FREEPORT HIGH SCHOOL
Lmnudw T.1ft's Status "Black Hawk" On Rwck Rivcr
The high school student of today has witnessed almost un'
believable advances in the fields of science and industry, ad'
vances which will necessarily alter our way of life. We must
change as our world changes if we are to survive the destrucf
tiveness of the civilization which we have created. Une of the
biggest factors necessary for a peaceful world of tomorrow, in
which men of all races, colors, and creeds will rub elbows, will
be a concerted effort towards racial tolerance and understand'
ing. Because we, the high school students of today, will be
that world of tomorrow and because of the acute necessity for
racial tolerance, a necessity which affects us directly, we have
tried to convey a plea for universal understanding among all
men as the underlying theme of our book. In using the Indian
as an art motif we have idealized his principles of honesty,
tolerance, and fair play and set forth these ideals as an example
for future generations to follow.

are horses of many colors- brown, black,

cattle, so all living things animals, flowers,
trees. So men: in this land where onee were
only Indians are now men of every colored

the heart of the Great Mystery. It is right
thus. And everywhere there shall be peace."

Speaking of cars, where does Karl Tabby Coke Mona Kasten QWe don't know which he prefers.J drive
on Sunday afternoons? . . . Chuck Blodgett must be quite a guy to have three girls fighting over him.
. . . Elmo, maybe if you grew a little, Nookie would notice you .... Eva Reining and Margie Moen

in your locker on Valentine's Day? QThrill, thrillj . . . Joanne Wagner and Dick Staas have made up
again. We hope for keeps .... Millie and Clie really do their stuff in gym. They're soooo limber! . . .
How Joanne Toussaint has changed since junior high. Hubba Hubba! . . . Don't you just love Harry
Foley's white pants? . . . Arlene, where did you learn to be such a good dancer? . . . The freshman
class boast their own Van Johnson!-Stan Altenbern. QHe can also knitlj . . . Daryl Burns, the little
man who is always there .... Maribeth, did you say you loved his yellow sweater and maroon shirt?
. . . Paula Lou, you'd better keep your eye on Kenny Fitchner. You've got plenty of competition. . . .
Norma McLain and Audrey Staas just can't sew. Oh well, girls, maybe some day you'll learn ....
Whose picture does Phyllis Cblander keep under her pillow each night? . . . We're proud of the fine

Action in the Game with Rockford, East
The high school gridders, although handif
capped hy a months delay in their practice
schedule due to the local work of the polio
hug, were ahle to show quite an impressive
record for their three game schedule.
The "germ" wasn't content with his work
in Freeport alone and caused quite a disf
turhance in hoth of the Rockford camps,
causing the Big "8" conference race to he
limited to live games and eliminating Freef
port and Rockford from the conference.
Every Freeport fan was confident as the
season progressed that had there heen a full
schedule and two weeks more practice, the
local squads would have made a very praisef
worthy record in conference competition.
The first test came for the Pretz in their
encounter with Thornton, whom they
promptly turned hack 13 to 7. The work
of Cowan and Engelhart in the hacklield
and Dreier and Symanek up front was
especially outstanding in this ine victory.

After several tentative eontests were eaneeled due to tlie opposing teams' fear of the
Pretz for was it tlie polio7j, our lwoys journeyed to Elgin, wliere they were met and
downed by the lvlaroons 27 to O.
The final game of tlie season found us playing liost to the East Rockford Ralws. The
contest featured some fine running and lwloeking on tlie part of lwotli teams, with Roekf
ford pouring on the steam in the last half to take a 27 to 13 victory.
Altliougli Dreier, Ross, Symanek, Seeker and Adams will be sorely missed, mueli is

