HAROLD GORDON Head of department of Physical Education and Basketball Coach we dedicate this ANNUAL as a mark of our appreciation of his leadership in athletics and' his influence in developing a spirit of true sportsmanship in the school. 1934 page two THE LINCOLN ANNUAL 3 Our School W WW Abraham Lincoln Junior High School Z g4 6 fio 3 fax 1934 e page three THE LINCOLN ANNUAL l g Our School We have many reasons for our pride in our school. In the flrst place, we feel that all have unusual opportunities for an education here. We have a large, excellent faculty, a beautiful and modern building with classrooms, laboratories, and gymnasiums of a kind to inspire good work and with equip- ment needed for us, But our school is not only a place for education, as we usually understand the word education; it is also a place where we may learn to develop the traits that are needed for successful living. If we are to have a successful school life, we must be loyal, courteous, dependable, and friendly. We feel that all Of these traits are found among the pupils in this school. Whatever the enterprise undertaken by the school, the pupils co-Operate re- markably well. It may be the sale of Christmas seals; it may be the backing of our athletic teams; it may be a move to improve the order in the corridors. Whatever it is, we co-operate. We have many organizations in which we may use our talents and exercis 1r spirit of helpfulness. Possibly the publication of this Annual illustrates, a's'much as anything can, the unusual co-Operation found in the school. While it is the work of the Nine A classes, every class aided in making it possible. It is a friendly school. It does not take long for the stranger to feel at home and to share with us Our feeling of love and loyalty for our beautiful school. PHYLLIS REHN. W The Annual Wee feel that the Annual has a great value to all in the school. Perhaps its greatest value is for the class that is leaving the school. For it is the last Lincoln Annual in which they will have a part. It forms a valuable keep-sake, one to be treasured and enjoyed for many years to come. The book is a record of the day by day activities of the school. In it are pictured all the teachers and pupils of the school, as well as pictures of activities of the school. There are pictures of various entertainments, 0f assemblies, of athletic events, of parties, and of groups around the school. The book contains a calendar of the year's activities, a record of some of our fun and good times, and some of the commendable literary efforts of the pupils. The cover design, as well as the drawings for the division pages, is the work of art class pupils. The book is written, edited, and produced by the two Nine A classes of the year. We hope you will all enjoy it. DICK WOLFLEY. 1934 page four THE LINCOLN ANNUAL Faculty Row 1: Mr. Hanna, Mr. Elmquist, Mr. Kcltncr, Mr. Lofdahl, Mr. Clow, Mr. Fowler, Mr. Johnson, Mr. Schade.

Here six home room groups were formed and the chil- dren began their career at Lincoln. Several confusing things happened, such as when the timid little 7Bls tried to ride the elevator, or when we went to the third floor for the gym. But after a few weeks we began to become more accustomed to our surroundings. June soon came when we left school feeling. rather proud that next semester we would be 7AIs. As 7A,s we felt most important because we could look down on the 713,5. In 7A we chose our clubs and began our study of general selence. Our sev- enth grade parties were held in the gym. In eighth grade we chose our electives. Our 813 party was held in the, auditorium. When we became 8Als, parties were discontinued. When we became 9B's, nine new pupils, together with a few pupils from the other home rooms, formed our 913-75. In this grade we had our first finals, which proved to be less difficult than we had expected. There was a meeting for only the 9A's called in the Lincoln Cafeteria one day during home room. Nobody knew why, but they had ideas of their own. We were assembled in the cafeteria, and Miss Bowman announced we were to elect our class adviser. Miss Burchfield was elected. A few days later we voted for our class officers. The following were elected: Charles Hoar, presi- dent; Ruth Nelson, vice-president; Helen Metz, secretary; Stuart Nelson, treasurer. The next thing for the 9Als was the 9A class play, Little Miss 'llaji'crs. When Miss Cotta called a meeting for try-outs, there were about a hundred present. When the cast wasannounced, there were some happy and some sad faces. There were some three or four long weeks of practice for the people in the cast. Then came the fatal afternoon and evening, but the long weeks of practice were worth the while because it was a huge success. While the play practicing was going on, the 9A class party and assembly were being taken care of by Miss Peterson and Miss Hall. The party was in the form of the nCentury of Progress? Jeanette Turnquist was chosen from all the 9A classes to be queen at the party. They served refreshments and had the "Grand March." Several pupils gave a program which was called the Hfloor show? The class assembly was in charge of Miss Hall. The 9B's were in- vited. The class prophecy and will were given. Ruth Nelson, vice-president, presented the axe to Charlotte Harvey of the 9B class. The pupils of the 9A class formed a circle around the seats of the auditorium and sang their claSs song, thus ending the program of the 9A class. In 9A thirty-three enthusias- tic pupils began work on the Annual stall, with Dick Wolfley, as etlitor-in-ehief, and Phyllis Rehn as associate editor. Many active members have taken part in various activities. Dorothy VVallin has proved to be a very efficient president of the Student Council. Gilbert Mork has been a helpful handy-man. Lowell Hanson has served as president and Doris Mae Gustafson as concert-master of the orchestra. Many of our members have been active in band work. Various students have taken part in interesting assemblies. The White Knights to which Roy Anderson, Bob Greenberg, Bill Engberg, Bob Chris- tianson, and Bill Peterson belong, have entertained us several times. Genevieve Berzin, Jean Cullen, Richard Johnson, and Kenneth Lowe have done much to make our school paper an interesting one. Some of our noted athletes have been Louis Coletta, Arthur Donofrio, and Charles Hoar. '1934 page sixteen 1; V ,f: . ; , . 02,07 ,A 4..' , A.

