molmwweawvvzeaeazaogaea THE LINCOLNIAN 0-.tacoma
DID you ever stop to think how dull an entertainment would be without approf
priate stage settings? Well, thanks to Lincoln's industrious stage crew and the colorf
ful scenery and clever lighting effects which they have achieved, all our entertain'
ments are literally put over with a bang.
The boys have accomplished a great deal this past year. About the biggest
feature was the installation of the audio system. Its purpose is to relieve the over'
crowded condition of our allfschool assemblies. With funds provided by the class of
'28 and some money from other sources a radio, an amplifier, and a phonograph pick'
up were procured. Mechanism for relaying sound was installed on the stage, and highf
grade loudfspeakers were placed in the boys' gym, the girls' gym, and rooms 116, 120,
It is now possible for the overflow from the auditorium to enjoy assembly programs
in these speciallyfequipped rooms. Music for several mixers was provided by the
radio. Of course, plays and similar programs can not be relayed in this manner.
In addition to setting up the audio apparatus, the boys also installed a new light'
ing system in their attic studio, and constructed an entirely new stage setting for
both the senior class play and the opera. In the decoration of the boys' gym for the
JuniorfSenior prom new lighting effects were produced by the use of colorful flood'
lights and strips of white cloth. These decorations were also used at the Alumni
and Benefit dances.
Lincoln's living Christmas tree again shone forth in all its splendor during the
holiday season. About fifteen dollars' worth of icicles and tinsel, a string of fifty
colored lights, four baby floodlights, and several border lights were used in decorating
the tree. Last year the big cedar won a S25 prize for the boys, but owing to the
power shortage in December, no prizes were offered this year.
The six hard-working boys who comprise this year's stage crew are: Don Shaw,
scenery manager, Clinton 'Williams, assistant scenery, Robert Scott, property manager,
Howard Lee and Don Williams, assistant property, Ivan Morgan, electrician, and
Stan Tickle, assistant electrician. Mr. Cryst is adviser.

INCCLN has just cause to be proud of her Student Council. Comprised of
Lincoln students of the highest ability and finest character, it has indeed made an
excellent record, worthy of any school in America.
The Hrst Student Council was organized in September, 1924, after a group of
Lincoln students, members of the staff of the Lincoln News, and several of the
teachers had attended a conference at the University of Washington in Seattle. The
first duty of the council was to make a Constitution for the Associated Students. After
much hard labor a constitution was finally completed and printed in the Lincoln News
in January, 1925. It was ratified by the student body and has served till the present
year, with the exception of a few amendments.
The duties of the council are many and varied. Most business brought up
before the council deals with student and school problems. In the fall semester the
Student Council put before the student body the question: "Should the Lincolnian
be edited by the Senior class, or should it be made an allfschool publication?" As a
result of the vote, the Lincolnian edited in former years by the senior class was made
a student body publication. In connection with this matter the council voted to
provide a permanent cover design for the annual, starting with this year's publication.
During the year, since no pictures have been added to Lincoln's Hall of Fame
since 1925, the council took measures to make the collection upftofdate. Committees
were appointed to try to get as many desirable pictures as possible for the collection.
Pictures of athletes, teams, winners of A. A. U. W. and Richard Graff Memorial
awards, newspaper cuts, and pictures of similar character are framed and placed in
the council room. In this way Lincoln has a permanent record of her outstanding
The Student Council is pledged to bring before the entire student body all
questions of great importance as soon as they arise. At the time when is was dis'
covered that Lincoln could not claim the football trophy because one of our star
players had been ineligible during the whole season, an assembly was immediately
called and the students were given the news. Bringing together the school on matters
of general concern promotes the spirit of cooperation which is characteristic of all
A new department was added to the council this year. Since the editor of the
Lincoln News has a seat in the council as Commissioner of Journalism, it was decided
that the editor of the Lincolnian should also be on the council.
Faculty advisers are chosen each fall, Miss Gowell, Mr. Mann and Mr. Meddins
served this year.

Two hundred and twenty kiddies enjoyed a happy Christmas this year, thanks to
Santa's Twins. Each year two girls from the Lincoln News are chosen to serve as
Santa's Twins. These girls, with the aid of interested students, provide Christmas
cheer for families that are too poor to afford luxuries. The names of the families are
received from the Community Chest.
A widefspread interest was taken in the work of the twins. The donations
received were very generous, totalling nearly twelve dollars. Ten dollars donated
by the Red Cross was used in making a box of candy for each family. Boxes
of toys, clothing, etc., were sent from all over .the city. ,A box was even sent from
a school in Ilwaco, 'Washington, where the teacher is a former Lincoln student.
This year's Santa's Twins were Helen Carlson and Mary Heaton.
KEEPING clippings about all school activities and pasting them in big scrapbooks
in the library-that is the work of the historians. The clippings are cut from daily
newspapers and the Lincoln News and pertain to all the activities of the school. The
books date back to about 1926.
Evelyn Frank and Clarence Lemming were chosen by the Student Council to
take care of the work for this year. Evelyn kept track of the general activities, while
Clarence cut clippings about all sports.
Although most of the clippings about class plays, operas, jubilees, sports, etc.,
are purely narrative, there are a number of newspaper pictures and many actual
photographs. If you are curious to see how Phil Sorboe looked as captain of the
midget basketball team in 1928, or see handsome Pete Peterson in his swimming suit
fourfodd years ago, just ask Miss Anderson for the scrapbooks in the library. She'll
be glad to give them to you, and you can look and laugh to your heart's content.
