CLASS SONG CTur1e of Mexically Rosel Dear old Lincoln High We're leaving, Leaving you our valued memories. We are on our own from now on, And We know you hope We all succeed Graduation time brings heart aches, Tho' it brings us glory too, But We Won't forget our dear olol school-mates, So We say Good-Bye to you. -Bernice Burgess 2 ABRAHAM LINCOLN HIGH SCHOOL ' DES MOINES, IOWA F14-5-e 3 To Ianuary '38 graduates: A new year, a new experience in living. There is no escape from the fact that an in- dividual receives from life what he puts into it. Therefore, I wish for you a long and happy life. t "" . . 1::-: iil ' 'iiz I I N -'1 ":r f Ii i I v::: ,. Q .93 I , y .

Clarke Hiram Dyer Ioseph Mazza Harry Cole Henry Parker Ioe Ruiz GERALD MILLER . . . President of the Ianuary '33 graduating class is one of the most accomplished students ot his class. Gerald is invariably called "Inky" by his classmates and friends. Miller entered Lincoln High six years ago from Maple Grove elementary school. Gerald became outstanding in senior high as a member ot student council and this semester was elected vice president of that organization. "Inky" has a valiant spirit which reigns supreme in everything with which he is con- , nected. Because oi this he has served well as president of this class. Miller is interested in redheads, perhaps, this is because of that certain l2b girl with whom he is generally seen here at A.L,H.S.l I-IELEN HULL BOB CAMP . . . Vice president ot the Ianuary l938 graduating class, is known as "Limpy" to all of his fellow classmates. Bob has always been outstanding in sports and an ener- getic athlete in football, basketball and track, receiving monograms in each. Camp's greatest achievements in the field oi sports came in brilliant playing on the football and basketball team dur- ing his senior year and being a star trackster during the spring of '37, Secretary ot the Ianuary 1938 senior class is one of the most amiable girls in her class, due to her bright smile and friendly attitude toward everyone with whom she comes in , contact, and has won innumerable friends. Helen's nickname "Minnie" comes from some unknown origin and obviously not fromfi her name, t X ' "Minnie" will undoubtedly climb the high- 4' est steeps possible in life and do all that is in her power for the public's benefit, RCY SANDIN . . . Treasurer ot the Ianuary l938 senior class is often called "Professor" due to his intelligence which fespecially in journalisml surmounts the most weird problems which arise. Roy has been an outstanding scholar throughout his high school career and his future is unquestionably a bright one, In journalism, Sandin has fulfilled the positions of advertis- ing manager on the regular Railsplitter and circulation man- ager ot the Ianuary '38 senior Railsplitter most satisfactorily.

V T-T?' 1 -9-E+: SENIOR RAILSPLITTER ' IANUARY, 1938 l7 l937 BLOCKERS - TACKLERS - PUNTERS THE season was rather successful by the fact that the Lynx won a title-share in the South Central con- ference title. half. Anderson and Stevens played best for Lincoln while McGill led Roosevelt to victory. Playing on a muddy field the Lynx were defeated by North 20 to U. Lincoln was out-weighed and out- played by the Polar Bears who had one of the best teams in their school history. The Railsplitters opened their season against Ames at East high stadium and lost to the powerful Ames eleven 37 to U. Ames was led to victory by George Underwood, fleet back, while Anderson and Rittel played well for Lincoln. Ames went on to finish their season unbeaten. Dick Rittel, Lincoln Captain, was injured in this game and was out of the lineup for four weeks. With a weeks rest under their belt the Lynx made their South Central conference debut against Pella at the East high field and won l8 to O. Slye, Andere son, and Sterling led the Railsplitter attack while Menning played best for Pella. Opening their city series schedule against a heavy Roosevelt team, Lincoln lost 33 to U. Holding Roose- velt scoreless most of the first half, the Lynx faltered under the onslaught of the Roughriders in the last Forward Wall Growing Stronger Traveling to Winterset for their second conference game, Winterset was held to a scoreless tie by the Railsplitters. Lincoln had the ball on their oppon- ents' two yard line with only two minutes of the game remaining, only to fumble on an off tackle smash and lose their scoring chance. Playing at lndianola on Armistice day before a large homecoming crowd the Lynx played spirited ball to gain a 6 to 6 tie. Rittel and Anderson in the backfield and Sterling and Stevens in the line starred for Lincoln while E. Zieke played best for lndianola. This tie game gave Lincoln a tie for the conference title with lndianola. Look forward to '38 season . . .