The Class was divided into eight groups with a total enrollment of three hundred. Two more groups were added in the fall of. 1933, so that now there are ten groups with a total enrollment of three hundred and seventy. In the seventh grade we endured such ridiculous experiences as being called ltfreshie," failing to be able to open padloeks, and getting lost just as all other seventh graders have endured and will endure. We were quite over- whelmed by the size of the school and the unusual activities. At the end of this year, we received our first Annuals and had one Of our first big thrills. After being promoted into the eighth grade, we felt a little bigger and carried on our work in a satisfactory manner. Some of us even learned to swim. And now we are ninth graders. XNe have all grown upHexeept Clayton Anderson, who will never grow up. We make up the members of the Ammal staff, give a class play, give an assembly, enjoy a party, and in general act as the superiors 0f the school should act. We look over the three years at Lincoln as being well spent, and as days which we shall never forget. The following groups compose this unusual class: Up on the third floor the 9A-1 class has headquarters in room 302. Miss Laura Larson has been the home room teacher ever since this class entered the school. When they came in 1931, there were thirty-two in the group; now there are thirty-eight. Included 'in this group are several "A" pupils. Evelyn Johnson of the class is the school's champion speller. Charlotte Harvey is the president of the Student Council. Several pupils are in the class play, and on the staffs of the Annual and Lincoln, Lag. To End the 9A-2's we must go to the hrst floor. Here in room 118 they can he found. When they were 7B's, Miss Thelma Larson was their teacher. When Miss Larson became Mrs. Swenson, they became. the pride and joy of Miss Needham. This class is well represented in the band, the orchestra, the class play, and the Ammal and Lincoln Log staffs. People have often been struck by the delicious Odors that seem to come from room 307. But the 9A-3 class has not been doing the cooking and bak- ing; they are in there only for their home room. In 1931, there were thirty- one memberseor freshiesein this class. Now there are thirty-seven. In 1932, they left their home room teacher, Mrs. VVestring. and for a while had Mr. Fowler for their home room teacher. However, they liked the atmos- phere of the kitchen tand their ever present hope of a tea partyO better than the surroundings of a shop, so at the beginning of their ninth grade they returned to Mrs. Westring and to their old room. The class contains several notable people. Robert Tucker was seventh grade Student Council secretary and treasurer. Several members of the Class have made names for them- selves in athletics. The 9A-4,s have had three home room teachers. As 7Bls they had Miss Davis. After Miss Davisl marriage, Miss Crandall came to take care of them. In the eighth grade they were given to Mr. Middleton. Now they are back with Miss Crandall. The class has many notable members. Robert Johnson had a 1934 page twcuty-four THE LINCOLN ANNUAL leading part in the Operetta; John Anderson is Vice-president of the 9A class; Bengt Johnson and John Anderson are champion horn tooters; several mem- bers of the class are in the 9A play and on the staff of the Ammal. . The 9A-5 class and their home room teacher, Miss Petritz, really began Llncoln at the same time. Miss Petritz had substituted during the year be fore, but this was her first t1regularii class. They have been happy together in room 209. As 7Bis there were thirty-two in the class; now there are thirtys seven. Among the outstanding members of the Class are Marguerite Skog-- lund, the leader in scholarship, Diana Pieri, a leader in sports, Frank Janik, a singer of cowboy ballads, and Anna Marie Anderson, a candidate for class treasurer. Thirty two Ktfreshiesi composed the 713-6 class in the fall of 1931. Some people say they have been fresh ever since. Mrs. Brown, until 1934, Miss Todson, has been their home room teacher. This class has a number of un- usual people in it. Fred Hoegberg, the president of the 9A class, is one of the real leaders of the school. He has been on the honor roll a number of times, has appeared in many plays, and is a member of the Annual staff. Robert Arnold, the secretary of the class, is a favorite with every one. Pearl Lillyquist, the Matilda in the Class play, is the editor of The Bit-o-Scicncc, the paper published by the general science department. Pearl has missed the honor roll only a few times; altogether, she is a girl whom everyone likes and honors. The 9A-7is have gone through Lincoln without having to haye 'a change of home room teachers. They are fortunate in having Miss Peters as their teacher. The class has been one that has done good work and made an excel- lent name for itself. Among the members is Arthur Corbett, the treasurer of the 9A class. The members are represented on the Annual stat? and with other school activities. Some little ttfreshiesfi thirty9two in number, were introduced to Miss Hickey, their home room teacher, in the fall of 1931. These freshies have grown and grown and worked until they have accomplished a great deal. Several in the class have been identified with various school activities. Iline VVallberg has a part in the 9A play, Frances Rafferty and Faye Davis are tireless workers on the Annual, while others are represented in other organ- izations. The pupils of the 9A-9 class have not enjoyed the activities of Lincoln so long as the first eight groups. They arrived here in September of 1933 from various schools lying near Rockford. Since they entered Lincoln, they have had Mrs. Angus for their home room teacher and 318 as their home room. They soon found places for themselves in the various activities of the school and have contributed much to the welfare of the school. They are repre- sented on the Animal staff. Like the 9A-9is, the 9A-10's came to Lincoln in 1933. For their year here they have had room 102 for their home and Miss Burr for their home room teacher. They, also, quickly found a place for themselves in the school and quickly became among the most loyal of Lincoln citizens. They are repre- sented on the Annual staff and in the 9A play. We hope they have benefitted by their year at Lincoln. and we are sure Lincoln has benefltted by having them here. 1934 page twcnty-jive THE LINCOLN ANNUAL 9B-1 Row 1?

