J unlor History ,
' HEN we wended our various ways
through the wide-flung portals of Free- zz
port High School, a very awe-stricken gi
herd of inexperienced children, we hadn't the Q,
slightest conception of the wonders to be ac- ii
complished in the span of three years just
When our first group officers were selected, Q .
"Red" McNary, president, Bill Stover, vice- 2
president, and Bob Dorman, secretary and ll
treasurer, we thought old Daddy Time with his E
inevitable scythe a mere laggard, but we have T
since found out differently, because it didn't i
take long for our Sophomore year to roll '
K That was when we really started to make ii
, , ourselves noticed. With Johnny Graham, Pete If
Wlulfam Stover McClanathan and Ed Hall, we had a real trio of 5
Hlstoflan leaders. Under their management we staged I
the annual Sophomore Oratorical Contest in which John Graham, our presi-
dent, proved to be the choice of the field. 5
But the year which was to follow was to prove to be the most event-
ful. Our head engineers were Carl Becker, Harry Wurtzl, and Ruth Gar- fl
man. Eugene Lattig was chosen as mantle speaker, and Miss Cravens was S
our chief advisor. 4 i
We were very well represented in athletics, with Strahm, Grier, il
Wurtzel, Stimpert, Broughton, McClanathan, and Keith on the light weight 5 I
football team, and Jones, Neidigh, Bentley and Heinen on the heavyweight i'
team, and Bentley chosen at the end of the season to be captain next year. i f
In basketball, the championship lightweight regulars, with two excep- EQ
tions were Juniors. These Juniors were Strahm, Stimpert, Broughton, Mc- .
Clanathan, and Swartz, and on the heavies were Keith and Neidigh, the
latter being captain-elect of next year's heavyweight team. 5,
Our first important act of the year, outside of election of oflicers, was I'
the staging of the Farmer's Fair. Here all who attended were supposed to
array themselves in the costume of "Josh Perkins of Punkin Center," and I
make it a real Farmers' Fair. And that is just what it was. The Follies, lj
a real innovation on the Juniors' part, was the main attraction. Instead Q'
of the usual feminine cast of characters, this year the follies was made up I
of beautiful boys dressed in the customary scanty costume of the true f
chorus girl. It was a scream. Well, that was just a good starter. Next
came the Junior Play entitled, "The Whole Town's Talking". It was a H
dandy. And, to cap the climax of as perfect a year as you'd want, we fin- I
ished off with an unusually successful J unior-Senior Banquet at the Ma- 3
sonic Temple. I
Much credit must be given the officers and advisory board for the '
excellent year which we have had. Special credit is due Carl Becker, pres- ,
ident, and Miss Cravens, chief advisor, for their splendid work in making if
this one of the best years ever. 5
Yes, Old Father Time surely can travel. Here we are, ready to assume l T
the duties of Seniors. Here's hoping our rabbit's foot continues to exert 1
its present good luck over our class in our one remaining year, the one 2
which we hope to make the greatest of the school's history. L

bonnits en aperns. Well i got round a corner en i herd a noyse like a thow-
sand bees a buzzin thru a funnil en a terrible flash of litening en i got

They hed a Minstrul ,Show en Jumpin Jupiter i shor thet they was
niggers en they terned out ter be rele wite girruls. They shore cood sing

Sophomore Class History
OW that we have struggled through our
Freshman year, we feel very proud to say
we are Sophomores.
The first eventful thing we did was to
elect our competent oflicers. The following
were elected: President, Kenneth Kerling Vice-
President, Phyllis Wagner, 'Secretary-Treas-
urer, Robert Criddle.
The Sophomores are proud to claim as
their football heroes-Rodney Smith, Ralph
Johnson, Donald Botdorf, Walter Greier, Martin
Schlegel, Robert Rowley, and John Coughlin.
Historian In basketball we made 'em step, too, With
Ralph Ruthe, Donald Botdorf, Paul Rhode,
Harold Perry, Forest Bender, and Dale Fair,
on the teams. Donald Botdorf had the honor of going on the Ansonia trip.
We were well represented in the band and musical organizations.
In "Princess Bonnie", the Sophomores showed great ability in appear-
ing before the glaring footlights.
In the extemporaneous speaking contest of Good Speech week the
Sophomores were representd by William Lambert. In the Sophomore
essay contest Ruth Fredericks won first place and Harriet Wallahan
We hereby resolve to show old F. H. S. that we are the peppiest and

Q Freshman A Class History
N September 5, 1924, seventy eager knights
and ladies arrived ready to enter the lists
of school success on the tournament
grounds of F. H. S. Though untried and ignor-
ant of the ways of the tournament ground, we
boldly unsheathed our lances and entered the
In the joust of the First Six Weeks some of
the weaker classmates fell before the onslought
of English, Algebra, and Occupations. Those
, Who survived the first attacks went bravely on
to win for themselves and for their class honors
on the jousting field.
Elizabeth Hartman The tried knights and ladies of the school
Historian oflicially welcomed the newcomers at the Senior
Reception given in the gym in October.
At the tilt of Better Speech in December the Freshmen again entered
the lists. In the interclass extemporaneous contest William Hildebrandt
valiently defended the Freshman colors. In this contest not only the
knights distinguished themselves, but one of the ladies, Margaret Kline,
won renown as the author of the second prize short story.
Because of the talent displayed in his speech given before the assembly
during the Polaris drive, Lee Madden was deemed worthy to be the leader
of this band. He was assisted by Donald Dick, vice president, and Charles
McCool, secretary and treasurer.
In the athletic tournament a few Freshmen boys won their spurs in
football and basketball.
Many Freshmen have succeeded in winning a place among F. H. S's
valiant defenders in the jousts of School Activities. One of the class's
greatest distinction, however, was won in the Scholastic Meet when the
Freshmen had many names on the Honor Roll.
The class of 1928 has proved that they are capable of hard work and
by the help and cooperation of the entire class we hope to make it one of
the best classes in Freeport High School.

II Freshman B Class History
' ' N the 26th of January, 1925, seventy
Freshmen walked up the sidewalk and
into the high school. We looked around
wondering where we should go. After many
hasty inquiries of dignified Seniors we finally
found our class rooms.
Of course we were true-to-form Freshies
at first, and were very "green" and bashful.
We were even frightened when We heard three
bells, the signal for an assembly. However, all
this timidity soon wore off and We learned to
enjoy assemblies as well as all the other activi-
I ties of F. H. S.
I Grace Lied
Historian Soon after school started, the Freshman
B girls were invited to the meeting of the
Junior Orange and Black Club. Many of the girls attended it, and all who
were there enjoyed it very much because they were treated so graciously
and because they became better acquainted with the other girls in school.
A few weeks after school started we were called to the library for our
I, first meeting to elect officers. James Rought was elected President,
I' Marguerite Broughton, Vice President, and Alma Rahn, Secretary and
I We were represented on the honor roll each time by a number of
I This is only the first part of our life in Freeport High School. During
I our four years we will take part in the activities and help to keep up the
II high school's record as one of the best in the state. I am sure that at the
.I end of our four years we will graduate with honors.

Pat, as he is known, has attained one of his
most cherished ambitions for Freeport High School
in coaching a championship team. He has even
gone farther than that and coached two champion-
ship squads, one in Basketball and one in Football.
Pat, who is one of our own High School's pro-
ducts, is a good sport and a wonderful mentor. '
Coach Moon, like Coach McLean, came to Free-
port as a stranger with a good reputation. He took
two squads of what looked to be impossible material
and developed two championship teams.
With Coach Moon with us next year we can ex-
pect two full fledged shields instead of one shield
and one tie.
Mac came to Freeport High School fresh from
college. He carried a reputation of some force as
an all-conference tackle from the University of Col-
orado. The reputation was correct, he was a foot-
ball player to the n'th degree. As Coach of the line
we have but to look at the season's victories to judge
Coach Jones of the track team is another
stranger with a reputation. He is the most versatile
athlete ever entertained in Freeport High School.
He had a wonderful record as a track star at
DePauw University and also as a member of the
I. A. C. of Chicago.
He has, like the rest of our strangers, done
wonders with his squads.

HE Freeport High School Football teams of 1924 passed through one
of the most successful seasons ever known to the school.
The Heavyweights won first the Big Seven Title and then the
Intersectional meet with the Ansonia, Connecticut, High School team.
The squad led by Captain Bill Brooks was always fighting and was un-
doubtedly the finest team ever developed in Freeport High School.
The team started with a bang and kept the pace all through the
season. They commenced with East Aurora 31 to 63 took the LaSalle-
Peru-Township High 31 to 7 5 stepped on Elgin 16 to 9, slid through Joliet
by the skin of their teeth, 10 to 93 walked over DeKalb 46 to 0, gave West
Aurora the short end of a 20 to 6 score, and best of all, trimmed Rockford
24 to 0 before the biggest crowd that ever saw a High School game in
Northern Illinois, then to make the at-home season a complete success
they smacked Englewood High of Chicago 30 to 10.
Came the final honors of the season, the Heavyweights took a trip to
Ansonia, Connecticut, to play their team on Thanksgiving day. Ansonia
had not been beaten on their own home field for four long years. Freeport
taught them football to the tune of 33 to 0. This was the greatest feather
ever hung on the helmets of any Freeport High School team.
The trip to Ansonia was made as short as possible to give the team
as much rest as they could get. They went from Freeport to Chicago,
Chicago to Pittsburg, Pittsburg to New York, and New York to Ansonia.
After the game the fun began. They viewed the Yale Bowl, went
sightseeing in New York, and then went down for a look at Washington,
D. C. While in Washington they visited the White House and had the
honor of shaking hands with President Coolidge. After all this excite-
ment they came back home to be greeted by a veritable mob of enthus-
This, the season of 1924, was the highest peak that football has ever
attained in Freeport High School and we all hope that the season of 1925
will be just as good.

