OUR BOARD or EDUCATION
For a long time our new high school was iust a vision of the imagination, but
to-day it is a reality. The beautiful, spacious school, which we hoped and longed for,
is almost completed. To whom do we owe this accomplishment? XVe owe it to all
who have labored so loyally to make this dream of ours a reality.
Foremost among these people are the members of the Freeport Board ofEducation.
These men have unselfishly given of their time and energy in order that we might
have the educational advantages which the new building will afford. They have
cooperated with our principal, Mr. L. A. Fulwider, on every occasion, with this as
their primary aim, proving themselves real friends of the school.
We wish to express our appreciation in a special manner for their having made
it possible to have our athletic held and splendid gymnasium already completed.
We feel that we can never fully repay them for the time which they have so willingly
spent for us, especially for the completion of these two objects. Indirectly, we owe
much of the credit to the members of the board of education for the prominent place
Freeport has attained in athletics. The splendidly equipped athletic field inspired
our football team to earn the highest honor possible,-that of claiming the national
championship. In addition, the possession of such a stadium gave to the rest of the
students more of a desire really to support the team and win the games. When we
attended games in other cities and saw their athletic fields, we appreciated our own
field more than ever.
Words cannot adequately express our appreciation of the new gymnasium.
This, likewise, gave the team an added incentive to uphold the standard of Freeport
High. The opening year of the gymnasium was littingly celebrated by Freeport's
winning the state championship in basket ball. The pep and vim which the acquisi-
tion of our new gymnasium instilled in us, as students, were remarkable.
As this school building nears Completion, it seems more wonderful than ever
that our vision is at last an actual realization. lt is, therefore, to the board of educa-
tion that we express our sincere appreciation and gratitude.

PRINCIPAL FULWIDER MRS. KIDD Miss. REITZELL MR. Cnoss
Probably the greatest single figure in the history of Freeport High School is
now in charge of the administration of the institution. Principal L. A. Fulwider,
who is a man of vision, high ideals, and executive ability, has been a consistent and
inspiring leader, and the high ranking which the school has continued to hold all
over the United States is in no small way directly owing to his ability to put into
force his ideals. Workirlg under the disadvantages resulting necessarily from the
lack of accommodations for the rapidly growing school, he has made Freeport High
School a real educational force.
Given a capable, far-seeing leader, there needs to be only loyal and able support
of his leadership, to produce the best results. Mr. Fulwider has been peculiarly
fortunate in this respect, since his co-administrative heads, including Miss Allie M.
Reitzell, assistant principal, Mrs. L. L. Kidd, secretary to the principal, and Mr.
Charles H. Cross, financial manager of the school activities, each combine the quali-
ties of loyalty, initiative, and good judgment.
Miss Reitzell's record of devotion to school interests is a splendid and a valuable
one, and it has been her chief ambition to add to that record service in the new
building. Mrs. Kidd, too, has been unselfish of her time and services, giving of them
generously, whether the occasion was that of heading a drive for pennants to decorate
the new gymnasium, or helping to systematize the school records. Together, she
and Miss Reitzell worked out a new and much improved recording system, which
was put into effect this year.
On Mr. Cross's capable shoulders have rested the financial advisorship of all
the school enterprises, for a number of years, and, as proof of his careful supervision,
we see the successful results of all these undertakings. He has handled the finances
of all athletic affairs-including the district tournament. Managers of the class
plays, the operetta, the Annual Polaris, and the band concert are in his debt for
sound, helpful advice and direction.
These four faculty administrators have been assisted by a number of dependable
students, who have served in the capacity of 0lTlCC girls. The office girls included
Beryl Bennethum, Isabel Penticod, Dorothy Harroun, Velma Wachlin, Ruth Fosha,
Elizabeth Hadley, Madgalen Ilgen, Margaret Fuss, Ruth Seidel, Elizabeth Anderson,
and Leona Nesbit.

T SENIOR HISTORY
PON leaving the friendly doors of dear
old Freeport High School, the class of
197.6 takes with it its most valued
possession-a memory chest. Each year has
added some new trophy to its contents. Let
us rummage through this chest, reminiscent
of so many achievements, before turning the
key in the time-worn lock, and bearing it
away with us.
Down in a far corner, we have stowed
away happy remembrances of our unsophist-
SENIOR CLASS OFFICERS icated, freshman days. We were a class in the
J' BENTLEY, I' TAYLOR' F' WITTENMEYER making, giving promise of much, but still
Here are some interesting mementoes of our Sophomore year. Glance at these
pictures of the football, basket ball, relay, and track teams, and see how well repre-
sented is the class of '16. Oh, and here is the program from the Sophomore Oratorical
Contest, when our eloquent orators made their debut. The sophomore class was by
this time coming to be recognized by upperclassmen as a group participating in all
forms of activities. '
Oh, the mementoes are becoming more valuable! Here are souvenirs which
call to mind the memorable achievements and athletic triumphs of our junior year.
Who doesn't remember, at the least mention of athletics, that in 197.4 the heavyweight
football team won, first the Big Seven Title, and then the intersectional meet at
Ansonia, Connecticut? Add to that a double championship in basket ball, and you
have a record hard to beat. Three-eights of the squads were juniors.
Then, oh thrills! Here's the program of our Junior Play, "The Whole Town's
Talking." Didn't the town talk about it, though? It was most assuredly one of the
peppiest comedies ever staged by a junior class.
Lying close by the mementoes of the play, we dis- . ,
cover a ticket to the Barn Dance, a straw hat, and a
telegram. Don't they bring back chuckles and jolly
memories of the Farmer's Fair?
Then, a Japanese lantern or two, a faded paper
chrysanthemum, and a green and white dance program-
ah, what a gorgeous party was our Junior-Senior
Banquet. Fluffy dresses, gay youth, and soft laughter.
For many of us it was our first big dance, and the memory
of it will always be delightful. This event brought to a
close a successful year as juniors.
A Events are becoming more vivid in our "mind's
eye." Remembrances of this, our senior year, eclipse all
others in the chest. Our treasure box now yields mega-
phones, "Fight-em' Freeport's' ', score cards, and shields.
Freeport won a double championship in football, better-
ing the record made the previous season. The heavy

Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Basket ball put - ff f
another feather in our cap. The Tournament
team fought through to the State Tourna-
ment, and won it. This glorious victory
brought the championship back to Freeport
for the first time since 1915. The Rockford-
Freeport Relay and Track meet capped the
climax to a most successful athletic season.
A lengthy and enthusiastic clipping gives
proof of the success of our dramatic venture
of the year, "The Prince Chap." Never Was
an audience more profuse with praise.
Here is a trophy to be proud of, too-
the emblem of the National Honor Society. BOARD OF CONTROL
Sixteen ofthe class of '16 were elected to the M- MCC?-ANATHAN, R- GARMAN, R- SEIDEL,
chapter, either in their junior or senior year.
The society enjoyed a luncheon and a banquet
during the year. The members ever maintained the lofty ideal of its constitution.
High scholarship averages were also obtained by a great many seniors, who usually
led the monthly honor roll.
Tucked in between the pages of our 191.6 Annual Polaris is our commencement
program, and next to it is our baccalaureate program. Dr. Stephen A. Lloyd, of
Wilmette, Illinois, and Reverend Walker Vance, of the Freeport Second Presbyterian
church, our commencement and baccalaureate speakers respectively, brought us
messages that will never be forgotten. '
On top of these we put our class colors, our pin, and our diploma. How much
they have meant to us as seniors! Will we ever forget the mixed excitement, thrills,
and sadness of graduation?
It is, perhaps, with a sigh of regret and at the same time satisfaction that we
finger these treasures, for our high school life has come to a close, and our well filled
chest must be locked. It is with a feeling of satisfaction and fulfillment of our purpose
that vve turn the key, for we have participated in all forms of activities, and have
ever striven to live up to the ideals of the school. We are novv on the threshold of
a new life, and carry into it this chest of memories
that vvill give us many happy moments in the future.

made when we elected him for our leader. Next to Wilbert, there is a snap of Rodney

the caretaker of our money. The last snap on the page is one of Margaret Fuss,
Margaret Cannon, Ralph Johnston, and Robert Criddle, our successful Board of

judgment when they selected our class advisors-Miss Nodine, sponsor of all
business meetings, Miss Craig and Mr. Lawyer, Snow Carnival directors, Miss

visions of the Snow Carnival and the peppy dancing afterwards in the gym. 'Member
"Bluebeard's Eight Wives"? Oh! That was a carnival of which to be proud!
A blazing newspaper headline, "Freeport Defeats Ellwood!" is next brought to
light, and this time our smiles are both joyous and proud, for three of the athletes
who made the Ellwood trip were Juniors: Don Botdorf, Ralph Ruthe, and Harold
Perry. There were many "Moonbeam" recruits from our ranks, also-Bob Criddle,
Ral hjohnston, jack Thro, Rodney Smith, Bob Rowley, John Ogden, Forrest Bender,
Buti3Brice, Leslie Krauthoff, Morrell Krell, Earl Soladay, and Martin Schlegel.
We were also well represented on the basket ball courts. Dale Fair, Ralphjohnston,
Forrest Bender, Ralph Ruthe, Qcaptain-elect for next year's teamb, Paul Rohde,Sam
Bolender, Beryl Carlson, and Harold Perry
all helped in sending the final team down to
Champaign to win the State Championship.
The Junior Play, "Honor Bright," with
Margaret Cannon, Marian Ridgway, Dale
Fair, and Rodney Smith in the leads, was one
of the peppiest and most collegiate and popu-
lar ever presented by ajunior class in Freeport
High School. Its comedy touches-especially
those furnished by the Bishop and Tot Marvel

well enacted, ably showing the wealth of
talent in the class. We smile over the pasted

moment, and then again we turn the page. Hammer Wattxaamjunior Story

OUR SNOW FESTIVAL
CExcerpt From A junior's Diaryl
MONG the red letter days of this school year, February twentieth remains in my
memory as one of the most enjoyable. On this date, the class of 192.7 put on
the annual Junior Carnival, which they called the Junior Snow Festival.
My curiosity and interest were aroused weeks ahead by the appearance of all
kinds of the cleverest posters, placed all about school. On some there were pictures
of big snow men, petite snow queens, and dainty chorus girls, and, on ever so many
others, announcements of side shows.
VVhen the evening of the twentieth finally arrived, I met the rest of the girls
about a quarter to seven, and hurried up to the high school building. We entered
beneath a canopy of fluttering white streamers, and then the fun began.
First we went to the movie, entitled "The Romance of an Eskimo Pie-face," and
after we got through laughing at it, we joined a crowd, and had our money exchanged
for tickets, so we could see all the side shows.
We started by having the Japanese fortune teller read our palms, and disclose to
us what the future held in store. Next we heard "The Iceland Eskimo Orchestra"
play, went to see "The Pataganion Midgets" dance, and visited "Sober Sam."
Then, filling up with Eskimo pies, snowballs Cpopcorn ballsD, and candy, we
went up stairs and ventured through "The Cave of the Winds." It was quite chilly,
but lots of fun. After that, we braved an "Airplane Ride," and then we had to laugh
at such shows as "No-Man's Land." We found only a box of dirt, which had a sign
stuck in it, saying, "Who owns this land?" "The Most Popular Things in High
School" proved to be a date and an excuse blank.
While we had been visiting the side shows, several of the girls had been properly
thrilled by receiving "Ico-grams," delivered by a regular Iceland messenger.
About eight o'clock, all the side shows closed, and we all went to the Assembly
to see the feature show of the Festival, "Blue Beard's Seven Wives." It certainly was
funny to see some of the popular fellows about school dressed to represent seven types
of girls. There were the "Vamp," the "Spanish Beauty," the "Demure girl," the
"Funny girl," the "Follies girl," the "Bowery girl," and the "Flapper." Six of them
came out on the stage, one by one, danced, and were killed by Bluebeard. The modern
"Flapper" appeared, and shot Blue Beard, after which the rest of the girls came to life,
then they all sang and danced together very gracefully. Ten girls, dressed in ballet
costumes danced, and two boys sang, and performed "The Eskimo's Version of the
At about eight-thirty, we all went down to the gym to dance. The gym was
decorated wonderfully. White streamers, extending from the walls, met in the middle,
and formed an arch above the dancers. The lights were all covered with white, and
down the middle of the ceiling, silver and gold balloons were strung. The floor was
roped off, having four huge white snowballs at each corner.
With the strains of the last dance, came the end of the fourth annual Junior
Carnival. How I wish I could start in, and do it all over again!

EMORIES are wonderful, aren't they?
Let's set aside everything else for a
while, and stroll down Memory Lane.
Ready? All right, here we go.
Can't you remember, only a year ago,
when we, the Sophomore class of 1916, were
Freshmen, running at top-speed, in order not
to be late to any of our classes? lt really
wasn't so very long ago.
Now another year has passed, and we
have grandly stepped from the Freshman fold,
after many suggestions and promptings from
our Senior friends, or other various authorities, we held our class election in the gym?
Probably we did hesitate some, but all of this time was spent in deciding who should
lead us in our enterprises. We chose for president, Thomas Goetz, for vice-president,
Robert Hayes, and for secretary and treasurer, Florence Taylor. They are all very
popular members of the Sophomore Class, and have proved their ability as leaders.
At this same time, we elected the king and queen to represent our class at the
T. Goetz, F. Taylor, R. Hayes
and are Sophomores. Remember when
Junior Carnival. Arthur Steffen was chosen king, and Elizabeth Hartman, queen.
About a month after the class election, the officers and the board of control met,
and elected Eleanor Ickes as class historian.
Don't you remember how, in athletics, the Sophomores did shine? On the light-
team as well. My, but they were snappy players, weren
We weren't so bad in our scholastic affairs, either
there were two or three of our members who never
missed being on the Honor Roll. We were also repre-
sented in many of the clubs and activities of the school.
Especially did we distinguish ourselves in our oratorical
contest. More than fifty Sophomores tried out for the
contest, and, from this wealth of material, nine students,
four girls and five boys, were chosen to enter the finals.
The results are printed elsewhere in this book. The con-
testants included Elizabeth Hartman, Margaret Bauch,
Marguerite Carpenter, Margaret Kline, Arthur Steffen,

