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.
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,
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.
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.

We think it essentially fitting that we
dedicate this slender volume to our own
keeper of books--Miss Laura Alexander. 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.
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!