HE Lightweights also did the joyful unexpected in the 1924 season.
They started with a throng of candidates and no football playersg
they finished up with a throng of football players and not a candidate.
When the season opened the lightweights looked as if they were going
to be the bottom team on the Big Seven list. But through hard work and
lots of it, and by the coaching of Paul Moon they turned out to be the real
thing. They suffered but one defeat and that from Elgin, 3 to 0. During
the rest of the Big Seven season they took everything.
Even at the beginning, their steady-going machinery showed signs of
real intelligence. In the first game with East Aurora they prodded on to
a 3 to 0 victory. The second conference game was that fateful one, with
Elgin winning 3 to 0. This game showed how Freeport could fight, but a
dropkick spoiled our slate. The third conference game was the victory
over Joliet 14 to 0 with nobody bucking against the score. Freeport light-
weights were beginning to show signs of real class in football. For the
next round to victory they smacked the last year's champs, DeKalb, for a
7 to 0 victory. They eventually tied with DeKalb for the championship,
but they showed that they were the better team in this game. Next they
stepped on the west High aggregation to the tune of 21 to 7.
Then came the final and best victory of the year. The Lights polished
off the Rockford Lights 10 to 0, and thus placed themselves in a tie with
DeKalb for first place. A
The season was a grand success for all concerned. It developed some
new material for the next year's heavyweight squad and it made a lot of
new players for the next year's Lightweight squad.
With Coach Moon at the head of the squad next year, the lightweight
team should be another winner for the school.

REEPORT High School can well be congratulated on the athletic field
at the New High School Site. It is the finest of its kind anywhere in
the State of Illinois.
The students of Freeport High School should give a vote of thanks
to the men who were influential in securing this stadium for our school.
Prominent among the men who worked for our interest was our Principal,
Mr. L. A. Fulwider. He has been a booster for a real athletic field for
Freeport High School for several years, and it was due to his help in the
organizing of the campaign for the field that the stadium was finally se-
cured. The other men to whom we are indebted for making the field a
reality are the men on the Board of Education. It was through the efforts
of these men: G. F. Korf, R. C. Rowen, J. P. Stover, Dr. J. Sheldon Clark,
Mr. F. E. Furst, Mr. M. W. Graham, Mr. R. A. Hunter, Mr. Frederic Wag-
ner, and Mr. C. O. Shunk, that sufficient money was raised to finance the
building of the field. They are thanked elsewhere in this book but our
appreciation can never be fully shown.
The field itself is the finest of its kind anywhere in the Middle West.
It has a half mile track and a two-twenty yard straight-away for the track
events. Down inside of the big track in a bowl is the football field with
bleacher seats on the east and west sides. There is space for more bleach-
ers at both ends of the field. On the south end of the football field is an
open space in which has been placed a large score board which can be seen
from all parts of the field.
The pits which are also at the south end are all packed with cinders.
There are pits for board-jumping, high jumping and pole vaulting. Also
there is a ring pit for the shot put. All the track and the approaches have
been dressed with a very fine grade of cinders. The track. as it was for
the spring track season of 1925, was one of the finest in this part of the

REEPORT High School has again placed a heavyweight team in the
championship classes. The Freeport Heavies, headed by the most
versatile "Bunny" Paul, has cleaned house on the Big Seven Con-
ference teams. A Big Seven season without a defeat is the standard they
have set for the teams of the following year.
They started the season with a bang and kept it up from one end to
another. The only stains on their otherwise clean slate were the ones put
there by Beloit, Wisconsin, in a rough and tumble game, and the one that
Belvidere had checked up against us in the game at Belvidere.
The real thrills of the season were the three games with our friendly
enemies at Rockfordg three defeats for Rockford. The first a non-con-
ference, the second a conference, and the third the tournament game.
These, above all things, can give F. H. S. something to crow about.
The only real sorrowful part of the season was the loss to Elgin at
the Joliet Meet, 10 to 9. It was hard to believe, but the grief was soft-
ened by the fact that the score was so close in a battle with the State
The team composed of Stewart, Pollock, Paul, Keith, Goodrich, Nei-
digh, and Bere, was one of the fastest combinations ever seen in the Free-
port uniforms. They were bears on offense and when it came to defense
the idea of the opposing team was, "just try and crack it." The iioor
work was a wonderful thing to see, with the passing going like clockwork,
and the shooting always around the rim of the cage.
The sportsmanship shown at the game was very good. Coupling the
sportsmanship with the good team a grand all around success was achieved.
We wish the team of the following year as much good luck or rather
as wonderful a team as we have had this year. With the material left, the
team next year ought to be a very clever one, indeed, and we wish them
all of the luck there is.

OACH Moon has done the expected thing this year with his Light-
weight Basketball Squad. He started it in the beginning of the sea-
son with a rather bleak looking outfit. He, as usual, lived up to his
reputation as a man who could build a team if anyone could.
The Lightweights also have had a wonderful year in their basketball
season. They, like the Heavies, started with a bang and canned eight
through the season for a Big Seven Conference Shield. They gained the
high honors in this year's tilts by making a complete circuit of the Big
Seven without losing a game. They took everything into camp that came
their way and then at the end of the season they gave the best men to
the heavyweights to form a real Tournament squad. In the Tournaments
the lightweight regulars did their best in keeping the name of Freeport
well in the public eye.
The team composed of the regulars, McClanathan, Stimpert, Brough-
ton, Blackiston, Bender, and Swartz, coupled with the unfailing support of
the remainder of the squad, was a band of the hardest fighters ever seen
in the pony division. They never knew when they were beaten and when
they were ahead they still fought as if their life depended on the game of

during the season and a third time they helped in daring them in the

The team of this year is going to leave quite a lot of backbone for the
next year's team to build upon and they are wishing that the next year's
squad will be as clever a band of players as the team of '24 and '25.

O Mr. Cross, the faculty advisor of the Athletic Council, is due much
credit for the success of the past football and basketball seasons. He
has handled the finances of the Athletic Association for the last six
years and his worth as manager of such is well-known. To him also is
due, in a large measure, the trip the heavyweights took to Ansonia and
through the East.
Under his leadership, the Athletic Council has worked together as a
strong organization to put Freeport Where she belongs on the Athletic Map.
The Council is composed of students, picked from all four classes.
Each one is assigned a room to canvas during fifth hour. Each member
is responsible for his room and is expected to make good. The increase
in the sales of student and adult season tickets showed that the Council
was doing its best to make this the most successful year for Athletics in
Freeport High School.
Resume of the Athletic Season of 1924-1925
HE Athletic season of 1924-1925 was a Wonder for F. H. S. The foot-
ball teams started out with the Big Seven Titles fthe lights tied with
DeKalbJ. After Winning these honors, the heavyweight team Went
east to Ansonia, Connecticut, and trimmed their team 33-0. It might be
added that Ansonia had not been defeated for four years, previous to the
game with Freeport.
The basketball teams, both Heavies and Lights, then Went out and
gathered in the big seven championships. The Heavyweights next took
the honors at the District Tournament held here. In the Section Tourn-
ament they were crowded out by Elgin in the finals by a 10--9 score. We
can Well be proud of that close score as no one else came that close to de-
feating the State Champs all year. ,
When the track season came 'around the team again did their duty
in keeping Freeport's slate clean and her record victorious.
On the Whole, Freeport High School has had the most successful
athletic season in the history of the school.

O WRITE about society is a delightful task because it is similar to
writing a book. It has its beginning, climax, and ending, With inter-
vening chapters bubbling over with interest.
True to form, let's start our story with "Once upon a time" there was
a high school in a town named Freeport. In this high school the students
were always busy with various activities-football, basketball, track, dra-
matics, band, orchestra, and studies. But, in spite of all this, they still
had a little time to devote to society.
In the latter part of September, the Senior Class of this school gave
a "get-acquainted" party to the Freshmen. Timid Freshmen-dignified
Seniors-everyone was there. The Seniors entertained their little friends
at a short program in the assembly and then everyone adjourned to the
gymnasium to dance. Then came the refreshments. All too soon the
party came to a close, but the Freshmen enjoyed themselves immensely
at this, their first party of their high school career.
The Hi-Y and Orange and Black Clubs of this school were very en-
thusiastic followers of football, and to show their appreciation they enter-
tained the football men of the Freeport and DeKalb teams on the evening
of the DeKalb game. Madame Maida and her helper fmuch to the discom-
fort and embarrassment of the guestsl read the minds of a number of
those present. The rest of the evening was spent in dancing. Even the
refreshments were good!
NOTE-CNow we come to the climax of our storyj.
The Rotary Club of this town, in recognition of the splendid work of
those invincible, can't-be-beaten football teams, gave a dinner-dance, the
most wonderful party in our high school career. Gorgeous,Aartistic dec-
orations, a delicious dinner, a delightful program, and then a dance after
the dinner. We can only say-'twas a queen of parties.
Again these football men were entertained at a matinee dance given
to celebrate the defeat of the Ansonia, Connecticut, team.
The Pep Club, true to its name, sponsored a lovely dancing party in
the gymnasium in honor of the football men. The gym was artistically
decorated in orange and black. The Pretzel orchestra furnished the music
and the only disappointment in the evening was that all too soon the danc-
ing had to stop.
Every Christmas a matinee dance is held at this high school and the
alumni are invited. Therefore, according to custom, three days before
Christmas, exclamations of joy could be heard issuing forth from the gym.
The matinee dance was in full sway. Was it a success? It was "all too
short" is the answer.
And then came the Farmer's Fair. Who could forget it? Dancing,
sideshows, refreshment stands, the Follies, everything that one could ask
or Wish for. It was an evening of riotous fun.
The Cramberry party is the next thrilling chapter in our Society
Book. If possible, it surpassed the one given last year. It was a George
Washington party with a grand march, an old-fashioned minuet, and
George Washington favors. Music for the dancing was furnished by
Allington's orchestra. It was a huge success from beginning to end.
A basketball banquet was given at the Sigma Tau Delta Club rooms
early in April in honor of the Big Seven Championship Basketball teams.
The teams showed that they could eat and dance nearly as well as they
could play basketball. U
And now we come to the end of our story-the J unior-Senior Banquet.
In nearly every story they say that the ending is the most beautiful part
of the story and our story is no exception. ,Seniors of Freeport High
School, can you ever forget that party which seemed like a dream itself?
A delicious dinner, short "good-luck" speeches and then the dancing! A
Wonderful night in June! A gorgeous ball room so artistically decorated,
the banquet, charming little favors, a good orchestra. For what more
could not ask? Juniors of F. H. S.-the Senior Class wishes to thank you
for making this last party of their high school career the best. It
And now, our friends of Freeport High School, who have been the
main characters in the plot of our '25 Society Book, we end, true to story
form, with the wish of all bookish wishes. As Senior authors We trust
that you "may live happily forever afterf'

