ln this busy Presidential year, we pause to honor a President, a
patriot, and a man of great integrity and competence-Abraham
Probably the most remarkable of all the Presidents of the United
States, Lincoln never evaded a duty, yielded a principle, broke a
promise, or violated a trust.
As a patriot, he dedicated himself to the Union and never
faltered. Bigots, fanatics, and enemies raged against him, but he
As a man, he rose above the ugly years of his youth, a person
of supreme patience and compassion, sensitive to all misery, utterly
without vanity, to serve a splendid purpose.
Although Lincoln belongs to all the ages, we students at A.L.
feel the closest kind of bond with him, for every clay we are asso-
ciated with him . . . and we bear his name with pride.

Unless it is Kentucky, his birthplace, or New Salem and Springfield in lllinois, hardly a place
has greater claim to link the immortal Abe with its region than has Council Bluffs.
The lite of Lincoln is associated with many phases of Council Bluffs history. ln August,
1850, Lincoln visited Council Bluffs on a trip to the West. During his stay here, he made
his residence at the Pacific House, located where the john Beno Company now stands. Soon
"the town buzzed with curiosity to see the 'rail-splitter' who had debated the urbane Senator
Douglas." Citizens had their opportunity when Lincoln spoke on the issues of the day at Con-
cert llall tpresent Strand Theater locationj.
Most important, Lincoln climbed atop one of the many clay bluffs overlooking the Misa
souri River and decided that the broad valley b:low would be an ideal site for the eastern and
western railroads to join. This decision had a far-reaching effect on local history, for in ISO3
President Lincoln selected Council Bluffs as the eastern terminus of the Union Pacific, and
Council Bluffs was to become one of the most important "railroad towns" in the Middle West.

Whert Council Bluffs lligh School became Abraham
Lincoln High, the "school on the hill" received more
than a great name. Wfe students received an ideal
for youthful ambitions-all the virtues of Lincoln
to live up to in our everyday life and conduct: the
searching curiosity of self-education, farsighted vision,
kindness for the less fortunate, self-sacrificing leader-
ship, achievement with humility, patient wisdom, and
That the spirit of Lincoln pervades our school is
demonstrated in such tangible things as statuary and
paintings, shown on this page, and in such subtle and
elusive things as a literature student meeting the mind
of Lincoln in the Second Inaugural Address, or a boy
on the football held learning to measure up to the
manliness and leadership of Lincoln.

"lt is very fitting and proper that this year's annual be dedicated to the man for whom our
school is named-Abraham Lincoln.
"On August 15, 1859, Abraham Lincoln declared that Council Bluffs would be the
terminus of a new Pacific railroad. A memorial to Lincoln's visit is located on a high bluff
overlooking the Missouri River and bottom lands, but an even greater memorial to this
unique man is our high school which bears his name.
"Abraham Lincoln once said, 'Let us have faith that right makes might, and in that
faith let us to the end dare to do our duty as we understand it.'
"Lincoln's words are just as true today as they were a hundred years ago, for he
remains a spokesman and a symbol of the highest American ideals. ln a period of unrest
in the world and confusion at home we must all - like Lincoln - have the moral fortitude
to stand at all times for the things we believe are right."

To students of Abraham Lincoln lligh School, the "Crimson and
Blue" means a yearly record of their high school life, not just the
academic part, but the games and dances and the clubs. To edi-
torial stafl members, it means publishing: a book that must be
more interesting than the preceding one and as diflerent from it
as possible. Each piece of student copy and printer's proof must
be checked and double checked for spelling and all usage mistakes.
The Camera Club takes the pictures requested by the stall
with the exception of the large groups, which are done by a pro-
fessional photographer. The business staff has the task of getting
ads, selling the book to students, and all the multitude of details
connected with the commercial side of the annual.
The linal result is a book which staff members and editors
alike hope they may well be proud of.

