molmwweawvvzeaeazaogaea THE LINCOLNIAN 0-.tacoma Stage Crew 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, and 133. 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. Sixtyfone

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 students. 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 Lincoln's activities. 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. Sixty

0000 T H E L I N C O L N I A N 0000000000000 Santa's Twins 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. Historians 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. Sixtyftwo
