It is with a sincere feeling of gratitude and
appreciation for her twenty-eight years of service at
Abraham Lincoln High School that the 1955 Crimson
and Blue staff dedicates this annual to Miss E.
To all those who have loved and revered Miss
Taylor through the years, these few words can only
inadequately describe the person she is, or measure
in any way her contribution to education and culture.
Miss Taylor's broad interests recognize no confines,
and because of her innate graciousness and gener-
osity, her knowledge has become the inspiration for
countless lives that came within her sphere of teach-
Many names appear on A.L.'s roster of the
past, but there will always be only one Grace Taylor.
Both the faculty and the student body ioin in the
deep hope that her future will be filled with only
the good things in life as partial payment for what
she has so unselfishly and lovingly done for others.
Like teachers, principals too have paper work. Principal
Theron R. Stuelke attacks a pile of administrative bulletins
before turning them over to the faculty for perusal.
"Before each school year begins, one of my
first jobs is to prepare a complete schedule or
calendar of events at A. L. for administration and
faculty use. Although some of the dates are always
subject to change, I believe that including represent-
ative excerpts from this program in the 1955 annual
will be in keeping with the book's "calendar" theme
and that they will serve many years hence as a
reminder of pleasant memories of a typical year at

Abraham Lincoln High School's art de-
partment, under the direction of Miss Berniece
Pohl, offers a variety of interesting and attrac-
tive courses. One of the newest is lithography, a
process requiring a great deal of skill on the
part of the student.
There are three major steps, according to
Miss Pohl. The first, that of putting a design or'
stone with a lithographic crayon, is novel
enough to appeal instantly to teen-agers. Once
the picture is drawn, it is treated with various

Under Miss Lucy Miller's direction, a staff
of student librarians render a valuable
service to the school by helping in library
duties. When not assisting other students,
the girls slip and shelve returned books.
Busy much of the time checking
out books, student librarians
contribute importantly in making
the school library a desirable
place for study and reading.

lutely necessary in music. Band members,
through participation in both concert per-

work with others and discover the rewards
of combined effort.
individual work for the student, haw-
ever, is not neglected by Director llgenfritz.
When the time comes for solos, stress is
placed on memorization, perseverance, con-
centration, and self-reliance are developed
through hours at individual practice.
Members ofthe Abraham Lincoln band
profit by more than the immediate benefits
of their experience, for their enriching love
of music and their practical knowledge of
getting along with people will be an ad-
vantage all through their lives.

Many subiects at A.L.H.S. involve a considerable
amount of higher learning. Few of them, however,
are accepted with so much enthusiasm as that of be-
ing in the orchestra.
Directed by Miss Elaine Sorensen, this group
is composed of only the better of more than seventy-
tive A.L. instrumentalists. Since the musical selections
are usually of a classical nature, they demand of the
student both skill and dexterity.
The pleasure and knowledge reaped from play-
ing in the Abraham Lincoln orchestra suffice for all
the work put into it, according to the students.
