Many southside houses had no heat, so school opened at 5:30 to allow kids to warm up and take showers. Even school lunches cost only 14 or 15fV ' reminisces Mr. Francis Talarico, a Lincoln graduate and a member of the faculty for 33 years. Fifty years have not only caused lunches to skyrocket to 45 c, but have also remodeled Lincoln ' s phy- sical and academic image. The original 20 acres of fields and open countryside have been cemented into parking lots or used in tripling the floor space of 1923 ' s 55 rooms. The neighborhood is suburban Des Moines with heat and running water, not rural Iowa of 1900. Attitudes on education have changed as well. Once school ' s purpose was to drill classrooms of children on Geography, History, Math, Reading and proper beha- vior. In 1973, over 70 required and elective courses were offered at Lincoln with such specifics as Crea- tive Writing, Electricity, and Urban Geography. Today, recognizing the wide spectrum of the southside com- munity, Lincoln High School is dedicated to the acceptance of each individual, and to the development of that individual ' s capacity for learning. Extra-curricular activities have mushroomed from competitive football, basketball, track and ten- nis in 1926 to nearly 20 boys and girls sports in 1973, with more be- ing added each year. It was not until the 1930 ' s that general interest groups such as band, cheerleading, and Pep Club were created, yet to- day almost every hobby or specialty from skiing to volunteer services is available to Lincoln students. Even so, one aspect of youth con- tinues through all generations. Prin- cipal Melvin Bowen expressed it this way, " Although the course of studies and the physical plant have changed, and the world has become more mechanized, students are still striving for peace, success, and hap- piness in life, and philosophically, their dreams are much the same as students in early years. " The new Lincoln gym in 1967 is cap- tured through a fisheye lens (above).

Lincoln began as a junior high the first two years, continuing to have seventh, eighth, and ninth grade students until 1967. The first enrollment numbered about 690 compared to more than 2100 students currently enrolled. Lincoln ' s first graduation was in January, 1927, with thirty-four members. Faculty numbers have increased from 29 to 104. Mrs. Edna Bohl- man, an economics teacher, inno- vated the Weeks scholarship fund. Mrs. Bohlman was an example of the extra time faculty gave to the school by carrying out fund raising projects to obtain financing for 13 college scholarships. In 1934, mar- ried women were asked to resign to help the job market during the de- pression, leaving teaching positions to men and single women. Only three administration changes have occurred in Lincoln ' s history. Nathan Weeks, the first principal, was replaced by the vice-principal Aaron Hutchens. Mr. served for twenty-three years being replaced by Melvin in 1958. Weeks before Bowen The playful faculty of 1927 line up for a picture in front of Lincoln (be- low).

With a small amount of equipment to protect them against the falls and bruises, they beat their first opponent, North, 12-0. Lincoln ' s football team began in the South Central Conference, also playing with teams around the city. In 1937 Lincoln tied with Indianola for the South Central crown. 1941 brought Coach Russ Ruff a city and conference title and the Prep Coach of the Year award. That same year Lincoln stadium and athletic field was dedicated which was officially named Aaron C. Hutchens Stadiums in 1966. 1964 clinched great victory again as Lincoln was co-champion in the city and rated number three in the state of Iowa, sporting a 7-1-0 rec- ord. Basketball, track, and tennis also began in 1926 with high hopes for future victory. Lincoln has captured only two city basketball championships — in 1952 and 1972. In 1952, under the coaching of Francis Talarico, Lincoln won the sectional and ad- vanced to the first round of the district. They also placed first in the South Central Conference. The second title came in 1972 with Lin- coln advancing to the finals in dis- trict. Tennis players who won state singles titles for Lincoln in 1930, 1933, 1941, 1942, and 1968 were Art Johnson, Cullen Story, Harold Johnson, and Chris Johnson, re- spectively. In 1956 Lincoln won city titles in track and cross country. The track team became state champs, with cross country placing second in the state. For the only time in Lin- coln ' s history the 1968 cross coun- try team won the class AAAA championships. Lorin H. Graaff began building Lincoln ' s swim team in 1932, twen- ty years later they placed second in the city and third in the state. In 1954 All-American Bill Nesson captured the city and state diving championships. Again in 1962 with Brian Percival leading the team, Lincoln finished third in state. Six years later Dirk Han- son, All-American, set state records in the 200 1M and 100 breaststroke. Abe wrestlers captured city titles in 1954, 1956, 1957, 1967, and 1968. In 1956 Lincoln grabbed the district title. Now, years after that first football team, girls are competing in swim- ming, basketball, gymnastics, tennis, golf, and almost all other varsity sports once reserved for boys.

Despite an eight room science and art wing addition and the use of six mobile units to relieve con- gested classrooms, the 2146 enroll- ment found open space precious. Whether dancing with the throng at DECA ' s mixer, battling through overcrowded hallways, waiting in I.D. lines homeroom by homeroom, or discovering standing room only in the library, Lincolners realized that being the biggest school in the city has its disadvantages. and Pat Carey dance to the rhythm of the Pilgrims during the first mixer, sponsored by DEC A (above). —20— Photographer captures the funny side of I.D. pictures as senior LuAnn Davey takes her turn (left).

