MISS ELIZABETH W. BAKER Miss Baker has been one of the most notable workers towards bringing about a revival of interest in spoken English. It is due to her efforts that the time of the English Classes has been more equally apportioned between the spoken and the written word. She has established classes in public speaking in O. C. Hi. which have trained the students to speak extemporaneously with more ease and intelligence on public questions than the average grown person exhibits on similar occasions. She has developed two splendid debating teams both of which have won several victories for O. C.-the boys securing the city championship. GORDON MARSH The Oak Cliff Debating Stock took a decided leap upward when Marsh first showed us his oratorical ability. He has a pleasing delivery and a forceful personality, that, combined with a logical mind and an impressive vocabulary were strong factors in winning for 0. C. the debating championship of the city of Dallas. Gordon has done more than his share of hard work for the blue and white this year and we are confidently looking forward to further victories from him at Denton in the district debate and at Austin in the state debate. PINKIE JAY Any one who still clings to the ancient belief that women are illogical can never have heard Pinkie debate. She has a pleasant voice and a clear direct line of thought that will carry her far in any line of public speaking she may care to undertake. In all O. C. Debates in which the girls participated Pinkie has received much commendation and she has added to the fame and glory of the Blue and White in all possible ways. WILL C. GRANT Will C. Grant has been a steady and hard-working member of the O. C. boys' debating team which won the Dallas championship and which is expected to win other victories before the close of the season. Grant has a wonderful command of language and a nice easy manner that wins him the admiration of his audience. FRANCES SPEARS While still a member of an under-class Frances Spears has shown marked ability in her chosen line. She has been a memberfpf the girls debating team for two years and has done a great deal towards furthering interest in this lille of work. She says that she intends to be a lawyer and all of us who have heard her debate agree that she should do well in this profession.

Secrezary ---- JACK WHITTINGTON The purpose of the Hi-Y Club is to create, maintain and extend throughout the school and community high standards of Christian Character. The slogan is Clean Living, Clean Speech, Clean Athletics, and Clean Scholarship. The Oak Cliff Hi-Y Club has made rapid progress this year, even though it was late in getting started. At the first meeting O. P. Wolcott was elected presi- dent and did very effective work in this position until he was compelled to resign because of too much work in connection with the annual. W. C. Miller was elected to finish out lVlr. Wolc0tt's term and under his leadership the Club has conducted many campaigns in the school, and above all helped to make the Older Boys, Conference a great success. The first campaign was the Clean Athletics Campaign, which was a great success in all the high schools. Next was the Clean Speech Campaign and in this many boys in the high schools pledged themselves to refrain from using profane language. The World Outlook Canrpaign was also conducted and in this every member of the Hi-Y Clubs pledged a small amount of money. This campaign was especially for foreign missions and the Hi-Y Clubs raised their quota. Then a great Anti-Cigarette Campaign was held and in this more than seven hundred boys in Oak Cliff High School pledged themselves not to use cigarettes and to do all in their power to discourage the use of them. ln all the campaigns and other things which the Hi-Y Club has conducted, it has been exceedingly successful. The Older Boys' Conference which was held in Dallas this year, was a great success and the Oak Cliff Hi-Y did its part in making it a success. f L, U Ig D Page Sixty-Three 'I Jil 1 A I 1 --I Ui e 'ci IU Bor's CHORUS MUSIC DEPARTMENT The students of Oak Cliff owe a great deal to the music depart- ment for the splendid assistance it has given in all assemblies and progzrams. Miss Sadie Cannon is always ready to help out and as a result the Oak Cliff High School has won quite an enviable reputation for its musical contributions to the amusements and social occasions. The aims of the department as laid down by its director are broader than mere amusement. '4l7undamentally, the aims of the department of music are to contribute to mental, moral, and spiritual development. Some of the more definite aims of the work for the past year have been to make good music popular, to contribute entertainment to the school and community activitiesg to dignify and intensify the study of music so that the work done might form a basis for further train- ingg to provide a medium of expression for the highest emotions, and in final, to let boys and girls sing and play for the sheer joy of so doingf' it l IU Page Sixty-Four Tw -v-, ,,Y Ur IU FIRST VIOLINS Grace Featherstone -7- Leia Featherst0ne4"" Dorothy Halchett Cecil Hubbert Dorothy Huher Josephine Oliver Allene Shanks Frances Smith Ezma Taylor James Mulhollan SECOND VIOLINS Beryl Aimer Elaine Basset Helen DeVoss Jeanne Doyle Josephine Everett Ida Franke Bernice Holloway Josephine Jay Bernice Ledhetter ORCHESTRA Miss SAnuz CANNON, Director Edward Mace Joe Mayon Eula Prescott Jeanne Pool Evelyn Rives Louise Ross Lawrence Ross Kathleen Smith Wilma Sprague Irene Sypert Bara Thornton PIANISTS Milhurn Dalshaw Frances McClellan CELLOS Constance Ohl Vouda Jones CONTRN BASS Ellen Harris Floyd Nvbltsoll SAXOPHONES Sarah Hundley Seth Kellam Bennie Sue Strother LILARI NETS Clifford Averitt Bill Grace Feryl Hunter FLUTE AND PICCOLO Bill Grace HORN Ray Frampton CORNETS .lumes Leftwich Blenefee Roots ' Auris Turner TROXIBONES Elam Eckles Homan Gragg Paul VVadJle Ul -' F Ii Page S ixty-F ive U , 7-v -+vV --H -7 -1---Y - ,,, m, - .U P 1 N , N CRAFT Snzvmsox Lmnmzuc TAYLOR SMITH -HACEMANN N1oREToN JOHNSON WOOLF FRIEND SPEARS STROTHER w 1 ,4 U Page Sixty-Six L , , , nn ee s A i D MCOME OUT OF THE KITCHEN7' By A.

