Illllll lllllllll fttttfttt -Abraham oCinco(n JJifyli Scltooi 2600 S.W. 9tk i Iflfjoined, 9c 1975 castle builders rainbow chasers illusion breakers idealists ... realists 100-157 158177 .178-199 Dreams for the future, hopes, and plans of tomorrow, taking our fantasies and making them our realities. At Lincoln each of us is striving to reach the end of the rainbow — to find our own pot of gold — full of hopes and dreams. 3 e past . . . Dreams we have reached and dreams we are still reaching for. At Lincoln we have been involved in a year of changes and shortages, gas shortages, paper shortages, higher prices, stocks dropping, loir, ,■ mploymcnt rate, a mild recession, conviction of four government offi- cials, and the first resignation of a United States president and vice-president. Not only nation wide changes, but at Lincoln we too have been faced with the day-to-day hangups and changes of a growing high school: a stricter absence policy, confidentiality law, peer counseling, executive internship program, a new parking lot, proposals of additions to the building, more English electives for sopho- mores, new teachers, cadet teachers, foreign exchange students, change in coaching policies, proposals of busing, and winning state bas- ketball tournament Many of which were our dreams fulfilled and others our dreams falling short. dreams or tlte j ut are We now must dream and hope for the future. To set traditions and new policies for the generations to come and dreams for the rest of our lives. Dreams of open campus, student lounges, smaller classes, more varied classes, student council enlarged, new sports programs, and overall student participation. Dreams of success, happiness, and wealth. All of us waiting to be set free, to get out on our own, build a home, a life, to find and reach our goals and dreams. Each of us a little reluctant, a little fearful, a little disinclined, to leave behind us a part of us, a part of our lives. Even though decisions were hard to settle upon, we have dreams for and from our times at Lincoln. Many of us hesitant to make our decisions because we realize the impact it will have on our future — on the rest of our lives. Hone or the R AILSPLITTERS LINCOLN 6 Administrative woes- confidentiality, busing The attendance policy was a predominant issue faced by the admin- istration during the ' 74-V5 school year. The year was also marked by discussions on desegregation, building expansion and boundary changes. A ruling was enforced by the administration and the Police Department concerning the parking lot. The ruling, passed ten years ago, is being en- forced because of the increasing amount of cars over the past dec- ade. The " Family Ed- ucation Rights and Privacy Act o f 1974 " was passed by the federal gov- ernment in relation to students ' rec- ords. The Act, better known as the C o n f i d entiality Law, is being en- forced at Lincoln by Mrs. Kathleen Sniffer, registrar.

Castle Builders 11 Library invokes study and research " Our aim is to supplement and enrich the classroom, and with that in mind, we try to run a good library ' commented librarian Helen Holt. The library is the one room in the building that becomes science — math — home economics — art — English — foreign lan- guage — commercial — social science — industrial arts — music, as all of these classes use the library. After 14 years, the li- brary is better than ever equipped to serve the needs of students with nearly 20,000 books and hundreds of current and back issues of magazines. " Although more than 600 stu- dents use the library every day, we endeavor to have a person-to- person relationship with each one, " expressed Lillian Cole, librarian.

Castle Builders 13 Learning to understand the business world This year the Business Education department opened new courses for sophomores only. These courses were set up for career exploration office education. The department also provided juniors and seniors with on-the-job training and for the college bound or vocational student. Out of several courses, the student has the choices of: Arithmetic, Business Law, Con- sumer Business, Data Processing, Notehand, Shorthand, and Typing. These courses help students pre- pare for future jobs and career ideas. Distributive Education (DECA) also gives the student an opportunity to work when released from school and to gain a credit. Sponsored by Dan Murray, the club members acquired job skills in ac- tual work situations, working in grocery stores, gas stations, auto shops and other various businesses. Jane Sayers the department head said, " Our main goal is to offer a variety of courses in order to meet the need s of all students no matter what they pian after graduation.

Woodworking program is offering beginning and advanced courses. Beginning students made step lad- ders while advanced classes worked on cabinets and tables. The auto shop course is covering small and large engines and the dis- mantling and reassembling of their own cars. In metal shop, students were taught the fundamentals of shop safety, the use of hand tools and welding techniques. Drafting classes worked on the procedures of mechanical drawing and gives the student a chance to apply the skills in some architectural work.

Students from Phyllis Garnant ' s child development class went to various nursery schools and worked with the children. Other courses offered in this de- partment were home furnishing, personal family living, foods and nutrition and clothing and textiles. These are taught by Phyllis Garnant, Ann Borgen, Janice Roxberg and Patricia Schwartz, who are encour- aged by the number of boys in- terested in the home economics courses.

Students are required to pass driving, class- work and simulator in order to receive a drivers license. There were no curriculum changes, how- ever, the department consists of teacher changes. Two Lincoln teachers, Walter Imig and Francis Belding, were replaced by Floyd Constant and Steve Koroch.

