamber was dark save for a faint glimmer of light from the
shaded chandelier. A cool breeze fluttered the silken flag above the little
captain's head. Within his imaginary tent he stirred uneasily. His
mother expected an outburst of delirium but he only murmured some-
thing about blood stained flelds, quite unaware of cool fingers passing
across his forehead and through his tangled curls. As the tiny clock
chimed the hour of midnight his voice rang out:
"Mother, the flag! Quick! It's the enemy !"
"San, it's all right. Mother is here beside you." Her arms went
about his neck.
"The flag! Hurry, mother!"
She pressed the tiny staff into his hand.
"Goodbye, mother, you'll wait for me when I come back? I must go
now. Can't you hear the bugle calling? They are coming! See? Over
there in the dark! Hordes of them with terrible faces, carrying sharp
pointed knives! Blood everywhere! Captain Phil is your leader!"
The mother sank upon her knees beside the bed and clasped him in her
arms. Every word he uttered was like a sword's thrust into her heart.
Suddenly he flung himself forward, furiously waving the tiny flag.
"No! No! Go back! Come no nearer!"
"Phil, little son !" It was terrible to realize that he no longer knew her.
"They're going! The cowards! On, my men! On to victory!"
For a moment he swayed, then gasping for breath, fell back upon the
pillows. A great stillness filled the room. Tremblingly she lifted the
silken flag. Beneath it lay the smiling face of her dead boy.
"Phil-Captain-Conqueror!" She picked him up and passionately
kissed the still lips. "Home, little son-home from the war, a hero to the

Freshman Short Story
By Phyllis Wagner
In the dirtiest and most crowded part of New Canton lived the Hen--
ning family. It consisted of seven dirty children, who lived without a
mother and whose father was not much of anything. Sneakie, the oldest
child, was a red haired, freckled face boy, and although only sixteen had
worked six years in a factory.
One night when Sneakie came home from work he was much excited.
His father had stolen a valuable airedale dog a number of weeks previous
and when the reward was offered he intended to take the dog back. Mr.
Henning had stolen a number of things in the past and the police were
"laying" for him, so it was impossible for him to get the reward. Sneakie
had made friends with the dog and called him Buddie. Mr. Henning
wouldn't allow Sneakie to touch the dog when he was around, but the two
managed to get into the woodshed together whenever Mr. Henning was
One Saturday afternoon Sneakie slyly slipped of with Buddie for a
little hike. They had not gone far when Sneakie caught sight of a wonder-
ful bubbling creek. The water looked so cool and the day was so hot that
Sneakie couldn't resist the temptation. His clothes were off in a moment
and in he jumped. Buddie was in the water two or three moments before
him. Neither had had a bath for a good many months, so you can imagine
how cool and refreshing this felt. All of a sudden Sneakie got a crampg
he felt himself going under, and realized that it would be foolish to call
for help, but out of real fear the usual distress signal was given, "Help!
Help!" Buddie was at his side in a moment. Poor Buddie, it was all he
could do to hold Sneakie up, but he kept tugging until finally Sneakie real-
ized that once more he was on dry land. When he regained consciousness
he threw his arms around Buddie and gave him one long affectionate
This incident made Buddie and Sneakie better friends. Buddie ac-
companied him to and from work and was seldom found off guard.
One Sunday Sneakie and Buddie decided to take a long walk. They
were walking by a fashionable house when all of a sudden someone began
calling, "Fashion, Fashion, come to sister." In one bound Buddie was up
on the porch with a sweet looking little girl. Sneakie cautiously walked
up to her and said, "Could I have my dog?"
"It's my dog, you naughty boy, and you can't have him. Papa, papal
I found my dog!" H
A large heavy set man came from the rear of the house. "Well, well
how did you find Fashion, Betty!" A
"This naughty boy says it belongs to him."