F RESHMAN A HISTORY
cc ILL you children let Grandpa
alone? What? You want another
story before You go to bed? Well!
Well! I'll tell you about the best year I ever
put in at a school.
Years ago, on a Tuesday in September of
1915, a group of shy, timid Freshmen hung
about the doors of the Freeport High School,
hesitating as to whether or not to enter. We
FRESHMAN A OFFICERS entered, and crept around the halls in a
frightened sort of fashion. The Seniors
noticed our distress, and gave a reception to
make us feel at home. How well they succeeded! We immediately lost most of our
E. BURNS, H. NEIMAN, M. SCANLON
unnatural timidity, and became bold and assertive. M
Some of us soon made the Honor Roll bulge with the burden of our names.
Others, less given to study and more to social activities, budded and bloomed into
great opera stars, Red Grange's, Paavo Nurmi's, Moon Baker's, and Paderewski's.
A few of the more gifted students became ardent politicians. Sitting here in my old
rocker, I can imagine that I can still see our class officers making long stump speeches
from the desks in the Assembly. Edward Burns was our president, Mary Scanlon our
vice-president, and Harry Neiman, our secretary and treasurer. All of those oHicers
Were elected on the Students' Ticket. It was great fun.
Many of our promising singers took very active part in the school operetta.
We furnished ambitious young musicians to the band, aspiring and enthusiastic
athletes to the football, basket ball, and track events. The rest of us were occupied
busily in upholding the other school activities to the best of our ability.
"We surely taught the Seniors,Juniors, and Sophomores the art of getting money,
putting it into the School Savings Bank since we lead in
banking quite often. Although we did not win the ,
Annual Book Drive Contest, we did our share at that and
then some. CThe reason we did not win the contest was
perhaps that we were too small to carry as many books
and paper as the winners couldl. In all the operettas,
plays, and musical concerts We furnished a good share of
talent and also helped to form one of the most essential
elements of their success, the audience. We helped in
winning many athletic games by our class athletes and
by our lusty cheering and singing.
"As I look back on it, We were a good crop of Fresh-
men. While we were not a record-breaking world-beat-
ing group. We laid a good, substantial foundation for
the rest of our careers. I also think that our Freshman
High School was the busiest, gayest, and most enjoyable
year ever spent in a school. .......... Why! did I forget
to finish? Well, that's enough, anyway, you young
scamps, get right to bed, and if you are good, you may be
a Freshman some day in the new Freeport High School. " HISTORIAN AND ADVISOR
V. Cox, Miss REITZELL
FRESHMAN B HISTORY
cc ELL, if it isn't my old classmate!
When did you get back to Free-
port?" These words shouted in my
ear and a hearty thump on my back aroused
me from my dreams of "ye olden days."
Turning quickly, I discovered a tall, thin
gentleman with a broad grin on his face,
standing beside me. I didn't have to look
twice to recognize an old schoolmate of mine,
even ifI hadn't seen him in all the years, for
he had changed very little.
FRESHMAN B OFFICERS
K. Adams, Jeanette Schwartz, D. Neff
It was a bright, sunny May morning in the year 1940. I had been standing for
at least five minutes, watching the school children pouring out of the old Freeport
High School building, and thinking of the ,days when I was young and carefree,
and likewise a high school student. Now, my new-found companion and I both
turned our attention to the old high school which was now being used as a grade
We stood in silence for some moments, then John Cfor it was John, if you haven't
already guessed itl began thoughtfully, "Remember the first day you and I and the
rest of our classmates entered the old high school as freshmen?"
"Yes, I should say I do," I replied laughingly. "And remember how those in
higher classes, especially the Freshman A's, tried to trick us? Some of them got me
to go to the oliice and get an assembly ticket. I came out of the ofhce all red, and they
all laughed at me till I felt like running to get away from everyone.
"Well," John said,"we took it out on the new freshmen the next year, and say,
you know the other day, I met one of my old teachers, and had a pleasant talk with
her. Let's see! Who were our officers? DuWayne Neff, President, Kenneth Adams,
Vice President, and Jeanette Schwartz, Secretary and
Treasurer. Do you remember any of your old teachers?"
"I should say I do," I quickly replied. "They were
all good teachers, and most of us liked them. We surely
owe a lot to them now. If it hadn't been for them, I
doubt we would ever have gotten along nearly so well in
life's hard struggles. Little we realized then how much
they were helping to prepare us for the future. How we
used to hate to have to stay in after school because we
had done something in class! Now I would give anything
to be a student back in that old school without any of
the worries and trouble that bother me at present. But
those old days are gone forever!"
With these words, we turned slowly away from the
good old school, glad, at any rate, that we had such
pleasant memories to carry with us.

GLENN HOLMES DONALD MCLEAN PAUL C. MooN
N ATHLETICS, as in everything else, a large part of the success of any undertaking
is due to the proficiency of the directors who have charge of the enterprise. It will
generally be agreed that, in its coaches, Freeport High School has been trebly
fortunate. Having been so fortunate as to have had the services ofGlenn' 'Pat' 'Holmes,
Donald McLean, and Paul Moon, we of the school doubt that anyone could bring
on a trio of mentors who are more adept in their particular lines of high school
Coach Holmes is the fellow who deserves the credit for welding together one of
the greatest quartets of backfield luminaries that ever represented a high school, and
this without exaggeration. Pat is one of our own star athletes of bygone days.
He was a member of the Freeport High School State Championship team 1915 in basket
ball. What could be more fitting than for him to coach a state championship
basket ball squad of his own for his old school? Pat also
had charge of the relay and track teams, both of which
had no little success.
Coach McLean had sole charge of the forward wall
on the champion Pretzel Major football aggregation.
Taking that forward line as one unit, there is little
doubt but that it is the best, or at least as good, as any
that ever played for Freeport. Why shouldn't it be? Sure-
ly Mac ought to know what it is all a-bout. He was an
All-Western selection at guard for Colorado University
Mr. Moon, our lightweight director, has enjoyed
probably as good success as any coach who ever had
charge of a Freeport lightweight squad. Out of four
l attempts, he and his cohorts have annexed three titles
i in two years. Mr. Moon has always had a group of
l inexperienced fellows to work with at the beginning of
the season, but he seems to thrive on this particular sort

RESUME OF THE SEASON
REEPORT teams have once again thrown Old Man Football for a loss by sweep-
ing through their second successive season without knowing the word "defeat".
Over this span of two years, there has been the paltry sum of fifty-seven points
chalked against the Pretzel heavyweight crew, while they have compiled a grand
total of four hundred eighty-nine points, two hundred twenty-eight of these having
been garnered this year, and only ten of the fifty-seven for the opposition having been
made against the team of 1915.
The lights didn't rank nearly so high in the scoring column, getting but one
hundred twenty-six points this season, making a total of one hundred eighty-one for
the two campaigns. In the defensive department, however, they had the edge on
their heavier brothers, holding the opposition to twenty points in 1915, and to a
two years' total of thirty-six.
The crowning feature of the entire campaign, with- W
out a doubt, was the annexation of the Big Seven Con-
ference Championships by both the light and heavy-
weight teams. Another bright spot in the season's pro-
ceeding was the double victory over Rockford, at
Rockford, the ponies winning a hard-fought engagement,
6-o, and the heavies completely inundating the Rab
majors, 67-o. This, by the way is the most overwhelming
defeat of Rockford by Freeport, in the history of the two
schools. The improved cheering of Freeport was an-
other bright spot of the year.
As a fitting climax to this wonderful season, the
heavyweights travelled to Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania,
where they defeated a team which was laying claim to
the national title, Ellwood High, at Pittsburgh, I3-7.
This same Ellwood team holds the Championship of the
Pittsburgh High School conference, so the victory for
Freeport means no little honor to our school.

The Mounting Score at Rockford -
HEAVY AND LIGHTWEIGHT FOOTBALL GAMES
BELOIT-SAVANNA-During the process of handing Beloit a 11-O trimming, Coaches
McLean and Holmes were afforded the chance to get some kind of a line on the
playing qualities of their charges. Beloit furnished a strong team, and the Pretzels
were given one of their closest battles, even though it was the first of the season.
This game was the fourth of a series between the two schools, and the victory
gave the Pretzels a tie, Beloit having won the first, and Freeport the last two.
Mentor Moon's ponies got underway for the first fray of the year, by absorbing
a first class defeat from the much heavier Savanna crew.
BELVIDERE-ORANGEVJLLE-The following Saturday, Belvidere sent her aspiring
gridiron athletes over to Pretzelville to see if they couldn't earn a fall out of the
Freeporters. Their hopes were sadly shattered, however, for when the curtain was
drawn on the day's pastime, the score stood 18-O, favor of Freeport. In this game,
Grell released a few passes, just to see how it felt. As the story goes, the boys on
the receiving end took to them quite readily, and, since Grell himself enjoyed the
sensation, they became one of Freeport's major threats during the rest of the season.

The 'Pretzel Ponies took their initial Win of 197.5 by downing the huge Orange-
ville eleven, 7.5-o. The victory showed that Freeport was going to be well represented
again in the light division.
EAST AURORA-CONFERENCE-After two such teams as Beloit and Belvidere presented,
both of them being extremely light, East Aurora, the first Conference team of the
season, provided quite a change for the Freeport players. These East High School
boys were, in fact, one of the heaviest teams on the Big Seven Conference. The
backfield and overhead play of the Pretzels was, however, too much for the ponderous
Aurora lads to cope with, hence, the 7.4-o score, Freeport winning.
Freeport started the conference season in the proper manner that day, for the
ponies also bowled the Aurora lights over, 17.-6.
ELGIN-CONFERENCEiAS had been predicted earlier in the season, the crowning
feature of the at-home schedule was the encounter with the Elgin Maroons. The day
was rainy and disagreeable, but the gloom which prevailed in the atmosphere was
nothing to that which overshadowed the countenances of the fans assembled in the

Winning Lightweight Touchdown at Rockford
drizzle. This gloom was administered by virtue of a kick from placement under the
direction of Elgin's "Gaga" Mills and his educated boot. The sorrow lifted, however,
when in the third-quarter, Bere, with able assistance from Grell, Jones, and Paul,
went 37. yards around right end for a touchdown, and a 6-3 win of the most serious
game on the Conference schedule.
Umbrellas held first place in style on this occasion, and woe unto him who didn't
possess one, for he was bound to get a neckful from neighboring rainsticksl
The Ponies cut another notch in their victory stick when they went through
the Elgin lights, zo-o. Harry Wurtzel was the scoring genius, with two touchdowns,
while Bender got the other. Broughton made two out of three attempts for extra points.
IOLIET-CONFERENCE'JOll,CII proved to be the next victim of the ruthless Pretzels, and
ithe score was I9'O. Grell was clearly the leading luminary of the conflict, with his
strong-arm passes and clever negotiations of the enemies' flanks. The aerial attack
was used more in this game than at any previous time during the year.
The lightweights added another victory for the cause by defeating the Joliet
ponies, 31-O. The game was a regular hare and hound race, with the Pretzels the

than did the scoring, with 3 and 7. touchdowns respec-
tively. Steffen added one point after the touchdown.
DEKALB-CONFERENCE-Snow was the choice thing on the
menu this day at DeKalb, where Freeport journeyed for
its next triumph. A mere snowstorm couldn't stop the
Pretzels, though, for they just unearthed their snow
shovels and put on their skis. Then, away they went,
through the blizzard, to a 14-o win, and they scored the
sixth success of the year. So far during the 197.5 campaign j
no one had succeeded in crossing the Pretzel goal line. l
The ponies acted in much the same manner as the -1
majors, and stepped out to a I3-O win. It was made i
evident in these two games that weather conditions
meant little to the Freeport teams, also, that if the
championships were to leave Freeport, someone had to do

Grell, On the Way To a Touchdown
WEST AURORA-CONFERENCE-West Aurora proved almost l'-' '
too easy for the title-bent Orange and Blacks. The West
High warriors were completely buried under the 44-o
score. Five of the seven Freeport touchdowns were direct
results of Grell's accurate passing, and the other two
were ably aided by the same brand of work.
' The midgets took their second 13-O game of the
season when they met the West Aurora ponies. The play
was in Aurora territory the greater part of the time.
Freeport was slow to start, and it wasn't until the third
period that they scored. Then Bender ushered in the first
score. Goetz made the other touchdown. '
ROCKFORD-CONFERENCE'OHC of the biggest triumphs in
Freeport gridiron history was the defeat of Rockford
at Rabville, 67-o. The outstanding achievement of the
game was the scoring of 33 points in the third quartet.
CThis was a trifle better than two points per minutej An-

Time Our in Rockford Lightweight Game
by the Ca Utain and center, John Bentley, his first and last of the season. Rockford
threatene once to spoil Freeport's spotless goal line. Toward the fag end of the
final quarter, Cassioppi, diminutive back, grasped a forward pass, and had run sixty
yards, when the inevitable Grell hurled him out of bounds.
The lightweights closed their season by also taking their game from Rockford,
but by not nearly so large a score. In fact, the margin of victory was but a single but
important touchdown, the score standing 6-o. This scoring was accomplished
during the third period, when Harry Wurtzel smashed through the Red and Black
defense for the much coveted six points. The try for the extra point was unsuccessful.
These two victories at Rockford gave Freeport the undisputed championship
rights in both divisions. The weather on this particular day was perfect for football,
BOWEN HIGH or CH1cAGoAOn Thanksgiving Day, Freeport fans were afforded their

most of it, for the biggest crowd of the year was on deck to see a 7.1-O defeat meted
out to the battling boys of Bowen from the wilds of Chicago. The forward passing

of the locals reached its peak on this day. The first nine attempts on the part of the
Pretzels were successful, this showing the consistency of the Pretzel workers. Three
touchdowns were scored, and all by the overhead route.
ELLwooD HIGH or PITTSBURGH--As a reward for their excellent Work during the 1915
season, the players were given a trip to Pittsburgh, where they took on the champion
Ellwood team of that city. Ellwood had come through three seasons already without
feeling the sting of defeat, and, up to this time during 197.5, they had been unbeaten.
This, however, was a Pretzel year, and Ellwood received her first trimming, I3-7.
It was just such a day as the Pretzels were used to, dark overhead, and sloppy
under foot. Nevertheless, these conditions placed a great handicap on the small
Pretzel team. The Ellwood aggregation was, without a doubt, the heaviest which
the Freepotters Were called upon to meet during the season. Nine of their men were
over 6 feet in height, and the regulars had an average weight of between 170 and
and 175 pounds. Big Tom McMurdo, their captain and fullback, scaled 7.7.8 pounds.
This fellow, during his long term of football, had never been stopped. Bere rang up
the first touchdown of the day, when he went 47. yards OE left tackle. Grell crossed

Ellwood's defense,when he threw a pass to Keith from kick formation, for the extra
point. Freeport scored again when Tom MacMurdo's kick from behind the goal
was blocked and recovered by Neidigh. The try for point failed.
During the last quarter, the ankle-deep mud and the tremendous weight carried
by Ellwood began to tell on the Freeport fellows. It was then that "Big Tom"
started on a march down the field, which ended in Ellwood's first and only touchdown.
MacMurdo made the extra points with a plunge through the line. Two minutes
later the whistle closed the most gruelling game in Freeport's gridiron history.
Pittsburgh sport writers, because of his extraordinary displays of football
genius, pronounced Bunny Paul: "The greatest high school vvingman ever seen
around Pittsburgh." They likened the 41. yard run by Bere to runs made by "Red
Grange" in his initial appearance in the East on the same gridiron at the Pitt stadium.
The fans of next season will see scarcely any of that almost mythical team which
furnished them with entertainment and many thrills on Saturday afternoons last fall.
ln fact there will be only two of the boys who will return to the field. Paul,
Keith, Becker, Stimpert, Heinen, Bentley, Bere, Grell, Neidigh, Jones, and Blackiston

In the sectional tourney at Joliet, Freeport drove
through to its second title by decisively winning from
Joliet, another Big Seven comrade. They completed the
final leg of the journey to the big stake, by beating Canton
in the state finals held in the big gymnasium at the
University of Illinois.
One of the features of the schedule was the three-
game series between Rockford and Freeport. The Pretzels
emerged victors in the series, but only after struggling
through two of the most gruelling battles ever staged.
They were dropped by the wayside in an equally strenu-
ous match. Each of these three games was as good as
any other during the season.
- The Pretzels led off with the wrong foot on
their 1915-7.6 schedule, when Coach Moon and his two
teams of Pretzel's Ponies met defeat at the hands of two
Lanark teams at Lanark in the initial games for Freeport
teams. The Hrst string was beaten 2.1-17, and the seconds went under, 16-14, all of
which doesn't really mean a great deal. The games furnished the coach a chance to
size up his inexperienced charges, and find out their faults, of which he saw many.
CAPTAIN Numan, G.
MT. CARROLL1ThC following evening the same squad ofPretzels journeyed to Mount
Carroll. Here they met with a little better success, although the first team was given
a trimming, 15-8. However, the second team defeated the Carroll seconds, 45-4.
DUBUQUEASO far, all Freeport's basket ball shooting had been done by the light-
weights. On this date, the Holmesmen went into action against the strong Dubuque,
lowa, quint at Dubuque. The result was a 7.5-I5 victory for the Pretzels. The game
showed Pat, among other things, that he had charge of a group of basketeers of whom
things could be expected, big things too.

