Lincoln ' s efficient prin- cipal, secured his A. 1 . from Amherst where he won his distinguished I ' hi Beta Kappa key. This friend of the January, 1934, graduates bids them farewell with : " As you complete your si.v years at Lincoln High our 7i. ' ish for you is that you may carry aicay 7 . ' ith you those fhinys that it has been our desire to (five you: a standard of scholarship that iK ' HI enable you to meet the prob- lems of life, a trainiiu) in service Ilia! 7i. ' ill iimke you a good ineiuher of your community, a type of leadership that (I ' V help you to aid in social advance- ment and an ideal of character that ' a ' ill briny to you a life of true happi- ness and real succes. " The Senior R a i 1 s p 1 i t t c r • | a n ii a r v 1934 SARAH I RI-:ARK I ' OIJ.ARD. Lincoln High girls ' adviser, re- ceived her A. ]{. degree from Maker Ljiiversity, Baldwin C ity, Kansas, and her A. M. from the State University of Kansas at l iwrence, Kansas. ' I ' his unique greeting is her farewell thought for Jfnuiary, 1934, graduates : " ( )nce on a time in the long, long ago. and it ' s just the same now, so I hear, there came angels with gifts for the mothers to choose, and to save for their hahies .so dear. The gifts were many, hut only one gift to a child might he given, and it might never he exchanged for another. Pain it miglit hring, or woe — joy or peace. For a price, a gift. The Mother must choo.se and having chosen lift her hurden and life and toil and dream to make a setting for the gift. " For choice the angels otTered Health with all its heauty ; then great Wealth in store; Majestic power to govern lives of others and control the world ; Wisdom, calm judicious wisdom, grave and great ; and Love, a wonderful flaming love more heautiful it appeared than all the rest. Finally a wraith-like thing tliat lifted its head and hand to heckon. and then to draw away, as if tt) ask and then to shrink from choice. Its angel called it hut a vision — Ideal was its name. " To reach it one must need to pass by Wealth. Power, Fame. Health might never rest on him for whom its choice was made. Great wisdom he might never know. And the voice of glamorous love iie ' d never hear, h ' orever i)ressing onward past these lovely things he must follow far this thing he ' s set to reach. Perhaps not until Death set the seal upon him would he draw near his great Ideal. " I ' or you. and you. the choices have heen made, and yon. in turn, will choose for yet another. This sad old earth has had many boons to give of showy things that seem .so grand. She yearns for youth to call to youth to follow an Ideal until in hands forever reaching out to serve another the wraith-like thing takes shape in Progress, growing .strong and real.

Dyer, I ' irenian The Senior R a i 1 s p 1 i t t e r • January Address of (pernor Glass ' President CJIAKLES KAY PARK SIXTE1 ' :N years ago T()DA Inindmls of Des Moines High school students were ])re])aring to graduate and to eml)ark, amid the unfurhng of flags, and the rolling of drums, ujxni a great journey to combat a crisis of our nation. Each student was alert and eager to set sail, incited hy this great iwtriotic fervor, and encouraged on all sides hy the enthusiasm of their elders. Today we also .slant! ui)on the eve of graduation, ready to .set .sail to meet a crisiii — a crisi.s, far greater and more penetrating in its grasp than this earlier one. We, the graduates of January, 1934. mu.st face this great aftermath (jf the World War. However, today as we prepare to embark there is no unfurling of flags nor rolling of drums to cheer us on; instead there is only the " S () S " cry of distress from hundreds of broken, disillusioned youths who have .set sail before us. .Such is the course which we must sail. We realize that we are attempting a diflicult voyage, one which demands the very highest type of leadership and service. However, we are not discouraged or afraid to attemirt it. Instead, we feel it a .stirring challenge to those of us wlio are privileged to steer our vessels over this .strange, unexplored course — a course fraught with many treacherous shallows of depression and unem])loyment. ] ' ' or years we have been l)uilding and iin])roving our ships of character and knowledge — we have been studying this ever-changing course of life under the tutelage of our admiral, N. H. Weeks, and his crew of assistants. If we