The schools are the bulwark ot liberty and self
government. The future of democracy and of the
common school are inseparable. Let them go tor-
ward together. What the school is today, democ-
racy will be tomorrow.-Joy Elmer Morgan.

It is our hope that this book will r

piest years of our lives, for high sc
signifies unforgettable fun as we

happy experiences we have durin
high school days will never be forg
Sometimes in later life persons r
that they cannot live over again
"carefree days of youth." Through

these joyous days spent at Abrd

It democrocy is worth while, its tenets must not
only be taught, but stressed, in order that the re-
sponsibility of the individual to the democratic woy
of life mov be recognized.-Dr. George M. Wiley.

Without Democracy, our country would
not be the free and progressive natiion it
is today. Without Democracy, we would
not learn the true value of goverrlment
of the people, by the people, and for the
people. Without Democracy in eelluca-
tion, there would not be the indiwlidual
development and the feeling of personal
achievement that now prevail, lln a
period of unsettled ideologies alnong
nations of the world, we believelthat
Democracy is still the best form oflgov-
ernment for us. l
We therefore dedicate our boold and
rededicate our lives to that great in-
stitution of freedom and fair livihg-

G. W. KIRN
Abraham Lincoln High School
No just estimate can be made of Principal Kirn's educational program that
does not take into account his whole educational philosophy. Tl His program
is spread upon a wide canvass, his philosophy of education is highly selec-
tive, his ideology is democratic. He senses the difference between a text
book education and basic culture. Consequently, he strives for a program
that releases the mind of the student to the future without any severance
from the best of the past. The net result is an understanding of the pres-
sent. 1l Principal Kirn is one of the most understanding high school educators
in the Middle West. The imprint of his broad educational pattern is upon
most ofthe graduates of the Abraham Lincoln High School. Their four years
in an atmosphere of democratic ideals, of high ethical standards, of the best
in the fine arts, and of character emphasis, in addition to thorough educa-
tional instruction, send them forth well braced against the false and the
-A Citizen of Council Bluffs.
J. A. TRUE
Council Bluffs Schools
The success of the school system depends largely on the attitude and ability
of the head of the schools. 1l Superintendent True has guided the destiny of
our school system through a trying time without injury to the standards estab-
lished during good times. His attitude in the employment of only the best
instructors and a careful program of instruction has co-ordinated the work
in the schools of the district. Through the several years he has been with
us he has tirelessly endeavored to improve our schools, both as to curriculum
and the physical condition of the plant.

The high school has forty-two full time
teachers and two half-day instructors, one
librarian, three office assistants, one nurse,
and three R.O.T.C. officers. Almost every
teacher has extra-curricular duties in addi-
tion to his regular classes. llThe school's
courses are College Preparatory, Commer-
cial, and General. llA fine improvement
in the physical equipment of the school
would be the erection of a building for fine
and industrial arts to further the guidance
program of the school and to relieve present
crowded conditions. The enrollment now is

"Where do we go from here?" is the ques-
tion of the day. Some of us are gathering
up our courage, and our typing and short-
hand credentials, with an eye on the busi-
ness world. Others are flipping the pages
of college bulletins, frantically searching
for a school to suit their needs and desires.
Then, of course, there are a few of us ex-
ploring the pages of home planning mag-
azines, as well as gazing speculatively into
furniture store windows.
Meanwhile the business world, colleges, and
society are giving us, the l939 crop of grad-
uates, the "once-over." We realize that a
great deal depends upon us in the future
development of the world of which we are
to become a part. A country founded upon
democratic principles, such as ours, finds
its security in the development of the youth
of today and the opportunities offered to
them as the basis of its future national life.
And so we, the "embryo citizens" of tomor-
row, willingly accept the challenge that a
world of confused conditions opens to us.