ORANGEVILLE-The Ponies next went into a game which
they won from the Orangers of Orangeville, 7.7.-zo. This
was by far the best exhibition put up by the Moonmen so
far during the year, especially so, considering the quality
of the opposition, for Orangeville had an excellent team.
ALL-STARSfLANARK1ThC local fans were afforded their
first opportunity to see their heavyweights under fire
when the Majors met and defeated a team of High School
All-Stars, all former high school players, 7.5-19.
The lightweights sought and gained revenge the
same night against Lanark, 17-16, thus opening the at-
home season in the proper fashion.
ROCKFORD'CNON-CONFERENCEQ1ThC first of three Rock-
ford-Freeport games was won by the Orange and Black in
one of those typical Rab-Pretzel finishes, 16-14. Herbie '
Keith, with less than a minute to go, won the game with
a high, arching basket from mid-court. Rockford led at
the half, IO-17. The lead changed hands six different times during the last half.
The local Ponies were handed their worst beating of the year, Rockford winning
31-13. The Rockford crew completely outclassed the Moonmen all the way.
PAT Homvias, Heavyweight Coach
EAsT AURORA-CCONFERENCED'-ThC current conference campaign was opened with a
crash when the Pretzels pried off the lid with the East High teams. The opening was
made a great success, Freeport taking both ends of a double bill. The scores were:
heavyweight: Freeport, 31, East Aurora, 17, lightweight: Freeport, zo, East High 16.
ELGIN-CCONFERENCED'BOth teams bumped into some very strong opposition when
they met Elgin, the team that had won the State title for two consecutive years, and
gave Freeport a 17-17 defeat. Freeport was greatly handicapped when McClanathan
and Stimpert were ejected on four personal fouls. Keith scored 9 points in this game.
The lightweights were also defeated, the score being 17-7.1. Coach Moon's fight-
ing boys seemingly couldn't get under way, and it wasn't until late in the game that
they did any real tossing. Then, however, Elgin had things sewed up.

BOWEN-STOCKTON-In the easiest contest of the season,
Freeport easily defeated the highly praised Bowen tribe
from Chicago, 16-7. At no time during the fray did the
Chicagoans have a look-in. ln fact, it was late in the
the third quarter before Bowen finally registered. The
half ended II-O.
The Ponies also took the measure of their 0 uonents.
I A ! 1 1 '
Doc Stone, ably supported, led the assault, with 3
goals and a free throw. One of "Doc's" shots was a one-
handed, over-the-head attempt. It really was sensational.
QIOLIET-CCONFERENCED"ThC Majors' wins reached the
half-dozen mark in overcoming Joliet, by an even dozen
points: score, 7.7-ls. Instead of being lost on the huge
Joliet floor, the Pretzels demonstrated that, on the tem-
T porary local court, they had been decidedly cramped.
The Pretzels used a fast passing game all season, and a
small floor was a decided disadvantage to them.
The Pretzel minors lost a close one to the Prison City lights, 15-13. Fitchner,
Stone, and Goetz each caged a trio of goals for the local cause.
CAPTAIN STEFFEN, G.
DEKALB-CCONFERENCED1ThC Holmesmen carried off a very uneven tilt from the Barb
heavies in the fourth conference game of the season. The margin of victory was
almost L to 1, the final score standing 31-16. By losing to the DeKalb Midgets,
Moon's lightweights lost their third straight conference game, Z0-16.
STREATOR-The heavies left Big Seven competition, to journey to Streator, when
they decisively defeated the Streatorites, 7.6-IO. Led by Keith and McClanathan, the
"Patmen" made things very unpleasant for Streator the entire game. Keith, Stimpert
and McClanathan scored 7.5 points.
TVEST AURORA-CCONFERENCEDTWCSE Aurora furnished a win and a loss to the Pretzels
in their next cage battles, the heavies winning, and the lights losing. The scores

were L4-7. and I8-IS respectively. The victory of the
heavyweights gave them a chance to tie with Elgin for
conference honors, since Rockford beat Elgin, who had
heretofore been undefeated, 7.5-14, on this same night.
BELVIDERE-ORANGEVILLELOH this date, Washington's
birthday, the new gymnasium was first opened to the
public in general and basketball in particular. The
initiation was of the proper sort, for the highly touted
Belvidere team was given a 7.3-I3 defeat.
In the opening game gloom was prevalent, however,
for Orangeville revenged themselves by beating the
ROCKFORD-CCONFERENCED'ThC chance Freeport had of
tying with Elgin went glimmering, when Rockford
administered a one point beating to Pat's aspiring
athletes. The count was 17.-II. The game was a real .
thriller, and just the type to introduce the conference in-
to the new gymnasium. The Rabs accomplished quite a
feat when they held Keith without a single goal.
The local lights brought a joyous surprise, however, when they rallied to the
cause, and saved the Pretzel prestige by a 11-15 triumph over the Rablets. Johnny
Graham was the conquering hero. Rushed into the fray late in the fourth frame,
Johnny delivered the goods, and caged two baskets, putting Freeport ahead. These
were the last games before the district tourney, which was to open a week later.
WARREN-ThC Orange and Black cagers had an easy time in their opening game of
the district meet, when they triumphed over Warren, 7.8-8. Herb Stimpert played a
strong game for Freeport, getting 4 baskets and a free throw. Warren was held to
a lonely field goal by the tight Freeport defense.
STocKToN-Stimpert again led the attack, this time against the Stockton entries.
With four baskets in this game and four in the other, and his all-around good work,

State Tournament Write-Ups
it looked as though Herb was to be the shining light of the tournament from the
Freeport standpoint. Heavy guarding held Stockton to a single goal, score, 14-6.
ORANGEVILLEMIH the semi-final, Freeport defeated the Orangers handily, 34-16.
Orangeville did not have a chance, although they never quit trying. Stimpert again
led with 6 goals, Keith four, and McClanathan, three.
RocKFoRD-Freeport won the final of their three-game series from Rockford, and,
with it, the right to represent this district at the sectional meet at Joliet. The game
ended 15-1 1, and it was a battle from start to finish. Keith scored the first point, with
a free toss, and McClanathan made the first field goal of the evening. The first-half
ended 7-7, the score having been knotted on tvvo previous occasions.
McClanathan was put out early in the third quarter. Bere took his place.
During the game Keith was held Without a field basket, While Stimpert got three,
and Pete and Broughton each one. Broughton's and Ruthe's work was the win-
ning factor of this game. Never did a Freeport guard do better Work than did big
Ole Ruthe. He had the Rockford threats stopped at all times.
The all-star team, picked by the officials included: forvvards, McClanathan,
Freeport, Ralston, Rockford, center, Stimpert, Freeport, guards, Cassioppi, Rock-
ford, and Broughton, Freeport.
Third and fourth places Went to Orangeville and Pearl City respectively.
MOLINE1FfCCPOff players disposed of the first obstacle in their path to the sectional
championship when they downed the ever-battling Moline boys by a score of 7.7-7.1.
In the first stanza, the "Patmen" jumped into a ro-1 lead. They were never headed.
Moline kept at it though, and when the third period ended the score stood, 7.4-16.
The closest Moline came to tying the count was in the final minutes, when they
brought the score up to 7.4-7.1. Stimpert, McClanathan, and Keith made five, four,
and three goals respectively.
BELVIDERE1Tl'1C second meeting of the Belvidere-Freeport crews was under a much
greater tension than the previous one. Be this as it may, the outcome proved to be
the same, for the Pretzels rode in on the heavy end of a 7.7-18 score. Things took on
a much dimmer light for Freeport when Keith was ruled out on fouls. Hovvever, the
commanding lead gained by the Pretzels in the early part of the game was sufficient
to offset the handicap.

FINAL-JOLIE1'-Freeport turned the final stone when they won the finals from their
last Big Seven opponents, Joliet. The locals won with ease, and the score was 19-13.
It was by far the easiest ofthe three games. Never did the Pretzel attack work more
harmoniously than on this occasion. This fact is shown by the even distribution of
field goals, the two Herbs and Pete McClanathan each caging four. Pete also got
four free-tosses, making him high-score man.
ATHENs-The Pretzels drew the mammoth Athens aggregation as a foe with which
to open the State finals. Large as they were, though, Cand they were large enoughD,
Pat's battling basketeers packed them away, and thus removed the fighting Athenians
from all tournament competition. It was a real game, no two ways about it. Athens
led at the first quarter, 6-7., and at the half, 8-6. Freeport had pepped up considerably
during the second period. Just the same, there was quite a scare in the Pretzel camp
about this time.
The third quarter was different. Ruthe and Broughton settled down, and, for
the entire period, kept the giant Athenians scoreless. The quarter ended, 14-8.
Keith and Sprouse, Athenian pivot, tied for scoring honors, with eleven each. When
the game ended, Freeport was perched aloft a 7.1-I5 score.
CANToNAEverything was rosy in the Pretzel camp Cand elsewhere where Pretzels
held forthD when the gun rang down the curtain on the final game of the 197.6 State
Tourney. Why? Well, Freeport had won, 7.4-13. For the second time during the
tourney, Freeport trailed at half time, this time IO-9. This lead was of short duration,
however, for, when the third stanza opened, the "Holmesmen" opened with their
long-range guns, and gained a I4-I7. advantage at the end ofthe third quarter. Stim-
pert was again in the limelight, with six goals. Four of these came in the second half,
when Freeport started its big drive for victory.
Flora won the consolation game from Athens, 7.3-I4. This is the third successive
year that Canton has appeared in the State finals, always losing the deciding game.
The Pretzels were given three places on the all-State crew, selected by the ofiicials.
as follows: forwards, Keith and McClanathan, Freeport, center, Stimpert, Freeport,
guards, Morgan, Canton, and Wells, Athens.

ATHER than disappoint the fellows, who had trained for the cancelled Rockford-Freeport Relay,
the management put their heads together in an effort to dope something out to take the place of the
big event, and found the answer in the intra-mural plan of athletics. The inter-class medley relay
was the result of the conference, and took place at the athletic field. While it c0uldn't possibly take the
place of the Rockford-to-Freeporvjaunt in the minds of the students and runners, the enterprise was entered
into with the characteristic Pretzel energy. The runners received bronze medals.
In order to even things up a bit, the Sophomores and Juniors united their forces against those of the
Freshmen and Seniors, with the result that the Sophomore-Junior combination finished the BV4 mile grind
a full lap to the good. Fifty-four runners competed, two runners on each team running a mile, Five for each
team doing a half mile, ten doing 440 yards, and ten more on each squad covering 7.7.0 yards. The winners
gained practically all their yardage in the mile runs, when Schlegel and Grattelo gained a full lap.
Following is the order in which the two teams ran:
880 yard run-Thro, Krauthoff, Carlson, Mauer, Deemer.
440 yard run-J. Held, Malone, Hutmacher, Ruthe, Hess,
L. Cox, Boomgarden, Taber, Ogden, Rowley.

THE TRACK SEASON
OLLOWING the spirited inter-class relay, the interest in track was sustained by Freeport's entrance
into a number of meets, including the University of Wisconsin Mid-West Relay Games at Madison,
the District Meet at Dixon, the Freeport-Rockford Meet at Rockford, and the Illinois State Meet at
Champaign. Two second places and an identical number of thirds, totalling eight points, were the results
of their efforts at Madison. Three first places, four fourth places, and two fifth places, totalling Lglfz points,
were annexed at Dixon. Three athletes, Wittenmeyer, Held, and Ruthe, won the right to represent Freeport
at Champaign. This and the Rockford meet are still in the future at the time of the writing of this article,
but Freeport fans have great conhdence in the ability of the team members to place.
The Madison meet CMay IOD was won by Senn High of Chicago, who received four first places, at the
same time setting two new meet records. Rockford chalked up seven points, five of which came as the result
of Boyle's sparkling work. The individual winners for Freeport included: Gitchel, the vault star, who
took second in that event, with a leap of ten feet, six inches, the local medley relay team, made up of Rowley,
Wittenmeyer, Grattelo, and Schlegel, who ran a quarter, half, three-quarters, and mile respectively, and
so placed second, Frederick Held, who tossed the jzlvelin 144 feet, placing third, the two mile relay team
CThro,Carlson,Swartz,andDeemerDwho finished third, and
the half-mile relay team CRowley, Bere, Wurtzel, and
PriceD who finished fourth. Of these contestants, Witten-
meyer made his half in 4:5, Schlegel, the mile in 4:55, and
Deemer made the half-mile in 1:11.
Contesting closely for second honors in the district
meet. Freeport won third place. Rock Island was a
strong winner, with 36lf2 points, Savanna second with
7.5, Freeport third with l4lf2, and Rockford again just
just one point behind, with 2.3'f2 points. Twenty teams
were entered, and the entire winning team and the first
and second place-winners in each event were eligible to
go on the state meet, held on May 15, also the date for
the Freeport-Rockford dual meet.
The nrst place winners for Freeport, Wittenmeyer,
Held, and Ruthe, made some very good records at Dixon. Entrance to.Track and Football Field

Bama, Broad-Jump I GRAHAM, High-Jump STOFFRAGEN, Hurdle
Freeman Wittenmeyer ran 880 yards in 7.15, Frederick Held threw the javelin a distance of 153 feet, Ralph
Ruthe threw the discus 108 feet, 4lf2 inches. John Swartz placed fourth in the 7.7.0 yard low hurdles, Harry
Wurtzel and George Price came in fourth and Hfth respectively in the 7.7.0 yard dash, Captain Quintet Bere
won fourth in the broad jump, Charles Stone tied Swanson of Dekalb for fourth and fifth in the high jump,
and the Freeport 830 yard relay team finished fifth.
Coach Holmes' work with the squad was consistently good, and was made especially significant to
the squad, many of whom had worked under him in all the major sports, by the knowledge that, owing
to his opportunities for continuing his own study and his coaching at two prominent state universities,
this would probably be his last coaching contact with them. Holmes-coached teams'have always been
aggressive, well taught, and formidable, and yet possessed of the finest kind of sportsmanship-the kind
that "Pat" has taught them-and this year's track squad was no exception.
With"Big Ole" Ruthe tossing the discus 110 feet M-inch for Freeport's only first place in the Big Seven
Track and Field Meet staged at the Athletic Field, the Pretzels took third place in the games, with 7.8M
points. This was only one point behind Elgin, winners of second place.
Rockford, winners of the meet, piled up a substantial margin of SM points, thanks to the work of
their great individual star, Boyle. Boyle scored 18 of the 37 points scored by the Rabs. In doing this, he
took three Hrst places-and a second, these coming in the 50 yard dash, the high jump, the broad jump,
and the hundred yard dash, respectively. In both the jumping events, he set new conference records, clearing
5 feet, 8 inches, in the high jump, and soaring over LO feet, 42 inches in the broad jump.
Other conference marks fell when Jones of Elgin ran the half mile in 7.:06. Wittenmeyer of Freeport
finished second in this event. Huber also of Elgin, was forced to set a new record in the 17.0 yard high
hurdles to beat out Stoffragen, lanky Pretzel timber topper. Huber's time was 17, 4-5. Perkins, again of
Elgin, stepped the low hurdles in the record breaking time of 7.7 seconds flat. Roche, star miler for DeKalb
set a new conference record in his favorite event, running the distance in 4:44 7.-5.
Fritz Held had bad luck in the javelin event, his foot wandered a scant M-inch over the foul line at
the time he heaved the spear 156 feet, IO inches. This would have been a new conference record, and would
have given the Pretzels a second place in the meet. Fritz, however, took second place, the event going to
Thorpe of East Aurora,
Shippee took third place for the Pretzels in the 50 yard dash, and Schlegel got a fourth in the mile.
The Pretzels took two places in the 7.7.0, when Wurtzel and Price took second and third respectively. Gitchel
and Rowley tied for fourth place in the pole vault, with two other competitors. Captain Bere took fourth
place in the shot put. Freepott's 880 yard relay team took second in that event.