llasliethall, hasehall, hadminton, archery, howling, volleyhall all are familiar to K i
the Clirls' Athletie Association. Their athletic meets are held in the gym Friday
nights after school, and there is howling after school on Monday nights.
The whistle sounds early in Septemher, heginning officially the G, A. A. season
of sports for .ill who "can do" or want to learn. This year a lively initiation party
accompanied the opening fall tournaments, adding some hilarity to the already
aetionfpaeked season. During the hadminton tournament Nancy Ferguson walked
ofli with top honors, this event heing followed hy local tourneys in ping pong,
haskethall, skirmishes, and finally, the state howling and hasket throw contests.
Comes the spring and also the U. A. A. swimming classes at the Y. M. C. A.
However, the highlight of this season and of the fall is a play day held twice a
year at two of- the neighhoring schools. At this time the U. A. A. flock migrates
en masse on hieycle, in automohile or hy dogcart to some nearhy town to spend a
day venting their prowess in athletic frolics. Elizaheth played hostess in the fall
and Stockton in the spring. Witli the advent of archery and hasehall the school
year comes to a close, and the U. A. A. turns to summer camp for its recreation.

The cafeteria! Vw'hat would we do without it? With an average of more than
four hundred customers every day, it seems to be quite an important place in the
lives of many hungry F. H. S, students. From all indications, everyone is thankful
for such a line place to spend the noon hour and satisfy that desire for vitamins
'n vittles. About the only complaints ever heard are that one doesn't get enough
to eat. This goes to show that the food is so good that a generous helping just
makes one want more. The limit of one dessert is hard on some "kids," but we
are doing this for the benefit of the girls who just haven't the will power to take
just one, but still want to control their waistlines. fDon't take me too seriously:
there is a shortage of sugarj
There is always a waiting list of those who want to work here. A bonus is
given to workers who are present each day of the semester, and Mrs. Rucker and
her adult helpers in the kitchen give a nice Christmas party each Christmas season.
It's a fine place, don't you think so?

STUDENT GOVERNMENT DAY
One day each year the task of running the city of Freeport is turned over to the
students of Mr. Lumby's government classes. As the designated day rolls around, the
various classes are divided into two parties, namely the People's and the Citizens
After candidates have been nominated in each group for the posts of mayor, police
magistrate, city clerk and city treasurer, campaign managers are appointed, platforms
are prepared and the campaign of each candidate terminates in a student election
choosing the officers for the day.
During this period of a state of laissezffaire in the city of Freeport, the students
appointed to the various posts are permitted to accompany the police oiiicers on their
rounds or ride in the fire trucks and, in general, learn the workings of Freeport's
It seems that one of the chief joys of the newly appointed "officials" was to dig up
old laws, which have never been repealed, from some musty book of city ordinances
and use their newly acquired powers to book other less fortunate Joes for violations of
these laws. And, although it may not be on the books, even a member of the faculty
was taken in on suspicion of high crimes and misdemeanors. QSee Miss L. for the
particulars of the trial.j
Finally, Mayor Engelhart put away his latest plans for the straightening of Freeport's
streets, Symmy collected his last fine as Police Magistrate, and the city returned to
normal after giving the students a view of the practical applications of their govern'

Sorry, Bill, no dinner for you todayg we gotta make that deadline! Ah, the
life of a reporter! Wliile Wiiicliell gets flashes, we dash madly around and any'
thing we get resemhling a flash is purely coincidental.
Reporting for the High School News isn't to he taken too lightly, however.
Since the reporters receive checks from The journal Standard hifmonthly, they
are actually employed and expected to perform their duties to the hest of their
ahility. With helpful suggestions from our aidesfdefcamp, Miss Hansen of the
English department and Miss Barnett of The journal Standard, we write, ref
write, and refwrite stories we get hy covering the office, clubs, student council,
assemhlies, dehate, dramatics, Polaris, and the English, social studies, music, and
home ec. departments. And like everyone else, reporters can make mistakes
the office discovered this the hard way when the entire population of Freeport
telephoned the school to correct the High School News on the date of the
Rockford game. We stand corrected! But even during the uneventful periods,
reporting was fun and interesting as well as heing good journalistic experience.
In Decemher, hecause the carnival cofchairmanship called her attention else'
where, "Brenda Starr" Ferguson was replaced hy Joan Springer. And now f
we go to press!