CITY AUDITORIUM-Where commencement ex-
ercises are held.
For the seniors, June is the finale to four
years of high school, clubiously yet hope-
The night of June 9 arrives. Anxious par-
ents tremble as nervously as the graduates-
At last the procession marches down the
aisle of the auditorium, singing with full
voices, "Once more, dear home-." Girls
in white formals seem to float toward the
stage, carrying bouquets of red roses. Then
come the boys in dark suits, seeming to
rise to manhood in a night. The picture is
An hour or so, and-it's all over. All over
except indelible memories.

One more quarter to go and our game is
over! At the half we were just beginning
to understand what the score was, and now
we are definitely on the right track. Our
goal? A happy, successful senior year!
Our junior year, as we look it over, has been
one of accomplishment and joy. We have
been well represented in every event. The
leads in the annual operetta were ably car-
ried by juniors. Our junior play, "Mystery
at Greenfingers," was a rousing success.
The musical activities for the year have
been represented largely by juniors. Two
of us won first places in the declamatory
contest this year. The success of our bas-
ketball season was encouraged along by the
prowess of certain juniors. We could go
on supplying proofs of our abilities. How-
ever we're not by any means the "big-shots"
yet. We're just beginning!
Circumstances too have been right slick for
us this year. We have enjoyed many fine
assemblies, thanks to Principal Kirn. The
plays couldn't have been more enjoyable,
and the military'baIl was a thrill! Only,
when we are "presidents", we'll have more
tea dances! ln all this fun of our junior
year, we've made new and deeper friend-
ships, preparing for a happy senior year.
We have lightly and gaily sailed through
this year, but now we must prepare to shoul-
der the responsibilities handed down to us.
We are now seniors!

CUR ALMA MATER
When the wave of progress in education
swept westward and reached Council Bluffs
in l868, when our forefathers heard of high
schools being established in 60 other cities,
they decided that the school system should
immediately be brought "up-to-date", so
they added the high school department to
the already existant primary, intermediate,
and grammar departments.
The second story of the old building on
Pierce Street was where the first high
school classes met in September, l868. The
first superintendent, Mr. Allen Armstrong,
and one assistant taught the 34 boys and 28
girls who were enrolled. lAverage attend-
ance was but 42-tut, tut, we do better
nowll This number dwindled down to the
four that were the first graduates of C.B.-
H.S. in l87l . The second graduating class
had yet more graduates-the total number
of 6l And all girls, at that! At that time,
the students tried to avoid studying writing,
arithmetic, algebra, grammar, geometry,
the board of education arrange for the erec-
tion of a new school building at the top of
what is now High School avenue. The Non-
pareil described it as a "magnificient build-
ing"-and it had a capacity of 300. The
building's altitude caused quite a predica-
ment. It is said that many students were
forced to quit-too much high climbing.
Five courses of study were now offered:
Classical, Latin Scientific, German Scientif-
ic, English, and Business. Foundation of a
manual training department was being
started. The business department now
boasted of eight first-class typewriting ma-
chines. The chemical laboratory was lo-
cated in the basement which was dingy and
dungeon-like. Although it may have re-
sembled the abodes of the ancient alchem-
ists, the students found the odoriferous
chemicals and infrequent whiffs of fresh
air not exactly pleasant.
But as the enrollment grew and grew, and

May Fefe F
Under floods of light, while the band plays
clear march melodies, sixteen girls in pastel
shades of organdy form a procession pre-
ceding the entrance of the Queen of May.
The two duchesses are introduced, followed
by the maid of honor. There comes a lull
over the audience as they anxiously await
the entrance of the May Queen!

group of high school supervisors for the pur-
pose of awarding outstanding achievement
in journalistic endeavor, Quill and Scroll has
played an important role in raising the
standard of high school journalism.

