Our Senior Sponsor
Some day we may lie called upon to settle
momentous questions and we shall be considered
fortunate indeed if we have near us a counselor as
wise as the one who has helped to solve our Senior
worries. Her patience has been unceasing, her
wisdom has been unfailing, her kindness and sweet
generosity have been unending. Among the finest
and sweetest memories of our high school days the
most prominent will always be that of Miss Cooper,
our friend and Senior class sponsor.

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.
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.
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.
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

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.

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'

A SYNOPSIS OF SCENES
ACT. I.-The Library at Mr. Bullivant's.
ACT. II.-The Same Room as at the End of Act I.
ACT III.-Mr. ,larvisis Rooms in London.
IV.--The Same as Acts I and II.
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.

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.

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
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
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."

Oak Cliff High School has been accused of always being lucky
and never has this luck been more apparent than on the day Howard
Allen was sent here to coach our athletic teams. 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
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."
Et E fee :LU
zz: --iz. ...Yi
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-
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.
P. M. KENLEY
Mr. Kenley is our most efficient business manager
of Athletic events. He pushes the sale of tickets, attends

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,

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!
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!

The team has had a most successful season having won every game played with the excep-
tion of one, tying Denton Normal 0-0. 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
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-
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.

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
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
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.

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
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!

Oak Cliffis tennis team composed of Royer, Mayes and Quick has been very
successful so far this year, having won every series of matches played. 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
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.

Rhoads is a Latin shark. He plays a good game but has a
fatal weakness. 'Tis curiosity. You may expect to see him in specs
next year, he has strained his eyes so trying to find out just how he
was going to be uraggedi' in this publication.
ODIE LEE PARKS
In football Pug tackles with everything from the water bucket
to the goal postsg in basket ball this peculiar technique has gained
him the title of Octopus. Octopus has beautiful wavy hair which he
pretends to hate but we even know what kind of hair curlers he uses.
His windmill tactics helped us to be nchampsn. -
When Ed first put on a basket ball suit he was so modest that
we feared we were going to have to sew ruffles on his trunks. Now
he's so reckless that he just wears one sock. Sasse is some guard,
so fast that sometimes he guards his own feet out from under him.

KELLAM MAYES APPLEMAN
Sl-ITH KI-ILLAM, Captain.
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 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.

CAPTAIN DAY Sunc1cAN'1' Rooms
R. 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
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.

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!

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.

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.
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.
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!

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
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
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
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.

with a Junior.
October 12-Pep meeting for the big game tomorrow-
Evening Journal announces that O. C. spirit may be

is crippled by the loss of so many veterans. Thanks,

strolled through the lower hall! Bad luck, nothing!
Oak Clili Hi reports to Fair Ground.
Some Cheer Leaders
Some Pep Squad.
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.

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.

things seriously-so are the rest of the Seniors!
Januaig 10- The O. C. Hi orchestra plays at the
Rotary lub luncheon. For once we are sorry our
tastes run to Ford automobile horns instead of iiddles.
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.

January 15-Lion Tamers organize. The odor of

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

brethern are near the bursting C?l point now.
January 22-Exams are upon us. It is a new system-
just four times as bad as the old. You have one exam in
each subject, each day for four successive days-It
sounds like a Doctor's prescription "one before each
mealgnd one before retiring." They are not sugared-
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

all enjoyed it even though the lady wouldn't play jazz.
February 6-New Seniors consider ordering commence-
ment invitations. If it takes them as long as it did to
decide on their rings they will not receive them before
Christmas. Mr. Wolcott suggests they might combine
business with pleasure and send out some wedding in-
vitations at the same time.
February 7-Girls' Reserve has ua Jinx program-no!
that doesn't mean the faculty did it.

