Each is separate from, but dependent upon the others. Each is influenced by the successes and failures of surrounding worlds. But most importantly, each new world is the result of the past. We, the People, of Lincoln High School, have attempted to form a more perfect union by growing both emotionally and intellectu- ally, and therefore, winning freedom. Through these critical years, we have proved that we can be successful. Our job is finished; we are now declaring independence. 5 When we entered Lincoln, ice discovered that we were in a new world. Like our country ' s founders, we de- cided to stay to work and build upon it. Through our efforts, we developed pride and spirit. For us, 1976 has been a prosperous year. We watched as our athletes strove to better their per- formances. We saw our mu- sical groups, once again, prove themselves invincible. We joined clubs and organ- izations to help make our school one of the finest in the state. It is this common pride and spirit that binds us together and allows us to work with one another. It also links us with our na- tion ' s founders. We have worked to build and perfect an institution. The long awaited year of 1976 has finally arrived. With it, comes the barrage of the grand " Bicentennial " . It was found an obvious event to capitalize upon. At Lincoln, we chose to skip over the trinkets, the songs, and the red, white, and blue, and look, instead, at the deeper significance of the bicenten- nial. We are paying a tribute to the monumental decisions, documents, and accomplish- ments made by people throughout our country ' s his- tory. We are taking this op- portunity to realize the ef- fect the past will have upon our future. r QY HBeTHje people... 9 Sophomores face new Lincoln life Orientation, August 28, brought 772 new sophomores to Lincoln. The addition of these sophomores brought Lincoln ' s total enroll- ment up to 1,989. The audi- torium was full of sophomores with bewildered faces, wondering what was going on. First, they were read the school policies, and then shown to their homerooms. Afterwards they were found ex- ploring the hallways with the aid of a map, published by the jour- nalism classes. Many seniors and juniors assisted the sophomores on the first day. Along with the new sophomores, the first day brought the opening of a new parking lot and additional rooms. 10 11 Homecoming reflects senior spirit Homecoming started the year off with a great show of school spirit. The tradi- tional Powder Puff game was played be- tween Pep Club and the Cheerleaders, Drill, Flags, and Baton teams. Pep Club won 24-6. Halftime entertainment was provided by the Flagettes, led by Co- captains Chris Kern and Dennis Living- ston. Friday morning, following long hours of hard work, the senior sign was escorted to Lincoln. Basing the sign on the bicen- tennial, the theme was " Spirit of ' 76. " The Coronation Assembly created spirit for the game to come with new skits, the annual pie throwing contest, and the crowning of the king and queen. The annual Homecoming game brought a 27-7 victory to spirited onlookers. Half- time entertainment provided by the Band, Flags, Batons, and Drill Team included the presentation of the Homecoming king and queen and their court. The Homecoming Dance brought an end to festivities on October 4. Music was provided by Antelon. Senior Sign Officers Bruce Staples, Pam Cross, Michelle Brown, Peggy Houghtaling and Sponsor Mr. Jerry Chiaramonte proudly await the transport of the sign.

Afterwards, instead of the traditional walk, King Chris Kern and Queen Liz Harbert were moved around the gym on a small platform with wheels. This was the first year for such a thing at Lincoln. The Homecoming Court consisted of king candidates Jon Stapes, Chuck Agan, Graig Brown, and Dennis Livingston. The queen candidates included Laura Blunck, Tammy Huggins, Tracy Umden- stock, and Nancy Link. The first runner- up couple in the court was Jon Stapes and Laura Blunck. Swing Choir, under the direction of Carol Stewart, performed as students, faculty, and distinguished alumni ob- served the coronation.

Pep Club attended football and basketball games bringing along their enthusiasm and school spirit. Pep Club was led by President Amy Amend, Vice-president Stephanie Wedemeir, Secretary Sherri Volz, and Treasurer Diane Steele. The club was sponsored by Mr. Van Tuyl. Pep Club organized buses to some of the out-of-town games. As a group, they provided much encouragement and enthusiasm, plus a background of school colors by sporting new gold sweatshirts during the football season. They are led, in the cheers by the cheerleaders and show their support to the athletes, as well as to the spectators. Pep Club officers this year are Sherri Volz, secretary; Diane Steele, treasurer; Amy Amend, president; Stephanie Wedemeir, vice-president.

