THE "ARSENAL" OF EDUCATION
The first line of defense is the scl1ools."
The Nation's Moral Defense
Throughout the nation, the gears of industry are rotating at
full speed. Factories are beginning to turn out defense items
in mass production.
So it is with the high schools of America. Simultaneous with
hurried preparations for national defense, thousands of stu-
dents are preparing for their future as citizens. They have
completed their apprenticeships and are ready to take part
in their nation's moral defense as full-fledged workmen.
These students have passed through their last "bottleneck,"
When this year's commencement exercises have come and
gone, many thousands of young men and women graduates
will shoulder new responsibilities. They will gladly accept
the task of carrying on in the struggle to preserve Amercan

The Essence of Democracy
We students know already that our greatest defense against
the enemies of democracy is the love of liberty and justice
that has been instilled in our minds through the years of
our education. We know that only by keeping our minds
free from prejudice and narrowness can we preserve the es-
sence of democracyg that by opening our hearts and minds
and keeping them clear and liberal, we can help to preserve
for ouselves and our fellow-men that individual freedom which
our forefathers embodied in the Constitution.
Therefore, it is to spiritual defense that we dedicate the
Crimson and Blue of l94l.

ln glancing through the following pages, we
recognize ourselves as the students who
came to Abraham Lincoln three years ago
to- make a name for ourselves, to study
hard, to meet friends, to form ideals, and to
generally build up and shape our lives.
We have utilized the opportunities in school
to attain our ambitions We have engaged
in the activities of the school, both scholas-
tic and social, Our representatives have
gained recognition in all fields of endeavor.
For the past three years the school has been
almost our sole pride and joy. We have
enjoyed working at Abraham Lincoln, learn-
ing to become better Americans. We hope
we have helped make the school just a little
bit better for the coming generations, for
a school is no greater than the spirit and
character of its students and teachers.
lt is with these thoughts in mind that we
approach the finale.

The Chain of Defense
As the last senior reaches the platform, the pageant
which will be the close of his school year begins.
After the addresses and the presentation of the
diplomas, the senior commences his life as a part of
His education is to be to him a spiritual defense
against evil. He has hopes of becoming a great exe-
cutive, or a teacher, or a scientist, but no matter
what he does, he is still a part of the great mass of
the American people who are striving to make this
a happy and prosperous nation.
But his job is not complete at this point, for it is his
privilege to guide the lives of future generations.
lt has come time for him to put his education into
practice and pass his knowledge along, in order that
he may be a strong and sturdy link in the chain of
defense of American people. He has taken his place
in society, he has found his niche in life.

One more step and we are in the front linel
For three years we have trained regularly to
goin skill and knowledge. As underclass-
men, senior rank has been our goal.
Frequently we have taken time out to enjoy
school activities. We attended all the plays
and put on the only mystery play ot the
The burden at the musical activities has
been carried largely by juniors, We could
go on and enumerate our accomplishments
in detail. l-lowever, we did not pretend to
be Tl-lE regiment during the year. We knew
that we must wait until we had passed in-
spection this spring.
Through all the thrills of the junior year we
have made new and deeper friendships, pre-
paring for a happy senior year. We have
been rather light-hearted so tar, but we will
be capable of shouldering the responsibili-
ties handed down to us.
Now we are seniorsl

lsn't it discouraging to be lO-l 's and ll-l's? We would like
to become either tull-fledged sophomores or full-fledged
juniors, As luck will have it, the juniors don't want us and
we don't want the sophomores. What shall we do about it?
The only solution is that next time we will begin our kinder-
garten careers in September. P

You can't be senior class president until you're a senior, you
can't be junior class president until you're a junior, you can't
be sophomore president, because there isn't one. You can't
go out, because you're too young, you can't stay in, because
you're in the way. Nobody loves you except your mother, and
even she will love you more when you're a sophomore.

Activities of the manifold clubs teach mem-
bers the practice of democracy in ordinary
life. ln all organizations are students of dif-
ferent abilities and racial origins, and they
work together in harmony and perfect equal-
ity, creating a society in which understanding,
tolerance, and cooperation are the motivating
principles of group action.