The baton rose for the third annual vesper
concert in the gym, presenting to the stu-
dents and adults the band, orchestra, and
glee clubs. The band, prominent in this
event, has a fine record. Entered in the
Regional Music contest held in Omaha last
spring, it rated highly superior.
To the activities of civic organizations the
band is a generous contributor. When
monuments or buildings are to be dedicated
and a snappy march is required to add to
the general effect, the band is elected to
When school spirit needs reviving at a foot-
ball game, due to chilly weather or a slump
in the scoring, the band effects the neces-
sary stimulation by means of a stirring ren-
dition. Later in the school year, when the
sports' spotlight focuses on a new activity,
a track meet or basketball game, the band
is called upon to "turn the trick" with a
peppy march. Light, danceful music lends
color to the May Fete.
Because of the band's many fine offerings
throughout the year, the school has returned
a decision of "highly superior" for it, too,
along with the contest judges.

One of the most representative groups of
the school is the high school orchestra.
Numbered among the many activities it has
participated in are the vesper concerts, the
literary society plays, and the operetta. lt
also supports the seniors as they march "the
last mile" to the strains of the "Pilgrims'
Chorus." For the orchestro's first perform-
ance of the year, it played for the South-
western lowa Teachers' Convention.
Early this spring the orchestra was selected
as the best in this section of the country to
play over the radio on a national hookup.
Playing the opening and closing numbers on
the thirty-minute program under the aus-
pices ofthe National Music Educators' Con-
ference, the orcl'

sages of congratulations after the broad-
cast for its outstanding work.

Due to the topic, "Resolved: That the
United States Should Adopt an Alliance
with Great Britain," this year's debate sea-
son proved to be unusually interesting.
As usual, the debate season was enthus-
iastically begun by the literary society try-
outs and announcement of the society
squads on September 30. A sophomore,
Gerry Ross, came off with top honors in the
after-dinner speaking contest held at the
annual debate banquet. When the Eros
defeated the Philos in the debate finals on
November 22, the inter-society tournament
officially ended and varsity debating came
to the fore with the announcement of the
squad for the i938-39 season.
Early in January, the varsity girls came
through in second place in the girls' divis-
ion of the Missouri Valley League debates,
while the varsity squad tied for first place
at the southwestern Iowa division of the
Iowa High School Forensic League held in
Abraham Lincoln on February I7 and IS.
The month of March ended the debate
season for this year with participation in
the McCahilI tournament and state finals.
Again the school was represented in the
extemporaneous speaking division of the
Iowa High School Forensic League at Iowa
City by Dick Payne, who won the school
contest and second in the district.
With the stirring original oration, "Lest We
Forget," Faye Graves received first place
in this district and was the representative
of Abraham Lincoln and southwestern Iowa
in the State contest.
On the night of January l9, the auditorium
was the scene of the 25th annual declama-
tory contest, in which the winners were
awarded medals by the City National Bank.
Heading the oratory division was George
Pogge with a speech entitled "Ropes"
Other speakers were Jean Jacobsen, Don-
old Gossard, and Donald Jones. Royalyn
Hildebrand's deliverance of "The Fool" ac-
corded her the decision in the dramatic
division, with Faye Graves, Robert Keahey,
and Joan Stageman also participating. Mar-
ian Van Druff merited the humorous section
award through her interpretation of "Just
One Big Happy Family." Barbara Hughes,

PRIDE AND PREJUDICE - - - - - Senior Play
Beautiful costumes and elaborate sets, toisay nothing of the clever
dialogue made the senior play unusually cittractive. fl The play con-
centrates on Mrs. Bennett's determination to get her daughters mar-
ried. Jane and Lydia with their loves are quite content, but no Eliza-
beth! She actually refuses to marry Mr., Collins whom she openly
deplores, and Mr. Darcy whom she secretly adores. The plot con-
cerns the duel between Elizabeth and herl pride, and Darcy and his
prejudice. Each gives in before the evening is over, and pride and
prejudice meet halfway.

