This book reviews one of three
years of joyful living, when friend'
ships are intense, when novelty
prevails in all interests, and when
every week is an exploration in
Memories of school will be clear
for a while, then, as time lengthens,
details will be diffused into a dim
recollection, and the thought of
the significance of it all will begin
to take its rightful place. Generf
ally one lives through a life ex'
perience so occupied with present
occurrences that the import and
purpose is lost sight of. Who prof
vided the educational advantages
so lavishly bestowed on the youth
of today? What purpose were
they designed to jill?
A generation ago the people of Tacoma thought to provide schools that
would train the youth of the city in the -ways of learning, in right attitudes of
thought, and in proper habits of living. Lincoln High School came into
existence for just such a purpose-beautiful buildings, a complete curriculum,
recreational facilities, and a full staff of instructors. This school has pref
sented a great opportunity for as many as would avail themselves of it.
About four thousand boys and girls have graduated from Lincoln High School
and are now in their various places thinking thoughts of gratitude and feeling
an obligation to perpetuate the good work. The members of the present
graduating class, about four hundred and fifty, the largest class in the history
of the school, are now to go on their several ways: some to college, some into
industry, some into commerce, and others into agriculture. But, whatever
the direction, each will carry with him or her an obligation to return a full
measure of service for the educational advantages received. This service may
be rendered by exalted purpose in life, thrift in use of time and talent, and
loyalty to high standards of citizenship.
Lincoln High School follows with pride the careers of her graduates as
reports come in of distinction won and service rendered. She continues as a
permanent, understanding, sympathetic institution. She wishes for all those
who have caught the spirit of the school, that is, to receive with gratitude and
return with gladness, a full measure of the satisfaction that comes with a
consciousness of successful effort.
