Greatly adding to our school's equipment for carrying out this ideal are the Carnegie Art and Music Teaching sets, including libraries of excellent books and records, and an unusual art exhibit. The Carnegie Foundation gifts have been obtained in the last two years by the efforts of Principal G. W. Kirn. Besides approximately 840 reproductions of art in the library gift, and 650 records in the music set, more than 100 reproductions of paintings and statuary, friezes and medallions, grace our halls and classrooms. The aesthetic appe-al of our school is our chief pride. K D . Behiratinn grid ECAUSE the cultural aspects of life are con- sciously placed foremost in Abraham Lincoln High School, We dedicate the 1937 Crimson and Blue to the Fine Arts. The school administration of Council Bluffs has planned and Worked to make its school buildings veri- table centers of fine arts in themselves. We see this in our halls, beautified With excellent copies of old master- pieces, we see it in the extensive art research library and music recording library, We see it in the emphasis placed on music, art, dramatics, and literature in the curric- ulum. - "Little by little We are fashioned into the image of all We have seen and heard, known and meditatedf' says Spalding. "If We learn to live with all that is fairest and purest and best, the love of it all Will in the end become our very life."

The lights fade to dimness, a hush comes over the audience, and here is the last act of the Senior Class of 1937. White dresses form a sharp contrast with clark suits, but the same loolc of determination is written on All the faces of the actors. We have completed our apprenticeship in stock and are now ready for ubig time." After years spent in the shadow of the wings memorizing tedious lines, learning pur- poseful movements and gestures, we talce our places in the spotlight and present to you what We hope will he a play that will live in our memories forever.

For three years we have existed in the shadow of the trenches waiting for the "zero hour", for our chance to win our long- hoped-for laurels. The chance, our senior year, is the culmination of our careful prepara- tion. As juniors we have encountered many shell holes and struggled through the barbed- wire of disappointments. However, there have been frequent "leaves of absence" when we could take time out just to enjoy being juniors-plays, dances, assemblies, and music. We have made many true friends, "buddies", who will carry on with us through our senior year.

Whether it is a football game in sub-zero weather, a basketball game with snow drifts two or three feet high outside, or when they lead the R.O.T'.C. regiment down the street on those blistering hot parade and inspection days, the band is always on the job performing its duties faithfully. To obtain the skill which they exhibit, they must put in many hours of conscientious study. They worlc the latter half of sixth period, and many times after school and in the evenings. The band and orchestra alternate each year in going to the State and national contests. This year the band went to the state contest at Iowa City in the early part of May to uphold its fine reputation gained through previous contests.

It provides music for the operetta, the literary society plays, various assemblies and numerous pro- grams given throughout the year. It also takes a large part in the series of Sunday vesper concerts along with the band and glee clubs, and finishes off the year by assisting with the Commencement exercises given at the city auditorium. Besides these services, the orchestra has given the pupils in Abraham Lincoln high school a deeper appreciation of music that will benefit them throughout their lives. This year is the orchestra,s turn to compete in the National High School Orchestra contest, and much is expected of them because they came out of the national contest held at Madison, Wisconsin, in 1935, with flying colors.

Although the Reservette club is local to Abraham Lincoln High School, it is a part of the national Girl Reserve or- ganization, which, in turn, is a part of the world-wide Young W'omen's Christian Asso- ciation. As their special project, the Reservettes entertain the Creche children at an annual Christmas party and weekly story-telling hours. Another annual custom of the Reservettes is to welcome the new girls to Abraham Lincoln at a tea at the beginning of the spring term.

Everything, from the coaches to a new football field, was included in the new deal sweep. To start things off, Principal G. W. Kirn finished several years' hard work when he saw the completion of one of the most completely equipped high school athletic fields in the Mid West. Mr. Kim has been busy the past years getting grants from the government to finance the building of this field. The climax of it all came on Thanksgiving Day at the dedication of Kirn field. Helen Parmer was crowned Queen of Football on that occasion. The stadium has a seating capacity of 4,500 and the field has a fine, quarter mile track. Showers and locker rooms are located underneath the bleachers. Next in line of change came the coaches, where the whole staff was revamped. Roy F. Lawson, former second team coach, took over the head duties in basketball and football. Fee Chew, former freshmen mentor, retained the duties of head coach in wrestling, and also took the same position in track. Richard Cochran came here from Coin, Iowa, to as- sist in football and basketball. Director of athletics now is Virgil H. Miller, who is also holding the position for the first time this year.

