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- DEMOCRACY. l , l ::Page7 :: l l i i l CONTENTS I, Faculty - - 9 II.

KIRN Principal 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 superficial. -A Citizen of Council Bluffs. J. A. TRUE Superintendent 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. -A Former Member of the Board of Education. 2: Page 10 :: DAISY B.

The Faculty 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 approximately l383. L. WHITF BONDO B. S. Iowa State Teachers. Shorthand, Bookkeeping lusgx. Front row: Fisher, Miss Hanigan.

Senior Class of l939 OFFICERS President - - Vice-President - Secretary - Treasurer - - Sergeant-at-Arms - - - Dick Payne - Roland McGee Helen Fisher Jack Stephens Glen Mathis Sponsors: Miss l-lanigan, Mr. Johnson "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. :: Page 16 :: ROBERT ADKINS- Commercial- Freshman Vol- leyball, Football.

Commencement For the seniors, June is the finale to four years of high school, clubiously yet hope- fully anticipated. The night of June 9 arrives. Anxious par- ents tremble as nervously as the graduates- to-be. 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 perfect. An hour or so, and-it's all over. All over except indelible memories. Page 34 :: l bij? Miss Broadfoot, Gretzer, Crowl, Holmes, Hunter, Mr, Lee.

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! z: Page 35 :: i Juniors Front row: Don Beezley, Adrian Brown, Dorothy Cain, Elinor Bamtord, Eloise Bobbitt, Beverly Anderson, Billie Ann Caywood, Kenneth Arch, Mildred Bennett, Catherine Adams, Helen Bohr, Oda Aders, Sarah Adkins.

We know we aren't very important yet, but our time is com- ing. The rest of you call us troshies, but you can't keep us down. Our first year has been one ot new experiences and discoveries. Now we are beginning to learn what is expected of us. Just wotch for the notable accomplishments we will make in the next three Years. :: Page 42 :: But the inconvenience of this location made 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, and Latin, 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 PAST AND PRESENT more adequate fneans and more thorough equipment were needed to carry out its func- tions, a new hig for. Over a sur high school was capacity was 60C. h school was again called wflower patch, the present constructed in l900, the ln l9l3, it was enlarged to its present size. And all the time grew. The time Council Bluffs grew and came when another high school was neces ary in the west end of the city. At this ti e, in l920, when Thomas Jefferson High chool was completed, the Council Bluffs igh School took the name of Abraham Li coln. improvements selemed to run in a l3-year cycle. Abraham Lincoln High School, hav- ing covered thelsunflowers in l900, and having been en arged in l9l3, Principal Kirn decided tha a gymnasium was neces- sary in l926, an so it was built. And now in l939, we areponsidering the construc- behind the school which tion of a building would be devoted to the mechanical and household arts. ln 1936, Kirn fid letics, and track ld was leveled off for ath- meets and football games are now held over the site of the old high school. lt was G.

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! After ascending the velvet-draped throne, she and her attendants witness a pageant in which every girl in school may partici- pate. Page 46 :: I Front row: Hughes, Wight, Schack, Van Horne, Beezley.

The society is international in character, having more than nineteen hundred chapters distributed throughout the United States, Canada, Alaska, Hawaii, New Zealand, England, and China. Since its organization, April lO, l926, by a 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. Candidates for membership must be at least juniors in high school, must be in the upper third of their class, and must have done outstanding work in some phase of journalism. Our chapter, known as the "Ding" Darling Chapter, is named for the well-known car- toonist of the Des Moines Register staff.

The informal "shots" are meant to help present, in pictorial review, a year of life in high school. In later years, when you're thinking of your high school days,t perhaps you'll pull out this treasured annual of yesteryear, and re- gain through its pages that undaunted spirit you had way back in '39, With this hope in mind, we present the Crimson and Blue. :: Page 49 :: Front row: Felton, Sorensen, Keidf-rling, Schell, Hollingsworth, Greulach, Jensen.