Despite the threat of punter Cheryl Wood, Drill Team, Flags and Cheerleaders held Pep Club scoreless and captured their second straight Powder Puff football title, 6-0 (bottom right). Celebrate Roosevelt Defeat, Anniversary A fiftieth year theme and a vic- tory over rival Roosevelt climaxed a spectacular 1972 Homecoming, highlighted by traditional events. Costume day, a new event this year, created memories of the past fifty years. Students adorned the halls in outfits of bobby socks, pony tails, dangling jewelry and circle skirts. Boys even appeared with slicked back hair styles. By stu- dent applause, Debbie Amend and Scott Andrews received first place for their winning outfits. The traditional balloon rise open- ed an exciting game which included a halftime show by the band and the presentation of the Homecom- ing court. The peak of excitement came with a 24-20 victory over Roosevelt. Drill Team, Flags, Batons and Cheerleaders captured a 6-0 victory over their rival, the Pep Club, in the Powder Puff game. Coached by football veterans Comiskey, Oatts, Lipovac, Dresselhuys, Edwards, Eaton, Kaili, Newton, and Martur- ello, the girls on both teams learned true-life plays that our Lincoln gridders executed during the season. Green freckles and paint splotch- es decorated the faces of the car decorators themselves, in the Girls ' Club Car Paint. Autos ornamented in maroon and gold streamers and ' " Rope the Riders " slogans, rolled off the assembly line. Later the cars toured the streets of South Des Moines in the Car Caravan led by the King, Queen, and court riding in gleaming Shriner convertibles.

With a broken ankle, cast, and crutches. Queen Renee, escorted by King Pete Riccelli, reigned with dignity over the week ' s festivities and victorious football game with Roosevelt. The complimentary court of Cheryl Clark, Debbie Cook, Liz Gregg, Liz Tucci, Mary White and King candidates Chris Brookhart, Tom Comiskey, Mike Long, Steve Rasmussen and Jim Thorup, repre- sented most major clubs and sports — from cheerleading to DECA. A coveted speaker during an elec- tion year, Governor Robert Ray de- layed his campaign to address the student body, setting the mood for the Coronation assembly Friday morning. The band, Iron Horse, provided musical entertainment all the way from Beach Boys to hard rock at the Homecoming dance on Saturday night. More than 150 couples, one of the largest crowds in recent years, attended the semi-formal event held in the gym. Governor Robert Ray addresses students during the Coronation assembly (above).

After nine months devoted to fund raising, the girls finally pur- chased Dacron turtlenecks, skirts and knecsocks in a flashy maroon and gold combination. Fund raising aside, the 73 squad also won awards for spirit and cheerleading. Lincoln captured first place in both categories at the In- ternational Cheerleading Founda- tion ' s summer camp in Canton, Missouri.

Sparking spirit at all sophomore athletic events was a squad of six sophomore cheerleaders under the direction of Captain Debbie Gering. These girls managed to arouse en- thusiasm and excitement at JV foot- ball, basketball and wrestling meets, as well as sophomore boys and girls basketball games, football and swimming.

Planned by a teacher-student com- mittee headed by Mr. Vernon Bly, they were programs filled with va- riety: pie-throwing, Drill Team and Flag performances, and skits. Two comical assemblies by DECA fea- tured cheerleaders from the Class of ' 50, Polar Bears, and the ferocious Rail Machine which crushed the Riders.

" ringing from Lincoln stands at sports events held genuine meaning for participants in this year ' s Pep Club. Instilling order in the 300 mem- ber club were President Liz Gregg, Kat hy Zenor, vice-president; Sue Hardy, secretary; Debbie Amend, treasurer, and Stuart Jacobsen, sponsor. Sporting new maroon sweatshirts during football season in addition to new basketball uniforms, Pep Club provided for a background of school color at athletic events throughout the year. Planning Pep assemblies and rallies, creating orig- inal pre-game posters, and organiz- ing bus trips to Ottumwa and Chari- ton occupied the hours of many enthusiastic Pep Clubbers. Time and effort spent on club activities did not only profit individuals, but Lincoln as a school. Cheerleaders, Drill Team, and Pep Club are momentarily stunned near the end of an agonizing game (above).

With funds raised from Build Lincoln Higher memberships and bake sales, Flags purchased a tape recorder and began a library of the songs they performed. Captain Kim Hanson, Co-Captain Debi Wilkin- son, Secretary-Treasurer Debbie Miller and sponsor Miss Leigh Holm were initial in the success of the project. The Majorettes mastered daring tricks with flaming batons and knives along with the routine stunts this season. According to Captain Becky Morgan, another main ac- complishment was receiving reversi- ble jackets from southside mer- chants to keep warm at football games. Along with Becky, sponsor Mrs. Carol Brown, Secretary Vickie Car- ter and Treasurer Merrie Smith pro- vided Baton leadership. With only seconds to showtime, Baton Captain Becky Morgan, Shellie Ballard, Vickie Carter and Debbie Loghry wait nervously (below).