Something to Boast About Many of the members of our school have made enviable records for them- selves this year. we are pleased to honor them. I. The Honor Roll picture is of those who were 011 the Honor Roll every grade period as well as 011 the Semester Honor Roll of the first semester. Since the Annual goes to press before the semester records are made, it is obvious that there can be no picture of those achieving this distinction the second semester. II. Raymond Carlen, 0f the first semester 9A-5 class, has the record of three years on the Honor Roll. III. Spelling. A spelling contest was conducted by the Student Council. Champions were selected from each home room group. These champions met in assemblies for elimination contests. The champion of each class met to determine the champion for the school. This champion is Evelyn Johnson, 9A-1. IV. Essay Winners. An essay contest was conducted by the Auxiliary 0f the American Legion. This contest was limited to members of the eighth grade. The following were the successful writers in Lincoln: Jane Nelson, 8A-1; Phyllis Peterson, 8B-1; Robert Nolting, 8A-6; and Clifford Dahlstedt, 8B-5. V. Annual. Lyle Rees has the honor of being the first person to sub- scribe to this year,s Ammal. 1934 iiage fifty-one THE LINCOLN ANNUAL VI. Flag Attendants. To Raymond Pearson and Robert Snygg is en- trusted the duty Of raising and lowering the flag in front of the building each day. They do it well. VII. Broadcasting: As part of the Know Your Schools series of broad- casts over WROK, some of our departments presented the work of the junior high school. For the department of mathematics the following broadcast: Fred Hoegberg, Margaret Scherff, Margaret Taylor, Norris Norbeck, Lee Brink, Ralph Hanson, Phillip Marcellus, Roland Johnson, Jeannette Smith, Stewart Johnson, Edward Borg. For the department of English the following broadcast a play written by Virginia Lodin: Barbara Gumbrell, Anna Anderson, and Norma Larson. VIII. Band. A district band tournament was held in Freeport on the fifth and sixth of April. Lincoln won three honors at this tournament. Bengt Johnson won first place as a trombone soloist; John Anderson, second place; and Eric Lofgren, first place in comet solo. On the twelfth of May, Bengt won a place in third division in the senior division of the state band contest held in Champaign, while Eric won a place in first division of the junior divi- sion at the contest held in Springheld. IX. Library: Miss Seal, our librarian, has three faithful assistants in the issuing of books and the taking care of the library. These girls are Marion Wetterstrom, Carolyn Lindblom, and Phyllis Johnson. Autographs 1934 Page fifty-Iwo ORGANIZATIONS THE LINCOLN ANNUAL Organizations at Lincoln Every pupil at Lincoln belongs to one or more organizations in addition to his regular class work. These organizations vary widely in purpose and procedure. Most of the groups meet each Friday at two olclock. Each is organized with officers whose duty it is to see that the club fulfills its purpose. The organizations may be divided into the following groups: those that serve others, those that bring together people of similar skills or interests, and those that develop artistic or mechanical abilities. Of course, many of these organ- izations could be Classifled as belonging to more than one of these groups. The Student Council, under the direction of Miss Bowman, is a Vital part of the school. Each home room elects a member to represent it on the Coun- 'cil. Meetings are held bi-monthly, in the Auditorium. Officers are elected as follows: the president from the ninth grade, the vice president from the eighth grade, and the secretary and treasurer from the seventh grade. Members have charge of the mLost and Foundll department and serve as monitors in the cor- ridors and the auditorium. This year the Council has been working on the Citi- zenship Code which the home rooms will adopt as the llLincoln Citizenship Code? With funds derived from a candy sale, the Council pictures were paid for, and new arm bands were purchased. The officers for the year were as follows: First Semester-mDorothy Wallin, president; Barbara Anderson, Vice president; Janet Fagerstrom, secretary and treasurer. Second Semes- tereCharlotte Harvey, president; Lillian Lundberg, Vice president; and Ruth Johnson, secretary and treasurer. The Traffic Club, a large organization of'boys, maintains order in the halls during the lunch hour and at certain other times. During their Club period they conduct trials for those people who have been accused of some offense. Woe to the poor candy eater who is proved guilty of eating in the corridor or the auditorium. His punishment is an appropriate number of zero hours spent after school. The Girl Reserve and the Junior Hospital Corps are groups of girls in- terested in serving the needs of others. The Boy Scouts, as the name implies. is a group of boys interested in helping others and being good scontsh in all ways. From their number are selected the boys who day after day raise and lower the flag in front of the building. The Hi-Y Club, the most recently organized club in the school, is under the leadership of Mr. Lofdahl. While it is a small group, it is a most enthusiastic one. The Home Nursing and First Aid Club is organized by girls who are especially interested in taking care of others. We wonder how many nurses of the future are receiving their inspira- tion from this club work. Among the clubs of special interests are the Magazine, the Story Hour, the Type-Writing, the Aeroplane, the Debating, the French, the Geography, and the Science Clubs. There are various needlework groupsathe Handi- craft, the Needlecraft, and the Quilting Clubs. The Art Metal, the Cabinet, the Drafting, and the Machine Clubs are for the boys whose interests are chiefly mechanical. The Library Club attracts many who are especially fond of books and reailing,while the Boys and Girls Athletic and the Boys and Girls Swimming Clubs have a very large enrollment. The different musical organizations are very active in school. We have a large band, a large orchestra, a Girls, Operetta Club, 21 Girls Glee and a Boysl Glee Club. Two Dramatics Clubs furnish opportunities for expression for those with histrionic ability or ambition. The Art Service Club, which sup- plies many of our better posters around the school, the Crayon Club, and the Plaque Club are for those of artistic interest in these fields. The Lincoln Log Club, the Annual Club, and the Bit-O-Science Club are concerned with three of the publications of the school. In addition to these, Opportunity Clubs in all departments are organized in which pupils who, for one reason or another, need additional help in their work, may obtain it. 1934 Page fifty-four THE LINCOLN ANNUAL Student Counci1 First Semester Row 1: Carl Grip, Robert Nolting, Raymond LaForge, Robert Oppegard, Sterling Murphy, Einar Holm- ertz, Robert Carlson, Eric Lofgren, Joseph Cohn, Arthur Foeste, John Larson.

The Band We are very proud of our band. Under the leadership of Mr. Elmquist, daily practice; are held. It has become one of the vital forces in our school. During the year it has made several appearances in public, playing at the Seventh Street Festival, at luncheon clubs, and, in the Know Your Schools series of broadcasts, over the radio. On the fifth and sixth of April, it partici- pated in the sectional band meet held at Freeport. They made such an excele lent showing at this meet that they had an opportunity to compete at the state meet. At the sectional meet Bengt Johnson won first place in trombone 5010 class, and John Anderson won second place. Eric Lofgren won hrst place in comet solo. At the state meet Bengt Johnson placed in third division of the senior band contest with his trombone solo. Eric Lofgren placed in flrst division of the junior hand contest with his comet solo. 1934 page jifty-six THE LINCOLN ANNUAL The Orchestra m 7 ipley, Mr. Bornor, Allison Grnuert, LeRoy Roland, Derving Peterson, Duaine Standing: Richard Lawson.

