Y.- ,,-..,.-.,,.-...Til fl 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 passed. gi 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 ' around. aj 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.

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. Vera Johnson 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 second. We hereby resolve to show old F. H. S. that we are the peppiest and most brilliant class that has ever gone out of its door. 60 X Sf ff"- rvalymvn Freshman A Class Officers Lee Madden Donald Dick Charles McCoo1 President Vice President Secretary and Treasurer Freshman B Class Officers James Rought Marguerite Broughton Alma Rahn President Vice President Secretary and Treasurer 61 f 5 t--W N H A 'ER ff' -51,-' 1 ' "' ""' ' 5' V f ,I J 5 'Qifiwlwl-5--'wma , 'L mmf!" 1 x i 1 l 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 fray. 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. I I 1 r 1 1 l . -i "" 'Wm " 62 ' r- 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 I I 1 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, Treasurer. I We were represented on the honor roll each time by a number of students. I This is only the first part of our life in Freeport High School.

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. ' Donald McLean 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. Paul Jones COACHES Glenn Holmes 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 his Worth. Paul Moon 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. 69 Heavyweight Football Quinter Bere John Bentley Donald Botdorf John Coughlin John Cross Collin Diefenthaler Karl Fuss LaVerne Grell Milo Griffin Theodore Heinan Fred Held Lee Jones Theodore Klatt Orlo Krell Ellwood Madden Harold Neidigh Forrest Paul James Pollock Burton Rhode Alfred Rund Ralph Ruthe Fred Steffen Edwin Trunck Phillip Ward . in T' wr .

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- iastic fans. 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.

As a quarter- back he had no peer. Heavyweight Football Ralph Ruthe, Tackle Ralph was another of our linemen who could drop a man and stop the line. He filled a good sized hole and did it well. Burton Rhode, End "Sinkers" was the sub for the wing and he played all the time he was in. His battle cry of "Aw-wow!" was ever heard. Frederick Steffen, Quarterback A "Fritz" as an alternate for Jay was a heady little worker. He knew his men and he knew the holes, this helped exceedingly.

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. J A an 77 Lightweight Football Rodney Smith, Captain-Tackle Rod was a wonderful player. He had a little hard luck with his leg but when he played he played. Donald Blackiston, I-Ialfback "Blackie" was a backfield player of great renown and was always on deck to do his duty to the team.

Maurice McClanathan, End "Pete" at end was a streak of greased lightning. He outfought all of his oppo- nents and did some wonder- ful work on the team. Robert Rowley, End Bob was another of the speedy boys on the line. He played a consistent game and was always in the mix- ups. Herbert Stirnpert, Tackle Herbie was rather a whirl- wind when he got in action. Many an opponent can vouch for this. Edward Strohm, Center "Pete" was the best little snap-back artist on the Orient. He was a little "weight dangerous." Good things are done up in small bundles. 79 Jr Lightweight Football Edwin Trunek, Backlald "Dutch" was a backlield utility man: he 'played quarter in either half with great ease.

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 country. Now that Freeport has such a wonderful team let us hope that the tiang iiidthe following year will have the success of the team that dedicated t e e . 81 Heavyweight Basketball Forrest Paul Burton Rhode Harold Perry Orlo Krell Harold Neidigh Freeport .....

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 Champs. , 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. ff - 4. 83 " ,etilxxx J----l-:A iQ...fQa1fQ,glaeginfiiiifgesefizsf-5 M-fl Heavyweight Basketball Russell Goodrich, Guard "Mit" was the archer man for the squad this year. He always stopped the other man and helped the team out of some tough holes. Herbert Keith, Guard Herbie played basketball like he played football, all the time fighting hard. He was the best floor guard in the conference. A Harold Neidigh, Guard-Captain-elect Doc had a little misfortune in a had shoulder left from football but when he was in the game he was "there." Forrest Paul, Center-Captain Bunny, the long legged pivot man, was a whiz. He was a floor man and a tight de- fensive player. James Pollock, Forward Jay should always be men- tioned with Stewart. They were the cleverest pair of forwards in the conference. William Stewart. Forward Babe coupled with Jay was the scoring machine of the team. Always there for a basket at all times. 84 2-e f--M-5 Lightweight Basketball 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 the moment. This team also had the honor of putting the Rabs under the sod twice during the season and a third time they helped in daring them in the tournament. The first two times, in the non-conference and the conference games, they showed the Rockford aggregation that they didn't have a chance. 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.

W '1 90 Athletic Council Mr. Cross 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. 91 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.

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 I I I I I I I I I I 95 I if Society---Continued k 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 certainly was. 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' 1 W H., - Y .-r- ..- 'I 96 1, v aim. f i . ,, H.. lub 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." 97 Senior Hi-Y Guy Ware Carl Becker Club Advisor P11-2Sider1'C OFFICERS President . . . . .