Abraham Lincoln High Sch0ol's paper, The
Echoes, is a weekly publication produced by sec-
ond-semester journalism students and the jour-
nalism Mechanics class, under the direction of
Mr. ll. Arthur Lee. The Five main staff members
are chosen from journalism 2 classes and all the
remaining students are reporters assigned to vari-
ous phases of school life.
This year found the journalism students and
their adviser faced with a new problem: learning
to print their own paper on a multilith press, pur-
chased with the aid of the student council. Crea-
tion of a new class in the mechanics of the ma-
chine was necessary, giving students an oppor-
tunity to learn how to run the press and enabling
interested students to continue a third semester
in journalism if they wished. The primary pur-
pose of this class was to print The Echoes.
Although printing their own paper was a
new and difficult task for both the students and
their instructor, the department continued to put
out a paper which contained news of school ac-
tivities, national school news, editorials, and the
usual advertisements of Council Bluffs businesses.

As the battalion passes the reviewing stand, the command is "Eyes right!"
ln the early part of May came the big event for the ROTC -federal inspection.
This inspection not only summed up the battalion's efforts on the drill field, but
also provided an opportunity to test the cadets on their yearls class work.
First-year cadets were tested in first aid and on the M-1 rifle, second-year
cadets, on the Browning automatic rifle and marksmanship, third-year cadets,
who were concluding their high school ROTC days, were tested on small unit
tactics and map reading.
Besides this volume of classroom work, many hours of drill were spent on
the drill Held, under regular army instructors, cadet officers, and cadet NCO's.
The combination of all these efforts brought A.L. its fine rating among schools
Abraham Lincoln was fortunate in having instructors with varied back-
grounds and many experiences in the fight for freedom -such men as Captain
D. H. Poss, MfSgt. lrel Reed, MfSgt. Hugh jared, and SFC Edwin Focht.

Mapping strategy for coming battles are Cap-
tain Rod Letner and Coach Vic Jennings.
Aided by ten lettermen, plus the help of a bril-
liant array of juniors and sophomores, Abraham
Lincoln enjoyed in 1951 its most successful foot-
ball season since 1921. The backfield quartet of
Gallagher, Waters, Stucker, and Bendon, sup-
ported by Kiger, Rapalje, and Thomsen, had the
fear and respect of all opponents. This backfield,
together with a powerful line consisting of such
FIRST lf M
standouts as Burdick, Letner, Mordeson, and
McBurney, marched through the season to win
efght out of nine games.
In the opener, Abraham Lincoln rolled past
favored Shenandoah by a score of 13-0. Crum-
bling Mustang defenses with vicious line play
and hard-running backs, the Lynx completely
dominated the game.
The second victim for the relentless hilltop-
pers was lntercity rival Omaha Tech. Once
again the Lynx were the underdogs, but fought
their way to the top side of a 6-O score.
The next gridiron tangle found the scrappy
eleven facing their old enemy, Thomas jefferson.
Carried by the hard running of Stucker and
Waters, they humbled the Yellow jackets to the
tune of a 22-12 tally.
When Abraham Lincoln met their new foe,
Omaha Cathedral, the Class "B" team promptly
showed the Lynx they were not to be slighted.
Wading through the mud, the Omahans ran up
a 12-0 first-quarter lead. But the undefeated
boys from A.L. roared from behind to nip
Cathedral 13-12 and rack up their fourth straight
The following week found Vic Jennings'
boys on the road to meet a mistakenly-under-

sen, Bendon, Dunlop, Sage, Cheyne. llbird Row: Innes, Waters, Crowl, Nimtz.
rated Des Moines Dowling team. After a fierce
struggle, the Lynx, spearheaded by the sharp
passing of Gallagher and the nimble feet of
Waters, forced the Des Moines boys to con-
cede a 6-0 defeat.
Creighton Prep stood next on the list for
the boys in Crimson and Blue. ln an important
lntercity League clash, an inspired Lynx team
scored two touchdowns in the first half, com-
pletely outplaying their opponents. But the tle-
termined Prepsters stormed back into the game
resolved to break the Abraham Lincoln victory
string. The equally-determined Lynx beat off
the intended rally and at the final gun the score
stood Abraham Lincoln, 12, Creighton Prep, 6.
The following week, with a six-game win-
ning streak under their belts, Abe Lynx grid-
men met a highly-favored Omaha Central team,
who completely outplayed and outcharged A.L.
during the first half and blasted their way to a
half-time lead of I2-0. The Lynx revived in the
second half and did all but run Central off the
lield. The rally fell short, however, and the hill-
toppers swallowed the first defeat of their record-
The boys from A.L. bounced back in their
next contest, showing the spirit that Lynx

