During today's emergencies we may peer too far into the
future, disregarding our great debt to the past. Undoubtedly,
the world has felt the vital influence of the members of Free-
port's graduating classes throughout the years. They have
given us many conveniences that we now take for granted and
mention little even though we appreciate them. There is the
advancement made from the horse and buggy days to trains
and automobiles and from poorly equipped schools to numer-
ous and efficient ones designed for study and experimentation.
One contribution of immediate interest given to us by the past
is our Polaris, first published by the graduating class of 1905.
Many men and women on their way to fame and fortune
have passed through these very doors of F.H.S. For many of
us it has provided our last four years of formal education.
Some of our more fortunate students will go to college. -Some
of us will die unknown, unhonored, and unsungg others will
become leaders of the future. Much of what we become will
be due directly or indirectly to the influence of our teachers,
fellow-classmates, and to our admirable school system. How-
ever, we realize that many mistakes have been made that we,
the future generation, will have to correct and overcome, just
as we will make mistakes that posterity will have to repair.
With the future in view, the Polaris wishes to bow to the
past and express its deep appreciation for the advantages to
which we have fallen heir. This is our tribute to the past.

During the past year the number served in the cafeteria has been tripled
or quadrupled. Could it be they are saving their points at home, or is it
because the food is excellent? Besides the three women, Mrs. Alma Ben-
nett, Mrs. Margaret Hawes, and Mrs. Clara Albert, who prepare the food,
and Mrs. Rucker, who directs, there are forty-three student helpers. The
students do all the serving and they also assist in making sandwiches and
salads, and Wash and wipe dishes. A credit toward graduation and a free
meal is their recompense. Also, a cash bonus is paid each semester to
those who are not absent or tardy throughout the year.
Because of the installation of sound proofing in the ceiling of the cafeteria
during the summer vacation, eating is much more pleasant.
No doubt the deep freeze unit which has been installed is a great help in
providing fresh frozen vegetables and fruits. This unit has been connected
in the large storeroom.
The counter up in front serves as a place to which people who bring their
lunch supplement their lunch with milk, potato chips, and sandwiches.
You may think the mob is after candy, but confections are just as limited
there as anywhere. The delicious food, the agreeable surroundings, and
the nominal prices are all important factors in the success of our cafeteria.

We think that was a nice job Leo Krueger, Johnny Wright and Corky Mackert did on the
football team last fall. Don't you agree? Say, "Antonio" Smith, are you ever going to
wake up? That Fink boy and his buddies must like to call the girls. Eh, Jim? We hear
Kenny Datt is Miss Nelson's pet peeve sixth hour. C What did she do to deserve this?j It
looks as if Norma Staas likes "Stout"-hearted men. One person who's stepping up in the
world is Betty Reed-how old is she? Where does she come from? This is what some of
the "Eager Beavers" have been asking. Who is it that makes all the girls sigh ?-co'uldn't
be Dale Gramily? Say, Willis, "How's the weather up there?" Ninth hour algebra class
will certainly be dull when the little men in white coats catch up with Charles Butcher.
I f you see Laura Dean with a smile on her face, you'll know she's just seen Joe! Say,
Mac Howington, did you ever find out what "Hubby" meant? Who -are these boys that
Joel Stevens, presidentg Donna Wahler, vice
presidentg Neal Steinhoff, secretary-treas-
urerg Miss McHenry, Mr. Nicklas, advisors.
snap pictures wherever they go? Could be Jim Marshall and Bill LaVelle. Seems the
"Drippy Dozen" like to go to the show on Friday nights. If you don't believe us ask Don
Kronberg or Willie Williams. It looks as if Bob Higley is following in his brother's foot-
steps-a wolf of course! Flashy sweaters have become quite a fad, and Leonard Christen
is no exception. A "loving" I ??J brother and sister combination is Jo and Bob Ely. We
find Clara Scaros doesn't like crowded places, especially at the games. We hear Mopey
IJoel Stevensj got around quite a bit at the Sadie Hawkins dance. Neal too. Donna
Wahler is certainly doing her share of work for the freshman king and queen. Hey,
Maxey!! Why were you so glad when the freshman B's came up? Rockow, Rockow,
can't you control that temper of yours? Molly Rideout has pretty blonde hair-and it's
real, too. Joy Springer seems to have a liking for dogs, especially one certain? "Pooch."
Is it because Neal Steinhoyff wants a Southern drawl-l-l that he's leaving us for awhile?

Many grads to our king and queen, Betsy and Frank--we sure know how to pick 'em!!
Someone had better hang onto that Clinton Lenoir! He's gonna fly away if he doesn't
slow down his take-offs when he jitterbugs. Golly, John Youngs always walks around
with a slap-happy grin on his face-couldn't be that a junior could do this to a sopho-
more, could it? Say, Harlan Anderson really has rhythm when it comes to makin' music
jump! Elmer Schirmer's weakness-loud plaid shirts and Elgin. Your brotherly interest
is appreciated, "Tip" Hill. Phyllis DeVore says, "The taller the better." Didn't we hear
Joyce Kraft say, "La de da"? Barbara Pebler--our "Bobby sox" fan. You say your

alarm clock doesn't work, Ronald Jeffrey? I wonder why Lucy Nelson always likes that
piece-"Look Out, Jack." Strangers here this year-Mary Ellen Hoisington and Mar-
garet Stark-glacl to see ya!! Chuck Englehardt, Ken Wahler and "Bruno" Nelson seem
to have other interests-outside the sophomore class. You can tell that Katy Johnson loves
to dance by that look in her eyes. David Radcliffe thinks it's fun to have his trachea
fluctuate while giving a speech. Lois Kahl, pleeze tell the rest of us where you get your
brains. After you fill your head do you fill your pockets? You can always find Joe Daugh-
enbaugh downtown after school-it's just part of her daily routine. And of course, we
musn't forget our politician, Bob Eckert.