Drill Team Is More Than Fun ' Shrill whistles and cries of " Line up for the second routine! " begin the day for the 33 members of the Lincoln High Drill Team, arriving for 7:30 a.m. practice. The Drill Team, headed by Co- Captains Laurie South and Debbie Anderson, Secretary-Treasurer Shel- ly Henry, and sponsor Mrs. Linda Ritland, has been involved in a mul- titude of activities this year. These include: bake sales to raise money for pom poms, bus trips, and bou- tonnieres for football players; half- time shows with the Railsplitter Marching Band; parades; decoration of Varsity locker rooms; and the dreaded Wednesday morning weigh- ins, which were a source of dismay and humor among the girls. " Most people think Drill Team is just a lot of fun, but money and many hours of work are involved. We paid for our uniforms and prac- ticed twice a week all summer, not to mention the early morning drills, " explained Laurie. Juniors Jan Groene, Michelle Lau, Joan Lee and Kim Warne contemplate their upcoming performance (above right).

P | —35— Band Director Initiates U of I Techniques " A Year of Change " could very well be the theme of the 1972-73 Lincoln High Railsplitter Band. Changes ranged from 7:00 morning practice to new marching techniques derived from the University of Iowa Band. Early morning practice was initi- ated by first year band director, Dennis Dowell, to perfect routines and formations for half-time per- formances during the football sea- son. With the consent of the U. of I. marching band, fundamental drills in marching, attitude, and playing were executed to the Lincoln bands- men in order to attain precision as individuals and as a group. Because of the increase of the band to 1 15 members, Drum Major Tom Killum was joined by Christy Hansen, first Drum Majorette.

X Vocal Showmanship Flares Lincoln ' s Vocal Music Depart- ment developed a dynamic new image this year under the dedicated direction of Mrs. Carol Stewart. Concert Choir ' s 100 members spent both daytime and evening hours preparing for the Christmas and Spring Concerts. Members performed at local junior highs, aided in the planning of the musi- cal " George M! " , and participated in large group competitions. Chamber Chorale ' s 26 select members performed classical and madrigal forms at all vocal music concerts. The Chorale contributed two of its members to All-State Choir. Swing Choir added another new dimension to the department. " The New Beginning " specialized in a distinctive modern rock style. Both Boys ' and Girls ' Glee Clubs and Prep Choir performed in all concerts presented by the Vocal Music Department. —40— Mrs. Carol Stewart practices num- ber with members of " George M!

Student Council efforts, besides successful Costume and Mum Days, movies, and charity fund raising, revolved around better quality entertainment for students. " By revising the policy of only one mixer a month to two and allowing Student Council to ad- vise clubs on bands and activities, we ' ve made great strides, " says President Al Knight. Welfare Committee was responsi- ble for holiday parties for under- privileged elementary children and the annual Thanksgiving canned goods drive. Cheryl Gruetzmacher, All-City Student Council President, Treasurer Ellie Glazer and repre- sentatives Jim Wallace, Marilyn Denny, Debbie Amend, Valerie Ceretti, Karl Stundins, and Mike Marturello coordinated All-City events like the C.R.O.P.

Sophs Dominate Pancake Sale With the Lincoln faculty as chefs and waiters, the annual Pancake Breakfast netted $650. Individual and homeroom ticket sales were dominated by the sophomore class which also crowned its own queen. 1973 Flapjack Queen Cathy Renda was presented with a $25 savings bond and a corsage. Cathy was a candidate from Mr. Ronald Peterson ' s homeroom which sold the most tickets. Individual students also received prizes in ticket sale competition. Sophomore Jane Shipman sold 34 tickets to receive the first place tape player. An AM-FM transistor radio was awarded to second place winner sophomore Mary Punnelle, who sold 29 tickets. Sophomore Laura Wright received $10.00 for 23 tick- ets as the third place winner. Senior Liz Tucci relinquishes her crown to the ' 73 Flapjack Queen, Cathy Renda (top).

Coordinated by English department chairman Mrs. Lillian Hildreth, its purpose was to inform students about careers and their relation to the English field. Students attended seminars of their choice taught by 87 resource people of various occu- pations from the community. " People from the community es- pecially enjoyed being part of the educational process, " added Mrs. Hildreth.

Members played on jungle gyms, swings, and slides and gobbled do- nuts and orange juice before attend- ing the Lincoln-Ames sophomore football game. Instead of the annual Christmas dance, Girls Club sponsored a cas- ual but festival December mixer. West Minist ' r provided the music and jovial Dave Cornwell, decked in Santa Claus suit and beard, the Christmas cheer. A request for children ' s toys by the Executive Board netted four boxes of gifts that were donated to Bidwell-River- side Community Center. Traditional events like the Home- coming car paint, balloon sale and the February Sweetheart dance con- tinued. Once a month six girls also visited the New Haven Rest Home to entertain the elderly with games and a birthday party. Girls Club members enjoy an early morning swing to work up an appetite for a juice and donut breakfast (bot- tom middle).