Abraham Lincoln's basketball team had a fine season, finishing
with a record of fourteen wins and seven losses. The Lynx placed
fourth in the lntercity League and were in a position to move into
first place until the final week of play.
This year's club was another one of A.L.'s typical fast break
outfits. Paced by the front line trio of Dick Dunlop, Dick Hen-
derson, and Ray Waters, A.L.'s offensive rolled up an average of
fifty-five points per game. The guards, -lohn Kates and Dick Crowl,
were known for their demon rebounding as well as flashing, con-
sistent scoring ability.
The Lynx started the season on the right foot, winning their
first three games by overwhelming Mo. Valley -18-40, Treynor
48-36, and Clenwood 51-42.
The Abraham Lincoln five were then stopped by a strong Crin-
nell team, 55-43, but bounced back to trip l.S.D., 60-55.
The next week A.L. opened their intercity season with a
sour note, losing to Creighton Prep, 5I-35. They then traveled to
Mapleton, where they lost to a fast crew by a score of 59-5l.
However, the Hilltoppers then started off their winning streak
by defeating a good Omaha Central crew, 42-36.
Next victim for the Crimson and Blue was their crosstown
rival, T.j., blasted by a score of 60-40.
ln the following game the Lynx edged a star-studded Alumni
five, 69-67, in an overtime period.
An upset came when a strong Boys Town crew fell before the

Despite a losing season, Abraham Lincoln wrestlers had one of their most
promising years. Time after time the squad, ably tutored by Coach Vernon
Doty, was beaten by only small margins.
The Lynx placed third in the district meet, in which Dennis Green, Mickey
Rocha, and Frank ,lerkovich all qualified for the state meet.
Ken Gilman was probably the best wrestler for his weight in the lntercity
league, for he lost only two matches all year. Other consistent winners were
Dennis Green, Frank Vlerkovich, Ray Messerli, and Dave Hollinger,
As only four wrestlers were lost by graduation, next year's prospects for
a winning team look bright.

signs of expertness. Behind the experienced hand of last year's singles champion,
Fd Hoffman, the tennis team rounded into shape. Other returnees from 1951
were ,lim Stuelke and Bud Rounds. Newcomers were Dick Crowl, Gary jessen,
and Richard Lightner.
One of the big events of the football season was the coronation of the Football
Queen. Candidates for this honor were the thirteen girls who had the most season
football tickets sold as votes for them. The Queen, Lynel McKee, was elected
from among these girls by the varsity football squad. l.ynel was crowned by her
escort, Ron Kiger, in a ceremony during the half of the A.l..-Creighton game.

The year's activity of the physical education department started
out in full swing with the combined efforts of the art and music
departments in a three-way production of the "Nutcracker
Suite" at Atlantic, lowa. Under the direction of Mrs. Cleola
Mansfield, the girls in her department worked many hours on
this program given for the Southwest lowa Educational Asso-
ciation. For the performance, Miss Berniece Pohl and her art
classes created the backdrop, a sugar plum tree, and Mrs. Viola
l3ichel's student chorus furnished the musical background.
The picture at the right shows Miss Pohl, Karen Peterson,
Mary Alice MacLafferty, Carolyn Finney, and jim Williarns
making final plans for the presentation.
Every year the physical education department
lends its aid to the production of the operetta.
This year was no exception, for Mrs. Cleola
Mansfield and Mrs. Viola Bichel worked to-
gether many weeks planning the choregraphy
and instructing the girls in their dances for "The
Marriage of Nannettef, These colorful dances
became one of the most appealing parts of the
operetta. Mrs. Mansheld is shown at right di-
recting a dance rehearsal for the production.
The swim pageant climaxed the activity of the physical edu-
cation department this year. Here again, Mrs. Cleola Mans-
lield teamed up with other departments of the school to make
this production possible. Mr. Edwin Reinel's practical me-
chanics class constructed the flutter-boards for the "aqua-
caders," and Miss Berniece Pohl's groups painted and lettered
the boards, which proved a colorful addition to the exhibition.
ln the picture at the right, Ronald Sealock, Roger Sealock,
Wes Feller, and Roger Miller, practical mechanics students,
watch girls in the swim class try out the new flutter-boards.

