HANNA, OUR PRINCIPAL .E u A ul f 4 E l 936 LINCOLN ANNUAL TREASURES "As jewels are treatrured in the casket, to be brought forth on great occasions, so we should preserve the 1'6'Wlf6111fIIi'l1-MCE of our joys, and keep them for seasons when special consolations are wanted to cheer the soul."-JANE KIRKPATRICK. These words express much that we hope to accomplish in this, our nineteen hundred and thirty-six ANNUAL. For we are engaged in the collection of these memories. We should not keep them locked away in caskets, as are jewels of the mine that thieves may steal. Our jewels can not be taken from usg we should wear them always, enriching our lives and the lives of those around us. Our treasures are not precious stones, nor stores of gold, nor works of the old masters. Our treasures are the knowledge we have gained, the friends we have made, and the characters we hope we have developed. While we are in school, we do not fully appreciate the worth of these treasures we are gathering: VVe know that the time will come when we shall know their worth much more truly. It is to preserve the record of some of these treasures that we have written this book. The first of our treasures is knowledge gained in school. We have a large building, well- equipped, and an excellent staff of teachers. Our opportunities are wide and varied. Almost every department that could well come within the scope of our ability and interest is repre- sented in our school. We gain the knowledge and skills in junior high school that will enable us to do the work of the senior high school. In this book we are showing the members of our faculty, we are showing pictures of some of the classes, and we are showing pictures of some of the treasure hunters who have been unusually successful in their search for scholastic treasures. VVe are proud of these people. , A second treasure, scarcely less valuable than that of knowledge is that of friendship. How we envy the person who has a large circle of friends! We, in junior high school, learn that we must cultivate friendship as the gardener cultivates a beautiful plant. We know that we must choose our friends carefully, must be alert to cultivate this friendship, and must pre- serve it that we may enjoy it for years to come. This book contains the pictures of all our junior high school friends. We know in years to come we shall find much happiness in looking at their pictures and remembering the happy days at Lincoln. Health is another valued treasure of our school days. Our need for an outlet for our peut-up feelings is satisfied in our line gymnasium, swimming pool, and playground. Here, both during class and during the hours before and after school, we have the joy and stimulation of exercise and exciting competition. We have shown in the pages of this book some of the activities of the gymnasium and the playground. We have shown the school teams, some of the gym classes, and some of the people noteworthy in their leadership and ability in athletics. We value, as the most desirable treasure, a good character. Much is done by us and for us that we may gain strong traits of character. In our classes, in our associations with our friends and classmates in classroom and out, we learn and appreciate the worth of honesty, kindness, good sportsmanship, reliability, and honor. These we trust we shall always be able to preserve among our treasures. In the pages of this book will be found the names and pictures of some of our friends whose strength of character has caused them to be marked for special recognition. Among our treasures are a great many memories of happy days spent together in Lincoln. There are the assemblies, the class plays, the operetta, the amusing incidents that give variety to our class work-the hundred and one things that make each day different from any other. These memories are recorded in this book in picture and story that we may enjoy them again and again. Thus we make our book a record of the treasures that we find in our years at Lincoln Junior High School. Www I Sis WW fr' fin? Ellie, ' ff g g.

Mr. Hanna, our principal, organized our school and has been its principal ever since. He is assisted by Miss Bowman, who has been the assistant principal of the school since it moved into our building. Miss Hornke, Miss Erickson, and Miss Born are the able office assistants who seem to have an uncanny ability to know each of us and to know where each one ought to be. Miss Seal is our librarian, and to her goes our thanks for the unlimited assistance she gives us in Finding the material that we need for our work. Miss Dagnan is the school nurse, who watches over us, ready to help whenever we need it and always on the alert to guard the health of our school. A stranger in our halls for the first time when all two thousand pupils are dismissed from class, might think that it would be impossible for such a huge crowd to get ready for class without much confusion. Such is far from the truth. Within the five minutes allowed for passing between classes, everyone has sufficient time to get settled and ready for work. There are six class periods during the day and two home room or club periods. The home room period in the morning is only five minutes in length but sufficient to hear the necessary announcements for the day, get supplies for work ready, and have absences recorded. The afternoon home room period is a half hour in length and is used for various activities. Once every two weeks each home room attends assembly in the auditorium. There are three lunch periods each thirty-five minutes in length. Since almost everyone eats in the cafeteria or the subsidiary lunch room, this is sufncient time for lunch and a short visit with friends. The school is organized in eleven departments, some required and some purely elective, In the pages following we shall give a brief summary of the work of each department and show some of the activities of each.

This course was planned to give us a knowledge of the art fields: painting, sculpture, architec- ture, commercial art, and industrial art. lt helped us to develop initiative and ability to do creative work. This course included decorative illustrations made in show card paint, lettering, block printing, pencil drawing, color theory, and perspective as used in the drawing of houses and other buildings. VVe spent a short time in the architecture, sculpture, and painting of other countries and periods. Going on to Art H, we gained greater skill in drawing and painting. We used many new incthods and materials. VVe did our block printing in two colors: we made drawings in rooms in angular and parallel perspective, and we planned interior arrangements and furnishings of rooms. Using a figure, we each made a decorative illustration, VVe continued our work in pencil drawings. VVe made studies of pictures painted by the great masters. Last, but not least, we each made a poster to advertise a school or community project, Then we entered Art Ill, a course that provided us with opportunities to explore new methods ot' working and to develop individuality and initiative. VVe studied the landscaping of homes, schools, and small parksg designing and painting magazine covers, decorative flower and vase arrangementg pen and ink illustrationsg designs for the cover and the other art work for the Anuzralq and designs for scenes for exhibits in the hall display cases. Completing our art work in Art IV, we found it a continuation of our previous work. VVe did still more individual work and acquired further skill in the use of materials. This last course consisted oi stage settings, pen and ink work. and craft problems, including leather work, plaster tiles, and block printing on cloth. We have completed our art courses with the knowledge that we have gained both in appre- ciation and skill in the field of creative art, VVe cherish these treasures. An Art III Class is at Work Page 9 l 936 LINCOLN ANNUAL SOCIAL SCIENCE Miss Hyzer, Miss Lilas Larson Fitzgerald, Miss Petritz, Miss Peters ' What treasures we gathered from social science! Our teachers have aroused such interest in our minds concerning history and world affairs that we are eager to gather additional infor- mation in our everyday reading. Beginning in 7B with the study of southern lands and people, we had a very interesting time all our days in social science classes. During this period we made many interesting dis- coveries of our southern neighbors, who are of increasing importance to us in United States. XVe studied our own country in 7A, and found that we had much to learn about its geography and resources. We found the development of North America very romantic and interesting, as we studied its discovery and exploration, and the growth of its independence. In 8B we studied the development of a new nation and government. As we learned of the struggles of such men as Benjamin Franklin and Alexander Hamilton to establish a strong government in our country, we developed an increased love and respect for our consti- tution and laws. It took a long time for our country to develop into a world power, so long, in fact, that we spent most oi SA social science studying about it. The wars proved to be very exciting. The stories of Stonewall Jackson, U. S. Grant, R. E. Lee, and other Civil VVar leaders were most interesting. The World War, too, brought many thrilling days in class, as we recounted stories that we had read and that our parents had told us. In 9B we brought up the problems of our community. We talked of the work of our health, police, tire, and other departments of city government. It was interesting to learn of the difficulties foreigners have in becoming Americans. In 9A we made our Career Books. These helped us to think and plan about what we should like to do when we are through with our school days. Perhaps all of our dreams of careers won't come true, but we like to dream them anyway. VVe learned more about our city, state, and national governments. As we look over our treasures gathered in social science class, we see knowledge of our country and its laws, increased respect and love for our country, and the determination to be better national and world citizens.