SING A SONG OE SEWING MACHINES UNBOLL the map of Lincoln High, close your eyes, jab it with a pin and the chances are ten to one you will strike one of the busiest spots in the building- the Home Economics laboratory in 135. In short every inch of that laboratory is part of a historic battleground. Days may come and days may go, but their machines go on foreverg at least from early September they portray a season of violent pleasures and surprising experiments for the re- mainder of the school year. Tea towels and aprons must be made for our lunch room ladies, junior and senior assemblies must be costumed, operas and operettas hold an im- portant place, parties are made gay with colorful costumes and yet, sad but true, a dress for one- self, a child's problem a n d an occasional Christmas project is to be worked outg perhaps doll clothes to delight some little girl's heart, to say nothing of the mending of some trousers, dresses, coats and hose, a button here and there, a Senior International Day of re- nowned standing and a .set of davenport covers to make our stage more at- tractive. Not much, yet it all enters into the every- day life of a Home Economist. But something should be said for that charming group of girls We see working long after 3:15, better known to us as cos- tume girls. Mable Eaton with her squadron of nine pink cheeked girls delve daily into the mysteries of character building, their direct Work means that they pick up any old material, a piece of tinfoil, a scrap of paper, fiddle with it and see what happens. If she is ingenious, something clever may happen, and it will if she has been fortunate to secure a place with this committee. At present, Bette McCul- lough, Lorraine Downey, Vera Blackford, Mary Brownson, Marguerite Green, Iuanita Thomas, Maxine Overholser, Betty Samuel, and Buth Com' iskey a r e numbered among the chosen few. At the close of this se- mester 4U3 costumes will have emerged forth to challenge our p I a c e among the school activi- ties. Secretly praying are they who are most concerned, that a class in costume Design may be established to share with us our stage de- lights. Bon Travail Bien Eait. Vive the Home Economics Department. Z 5, 3, 5, 1 Q 1 22 ABRAHAM LINCOLN HIGH SCHOOL ' DES MOINES, IOWA 24-5-4- THE CAP AND GOWN PARADE MONG the season of events encountered by the graduat- ing seniors was the "Get-together" which was the grand beginning of it all, Cadle Pettet's tiny but prolific tin Iazz tunesl horn proved an instrument of worth, because he kept everyone tripping the light fantastic with gay and carefree heart. Of course, the election of class officers was exciting for the group of jubilant seniors who selected the people they felt were most capable. And soon came the grand day when the Ftailsplitter carried the streamer announcing Gerald Mil- ler as the class president. The story in the same issue told of the election of the other class officers: Robert Camp, vice president, Helen Hull, secretary, and Roy Sandin, treasurer. Weren't we proud of our unanimous choicel Another party was chalked up on the seniors' calendar of events when the informal came along and found many senior boys learning to dance, or better, improving their frivolous steps. While the boys were thus engaged, the girls planned attire that was nothing short of stunning. International Day followed closely this informal affair. The day where the lively imaginations of this winter assemblage of graduates ran riot with unusual and bewildering results. Countries and people of renown were well represented. Between these outstanding events such as, the Senior elec- tion and International Day there were innumerable little things that happened that made the Senior semester a great deal more interesting and impressive than the other se- mesters in high school. There were pictures to be taken, cards to be printed, jewelry to be selected and announce- ments to be mailed, No slight occasion was the Formal, which was att-ended by a large group of senior, alumni, and other high school students who were invited guests. Dancing under colored lights in a beautifully decorated room and to the music of the A, L. H. S. orchestra everyone gave the appearance of nota- bles fclass notablesl, And then the banquet where music, food, and gaiety made even the dullest gasp with delight. The girls in their glitter- ing formals appeared "chic" with their well groomed escorts, fthe senior boysl. With Billy Gale as toastmaster, a group of classmates were called upon to propose toasts and the Ianuary Class Banquet proved a tremendous success, But the grandest, biggest thrill of all our lives came when, in answer to our name, we walked across the platform to receive our diplomas. As we gazed into tthe sea of faces swimming before us, we realized while a sob caught in our throats that we were one of them-no longer an active Lin- colnite-the Cap and Gown Parade had come to a final, dignified, eventful conclusion. 49331 SEQ O -'Q rr 75 l' 'f' o v ftf 6 MOINES hc A Vcrtiscrs Press GEORGE S.

