SENIOR CLASS OFFICERS
Graduation affords us, the class of 1936, the opportunity of applying effectively for
the first time the casts of our characters which have been moulded during our high school
careers. We Wish to express our appreciation to the citizens of our city for the chance
they have given us to equip ourselves for the future. We entered Abraham Lincoln as
freshmen, and through the process of years, we have now become seniors, possessing a
clearer outlook on life, a basic foundation for knowledge, and formulas for an honest,
intelligent way of living.
To our instructors We extend our gratitude for their guidance in these four years of
learning. Through them we have gained a more detailed study of the past, present, and
future in all the realms of study. We have been afforded the best in the opportunity for
fortifying ourselves for the situations confronting us in the years ahead.
Despite individual grades, honors, and intellects, the same paths of success have been
opened to each of us. We can take out into the World only that with which we have
availed ourselves. Our high school days have come to their close-a new life lies before.

TI-IE ART COLLECTION
The Blue Boy stands before us. I-Ie draws no breath. His pulses do not throb. And
yet he is living-living and exemplifying art for all those who pause to study him.
The group pictured here-the famous Blue Boy and the statues, Diana Robing and
I-Iebe-are typical of a remarkable collection of paintings and statuary in the halls and
rooms of Abraham Lincoln, a collection that is one of the largest of its kind in the schools
of the Middlewest.
In our halls are approximately sixty reproductions of paintings of undisputed reputa-
tion, and three originals. Such masters as Raphael, Wluistler, Gainsborough, Corot, Van
Dyke, Sargent, Reynolds, and Velasquez are represented. A group of twelve French,
Dutch, and American modems hang in the study hall.
In the classrooms are some twenty-five famous reproductions, and a number of valu-
able photographs. Besides the paintings, twelve pieces of statuary are distributed through-
out the building, and every morning we are greeted in the front hall by our best beloved
statue, a large one of St. Gaudens' Abraham Lincoln.
Seven plaques and medallions and three sets of freizes are included in the collection.
Une of these sets is Thorwaldsen's "Triumphal Entry of Alexander Into Babylon". An-
other is from the Parthenon of Greece. The senior class is presenting the school with the
Cantoria Frieze by Lucca del Robbia this spring.
The present collection has been many years in the making and it is being added to
Art is not a sermon-it has no moral. Yet art creates an atmosphere in which the
good unconsciously grows, the beautiful refines, and the perfect suggests the perfect.
THE CARNEGIE COLLECTION
Because of its collection of fine paintings and reproductions and its outstanding
program of mass aesthetic appreciation, Abraham l.incoln was presented with the gift of
an Art Teaching Reference Set by the Carnegie Foundation, this year. In this way it has
come to possess one of the finest and most complete high school art libraries and exhibits
in the country.
Included in this unusual addition to the art source material of the school are books
on all phases of art: general histories, volumes on many types of art, on the contribution
of various countries, and on the worlc of noted individuals.
Nearly all of these books are lavishly illustrated and many of them consist largely
of beautiful pictures. There are books on ancient art, on arts and crafts, and on costume
and furniture. A large number of volumes deal witlw the history and the broad subject
of art itself. Four volumes deal with medieval art. The contribution of the Rennaissance
to art is discussed in twelve books. Two interesting divisions are those on prehistoric art
and the great masters.
A most important section is that containing mounted many of the finest worlcs of
art in all ages: paintings, sculpture, architecture, and mosaics. There are approximately
840 reproductions in this collection.
The reproductions of modern art which accompanied the collection have been framed
and hung in 315, giving the room the pleasing effect of an art gallery rather' than that of
a study hall.
The entire collection of books and mounted pictures is housed in an attractive cabinet
built by students. Although the gift has been in the school less than a year, it has dem-
onstrated its value in many ways, and the work almost of every pupil has been affected
Who can estimate the value of this collection in fitting youth for richer living through
a deeper appreciation of beauty?