"So, this is the boy who had our dog." Sneakie didn't have time to ,
say a word as the man had grabbed him by the collar and dragged him
.fxfigggg fsfsfsvs QE? fx X Us 4?
into the house.
"Mister, mister, I didn't--."
"Shutup, I am going to make you feel sorry for what you have done."
With this he went and got a huge riding whip. "Stand out there in the
middle of the fioor. Did you hear what I said ?" By this time the whip
was hitting Sneakie's legs.
"I didn't do--."
"What do you mean by talking to me? Just for that, I am going to
whip you longer." Buddie heard Sneakie's pitiful cry and had pulled him
away in a moment.
"I am going to kill that dog. He isn't going to be your friend any-
more." Sneakie couldn't speakg he was so weak.
"Go home, you Vagabond, and if I ever see you again I'll strap you
some more." With this he kicked Sneakie out of the door.
Sneakie's life was ruined. He had had no other friend besides Buddie
and now he had been taken away from him. Sneakie went home to lead
the unhappy life he had before Buddie appeared.
Mr. Crane, the man who owned the dog had many more dogs just like
Buddie. He didn't even care for him but still he couldn't bear to see any-
one happy. Mr. Crane had no friend because he treated everyone just as
he treated Sneakie.
Do you think that he would have been happier if he had made Sneakie
happy by giving him the dog?

Feed yourself or start to talk,

In your little go-cart neat,

Each one out to take a ride,
Then the bike and roller skate,
Till you reach a man's estate,
Autos then you'ZZ navigate.

Has grown strange and still.

Have come down their musty ladders,
And they gaze with blinking eyes '
At Nature's preparation.

With a crowd that's laughter mad,
And the gulls go screaming boisterous
Just above the icy waves.

To lift your eyes to the pale blue skies

Or smoke of a flying train,
It all has a certain charm for me
Just like sunshine after a rain.
The smoke from the farmhouse sails along
And disappears in the sky,'

How the heavens can hold this supply.

Senior Class Poem
Senior Class Poetess
The time has come and we must part,
Yet we linger by the way,
And pause a bit and ponder, for
We've a few brief things to say.
Four years ago we entered,
With hope and courage strong,
And a firm determination
To seek and right all wrong.
The time sped on too swiftly,
But the passing years have brought
A glorious satisfaction
In the work which we have wrought.
The world, from without is beckoning,
It sends out a shining ray,
And tells us to come to its bidding,
And cast seed along the way.
For this world of ours is a stage,
And each plays his part upon't,
So whether the part be great or small,
The stage is there-and we're on't.
To fight our way and make a path
For those who will follow after,
And of all the trials and pitfalls
We must make ourselves the master.
That you to whom we surrender
This torch of light and of fame,
Shall advance and conquer as we have
And shall reap in the end the same.
To teachers who so oft have helped us
We're grateful and thankful too,
For their patience and persistence
In the tasks we've had to do.
May the ideals which we've cherished
Lead the way though the road be long,
As each takes up his own burden
And lightens the load with his song.
May we give the best that is in us
With each task that must be done,
And feel that our life has been fruitful
When our last battle is won.

HE rise of the star of the class of nineteen
hundred and twenty-four has been a real
event in the annals of Freeport High School.
Four years ago when our star first appeared
on the horizon of F. H. S. it was a tiny, insignifi-
cant thing with its points hardly developed, and
colored a greenish hue. As the year progressed
however, the five points of the star, scholarship,
athletics, school spirit, oratory, and dramatics,
gradually, began to be distinguishable from the
nebula of good material.
Many students of our class maintained high
scholarship averages throughout their four years.
1 Sixteen of our class were elected to the National
- Honor Society. Scholastically we have tried to
Isadora Haight keep apace with the ideals of Freeport High
School, and we have made that point of our star a bright and shining one.
The star-point representing athletics has not been neglected. We con-
tributed to the combined success of the football, basketball, track, and relay
teams. The class of twenty-four can claim five of the eleven men on the
heavyweight team that won that never-to-be-forgotten victory over the
Rockford football team on November seventeenth, 1923. A member of our
class was anchor man on our victorious relay team, which broke all records
for the relay between Freeport and Rockford. We were boosters not only
for all forms of athletics, but we did our best to promote clean sportsman-
ship, winning or losing.
In our Junior year, students of the class of 1924 helped with the re-
naissance of Debating. Oratory was encouraged both by our Sophomore
Contest, by the participaton of some of our members in the J unior-Senior
Extempore and Reading Contest in 1923, and by our .Senior Contest at
which original orations on the Constitution were delivered. Thus another
point of the star was brought forward.
The Dramatics-Music point of our star has also flourished. The
Treble Clef and Glee Clubs included many members of the class of 1924,
and the four musical comedies, "O Hara San," "Springtime," "Miss Bob
White," and "Kathleen" have been enriched by our talent. The play
"Nothing But the Truth," presented in 1923, was one of the wittiest, most
spritely comedies ever presented in Freeport, and our Senior play,
"Friendly Enemies" was a superb combination of pathos and humor.
In order to spread broadcast the growth and prominence of our star
two publications were sponsored. The Weekly Polaris was published
through the eHorts of three Senior boys, and it has become a real factor in
our school life. The twentieth volume of the Annual Polaris was also pub-
lished by the class of 1924. With the aid of Miss Ryan the staff have done
their best to produce a book worthy of the name, Polaris.
The class of 1924 is proud to follow in the footsteps of the classes that
have gone before us, and during our four years of life in Freeport High
School we have striven to live up to the ideals and traditions of the school
and yet to create something worth-while of our own that will serve as an
inspiration to those that follow us.

