We know that school is more than thatg it is life itself. In this book we are going to show that our school life this year has been full of work, pleasures, interests, cares, and growth just as have been the lives of those who have left their school days behind them.

Mr. H. C. Muth, our Principal, came to us this year, he was no stranger to us, however, for he had been the principal of the Theodore Roosevelt junior High School for several years. Mr. Muth is much interested in all our activities- our careers, our play, our welfare. and our interests. Miss Bowman has been the Assist- ant Principal of our school since its organization: she knows each of us and is always in- terested in our well-being. To her we go with many of our problems and plansg she is always ready to help us. Miss Hornke, Miss Southam, and Miss Born in the general of- lice attend to questions of attendance, excuses for delays in reaching classes, bus tickets, and information about the school in general. To Miss Dagnan, our school nurse, we go when we return to school after an absence caused by illness and when during the school day we develop any of the aches and pains to which we are prone. She assists Dr. Quantlt, the school physician, in the examination of pupils to see that each is in condi- tion to pursue his school work. Miss Seal, our librarian, is always prepared with in- formation and advice about books and reading material. She supervises the ninth grade study periods in the library. The large staff of teachers and supervisors direct our class, home room, and extra- curricular activities.

The course consists of one simple course in sewing, the 7Bg one in cooking, the 7,-X1 and one in home management, SB. Although this is all that is required, those who are really in- terested continue in one or both of the divisions of the course by taking sewing or cook- ing in the eighth and ninth grades. In sewing, the 7B's have the joy of making the equipment they use in the foods class the second semester-a head hand, a pot holder, a bag, and an apron, In the course in home management, good manners, budgeting, and a hundred and one other things nec- essary to the successful management of a home are taught. The eighth grade sewing course is a special delight to those who want to indulge in the present craze for knitting. Here the girls knit for themselves sweaters, dresses, and suits. They learn to crochet. too. However, the real thrill for the young dressmaker comes in clothing I where she makes two cotton projects, and in clothing II where she makes one silk and one wool project. For the hostesses of the present and of the future the SA foods teaches the preparation of school lunches and dinners. In foods I the course continues with the prep- aration of breakfasts and lunches, going on, in foods II, with dinners and party special- ties. The grand climax to the course comes with a tea for our mothers in May. It is the aim of this department to give a foundation knowledge of all branches of home making. It is educationalg it is also very interesting and enjoyable. XYe are pre- paring ior the future, and we are profiting in the present.

A MOST PRACTICAL PHASE OF OUR LIVES-THE COMMERCIAL Mr. Baron, Miss Broderick Miss Belts, Miss Kintzel The commercial course is divided into two parts, business practice and typing. Those who take the whole business course begin with a year of business practice. ln this course. we study the many forms and features of business from the standpoint of the office worker, VVe study the various departments of a business organization, the methods of sending money, the use of the telephone and telegraph in business, the different kinds of insur- ance, and-most enjoyable and interesting of all-filing. Typing is perhaps the most popular elective offered in our school. The nrst semese ter's study consists of a study of operating the typewriter and the forms of typing busi- ness letters. In the second semester we have gained sufficient skill in the use of the machine to enable us to type many kinds of materials. We do not confine our work to exercises and drill, but we use our skill in a most practical manner by typing our social science, general science, and English papers, VVe find our teachers enjoy this, since they often have difficulty deciphering our writing. By the time we have finished our course, we have gained sufficient skill to be able to use a typewriter in an acceptable manner. Our junior high school commercial work is of importance to us in a number of ways. Many of us intend to embark upon business careers and shall continue the study in senior high school. VVe find that our junior high school work is of great value to us in these plans. lt will be of great assistance to us whether we intend to continue our work or not, for we know how valuable we shall find our knowledge of business in our everyday life. Everyone must come into Contact with some business problems. VVe know it helps us in the development of the qualities of character necessary for success and acquaints us with the business world. As is the case with all our work in junior high school, our work in the commercial department is of immediate use to us. We are able to do much neater, more accurate work because of this training. Those of us who take typing find that we can do much better work in preparing notebooks and class papers by typing them. A Typing II Class is Practicing U21 WE ALWAYS NEED MATHEMATICS Mrs. Loveland, Miss Murtfeldt, Mr. Erb, Miss XVorster, Miss Smith Miss Burchheld. Miss Laura Larson, Miss Koller, Miss Frankenburg VVe all take mathematics in the seventh and eighth grades. In the seventh grade we learn about graphs and their uses: we also have geometry when we learn design and the nature of geometry. VVe also measure surfaces and solids. In the eighth grade we learn the meaning and use of percent in business, VVe also have banking and interest, budgets, and a study of thrift. In the ninth grade many of us want to continue mathematics, so we elect algebra. VVe learn the fundamental principles and processes of algebra, in- cluding positive ancl negative numbers and problem-solving. The course in mathematics will be of great use to us in the future. VVe realize that measurement is a very important factor in making possible modern inventions, modern machines, and modern science. VVe are able to appreciate and to enjoy the many dif- ferent shapes and geometric forms in our homes and out of doors. We know how to read maps and locate points on them. VVe know how to read, interpret, and make gra VVe know the meaning of important key words of business - Mathematics work makes it possible for us to solve the mathematical prbb ms the basis of many occupations, and it creates an interest i ur futur life , 'e meet in our daily lives and in our school work, It makes us realize that the .5 'cs S .