F REEPORT,S "BIG TEN"
cc OMETHING different" was introduced into Freeport's basket ball circle this season. Instead of
staging the annual inter-class basket tournament, the authorities thought that it would be much
more interesting if some new plan was devised. The "Big Ten" was the result of their deliberations.
The name A'Big Ten" was chosen because of the fact that the teams entered were named for certain
participants in the Big Ten Western Conference composed of such teams as Illinois, Wisconsin, and Michigan.
The league was under the supervision of Professor Boyd Garns, of the Manual Training and Drafting
departments, That alone is suflicient to say that the enterprise was a great success, Don Blackiston, former
lightweight luminary of 1914, had charge ofthe um iring job, and he did it as only "Blackie" knows how.
Games were played every Tuesday and Thurs ay after school in the high school gymnasium, there
being two games on each of the two days. If it be thought these games were mild affairs, let that thought
be placed in the discard, for there never was more spirited rivalry, even in a Rockford-Freeport mixup,
than there was in the race for the "Big Ten" honors, "Iowa", captained by "Fanny" McLarnon, main-
tained a perfect percentage, winning from Wisconsin in a breath-taking final game. Such a plan proved to
be beneficial in more ways than one, for, in the first lace, it greatly stimulated interest in the sport. This
was shown by the number of students along the si elines watching the games, and the enthusiasm with
which the players entered into the contests. The plan also allowed boys whose ability or time were such
that they couldn't make either the light or heavyweight regular teams, and who wanted to play basket
ball, a chance to do so. The success with which the plan met practically insures a continuation of the games
in years to come, at least, such is the hope.
Following are the names ofthe players on each team:-Wisconsin-Rowley, captaing Balz, E. Borchers,
Chronic, Rand, Toelle, Hartman.
North Western-K. Madden, captaing C. Smith, Summers, Plowman, Walters, Murphy, E, Williams,

HE PEP CLUB, whose aim it is to be the peppiest group of girls about school, and whose activities
extend to support of athletics and everything else that calls for enthusiasm, have undertaken an
entirely new enterprise for the stimulation of athletics among the girls of the school, This new
idea, that of letter and numeral awards for girls, is being worked out through the cooperation of Miss
Craig and the girls' gymnasium classes.
Miss Craig, the girls' physical director, has undertaken the responsibility of directing this activity,
and she has already given it enough of a start to insure its becoming a permanent activity, and one that
fills a long felt need, Through this plan, girls are enabled to acquire class numerals and, finally, letters,
as a reward for active participation in inter-class athletic contests, organized hikes, and gymnasium work.
The numerals can be earned in volley ball, baseball, and in recognition of good sportsmanship. Ten practice
sessions must be completed, after which the student is eligible to compete for membership on a team.
For the first one hundred points, numerals are awarded. As soon as a girl makes the team, she is credited
with one hundred points. No fixed number of points is awarded or deducted for good or bad sportsman-
ship, that depending upon the discretion of the supervisor. So far, it has not been necessary to deduct
any points for poor sportsmanship, although many have been added for good conduct.
Chevrons are given for every two, three, four, and five times that one hundred points are made. For
the sixth one hundred points, a letter is received. Since the award system has been in force only this year,
it has been impossible for any person thus far to win a letter, although a number of the girls are well on
their way toward the coveted award.
The last, and perhaps the most important requirement for membership in the numeral group, from the
viewpoint ofthe Pep Club at least, is that a girl must be a member of the club, Violet Cole, one of the
participants, has completed every requirement up to date, but, since she is not a member of the Pep Club,
she will not receive a letter or numeral.
Those possessing numerals at the close of the year include the following persons: Augusta Boelter,
Margery Cramer, Frances Harnish, Dorothy jean Moore, Roberta Moore, Marie Witte, Vera Witte, and
Mildred Wood. All of these girls are underclassmen, and will have the opportunity of winning letters
before the completion of their high school course.

T SEEMS useless to attempt to express our appreciation in this year-book for the part the band has
taken in the activities of the school during 197.5-7.6. Many times it has inspired us all when almost
everything else has failed. Imagine our games, football and basket ball, this year without the part
the band has played in winning the victories! "Pep" is the word that its members would emphasize,
and the word they bring to the heart of every student through their music. Much credit should also be
given to the director, Mr. Karl Kubitz, a man who is himself a musician of much talent.
The uniform adopted by the band, consists of a white V-neck sweater, white duck trousers, black
cape with an orange lining, and a hat of orange and black, carrying out the colors of the school.
Arrangements were made and carried through this year for the
i Hnest concert which the members of the band have ever sponsored.
An added attraction to this year's program was a small town band
personated by a group of the students, Classical selections, popular
songs, and group and solo numbers made up the other part of the pro-
gram, which was greatly enjoyed by a large audience.
Definite plans for the program of the band next year are now being
formulated, and it is certain that this organization will continue to be
a permanent and valuable institution of the school.

HE HISTORY of Freeport High School's musical clubs has been a long and an honorable one, having
been begun soon after the organization of the high school, and their place in the school life has always
been a valued one, This year the boys' club, the Glee Club, has added a year of real achievement to
this history, not only by giving excellent training to its members,but by taking a prominent place in the
school entertainment program as well.
The membership of the Free ort High School Glee Club this year was made up of forty-Eve boys, whose
voices combined to make a goo chorus. The membership selection is on a try-out basis. Business meetings
are held twice each month and an hour a day is given to the regular work of the club. This results in a
well-organized and well-trained group. Headed by its officers, Charles Young, Richard Youngblood,
David Rowen, and Arthur Steffen, and by its advisor, Miss Nicoll, the club has made notable progress
in the course of the year.
The group has made a number of successful public appearances this year, before high school audiences
and before audiences made up of towns-people. Accompanied by Ruth Garman at the piano, they sang a
number of quite diflicult songs in such a manner as to win for themselves much praise. Their first appearance
was before the high school assembly, where the other students were given an opportunity to hear of the
opportunities open to them in the music department. Later they appeared before the Lindo Theater audience
at the request of Mr. Dittman, and presented a clever prologue, dressing in the approved college boy fashion,
and singing a number of college songs, including "Collegiate"
The last appearance ofthe club as a group was at the
' Baccalaureate service, when they, together with the
Treble Clef Club, presented a very appropriate and pleas-
ing program. This program spoke well for their year's
work, and, since not quite one-fourth of the members
were graduated this year, the Glee Club should be a
stronger club than ever next year.
The operetta was so successful that the music depart-
ment was enabled to buy a new orthophonic machine for
the appreciation classes. V

The orchestra is fortunate in having a well-balanced instrumentation and a large number of experienced
musicians. The response to the request for additional string instrument players was gratifying to the
director and all others interested in the progress of the orchestra. The members are fortunate, in-as-much
as they receive a great deal of enjoyment and instruction.
The orchestra is even willing to support the dramatic activities of the school. It is a well-known
fact that the orchestra adds enjoyment to class plays and operettas. Its cooperation with those taking part
has been the means of making many of these class enterprises a success.
Although a great many students that are now in this organization are graduating, the success of the

F. H. S. DRAMA REVUE---197.6
'CTHE DREAM PLAYH
"The Dream Play"-that's another memory for you, memory book, one that I don't want to forget
ever. It all centers around a dream. One night, as I was thinking over the plays and the operetta of our
school year, they all seemed to weave themselves into one big play, and the name of that play was "Fx H. S.
Drama Revue." Then, as I seemed to be walking down a dream avenue, that sign above blazed down at
me, announcing the final product of two whole semesters of dramatic achievements, which, naturally,
lured me inside, expectant. I'll try to summarize those plays for you, Diary, just as they were enacted
before my eyes at that dream theatre, so you, too, may know what wonderful results were obtained by the
persistency of the coaches, the resolve of every character to do his or her best, and the splendid co-operation
of the students and townspeople, which all went toward making this school year, in a large sense, a com-
plete dramatic success.
But First I must tell you about the coaches, those veritable human dynamos of action, supercharged
with energy, who were behind all of the plays, and to whom we give
a large share of the credit for this record year. The dramatic work was,
on the whole, under the supervision of two men: Mr. Jones, who left us
early in the season, and his capable successor, Mr. Immel. Of course,
there were general directors, faculty advisors, and all kinds of com-
mittees for each play and for the musical comedy, but the primary
power and push were vested in these two men-our dramatic coaches.
But now, to get back to the dream: as I said before, I was lured
inside, and-expectant. Wonderingly I entered, and I'll try to tell you
what I saw-and felt, as I entered, and sat down.
QA closed curtain, the sudden hush which always precedes the
first few movements of the draperies,and that vague indescribable feeling
of expectancy-all are there. An announcer appears. ' Slowly and
majestically, in a deep, ponderous voice, which seems to well up from a
stiffly starched shirt-front, he acquaints us with the details of the revue
which is just about to be staged, His prologue to the play gives us the
following background materialj
I The Hrst act-the production which opened the dramatic season
for the graduating Seniors and their under-classmen was, we learned,
MR'-l0NES the Senior Play, presented in the form of "The Prince Chap." This

P ' play was a comedy in three acts, directed by Mr. jones, and presented at the Germania Theater on December
the third and fourth. It was shown to a full house both nights, and came up to the expectations of every- lj W lv'
I 1 one, being an interesting combination of tears and laughs from beginning to end. W f
1 The next act, and a very gala event of the revue, was, he told us, the pleasing musical comedy, the I If
F "Belle of Barcelona," sponsored by the music classes of the school. It was ably directed by Miss Nicoll,
our music instructor. The choruses and costumes were originated and designed by Hezekiah Diefenthaler, -N'
and the orchestra under the combined direction of Mr. Kubitz and Miss Nicoll, presented the difhcult
f -Q., Spanish music with the best effect. i
Thirdly, we heard of the presentation of "Honor Bright," the junior play. We learned that an en- 'la
I tirely new idea, never before tried at Freeport, was introduced in this "act", This innovation was that of l ,-
I having two sets of principals, one set for each presentation night. This idea was well received by the public, ' "
i and added "just another laurel" to the ever-increasing ones of the new director, Mr. Immel. f
Then, to make the already successful "play" a fully rounded one, came the numerous minor dramatics, 1 l xiii
such as assemblies, club plays, and the plays given by the dramatics class, which were put before the 5
L' public eye during the 192.6 dramatic season. These were all of a high quality, and were well received. E

are not on the verge of tears for Peyton's sakeD. In it, we are given
rare glimpses into English life. These are gained by the picture of
struggles of William Peyton, a young artist, true to all the requisites
of an American gentleman, "Puckers", the grimy, dirty, and yet
childishly winning waif, who "tends the fire", Runyon, the staid old
English butler, true to form, always stone-faced and strong disposi-
tioned, despite a soft heart, and Jack Rodney, the count, whose "oh,
ma deahs!" and "old chaps" seem to fit in just right.
Like all true comedies, it mingled humor with pathos, laughter
with tears, having that decided emotional quality and pull which gave
a "tug" to the heart-strings of even those who had sincerely believed
that they would never be so foolish
as to wax sentimental over a play,

The plot deals with an ambitious young artist, who, owing to his
unfailing kindness towards those in less pleasing circumstances than
he, remains poor. Fate brings a dying widow Cenacted splendidly
by Elizabeth WiedenhoftD to his door, with her child, and his death-bed
promise to her is to "take care" of Claudia, the girl. Claudia as a
child is a winsome little nymph, and soon holds the heart ofthe artist
in her own chubby lingers. Then, in the light of his studio Fireplace,
after she has been told that her mother had gone on a long, long journey,
and her "now I lay me's" have been said Cto which she has added
pleading-"And please, God, bless my new Daddyul, Peyton tells her
a good, long story about "Princess Alice", 'way off in America, and
how some day she will come to them, marry the "Prince Chap", and
C ne Hmzelretl Four
love them both. Edwin Hall, in the title role, brought a splcndidly
mature interpretation to the part. Little Virginia Cathcart made an
appealing little Claudia, and did some of the most effective work in
"Princess Alice" decrees otherwise. She comes to London, but,
instead of fulhlling the promises made to the "Prince Chap" in America,
she accuses him unjustly, and leaves his world dark and gloomy, except
where little Claudia lightens the way for him. Catherine Womer
made a very successful and haughtily attractive "princess"
Claudia grows up. The promise of a beautiful childhood has been
fulfilled, and she grows up the sweet, innocent girl that Dorothy Ryan's
understanding interpretation showed her to be. The time comes when
she wonders as to the vague, indescribable feelings she has for the
"Prince Chap," and she doesn't know until Jack Rodney, an English
man, who is in love with her, Cplayed with real feeling and faultless
accent by Tom Moersl makes her realize that it isn't "Daddy" she
loves, but-Peyton, Things then
seem still darker for her, because "Hip, Hip, Hnrmlaf'
"Princess Alice" relents and comes
to the Prince-only to go away disappointed, because the Prince,
too, needed just such a tonic to make him realize that it was Claudia
he loved, and not his Princess Alice. So, with this new awakening in
both, it doesn't take long for things to happen as they should, and
soon the "story" comes true, after all, only it is '4Princess Claudia"
It seems almost unnecessary to go over the characters to point OLIIZ
their achievements to you. The big thing which we all felt, I think,
is that each and every person taking part succeeded in "getting across"
the feelings, lines, expressions, and emotions necessary to make the
play the big success that it was. To Peyton, CEdwin Halll a special
mention is due for his most natural and powerful interpretation of the
character of Peyton, the kind hearted artist, around whom the plot
centered. His success, we think, is partly due to the fact that he is
almost a real "Prince Chap" in his everyday life. The comedy honors
"IW 4 fqwf in Mk," are unquestionably the just desert
of Eleanor Kennison, who, in the
role of the little slavery "Puckers", kept the audience between tears
and laughter. Marvin Boyd's Runyon was just pompous enough to
make effective contrast to "Puckers". Tom Moers' big moment when he
portrays jacks sporting acceptance of Claudiafs proposal was done
with a hnish that would have done credit to a much more experienced
actor. Elizabeth Wiedenhoft's time on the stage also showed her a
capable actress. It was certainly a play worth seeing.