As students of Abraham Lincoln High School, we are indeed privileged to have the
opportunity of entering into many varied outside activities.
Coming first in publications is the Echoes, a weekly newspaper put out by second
semester journalism pupils. The Crimson and Blue, yearly annual, is published by a selected
group of seniors. The entire year's worlc of the school is surveyed in the book.
Forensics include debate, declam, and extempos. Contests in these divisions originate
in the various literary societies. The picked winner of each society then competes with
other society winners and in this manner, the school's champion is chosen. Poise, character,
speaking ability and similiar qualities are all promoted in this group.
Band, orchestra, and glee clubs are given periods of their own during the day in
which to practice. Each year an operetta is given by the senior glee members and is
assisted by the orchestra. Contests of sub-district, district, state and national origin are
entered as part of the project in music. Special voice classes are also held.
There are nine literary societies-five for girls and four for boys. It is in these
organizations that culture, leadership, character, and sportsmanship are highly developed.
Everyone is given a chance to show his talents in one way or another, through plays,
debate, or as an officer of the group.
The athletic, commercial, dramatic, and language clubs have originated from their
respective school divisions. They are usually organized for entertainment or sports.
Coming as a climax to all the enjoyable activities are the plays. Every year through
the co-operation of each literary society, five comedies are given. The junior class produces
a mystery play and the senior class a drama. Besides these, one short Christmas play is

For thirty-six years, our school paper, the Echoes, has served its purpose and edited
the news accurately and with timeliness every week of the school year.
The entire staff consists of pupils of Abraham Lincoln journalism classes.
Covering the school in a blanket-like fashion the Echoes staffs admit that exclusive
interviews, scoops, and going to press are not unlike hard work. But with the capable ad-
vice of H. Arthur Lee and Miss Eleanor Baptist, Abraham Lincoln scribes found their
difficulties greatly eased.

Three girls stir their audience to laughter and tears, and win over nine other con-

Harry Jensen climaxed a highly successful speaking career at Abraham Lincoln by
winning third place in the state original oratory contest. Jensen began as a sophomore with
the male lead in "Peg O' My Heart," and continued to distinguish himself in debate,
oratory, extemporaneous speaking, and dramatics.
Although other music groups have earned equally enviable records in contests, to
many A. L. pupils i'music" means the band. And small wonder. What organization is
more often in the spotlight than the band in its brilliant crimson and blue uniform coats,
gleaming white duck trousers, sparkling buttons, and shining silver and gold horns? At
games, on the field or in the gym, at inspection, and in all the parades, the picture isn't
complete until the arrival of the bandsmen. And-finest of all, you can always count on
their being on the job, whether that job is marching down a frozen football field between
halves, with the icy wind blowing a gale, or leading the regiment in parade on one of
those sultry, 950 in-the-shade days of May.
All this is just the marching, blaring band of the open air. But there's another phase
of the work of the band, the one not so well known, perhaps, but even more important.
lt goes on each day during the sixth period and frequently after school and in the evening,
when the band, in shirts-sleeves now, sits and drills, learning the fundamentals of tech-
nique and expression at first, and then applying them in the selections which they play
at concerts and contests.

This year, the band, together with the orchestra and glee clubs, presented a series of
Sunday vesper concerts in the gymnasium. They were successful in char they not only
afforded an opportunity for these groups to gain experience, but they also gave the patrons
of the school an opportunity to hear what the students were accomplishing.
Since the band won superior rating in the state contest last year, it did not compete in
the district or state contests, but was privileged to go directly to the national contest at
Cleveland this year. As that contest came very late in the term, it was impossible to
obtain the results of the competition for this annual. lt is certain, however, that if the
band members went, they did very well, for it is the concensus of opinion among compe-
tent observers that this yearis band was the equal, if not the superior, of any band that
ever represented Abraham Lincoln.