As a gesture toward world peace, the Junior Red Cross council assembles portfolios each
year, explaining some phase ot our national lite. Among the countries with which ex- B I
changes have been made are France, ltaly, Argentina, Sweden, Czechoslovakia, Greece, QM A
India, and Japan.
The portfolios of l939 are centered around the American railroads. They depict the
romance of the railroads from their beginnings until the present day. This story is told
by charts, maps, pictures, block prints, and stories, all of which were contributed by
various departments of the school.
Through this exchange of portfolios the Junior Red Cross hopes to promote better under-

This play surpassed many records established in former years. First, it is the only western

Since its founding as one of the first literary groups for boys, the Aristo debate squads M

In l9Zl, one year after its founding, the Cliosophion Literary Society planned its first
mothers' tea. lt was such a success that a similar affair has been given annually since.
The purpose of these teas is twofold: The girls, who have complete charge of all
arrangements, are given excellent training in the social graces and the guests may
observe first-hand the functionings of the girls' literary societies.
The Mothers' Valentine tea is one of the outstanding social events of the school year

Winners! For the first time since l932 the Eros emerged victorious from the girls'
inter-society tournament to battle against the winning boys' society in the finals. The
Philos were the opposition.
S . The scene of the battle was the auditorium on the evening of November 22, l938. The
banners of the two societies formed a background on the stage just behind the debaters.
Z Much of the old-time enthusiasm prevailed as a large audience was present to hear the
' . A debates. Both the affirmative and negative teams of the Eros won the decisions.

almost equally as great,
At the close ot the intersociety competition, the debaters from all of the societies met
and chose the society which had shown the best sportsmanship throughout the entire
tournament. After considering the attitude of the debaters toward their colleagues, the
opposition, and the decisions rendered by the judges, the sportsmanship gavel was
awarded to the Logos.

The battle was held in the auditorium onthe cold, wintry evening at November 22, l93S. Z
The wind was blowing fiercely and the temperature was well below zero, but once the

FOOTBALL RESUME I938
A season record not too formidable, but a
campaign full of thrills and many breath-
less moments briefly sums up the l938
football season. The Abraham Lincoln
gridders played a nine-game schedule, win-
ning three and losing six contests.
Missouri Valley invaded the Lynx camp on
the night of September 23 for the opening
tilt of the season, but were sent home on
the short end of a 6-O score. Jack Bigley
counted the A. L. touchdown on a pass
from Albert Gallo.
The Lynx continued from where they left
off the preceding week and emerged with
an encouraging 7-6 victory over the highly
touted Maroons from Omaha Tech. LaVerne
Jenks tallied all seven points on a pass and
a conversion plunge. Abraham Lincoln's
hopes for a successful season experienced
a severe jolt when Jack Bigley, outstanding
Lynx end, suffered a fractured ankle in the
third period of this game.
Sioux City Central's powerful eleven put a
stop to the Hilltoppers winning ways by
casting a dark 20-O shadow on their prev-
iously unblemished record.
Taking to the road, the gridders found the
going a bit tougher than on the home field
and took a 40-O trouncing from the Black
Raiders of East Sioux City.
Returning to Kirn Field the next week, the
Lynx succumbed to a second half Shenan-
doah rally and fell l3-6. Clark Barritt
plunged over for the Lynx lone score.
Tackling their second inter-city foe of the
season, the Hilltoppers bumped up against
a stubborn outfit from Omaha Central and
dropped an exciting thrill-packed encounter
l3-l2. Cliff Herd snagged two of Gallo's
passes for a pair of touchdowns, but a
single extra point made the difference.
On Armistice Day, the Lynx outplayed a
classy Logan aggregation in every phase of
the game excep, the scoring end, and the
Panthers walkedloff with a l2-O win. The
Lynx hit the win column again, however, the
following week, lslipping past a highly im-
proved Iowa School for the Deaf, 6-O, on
a second half plunge by Clark Barritt.
Closing the season on Thanksgiving Day,
the Lynx and the Yellowjackets of Thom-
as Jefferson batllled on even terms the en-
tire first half. A blocked Lynx kick early
in the third peribd on their own ten yard
line gave the Jeffs their initial scoring op-
portunty which they made along with two
other scores, Cliff Herd scored on a pass
and LaVerne Jenks converted to give the
Lynx their only tallies in the final l9-7 set-