Rowdies (above) add spirit to the Pep Club this year. 16 17 Cheerleaders focus on enthusiasm The 1975-76 Varsity Cheerleading Squads were divided in two groups of eight to support designated sports. The Football Squad cheered for varsity foot- ball, wrestling, girl ' s swimming, and girl ' s basketball. The Basketball Squad cheered for boy ' s varsity basketball, cross coun- try, and boy ' s swimming. This year two alternate cheerleaders were added to fill in for absences. The two squads purchased new uniforms to add sparkle at the sport events and at traditional pep assemblies. The majority of the girls attended a summer NCA Cheerleading Camp held at Lake Okoboji. New cheers and mod- ern pom pom routines were learned and performed at school events. Also, during the summer, the varsity and sophomore squads worked together, four days a week to practice for upcoming seasons. Money raising projects consisted of selling Lin- coln hats, bake sales, and a jewelry sale.

Second row: Linda Groves, Vicki VanCleave and Lesley Benda. 19 Spreading spirit at the sopho- more activities was the major goal of the Sophomore Cheer- leaders. The Cheerleaders were chosen from various southside junior highs, last spring. During the summer they at- tended practices and learned traditional Lincoln cheers, taught by the Varsity squad. Under the aid of captain Betty Kocppl, the girls attended wrestling meets, and football and basketball games, throughout the 75-76 school year. By cheering at these activities, they helped back their sophomore team to a successful season.

Matmaids have been busy this past year. The group consisted of seven members. They provided our wrestlers with tags before each meet. Be- fore the meet the girls passed out programs and handed out the rosters. During the meets, they provided the wrestlers with orange slices, along with keeping score and announcing. They sold key chains as a fund raising proj- ect. At the Lincoln Invitational they decorated the locker room for a change of pace. The group is led by Captain Marsh Reynolds and Co-Captain Linda Hutt; other members in- clude Seniors Nancy Smith and Kelly Kramer; Juniors Kathy Stover and Diane Maxwell; Soph- omore Chris Masiello.

IA The 1975-76 Drill Team began performances early by marching at the Shriners bowl game and parade. They also helped at the Jerry Lewis Telethon. To help raise money for the trip to Florida with the marching band, the Drill Team had many fund raising projects which in- cluded selling candles, a bake sale, and a car wash. The squad was led by co-cap- tains NorRae Merkel, and Jill Stanley. New dance steps and a Bicen- tennial touch were added to many routines during the basketball season. The girls added spirit to Lincoln by making tags, decorat- ing locker rooms, and cheering through the halls on game mor- nings.

The twirlers prac- ticed during the summer months and at 7:00 each morning to be- come well prepared for perform- ing at football and basketball halftimes, as well as in some parades. A Florida trip was well deserved after the girls raised money through candy and jewel- ry sales. Further activities included a Christmas party and Teepeeing during Homecoming at various players ' houses. Flag Twirlers practice at Hutch- ens Field for an upcoming perform- ance (right).

Baton Corps proclaim spirit The new five-member Baton Corps, under the direction of Captain Jeri Balducki, performed with the marching band. The members, Julie Poore, Sue Marshall, Rhonda Rice, and Sue Byers chose new uniforms for the 1975-76 year. The highlight of the year for members of the marching band, including the Baton Corps, was a trip to Florida in December. The girls sold candy to earn money for the trip.

Marching Band adds bicentennial flavor The Marching Band, under the direction of Dennis Dowell, went to Jacksonville, Florida this year. Approximately 115 band mem- bers, along with members of the Drill Team, Flags, and Batons played at the Gator Bowl football game on December 29. To raise money for this trip, the band sold three pound boxes of cheese, con- ducted a paper drive, and worked on the BLH drive. The band was rated number two on a standardized test for marching bands. The Marching Band, striving towards perfection, had early morning and midday practices every day. The band also traveled to Iowa City to march in the University of Iowa ' s Homecoming Parade. Piccolo player Rondelle Klimowski (above; concentrates on halftime per- formance.