Since the orchestra had competed in the National High School Orchestra contest at
Madison, Wisconsin, in 1935, this year's work consisted mainly in laying the foundation
among underclassmen especially, through the district and state contests, for an organiza-
tion in 1937 which would be well able to compete with the finest groups of the entire
In this objective, the orchestra has been very successful, as can be determined before
the outcome of the state contest can be learned. Although several strong musicians were
lost by graduation, others have come to fill their places, and, as a whole, the general stand-
ard of musicianship seems to be higher now than in the past few years, at least.

The showing which the orchestra made at the district contest was very fine and in the
state contest the organization was given a superior rating. Incidentally, this year's contest
number is one of the most beauiful that has ever been chosen-"Symphony in D Minor"
by Cesar Frank.
Naturally, these contest activities do not constitute all of the work of the orchestra.
It furnishes music for almost all the plays, the operetta, and the various assemblies and
programs of the school. Taken all in all, its contribution to the school and to individual
pupils is probably as great as that of any other organization. Certainly no one can play in
the orchestra during n period of years and not gain an appreciation of music that will
enrich his whole life.
One of the largest, most active, and most useful organizations of the entire school,
the senior glee clubs embraces the fifty members of the boys' glee and sixty of the girls'.
This group contains the pick of the singing talent of the school, and this year bids
fair to duplicate the very fine record of last yearls group at the State Musical Festival.
These singers have all Won their places in competition with others, and when a still
smaller group is picked to go to the contests, they will also be chosen in the same way.

The Junior Glee clubbers seldom appear before the public, devoting themselves rather
to building a solid musical background for their later careers in the senior groups.
One of the most colorful, bright and picturesque operettas was "Riding Down the
Slcyf' written by Goeffrey Morgan, which was presented by the Senior Glee clubs.
Spanish costumes, colorful clances, and good acting molded together made every minute
of this production real entertainment. Witli Very capable leads, as well as a good supporting
cast, the show was one of the highlights of the season.
Under the most capable direction of Miss Kathleen Shaw, and with the untiring co-
operation of her most efficient business and production staffs, the operetta was a great

"Pigs" was the Ero-Ionian play, clever and successful, which starred several of the
underclassmen. One Ero won the humorous division of the declamatory contest. The
debate team was excellent, although it did not win any outstanding honors.
In honor of the new members, a George Washington tea was given, offering the girls
a taste of the social life of the society. The social affairs of the year came to a pleasant
climax with the lVlother-Senior banquet.

The Logos made it a big year. First came the presentation of that sensational comedy,
"Mrs, Bumpstead Leighf' The smoke had barely cleared from the scenes of the play,
when the debate team came through to win the boys' championship, only to be defeated in
Z1 close debate by the girls' champions in the finals. ln the defeat, however, honors were
conferred upon the Logo president.
In providing a worthy project for the school, the Logos topped the list by providing
funds for the construction of a Traffic Board which will be used for class room study
after its completion.

MASQUE AND WIG
The center of Abraham Lincolnls curricular activities is the Masque and Wig-the
world of greasepaint, footlights, and rehearsal!
Through the organized efforts of Masque and Wig, the school has enjoyed a number
ofhwell-produced plays. A "current accomplishments" project has created appreciation and
stimulated interest in the Broadway stage and in superior screen productions.
To the casual observer, Room 212 may look like any ordinary classroom, but to the
dramatic student it introduces a world of difference!