Mr. Crane has particularly specified that a staff of white servants shall be furnished. At the last moment the servants refuse to come, and to prevent the breaking of the lease Olivia Dangerfield persuades her sister and brothers to he servants, along with herself, until a new staff can be provided. mf lu -L Page Sixty-Seven AQ Omni XvHAifH Cnctxrzl-1 Nlcllmw HRIDLQI-QS SOVVIDICN SlNCLlC'l'UY SAYLQI: be buh Eight UI I Mr. Andrew Bulli Mr. Ernest Heran Ruddock - Mr. ,Iarvis - Mr. Isaac Woolf Dr. Maclaren Kible - - Merridew Dawson - Virginia Bullivant Mrs. Maclaren GRUMPY WARD MCCANN vant fGrumpyj - - - - HAROLD VEACH W.

ACT III.-Mr. ,larvisis Rooms in London. ACT. IV.--The Same as Acts I and II. SYNOPSIS The play opens at the country home of Mr. Bullivant, where he lives with his granddaughter, Virginia. Mr. Bullivant is inclined to be a fussy, old-fashioned gentleman, who is one minute storming at every one and is all heart for them the next. He some day hopes that Virginia will marry Ernest, who is in the employ of a large diamond concern. Ernest is intrusted with one of the largest diamonds in the world, which he is to bring to London. He comes to the home of the Bullivant's in preference to going to some London Hotel. It is then that Jarvis, a clever, fascinating man, though in reality a crook, contrives to get an invitation to the home of the Bullivantis. He attacks Ernest in the dark, secures the diamond and leaves for London the next day. Grumpy determines to find the diamond and Ruddock, his old servant, helps him. He follows Jarvis to London, where Jarvis intends to turn the stone over to Woolf, a Jew. At the time of the robbery Ernest is wearing a camelia with a hair tied around the stem, which Susan, the maid, put there. It is by means of this flower that the real thief is finally discovered and naturally it ends happily.

W 1 U C1 Page Seventy-Three DI IU OUR OW N TROPHY The latest addition to Oak Cliffas trophy case is the cup given by the A. Zeese Engraving Company for the best annual published in Texas last year. This cup was awarded under the auspices of the High School Press Association at Belton, Texas, April the thirteenth. As this was the first meeting of this association, Oak Cliff feels doubly honored by having won the cup, since the book was planned without any thought of winning a prize. It was also a late entry, having had a special invitation. Oak Cliff has to hold this trophy for three successive years to keep it. We are confident that the cup will remain in Oak Cliff for two years anyway. The representatives from Oak Cliff to the Conference were, Miss Griffin, Director, Miss Elizabeth Blaylock, Editor-in-Chief and Mr. O. P. Wolcott, Business Manager of the nineteen twenty-three Oak. U' ' El Page Seventy Four It I lj POPULARITY CONTEST Since every one likes to be admired and only a few achieve such greatness, the Oak management tried to analyze for on-coming generations exactly what qualities went to make up popularity. After we had wasted many weary hours of anxious thought we decided that we would conduct a little laboratory experiment in Oak Cliff Hi and to that end we distributed among the entire student body preliminary ballots and asked each student to nominate his favorite boy and his favorite girl. From these sixteen hundred votes the eight leading candidates- four boys and four girls-were chosen. The qualities of these candidates were discouraging to the more common people since they ran the gamut from beauty to wisdom. After the primary election, voting privileges were restricted to sub- scribers to the Oak and to those gaining advertising material for it. After all votes were counted, Miss Sadie Jackson, member of the January graduating class, was found to have the greatest number of votes among -the feminine contestants. Since Miss Jackson had more than her share of good looks and also a great deal of that intangible asset known as charm, we were not sur- prised at her election as Oak Cliffis most popular girl. Miss Artie Lee Sypert, a member of the June class, received the second highest number of votes and was accordingly given the second place and, together with Miss Jackson was presented at the HCadet Hopn as winner of this exciting contest. Artie Lee,s sweetness, sympathy, and beauty had so endeared her to all that the committee on this scientific question of popularity agreed with the popular verdict. Pat Weekley, beloved athlete and real sport, member of the January class, received the highest number of votes among the masculine candidates. To any one familiar with Oak Cliff Spirit this result could not be surprising because Pat has been the idol of all Oak Cliff athletic fans-and that means every one in O. C. between the ages of eight and eighty-for some three years. Whatever can be required for popularity Pat has it in abundance. The genial O. P. Wolcott, manager of the Oak, received the second highest number of votes among the boys and so to him is awarded the second place in Oak Cliff's heart. Mr. Wolcott is a handsome youth, possessing in marked degree a versatility of talent in varied lines. He was president of the Senior class, presi- dent of the Hi-Y, Captain of the Boy's Rifle Team and he filled all these positions with both ease and efficiency. His pleasant personality and his marked capabili- ties made it impossible for him to be overlooked in any popularity contest in Oak Cliff. In conclusion, the committee wishes to state that there seems to be no accepted formula for popularity. These four specimens we had chosen for us in O. C. Hi. all seem to have different qualifications to recommend them-the only one we find to be common to them all is loyalty to the Blue and White. They all gave the best they had to Oak Cliff, whereupon Oak Cliff royally accepted their gifts and proclaimed them to be typical specimens of her heart's desires. Just look them over on the next four pages and let us have your verdict-please. You say 6'They are sure winners." We say 6'Of courseli' 1:1 V ' 1:1 .