NCE more a graduating class has arrived at
the day when it will leave the halls of Free-
port High School to face the manifold
duties of life. Now that we have arrived at this
fulfillment of our dreams, we realize that the
many failures and shortcomings as well as the
successes have been far more significant in our
development than they previously seemed. Rather
than follow the usual procedure of a commence-
ment speaker, we shall endeavor to give a word
of warning and advice to the underclassmen of
our glorious high school, not because of any sense
of superiority on our part, but because we now re-
Wilbuf Gafman alize that experience is a great teacher.
The present day emphasis in all lines of en-
deavor is upon the economic. Most phases of life are now interpreted
economically. Religion, history, government, yea even education, are now
judged by economic standards. The iniiuence of this philosophy of life
has led to many of the evils in our present educational system.
'Education, in many instances, is no longer a method of obtaining a
liberal culture. It no longer aims solely towards the preparation for a pro-
fessional career. Students strive toward the goal of wealth and financial
independence. Teachers no longer prepare their students for life as a
whole, but they fit them merely for a life in industry. Specialization has
taken our American educational system by the throat and is swiftly
choking it to extinction.
Some specialization it is true is necessary to fit oneself for a full par-
ticipation in the busy aiairs of men, but there is also another side of life,
-that portion of man's days spent in leisure, when for his spiritual uplift
and mental growth he must have had a type of educational development
that transcends mere professional training-an education for a liberal cul-
ture. The primary object in life is to meet, to understand, and to be
understood by one's associates. These things can be accomplished more
easily by the means of a liberal education and culture.
Present day educators disregard the needs of our American Youth:
they disregard the almost pathetic appeal of a weary, world-worn society
for a release from the exactions of this our material existence, with its mad
rush of money making and its accompanying sordidness and bitter realities.
They cry for a life of spiritual wealth with the happiness and moral growth.
Educators must remember that even if a nation is strong enough to
conquer the world, yet it is weak if it lacks spiritual strength. So it is
with the youth of today. He may be strong financially, and have the world
at his feet, yet he is indeed weak if he has no spiritual or moral training.
It is for modern educators then, to fit our students not only to acquire
financial independence, but to gain spiritual development as well. T

Senior Mantle Speech
UST as great waves rolling on a vast ocean
leave their mark on the seashore, so do the
Senior classes, departing, leave behind them in
the history of the school, records of achievements
and honor, which serve as lighthouses to guide
struggling underclassmen in the march to that
glorious victory which we have attained at last.
The winds and storms, which create these waves
and disturb the entire ocean, are the problems
and difiiculties that have confronted every class
during its voyage of four years. Strong winds have
blown and severe storms raged on our course,
causing ours to be a mighty wave, and thus leav-
Milton Babcock ing a permanent and far-reaching impression up-
on the student body of the school. After all, real
success comes only to those who confront these problems with sheer deter-
mination and solve them by careful thought and constant labor.
Classes may come and classes may go, but our school goes on forever.
Year after year the mantle is bestowed upon the Junior class by the Sen-
iors. Our class has finally traveled safely over this dangerous ground
with its numerous pitfalls, mires, and sloughs of despond, over which you
Juniors are to journey. Now we are about to enter into new and various
fields of work. Even though it is the proper and customary procedure to
do so, we consider it both an honor and a great privilege to be able to be-
stow the mantle upon such an accomplished Junior class as you are. Judg-
ing from the quality of your class-play, the splendor of your J unior-Senior
Banquet, and the school-spirit of your class, yours has been a successful
year. But, have you accomplished more than any other Junior class? Or
have you done much more than was expected of you?
As -our immediate followers, we deem it your proper obligation to
maintain, elevate, and extend those high standards of scholarship, service,
leadership, and character which are established institutions in our school,
and which,we hope, have been raised and furthered by our constant eforts.
As Seniors, you will be the leaders in the school. We advise you to be
original in all your enterprises, for originality displays to some extent,
genius,-a most necessary factor in the success of any undertaking. Be
confident in your ability to do things and strive incessantly to attain the
ideals which you have set before yourselves as a goal to gain.
Your class is now rising to the surface and developing into a wave on
the sea of this institution, fanned by the winds of inevitable difficulty.
And when the sun of triumph sinks into this vast sea of opportunity, may
your wave reflect the crimson rays of success upon the pages of the history
of our school. With the bestowing of this mantle, we the Class of '24,
offer you our most sincere wishes for your success.