In order that the freshmen and so vhomor h h d

start in drama. Those with interest and talent are selected as memhers. Their talents
are furthered hy the chance to he in short plays, pantomimes and other dramatic
contours and coloring, smearing grease paint and experimenting with makeup on each

stage screams or laughs and learning how to tall without getting hurt. Cr it you
caught someone studying you intently, it was just a member practicing ohservation so
that she would do justice to character parts on the stage.
From this group are expected the future Fontaines and Lunts for the class plays.

MASQUE AND WIG
As the first Ivlonday of every month rolls around, the Maisque and Wig memf
hers gather for their cluh meeting. After they have answered roll call with the
name ol' a favorite actor or actress, the husiness meeting is conducted. Then comes
the more entertaining part of the program. Sometimes impromptu skits are given
hy groups, and at other times readings and other dramatic enterprises provide
the amusement. Refreshments conclude the gatherings.
Starting with the Fehruary meeting, the Mzisque and Wig and Paint and
Patches joined to make one hig cluh. The newly merged group presented a play
for the enjoyment of the dramatics students and practiced the art of makefup on
one another, varying their technique to suit characters of motley descriptions.
Next year new memhers will he initiated into the cluh according to the followf
ing requirements: Everyone must he for have heenj in dramatics class or have
heen in a play. Only juniors and seniors may helong. The initiations are quite
strenuous for the newcomers, whose cavortings hring much laughter from the
veteran inemhers, who serve as judges. And with this comedy, a highly successful
season is hrought to a close.

Long hours after school, warmed over meals, brunches of Ritz crackers and Cho'
chos and dropping of our dummy Mr. Arbuthnotg all resulted in a most stupendous
production of the mystery farce "Ramshackle Inn." Murdered dummies, old traveling
trunks, and silhouettes of the cast placed in the halls advertised this play to a more
than capacity crowd which brought down the house when Gilhooley, with his non'
chalant air, chewed away on his cigar. just before curtain time, under inches of grease
paint and costumes too big or too small, last minute instructions echoed forth from
everyone to the lovers, Ike and Mary Lou. "Put some feeling into it." "Make it a good
one, Ike." Arbuthnot calmly said, "Please don't drop me," as Weckerly bellowed,
i'Where's my gun?" Mrs, Bushmans last remark to the leads was, l'Punch those lines."

This year Open House was a special event, in that the parents were given the opportunity to attend the classes
in which their youngsters were regularly enrolled. This was done at the suggestion of our newly organized Parent'
Teacher Association, and was a change from the Open House ordinarily held for parents and students.
One of the high lights of the evening was the assemhly in the gym, which opened the program. This consisted
of a program given hy the high school orchestra and hrief remarks hy the president of the P.T.A. and Mr. Ivlensenf
kamp. At the conelusion of this assemhly the regular periods of the day were run through on an ahhreviated time
schedule. Both the faculty and students felt that the parents profited greatly hy this innovation.