Everything that can be asked for in a first class coachvhonor, enthusiasm, knowledge. and understanding both of boys and games are found in the character of the coach of the Blue and White. Under his able leadership Oak Cliff has won two city championships in both basket ball and foot ball and one in trackg several district foot ball victories and it was runner up in the state championship foot ball race in 19223 several district championships in basket ball, a state A. A. U. championship in 1922, and the state championship in 19223. Judgecl by his victories lVlr. Allen is some coach and we judge him by both his victories and his personality, and on both counts we think he merits the title 'c0ak Cliffas Miracle Coach." 1 l ln J. I LJ' 'U Page Eighty-One Et E fee :LU zz: --iz. ...Yi MR. ALLEN Coach We put in this picture just to show you that Allen is a real guy! As a coach he is all there-vim, vigor, vitality, pep-punchhwhatever you call it-or all of them-are present in his dealings with our blue and white athletes. We tried to say something mean about all the football men and really ought not to pass up the coach with these few kind remarks but we like Allen and his good-looking wife too well to risk their friend- ship. Mn. CAMPBELL Track Director When in the hurry and rush of winning a few more loving cups, state championships and such-like Mr. Allen received a summons to investigate the village of Chicago upon l.ake Michigan, he looked about for a deputy and his gaze fell upon Mr. Campbell who was a forthwith duly selected to guide our destinies in the track events of the season. Mr. Campbell has been generous with both his time and his energy and has developed a team which is composed almost entirely of new material. ln his first mect the team made a very creditable showing and may certainly be counted upon to uphold Oak Cliffs honor in future events. ...L ...Ls P. M. KENLEY Business Manager Mr. Kenley is our most efficient business manager of Athletic events. He pushes the sale of tickets, attends to the advertising of games, buys the tickets, both meal and rail, for the boys and is general guardian of our financial situation. Wflien you consider the hundreds of dollars involved in school athletics each year, you will not be surprised to learn that Mr. Kenley sometimes wears a worried look but under his able management the O. C. athletic fund has grown and prospered-for which fact all 0. C. students return thanks to P. M. Kenley, Manager of Athletics. 1:15 -s - lm Page Eighty-Tivo Elf N C IU W. H. ADAMSON According to time-honored tradition the spirit of a school plays a large part in the winning of contests. Since this spirit IS most frequently made evident by yells, each school selects a yell leader. O. C. this year selected Carl Matthews to lead. The Oak Staff after careful observation came to the conclusion that the party engendering the greatest en- thusiasm and producing the greatest volume of sound, to show that enthusiasm was W. H. Adamson. He doesn't know that we are here- by electing him cheer leader-but judging by results he deserves the position. So, alto- gether, Oak Cliff, lets give fifteen for W. H. Adamson, the best cheer leader in Dallas! CARL MATTHEWS When Oak Cliff chose Carl to lead her spirit demonstrations, she showed unusual judgment, for Carl has certainly demonstrated unusual ability in this line. At every game, at every assembly, Carl has been present with his clever antics and weird gyrations to en- courage the student body to show its loyalty to Oak Cliff, whether the occasion be debate, football or basket ball. He led the snake dance celebrations with an ease and agility that would have caused envy in the heart of a classical dancer, he managed several affairs, honoring the various members of the Oak Cliff teams, and in the opinion of all of us has proven to be a very efficient and effective leader. W- H. ADAMSON CARL MATTHEWS PEP SQUAD A For many years an old-fashioned notion prevailed that women could not understand or appreciate sports but O. C. has done a great deal to demolish such a prehistoric notion, for our "pep" squad composed of some two hundred girls under the direction of Miss Lora Locke added color and life to the football games. When they formed the O. C. in the center of the field at Gardiner Park the grand stand gave them such an ovation that the more staid Dallasites thought an earthquake was upon them! - May the 'fpepi' squad grow and flourish to add to O. C.'s reputation as a school which does things right!

This should mean much to Oak Cliff for it is the first time in the history of the school that an Oak Cliff Team has finished a football season Umlefeated. The opposition encountered and the practically green material that Coach Allen had to pick his team from make these results the more remarkable. SUMMARY OF SEASON For the first time in the history of the school Oak Cliff is undefeated in the football world of sport. Such a record was made by the wonderful coaching of Mr. Allen, the de- termination to "do or die" for our principal, the backing given by the faculty and the student body, and outside loyal supporters, who are only connected with the school in heart and soul and the entire football squad. The prospects were rather gloomy when Oak Cliff entered the field this year, for practically all the fifty men were raw material, but all the gloom soon dispersed when they got down to We game game score heavy practice. met Denton Normal's second team in a which was a scoreless tie. Our second was with Crubb's second team. The was Oak Cliff 33, Grubbs 0. Then the team from Celeste was defeated to the tune of 20-6. An exhibition game was played at the fair with Central Fort Worth High, which the latter lost 7 to 0. This was the closest scare of the season in a regular game. The trip to McKinney proved fatal to the Hosts as the result here was Oak Cliff 14-, McKinney O. Upon her arrival in Dallas, Sherman High found that due to some mistake her opponent had another game scheduled. but she found a willing team in Oak Cliff and was our last game before the opening of the City Series. Unfortunately for her, Sherman received the small end of a forty-one to twenty- six score. Then began the annual struggle for the City Championship. XVe met Bryan High at Gardner Park where Bryan met its annual defeat 34-0. The North Dallas team scored 6 points while the Leopards ran up 53. The Oak Cliff Leopards won their fourth con- secutive City Championship by defeating the strong Forest High Lions by a score of 20 to 7 in a hotly contested game. Out playing their opponents throughout the game the Leopards crashed through the line, circled the ends, and opened up a passing game which gave the spectators a thrill as heretofore never ex- perienced at a local high school football fame. There is always a time and place for every- thing and we feel that here and now the names of the coach assistants should be mentioned and praise unlimited should be given to the loyal support and dependable service rendered by Messrs. Duncan and Lipscomb in the field activities. lt is always gratifying to have the loyal support of those that have been, but are not now, in school and those two boys have always been IOOW Football, having been trained in this activity from its infancy in Oak Cliff High. Mention should be made of our trainer, Dr. Denton, who, with his careful watch over our boys, has brought the team through the season in perfect trim. His medical knowledge, along with his loyal sup- port has been a great asset to Oak Cliff. ml as r 1 Page N mety F we xl 1: ig' S f if A. in E 'E E? ? 2 gg Page N inety-Six ' f inf- 4. -1-A E i Page N inety-Seven -- 1gL...A- ... 7, Z- UTE T as f :U CPN .