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."

M. C. A. and organized the Junior Hi-Y Club for the year 1924-25. Election of officers was held and the results were: A 1 President, Robert Rowley, Vice President, Maurice Maddeng Secre- tary, Arthur Steffeng Treasurer, Carl Bury, Advisor and Director, Guy Ware. 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.

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 amusing. 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 places. 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. 103 v---'-f-- - ----W -AQ-1----.---- --v-1...----V V YY. . ....

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 County Fair. l . ' .-Yi 'W I' Y' 'EQQ ' 'efv' 'Y' W " ' I A The work of the advisors, Miss Nodine and Miss Cravens, and of thei otiicers, Beryl Bennethum, president, Alice J ephson, vice-president, Lugene Perry, secretary, and Marion Ridgway, treasurer, was responsible for much of the success of the year. The committee chairmen, Lucille Pack, Phyllis Wagner, Alice Jephson, Margaret Evans, and Norma Henson, and their committee members have also been of much assistance. A The officers for next year, Dorothy Sandring, president, Maxine Dry, vice-president, Ina Witte, secretary and Jane Hayes, treasurer, are ex- tremely competent ones, and prospects for another successful year seem assured. 105 1 A 1 Pep Club President .

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. 107 Latin Club Club Advisor President Erva Moody David McNary OFFICERS President . . . David McNary Vice President . .

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. 1'l.... ..-VM -.,.. . ,.,,,. mmm-, -..H r...,,, , , , -jgnv-,MA , -- www- 5 109 Le Cercle Francais Marika Constantine Esther Hall Club Advisor President OFFICERS President . . . .

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 if l P! 4 2 E I 1. -- 1, i 111 flwwe I we g hw. --' ' 1' 'f . , --.Q 1 El Circulo Castellano Marika Constantine Gerald Sheridan Club Advisor President OFFICERS President . . .

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, Collin Diefenthaler. 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- joyable one. 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 faculty advisor. 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 the club.

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 -'nw g i , I i 5 5 l 3 1 1 i sl 'K il , I , I w li l I 5 I E Q i l 1 r V 1 i ki H if lf El I: C 115 "il N "M W .xii ff - y ,A .. rms A-,,,,,. s " Q fr' 'jf L fa. lg if 5 . .i,,,,,,.r LM-- 3 , ,N . ff f -s---N---- ,ff "1'3.,N,,,,,x X-,.

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 Economics Club. 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. 117 .ww ..-v............IJ Grey Dominoes Paul Jones Club Advisor Kenneth Osterberg President OFFICERS President . . .

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 Johnston. 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 assembly. 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.

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 pleasure. The membership of the organization is limited to Senior girls having an average of eighty-five in all subjects. The officers are as follows: President, Dorothy Clark, Vice President, 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, Miss White. 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. - fi 41 1211 Honor Society Louis Mensenkamp Vernon Fry Society Advisor President OFFICERS President . . . .

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. Cross. 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 members. 123 W r r A' Q 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 curiosity. 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. -...... 61-9 ,-- - ..,, ,.-.,,,.--,,,.r,,-., ., ,.,, ---,-.,. 1--.-.,-...,,,.........,......aL.1J 124 I ' ix. 4, if Stage, 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 together. 125 Q Bonnwn CC lfl UPI CHORUSES OF "PRINCESS BONNIE" utchison Willi th H eah L E N Elizabe eI'S lizabeth Mey m Redican E To ngblood You Laible 'E Q0 -GE Uo EE mi 'csv Q72 -Q23 .25 M02 QE EE No.: v-U .M gs: -5 pr..- M Sw 4-pf Ov: as DU Z GJ ... as Cl .-. as .-5 -O-7 L11 5 5 O :- :- C5 5 :- o Q 5 N D .- .-1 1-4 5 U2 V2 0 5-4 O r-4 O 5a .-CI -a-1 C 5. :- 5 CCI U11 s- N O sf o U11 bi rs E4 cv O C cu s- o .- C24 cu .M G9 CI -.- G9 4-1 U2 rn be 'U N .-1 QU 5 as H22 cv -I-7 U1 L. 5 .5 4-7 :- 42' 5-4 GJ c an cd 3 .-C1 O E3 as DQ 'c F-4 mi 5 ..- 'U 5-4 D. :- s- as Q-4 'U .-1 O 5-4 LB c O VI s: .c O vw as E 5-4 Q9 I :- ua 4-7 .-5 .2 D5 :- o 5 F5 sv -4 F11 3 as :- FQ U2 cu E Wm L-P1 be Q9 5 GJ CD Q4 ba 936302 CIUQE4 E had L4 O .-c GJ S-4 5 Q 5 :- CYS U11 O u E m N Es: U1 ev o -C1 'c CD FQ .M ON .-C1 mai Burnett ginia Vir +2 4- GI .-1 M E cv 'U O 5-4 .-4 CS E 3 4-E: 5-4 -Si: F-CD as 'U P' Edna Ve y Younglo te ia Mar .-4 GJ Z' cv .-CI o 4-7 ..- E as o O V2 o Od f- as ..- cu E cv ..- v5 5 N 5 O ..- s- N 2 5 as E it o 5 0 E2 Qfrlnd 3-1 GJ 4.1 CD E on 5 40 5-4 GJ CU cd .-CI +- C O -1 va C! .11 O P1 .-C! -A-v CJ S-4 cd ..- 5 -I its 5 S c 2 as E .Q mg N ..- 'CS ca .-.