This year's operetta has its setting in Barcelona, a picturesque Spanish village, a village which, in
itself, holds for us the charm of romantic old Spain, a village which, by its very moods and passions,
portrays the spirit of youth and romance. It is fiesta time. We have a mingled impression of black, black
hair, black lace, black eyes, the grace of a flaunting shawl, and the redness of a blush-defying rose. Tinkling
tambourines, the drowsy tulT1-tum of castanets, and the
low strumming of a guitar lull our senses. There is the
lusty excitement of a bull fight. Colorful costumes, dancing,
and merrymaking charm our eyes. All in all, it is a setting
of picturesque appeal and riotous color,a fitting background
for the plot itself.
Marguerita de Montero Clilizabeth Andersonl,
daughter of a wealthy plantation owner, Luis De Montero
QArthur SteffenD, returns home from a finishing school in
Madrid. She arrives iust in time for the fiesta, the big event
of the season, just as they are hailing Emilio CRichard -
Youngbloodj the toreador-suitor of Mercedes CFlorence ff53,,,,p,,,1,,,iCM00,,"
Taylorl Margarita's sister.
Three years before while touring the United States, Margarita has met, and fallen in love with,
Lieutenant Harold Wright CCharles Youngl, but owing to an unexpected recall to Spain, she has not
seen him since.
Later, Lieutenant Wright, with Pat Qohn Ascherb leaves for Barcelona as Customs Inspector. Here,
in the Plaza, he finds a scarf on which is a pin that has been given to Margarita as a token of his love,
however, later he meets Marguerita herself. Their
V adair is renewed, but they are prevented from marrying
because Margarita's mother, Gloria de Montero CGertrude
Kriegb, has planned her marriage to a Spanish nobleman,
Franciso De la Vega CWilbur Kerlinl.
Harold suspects De la Vega of unlawful graft in the
customs house, but is at first unable to prove it. De la Vega
and his plantation manager, Pedro CRobert Skellyl, plan
to cheat Margarita's father in a deal, but the conscience-
stricken manager refuses to go through with it.
However, the marriage negotations continue, The

friends of the brides, acting as bridesmaids, while Captain
Colton, CRodney SmithD, of the cruiser Montana, Hal's
ship, is best man. Of course, it all ends happily.
The principals' voices and acting were ever so good
this year. Elizabeth Anderson's voice was beautiful in the
solos, and I've never seen anything funnier than Maryetta
Gage and John Ascher. I like Charles Young's tenor too.
"Happy Wedding Bells."
The choruses this year were the best ever, too, Diary. The first to make their appearance were the
U.S. Marines, resplendent in their white, middy uniforms. Then there were the Spanish students, girls
and boys, who were whirling and gay in colorful native costumes. Too, there was a group of young
aviatrixes in black patent leather costumes, gauntlets, aviator caps and all. In the midst of a stirring
duet number between the reunited lovers, the Moonbeams,
in thin pale, blue, shimmery-gauze costumes fairly scintil-
lated in their "Dance of the Mirrors." And then, in the
spectacular wedding climax, the Bridal chorus seemed to
be a bit of the rainbow itself with their pale pastel shade
costumes. Large drooping picture hats, wide flaring skirts,
and coy pantaloons made their costumes ever so attractive,
and, too, all the choruses seemed to respond to the music
in the presentation of their dance steps.
All in all, the musical comedy was one grand suc-
cess, made so by the untiring efforts of the cast, choruses

STORY OF THE PLAY
The scene of the play is the fashionable North Shore
MN0 fwl lik., an old fool." summer home of the Barringtons at Beach Haven, Mass-
achusetts. "Dick" Barrington, to his parents' horror has
become engaged to Tot Marvel, a musical comedy actress, and invites her to dine at his mother's home.
The purpose of this dinner party is to give his Aunt Peggy and Uncle Bill an opportunity to "inspect"
his fiancee, Tot, however, is arrested before her arrival at their home, and Dick in desperation enlists
the aid of Honor Bright, a young college girl working as a book agent, to take Tot's place, and pose as
his fiancee for the dinner. All goes well until the real Tot
shows up. Dick has quite a time explaining the presence
of two brides-to-be. The situation is more complicated
when the oHicers arrive to arrest Tot. To get rid of Tot,
Honor and Dick wire her cave-man lover Bill Drum, who
she had thrown over, for Dick, Tot refuses to budge unless
she is thrown out, but Bill, the cave-man, who says, "Tot
has more tricks for being stubborn than an educated mule,"
and who 'Lunderstands this disease called artistic tem-
perament," finally succeeds in "emitting" her, winning
back, her love by his "masterful ways." Honor also decides
to play the role of fiancee to Dick permanently, and all
With "Honor Bright," a new type of comedy never Hlfli dffw wgfflfy Miffhf' Rifbdfdfl
before given by any classes was secured. It is described as being really "Collegiate" and modern, and all
those who saw it will heartily agree that it lived up to its reputation. All of us, at one time or another,
have always longed or dreamed the situation of just such a play, haven't we? We've either been the dashing,
daring heroine, the stalwart and noble hero or the bold, cave-man lover over and over again, in day dreams
Y and mind wanderings. So the play was really a dream come
true, in a sense, and a quite pleasant dream at that-
The "double-cast" idea was also something new for
us. The four leading roles were played by different char-
acters the second night of this play. This lent variety,
and was another of Mr, Immel's ways to show the public
and to give the public-the best of himself.
The parts were all well taken, too. The part of Honor
Bright, the collegiate little college student was especially
well presented both nights, as a "lead" naturally showed up
to be. And the chorus girl Tot! Both nights she was just
what she was supposed to be, a real, gum-chewing chorus
girl, who caused the two reverend gentlemen present to

Maggie, and-heavens, why all of them! Anyway, it was
One of the nicest things about it was the beautiful
stage setting that was arranged under Mrs. Carnahan's
supervision. All that lovely furniture was arranged so
attractively that one felt he was really in a luxurious
English drawing room. Another thing that was of in-
terest about this production was the fact that an unusual
amount of splendid talent was discovered in next year's
senior class. Both sets 'of principals handled their parts
with an ability that bodes well for next year's dramatic
work. I prophesy that we shall hear much from Marian

Ridgway, Margaret Cannon, Margret Fuss, Margaret

William Lambert. Both Marian and Margaret gave the title role just that touch of girlish sweetness
necessary to the part. The pleasing character of the bishop was made very real by William, and
the others showed good understanding ofthe requirements of their parts.

So ends the Junior Play, the last big event of the
season. But there are still the many minor dramatic ven-
tures-just as important, Diary'-
"Now, girly, dmff worry."
QAct four of the Dream Play.D
O ROUND out a successful school year in dramatics, there were the various club plays and assemblies
which were presented during the year.
To begin at the beginning, there was "The Christmas Guest," given by the Junior Orange and
Black Club at their December meeting. The Commercial Club followed suit in the presentation of "Diogenes
Looks for a Secretary," a play containing many useful hints for the would-be stenographers, typists, and
bookkeepers. This was also repeated at the Night-School party and dance held in the latter part of April.
The Latin Banquet was royally entertained by the Latin play, the characters talking in approved Latin
style, and dressed in the approved modes of the period.
And then, there was the Polaris Assembly put on during the drive. It was a playlet written by Miss
Cravens, in which the characters of the coming annual took shape in the dreams of the old grandfather
who is reminescing over the annual of his high school days. It was quite the "hit" assembly of the sea-
son, since a huge Polaris was cleverly centered on the stage, out of which the dream people came.
The Dramatics class also provided an entertaining assembly by giving three short plays, which were
read by three girls, members of the class.
These three girls, Phyllis Wagner, Alice Jephson, and Margaret Cannon, were only a few among the
many successful players who appeared in minor dramatic productions. Jane Hayes, Bernita Kroll, Eleanor
Ickes, Beulah Evans, Alice Miller, Margery Cramer, Marguerite Broughton, and Margaret McKenzie
made "The Christmas Guest" a success. Alfred Koester, Francis McLarnon, Catherine Womer, Grace
Sullivan, Eugene Chitty, Ruth Atz, Mildred Smith, and Lois Chitty took part in "Diogenes Looks for a
Secretary" successfullyulane Borgmier, Rose Hoffman, Lucille Pack, Elizabeth Anderson, Edwin Hall,
Laverne Grell, Forrest Paul, Robert Criddle, Margaret Mayer, Phyllis Wagner, and others "starred" in
"School Daze," the Polaris assembly. Louella Shouer, David McNary, Edwin Hall, and a number of
others added to the pleasure of the Latin Club play by their capable work.
The Senior Orange and Black also had a play, and the Cramberries, Home Economics, and-oh-all the
other clubs had one in some form or other at their meetings during the year, but, Diary, it's time l am
There, I've told you all about my dreams, and the "Dream Play," at which all of these plays were
reviewed for me, Diary, and well,-wasn't it a rather nice sort of a dream to have?

Date: Perhaps fifty years from now.
Today has made me realize how quickly time does fly. I have been looking
through my memory book, and the chest in which I once gathered all the souvenirs
of those pleasant days of 1913-1916, and I have been letting my thoughts go back
to the gay times which my classmates of Freeport High School and I once had.
Upon opening my memory chest, I found a torn and faded paper napkin-a
reminder of the Senior reception given that long ago September, in order to "estab-
lish" the Freshmen. Under the napkin was written-"Program in assembly-edance
-delicious refreshments." And that describes the reception.
I next espied a soiled, worn piece of "lavender and old lace," and beside it a
crumpled rose bud. What memories they did awaken! They were reminders of my
best gown and of the corsage I wore at the delightful dinner dance given by the
Rotary and Kiwanis Clubs in honor of our national championship football teams of
the 197.5-197.6 season. This was held in the Masonic Temple.
The thing next attracting my eye was an orange and black paper doll, a favor at
the Hallowe'en costume party given by the Senior Orange and Black. This is pasted
next to a small George Washington hatchet from the Orange and Black Colonial Ball.
Upon glancing over the names on a dance program, I found many prominent senior,
junior, sophomore and freshman names written in youthful scrawls. Upon the back
of the program was written-"Marvelous time." How well I remember the Junior
Snow Carnival! The snow queen, the many side shows, and the dance. I
The Honor Society also, proved. their ability at being an active organization,
at their delightful spring luncheon. Daffodils, yellow and white, carried out the
color scheme. An interesting program and a good luncheon tended to make that
afternoon pass all too quickly.
There are more tickets, menu cards and ever so many things to remind me of my
school days. The Hi-Gob Carnival, with its side shows and fortune tellers, also was
another event not easily to be forgotten. I next found a dance program which re-
minded me of the splendid dance the townspeople gave for our band, debate teams,
and basket ball teams at the Masonic Temple.
A small card, with "Gedunker's Hard Time Ball" written on it, made me think of
that organization. The Gedunkers Club was a group of high school students who
sponsored many parties at the Welty Club. I wonder where the Gedunkers are now?
A dainty place card served as a reminder of the lovely dinner party given by
Mr. and Mrs. R. K. Farwell in honor of the basket ball team. A delicious dinner
and an evening of delightful entertainment were proof enough that this was another
of the successful parties of the season.
The "Spring Fever Frolic," given at the Sigma Tau Delta Club rooms, by three
of our athletes, Harold Neidigh, Forrest Paul, and Donald Botdorf. The Treble Clef
Club and the Glee Club, the musical organizations of the school, also participated
in the social activities. Their annual spring dinner dance was always one of interest,
but the clubs of 197.5-192.6 made this an exceptional party.
While turning the pages of my book, I found a small sample of silver and blue
taffeta and lace. This brought happy memories of the Junior-Senior Banquet. And
yet, it has passed-only to be recorded by bits of things which serve as remembrances.
Diary, I miss those days of parties and dances in Freeport High School. I'm
lonely for those dear days-past-only to be remembered as the social adfairs of the
school year of 192.5-1916.

HE SENIOR Hi-Y is the center of activity for the junior and senior boys of Freeport High School.
This organization is linked with the Y. M. C. A., and cooperated wonderfully this year with that
association. Meetings were held every Wednesday noon at the Y. M, C. A. building.
The Hi-Gob carnival, because of its originality and clever stunts, was pronounced a huge success.
The primary purpose of the Senior Hi-Y is to encourage and promote friendship. Gay says
'ATis thus that on the choice of friends
Our good or evil name depends."
Keeping this in mind, the boys worked to keep their association among those of reputable character. The
campaign of friendship aimed to serve this purpose, and also to bring more boys within the folds of the Hi-Y.
To show the fathers what leadership and executive ability their sons had obtained through the Senior
Hi-Y, a father and son banquet was held February 19. In the spring the mothers shared this privelege by
a mother and-son banquet.
During the campaign of the 4c's, which included
clean living, clean speech, clean scholarship, and clean
athletics, the boys worked very hard, and reaped much
The Senior Hi-Y closed its year of activity with the
Junior and Senior Hi-Y banquet, which left a pleasant
taste, and insured happy recollections for all time to come.

HE SENIOR Orange and Black Club is one of the most popular clubs in Freeport High School. The
reason for this is found in the fact that its programs, so well planned by the program committee with I I
the aid of the advisor, always present features of entertainment, combined with helpful suggestions
for the uplift of every girl. j
True to the s irit ofthe season the irls conducted their October meetin in the form of a Hallowe'en ' I
P , i g, A , , , X , j i
Party, and devoted their November meeting to a discussion of Thanksgiving, especially the nrst Thanks- j j
giving Day, as described by Miss Reitzell. According to custom, a Thanksgiving assembly was given by 5 g
the club, for the purpose of collecting money for baskets for the poor. , j j
Perhaps the most beautiful and the most longed-for event in the history of the club this year was a 5
Colonial Ball given March hrst. A novelty for this Q I
delightful evening was a Virginia Reel, in which 5 I
everyone joined. ij
A St..Patrick's program, given ln conjunction with q
a green tea, was carried out in March, while the "fool" I Q
played an important part in the April meeting. I j
The Senior Orange and Black Club consists ofjunior I ,
and Senior girls, and is one of the most enjoyable j
and instructive clubs to which a girl who wants to get j 3
the most out of school can belong. I I

HE JUNIOR Hi-Y, composed Of freshman and sophomore boys, was Organized rather late this year
owing to the fact that the boys were busy with so many other functions. The Senior Hi-Y acted as
the older brother, and guided the young club to success.
Like the Senior Hi-Y, the junior Hi-Y aimed to link together the boys in Freeport High School with
the bond Of friendship. Because of the splendid help from the Y. M. C. A., and from the Senior Hi-Y,
the boys in this club accomplished their purpose. The Junior Hi-Y held its meetings together with the
Senior Hi-Y, and took an active part in the programs, Every boy in school was welcomed to the father
and son banquet, which was sponsored by the two clubs. The business people of Freeport cooperated with
the two Hi-Y's, and, on one eventful day, showed their confidence in the two organizations by placing
Harry Wurtzel, president of the senior club, in the position Of mayor of the city. Such an honor is eagerly
looked forward to by the members Of the junior club.
The Junior Hi-Y also helped to make the mother and son banquet a success, and they entered into the
Tri-County Conference, made up of delegates from Stephenson, JO Daviess, and Ogle Counties. This con-
ference gave the boys of both Organizations the valuable opportunity Of making the acquaintance Of many
other boys interested in a society which cooperates with
W H the principles Of the Y. M. C. A.
Although theJunior Hi-Y was small in numbers this
year, it has worked hard, and the harvest which it has
reaped will be evident in the membership of the Junior
Hi-Y of 1917.

JUNIOR ORANGE AND BLACK
HE JUNIOR Orange and Black Club, like its elder sister, the Senior Orange and Black, represents the
spirit of the girls of Freeport High School. It extends its membership privilege to all freshman and
During the past year, the success of this well known organization has been marked. The Baby Party,
with which the club launched out into the sea of activity, was very well attended and enjoyed by all. Musical
numbers aided in furnishing the finishing touches to the rograms. A talk on the "Motives of Dress,"
given by Miss Judy, was a decisive feature in the success O the club.
The Junior Orange and Black took an active interest in the Older Girls' Conference held here last fall.
This gave the girls an opportunity to meet many girls who live outside Of Freeport and who are interested
in the same line of work.
At Christmas time the members of the club made use of their talent by presenting a playlet, "A
Christmas Guest," coached by Miss Cravens. The play was so successful that it was repeated by request
at the Y. W. C. A.
At the January meeting Miss Normile spoke to the girls on the subject, "When, how, and what to eat."
Her talk gave helpful suggestions which were appreciated all the more because it proved to be her last
appearance before this group.
- Every freshman and sophomore girl ought to be a
member of the Junior Orange and Black, and take this
wonderful opportunity of making Worth-While friends.
The Junior Orange and Black has always aimed toward
bringing to the girls instructive suggestions, together
with a great amount of entertainment.

