Tacoma, WA Lincoln High School Alumni Notes 1915
Although our alumni list is small, this being only our second year, the reports that we hear of those who have gone to other institutions of learning and out into the business world, fully make up for our lack of numbers. We hear interesting accounts of our representatives at the several colleges. Marie Cook, at U. of W., has set a hard pace for us to follow. Besides being busily engaged with social affairs, she has thus far kept an average of 92 in her subjects. This is especially encouraging to some of us ; for with diligent study and concentration, without the social side of college life, we are now entertaining hopes of at least passing.
At Pullman, Mary Setzer, '15, is doing remarkably well. She has been recently appointed assistant matron of one of the dormitories and is also making good in her domestic science course. She is remembered as the winner of several prizes in the domestic science line while in high school.
In the case of many of our alumni, the first year after graduation has been spent in preparing for college or in deciding future careers. Among these, Howard Parker, Blanche Cummings, Bennie Lowe and Kenneth Bates, a few of our prominent students, are planning to join our ranks at the U. of W. next year. We expect to hear great things of them in the future.
Hazel Bigby '15 has been engaged as teacher for a school on Vashon Island for next year. By hard work, both summer and winter, she has completed two year's course at Bellingham in one and one-half years. Olive Bovee finishes also, bearing with her the same record. These girls are the first L. P. H. S. alumni to be graduated from Bellingham.
Floyd Baker '15 is selling "Hupmobiles," at least, he is trying to amid all the class play rehearsals and his vocal lessons. He will take the part of "Blondel" in the 1916 class play.
Louise Stilke '15 is specializing in the Home Economics course at Pullman.
Katherine Firebaugh '15 tells us that she is having a "dandy time" at Wellesley. We see that she has not changed, for she will have a good time wherever she goes.
"Turky" Therkildsen '15 is working at the St. Paul Lumber Co.
Frankie Wotton, Society Editor of '15 Tahoma, is studying art.
Our visitors this past month were Mildred Anderson, Margaret Hennessey, just home from her school, Anne Carpenter and Melvin Reilly.
Saturday, May 20, Carl Knauff '15, was married to Margaret McQueen, also a student of L. P. H. S. last year.
Millie Gault '15 1/2 was married Wednesday, May 17, to a prominent jeweler of the city, A. Walters.