During the first semester a part of the auditorium period is devoted to this study. In the second semester we have a regular general science class. During these three years spent in the study of science we become acquainted with many facts: we learn to appreciate facts and to realize that sci- ence demands facts, not mere belief. ln 7A, we study about our immediate surroundings. a course which includes a study of air, heat, and fire. VVe also study about stimulants and narcotics and their effect upon the body. ln the eighth grade we study about the stars, and planets, as well as the various chemical elements with their symbols. That is, We have an introductory course in astronomy and chemistry. In the ninth grade we have biology. During the first semester we study general biology, and in the second semester we study human biology. General science has opened a new world to us. XVe look forward to senior high school where we can continue our study of that phase of science which most appeals to us. VVe have discovered the fascination of the study of man's achievements in discovery, experi- mentation, and invention in the fields of science. VVe have found our reading interests much enlarged, since we find so many books and magazines telling wonderful stories of the miracles of science. VVe have learned the value of good health and the laws of healthful living. XVe have learned many first aid practices, thus gaining a knowledge that we often can use. Vl'e have learned how to select our diet and how to avoid harmful foods and practices of eating. It is the practical aspect of science that is the most important factor to us at present. Our knowledge of our bodies and their care, of our surroundings and of how to adapt our- selves to them helps us to live the healthful, efficient lives we should live. ment.