Those who expected to make their living in the business world especially profited by these courses. Those who were taking the work for the help the courses would give them in everyday life, found them of much help. Business practice is probably the most popular elective at Lincoln. It gives us a general knowledge of business and a foundation for the later commercial work. VVe realized the importance of business organization when we learned the different ways of organizing a business and the work done in the different departments. XVe never knew of the many ways of sending money until we started to study them. There are so many ki11ds of insurance and related forms of business, that we had no idea of their features until we took business practice. While studying the telephone and telegraph system, we had the privilege of visiting the telephone and telegraph ofhces. How we enjoyed it! And that wasn't all. VVe visited the post-office while we studied the mail system. VVe won't soon forget that interesting movie, entitled Here Comes the fllnil. lt was really fun to study filing, especially when we had actual material to tile. People often have noticed business practice pupils practicing cash recordsg they have wondered why these pupils seemed so engrossed in their practice. It was for the contests on cash records. There were other contests, too. VVe had them while studying filing and time and payroll checks. There are other treasures to be found in business practice, but we have named the most con- spicuous, Next came that popular subject, typing. It doesn't seem hard to sit down allfl type tweny- six words perfectly in one minute until one has tried it. It tooka lot of practice and work, too, before we were able to do this. Now we are able to type all of our notebooks. XVe are all hoping to have a typewriter of our own some day. As we look over our treasures, we find a great many. XVe have the ability to type any 111aterial at a good speed, and we have a general knowledge of business. A Typing H Class at Work Page 11 l 936 LINCOLN ANNUAL HOUSEHOLD ARTS Miss Hall, Miss Evans Let's look at the treasures we have gained from the household arts. First, we have the satisfaction of knowing we can make, as we have made, finished articles that anyone might well be proud to acknowledge. When we girls entered Lincoln as 7B's, we were put into sewing classes. Here we learned the fundamental stitches of sewing. We then made our uniforms, including an apron, head- band, and bagg with this we made a hot pad. Some of us, more rapid than the others, had time to knit sweaters or to make simple dresses. In 7A we had foods. XVe planned and served breakfast and luncheon, but we spent most of our time on breads. VVe were all anxious to take the 8A foods course where a greater variety of cooking was to be done. In 8B, the course in home management, we had a survey course consisting of the study of manners, of what to do in our leisure time, of budgeting, of home planning, and of baby care. When we finished our required work, many of us continued to take courses in household arts. Those of us who took SA clothing learned to knit and to crochet. Most of us knit dresses, later crocheting accessories for them. In SA foods, we canned and preserved many foods and planned and served dinners. XYe spent time in research concerning commercial canning. Two courses were open to ninth graders: clothing I and II, or foods I and II. In the course in clothing we made note books including a study of good grooming, of the relation of personality to dress, design, and color, and of the use of patterns. Each of us made some pajamas and a cotton dress. In clothing II we studied thc use of wool and silk, each of us making a wool skirt or suit and a silk blouse. In foods I we studied food preservation, frozen desserts, breakfasts, and luncheons. NVe reviewed many of the problems we had in 7B. In foods II we continued the work of the hrst semester and included the foods for special occasions, invalid and fancy cooking, and cooking for young children. Here are some of our treasures: the ability to actually make things, to plan, prepare, and serve meals, and to plan and create our own wardrobes.