In October, 8 DECA students travelled to Waterloo to attend the State Delegate Assembly. At the Area Leadership Conference, stu- dents competed with 7 other high schools in 25 events such as ad copywriting and sales demonstra- tion. March 19 and 20, delegates participated in the State Leadership Conference in Des Moines. The climax of the year was an Em- ployer-Employee banquet. Besides a social agenda of hay- rack rides, sledding, bowling parties and picnics, DECA promoted school spirit by presenting two comical pep skits. Mr. Ben Norman and Mr. Dan Murray directed club activities first and second semester respective- iy.

" " There ' s no secret, kid. Dames are shimple. I never met one that didn ' t understand a slap in the mouth or a slug from a forty-five. " The theme song for the Woody Allen ' s comedy " Play It Again, Sam " , slowly fades and the curtain opens on Peter Yetter, the newly divorced neurotic Allen Felix. Doug Wylie, as Humphrey Bogart, con- stantly gives Allen advice on how to get and treat women. It is to no avail — Allen is just undesirable. Paula Pressly portrays Linda Chris- tie who finally falls in love with Allen, even though she is married to his best friend (Bob Kennedy). Sound complicated? " The situations may be over- exaggerated, but it was one of the funniest plays I ' ve seen at Lincoln, " praised junior Tamie Burt.

Cohan When approximately eighty of Lincoln ' s thespians and musicians get together under the leadership of dynamic directors, things happen. Focus this talent into producing a power-packed Broadway musical, and the results are startling. Large audiences witnessed such results when " George M! " was presented March 9-10 in the Lincoln audi- torium. Mrs. Carol Stewart and Miss Carol Harms, co-directors, began preparing for the presentation with careful casting of leading charac- ters and chorus members. Nightly rehearsals ensued until after nine weeks of intense preparation, the show opened and was declared a " smash " . Ray Newman ' s adept per- formance brought all of the spirit and vigorous dedication of the near legendary George M. Cohan to life.

President Sue Hammon, Vice-Presi- dent Joe Sullivan, Secretary-Treas- urer Jim Alexander, and sponsor Mr. Jerry Chiaramonte, worked together in promoting activities throughout the year. The Debate and Forensics teams, coached by Mr. Gordon Burnstein and Mrs. Janet Schwarz, respective- ly, were two of the most active clubs at Lincoln High School. Long hours of practice and sacri- ficed time on weekends traveling to events, proved Lincoln worthy of winning the many honors and tro- phies in the field of public speaking and debate. Projects Include Devotion To Children a Lincoln ' s Volunteer Services Club traveled to nearby schools as teach- ers ' aids in afternoon activities. Under the guidance of sponsor Mrs. Rae Jean Robbins, members repre- sented Lincoln at Park Avenue, Howe, Lovejoy and McKinley ele- mentary schools, and various junior high schools. The Red Cross Club stressed the satisfaction a person receives in serving his fellow man. Mrs. Huitt, group sponsor, headed this club.

Led by Sponsor Mrs. Jean Frazier, President Cheryl Clark, Vice-President Marilyn Den- ny, Secretary Judi Houghtaling, Treasurer Sue Harris, and Publicity- Art Director Jill Hoffman, the Mer- maids worked hard for several months in order to perfect the show. Highlights of the show included special numbers consisting of two solos, a quartet of seniors, and a trio of juniors.

Office girls ran errands, sorted absence slips into teachers ' boxes, handled mail and operated the switchboard. The counselling staff acted as receptionists by answering phone calls, filing and greeting students. Librarian helpers checked books in and out, as well as returning books to the shelves and distribu- ting periodical material to students. Meanwhile, student center volun- teers donated their free time to candy and pop sales. Volunteer office staff (top).

Three All-Metro Players Spark Close Season Mark Anderson, first team All- Metro and second team All-District catcher; Tim Joyce, second team All-Metro pitcher; and Bill Martu- rello, second team All-Metro out- fielder, helped Lincoln fight for an 8-6 record in the close Metropoli- tan conference under the direction of Coach Bob Locker. Lincoln was kept in the Metro race down to the wire behind the solid hitting of Anderson (.355) and Bob Fouts (.400). Terry Joss, who was also a fine pitcher, could be counted on to pinch hit with an average of .364. Pitching was also an important asset in the 14-9 overall campaign with Jeff Parsons, Tim Joyce, and Terry Joss. Four varsity letter winners will return for the ' 73 season: seniors Dave Kaili, Bill Marturello, Bill Roth, and junior Bob Sinclair. Also advancing from a successful junior varsity team will be Gary Edwards, Donn Dresselhuys, Lance Braucr, Roger Chambers, Kent Cherry, Ken Dale and Kyle Fergu- son.