Haraitg Flinnthall Svquail HANGING the style of football that has been played at Abraham Lincoln for the last few years, Coach Lawson gave the school a brighter outlook on the game, by winning four games, losing an equal number, and gaining one tie during the season. Missouri Valley opened on the Kirn field, and each team found the going tough. With both teams doing their battling on the center of the field, the game ended in a scoreless tie. On the next week-end, Tech came over to play a game on the wind-swept field. After pushing over a first-half touchdown, the Lynx became over confident and let the Omaha team garner two touchdowns and a safety to carry a 15 to 6 victory back home with them. Next, A. L. encountered one of the toughest teams in the inter-city in South High. After having everything their own way in the first half, they found it tougher going in the second half, but wound up on the large end of a 20 to 0 score Returning home for their next game, the team won a 7 to 0 victory over a smaller Essex team. Then, on its second trip, A. L. traveled to Sioux City. This trip proved disastrous because East High won the game, 20 to 0. Again entering the inter-city wars on the next week-end, our Hilltop team met Cen- tral. Although Abe Lincoln was beaten 16 to 6, plenty of thrills were experienced. Next came the game that made the season a success. You guessed it, the one with T. JJ With vengeance in their hearts for the seven long years in which A. L. had not been able to gain a victory, the Lynx entered this game. For three quarters it looked as if the result was going to be the same as in previous years, but towards the end of this quar- ter Frank Friar caught a pass for a touchdown, and Herd kicked the extra point. T. also scored, but was unable to convert the extra point, and sweet victory was Abraham Lincoln's. Finishing the season against the Iowa School for the Deaf, the Lynx had little trouble in downing that team 19 to 6. On Thanksgiving Day, the Hilltop team played a post-season game against the pick of the best players in Southwest Iowa. Ar this time Abraham Lincoln's new field was dedicated, and the fact that the All-Stars defeated the Lynx 24 to O could not dim the glory of that occasion. QNinety-onej Although not a regular, Keith Austin could always be depended upon for a good game in the backfield. Playing his first year of varsity football, Clark Bar- ritt gained the reputation of a smashing fullback. Bill Bell, a veteran tackle, finishes a brilliant career on the Hilltop team this year. Playing a flashy game at end, Chet Bowers finishes his school football career this year. A three-year man, Carlysle Briclcey, finished the most outstanding of the three this year as fullback. Speed boy of the Lynx, Jack Cone, diminutive guard, also sees the last of high school football this year. fNinety-twoj Fred Day, although he played only one year of foot- ball for A. L., showed plenty of fight at the center posi- tion. Frank Friar, senior, made a great end out of himself when he caught the pass that won the T. football game. Une of the scrappiest fighters on the team was Johnny Hathaway, Lynx watch charm guard, who graduates. Charles Herd was only one of the several under- classmen who made a great showing for themselves in the baclcfield. Que of the really tough ends on the team was Joe Kmezich, who finishes his career in a blaze of glory. Discovered this year was Milton Jenkins, shifty negro backfield star, who will be back next year. Returning to bolster next year's squad will be "Rip" Mosher, another guard who was always in the thick of the fray. Helping a good deal to make this year's team a win- ner was Paul McKee, big center, who will return. Another of a long list of outstanding guards was Joe Paladino, who will come back for his third year. Captain and one of the most outstanding players on the team was Louie Profeda, tackle and fullback. Utility man on the team was "Monk" Reynolds, who played either backfield or line and will be back. Une of the peppiest mem- bers of the squad was "Russ" Seiffert, senior, who gave a good showing of himself at quarterback. Most feared by opponents was Leon Skelton, the spec- tacular end, who finishes a brilliant athletic career this year. Rising from obscurity to a first-team position was Bob Spellmeyer, the senior quar- terback. 1 Always dependable as a utility lineman was "Pat,' Stevens who also ends his high school football this year. Making a "grand slam" at his first bid for football honors, Ray Tennant was a big part of A. L.'s backfield. Always ready to play either end or backfield George Wiseman, a senior, came in handy in the pinches. Playing the role of manager was Don Harriman, who is commonly known to the squad as "Pest." He was ably assisted by Norman Herd who finished school at mid-semester. lNinety-threej i ll ii iii ii at i i g at la E.