For we who took this course enjoy working with tools and machinery and creating things with our hands. We had courses in printinghmechanical drawing, cabinet, carpentry, electric, machine, and auto shop, and in home mechanics. From each of these we gained knowledge and skill that will always be of use to us. Let us look over some of the things we have done. XVe have made pen and ink tracings of architects' sketches, including Floor plans, building plots, and perspective sketches. VVe have made blue prints of our drawings. We have learned to set type and to operate the printing press. VVe have made many cards and blotters which we have distributed to our friends. VVe have had the pleasure of taking home many artistic and useful articles which we made in cabinet shop or in home mechanics. XVe have learned a great deal about the structure of an automobile until now we can make simple repairs on one. In machine shop we have learned the first principles of machine workg we have progressed to the point where we can work on the lathe. We have learned the principles of electric wiring and the repair of electric appliances. Now we can make repairs about our house and save many a repair bill for our parents. Altogether, we have acquired many skills which are now useful to us. Best of all, we have discovered the type of industrial art for which we are best fitted and in which we can be most contented. Many of us plan to continue in thc field of industrial arts when we get to high school. Our experience in junior high school has made it possible for us to choose the particular shop we want when we get to senior high. Some of us will not take any more of this work. We ieel that we have already acquired the help and skill that will be sufficient for our future needs. On the following page will be found some additional pictures taken in our shops. These will give some idea of the varied and interesting time that the boys who take industrial arts have. .ri 5.2 .-wa In Mechanical Drawing Class The Printing Class is Busy Page 13 illbe i936 LINCOLN ANNUAL AROUND THE SHOPS ln Machine Shop The Boys In Auto Shop A tour of the shops of Lincoln is an enlightening and interesting experience for anyone. Until one has actually seen them, one little realizes the varied activities of a school such as ours. Our shops are well equipped, as well as will be found in any junior high school and as well as most commercial shops. Here the boys have the experience of working under the con- ditions of work in industry, and of discovering for themselves the work for which they are pre- pared. Many boys choose their life work as a result of their courses in junior high school industrial arts. The opportunity of trying various trades makes it possible for them to discover the ones which they wish to pursue in later years. On the three main floors of the building are located large lighted display cases in which are displayed exhibits which interpret the work of the school. One, located on the first floor, showed an interesting display of tracings made by boys in mechanical drawing classes. The Cabinet Shop The Electric Shop Page 14 l 936 LINCOLN ANNUAL HERE AND THERE We Take a Book Home The Book Shelves Invite Us Our library, on the third floor, is a well-lighted room with many large tables and com- fortable chairs. Here every hour of the day may be found a room full of pupils studying and reading. In small rooms adjoining the reading room are small conference rooms whose book shelves are devoted to the collection of books pertaining to a certain subject. On the shelves in the main reading room are to be found the large collections of Fiction and of general reference works. Our library has over fifty-three hundred volumes. Miss Seal, our librarian, is of great aid to all pupils in pursuit of information in the library. One of the means of providing practical education is found in the model apartment. This charming suite, simply and tastefully furnished, is located on the third floor adjoining the household arts laboratories. The apartment is in the care of the members of the various classes whose duty it is to keep it clean and in order. Teas, luncheons, and parties are frequently given at which the girls have most practical experience in a very necessary part of life- meeting people socially. Setting the Table A Display from Mechanical Drawing Page 15 I936 LINCOLN ANNUAL MATHEMATICS Miss Laura Larson, Miss Smith Burchfield Some of urs took three years of mathematics, while some of us took only the two that were fvequired, NVhichever course we took, we all acquired many treasures to last us the rest oi our IVCS. In 7B we studied common business forms with accounts, graphs, meter reading, and per- centage. VVe continued in 7A with geometry, construction, and design scale drawing, as well as the beginning of work with formulas. In SB we continued our study of geometry with a study of triangles and solids. We also had new problems in equations and in algebra. We continued and developed our study of formulas. By the time we reached SA, we were sup- posed to have a working knowledge of business arithmetic, nevertheless, we reviewed it in order to have it thoroughly fixed in our minds. This completed the required work in mathe- matics, but many of us were so much interested in the subject that we elected to take algebra in our ninth year. NVe continued, in 9B, the work in equations and learned the principles of positive and negative numbers. This theory opened a new world of mathematics to us, for we could now do many things that we could not do with simple arithmetic. In algebra II, we progressed to special products and fractional equations, finding them much more com- plicated than equations without fractions. We solved problems with not only one equation, but with sets of equations. The course ended with the study of powers and roots. Looking back over our three years of mathematics, We realize that we have many things for which to be thankful, chiefly the ability to perform the simple mathematical operations involved in the life of each of us. We have had an introduction to the different branches of mathematics and have learned to appreciate the power of mathematics in ordinary life, in related fields, and in advanced mathematical work. Now we understand the relation between mathematics and the outside world. We have gained treasures. The 7B's are in a Mathematics Class Page 16 Miss Mnrtfeldt, Miss Patterson, Miss Worster, Mrs. Loveland, Miss Noller, Mrs. Tjaden, Miss Miss Hiland, Miss Rudolph, Miss Olander Miss Burr, Miss Hickey, Miss Cotta 'lliss Geddes, Miss Hyzer, Mr. Ekeberg. Miss Cnbson, Miss Condon Xbsent: Miss Ballard, Miss Morgan l936lJNCOLN ANNUAL ENGLBH XN'e spent three years collecting the treasures offered in English. Even then, we know we have only begun the collection. We shall continue all through senior high school and, we hope, all through our lives. These treasures are of different kinds. Some, such as the work in grammar, we didn't like very well while we were gathering them, but we realize that we shall always be glad we have them. Most of us liked the composition work, both the written and the oral. VVe learned how to express ourselves, so that others could understand us. This has been already of great value to us in our other classes as well as in English class. At first we found it very hard to stand before the class and to talk for several minutes upon some subject, that nervousness soon wore off, fortunately, and now we enjoy it. Our parents tell us they envy us our ability to do this, for some of them find it almost impossible to talk before an audience. VVe wonder what they would do if they had to face the difncult audiences we face, for our class mates are very critical of us and are ready to point out all our faults. In the work in literature we have acquired many treasures. W'e have read a great deal from a great many different writers. VVe have become acquainted with many of the great writers, both of America and of other countries. We have read many of the pieces of liter- ature that everyone should know: we have read a Shakespearean play and are ready for more of them in years to come, we have become acquainted with most of the types of literature and have learned to enjoy biography and poetry as well as fiction. NVe have learned to look for certain qualities in the books we read and have acquired the rudiments of methods of criticism. We have furthered our love of reading as a chief source of pleasure and have learned of more and more books to read. XYe have learned how to discuss the books that we road and enjoy them with others. As we complete our course in junior high school English, we look over our many treasures and rejoice because of them. VVe are sure that we can speak and write more correctly and interestingly than we could before, and we have gained a wide acquaintance with that great nnmher of friends-good books. The 9A Class is Reading Shakespeare Page 17 1936 LINCOLN ANNUAL GENERAL SCIENCE Mr. Foss, Miss Johnson, Mr. Johnson Miss Campbell, Mr. Lofdahl, Miss Prien We have had two and a half years of general science, and we feel as if during that time that we have added greatly to our store of treasures. This is a brief account of our collection. When we started our study in 7A, we learned of our immediate surroundings. This in- cluded a study of air, heat, Fire, and air conditioning of the homes. In addition to this we studied the effects of stimulants and narcotics. In SB and SA we studied chemicals, rocks, stars, water, machines, light, sound, the weather, and more of stimulants and narcotics. In 9B we had a course in general biology that will always be of value to us. This course included a study of plants and animals and of their relationship to man. We studied human biology in 9A with the structure of the body, its functioning, and its needs. As we try to evaluate our treasures from this course, we are impressed with their num- ber. We have learned to observe nature intelligently. Our interest in the world about us has been increased. We are able to solve certain scientinc problems because of the amount oi scientific knowledge we have acquired. We have developed an attitude of mental alertness and curiosity, as well as an appreciation of health. We have gained a knowledge of our place in this world of living things. VVe know that everything is governed by certain laws of nature. We have had the privilege of visiting the electric plant and the water works and have seen how the public cares for the needs of the individual. We have had numerous picture exhibits related to our study. We have made microscopic slides. We have collected rocks and have helped with the science exhibits in the exhibit cases in the hall. All in all, we have gained much interesting and valuable knowledge and have had a most interesting time doing it. The 9B's have General Science Page 18 I 936 LINCOLN ANNUAL FOREIGN LANGUAGE Miss Morgan, Mrs. Bogen XVhen we open our treasure chest to see what foreign language has given us, we are amazed at the large numbers. Sometimes we thought it was all hard work and wondered what the good of it was, we appreciate it now. VVe had considerable variety from which to select the particular language we wished to learn. ln order to let us make a wise selection, we had in the eighth grade a course in general language. in which we had a taste of each of the languages offered in Lincoln. In general language l. we studied Latin and French, this included a study of the customs and people, as well as of the language itself. ln the next course we studied in a similar fashion Spanish and German. VVe made maps and brought to class current topics dealing with the languages we were studying. By this time we had decided on the particular language we wished to continue in our ninth grade work. Some of us discovered that we did not possess language ability, and this course had given us a useful test of our powers. Thus many of us were saved the disappointment of trying work for which we were not fitted. If we chose to con- tinue the language study, we had the choice of Latin, French, or Spanish. ln these specialized courses we studied the language, translated it into English, and gained a speaking vocabulary which has Fitted us to continue the work in senior high school. Many of us, in making out our courses for senior high school, have taken our favorite language as a major, Let's look at our treasures. Yve can read newspapers and magazines printed in foreign languages3 we have gained the basic knowledge of our chosen one: we can understand to a certain extent the spoken language: we have been greatly aided in our understanding of our own language, English: we understand more thoroughly the nieanfngs of English words when we perceive their derivation: we have gained the desire to pursue the study of our favorite language in years to come. In a Latin ll Class Page 19 l 936 LINCOLN ANNUAL MUSIC Through our study of music we have been able to express ourselves in a new way. Our treasures here are many. We began our course of music in the 7B class. Everyone took the 7B and 7A course. Here we sang folk music from many of the nations of the world. We also learned of the customs, the climate, and the people of the countries whose songs we sang. Some of the songs were real tests of our abiltiy, for many of them were in three parts, while some were even in four parts. We sang the songs of our own country as well as those of other peoples. VVe wonder if any of the popular songs oi today will be the songs that seventh grade pupils in years to come will be singing. Those of us who discovered that we had some talent in music, elected music I, II, and III. These courses included three and four part songs, cantatas, suites, operetta, and Christ- mas music. But our treasures in music were not all gathered in the class room. We had during the year some public appearances for which to prepare. We gave our annual Christmas song service to which a great crowd gathered to listen. On the day that school closed for the Christmas holidays, many of us marched through the halls of the building, singing Christmas carols. The silence in the rooms indicated with how much pleasure the pupils welcomed this little note of the approaching holidays. We broadcast several times in the various school programs over XVROK. Then on May 21 and 22 came the great musical event of the year- the operetta. We worked long and hard preparing for this, but the results justified all of our liarcl work. Everyone was delighted with the production, Related to the regular courses in music are the three musical clubs: the Boys' and the Girls' Glee Clubs, and the Girls' Operetta Club. They all took part in the Christmas Song Service and the Operetta. Besides these classes and clubs in vocal music we have our orchestra and band of which we are most proud. Both have appeared in assemblies and both have made appearances outside of school. They are both large organizations. , Probably the most important of our treasures is the training we receive and the development of our talent. VVe have learned to appreciate good music and to love it. A Music II Class Page 20 Mrs. Angus, Miss Needham, Miss Bernice Larson 1936 LINCOLN ANNUAL , 763 O DIS OVERED AMERICA? On May twenty-first and twenty-second the Lincoln Junior High School operetta, Who I.7i.rcoverfd Amertca? was given. It was one of the important events of the year. Who discovered America? The scene of the operetta was laid at the estate of Mr. Cere- bellum, the president of Brimtul University. Congress, desiring to settle officially the question as to who discovered America, appointed a board of college presidents to hold a hearing, to listen to advocates argue the claims of Columbus, John Cabot, and other claimants, and finally to name the true discoverer. Although it was of semi-private character, the hearing was broadcast. The doctor, between rounds, asked Phyllis, his daughter, to take his place at the microphone. She did and bared her heart and her double engagement problem to the nation. Congress in joint session perked up and took immediate interest. The question, "Who discovered America?" was neglectedg the doct0r's advocate efforts were ignored, the brain trust of Congress concentrated on the solving of Phyl1is's problem for her. A happy solution was found, even though the original question was left for posterity to settle. The cast was as follows: Dr. Cerebellum, president of Brimful University ......................................

