Navigation tonnage reached its peak in 1880, before its elimina- tion in competition with the new railroad system. However, the Missouri River is once again an important carrier of trade, levees and the removal of sandbars facilitate naviga- tion as ,far north as Sioux City, Iowa. Along its banks lie some of the most productive lands 'in the United States. Enor- mous possibilities still exist in the Missouri River as a source of valuable hydroelectric power, besides water tor irrigation. V--ex ... V H ..:.' -fwfr U, ... 1 Serene and beautiful, the Missouri presents another face to its admirers as it curves south from between the bluffs. Rivers, like people, have personalities. "Big Muddy" is a river of many conflicting moods, of whimsical notions, of irresolution and determination, of friendliness and hos- tility. ln the latter mood, it has left its banks to even a score with human bein try to meddle with its wanderings and confine it to a bed that it has no intention to lie in. gs who tb 199' .........

Her life story is a composition of memorable history. A council held with Indians by the Lewis and Clark expedition in 1804 gave birth to her ultimate name. Trading posts, as early as 1823, established the city at this location. Among the first inhabitants were Mormon settlers, who, in 1845, started a village on the bluffs and called it Kanesville. ln 1853, an act passed by the General Assembly of lowa changed the name of this progressive town to Council Bluffs, and, in a short time, the first city govern- ment was formed. Six years later Abraham Lincoln visited Council Bluffs and selected it as the terminus of the Urrion Pacific Railroad. Perhaps Lincoln had hopes then that someday he would be the leader of the country and could help develop this area into a great in- dustrial and railway center. More abundant resources and opportunities are offered today than Lincoln could have foreseen, making this a city of active, progressive people. And Council Bluffs will continue to progress if her past history is any indication of her future. Council Bluffs in Pictures On Page 6: Council Bluffs is proud of its many memorials, such as the "Black Angel" by the famous sculptor, Daniel Chester French, in com- memoration of Anne Dodge, wife of General Grenville M. Dodge. Another historical memorial is the old pioneer log cabin which now serves as a museum for the Pottawattamie County Historical Society . . . Recreation areas help a city's well-being. Fairmount Park in the bluffs offers outstanding picnic facilities, playgrounds, and drives . . , Stately old homes, like those pic- tured, combine with newer ones to make Council Bluffs a fine residence city. 1' v-4 On Page 7: Important to Council Bluffs are her young people and their education. Hoover School is one of several new buildings included in the school system's construction program . . . A city must work to live. Among the big breadwinners are the Union Pacific, symbolized here by its familiar bridge over the Missouri River, and the huge Griffin Car Wheel Company, third largest plant producing railway car wheels in the United States , . . In the panoramic view are seen many of the varied elements that contribute to the success of Council Bluffs: homes, industries, rail- road yards, rich farm lands, and grain elevators. .IM CCUNCIL BLUFFS BATTLES THE RI ER When the history of the Missouri's greatest flood is completed, the Council Bluffs chapter will certainly be one of the most heroic. For, when Council Bluffs citizens saw disaster coming on the April floodtide of the mighty river, they battled with every resource at their command to save their homes, their industries, their town. It was hard work, dirty, grueling, tense and desperate work as thousands of Southwest Iowa people, the army, the engineers, the utility companies, WX ,K M' and the railroads all combined in a superhuman effort to meet the rolling 30.2 crest. No other effort in the history of Council Bluffs was more magnificent. Cour- age and spirit of that caliber could not be denied, and it was not. The town won against the river! With people of such fiber, such courage, and such selfless devotion to a community task, Council Bluffs can look to the future with even greater confidence in her strength, unity, and purpose. Man Against the Missouri.-Broadway merchants as far east as Main Street sandbag their business houses against the menace of the river . . . Linemen prepare to string lights along the dikes to keep levee workers on a twenty-four- hour basis . . . Flashboards, shown here in the building stage, save the city when the crest exceeds levee height . . . The eastward movement, as trucks carry belongings of people from the danger areas . . . Men wait their turn at city hall while the manpower pool makes assignments for levee duty. tml A. L. High School Helps Fight the Flood.-Hundreds of temporarily homeless are housed in the Abraham Lincoln High School gym . . . Disregarding the age rule for levee workers, A. L. boys fill sandbags and join the sandbag line of the round-the-clock fight . . . A. L. volunteers at work on the dikes symbolize all the men and boys who helped keep the city from going under . . . Lynx-men pause for coffee brought by mdbile canteeng then it's back to the battle again. xl- L 5' a . ', Lili' I Q Q .J l 4. -. X 'J lk Q 1 5, M girl X A Vs, A in i lr . Jw W - Q. Am ll .3 fs! A!