work at the dairy, Mary Ann. Convenient, to say the least. Did you find out What's Wrong
with the Dance, Bob? Shirley Gartman, you mathematical whiz-z-z you! "lt's all in the
way you interpret a problem, whether the answer is 32.2 or 30.95," say Russell Fertitta
and Merle Nelson. It can also affect the grade in the little black book. You guys should
know! Anna Lou and Irma were glad they prohibited paper drives this year 'cause then
they didn't have to run around during the middle of the night picking up papers off the
curb!! I still think you should be allowed to vote at 18," says debater Fritz. I guess

on the drums-and at a senior assembly, too! Don't you find it a trifle cool in Butch's

it's not altogether impossible. Golly, you're getting to be the traditional Anderson height,
Bob. Al fsighj Clark sure takes on a gob of girls at once! How do you manage, Al?
Joe, you should know by now it's almost impossible to break the Quaker habits of F.H.S.
All the cue-balls floatin' around this year, and Ken Youngblut and Jerry Rampenthal
proved to be no exceptions. Do you like to sandpaper desks, Led? Too bad if you don't.
Just 'cause you're a good typer, Mary Ethel-! So Jack Lubenow is the one this year,
girls?? Good 'noughl Roger, we just can't help admiring your flashy yellow and brown
tweed pants. We marvel at your strength, Mr. W ienand. He makes it across the ladder
in less than nine seconds. Smile when you say "Wunsch" is enough-huh, Gertie? Don't

slips of paper always floating between you and your friends?

There are quite a few things that the senior class does each year in the way of raising
money and having fun in high school. The biggest project of all is the printing of the
Polaris. All of the other things are done to raise money to publish it. The first big
event is the play. Everyone has a very good time and the students enjoy producing it.
The carnival is another one of the outstanding events of the season. All of the seniors
are on committees and each one does some one thing to make it a success and make
everyone have a good time. The senior boys are usually very active in sports.

As a result of split-second timing I hit my seat

to close our books. She picks out the dumbest

question like,"Who was Archduke Ferdinand ?"