HIS is an age of organizations. This spirit is encouraged and fost-
ered in the Clubs of Freeport High School. We do not have just one,
two, or three, but we have Clubs here, Clubs there, Clubs everywhere.
Oh, such fun as is derived from the meetings! Sometimes we are in
France, then again we go to Spain to learn the language and customs of
the people. Once, 'twas on the Ides of March we were taken to Rome and
there dined after the manner of Caesar and Cicero.
Noon lunches have been served frequently to the Honor Society, the
French and Spanish Clubs. Movies, parties, Carnivals, and matinees spon-
sored by the organizations, have kept the school spirit aglow, and have
done much to relieve the monotony of study.
One of the outstanding parties this year was given by the Cramberry
Girls. The decorations were gorgeous, and as far as having a good time-
well, just ask someone who attended. They will tell you.
"Candy Sales! Bake Sales! Sandwich Sales! Don't forget to bring
your dimes." How often this year have we heard this cry. Just another
manifestation of the friendly and co-operative spirits created by the Clubs.
The three new Clubs, Home Economics, Dramatic, and Commercial,
which were organized this year under their capable advisors, have had a
very successful beginning. The Home Economics and Commercial Clubs,
besides being noted for having a commendable social spirit, have done
much to create a greater interest in the Commercial and Domestic Science
Departments of High School. Much ability and talent has been manifested
by the members of the Dramatic Club, and the various plays staged by this
organization both in the High 'School Assembly and the Lindo Theater
have been received with much enthusiasm.
The sentiment of the High School student is:
"I'd rather join a Club
And help to make it run
Than just sit around
And watch the rest have fun."

FEW years ago a small group of boys met at the Y. M. C. A. to
organize Freeport High School's first Hi-Y Club. It's purpose was
to create, maintain, and extend throughout the school and commun-
ity a high standard of Christian character.
This Hi-Y Club has grow and adhered to its purpose, sent out in-
duction' teams and organized clubs in other towns.
This Hi-Y Club of 1924-25 state with pride that its membership roll
has surpassed all other years. Ithas carried out its purpose ofk creating,
maintaining, and extending a higher standard of Christian character
through Freeport and its school.
A few weeks after school started in September the Hi-Y Club began
a call for its members. When the new officers who had been elected the
year before announced the opening banquet of the Club, over sixty Juniors
and Seniors signed the Hi-Y pledge. All following meetings showed an
average of over half the members present every Wednsday night.
In carrying out the Hi-Y purpose, the ofiicers secured most of Free-
port's best speakers and many out-of-town speakers.
Beside the Hi-Y's regular Wednesday night meetings, the Club's social
calendar consisted of many parties, banquets and other high school events.
During the past season the Club held three banquets: the opening
banquet, the mid-season banquet, and a closing banquet, when the officers
for the coming year were in charge.
Then, too, the Hi-Y sleighing party was a big event, for more than
forty members went out on the bob to a nearby town.
Then came the big Hi-Gob Carnival held in the Y. M. C. A. by the
Girl's Orange and Black Clubs and both Hi-Y Clubs. It was classed with
the best carnivals ever put on in Freeport.
We had a great number of representatives at the Older Boy's Con-
ference at Elgin, and the Older Boy's Conference in Freeport could not
have been a greater success.
The last big event before we closed our season was our Hi-Gob picnic.
This was the biggest and finest event of the social year and all were shown
the time of their lives. ,
Now that the history of the Club is closing we place on the- new
oflicers the responsibility of the Hi-Y and the old spirit of "Carry-On."

HORTLY after school started last September, a small group of Fresh-

With the help of the advisor, Mr. Ware, the Junior Hi-Y was able to
carry out a very successful program throughout the year. The meetings
of the club were held every Tuesday in the Y. M. C. A. club rooms.
The leading events of the year were the pre-semester banquet which
was held in February and a series of talks given by Rev. F. C. Sayers.
Then came the Hi-Gob Carnival which is an annual event conducted by
the Hi-Y and Orange and Black clubs. In April the Mother and Son Ban-
quet was held. This was followed closely by the Hi-Gob picnic. The
closing banquet concluded a most successful year for the Junior Hi-Y Club.

ll HE Senior Orange and Black Club is a club with a definite aim and
purpose, namely-to support and encourage school spirit, in every
phase, to further social service in the community, to uphold the high
standard of scholarship in Freeport High School, and to promote suitable
social affairs in the High School.
Under the leadership of the President, Maxine Miller, Vice President,
Eleanor Kennisong Secretary, Ruth Garmang and Treasurer, Gertrude
Demeter, accompanied by the able assistance of the faculty advisors, Miss
Jacka and Miss Johnson, the club has made this year one of the outstand-
ing years in its history.
The meetings were all educational and entertaining, each terminating
in a pleasant social chat, dancing, or bowling. At one of the meetings
the process by which the President of the United .States is elected and also
the general routine of any election was described to us in detail. At an-
other meeting the girls were given some knowledge of first aid. The dif-
ferent types of first aid work were illustrated and discussed by Miss
Ploeger of the Evangelical Deaconess Hospital. Another time Miss Holmes,
of the Y. W. C. A., gave the girls a very beneficial talk on Hobbies. The
girls endeavored to find out their indivdual hobbies which proved very
The club sponsored several Sandwich 'Sales in order to raise money to
give some needy family a happy Christmas. With the proceeds, gifts,
food, and clothing were bought.
On Christmas morning a number of the members also carried joy to
the "shut-ins" by singing carols at the hospitals, the jail, and several other
At one meeting the club pledged twenty dollars to the Y. W. C. A. as
their service to that organization. This money was raised by the club by
different methods such as the Hi-Gob Carnival, Sandwich sales, and others.
The Hi-Gob Carnival and Halloween Party were two big social events
sponsored by both the boy's Hi-Y and the Girl's Orange and Black Club.
Everyone knows that neither would have been a success without the help
and support of each senior Orange and Black club member. The girls
attended to the decorations and the refreshments and also sponsored a
very clever stunt. Each of these added materially to the attraction and
financial returns of the evening. However, the girls gave a very clever
social event of their own, a "Washington Party". This was held at a
regular meeting at which there were suitable decorations, games, refresh-
ments, and favors.
The Easter program which was given at the Y. W. C. A. in April was
one of the most enjoyable of all the meetings and served as a close to a
most successful year, both socially and educationally.

IFE, for the Junior Orange and Black club girls, is not all play, and yet
not all work, as the well filled program for the past year, planned to
meet the club purpose of providing increased opportunity for social
life, service, and spiritual life, clearly shows. The unusually large active
membership for the year speaks for the success and popularity of the
club, and refiects credit on the work of the officers and the advisors.
The club year started pleasantly last fall with the Welcome party, a
"baby party" for all the incoming freshman girls. The members of the
club, dressed as pert, capped and ribboned nursemaids, escorted their baby
guests, the entering freshmen, to the Y. W. C. A., where girl babies, boy
babies and nursemaids forgot their dignity, and played games until the
baby show. Then the "better babies" were chosen by a faculty committee.
Elleen Donnelly was chosen as the cutest girl baby, Ina Witte as the
cutest boy baby, and Frances Henson as the best all-around baby, and
proud were the nursemaids whose Uinfantsi' carried off these prizes. The
party was so much enjoyed that it was decided to make the baby party
an annual affair for the club.
The dressing of over fifty attractive dolls, which were sent as a
Christmas gift to Chinese school girls, gave the girls of the club an op-
portunity to live up to their service standard. These dolls were exhibited
at a doll show before being sent away, and prizes for the best-dressed
dolls were awarded to Vinona Miller and Annagene Prall. Other activities
for the year included a week-end house party for the cabinet, officers, com-
mittees, and advisors, a Christmas playlet, "A Christmas Night Dream,"
a series of meetings devoted to the practical study of etiquette, the Hi-
Gob Carnival, the welcoming of the second semester freshmen, a Lenten
luncheon at the Y. W. C. A., the election of officers for next year, and the

LL anyone has to do to be "peppy" is to be born that way, made that
way, and feel that way. The Pep club under the supervision of the
sponsor, Miss Van Kessel, and of the oflicersy: Maxine Miller, presi-
dent, Eleanor Kennison, vice president: and Berniece Nelson, secretary
and treasurer, was born peppy, made peppy, and feels peppy.
More and more the Pep Club is coming to realize that the dizzy grind,
and the ivory-topped athlete are both too onesided. Without doubt the
normal happy medium is the truly well-rounded high school girl. She is
both a sportswoman and student. In the best sense of the words, she is
the saving grace of the high schools. The girls in this club try to measure
up to the standard which we recognize in the phrase: "An athlete, a
student, and a good sport."
This club, although limited to one hundred members, is made up of
Freshmen, Sophomore, Junior, and Senior girls. These girls attend all of
the football and basketball games. They can always be identified by their
deafening shouts, Haunting penants, and their arm bands of black and
yellow. Steady team-work with every girl working for the good of the
club, is the club's point of superiority.
So far we have told you nothing of the social talents of this club.
This talent, however, has not been hidden under the bushel. The girls
entertained the football squads at a Christmas party in the gym in cele-
bration of the winning of the conference titles.
The organization of the Pep club has done a great deal towards
strengthening and enlivening the athletic life of the high school. It is
an organization of which we are justly proud.

