AlThough we cannoT be exacTly sure whaT Emerson believed when
he Tendered The advice, "HiTch Your Wagon To a STar", for us, The sTu-
denTs of Today-The builders of Tomorrow, peace mighT be The ulTimaTe
The wheels on our wagon mighT well be our four years aT F. H. S.
The hopes and idealism gained from Emerson's advice could serve as The
power To pull This wagon Toward The common sTar of peace. Our paTh
would noT be easy, buT The resulTs, rewarding.
As you Thumb Through This record of The Class of '53, may you pic-
Ture yourself aT The reins of a swifT wagon winding iTs way Toward a
sTar of peace.
From the first, brisk day of our seventh grade until the recessional
march at our June commencement, Mr. J. Wesley Southard has striven
to brighten our pathway to a successful future. No words could possibly
convey our appreciation for his untiring efforts. Therefore we, the class
of 1953, with sincere gratitude and deepest affection dedicate this year-
book to our principal and friend, J. WESLEY SOUTHARD.
Her sunny laughTer, her warm disposiTion,
The shaTTs of sunlighT which liT The red-gold of
her hair-all Those qualiTies and so many more
inTangible aspecTs of Gloria NiTschke's person-
aliTy we shall remember. Whenever seen in
F. H. S. halls, Gloria was "on The go", aTTending
a meeTing, chaTTing wiTh a classmaTe, or wriT-
ing an assignmenT.
A cheerful and TrusTworThy comrade, she
numbered among her friends, Teachers and sTu-
denTs alike. And so, because aT some Time in
our lives we are privileged To meeT someone
who will always live, Gloria's deaTh can never
seem final, raTher her shorT life will be a living

Teen years of service To our school, Mr. Huxley

lt is with sincere regret that we announce the
retirement of two members of our high school
faculty, Miss Gladys MacArthur of the History De-
partment and Miss Olive Swan, Librarian. Through
years of service Miss MacArthur and Miss Swan
have made many contributions for which they will
be long and affectionately remembered.
Before Miss Gladys MacArthur came to Freeport
High School in 1924, she had earned a B. A. degree
in history from Wellesley College. Since then she
has had a varied career including teaching, busi-
ness ventures, and overseas service with the Young
Women's Christian Association during World War
l. After instructing Latin classes for her first four
years with us, she turned to teaching history and
has aided many students in the World History
course. Besides this, she has been a Junior Red
Cross advisor for several years and has loyally sup-
ported all Red Cross drives and activities. She
will be remembered for her keen sense of humor
which often eased a tense situation or "poured oil
on troubled waters".
Miss Olive Swan, native of Warrensburg, New
York, graduated from Syracuse University in the
class of 'lo with an A.B. degree. She started her
career in Freeport High School as librarian, a post
which she has ably filled ever since. Many stu-
dents have sought and received valuable aid from
her in selecting books suitable for the standards of
high school reading. As faculty advisor to the
Library Club, she has trained students in the proper
care and management of a library.
The best wishes of students and faculty friends
follow Miss Swan and Miss MacArthur in their re-
TU the Class of 1953
Once again it is a privilege and pleasure
to greet a class about to graduate from
Freeport High School and to extend best
wishes from the Board of Education. We
are very happy to note the success that
has been yours during your years as under-
graduates and our most sincere hope is
for your future success in the years to
Your theme, "Hitch Your Wagon To a
Star", is certainly aiming high. It's really
a challenge and a true test of one's imag-
ination. Fortunately, you all are the prod-
uct of a free people and a free country
where family background, financial stand-
ing, or social position is no hinderance in
your selection of a career providing you
have the will to succeed. So to aim high
is perfectly American. The great need of
the world today is more young people with
such high ideals.
I personally have known a goodly num-
ber of the Class of 1953 from kinder-
garten through to graduation day, have
watched them in plays in elementary class-
es, on the athletic field, in the band and
choruses, and have admired them for their
high scholarship, good fellowship, and
school spirit of which the pages of this
yearbook will be a source of refreshing
memory in the years to come.