Srrnnh Umm Ilinntlmll NOTHER sport which came under the tutelage of the new coach, Richard Cochran, was second team ifootball. If success means anything, then Coach Cochran has established himself at Abraham Lincoln, because his team this year won 6 games, lost l and tied 1. Under the conditions which Coach Cochran worlced, his success was hard earned. With his best boys being elevated to the first team the coach did exceptionally well with the material at hand. ilirvahman ilinnthall URNING in the poorest record of the season, according to the won and lost column, is the freshman squad. Abraham Lincoln's only two wins were over the Iowa School for the Deaf squad, while Bloomer and Thomas Jefferson each defeated them twice. Much of the Baby Lynx failure to win a game can be laid to their size and laclc of weight. However, Coach Chew had worked together a fairly decent squad by the end of the season.

Third row: Paladino, Severson, Neasham, Kauffman, Norman, Hansen, Koger, Daniels. Svvrnnh Eleum Basketball NOTHER sport which came under the tutelage of the new coach, Mr. Cochran, was the second squad in basketball. Hindered by the fact that capable boys were con- stantly being elevated to the first squad, and other boys were being put down on the sec- ond team, the squad did very well. When all regular season games were over, the second team had an average of a little over the .500 marlc. In the county tournament, which was held at Avoca, the team got off to a smashing start, but suffered defeat in its second game at the hands of Hancock. illrvahman Eazkrthall LTHOUGH having little to work with, Mr. Stout did much with the material at hand in freshman basketball. Making a rather shaky start, the Baby Lynx didn't do so well during the regular season, but made a grand finish on the home stretch. The win and lost column in the city play didn't show any brilliance on the part of the small Hilltoppers. When the team played in the county tournament, the members showed plenty of fight, and should be valuable additions to next year's second team. First row: Fazio, Schaff, Anderson, Dinovo, Zimmerman. Second row: Giles, Sears, Miller, Hays. fNinety-fivej JOHN HATHAWAY FRANK FRIAR BILL BELL Basketball TARTING off with a bang when they won two games at Sioux City, and ending rather abruptly when they lost the final game in the district meet were the beginning and ending of the Lynx basketeers. In the meantime they were a hot and cold club, not knowing from one game to the next whether or not they would be able to play basketball. When they beat both Sioux City teams and then proceeded to lay it on South High, Nebraska state champs, they put out the challenge twice of being the unbeatable ball club. A midseason slump, caused by the flu epidemic, quickly disrupted this idea and A. L. took it on the chin six times. Our most ardent rivals, the T. Yellowjackets, were the first to turn the trick when they beat us in a two-point thriller. When the sectional tournament opened, the Lynx revenged this defeat when they beat their West End rivals in the finals. In the district tournament, Abraham Lincoln esablished itself as a favorite when it routed the classy Sac City outfit 51 to 21. It also went on to win a second game in a victory over Manilla, but Rolfe disappointed a highly enthusiastic A. L. crowd when its team gained a one-point victory over the Lynx in the district finals. This squad, since it was not only fast, but classy, and averaged nearly six feet in height, gave Abraham Lincoln a fine basketball team. A L Opts Game: Played A.L. Opts. Games Played A.L. Opts.

Glrtxrh NE of the sports that gives the Lynx the most of its prestige is track. This year's squad will have a great deal to live up to if it's going to duplicate the feats of last year's team. Last yeai-'s squad got off to an excellent start when it won the Thomas Jef- ferson relays. One record set, was by the two-mile relay team, of which three boys return. Another excellent point-getter was the mile, which was run by Leon Skelton. wrestling NE sport that took a tremendous jump in popularity this year was wrestling. At the first of the season, they looked unbeatable, but defeats by South, Tech and Central wrecked all chances for a championship. Most of the Lynx power was concen- trated in the upper weights where most of our matches were won. In the inter-city wrest- ling tournament, which was held at Abraham Lincoln, Kemplin and Profeda carried off top honors in the 155 and 165 pound weights, respectively, while Kmezich was runner up in the heavyweight position.

