AliAYlC'l"l'lC College has a large body of loyal alumni, men who stand ready to do anything in their power for their Alma Materg but the college has no more interested nor active friend than Mr. F. W. lfreeman, who, although not a son of the college, has for several years devoted his time and talents to the wel- fare of Lafayette. To enumerate all the services of Mr. Freeman would be an almost impossi- ble task and many of them have been of such a nature that they will never be brought to light. Mr. Freeman first became prominent in the affairs of the college in the fall of roto when he came to the rescue of the puny college band and by ceaseless labors has made of it perhaps the best college band in the East. In connection with this organization he has conducted two rehearsals every week, given private lessons free of charge to those who have needed them, saved the band seycral times from financial ruin and been instrumental in securing uniforms for the whole organiza- Mr. F. W. Freeman tion, This year he stepped in and assumed leadership of the Musical Clubs just as they were about to be disbanded. By his characteristic enthusiasm and hard work he has brought' them to the high plane of excellence which they held some eight or ten years ago. The versatility of the man was demonstrated in another form this fall when injuries to the football team demanded a special medical adviser and the Athletic Association was unable to stand the expense of a resident physician. Mr. Freeman immediately put his expert medical knowledge and skill at the disposal of the Association and throughout the season cared for the injured players and did what he could to keep the others in condition. But that which has endeared Mr. Freeman most to the students of Lafayette College is the great number of little kindnesses which he has shown to individual students. Here and there on the campus students who have been sick or in trouble have received from Mr. Freeman those thoughtful attentions which they will always remember. The big-heartedness of the man can be best appreciated only when we consider the fact that for all l1is services he has never received a remuneration of any kind and that his only motive has been an altruistic interest in Lafayette College. The MELANGI5 Board wishes to take this opportunity to show the high esteem of the students and Alumni for this loyal friend-Mr, F, W, Freeman. 259