Greetings in the
Class of 1953
I wish I were able to convey to you the
thrill that comes to me in speaking in your
assemblies, in meeting you at your ath-
letic contests, your school plays, and the
pleasure and privilege of greeting you
along the high school corridors. As I look
at your accomplishments and records, I
feel great pride in the present generation
of young people.
Because of all that the Class of I953 has
signified in character, intellect, and school
spirit, of all that has been done to uphold
the standards and ideals of Freeport High
School through your thoughtful service and
diligent effort, it seems appropriate that
you should choose the theme -- "Hitch
Your Wagon to a Star", for the I953 Year-
book. That has been your purpose and
your method for four years. Great achieve-
ment always comes from striving to attain
high ideals. Any student who does not
catch the significance of loyal devotion to
high ideals has missed the better part of
May you continue to hold your standards
aloft. That one word - ideals - six let-
ters, tells the story and fixes the obiective
for educational, social and spiritual endea-
vor. The important story of mankind has
been and always will be one of purpose-
ful creation. Broad horizons, great desires,
virile hopes, and big programs constitute
the backgrounds and foundations for suc-
cess. As yet, we have not been able to

measure exactly the power of determina-
tion, initiative, inventiveness, enthusiasm,
will power and loyalty, but we do know
that collectively they constitute the vehicle
which, coupled with high ideals, carries us
as individuals to high places on the road
to achievement and worthwhile living.
May happiness and all good things worth
having be yours and may the training
which you have obtained in Freeport High
School aid in the attainment of your ambi-

ln centuries past, the art of celestial nav-
igation provided daring seamen with guides
necessary to permit expeditions to sail un-
charted seas, The constancy of the stars in
the Heavens increased the faith and hope
of many would-be-doubters and allowed
men to direct their course and to calculate
The desert nomad, the trader of the East
leading heavy-laden caravans, the Indian
making his way through trackless forests
followed the stars that lit the pathways.
The quenchless brightness of these heaven-
ly bodies gave to the humblest of men and
to royalty alike that comfort and courage
which comes from keeping ones sights
Few graduating -classes from Freeport
High School have been forced to face as
many challenges as loom before the Class
of 1953. War lurks on the horizon. The ec-
onomic future is uncertain. The freedoms
of the American citizen are subiected to su-
preme tests both from within and without,
The everyday dealings among men call for
high moral values and hardy physical stam-
"Hitch your wagon to a star." As of old
the brightness of your star can be the in-
spiration that urges you onward toward
your ultimate goal and the guide post that
may well light your road to success. The
constancy of your star can bring you hap-
piness and the fulfillment of your ambition.
Today's world requires that you strive to
be exceptionalg that you equip yourself
mentally, morally, physically and spiritually
to face and solve your problems. The qual-
ity of your ambition to meet and conquer
your world will be reflected in the ultimate
attainment of your goal.
Class of 1953, this is your challange. U
"Hitch your ambition to an ideal." 23 "Hitch
your wagon to a Star.". Good luck, good
fortune and God's blessing always.

your problems. Entering these offices with
their cozy home-like atmospheres, students

Miss Mary Didas and the untiring efforts
of Mr. C. Overton Tremper, senior high

VUYAGEUR EDITORIAL ST!-XPP
Senior year, the grueling Variety Show rehear-
sals, the pride in our Senior Play, and finally that
slow, maiestic march at graduation - all these in-
cidents which are the very spirit of F.H.S. we have
attempted to embody in the 1953 Voyageur. Some-
times it was difficult to express our exact thoughts
and memories in terms of layouts and copy, other
times the innovations we planned frightened and
baffled us. Although during those doubtful mo-
ments we were willing to return to comfortable
and conservative methods, we kept on because we
felt that you, the Class of '53, would want a truly
Yet this staff, like any other yearbook group
from time immemorial, was torn by arguments and
trials. Perhaps it was only Joanie, who, as Literary
Editor, had given up trying to decipher someone's
copy, or Neil, who realized too late that the photo-
grapher's schedules had never been compiled. But
there was always Emil, our peacemaker, who wrote
sports copy with one hand and smoothed our
furrowed brows with the other. Jean was virtually
"our girl Friday" who besides typing copy, never
forgot to call the printer or remind us of various
meetings. Russ was the quiet one, he'd say little
and then arrive at the next meeting with a col-
lection of breathtakingly beautiful drawings. Gerri
had the art of making us laugh in crises, as Girls'
Sports Editor she knew the latest gossip from the
locker rooms and kept us well-informed. Evelyn,
typing diligently, was the phenomenon, she re-
mained a lady, never raising her voice through our
more heated tiffs. There was' Lea who eagerly
refilled our digestive systems with pretzels and
licorice and satisfied our curiousity with all the club
happenings. Rosie, or Rosemary in her more sedate
moments, worked over her pages like a mother
bear guarding her cubs. The pages are, of course,
the Senior Band section.
However, the whole staff is united on one
point: that we owe the final results, the very
essence of our yearbook, to Mrs. Albert, who
miraculously endured our tantrums, changes of
mind, and even our occasional apathy, to guide
us in producing this book.
And so we end those cherished years at Free-
port High School. -If in the future this book will
aid you in recalling nostalgically those precious,
fleeting moments of high school life, then we will
have accomplished the supreme task of a year-
book staff: to enclose between the two covers of
a book the very spirit of our Alma Mater.