There are two groups, the beginners and the advanced. The advanced, or concert orchestra, has appeared in public several times this year, each time gaining new laurels. Its appearance at the Mendelssohn Club was greeted with acclaim, which the school could understand when they heard the delightful concert given in assembly. We are proud of our orchestra, and we expect much from it in the future. 1934 page fifty-swm THE LINCOLN ANNUAL Girlst Operetta Club Row 1: Bernida Pearson, Grace Sagnna, Betty .Smith, Barbara Revell, Helen Faust, Doris Johnson, Betty Odegard, Florence Anderson, V1rg1uia Magnuson, Marie Laspese, Eva Lindquist.

They n t w important public. appearances during the year. Before Christmas they gm a beautiful Candle Light Service, which many people of the community heard and greatly enjoyed. In April the great achievement of the year, the Operetta, Tulip Time, was presented. The afternoon performance was given by one cast; the evening, by another. Both were excellent. A third performance for the benefit of the Annual was given a week after the first ones were given. This years produc- tion was one long to be remembered. Besides these appearances, these groups have entertained on several other occasions. They have given assembly programs, they sang Christmas carols to the school, and they sang over the radio. Altogether they have had a successful year.

CN Publications Three clubs in Lincoln devote themselves to publicatinns. The first of these is the Lincoln Log club which publishes the school paper. This most interesting palier appears every two weeks with news of the school. items of interest about the teachers and pupils. literary productions of our pupils. and much of the humor of the school. Lintoln Log day is an important day in the week. The Annual club sponsors the year book. The members collect, write, and edit the material that appears. They sponsor the subscription campaign. Since the price is :L moderate one, a large per cent of the school can have the book. The club also sponsors many entertainments for the raising of money to help defray the expenses of the book. Many members take part in these entertainments. When the books are received, the Club has the pleasant task of distributing them to their purchasers. The BiteO-Scienee Club publishes a small but interesting paper, The Bil-O- Stimm. 0f especial interest to the science classes. This paper is an example of the m-operation in our school, for it is printed by the printing classes under the direc- tion of Mr. Middleton. The record of our publications is not complete without mention of the small. interesting papers written and printed by the different printing classes. Thev are welcomed for their jokes if for no other reason. 1934 raga sixty THE LINCOLN ANNUAL Annual Staff1First Semester Row 1: Dick 1V01fley 113111106, Dick Stanwood, Doris Meyer, Miss Burr, Raymond Curlen 113115111655 Manageo, John Fugerslrom.

May 4, 1934. Dear Friend, - I have heard that you are going to start to Lincoln. Well, you will hnd it a very nice school. It has been said that our principal is one of the best in Illinois and that the educa- tional system is about the best. We have a large gym which can be divided into two sections, one for the boys and one for the girls. There is a nice cafeteria where you can eat your lunch and where you can buy hot food very inexpensively. In our library you can get books to take home for reading or study, but the books must be returned the next morning so other children can use them. However, you may reserve the books so you can take them home the next day. There are different shops for the boys, such as machine, auto, cabinet, printing, home mechanics, and mechanical drawing. The girls have cooking and sewing. There are other subjects, such as English, social science, foreign languages, mathematics, typewriting, art, and music. We have a band and orchestra, which you may join and in which you may learn to play various instruments. There's one more thing, and PH bet youire waiting for it. Have we a swimming pool? Yes, we have a very nice one with a tiled floor. Only certain classes may swim there dur- ing school hours, but on designated days after school others may use it: Well, you will find plenty of things that are of interest, and 1111 be looking for you. Sincerely yours, WAYNE HULT, 7A-1. at n; n: Abraham Lincoln Junior High School, Rockford, Illinois. May 4, 1934. Dear Newcomer, I wonder if you will be as glad to be enrolled as a new pupil at Abraham Lincoln Junior High School as I was. I hope y u l, and 1 do believe every beginning pupil is thrilled to come to this wonkrfu t 00 Junior High School is known for its be tiful . an lass rooms. It has very efficient and p1 n nstructors who are always w' g give their best for the educa- tional welfare the pupils. Besides the regul cl ssroom subjects, a pupil has the privilege of se ecting subjects along the line of he desires to pursue in the future. Some of the electives are band, art; music, and busmess practice. I know you would like to know something about our orchestra. We have seventy-tive players in it. We meet for forty-five minutes of practice three times a week with Mr. Bor- nor, our capable director. Mr. Bornor makes these practice periods not only educational, but because of his pleasing personality, most enjoyable, too. Yours sincerely, W Abraham Lincoln Junior High School, Rockford, Illinois. May 4, 1934. Dear Newcomers, Knowing how most pupils coming here for the first time feel, I am going to write to you to help you. It may be a little hard to find the rooms the hrst day, but after that I dont think you will have any trouble, for the numbers from one to ten are in the basement; numbers from one hundred and one to one hundred and twenty areion the hrst floor; those from two hundred and one to two hundred and twenty-six are on the second floor; and those from three hundred and one to three hundred and twenty-one are on the third floor. The auditorium is on the first floor at the east end of the building, while the library is above it on the third floor. The office is straight ahead of you as you enter by the main entrance, which is on the Charles Street side of the building. The gymnasium is located at the west end of the building on the first floor. Above it on the third floor is the cafeteria. The dispensary is on the main floor, the first room west of the main entrance. Of course the pupils in the higher grades, especially the ninth graders, will tease you a bit, but donit take it to heart. They donlt really mean it. There are always some people who will tell you that the work here is very hard, but that isnit the truth. The work here isn't at all hard if you work. You must remember that your minds should be enough developed that you can do harder work than you did in the fourth or fifth grades. The teachers are always willing to help you if you need or want help, so donit worry too much about the work. Your friend, HELEN GEIGER, 9A-6. 1934 page sixty-jive THE LINCOLN ANNUAL Some Glimpses 1934 page sixty-xix THE LINCOLN ANNUAL About School page sixty-scveu THE LINCOLN ANNUAL The Lincoln Log Is Out Today tExcerpts trom papers during the yen? MISS VAN DUZER TALKS ABOUT BOOKS Here is something that is annual. Not the Lincoln Annual. It is Miss Van Duzerls annual visit to Lincoln. She came on Wednesday, the 22nd of November. She talked to the English classes about books and the National Book week. She gave us something we thought we would get out of when she came, a test. It was not hard at all. The purpose of it was to show pupils how encyclopedias are alphabetized and how to find words in them. GUM CHEWERSe READ THIS AND SMILEH Have you ever wondered how many sticks of gum and pieces of candy are thrown tby re- questD into our waste baskets every day?- Well, I have and it gave me a great idea. Here ytis: Suppose we should all get together and decide that on ONE spemhed day we would celebrate "Gumless Day," and on that day instead of sgendmg our pennies for gum or candy, we 5 ould collect them throughout the school as a sort of fund with which we could purchase food and .toys for Christmas baskets. That would certainly not be very hard on any of us, and then .we could all feel that, like the patriotic Americans during the World War who observed "MEATLESS." llWHEATLESS," and uHEAT- LESS" Days, we were "doing our bit." I believe that Lincoln students will back this move-so Ilm asking every home room teacher to appoint one person as collector for her group. Christmas tags are to be given to all who go without their usual refreshments on GUMLESS DAY-December 19, Tuesday-provided, of course, that they hand over their pennies. Come on, everybody! tteachers includedi. Get in step and make our first GUMLESS DAY a howling success. Margaret Fitzgerald. PRINT SHOP HAS COPY OF VERY OLD NEWSPAPER Mr. Middleton has an exact reproduction of the first copy of the New York Sun which was pub- lished September 3, 1883. This interesting paper is even smaller in size than the Lincoln Log. It has four pages and cost only one penny. On the first page of the paper is a column of advertisements, advertising the boat rates to Albany, London, and to other parts of the world. On the same page there is also a story. The second page has more ad- vertisements, and also a long poem. This paper is very interesting to read because all the type was hand set. Mr. Middleton sent away. for this paper so that he could show his printing classes how the papers look that were printed a hundred years ago. With this old paper he also received a story about the New York Sun, and reproduction of the pictures they print there. SECRETS What couldnlt some notebooks tell us! In them is everything from algebra to love letters the- lieve it or 1100. Ah, here's one. Let's see whats inside. llHey, you lay off that notebook!" Know why he didn't want us to look?