L. a better school. Reading counterclockwise: Principal Theron Stuelke interrupts many a busy day to help advise students on everything from private problems to the selection of school subjects . . . ln spite of the variety of demands on her, Miss Lucy Miller finds time to pass along her know-how to student librarians-such as Donna Dingman-who, in turn, give up some of their study periods to help serve the school . . . Mr. Walter Kaltenborn and his student proiectionists, here represented by Ray Dawson, devote much of their own time to make possible the showing of educational films for classes . . . Larry Knotek knows how willingly and often Mrs. Viola Bich'el gives individual assistance to her music students . . . Mr. Nels .lohnson's day is filled with countless little "extras" that are not part of his paid iob but are part of his thoughtfulness in making the school run more smoothly . . . A special commendation should go to hard-working sponsors like Mrs. Agnes White and conscientious students like Harold Miller and Sue Olsen in "seeing through" the numerous projects of the Junior Red Cross. 10 ADMINISTRATIGN Edit 'X xx N X ' .X X - -X A OI'S: K R d SUPERINTENDENT OF SCHOOLS Russel J.

Andrews, Secretary "April, 1952, is a date that A.L. students and faculty members will never forget. Rapidly-melting snows in the Dakotas and near-by northern states sent the Mis- souri River on a rampage. Men and equipment were mobilized, and U. S. Army troops were called to Council Bluffs. It was necessary to use A. L. to house troops, the gym to house evacuees, and Kirn Field to house trailers from evacuated areas. "Many A. L. boys worked 'round the clock' on levees, filling sand bags and doing other important jobs. A. L. girls worked in canteens, supervised the play of evacuee children, and did many other useful tasks. A. L. teachers worked in similar iobs, acted as traffic control officers, area wardens, and did general patrol duty. "We are proud of both students and teachers in their combined effort to help save our city." Theron R. Stuelke Principal 12 Principal Theron R.

He had that infinitely precious trait of not complaining, even though faced with the handicap of illness and the prospect of dreary hours in the hospital. In the sophomore class at Abraham Lincoln High School, he was taking the College Prepara- tory course. Agriculture was his favorite subiect, for nature appealed to Bill. He liked to hike, fish, and hunt. Photography was another of his inter- ests. When a classmate and friend leaves us, he is not forgotten. lt is to the pleasant memories of Bill Sorensen that we, the students and faculty of Abraham Lincoln High School, dedicate this page of the 1953 Crimson and Blue.

Cherished memories of school activities-such as drama, music, athletics, debate, organizations, social events, and academic work-will never leave the class of 1953. Countless honors have made this class an outstanding one in all phases of school life at Abraham Lincoln. Planning for their future education are seniors Shirley Jackson, Jim Stuelke, Beverly Healey, and Jerry Lawson. This consultation with a Parsons College rep- resentative, Mr. Roger Loving, exemplifies many such conferences occurring through- out the year. 24 '-if ROW 2 ROW 3 DONNA J.

Blasts from the trumpets, "oom-pahs" from the tubas, and the shrill of the drum maior's whistle all add to noise and excitement during a typical band rehearsal. Throughout the year, A. L.'s band contributes much to the school. At games, parades, commencement, and numerous other events, band members through personal effort and school pride made this year's organization one of the finest.