HE PEP CLUB, as the name signifies, is a club full of life and activity. This year its held of service was
enlarged from that of a cheering group to that of managership of the ticket sales for all athletic enter-
prises. The old Athletic Council was abolished, and the whole Pep Club placed in its stead, with
a group of ten girls at its head.
Every football and basket ball fan knows that the Pep Club is invaluable at the games. A special
place-was reserved for them at the games, and they lead the crowd in cheering, and helped to inspire the
hard-working teams with enthusiasm. A large Pep Club banner was always visible, waving over their
The season ticket sale among the adults, as well as among the students, was remarkable, owing to the
fact that every Pep Club member was hard at work to back the teams. As a reward, several new features
were added this year. Rewards were given to the girls who sold at least ten adult season tickets. Elizabeth
Anderson received a special gift for selling the largest number of tickets during the athletic season.
The members of the Pep Club were also given the privilege, heretofore not open to Freeport High
Mr. Cnoss, E. KENNISON
School girls, of earning numerals ' and letters. The
method by which these rewards were obtained was
based upon the intramural system, which is used in many
universities and women's colleges. By this method, a
certain number of points was awarded to every girl who
met the requirements. An average of 80 each month, the
ability to take gymnasium work, and membership in
the Pep Club were the first and foremost requirements.
The others included: four seven mile hikes Ctwenty-live
pointsD and four sets of hikes each semester, one-half hour
of volley ball each night for ten nights during the series
Cfifteen pointsD, a semester average of eighty-live Cflfteen
pointsDg a grade in gym of ninety Clive points each

Cfifteen pointsD. Besides all these ways of obtaining points, credit was also given for special services in
behalf of the school. Since the Senior girls had only one year in which to work, only four hundred points
were required of them for a letter. The other girls had to have six hundred points to their credit. Several
of the girls were able to earn their numerals this year.
After the athletic season was over, the Pep Club confirmed its good reputation by its successful party,
given for the football and basket ball boys. The party was carried out in the form of a matinee dance,
and was held in the gym, which was specially decorated for the occasion. -
It is very evident that the Pep Club enjoyed a busy and lively season, and it must be said- of every mem-
ber that unfailing interest in the club played an important Part in the success of all undertakings.

MERSON said, "Language is a city to the building of which every human being brought a stone."
The object of the Latin Club is to study language by examining each stone, especially the corner
stone. The members of the Latin Club first became acquainted with the homes in which the people
lived who laid the corner stone of that mighty city. They found the Roman heating and lighting systems,
in contrast with those of today, very interesting. To the artistic students the types of furniture and the
elaborate decorations were appealing.
Since the Roman deities occupied such a great place in ancient literature, it was proper to acquaint the
club members with them. The gods and goddesses, parading before the students, revealed their identity
bv either their dress or their habits.
i The first meeting in the New Year was devoted to a discussion of a Roman boy's school life and young
manhood. True to sequence, the following month offered an extended knowledge of the Roman business
The crowning feature of the club's activities was the ldes of March banquet held March twelfth, where
the Roman food and the custom of reclining on couches attracted considerable attention.
,l.BaN'rLEY, MiSSTHOMSON,,I.BORGMIER, E-LATTIG
Funeral and burials, though a disagreable subject,
proved to be very interesting to the Latin Club members,
and what horrors were connected with the subject were
soon forgotten in the thought of the picnic, together
with the French Club, that was soon to follow.
- Every student who is privileged to be a member of
the Latin Club is benefited if not in many ways, this is
true at least in one res ect, namely, that he learns to
appreciate the origin an general history of the language
he is trying to speak perfectly-the city to which he
adds a stone,

E r of the French language. This was clone during the year I97.5-197.6 with French games, French plays,
1 1 and other interesting features.
I i . .... . .
4 A decidedly interesting and instructive feature of the season was an illustrated lecture by Mrs. Harry
Q 'Pix Wheat on "The Passion Play at Oberammergau in 19z7.."
In The following month the members of the club spent a Christmas in France with appropriate games, 5
fi"-V refreshments, and gifts. Soon after the beginning of the new semester, the club was increased by the ad-
, ,yt mission of many new members. The initiation, a new feature, caused much merriment. il
l, The great event, toward which the French Club members were at all times looking forward, took 1
5. place in April. It consisted of two French plays, which were staged very eHiciently by the members of the l
V club. Even students who understood no word of French took great interest in these plays. fl
. In order to please every member in the club, the program committee headed by the chairman, Beryl 3
f . . . -
fi Bennethum, strove to arrange a varied program for every meeting. The music, games, and refreshments lg
,-. ,f A I
l' ' were greeted with the hearty response of every club member.
' The French Club bade this school year goodby with Q
E a picnic together with its sister club, the Latin Club. ll
,f - The picnic, though not confined to French or Latin 5

The French Club, led by its ofhcers, closed a success- l

HE COMMERCIAL Club is a very beneficial club to those students who are striving for a place in
the business world. The meetings, which this year were held on the third Thursday of the month,
offered very helpful suggestions for these progressive students. At every meeting, the members of the
club had the opportunity of hearing either a prominent business man or an efhcient stenographer of this
city. This brought the members in actual touch with people who have reached the goal toward which
the students are striving. For the same purpose, the club sent letters to the business men of Freeport, asking
for suggestions for the betterment of the commercial department. The generous spirit of this organization
was visible in the presentation of a Thanksgiving basket to a poor, deserving family.
The Commercial Club experienced a very busy year. The most important undertaking was the District
Commercial Contest, held in Freeport the latter part of April. The commercial students of Freeport High
School, most of whom were members of the Commercial Club, revealed the excellent training that they
had received in the commercial department, and the help that had been given them by the commercial club.
Because the business world offers such a variety of professions, the business courses in Freeport High
School are in very great demand, and because so many people train themselves for this line of work, only
the best ones will actually succeed. The Commercial
Club aims to give its members the key to such success
and to show them the way that leads to the pinnacle

HOME ECONOMICS CLUB
HE HOME Economics Club, as the name signifies, is open only to the feminine element in Freeport
High School. Those girls interested in the sewing and cooking courses found their membership in
this club to be very helpful. Nearly every member had the opportunity of planning a part of the
programs, since the club adopted the custom of electing a new program committee for each month.
The popularity of this organization was due in part to their successful sales. Wieners were sold fre-
quently, but the crowning sale of the year was the F. H. S. arm-band sale. Also, to celebrate the 67 to O
victory over Rockford's football team, a matinee dance was sponsored.
Most of the meetings were of a nature that revealed the knowledge and skill of the students in cooking
or sewing. During the Christmas season, a box of Christmas cookies was sent to St. Vincent's orphanage
A cafeteria luncheon was given in january, and a Valentine luncheon in February.
The mothers, who are always interested in the domestic progress of their daughters, were given an
opportunity at the St, Patricks entertainment to see
for themselves what the domestic science courses and
the Home Economics Club were doing for the girls.
The resignation of Miss Normile was received with
regret by the Club members, but when her place
was filled by Miss Humphrey, the new advisor's pleasing
personality, and capable co-leadership with the other
splendid advisor, Miss Judy, soon restored the spirits
of the girls, and made it possible for them to close this
successful year with a smile.

ATIONAL HONOR SOCIETY
ROBABLY the most-prized achievement of the entire high school course is that of being elected to the
Freeport chapter of the National Honor Society. Its value is owing to the fact that it not only takes
the place in secondary schools which is held by the college Phi Beta Kappa, but that it goes a step
further, stressing a well-rounded personality.
In addition to the scholastic requirements, which are very high, a student must qualify for member-
ship in leadership, character, and service, This means that no person who is not well-rounded can be
elected to membership. The club is sponsored by Mr. Louis E. Mensenkamp, himself an University of
Illinois Phi Beta Kappa, and a leader of great merit. The faculty committee on election of members in-
cluded Principal L. A. Fulwider, Assistant Principal Allie Reitzell, Miss Courtney, Mr C. H. Cross,
and Mr. Mensenkamp. They have shown special wisdom in the selection of the following members:
Irene Taylor, Ruth Garman, Edwin Hall, David McNary, John Bentley, and john Swartz Qelected in their
junior yearDg and Nellie Goethe, Ruth Fredrichs, Louella Shouer, Rebecca Hoy, Ruth Seidel, Eleanor
Schmertman, Elizabeth Anderson, Wesley Brubaker, John Graham, and Tom Moers Celected in their
Senior yearD. The junior members of the class of 197.7 were also announced late in May.
That the society is not dead wood was clearly proved
by its successful activities, the most unusual of which
was the phenomenal library book drive sponsored by its
members, when the previous record was more than
doubled through their zealous efforts. A luncheon in
March, at which D. P, E, Belting ofthe University of
Wisconsin spoke, was another successful venture, and the
well-arranged district tournament programs yet another.
It is no wonder that the students consider belonging to
the society no empty honor.

CHILD LABOR TEAM
Standing: RICHARD YOUNGBLOOD, RICHARD MALONE, CoACH IMMEI., WILBERT Samet, MARVIN MEIER
Sitting: EUGENE PFILE, ELIZABETH WIEDENHOFT, RUTH FREDRICHS, TOM MQERS
LL THE victories Won by Freeport High School this year were not athletic
ones. It is a great thing to have a national champion football team and a state
champion basket ball one, but when to these can be added two winning debate
teams the school can be considered a well-rounded one.
So many candidates responded to Mr. Jones' call for debaters that it was necessary
to have tryouts to determine the best. Two teams were chosen, one to debate on
child labor, and the other on the Supreme Court's power of declaring laws uncon-
The team which debated on the question, "Resolved: that the Congress be given
power by a two-thirds vote to reenact legislation declared unconstitutional by the
Supreme Court," was composed of the following: Negative-Jane Wilson, Fred
Kirkman, Orlo Williams, Alby Foy, Affirmative-Alice jephson, Ted Hall, Ruth
Seidel. This team was to have only one debate-that with Rockford-but they soon
discovered that they had to work just as hard as the "child labor" crew.
The "Court" team's debate was a success, for they won both here and at Rock-
ford. The affirmative proved that the makers of the Constitution never intended the
Supreme Court to have its present power, that the Court has misused its power, and
that Congress would not do so. The negative disproved these same points, and both
sides convinced two of the three judges. The affirmative team, debating before the
local assembly after school on a Thursday, drew the largest Crowd ever to attend a
debate in Freeportgexcluding the one between Lincoln and Douglas. CThe only draw-
back was that the crowd had to be there if they wanted good grades in English the
Especial credit, however, must be given to the Child Labor team. They were
entered in the State debating league, and came through with many honors. The

district rivals, Polo, East Dubuque, and Dakota, were at no time able to defeat both
the negative and the affirmative squads, the results of the two debates being as follows:

Freeport affirmative, 1, East Dubuque negative, I.
Freeport negative, 3, East Dubuque aHirmative, o.
Total: Freeport, 85 opponents, 4.
This was sufficient to give us the district championship. The teams were made
up of the following students: Affirmative: Eugene Plile, Ruth Fredrichs, Marvin
Meier, Richard Malone, Qalternate.D
Negative: Tom Moers, Elizabeth Wiedenhoft, Wilbert Seidel, Richard Young-
The teams proved respectively that the states were and were not controlling
child labor, that child labor is and is not a terrible blight on our fair land, and that
the proposed amendment would and would not be practicable.
While we give all due credit to the teams, we must not forget the coaches. Mr.
Jones got us away to a fine start, and Mr. lmmel brought us through to a strong finish.
It must have used up a great deal of their patience, trying to whip the original squad
into a crew of finished speakers, but they succeeded in so doing. The teams were
benefited by the friendly aid of their leaders, and were thereby enabled to win their
arguments. There is a well-known motto which asks about the character of home
without a mother, but it is even harder to imagine our debate teams without Mr.
lmmel and Mr. Jones. With them, we were winners, without them, we leave it to
the imagination! There would have been nothing for this editor to write, and nothing
for the school to talk about in regard to debating.

SoPHoMoRE RAToR1cAL CONTEST
HE SCPHOMORE Oratorical Contest was held in the assembly on May 7.1.-the last oratorical contest
in the old school, and one of the best, When we Seniors entered school, it was customary for three
boys and three girls to take part in the contest. Some of us remember with pride that it was in our own
oratorical that the idea of eight contestants first saw the light of day. But in this, the last of them all
to be held in the old assembly, there were hve boys of almost equal merit, so that the contestants this
year were nine in number.
Such being the case, it is a great compliment to the speakers that no one in the audience grew tired
before the end of the last oration, but listened with eager interest to the masterpieces being recited. The
winners were deserving of their honors, but they met with a strong competition.
The customary procedure was adopted of having the boys give orations and the girls readings. The
voices of the speakers were unusually good, and gave great promise for the school's future contests and
debates. Marguerite Bauch and Robert Hayes won first honors.
Perhaps the only people who did not enjoy everything about the contest were the judges, for they
had a very hard decision to make. The sophomores can be congratulated on having nine such speakers.
They were very easy to understand, and spoke with an assurance not often found in practically raw material.
They seemed perfectly at home on the stage, and their gestures were plain and not too multituclinous. They
were not of the school of hand-talkers in which the French and Italians are so prominent, but their few
gestures ranked them beside those masters of the difficult art.
A public speaker gets a great deal of enjoyment out of his school life. Many of our students fear to
go out for oratorical contests because "They are so much work" or "l'd get scared stiff up on that plat-
form." Some few have that brand of nervefjust as truly nerve as any physical courage, although mani-
festing itself in a different waysand it is these students who are the leaders in their class activities, es-
pecially if they can overcome handicaps of poor voice and awkwardness sufficiently to win, or place in
contests. Some students are naturally gifted for public speaking, but they, too, can get much benefit out
of the friendshi and instruction of the coaches, articularl if the are willin to do so.

Certainly these nine speakers give great promise of some fine leaders for the class of 1918.
The sophomore oratorical contest is the lirst real activity any class sponsors, and when it "goes over'
in such a scintillating fashion the school need not worry for its future activities,
Music for the contest was furnished by Gertrude Krieg, one of the most gifted students in school,
who was especially good on that afternoon.

SENIOR MANTLE SPEECH W
! ' E, THE GRADUATING class of 1916, having crossed the
, current of high school activity, are about to place our foot upon ii
2 , the next stepping stone, which will bring us a step closer to the
shore of our destination. Four years we have been preparing ourselves H
, for this important step. We are still far from our goal in life, but our I Q
new high school training is enabling us to enter the world with courage and ,
if V hope, and will help us in the future over the difficult problems which 'rj
if Y may confront us. ' ' If W
ll' With the help of our instructors and by the splendid cooperation ,lu
' 1 lf of the underclassmen, we have received an all-round education, having l. I,
f 1 made use of the wonderful opportunities of learning, and having taken l'
W an active interest in the affairs of our school. We have struggled 9 I
" 4 through various difficulties to maintain and also to exceed the prec- t '
1 .A edents established by former classes. Keenly does this class feel the A 5'
1 1' great distinction of being the last class to be graduated from the old X l
, high school building. With the passing of the class of 1916, we must 1 ,' ,,
W 1 also say goodbye to this time-honored structure, where some of our fi' 3
l ii RUTH SEIDEL parents have studied, where we have studied-a building which has l lf.
been the fountain of knowledge for years. .gf
I I Just as the class of 1916 fills the last page in the history of this old building, so the class of 1917 will Y Y'
'l occupy the first page in the history of the new Freeport High School. Juniors, it is your duty to establish Q
'Q a precedent for that new building. During the following year, you will have all possible conveniences, K V,
S ' and the difficulties which have obstructed the ath of our class and former classes will have been removed, Y 'P
l P f 3
, if In bestowing this mantle upon you, we are closing the first volume of this memorable history, and you
y are opening the second. The title of the second volume depends upon your record. This mantle bears a A,
I' if great message to the class of 1917. With it, we bestow upon you the responsibilities of every senior class fi
. l . , , '
' if and the good wishes of every graduate for a successful accomplishment of all undertakings. Be ever mindful 1
,V 'J of the fact that "Perseverance brings success." Never lose courage. Remember, you will never reap the W
1,9 benefits from your high school experience, if you don't plant the seed from which they may grow. Strive l i
i fl diligently, and bend every effort to mark your class with the success enjoyed by all previous classes. Our 1
'll hearts will ever be with you. ix J.

