That is "tenuto". It means to play the note at it's full value.

Thanks! What about the eighth measure? The lines above the notes in the treble clef, are those leger lines???

Expression is the word. Typically you would have little breaks between notes. Tenuto means to make sure that you hold the note for the whole duration of it's value.