When you think of the color blue, you think of a warm summer sky, of a clear, cool
body of water, or your boy friend's eyes! But, when you think of green, well-nothing
comes except that girl's eyes! The one who also likes your boy friend's pretty, blue
eyes! But, the color blue is so much more fun to think about. For instance, the new
cashmere sweater you've been promised or the blue ribbon on the corsage you got for the
last dance. Then there was the time when your dog won a blue ribbon in a contest. Of
course, green has its good side too--if I could just get that girl off my mind. She wore
a beautiful green formal to the club dance when she got my man. Ho hum - come to
think of it, my dress was pale blue. I wonder if I can get Dad to buy me that nice green
jacket. I might look all right in green after all.-Anonymous.
HOW TO TELL A ROSE FROM A GARBAGE CAN
by Kenneth Youngblut
"And now, without further ado, ladies and gentlemen, we bring to you that emminent
botanist, Dr. I. M. Screwyf'
"Thank you, Don, and good evening, folks. In bringing my report before the public, this
evening, I can assure you that no time or effort has been spared to present only the most
reliable facts. For only one untrue statement would make this whole program a mere
fallacy. The reason behind this document is that too long has the public been ignorant of
the difference between a rose and a garbage can. I intend to end this mystery for all time.
"The first, and probably most evident difference is the fact that a garbage can has no
thorns. This is of great importance since it would be terrible if one got stuck every
time one lifted the lid to deposit some .... what shall I say, "refuse"? Another striking
dissimilarity is that the can has no foliage. I know of only one instance where a phe-
nomenon contrary to this rule occurred. That happened when a small oak tree blossomed
forth through a hole in the bottom of said can.
"I cannot go any further without relating a joke I heard the other day. Mr. Jones said
to Mr. Smith, 'What has four wheels and f1ies?' Mr. Smith, of course, said, 'I don't know.
What does have four wheels and flies?' 'Why, a garbage wagon, naturally,' came Mr.
J ones' curt reply. Get it? Flies. Bugs. Garbage wagon. Now I ask you. Isn't that clever?
"But to get back to the subject at hand. Another advantage of roses is their beauty. I
think you will agree that a bunch of garbage cans in a bowl on the dining room table
would look rather awkward, to say the least. It's just as I always say, 'Roses are full of
beauty! Garbage cans are full of something too, but it certainly isn't beauty. Last, but
by far not least, is the item of fragrance. A rose by any other name still smells as sweet,
whereas, a garbage can by any other name just smells. In fact, when I come right down
to it, I myself can't see any way in which the two are alike. If you think of any, just jot
them down on the table cloth at the corner restaurant, and send them ing together with
the lid from your garbage can, and your name and address. If you can't spare your own
lid, swipe your neighbor's. By return mail, you will receive a beautiful rose bush, with
full instructions on how to grow garbage cans, I mean roses. This is radio station P. U.
signing off. Thank you, and good night." '
A TRIBUTE TO PRESIDENT ROOSEVELT
Years ago in a certain forest stood a giant oak tree. This tree stood
straight and true, and as the years went by its branches extended in pro-
tection and shelter to the other trees. It stood as a symbol to the rest of
the forest of strength and uprightness. And then, suddenly, one day this
tree fell, leaving the forest Void and in deep silence.
Yesterday a man died, and the effect of his death upon the world was like
unto that of the oak tree, for today all over the world men are mourning
the death of a truly great man, Franklin Delano Roosevelt, thirty-first
president of the United States.
And yet, in their grief, the people of our nation and of all the allied
nations are continuing their Work, are continuing the fight, that the things
for which this man lived, fought and died might materialize and be made
real. His plans for peace, World security and a higher standard of living
for all peoples, of all nations, are still before us. These are things which
must come to pass in order that men may live and have fellowship together
in peace and security.
In time men will talk of a memorial to Franklin Roosevelt, but this morn-
ing I should like to think of the American people, of you and me, and of
the freedom and peace loving people of the World, as a living memorial
to this man. For it is only the people who can make sure that his ideals
and his plans become reality.
It presents, then, a challenge to us, the livingg we must take the torch and
hold it high. And as the poet has said:
Sleep peacefully, for all is well,
The flaming torch aloft we bear,
With burning hearts an oath we swear
To keep the faith, to fight it through,
To keep the faith, or sleep with you.
by Roger Fritz
COMMEMORATION ODE 1945
by English Seven Classes, compiled by Jane Rideout
The shock that numbed the brain, and left
tongues dry ,
Came as the Nation mourned the passing of
a great man.
So peacefully and calmly did Death o'ertake
That mankind was stunned to learn of his
From the world that he loved and made
Slowly and surely the truth came over us:
The fact could not be denied: He was gone.
This war-torn world went into a dizzy spin
For, he who had stood for equality, freedom
Had slipped away.
It was hard to realize that this one man
could have held
Innumerable powers by his spoken word.
He was like a rock being beaten by the
angry seas of a troubled world.
A happy warrior he was, in his own right,
For, hc, too, was left a cripple by paralysis.
With all the high ideas of democracy im-
bedded in his service,
Who can forget the valiant warrior
That led his country for twelve long years?
His dauntless courage will forever stand as
a guiding light
To the people of many lands,
For, the needs of the people for the present
Were the things upon which he dwelt.
His friendly smile, his homey attitude
Wiltl long be considered as the outstanding
In the flag of presidents of this country.
Yes, this man is unconscious now,
And his consciousness he will never regain.
But, he is not deadg
His ideals will live on long beyond him,
And the mechanism of the world will go on
Without the leadership of this famous
by Phyllis Dirksen
End of third period
The passing bell rings.
With voices of shouting
The halls seem to sing.
But through the racket
And through the noise
Echo the voices of absent boys.
All are missing,
But some are gone:
Forever. Yet in the halls
Their footsteps pass on.
End of third period
The passing bells ring
And few notice the different smell
In the hall, in the spring.
But in some distant field
Where only bullets ring-
Lying in mud in a foxhole,
He remembers this and other things.
Like the time he made a touchdown
Carrying the wet and slippery ball
Or the time .... A bullet finds its mark,
And his voice sounds on
Through silent halls.
Adolph Rampenthal, serving with the armed forces, died of wounds suffered in
action in Iwo Jima, on February 23, 1945. He enlisted September 23, 1943. He
was born June 9, 1927.
Miss Steinhoff was born in Eagle, Wisconsin, on December 11, 1921. She grad-
uated from the State Teachers College in Whitewater, Wisconsin, in July, 1943.
She was a commercial major and before teaching here she taught one year at
Harvard High School.
ODE TO A SWOONER-CROONER
With black, wavy hair and emaciated body
A polka dot bow tie, by now a little shoddy,
As you stand before the microphone and the octaves lightly
A thousand girls fall at yer feet, but ya don't give me a thrill.
I've seen ya in the pitcher show,
My girl made me go there,
To see the swooner-crooner with the pretty, wavy hair.
And then there comes across the screen, a silly little goon.
I look once more before I know, "That's him what makes 'em
Now, why don't you be a truck driver, that's something that's
Or sell refrigerators, influence others with yer smile.
But there is no worse punishment in that home in which I
Than sitting by the radio, alistening to you yell.