LYNCH Ouus LEE PARKS THE SEASON THE TEAM When the basket hall season opened, Coach Allen had only three letter men as the nucleus for his teamg Joe King, center, Bill Schroeder, forward, and Clen Higgins, guard. Never- theless when the call went out a wealth of new material responded. Dick Garvin, Orval Rhoads, W. C. Lynch, Edward Sasse, .lim Anderson and Odie Lee Parks were the most promising of the new stars. OAK CLIFF 55, LANCASTER 4 The first game arranged by Manager Kenley was with Lancaster High School. The day preceding the fray Joe King was elected cap- tain. ,Ioe was so proud of this honor that he really surpassed himself in the art of accurate goal-shooting and Oak Cliff began to think that maybe some of the last year's team would not be missed so badly after all. OAK CLIFF 50, RED OAK 4. Somewhat elated by his initial victory the Oak Cliff Leopard scented new victoriesg ac- cordingly he left his lair on the west bank of the Trinity and journeyed to Red Oak and came back with "half a century" score to its credit. OAK CLIFF 38, DENISON 6. Pleased with the results of his first foreign trip, the Leopard hied himself to Denison and forgetting all about his good manners again came home with a nice large score and rolled his eyes looking for new worlds to conquer. OAK CLIFF 44, DENTON 4. OAK CLIFF 30, IRVING 6. OAK CLIFF 34, HUEY SI PHILP 32. In these three games, the Leopard again proved his power and got himself into perfect condition to go hunting for his favorite' diet- the Dallas City Championship. The work of Higgins and Sasse at guard became very brilliant about this time and Allen's Leopard was in perfect condition when the city series opened. OAK CLIFF 31, FOREST AVE. 23. This game was hard fought throughout but the Oak Cliff team work was a little the smoother, and the Oak Cliff Leopard a little the more determined and tlIerefore carried home the first victory in the city series. EJ' In Page Nznety Nzne 1:1 A W I U BASKET BALL REPORTS OAK CLIFF 32, NORTH DALLAS 10. In the first appearance of North Dallas in this series, Oak Cliff departed with the large end of the score. Although the outcome was never in doubt, the Bull-dogs from the North put up a game fight and were still going strong at the last whistle. Schroeder stepped into the lime light with his excellent goal-shooting and Sasse proved that as a guard he had few equals. OAK CLIFF 18, BRYAN 15. In the third game of the city series Oak Cliff kept her record clean by a mighty stiff fight. The outcome was not assured until the final whistle and several times the Maroons made the Blue and White extend their powers to the uttermost. In the last few minutes of play, Captain King arose to the occasion and made three field goals in rapid succession, thus insuring O. C. three successive victories towards her coveted championship. OAK CLIFF 16, FOREST AVE. 14. When the last half of the city series opened, the Lions of Forest Ave. had recovered from their first attack of Leopard tremors and came out roaring a mighty challenge. The Leopard accepted the challenge and battled mightily. Forest showed some wonderful team work but the Leopards had a shade the best of it. Hopper and Schroeder did some mighty pretty work at ringing the basket, while Higgins and Sasse guarded Oak Cliff's goal with a mighty defense. OAK CLIFF 32, NORTH DALLAS 10. The first half of this game North Dallas held O. C. to a score of I2 while the Northern hunch tallied 9. In the second half, however, Oak Cliff felt the smaller brother should be taught his place and accordingly made 20 points while the new comer made I. It was a good game, nevertheless, and Oak Cliff is look- ing for still better things next year. OAK CLIFF 12, BRYAN 9. This last game of the city series was the hardest fought game of them all, Both teams were determined to prevent the other from scoring and a wonderful defensive game was the result. Oak Cliff's spectacular long shots caused her to win in the end and thus insured her an unclouded title to the city champion- OAK CLIFF 30, IRVING 12. OAK CLIFF 20, CHICO 16. OAK CLIFF 30, POLYTECHNIC 13. Oak Cliff went to the district meet and with her usual fighting spirit, the Leopard flashed through the district play and won the right to contend at Austin. In the game with Chico, the O. C. opponents had a one point lead at the close of the first half, but King and Schroeder did a little fancy goal shooting ship. that soon remedied this defect and gave O. C. the victory. The Polytechnic game was won by a safe and easy margin. Hopper, who had been ringing the baskets in a very steady fashion, lead the scoring with six field goals, while Captain King ranhim a close second with five baskets to his credit. OAK CLIFF 32, LEONARD 15. By winning the district meet at Denton, Oak Cliff gained the right to play Leonard for the North Texas championship. Oak Cliff had a good lead in the first half because of King and Hopper being in excellent form but the Leonard center--Parker by name, did some pretty long distance work from the center court and from that time on it was not quite so easy for Oak Cliff, although, as usual, the Leopard won. OAK CLIFF 44, KENNEDY 2. OAK CLIFF 24, WHITNEY 11. OAK CLIFF 22, STEPHENVILLE 15, OAK CLIFF 17, EL PASO 15. Oak Cliff went to Austin with a determina- tion to win the championship and because of their indomitable spirit they won it. The four games were won on fight. In the opening session, Oak Cliff won a run away game from Kennedy by a large score. The second game was more hotly contested hy Whitney and Oak Cliff had to call out her reserves. In the game with Stephenville. the wonderful goal shooting of ,loe King and the great defensive game of Ox Higgins together with Coach Allen's wonderful team work won the day for the Blue and W'hite and she entered the contest with El Paso for the coveted state crown. Because of Higgin's and Sasse's excel- lent guarding, at the end of the first half, Oak Cliff led I0 to 5. Both teams put up a mighty battle but Oak Cliff won in the end. Because of his excellent playing in the State series Joe King was selected for a posi- tion on the first state team and for the un- usual excellence of his guarding Higgins was given a berth on the second team. Each of the Leopards was given a gold medal, Oak Cliff High won the loving cup, and as an additional trophy the school was presented with the basket ball that won for it the championship of the state of Texas for the season of 1923. As a result of this victory Coach Allen re- ceived an invitation to bring his Leopards to Chicago to enter the National Championship there. As the 'AOak" goes to press, the Leopards are on their way. The results can not be predicted. This is Oak Cliff's first trip away from Texas and itis a long hard trip and a cold climate our Leopards are facing. Of one thing we are confident-whether O. C. wins or loses-the other National entries will know that they have been there! mf lo Page One Hundred Y, ' Q , . . l THE SEASON ,S RECORD Oak Cliff Lancaster .,., 4 Oak Cliff Red Oak ...... 4 Oak Cliff Denison ....,. 4 Oak Cliff Denton . ,..... 6 Oak Cliff Irving .,..V.........A.v .....A.. 1 2 Oak Cliff Forest Avenue ....... ....,... 2 0 Oak Cliff North Dallas ..... ,..,, . .10 Oak Cliff Bryan Street ........... ...., . .15 Oak Cliff Forest Avenue .....,. ...,.... 1 fl Oak Cliff North Dallas ..... ....,... 1 0 Oak Cliff Bryan .......... 9 Oak Cliff Chico ...... lo Oak Cliff Leonard ..,... 15 Oak Cliff Kennedy ...... 2 Oak Cliff Ft.