It requires tremendous dedication among individuals, " re- lates gymnastics coach, Mrs. Linda Ritland. Only slightly hampered by in- experience in their first year of var- sity competition, gymnasts trounced Marshalltown, Ankeny, and Urban- dale and scored well against power- ful Roosevelt, East, and Dowling. The squad was piloted by seniors Laurie South, who qualified for the regional meet in beam; Jane Nagel and Valerie Ceretti in vaulting and uneven parallel bars; and Jeanie Guzman on balance beam.

Harriers Paced By Koscielak, Van Nostrand Lincoln ' s cross country team, un- der the helm of second year coach, Dave Bennett, clinched their 1972 season with a 5-3 dual meet record. Individual accomplishments were highlighted by junior John Koscic- lak ' s establishment of a new school record of 7:26 in the 1.5 mile run, while senior Jamie Van Nostrand narrowly missed the two mile record by two seconds with a 10:08 clock- ing.

A last second Homecoming victory over arch-rival Roosevelt highlight- ed an otherwise disappointing sea- son. Abe bright spots on offense in the dismal 4-5 campaign included the running of All-Metro halfback Tom Comiskey and the passing combination of Dave Kaili to Donn Dresselhuys. Comiskey proved to be the most durable back in the Metro, picking up 1024 yards in 235 carries. Dresselhuys hauled in 14 Kaili aerials for 5 touchdowns. Kaili hit on 41 % of his passes. All- Metro center Joe Oatts led an expe- rienced line that was decimated by injuries and bad breaks. Veteran linebackers Mark Hagen, Mike Long, and Jim Wiand were all side- lined for various periods throughout the season. The backfield corps was also slowed by injuries to Kent Cherry and Gary Edwards. —89— —90— Comiskey Trips 1000 Lincoln football teams have long been known for their rugged style of defensive play. 1972 was no exception. Returning from the 7-2 season of 1971 were just two defensive starters, and the Rails had to begin almost from scratch in their efforts to mold an efficient unit. All-Metro Jack Eaton was the leader of this crew, as he handled his lineback- ing duties in a brutal fashion.

Tom Lipovac and Bill Roth, who was also on the All-Metro second unit, provided the nucleus for a strong defensive backficld. Late season bloomer Dave McDonald came on strong as a linebacker. Leading the way next year will be Mark Eggers, Tim Yancy, Lance Brauer, Dave Thompson, and John Thorup. The Lincoln tradition for aggressive defensive play should continue as the school heads in its second half-century of existence.

The little Abes featured a potent offense running under the leader- ship of quarterback Rick Parsons. Doug Speichcr, Steve Foldes, Craig Hall and Doug Fouts headed the ground attack, and Jim Lankford and Joe Kline were the main pass- ing targets in the ' 72 campaign.

The offense was led by leading rusher and scorer Rick Kaili, a hard running fullback. In addition to Kaili the frosh could also rely on the running of Mark Morgan, Roger Hart, and quarterback Kevin Livengood. The defense was anchored by Kaili and Chuck Agan at lineback- ers, Matt Allen and Jan Enslow defensive ends, Tim Mason at nose- man, and defensive backs Lorenzo Colbert, Jim Bell, and Mark Morgan.

Lincoln ' s first district title in its fifty year history, with a new school and sub-state scoring record of 55 points set by Jim Thorup, high- lighted a successful season. Lincoln finished second in a suspense filled season in the Metro, sporting a 17-7 overall record, under Coach John Carle. Though only two lettermen returned from last year ' s Metro championship team, Lincoln jumped in and out of the conference lead throughout the season. Jim Thorup led the Metro scoring with a 26.5 point average and received All-Conference and first team All- State honors. Senior Steve Ras- mussen also a returning letterman, held the court with juniors Kevin Downing and Paul Lantz. John Thorup, the city ' s only sophomore starter, and sophomore Mark Long also were important contributors. Sophomore Mark Long shoots over Indianola defender in 85-65 victory (left).

I Record 55 By All-Stater Jim Thorup Rails 3 Shy Of State Highlights for the season included consecutive rompings of Hoover and Valley which threw the lead into a 4-way tie. Tech and Hoover slipped out of contention causing a show- down between Valley and Lincoln for the Metro title. The Rails held the lead until the last 3 minutes when Valley slipped by. Heading into district, Lincoln trounced Indianola 85-65, then came from behind to defeat Pella 84-76, winning Lincoln ' s first dis- trict title ever. Sub-state action against Tech brought an over time thriller with Lincoln winning 96-94. Lincoln met Marshalltown in sub- state finals and was defeated 72-69 to end their season.

Anchored by the strong talents of seniors Jack Eaton at 155, Fran Coulthard at 112, and Jim Rhoades, heavy- weight, the team had an overall record of 5 wins, 4 losses, and 1 tie. Faced with a tough conference, the Railsplitter grapplers finished fourth in the city conference. Highlights of the wrestling season included winning the Knoxville In- vitational for the second year in a row. Led by co-captains David Brandt, Fran Coulthard, Jack Eat- on, and Jim Rhoades, the Rail- splitters also captured their own Lincoln Invitational. Five Lincoln wrestlers gained po- sitions in the sectional meets. There were three first places by Jack Eaton, Jim Rhoades, and sopho- more Jeff Draper.