The little freshie drop- ping his notebook and scatterin his papers to the four winds is a common sig t but hard on the notebook. The freshie probably was too much interested in finding the room and absent- mindedly set his notebook down in the hall. Many feet stepped on the poor notebook before it was recovered, and by that time it was ready for the ashcan. Stop and think all the poor notebook.has to fear, but it still faithfully keeps guarding the secrets which we would like to know and that the owner wouldnlt want us to know, I wonder how many times the notebook could "cough up" a paper that its owner said was at home. The notebook remains faithful and keeps the secret. A MIDNIGHT ADVENTURE Listen, my children, and you shall learn Of the midnight adventure of John J. Urn. ,Twas the 25th of December in 33, Hardly a person will you see Who does not know of that famous day, That very famous day. John Urn was the father of children three, And they were unruly as they could be. They wanted this, and they wanted that. They were always in mischief; they painted the cat, And sat on poor John's Sunday hat, Sat on his silk Sunday hat. Now Christmas was near and they had heard How on this eve a strange thing occurred, How a jolly fat man down the chimney came And Santa Claus was his funny name. Now to see this man had become their aim, To see him was their aim. What could John do but fultill their request? So he donned the gay outfit of Santa Claus, lest His young ones find the story a myth, And he tilled up with pillows, wore a beard long and white So when he was finished he looked a sight, A sight for any sore eye. At twelve o'clock he ascended the roof But when half way up he came down with a boot! He mounted the ladder again undaunted, And gaily his tasseled cap was Haunted Against the snow as it waved and taunted, Taunted the bitter wind. As slowly his eyes met the top of the ledge, He lowered them again to the snow-covered hedge. For there lay his sack of candy and toys. Oh! Was there no justice? Did the world hold no joys? But again he descended amidst a great noise, For the ladder descended with him. Painfully, he crept up again, His burden seemed big for twenty men, Into the big old chimney he climbed, His eyes became filled with the soot and the grime. Again he fell, for the third and last time. 'Twas the third time he had fallen. He landed in a forlorn heap, The children rushed to him with a leap, They fell upon him in one big pile, And after a painfully long-little while Were gone, John smiled a weary smile. The bag of toys was gone. John stumbled up to his clean white bed, And there he pillowed his aching head. When the children rushed in with a mighty 5 out, Calling "Merry Christmasil he turned them out, And sighed from utter misery and doubt uMerry Christmas! Bah!"

The much talked of event soon arrived. Every- one was ready to sit down for dinner. I pulled my chair out preparatory to sitting down. My uncle had an inspiration to be gentlemanly. He pulled out my chair still farther just as I sat down-on the flood! That wouldnlt have been so bad if I had not knocked over my fruit cock- tail and broken my plate as I fell. Was my face red?