Usually a contest between the two junior high schools. is held every year. We are proud to say that last year Lincoln won the coveted honor of winning this contest. Mr. Bornor, the conductor, receives the gratitude of the school for our excellent orchestra. Music is an important part of our lives. Our work in orchestra gives us an opportunity to produce music. We have a very happy time doing' it. Page 23 1936 LINCOLN ANNUAL THE BAND Mr, Elmquist.

One organization in our school of which we are very proud is our band. VVe have reason to feel as we do about it. XYhen the boys enter Lincoln, they are given the opportunity to join the band. Many of these boys have had no training at all in playing band instruments. 1n many cases the boys do not own an instrument. During their seventh grade they are taught to play the instrument for which they are best adapted. The training is continued in the eighth grade, so that by the time they are in the ninth grade, they help to form the excellent band we have. There are thirty- Fnve in the seventh grade band, forty-three in the eighth grade, and thirty-six in the ninth grade, or concert band. The boys have made numerous public appearances this year. They played before the Teachers' Institute on October 24, the Free Church, October 27: Zion Church, November 29, Tax Rate Rally, December 5, Christmas program, December 15, Kiwanis Club, April 16, District Band Contest at Sterling, March 27, State Contest at Bloomington, May 2, a concert at Lincoln, May 18, and a concert at Roosevelt, May 19. In many of these appearances, the bands from both Roosevelt and Lincoln played as one band. The band have this year achieved something never before achieved by one of our musical organizations, they, as part of the combined junior high school band from Rockford, vvon hrst place in the state band contest. They won the highest honors both in playing and in sight reading. Several boys have been outstanding in their Work in the band. Special mention should be made of Bernhard Harvey, who won hrst division rating at Sterling and second division rating at Bloomington in the Cornet Solo Contest. Burdette Kullberg won first division rating at Sterling and second division rating at Bloomington in the Flute Contest. Burdette has also the honor of having been elected chief musician of the Lincoln band. To Mr. Allen Elmquist, the leader of the band, goes our sincere thanks and congratulations, for to him goes the credit for the excellent work the boys do.