The teams played have been Wichita Falls, Waco, Kaufman, Bryan and Forest. After having lost two matches at Wichita Falls, the Oak Cliff team rallied on its home grounds and won the three matches scheduled here. At Waco, five matches were scheduled, but Oak Cliff won the first three played, giving them the victory. With Royer playing singles and Royer and Mayes doubles, Oak Cliff won the City Championship on April 10, and on the same evening defeated Kaufman. The Oak Cliff team is out for the district and the state championships this year. The Oak management Wishes to apologize for the lack of space given to such a winning activity but our book was complete before the Tennis Season really opened. We are stealing this space from that assigned to the basket ball team and we hope no one tells them about it until we are out of school, anyway. 1:1 1 at ' El Page One Hundred One U I I r..---.. ,...

Captain Kellam showed clcarly that the track men made no mistake when they chose him to lead the destinies of the blue and white track squad in 1923, when he took first place in both hurdle races in the city meet. We all knew that Kellam was a jazzy saxo man but we didn't know that he had the same amount of jazz as an athlete that he had as a musician until we saw him Zope in gracefully with a decided lead i11 the 220. Seth likes blonde girls too when he can get them but he has been known to look with favor upon brunettes when the blondes were scarce. TOM MAYES Tom had a great many members of the faculty and student body thinking that he was too lazy to move in out of the rain. After witnessing Thomas' performance in the running events at Lake Cliff the Oak management is forced to state publicly that his laziness must he monumental camouflage for he showed both speed and endurance there and the blue and white supporters are expecting Mayes to make even more points next year than he did this. Heres to you, Mayes. J. C. APPLEMAN The only yellow thing about ,lake at the city track meet was his sweater and a certain enthusiastic blonde rooter. The latter saffron object squealed with rapture as Jake cleared the rod and exclaimed, '4lsn't he just like a bird?" But all joking aside, ,lake sure did some pretty work in winning the high jump. He lacked 4+ inches of his own record when the other fellow quit and ,lake with true philosophical calm decided that as long as he had first place anyway, he might as well save his strength for the next meet and not waste his energies trying to out jump himself-Thanks to you Jake--Carry on.

O. T. C. This has been a very successful year in Oak Cliff Military Circles, and the greater portion of this success has been due to the strenuous efforts of Captain Day and Sergeant Rogers. Captain Day has set a high example of gentlemanly conduct and of personal honor for the members of his battalion and he has insisted upon his officers following this standard. Under his guidance O. C. students have learned a little more about respec: to their country's insignia, and about genuine patriotism than they knew previously. The raising and lowering of the colors now means something to all of us. As the Oak goes to press, we are all looking forward to Captain Day's repeating his performance of last year by once more presenting the winning company in the R. O. T. C. contest and bringing back the colors for O. C. to guard another year. Sergeant Rogers has been an able assistant to Captain Day this year as well as a first class Mbuddyi' to three-fourths of the battalion. He is just drill master and an efficient manager who has added greatly to the progress of the yearis work. All the battalion rejoiced when field orders were rescinded for the Sergeant and we sincerely hope that he will long remain here to help us support the honor and glory of Oak Cliff. The objects and aims of the R. O. T. C. are: To provide systematic military training at civil educational institutions for the purpose of qualifying selected students of such institutions for appointment as Reserve Officers in the military forces of the United States Army. To add to the educational resources of schools and colleges and give students a training which will be as valuable to them in their industrial and professional careers as it would be should the nation call upon them to act as leaders in its defence forces. TH E WOZENCRAFT DRILL On Friday afternoon at three-thirty, March 23rd on the Bryan Street High School Campus, the annual Wozencraft drill to determine the neatest and best drilied cadet was held. Each year a hundred dollar gold watch is given to the Cadet winning this drill tin memory of the late Colonel A. P. Wozencrafhl This year it was won by Captain Arthur Froleich of 'Forest Avenue High School. Major Weldon Dowess of Bryan won second place and Lieut. Dwight Horton won third place. Even though we had only one cadet place near the first, we can justly be proud of the four who represented the Second Battalion and say they are the best of the Corps. Our four representatives were: Major Hartsfield, lst Lieut. Horton, lst Lieut. Kirkpatrick, and 2nd Lieut. Robinson. ul, U ' a VU Page One Hundred Seven THE STAFF T. E. HARTSEIELD H. VEACH T.

Hartsfield Allan Chollar W. B. Pope Harold Veach Merwyn Starnes J. W. Pope The above team of ten members was selected to represent the second battalion in the City Rifle Meet. This meet occurred on the fifteenth of December and, contrary to precedent, Oak Cliff lostg for which sad fact, we offer no alibi. As an extenuating circum- stance we beg leave to state that it was a cold day and Oak Cliffis team was composed of real Southern boys and therefore did not shine under such adverse circumstances. Captain Wolcott was Oak Cliff's high point man, and he together with T. E. Hartsfield and O. L. Parks, was chosen for place on the All City Rifle Team. The year is not yet finished so just Watch out for O. C. in the next meet-providing it's a little warmer weather! ml 1 Page One Hundred Fourteen Elf 1U Loim LOCKE FANNY EISENLOHR INIAUDE LUMPKIN Instructor Assistant Pianist GIRIJS PHYSICAL TRAINING DEPARTMENT Practically all of the girls of the two under classes, as well as many girls of the upper groups, are enrolled in the gymnasium classes. Under Miss Locke's supervision the work has moved along smoothly this year in spite of the ever increasing numbers. In addition to the regular class work-the drills of the '6Pep', Squad were developed in this department. In the spring of each year the gymnasium classes always present a public pageant to display their work. For the past two years this pageant has been a thing of beauty in costuming and of grace in performance, therefore we are all looking forward to what this spring will offer. At the close of last year's work three medals were offered for the three girls showing the greatest proficiency in gymnastic drillg Miss Vola Jackson won the gold medal, Miss Lois Fincher the silver medal, and Miss Alice Reynolds the bronze medal. These three students deserve much credit for their victory over the several hundred other candidates. The girls showing the greatest proficiency in gymnastic work are selected to be members of the girls rifle team. This team is instructed in the use of the rifle by members of the R. 0. T. C. The instructors report unusual proficiency in the art of locating the nbullls eye." Altho one of them did bashfully admit that the ladies powdered their noses between shots and sometimes loosed a feminine squeal at the sound of the gun.