have studied well, in prei)aration for this life ' s voyage, we shall be able to steer the ship safely to the shores of success. Hut if we have failed in our jireparation. if our vessels of character and knowledge are not well constructed, they will prove un- seaworthy and we will likely be stranded upon the shoals of di.scouragement and failure. Here in . brahani Lincoln High .school our e. i)erience has been limited only to .sailing vessels u])on ])lea.sure-seeking cruises through calm and well-known seas. .Such trips re(|uire but little skill. However, the voyage of life upon which we sh;dl soon set sail, is beset with many dangers, and sailed upon a strange and unknown course. It re(|uires a captain, who is a capable and fearless leader. To steer a vessel through life ' s ever shifting waters, in these stormv dlays, demands .strong minds, great hearts, true faith, and willing hands. It is a chal- lenging test of our i)re])aration which we are eager to attempt. We are standing at the helm, alertly awaiting the final command, our . dmiral, when we mav each of us ca.st overboard the anchor of high school days and embark ui)on our life ' s voyage. It is our fervent hope that all our ships may prove .seaworthv, and that we may guide them all to a .successful port. 5 January 1934 Graduates the Circus.

Wires, " was with few exceptions, all that could he desired. " The efforts of all individ- uals were directed toward the fAiccess of the team, with the result that the record was prob- ably the best of any previous 1-kmiiki. L. Wires Lincoln High teams. With this Assislmt spirit, athletics at Lincoln High Loach School seem to be very definitely on the upgrade, " Wires com- mented. " There is nothing that tastes so sweet as victory, and we had the pleasure of a few samples this year, " states Lincoln ' s aler t Coach Arden I. McClain. " A task inay be easy or difficult, " he continues, " but if every ounce of energy is expended with the proper motive in mind the task will be ca.sy. If we have several parts whicli are not cooperating with the whole the task will be difficult. " There was more unity and cooperation shown this year in the football team than at any other time I recall since coming to Lincoln. Con,sequently the results were dif- ferent for there was a different thought in mind. If you want a thing enough you ' ll get it, " concluded our able mentor, McClain. . ' kIIKN 1, .NUCl.AI.N Head Coach " Gym is the education of the body, " be- lieves Eunice Cripe, girls ' gym instructor, " Recause a person is one-half mind and one-half body, one hour a week of gym is not enough for gym work, because all other school houra of the week are given over to the educa tion of the mind. Good health is es.sential -to enable one to be competeiu to obtain good grades in their studies, " Miss Cripe further stated. The only way Miss Cripe has of giving the girls of Lincoln High more gym W ' ork is through the Girls .Athletic . ' ssociation. . ny Lincoln High School girl may belong to this club. Eunice M. Cripe Cirlx Physical f.ducalUm Instructor LoRIN H. Gr.aaff Su ' iiiiiiiiiiy Coach ■ Snioiimning l rospects C oach Loriii II. Graaff has been doing great work in developing a .swimming team in Lincohi High school since he came from Roosevelt High in Scjitemher, 1932. Tile Lincoln High swimming team last year had a good season considering that it did not have a team two years before. This year ' s team will snfTer a great loss by losing (;ienn Finiey, (Jiientin Hill, Terrell Salvers, Jack Woods and Jack Gooding. Gooding is out witli the team in spite of a broken collar-bone which he received during football season. There are a giKxlly number out this year but they are mostly from the 9th and 10th grades. However, this will constitute Lincoln ' s future swimming team. The boys are getting good workouts after school three nights a week and Coach GraafF believes the team will pull throtigh in good .shai)e. 17 Coach Lorin H. Graaff, Lincoln ' s swim- ming instructor, gives his views as to the outcome of future Lincoln High athletics staling that although the football team finished its most successful season in Maroon and (iold history, and the out- look of the basketball season is promis- ing, the temporary outlook of the swim- ming team is slim. " Despite the loss of eleven men due to graduation and ineligibility, I will not give up hopes of a good