Principles of thc IrwquoiQ Luigi FREEPORT HIGH SCHOOL 1946 Lmnudw T.1ft's Status "Black Hawk" On Rwck Rivcr Urcgon, Illinois 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.

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.

" ' - l 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.

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? 35 MX-. - w 'x!+,!f f if -, ' i aff-i5f'P5 ' X' k 3 x 'Q , My ,M f q , Q' ww nf , P'J n. Qt 2 1 i s 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 administrative bodies. 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' ment lessons.

Police Magistrate REPORTERS 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! 38 Dagmar Hansen English V.

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. Uthcers are Caryl A.

Drannatics 1 SEHIUH 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?"

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. 45 xx1111 t11Lx w11111' 111.111, 11111.

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?

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, Bill Kloos Dick Schweder Roger Gallagher "Bill" l'Dick" "jerk" Qflontinued from preeeding pagej West Rockford seemed unimpressed hy our seven previous wins, however, and nosed us out 3632.

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. Howard Dkklllll Music Supervisor CAPPELLA ., x , Row 1 -f P.

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 success. 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.

'y all' T X hit gt it 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. Merle Blackwood rt Lucille Madden Crafts 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 woven on looms, the Weavers using the complicated pat' terns of antique coverlets. The new and popular plastic is the material used for making costume jewelry which every girl delights in making and wearing. A new type of clay is heing molded into lovely pottery which can he tired in the ordinary oven. The student enjoys many hours of fun, gains experience and appreciation of craft work, and is proud of his production when hc comf pletes his semesters work.

This cluh meets the fourth Vxfednesday in every month and has for its 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.

There you can dance, play pingf pong or indulge in a good magazine. The students are the ones who run the cluh, with the help of an adviser. This year the advisers are Bud and Jayne Lafferty. The jerc Board is comprised of high school students who meet once a month and discuss prohlems of operation and hring them hefore the Adult Board. The memhership now totals around four hunf dred and thirty students. These students thank the people of Freeport for their generous donations, which keep the cenf ter running. JUNIOR RED CROSS The ,lunior Red Cross has had an ex' cellent record this year in all its under' takings, due to the fine performance of its officers and adviser. lts first prof ject was the inemhership drive, which netted a ION? response from the stuf dents. During the March of Dimes cam' paign this group collected 551110 from the student hody of F. H. S. Although the war is over, there are still tasks for the Red Cross to do. It has laeen a successful year for the junior Red Cross in our school. Oflicers were: Betty Lou Rasmussen, president, Buck Stout, vice president: and Rita Ann Hruheclty, sccretaryftreasurer. Hill, L.

Dchntc SCIENCE CLUB For the members of the various science departments who are interested in some special subject or project, the Funnel and Flask serves as a group upon which they can inflict their views and ideas without fear of being told to "cease and desist." fShut up, that is.j The prof grams given at bifmonthly meetings are presented by one of the members and take the form of anything from a discussion of rockets fMr. Ely's pet subjectj to a demonstration of all sorts of radio apparatus and turf nishings. Our science club has been a registered memf ber of the Science Clubs of America since 1942, when it was started by Mr. Funk. Established for the purpose of creating an extracurricular interest in science and to encourage independent thinking, the Funnel and Flask has developed into an organization which provides a stimulus for the project minded students in school.

'L' PUBLIC ADDRESS To this group goes the credit for the lack of earstrain on the part of the student body during an assembly. Comprising the operators of the public address system, these boys are chosen from amongithe pupils of Mr. Vsfilcorfs electrofmechanics classes, and it is their ref sponsihility to see that the mike and the rest of the apparatus are in good working condition and will trans' mit the voices as desired. Though there are times when a loud screech or singular bray fnot coming from the lecturerj startles the listener, the boys deserve a lot of credit for their work in keeping the system in good order. 97 ..- -if' ,.-f VISUAL AID Rusu.ii't'li incn in tlic liultl of ltnowlcdgc liavr statcd that tlicrc are thi-uc typcs ul' lcarning: luarning from visual mcmory. from a mental nicniory of a writtcn pagv and from audio incniory, and tliat, of thc tlircc. visual memory is tlic lwcst.

Richard Luniliy Sofial SfllklICh 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 INDIVIDUAL EVENTS 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 margin. 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.

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 glasses, perhaps?J. 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. 101 l I 1 l .

"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. it 'W hf.fMi..

GOLF 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 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. 108 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.