To prove it, that William E. Gale, better known as time, and anything would you believe Billy or "The Editor," and one of the most intelligent boys in happy year and a half in kindergarten, the school, spent a and then flunked the first grade. "A bad beginning means a good ending." Anything can happen. Students at Lincoln High may have frequently seen a very tall girl and a very short boy walking serenely down the corridor. The girl is Iessie McAfee, the tallest l2A girly the boy reigns the Kingdom of the Small under the name Bruno Caligiuri. Katherine Manatt and Ruby Sharpless have the honor of graduating at sixteen. Cadle Pettet and Frances O'Brien are the wise old ones. Ladoit Stevens is the slowest, and Mando Tonini is the quickest. Gentlemen may prefer blondes. lf they do, here is a list of eligible ones: lean Knouf, Margaret Coila LaBrash, Asta Berg, and Bernice Burgess. The ladies have not such a wide choice. The only gentlemen blondes are: Cadle Pettet, and Hilmer Westergaard. Alack, and alas, however, there is not a single redheaded lady in the class, and Victor Clarke has the honor of being the only fiery-haired boyl There are num- erous brunettes, but let suffice to say that Bruno Caligiuri, Alma Fontanini, lames Dishon, lames Milligan, Theresa DeFino, Robert Altomari, Bob Richards, Mary Mazza, Mary Marturello, and Elizabeth Renzo, are the darkest ones. As to talent-just take your choice. Singersl dancersl pianistsl typistsl All are abundant: Bernice Burgess tickles the ivories in a hot manner, Alma Fontanini elicits beautiful classical music from the piano, Frances O'Brien is also a pianist of note. lf it's rhythm you Want, just borrow the "Swing lt High Boys"-Cadle Pettet and Harold Hayes. Billy AS IT SEEMS Gale is very capable of making "hill billy" music from his pal, the harmonica. The "twinkle toes" of the class is lean Knouf. Charles Mortale is the class loaier, and that profession certainly takes talent, Bob "Dizzy Dean" Camp is runnerup for the honor. You have probably seen these two stealing the mystical forty winks at any time of day. Marguerite Mazzei dramatizes short skits. The class is also well represented by string instrument players. George Neff plays a guitar, Frances O'Brien plays a cello, and Mary Louise Parish plays the violin. lf you prefer a merry tune, take our advice and listen to the future radio station W-E M-A-K-E G-O-O-D M-U-S-I-C. You will hear Mary Woodman, Bernice Burgess, Ann Guidicessi, Cadle Pettet, and Ruby Sharpless. Turning to the business side of the class, you will want a good typist. How about Mary Louise Parish, Alma Fontanini, Helen Hull, lean Knouf, Pollyanna Rogerson, and Theresa DeFino. Fun and laughter mingle with hard work and studyt?D in this first-rate graduating class. The "silly-billies" are those well-known fun provokers Lester Folwell, Harold Hayes, Bill Lee, Charles Mortale, Cadle Pettet, and Howard "Spanky MacFarland" Warrell. However, there are some conscientious class members. "The Professor" is probably the hardest worker. Oh, you don't know him? Yes, you do. "The Professor" is Roy Sandin. Another earnest fellow is Gerald Miller, class president. Edith Ahern outraces the girls in perseverance. Sportsl Ah, yes. Iohnny Anderson, Wilbur Warburton, Bob Camp, and Bob Richards top the bill-board. Take your choice. They're all good. There you are, folksl lt's up to you. Take what you want, lt's yours. lust don't ever say the lanuary, l938, Class hasn't everything a class needs.