Don't we wish every class provided us with regular exercise and games, while at the same time it helped us to derive so many treasures from it! There were games welve played before and games that were new to us. Kick ball in the cold weather and baseball when it was warm were probably the most popular games among the girls. Many of us were very happy when we were named among the victors of the kick ball tournament. Then there were folk dancing, basket ball, and volley ball which many of us enjoyed. The boys had football in the fall, basketball in the winter, and baseball in the spring. Wlith both the boys and girls regular gymnastic exercises varied the program of games. Then came swimming in SA, VVhat fun! Those of us who couldn't swim when we started, certainly saw to it that we could before the semester ended. In fact, we liked swimming so well that we welcomed the chance to swim after school. Looking back over the time we've spent in physical education, we find a great store oi good and helpful treasures. We've learned games that we did not know beforeg we have gained in bodily vigor and have learned to value a strong bodyg we have tried to be more careful to observe the rules of health. Most important of all, we have learned to be good sports and to work together with our friends. The 7B's Have Folk Dances A Setting-Up Exercise Page 25 l 936 LINCOLN ANNUAL Sf .

Their home room teachers were waiting for them, and led them over the building, showing them their various class rooms, the auditorium, the cafeteria, the gym, and their lockers. The next morning everyone had forgotten where he was to go, so a tearful time was had. In time this fear passed away and we became quite at home in the building. The hrst big event in which the class participated was the operetta, The Outlaw King. Many of the class were in the chorus, and they all had a big thrill being there. Soon after that we saw our First 9A class play, it seemed impossible to us then that the day would come when We would be in our 9.-X class play. On May twenty-ninth came one of our biggest thrills-our first Lincoln Annual. VVe hurried around getting signatures, so that the number of autographs in our books would be as great as the number in those of our older brothers and sisters. We were most important when February of 1934 rolled around. And why shouldn't we be? VVeren't we eighth graders now? This year the operetta was Tulip Time, many of our number took part, some of them in prominent parts. XVe discovered that a large number of our class were boating enthusiasts. On May 22, boat races were held on Rock River. Many of the members of our class stayed away from school to attend the races. That they had to make up many zero hours didn't dampen their enthusiasm for the sport. May of 1934 was important to us in another way. Rockford celebrated its centennial, a good many of us had parts in the pageant that celebrated the event. We even closed schools so that we could all see the parade. Shortly after the pageant, a new episode came to distract our attention. This was the new Annual, a better than ever one. At last we were ninth graders. VVe found more difficult electives, for now we had algebra and foreign language. Vlfhen, in 9A we began to make our electives for senior high school, we realized that our days at Lincoln were numbered. Early in November try-outs for the 9A class play were held. The casts were chosen and for several weeks they worked hard, early and late. The fifth and sixth of December, the play, Guess Again, was presented. It was very good, and we were proud of the excellent cast. At the election held in November Miss Fitzgerald was chosen class adviser, and she led the class through many happy days. At the election held in November, the following were elected to class offices: Stanton Jensen, presi- dent, Carole Schmidt, vice-president, Louis VVard, treasurer: Harriette Peterson, secretary. On January twenty-sixth we had our class party and assembly combined. This was the first time that a 9A class had had a banquet. It was a great success, and everyone had a grand time. On February twenty-seventh we were dismissed from school, and we all had pangs of remorse at leaving dear Lincoln junior High. It was only the thought that there were others to take our places that enabled us to leave without greater regrets. Four of our groups had the experience of having new home room teachers in the course of their time at Lincoln. The 9A-5's were transferred from Miss Cotta to Miss Dobyns, the 9A-6's from Miss Swanson to Miss Fitzgerald, the 9Af7's from Miss Garde to Mr. Hintzg and the 9A-8's from Miss Brouse to Mrs. Bogen. While we clonlt want to boast, we still point with pride to the achievements of the class. Members of the class have been prominent in band and orchestra. They have furnished mem- bers to the Lincoln Log and Annual staffs: they have led in the work of the Student Council, they have set good examples for the rest of the school in every way. Page 61 l936 LINCOLN ANNUAL GUESS AGAIN l On December tifth and sixth Gucss Again, the first semester 9A play, was presented in the Lincoln auditorium.

The class was made up of eleven groups. NVe spent most of the first months here getting acquainted with the school. VVe encoun- tered the same dithculties all "freshies" have: searching in vain for the cafeteria on the first floor, or the gym on the third. VVe had been warned, so we did not try to take the elevators. Tn our eighth grade there was an epidemic of German ineasles. The majority of our class remained at home some time during the epidemic for a far from enjoyable five-day vacation. The class is made up of a large group of energetic loyal people, Each group has distin- guished itself in one way or another. . Then we became nine-B's, and at last we reached our Final goal-the important 9A's. In 9B the number of our groups was increased from eleven to tifteen. In 9B we had a very cold winter, and again many of our number were induced, after great persuasion, to remain at home. On March tenth the election of 9A officers was held. The results of the balloting showed VVayne Hult, president, Dick Blewfield, vice-presidentg Iris Olson, treasurer, Stanley Stasica, secretary. Miss Lee was previously elected the class adviser. Soon after the class election the first try-outs for the 9A play were held. The play chosen was Climbing Roses. A double cast gave two matinee performances on April thirtieth and May the First. Both were so well given that one could not choose between them. Next came the great, the gala event, the class party. This was held on the evening of May twenty-third. What a party! Next came the Annuals. The demand for ink is rapidly increasing as a result. The majority oi the members of the 9A-1 group came from the Vifight and John Nelson schools. Wayiie Hult, the class president, is from this group. In September. 1933. a group of very able 7B's under the leadership of Miss Muriel Lee, made their way through Lincoln. Ever since entering Lincoln, they have taken an interest in school activities. There are two members on the linrnln Log stafif and seven on the Amzzml staii. Seven of the group were in the class play. The greatest honor of all is that the home room teacher, Miss Lee, was chosen class adviser. Of the thirtyeseven members of the 9A-3 group, all but one have been in the group for the entire three years. The class has an enviable scholastic record, almost always leading the 9'A class in members on the Honor Roll. The 9A-4's have enjoyed their years at Lincoln and have been well represented in 9A activities. Ten members of the Annual club are from this group. The 9A-5's began their Lincoln career under the guidance of Miss Mandeville. The next year they were transferred to Mr. Flanders. The group has been active in all school affairs. The 9A-6 have talent and school spirit. The latter is evidenced by their being one hundred per cent subscribers to both the Linrnln Loy and the Amina! during their last semester in school. The 9A-7's are perhaps best known for their athletic powers. Last year the girls of the class won the kick-ball tournament. Stanley Stasica, a leader in athletics, is a member of the group as is Stanley Cieliesz, another of our leading athletes. The group has always supported all school enterprises and is noted for its pep and enthusiasm. The 9A-8 group is another one that is noted for its fine enthusiasm and loyalty. They have always been well represented in all school activities. The members of the 9A-9 have been added to and subtracted from until only twenty-two of the original members remain. Everyone hopes to go to high school and to carry on the line work he did at Lincoln. The 9'A-10's are an energetic group, This is not surprising with Miss VVhittle as their teacher. The 9A-11's and their teacher, Miss Gibson, entered Lincoln at the same time. They all feel very much at home now and hate to leave Lincoln as they once dreaded entering it. The 9A-l2's, 13's, l4's, and 15's entered Lincoln in the 9B grade. They came from schools in the territory surrounding Rockford. Although they have not been here long, they have been leaders in the class. The treasurer, Iris Olson, is a typical representative of these groups. Page 64 Dick Blewtielrl. Miss Lee.

