Looking forward to furthering
' nur educatoin is a very impor-
trUit and exciting prospect. In ad-
rlition to being enjoyable,, the
thought of a further education
should stimulate the mind of ev

Consideration for a further ed
ucation does not concern the sen
iors alone: as manv of us believe.
For you students, other than sen
iors can be considering your pro
spective field and preparing your
self for them by getting all you
can here in high school.
The choice of college or univer-
. '^y is of great importance, and
much consideration should be
.given in making this choice.
I hope this will convey to you
to prepare yourself for a success
ful jareer and. an effective citi
zenship in a community.

Education Is A
By Delores James
Today, education is the key
note to all jobs that man can ob
tain. regarciless of race or reli
gion. A high school education is
even required for those who want
minor jobs such as baby sitting,
and domestic work.
When one enters and completes
the senior year of high school, he
is faced with the big problem of
whether to further his education
or not. This is a big problem to
many students because of finance,
lack of ambition, and just not
knowing'what he or she wants to
do. Some students may even go
to college and later flunk out be
cause of lack of interest.
The majority of students at
Lincoln have not and are not
studying enough to be able to
answer the challenge in the fu
ture. We should all. as students
and future citizens begin to put
more time on the primary things
of life and let oleasure be second-

but other and more mature inter-

might discover a new interest in

How Juvenile
Delinquency Sta rts
By Kozie Pendergraft
Most childrei; that live in slum
areas are the one’s who are
juvenile delincuents. Their par
ents leave them anyplace with
anybody, let them go and come
when they wart to, most of them
start when they are young. First
they will lie, cheat, steal and
murder, until someone catches
them. The crimes they commit
will then go on a criminal record
under juvenile delinquency.

We should, however, cultivate
hobbies and leisure-time activ

this is one of the best ways to
develop a wholesome personality
and broaden our interests. We
should remember that engaging in
worth-while leisure-time activ
ities is our environment. We can
do nothing about our heredity. We
have little control over our home
and schooling, but we can control
the kinds of experiences we have.
We can make sure that these
experiences contribute to our
personality development and vo
cational growth.