We studied longitude, latitude, and sun time, exploration in the jungle: and the raising of cocoa, rubber, and coffee. Most of us found this very interesting. VVhen we at last reached 7A, we began the story of the settling of the new world. VVe studied about Columbus, Diaz, and DeSoto. VVe learned about the French and Indian Wars, the VVar of 1812, and other exciting events. Many boys acquired the exploring fever, and I remember how we all envied Bill and Sam when they explored the creek, they were the heroes of our class for the next two weeks. In SB we saw how our government grew. VVe saw how the Declaration of Indea pendence and the Constitution were formed and drawn up. VVe studied about some' of the famous men-VVashington, Hancock, and Alexander. In SA there was an interesting period in which we studied about the settling of the VVest, the Indian massacres, and the exciting adventures of George Rogers Clark, Daniel Boone, and the other frontier heroes. Then we studied the XVorld VVar. VVe learned how the United States helped the Other countries and how proud we were of her! VVe also realized how terrible the war was. and how much it cost in lives and money, In 9B we really had fun. VVe talked about the health, fire, and police departments of our city. VVe read about tire and police heroes who risked their lives to save others. I liked best the story of the immigrants, their edu- cation, naturalization, and Americanization. In 9A, we, of course, made our Career Books. The boy who made his on Millinery probably won't have his dream realized, but it's fun to hope he will. XVe learned about government, courts, and the running of city, state, and national governments. Altogether, the social science work has been most helpful and most enjoyable. VVe realize that our work in social science in junior high school prepares us for our future study, that its prnnary purpose is training us to become good citizens. Neverthe- less, we claim that it is of very great importance in our lives today. The problems discussed are problems of importance to us. VVe hear with anxiety the talk of possible wars, we know the difficulties of the financial depression. XVe are very much interested in planning our careers and in learning the opportunities open to us. VVe have in our own school community many of the problems that confront the city and national governments in a far vaster form. We profit from our work in social sci- ence in working out our problems. Miss Ellis's Class Holds a Trial U51 The SA 5 Literature Class Gives an lilfcctive Performance of The Knave of Hearts ENGLISH-A COMBINATION OF WORK AND PLAY Miss Rudolph, Miss Hickey Cotta Our work in English is a combination of the study of literature and practice in self expression in composition. ln literature we read widely from the literature of people from ancient times to those of today, VVe become familiar with the books that all educated people seem to know: we become acquainted with the names and some of the works of authors of America and of other countries: we learn more and more the value of reading as a great source of pleasure, ln our composition work we write many themes of differ- ent types. XVe practice writing letters of the kind that we are most likely to need to write. XYe have practice in talking to our classmates, giving talks which receive the most severe type of criticism-that of our schoolmates. VVe know how important our work in English is in our preparation for future study and for future life. XYe know that reading is a skill without which other study is ini- possibleg we know that the ability to express ourselves simply and clearly is a prime factor in the success of our careers both in school and out of it. Yet our English work is not taken only for the future. It is most important in our lives right now. ln our study of literature we have increased our fondness for reading. We have become acquainted with many books to which hitherto we have been strangers, from which we derive much entertainment and pleasure. VVe have learned to read and to enjoy poetry and drama. VVe have discovered our talent for acting in the drama and literature classes. Vile find that our practice in composition enables us to write and speak more easily and expressively in other classes. VVe are happy to realize that we are eliminating many of our more flagrant misnses of our language, for we recognize the value of good speech and the effect that it has on other people. Some of us have discov- ered that we have ability in creative work that we had not before realized, some of us have written excellent poetry and prose. l16l Miss Hyzer, Mr. likeberg, Miss Burr Miss Ballard, Miss Gibson, Miss Olander Miss Geddes, Miss Hiland. Miss Broderick Miss Condon, Miss Zwolanek Miss PART OF OUR CULTURAL LIFE-FOREIGN LANGUAGE Miss Zwolanek, Mrs. Bogen 1 In the eighth grade when many of us took a course in general language, we had our first taste of the foreign languages taught in Lincoln. The first half of the course con- sisted of a study of Latin and French, by which we gained a knowledge of the people, their customs, and their life as well as of the language. In the second part of the course we had a similar study of Spanish and German. VVe made note books and mapsg we studied the newspapers for interesting topics about these people. By the time we had finished the course, most of us knew which language we desired to learn. In the ninth grade we began our study of the particular language we had chosen: most of us intend to continue its study in senior high school. VVQ know this study of a foreign language will be helpful to us in many ways. Many of us expect to go to college and are preparing for it by this study, Those of us who hope to become doctors, law- yers, teachers, scientists, or writers know we need a knowledge of other languages as well as of our own. Of course, some of us found that we are not adept at learning a foreign language and are glad that we have found this fact out in junior high school so that we can better plan our high school work with less loss of time and effort. However, it is not only for the future that we study a foreign language. We Find it a great help and enjoyment for the present. We find that our English is made easier by an understanding of other languages and of their construction. VVe have much greater interest in foreign affairs because of our study of foreign people. VVe confess to a pleasure in being able to speak even a few phrases in another language and look forward to trying our knowledge on some waiter. VVe enjoy the fun of translating and under- standing the stories in our Latin, French, or Spanish readers. Altogether, we feel that our time in our foreign language class is time well spent. caballero. l17l A Spanish class is enjoying a story of a gay MUSIC-A CULTURAL INCIDENT IN OUR LIVES The purpose of all musical education within the school is to have us live more richly and successfully through contributing musical experiences. These experiences arc the IlSt6Il1Hg, the performing, and the creating of music in the bclief that it will mean most to us and others now and later. Through our music department we rcccive entertainment as well as education. VVhen we had completed our required music work in seventh grade, many of us dis- covered that we had talent and that we should like more musical training. Therefore. we elected advanced music courses. At present we have four elective music courses. Music l, II, III, and IV. The last named course, Music IV, has been only recently added. During the year we have, as usual, given two popular performances, the Christmas concert and the operetta. The Cvlee Clubs and the Girls' Operetta Club also participated in these performances. The Christmas concert, given on the Sunday before the holidays began, was attended by a large audience. A beautiful cantata, in keeping with the spirit of Christmas, was given. Later this cantata was presented to the school in Christmas assemblies, On the day on which school closed, the music department furnished a group of carolers, who strolled through the corridors singing the lovely old Christmas carols. I The great event of the year, musically, was the operetta, Penny Buns and Roses, given April twenty-first and twenty-second at matinee performances and April twenty- third at an evening performance to which a large crowd of parents and friends came. Radio broadcasts over VVROK were happy events for many of us. VVe sang various types of music nl order to acquaint the radio audience with the wide range of songs we sing. Like all of our work in junior high, music helps to prepare us for life in the future: like all the work, it is of even greater importance in making our present life successful. VVC are developing our talents, we are becoming better listeners to music performed by others, and we are finding much pleasure in creating music. The band and orchestra, very important divisions of our musical life, are discussed in the section devoted to entertainments. A rehearsal for a broadcast. f13l Mr. Elmquist.