SCIENCE LECTURER T0 SPEAK HERE NOVEMBER 12 Start saving your pennies!! You need only ten cents to hear Glenn L. Morris, a scientific lecturer in the auditorium, November 22Y at 2 P. M. The stage will be covered with many instru- ments he uses in explaining and demonstrating many puzzling electrical problems. He carries with him what is probably the smallest wireless outfit in the world, With this he controls the lights in a miniature lighthouse. He demonstrates how ships and airplanes are controlled as if by an unseen hand, and the terrible danger that can be caused when elecA tricity is not under control. An electrical storm is produced on the stage. It is impossible to describe the terrific effect you see and hear. The smallest portion of the force used in this experiment, if passed through the human body, would prove instantly fatal. Bells ring! A candle .is lighted from a dfop of water! Mysterious lights a pear! Terrihc heat is generated apparently rom nowhere! Don't miss this entertainment. .Any general science entertainment is worth seeing!

By- the-by, when you have finished you should know who the teacher is, as the reason for this column review, preview, or interview, is to sharpen your wits. Well, to get back to the story, this teacher has a black cat at her house, but it doesnlt seem to be unlucky. The cat is called "Baby." She is never cross to him. When asked for an interview she mentioned that she should have a "ghost writerii to an- swer all the questions about her. If you were told that she is about five feet four and one'half inches tall and had brown hair, you might guess who it is, so you'll just have to Find that out for yourselves.

In summer comes vacation time. And oh! we have the jolliest time; We run and play, laugh and shout, But some just sit around and pout, But I! I'm glad as ever.

Cheerup, Cheerup, Hear the robinls merry call Penetrating house and hall; Cheerup, cheerup, bright and clear, Brightening the hearts of those who hear.

Spring is here; the whispering trees put on a coat of green; . Spring is here; the tulips nod in softly rustllng breeze, Spring is here; the daffodils their gayest colors on, The laughing brook in rambling haste goes rac- ing on and on. eDorotliy Rosander, 813-1.

I woke up all the folks, she said, And then she put me back to bed. Elizabeth M. Stewart, 8B-4. THE BLACK BEAR It was a warm evening in Yellowstone Park, When a big black bear came out for a lark; He filled himself up on the garbage so fine, Until a big grizzly came on down the line.

Summer vacation means fun every day, Helping the whole world sing and play, Going to the pool to swim and dive; It makes me glad I am alive. June will come and vacation bring, And then again I will play and sing, Gay as the birds and bees in their hive, Gee! Ilm glad that I'm alive. Vacation is only a few weeks away, f only it would come and stay! I can hardly wait for it to arrive. Arenlt you glad that youlre alive? e-Virginia Powell, 7A4. MY FRIEND Let me have a friend. kind and true, Whose friendship is fresh as the morning dew. Let that friend be of comfort in time of grief. And when possible bring me relief. Let me have a friend who is pleasant, Whose jokes and fun are always present. Let him be jolly, too, when I am gay, And share with me each beautiful day. -Elsie Johnson, 9A-6.

FIVE LITTLE GIRLS Five little girls coming to school The first thing they did was to break a rule; They gayly f1xed their curly hair And stayed five minutes while they were there. The bell pealed out a warning sound, And then they excitedly ran around, But to their dismay they were too late, And of course they had to suffer their fate. To the office they went and there were jarred To hear the principalis voice seeming hard; To the office they slowly and sadly went And heard Miss B0wma1fs voice 011 punishment bent, nA zero for each of you, And next time it will be two." These five little girls did now hurry to school For they would not break another rule, And never again were they ever late For they would not sutTer the same hard fate. eDorothy Ethington, 7Av9.

At least three times a day And you leave foyr home at night with everything to do. Get home, eat your dinner, settle down to work. Even a teacher wouldnlt like it, I bet.

Some work is good for you, I know, But this continued grind Every day, in every way Is getting on my mind. -Evclyn Johnson 9A-1. ALADDIN'S LAMP If I but had Aladdinis lamp, Ild wish for a garden green; Where trees were made of lollipops, The best ones ever seen.

In a pool of soda pop; Ice-cream chickens by the pool, Some peppermint eggs would drop. Ild bring all children from afar, Theyid like it very much, For here there'd be no tummy aches. Nu spankings or the such. eElnora Grime, 8A-3. THOUGHT FOR CHRISTMAS Under the friendly stars at night, A humble manger lay, and Unto these poor surroundings Came glory on Christmas Day. For a little child was born, Under a brilliant star, To see this tiny infant, Came Wise Men from afar. When the whole world knew of it. All men rejoiced and sang Praises t0 the Christ Child And bells with gladness rang. So on December twentyvhfth We celebrate His birth, And like those others long ago, Pray for happiness on earth. Old Santa is a symbol Of Christmas and its cheer; The mistletoe and holly wreaths Announce its drawing near. So gather iround the fireside And sing your songs of glee; May everyone be happy, As they watch the Christmas tree. eJeanettc Best, 913-1. LEAVES 'iCome, little leaves, said the wind one day, iiCome with me to the hilltops to play They dressed themselves in red and gold, For thelyd. knew the summer was gone and winter co They flew one by one to the hilltops gay; They whirled and circled until it was day. They hid their faces snug and tight Beneath snow blankets soft and white. -Doris Pearson, 8B-4. page seventy-four MY FRIEND 0X5 Told by Rovery When I was small, I had a home So cozy and so comfortable; They fed me well and kept me warm But still ltwas not suitable. So one day I took my leave And went out to see the world; I roamed about without a friend While many shoes at me were hurled. After having lunch from a garbage can, I sat under a fir tree limb; I thought of food and my nice warm bed, Aml decided to go to my home again. But where did I come from-was it east or west? My! was so terribly mixed up! It might have been north, or it might have been south- You see Ilm not an intelligent pup. So I closed and turned round about fast; To see where my sharp nose pointed to; For some people say, HJust follow your nose And youtll get to the place someone's waiting for it you my eyes I followed my nose, and what do you think, hVithin two days was back home once more, My mistress was waiting with welcoming arms, And my bone near my bed was still on the floor.

