4 4 I g J - l CALENDAR-Continued December 12-Senior Play Practice. Joe's favorite plea is "Miss Aduddell Iet's do the last act over again" Why the last act Joe? Naughty! Naughty! December 13-Miss Pringle announces that she knows every word in the dictionary. Her class believes GJ her! Toreador! December 14-Earl Lindberg is about the worst kisser our stage director has ever met with. Too much classic, Earl, and not enough jazz, makes better Hamlets than Romeos. December 15-The Four Horsemen has a record run at the Melba-Hair-oil prices go up! December I8-Pat Weekly appears in tan corduroys with exquisite pink buttons and inserts-Lo! How the mighty have fallen! December 1,9-Buster Hollanquist wept because some one swiped his stacomb. He's afraid Jack Patton will get another model! December 20-Miss Bell arrives at school late for the first Ol time this year. At that she beat three other women and five of the men teachers here! December 21-Dixie sat on the cage ball in the gym. It busted! Help! Acorn Staff party at Isora Shutt's home. Lots of fun. December 22-If anybody in O. C. worked today except Miss Griffin-we'd like to know who it was. She only did it to be contrary. . December 25-Parties, Beaux, Dances, Presents. December 26-Shows, Girls, Rides, Dinners. December 27-Clothes, Fun, Rest, Dances. December 28-Parties, Shows, Girls, Beaux. December 29-Sweet Mamas, Dances, Shows, Fun. 1923 January l-Dance ..... ............... A larm Clock. January 2-More than the usual number of tardies and absences. Mr. Leftwich forgot his alarm clock and was late to school. We favor a 201 for teachers. January 37Captain Day calls an oflicers' meeting at 8 o'clock in the morning. Wouldn't that make a lovely title for a dolefiil dirge? January 4-Esma's watch is much admired by all beholders. We wonder who gave it to her? January 5-Marie announces that the Senior4playAis going to be a scream. She ought to know-she is in it! January 6-Senior Play! Joe made a grand rich Yankee but the cook's biscuit? Least said soonest repaired because some repairs come high. January B-Day by day in every way we're getting more and more nervous-exams loom over us. January 9--For once in his life W. J. Bryan is taking 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. 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. The rest of the club insisted on examining the target and discovered the holes to have been made with an ice pick. Since Martha had the pick all bets were declared off and the Majestic kept its tickets. January 18-Elizabeth Mansfield develops a new giggle and has her bob trimmed a la militaire. January 19-Commercial Club holds Senior banquet at the Jefferson. Those Seniors are becoming positively swollen with pride and fancy food. January 20-Another Saturday. The Mother's Club entertains Seniors at a Majestic party. We hope people let up on the Senior stulf soon for some of our older 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- Coate . 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? January 29-Six new chicken coops-two hundred new fish. Won't somebody please tell Dallas that we need an aquarium here? January- 30-Juniors and Seniors register-much consternation on 'part of Sowden 8: Co. when they discover one of Miss Baker's classes has been given to P. M. January 31-About half of the students found their classes-The other half didn't look! February l-Gordon Marsh is selected to keep a study hall. It's time to laugh. February 2-Boy's team of debaters journeyed to Okla. City to debate. They got lots of experience but lost the decision of the judges. February 5-Musical assembly for violiniste. . We 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. February B-Basket ball game. As in football, the papers announce that Forest has the best team. Of course O. C. always wins without a team. O.C.16Forest14 February Q-Assembly to give the basket ball boys a little training in public speaking. We noticed only nine errors in Grammar-Parks made eight.