HE school year of 1924-25 was one of the most successful in the his-
tory of the Latin Club, an organization which has been making itself
felt more and more in the school. Sixty-four students were enrolled
in the club, plus several transients whose names were later erased from
from the roll when they passed on to other schools.
At the first meeting of the club, the following oiiicers were elected:
David McNary, president, David Burrell, vice-president, Edwin Hall, sec-
retary-treasurerg Miss Moody, class advisor.
Virginia Smith was appointed chairman of the program committee,
but later resigned in favor of Ruth Seidel. A great deal of the secretary
work was done by Louella Shouer, as Edwin Hall was unable to attend
all the meetings. Very much of the success we obtained this year was due
to Ruth Seidel and Louella Shouer.
The influence of the Latin Club was felt in many ways. They spon-
sored the showing of several sets of slides depicting Roman life, and they
could always be counted on to take the lead in any activity. The Latin
Club established the unique record of never being compelled to send
around more than two notices calling for the payment of dues during the
entire year, and was one of the first organizations to pay for its pages
in the Polaris.
All the meetings were made interesting by special features-drama-
tized scenes, interesting speeches, and slides-but the greatest social
event of the year was the great "Ides of March" banquet, given at the
high school on the evening of Saturday the fourteenth of March, 1925.
At this banquet all the dishes were served in a Roman style making the
gathering interesting and unusual. The speeches given were well re-
ceived, and other amusing and instructive features added interest to the
occasion. The banquet was probably the biggest social event sponsored
by any language club in school in recent years, and the club feels it is
permissable to be slightly proud of that fact.
Refreshments were served at several other meetings, and very little
was ever wasted.
In any peppy organization like this one, the deadwood members must
be few in number. This was true of our organization, for only a small
percentage of the roll call did not at some time take an active part in the
work. Those few usually refused to pay their second semester dues and
were dropped from the roll, thereby clearing the way for the success of the
club. Look over the picture accompanying this history, and you will see
very few members who are not in good standing.
The Latin Club, therefore, is a highly efficient one. When the fric-
tion is practically eliminated for a machine, when it is kept constantly
moving and supplied with fuel, that machine is bound to be a worthwhile
one. This one was. Many times students, pausing by the bulletin board,
have been attracted by an artistic poster, and realized that the Latin Club
was doing something, and that speaks for itself.

Le Cercle Francais
HE first meeting of the French Club, Le Cercle Francais, was held
in the library one fifth hour-not a very promising time or
place for the beginning of a successful year for any club. Esther Hall
was chosen president, Lucille Pack, vice president, and DeVore Hitchner,
secretary and treasurer. Committees were appointed to take care of pro-
grams and refreshments.
The French Club in the past has attempted to teach its members in
the most interesting way some things that could not be learned in classes.
This objective has determined the nature of the programs.
One of the most entertaining ways of increasing one's knowledge
of the language is by taking part in, and listening to plays given entirely
in French. 'Several interesting plays were presented during the year.
Plays of the most interest to the members of the club were chosen and
presented by members of both advanced and beginning classes.
The game "qu'est-ce que c'est", cross-word puzzles prepared in
French, and musical numbers by some of our talented members helped to
make the programs enjoyable.
The meetings, for the most part, were held in the assembly after
school, where it was more convenient to give programs. At these meet-
ings appropriate refreshments were served. Beginning with the February
meeting, however, we held our meetings during the noon hour in Room 25.
The Cooking classes obligingly prepared appetizing lunches for us for the
small sum of twenty five cents. This method of holding our meetings was
very much enjoyed by the club.
During the latter part of 1924, the French Club donated two dollars
and a half towards buying a prize for a school contest. As our only other
expense was our pages in the Polaris, we possessed a respectable little
sum in our treasury at the end of the year.
The year of 1924-25 has been one of the most successful years that
the French Club has had. It is the hope of those members who will be
graduated that the French Club of 1926-27 will continue to thrive and to
be as successful as the club has been this year.

L CIRCULO CASTELLANO was organized in the year 1924 for the
purpose of encouraging interest in the study of Spanish. The club
has successfully continued this year, and has proved to be a really
live organization living up to its original purpose. Membership is lim-
ited to those who have successfully completed one semester of Spanish.
This restriction was made so that all members would have a knowledge
of the Spanish language.
For the past two years El Circulo Castellano has been under the in-
spiring leadership of Miss Constantine, Head of the Spanish Department.
Miss Constantine has been aided by the following officers: President,
Gerald Sheridan, Vice President, Carl Becker g Secretary and Treasurer,
The ofiicers have been ably assisted by the following committees:
Irene Taylor and Ralph Kachelhofer, Program Committee, Harold Nei-
digh, Maryetta Gage, and Leslie Evans, Social Committee.
The club has been active in sponsoring social functions this year.
At the second meeting, which was a party, new members were initiated
into the club, games were played and the entire affair was a very en-
At the third meeting a Spanish play was presented to the club by the
members of the beginning class. This type of program has proven to be
the most enjoyable because of its simple language and Spanish idiom.
Later in the year, a matinee dance was sponsored by the French and
Spanish Clubs. At the dance an orchestra composed of members of the
two clubs furnished the music.
-In May, El Circulo Castellano gave a musical for its members at
which a great deal of latent talent was revealed.
Cur season's activities closed with an out-of-door picnic held in con-
nection with the other language clubs.
The fact that the club has a very large membership this year, and
that with pep and enthusiasm the members have responded when asked
to take part in any of the club activities is due largely to the competent
This year the club has been very successful and it is hoped that
next year it will continue its prosperous course. The club is a success
for it has lived up to its purpose of furthering the study of Spanish, the
social side has not been neglected, and all the members have enjoyed

HE Commercial Club was organized last fall by the students having
credits for two semesters of commercial work. The purpose of the
club is threefold: 1. to promote interest in the business world, 2.
to become acquainted with modern, progressive business methods and
systems, endeavoring by such means to raise and maintain a higher stand-
ard of efficiency: 3. to discover and serve the business needs of the com-
munity. Any person having credit for two semesters of commercial work
and carrying at least one commercial subject is eligible to membership.
The club has been under the leadership of Miss Kumhera, head of
the stenography and typewriting department. The following officers were
elected at the first meeting: President, Ena Cookg Vice President, Mar-
garet Knauffg Secretary, Pauline Kieckhaeferg and Treasurer, Helen
Koym. Program committee: Margaret Knaui, chairman, Helen Perry,
Gertrude Demeter, Zita Boland and Letta Eli. Refreshment Committee:
Vivian Gleason, chairman, Edith Beine and Joanna Beck.
Beginning last September interesting meetings were held the first
Thursday in each month.
At the first regular meeting, the members discussed the plan of in-
terviewing local office managers to find out what points of training should
be emphasized in order to make the graduates of commercial courses more
competent and efficient. Printed questionaires were later distributed
to members, who worked in groups, to collect the desired data. The Club
is indebted to the few business men who cooperated in this attempt to
improve the work of the Commercial Department.
The Club had the pleasure of hearing several speakers during the year.
At the December meeting Mr. Fulwider gave a very interesting talk on
stenography and typewriting in the business world. The Need of Good
English was another point strongly emphasized in his talk. '
Mrs. Kidd was the speaker at the January meeting. She gave a very
interesting and inspirational talk on opportunities for girls in the business
world, discussing secretarial work in detail. Mr. Korf and Mr. Raines also
gave instructive talks which were thoroughly enjoyed. Other features of
the programs were musical numbers, readings, and vocal solos.
The Club sponsored a sandwich sale and made enough money in this
enterprise to pay for their pages in the Annual Polaris. '
A May Breakfast successfully ended the initial year of this club.
Under Miss Kumhera's guidance the club in its first year .has ac-
complished much and we hope that next year it may continue its pros-
perous course. 1

Home Economics Club
HE number of organizations of F. H. S. was increased this year when
a club was organized for all girls who had had two semesters in the
Home Economics Department and were enrolled in the third semester,
or had already completed three semesters work. Temporary officers were
elected, and they, with the aid of Miss Normile and Miss Judy, the faculty
advisors, formed a constitution, and appointed a committee to select a
name for the Club. When the first regular meeting was called in Novem-
ber, oflicers were installed, and the organizations was christened the Home
The purpose of the society is threefold: to promote and emphasize
the common interest of the Food and Clothing Departmentsg to develop
ideas of service to others, to bring home and school in closer relation. The
girls have been inspired by these purposes and have heartily participated
in all the activities of the Club throughout the year.
The programs are held the second Wednesday of every month, and
are planned as a means of entertainment, education, and inspiration.
The members of the Club have been especially fortunate in being
privileged to listen to several interesting talks by prominent Freeport
people. Among these were Mrs. F. E. Furst, who spoke on the European
Girl, and Miss Guiteau, who gave a book review of the Home Maker.
During the Christmas Season the girls manifested the spirit of giving
and their thoughts of others by sending Christmas cookies to the Orphans
of St. Vincents. The members of the Club also enjoyed a Christmas
party at this time.
The one meeting enjoyed most by all the girls was held in February.
At this meeting new members were taken into the Club and a humorous
initiation ceremony took place. The goddesses of food and clothing, before
whom the girls took their oath, will surely never be forgotten.
Then came the mother's party. This was a huge success, and I am
sure all the mothers who attended realized the value of the organization
to their daughters.
The April meeting was in charge of the new members, who royally
entertained all the rest of the Club.
With the coming of spring, plans were made for a big picnic, which
was later held at Krape's Park. The same social spirit and good eats for
which the Club is noted were predominate in this last gathering.
Thus the first year of the Home Economics Club came to a close. If
each coming year is as successful as this first year has been, there is no
doubt that the Home Economics Club will remain one of the most pro-
gressive organizations in school.