The conductor's hands go up, a hush falls over the audience, and one of the concerts by the A. L. Orchestra is about to begin. Soon beautiful music fills the air. Such is the scene at a concert played during the year. Behind that scene are hours of hard work every sixth period when each member studies a great deal about the technique and appreciation of music. What is learned in orchestra is only another of the many ways in which A. L. helps its students to live a more rounded life, now and in the future. 62 THE BAND THE GRCHESTRA 63 AHR- A, ur' .Q-uv r ,Q ,xl ....,l.,., , K 5,0 x K . neg' il in -if -N - - - Seated: Judy Blunk, Loren Spence, Stand- ing: Ronnie Richie, Joan Harrington. f. ,xx Vocal Music Board President . . .

"Everything has turned out for the best. We'll be happy for the rest of our lives." This conclusion is voiced by Gary Jessen, Shirley Sorensen, and Ronnie Richie in "Bastien and Bastienna." 66 Operettas An innovation of the vocal music department, under the direction of Mrs. Viola Bichel, was the presenta- tion of two short operettas February 20-2l instead of one longer production. They were "Down in the Valley" by Kurt Weill, and "Bastien and Bastienna" by Mozart. The cast for "Down in the Valley" included Judy Blunk, Dick Ogren, Quentin Rasmussen, Gary Jessen, Loren Spence, and Eugene Thompson. The cast for the second operetta was headed by Ronnie Richie, Shirley Sorensen, and Gary Jessen. - i- DRAMA- SPEECH 67 'AQ in-,vwfw Section Editors: Shirley Jackson, Janice Phillips, drama Marilyn Faris, speech Xe A Mr. Kimber , Newton Fuller Annabelle Fuller Madge Fuller Steve Eldridge Katie , . .

F 90 Camera Club The Camera Club, consisting of students who are interested in photography, is one of the most unique clubs at A. L. Its most unusual feature is its lack of officers. The biweekly meetings are very informal, and, having no particular program, the members discuss, without the restriction of procedure rules, any subiect of interest. Finances are obtained through the sale of pictures taken by club members. Some of the members are selected to be on the camera staff, which does most of the pictures for the school yearbook.

The only method for perfection such as that demanded by the R.O.T.C. for Federal Inspection is weeks of drilling. A squad is the most important unit in army forma- tions. Since one of the important examinations at a federal inspection is that of squad drill and parading, extensive training is needed. .A K 3, Q "' ' V l v .

Last-minute kinks are worked out by a keyed-up Team in signal drill The night before a game. Highlight of the season is the Trip to Shenan- doah, which is enjoyed by each squad member. Jack Thomsen and Howard Everson smash a hole which Jim Boham slips fhrough for a considerable gain. 0 ROW ln Shannon, Gustafson, J. Smith Restricted pre-season practice because of the polio situation, a green line, and "fumble-itis" combined to plague the Lynx in their first two unsuccessful games, those with Shenandoah and Omaha Tech on September I2 and 19 respec- tively. The Hilltoppers, however, were able to throw off the iinx and hit "pay-dirt" three times against their crosstown rival, Thomas Jefferson. Boham, Cheyne, and Rapalie were stand-outs in this rugged 21-20 victory. The four games with Cathedral, Dowling, Central, and Creighton returned the Lynx to the red-ink side of the ledger, but A. L. fans didn't lack excitement. Great ball-toting by Boham in the Cathedral game, Thomsen in the Dowling game, and Dunlop in the Central game combined to make each encounter a thriller. Stapleton, Messerli, Hodge, and Stuelke shouldered their defensive tasks especially well. Finally hitting the winning column again, the Lynx crew downed Corning, T3-O. A well- balanced offense and defense completely baffled the Red Raiders. In their finale with Benson on November 8, A. L. dominated the first half, thanks to excellent running by Goodman and Gallagher and block- ing by Everson and Sorensen. The picture reversed itself after intermission with the Bunnies storm- ing back to crush any Lynx hopes. The season ended with two wins and seven losses Although Abraham Lincoln footballers failed to match' the l95l eight-one record, a fierce fighting spirit was displayed in each game. l0l y .