We, thc sophomores of 1946, have a "Bug"ologist in our classffnamely, john Barrett .... Flash!
"Charlie" Butcher has finally learned how to dance cheek to cheek. Nice, huh, Lorna? . . . Fritz Gill
and Hobbie Howington seem to be the men of an undying supply of corsages. But the joan's don't mind,
do you, girls? . . . jack Harrison is "SIMM"fering over Charleston, West Virginia. Ain't it the truth
though, Jack? . . . We think it is an awful shame someone doesn't notice Molly Rideout's long blonde
hair .... Sally Rideout has quite an interest in the basketball games this year. It couldn't be that blond
"Itchy" Fritz, could it, Sally? . . . Another little girl whose heart turns towards an upperclassman is
Queen Reed. You sure made an attractive queen with that handsome Gramley boy along side as king.
. . . In there Hghting for Kinertman honors on field and hardwood were--J. Wright, J. QLittle Tulip,
Stevens, N. Steinhoif, "Corky" Mackert, "Lip" Krueger, D. Gramlcy, L. Mitchel, D. Stearns. Good
work, fellows .... Hey, Dave, what has Aquin got that Freeport High hasn't? . . . We all envy "Jerc"
Gallagher and his trip to the South this year. We aren't the only ones that will miss him. Right, Donna.
. . . Say, "Buck," just who has that I. D. bracelet of yours right now? It seems to change "hands" quite
often .... Among some of the quieter people around are "Lip" Krueger, Iola Henry, Warren "Coop"
Cooper and Dorothy Yankie. What's thatfnothing to say? . . . We also have a few new corners who
arefAllan Kerchberg, hailing from Huntington, West Virginia, Frank "Negative" Stanfield, Iowag
Corrine Ranney, Southern Illinoisg Jean Kirkman, Canada, plus one representative from Stockton ....
Donna Wahler seems to like the pictures at the Patio Theater much better this year, especially "Don"
Where the Blue Grass Grows .... Karl DeFrane and Raymond Vallarta look pretty snazzy in their
new Bell Bottom Navy Blue's .... Rita Ann, just how did you get those cookies delivered, huh? Maybe
Joe would know!! . . . We would also like to know what are in those small pieces of paper Norma
Rockow receives between classes. How about it, Norma? . . . Duane Stearns and Margie Drewelow
have deserted us to go to Lena High. Everyone was quite surprised when Duane appeared on our
basketball floor to play against us with the Lena team. Good luck, kiddies! , . . Wayne Finkboner and
Keith Gaengel just can't wait until Springf"er" comes .... Also upholding the propositions for debate
are Malcolm Kennedy, Mary Ellen Broge, Norma Born and Frank Stanfield .... Why is it that "Roe"
Kinzig always likes it when "Dobber" Camerer can have the car? Is it because you can get around
quicker that way? . . . "Doc" Schlaefer must enjoy being surrounded by lovely women OJ in the tenth
hour history class. At least, when the teacher tries to change his seat he always seems to have a very
good alibi for staying .... Leonard Christenfyou geometrical whizgyou! . . . The "G. I." that Glory
George has a purple passion for isn't Government Issue but private property .... Betty Young is the
"jack" of all trades .... Laura Dean's theme song isn't "Oh, Daddy!" It's "Oh, Mammy!' '... Kendel
Wagner was really biting his nails over his first speech. But he lived through it though, but don't we
all? . . . Can and do the telephone operators listen in on conversations? Ask B. Schimelpfenig and
Bauers-they know .... june Sisler is quite the early bird at school. Couldn't be your "Buddie" that
is the strong attraction, or could it? . . . Harold Schultz is the man you see on one of those zooming
motorcycles .... That was nice work you did on your oratorical speech, Pat Selke. If anyone deserved
the prize it was you. Congratulations!!

Wheii you step inside the door at the haskethall game, a hoy in a hright orange
sweater steps up to you and says, "M:1y I show you to your seat, Sir?" These
hoys are memhers of the Letterman's Cluh. They are proud of the cluh which
they represent. They have shown some achievement in either foothall, haskethall,
track, tennis or golf. The annual Letterman's-Faculty haskethall game was held
again this year, during which the faculty trimmed the lettcrmen 22 to 17.
The last highlight in the clulfs program is the long awaited picnic, when new
lettermen are initiated. By the way, those raw eggs are kinda' hard to digest,
aren't they, boys? After the initiation you can have all you can eat if you can eat.