1935 FOOTBALL SEASON
Obviously handicapped by the laclc of veteran material and weight, the 1935 Abra-
ham Lincoln high school football team had an unfortunate season as far as victories were
concerned, winning only one game of a tough ten game schedule. Yet the seemingly
hapless Lynx gained wide recognition for their flashes of power in several offensive thrusts
and goal line stands. Local sports scribes also repeatedly praised their fighting, do-or-die
spirit in face of overwhelming odds.
if In the initial encounter of their formidable schedule, the Lynxsters encountered
Omaha Benson, later winner of the Intercity and Interstate crowns, in a hard fought battle,
September 20 under the Tee .lay "arcs." The Bunnies were victorious by a 13 to 0 count.
The following week on the same field the surprisingly strong Omaha Techsters
hammered over a 27 to 0 win.
Scoring an upset, Iowa School for the Deaf emerged victorious 6 to 0 the following
week in the first game played on the newly improved hilltop field.
Omaha Central's strong defending intercity championship team invaded the Lynx
coup next and found tough going in squeezing out a hard contested 14 to 0 victory on the
West End field.
Improving steadily, the squad took its first and only trip of the season, October 18,
to battle the bullcy Missouri Valley aggregation. Here their pent up scoring power re-
leased itself, giving the Lynx their first victory of the year by the score of 12 to 0.
A victory in the case of the Lynx was not' a tonic, as the Lynx dropped into a mid-
season slump, losing to Glenwood 35 to 0 and Logan 40 to 0 in two successive weeks.
The annual Thomas Jefferson game was played Armistice Day on the snow covered
hilltop field. Handicapped by the snow, the light Lynxsters, depending on speed, were
bottled up, resulting in their bullcier rivals gaining an 18 to 0 victory.
After being doped to lose by six touchdowns in the Sioux City game, an inspired
Lynx team held its powerful opponents to three scoreless stanzas, only to lose by a freak
play caused by a slow whistle late in the last period, giving the visitors a seven point
The "Turkey Day" game scheduled with Omaha South was cancelled which resulted
in the carrying through of plans for a second Thomas Jefferson game. The Lynx again
provided a thriller, losing only by the close score of 7 to 2 on the icy, wind-swept Tee Jay
Of the twenty-three boys who received letters, only twelve closed their careers at the
end of the Tee Jay game. Those twelve will little remember the team's defeats, but the
happy memories of the companionships and good clean fun on the hilltop can never be
forgotten. To the school the season's record little matters, but the characteristics-hard
fighting play, never-give-in attitude, and clean sportsmanship-which are the chief goals in
athletic training, made Abraham Lincoln proud of the 1935 football team.

Bernie Verdin's consistently steady play
made him a bright spot in the line. Bernie
brought his Hilltop playing to a close with
two letters tucked away.
Opponents thought twice before attempt-
ing a play through Roy Claar's tackle position.
His fine defensive work pulled the team out
of many a tough spot.
Another under-classman who gained a
starting position at guard is Joe Paladino.
Gains were seldom made through the guard
position without joe's say so.
Another new comer who gave a good
showing of himself, holding clown the tackle
position, is dimpled Bill Bell. Bill was noted
for his stubborn fighting spirit.

of the best blockers on the squad, and a deadly
tackler. Tom will be missed as much as the
brightest star on the squad.

with one letter.
FIRST TEAM BASKETBALL
Thirteen defeats in eighteen scheduled games, the sectional tournament won, and
twice victors in the district tournament before losing to the strong Logan five in the finals
is the record compiled by the 1935-36 basketball team.
After losing the opening game of the season to St. Francis, the team suffered a
disastrous slump which cost them eight straight games before they broke into the winning
column with an overwhelming victory at Glenwood's expense. During the next six weeks
the team played up-and-down ball winning when "doped" to lose and vice versa. The
two important games with our West End rivals, however, ended in defeat.
In tournament play, the Lynx came back strong to win the sectional with top heavy
victories over Malvern, Sidney, and Oakland. Apparently headed for the state tourna-
ment, the team continued its winning tactics in the district tournament, toppling Manning
and Villisca in quick order before losing its heart breaking 23-20 decision to Logan.