WE ARE INTERESTED IN ART VVhcn we first arrived at Lincoln as 7B's, we found that we had to take art. Some of us liked it: others didnt Duriii the seventh grade we did some painting, made pencil drawings, linoleum blocks, and did some lettering. Those of us who liked the course, continued in the eighth and ninth grades by taking Art I, II, III, and IV. VVe found these courses quite different from seventh grade art work. VVe found a great variety of things to do. A few of the activities which went on in these classes were pen lettering. block printing, and poster making. VVho knows? Maybe some of us will become great painters or sculptors. Our ex- perience in landscape painting and in soap carving will aid us a great deal if we choose one of these careers. Artistic talent always proves a great asset at any time. In home making or interior decorating, we need good taste in choosing color and design. There is some need for a sense of artistic design in almost every occupationg we need only think of the designing of automobiles, clothes, furniture, to mention only a few instances to realize our use of training in design. XVe should, however. think of the present as well as of the future. VYe have much use for our art training in nearly all of our school subjects. In social science there is always some cartooning to be done. VVhcn we make our career books, we have special use for our art work. In general science we hnd much need for our talent in drawing. Many of thc girls have to design their own clothes in household art courses, while the boys find as many demands for their art training in mechanical drawing and machine shop courses. lNe value our art work for the pleasure it gives us as well as for the use it is to us. NVe like to make beautiful pictures-to express ourselves in this way: we find much more enjoyment in the beauty of paintings. of nature, of design because of our un- derstanding and practice in art. Art is an important part in the lives of many of us. i19l An Art Class engaged in its many activities A VERY PRACTICAL PART OF LIFE-INDUSTRIAL ARTS Mr. Skinner, Mr. Hintz, Mr. Schade Mr. Clow, Mr. Fowler, Mr. Middleton The industrial arts program in our school offers courses in priming in 7B, mechan- ical drawing in 7A, home mechanics in SB, wood shop in SA, automotive in 9B, and ma- chine shop in 9A. ln wood shop and home mechanics units in carpentry and electricity are included. XVOrking with tools to build something useful is a desire that all boys have at some time. In building or making projects we boys acquire skill in the use of common tools which will later in life help us to enter and make progress in industryg this skill will also help us to perform many of the activities about the house, basement, garage, garden, yard, and motor car. The knowledge of materials and construction gained while making projects in our shops gives us boys an appreciation of good material and workmanship. This training later in life will aid us in being more intelligent consumers of the products of modern industry. Possibly the greatest benefit obtained by taking industrial arts courses is the experi- ence We gain while taking work in any of the shops. As we go through the program we should be able to decide for ourselves whether we like or do not like the work in any particular shop. It is just as important for us boys to Find out that we do not like a certain kind of shop as to discover that we are specially adapted to a certain work. These experiences will help us in selecting our shop courses at senior high school where we can specialize in the work we wish to contine after graduation. XVhen we sum up our work in industrial arts we discover we have gained the fol- lowing: a skill in the use of common tools, a pride and interest in our ability to do things, an appreciation of good material and workmanship. habits of orderly and methodical pro- cedure in a given task. aid in acquiring skill for our occupations in the future. a knowl- edge of the possibilities of various trades, an understanding and appreciation of the work' ingman and his work.

It is quite unlike the work in any other classroom, for here the work is mostly play. ln the fall the seventh grade boys play out of doors most of the time. Such sports as foot ball, pass touch football, and running engage the classes. A home room league in pass-touch foot- ball is organized and adds much to the interest and excitement. The girls play kickball, bat ball, volley soccer, volley ball, and have tumbling and dancing classes, In the winter the boys have formal drill and marching, basket ball, tumbling, games, relays, hand soccer, and various games making use of basket balls. During the winter an intra-mural basketball league is formedg the playing oft of these games is an exciting experience. The girls continue their work which they started in the fall. They have contests between classes in the different games and work up a great deal of skill and en- thusiasm for team sports. . In the spring as soon as the weather permits the boys are again out of doors. Base- ball probably plays the most important part in their sport program with track events a close second. A home room baseball league is formed which produces as much interest as did the basket ball tournament in the winter. The girls also play baseball, at the same time continuing their games of kickball, basketball, volley ball, volley soccer, and their work in dancing and tumbling. The eighth grade classes all take swimming. Each pupil is tested when he enters the class to determine the degree of proficiency that he has already acquired. He strives during the year to improve from that place. VVork in swimming, diving, and life saving is given.