For the second straight year, Coach Harry Kinert came
up with a group of fighting underclassmen who showed
that they had what it takes when it comes to winning
games on the hardwood court. The yearlings showed prom'
ise of good things to come when they won a close battle
from Dixon in their season's opener 36445 . They continued
in their winning ways with successive victories over
Orangeville 35-27 and Sterling 43-24. Exhibiting a well-
halancecl offensive and defensive attack, the pretzelettes
opened their Big Eight season, using twelve men in each
game to romp over LaSallefPeru 59-27 and West Aurora
4862. Their first setfback came the following week where,
after a poorly played first half, they lost to East Rockford
4384. Unwilling to assume the role of the underdog, the
youngsters promptly turned hack Joliet 46f26 and Lena
63145, with Willie Dickens and Buck Stout together ac'
counting for fortyffour points. fContinued on next page,

Qflontinued from preeeding pagej West Rockford seemed unimpressed hy our seven
previous wins, however, and nosed us out 3632. Continuing on their seoring spree they
proceeded to swamp Duhuque Flflfl, LaSalle again 44723, and Elgin 4269. Their win
over Orangeville provided an ineentive and they avenged their previous loss to East Rock'
lord with an impressive 4668 victory. After trimming East Aurora uTomeats" 5432,
our youngsters found themselves Lied for the Big Eight Conference lead with W't'st
Roekfoixl, hoth teams having seven wins and two losses. The championship game was
played on the local court with a eapaeity erowd watehing our underelassmen stage a
hattle royal without the serviees of Dickens, who had heeoine eligihle for varsity eomf
petition. The game was nip and tuck throughout, with West pulling away in the final
minutes to win 4085. The season elosed for the FroshfSophs with a record of fourteen
wins and four losses. Ereepoits Buck Stout led all seorers in the underelass division
with a total of 136 points.

During the course of the year, Hi.

forms of entertainment. As well as
other soeial services, donations were
given to the Y.W.CI.A. and the Red

play, plus a lot of good friends, make
ieining this elan something to which
the underelass lass looks forward.
The a cappella choir, as you see, is a mixed group like chorus. The two differ
in that the a cappella memhers have had more extensive musical training. Anf
other difference is that when the choir performs in puhlic, it is without any
accompaniment whatsoever. The name a cappella itself, derived from Latin,
means "sung in the old church style," which was without accompaniment.
There are five hasic voices in the choir: first soprano, second soprano, contralto,
tenor and hass. However, there are musical numhcrs which require a division in
the contralto, tenor and hass groups too, although they are not so numerous.
Since the heginning of the year, the choirs range of activities has hecn greatly
hroadened. Not only did it participate as an individual group in the Spring and
Christmas concerts, hut it also exchanged concerts with the Rockford choirs, perf
formed for various organizations, such as the P.T.A., and went to Rochelle to
participate in the music contest held there.
The director is Mr. Doolin, Phyllis Reel is the choirs president, and Mary .lane
Homan does what accompanying is needed during rehearsal.

year, the orchestra appeared as a group at the Open House, at the
Christmas Concert and at the May Festival, and various ensembles were
called upon to entertain at other programs also. Though the average

From a great number of experiments and trials the following conclusion has been
found to be undeniably true: The number and frantic intensity of conferences between
king and queen candidates, their advisers and managers are directly proportional to the
number of days until the carnival. But all the hair lost trying to pull ideas from an
unresponsive mind showed definite results in that the carnival for 1946 grossed approxif
mately 32500, more than has ever before been taken in. There were bake sales, sponf
sored movies, novelty sales, special programs, rummage sales, assemblies, and numerous
other activities which, when put together, made this year's carnival an unprecedented
On the evening of January 14, Nancy and Don heaved a great sigh of relief to sec
that it had actually "come off" as planned and surveyed the hectic scene. The turtle
race, ghost walk, dart game, basketball game, pillow fight and other concessions enter'
tained the crowd until eleven P.M., that fateful hour. Qlncidentally, Connie still doesn't
know how to induce a turtle to run a race with another turtle., Finally Ermina got
around to naming the winners, and the shout that went up when Charlie and Phyl
were announced school sovereigns rocked the rafters as no basketball yell ever has.
Runnersfup were the freshmen candidates, with the sophomores and juniors placing
third and fourth respectively.
Nancy, Don and all their cofworkers deserve a great deal of credit for a big job
well done, and, although Charlie thought his box of candy went too quickly fjoanies
fault, no doubtj, everyone else had a wonderful time.