HE Grey Dominoes was one of the new clubs that came into existence
here this year. The real inspiration was furnished by our new pub-
lic speaking teacher, Mr. Jones. Under his leadership the year was
made very interesting for the members.
At Mr. Jones' suggestion, it was decided to limit the membership to
twenty people. In order to carry out this plan, students were required
to try out for membership in the club.
The tryout, at which each person was required to read a portion
from three selected plays, was held as a test of the dramatic ability of the
prospective members. The interest shown in the club was evidenced by
the number of students who tried out.
The following officers were elected: President, Kenneth Osterbergg
Vice President, Gladys Steinekeg Secretary and Treasurer, Elizabeth
Meetings were held every two weeks at which interesting and novel
programs were given during the first semester. At the beginning of the
second semester, however, the club met each day as a Dramatics iClass.
This class studied the art of make up, character acting, and dramatic
acting. They also prepared several short plays which were given before
The major activity of the year was the presentation of three one act
plays given in the High School Auditorium for the benefit of the Weekly
and Annual Polaris. The plays were, "The Step-mother," "The Make-
shifts," and "The Maker of Dreams." These were all cleverly given and
displayed excellently the talents of the Dramatic Club.
All in all, the initial year of the Grey Dominoes was very successful
and proved that a Dramatic Club can be a credit to a High School.

EASURED in terms of the aims set forth by the founders of the
organization, the Cramberry Club has had a most successful year.
Through its interesting and instructive programs and its varied
social activities it has furthered literary interest among the upper class-
men, at the same time combining the betterment of scholarship with
The membership of the organization is limited to Senior girls having
an average of eighty-five in all subjects.

Francis Briceg Secretary and Treasurer, Joanna Beck, Chairman of the
Social Committee, Eileen Cahillg Chairman of the Program Committee,
Gladys Steinekeg Chairman of the Publicity Committee, Verla Berg,
Chairman of the Membership Committee, Nellie Ederg Faculty Advisor,
The first meeting was a birthday party celebrating the birthday's of
Eugene Field, Phoebe Carey, Hamlin Garland, and the first anniversary
of the club.
In October stories from Poe and Irving with a clever pantomine
carried out the spirit of Hallowe'en.
Miss Guiteau, Who is known for her splendid book reviews and her
talks on club work gave us at our third meeting some helpful ideas in
regard to our work. She stressed the importance of harmony and cooper-
ation. A feature of each meeting was a review of some recent book.
The Christmas program given at the county home was one of the
biggest events on the years' calendar. About thirty girls were able to
attend. Small presents were given and the girls were very happy in help-
ing someone else enjoy Christmas.
Along with our work came a social event in the form of a George
Washington party. The gym was artistically decorated in patriotic colors.
Bunco and dancing were the main features of the evening.
In April an open meeting and spring tea were given for' all Junior
girls eligible to become members. This was to stimulate interest among
the girls and to show them how we conducted the club so that next year
they may follow in our footsteps.
Another prominent event of the year was the May breakfast. At
this time the new oflicer were formally installed and the name was an-
nounced of the girl who had earned the most activity points and whose
name should be added to the shield contributed by last year's club.
At a Christmas dinner and reunion the Cramberries of last year
organized an alumni association to which the Cramberries of 1925 will
be eligible in June. The object of the association is to keep the Cramberry
alumni in closer touch with one another. -

HREE years ago there was organized in this school the Freeport
Chapter of the National Honor Society. This society, conforming to
the requirements in the constitution of the National Honor Society,
was organized to "create an enthusiasm for scholarship, to stimulate a
desire to render service, to promote leadership, and to develop character
in students of the American Secondary Schools."
Members of this society are elected by a faculty committee consisting
of Mr. Fulwider, Miss Reitzell, Mr. Mensenkamp, Miss Courtney, and Mr.
To become a member one must stand out among the students for four
essential qualities: election to membership is based on scholarship, lead-
ership, 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 schol-
arship alone, but must also meet the three other requirements.
A great deal of interest in the society is manifest. Eagerness to be-
come a member is being shown by the students. The idea of an all-round
education is coming to be more and more desired.
The Society gave a luncheon and an induction assembly for the new
members. To them Mr. Mensenkamp presented the club pins. They spon-
sored a matinee dance, also, a Dramatic Club play. This play, "The Step-
mother," in which Jane Borgmier, Kenneth Osterberg, Virginia Smith, and
John Daacon played roles, was given at the Lindo, April 28 and 29. In
addition, the Society sponsored its annual banquet for graduates and

Annual Book Drive of 1925
"Where's your tag ?" was the question most heard in the halls last
February during Good Book Week. Red tags were everywhere, hardly a
person passed who was not loaded down with anywhere from two to fifty
tags, each tag representing a book or five pounds of paper. Anyone who
walked about the halls undecorated by these tags was regarded as a school
A good library should furnish a well-selected and up-to-date collec-
tion of reference books to supplement the Work of every department, be-
sides good books of all types for general reading matter. In order to sup-
ply this growing demand for books and to supplant the many books that
wear out yearly, it has been found necessary to provide some means that
would be both inexpensive and effective for enlarging our high school
library. Th Annual Book Drive came as an answer to this problem. That
this solution has been most successful is evidenced by the result of this
year's drive. The students have always displayed splendid cooperation in
this project and have worked with a will, this year was no exception.
The 1925 Book Drive exceeded all expectations. At the beginning of
the week Miss Davenport asked for fifteen hundred books, thinking that
quota one sufficiently diflicult to fill.
Although there was no prize offered for the winner, the four classes
competed for honors with the desire to enlarge the library as their only
incentive. As before, paper which, when sold, would provide money with
which to buy books was acceptable.
Besides this inter-class competition, Mr. Moon's salesmanship class
of approximately thirty students challenged the rest of the school to bring
as many books and as much paper as they would. Needless to say, this
challenge created quite a sensation. Both the challengers and the chal-
lenged went to Work to produce books and paper in vast quantities. In
the end, however, it was found that Mr. Moon's class remained undefeated.
Much credit is due to Mr. Moon and his class for both their challenge and
their extraordinary work during the drive.
When, at the end of the week the inter-class results were counted, it
was found that the Junior class had been victorious in the competition,
having brought 1993 books. The Seniors were second with 1421 books,
the Sophomores third with 463 books, and the Freshman last with 403
books, making a total of 4280 books. Besides the books, 10,921 pounds of
paper were contributed.
With the standard set for us by the Salesmanship class and the Jun-
iors, next year should bring forth even a better book drive than 1925.

Review of Drama
W HEN the curtain dropped on the last act of "Captain Applejackf'
the Seniors realized their dreams of four years. As Freshman
they read "Treasure Island," and were impressed by itg each year
they were reminded of it. Finally, in their last year the dream of pirates
became a thing of flesh and blood.
"Captain Applejack" was a difficult play in that the characters had
to play double roles. Russell Borchers took the leading role and was well
adapted to the part of the bored, well-bred Englishman and pirate Captain.
As the vamp and beautiful dancer of a foreign tribe Eleanor Richter played
the parts well. Eileen Cahill was the charmingly innocent and adoring
young ward and cabin boy. Her methodical aunt was portrayed by
Maxine Miller. Although it was a minor part, Margaret Knauff portrayed
the character of the English maid in a real stage manner. Roger Whee-
land as a Russian spy and leader of the pirate crew, Ted Klatt, Dutch
Trunck, and Bill Ascherg Kenneth Osterberg as a clever crook and sly
Chinese cookg Eleanor Engle as another clever and Witty crook, did ex-
ceedingly well. Harold Murdaugh was the ever faithful servant of Russell
Borchers. The play surpasses all expectations and much credit is given
to Mr. Jones and Miss Hancock, the directors.
The dramatic productions for this school year ended with "The Whole
Town's Talking," given by the Junior class. All the parts with no excep-
tion were portrayed in the very best manner. Jane Borgmier played the
part of a modern young lady whom her mother and father, Rebecca Hoy
and David McNary, wished to marry well, the latter picking Eugene Lattig
as the right and only man. By fate, in the wild scheme of David every-
thing turns out real instead of makebelieve as he had planned it. In this
plot Herbert Stimpert, Elizabeth Anderson, Elizabeth Weidenhoft, John
Schwartz, and Dick Hayner play the feature roles. Maryetta Gage, and
Mary Maurer, two of Jane's friends, aided by Irene Taylor, the maid,
manage to tell all the news and get the whole town talking. But as there
is always a silver lining to every dark cloud Jane and Eugene are brought
CHORUSES OF "PRINCESS BONNIE"
ll-IT-kg -A Q H-:fl .
HE blending of Spanish and American settings, the many varied and
effective song and dance numbers, and the excellent manner in which
the members of the cast carried their parts made thecomic opera,
Princess Bonnie, a real success.
Elizabeth Anderson, as the heroine of Princess Bonnie, had been
saved several years before the opening of the play from a shipwreck off
the coast of Maine by Theodore Neiman, as Captain Tarpaulin, keeper of
the lighthouse, and Harry Wurtzel, as Captain Surf. She grew up the
adopted daughter of Tarpaulin and his spinster sister, Auntie Crabbe,
played by Maxine Miller.
At the opening of the play Bonnie, then eighteen years old, was in
love with Charles Young, alias Roy Sterling. But Auntie Crabbe said
"never, never fall in love unless you find the right, right he." Eleanor
Kennison, as Kitty Clover, the village belle and intimate friend of Bonnie,
was adored by Devore Hitchner, Shrimps, the backwoods Jack-of-all-
trades, but Kitty declared "the name Shrimps would not look well on
One day a foreign count, David Rowen, came to the village asking
about Bonnie, but the villagers suspecting something gave him no infor-
mation. Soon Admiral Pomposo, Carl Becker, with Russell Borchers as
Salvador, his faithful bodyguard, came and demanded Bonnie whom he
claimed as Princess Bonnabellavita of Spain, his niece, and the betrothed
of the foreign count. In spite of the villagers, she, accompanied by Kitty,
was taken back to Spain. Upon their arrival the girls were welcomed by
Eleanor Engle, Donna Pomposo.
Roy, Shrimps, and Tarpaulin came too, and gained entrance to the
Admiral's palace, disguised as statues. They came to life when the girls
were left alone: In the pursuit of the live statues the Count left behind
his cloak and a letter telling of a plot against the king. When Admiral
Pomposo read the letter, it was doom's day for the Count.
Roy and Bonnie as well as Shrimps and Kitty were united.