A large group of frightened, cowed seventh graders sat in the auditorium one Febru- ary day in l934, waiting to see what the next few minutes would bring them. Mr. Hanna, the principal, talked to us about the school and our part in it. Then he read the names of our groups for home rooms. Then did we feel forlorn, for many of us who had been to- gether for six years now found ourselves separated, claimed by strange teachers who led us through the halls to rooms which we were told were to be our home rooms for the next three years. Here we signed our names, were shown our programs, and were then escorted through the long corridors of the three floors of Lincoln to be shown our class- rooms. How strange it all was to us then! How strange it all is now that we ever thought it so dreadful and incomprehensiblel VVe loved those first days in spite of our uncertainty, for weren't we in high school? VVeren't we ever so much more important than those little children still going to grade school? We probably made the same mis- takes that all newcomers make, but now we have quite forgotten them. We enjoyed the operetta, the 9A play, the many entertainments, and the coming of the ANNUAL to which we had looked forward before we came to Lincoln. VVhen we returned in the fall, we were safe in the assurance that comes to the 7A's and were ready to laugh at the poor little freshies who were so stupid. The year passed happily and uneventfully except for the epidemic of measles which some of us rather enjoyed. In eighth grade we made our first choice of electives, then we tasted the Hrst sweet joys of the freedom of high school. When we returned to school in the fall, we were saddened to learn that one of the eighth grade teachers, Miss Stone, had died during the summer. WVe all missed her, those of us who had her in home room and those of us who had music with her. It felt wonderful to be 93's-the pleasure of being a real high school classg it felt wonderful and a little fearful, we had heard of those awful ordeals of the ninth grade- finals and intelligence tests. They aren't so bad after all, was the relieved comment of most of the class. 9A'sl A class play, party, and celebration galore! We elected Miss Broderick as our class adviser, and a fine one she has made. When the time came for the election of officers, there was much excitement. We had a class meeting at which the various candidates appeared, making promises of what they would do if elected. But we did not believe them any more than we believe other campaign speakers, and we voted for the ones we already knew would till the position best. As a result of the election, Ralph Hanson was our presidentg Donald Patton, our vice-presidentg Phyllis Sundstrand, our secretary, and Billy Bowman, our treasurer. Soon tryouts for our class play, The Wary Ape, were announced by Miss Fields, the dramatics teacher. The play was given on December second and third, and was a huge success. We did not know until then that our class had so many fine actors, Miss Fields deserves great credit for the fine work the cast produced. Then the 91-X party-a real dinner party with speeches, entertainment, party dresses 'n everything. And didn't we behave well? VVe ourselves could scarcely believe it! The last day-what can compare with it? The soft-hearted ones were ashamed when they had to struggle to joke and laugh about it: they would rather think about the past three years and the leave-taking. How can anyone describe the feeling when, finally out of the building at last, the class looked back and experienced a foolish desire to run back and stay for another three years? VVith our departure, the history of the first semester 9A class of 1937 is ended. l30'l f Y 1 Hanson, president: Donald Patton vice-president: Billy Bowman, treasurer Phyllis Sundstrand, secretary, Miss Brod Shirley Madsen, vice-president: VVilliani Christine Moucoulis. secretary, Miss Bea- HISTORY OF THE SECOND SEMESTER 9-A CLASS Sharp, president: Walter Lynch, treas- o Llfef. trice Johnson, adviser. In the fall of 1934 nine groups of bewildered freshies entered Lincoln junior High School. Those bewildered children are now the present 9A class, no longer bewildered but confident that they can get along in the world. Many things troubled us at first. Wle found that we were separated from our friends and scattered in nine different home rooms. We had the usual difficulties that all seventh graders had: we had trouble Ending our class rooms: we could not work our combination locks: we forgot where the auditorium and gymnasium were: we believed the 7A's who told us we could ride on the elevator: we were frightened when we were summoned to the office, However, we lived through it as other classes have, and finally found ourselves advanced to the 7A grade, At this time our chief joy was trying to confuse the entering 7B group. In 7A we had three experiences to remember-most of us had the measles: we saw our first 9A play: and we received our first ANNUALS. VVe were as energetic as the upper classmen in securing signatures in our books, and it was not long before our An- nuals were interesting museums of autographs. VVhen we returned as eighth graders in the fall, we were no longer afraid of anything. Now for the first time we were privileged to elect a subject for our course. VVe knew everyone and everything in school. Many of us were engaged in the various activities of the school. We lived through the first semester of this year in eager anticipation of the time when we should be nine A's and thus the exalted beings of the school. VVe watched the privileged first semester class depart and happily moved into their places. Our number had greatly increased, Five groups having been added from the out of town pupils who take their ninth grade work in town. In March we elected Miss Beatrice johnson as our class adviser, and shortly afterwards began our campaign for election of class officers. After a spirited campaign we elected the following: William Sharp, president: Shirley Madsen, vice-president: Christine Moucoulis, secretary: and VValter Lynch, treasurer. Then came the tryouts for the 9A play, Second Fiddle. lt was a difficult task to elim- inate the candidates for the various roles, for we were all excellent actors: however, the job was accomplished and on May 13 and 14 the play was given to crowded houses. Everyone was delighted with the performance, and everyone was strong in the praise of the play, the actors, Miss Cotta, and the many who assisted behind the scenes. The story of our class is almost over. As we look back, we think with pleasure of the many leaders in school activities we have furnished. The Student Council, the Traf- fic Club, the Lincoln Log, the band, the orchestra, the three operettas have all had mem- bers of our class giving excellent service. We are all sorry to leave Lincoln and to go to a place where we are not known. Xlfe find comfort in thinking that in our going, Lincoln has truly lost a treasure. f31l WHOS WHO IN THE SECOND SEMESTER 9-A CLASS Evert Shostroin, Alice Carl- son, who the class say will amount to the most in the future.