The art department, under the supervision of Mr.
Blackwood, performs its own miracles. Posters for
school activities and community organizations must he
finished in a short time, hesides heing done accurately.
Many of the high school's aspiring young artists display
their talents and originality in their own creative work,
such as painting points of interest in the school huilding
and in the neighhoring community, and in painting
murals. Results of their efforts are shown hy their winf
ning contests at the Burpee Gallery in Rockford. The
seniors spend a large portion of their time in the art
room, designing their yearhook with splendid effects.
Uur future Remhrandts and Grant Wniiids also provide
an interesting art exhihit throughout the school year in
the art annex adjoining the art room.
Arts and crafts, the home of our future industrial
designers, is under the direction of Mrs. Madden. The
diligent students hegin their work hy studying color
and design as it is applied to the various crafts. Multif
colored rallia is transformed into mats and haskets, hoth
large and small. Tahle mats, scarfs, helts and purses are

meetings outside speakers who give the memhers many helpful points and good
advice on varied and interesting suhjects. At the Christmas meeting the girls
chose to lvring gifts for The Kings Daughters Childrens Home, rather than for
themselves, which was a fine gesture. An outstanding project in their year's work
was to present a large mirror as a gift to the women teachers of Freeport High
School, to he placed in their rest room on second floor. Another nice feature of
their year's program was a Mnither's Day tea, which is always held in May. Their
June meeting took the form of an annual picnic, as is always the custom.

To this group goes the credit for the lack of earstrain

Comprising the operators of the public address system,
these boys are chosen from amongithe pupils of Mr.

STATE ONEfACT PLAY
The state onefact play, The Valiant, was
one which relied for its success hoth upon
suhtlc characterization and accurate inter'
pretation on the part of the actors. Neither
was lacking when, in Ivlarch, F.H.S. dra'
matics students presented their hit hefore
the sectional speech contest at Rockford.
In the oflice of Wairdeii Holt QBi11 Lichf
tenhergerj, the prisoner James Dyke fLee
Vxfeckerlyl, awaits a visitor who helievcs
him to he her prodigal hrother. This visitor,
Josephine Paris QPhyllis Reelj, pleads with
him to admit his identity. The scene, which
calls for emotional restraint, was done conf
vincingly hy these three young actors. Also,
in minor roles, doing a fine joh of acting
were Harry Slaght as Father Daly and
Selhy Haupert as the jailer.
DRAMA ' ' SPEECH
A fine record was turned in hy Freeport High
School students at the sectional event held at
Rockford East this year, including dehatc and
dramatic departments of twelve schools in Northf
ern Illinois. The overall count of points of Freef
port gave it a high second place, heing edged out
of first hy Elgin High with a mere halt' point
In the individual events Charles Englchardt
placed first in oratorical declamationg Cherie Sanf
ders first in verse reading, Boh Smith first in origf
inal oratoryg Phyllis Reel fourth in serious read'
ing: and The Valiant second. Thus rated, these
students were entitled to journey to Champaign,
Illinois, for the state contest, including first and
second place winners from sectional contests
throughout the entire state.
Here our contestants again turned in a line
record card, with Boh Smith placing second,
Charles Englehardt third, Cherie Sanders fourth,
in their individual events, giving Freeport an cnf
viahle place among the schools of the state.

In the Freeport High School Band Mr. Ku'
bitz has achieved an organization which is a
great asset not only to the school but to the
entire community as well. What would a pep
assembly, a basketball or football game be with'
out the stirring beat of the marches or the
"rockin' rhythm" of such numbers as "The
Gremlin Ballv? A fair question, and I believe
the majority would answer just as fairly that it
would be sorely lacking in a certain indefinable
element QMr. Kubitz' hat, ear muffs and dark
Though the band is probably better known
for its endeavors in the modern field, this type
of music is only a minor portion of the numf
bers studied during the year. The works of
such masters as Tchaikowsky, Schubert, and
Mendelssohn are contained in its repertoire,
and the student derives from their study the
knowledge and perspective along instrumental
lines which is invaluable in the appreciation
of Hne music.
The fact that the Freeport High School Band
has long been recognized as one of the top
high school bands in the northwestern part of
the country is proof that under the direction
of Mr. Kubitz the members receive a high def
gree of musical training and background.
Besides its game and assembly appearances,
the band gives an annual Christmas Concert
for the students of F. H. S. and a Spring Conf
cert for the general public. Though memories
of frozen fingers at football games and shirts
soaked with sweat after a basketball contest
will linger, in later years the personnel of the
band will remember most the enjoyment def
rived from playing with a group of this caliber.