MY LITTLE FRIEND I have a kitten that is very sweet And keeps herself both clean and neat. She follows around wherever I go, yTil I sit down aml hold her just so. At once she jumps into my lap, And settles down to take a nap. I take a hook off of the shelf, And settle down to amuse myself. After we have had a good rest, I give pussy some milk; she likes it best. We work until pussy gets sleepy again, Then to our wonder, it's almost ten. And that's bed time. -Genevieve Rhodes, 9A-10. THE RUSH AFTER THE BELL A bell rang loud in each classroom The students milled about, And through each numbered classroom door A hasty mob charged out. Some galloped at a top speed run While others lingered here For a chance to ask some questions 0f their English teacher dear. The corridor began to buzz As though a swarm of bees Had entered into our dear school To learn the A-B-C's. Many a grunt and a groan was heard Throughout the sleeping mass, As one more brawny lad charged through To get to his next class. -Margaret Henderson, 9Ae7. THE LINCOLN ANNUAL INDIAN SUMMER The leaves turn scarlet, gold, and brown, As summer gives up her reign; The days grow short, the shadows O'er every road and lane. long, There's a rustle of leaves as animals Run, leaving not a track, And brownies seem to peep around Each cornstalk and haystack, Arriving with its goblins bold, Halloweien will soon be here; The witches ride on broomsticks And the Jack-oi-Lanterns leer. The rays of Indian summer Steal on us unaware; The air is warm and balmy. As we watch the hontlreis glare. The clays of warmth give way to cold; October slips away; Novemberls here. and with its chill Jack Frost has come to stay. Jeanette Best, 9B -1. A FRIEND A friend is one who In sorrow is always true! And if you have some trouble, Will always help you through. No matter how long you're away, His friendship will never fail, And when you come again back home, Helll greet you with cheering hail. A friend is always willing to do, Some kindly deed for you. And you should always remember You canlt change the old for new. eMarjoric Buldock, 9A6. A TALE 0F TAR A sailor went a-sailing Upon :1 breaking sea, But he had to start a-lmiling For the waves swept high as could be. He decided it would do him well To put about to port, For the sen became a raging swell, So he tried the last resort. Down came the billowing main sail, And the jib sail came as soon; For no boat could live in that gale, Or should we say typhoon? Very soon she sprang a leak, And the waves came pouring through; That sturdy boat of seasoned teak Would neler hold another crew. eHownrd Erickson, 7A-9. THE FRIENDLY MOON From my window one snowy night I saw the moon so shining bright; It seemed to say "Hello" to me, And make me understand and see The pleasant side of life. eClayton Carlson, 9A-6. 1934- page seventy-jive THE LINCOLN ANNUAL We,ve Been Well Entertained 1934 page sevcniy-six THE LINCOLN ANNUAL Basket Ball Row 1: Rohert Lindquist, Richard McEntee, Clifford Bergquist, Tony Gagliano, Stewart Johnson, Ed- ward Coutts, Hubert Burgess, John Randomis.

Basket Ball Due to the fact that there was no football this year, basket hall started earlier than usual. The first game was played on December 8th, against the alumni. It was a nip and tuck affair from start to finish. Lincoln led at half time 9-5, but the alumni staged a comeback in the final period and tied the game at 15 all with less than a minute to play. Art Donofrio stepped into the hero roll with a heave from the center of the floor which gave Lincoln her first victory 15-17. Coletta featured with six field goals. The following week the Rockford Senior High School Lightweights were met. and they proved to be too large an assignment. Nervousness, plus the handicap of playing against more experienced hoys, proved too much for Lincoln, and we suffered our Erst defeat. 37-14. This game demonstrated very clearly that Lincoln had a team of fighters and was not to be beaten without a struggle. The series with Roosevelt began on December 20th in our gymnasium. Roosevelt clearly outplayed us in the first half and were out in front 6-2 at the gun. Our team made a decided rally in the closing minutes of the game and were trailing by one point with several minutes remaining. During these minutes Lincoln had many opportunities to score, but inability to hit the hoop gave Roosevelt its first victory over Lincoln in three years 12-11. Roosevelt was encountered on its own floor on January 19th in the second game of the series. Similar to the other games this year the first half was very close, and we trailed 7-6 at the intermission. Our offense clicked in the Final period, and Lincoln emerged with a well earned victory 18-13. Walter Dobniek was the oHensive star with two field goals and three free throws. Lincoln gymnasium was the battle site for the game on January 25th. This game was the finale for such stars as Coletta, Hoar, Donofrio, and Fabrick. These boys repre- sented Lincoln for the last time. After a somewhat slow start in the first half, these boys returned to hit their stride in the remaining half and wound up their athletic careers at Lincoln with a 19-13 Victory. This victory put us within one game of the championship. page sczrcnty-cight THE LINCOLN ANNUAL Lincoln had a much revised lineup against Roosevelt on the 8th of February. Most of our boys were inexperienced and this coupled with natural nervousness made them easy for the veterans from Roosevelt. Roosevelt seemed much improved over their previous games. Their ball handling and shooting were almost flawless. They far over- classed us that day and tied the series with a well earned victory 24-9. Without a doubt the greatest crowd that ever witnessed a junior high school basket ball game in Rockford was assembled for the fifth and deciding game of the season. Every available niche in the gym was filled. Both teams were highly keyed for this final game. Each team scored point for point during the first half, and the score was knotted 7-7. Schrom had been the scoring ace for Lincoln. His long heaves were hitting the hoop. Lincoln forged ahead and held a 11-7 lead shortly after the second half began. At three- quarters the score was Lincoln 12, Roosevelt 9. The play was fast and furious in the fourth quarter. Lincoln lost the services of Schrom via the four foul rule. Even with this handicap the boys held a 15-13 lead with less than two minutes to play. Mroz, Roose- velt forward, sank a long shot, tieing the score and with less than a half minute to play repeated the performance and definitely gave Roosevelt the game and the championship. All of the members of the team played a great game. It was a wonderful come-back after the week before and proved without doubt that these boys really possessed the Lincoln spirit. With Frank Schrom, Landis Lofdahl, and Robert White, the regulars, returning, and a very promising array of substitutes, the prospects for this side of the river are very bright for next year. Swimming Lincoln Junior High School won the dual swimming match this year. Disqualification in the final event may have cost the Roosevelt swimmers a Victory in the meet held at Roosevelt on January 24, 1934. One of the mem- bers of the Roosevelt team made an illegal turn in the iinal race, a one hun- dred and twenty yard medley event, and Lincoln won the match twenty-flve t0 twenty-one.

