Herein you will see the intimacies from the diary of the gradu-
ating class of January, 1947, the woes and joys, the triumphs and
defeats. All the important things to school life now will he re-
vealed when hefore only a few locked and secluded little diaries
had known them.
Vve came from different schools and were first united in the
wonder and fear of Lincoln high. school. From then, until ninth
grade, each pursued his own interests and was welded into a
united group. Since then, even with losing a good share of our
class to Uncle Sam, we have brought all the groups together into
one hig happy family, the senior class.
It has been a Ioig time, a fast time, and happy beyond belief.
Won,t you skip hack through a few years and look at what we did
in our past life at Lincoln?
Many long years ago one hundred and
three little 7-Bas wallced very happily and
just a little frightened into the corridors oi
After a weelc of loewilderment we
gradually accustomed ourselves to our new
environment and hecame Lincolners in
spirit as Well as name.
We made friends, studied, perhaps too
little, and always as a final hope we
wanted to graduate. The years passed,
and heiore we lmew it the 9-A party pre-
parations were loegun and we were 10-B's.
Gul' class diminished and we found
ourselves in 12-A with only 55 students,
22 looys. including servicemen, and 55
With 12-A always comes the election
of class officials. George Hall, president,
and Charles Caligiuri, treasurer, hoth hail
from Park Avenue. while Robert Horton.
vice president, and Harriett Bergstrom,
secretary, are Howe school alumni.
Lincoln will always have a special
place in our memory, for whatever we do
in this world we shall owe some part of
our success to alma mater.
As graduates we look loaclc and all that
can he said is, "Goodbye, we've had a
wonderful time." -