ANYTHING CAN HAPPEN !
CProphecy of Class of H452
Now I lay me down to sleep,
And as I lie in slumber sweet,
Strange shapes into my dreams do creep.
Vague at first, then clearer still-
Mounting the crest of yonder hill.
Toward me they come now plain to see,
Each face reveals the sought desires
To which the class of '45 aspires.
Parting, the swirling mist reveals
The faces of long forgotten friends
Lost to me since school days' end.
A scholarly gentleman plods his way,
A small black bag at his side does sway.
Harvey Zartman is his name,
And he is destined for great fame.
Following close behind I see
The hot cross bun maker - Len Hasse.
Treading near upon his heels,
Comes the preparer of tempting meals.
No other dishes ever taste keener
Than those prepared by Marilou Deaner.
Coming through the cloudy mist
Are heard the tones of an organist.
Accompanying the celestial choir
Is the fame-ed Bob Dietmeier.
Into my dream a house appears
Where ten children have been reared.
Mary Gushart stands in the door,
Her children playing upon the floor.
Striding over the bluff with military zest
Comes Colonel James Zanoni with medals on his chest
And dressed in white, walking by his side,
Is Jean Erdmier, his newly-wedded bride.
Soaring o'er head, where the birdies do fly,
Don Sturtevant pilots a plane through the sky.
The mist swirls together like the curtain of night,
And through the haze Fifth Avenue comes in sight.
Walking down the street in a gown so sweet
Is Christine Eklund with glance discreet,
In a long fiowing gown the color of kelly,
Fashioned by the designer, Alice Down-elli.
Mid the traflic so loud is the boss of the crowd,
The copper, Joe Graham, so tall and so proud.
In the twinkling lights there is one more bright
Guiding all men on the road that is right.
It is Henry Haberkamp, the theology teacher,
Who spends his Sundays being a preacher.
Climbing out of a taxi so yellow
Steps Natalie Heard with her latest fellow.
In my dream Fifth Avenue fades from view,
And I see a building that is very new.
In it Bob Olson, the scientific scholar,
Works hard all day to earn a dollar.
Across the way is the Y. M. C. A.
Where all the fellows go to play.
Teaching them the art of pool
Is the director, Dixon McCool.
And Lo and Behold! as never foretold
Is Marilyn Meinzer outspoken and bold.
And on a corner of this little town
Is Karl Dame, so bold and so round,
Discussing the latest local affairs
With Bob Young, a man of very few cares.
The breeze gathers the fog in a cloudy mass,
And from my vision this scene does pass.
Now into my View an orchestra comes
Where Marshall Bruce on the piano strums.
And for his singer deluxe he has
Delores Shivers, queen of jazz.
And who should we see at the cabaret
But a suave head waiter
By the name of Dick Cramer.
Next a social butterfly I see
And to happiness she holds the key.
And she is Audrey Luedeking,
Whose face has launched a thousand rings.
And sitting close nearby behold
Lois Hart draped in gold.
And who should be dancing on the fioor
But that blond bomber Valeria Vore.
My dream returns to the swirling mist
And shapes rise out like will-o-the-wisps.
Approaching now before my eyes
Comes the baker of wholesome pies.
Betty Miller is the one
By whom this task is always done.
Into my view comes fearless George Chiames,
Second string man at Notre Diames.
And now Shirlee Fisher, the hair connoisseur,
Creates hair styles newer and newer.
And through the ethereal mass
Lois Smith now doth pass,
Gliding sleekly into my vision,
Sewing with machine-like precision.
And following next through the cloud I find
Mary Lee Pierce, repairer of the mind.
And whom should I seeg Oh! what a surprise!
The leader of our great nation,
Is President Held, woman's salvation.
Through all -the shade the mist effervesced,
And of all my dreams this was the best. .
A breeze so gentle, mild, and light
Removed all this from my drowsy sight.
Then I awoke with a start
And put my feet on the cold fioor.

Just what do many high-schoolers do with those extra long weekends that are supposed
to be consumed with studies? Jumping out of bed and dashing off towork in much the
same manner as to school, is the regular Saturday morning routine for many. Of course,
those who work at home or clerk in a store may not have to get up at the crack of
dawn, but alas! the poor factory worker or paper boy who must roll out at six.
Surprising as it seems, there are more students working after school and Saturdays
than just on Saturdays. As of January, for instance, 85 out of 154 working girls and
149 out of 201 working boys do week-day and Saturday work. In almost any shop or
place of business some high-schoolers may be found. However, it seems as if the girls
prefer Rawleigh's and that many of the boys work in grocery stores.
For instance, in laying in your weekly food supply on Saturday, you may be helped by
Schroeder, Mackey, or Waddles at the "Great Atlantic and Pacific." Some of you may
prefer going to your neighborhood store instead. At the Triangle Grocery Store will be
Edna Ross behind the counter, or over at the Cherry Avenue Store you may pay your
bill to cheerful Barbara Smith at the cash register. For your meat you go to the meat
market where you would find Dickie Donahue behind the counters. Those desiring to get
away from the hot stove for a meal can go to the Young's Uptown where Jim Domin-
guez is hopping tables. Perhaps you will desire a lighter and richer snack, in which case
you could go to the Superior Dairy where you would find Bob Anderson washing malted
milk containers. Now if it's candy you want, go to Frances at the big Kresge. Also to
be found there, but further back, is Phyllis Baird-while at the dimery next door is
red-headed Joyce Sturtevant selling ribbons. Across the street and up a bit are Sylvia
Folgate and Fawn at F. A. Read's, selling the usual line of department store goods.
The masculine population will perhaps meet Bob Rinehart or Dale Freidag at E. :Sz W.
And of course, we mustn't forget Marion Johnson at Penny's or Gloria Hill at Hecht's
and the girls at Robinson's. Perhaps, if you have just bought a new frock, you will want
your picture taken. Why not make an appointment with Alice Downing at Dorothy
Delain's? You say you need some sweat socks! Well, just go down to Messing and
Becker's and Jack will help you out. Or is it corn plasters your feet need? Symie can
help you out there. Now for those nails you need to fix the screens with, go to Len
Hasse at Hepner's-he'll fix you up. If you should happen to drop into the Y.M.C.A.,
you will see McCool or Fritz, or if you feel the urge to take a sudden trip, get your bus
ticket from Bob Stickle.
Here comes Postman Richter down the street and with him is farmer Parriott. And
there go farmers Noltemeier and Jordan into the library to hand in an over due book to
Fannie Jane Mullins. Then fon the more morbid sidej we see Dick Cramer sweeping
the walk while waiting for a call at Eichmeier Sz Becker's.
We have our representatives in the oflices about town too. In the tabulating department
at Crum's you will find Joan Tibbets, and over amongst the files will be Jean Spencer
or Shirley Strobel. Over in the Burgess oflice are Reining and Palmer. Upon lifting up
your receiver some night between four and eight, listen for the efficient "Number,
please" of Dir, Tobin or young Erdmier. On another switch board over at Micro's you
will find Jane Kruse. There in the lab, happily mixing chemicals and analyzing foods,
is Jerry "Tic-toe!" Down the street a way we see Stud precariously balancing himself
on the third floor window sill of Woodmanse's while devouring his lunch. To end up
with a happy note you may listen to the crooning of Dirk as she slaps the deodorant
into the jars at Rawleigh's.
These are just a few of the many high-schoolers that are trying to do their bit to help
the war effort. Another large, not-to-be-forgotten group are the many who stay at
home and take care of their kid brother or sister. They take it for granted that the
day will be spent doing dishes and worse yet, doing the weekly cleaning. And then too,
it seems as if there will always be yards to mow, crops to be planted and chickens to
be fed. How about it, Maxey?