Team standouts include sopho- more Cricket Edwards who finished fourth and twelfth respectively in the State 100 yard breaststroke and 200 I.M.; and junior Steve Fort- nam, who finished ninth in the 100 yard backstroke in State. Leo For- tune also contributed to the ninth place State finish by earning a tenth place in diving. The two re- lay teams also ended their season with a high state rating. Tim Bur- gess finished first in the District meet in the 200 yard freestyle. During the regular season four pool records were broken: the medley relay, 100 yard backstroke, 400 yard freestyle, and 400 yard free- style relay.

For those undecided on a career, shop and drawing classes give students skills that will help them to make an occupational de- cision. Although open to all stu- dents, enrollment is almost exclu- sively male. Students in these classes draw up construction plans for houses, learn to maintain and repair cars, build furnishings for their homes, and many other projects. Shop courses build a more intelligent consumer. Junior John Cardamon sands a record cabinet for a wood shop pro- ject (above).

Students are given new opportuni- ties to branch out into their own areas of interest. Studied are such diverse fields as parliamentary pro- cedure and group discussion. Ex- perience provided by these courses gives insight for later choice of vocations. Part of this new attitude was re- flected in an " English Career Day " sponsored by the English depart- ment on December 5th and 6th, 1972. On these two days, eighty politicians, dancers, disc jockies, and professionals from the Des Moines community talked to stu- dents about the different careers in which they are engaged and how a knowledge of English is useful to them. New topics are constantly being introduced or eliminated subject to the student enthusiasm they gener- ate. The result is a high-interest curriculum and a more satisfied student. Mrs. Hankinson points out funda- mentals of writing to student (right). —136— —138— ENRICHING: Library Aids Students In Studies The library not only enriches and supplements the school ' s curriculum, it also provides for recreational reading. As interest shifts so do the library holdings. Books ranging from college material to very read- able high-interest material are avail- able. Every year 1,000 to 2,000 books are added to the library ' s present 16,000. Although most of the contributions come from school board money, the Kiwanis Club also presents a check to the Lincoln library for purchases of literature. The library subscribes to 115 dif- ferent periodicals, and possesses 10,000 back issues. The individual study carrells, in- troduced in the library two years ago, provide students with less dis- tractions and more privacy in their studies. In the future the staff hopes to be complete with filmstrips, records, cassettes, film loops, and trans- parencies. Miss Cole checks out books to stu- dents (top left).

World History, which used to be a required course for all tenth grad- ers, has now been changed to United States History. Also offered as an alternative is Geography in an Ur- ban Age, focusing on themes of settlement and urban geography. International Relations is a one semester elective course which of- fers an in depth study of relations among nations. Another one se- mester course is Cultural Anthro- pology, in which the student studies the structures, values, and psychol- ogies of various cultures. A one semester class open only to seniors is Afro-American History, a course that describes the blacks ' role in American History. American Gov- ernment and Economics are one semester courses that are now of- fered only to seniors, and are a requirement for graduation. Next year these courses will be open to both juniors and seniors. Mr. Summy reviews America ' s heritage (top right).

With thirty hours of class, twelve hours of simulator, and six hours behind the wheel under their belts they cannot help but be the s afe and considerate drivers they are expected to be. Drivers Educa- tion is offered to students 15 and older who have acquired an instruc- tion permit, and wish to obtain their drivers license before the age of eighteen. Valuable experience is gained in this course, which not only benefits the students, but also all drivers in general. A student cautiously maneuvers driver ed car through parking lot (top left).

Department heads, Mr. Robert VanderLinden and Mrs. Jean Fra- zier, along with Mr. Ron Peterson, Mr. Robert Locker, Mr. Tom Cady, and Mrs. Linda Ritland, are seeing that the students of Lincoln stay in peak physical condition. Alterations in the boys ' depart- ment include a wrestling tourna- ment in each gym class to supple- ment the usual battleball, weight- lifting, and running. These changes also reached the girls ' physical education department. Coach Cady, in addition to his three hours a day teaching boys ' P.E. and his duties as both girls ' and boys ' swimming coach, taught two hours of girls ' P.E. Changes in the girls department include a one day a week require- ment for seniors instead of two or three days a week, and more selec- tion of what the student wishes to take. Gymnastics, swimming, tag football, tennis, basketball, and weight watching are offered through- out the week. Girls play badminton during gym (top). Action steps up during volley- ball game (above).

The department offered a wide range of business courses this year, as it had others. They include: Typing, Shorthand, Business Law, Bookkeeping, Arith- metic, Consumer Business, and Data Processing. The objective of these courses is to provide sufficient skills to attain entry-level positions in business and industry. But they are also transferable to home situa- tions, and private knowledge useful whether the student goes to college or not. One of the projects of the Lin- coln Business Department this year was the office education program. This program placed students in clerical positions in the local com- munity so that they might gain prac- tical experience in business situa- tions.