CEnlf OLF is another minor sport that takes its place among Abraham Lincoln's sports. Although it did not have as disastrous a season as the tennis team had, the golf team's season last year was not one that would bring any championships to the school. Things seem a great deal brighter to the Lynx ulinlcstersl' this spring because of the return of five members of last year's squad. Mr. Stout was the new coach of the golf team, talcing the place of Mr. Lawson, who was himself too busy to take charge of this team this year. Gfrnnia ACKETS to the right of them, raclcets to the left of them volleyed and served. No, this isn't Tennyson's immortal "Charge of the Light Brigade." It's only the way tennis balls seemed to be coming at last year-'s tennis team, which wasn't able to win one match. Much of Abraham Lincoln's failure in tennis can be laid to its inadequate playing facilities. Things looked much brighter this year with the injection of new blood into a team that last year diclnlt seem to be able to get the: winning spirit. Front row: Simon, Green, Pohl, Krasne.

Athletic ability, leadership, co- operation, interest, and high physical education grades-these are the qualifications she must possess. Delores Jones was chosen Miss A.

Hnlleghall AGERLY she stands posed on the serving line. A hush hangs over the gym. A sud- den blast from the whistle. Slowly her arm swings forward, and the ball glides swift- ly and gracefully over the net. Thus begins a game with Thomas Jefferson which will end in a blaze of noise and excitement. Three big tournaments were held this year- Tnter-school Tournament, Girls' Literary Society Tournament, and Home Room Volley- ball Tournament. Basketball OMENTARILY the forward takes a quick and accurate aim. Up, up, up goes the ball and hesitantly lingers on the rim of the basket. Then down it falls through the basket for a score. This year nine games were played with the Thomas Jefferson girls. Although all three teams were strong and enthusiastic, the eleventh grade team had a slight edge over the other two.

Tensely she holds her breath and pulls the trigger. A shot rings in her ears as a bullet sings through the air. The smoke clears away. Eagerly she looks at the target. It's a bull's eye! Every Wednesday the sound of shots can be heard coming from the rifle range where the boys' rifle team are instructing the members of the largest organization in the school- the Girls' Rifle Corps. The secret ambition of almost every girl is to be chosen an honorary officer by the R.O.T.C. boys and to be formally presented at the Military Ball. Any senior girl who has reached the mark of an expert is eligible to be chosen Honorary Colonel, Honorary Lieutenant Colonel, Honorary Major, or Honorary Major Adjutant. Because of the large number of girls desiring membership, a limit of one hundred members was set. This quota is always filled. Organized in 1922, it is one of the oldest organizations. During the first years of its existence it was under the sponsorship of the Girls' Athletic Association, but now it is an entirely independent organization. By paying S2 dues any girl may become a member.

The sun sinks below the horizon and the spot lights are turned on twelve maidens dressed in pastel shades of net. They form a processional preceding the crowning of the Queen of the May. Next come two duchesses, followed by the maid of honor. A burst of applause and the Queen of May ascends the steps to the velvet-draped throne. . . The Queen is chosen by popular election of the student body, and is selected because she is outstanding in scholarship, leadership, character, citizen- ship, and participation in extra-curricular activities. The four girls particularly honored this year are Eleanor Lutz, Jean Stageman, Donna Lavely, and Marjorie Alberti. From these a May Queen, a maid-of-honor, and two duchesses were chosen, but too late for the yearbook. fOne Hundred Eightj S LIGHT AND VARIED AS MERCURY, THE WIND AND RAIN, DO THE ACTIVITIES OF OUR COMPLETE STUDENT LIFE FORM PATTERNS IN THE DAYS OF OUR FOUR YEARS OF HIGH SCHOOL, WHICH HAVE PASSED WITH THE SWIFTNESS OF THE MESSENGER GOD.
