Here" would be more appropriate for us in our present

far no casualties have been reported from the neighbor-
hood. The instructor said his nerves and sense of humor
were both shell shocked.
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
if they were bored!

our note books. Seniors are sick too. .g
October 26-Mr. L.-and Miss A- amuse the faculty

tions of red and black are favored by the best models.
November I-Mr. Veach loses his heart to a pair of
coal black eyes. He lost all his common sense some time
November 2-Sadie Jackson and Evelyn Morton came
to school without using any cosmetics. Great concern
felt for their health. The reform did not last long.
November 3-Football: O. C. 41, Denton Hi 26.

her season but that at the opening of the city series the

November 6-First edition of Hi School Weekly out-
It's the only free thing we have received so far this year!

ing the most4Acorn subscriptions. We are not jealous
because We didn't compete.

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!

act funny-He's funny anyway.

the whole thing over in ten days-great expectations!

buy an Oak. As it is we have to dodge solicitors every
minute. One even called up at home last night.
November 16-The Librarian votes for Dixie in the
popularity contest. She admires heavy weights-look
at her best friend!
November 17-Mr. Whittlesey discovers Pegues
chewing tobacco so he stands between him and the con-
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
organize themselves into a hunting posse and search the
surrounding hills and dales. The child was found
across the street from her home but three of our cadets
were not seen until the next day.
-November 22-Well the day got a good start with a
sing-song assembly but ended up with ninety-two
people in Sing-sing No. 201.
November 23-4 B's measure for rings after Mr. Adam-
son has been called in to arbitrate the trouble.

his hat is the same size as the ring minus the 1.

usually clean and tidy.
November 29-Football: O. C. 20, Forest Hi 7. Mr.
McCoy is forced to admit most reluctantly, that O. C.
has a real team. We are all afraid that next year the
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!
November 30-Thanksgiving-no school, .
December 1-Medical attention-no school. Majestic
party for members of football team and their ladies-
joe and Dorothy were both there. Very strange!

time. Gordon Marsh develops a streak of oratory that
ought to make him great. Miss Holiday gives a terrible
history test. Q
December 5-Clean speech campaign started-Use
Ivory Soap-99 44-100 pure! First loving cup of
the year presented. Football men presented with boxes

December 6-Miss Rogers has lost her voice. She had
to phone 163 people yesterday about absences and it
was too much!

to prepare a lesson-Alma Carson couldn't study on
account of a sore elbow-That elbow has been chronic