Second Team Football
Presenting a more tavorable record than
their superiors, the varsity, Coach Richard
Cochran's second team footballers won six
and lost tour tilts. The Reserves succeded
in downing Benson, North, Central, Creigh-
ton Prep., and Glenwood, while losing to
South, Tech, Tee Jay, and Logan. Although
slow in getting started the Seconds came
through with tlying colors to down their last
tour opponents on the schedule. These boys
will be elevated to bolster the varisty eleven
Coach Fee Chew's Baby Lynx tailed to reg-
ister in the win column last tall, but they
were well represented in the lost column
with six defeats. The Frosh dropped two
games each to Bloomer, Tee Jay, and l.S.D.
Although losing all six encounters, the
Freshman should prove worthy material in
the tuture with a little more training. The
Baby Lynx poor showing can probably be
credited to the injury jinx, which quite per-
sistently tollowed the squad throughout the

Abraham Lincoln's basketballers opened
the season with promise and appeared to be
one of the outstanding quintets of the state,
but a mid-year slump, partially due to the
loss of three mid-season lettermen, includ-
ing Gallo, Rinehart, and Jessen, ended these
The Lynxmen were credited with wins
over the Iowa State Champions from Crest-
on, lowa, and two victories over Thomas
Jefferson, west end rivals, one being the
Sectional Tourney finals. After moving
along smoothly through the Sectional Meet
and their first round game with Glenwood
in the District, the Lynx were stunned
abruptly by Lenox in the semi-finals 45-44.
ln city and inter-city play the Lynx fared
very well, winning two games from St. Fran-
cis and taking two out of three from Tee
Jay. In inter-city league play, Lawson's
forces ended in second place with four wins
and two losses.

Second Team Basketball
Under the tutelage of Assistant Coach
Richard Cochran, the reserve basketballers
turned in a successful season in inter-city
and county play. The Reserves were taken
out of the running in the County Tourna-
men by Treynor in the semi-finals after
downing Carson in the opening round. The
Seconds carried a large squad of some
thirty odd players throughout the entire
season. This squad of promising under-
classmen will help greatly to form next
Year's varsity tive.
Working with new, inexperienced players,
freshmen tutor, Harold Stout, found the
going tough at times but the yearlings man-
aged to win theirshare of games. Although
slow in getting organized, the frosh began
clicking toward the end of the regular sea-
son and they entered the Southwest lowa
Tournament withia presentable five. Their
improvement was clearly displayed in their
first tourney game as they downed Hast-
ings, Zl -20, but were defeated by Thomas
Jefferson in the second round.

Wrestling Resume I 93 8-39
Slow in getting started, Coach Fee Chew's
wrestlers wound up a fairly successful sea-
son by finishing second to Cherokee in the
district meet, and qualified four men in the
state tournament at Fort Dodge. Those com-
peting in the state were: Don Beezley, 85
pound district champion, Grant l-lunter, 95
pounder, Frank Dinovo, l45, and Earl
Reelfs, l55. The latter three were second
place winners in the district. Beezley and
Reelfs won first round matches in the state,
but both lost in the semi-finals. In inter-
city competition the Lynx finished sixth,
with two wins and four losses.
Although only a minor sport in the athletic
curriculum, golf has grown rapidly in pop-
ularity during thel last few years onthe hill-
top. Coach Harold Stout's golfers enjoyed
a comparatively sluccessful season last year
and should come lthrough with an even bet-
ter record this spring with a large squad of
hopefuls to pick from. Competition is be-
coming stronger each year because of the
increasing number of turnouts each year.
Unlike other sports, teamwork is not as im-
portant as indixlidual ability. And yet
again, every shot Counts for the team.

Since the completion of the new cinder
track on Kim field in l937, track has
rapidly gained in popularity as a top
ranking sport on the Hilltop.
At the time of this publication the track
season is just opening and the prospects
for the year are promising, although
there are but three lettermen returning to
form the nucleus of this year's squad.
They are Grover Hansen in the 440 and
mile relay, Dave Jenkins, lOO, 220, and
half-mile relay team, and Clifford Herd
in the pole vault.
The Abe Lynx thinclads of last year
emerged with a very successful season
winning the Tri-State meet at Tarkio,
Missouri, the Red Oak meet, and the Dis-
trict meet, qualifying nine men for the
Iowa State meet at Ames.