Both had many performances through- out the year, which meant extra practice. Participating in various festi- vals, the Jazz Band was very ac- tive this year. They studied the different aspects of playing jazz music, and performed at speci al benefits, and listened to many other concerts. The Jazz Band was under the direction of Mr. Dennis Dowell. The Orchestra, directed by Sandra Tatge, worked hard this year. They spent many hours practicing for their performances. The group checked out music from the libraries for practice. and learned to like cultural music. Jazz Band members (first row) G. Johnson, I ' . Thurmond, J. Crouch, Mr. Dennis Dowell, J. Burns, T.

Pep assemblies ignite spirit The student body of Lincoln showed its number one spirit throughout the en- thusiasm of our pep assemblies. Excite- ment and pride were always elements. The pep assembly preceding the last foot- ball game of the season, played against Dowling, ignited much spirit throughout the gym. The enthusiasm spilled onto the floor. A large group of students par- ticipated in expressing so much spirit, that they were late returning to their classes. At most of our pep assemblies we ex- pressed our excitement through a " Min- ute of Madness, " a carry over from last year, everyone simply goes " bananas. " At the Christmas assembly, put on by the Creative Writing Class, carols were sung, poems were read and Santa Claus was brought to life. The Concert Choir helped out with the singing of carols. At each of the assemblies, recognition was given to all of the minor sports. Members of these sports expressed the importance of spectators, in hopes of drawing a larger crowd. (Left) The junior class proudly shouts their " battle cry. " (below) Drill Team Captains NorRae Merkel and Jill Stanley are presented an award by the Shriners.

Keeping with the " Spirit of ' 76, " the Mimes based their show on a bicentennial theme. Under the direction of Miss Carol Harms and student directors Jon Zarley and Nate Runkel, the Mimes performed to a full house both nights. The publicity involved in the show, including many posters and promotions, encouraged the good turnout. The mimists also gave per- formances at grade level, promotional assemblies and at many southside junior highs. 0 Jack Fulliam and Jeff Gabler (above) take their positions for the black light mime, " Freedom.

Directed by Carol Harms and student di- rector Nate Runkel, the play was the high point of the year for the drama students involved. The ten member cast worked hard preparing for the comedy. Taking place in England in the 1800 ' s, the play was a comedy situation involving the substitu- tion of a young college man, well disguised, for a matronly lady chaperone, Charley ' s aunt. The play brought laughter to the crowd both nights, and proved to be very successful. Much of the drama department was involved in the production of the play.

M 35 Swing Choir proves invincible The Swing Choir, under the direction of Mrs. Carol Stewart, held up their three- year winning tradition this year. Winning first place in both the Cedar Rapids Ken- nedy competition, and the Mid-America Jazz festival in Omaha, completed three years of undefeated competition. In addition to competition the Swing Choir also gave many special " gigs, " the most honored of these being a show given for the Governor of Iowa and Japanese Governors. Another fun day saw the choir entertaining the Vietnamese Refu- gees for their first Christmas party in Iowa. The Choir also held two programs in November and April. To prepare for all of these activities the choir practiced every morning between 7 and 7:30 a.m. Under the leadership of President Russ Morris and Vice President Nate Runkel, the group had a very successful, fun-filled year.

With the enlarge- ment of the choir to 130, more compli- cated, double choir music was accom- plished. The choir was split into two groups meeting first and second hours. Sporting new custom-made gold robes, the choir performed three major concerts throughout the year. Plans for a spring choir tour began early in the year along with fund raising projects to finance the tour. Some of these projects included BLH, a paper drive, a leaf rake, popcorn and sock sales, jewelry sales, and a mixer. The Concert Choir was also involved in the making of a bicentennial album. Chosen as one of three choirs from Iowa, the choir taped a record including many favorite American songs. Many hours of hard work went into the album taped on March 22. First row: M. Albright, M.

" Prep Choir put on three major concerts, assisted Concert Choir in the recording of their album, competed in the State-Large Group contest, and participated in the All-City Festival. The group rehearses in two sections. One section rehearses on Mondays and Wednesdays, while the other group rehearses on Tuesdays and Thursday. Four members auditioned for and made the All-State Choir, one of the highest honors be- stowed on high school students. Prep Choir practicing on the day before, giving a performance.