HI NSI BXQ I E 0 ORQANIZAT' 1936 LINCOLN ANNUAL ORGANIZATIONS Clubs and organizations form a most interesting and important part in the school life at Lincoln. Although only forty-five minutes every Friday afternoon is devoted to them, most of the pleasures and activities are sponsored by our clubs. Most of us look forward to club period on Friday. What is your hobby? ls it knitting, singing, collecting stamps, or writing? No matter what kind of hobby you possess, you will doubtless find a club in which to meet with others with similar interests. There are about fifty of these clubs in Lincoln, and all of them take part in the activities of the school. The clubs deal with the development of talents, with service to the school, with increasing of knowledge, and with special interests ot' various sorts. First there are the clubs devoted to the different publications of the school. There are three of these: The Lincoln Log Club, the Bit 0' Science Club, and the Amina! Club. The Student Council is an organization made up oi representatives from every home room in the school. It is under the guidance of Miss Bowman, the assistant principal. The group meets twice a month during the home room period. At these meetings the members discuss the various problems that come to their attention. Here problems of certain home room activities are brought, arrangements for Christmas baskets are made, plans for the direction of guests at visiting night are arranged. One of the most arduous and at the same time most useiul of the Council's duties is that of the Lost and Found Department. To a room devoted to the purpose all of the articles found throughout the school are sent. Each morning before school, members of the Council are found on duty, answering inquiries regard- ing lost articles. The Council has furnished members who act as monitors in the auditorium during the lunch periods. Frequently members serve as ushers at entertainments and at guest day at school. The officers this year were as follows: First Semester Second Smizestei' Betty Nelson ......... .........,...... P resident ..,.... ........ V iola Liberatori Leslie Hughes ........, ............,..

W illiam Lundahl The Girls' Operetta Club has forty-six members. Dorothy Brown is the president, Jane Freding, secretary, and Elsa Reali, treasurer.

Miss Larson is the director. The Girls' Glee Club also takes part in the Christmas vesper service and the operetta. There are fifty-tive members in this club.

During the first semester Kenneth Bird gained special recogni- tion for his piano playing. VVe have many budding young actors in our school.

The ofncers are: Marjory Anderson, president, Stanley Phillips, vice-presidentg Frank Middleton, secretaryg and Lloyd Nicholson, treasurer. Mr. Baron is the sponsor. Among the outstanding members are: Mar- gpryl Anderson, Ruth Grenberg, Lucille Miller, Frank Middleton, Stanley Phillips, and Duane au son. Do you like to swim? If you do, why not join one of the swimming clubs? In these clubs, the pupils improve their swimming strokes, learn dives, and develop their athletic prowess. The girls and boys take turns in the use of the pool. During the alternate club periods, they join the respective athletic clubs for sports. Miss Garde is the sponsor of the Girls' Swimming Club, while Mr. Nutting advises the Boys' Swimming. The athletic clubs are very popular, The girls play basketball, kickball, and baseball, The boys play baseball, football, and basketball.

Paul Gustafson, an outstanding member, is presidentg Louis Rossi is the vice-president, and Bengt Sandstrom is the secretary and treasurer. The future forest rangers are enrolled in the Forestry Club under Mr. Fo-ss' guidance. The chief forester is Sigurd Anderson, and the forest clerk is Edward Coutts. Altogether there are thirty members, who spend their time together in the study of trees. An interesting and helpful project was the arrangement of a forestry display in one of the hall display cases. Have you noticed the large number of girls in the halls and classes wearing jiffy sweaters? Did you know that the girls made these for themselves? VVouldn't you like one of them? Why not join one of the three knitting clubs and learn how to make them? One of these clubs under Miss Kintzel's direction is composed of eighth grade girls.

Mrs. VVcstring is the adviser of this club of thirty-two members. The purpose of the Needlecraft Club is to appreciate and develop skill in needle work.

They are making samplers, those pretty pieces of needle-work that imitate the work of the girls of long, long ago. Maxine Johnson is the president, and Evelyn Polkowski is the secretary. To give boys interested in making things out of metal a chance to do so is the purpose of the Art Metal Club, an organization of thirty members.

Page 69 l936 LINCOLN ANNUAL ORGANIZATIONS The Cabinet Club has thirty members, boys who are interested in woodwork. During the club period the boys work on their projects.

This club under Miss Hyzer's leadership has for its purpose the increasing of interest in creative writing. The club has a membership of only thirteen, but believing in the old adage that quality, not quantity, is of the greatest importance, they are very certain that theirs is a most important group. Many of the poems in the poetry section of this book are the products of this club. The Crayon Cloth Design Club has twenty-nine members. The purpose of the club is to make articles with a good design, such as wall hangings, waste baskets, and pictures.

Therefore, we are happy to have a Scout Club in our school. The club has thirty-eight members, who spend their club periods studying the principles of scouting. One notable service the club does is the care of the school flag. Every morning and evening, one may see two members of the Scout Club raise or lower the Hag in front of the building.

By far the largest club in the school is the Library Club under the direction of Miss Seal and Miss Lilas Larson. This club has a membership of ninety-eight. They meet in the library each Friday during club period and spend the time in reading and study. This club appeals especially to those whose work does not permit their frequent presence in the library. One type of clubs perhaps not so popular as others are the Opportunity Clubs. Opportunity Clubs are organized for most of the departments of the school where people in need of help may secure it. These clubs are especially helpful to those people who because of illness have been absent from their classes and rind themselves behind their classmates in their work. The club time is spent in study. Page 71 l936 LINCOLN ANNUAL THE ANNUAL Some of the tirst semester filllllltll stuff at work. The flflizmll, of which this is the ninth number, is issued eaeh year during the last week of school. In this way the work and the play of the entire year is summarized in a form convenient to keep. The days when the books are issued are busy ones, with everyone eagerly looking for certain pictures or collecting the autographs of his friends. The school likes and supports the year book. For example, there are over seventeen hundred copies ordered this year. This means that most of the families of the school have a copy. The compilation of the book is a good example of co-operation. It is prepared by the Al11111111l Club, a club composed of members of the ninth grade class, Each member contributes material uhile committees take their offered material, select from it the usable portions, and prepare them for the book.