Girls' Athletic Association
The Girls' Athletic Association is an active
organization which has been in existence
for twelve years. Its members are girls in-
terested in athletics. The organization
trains them both physically and mentally,
developing a keen sense of competition and
a fine body.
The G. A. A. sponsors parties and the tea
dances throughout the year. Their time is
devoted to a variety of activities, including
intersociety tournaments and city competi-
tions with Thomas Jefferson and Bloomer.
Each semester, lOO points are required to
retain membership in this association. The
desire for achievement, and the efforts put
forth by the girls are rewarded by letters
ond pins. The girls present a fine picture
of health and intelligence as an example to
the other students of the school.

Miss Abraham Lincoln
The honor of being chosen as Miss Abra-
ham Lincoln goes to the most outstanding
girl athlete of the senior class. This year
Dorothy Durbin received the honor.
Basketball, volleyball, and retereeing games
are her chief athletic assets, while sports-
manship, leadership, and general excellence
in athletics add to her already fine record.
Although not eligible to be Miss Abraham
Lincoln because she is a i3-l, Barbara
Moore received honorable mention for her
top-notch athletic ability. When she was
only a sophomore, a stlate pin was awarded
her for IOOO points. This last year rounded
out a splendid school dareer in girls' sports.

The Girls' Rifle Corps, since its origin in
1922, has been one of the most popular
and progressive organizations in the school.
With a beginning membership of twelve,
its enrollment has now increased to llO.

is now entirely independent under the sup-
ervision of Miss Mary Nix, girls' physical
When a girl has reached the rank of a first

Secretary-Treasurer: LUCI LLE F0 OTE
orary officer in the Military Ball. A girl
may be eligible to be a company sponsor
or a band sponsor when she has earned her
fourth bar. The girls are elected by the
popular vote of the R.O.T.C.
The initial dues are two dollars a year. That
the meeting day of the corps is the most
eagerly anticipated day in the week is
proved again each Wednesday by the rush
to the range, the pell-mell haste in changing
from school clothes to coveralls, and the
grabbing of guns.

R. O. T. C.
The year has passed, and the i939 regi-
ment marches into history. The Abraham
Lincoln unit ends a year of useful and un-
failing activity. The military ball and the
federal inspection linger in the mind of the
student body as two of the outstanding
events of the year. lf one is familiar with
our work, he realizes the everlasting strug-
gle to gain the ultimate goal of the R.O.T.C.
Drill began early in September with an en-
rollment of about 525, the largest in the
history of the R.O.T.C. at Abraham Lin-
coln. Companies were organized and sen-
ior "hopefuls" took tests which covered
much of the theoretical and practical work
that is stressed in this military organization.
Those cadets who came through were pro-
moted to the rank of second lieutenant. ln
our first parade, although not yet organized
completely, the regiment showed the ear-
marks of being a crack unit.
Hope for an honor award in the annual
federal inspection ran high among the
cadets. To help make this hope a reality
the Cadet Officers' Club was reorganized.
This club, although comparatively new, is
becoming the strong voice of the policies
During the winter we applied most of our
efforts toward the theoretical branch of mil-
itary science. ln this period of physical in-
activity it seemed hard to keep up the in-
terest, but we all realized the value of this
work in the approaching inspection. More
tests were given to cadets wishing to become
officers or non-commissioned officers. Each
boy began to look with longing eyes toward
the coveted rank of colonel, and each dug
deeper into the sources of military knowl-
Enthusiasm grew steadily as spring drew
nearer and we all began to look forward
to the day when we could again resume
close-order drill. The day of March 25
was announced as the date for our annual
Military Ball. Rumors concerning the iden-
tity of the new commanding officers floated
about our ears, and suspense ran high. Fin-
ally the day arrived. The Military Ball of
i939 will lang be remembered as one ofthe
gayest and most colorful balls ever pre-
sented at our high school. The officers and
their ladies were presented, while an au-
dience af military notables, teachers, stu-
dents, and parents looked on with deep in-
terest. The Military Ball was a splendid
display of military life at Abraham Lincoln.
After the excitement of the Military Ball,
we concentrated our efforts upon gaining
that honor rating at the inspection which
was drawing very close. Companies were
assigned to their respective duties for the
inspection and we practiced regimental re-
:: Page 102 ::
view many times so that the parade would
The day of May l8 was named as the day
for the federal inspection, and it came as
quickly as March 25 had come. The A.L.
Regiment turned out in full strength with
brass and rifles gleaming to participate in
the most important parade of the year. The
ceremony was over in a short time and the
i939 inspection was completed. We had
done our best, and all we could do was hope
for that honor rating.
The parade on Memorial Day completed the
activity of the R.O.T.C. for another year,
and as the last tootstep died away, the 1939
regiment became history.