Begin- ning and Advanced Food and Nu- trition are two one semester courses that study the nutritional needs of persons of varying ages and health. Housing and Home Furnishings is a course developed to aid the stu- dents in purchasing and maintaining adequate home furnishings. Tex- tiles and Clothing explore consumer information about fibers, fabrics, clothing, and accessories, but also delve into construction techniques, including alterations and fitting. Personal and Family Living is de- signed to help the students become aware of their responsibilities as adults in today ' s society. Child Development allows the student to explore human development through the prenatal, postnatal, infancy, pre-school, and grade school years by emphasizing the worth of the family in our culture. Related vo- cational areas such as pre-school and elementary teaching, day care center and other social services are also provided. 4 4 ft Kathy Lukehart finishes cutting out dress she is working on (left).

This course is designed to give the art student the backgroun d he will need to con- tinue his art career. After Art Fundamentals, the student can branch out into Art II and III, two semester courses focusing on draw- ing, painting, and sculpting. If the student is more interested in crafts, he can take Crafts II and III, where he has an opportunity to work with textiles, wood, ceramics, and jew- elry. The Music Department started fresh this year with new teachers in both the vocal and the instrumental areas. The vocal side of the depart- ment offers the student many differ- ent groups, including: Boys Glee, Girls Glee, Concert Choir, and the modern madrigal singers. Instru- mental music is composed of both band and orchestra. Music appreci- ation is a one semester course that studies the history and styles of music. A —150— STIMULATING: Math Department Encourages Thought Gory Bagby Vernon Bly Lowell Dougherty The endeavors of the Mathe- matics Department this year include the creation of new courses to stim- ulate both the math layman and those students with more experience. One of these new courses is Math Appreciation, a one semester liberal arts approach to students who have completed Algebra I and Geometry. The students ' interests are the main focus of this course. The Math Lab, created last year to provide flexibil- ity in the learning process for the individual student, is available to every student who wishes to learn at their own pace. The college math course is expanded this year using new techniques of computer programming. An advanced College Math course is offered to students who have successfully completed College Math in their junior year. It pro- vides a fundamental foundation in theory and application plus an ex- cellent base for those interested in pursuing a calculus program in college.

Mr. Eckey returns test papers (below). —151— —152— DIVERSIFYING: Science Focuses On The Individual The Science Department, hindered slightly by late furnishings for their new surroundings, is developing into one of the most liberal departments Lincoln has ever seen. Surging into an individual study program, the department is offering new concepts to aid the students. A media center, where pupils can check out numer- ous study aids, and the audio tutori- al instructor, where a student can listen to tape recorded instructions if he is having difficulty in a certain area, are two such innovations. At the opening of the second se- mester the department expanded its boundaries to include five new sub- jects: Ecology, Botony, Zoology, and Consumer chemistry and Elec- tricity. Botony is offered only in the spring with emphasis on the study of Iowa plants. Mr. Poduska demonstrates experi- ment illustrating air pressure (top). Mrs. Griffin shows student the art of slide mounting (left). —154— ADVANCING: Areas To Help Student In World Today Mrs. Creagh listens as students re- peat language tape (top left). Mrs. Bevington helps Marian Riggs trans- late a difficult passage in a French literature book (bottom left). Mr. Lussie describes best way to apply for a job (above). The work study program begins, for the special education student, in the tenth grade. Upon approval of the teachers and coordinator of work-study, a student is accepted in the program. During his junior and senior years he applies for, interviews for, and obtains a job. Special vocationally oriented courses help eliminate potential problems the student might encounter. Coun- selling by work-study teachers helps the student to decide upon his fu- ture. This year four foreign languages were offered to a record number of students, according to Miss Kathryn Kirkhoff, department head. French is offered in separate classes ranging from first to fifth year. The Latin, Russian, and Spanish offerings go up to the third year. A special Oral Russian course has been developed to attract interest in another lan- guage for those students who would not normally have an interest in a foreign language. trna Bevington Maria Creogh Kathryn Kirkhoff Richard Lussie Barbara Shepherd —155— We are... individuals stirring the crowd... —156— —157— Largest Soph Class Exceeds 800 Russell Abbott Jim Adam Tomi Adams A Ion Ades Gory Agons Kathy Akin Demse Aldndgc Rick Aldndgc Dave Allen John Allen Kathy Allen Paula Allen Annette Allison Dove Allison Andy Amundson Deb i Anderson Kim K.