In the third issue following this, the present name appeared. There has been no change in name since that time. There have been four advisers. Miss Ballard was in charge of it at First, then, Miss Rudolphg next, Miss Hiland: and then, Miss Fitzgerald who is in charge of it at present. The purpose of the paper is to record all school news, feature events of the school, record the jokes that occur in the school, present literary productions of the pupils, and give accounts of other junior high schools.

The members of the staff study and write on various topics with the result that a most enjoyable and instructive paper is produced. There is no rcgular date of publication, so the paper is doubly welcome when it comes as a surprise. NVith Miss Prien as the capable adviser the following staff are in charge: Phyllis johnson and Helen Ekberg. Page 75 1936 LINCOLN ANNUAL STUDENT COUNCI L-FI RST SEM ESTER Row Row Row Ro w 1: Z: 3: 4.

Page 90 l936 LINCOLN s i y X., .. l l ANNUAL OUR TEAM Stanley Stasica is the captain of our invincible basketball team. lle is also secretary of the 9A class. He was voted the most popular boy in the class and the one who has done the most for the school. Stas is a real athlete, as he goes in for basketball and football in the fall and winter, and golf, baseball, track, and swimming in the summer. His ambition is to become a coach, and with his interests of today, he will probably be a successful one. Clifford Bergquist, better known as "Hippy," is six feet tall and weighs one hundred and seventy pounds. He is interested in ice-skating and swimming as well as in basket- ball. He does not plan to devote his career to athletics, however. Clifford played for- ward on the school team. Richard Mclifntce was a member of our basket-ball team before his graduation from Lincoln in February. Dick is five feet six inches tall and weighs a hundred and thirty pounds. Dick is interested in football as well as basket-ball. He played forward on the school team and was a consistent point winner. Robert, 'fBob," Brown played center on the basket-ball team. Bob left Lincoln in january and his position was filled by Edward Coutts. He was also a member of the track team of 1935. His graduation has prevented him from starring on the track team this year. Bob was also known throughout the school as an excellent boxer. Henry Hedlund, better known as "Hank," was guard on the basketball team this year and was a very good one. Hank was also on the swimming team. He was the best backstroke swimmer that Lincoln had. He was one of the two men on the swim- ming team to win a letterg this gave him two major letters this year.

Track and Field Prospects After four years of defeat handed to us by Roosevelt, Lincoln has a good chalice to beat its rivals. The defeats in the past have not always been because of lack of material in Lincoln, our men have been forced to compete with such outstanding men as Packard, now one of the best sprinters Rockford High School has ever had. For the lirst time in the history of track competition between the two junior high schools, the track stars will have an opportunity to show their ability at the high school stadium where a track has recently been completed for track and Held events. Lincoln seems to stand all excellent chance of winning the meet this year because of the veterans on the squad. ln the half mile jess Darden and Stanley Cieliesz, who are quite well matched, are ex- pected to give Roosevelt a good trimming at the half mile. Morris Bianchi and George Mc- Connell are very promising prospects in the dashes. The shot put will be represented by Clifford Bergquist and Edward Couttsg Coutts put the shot forty-six feet in the first week of practice. ln the broad jump Hubert Burgess and Edward Coutts will pit their ability against the broad jumpers of the rival school. The meet, May 20th, is waited for with much interest and hope by our school. l1Ve feel that we have one of the best teams we have had in a number of years and have, therefore, a good chalice of victory. Lrzfez'-Lincoln won the meet by a score of 47-21.

These are the intra-mural teams. U In the fall Mr. Nutting started an intra-mural football league divided among the classes in three groups: the seventh, eighth, and ninth grades. As soon as a class lost two games, it was dropped from the league. After the Thanksgiving vacation the intra-mural basketball leagues started. Three leagues were formed: the heavy-weight league, consisting of twelve teams, and two light-weight leagues, consisting of twelve teams each. Because of Hagging interest toward the end of the season, the games were cut by two. Illinois and VVisconsin, that were tied at the end of the season in the heavy-weight division, played for the championship, and Illinois won. Duke and Cornell in the lighteweight division, that won in each of their leagues, played for the light- weight championshipg Duke won the game. During the past few years at the end of the seasons class teams were chosen representing the three classes, seventh, eighth, and ninth. This year the ninth grade undoubtedly had the best team, so Mr. Nutting chose eight boys from the Lincoln basket-ball squad to captain teams and get any players they could providing they did not secure more than seven besides them- selves. After hotly contested battles, the team captained by George Stites won from the team selected by Edward Coutts. The final game was an exciting one which ended with a score of IO to 9. Ralph Tuminskas assumed the her0's role when he made a basket from the floor with ten seconds left to play. In the light-weight league they chose class teams and played their rounds with the 8A's defeating the 8B's by a score of 9 to 6. As the 1411111101 goes to press, the baseball league is under way divided into six leagues, one for each class. These games attract much attention, and are well attended by both pupils and teachers. Often the windows of rooms are lined with faces of pupils inside class rooms longing to get out to the games. I ill Off For a Good Swim Page 95 I 936 LINCOLN ANNUAL GIRLS' ATHLETICS Although girls do not compete in athletics outside ot' school, it does not mean there is a lack of interest in sports and games. There are a number of tournaments among the girls within the school. First, there is kick-ball, a favorite game among the girls. Every year a tournament is held. This year the winners were the 9A-l's. After the kick-ball tournament is over, volley ball comes into its popularity. Teams were selected from those making the most points in class, and a tournament was held. The winning team was as follows: Britta Norin, Capt., Barbara Caldwell, Margaret Picavet, Jane Ann Campbell, Shirley Maynard. The next tournament was one held among the seven B classes-bat-ball. There was much rivalry and much excitement during the tournament. Basket-ball is a favorite sport among the ninth graders. We were able to play only nine court basket-ball in class, but those who were interested were allowed to play after school on every Thursday afternoon, at which time the girls played regular basket-ball. In our school everyone takes swimming in 8Ag thus everyone leaving Lincoln should know how to swim. Girls especially take a great interest in this sport, and many go in after school to swim for their own pleasure. Many excellent divers gain their practice in our delightful pool. The swimming teachers are available at all times for help in learning new strokes and new dives. With spring comes baseball, a game in which the girls take as much interest as the boys. A tournament is held each year, and much rivalry is shown for the glory of winnnig the coveted name of victor.

