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

UI IU DEDICATION 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. 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