This year we celebrated our 107th year of public education by holding' our annual Open
llouse on November 8th. Our efforts were to show our proud parents the advances in
education since 1852 when the first high school was erected. Many people wondered at
the ballling chemistry experiments and at the delicious food prepared in the home eco-
nomics department. They were all very pleased until a teacher, during one of those brief,
dreaded talks let our parents in on the secret that Johnny hadn't been doing so well lately.
To get our mind on a more pleasant subject we took lVIother and Father to the art exhibit
or over to the gym. where they were greeted by the smooth strains of Oklrrlzonm. Then
at't,or the Debate Forum, we dragged ourselves homeward.
STUDENT GOVERNMENT DAY
Haven't you ever wanted to be mayor of the town just for a day? The students in Mr.
Lumby's government classes have this opportunity thrust upon them fAnd do they love
' ' " ' l'r'st.inareg-
1t!J one day every year. There are two parties, Citizen s and Peop e s, jus as
ular city election, and the campaign managers are busy for weeks preparing their candi-
dates' platform. There is no mud slinging in these campaigns and no torchlight parade,
but enthusiasm abounds. The big day itself arrives in all its glory, bringing forth new
' new trials CBut we mean trrialslb for junior politicians from F.H.S. The jail,
experiences, . l l .
the courtroom, the fire station, the bi-i-g fire trucks, and the motorcycles-all these con-
front Johnny Freeport in one short day. Gee, it's like twenty Christmas mornings all at
. . . . . Y l.k t h
once. When quitting time rolls around, a little bit sooner than most students 1 e o ave
it roll around, a bunch of tired, but still enthusiastic juvenile officials leave their make-
believe land of Oflicialdom and trudge happily homeward, a little bit wiser for the wear.

Inn" was packed. The crowd was both amazed and amused at what the
hard working seniors had accomplished with a little initiative and imagina-
tion despite priority and rationing difiiculties. And then, what might be
called the "crowning point" of the whole successful evening for the seniors
was to have their King and Queen, "Short" and Gloria, crowned to reign
supreme over the whole Carnival. It was truly a night for every senior
to mark on his calendar.

llave you been on second tloor near room llti
some eighth hour and heard the "exquisite"
music that issues forth 'Y llave you ever won-
dered what that room housed that period?
tThat was for freshmen only.J It's the a cap-
pella choir, of course. You've all heard the
a cappella in the Christmas Concert and the
May Festival and no doubt enjoyed it. We
don't make many public appearances besides
those two, but the ensembles formed by mem-
bers ot' a cappella make many public appear-
The Madrigals were started in Italy and from
there spread to England, from whence they
have come down to us. The most important
madrigal songs were written by the English.
The Madrigals were people who sang because
they enjoyed music. There were usually nine
members in such a group. They met in homes
and often sang around tables. They were di-
rected by a person who gave the pitch and who
kept them together as they sang. The Madri-
gals of Freeport High have tried to follow
these customs. They sing music of many dif-
ferent types. This year the Madrigals have
appeared at Open House, the Christmas Con-
cert, the Easter Service, the Spring' Festival,
and the annual Music Concert.

Our group, Treble Clef A, one in which twenty-
one girls participate, is under the direction of
Miss Adelaide Ewing. During class we learn
majors, minors, intervals and many other
things which help to make a good group. Since
it is very essential to have voices that blend,
once every six weeks we are tested to find the
section to which our voices are best suited.
This way balance, which is necessary in all
types of musical groups, is maintained. At
the end of the semester each girl must sing a
solo, trying to use the vocal principles learned
during the year.
Every day, second hour, the melodious strains
of Treble Clef B may be heard in the music
room under the direction of Miss Dorothy Nel-
son. There the girls get their basic training
for the future years in Treble Clef A and
a cappella choir. These enthusiastic young
singe1's made their bow to the public twice this
year-at the Christmas Concert and the Spring

We sing a fine song! Indeed we do! Under the direction of Miss Adelaide Ewing' our
two groups, Triple Trio I and Triple Trio II, both, as our name implies, consisting of
three trios, have added zest to the light classics in our performances at the Woman's
Club and other community functions. We're always on hand at the Christmas Concert

the whipping. All through junior high and for three years in senior high,

knees backstage! The cast Wasn't really scared, they were just relaxing.
The prop committee was running here and there, moving furniture, mak-
ing sure all the doors opened and shut without falling off their hinges, or
looking for the missing book that belonged on the end table. In the upper
regions in Dressing Room Two the makeup artists were trying to make
everyone in the cast look like someone else and were succeeding. Then,
"First Act places, everyone." Miss Lloyd said, "Let's go, gang," and
"Plane Crazy" was off to a flying start. Mission was highly successful and