"Scoopl-Scoop! Stop the presses!"
While not always so sensational, the Echoes
has had at least one scoop during the spring
At the time of the class elections, the staff
decided to present the returns in true news-
paper style. Within one and one-half
hours after the ballots were counted, Echoes
containing the final returns were distributed
throughout the classrooms.

By working on the Echoes, journalism stu-
dents are at least exposed to the old adage:
"Once printers' ink gets into your veins,
it can never get out."
The serious side should not be overlooked.
One should not forget that in addition to
the many other liberties which are enjoyed
in America, the freedom of the press is

-HARMONY? The Senior Chorus Rehearses
Making Life Melodious
lnstead of the customary Gilbert and Sulli-
van operetta, the music groups this year
presented the "Emperor's Clothes" by Clo-
This operetta is based on the old fairy tale
in which l-lis Majesty, the Emperor, is
tricked into buying a suit of clothes which,
supposedly, can be seen only by the good
and faithful. The results are very humorous
indeed. The shysters, Flou Flou and Fri-
pon, are apprehended by Jarrotiere, the
banished betrothed of the Princess, thus
winning the favor of the Emperor. ln order
to show his gratitude the Emperor presents
Chausette, his daughter, to Jarrotiere in
marriage and names him as the chancellor
to succeed the aged Archivieux.
The music for the operetta is clever and
colorful and greatly accentuates the mood
of the operetta as a whole. Two dance
groups added much to the presentation.
One of the most outstanding and commen-
dable characteristics of the operetta was
that all costumes, wigs, and properties were
made by the members of the vocal groups.
Special mention must also be given the fine
A single phrase aptly describes this oper-
etta: "One of the most colorful and suc-
cessful musical performances ever pre-
sented at Abraham Lincoln."

Learning to Analyze Problems
One of the first steps in becoming a good
citizen is becoming acquainted with one's
government. The debate squad took a
great stride along this line when discussing
the subject, "Resolved: The Powers of the
Federal Government Should Be lncreased."
The first event in the debate season was
the annual debate banquet, Jack Peregoy
won first place in the after-dinner speak-
ing contest held at that time. Following
this was the intersociety tournament. The
Logos, "the underdogs" of past years, won
the boys' tournament and the Clios defeated
the girls. As is the custom, the women had
the last word when the Clios defeated the
Logos in the final rounds.
After the close of intersociety debate, the
large varsity squad was chosen. These de-
baters participoted in the Missouri Valley
Debate Tournament. l-lere the girls placed
fourth and the boys placed third in their
The varsity fifteen was then selected. ln
early January, these people journeyed to
Midland College at Fremont. A. L. entered
two teams which came out well in spite of
opposition. Merry DeVol and Mary Brugen-
Hemke entered the extempo and after-
dinner speaking contests respectively.
During February, A. L. had the honor of
playing host to the underclassmen for a
discussion program. This tournament gave
juniors and sophomores an opportunity to
debate and also to hear some very outstand-
Concluding a very successful year, the Var-
sity Fifteen journeyed to Perry, Iowa, to
Drake University at Des Moines, and to
lowa City for tournaments, Although the
teams had tough competition, they emerged
with a good percentage,
Winners of the declamatory contest which
was entered by all literary societies were as
follows: Walter Wheeler in the oratori-
cal division, who spoke on "And Sudden
Death", Joyce Bransby in the humorous di-
vision, whose selection was "The First Day
of Kindergarten", and La Verne Page in the
dramatic division, who gave "Buttons".

The play tells the story ot a sedate family, who in one evening
find romance and adventure in their very midst, when a group
ot thieves, looking tor a treasure, disguise themselves as pur-
chasers ot the old tamily home which is up tor sale. Working
in a progressive tempo, the adaption reveals the dreams, ex-
citement, and romance of a restive, bored household.

Hard work but a good time is the policy of the Eros!
l-lard work certainly was carried out when the
dramatic production, "Lavender and Old Lace" was
given with the Philo Society.
Hard work also always must accompany any party,
but when this is combined with an intiation of new
girls, there is bound to be fun included. This was
the case when the Eros "honored" their new girls
last fall at a Christmas Party.
ln the end, though, the Eros feel that all the fun
received more than equals the work put in.