K4 24 ABRAHAM LINCOLN HIGH SCHOOL DES MOINES, IOWA Smashin' Ahead COACH Harold Iohnson, second team football and junior track coach, came to Lincoln directly from Phillips school of Des Moines. Coach Iohnson has received degrees from Penn College and the University of Iowa. At Penn he majored in chemistry, and at Iowa in physiology and physical education. Here Iohnson received let- ters in basketball and football, and was a senior blanket winner. His first coaching job came at State Center, Iowa, l923. ln l925, as coach at Eagle Grove, he trained a boy who won the state mile run, and from his foot- ball team rose an all-state tackle, besides three boys who received honorable mention. Before coming to Des Moines, Iohnson coached at Bosse High school at Evansville, Indiana. What about junior track and football at Lincoln next year? Many ninth grade boys were on the team last year, and with the additional ninth grad- ers this year Lincoln should have a fairly good sec- ond football team, according to Coach Iohnson, but track remains to be seen. Lynx i'Swingers" Place LINCOLN HIGHS well balanced golf team finished the fall season with a third place in the state meet and a second place in the city contest. With but two weeks of practice Coach W. S. Morganthaler and his clubsters journeyed to Iowa City to participate in the state meet which was on the University of Iowa course. After banging shots into a strong wind for l8 holes the Lynx squad emerged in third place with a four man total of 354, Luti Fontanini paced the Railsplitters with an 85. Roosevelt high of Des Moines won first place honors with a total of 343 and Franklin high of Cedar Rapids finished second with a 350 total. The Railsplitters again took up their war clubs on a cold, wet morning in Oct. to play in the city meet which took place on the lengthy Waveland slopes. Again they felt defeat at the hands of Roosevelt and had to be satisfied with second place. Third place was shared by East and North as neither team had the required number of players, Because of graduation, Bruno Caliguiri and Mando Tonini will be absent from the squad next spring, Their loss will be bolstered by the services of Caruso Fontanini and lack Folsom, two boys who have seen plenty of the fairways. Coach Morganthaler will have the same first four boys re- turning, Luti Fontanini, Otto Mason, Dwayne Stebbins, and Lloyd Tate, next spring. They are expected to be pushed to the limit by Don Andriano and Harold Saltzrnan, who have seen plenty of competition. Congratulations Ian. '38 Grads! LEOPOLD'S STANDARD SERVICE S.

Having received a B.A. degree from North Central college and M.A. from Syracuse university, Mr. Engel's knowledge of music has been further aug- mented from the following institutions: Sherwood Music school in Chicago where he was instructed in band conducting, Bush Conservatory, also in Chi- cago, for orchestra conducting: Northwestern uni' versity, choir conducting, University of Wisconsin, music appreciation, and Christiansen Choral school, for choir work. Through his Comprehensive study, and actual ex- perience in dealing with talented musicians, Mr. Engel has promoted the music department to the peak of 60 choir students, 70 in the band, and 55 in the orchestra. Some of the successful productions presented by Mr. Engel and his students are the annual Hilarities, the opera "Martha", "Chimes of Normandy", in l937, and this year "The Mikado". The presentation of these operas, rarely found in high schools, has brought to Lincoln a distinction in music not only locally, but throughout Iowa. Numerous individuals have been awarded su- perior and excellent rating through F. E. Engel's be- lief in hard and conscientious study. Seniors of the Ianuary, l938, graduating class leaving the music division of the school are Harold Hayes from the band and Frances O'Brien from or- chestra. These seven seniors will leave the A Cap- pella choir this semester: Bernice Burgess, Alma Fontanini, Ann Giudicessi, Harold Hayes, Charles Mortale, Cadle Pettet, and Mary Woodman. To the orchestra: I do not know what I was playing, Or what I was dreaming then, But I struck one chord of music Like the sound of a great Amen.-Lost Chord.