Miss Beattie, pardon us, Mrs. Bushman proved she believed in the old
adage of, "The early bird gets the Woim," by selecting her play cast about
six weeks before they were to make their debut. CShe got the woims, all
right.J The Trading Post's cookie sales zoomed up 10024 and Mrs. Bush-
man's troubles began. fBring out the broom and dustpan, boys.J We
labored. We slaved. We tried to stay in character, but!!
The BIG DAY arrived and we had one casualty. Mr. Graves, in a rush
to assume the role of papa to Junior Miss, became involved in an auto
mishap. Needless to say, the play was a success. But we never did Gnd
out who lit the cigarette in the frog's mouth. Or did we, Buddha?
We started our debate season by traveling to the aspiring metropolis of
Geneseo for a practice meet. Placing third at this meet, the affirmative
managed to muster out Mendota and our note-worthy negative rocked
Rock Island. Two weeks elapsed. We journeyed to Beloit. Here, we man-
aged to place second in the tournament. And Mr. Martin, not to be out-
done, managed to place his car C?J in snow banks twice on the way home.
The first time four of us managed to push the proverbial Pontiac back on
the road while Sandstrom stood out in the middle of the highway, waving
his arms and yelling, "Come on, push, you guys, push!!" The aid of a
passing motorist was required to place Mr. Martin's priceless gem back
on the highway the second time.
The following Friday night we found ourselves in the exquisite Fox Hotel
at Elgin. Too early the next morning we started to debate. In this meet,
our second team hit a winning streak and won six of their eight debates.
The next meet was the annual two day tournament at Augustana College.
This is the ideal tournament, for the debaters from approximately seven-
teen schools spend the night at one hotel.
After putting in a total of twenty-four man C?J hours of debating, the
results showed that out of the twenty-two schools participating from Iowa
and Illinois, "Hubba Hubba" Schirmer, "Foundries" Weckerly, "Reverend"
Fritz, and "Senator" Koeller brought Freeport a fourth place. Elgin was
the only Illinois school to surpass us at this meet.
One week after the turn of the semester, our third team hopped the Grey-
hound for a one day practice meet at Elgin. Then came our preparations
for Big Eight, where we placed fifth.
Our second and third teams then honored dear old East High of Rockford
with their presence at the Rab's invitational meet. Only two schools nosed
in ahead of Freeport's second team in this meet.
We ended our debate season by placing second in the State Sectional Speech
Meet at Freeport.

The members ol' the Camera Club gain prac-
tical experience through taking, tlevelopingr,
and printing pictures. Our camera study group
meets informally every seventh hour in the
chemistry room, where the dark room and
other photog3rapher's equipment are located.
The art of tttaking' pictures" is one which is
extremely valuable and useful at any time.-
llowever, the formation ot' this cluh is vital to
the school because the niemliers do all the
photographic work connected with senior por- I
traits, class pictures, and informal sh s, es-'

Students, upon entering' Mademoiselle's French

French Club, Le Cercle Francaias. The club,
tres petit, has been stressing the value of oral
French and a larger vocabulary. French opera
recordings, French games and the June picnic
add some zest to the meetings. In February
the club had a special film shown, "The Libera-

Do you want to become a lady? Do you envy Hedy and Lauren? fSo do well Hey,
don't turn the page! Maybe you don't care now about being ladylike, but five or ten
years hence you will thank your stars you took time off to cultivate the traits of polite-
ness and charm. To develop these traits and many others is the aim of the Hi-G.R.
But a gal can't be a lady until she's had some fun. Frequent after-the-game dances and
organized games are participated in by all the girl reserves. However, whether a lady
or a tomboy, you can believe that man who said, t'They're worth their weight in lolly-
popsl" A twinkling sta1'ry night, the jingle of sleigh bells, the laughter of lighthearted
fellas and gals, these are highlights of a Hi-G.R. sleigh ride. What if the sleigh did
break down? We had fun, didn't we, and didn't those hot dogs afterwards taste like
something out of Betty Crocker's kitchen? The big Spring' Swing, at which all eager
Astairs prance forth and gambol with nymph-like grace, is one of the "musts" for every
Hi-G.R. and her date. Oh Boy! A little work and a little play plus a lot of good friends
make joining this club something every underclass lass looks forward to.

National Honor Society
chosen in junior year.
Mary Jane Homan
Mary Lou Morgan
Election into the Honor Society is one of the highest honors that a student of Freeport
High School can attain. To be admitted, the student must be of good scholastic stand-
ing, and must have proven himself in leadership, dependability, and honor. He must be
favorably voted upon by a required number of teachers before allowed membership.
The number of members of the Society is limited to not more than five per cent of the
junior class, nor more than ten per cent of that class as seniors, making a total of fif-
teen per cent of one class. The average number of members at one time is about thirty
to thirty-five. Election is held before the third term of the second semester, and those
lucky students selected are initiated. The National Honor Society is, as the name im-
plies, a nation-wide organization.