We love to hear her laugh, we love to hear her talk-She does both frequently! Because she is so generous with her time and energy to help out the under-dog land no one except Miss Alec-and ourselvesfknows just how often we have been the under-dog in our tussle with this yearis annualjg because We believe that if our readers will just think, for one second about her they will be in the proper humor to appreciate our jokesg and, lastly, because we love her we devote the spirit of these last pages to her. Miss ALEXANDER PREAMBLE Wlhen in the course of human or inhuman events it becomes necessary for one fellow to roast another and even up the score he holds against him and to pretend it all in friendship, a decent respect for his own hide will cause him to label his remarks a joke and since every one aspires to be a humorist, Whether practical or otherwise, it may get by. If you think any of our barbs are meant for you just remember 'Steve himself" and take care. ADVERTISEMENT Do not let anyone fool you into thinking that our faculty censor is good natured. The things that woman has done to our best jokes and pictures are a crime. Why she turned down one perfectly lovely snap shot because the lady wore rolled hose and when she discovered our manager with a picture of a ladyas knees! Well! liis ears stayed red for a week. Once when our editress let slip a causal remark about a certain member of the faculty, the resulting explosion was heard some distance. And the poor editress had to go powder her nose! But we've ganged on her. The following pages are fairly innocuous, but we are compiling a little private edition of the ones she rejected and will circulate it on demand! The line forms to the right! Thank you! U l l Page One Hundred Nineteen CALE DAR June-A few seniors pretend that they are sorry school is over but all the innocent, naive underaclassmen rejoice greatly and openly at their escape from labor. Our weary and worn faculty scatter in all directions- those who were thrifty flitting to New York or California while those who were extravagant stay in Dallas. About ninety-eight per cent of O. C. High sleep sixteen out of each twenty-four hours. July-The fighting Leopards may be found-dis- tributing ice and flirting with the young housewives. Alec Pegues says that he is a trifle over weight' and that he believes ice slinging may improve his figure! August-Pegues weighs himself on some guaranteed scales, and Hnds that he has gained seven pounds! He confesses, however, that the exercise has been good for his wind. September-Athletic council of Dallas frames some new rules that will automatically remove from our midst Graham, Rhew, Ward and Company! September 15-General Assembly for everybody in the auditorium. Between getting instructions in the system C?J of registering, receiving blue books, and greeting old friends, a right busy day is enjoyed by all. All the upper class men get together and plan ideal programs for themselves. September 18-Wild stampede at 8:30 when the freshmen enroll-that is-start to enroll. At 9:30 to this fermenting mass is added some two hundred 1 A's. Help! At 5 p. m. some freshmen are still in line at the book room but the sophs are gone. In spite of a wild desire to reminisce the faculty have been too busy to talk-altho' we did catch a few remarks from Miss Brown and the Deacon about shows in New York! QThey didn't mention the courses at Columbia D September 19-juniors and Seniors with great aplomb and self-control complete registration in one day. The only blot on our fair record was the fact that most programs so laboriously planned on the fifteenth were completely upset. With a weary moan the faculty gindsdts aching head and cries: H1549 children in two ays. ' September 20-Regularlessons for most pupils-a few got lost Cthey were not fish eitherj because the shacks are numbered most peculiarly-I and I being exactly alike. The first facetious remarks on having lessons in H and in L. are heard-We suppose these will be standard jokes until they sprout whiskers and die of old age! September 21-The Hrst football game of the season is announced. "Crinkle-top" Bryan and Overton Holt display a great deal of pep in the sale of tickets-we suspect that they are working on a commission. September 22-Football: Oak Cliff-0, Denton Normal- 0. Who-except Mr. McCoy-said O. C. would not be in this year's race? September 25-Most of us feel as if we had passed a year's life time in the past week. Have we ever done anything except go to school? September 26-The 4 A's meet. They have a secret- everyone of them said so-Huh-We'll find it out. One of our gentlemen friends could coax a blue bird into fighting a turkey cock! He'll get it and tell us! September 27-Girls' Club have their first business meeting. They announce that they are now the Girls' Reserve. Well, well, and we were just thinking that the modern girl didn't have any reserve! September -28-Assembly-Jack Spears makes a speech. He is some linguist-but it doesn't mean anything. September 29-Football: Oak Cliff 33, Grubbs Vo- cational College O. On the strength of this game Dallas sport writers pick Forest Hi to win the City meet. October 2-201 looks empty and lonesome. Cheer up C?J Miss Graves is still with us and will soon remedy that condition. Mr. Whittlesey is to assist her. And we always thought jim was such a good fellow, too! October 3-Rumors of a fish and minnow meeting. Discussions on bait and hooks by upper-classmen. Mr. Adamson warns the boys that every one in O. C. is undersized according to the hazing law and that offen- ders will be severely dealt with by the chief game warden. October 4-Girls' Reserve has some "foolish fun"- thus proving that boys are not the only ones who can act silly-President Hill really surpassed herself! October 5-4 B's meet and very intelligently fwe had to say thatl elect O. P. Wolcott, President. They discuss rings for the first time-but not the last! October 6-Holiday! Children's day at the Fair. Some of us who were feeling quite grown up forgot to resent being classed as children, altho Earl H-did suggest the name should be changed to Students' Day. We are against that because once when we were young Miss Hammock told us that a student was one who studied and we are afraid Earl's classification wouldn't suit us any too well! Football: Oak Cliff 20, Celeste 6. October 9-Salesmen's Day. "join the Girls' Reserve?" "Buy a note book?" "Subscribe for the Acorn?" "Save up for your Oak?" October 10-Mr. Hamilton announces that there will be no change in the price of lunch tickets and Mrs. Lindsay announces that there will be no change in the luncheon menus. We believe them both. October 11-Another 4 A meeting-still secret stuff. Our gentleman friend ran out on us and went to flirting with a Junior. October 12-Pep meeting for the big game tomorrow- Evening Journal announces that O. C. spirit may be depended upon to ight even though the blue and white is crippled by the loss of so many veterans. Thanks, Horace! October 13-Friday the thirteenth! A blackrcat strolled through the lower hall! Bad luck, nothing! Oak Clili Hi reports to Fair Ground. Some Cheer Leaders Some Pep Squad. Some Game. Score: Oak Cliff 7, Ft. Worth 0. October 16-Shades of Uncas! A real Indian Chief in a real Indian costume gives a real Indian dance to a real interested audience. On the level-We believe that Carl can out-yell him any way! October 17-4 B's again discuss rings. With unusual originality the class is divided into two groups each fostering a unique plan: One side favors a simple design of an ice wagon engraved on a Roman gold oval. The opposition shrieks that this will be mistaken for a hearse for dead ones. The other side wish a crouching Leopard chastely engraved on green gold but their opponents cry that this may be mistaken for a tom-cat on the alley fence. A member of the faculty remarks that either design would well represent the class, the one as graduating from an asylum, the other as graduat- ing from a Zoo! Webb mistakes rudeness for oratory and has to be called. U El Page One Hundred Twenty Ml gm T1 AL W W GEL mm- ,L,,,,,,,.T,,,-,-., ...