Well, not quite, but almost.
Runner-up for the debate championship this year was
the Logo team. Because this team topped all the
boys' societies, they met the Clios, as champions ot
the girls' societies, in the final rounds.
However, they were very well represented in the
declamatory contest hoving two members competing
in the tinal contest, Bob Alberti ond Norman
Filbert were the participants, and they placed second
and third respectively.
Champions? Maybe not, but you can always depend
on tough competition when a Logo is involved.

often, the program includes guest speakers-business

Originally, the admiration of A. L. French students
for the culture which the French language represents,
was the formation of Le Cerle Francais.
Today, more than ever, there is a need of this
kindredship and sympathy which the French Club
endeavors to supply in a small measure to the great
majority of freedom-loving French people who still
stand for democratic principles and ideals.
The meetings, which endeavor to bring about this
feeling, are arranged to give a better understanding
of France to the members of this organization.
There is no doubt that in a time like this there is need
for such sympathy and fellowship as is being brought
about by the French Club.

a better understanding between the United States and
our Latin American neighbors.
Through the programs which consist of Spanish
songs, games, and book reports, the members have
learned much about the customs, history, and litera-
ture of these countries To add further to the Span-
ish atmosphere, sometimes Mexican or Spanish dishes
are served for refreshments,
Each member works hard, hoping that in his senior

Character and competence are strengthened
through participation in sports activities. The
players learn good, clean habits of thought
and action. Their individual talents are recog-

abilities, the students acquire the confidence
and capability which are necessary to defend
humanity against brute force.

Our l94O football season will be a long
remembered one for its all-around good
team and a good season. The Lynx had
one of their better seasons, winning six
games and losing two.
Opening on Kirn Field on Friday l3, the
Lynx turned back Missouri Valley, 32 to O.
Tom Capel, Bud Plunkett, Art O'Neill, and
Dick Dean crashed past the Big Red bar-
riers for A. L. touchdowns.
At l-larlan the l-lilltoppers blanked the
home team, 26 to O. Plunkett, Capel,
l-lonorary Captain Warren Vogt, and George
Lemen counted touchdowns for the Lynx.
Playing for the first victory over Tee Jay
since l936, the Lincolns toppled the Jeffs
l8 to 7. lt was a nip and tuck battle from
the first whistle to the last. Dick Dean
bucked over the first six points with Bud
Plunkett following suit. The Jeffs drove
over late in the secondquarter to pull up
to l2 to 7. Plunkett heaved a pass to Ed
Williams to end the scoring and pile up
the largest victory margin over the West-
Central Sioux City handed the Lynx their
first defeat 20 to G. Charley Uknes scored
all of the points. This was one of the
toughest teams in the Missouri Valley con-
Omaha Central journeyed across the river
to hand the l-lilltoppers their second loss of
the season. The Lynx practically handed
the Eagles the l2 to O decision.
A. L. jumped back into the win column with
a 6 to O victory over the Shenandoah Mus-
tangs. Dick Dean lugged the pigskin over
the last chalk stripe, but everybody played
O'Neill Dean Anderson Plunkett Miller
The Lynx dropped Logan by 7 to Og charg-
ing 236 yards while holding the Panther's
offense to 57 yards. Art ONeill, playing
with a broken hand, showed the fans two
beautiful 46 yard punts. Bud Plunkett
Speer Sadler Story
carried the mail on the scoring play, then
passed to Tom Capel tor the seventh point.
Logan battled fiercely to revenge the i939
season's 58 to O rout and nearly came out
with a tie.
With Tee Jay reputed to have a
much better ball club than that
which first took the field against the
Lynx, a very close game was ex-
pected. The Jefts had a win over
the strong Creighton Prep eleven
and only needed a victory over Abe
Lincoln tor a good season. Every
boy on the Hilltop team was wanted
to make this last contest with the
Yellowjackets a successful one for

ln the season's grid finale, the warriors
wearing the Crimson and Blue defeated

the season. The game, played on the west
end field, was witnessed by a capacity
crowd although it ended in a snowstorm.

Not showing such a good record as the var-

first eleven, the second teamers finished the
season with four victories ond three losses.
Coach Theron Stuelke's Reserves downed
Benson, Creighton Prep, Glenwood, and
North, while dropping contests to South,
Central, and Thomos Jefferson. This ex-
perience will be preporotory for A. L. teoms
A. L.'s frosh won the intra-city champion-
ship for the second consecutive year. The
Boby Lynx, guided by Coach Fee Chew,
went through the seoson undefeated. ..A
scoreless tie was the only mar on the per-
fect record. Thomas Jefferson, l. S. D.,
and Bloomer could not put forth o team of
the calibre of the l-lilltopper yeorlings.
These boys will bolster the Abrohom Lin-
coln vorsity elevens in the future.