FRANK FRIAR-A dead shot
plus the ability to control the
tip-off made Frank a valuable
asset to the team this year.

throughout the season earned
him a position on the all-South-

KENNETH WRIGHT-A re-
markable ball-handler, "Coty

year and, barring injuries,
should fill the shoes vacated by
WARREN RADTKE-With two
years of competition still ahead
of him, this sophomore guard
proved worthy in every game.
Possessing the stamina, build,
and other qualifications of a
good guard, he should be a
standout on the team his re-
maining two years.
LEON SKELTON'-'Time and
time again breaking up the op-
ponents' defense made "Skelly"
a main cog on defense. Play-
ing a bruising, hard-driving
game, Leon was in every play,
and will return next year again
to worry opponents.
Bos SPELLMEYER-Playing his
first year of varsity competi-
tion, Bob showed up well when-
ever he was sent into a game.
His speed and ruggedness
should be main factors in
making next year's team a win-
GLENN MARUN-Another lad,
who, although hampered by in-
juries, showed up to the op-
ponents' disadvantage when-
ever injected into a fray. A
junior, Glenn has one more
year of competition and should
be a thorn in the side of op-
posing forwards next season.
Boyn WALKER - A junior,
Boyd displays a natural apti-
tude for the game. This,
coupled with his speed and
willingness, should make Boyd
a valuable man on the team his
DICK FREEMAN Dick's the
kind of player you like to
watch. Never brilliant, but al-
ways steady and dependable,
putting his whole heart and soul
into the game. Dick was a
nightmare to opposing for-
wards and every basket made
past him was a hard earned
BILLY HALPIN-With an un-
canny eye for the basket and a
remarkable knack for slipping
past opposing guards, Billy was
teamed with Quick to provide
the team,s scoring punch. Al-
though Quick graduates, Hal-
pin will return next season and
gives promise of being one of
the finest forwards in the state.
BOB FULLER The man be
hind the scenes," "Red" was
well-fitted for his position of
manager and performed his re-
wardless duties faithfully and
In spite of the fact that the reserves were made up largely of sophomore boys, the
team enjoyed a fairly successful season.
Besides winning more than fifty per cent of the games, the team showed up well in
the County tournament, losing only to Thomas Jefferson in a hard fought battle. They
defeated T. later in a return game.
Several prospective stars were discovered who will probably push the veterans for
varsity berths next year.

Track prospects were the brightest in years on the Hilltop with the return of six
lettermen and a strong crop of last year's reserves to form a well balanced squad.
The 1935 state champion two-mile relay team with three veterans back was again tops
in the state.
With three lettermen back, the sprint relays were strong contenders for the state and
Missouri Valley titles.
The hurdlers and high jumpers fast developed into championship form after having
been hampered by laclc of veteran material at the beginning of the season.
Weakness was evident in the pole vault and discus events, but the javelin and shot
put, with lettermen on the heaving end, were consistent point getters.

system. Besides basketball, baseball, volleyball, and track, the G.A.A. sponsors a number
of hikes, breakfasts, and parties.
During nine years of existence, the Girls' Athletic Association has excelled in every
activity which it has undertaken. It is composed of the most capable girls. Eligibility
consists of earning fifty points by being a member of some team or by participating after

arouse interest throughout the school by sponsoring inter-society tournaments.
Inter-society basketball, volleyball, baseball, and captain ball tournaments are held each
year between the different literary societies. The winners are awarded the G. A. A. cup
on honor day.

GIRLS' RIFLE CORPS
One of the oldest organizations in the school is the Girl's Rifle Corps, having been
organized in 1922 by Miss Margarette Howland. It was first sponsored by the G. A. A.,
but it is now an independent organization.
The membership is limited to one hundred girls. The initial dues are 52.00 a year.
After a girl has reached the mark of an expert and is a senior, she becomes eligible
for one of the two highest honors at the Military Ball. She may be Honorary Colonel,
or Honorary Major. These girls are chosen for these positions by popular vote of the
R. O. T. C.
There are also five company sponsors and a band sponsor chosen by popular vote of
the boys. In order to be eligible for one of these positions, a girl must have received her