This group consists of 30 members, the majority being sophomores, and a band of five. The group was organized be- cause there were too many tal- ented students for one group. Open auditions took place in the fall for all choir members from Prep, Concert, and Girls Glee. In their new matching light blue outfits they have performed at conventions, school concerts, and participated in competition at Midland Jazz Festival in Fre- mont, Nebraska.

After considerable deliberation, the final theme for the ' 76 yea r- book emerged as " Discovering a New World. " Its originator An- gie Klier states, " I feel honored that my theme was selected. It makes me feel that I have made a large contribution to my class. " Senior Scott Parks once again created the cover design, surpass- ing even last year ' s cover. Some of the students attended summer workshops at Ames. They learned the fundamentals of yearbook layout design, copy- writing, and basic graphics. Beginning in September work- ing through April hundreds of pictures were studied and printed by the photographers. Correct spelling of names was checked and double checked again and again. Brainstorming for head- lines and information for copy proved a good way to get fresh ideas. Yearbook staff (above) crowds around to look at some new ideas brought in by Michelle Brown.

High- lighted by an all-school ski trip to Colorado, the council year also was responsible for a Student Council homeroom and improved conditions in the parking area. Forty students traveled to Key- stone, Colorado, along with Spon- sor Judy Griffin, for a week of skiing and snow fun. Student Council homeroom meetings were initiated, thus in- creasing participation. The parking situation was re- lieved in the new parking lot by putting up signs to prevent illegal parking. This cleared up the con- gestion of cars and made it safer for students walking from the parking lot to school. Lincoln students dominated Inter-city by having three offi- cers, Jon Zarley, Vice-president, Julie Connor, Secretary, and Bruce Staples, Treasurer. Student Council officers Kevin Ketzler, Chief Justice, Jii Angle Klier, Secretary, Julie Connors, Vice-president, and Brown, Treasurer. 1 Crumb, President, not pictured Peter Student Council members (left and above) listen attentively a one of the meetings.

Over- seeing many of the year ' s changes were Mr. Melvin Bowen, Princi- pal, Mr. Robert Wilson, Mr. Earl Brott, and Mr. James Fitzsim- mons. The building of new additions and the painting of the rooms caused only mild interruptions this year. The administration managed to overcome these handicaps to keep Lincoln run- ning smoothly. " I have appreci- ated the co-operation from the craftsmen and they have worked closely with the administration in the performance of their duties, " commented Mr. Bowen. Mr. Robert Wilson, acting as Vice-Principal and Senior Ad- visor, concerned himself with the activities of the graduating class. Mr. Earl Brott devoted himself to advising the juniors.

This will be a Multi-Media career center. The primary function of the C.I.C. is to pro- vide a centralized facility for a variety of current career, occupational, and per- sonal development material which will serve as resources for students and staff members. " The counseling door is open to you. We can ' t tell you what to do, but we can guide you to information so you can decide for yourself. We can ' t give you course credit, but we can help you select courses that may be more suited to your objectives. We want you to become the person you want to be, " commented Miss Alice Anderson, as she described the pri- mary objective of the counselors.

Charlene Bjork answers phone in the counselors office as Alice Bowling, nurse, starts everyday with a smile. Many staff workers with a great variety of duties are needed to keep the school running smoothly and efficiently. The responsibility of our Cafeteria Ladies was to prepare and serve the stu- dents and teachers grade A lunches. The ladies begin preparing the noon lunches at 8:00 each morning. They remain at work until 3:00 each afternoon cleaning up after serving 2300 meals a day. Our Custodial Staff help to keep our school clean and attractive. These peo- ple have been especially busy because of the construction work and painting being done around the school. Our nurse, Mrs. Bowling, starts her day bright and early with a rush of stu- dents that will be leaving classes for appointments during the day. Helping the students with problems, both physical and emotional, giving first aid, getting emergency cases to the doctor, and recog- nizing contagious diseases are part of her daily tasks. Mrs. Ada Mae (Chappie) Fehrs, book- keeper, starts selling school supplies and making change for students. She keeps accounts and fines on books, chairs, and other items belonging to the school. She makes change five times a day for Stu- dent Center, writes checks out for school expenses and keeps books for a number of clubs. She also keeps books for ad- mission to all athletic events.