'FCJ 'Af' Q XX V OUR SCHOOL CLUBS AND ORGANIZATIONS The clubs of Lincoln furnish one of the most enjoyable periods every Friday after- noon in our school. All of the clubs mect at two o'Clock and hold meetings lasting for forty minutes. These clubs are of wide variety of aim and procedure. Some of the clubs are formed for the sole purpose of service to the school. these are the Traffic Club, the Lincoln Log Club, the Bit-O-Science Club, and the Club. The Traffic Club, under the direction of Mr. Fowler and Mr. Ekeberg, is club of boys. During their meetings they hold traffic court to which offenders traffic regulations are brought to trial, their defense heard, and their acquittal or tion decided. The usual punishment is a certain number of zero hours, hours school while the rest of the school is dismissed. During the time school is in members of the club act in their official capacity to maintain order and to see obey the regulations. Robert Eckman is the judge of the courtg Robert Nolan, torneyg Vernard Matthews, the clerkg and Thore Moluf, Jack Hall, Raymond Among Annual a large against convic- ent in SD session. that all the ata Carlson, Robert Flynn, and Benny Magnuson, captains. The Lincoln Log Club publishes the school newspaper, a most important element in our school life. The Bit-O-Science Club publishes a small paper devoted to science. They have recently brought a great honor to our school when their publication was given an award by the State Association of Science. The Annual Club publishes this book. The club is composed of members of the Eight A, Nine B, and Nine A classes. Unlike most publishing clubs, this one does not have a regular editorial staff, it is a strictly co-operative organization with each member contributing to every activity. Many of the features of the book are prepared during the club period with each member giving suggestions and assisting in the preparation. The following officers are in charge of the club: president, Eugene Vande Walker, first se- mester-Edwin Strand, second semesterg vice-president, Marilyn Saaf and Robert Nash, secretary, Priscilla VVaishnor and Marjorie johnson, treasurer, Mary Kalusky and Marion Johnson. Many clubs are devoted to various hobbies of their members. There are knitting, needlework, art, industrial arts, checker, magazine, library, Esperanto, and coin clubs, be- sides many others. For the musical there are clubs: for those interested in acting there are four dramatic clubsg for those interested in athletics are the swimming and athletic clubs. One of the most important groups of clubs is that composed of the various Oppor- tunity Clubs, in which assistance is given for the making up of work lost because of ab- sence from school or because of inherent difficulties of the subject. The Student Council is one most important organization which does not meet at regular 'club periods. This group, consisting of a representative from each home room, meets under the direction of Miss Bowman to discuss problems of importance to the whole school. They serve as ushers at times when visitors are in the school, supervise the problem of Thanksgiving and Christmas baskets tothe poor, and render great help in the fostering of the Lincoln spirit and morale. The following have served as officers: president. Shirley Madsen, vice-president, Beverly Maynard and Shirley Skantz, secre- tary and treasurer, Leona Youngquist. In the following pages we shall try to show the nature and ntembership of our many clubs and organizations. i641 STUDENT COUNCIL FIRST SEMESTER Row 1: Row Z: Row 3: Row 4: Abse nt: Bernice johnson, Phyllis Sundstrancl, jeanue Knapp, June Cope, Gordon Bildahl, jack Broquist, Duerwood Hanford, Shirley Madsen, Eleanor Johnson Lois Lundberg.

