Keep Your Noise in the Correct
Do you know the definition of
noise? Noise is a loud confused
or senseless shouting. Bearing this
statement in mind, one can plain
ly see that inside the school is
no place for loud senseless shout
ing. When you walk up and down
the hall, do you have to carry on
conversations? No. Then let’s re
frain from gossiping with our fel
low friends while passing on the
hall. Save your gossip for the
lunch hour or better, just forget
What does the Library mean
to you? The Library is a place for
study. It seems that some students
think it is a recreation center.
Leave your noise on the thres
hold. stud.y to become wiser. If
you do not wish to study, let oth
ers do so. Never let the Librarian
have to tell you keep quiet please!
Be wise enough to do so yourself.
To all noise makers and inven
tors, save your noise for football
games and recesses. No one ever
h.ars you then.
Take heed, learn to utilize your

1 Dear Coach and Members of the
I Football and Basketball Teams,
I assume that you all remember
one of the best men of our high
school sports, Willis ’Wootsy”
Barbee, who met an accidental
death while participating in a
football game. I am sure that if
he were here today, he would
\ want his team to win and keep
on winning. When you play re-

fair and hard.”

Dear Mrs. Turner,
I am doing very well in the
Army. ... I would like to receive
the Lincoln Echo each month. . . .
I enjoy reading the article “The
Editor Speaks” very much. . . .
There’s an aquarium in our class
And it’s not sitting in the sun,
There are lots of water plants
And the fish have lots of fun.
It is not only the fish though.
There are water snails too.
There’s a bashful fish in it,
And he doesn’t know what to do.
Because the fish are so beautiful,
And they get all the oxygen they
There’s nothing in the aquarium
to hurt them.
We enjoy them indeed!

How I Fed About
New Lincoln High
By Florence Suiit, English III
Ever since I was a small girl,
1 have dreamed of graduating
from a large beautiful high school,
with modern equipment adequate
to the needs of every school child.
This year my dream seems des
tined to come true.
Here we are located in the new
Lincoln High, surrounded by a
spacious playground that can be
made very beautiful. Too, the
large colorful classrooms, the spa
cious, well-equipped home econ
omics room, the large attractive
cafeteria, the very attractive lav
atories, and finally the science de
partment that is gradually being
fitted with equipment such as we
never before seen—all these
seem to be tne ^^swer to mv
I feel that these things will
have a very helpful influence up
on the students. It seems to me
that they cannot help but have
some effect upon even the most
indifferent boy or girl. To me
education is life, a slow process
of developing body, mind, and
character, something that is con
tinuous throughout life, resulting
in a desirable individual.
Thus, the new school, which in
spires us all to work up to our
highest abilities, provides this
slow, but ever-growing process of
developing body, mind, and char
