6 The Crimson and Blu l94l Published by the Senior Class ol: Abraham Lincoln l-ligh School Editor Herbert Jorclal Ass't Editor - Alclis Johnson Bus. Manager Yvonne Weatherill THE "ARSENAL" OF EDUCATION Main Building The first line of defense is the scl1ools." Gymnasium Two iii- -l 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 liberties. Table of Contents Dedication . Administration Faculty . . . Classes , . Activities . Sports . . . R. O.

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. BOARD OF EDUCATION Raymond Smith, E. V.

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. Fourteen 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. .

Efisgfwu 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 adult society. 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.

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 year. The burden at the musical activities has been carried largely by juniors, We could go on and enumerate our accomplishments '1'hmy-two 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.

Membership in this organization is obtained by the journalists who show particular talent in writing up advertisements and clever articles, proficiency in photography or art, or special aptitude and resourcefulness in the detailed work or management of the Forty-two school's two publications, the yeorbook and the newspaper. The chapter in Abraham Lincoln is made up of those who in the future will maintain the moral defense of the country as "en- thusiasts of the pen," os men and women who will influence public opinion through their writings. To them, Quill and Scroll offers recognition and honor, as well as stimulation of further effort towards ad- vancement and improvement. Seated: Condon, McGi'une, Johnson, Jnrdal, l.i-onhardt.

But all is part of a well-organ- ized system, each part ot which is vital to the success ot the Echoes. Few people realize how much time is spent and how much work is done in getting out the Echoes each week. F01-fy-four The amateur journalists are acquainted with the newspaper tradition of doing every- thing in their power to see that their paper gets out on time. Daily, the budding newsmen obtain experi- ence in reporting, copyreading, ad solicit- ing, and other phases ot newspaper publish- ing, always keeping in mind the policy of the paper: "Echoing vigorously, justly, and without prejudice."

The Senior Chorus Rehearses Fifty Making Life Melodious lnstead of the customary Gilbert and Sulli- van operetta, the music groups this year presented the "Emperor's Clothes" by Clo- key. 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 orchestral work. A single phrase aptly describes this oper- etta: "One of the most colorful and suc- cessful musical performances ever pre- sented at Abraham Lincoln." Fifty-one PRACTIVE IN DEMOCRATIC LIVING . . .

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 respective tournaments. The varsity fifteen was then selected. ln early January, these people journeyed to Midland College at Fremont. A. L. entered Fifty-four 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- ing speakers. 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 meetings, which endeavor to bring about this feeling, are arranged to give a better understanding of France to the members of this organization.

With only two years behind them, the Seventy-four members feel thot they know much more about the German people and their country through the varied activities of the club, The initiation is one of the important events of the year. This year it was held in Fairmount Park in real German style with German costumes. Even though it is new, the German Club is an up- ond-coming organization of enthusiastic workers.

Seventy COACHES Chew Lawson Mcllrofh Sfuelke Stout VIRGIL H. MILLER DIRECTOR OF ATHLETICS Virgil H. Miller CHEERLEADERS Profedo Kmezich Millard WARREN VOGT Honorary Captain Pigskin Review 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- end rivals. 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- ference. 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 equally. Eighty-one O'Neill Dean Anderson Plunkett Miller Pigskin Review 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 the seniors. 1- . r j fi - i a I .,,f 4,14 Jliiiiows-HM Harding Eighty-two Diller Leed Lemen Loughran Reggio Pigskin Review ln the season's grid finale, the warriors wearing the Crimson and Blue defeated Thomas Jefferson for the second time of the season.

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.

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- venge tilts. siofy Sulhoff 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 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. Coach Chew, with a manager and ten of his best men, trekked to Cherokee to parti- cipate in the district wrestling tournament. Don Miller, Warren Binkley, Leo Cash, Fred Garrett, Louie Carta, Mark Stageman, Bob Wright, Orville Wright, Dick Leed, Eugene Diller, and Manager Oda Sulley were the boys making the trip. Cash, a ll2-pound junior, was the only team member to place when he capped the championship of his division l-le was eliminated in the first round of the state meet held at Clarion. Robert Wright Honorary Captain Bob Knight, veteran Lynx grappler, was kept from action because of illlness. The team was further weakened when Orval Lee injured a shoulder. For the season, Leo Cash, Dick Leed, Bob and Orville Wright, and Gene Diller looked best for Abraham Lincoln. These boys made good showings against Nebraska State champions in intercity matches.

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- per manner 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 Ninety-two 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.

O. T. C. as a sophomore. Only the boys in this or- ganization know the struggle involved in or- der to achieve an Honor Rating at the an- nual inspection. With the announcement of the beginning of drill in the middle of September some five hundred boys were launched on the way to an Honor Rating the following May. Com- petitive examinations involving all subjects covered in the first two years of their train- ing were given the seniors wanting a promo- tion, Outstanding cadets in these tests were promoted to second lieutenants and al- lowed to lead the "Back to the Rails" parade. Theoretical training held the cadets' atten- tion during the winter months. Lectures were given concerning map reading, muske- try, first aid, combat principles, scouting and patrolling, and the characteristics of infantry weapons. When spring came and close order drill was resumed, interest mounted steadily. The l94l Military Ball was one of the most beautiful of all balls and will be long remembered. Efforts were then concentrated on the in- spection which was scheduled tor May l3. Drill was held five days a week in order to give more time both to close order and ex- tended order training. Companies were given their respective duties for the inspec- tion and these were practiced over and over. May l3 arrived rapidly. The regiment turned out in all its glory--officers with brass and sabers gleaming, and cadets with immaculately clean uniforms .... The end of another year came all too quickly as the l94l regiment followed the i940 into the past.

This was the birth of Robertson Field. For many years the R. O. T. C. has drilled in the street for lack of space. Due to the work of Colonel Robertson and Principal Kirn, the lot across the street has become our drill field. At last we have our own pa- rade grounds.