The pinnacle of success
for every senior is induction
into the Senior National Honor
Society. Only the fifteen per
cent membership is entitled to
wear the gold emblem of this
organization, the keystone
bearing the flaming torch with
the letters C. S. L. S. inscribed
on its base. These letters
stand for the four cardinal
principles of the Honor Soci-

these basic principles as a

On a cold, brisk December morning an air of
expectancy hovers over the high school auditori-
um. As the rear doors slowly open, many femin-
ine voices can be heard in the distance singing "O
Come, Emanuel". After this impressive intro-
duction, girls in chorus gowns holding lighted
candles proceed down the middle aisle two by
two singing in beautiful harmony "Adeste Fi-
delis". This traditional Christmas processional is
a highlight of the school year not to be for-
gotten by either the student body or the chorus.
This outstanding F. H. S. musical organiza-
tion also performs at the First Sunday Afternoon
Concert and is featured at the Spring Concert
where the entire group of approximately lO5
voices bedeck the F. H. S. stage with a gorgeous
array of pastel formals. Although many rehear-
sal hours are required for these performances,
they are forgotten when the finished produc-
tion is the overwhelming blend of six-part music
which is sung by the talented group of Sr. High
girls. The credit'for the splendid iob of organ-

This enthusiastic group is a main iunior high school attraction.

in the Senior Girls' Chorus.
The Mixed Chorus, a fine group of hardworking musicians, de-
serves much credit for their performances at the various concerts and
other school events throughout the year. The melodic four-part har-
mony of the boys and girls under the direction of Miss Miriam Roberts
is ample reward for their many hours of rehearsals.

From the first autumn football game until
June graduation, the band has kept busy with
its many activities. Looking back over this year,
many of us remember the twirlers' polka, the
Iwo Jima pageant, the slightly damp Baldwin
game, and our performance at the Polo Grounds.
Our band received recognition by being invited
to the Orange Bowl Game and the world pre-
miere of "Stars and Stripes Forever" and by hav-
ing a feature story appear in the Sunday News.
Cur concerts, opened by the "Theme", leave
us with many fine memories. We can still recall
the beautiful melody of "Thendara" and the
never-to-be-forgotten Spring Concert finale, "l
Like It Here". The year would not have been
complete without the band's performances at
the Babylon Tulip Festival, Jones Beach, and the
This year the Junior Band cul-
minated its year's activities by
participating in the Memorial Day
parade. After long hours of dili-
gent practice these hard-working
musicians hope to be worthy
someday of becoming Senior
Band members. Their ultimate
goal is the F. H. S. maior letter
"F" which is awarded to all four
year band members.

From the days of the first cool autumn practices until late into the
winter months, the husky men of Freeport High work diligently and
prepare themselves to represent our school on the gridiron. This sea-
son our bruisers, led by Jack Raynor and ably coached by Bill Ashley
and line coach Vincent Zuaro, had to be satisfied with a fairly success-
ful record of three wins, four losses, and one tie. Yet, the won and
lost record of our team does not show the stamina, the fight, and the
spirit that the squad displayed throughout the entire season hampered
as they were by numerous iniuries and a seemingly unending series
of bad breaks. The climax of the season was our strong stand against
the highly publicized and superior Mepham squad. Although the game
finished in Mepham's favor, the I9-7 score proved to be a decisive
moral victory for Freeport. Many teams come and go, but the drive
and determination displayed by the '52 squad will long be remem-
bered in Freeport High School.
J. V. AND FRESHMAN FOOTBALL
To become a football player worthy of a berth on Freeport's
Varsity squad, it takes not days, not weeks, but two to three years of
grueling practice that quickly separates the men from the boys. Con-
trary to common belief, football is a game which requires not only
brawn but also fight and determination, the same fight and determina-
tion necessary for molding successful character and personality so
useful in the future. This year's J. V. squad, led by Mr. George Moser
and Mr. Victor Kirsch, started slowly but finished up the season in
good form with a record of three wins and five losses. The freshmen,
coached by Joe Devlin and Clarence Hoener, had better luck winning
four out of seven encounters.
Keep working, boys, and in the near future you'll hear the stands
cheer your name as you proudly march down the field for F. H. S.
As the '53 alumni of Freeport High look back on their senior
year, thoughts of the basketball team and its thrilling games will be
some of the freshest in their minds. Memories of Cantilli's driving lay-
ups, Raynor's spring-like jumps, Okun's sparkling plays, and Childres'
deadly one-handers will remind us of the wonderful nights spent
cheering our team onward. This year's squad, suffering from the loss
of Coach Harry Erhart through illness, did their best under Coach Russ
Terry and emerged with a record of 2 wins out of I2 tries. The team
climaxed their season by beating Baldwin and spoiling Baldwin's
chances for the championship. Here's a host of congratulations to a
team whose spirit didn't fade when the chips were downl