Elation, Relief Swell Towards Climax With the fall of ' 72 came relief for at least 620 students who could say, " Seniors — finally! " . But for many, the final year was the most significant in terms of accomplish- ments and involvement. Senior activities kicked-off with the building of the traditional Senior Sign at Homecoming. Honoring Lincoln High ' s fiftieth anniversary, the float portrayed a giant revolving birthday cake. Responsibilities of organizing class functions fell to Jim Wallace, class president; Tim Det- rick, vice-president; Chris Brook- hart, treasurer; and Liz Tucci, sec- retary; after their election in De- cember. Work in planning began immediately to achieve the executive committee ' s primary goals: a suc- cessful banquet, Class Day, prom, and commencement. Always in the background were the much appreci- ated advisors, Mr. Robert Wilson and Mrs. Carol Brown. Graduation was the completion of twelve years of study for Class of ' 73, yet the feelings experienced were not only those of relief or elation. Graduation opened the door to a new life experience, and the closing of the year meant opti- mistic anticipation of future objec- tives.

These classes, supervised by Mrs. Kathy Meyers, provide an atmosphere in which the stu- dents could express themselves openly and freely. This has helped to create a broader understanding of youth and its many facets. The moon slides up and sticks in the dark airy sky Like a great dripping soft comb of honey; Coating, drenching , saturating the countryside In syrup-smooth golden haze. It ' s nice to move through the open like this. I don ' t even grapple with The knotty mundane matters of my life — But I drift Through this sea of Honey-dipped darkness, Letting the moon ' s silk light Smooth out the wrinkles In my soul. Janis Glass STAR-CHILD, STAR-DRIFTER Sunny days of golden dapple And cool contrasts shifted slowly Freezing and melting imperceptibly Into night As I lay softly in sweet clover Living apart, a free soul Bound to inner peace And lost in the universe, A star-child, cloud-drifter. My patterns fall upon life whispering words of loneliness. Last night someone put the pieces back into the box and sold it for a dime. Kathy Fitzsimmons cast my thoughts Dull and jagged Into the water. The water returned them To the shore Polished smooth. Marjorie Manz Marjoric Manz Somehow these facts and figures that have been so carefully arranged in my brain are Goofing Off. They are running all around up there in my head — pushing shoving jostling sprawling chaotically. They ' ve really made pandemonium up there. Of course, I think I understand Somewhat why these facts and figures won ' t join rip together and be solidly sensible. You see, They are terribly frightened; they are trying to hide; make room for the multitiude8 of unruly and domineering Summer Thoughts that are rapidly pouring into my mind. Janis Glass —198— WISHING Sometimes I wish life was like an olive you could eat just the part you like and spit out the hard, tough stuff A tear? Oh, good gracious ■no. Must be a little piece of dust. (It is terribly dusty in here, you know Kansas summer, never fails) but never a tear. Lemonade, Kate? Sure, why of course, I ' m just dying to hear about your lovely . . . wedding. George Tenner wonderful man. What a lucky girl you are. Why, yes, I did . . . now did you . . . Now did he really? Can you beat that? I was in Baltimore for a spell last summer; he was nice enough to show me around town (among other things). What? Oh nothing dear, just muttering to myself about the weather. Why yes. We spent a little time together, nothing very meaningful, it seems. But please, go on, tell me about your church wedding, with six bridesmaids and two flower girls and white lace dresses and champagne reception and five piece orchestra but just, excuse me while I try to get this piece of dust out of my eye. Maureen O ' Connor Everyone cries to blue nights and blue nights cry back. But when my cries bounce off your heart, why do you expect me to wait around and hear them echo . . . Kim Warne Kathy Fitzsimmons Life isn ' t always living ; for most its dying a thousand tiincs over. Kathy Fitzsimmons Please excuse me if I don ' t get up I would if I could believe me but you see I ' m carrying this tremendous iveight around inside me and it may a long time before I ever get up again. Maureen O ' Connor —199— HEN FIGHTS I am too old To fight hen fights, Too wise To scratch out eyes and faces. So don ' t raffle tickets Just because you know I ' m lonely. I have my pride. I am miserable, but I am too chicken To fight for you. Marcia Zarley am content To walk in the rain, Blow dandelion seeds, Pat puppies on the head, Exchange insults with a squirrel, Avoid cracks on sidewalks. And other little things That make life simple There ' s plenty of time To tackle the difficult, Solve society ' s problems Make a living, Have big responsibilities, Being grown up. I guess I ' ll stay a kid As long as possible, There ' s a lot of time To be an adult. Patty Morgan reached for a rainbow today, but I missed Perhaps I shall try again tomorrow or perhaps I will mark it up as experience But I will not regret it nor deny it For it is now a part of me, and makes me irhat I am. Becky Abild It ' s yesterday. I try to hold on to each day But time has elongated arms, That stretch out, and grab it from me. although time passes, And stores each day In its warehouse of the past, I can always place an order, To ship that day, Back to my heart, Where it will always be treasured, And never forgotten. Lori Yurigan SEASONS In the spring I was born, To something new, something warm. Then when the summer did come I could walk, I coidd run. Yet in the fall I felt I knew, Nature watched as I grew But in the winter when the end was near I didn ' t cry, no need to fear For I had done what I longed to do I had life in loving you. Les Hazelton You can never say farewell to a part of life you knew, for you never really leave it; you simply tuck it inside your memory and carry it with you always.