LATIN AND SCIENCE CLUBS
The Science Club, although small at the beginning' of the year, grew astonishingly
after a successful membership drive. Much more is accomplished by this club than any
other in school from the standpoint of aiding the student intellectually. Not just any-
one can belong' to the Funnel and Flask. A student, in order to grain entrance, must be
working on any scientific project of his own choosing: At some time during the year,
he is required to bring his project before the club and hold a discussion period. In this
way the others may get new ideas and may help each other on perplexing' problems.
Their projects are diversified and interesting. At one meeting we saw Harvey Zartman,
the president, electrocuting' frogs, so don't be alarmed at any unpleasant odors or
sounds coming' out of 211 about 4 p.m. some afternoon.

A literary society ot' high schools Jills and Jacksons, that's the Philos. Though our
more intellectual name is Philomathians, we definitely prefer the shorter version. We
think we're very important with our own library, and only members may take out
Philo books. One of our long-standing objectives is to buy several new books a year for
our shelves. Sharp initiation picnics, cookie sales and hilarious meetings are mingled
with the more serious hook reviews, lectu1'es and poetic record sessions. Advisor
McHenry helps us a lot, too. A well-rounded year of fun and thought is somethi

Who are those girls dressed in blue and white who are seen in the corridors of the
hospital? Why, they are our nurse's aides. These girls are doing a magnificent job ln
both the St. Francis and Deaconess Hospitals. Their jobs are numerous. They make
beds, carry trays, set trays, help in the kitchen and even wash and wipe dishes, but you
don't hear them complaining. These girls have volunteered their services for after
school and Saturdays. This is one of their contributions to the war, for by their help,
trained nurses are released for more important duties.
The Junior Red Cross Council consists of one member from each home room. This
member represents his home room at all meetings and business transactions. An annual
drive was started to secure membership to the Junior Red Cross. The school turned out
one hundred per cent and received an amount of approximately 5106. The Junior Red
Cross has put on an apple drive for the Snack Bar. They have sent many useful com-
modities to the armed forces. Also, a drive for the National Children's Fund was put
on this spring. Marilou Deaner, presidentg Lois Kahl, vice presidentg Robert Dietmeier,

Freeport's grid season opened in the heat of August and with many drops
of sweat ground out a team which we are all proud of. A unanimous vote
of thanks goes to all the team from all of us.
In the opener of the season Freeport played host to a fast Dubuque team.
However, power plays built around Chiames proved too much for the
eleven men from Dubuque.
At LaSalle, Freeport took to the air with a ine combination of Wunsch to
Hershberger, but heads-up ball play by Weiden, who took the ball and
galloped 66 yards, made that score L. P. 12-Pretzels 7.
A brilliant comeback was staged by Freeport when W. Aurora came here.
Outstanding downfield blocking by Cowan and Georgalas, with Bardell's
spurty running, turned the tide in our favor, W. Aurora 13-Pretz's 20.
The Pretzels journeyed down W. Rockford way to play a rough and tough
game. Although Rockford was outclassed in play, they raked up the big-
best score, winning 14-6.
Freeport's weight plowed under a light E. Rockford. Freeport ran rough
shod to a 28-7 victory, which was very heart warmin'.
The shifty Joliet backfield kept the Freeporters' defense off balance all
through the contest. The inability of the Pretzels to score resulted in a
West Rockford met Freeport in a closely contested game that turned out
to be the best debate ever held. Words didn't turn the trick and we lost
In the final home game the team proved to all that they could carry the
pigskin successfully by defeating Elgin 19-0.
In the last game of the season Freeport went to E. Aurora, where Cowan,
a sophomore this year, turned in a bang up running exhibition, but it
wasn't quite good enough to balance a 12-9 score.

The Pretzelettes turned in their best season for a long time with a record
of 6 won, 2 tied, and 3 lost. Kenny Hultquist, Percy Franklin, completed
a passing team that clinched many a game. I
In a practice game, the ponies rolled Lanark 25-0, then dropped a game
to a scrappy Oregon eleven 7-13. Bouncing back, the Frost-Soph trapped
L. P. 26-6 and kept right on rolling by handing a 20-8 count to the
Monroe B's. W. Rockford proved too big to handle and the Pretzelettes
bowed to a 20-0 decision.
East Rockford took a closely contested game from the Pretzelettes by a
slim margin of one point, 7-6. When the Monroe B's came Freeport way
they proved tougher than before and tied the score 6 all. But the Freeport
junior squad got tough with a big W. Rockford squad and knotted it 12-12.
The Frosh-Soph pulled a runaway with South Beloit by Winning 25-0.
Another team felt the snap of the junior gridders when they defeated
Pecatonica 27-7. E. Rockford ended the Pretzelettes' successful season
with a 40-19 decision in favor of E. Rockford.

This year Freshman-Sophomore "Big 8" competition once again came to the limelight
The Pretzelettes turned in a very favor-

the form of their new coach, the former . . . as e
the youngsters the rudiments of a fast, cagey game. The finesse and accuracy of the
"Little I'retz" rivaled that of the Varsity and was greatly admired by the fans. They
wasted little time in getting down to business in winning their opener over Dixon 36-25.
The next three games were dropped to the more experienced Orangeville, Durand, and
Shannon squads. After a 34 to 16 victory over Dakota the Pretzelettes drubbed a flashy
West Aurora team 339-531. The next week the young hoopsters lost to Lena by a close
51-49 margin, rebounding in a week to take an overtime thriller from the speedy Rablets

ford playing a line fast game, were the next to subdue the "Little Pretz" by a slim count
of 2333-28. The Frosh-Sophs easily overcame their next hurdle in the form of Belvidere.
The following week, however, a strong LaSalle-Peru tive overcame Freeport's 1st quarter