O SING the lusty pirates as they threaten mutiny on board the
treasure laden pirate ship of Captain Applejack. We forget that this
is the uneventful and unadventurous March of 1925 and relive the
days of blood and thunder of the ,Seventeenth Century. With Captain
Kidd we ride the broad seas in search for treasure, capture beautiful
women from unprotected tribes, and find our blood run hot and cold as
the law of the pirates makes the strong man the master.
Ambrose Applejack, fRussell Borchersj, the bored Englishman, lives
on the lonely coast of Cornwall with only a faithful man-servant, Lush
fHarold Murdaughl, his methodical Aunt Agatha CMaXine Millerb, his
adoring young ward, Poppy Faire CEileen Cahillj, and her maid, Mar-
garet Knauff. Ambrose, longing for adventure and romance, advertises
for sale his castle-by-the-sea. The family is aghast at this longing and at
his selling the ancestral home. Into this disturbance comes adventure and
romance in the form of a search for buried treasure. In the treasure
hunt a beautiful Russian dancer, Anna Valeska CEleanor Richterj, a Rus-
sian spy, Borolsky CRoger Wheelandj, and two clever crooks, Mr. and
Mrs. Penguard iKenneth Osterberg and Eleanor Engleb participate. Am-
brose comes to the conclusion that adventure is right at home.
In a short but thrilling dream Ambrose is Captain Applejack of his
good pirate ship. Borolsky is the leader of the pirate crewg Mr. Penguard

Anna is a beautiful maiden captured by the pirates, and to her Captain

The scene changes. Ambrose awakes. Often through this last act
he forgets that he is the bored Englishman and becomes Captain Apple-
jack. The crooks with their pretense of an officer of the law, Dennis
fPaul Meyersb are foiled in the search for treasure. However, through
the hustling salesman, Johnny Jason, fLeslie Evansj, Ambrose learns that
there is a real treasure in his old home. Having gained the adventure
for which he sought, Ambrose begins to search for romance and finds it
at home in his love for Poppy Faire.

"The Whole Town's Talking", is a story of the best man wins. Mrs.
Simmons wants her daughter to marry well. Mr. Simmons has this same
idea, but man and wife differ exceedingly on the type of man desired.
Mr. Simmons and his partner, Chester Binney, plan a wild story about
Chester in order that the latter may win Ethel, the spoiled daughter.
When Ethel returns from college she brings Mr. Shields, a handsome
young man from Chicago and Paris. Her friends, Sally Otis, and lisping
Lila Wilson, hurry over to welcome her and to meet the young man. To
Shield's chagrin and disgust Mr. Simmons' plan works and Ethel falls in
love with Chester. But a false movie queen, Letty Lythe, whom they have
introduced into the plot turns out to be a real, and live vampire. She
causes quite a disturbance. Her fiance, Donald Swift, reads the forged
writing on the back of Lettys' picture and gives Chester a chance to fret.
Sadie Bloom is also mixed up in the "former love affairs" of Chester, and
she is aided by a taxi-driver. Annie, the maid, always appears at the
wrong time, is too slow, or says things which are not appropriate. Because
of all this influence, Ethel denounces Chester, and the "poor boy" is driven
almost to distraction. Finally, however, in a "iight in the dark," Chester
is the winner over Shields and Swift, and in spite of the consequences, he
N FEBRUARY 19, 1925, the Grey Dominoes made their first ap-
pearance in F. H. S. with three plays, a tragedy, a comedy, and a
"Makeshifts" was the story of two sisters who lived lonely lives. One
was a school teacher, the other stayed at home and took care of her in-
valid mother. In order to increase the family income they kept a boarder,
Mr. Thompson. They had few friends. Mr. 'Smythe called and each girl
in turn felt that he was about to propose to her, but he had really come to
tell them about his own engagement. At the end of the play the girls
were just as lonely as they were in the beginning. The sisters were por-
trayed by Beatrice Davis and Helen Ridgway, the boarder by David Mc-
Nary, and Mr. Smythe by Roger Wheeland. '
"The Stepmother" was all that a comedy should be. The stepmother,
Virginia Smith, an authoress, was much disturbed over an article that had
been written about her. Her very punctual secretary, Jane Borgmier,
tried to console her as well as her ardent lover, the doctor, John Daacon.
The stepson, Kenneth Osterberg, was in love with Mrs. Prout's secretary,
but could not come to see her because he had been driven out by his step-
mother. He did come one day, and then he told his stepmother he had
written the article because others had wanted him to, and he needed the
money. She forgave him and all was well.
In the third play Pierot was an individual who chased rainbows and
sought romance afar instead of looking for it round about him. He had
spent his life in searching for the girl of his dreams, but it was not until
the Maker of Dreams came in disguise to his and Pierette's lodging, dis-
covered Pierette's love for Pierot, and gave Pierot the bill of lading for
the girl of his dreams, that Pierot finally realized that romance had been
all the time within reach of his hand, and his playfellow, Pierette, was the
girl of his dreams. "The Maker of Dreams", an exceptionally diflicult
play, was splendidly given by Eleanor Richter as Pierette, Charles Young
as Pierot, and Ted Klatt as the Maker of Dreams.
"The Beggar's Dream," given before the assembly on the last day of
Better Speech week, was written and produced by Mr. Jones and his Ad-
vanced Public Speaking Class. The beggar, Mr. Bad English, was driven
out by the Students of Freeport High School. He lay down to rest and in
his dream he saw himself as Mr. Good English, the father of the wonder
of the ages, Perfect Speech, the character for which Diogenes had been
searching for thousands of years. Some very good acting was done by
Kenneth Osterberg in the double role of Mr. Bad English and Mr. Good
English. Evelyn Stephan as Mrs. Good English, Wilbert Martin as Per-
fect Speech, Russell Borchers with his lantern and airplane as Diogenes,
and Leslie Evans as the Student of Freeport High School made the play
the humorous and unusual production that it was.

HE Music Department of the Freeport High School is one which is of
much importance to the school, as it aids in many of the school
activities. Although many may realize that our department of music
is a great benefit to the school, probably very few appreciate its full value.
While the aid which it gives the school is enough to merit the time spent
on developing our musical organizations, there is still greater use for it.
It gives musical training to those who are musically inclined, giving to
those who have a talent for music a chance to exercise and develop their
talent in a manner which they might obtain in no other way. This educa-
tion is the primary object of our musical department, and it has proved
a most profitable one.
Nearly everyone appreciates good music, even though he cannot to
the fullest extent understand it, for, as Shakespeare says, "The man that
has no music in himself, nor is moved with concord of sweet sounds, is fit
for treason, stratagems and spoils." There should be music in the soul
of everyone 5 it takes us from our earthly toil and care, and gives us
greater love for our fellow men. The poet says:
"Who carry music in their heart
Through dusty lane and wrangling mart,
Ply their daily tasks with busier feet,
Because their secret souls a holier strain repeat."
Cla-X -l f---we
AND music is recognized by nations as essential to arousing interest
in national affairs, as is evidenced by the organization and popularity
of our United States Marine Band at Washington. If this is so in
National affairs, how much more important is it in High School affairs
that we have an efficient and popular band to inspire and help the High
School student body?
Our band has rendered an invaluable service to the school the past
year. It gave its services at all the Football and Basketball games which
were held here in Freeport, besides at numerous programs given in the
assembly to arouse pep in the student body for various activities. The
Band is especially striking in all out door appearances with their fine uni-
forms, as they are led by the drum major, John Gilbert.
It is a great task to assemble and drill over fifty students, so that
they make not only a fine appearance, but also render harmonious and
pleasing music. It has been a very great help to the band to have the
sixth hour every day for practice and has given it a chance to accomplish
a great deal more. Under the able direction of Mr. Karl Kubitz the band
has increased in numbers and advanced in the quality of music rendered.

HE Orchestra is an organization which is not quite so well known to
student body as the band, therefore it is probably not always ap-
preciated quite so much. The orchestra renders a service to the High
School which is entirely different from the band, and which cannot there-
fore be compared. This organization fills a necessary place in school ac-
tivities, for it furnishes the music which is essential to accompany plays
and operettas. Besides this, it has put on excellent programs in assem-
blies, purely for entertainment. The orchestra, like the band, has advanced
greatly in the past year, possibly more noticeably so, because longer inter-
vals generally elapse between opportunities to hear it. This year's
orchestra deserves much praise for the fine quality of music rendered,
under the direction of the instructor, Mr. Karl Kubitz, to whom belongs
a great deal of credit for making our orchestra what it is.