team, " explained Coach Graaff. " Si) )rtmanshii) is devel- oped highly through Lincoln, which means the school is growing and growing fast. Lincoln ' s athletic victories are yet to come. With the husky ninth graders com- ing up, I expect to see Lincoln heading the city in sports, " concluded the coach. OS? (folf Victories The golf aggregation under the supervision of Aaron C. Hutchens, vice principal, turned in a good piece of work la.st spring. For the first time in history, the Railspiitter golf team won .second i)lace in the Iowa State meet held at Woodside, May 20, for a total of 649. The golf team was comjiosed of (kiido Fontanini, Sargio Fon- tanini, Milton Moon and Corwin ' enn. These four akso won the city championship by downing Roosevelt 10 to 11 2. Guido Fontanini, a four-year veteran, will be the only one on the team at present that will be graduated in the January ' 34 class. Coach Hutchens looks ahead for a good year. He expects such stars as Allen Joss. Milton Moon, Corwin Venn, James Watson, and Richard Locke to turn in another good year for Lincoln High. Only one monogram will be awarded this winter, and that goes to Guido Fontanini. A h r a h a m L. i n c o 1 n High School • D e s Moines 933 Cjfootball istory rni I ' ll]-: RICTURN of eij ht lettermen from tlie 1932 squad, the pros])ects of the foothall team of 1933 still looked small until after the first game with Newton when the Railsplitters came from behind for the first time in the history of the team to win 7 to 6. , With new spirit Lincoln journeyed to I ' erry the following week and played unlieatahle fuotl)all to defeat I ' crry 20 to 0. With the score 7 to 0 at the lialf. the i ' !ails])litters went out the second half to hold the lead and ([uickly rolled up two touchdowns in the third ])e- riod and took matters easy the remainder of the contest to find themselves just short of another touchdown wlien the game ended. The third game of the season was played at the Western League liall Park against Winterset. The golden warriors, trying to keej) a perfect record, could not be denied scoring on the third play of the game. When the gtm sounded the close of the first half Lincoln was prevented from making another touchdown having jjossession of the l)all on the visitor ' s one-foot line. Lincoln scored again in the third quarter to win their third straight victory of the sea.son 13 to 0. After playing unbeatable football for three games the Railsplitters hit a slump in their first city game against Roosevelt. Lincoln caught the Roughriders at their peak and lost 22 to 0 before the largest crowd that has followed the team in many seasons. In this game Ray Park, left end, was lost to the squad for the remainder of the season with a shoulder injury. Coach Arden 1. McClain worked hard to get the team out of the daze which followed the Roosevelt defeat to prepare them for their .second city series game with North. Although outplaying North tiiree out of the four quarters the Maroons were defeated 12 to 0. Both of the Polar Bears ' touchdowns came from long runs. Lincoln had possession of the ball twice inside of Nortli ' s five-yard line and once inside the ten-yard line l)ut found the Polar Bears ' goal line stand too tough and failed to score. After two weeks of practice the Maroons entered the East High game without much chance according to .sport writers. Lincoln hit their stride and played mo.st of the first half in East ' s territory. East was unable to penetrate deep into Lincoln ' s territory except for one long run by Brewer for a touchdown. In the first quarter the Maroon and (fold carried the i)igskin to the East Highs ' one-foot line but a penalty .stopi)ed the drive. Lincoln battled on even terms the third and all but three minutes of the fourth quarter. When the Lee Township team .scored two touchdowns in those waning minutes again.st a tired out Maroon team who played the whole game with only a few substitutions. Lincoln was further handicapped by the loss of its other regular end. Jack (jooding, who played a stellar game on the rigiit wing. The Railsplitters were outweighed from 25 to 30 ])ounds to a man, l)ut ])layed East on even terms. Several sport writers said it was the best city series contest played this year. Ten Lincoln lettermen played their last home game on the East iligh field. A battered Railsplitter team journeyed down south to take