It is really pathetic but Mr. McCoy was wrong again and O. C. won the City Championship. They left town and won the district. Finally they sneaked down to Austin and won the State Cham- pionship. They must have sneaked because none of the Dallas papers seemed to be aware of the victory. We only found it out by accident when a friend sent us a San Antonio paper-That little resort not having much news and not being particularly prejudiced against us gave the event a whole page. Thanks! March 6-Track started. Seth Kellam elected Cap- tain. If he can track as well as he can sax we'll be lucky again. March 7-A new secret order has been formed-They wiggle their ears.

January 11-No one having complained at the Rotary luncheon our orchestra was emboldened to try to spread its noise around the world. It nearly succeeded. After their concert at W. F. A. A. notices came in from many stations commending the performance. Bill Grace says by Radio is the safest way for a flutist to flute. They haven't learned to send lemons by wireless yet. January 12-Senior Day-Merciful Caesar, did you ever hear such a noise? We are reliably informed that the Senior Class banqueted at the Oriental that night and some of them even danced! January 15-Lion Tamers organize. The odor of cheeses called out the Board of Health. O-owah! Long may the cheeses cheese! January 16-City Rifle meet. O. C. lost. We privately think that if Captain Wolcott hadn't been out the night before with the Lion Tamers he wouldn't have felt the cold so much. The fact that he was our first man indicates that he is pretty good even if he is chilly. January 17-Girls Rilie Club meets. Ruby Blanton and Martha Hirsh made the highest score and were to receive two theatre tickets as a prize.

January 22-Exams are upon us. It is a new system- just four times as bad as the old.

January 23-Exams going strong in the second round! Mr. Henry evolves the bright idea of letting one of his pupils grade the papers-only to find Mr. Kenley beat him to the idea. January 24-Exams still leading on points, student body weakening in the third round. Miss Baker beats the men out with a new idea-she lets each student grade his own paper. January 25-Exams win the decision-Student body knocked out entirely. The faculty ran out of sensible questions and these are part of the results: "Was the Renaissance a lady?" CWe should say decidedly not.l "Is Latin a chemical change?" KNO-Just suspended animation.l January 26-No school until twelve-thirty, but who could sleep and not be haunted by the Helen-Pink atrocities known as report cards?

The instructor said his nerves and sense of humor were both shell shocked. October 20-Football: Oak Cliff 14, McKinney 0. The only trouble with this game was that it was played out of town. Dallas sport writers still hear the Lion roar and feed sugar to the North Dallas Bull-dogs. October 23-Pat Weekley stubbed his toe, skinned his shin, and dented the top step. The resulting pain kept him awake all day even in journalism class where most of us sleep any way. October 24-Music Assembly-Some Carusos in our midst even if they didn't all keep time.

November 9-Football: O. C. 34, Bryan St. Hi 0! Our Leopard says that wolves never did bother him and that he is now expecting to overthrow the ancient idea that the Lion is king of beasts. It's a Leopard! Mr. McCoy states that Oak Cliff played in her usual luck but that Bryan was slightly off form. How unusual! November 10-Bea McCarty holds a private dance.

Page One Hundred Twenty-Eight E Y Page One Hundred Twenty-Nine 'Z ' 'Y K r I-in Uv' I FRANKNESS On April tenth the Oak Staff heaved a sigh of relief-The Oak was done except for the proof reading. Time would now hang heavily on the hands of the hard-working UD staff. They were used to a little excitement and now all was serene. Suddenly one worthy Wight suggested that it might relieve the prevail- ing calm if we could express our real opinion of each other. The idea spread. The staff no longer speaks as its members pass through our thumb-marked cor- ridors. We append a few of the more prominent remarks: O. P. Wolcott, Business Manager, says: Singleton? The big bluffer only brought in one quarter page of ad- vertising ! " Elizabeth? Good looking but too fond of bossing and also of Gordon." Yarrell? Hunk of Cheese. I had to help rewrite his R. O. T. C. Stufff' "lVlcCann? Well, he can draw if you can stand his silly talk while heis at it. I can't." uAdviser? Help! She has a perverted sense of humor and plays prac- tical jokes-she's bossy and has an awful temper-You ought to see her throw things! There may be worse ones-but-I" Elizabeth Blaylock, Editor, says: "Singleton? He's nice looking." "Wolcott? Too much like Bubba! He's bossy and too fond of Jeanne. Of course, he did help me somelw "Yarrell? I had a date with him once-that was enoughli' "Adviser?-Too bossyl She double crossed me once but I kinda, like her anwayf' Erma Griffin, Adviser, says: 4'Singleton? I never did want him on the staff-he couldn,t learn Caesar!" "Wolcott? The only dumb bell I ever liked-I can't account for the fact that I havenlt killed him off! I have to diagram my jokes and then explain the diagram. He's all right tho, and I,d pick him again if we were to start overf, "Elizabeth? She's fine when she isn't disciplining O. P. or mooning over Gordon. Good worker but she gets mad sometimes at the same time I doin "Yarrell? I suppose they call him uKitty" because one can't mention him without being cattyf' '4lVlcCann?-Least said-soonest mended. He can promise more and do 'less than any one else in O. Cf' The Staff says: '4Wolcott? What did he ever do anyway, except cut class and pose in the halls a little? No one ever saw him workin "Elizabeth? Pretty soft to be an editor. She just passed the buck and made us all work while she took in the laurelsf' "Adviser? Some bossy old maid! ,lust because she likes to work she needn't think we all have the same disease. She never can under- stand our social necessities must interfere with work occasionallyf' All of us say: 'LWanted: A League of Nations, A Hague Conference, or an Inter- national Court, to arbitrate our differences and bring back the dove of peace.