What was thought to be a tough season started well for the Lynx as they rolled to an impressive victory over Missouri Valley, 51-24, on November 14. In their second, third, fourth, and fifth contests, they continued the wins, trouncing Villisca 61-32, a tall Glenwood five 56-46, lowa School for the Deaf 67-53, and Cathedral 79-29. ln their first lnter-City contest, A. L. cagers won from South, 42-38, the first meeting in recent history between the two schools. The Lynx then gained revenge over Mapleton, 65-41, and set an lnter-City scoring record against North, 79-49. Thomas Jefferson succumbed to a one-point victory, 46-45, leaving A. L. number-one in Southwest Iowa. Boys Town's undefeated Cowboys fell 42-29 after a Lynx fourth-quarter rally sparked by Ed Hoffman. A highly-rated Benson five was upset 59-55. In meeting a vastly-improved North team, clutch playing 'IDA by Dick Dunlop, Jim Stuelke, and Larry Hays gave the Lynx a victory of 53-46, then at Central, A. L. poured it on in quarter three to win easily from that school, 65-49. The first defeat was suffered at Creighton Prep, 40-39. Roger Berg was outstanding for A. L., holding Prep's leading scorer to only seven points. On the following night, the Lynx upset Tech, 75-64, after a wild contest which kept lnter-City hopes alive. The total sum of 139 broke the lnter-City record for the most points made in a game by both teams. Before a packed gym, A. L. dropped a 58-55 thriller to Manning, stopped by Manning's second-half rally. In a second win over T. J., 59-52, the Lynx played their usual fast-break basketball, but slowed down the last quarter to assure victory. At Tech, the Lynx found that nothing went right and were beaten 67-33 by a blistering-hot Maroon five. iContinued from page 1043 ln a record-breaking evening, the boys from A. L. trounced the South High Packers 83-43. The team total of 83 broke the record of 79 set earlier by A. L. Dick Crowl's 42 points topped the individual-scoring record of 41 set by Benson's Jerry Dutcher in 1938. Disaster struck at Central, 61-40, but a determined A. L. team recovered its know-how in the last regular game of the season against Creighton Prep. The result was a 52-39 victory, giving Abraham Lincoln a tie with Benson for the lnter-City League Championship, and leaving Dick Crowl with an Inter-City season's record of 407 points. The flashing Lynx captured their fourth straight dis- trict crown by achieving their seventh consecutive victory over T. J. Jim Stuelke, Roger Berg, and Ed Hoffman sparked a last-half surge after a close first half. Second Team ...Q ag.

Helping to boost the squad were eight minor-letter winners: Bill Cambron, Don Fauble, Larry Hays, Vernon Hodge, Larry Schneider, Don Shepley, Dean Stapleton, and Dale Wichman.

L. wrestling squad, under Coach Vernon Doty and Assistant Coach Richard Lessenger, came through the season with many surprises. Their season record was 5 wins, 8 losses, and l tie. One of the Lynx major victories was that over Thomas Jefferson, crossstown rival. The win of 23 to TA was the first over the Yellowiackets since 1940. During the District Wrestling Tournament at Carroll, Iowa, A. L. qualified eight contestants for the state tournament and captured the district crown with 38 points. Abraham Lincoln qualifiers consisted of three first- place winners and five second-place winners. District champions were Frank Jerkovich at lO3, Dave Holl- inger at 112, and Ray Messerli at T45 pounds.

Since women have decidedly taken their place along with the men, girls' athletic activities now include practically every- thing in the line of sports. Swimming, tennis, baseball, basketball, hockey, bowling, and others are all taught in Mrs. Mansfield's gym classes. For those not athletically inclined, a course in dancing is offered. All in all, A. L. has for its girls a well-rounded sports program under the excellent guidance of Mrs. Cleola Mansfield. The Girls' Physical Education Department of A.L., under the direction of Mrs. Cleola Mansfield, of- fers a wide variety of sports for the athletically- minded girl of today. In swim class, girls practice a basic stroke in preparation for more difficult ones . . . Field hockey is strenuous and good exercise, but one could never tell by the team's relaxed pose . . . For a quieter game, golf is a good choice. Barbara Frankel, Karen Remde, and Kathleen Grahl are learning the mechanics of a sport played in nearly every community for fun and competition . . .