New equipment is pro- vided for taping, for viewing filmstrips, and for listening to records. The Library ' s book col- lection grew bigger and better, making a total of 17,980 books, 1 10 current magazines and thou- sands of back issues for reading and research. " Our aim is to provide ma- terials and aid for students while they arc at Lincoln and to help equip them to enter an ever- changing world, " commented Miss Lillian Cole and Miss Helen Holt, librarians.

Maria Creagh reads over students ' Spanish work. The foreign language depart- ment offers four years ' study of Spanish and French, and three years ' study of Latin and Rus- sian. Students receive training in speaking, understanding, reading, and writing the language of their choice. At the same time they are gaining tolerance and an un- derstanding of a culture other than their own. English grammar is clarified as the student relates it to the structure of the second language, and the student ' s English vocab- ulary is increased as he learns the words of another country. In the first two years of study, the fundamentals of the language are stressed. After that, the stu- dents go into more depth, reading some great literature, studying civilization and even writing skits to perform in class. Activities are varied and interesting. " Many disciplines needed for success in the business world are learned and practiced in foreign language classes: attention to de- tail, productivity on a day-to-day basis, application of general and specific rules, individual respon- sibility, retention of much mate- rial, and respect for that which is new and different, " according to Erna Bevington, department head. Foreign Language Department (left) Kath- ryn Kirkhoff, Erna Bevington, and Maria Creagh. Kathryn Kirkoff (above) discusses Latin cultures with class. 81 English offers many elective choices Students are offered twenty options which cover a wide spectrum. The courses include those to improve a stu- dent ' s writing skills; courses that help him improve his reading speed, compre- hension, and ability to analyze; also courses which stress oral activities. Tenth grade students take a basic English course that emphasizes fundamental skills and introduces the electives that are available to the juniors and seniors. Some courses are definitely college preparatory in na- ture, while others are helpful for students who plan to enter the job market immedi- ately upon graduation. At any rate, there are English courses to meet every need, every interest, and every type of prepara- tion that a student might want. The English program challenges pupils with its diversity of offerings.

The courses are designed to develop vocational skills that will be of use in making career decisions. Woodworking offered begin- ning and advanced courses. The auto shop course taught mainte- nance and repair of cars. Weld- ing shop safety and the use of hand tools were stressed in metal shop. Drafting classes concen- trated on the basic procedures of mechanical drawing. " In woodworking we try to develop knowledge, skills, and attitudes relating to opportunities in the woodworking industry, " said Mr. Wren, Wood Shop.

The music department is composed of the band and vocal music depart- ment, with both of these areas involving various areas of special- ization. The band. Swing Choir, Concert Choir give many per- formances at junior highs in the Lincoln area, including winter and spring concerts. Art department provides many electives for varying degrees of talent. Beginners may take art Fundamentals 1 and advance to Drawing and Painting 3 or Crafts 3. Advanced Students go into the Dorian Art Club, which decorates the halls at Christmas and other special holidays. Artists entered the Scholastic Art Contest for the first time in ten years, and Music Department: Carol Stewart, Dennis Dowell, Richard Haber, and Sandra Tatge. brought back 10 Gold Key awards. 85 Experimenting yields right answer The science department offers a large variety of courses, the best facilities in the city, and the greatest number of teach- ers to interested students. The most pop- ular subjects are Biology, Ecology, Zoo- logy, Conservation, Botany, and Physics. The popularity of these classes tend to show more interest in our environment. Study in such courses often goes beyond the classroom through field trips. For the college bound student, the science department offers Chemistry, Physiology, three types of Physics courses, Electricity, and Electronics. These are intended to give the student a firm foundation in the science field. Next year a new class will be added to the already large science electives, Electronics 2 which will deal with transistor and inte- grated circuits. Mr. Alan Ewers, head of science de- partment, commented that, " every stu- dent should be enrolled in a science class during his stay at Lincoln. " He also added, " We are very happy to see as many as possible enrolled in science classes every year.

