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
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
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.
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-
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
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.