VVe had the honor of having an exhibit there for several days. Some of our members acted as hosts: others demonstrated some of the work of the school. The members of the Xilllllllll staff used many methods to raise the money necessary to Finance this book. One of the most popular and happily received methods was that of the tally apple sales, These were usually held on Friday. On the second floor is a very tall rubber tree that attracts much attention. The light halls and rooms are attractive places for plants, so many of our rooms are made more pleasant because of them. YVhen the bell rings for the hrst lunch hour, a rush is made for the cafeteria on the third floor. This scene of hungry people seeking food is repeated in each of the following three lunch periods. Because of the large number eating in the cafeteria, it was necessary to open a second cold lunch room in the basement.

"Hand it in tonight!" "Don't ask questions nowlu "This isn't done quite right!" "Close your noteluookll' "Sit in your own seat!"

VVhile taking your rest, Nothing will harm you, You're safe in your nest. Peep! Peep! Go to sleep! -Muriel Moore, 8Bf7, THE OLD PEDDLER There was a man old and grey VVho peddled vegetables every day, And the children would throw stones, and say, "Get away, old man, get away!" And once when he was going down the street, An automobile knocked him off his feet, .ind he went home, and got some sleep, And in a few hours was on his feet. He moved to a farm where he could stay, And not be bothered all the day. He planted corn, and he planted hay, He said not a thing: he had nothing to say. And once again he was walking the street VVhen an automobile He went to a hospital And never again did knocked him off his feet. while he was asleep, he walk on his feet. -Joseph Triolo. TQ?

Asbestos. Page 105 A LITTLE LIMERICK NOW AND THEN IS WRITTEN BY THE BEST OF MEN A certain high school named Lincoln Requires a great deal of thinkin' The school it is fine - And the teachers divine Until in your grades you're sinkin'. Tn our class is a president named VVayne, lle's neither a Swede nor a Dane. A jolly young lad VVho never seems sad, And seems to have a keen brain. There's an assistant principal who's no showinan, Still oft through the halls she does roamin', She has a nice stride And a dignified pride, And so you're introduced to Miss Bowman. There's a science teacher named Foss, To his classes he pretends to be cross. But he's a merry lad, XVho cannot get mad: And so the class is its own boss. There was a fellow named Gusty NN hose brains were indeed very rusty: But he came to Lincoln And there started thinkin, And now he's a smart fellow, this Gusty. -Billy Sharp. There are many harmful kinds of bacteria, But none in our school cafeteria. Itls clean and it's neat XVith good things to eat, ls our Lincoln school cafeteria. -Dorothy Carlson. .Xt Lincoln therc's a teacher named Lee As nice as a teacher can be. She sits there with a smile At the pupils all the while, She's the class adviser, you see. There's a hoy in our school wlio's astounding, His supply ot' big words is ahoundingg He is very aloof And dreams, forsooth, Of a brand new word he's begun hounding, Heis been acting diigferently lately, His manner is even more stately: He looks at the skyg And I well know why, He's missing his girl friend sedately. He's the Romeo of all time, As a 'over hels in his prime' When he was Thisbe 4 And said. "Oh, kiss me," His cherry lips, I wish they were mine. Xfhen in club she attempted to knit, XX ee Marion nigh had a iitg For her yarn became knotted A And when the clock she spotted, She gladly put yarn away and quit. VVhile her yarn she tried to untangle, The warning bell began to jangleg Her face grew quite white, i And her chums in their tlight Saw her dash with her knitting adangle. There once was a fat girl named Kate Vfho was trying' to learn how to skate: She thought she was "hot," But we knew she was not. And Kate became Kate, the late, Robert, a very small boy, Likes Marion, really a toy: He calls her a shrimp, And how she does primp For this name from him gives her joy. There's a certain high school named Lincoln Whose pupils have a habit of winkin'5 Theylre really not bad , And we're very glad l'hey've sometimes a habit of thinkin'. 10...- RUSHIN' Rushin' to the classroom, rushin' out to eat, Rushin' home, rushin' back, Rushm' down the street. Rushin' in and rushin' out. Say! WVhat's all this rushin' for? VN'hat's it all about? -Rex Caster. Page l936 LINCOLN ANNUAL MOTHER GOOSE UP T0 DATE Peter, Peter, pumpkin eater, Had a wife and couldn't keep her. Put her in a pumpkin shell, And now of his divorce he will have to tell. Little Betty Blue Lost her holiday shoe. VVhat shall little Betty do? She is not sad: In fact she's glad For now her shoe will be new. The Queen of Hearts She made some tarts, All on a summer's day. The Knave ot Hearts He stole those tarts. His trial comes up today. The King of Hearts Thought of those tarts, And sued the Knave for more. The Knave of Hearts 'fasted those tarts And wondered what he'd stolen them for. VN'hat is every boy made of? Bits of tacks and big cats' tails, Spiders, sugar, sunshine, and spice. That is just why they're so nice! Multiplication is vexationg Division is as bad. The rules and such do bother me, For algebra drives me mad. lack Sprat could eat no fat, His wife could eat no leang And hetwixt two ot them The dietitian went quite mad. As Tommy Snuoks and Bessie Brooks Ufere walking out one Sunday, Said Tommy Snooks to Bessie Brooks "Could you advance me a quarter 'til Monday?" There's many a girl who has a curl Right in the middle of her forehead. But they're not natural, I'll tell you that, They're the result of a machine so torrid. Hickory, Dickory, Dock! The mouse ran up the clock. The clock struck one and down he run For he heard Iunior's key in the lock. Little Boy Blue, come hlow your horn, The shee-p's in the meadow, the cow's in the corn. YVhere's the little boy who looks after the sheep? He's at the store where candy's cheap. There was an old woman who lived in a shoe: She haddso many children she didn't know what to o. She decided to place them under rule, Much to the dismay oi the teacher in school. Mary had a little lamb lts Heece was white as snow. - But now that Heece is a sweater, for Thatls the way such things go. Little Miss Muffet Sat on a tuffet Eating her curds and whey. Along came a spider And sat down beside her, And said, "How about a hand-out today?" Bobby Shaftoels fat and fair, Comhing down his yellow hair, But he seems to be to me An awful sissy for the sea. There's a neat little clock In the school room it stands, And it points to the time NVith its two little hands. lt is the object of each pupil's eyes Every minute throughout the day, And if someone says he loves it, he lies. lt's just that he's aching to get away. O-Priscilla XVaishnor. LITTLE NED Little Ned His prayers said, Jumped in bed. Bumped his head. VVoke up dead. -Adeline Nelson. 106 1936 LINCOLN ANNUAL SCHOOL CALENDAR SEPTEMBER 9. School has started!