Most of our club pictures were taken out of doors in front of the building. VVe were, therefore, dependent on the weather for the making of our plans. We became weather prophets, for we were sure of having bad weather when we planned to take pictures. Therefore, we were not able to make appointments long in advance of the time when we planned to take the pictures. This fact resulted in our having many absences from the groups to be photographed. One day while we were taking the last of the pictures, a number of people appeared who said they had been absent from their club pictures. We didn't want to miss any- one, if we could help it, so we told them to get together and we'd take their pictures. We took several of these group pictures, and have put them altogether on this page. We think it makes an interesting group. Since so many clubs are represented on this page, we might consider the group as meeting at a club coilvention.

There are really two orchestras, the beginners, with forty-live members, and the advanced, with eighty-three. Some few belong to both groups. In the advanced orchestra, there are hftyftwo members in the string section, fourteen in the wood wind, eighteen in the brass, four in the drum, and two pianists. The orchestra makes several public appearances during the year, delighting all of us who are fortunate enough to hear it. One of the most enjoyed assemblies is that given by the orchestra when the music is interspersed with clever talks by Mr. Bornor. The Christmas Vesper service is aided by the orchestra who plays during the afternoon. Some of the members play for the operetta. It is frequently called upon to play before the service clubs of the town when it wins acclaim for itself, its director, and its school. VVith the orchestras from the other high schools is plays at the spring music festival given at the Rockford stadium. an-0, OETEEI: Omfgwa .. .-f f52?e2P mqqowmo 'mmmwxf 21352 raft 'Ewa F2555 Bala Ho-:rue 5-fs-ii-fc Q-im'-rm r3!I1f'D:T ' s2f2,E 'Ei ' f'Q'PU'o 25700 nano .-, omg QQFZ: o g QZIQS 55222 If-v pg 6535-:.

' N The event next in importance to the orchestra is the annual contest held between the groups from the two junior high schools. The members work hard in the hope that they may win for the school the coveted honor of being named the better orchestra. The orchestra has an interestingisystem of challenges. lf one musician desires an- other's place, he challenges the second one. The challenger selects a composition which both the challenger and the challenged must play. -Qfhe orchestra members then vote for the one which they think plays the music better. As soon as one loses his position, he be- gins the work of recovering it again. The most coveted positions are those of the lead- ership of each group. During the first semester Richard Kjellgren was the concert mas- ter: in the second, Harriet Spongberg had this honor. s . . x J lS9l - -,gi-,r wuz.

This hilarious comedy gave us a great deal of fun and entertainment. XVe were especially amused by the antics of the ape, which had escaped on ship board and frightened the passengers and crew. This part was most realistically played by John Bellone, The absent-minded professor who owned the ape was played by Robert Nord- lohne and Carroll Spon.

The first game was with the s ior iigh scho lightweight second squad. which the lightweights won 13 to 6. The second game was p ayed against our rival junior high school. Roosevelt won the game, 7 to 0. There was no scoring until the fourth quarter, when Roosevelt made a touchdown. Then Roosevelt kicked oti' to Lincoln, and Henderson received. Lincoln started its 87 yard drive down the field and was on the three yard line when the gun went off, and the game ended. The third and last game was played with Rockford Heavy B squad. Although fighting against great odds, the Lincoln team showed its spirit and fight throughout the game. Three times it held its opponents on the one yard line, but were unable to do so the fourth time, The seniors made an end run which ended the game. E.

The basketball season at Lincoln opened on December 4 with a game with the senior highschool B team. The opponents won the game with a score of 31-21. Our team made such a good showing in spite of its defeat, that we looked forward to the series with XRoosevelt with a great deal of confidence. The first game of the junior high school series 'was p ayed on December, 173 it was a close and exciting game. with Roosevelt winning in the fi al period with a score of 20-18. The second game was also won by Roosevelt by the na row margin of 17 to 15. At the end of the hrst quarter the opponents led with a score f 16 to 8, a large handicap which the Lincoln team almost overcame. The third game of the series was one which brought much excitement to the home team. With Roosevelt leading in the last quarter with a score of 13-12, Frank Robinson made a basket with 1 ss than ten seconds to play. When three seconds later the referees whistle blew, we rej iced that we had won by a score of 14-13. The next game, played at Lincoln, was anoth r victory for our team, this time with a score of 26-19. Then came the Fifth and deciding game of the series. Although in the last quarter the Lincoln team staged a gal- lant rally, it was too late and the other team won by the score of 30-16, winning not only the game but also the series. Mr, Gordon deserves much credit for the fine work the boys did, and sympathy that we lost the series. E971 SWIMMING Donald Chesak, John VVilson, Allan Vance Ralph Eckert, Donald Melquist, Robert Westfall .---4 Absent: Carlton Anderson, Addison Foss. Swimming is a favorite sport at Lincoln, and much interest is aroused by our team. After holding the junior high school championship of Rockford for four years, we were so unfortunate last year that we lost it. VVe had high hopes that we should recapture it this year, but we found our hopes unrealized. However, the boys worked hard, and we are hoping that with new material availablc in the fall that we shall have better luck next year.

