HE Lincolnian is an organization of college men who are interested in the
promotion of forensics. Meetings are held on alternate Thursdays. At these
meetings 1nteresc1ng programs are glven, CUnblelIlg of dbbatcs and prULilca, humm
ous and serious, all of which are on subjects of Vital interest to students of the
A traditional feature of the organization is the initiation of new members. After
the 01d members have gone through the preliminaries of voting upon those applying
for admission to the society as to their eligibility, plans for initiation are made.
Each new member is required to give a "soapbox" oration of not less than five
minutes without notes. This speech must be given to a large crowd in the corridor.
Secret initiations are also held.
The election of officers is the next bomb exploded by the group to arouse cn-
thusiasm. Political parties are organized with the schooYs most fluent speakers
as campaign managers, and with the societyis least sensitive members ascandidatcs,
for the candidates must be able to stand much abuse.

The girls have derived much from these programs in the way of entertainment and
general enlightenment. .
We have also lived up to our name in a social way. In September, members of
G. O. P. assisted at the opening of the new social room, by serving at a tea given
for the women of the college. We gave a joint tea with the Masquers Society for
all girls interested in drama, art, music, and literature. All of the girls were then
asked to contribute to the program. From these girls, the two societies selected
their new members. G. O. P. initiated twenty-two of these girls in the first part
of January. This initiation, truly a riotous affair, will never be forgotten by the
G. O. P. girls helped make the 1928 Homecoming go over big by giving a clever
stunt showing the effects of our River Falls Team on the team of Milwaukee. We
did so well in this stunt, that we were appointed to take charge of all mass meet-
ings. As our purpose is to boost everything, this new duty was accomplished with
the usual good spirit. Our Homecoming dinner fOr alumnae G. O. P. sisters Was
given at the Gladstone Hotel.
At Christmas,.a tea was given at which the girls of the school gave a set of
dishes to the social room. February eighth was the date for one of the social high
lights of the year, the G. O. P. Formal. This was well attended and everyone
reported a fine time.

The parties are labeled with such titles as the uAnti-Bunk Party" and the "Red
Progressives." The slogans adopted are most inspiring; posters are printed and
flags are waved. On the final day the candidates and managers give inspiring and
abusive speeches as a grand finale. This year the officers chosen were: presidents,
John Dzubay and Donald Zwicky, vice-presidents, Martin Abrahamsen and Horace
Merrill, secretaries, Peter Vig and Gordon Grimm, treasurers, Arno Dittbrenner
and William Hawkins.
Besides promoting mass meetings, distributing booster badges, and entertaining
the visiting high school students who take part in the District Oratorical Contest
held at River Falls, Lincolnian members this year promoted the production of
Shakespearets "Julius Caesarf which was presented by the Stratford Players.
The society has no dues. It makes money through promotion.