335-321. A return engagement with the East High Ralolets of Rockford proved unlucky for
the Pretzelettes and they dropped the contest 49-32. After vanquishing the boys from
Shannon, the voting Warriors of West High Rockford again defeated our junior cage-
. . t I V. A .l. t
men. The Pretz, smarting under the previous Week's defeat, came back with a bril ian
performance in this their last contest of the year. It came in the form of trouncing the
Incas of LaSalle-Peru, a team that had in a previous encounter defeated the young Pretz.
The final count was a thrilling 44-43. In ending the season with this show of ability and
team play, the boys assure us of a definite nucleus for future great F.H.S, teams. More
power to you, kids!
This year's Varsity cage team, led by coach Joe Spudich, could be called a very successful
team, winning 18 out of 25 games. In the season opener they took an easy hurdle by de-
feating the boys from Dixon 33-24. Marengo found the Pretz in high gear and easily won
63-30. The next victory was chalked up over the heralded East Moline squad by a 39-34
win. In the following session West Aurora succumbed to the mighty F.H.S. squad 32-28.
Freeport received her first of three defeats at the hands of East High 44-34. However, in
our next fracas the Pretzels jumped back to a close win over Dubuque 42-38. With the
cards again stacked against us, F.H.S. went down to defeat at the hands of a cagey West
Madison five 51-47. The holiday tournament at Waukegan heaped more laurels at the feet
of the Pretz in their severe drubbing of the widely acclaimed Waukegan squad 31-23. The
gang returned to Freeport as champions of the Waukegan tournament by soaring to a
generous 41-20 win over Dundee. Joliet next fell before our undaunted cagemen 49-29.
The following week found a "lighting mad" West Rockford team on the home court. The
Pretz bowed 32-31. In the next engagement the F.H.S. quintet defeated Belvidere 41-31.
The Pretzelmen then yielded ground to the boys from LaSalle-Peru 55-49. Freeport then
proceeded to subjugate Dubuque for the second time in one season by an overwhelming
59-27. The following week offered probably the finest game and greatest victory of the
year as the Pretz quelled the Champaign-bound Elgin squad. The next two games were
dropped-one to the powerful East Rabs 68-51 and the other to Moline 26-22. After hav-
ing the wind knocked out of their sails, the boys began a seven-game win streak by sub-
duing the Tomcats of East Aurora, 'fShort" and "Croak" leading the way to a top-heavy
50-32 count. West Rockford next fell victim to the Pretzel boys, 43-37. The next two
victories were over LaSalle-Peru 43-42 fa close onel, and Maine Township of DesPlaines
30-15. Freeport, being slated for the Stockton Regional, commenced to take matters in
her own hands and decisively overpowered the opposing squads: Stockton, Aquin of Free-
port, and Warren. In the first meeting of the two schools, Freeport defeated a fine Aquin
squad 54-31. Tall Bob Rowe f6'7"J of Warren offered the Pretz a lot of trouble on the
last game of the tournament, but the Pretz five overcame the last unbeaten team in the
state by a count of 61-41. Freeport, with the Regional cup in hand, then proceeded to
Rockford for the Sectional tourney. Paired with the powerful East High club, Freeport's
basketball season terminated with our 60-34 defeat. So, in ending the "Hardwood History"
of the 1944-45 season, we, as students, can very truthfully say, "Nice going, gang!"
1944 was the gala year in Freeport's track history, in which our tracksters
satisfied Coach Weber with a job well done. The Pretzels had an evenly
balanced squad with possibly some weakness in the field. At any rate, the
results of the meets speak for themselves.

Donn's athletic interest in sports was manifested early in life. As a fresh-
man he showed promise of a great sports career by winning letters in foot-
ball and basketball. In his sophomore year he added a varsity "F" in track
to his basketball and football awards. By his junior year he had won three
varsity monograms. He felt that he could do better and what is more, he
did. Reserved for his fourth and final season at Freeport were honors
accorded no other Freeport athlete. In addition to winning the coveted
varsity letter in his three chosen forms of sports competition he received
numerous honorary awards. He was chosen on every all-Big Eight con-
ference and state football selection of the experts at an end position, due
primarily to his aggressive offensive and defensive play. At the conclusion
of the 1944-1945 basketball season he was again honored by being chosen
by coaches and sports scribes an all-Big Eight center, and receiving honor-
able mention for that pivot assignment by Pat Harmon of the Champaign
New-Gazette. During the track season he was an outstanding shot-putter
and hurdler over both the high and low barriers. He consistently threw
the 12-pound pellet over the 45-foot mark, and cleared the high hurdles
in the commendable time of 15.8. In the low hurdles he was under the
25-second mark with monotonous regularity.
Thus ended the high school career of a fine competitor, an excellent scholar,
a gentleman, and the winner of eleven athletic awards. Donn's athletic
honors and scholastic accomplishments left him in his senior year as he
was in his freshman year, namely a mild-mannered, courteous, cooperative,
and truly a coach's player. Coaches, fans, and players alike will miss the
"big fellow" in Freeport's contests of tomorrow. We all wish this fine
young man loads of success as a college athlete and doctor of medicine-
his contemplated profession. The best of everything and the most of every-
thing worthwhile to you-"Hershey,"
P.S. I believe a word should be reserved for the athletic cup award, which
we coaches feel at this time will undoubtedly go to Donn. No one in
the present senior class seems to be near him in the competition for
Printing-Freeport Printing Company.