While it was still cold, however, they braved the weather, and under the direction of Coach Nutting, went regularly to Churchill Park for practice.

Pass ball is a game which originated in our school nine years ago. The game uses many of the plays of football, but it is much less dangerous than the more familiar game. It serves as a good introduction to the regular game, and at the same time is suitable to the limitations of the school playground. During the fall an exciting tournament was held with many games played before the championships were decided.

The girls in our school do 11Ot play in games with other schools. That does not mean that they are not interested in athleticsg on the contrary, they show great interest and skill in the various games played within the school. During the year a number of tourna- ments are held between the different classes. These are always exciting events. In the fall the seventh grade girls played a German bat ball series. After a number of strenuous games the 7B-Z girls were proclaimed the victors. Kick-ball is one of the most popular games among the girls. It is played by the girls of all classes. In the second semester, the 7A-7 girls won the seventh grade championship. The girls' tumbling team is composed of seventh grade girls who have ability in this type of athletics. They do some remark- able work and show promise of developing into future Olympic stars.

GIRLS' ATHLETICS Three of the hardest fought tournaments of the first semester were the kick-ball, basketball, and volley-ball contests. Each of these was won by a 9A class. The first series to be played was the kick-ball tournament. After a number of games, the 9A-1's finally achieved the coveted victory. Then came the basketball series. Each group played against a rival team, the winner playing the winner from another group. By a process of elimination, the 9A-7's were left and declared the champions. The 9A-8's defeated the 9B-6's in volley-ball, their opponents having previously defeated the 9B-7's. The winning team next met the 9B-3's who were the winners in their group. After the final games, the victory was awarded the 9A-8's.

During the second semester a nine court basketball tournament was held among the different ninth grade classes. Some of these were played in class, but most of them-and all of the Finals-were played after school. The 9A-7 girls outplayed the 9A-3's in the Final game and thus clinched the victory. Volley-ball is a popular sport among eighth and ninth grade girls. The 9B-3's played the runners-up, the 9B-5's, and won the game, thus coming to be second semester ninth grade champions. In the eighth grade tournament, the 8B-4 girls by defeating the 8B-6's won their claim to victory. H041 OF INTEREST TO ATHLETES Howard Martin and George John- son. The cheer leaders go into ac- tion. Earl Malm and William Linden. VVillian1 Hall about to make a for- ward pass. Frank Levinsky and Robert Broskey of the Athletic Club. Joe Triola and Robert Wood who take part in several of our sports. James Morgan, the 9A giant, and a member of the basketball squad. Frank Robinson, who went to senior high school in February after three years of sports in Lincoln. Theodus Benton, who was missed from the basketball team when he went to high school. Morris Bianchi and Frank Las- sandro went out for football this year. Some more of the cheerleaders in There are two phases in our athletic season at Lincoln. One is that of the competi- tion with Roosevelt Junior High School in football, basketball, swimming and track. All of these ended disappointingly for our school: this was our off-season. An even more important phase of school athletics is the intra-mural contests, carried on by teams in several sports. The girls, as well as the boys, carry on these contests and almost everv day after school the gymnasium is a scene of wild excitement as one team or another goes down in defeat or up in victory. ' Football was resumed this year after a period of several years in which the junior high schools did not play the game. This season of the sport was looked upon as only a preliminary to next year when the game will be undertaken as a regular part of the fall season of athletics. We had an excellent basketball team. The class teams and the light and heavyweight teams had some exciting games, while the school team played a fine game and had our hopes raised for a championship. We did not have our hopes realized, however, but we are anticipating better luck next year. An important factor at all our games was the work of the cheer -leaders under the capable leadership of Harriet Bergren. If they could have had anything to do with lt. we should have triumphed in all sports. There was nothing lacking in their enthusiasm, H051 WE HAVE' OUR JOKES ' These Really Happened: Mr. Foss: Is a deer a carnivorous animal? The class looked rather puzzled.