"Princess Bonnie" 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 wedding cards." 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. CAST OF CHARACTERS Captain Surf ............ .

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 is the sly Chinese cookg Poppy is the faithful, intimidated cabin boyg Anna is a beautiful maiden captured by the pirates, and to her Captain Applejack makes love. Three more pirates, Ted Klatt, Dutch Trunck, and Bill Ascher, make the crew complete. In an attempt at mutiny in order to secure Applejack's treasure, they are overcome by the Captain himself. 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. 128 "The Whole ToWn's Talking" THE CAST Henry Simmons, a manufacturer .... .

D ick Hayner "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 wins Ethel. 129 f- Minor Dramatics 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 fantasy. "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. t h e Il' ,il y l uf sim AM 7 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." 131,...4e Band Personnel Cla-X -l f---we The Band 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. Director ..... Karl H. Kubitz Student Manager . . Wilbert A.

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.

Librarian 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 success. 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. 135 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 the church. 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. 136 . 2355 i,: L Y " W W 1 I X5 ' - Wi .

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: : Citizenship ....... .

Alice Jepson The Boy . . . . Jane Wilson Mary Elizabeth . . Marian Ridgway Within the Law .......... . Delyte Klatt Vocal, Solo ........... James Richards Chairman-Kenneth Kerlin 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 Daacon. 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 Burrell, who acted as chairman, introduced the Hrst speaker, who was 137 . -,2fN'1.q"AT3f 'i ' "1 TN ffJ""'L:s i . ' so " "'A o ,X I f fm ,Hgh .

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 world." 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- educated. 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. 138 MIIMMIHMIISD lg Fifi' , uhlivediun 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.

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 several years. 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. V ' 'I 141 Q-mv if The Annual Polaris Bernard Rought Virginia Smith Joseph Jackson Editor Editor Faculty Advisor 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 1 P Q I I 1 1 I v I 4 4 .l 22 in r E 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 1 .Since 1906 Freeport High School has been on the accredited list of schools. Recently it was found that it is on the highest accredited list of , schools in the United States. ' I I 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. , , 0 l lf On April 6, 1925, was realized Freeport's long cherished hope for a ll new High School, for on that day Mr. John W.

We were tender in years and timid in heart, But with purpose steadfast and true. The ladder looked high which we started to mount, Each step was a goal to be gained, But with hope undaunted, we reached it and bore 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 steps, 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. I Our joy seems complete, for a moment we pause While the glorious future we view, But a form in the distance, beckons and calls, "Lifes duties are waiting for you." With faltering footsteps and quavering heart, ' 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 condemns When the faint and feeble deplore, Be strong as the rock of the ocean that stems ' A thousand wild Waves on the shore! Through perils of chance, and the scowl of disdain, 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 have passed, 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 aright, And give all the credit to you. 'I 14 7 . 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 could. I 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. Senior Historian 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 Junior Carnival. 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 148 f- . I Senior Oration ' 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 misdirected energy. 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: Gladys Klein Senior Mantle Speaker Pause not, then-nor falter, For Fate is in your hand, Climb ever-onward-upward, 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! 150 5 ..l ,mjln 'U r p f4j "g1 1 I I 1 I I I I I I 1 I I I I I I I I I 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. Eugene Lattig 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. i I I I 1 I I 1 I I I 1 1 I I I I I 151 ,.-Q livlv rupv Enter Madam Anita and Prof. Howzat. Prof. Howzat: You see here, Madam, is my studio. Here I watch the stars, and interpret their messages to the earth. Madam Anita: You watch the stars? But how do you see them? Prof. H.: Through these rods, Madam. These are called telescopes. Madam A.: And you can read the stars, and tell people's fortunes by what the stars say? Prof. A.: Yes, Madam, all of that. Madam A.: I wonder-Can you tell what these people are doing? They are old class-mates of mine, and I have often thought of them. Can you? Prof. H.: Surely, Madam, any one you wish. All you need to do is tell me their names and I shall find their stars, and they shall reveal all. Madam A.: Oh! I'm so gladg now I shall know. Prof. A.: Only mention the name, Madam, and I shall search the heavens for the prophecy. Madam A.: Oh, Yes! Here's a list of them.