H l . . ' i I
l, OR THREE years of our all too short high school life, our gradua- is
l. tion has been our ultimate goal. As the class preceding us, you
have been our model, whose achievements, in glowing pages of ' Q
f il F. H. S. history, we have but one year to attempt, if possible, to attain i 1
or better. I l-
2 i' We feel that we have been wise in choosing our model, for have you '
not won battles with overwhelming victories? Among your victories 1
E., is and decisive successes, are those in scholarship, character, leadership,
i drama, and, one of the most spectacular, in athletics, There has never ' A
'L L been a class to graduate from Freeport High School that has deserved x 1
3 more to be chosen as an ideal.
i I But your battles are not won. Your next battle will be a hand to A
by hand conflict with the problems of life. The victory in this case will
be the striving to the summit in business, higher schooling and home If
ig life. We trust that we may show you our wishes for strength and g
X. success in your next encounter by relieving you of the fear that your l Af
X K: splendid achievements will be undone or even laid to rest. Do not let
' this Worry you. Your records will be carried over from the last year ROBERT PRESCOTT ' ff-
' ' of the old school, and will serve as an introduction to the foundation of '
'T 'EY the history of our new school. This introduction will serve as a pilot to the class of '17, the first to I
", graduate from the new school. 1 'i
fly We, the Juniors, in the one year yet remaining before us, will direct all our energies in the fulnllment
3 ', of our promise. We will strive to carry on your work, and to supply leaders in the ofhces where yours ,lil
l have been graduated into the outside world. We juniors feel that we shall have accomplished a great deal 1 .Q
l' if, in the next year, we can set forth such an ideal to the underclassmen as you have set forth to us. Our X 1
1' ' past record indicates that we can be true to our promise, and so set a standard to the following classes. 5'
l Seniors, we realize that without your friendly support, our activities would not have been a glamorous si fl
success. Without your support, we realize that our own Junior Carnival and our play might have been W
,' I I less successful. We hope that you will not forget the banquet in your honor, as we never shall. It is only W ai
l E" by this banquet, that we can show our appreciation of your support. ffl
lx In the last three years we have acquitted ourselves of our duties in a very creditable fashion, we are
I sure. With this firm foundation and the ideal ever before us, we, the class of 1917, feel ourselves amply
gl equipped to take upon our shoulders the mantle you have bestowed upon us. if

O YOU remember the happy-go-lucky little kids that made up the 'l l 1-
Freshman Class of 'Twenty-three? Do you remember their fierce if X fl Q
determination to make their class the greatest ever known to , ' 3,
Freeport High School, and how they meant to, win so many individual . .fl .
honors for themselves and, incidentally, for their class? Tonight the M in
race they set out to run is practically ended, and nothing we can say or W f mga
do now will have any effect on the final accounting of the record of the
Class of 'Twenty-six. We can still add to Freeport High's reputation
in the outside world,but the class, as a school unit,is ceasing to function.
If it were possible for the Freshmen of 'Twenty-three to live again, V ai
. . . ' aff ,
would we meet them tonight with an open conscience? Would our if Q!
young selves grin in friendly appreciation of the work we have done, l,
or would they be amazedly crestfallen?
We believe that our class has made as good a record as any, but
would that satisfy those idealistic youngsters? Has any one in school W 5'
7 , fulfilled all this Freshman ambitions? We wonder, and doubt. lg
Do ou remember how those awestruck oun sters a ed at l 'I 1
EDWIN HALL Y . . X g g P ' ,f ,lj
the first presentation of athletic letters that we witnessed? Every boy ii N gg
resolved to win one for himself in the years to come, but many of us have no such adornment for our sweaters lg ,ji
today. 1 Al
Then, on the first Cup Day, did not every one of us resolve to make an earnest effort for such an award?
Pitifully few have succeeded in gratifying that ambition. W .fit
. V .fl
For our ideals of school life were high. Eff
We had high ideals of life, too, but those are not yet impossible to gratify. That code of fair, honor- E
able living has been retained. ,
Don't lose it, Seniors! That code and those ideals are sacred things, Adhere to them. If, by any 1
chance, the Freshmen of 'Twenty-three would be ashamed of you today, take care that the Senior of 'Twenty- ' 5
six need never be so. Don't slump, now that school is done. Remember yourselves as you are tonight,
and adhere to that memory, Don't fail to advance, but be sure you don't recede. .

The Old Building
THE HISTORY OF FREEPORT HIGH SCHOOL
cc VER-CROWDEDH-that's the word which expressly applies to our present high school building
which was built for four hundred students, and which has been filled to more than twice its
capacity for the last six years. Yet, when we look at the dingy "over-crowded" building, it
arouses our emotionsg especially so, since this is the last year that Freeport High School students will be
crowded behind its doors. Now, because of the increased number of students, Freeport's long cherished
hope for a new high school is about to be realized, and it has, in some respects-by the football stadium
and the gymnasium-already become a reality.
Picture to yourself a square brick building, surmounted by a white cupola wherein an old bell swings,
with grounds enclosed by a close, wooden fence, intended to confine all inside strictly from depredations
on the surrounding inhabitants. Inside the grounds are a tree or two and a well, the latter of which,
whatever may have been its former usefulness, had long outlived it, even in 1860. Two doors open from
the front of the building, the boys entering at the right, and the girls at the left. Down stairs are two rooms
occupied by the younger boys and girls, who look with envy and awe upon the students who calmly climb
the stairs, day by day, to those mysterious fields of higher learning. The dressing rooms consist of hooks
driven into the walls around the landing. Such was the first Freeport High School.
The Freeport High School history began in 1831, when this building, which was known for years as
the old "Union School," was erected on South Galena Avenue. It was afterwards razed, in order to make
room for the present building. The old "Union School" was for years used as a high, middle, and grammar
school. Henry Freeman was principal of the high school, and also superintendent of the grade schools
at this time.
The board of education in 1877, wasicomposed ofjudgej. M. Baileyhjacob Krohn, and Frederic Bartlett,
and they decided upon the erection ofa new high school building. This building, now known as the First
Ward School, was used as the high school until the erection of the present building. The First Ward School
soon became over-crowded, and, since the location was unsatisfactory, a new building fthe old part of
the present buildinga was erected.
1896 marked a new and different change in the Freeport High School history, for the "Stella," the
First year book, was published at that time.
Previous to 1901, a three year course had been maintained, however, a four year high school course
was made possible this year.
In 1905 a special election was called to vote upon an addition to the high school building. The vote
was carried by a large majority, indicating that the townspeople were backing the school then, just as they
are at present. This addition was completed in 1906.
A manual training department was established in 1904, at the suggestion of Florence Knowlton, who
donated the equipment, The domestic science and art departments were introduced in 1906. The commercial
department was installed, at the suggestion of the Freeport business men, in 1909. QMost of the foregoing
facts are obtained from Principal L. A. Fulwider's Hirtary of Sreplaenron Caunly.D
The Freeport High School has been on the accredited list of the North Central Association of Colleges
and Secondary Schools since IQOG. It was recently made known, also, that Freeport High School is on the
highest accredited list of schools in the United States.

THE HIGH SCHOOL NEWS STAFF
INCE the cost of publication of the Weekly Polaris made its continuance last semester an impossibility,
the Freeport Journal Standard was used as a medium through which the students, as well as the
townspeople, might be informed about the high school events. The plan of hlling a page twice
weekly, on Wednesdays and Saturdays, with high school news, met with a great deal of success, and Worked
effectively throughout the school year
At the beginning of the first semester, the News Writing class, of which Harriet Wallahan, Ruth
Fredrichs, Katherine Gable, Dick Hayner, Eugene Lattig, and Eugene Chitty were members, took the
responsibility of the editorship of the Freeport High School News, each in turn acting as editor-inrchief
Louella Shouer, Beryl Bennethum, Leona Nesbit, and William Stover assisted this staff. Miss Cravens
made a very capable faculty advisor for the work of the group.
The second semester's work was even more successful than the first, because the class was enlarged.
The new students formed the reportorial staff, while the advanced members and Anna Sweeney, a post-
graduate and former reporter for the Weekly Polaris, made up the editorial board, and took turns acting
as editors. A typing staff was also appointed. The writing was done as laboratory work for the class,
and practically every type of news story studied in the classwas experimented with, and appeared at some
time during the year in the paper. Especially successful was the Poets' Corner, where some of the best
poetry written by students during the year was published.
' We appreciate the journal Standard's courtesy in
tending us this privilege during the year. The second
Semester's Staff follows:

CRAMBERRY LITERARY SOCIETY f
i HIS page will bring back memories of the things we did as Cramberries. Our Club has completed f
a very successful and worthwhile year, under the leadership of Irene Taylor, president, and Miss l
1 Eileen White, advisor. Rebecca Hoy was vice-president and Louella Shouer, secretary-treasurer l
and historian. I
, . . ,.... . . . 1
This is a girls honorary literary society, to which only girls having an average of 85 in all subjects i
are eligible. It can well be said that we have achieved our aim this year-to develop an appreciation of 2
literature as well as to further an interest in scholarship, and strengthen the ties of friendship among the ,
senior girls. ' I
A fitting literary feature of the September meeting was an animated calendar. Each month was repre-
sented by a girl in costume, who recited an original verse. I
The October meeting was equally literary and delightful. The program consisted of a Goblins' Con-
vention. Among the delegates were the Three Witches of Macbeth, Germaulken of the Underworld,
and Riley's "Little Orphant Annie." -
At the November meeting there prevailed a true Thanksgiving atmosphere, which was accentuated -
by puritan costumes. Songs and Thanksgiving stories by Nathaniel Hawthorne were featured,
As their bit of service, the club entertained the occupants of the County Home with a Christmas party .
and entertainment. We enjoyed it as much as they did, especially with Mr. Moon as jolly, old St. Nick,
who distributed candy, nuts, and a gift to each man and woman.
In January the club was escorted by several well-
United States. 3
2 In February we met for luncheon in Miss White's
l room. At this meeting we had as our guest Miss Flora I
l Guiteau, who gave us a most delightful and inspiring talk Y
I on poetry. i
I Irish songs, readings, and impressions of famous Irish
authors and poets made our March meeting one of the
most worthwhile and entertaining of the year,
Q At the April meeting we were hostesses to the junior
I girls eligible to membership. A Mark Twain program was
i followed by a social time.
I The last and most delightful event ofthe year was the
5 May Breakfast, which was held at the Y. W. C. A. The
I rooln was gay with pastel colors, spring flowers, favors, if
I and daintily appointed tables. This marked our farewell
as active Cramberries. R. Hoy, L. Si-iouiza, I. TAYLOR, Miss Wi-uriz

THE SAMPLER or 1916
Senior Poem, By RUTH Fnamucrrs
As the wee maid in her sampler Wove her quaintly lettered pattern,
So we Seniors wove our sampler in the dear old Freeport High School,
As with care the woof she fashioned, strong to hold the bright-hued
So our Freshman year we labored, just to gain a good foundation.
And, as Sophomores, care was taken that the threads should be
Junior year the threads grew brighter, and the weaving hne in
Senior year the pattern broadened to its hard-attained perfection.
See those tiny careful stitches? Some are crooked, but what of it?
Those, as eager, unskilled Freshmen, once we Wove into our sampler.
Bolder, stronger are these next rows-those are our attempts as
Showed our power and our talent in our oratory contest.
Then, as the maiden chose the colors, many-hued and soft of texture,
U So, our junior year the colors and the texture glowed and softened.
Then our play, 'AThe Whole Town's Talking," made the whole town
shake with laughter.
And our "Farmers' Fair"-there never was a carnival so splendid.
Too, our Junior-Senior banquet! Ne'er will there be such another.
CBolder, brighter grew the pattern which the maiden's samplers mirroredl
In our Senior year, the pattern reached a hard-attained perfection,
And this year outshone all others, for the leaders grew in numbers,
Sixteen were elected members to our group of honor students.
Every class event went over, each class member did his share,
Working well with one another, as the sampler's colors blended,
In our Senior year each person worked with harmony and vigor.
And our victories were many-all were glorious and outstanding.
On each team were many Seniors-wour most-honored Senior classmates.
Then, because of our successes, on our long-sought graduation
Did the pattern reach its climax, so that, as we linger o'er it,
We see nothing but the perfect, softly blended lines of colors-
Nineteen-Twenty-six's record in the walls of Freeport High School.
MOTHER GOOSE LIBRARY RHYMES
Hickory Dickory Dock,
It's two by the Library clock.
The students pour in,
To read they begin.
Hickory Dickory Dock.
Margaret Davenport, our good librarian,
She knows good books,
just by their looks,
Wire, briar, limber, lock,
They're books in one flockf
One went east, and one went west,
But she kept for the "libe" the book that was best.
There was a librarian who lived in a shoe,
And had so many books she didn't know what to do.
She told all the children to come there to read,
And then, the old shoe was a tight fit indeed. MISS DAVENPORT

By FRANCES NEB
ERHAPS I had better start by telling you what 'Anext" may
pertain to. In short, it may be attached to many things:
barber shops, beauty parlors, restaurants, ticket sales and
numerous other places, but the "next" I'm going to explain about
is the one used by all the teachers of Freeport High School. There is
not one teacher that has not used that word more than 5oo times a
month. It is very popular with them, but not so with the student
Did you ever come to English class unprepared to give an oral
theme, and knowing that your average as it stands to date is 73, or
to a history class without having read your "Weekly News Review,"
or to shorthand without having studied for your monthly test? I
believe you have, if you are an average student. I'm going to describe my feelings, as I enter senior
literature, not fully prepared to give oral memory lines.
Upon Hrst entering the room, I ask this one and that one whether or not he knows his memory lines,
and if we are going to write them or recite orally. As soon as I have learned that we are to have oral
recitation, and that everyone else has thoroughly prepared his lines,I notice a queer, shaky feeling in my
knees. Now the bell has rung, and class begins. Miss ....,..... now states that she is going to start
at the bottom card, and work upward. Well, that's not so bad, because there are quite a few persons be-
tween letter "Y" and letter After seven or eight have recited, she decides to take some cards from
the middle of the stack. Right there I begin to get nervous and fldgety. Three names ahead of mine!
The question that enters my mind about this time is whether or not to recite. Two names left before me!
lt's up to me to recite to raise that low average. I might as well try, at any rate. One name left. No,
I guess I'll not recite today, because I'll probably stutter and stammer up in front, which will be very em-
barrassing for me. Wait until after school,-but that will take ten lines off. Oh, well, I'll try to make
a bluff at it. "Next", My turn, now. I wish that queer feeling would leave me. I wish the bell would
ring, it's time. I--Oooooh! What a relief! Saved for the day! What's that Miss .......... 's saying?
Oh, yes-"We'll -finish the rest of the memory lines tomorrow."
What will tomorrow bring? Will it be another hour's misery, or will I come prepared? Oh, well,
live for the present, and let tomorrow come when it will.