part in Kno.wille ' s homecoming game. Lincoln took the kickotT and without losing tlie ball scored a touchdown. At half time the Maroon eleven increased their lead to 13 points. Before the second half was fully under way the Maroons led 19 to 0, l)Ut at this ])oint the Lincohi line cracked with Kno.xville runin ' ng over two touchdowns. The final score being 19 to 12. Playing the last game at Valley Junction under the lights, Lincoln ' s line failed to stoj) the suburlian crew which was ])laying their best football of the year, ' i ie RaiLsi litters were deep in Valley ' s territory very few times, once on the four-yard line l)ut the shortness of time forced Lincoln to pass over the goal line. This game closed the most successful season in Maroon and Ciold hi.story and the high scIkm)] football careers of eleven lettermen. Linemen lost include: Jack (looding and Ray Park, ends; Felix ' i ' amasi, Carroll Wright and Robert Allred, tackles; Kenneth Miller, guard ; and Archie Highland, center. Backfield letter- men lost are Sidney Adams and Sam Giannobule, half- backs ; Eloyd Thompson and Robert C ' ar])enter, fullbacks. Lettermen returning next year are Don Davis, end; Robert Scharnweltber, guard; Richard l.ncke, tackle, and Robert Keefer, quarterback. T-incoln placed three seniors on the all-city second team ]iicke l by the Des Moines Regi.ster and Tribune. Those placed were Felix Tamasi, tackle; .Sidney Adams, halfback, and Floyd Thompson, full back. 18 T h c n 1 o r R a 1 1 s p 1 i t t c January 1934 Variety Is jH)und In enior Ambitions I( )( ()OKINfi into tlie souls of the arduous and ambi- , tious seniors, it is found that the business world will claim the major i)art of them.

Donaldson did re- search study for a year, writing; to schools for their plans and opinions on Student Activity Tickets. To keep up these hooks, students are required to l)uv one stamj) for each week at the price of 10c a stamj). They may buy one stamp every week, or they liave the ])rivi]ege of buying all eig hteen stamps at one time, which comes to a total of $1.80, for there are eighteen weeks to each semester. By buying one of tiiese activity books, the students are privileged to attend any games played by Lincoln High by merely ])resenting the book, whereupon they are admitted with- out paving, except in out-of-town games, where they may be charged a small fee. Besides this, the books admit the holder to the senior school play and the track meets, they entitle the holder to the bi-weekly school ])a])er. The Kailsplitter. and they admit the student to all ])enny movies. Prin- cipal ' eeks has estimated the value of activity books about $5.75 per .semester. The money taken in from activity books last year totaled $769.12. After the cost of printing is i)aid, the balance is turned over to the treasurer, (ioldie A.

' ' May We Serve Ton, T leased Teaching salesmanship and merchandising in Abraham Lincoln High .school with sjjccial emphasis placed on training senior high school .students to he better buyers is the task of J. R. , nderson. The first semester in .salesmanship is a general in- formation course o])en to all .students. If students are better acquainted with .salesmanship, making ])urchases for them.selves would not only prove to be much less difficult but more i)rofital)le. The talks that are given every Friday by Des Moines business men have been interesting and inspiring. These speakers discuss their problems as well as personal benefit ex])erienced through the selling of insurance, ad- vertising s])ace, and many other such commodities in business. The merchandising course is given to train senior high school students to better fill retail selling i)ositions. This subject is taught in the second semester. Talks are also given in this course. Many i ractical demonstrations are brought before the class, to acquaint the students with the correct method of handling mer- chandise and the ability to determine what constitutes quality. In order to note the work of different .sales ])eople, various trips are taken. Some members of the class have the privilege of interviewing prominent busi- ness men and women, and later these inii)ils make re- ])orts to the class on their trij)s and interviews. J. K. . ' nderson s])ends his .Saturdays working at ' ounker Brothers department .store in Des Moines in order to bring to his class valuable information.