J. V. AND FRESHMAN BASKETBALL
The '53 J. V. basketball team, coached for the first time by John
Augustine, showed a continuous fighting spirit that will tend to in-
sure us of a winning varsity team next season. Even with a record of
4 wins and i2 losses, the team's spirit was not dampened, and they
went on to send their star, George Emma, to finish the season with the
In the Cleveland Avenue gym where our basketball teams of
tomorrow get their start, our freshman squads develop their plays and
their skills to be used in the coming years. This year the Freshman
squad, under the supervision of Mr. Joe Schneller, finished with a
record of six wins and eight losses in thirteen games and displayed
a great deal of ability which guarantees us a successful future for
basketball in F. H. S.
Freeport's 1952 baseball team, coached for
the first time by Win Tuthill and suffering from
a lack of experienced boys, did its best under
the circumstances and completed the season
with a three won -- eighteen lost record. Co-cap-
tained by hard-hitting Phil Roberts and the bril-
liant fielder, George Kandiloros, the squad
reached its climax when it trounced the sup-
posedly unbeatable Baldwin team. Since this
year was definitely a building year, the '53
squad coupled with the graduates from the ioint
J. V.-Frosh squad should have the training and
ability to make a strong bid for the champion-

In no other sport but cross country is such
a high degree of determination and will power
needed. There is some unique quality in these
boys that makes them keep going when every
nerve and muscle in their body says its time to
stop. Led by coach "Red" Miller and captain Bill
Hillebrecht, the '52 squad, in the face of stiff
competition and inopportune injuries, emerged
with a fine record of two wins and five losses.
The climax of the season was the team's finish-
ing seventh out of twenty-three competing
schools and ahead of Mepham in the Long Island
Sectionals. Another creditable feature was cap-
tain Hillebrecht's entering in the state finals in
which he finished forty-fifth out of a field of
ninety competitors. Congratulations, boys! We're
all looking forward to an even more successful
season this year.
TRACK AND FIELD
ln order to make any advancement in Track
a boy must be in constant training and in the
peak of condition at all times and must display
more individual ability and effort than in any
other high school sport. The '52 squad coached
by Mr. Randal Powell and Mr. John Augustine
and captained by Ray Clements, completed the
season with a fine record of three wins and five
losses. A number of our boys were invited to
the Nassau County Finals and finished in fine
form. We would like to congratulate these boys
and the other members of the squad for their
fine fighting spirit. From the accomplishments
and experiences they gained, a successful '53
season is insured.
Lacrosse is rapidly gaining popu-
larity in both Freeport and in many
of the other high schools on Long
Island. Accordingly, coach Bill Ashley
and his men have gained the needed
experience and completed their 1952
season with an excellent record of
eight wins and three losses which
placed them second in their competi-
tion, The climax of each lacrosse sea-
son is the all-star game at Jones
Beach. This year, four of our men
were invited: Captain Hank Band-
hold, Gary Boyle, Rolf Larsen, and
Jack Raynor. Another outstanding
feature of this season was the J. V.
squad's remarkable undefeated record.
Although not an outstanding spec-
tator sport mostly because of the lack
of space and facilities, bowling holds
many thrills and exciting moments
for the participants. Coached by Mr.
Randal Powell and led by captain
Dick Morrell, our boys kept up their
continuous fighting spirit and enioyed
a fairly successful season, aided at
times by remarkable games rolled by
their stars, Hank Uman and John
Ehret. The J. V. squad also showed
many fine possibilities, and we're
looking forward to an excellent '54
Echoing through the corridors of
the Caroline G. Atkinson School on
Seaman Avenue, the shots of our
hard-working rifle team may be heard
every afternoon. This year, the Free-
port High sharpshooters, under the
leadership of Mr. Walter Joy and
co-captains Bob Boothby and Pete
Cattano, had a good season despite
the lack of experienced firers. Finish-
ing with a record of 4 wins and 9
losses, this year was primarily devot-
ed to building a rifle team insured
of a championship bid next year.