Junior Mantle Speech
OR three long years, your great and accom-
plished class has been our model for all high
ideals and brilliant attainments. Now, we
Juniors are ready to put aside our childish ways
and take up all the responsibilities which you Sen-
iors are leaving to us. You have not only set high
standards for us in character, but also in scholar-
ship, drama, and leadership. Since we have one
more years of background than you have, and
your high standards to follow, we should be able
to accomplish even greater things than you or
other previous Senior classes have done.
We admire you as a Senior Class for all the
Dorothy Frank good things you have done for F. H. S., but most
of all for your clean character and good scholar-
ship. You no doubt remember that five of your members were elected to
the National Honor Society in their Junior year. To us, as Sophomores,
that seemed an unusual number, but now, as Juniors, we find that six of
our members have been elected to that society. You Seniors have been
proud of the fact that you have been leading in the Honor Roll, but, since in
the last few months, the Juniors have been in the lead, we shall, no doubt,
have a larger Honor Roll next year than ever before.
Partly due to the co-operation of your class in supporting us, we have
made a great success of our Leap Year Carnival and "Green Stockings."
We hope that we have given you a glorious farewell and one that you will
never forget-our Junior-Senior banquet. We also hope that this will
mark the beginning of a successful career for each and every one of you.
When you Seniors leave, F. H. S. will be losing some brilliant leaders
who have led her onward to that much desired goal-victory. We shall be
benefitted by their accomplishments and profit by their experience. Thus,
the leaders of our class who take their places next year ought to be able to
lead us to a goal far in advance of the one that you have reached. We will
confront all difficulties with cool heads and overcome them in the manner
that we think best. We will strive not to lower the high standards you
have set before us, but to raise them, if such a thing be possible.
We, the Senior Class of 1925, are now ready to accept with grave
concern the mantle and all its dignity which is bestowed upon us by one of
the most efficient classes that has ever graduated from Freeport High
School. Our aim will be to better the character of the institution and
serve it in all the ways that will add to its fame and honor.

DEFINITION OF A KISS
A thing of no use to one, but much
prized by two,
Nothing divided between two.
The only really agreeable two-faced
action under the sun, or the moon
What the child receives free, what the
young man steals and the old man buys.
The food by which the flame of love is
That which you cannot give without
taking, nor take without giving.
Time was raised in the lapse of ages.
Now you tell one.
'Can you spell Homicide?"
"I can make a stab at it."
"Gee, Mary, the moon does enough
damage now, but think what it would be
responsible for if some one put a soft
silk shade on it."-J. K.
THE 23RD PSALM UP TO DATE
The Ford is my car,
I shall not want another.
It maketh me to lie down in wet places,
It spoileth my good clothes,
It leadeth me into deep mud holes,
It leadeth me into the paths of ridicule
for its name sake.
It prepareth a breakdown for me in
the presence of mine enemies.
Yea, tho' I run through the valleys I
am towed up the hills.
I fear great evils while it is with me.
Its rods and its engine discomfort me.
It anointeth my head with oil.
Its tank runneth over.
Surely to goodness, if this thing fol-
loweth me all the days of my life, I shall
dwell in the house of the insane forever.

STRAIGHT TO THE MARK!
The game in Sherwood Forest and the ene-
mies of King Richard of England had cause to
fear the arrows of Robin Hood. Straight from the
bow of the benevolent bandit flew the barbed
shafts, hitting their mark every time.
Saving money is as necessary to success in
life as was accurate aim to Robin Hood. The pos-
session of actual cash permits you to go straight
to your goal, for the man with the dollars, rightly
or wrongly, commands respect.
The best and surest way for a young man to
accumulate money is through a savings account.
Why not start one with