There has heen a new addition to the ranks of those little gems of literature
coming under the general classification "Famous Last W4Jfd5.ll Lou hecame fully
aware of this fact when she returned from the printers one day and announced.
"Mr. Rice has set our deadline up two weeks." Therehy hegan one of the most
frantic and hectic weeks which that secret little room on second floor has ever
witnessed in an effort to put the hook through on time. However, the work of the
Polaris Staff was not limited to one week or even to one month hut has continued
throughout the entire school year.
The memhers of this staff are selected hecause of some special ahility in the
fields of composition, art work, etc., and whether or not the hook is a success is
due much more to them than to any padded covers or thick paper. In a system
such as ours where there are no journalism classes, all work on the yearhook must
come as an extracurricular activity and considerahle credit should go to these
students for accepting the responsihility and giving up much ot their free time in
order that the annual might he a success.

This golf season was not an ex'
ceptionally fine one, mainly because
the team was entirely new with
the exception of one letterman,
Bob Chapman. They were a group
of boys who tried hard to win each
match and gave the team the best
of their efforts. They finally got
into the "swing" and ended the
season by blanking the Dixon
"Dukes" 190. Most of the boys,
being underclassmen, have at least
two seasons of competition left and
should turn in some fine scores.
GCJLF and TENNIS
The latest edition of the Pretzel
tennis squad was the finest turned
out by the local "tribe" in many
years. Breezing through six dual
meets without a loss, the uracquetf
eersu then went on to place second
in the Big "8" conference meet
and take top honors at the section'
al tourney. As a result of their
fine work at the sectional meet, the
FranzfHaberkamp doubles combinf
ation and Butch Borchers were elif
gible to compete in the state finals
at Champaign. With three letter'
men returning fButch Borchers,
jack Cramer, and Wzilly Cabell,
the prospects for the coming season
look more promising than ever.
Jack Cramer, Roland Borchers, Wallace Gabel, jack Willets.
The track season of '45946 was better than average, being accented by the breaking
and rebreaking of records. Dick Randolph's outstanding performance in the mile run
added interest and significance to this field of sports. At the Big Eight meet at East
Aurora, Dick lowered the school record 14:47.51 in this run, which had not been cut
down in the sixteen years of its existence, to 4:4O.4. Dick has another season of comf
petition and is predicted to be one of the foremost milers in the state next season.
Another feature man was Captain Donn Hershberger, who severed the school record
in the 120 yard high hurdles. "Hershy" ran his best time at the State District meet in
115.4 seconds. "Hershy" was also a consistent point winner in the shot put. Freeport
copped 4th place in the Conference meet and also took 4th in the State District meet.
At the latter meet "Hershy" qualified for the State meet by taking top honors in the
shot put and second place in the high hurdles. Chiames' best competitive work for the
season was during the Conference meet, when he tossed his discus 127'21k" for second
place. The Sth annual occurrence of the fContinued on the next pagej

-lil participants. These events are a test which reveals the hest allfaround athletes in
the track curriculum. Top honors in this contest went to Elmer Schiriner, who won a
gold medal. The second prize of a silver medal was awarded to Tom Kerr, and a hronze
medal. third place, went to Frank Cowan. This season was the 3rd annual running of
the Freshman "SSH" and Sophomore Mile. These annual events help to predict alwility
and induce competition in the distance runs. The following hoys, all underclassmen.
