Behind tile colorful and gay midway, the steep roiier coaster, tire concessions
where spun sugar, pop corn, and ixot dogs predominate, a delicate Ioaiance of
efficiency and supervision must ine established.
It is in this way that Lincoln is comparable to a great state fair. Baci: of every
SIIOW, tiiere must ine careful planning and hard work. In tile very casuainess
of such an exiiiiuition, tiiere is beauty-for casuainess is beauty carefully per-
petuated in order that it seems natural.
At Lincoln, the faculty is iiard-Working and persevering, and they seek no
greater reward than for students to siiow an appreciative response by ioyaity to
their aima mater. i
Here students are ciiosen to supervise class activities and committees. They
aspire to sucii positions, because to be eiected to a class office is proof of the
esteem of one's feiiow students.