The Latin Club, open to all Latin students, provides opportunity to develop the lighter side of
this high school subject. The ancient Romans become real through the discussion and observ-
ance of some of their customs. Election to office follows the pattern of the Roman election.
Rome, ancient and modern, is brought closer by seeing moving pictures of this famous city,
and by having people who have visited in Rome share their observations with the students.
This year the club enjoyed a Christmas party at which there was a program and a gift
exchange. The sponsor, Miss Margaret Henderson, entertained the group at her home for the
Latin Club members this year bought a book on Roman life and presented it as a gift
to the school library.

The lli-Y, whose purpose is to create, maintain, and extend throughout the
school and the community high standards of Christian character, is one ot'
A.l..'s most prominent service groups.
This year it continued the service project of helping to fill and deliver the
Cloodfellow Christmas baskets. ln the spring, the lli-Y and Y-Teens joined
together to sponsor the Easter program and also comhined to send representa-
tives to the llifY and Yffeen district conferences.
While the cluh devotes most ol its time to service proiects, the hoys still

The Dramatics Club is an organization that is interesting as well as
informative. Anyone interested in dramatics, whether it is acting in
plays, participating in prose and poetry, or giving speeches, has the
privilege of becoming a member. The meetings consist of individuals
giving one act plays, acting out skits and pantomimes, and having
guest speakers. A meeting is held once every month.
The Thespians, another of the dramatics organizations at
Abraham Lincoln, is made up of students who have earned enough
points through work in plays or on stage crews to qualify for mem-
bership. The Masque and Wig is an inactive honorary group to

The junior class of 1951-52 was truly an active
group with the class play, the election of of-
iicers, the collection of dues, the ordering of

Ahout mid-way of the iirst semester came
the class elections. The juniors started theirs

carried on their duties very well.

The sophomore class was one of the largest that ever attended
A.I.., numbering two hundred and ninety-four students.
There were many boys who participated in sports, such as
football, basketball, wrestling, and track. Playing against other
teams gave them worthwhile experience for future varsity squads.
Music appealed to many sophomore boys and girls. The music
groups were band, orchestra, glee, and chorus. In these, sopho-
mores were able to compete with other students and to take part
in the Music Clinic.
Wlmile sophomore boys took part in ROTC, the girls were
active in the different clubs, such as Y-Teens, Pep Club, language
clubs, and literary societies. Both boys and girls showed their
talent in the plays presented by the societies.
The sophomore year was packed with new adventures-
another step forward to that of being an upper classman.
The freshmen class members have been diligent in their thirst for
knowledge. They have come from one-room rural schools, from the
city schools, and some have even traveled as far as fifteen miles a
day from the nearby towns of Mineola and Crescent in order to
fulfill this goal.
A heated campaign for class officers began the year. Display-
ing posters and giving and hearing stirring campaign speeches
were something new to this group as the freshmen prepared to
cast their votes.
Members of the freshmen class have been helpful around the
school. At the basketball games, Eugene Ranney and Ivan Wright
were willing and reliable ticket-takers. One freshman was a pro-
jectionist, and several boys worked in the cafeteria.
Music attracted the largest number of students, with approxi-
mately forty-six participating. Myrna Mills and Karen Schroeder
traveled to Des Moines for the All-State Orchestra. At the sub-
state solo contest, Carole Starrett, Karen Schroeder, and David
Petersen tried their luck, while others participated in small-group
In sports, Frank ,Ierkovich proved to be an able
wrestler, and was sent to the state contest. Twenty-
two other boys also showed an interest in sports.
I Other activities, such as literary societies, Latin
Club, Y-Teen, Hi-Y, and cheerleading, kept twenty-
eight students busy.
This class has proved that even though it was
the smallest class at A.l.. it was big in ambition