HE Treble Clef Club is one of the many musical organizations in our
High School, and is composed of forty active girls under the direction
of Miss Howe, the instructor of music in the High School. Its
chartered purpose is to develop a musical spirit in the High School and to
start a goal for the future growth of music.
There are two business meetings held each month. The girls in the
club participate in a musical program each meeting by singing, playing the
piano, or reading. Each girl in the club must do her part for the future
growth of music.
The club has many effective numbers to sing at entertainments and
has been very active during the year of nineteen-twenty-five as one may see
by the demand for its services. In the early part of the year, when the
question of a new High School was the main topic of the Freeport people,
the club sang at the Parent-Teachers Meeting. On November twenty-
sixth they were favored by an invitation to sing at the Oak Avenue Church
for the Nurses Graduation Exercises. From time to time the girls
sponsored programs in the assembly which have proved very successful.
December the eight they were made known more widely by singing at the
Odd Fellows Temple. Later there came invitations for them to sing at the
Lindo, the First Presbyterian Church, and the United Brethren Churchr
The Comic Opera, Princess Bonnie, which was given under the auspices
of the two musical clubs, the Treble Clef and the Glee Club, was the crown-
ing event of their success.
The Club had several artists of music entertain at different times in
order to get money to sponsor its banquet. One of the most noted among
these was the Chase Costume Concert Company, whose program consisted
of solos, duets, readings, and violin solos. It was a mixture of popular and
classical music cleverly arranged to suit any audience. The annual ban-
quet, which is the greatest event of the year, was sponsored with great
In June an opportunity was given to the Glee Club and Treble Clef
Club to display their greatest musical talent, for on Baccalaureate Sunday
these clubs have a most successful program.
Boy's Glee Club
NE of the four musical organizations of the High School is the Boys'
Glee Club. This Club is composed of about thirty-five boys who
possess trained voices. The purpose of the Club is to promote part
singing, namely,-first tenor, second tenor, first base and second base. The
Club is under the able direction of Miss Howe, instructor of music in the
High School. Miss Ruth Garman is accompanist. The Club is organized
and has its business meetings twice every month. The officers of the Club
are: Manager, James Richards, Assistant Manager, Carl Becker, Second
Assistant Manager, Eugene Lattigg Secretary and treasurer, Harry Wurt-
zelg Librarians, Ted Neiman and Richard Youngblood.
The Glee Club has given programs in the assembly and in other places.
The Glee Club and the Girls' Treble Clef Club put on the musical comedy,
Princess Bonnie, on December eleventh and twelfth. This play pleased
two large audiences on the nights that it was presented. The two Clubs,
combined in a chorus of eighty voices, sang in many of the churches of
Freeport on diferent occasions. The main performance was given at
Baccalaureate services. At this time a highly perfected program was
presented. The two Clubs, aside from their beautiful singing, made a very
pretty picture in the church on that night. The girls wore white dresses
while the boys wore dark suits. The most delightful number was the Re-
cessional, sung by the chorus as they marched up the aisle to the rear of
By collecting dues every week from the members of the two clubs,
money was raised for our annual banquet. After the banquet was served,
a very fine program was given. The banquet hall was decorated very ar-
tistically by the capable decorating committee and this helped very much
to make it one of the best banquets ever put on by the two clubs. After
the banquet a very enjoyable evening was spent at dancing.
The Boys' Glee Club always supported all the school activities and
whenever called upon to sing, they responded with cheerfulness. Of course,
there are in the Club many Seniors who will be graduated. Their places,
however, will be filled by Freshmen who have been able to pass the vocal
test which one must pass to become a member of the Club.
It is hoped by all the members of this year's Club, that the number
next year will be increased to at least seventy-five boys so that the High
School can feel even more proud of its Boys' Glee Club.

Sophomore Oratorical Contest
NUSUAL initiative on the part of the Sophomores was displayed
in the Sophomore Oratorical Contest of 1925. The contest was held
on the afternoon of May thirteenth. Ten cents admission fee was
charged, and all those who bought a ticket were excused from classes.
Needless to say, the assembly was filled.
An exceptional amount of interest in the contest was displayed this
year. Because there was so much talent to choose from, more contestants
were chosen than is usual.
The judges, Mrs. Paul Haight, Reverend Edward Burgi, and Mr. Stan-
ley Vance, were placed in an exceedingly diiiicult position when it came to
choosing the winners. First place was awarded to Wilbert Seidel, for the
boys, and to Jane Wilson, for the girls. Second place was won by Dale
Fair and Marian Ridgway.
The program was as follows: :

Extemporaneous Speaking Contest
HE extemporaneous speaking contest was held in connection with
Good Speech Week. Previous to the final contest, a contest had been
held in each of the English classes and the students had voted to de-
cide who should represent their class. These winners from all the English
classes took part in another contest at which the judges selected four stu-
dents to represent the four classes in High School. The students selected
were: William Hildebrandt, William Lambert, Mary Maurer, and John
The final contest was held on Friday, December 19, at the last as-
sembly of Good Speech Week. The contestants had been given their sub-
jects forty-five minutes before they appeared on the platform. David

William Hillebrandt, the representative of the Freshman Class. He spoke
on the value of outside activities to a High School student. He brought
out the pointthat business takes a man's physical and mental strength,
therefore, athletics, the most common form of outside activity, are in-
valuable to a student, as they train his body for the big task ahead of him
when he gets out into the world.
John Daacon, the Senior representative, next spoke on the value of a
college education. He said, in part: "In order to be a success in life, a
person must be outstanding. N o one is outstanding without an education.
"A college education is valuable for three reasons: It leads to spirit-
ual development, social development, and professional development. By
spiritual development, I mean that college broadens one's outlook on
the world. It gives one a wider viewpoint, a better knowledge of
people and their characteristics. Social development is furthered by a
college education, because in college activities one comes in contact with
many people and this contact gives one that much needed characteristic
in the world today-poise. By professional development, I mean that no
matter what business one is taking up, a college education gives important
characteristics which are so often necessary to sucess in the professional
The third speaker in the contest was Mary Maurer, the Junior. She
compared the people of the world to a freight train. The engine she com-
pared to the well educated people of the world, the box cars to the people
who are either careless or who have not had the chance to became well-
William Lambert, a Sophomore, was the last speaker on the program.
He spoke on the characteristics of a good High School student. An agree-
able spirit and an accomodating disposition were the two characteristics
that he stressed.
Mr. Fulwider then announced the decision of the judges, Mr. Raines,
Mr. Collins, and Mr. Furst. The judges gave first place to John Daacon,
the Senior, and second to Mary Maurer, the Junior. Mr. Fulwider closed
the contest by awarding the prizes to the winners.
NATIONAL ORATORICAL CONTEST
The preliminary contest for the National Oratorical Contest to de-
termine who should represent Freeport in the sectional contest at Genoa,
Illinois, was held April third. There were only two entries in the contest,
Kenneth Osterberg and John Daacon, whose subjects were respectively,
"The Constitution" and "Madison and the Constitution." The judges
selected Kenneth Osterberg, and on April thirteeth he went to Genoa to
take part in the sectional contest there. He won first place at this contest
by a unanimous decision of the judges. On April twentieth he spoke in
the State contest at LaSalle. This contest included representatives from
almost the entire State. Here Kenneth showed his real merit by taking
second place, while competing against some of the best High School orators
of the State. Much credit is due Kenneth for all the work he put forth in
upholding the honor of Freeport High School in oratory.
A well rounded school life is made up of a number of items. Not the
least of these are the Weekly Polaris and the Annual Polaris.
It is only necessary to ask a Junior or Senior who can recall year be-
fore last when we had no Weekly Polaris to learn what a large gap the
Weekly Polaris has filled since its advent in F. H. S. last year.

to be indulgent for their errors, and to realize that they have at all times
put forth their best efforts.

The Weekly Polaris
HE STUDENTS of the Freeport High School continued the publica-
tion of the Weekly Polaris throughout the school year beginning in
the Fall of 1924. As a result of the initiative of three Seniors in the
class of 1924: Marvin Burt, William Steffen, and Howard Bennethum, the
publication of the Polaris was resumed in the Fall of 1923 after a lapse of
The original staff, consisting of Seniors, Juniors, and Sophomores,
was chosen by Mr. Fulwider. During the first semester Miss Bryant and
Miss Cravens, the faculty advisors, worked incessently to help the staff
put out the best paper possible. At this time, Mr. Jones kindly consented
to correct the athletic news. The second semester a sixth hour journalism
class under Miss Bryant was organized to systematize the work. Un-
fortunately, complications in schedules made it impossible for live staff
members to sign up for the class. They are Gertrude Demeter, Foy Mat-
ter, Devore Hitchner, and Edwin Hall. Such a class made it possible for
students who had a special interest in news writing to take part in publish-
ing our school paper. The people in this class are: Maurice McClanathan,
Eleanor Kennison, Mary Ellen Ash, Robert Prescott, William Stover and
Eugene Lattig. Edward Credicott was added to the business staff at the
first of the second semester.
The surprisingly large expenses of the paper were met only after sev-
eral different ways to raise money were put to trial. The enlargement and
addition of a fifth column brought the printing cost up to fifty-six dollars
and fifty cents an issue. Advertisements netted over seven hundred dol-
lars, leaving over eight hundred dollars to be met by subscriptions and any
other source of income. One of the most successful enterprises was from
the advertisements in the eight page basketball tournament programs
put out by the business staff of the Weekly. Occasionally the proceeds
from matinees added a small amount to the deflated treasury. All through
the year the business staff under Mr. Braden worked against odds to keep
the organization on a firm financial footing.
Perhaps the most popular issues among the student body were the
Rockford basketball special and the April Fool number. The size of the
Polaris was no doubt too large in proportion to the school but throughout
its publication the staff labored earnestly to give the students a represent-
ative paper of interest and credit to the school.

Annual Polaris Staff
MOST sucessful school year has been completed, not only in general
work, but in all special activities. The work which has been ac-
complished is but an addition to the splendid record already made
by our school throughout many years. It has been our aim to set forth in
this book the history of this year's events in such a manner that the book
will hold its readers' interest at all times in the future.
Because this book is one of the truly comprehensive things that the
Senior class does, it is our hope that it will always be a source of enjoy-
ment to them, and that underclassmen will consider the Annual of 1925
their book also.
The editors wish to thank every one who has had any part whatsoever
in the publication of this book, for their assistance. We are especially
grateful to those merchants who, by their support in advertising, have
made the Annual Polaris of 1925 a reality.