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. Mr. Adamson
had to tell the faculty they must attend assemblies even

November 8-We havekfoundout about that 4 A's
secret-It's a pennant with a life-sized Leopard. We
don't see how that many people kept such a big secret.
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.
The punch was delicious even if it did make Holly Baillio
act funny-He's funny anyway.

the whole thing over in ten days-great expectations!
November 14-Mary finallyC?j consents to give Webb

veniently opened window-Pegues swallows convul-
sively, turns pale, absent next day! Cruel james!
November 20-Football: O. C. 53, N. D. 6. The baby
bull-dog bit us once and then we had to teach him how
to bow down to King Leopard. Journal sport title
"North Dallas Bull Dogs Score on Oak Cliff." One
and one quarter columns of dope on the Viking Spirit-
less than half a column on Oak Cliff's part in the game.
But we were there! New song by sport Writers entitled,
"Watch the Forest Lion kill the Oak Cliff Leopard."
November 21-Baby girl lost-so cadets and gym girls

November 29-Football: O. C. 20, Forest Hi 7. Mr.
McCoy is forced to admit most reluctantly, that O. C.

journal will offer the gold football awards with a proviso
attached that they will be allowed to select the winner
regardless of scores-let the Leopard Roar!

December 1-Medical attention-no school. Majestic

Next time we are going to furnish their food ourselves
so Joe won't get sick.
April ll-Manager gets a farewell mash note. He
suspects our editor and adviser. The latter confesses
to the truth in seventeen distinct and separate ways.
It is too much for O. P. He faints. Editor revives him
and they work till 10 p. m. Editor is tired so she con-
fesses too! She implicates Misses Brown, Alexander
Colquitt, Bridges. Moore and Gowdy. Mr. Wolcott
swears he will never trust a woman again!
April 12-Wolcott broke his word-we saw him in the
hall with Ruth Roberts this morning.
April 13-Assembly-Miss Lavendar of T. U. talks on
Caesar, Virgil, and ponies. We didn't like to boast
but we bet we know more about the latter than she does
even though she has us skinned on the former!
April 16-Librarian gets peevish and delivers some
"see me at once" notices. Result: 201 overflows.
April 17-Miss Glover gives a new style exam. She
does not ask a single question covered in the lesson.
And we always thought she was sweet, too!
Agril 18-Physical Training girls make lovely cheese
clot costumes for the May festival.
April 19-Louis Blaylock sells Blue Star Chewing Gum
He intends to buy a pistol with his gains-but the gum
is so rank his buyers all become ill and he has to pay
out all profits on Damage Suits. Orville Kiker was his
associate in this nefarious business.
Apri1A20--The first 120 pages of the Oak are all in!
So are its directors. It speaks well for their dispositions
that they are still on speaking terms with each other.
April 23-Artie Lee Sypert wins. She wore Gordon's
form-fitting grey sweater at the surveying class and
would have been supremely happy if Gordon hadn't
paid so much attention to Elizabeth.
April 24-Special surprize assembly. Mr. Adamson
calls for Editors and Managers, of the Oak and Acorn.
He presents them each with a beautiful gold pin-
specially designed to represent the school and a guard
letter to represent their work. Ahem! We knew it.
Miss Griffin and Miss Eisenlohr were so crazy about
their pet proteges this year that they were bound to
frame up something.
April 25fKathleen Barnes comes to school without
her ear ring. Says 1t's making her face one-sided!
So that's what's the matter.
April 26-Boys' team won the city debate. Didn't
we tell you to watch out for President Marsh! The
only thing he can't out talk around here is our Editor.
He says whenever he looks at her his tongue gets twisted.
We think she is good looking too!
April 27-Seniors meet. They decide to buy some
statues for O. C. We suggested the Restless Age and
Floradora-even offering to furnish the models but they
decided in favor of Minerva and Diana!
April 28-Another Saturday-The Senior Play! Mary
Claire Hirted as if she were used to it and Ward surely
did enjoy the devotion of his niece Marcia. It was a
good play but what else can you expect of the June
class of '23?
April 3Q-Scholarship assembly. We certainly have
some brains out here in O. C.
May 1-Bridge parties have broken out among the
faculty.. Miss Maloitl started it-Do you suppose the
poor things really enjoy that game? Why don't they
take up Mah Jong?
May 2-Oak Staff has a May breakfast in the woods and
are all late to school in consequence. Miss G- squared

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
Erma Griffin, Adviser, says:
4'Singleton? I never did want him on the staff-he couldn,t learn
"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. Address: Oak Staff, Oak Cliff High School,

Membership: Limited to Charter Members-Qualified by their ordinary
Conduct: Each member retires to solitude and soliloquizes.
fNote: The following soliloquies were caught by wireless. The reporter of
them prefers to remain anonymousj.
"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!"
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
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,
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
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."
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

beautiful hairgllyhat have I done?"

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.
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
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.
