Guidance Helps Vets "A friend in need is a friend indeed." So troubled Lincoln students find a friendly and helpful atmosphere in room 229, the guidance room. Straightening out difficult pro- grams. interviewing new students. putting out job bulletins and aiding veterans to obtain their high school diplomas were just a few of the services performed by Leslie Hoar, Miss Mildred Moyer, Miss Gladys Parker, Mrs. Nelle Delany and Mrs. Ruby Somerville. Vocational guidance was enlarged this year in an effort to enable students to relate their school interest to more or less specific areas of occupational activity. With Miss Gladys Parker as military adviser. veterans were programmed for regular enroll- ment after careful individual counseling on jobs. college or other advancemnet for which the high school diploma is a prerequisite. Over 50 ex-servicemen attended Lincoln this semester. Lincoln administers the General Educational Development test to determine whether or not the veteran has acquired either formally or in- formally the equivalence of a high school edu- cation. On the basis of this test, more than IOO men were placed on the 1946 graduation list. During the second semester. a handbook which will be available to all students in the fall of 1946 was constructed in connection with Miss Rosa Palo's advanced composition class. This handbook will contain information on the courses offered at Lincoln, the clubs, the student body constitution and other activities of interest to both old and new students, P. T. A.

Leslie Hear, Mrs, Ruby Somerville, Mrs. Nellie Delany. Busy Year for P. T. A. Meeting every third Tuesday of the month to carry on their activities under the direction of Mrs. William Kohout is Lincoln's Parent- Teachers Association. This organization. better known as the P. T. A., is a combination of parents and teachers working together in both social and service projects. To start off their full schedule for the year the parents of the group gave a tea and reception in the library honoring the teachers. A meeting of particular interest was held in January when two student council members and Mrs. Russell Baker gave a report and dis- cussion on conditions at the detention home. However, the most important meeting of the year was held on Founders Day, February l9. when Lt. Col. F,nsley Lewellyn was their guest speaker. Lt. Col. Lewellyn, an ex-Lincolnite. was a fitting speaker for this occasion as his mother was one of the first presidents of the P. T. A. at Lincoln. Heading their list of service projects for the year was the important part they played in the collection of clothes for the needy people of war torn countries. ln addition to their activities in Tacoma, the P. T. A. sent two delegates to a state confer- ence in Wenatchee on May 7-8-9. Aiding Mrs. Kohout, serving her second year as president were: Mrs. Fred Lockwood. first vice-president: Miss Van Devanter, second vice- president: Mrs. George Renni. secretary: Mrs. Arthur Sandin, treasurer: and Mrs. J. W. Yost, program chairman.