The New High School
HE FIRST High School course offered in Freeport was in 1852. The Il
school was discontinued in 1860, however, when the principal and the 1
older boys went to war. After the war the school was reorganized. I
Its enrollment from then on increased steadily, until in 1890 there were
over a hundred students. In 1903 there were three hundred iive students 1,
and fifty-two graduates. In 1910 the enrollment was four hundred fifty,
in 1920 there were over eight hundred students, and 1922 there were over
nine hundred students. In 1924 one hundred and fifty students were
graduated. This was the largest class ever graduated from the school. QE

schools. Recently it was found that it is on the highest accredited list of ,
schools in the United States. '
The present High School building has long since been crowded by its U
ever increasing enrollment. Originally built for four hundred students, I,
it has been filled to more than twice its capacity for the past five years. ,

On April 6, 1925, was realized Freeport's long cherished hope for a ll
new High School, for on that day Mr. John W. Henney, Sr., former Presi- if

Senior Class Poem
In memory I can see an impulsive group,
So eager for paths which were new.
We were tender in years and timid in heart,
But with purpose steadfast and true.
The ladder looked high which we started to
Each step was a goal to be gained,
But with hope undaunted, we reached it and
A record by failure unstained.
The victory gained by this first year of toil
Caused courage to spring up anew.
We tackled this ladder of learning again,
And vanquished the foes from our view.
Then again and again we climbed up the
For the goal we ceased not to strive,
'Till at last on the top of its 'lustrious peak,
Stands this grand class of twenty-five.
Our joy seems complete, for a moment we
While the glorious future we view,
But a form in the distance, beckons and
"Lifes duties are waiting for you."
With faltering footsteps and quavering
We stand on the threshold of lifeg '
Reluctant to pick up the burden we've met,
Unwilling to share in the strife.
Be hushed, thou faint spirit! for wisdom
When the faint and feeble deplore,
Be strong as the rock of the ocean that
A thousand wild Waves on the shore!
Through perils of chance, and the scowl of
May our front stand unaltered, elateg
Brood not on the scenes left forever behind,
Be brave and thus conquer our fate.
Dear High School, our High School, though
now we depart,
In dreams, we'll revisit this scene
To freshen our memories with joys which
In dreams, we'll be children again.
At life's very end we'11 review our success,
For failure can't come to the true.
1 We know who has started our footsteps
And give all the credit to you.
Senior Class History
N YEARS to come, how often will the mem-
bers of the class of '25 look back to the
happy and successful days spent in Freeport
High School. 'Since all of the details are the
best remembered and need no words to recall
them, we will confine ourselves to a general
outline of the achievements of our class.
In our first year, as is quite usual, we were
just shy, awkward, self-conscious children, ab-
sorbed in adjusting ourselves to our new sur-
roundings and yet giving our aid wherever we
Our Sophomore year brought out our tal-
Bernice Weller ents. We were well represented in football,
basketball, and track, and our Sophomore Ora-
torical Contest was one of the best ever held in Freeport High School.
As Juniors we were even more astonishing. Some of our men became
mainstays on the athletic teams and others on the debating teams. The
Junior play, Green Stockings, revealed unusual talent in members of the
class, while other treasures were discovered during the preparation for the
However, our greatest success and the best use of our talent is dis-
played in this, our Senior year. Athletics have been carried to the highest
point of achievement in the winning of the championships. Great honors
have been gained in dramatics, as represented by the presentation of the
play Captain Applejack, and the operetta, Princess Bonnie, in which a
large number of the members of our class took part.
Nor have we neglected the scholastic side of school life. A lengthy
list of Senior names graces the honor roll each month and nineteen of the
members of the class have been elected to the National Honor Society.
The Weekly Polaris has been continued and improved under the effi-
cient direction of members of the class, aided by the under classmen. The
quality, beauty, and worth of this twenty first volume of the Annual
Polaris, published by the class of '25 with the aid of Miss Hancock and
Mr. Jackson, is testified by all who read it.
All in all, our years here have been the happiest, the busiest, and the
most successful of our lives. We go on, feeling that we have done our best.
Who can do more? A
E. ---W -- ,,.. f -Wm e,., ,,m.,nwW,A M -mm--A-'Hum up vb
' A FTER four years of study and of success-
ful participation in various activities, an- li
other graduating class has come to the I
place where it must call upon its training and I f
resources to face the responsibilities of life.
We shall be perhaps the last class to leave
the old school. We cannot but be proud that '
future classes will have a new and finer en- 'Q
vironment, yet the old room and corners that II
may appear worn and ragged to the stranger
have grown dear to us, for into them, from the I
time we were freshmen, we put all our hopes.
- - Our class during four years has been very I ,
John Daacon successful. To what do we owe our success? II
Senior Ofatof To unity and that indefinable something which
men call spirit. Without unity we could not stand and without spirit, to if
stand would mean nothing. I
The Wonderful record made in athletics by our school is a good example Q
of these two qualities. Without team Work which, after all, is unity, our V
men could not have been victorious, and without fight and grit, and deter- .
mination, which at their Hnest make up the spirit, they would have been
failures. They clearly illustrate the value of these two positive qualities.
There is a third quality which has helped us through the years, the
duty of the individual to himself. A man cannot be loyal to school and to A
his neighbor unless he is true to himself. With this quality members of w
our class have gained individual honors which have rebounded to the ' II
glory of the school. I
But the records of today may be the averages of tomorrow, so, with
a last look back, with mingled feelings of happiness and regret, We must
go on to test in a larger world the qualities cherished here.
There we shall meet new challenges, for we, the students of today,
must become the leaders of tomorrow. Responsibility will come to each
of us, to some in larger measure, to others in less. We must accept the
duties, nay more, we must seek them out with a whole hearted seriousness.
Unquestionably, our class has learned the value of unity, of spirit and
of individual eiorts. If our work in high school has succeeded, our pride I
in our achievements has not made us arrogant, but humble. If now, at I
parting, we can look on the coming and going of men, their crimes, their p
wars, their ambitions, their ideals, with clearer, steadier eyes, with greater
patience, then we may be proud of our achievements, and dedicate our-
selves in all humility to a larger usefulness.

Senior Mantle Speech
LL through the years of our school life
our energies have been directed toward
our high school graduation. For four
years we have looked upon this day as the cul-
mination of our ambition, the realization of our
ideals. To this end we have studied, worked,
planned, and dreamed. Now the time is almost
here-only a few more hours and we shall have
in our own hands that little roll of paperwhich
says such a little but means so much. How much
does it really mean? It is according to the work
we have done and the way in which we have
done it. If our work has been well done, our
graduation is an hour of unalloyed triumph, if
our work has been slighted, if we have reached
the summit by false methods, our graduation
must naturally be tinged with some regret for
But is our battle won? Now that we are so near the goal of our
Youth's ambition, we find that we are not nearly to the summit-we are
only ready to step into a larger, fuller life. We have not finished our
course, we are only ready to begin a new one. As we begin this new course
we must look into the future and see a new goal, because, "Work without
a definite aim is energy utterly wasted." How may we have' one outstand-
ing goal? Yes, it is true our interests are varied, but each of us must
bear in mind one great truth. We are citizens of a great country and our
outstanding aim should be to become loyal, ambitious, true-hearted citi-
zens. Let us, as we graduate, go forth with the determination of proving
to the world that the high schools are the best mills in the world for turn-
ing out individuals who are worth While. Let us make loyalty our con-
trolling spirt, and in being loyal to ourselves, to our class, to our country,
and to the world, we shall become the most eflicient of American citizens.
Let us face the future with courage, with resolution, and with high minded
integrity. Let us show not only America, but the world, that we are the
stuH of which the best citizens and true patriots are made.
But before we step into the great open tomorrow we should not forget
the Junior Class of 1925. We wish to place upon your shoulders our re-
sponsibility within the halls of old Freeport High. For you as individuals
and as a class, we have much respect. For success in your Senior year you
have our very good wish-our faith. You have done well the tasks set
before you. Your hearty cooperation, and your good natured enthusiasm
have been an inspiration to our school. You, too, shall soon reach the
heighth of your youth's ambition, so as we place upon your shoulders our
mantle, may we say:
Senior Mantle Speaker
Pause not, then-nor falter,
For Fate is in your hand,
To where your feet would stand,
The rocks may be rough and rugged,
But victory is sublime,
Step bravely, boldly forward,
And climb, and climb, and climb!
p f4j "g1
Junior Mantle Speech
' HROUGHOUT the past three years of our
school life our definite aim has also been
on our graduation. One year remains in
which we may better ourselves and our school
by following the good examples set for us by
the class ahead.
Certainly we can profit by following in
your footsteps, Senior Class of Nineteen Hun-
dred and Twenty-Five. You have been suc-
cessful in all your undertakings. Truly you
have left a path strewn with laurels of success
in every branch of your High School life.
We trust, Seniors, that you will be as
loyal to your community and to your country as
you have been to your school. America needs
your help and your co-operation to maintain its high place as the greatest
country in the world as much as did Freeport High .School need you to up-
hold its good name as an institution of learning.
Junior Mantle Speaker
Now that you are to graduate into the world of business and higher
schooling we hope that you will not forget that you are still a part of your
High School and that you will take an active interest in its affairs.
We, the Juniors, will strive to carry on your work and improve upon
it as the scientist labors to perfect that which is nearly perfect. Our class
holds no class as an ideal. We do not work toward that end. Our efforts
must be put forth to make our class not that which strives for the ideal,
but the ideal itself.
We have done well our tasks in the past, but we shall strive to do
them even better through our Senior year. Our class as a whole feels the
necessity of working together to accomplish those things which will make
our graduation the completion of successful work. We realize that work-
ing as a unit will help us to master every responsibility set before us even
as did the first thirteen States of this great country.
To be true patriots to our country we must be true patriots to our-
selves. We must endeavor this last year of our school life to make our-
selves Worth while so that we may serve our country by use of the knowl-
edge that we shall gain. We must not live merely to better ourselves. We
must live to improve ourselves so that we can better the things around us.
That is true patriotism.