Working with a large squad of rather inex-
perienced ball players throughout the entire
season, Assistant Coach Theron Stuelke de-
veloped a fairly good ball club. This squad
of promising underclassmen with the re-
turning varsity should solve many of Coach
Roy Lawson's problems for a successful
cage quintet next season.
Abraham Lincoln's basketeers opened the
season with promise, and appeared to be
one of the better quintets in this vicinity.
The Lynx downed six opponents in their
first seven starts. The cagers were unable
to maintain this pace and the remaining
games were represented equally in the won
and the lost columns
Most impressive was the first A. L.-T. J.
encounter in which the Lynx displayed their
greatest talent. The intra-city rivals were
severely trounced, 39 to 25. Coach Eddie

Hickey of Creighton said A. L. had the best
high school team in this area because of
their showing then. Other high spots of
the 1940-41 campaign were the win over
Creighton Prep and the machine-like effec-
tiveness used to snuff out Omaha Tech,
42 to 19.
Three teams were victims of the Lynx twice
during the season, Sioux City East, Omaha
Tech, and St. Francis. Missouri Valley, Lo-
gan and Omaha Benson suffered defeats
when they met the Hilltoppers. The Lin-
colns also celebrated victories at the ex-
pense of Sioux City Central, Creighton
Prep and Thomas Jefferson. Of the seven
losses, Tee Jay and Omaha Central each
accounted for two with Sioux City Central,
Creighton Prep, and Creston capping re-
Beraldi Reggio Thomas Strowig Murphy
The Hilltoppers rolled along in the Sectional
Tournament dropping St. Francis, 35 to 27,
and topping Logan, 43 to 32.
Then, meeting Tee Jay for the third time,
the Lynx dropped a close 28-26 decision to
lose a sectional tourney for the first time
in several years.
Coach Roy Lawson lost two mid-season
lettermen, Glen Anderson and Art Reggio,
and four more lettermen because of gradua-
tion: l-lonorary Captain Bud Plunkett, War-
ren Vogt, Dick Dean and Jack Strowig.

The Abe Lynx wrestling team was put

with three wins against nine loses. The
team started off with a bang pinning
Creighton Prep and North in its first two
matches. Then followed successive defeats
at the hands of Tech, Central, Tee Jay,
South, Central, and North. Creighton
Prep was again easy prey for the Lynx
grapplers before succumbing again to Tech,
Tee Jay, and South.

Harold Stout established themselves as a
definite threat in the lntercity race. lm-

school, golf is taking more interest than

ln contrast to last year's season of defeats,
the tennis team is hopeful of making a
better record this spring. Much of Abra-

Girls, Athletic Association
Physical fitness is essential in this day and
age to promote the national 'defense" pro-
gram. Without a strongly built body, one
can not carry on with his work in the pro-
The Girls' Athletic Association is one of the
organizations which provides a program
that helps to develop strong bodies and
sound minds. Besides helping to build up
the bodies, it teaches the importance of
teamwork and cooperation, which are essen-
tial in every field.
This organization sponsors parties and
dances throughout the year. The girls
within the organization participate in such
sports as basketball, volleyball, badmin-
ton, softball, archery, hiking, swimming,
dancing, and also perform stunts. During
the spring and fall of the year many picnics
are arranged by the group.
Candy selling at the basketball games is
all done and under the direction of the
girls in the association. All girls who sell
candy are awarded points which help to get
their letters and other awards.
Points are earned by taking part in various
sports which are played after school. For
every hour of play a member earns four
po'nts. Additional points are given to cap-
tains of various teams and to group leaders.

March ZZ! One of the highest honors attainable by any senior in A L.

Ball when the honor ot heading all the cadets in school is to tall to
some R. O. T. C. officer, and one of the twenty-nine girls selected by

A tense silence falls. The buzz ot conversation ceases. All eyes are
fastened on the closed curtains behind which are the unknown "draf-