Sophomores were re- quired to take Geography in an Urban Age or United States His- tory, while seniors were required to take classes in Government and Economics. Other classes offered in the social science department were as follows: World History, Psychol- ogy, Russian History, Interna- tional Religion, Anthropology, Sociology, Afro-American His- tory, Revolution, Social Reform, Twentieth Century Europe, Asian Studies, Emerging Nations of the World, and Latin American Studies. Psychology and Sociology classes conducted various surveys which expressed the views of many students.

The department fol- lowed the same general format as in previous years. Courses offered include Typing, Data Processing, Business Arithmetic, Business Law, Shorthand, and Accounting. The skills attained by the stu- dents enrolled in these courses aid them in securing positions in business and industry. The knowl- edge obtained in these areas may determine whether the student goes to college or directly into the business world. The depart- ment provides students with ca- reer ideas and often several per- manent job placements. Two programs offered by the department are Distributive Edu- cation (DECA) and Executive Internship. DECA places the student in a job. The student is released early and earns credit while he works. In the Executive Internship Program, the student is gone all day and also earns credit while learning. Both pro- grams provide practical business experience.

A large field of math classes is offered to Lincoln students; they may choose Gen- eral Math, Algebra I, Geometry, Algebra II, College Math, or Calculus. Students again had the opportunity to complete their studies in a math lab rather than in a conventional classroom situa- tion. Students enrolled in math lab had the chance to work at their own rate. During the year, math students had an opportunity to go to the computer center. Omnicron Kappa (math club) com- pleted its activities for the year.

Knowledge of the car, percep- tive and defensive driving are being stressed in this year ' s driv- ers ' education classes. Successful completion of this course not only instills a sense of confidence in the new driver, but also enables the 16-ycar-old to obtain his driver ' s license and in some instances, means a consid- erable reduction in insurance premiums. This year ' s classes were taught by Ronald Baeth, Robert Case, Floyd Constant, Larry Hayes, Robert Leonard, Scott McAdam, and L R. Wildman. Larry Hayes (above) explains to class the different instruments used on the simu- lators. Driven Education Department (left to right) Robert Case, Larry Hayes.

Skills necessary for living healthfully and happily on a moderate income are being stressed in this year ' s home eco- nomics classes. The home economics classes are happy to see more boys in- terested in cooking and " child development " . Currently there are no boys enrolled in sewing. The young men and women of today are more realistic than those in past years. They realize that sometime in the future they must be able to prepare a nutri- tious meal instead of depending on the old faithful TV dinner. Other courses offered in this department include Home Fur- nishings and Clothing and Tex- tiles, which are taught by Mrs. Phillis Garnant, Ann Borgen, Janice Roxberg, and Patrica Schartz.

Co-ed gym was designed to allow young men and women of today to work together to achieve a common goal. The individual sports program for the girls consisted of tennis, golf, archery, and gymnastics. The boys ' regular program consisted of basketball, softball, football, swimming, and track. As in past years, extra-curricular activities were available for all.

Students search for better understanding The Work Study Program is a program for students who have a learning problem. As sophomores, they spend the whole day in a classroom situation. During their junior and senior years, they spend the morning in classes and during the after- noon they are at a training center or on a job. During the three years, the students receive all the required courses. During the year they have gone on field trips to various places. A few of these outings included a trip to the Freedom Train and an exhibit of the metric system at North High School. Afterwards they came back to the classroom and measured everything in it. Each student then drew up a floor plan for his room; they picked the best plan and rearranged the room accordingly. Barbara Shepherd helps Sophomore Mark Scigliano (left) on history report.

Jerry Ellston and Bob Umdenstock led the team in hitting with averages of .368 and .363 respectively. Jerry Ellston headed the pitching staff with a record of five wins and four losses. Commenting on the season, first year coach Dennis Deardon said, " If I had to sum up the team ' s achievements in two words they would be hustle and determination. Because of their unwill- ingness to give up they were able to come from behind in late innings to win several ball games. I had a lot of fine ball players this year and I think many of them will help the Varsity club this coming summer. This squad showed a lot of pride throughout the season; some- thing that has been a foundation for Lin- coln athletics for many years.