A Backward Glance
You know how they look now, but what
were they like then? The early cadets had
no attractive uniforms-just drab gray,
Civil War replicas. Target practice and
sham battles formed the main routine. Be-
ginning in l892 from "scratch," the or-
ganization has progressed steadily to be-
come the largest activity of the school.
Prompted by the Spanish-American War,
fifty members and ex-members of the corps
enlisted among the volunteers and went to
the Philippine Islands in l898. Later, sev-
eral Abraham Lincoln battalions and one
from Thomas Jefferson battled an unseen
foe at Dodge Park, drove the enemy out,
and seized the bridge. Other like scrim-
mages and spring maneuvers were carried
on in Fairmount Park, using the hills as
fortification. So thinking back, would you
prefer to have been one of those first
cadets, or one of today's thoroughly rou-
tined and trained regimental officers or

The Crack Squad
What does that red and blue shoulder cord
mean? This question concerning the in-
signia of the regimental crack squad is
asked over and over. When a boy wears
this decoration, he is known as a member
of the R.O.T.C. drill squad which ranks
highest in military precision and close-order
drill. The cadets all strive to bring this
honor to their own squad.
Every Thursday evening after school one
may see the various competing squads in
the drill lot. Every company is represented
by its best unit t eight men. At the in-
dicated time, e ch corporal marches his
squad about the rill ground, executing the
various movemen s. The best group chosen
is the crack squa .
The "crack squ d" competition has done
much to keep up he interest in the military
organization and o arouse a feeling of com-
petition which islinvaluable in maintaining
the morale of "o r boys."

"Quality as well as quantity" is the phrase
that aptly describes the l939 Rifle Team.
This vear's group was the largest ever as-
sembled in Abraham Lincoln. Competition
for places on the team was stiff, because of
the large number of "hopefuls" Each
R.O.T.C. cadet was allowed to try out by
tiring on the range. Finally chosen, the
group consisted ot about twenty of the better
The team took part in several inter-scholas-
tic matches, as well as the Seventh Corps
Area competition. Although they were not
always the victors, the boys kept up their
spirit and tried hard throughout the target
season. Several in the rifle group will be
lost through graduation, but the bulk of the
team will be back next year.

GIRLS' BRAINSTORM IN PHYSICS
This talk of curent in a bore
ls often very boring,
And study of induction coils
Has never raised my scoring.
These volts and amperes get my goat,
Magnetos don't attract me,
The E. M. F.'s in sixty coils
Affects my mind abstractly.
All generators make me sick,
Oh, why were they invented?
A current does a lot of work,
But leaves my skull undented.

An armature gives me a pain,
And commutators turning
Don't make impressions on my brain,
And don't increase my learning.
These physics terms have pestered me
Since back at the beginning,
And when l ponder over them,
They set my poor head spinning.
l study hard both day and night,
And try to gain some knowledge,
But if I stay as dumb as this,
I'lI never get to college.