Band OFFICERS Presidents - - Horace Barton, Orville Rasmussen Vice-Presidents - Jeanne Moser, Homer Miller Secretaries George Malony, Ray Pogge Directors - Mr. Seidl, Mr. Nowak 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 do it. 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. :: Page 54 :: Orchestra 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' iestra received many mes- sages of congratulations after the broad- cast for its outstanding work. lt, along with th ior in the Regio band, rated highly super- al Music contest held in Omaha.

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, Joan Haiston, and Doris Haiston offered the competition. :: Page 60 :: MA be -s ' 4 s A A l Q55 lRc-ading left to riglntli l Z 3 4 5 Finalists Competition starts with the literary societies in the speech arts.

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.

Established in Abraham Lincoln High School in l929, under the sponsorship of the Phi Beta Kappa, a national honor fraternity, the organization has remained symbolical of a fine ideal. Only through exemplary character, leadership, service, and superior scholarship is a student eligible to belong to this society. Membership is exclusive inasmuch as only l5 per cent of the graduating class are eligible, and of these, tive per cent are chosen in their junior year. Faculty members, selected by the principal, comprise the committee who confer in secret to select new members. :: Page 66 :: l Junior Red Cross Council I W0 7 4 1 V 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- standing between nations. OFFICERS President - - - - Katherine Kirn Vice-President - Kathleen Hennessy!

This play surpassed many records established in former years. First, it is the only western play ever produced here, and second, it used the largest cast ot any play presented in our school before. The "wild west" idea was cleverly carried out in costumes worn by the Alphas several days previous to the presentation and in unique posters and programs furnished by the drafting department. zz Page 68 :: l Aristotelian Literary Society , I l 40 g Throughout the years of society work in various school activities, debating has played c E Q5 vital part in the development of the members of the Aristo Literary Society. g lf ' Since its founding as one of the first literary groups for boys, the Aristo debate squads M have been inter-society champs three times and runners-up once. Besides the element of competition, much benefit is derived from audience contact, sportsmanship in the face of defeat, and the wealth of material which must be .perused before the facts in a debate are presented.

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- back.

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 next season, Freshman Football 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 whale season. Paige Sri :: BASKETBALL RESUME l938-39 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 prospects. 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. Grover Hansen, stellar Lynx guard, won a guard position on the mythical all south- west Iowa selections and also on the second all inter-city five. Cliff Herd, forward, made third team forward on the southwest selec- tions.

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. Freshman Basketball 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.

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. 1: 1' l Golf 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. age 93 :: l cliff Mod TOYQY Han ann Dan ,Ohh inc : : Page 94 Front row ton tracklz Howe, Knight, B. Capel, Kauff- man.

Track 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.

DURBIN MOORE C'OAN STAGEMAN 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. Front row: Moore, Young, Stageman, Christiansen.

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. Honorable, Mention 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.

With a beginning membership of twelve, its enrollment has now increased to llO. lt was first sponsored by the G.A.A., but is now entirely independent under the sup- ervision of Miss Mary Nix, girls' physical education instructor.

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. :: Page 98 :: Girls' Rifle Corps AWARDS EARN ED Bar 9: Aders, Crabill, Foote, B.

STEPHENS, HANSEN, SCHOLFIELD, HANCOCK, JAHN, BARRITT, OLSEN, SGT. GARVIN. 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 ofthe R.O.T.C. 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- edge. 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 be perfect. 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.

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 cadets? :: Page 104 :: R.0.T.C.-COMPANY C Front row: Swanson, Petersen, Wilcox, Jones, G.

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." :: Pake 105 :: R.0.T.C.--COMPANY E Front row: Brown, B, Christensen, E.

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 ritlemen. 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. :: Page 106 :: NN 5.393 Y .90 bf Your Portrait . . . by WWW I ' The Distinctly Pefrsonal Gift CALENDAR Sept.

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.