Girls JV Softball finished a winning season with a record of 1 1 wins, four losses and two ties. Well-balanced performances by many of the players contributed to the success of the team. " The team showed good fielding and hitting but the greatest asset was their determination and effort, " commented Coach Atkinson. The Coach is ex- pecting a fine season in 1976 because of the number of outstanding players returning, plus the addition of some fine junior high girls. 107 Swimmers complete successful year The girls varsity swimming team closed out a very successful year with an 8-4 overall record and broke ten varsity swimming records.

Coach Cecil Rhoads considered this year to be a rebuilding season since only six lettermen returned from last year ' s team. The team started the season by stun- ning eighth rated Marshalltown, 14-12. This was a definite indication of the good year ahead. Lincoln was able to pile up five consecutive victories before a loss. Their victims included Hoover, 12-7, North, 26-14, Tech, 35-22, and a Home- coming victory over East 27-7. The two losses came at the hands of Metro cham- pions Dowling and to a fired up Valley.

There seems to be no end to the terrible things that await you. Relief flows through you as you spot the door that bears the number on your paper. Once inside the room your tension subsides knowing that you are in the right room and out of the halls. To many, this was the first day of school, as 800 sophomores searched the halls looking for their rooms. The ner- vousness passed and sophomores became part of Lincoln. They showed their en- thusiasm by being first in the SAT sales with 56.8%. Sophomores spirit grows from September to March, as they pain more confidence.

On May 23, the class of 76 declared their independence. Headed by Advisor Robert Wilson and Class President Jon Zarley the seniors sponsored an array of activities which began with Senior Sign. The theme, " The Spirit of 76 " was originated by Nancy Link and Laura Blunck. Seniors worked long and hard on the sign which was brought to Lincoln at 5 a.m. Homecoming morning. Preparing for graduation, using the theme " The End is the beginning, " the seniors gathered in the Green Room on May 6 at the Hilton Inn for their Senior Banquet. The group Red Pony performed at the Prom which was held at the Riviera Ballroom on May 5. On May 21, Class Day was held in the boys gym be- fore the entire student body, parents, and guests. Commencement, which was the climax of the year, was May 23 at Vets Auditorium. 179 Kim Abbott Pom Adams Danny Adamson Chuck Agan Earl Agan Jo Ellen Akkerman Emi Albright Matt Allen Mary Ann Aller Rose Amodeo Terri Anderson Kay Andrews Richard Andrus Laurie Arendt Ray Armel Kathryn Ashbaugh Steven Ashbaugh Marge Backstrom Mike Backstrom Linda Bainter Diane Baker Jeff Ball Jeff Barrett Bill Barth Cris Bason Judy Belken Carole Bell Jim Bell Nanci Bennett Scott Bittick Jack Blackford Laura Blunck Bonnie Bobzien Rene Bonjour David Booker Rhonda Borchert Oebbi Boudewyn Wade Brantley Pam Brauer Tracey Brauer Randy Bredehof Adrian Briggs Mark Brightman Cindy Brokens Carla Brown Doug Brown Graig Brown Marcia Brown Michelle Brown Les Bruner Rod Bullard JoEllen Bunn Doyle Bunting Laura Jean Burks Jerry Burns Teresa Burriola Doug Burt Mary M.

Morris Arlene Young Linda Groves Russell Morris Darlene Young Roger Hart Cynthia Nevins Teresa Heathcote Sheryl Olson FAREWELL Dear Abe, There is more to you than what meets the eye. You are an institution, a feeling, a hope. Within your walls, you hold many memories. You ' ve seen success and failure. You ' ve witnessed disappointment and shared dreams. You ' ve felt the sting of hate and the triumph of love. You have experienced death and conquered life. Now, after many years, here am at your threshold, on my way out, on my way in; into a world which can become only what I make of it. I will carry through life all that you have taught me; the knowledge of your institution, the feelings of loyalty and of determination and hope. The hope that will guide me through the dark woods and over rocky roads. These things I will keep with me, but probably take for granted, until someday, when my children ' s children drag out this brittle, yellowed yearbook, and I am explaining why we wore our hair that way, I will remember, just for a moment, and thank you, to myself, for all that you ' ve given me.
