Maintaining a sportsmanlike atmosphere at all athletic events and encouraging participation in all sports at all levels were two of the primary goals of the Lettermen's Club at Lincoln High School.

All three lettered in two or more sports during their high school careers. For some reason club president Herm Magnuson was not photographed with the other officers.

Jack McLin, advisor, stands with Rifle Club members outside the steps of Lincoln High School on April 12, 1957. The Rifle Club at Lincoln had a long tradition of safety in shooting. It was established in 1927 and since then, had had no record of accidents. Each member was careful when shooting, in practice or in matches, and all new members were instructed by old members on the proper use of firearms. Generally the club shot at a range of 50 yards, nearly always holding matches indoors. Lincoln participated in a league with teams from Stadium, Clover Park, Everett, Franklin Pierce, Sumner and Puyallup. The Girls' team finished first in its league.

Eleven members of the Lincoln High School Student Council posed with a large banner on September 9, 1955, urging their classmates to demonstrate their school spirit by purchasing ASB cards for a mere $5.50. These activity cards helped support athletic events, dances, the Lincolnian Newspaper and the Lincolnian yearbook. Lincoln students bought more cards than their Stadium counterparts. As a result Stadium H.S. had to present an assembly on Lincoln's campus in payment for losing the contest. Students identified above are: Jean Bucklin, Lincoln News editor (seated L) and Amie Spencer, Lincolnian editor (seated R). Standing are: Joe Devish, Senior rep.; Sharon Gaisford, Girls Club rep.; Dick Beddoe, Sportsmen's Club rep.; Marilee Andersen, Vice-president; Lee Hauge, Yell King; John Sabol, Junior rep.; Duane Christensen, President; Nancy Reinvik, Secretary; and Loren Hildebrand, Commissioner of Finance.

Eleven Lincoln High School leaders along with the school's principal stood on the steps of Lincoln High School with a large banner promoting school spirit in September of 1954. Principal Kenneth Flora is flanked by Sally Strobel, senior representative on the student council (on left) and student body president Robert L. Simpson and Ida Kvenild (on the right). Wonderful values were still available through the purchase of an Associated Student Body Membership Card, with admittance to various sporting events and reduced admission rates on plays, shows, bus fares and the school yearbook, the Lincolnian. School had opened earlier in the month so there was still plenty of time to get involved in the numerous activities that Lincoln offered. Photograph ordered by the Lincoln News, school newspaper.

On November 19, 1924, three stalwart football players on the Lincoln High School team, (l-r) David Rice, James Mosolf and Richard Johnson, posed for a photograph on what may be school grounds. Rice was a right tackle and field captain for the first game against Stadium. He was also Senior Class president. Mosolf, field captain for the third and final match against Stadium, played left end and then quarterbacked the team the final two games. Johnson was the team punter as well as playing fullback and left end; his drop kick from the 30-yard line proved to be the winning score during the last game of the season. They are in practice gear as the big intercity clash with Stadium High School loomed in the near future. G46.1-040 (1925 Lincolnian, various pages)

In February of 1922, Manley Edwards (extreme right, front row) was elected president of Lincoln High School's newly organized Radio Club. The club had attracted over 40 male and female students, many of whom were licensed radio operators, and was looking to add more members. Faculty advisor A.J. Bell had organized classes in radio which were held during school hours and were taught by club members. The Board of Education had given a gift of $150 to buy a radio set, but the club members decided to build their own instead using the school's electrical shop. Names of the club members were listed in the Tacoma Daily Ledger's April 5, 1922, issue.

Lincoln High School students were Santa's helpers in 1922 when they reached out to make Christmas a merrier time for many local children. Students had donated used toys which were refurbished and made "new" by the sewing, art, and manual training classes on campus. The newspaper staff of the Lincoln High School News started the drive by traveling to various homes to pick up donations. They are believed to be pictured above along with the numerous dolls, balls, books and other toys they collected. G21.1-172 ( See Boland B7041 for additional article and photographs of the enterprising students)

Santa's helpers. Six members of the Lincoln High School News returned to school on December 19, 1922, loaded down with used toys that were donated by generous Lincoln High students. The newspaper staff had traveled to student homes to collect the toys, most of which were in need of repair. Thanks to the school newspaper, and the hard work of the manual training, sewing and art classes at Lincoln, many local children would receive toys that had been refurbished until they were as good as new. The steady and skillful hands of Lincoln's students repaired toys ranging from tricycles, drums, kiddie cars, and sleds to automobiles, toy horses, chairs & beds and hundreds of dolls. The school hoped to make their Santa's Workshop an annual event. An article in the December 24, 1922, Sunday Ledger identified the students in the above photograph as (l to r): Carl Schmid, Lloyd Eberhart, Morrill Folsom, Constance Markuson, Norma Huseby and John McKown. G20.1-209 (Tacoma Sunday Ledger, 12-24-22, magazine section).