WITH SOPHIA LAGERLOFF
JUNIOR .QHORT STORY
By HARRIET WALLAIIAN
EANNIE MORRISON'S apartment, with its modern step-
saving, time-saving, space-saving air, resembled a mechanical
image of my friend. For Jeannie was such a modern, capable
person-too capable, in fact-despite her short skirts and chic bob,
that, in the newspaper office where she worked, Cshe was on the
staff of The Timesl she had earned the nickmane "'I'acks. " Jeannie,
in her role of a newspaper reporter, had faced life, and had turned
away again, disillusioned and a trifle cynical. She was old beyond
My gaze rested upon her, seated at the desk, writing swiftly, but
with absolute concentration on the copy of her latest society article.
And that brought out another queer fact about Jeannie. Dis-
illusioned she might be, but she had a friendly, individual way of writing up a musical, or a tea, or a
luncheon that made her readers all over the country eager for more of her accounts of the social life of the
famous "Four Hundred." Suddenly she straightened her shoulders, and turned around in her chair.
"Done!" she announced, in that full, throaty voice, which catches quickly when she speaks. "I'm
famished. You'II be a good old dear, and make me some hot chocolate, and get out some of those tiny,
iced cakes, won't you? Please." u
lwas hungry, myself, and the thought of a lunch appealed to me, but I was also interested in Jeannie's
"I will-on one condition," I countered. "Tell me all about the musicale, or whatever it was that
you are writing up."
Jeannie laughed softly.
"Bargaining as usual," she accused lightly. "But, if you will do all the work, I will assuredly sit
here at my ease, and talk to you."
I immediately acquiesced, so Jeannie settled herself in the most comfortable chair in the room, and
"People say that America is the Melting Pot of the world," she ruminated, "but, in my opinion, the
subways constitute most of the Melting part. About two weeks ago, I was coming home on the subway,
when I noticed an interesting looking woman across the aisle from me. She was dressed simply, but with
the charming simplicity characteristic of only the true French modiste. Her appearance was rather in-
con gruous on the crowded train, but at the same time her well-bred manner made it appear quite the most
natural thing imaginable that she should be there. She appeared keenly observant of her surroundings,
and once I felt her eyes watching me. She soon left the train, however, she left behind a disturbing impres-
sion upon my mind.
"When I next met her, it was at a musicale given by Lawrence Bendel at his studio. She was exqui-
sitely gowned in a clingy lace afternoon frock, and appeared to be well known among the socially elite
of the guests. I had been assigned to write up the affair, and was standing with some other society writers,
whenlsaw her covertly watching me. She spoke to the man beside her, and at once I knew that I was
the object of her conversation. Our glances met, and she smiled with a charming friendliness. Later in

N I the afternoon, we were introduced, and I learned that she was Sophia Lagerloif, a Russian opera star.
l I She sang once-her voice is a rich mezzo-soprano-a selection from "Martha." Her voice won me at 1
2 once for her friend. l If
' ' "Although I knew that she was casually interested in me, still I did not expect her next move, she .
I offered to take me uptown with her in her limousine. It was a luxurious motor-there were delicate I
l 1 American Beauty roses in univuely designed vases, and her chauffeur was well trained. My curiosity was I
' ' quite open by now, and she was quick to notice it. She smiled, and soon she began to speak. She said
that she had been interested in my personality ever since we had recognized one another on the subway. N
E Then she began to tell a queer, exciting tale of her life in Russia-how, during the Bolshevist war, she had X
.gnfira been forced to flee from the Royal Opera House into Belgium, and from there into Franceg how she had . ,
W had been unable to secure an engagement in Paris, and so had come to America, with hopes of being able wi'
Il C to secure a contract with the Metropolitan Opera company. Then I noticed the first signs of an ulterior IRI
motive in her supposed friendship. I was on the staff of a large paper-The Times, wasn't it?-and perhaps W A
" a little publicity on her past life might-deprecatingly-might interest the producers, yes? I . I
up Q "You see, she had been trying to 'work' me for what she could gain." Jeannie laughed bitterly. 'fl'
' l "And I was nearly taken in, too. Perhaps now you can understand why I am so bitter and disillusioned- ' , ,
lf l all of my illusions have been destroyed." With another cynical laugh, Jeannie rose to her feet. l
, , ,
I I was silent for a few moments. :The clock on the mantel ticked loudly. N ,
' "Did you mention Sophia Lagerloff in your write up?" I demanded at last. A
, K ,
I 1, I "Yes-I said all she wanted me to. I had to. Because, you see, at first I would have liked to have ' .H
. , been her friend," Jeannie declared simply. ' if I'
There was silence again, broken only by the loud ticking of the clock on the mantel. I I II.

ELEVEN DATES A WEEK AND GEIJUNK SUNDAES TWICE A DAY, IS
SECRET CF THIS YEAR'S BASKETEER'S SUCCESS, S0 WE HEAR
Low-Down of a Coach
Since I am the star reporter, for the F. H. S.
Wheeze, I thought it my Christian duty to find
out how to coach State Championship teams.
I called on Patrick Holmes one morning, and
found him with a bottle of Stay-Comb in one
hand and a quart of Vazoline in the other. He
wore a pair of orange and green striped plus-
fours and a purple silk sweater.
"Say, Pat," said I, "what do you do to be
a good coach?"
"Well," says Pat, "all you have to do is to
know how to treat the boys. That is the big
secret. just let them have their own way and
feel that they are so important that you can't
get along without them. Now, there is
Herbie Stimpert one of the best players that
ever wore an orange and black basket ball suit.
Now, Herbie came to me the night before the
Rockford game, and said, 4Pat, I have a date
tonight with my best girl, and I don't want
to be late, so I won't come out to practice.
Of course I said for him to go right ahead. If
I hadn't, he would have been tough, and
would have taken his tin dishes and gone home

Football Team Entertained
Dec. 5, 197.5-Freeport High School's
national and international championship foot-
ball team was very nobly entertained by the
admiring Pittsburgh maidens, who tendered
them a luscious Pink Tea party, held at the
Smoka Sig Sorority House following a delight-
ful game of tag with the Pitt youths today.
The dining room was decorated with corn-
stalks, forget-me-nots, dumb-bells, and with
Bunny Paul, who was the life of the party,
entertaining all the girls with his pleasing
personality, It is said he found his ideal girl,
and that she is a sight for smoked glasses. Her
name is Minnie, and she surely is a cute little
trick, with light blue eyes and a wealth of
,It has been reported that Herbie Kicth was
bored to tears, and he admits that it was his
most embarrassing moment. While he was
being served by one of the young ladies, he
accidentally bumped her arm, and in return
received a shower of iced cakes. Oh, well4-
heroes are all made, not born.
Professor Cross Leaves
The citizens of Freeport are swimming in a
sea of trouble. Ever since the day Captain
Hozzen Feffer talked to us on his flight to the
Arctic in search of the North Pole, Prof.
Charles Hiram Cross has been living in an
atmosphere of an unquenchable desire to travel.
It has been reported to one of the editors of
this "Wheeze" that Captain Hozzen Feffer and
Prof. Cross are leaving for the Pole June 18, in
Captain Hozzen FefTer's schooner, "Gliding
Gertief' Alas, though, this is a brave and
noble undertaking on our professor's partfto
sacrihce his time, and, yes, probably his life
for the sake of science.
His flock which he is leaving behind at the
High School, have presented him with a fur-
lined pair of ear muffs, and a box of lump sugar
for the Polar bears and Eskimos.
Mr. Rubendall Returns
Mr. Willard Rubendall, prominent Com-
mercial Geography instructor of Freeport
High School, has just returned from Siberia.
Mr. Rubendall has been doing relief work in
that country, teaching the women to use the
dictagraph and the men to play the cornet.
We See By The Papers ----
We see by the papers that 7.3 can live as
cheaply as one! We often hear, especially
about this time of year that two can live as
cheaply as one, but two and 7.3 are rather far
The sentence that upset us this morning was:
"On a housekee ing allowance of Sic, Mrs.
Emily Lucas feedrs 7.3 children and is happy."
Of course that was in England and perhaps
h. c. l. is not being worried about over there.
We know lots of people that can't exist on
S10 a day.
Ten dollars a week gives Mrs. Lucas forty-
seven cents for one meal or just two cents per
How would you like to have two cents for
each meal? On your .47. a week you could buy
a box of toothpicks. Toothpicks are very
essential you know. That would leave you. 37.

HELPS TO STUDY
Don't study when you are tired,
Or when you have anything else to do.
Don't study when you are happy.
Or that will make you blue.
Don't study in the day time,
Don't study in the night,
But study at all other times,
With all your main and might.
Kennebunkshire, June 7, 199ofAlas, fellows
the countryside of Kennebunkshire has passed
an unjust act unto its fellow boys. All the
younger male generation has gone coo-coo,
and many have died of fright. The Ladies Aid
Society of the 19th Order of Izah have passed
a law against the use of Drop Sox!
The law Was passed by Miss Iama Load. If
this law is forced, we must all admit that there
ain't no Santa Claus. This is surely a bold and
treacherous act, and the city should strongly
oppose it. We must all think of the hard-
ships and privations we will have to endure
Has anyone the right or privilege to deprive
us of this one luxury? No! Why? Because
this is a free country, and all men are created
equal except for their incomes. Fellowmen,
be your age, and stand up for your rights.
Show the proper Christian Spirit and abide for
The whistle blew,
As Herbie threw.
The ball went through-
The score-plus two!
CThere's more truth than poetry in that.D
THE SCREEN IN REVIEW
"A Factory Girfr Romance"
CBy May Iron-e'sD
Some say that they are the least of our
troubles. We now have them, and what are
we going to do with them? If we didn't have
them, what would we do without them?
Some are pretty, while others, not so good.
Some wear their dresses short, some wear them
long. Some like blue while others prefer red.
Some like to ride, and some like to walk.
Some wear their hair long, some have it bobbed
One day their hair is blonde, while the next
day it is brunette. If Barbara Freitche were
living today she would say,"Shoot if you will,
this old gray head, I can always buy henna
to make it red."

Huge throngs have been viewing Sam U.
Ellis' vast production, "A Factory Girl's
Romance," at the Dolin Theater. It is one of
the most lavish, stupendous, magnificent, and
dramatic productions that has ever been pro-
duced or filmed.
The story is of a pathetic nature, and has
touched the big warm hearts of the public.
Maud, a little stenographer, has been thrown
out upon this cruel cold world. She is an
orphan and a poor woiking goil. Thus, we
hnd our poor Maud all alone.

One cold, dark, bitter evening, we find our
little Maud without the price of a dough-nut
hole. She has walked so far, that she is suffer-
ing with sunken arches. As she is walking by
a lunch wagon, the sight of all the food makes
her so weak, that she faintsi-! right into
the arms ot' a young man.
The man proves to be Ezra Spencer, the
oFlice boy for Mr. Stoops, and Ezra tells Maud
that Mr. Stoops wants a new stenographer.
This is sweet music to Maud's ears, and at
eight-thirty the next morning we find Maud
a woiking girl.
Much credit is bestowed upon Miss Kennison
for her remarkable portrayal of Maud, and Mr.
Skelley was very human in the title role of
The Teacher's Guide
When I went out of the theater, the DOR-
MAN let me out. I was CROSS because I had
only a NICOLL. I had to walk home. As I
sauntered through the streets, I saw some
people who wished they were in theirHOLMES
lying on the DAVENPORT. The MOON
shone down on me as ZIEBOLD KIDD crept
up and knocked me on the LID. I turned
WHITE and discovered that there was a
reward out for the robber. I got the money
and married my JUDY, who thought she loved
JOHNSON better than me. But, she said she'd
make a "HUM"PHREY me, and she wrote
books because she REITZELL those things.
NEW GAME: "KID THE WAITRESSH
The players sit in a line on the stools, and

Low-Down of a Coach
CCantinu4'd from page 1725
"As you see, system is the whole thing,
There is Doc Neidigh, the best full back that
ever played. The day we played West Aurora,
I happened to go into the Sugar Bowl, and
there I found Doc. He was about to eat three
Gedunk Sundaes. Did I care? No. Why? There
is only one thing a player needs, and that is
"Take this man Grell, who can run so fast
that he has to wait for his shadow. He insists
on wearing pink hair-bows on his wrists when
"Or look at Captain Johnny Bentley. If
John didn't have a big piece of pie or cake
before he played a game, the ship would
surely sink. Or there are Howie Broughton
and Ralph Ruthe. They attend the Gedunkers'
dances, instead of coming to practice, and it
keeps them in fine trim.
"Of course, I am heartily in favor of matinee
dances training season. Whenever any organi-
zation wishes to give one, all it has to do is to
come to me, and I beg Mr. Fulwider to agree
to the party."
"How sim le it all sounds," I exclaimed.
"And what :fb you do to make the boys keep
in training?" I
A'That," declared Pat, "is the least of my
troubles. There is only one rule that I make
them obey, but I am very firm about that.
That rule is: every one in bed by three A. M.
I don't care how much they go around-just
so they get in home early." Dolin T,
A Boy's Composition on a Goose
The goose is a low, heavy-set bird, composed
of meat and feathers. His head rests on one
end and he sits on the other. He cannot sing
much on account of the dampness in the
moisture in which he lives. There ain't no
between to his toes and he carries a toy balloon
in his stomack to keep him from sinking. A
goose has two legs and they are set so far
back on his running gear that they come pretty
near missing his body. Some geese when they
get big are called ganders. Ganders just loaf,
eat and go swimming. If I were a goose I'd
rather be a gander.
FREEPORT FAIRY TALES
Mr. Fulwider-"There will be no classes
this afternoon. One of the students tells me
you'd rather not come."
"These minimum essential tests really don't
Count. We just give them to entertain you,"
explained Miss Hancock.
"You can talk all you wish in my charge,"
said Mr. Rubendall, first hour.
"The Honor Society isn't anything really-
half the school belongs to it."
A PHOTOGRAPI-IER'S PHIT
It was midnight in the office, and ye "ED"
was full of gloom, as he searched among the
pictures, piled too high for standing room."
Why, oh why," he wailed in sorrow, "Tell
me, someone, tell me true, do the pictures get
all shuffled? I can' End them when they do."
Then his cheek grew pale and paler than
should be for one so young, and A'Ye Gods,"
the pale youth shouted, with a sagging jaw
and tongue. "It is found, ' he cried in joy,
and, not stopping the least bit, "Here's the
Picture!" And our hero fell a fainting in a fit.

That you're gone on Lucille.
Oh dear, this has gone to my bre!"
A Young man named Smith, his girl do,
Was thrown almost into a fo.
When his friends asked him why,
Smith returned, with a sigh,
"My dear Sheba, she gave me the mo!"
An Englishman, Percival Coffman,
Fell in love with our charming Ross Hoffman
But she gave him the gate,
For I heard him relate,
'Oh, that 'Offman girl told me, 'Go h off'
I seek in vain to find my muse-
And end in crying, "what's the use?
When teachers say to write a verse.
I can imagine nothing worse,
If this can get past their inspection,
Then I shall seek the "Poet's section."

They say our Young Bobby McNutt
Was as careful as Andy McNutt.
When the score was quite tight.
He would save his good sight
And would read it with both eyes half-shut!
Ofhce Notice: Lost: The Three Musketeers!
Oh! Dumas's characters are up to their old
tricks and running loose again!
That's the old fight!
Miss Lid's plea for a more personal touch in
themes received this response.
Attached to a theme one day: "As for the
personal touch, how's this? I admire your
new fur coat. Its richness gives me courage to
ask if you'll lend me my bank money next
Tuesday? I'm broke."