Meetings: Everyday. Conduct: Each member retires to solitude and soliloquizes. fNote: The following soliloquies were caught by wireless. The reporter of them prefers to remain anonymousj. WEBB SOWDEN "It surely does make me peevish the way some of the folks up at school call me con- ceited-I'm not! If I could locate anyone else that was better looking or smarter than myself l'd admire them greatly, but so far, I haven't been able to find a single one of that sort. The way those girls hang around me is disgust- ing. I have done everything but hit them- I've been rude--I've broken dates-I've taken them to places and flirted with other girls out- rageously-even waitresses-but they still cling. Of course they are a good sort but still not in my class. So far I have found no one else who is!" GORDON IHARSH A'I'm good-Illl admit that. My sea-gray eyes so deeply overshadowed by intense black eye-brows certainly do mow down the ladies. ll never had a real idea in my life, but I have so skillfully masked this condition by unceas- ing use of words-wordsawords, that some people think Iim smart. I pretend to think so too, but really at this midnight hour 4'Never- more" is my real estimate of my intelligence? I canlt understand why I can't get two dates with the same girl. I always improve them the first time. I correct their grammar and their pronunciation4I talk about myself-I wonder 1vliy?', T. E. HARTSFIELIJ HI know that if I had not been so young during the past world war, I could have been master of the situation. Marshal Foch may have been a great military tactician but in my military exams I have displayed as much knowledge as Ferdie himself. Captain Day said so. I have never been given a chance to use all my knowledge either in school or on the parade ground but there will come a day when it will be given vent to and I will have my rightful place in military historyf, HAROLD KANTZ HI am the gentleman crook. My line is love and automobile accessories. I take the ladiesvone or two or three at a time but I have a waiting list for my customers in the foresaid accessories. My specialties are Cadillac horns and radiator decorations. For reference I can suggest Ruth R. Eliza- beth D. and Dorothy W. in the love line but my mechanical line extends from Oak Cliff's western boundary to Highland Park's northern boulevardsf' O. P. WOLCOTT 4'Self analysis is my besetting sin. I never could resist temptation. I shall now analyze myself. Physically-Ilm perfect-I like my eyes, with their attractive lashes and shining surface-my hair, especially when well per' furned-the shape of my nether limbs in their shiny putts certainly makes a hit with me. I've got good sense-even if I don't study. I know enough already-except in Chemistry. If we only had a woman teacher in that I could get by there, too. My nice manners suit ladies. I do hate to see cheap jewelry on my lady friends. Personally I'm like Ivory soap-l1ly white and 99727 pure-I dance but don't like to-I never drink-I never smoke -I never spoon-I never swore but once and that was at the printer--'fthere is where I lost lk of Ifkl I never shot craps but once- and that was at Temple. I won-but that's where I lost my other Vgfk. Out Side of those two lanses, I am a lily of the field! l like myself." ELIZABETH BLAYLOCK HI want to be a wild woman-I'm going to bob my hair-Yes-I am tool I know its beautiful and curly and all that but just the same I can't capture the man I want while I am so gentle-looking. If my kinky locks could just float loose in the breeze-I believe I'd be more popular-Now don't tell me I have handsome eyes--that's not enough any more-I've used them until the muscles fare sore and O. P. still falls for Jeanne-She has bobbed hair-Iim going to bob mine, too. If he don't fall then, I'll blondine it-I am de- termined to trap him. Of course, I do not love him-I merely hate to let anyone escape +Give me those scissors-O-my hair-my beautiful hairgllyhat have I done?" UI In I Page One Hundred Thlrtylf' ve Fl 'U NOTICE TO SUBSCRIBERS This is not a humorous articleg .it has no business in this division of this bookg it is serious stuff. The wherefore of its whichness is that the "Little Pettie" that it's about was so efficient in getting her own way fin helping usj that she wouldnat let us put this en- comium, panegyric, monody or eulogy on a page of honor-here it is in spite of her- We desire to give space here in paying tribute to one who has given us unstintingly of her time and judg- ment in the issuance of this annual-Miss Erma A. Griffin. One who has not only been loyal and faithfulg but unselfish to the Faculty, and to the student body and to the best interests of the school in every respect. Without her valuable assistance the Oak would have been stinted, the branches blighted and not to change the ufiggern of speech too suddenly-failure would have crowned our efforts. Endowed with a natural gift of humor, she is most generous in sharing this gift with those with whom she comes in contact-always willing to help unto the UIICIIIIOSI. In summing up her activities in school life we feel that the expression used so frequently and so expressively by the student body will express what we wish to say, were we putting it in a,nut shell-i.e. "She seen her duty and done noble." May her shadow never grow less! ELIZABETH BLAYLOCK, Editor O. P. WOLCOTT, Business Manager She won't like this-we understand she's on a diet. mf 1 Page One Hundred Thirty-Six U n I THE Emp Q - ,W f X f X u p I j kg f X X 9 if N eff X 7 ' f .SQ X5?