In class we have calisthenics, folk dancing, tumbling, and games, each grade being different. In the seventh grade the games most played are hat ball, kick ball, and base ball. In the eighth, hand soccer, volley ball, and base hall. In the ninth, nine-court basket ball, volley ball, and base ball. Although a great many games are played, kick ball is the favorite of all. In the fall, a kick ball tournament is held between all the grades, and the grade and school champion are determined. In the spring when we can play outside, a base ball tournament is held. This year, however, this tournament was abandoned because of the work for the demonstration. Swimming is required of all 8A's. Each girl learns to swim several strokes; she also learns to dive. Usually there is a life saving class after school for those who wish to earn their emblems. The second semester this class was not held; but, instead, life saving instruction was given in class. Although only the eighth grade has swimming during school hours. any girl, who wants to. can swim after school every Monday. For those who like to play kick halL basket ball, volley ball, or base ball, there are games 011 Wednesday and Thursday afternoons. On May twenty-ninth a large city-wide Physical Education demonstration was held at the stadium. The seventh and eighth grade girls did tumbling and pyramid building, while the ninth grade girls did English country dances and the May-pole dance. The band provided the music. 1934 page eighty ' 1934 17090 eighty-one THE LINCOLN ANNUAL.

On one radio they were playing Annie Doesntt Live Here Any More, while on the other the cooking teacher was giv- ing a recipe. My sister asked me to copy the song and my mother wanted me to copy the recipe for her. This is what I got: uAnnie doesn't live in one teaspooniul of the one she waited for. Dissolve three yolks on that I would know you by four big cups of flour in fancy vests and polka dot ties. You answer to vanilla and salt so youlre the guy.

THE LINCOLN ANNUAL MISS HALL There stands Miss Hall; She's not very tall; In fact, therels hardly any Of her at all.

THE BIOGRAPHY OF A LIZZIE tTINl A Ford was stuck; I came along in a truck; The occupant asked for a ride; I asked one of them To get me some hemp, tnotarhymel As out of the car I did slide. He got the rope lrom a country dope, And tied it to the car; The rope did bust O'ou can laugh if you musU But the car didnlt get very far. I got out to crank, But along came Lank, So I asked him to help me out; He said with a smile, llI'll help you awhile, But Ilm going fishing for trout." He didn't Shirk, But got right to work, iTil his hands did burn and smart; He turned and he sweated, He cried and he fretted, And he finally got it to start. We went down the road, And we hit a big toad; The Ford was a sight to see; The truck went pell-mell, We all went-wellewell. Now it's all historee. eMarshall Brenneis and Ray Dimond. page cighty-eight NEVER AGAIN Listen, my children, and I will relate What most people say when they are late, "I could not help it, our clock was slow." There is a pause; then to the office you go. Then you enter the office dear and old, Your face showing signs of gloom, But you know the worst is yet to come, As you enter your own home room. As you walk up to the desk your face Turns unto a bright red. And you wish that you had listened When your mother said, llGet out of lied." The whole room looks up at you And they seem to be amused. When you look at your admit then you see That you are inexcused. That is surely enough for you. All are teasing you but a few. The bell rings; youlre saved at last. You welcome its strident blast. -Mildred Cave, 9A-10. THERE IS A DAY COMING FOR US AND HOW! There may be a new day dawning that will be of great benefit to those poor creatures who sit In those forbidding looking buildings from 9:00 a. m. to 3:30 p. m. live days a week. This day that will soon dawn upon the earth will lib- erate the creatures that we call school children. The new order of things will he very much out of the track of every day things. The present day method of doing this is HThen in came the gruff olrl doctor, all in a great turmoil. And gave to little Willie a dose of castor oilfy I This is the way that things are done now. THE LINCOLN ANNUAL prophesy that it will not always be that way. I have grounds for this belief. The world of science today recognizes the fact that a twelve- year-old child has a more active brain than one of twenty or up. That means that those between ten and twenty can think much better than those that are older. When this happens, you will hear little Johnny, just fifteen, tell his forty year old father to go to the store, or he may say, "Mother, please wash the dishes." Then will the younger generation take their long-waited-for revenge on their elders. You may see some headlines saying "Johnson elected president," and then the story will go on to say that he is nineteen, and he has chosen a cabinet of men that are between fifteen and twenty-one years of age. Then the voting laws will also change so that they will read uCitizens over forty and those that are under ten years old will not under any condition be allowed to vote." There will be a visible increase in the number of old folks' homes. In the meantime there will be just as decided a decrease in the number of childrenls homes. The boy of ten will just be entering the breadwinning job while those that are over forty will be just about through in the industrial world. What, then, you ask, will we do with those that live to a ripe old age? They will he simply taken care of by their children and in most cases by their grandchildren. The children as a rule have not the hard hearts that the older ones sometimes have and there will be much less crime and fewer colu- plications. Then the old song that runs uSchool days, school daysN will be very much out of place. The children will not be required to go to school so long. The new order will be, Then in came Willie, not in very much of a hurry, And gave to the gruff old doctor a bottle of cas- tor oil. eLincoln Log. 1934 page eighty-ninc THE LINCOLN ANNUAL Class Will of the First Semester 9A Class We, the first semester class of 1933- 34, 0f the Abraham Lincoln Junior High School of the City of Rockford, County of Winnebago, and State of Illinois being of sound and disposing mind and memory, and free from the exercise of any wrongful restraint or influence, do hereby make, publish and declare this as and for our Last Will and Testa- 111e11t,in the words and figures following, that is to say: 1.