The girls ' physical education classes worked in units for approxi- mately six weeks offering a choice of individual or team sports, gym- nastics, rhythmic exercises, folk dancing, swimming and track. The individual sports program consisted of badminton, archery and tennis. The team sports program offers soccer, basketball and volleyball. The boys physical education classes had different units offered this year. A new unit this year was badminton. Along with basketball, track (spring and fall), wrestling, volleyball and flag football. All two to three week courses, they gave gym students a variety. Studying fundamentals were the goals of these sports games. The state of Iowa requires each student to participate in physical education. The requirement is based on the importance of physical fitness and recreational or leisure time skills in our lives. Castle Builders 19 English classes more elective each year Lincoln ' s English department went through changes this year. The sopho- more English students got the chance to move directly into the 20 English electives this year due to tests which exempted them from taking the stand- ard English program. Approximately 34 students qualified to move directly into elective courses, according to de- partment head Lillian Hildreth. Other Lincoln students were put in classes on the basis of their tests scores, stressing usage or regular Eng- lish fundamentals. A second test was held to see if more students could pass out of the second semester where they could move directly to the elective program. Lincoln is fortunate to be the only high school with such an English pro- gram. English electives include: Cre- ative Writing 1,11; Drama I, II ; Journ- alism I, II, III ; American Novel; Writ- ing Survey; Expository Writing I, II; Speech Survey; Individualized Read- ing; and Short Story. Castle Builders 21 Languages communicate The Foreign Language department of- fered French, Russian, Latin, and Spanish this year. Not only do the students learn to better understand the people that speak the language they are studying, but by using tapes, films, and records they also learn to read and speak each language. The culture and custom of the particular country is also studied. Each language department has a club with student offi- cers which have activities throughout the year. " The foreign Language department is convinced that every well educated person must be familiar with the language and culture of a country other than his own. If a student continues his education in college he will realize that the most com- mon degrees such as a Bachelor of Arts continue to have foreign language as a requirement, " states Erna Bevington, de- partment head. 22 0 flf Maria Creagh (above right) explains Spanish term to Gloria Bernal. Kathryn Kirkhoff (middle right) listens as Diane Baker translates. Saskia Post (above) asks a question in French.

This course is intended to provide a re- lated math experience to those students currently enrolled in the industrial arts program and other course areas. The main areas of concentration are the mathematics in electricity, carpentry, metal shop, auto shop and distributive education. The Omnicron Kappa (Math club) completed its activities for the year.

Of all the high schools Lincoln is one of the best equipped also. Curriculum in- cluded: Biology I; II, Ecology, Bot- any, Zoology I; II, Chemistry, Physiology, three different Physics courses, Electricity and Electronics.

The entire class met in the auditorium first to be presented school policies by members of the administration. At this time, they were assigned to their homerooms where they were introduced to their homeroom teachers. They then were able to roam the halls and become familiarized with the building and the location of various classes. The Journalism De- partment put out an Orientation Pamphlet which included a map of the school, and other vital in- formation. Students were invited to visit the counseling center to become acquainted with the counselors and to examine the career education materials available at the center. Hopefully a career edu- cation day or days can be planned for the school year. Advisor Earl Brott (above) speaks to sophomore class at orien- tation.

I wanted to carry ' a flag and march, To support my school and show I cared; My school which is really people, that I wanted to know and be known by. People I wish I could take in my arms and be close to. I would hug you all, crowd of people, as I stand on the yellow floor and face you, proud and shy, holding my flag tight in my cold hands. Please love me ' But you ' re stuck in your seats — distance blocking the way between us — and whether I march tonight or no — the love I need can ' t come from the crowd, but rather, from these ten, my friends, whose lives touch mine, giggles and raging, indifference and deep concern, blindly selfish and reaching out, you that I see in all of your interesting com- plexity, and you really do know and see and love and care about me.

Rainbow Chasers 53 Instrumental music broadens interests As in past years, Jazz Band and Orchestra improved their reputation with fine perform- ances, along with a new comer, the Collegium Musicum, an an- tique instrumental band that plays Renaissance and Baroque music. Jazz Band, playing jazz music from the 40 ' s to the present, attended various festivals which included competing, clinics, and listening to concerts. Studying various aspects of playing jazz was their main purpose. Along with festivals, they performed locally and at special benefits. Major Jazz Festivals in which they took part this year were the SCIB Jazz Festival, Dec. 14; UNI Jazz Festival, Jan. 24 where they scored an all time high in their rating. Highlighting the year was a second place rating at the Fre- momont Jazz Competition, Feb. 8, and the Hoover Jazz Festival March 8. Participating in large and small group concerts, the Orchestra was active this year. Under the direc- tion of Sandra Tatge, the piece orchestra worked hard, and put in many hours of practicing to improve their performances. An added dimension to this year ' s orchestra was including a wind instrument section. Harpsicord, recorder, and an- tique brass instruments were used by the Collegium Musicum to play Renaissance and Baroque music. This newly formed group, headed by Dennis Dowell, checked out music from local libraries to complete their prac- tices. The students worked to appreciate cultural music.

A total of 765 juniors bought SAT ' s and came in a close second behind sophomores just missing them by three. Over 800 were enrolled at the beginning of the ' 74- ' 75 school year. Almost all the junior students were personally involved in some school activity, ranging from sports events to debating or from music groups to full spirit in pep assemblies. Commented another junior, Mike Sedars, " In my opinion, Lincoln is the best high school in the state. " Juniors converse during halftime of a varsity football game.