These four small words spell a world of thrills and excitement. Drama will always stand for a life ever fascinating and ever new. There is some- thing magic about the stage. The thought of it gives you a vivid picture of an evening per- formance. The curtains are closed, the audience in a gay Y i VESPER PRICE mood waits expectantly, sud- denly, the house lights go out, stage lights appear and the curtains slowly openl Of all professions in the world, perhaps none has as much appeal and attraction as acting. No matter what you now plan to do, sometime or other you have probably had the desire to be an actor or act- ress, to be a smiling radiant Cinderella or a brave tall hero, with footlights and a sea of faces glaring up at you. The above reaction to drama may account for Lin- coln High school's large dramatic and speech en- rollment. Most students studing drama and speech will probably not be another Barrymore or a great public speaker. But it is the wish of Vesper Price, dramatic instructor, to help every one of her stu- dents to speak clearly, and slowly, become a good conversationalist, and to speak before a group when called upon with as little self-consciousness as pos- sible. To accomplish this the classroom is kept as informal as possible without disturbing the regular quiet and order. Lincoln's dramatic students not only study and learn to appreciate good drama, but also have the opportunity to put on a real stage production twice a year and sometimes more. This semester's play was "A Murder Has Been Arranged," besides other small one-act plays given for different occasions. Speech students are chosen to introduce speakers for assemblies and to talk to home rooms whenever the need arises. This semester a make-up crew has been selected from the beginning dramatic class to assist with all school productions, including drama and music. Early this year our auditorium was repaired, re- decorated, and made soundproof. The stage has also been equipped with eight new baby spotlights and two tormenters. These are two curtains, which are hung near the center of the stage between the back and front curtains. They may be pulled when- ever a smaller background is required. Candy is now being sold after school to raise money for a Public Address system. All this about drama reminds one of what Shake- speare said, "All the world's a stage, and all the men and women merely players." 30 ABRAHAM LINCOLN HIGH SCHOOL ' DES MOINES, IOWA 2-'bfi Increasing Demand for Business Students AMERICA is becoming more and more conscious of the necessity for special and thorough training of people entering into the commercial field. This fact is evident by the George-Deen Act recently passed by Congress, which allows certain definite aid to schools for the training of students through cooperative part time classes and also in service training for those now in distributive occupations. Des Moines is Iowa's center of commerce and in- dustry and there is an ever increasing demand for individuals specializing in any of the various business courses. Lincoln High school's commercial department of- fers courses in salesmanship, merchandising, book- keeping and accounting, commercial law, business arithmetic, typing, shorthand, business correspond- ence, business training and commercial geography. Many students, after completing any of these courses, acquire positions with local firms without additional schooling after graduation. There are several outstanding business schools in Des Moines, which offer further training, signifying that the trend of the modern business world, as a whole, is towards a thorough training of persons engaging in commercial vocations. l938 Publications Donald Slye, senior B student, will be the editor of "The Railsplitteru during the l938 spring semester, according to the recent election by the Lincoln High school Board of Publications. Eligibility was based on scholarship, leadership, service and character. Slye was a member of the National Honor Society and was editor of the "Greenhorn" issue of "The Railsplitteru while in journalism. Donald is active in various sports in- cluding football, basketball, and track. "The Railsplitter" usually comes out every other week, and from six to eight issues are published each semester. In preparing an issue, all sources of news ideas are worked out first. News stories are then written up and handed in, copy readers check errors, and finally head lines are made. The written material is sent to the printer who sets up the com- position in type. The printer makes his proofs of stories and advertisements, and the four pages are finally set up. Pages are then sent back to the printer who pub- lishes the amount of papers according to circulation. The papers usually arrive at 8 o'clock on a Tues- day morning when they are distributed. After all is done-the staff is ready to begin another edition. Other staff positions yet to be filled are: associate editor, executive editor, fourth page editor, sports editor, copy editor, society editor, alumni editor, li- brarian, publicity manager for Register and Tribune, Merchants Messenger, Plain Talk and American Citizen, staff artist, business manager, circulation manager, advertising manager, assistant advertis- ing manager, advertising salesman, and engraver.
