CALENDAR-Continued April 10-Assembly-Celebrate return of our team from Chicago. We love them even if they did lose. Next time we are going to furnish their food ourselves so Joe won't get sick. April ll-Manager gets a farewell mash note. He suspects our editor and adviser. The latter confesses to the truth in seventeen distinct and separate ways. It is too much for O. P. He faints. Editor revives him and they work till 10 p. m. Editor is tired so she con- fesses too! She implicates Misses Brown, Alexander Colquitt, Bridges. Moore and Gowdy. Mr. Wolcott swears he will never trust a woman again! April 12-Wolcott broke his word-we saw him in the hall with Ruth Roberts this morning. April 13-Assembly-Miss Lavendar of T. U. talks on Caesar, Virgil, and ponies. We didn't like to boast but we bet we know more about the latter than she does even though she has us skinned on the former! April 16-Librarian gets peevish and delivers some "see me at once" notices. Result: 201 overflows. April 17-Miss Glover gives a new style exam. She does not ask a single question covered in the lesson. And we always thought she was sweet, too! Agril 18-Physical Training girls make lovely cheese clot costumes for the May festival. April 19-Louis Blaylock sells Blue Star Chewing Gum He intends to buy a pistol with his gains-but the gum is so rank his buyers all become ill and he has to pay out all profits on Damage Suits. Orville Kiker was his associate in this nefarious business. Apri1A20--The first 120 pages of the Oak are all in! So are its directors. It speaks well for their dispositions that they are still on speaking terms with each other. April 23-Artie Lee Sypert wins. She wore Gordon's form-fitting grey sweater at the surveying class and would have been supremely happy if Gordon hadn't paid so much attention to Elizabeth. April 24-Special surprize assembly. Mr. Adamson calls for Editors and Managers, of the Oak and Acorn. He presents them each with a beautiful gold pin- specially designed to represent the school and a guard letter to represent their work. Ahem! We knew it. Miss Griffin and Miss Eisenlohr were so crazy about their pet proteges this year that they were bound to frame up something. April 25fKathleen Barnes comes to school without her ear ring. Says 1t's making her face one-sided! So that's what's the matter. April 26-Boys' team won the city debate. Didn't we tell you to watch out for President Marsh! The only thing he can't out talk around here is our Editor. He says whenever he looks at her his tongue gets twisted. We think she is good looking too! April 27-Seniors meet. They decide to buy some statues for O. C. We suggested the Restless Age and Floradora-even offering to furnish the models but they decided in favor of Minerva and Diana! April 28-Another Saturday-The Senior Play! Mary Claire Hirted as if she were used to it and Ward surely did enjoy the devotion of his niece Marcia. It was a good play but what else can you expect of the June class of '23? April 3Q-Scholarship assembly. We certainly have some brains out here in O. C. May 1-Bridge parties have broken out among the faculty.. Miss Maloitl started it-Do you suppose the poor things really enjoy that game? Why don't they take up Mah Jong? May 2-Oak Staff has a May breakfast in the woods and are all late to school in consequence. Miss G- squared them even if it did almost break her pull with the office! May 3-Last picture show of the season. Mr. Hamilton tried to get one of Valentino's films so he could make a real cleaning but was too late so he compromised on Mae Murray. May 4-The publications' Committees have a banquet at the Jefferson. Good music-good food-good time. May -7-Last Acorn out-some magazine, 172 pages. There his no use talking we have a mighty fine school magazine. May 8fStudent- Councilors advise the Seniors to burn a little midnight oil for the end is now is sight. May 9-Miss Grifhn hears that O. P. has quit work in Algebra and that she has spoiled him and Dudie very very badly. Poor soul! and she meant so well too! May 10-The gymnasium May festival was some show. Hitchcock's Tivoli Chorus -has nothing on some of Miss Locke's high steppers! May 11-Senior Day! Early in the year one of our prominent young ladies said that for Senior Day this year's class would substitute Thug Day. They nearly did it tool However, we think their proud hearts were thouched when the little Sophomore girls presented the owers. May-l47Faculty are making up for past omissions by assigning triple work now. Note Books and Trig problems are selling at a premium. May 15-Kidd Springs opens-A lot of our students court pneumonia by taking such an early plunge. May 16-Assembly-Class presents the beautiful statues-We all think Minerva resembles Mrs. Price! May 17-Prepare for the worst! The Senior invita- tions are here and they are really very handsome even if they didn't adopt the design and color scheme we suggested.

May 28-Under classmen take exams. Seniors parade the hall and make general nuisances of themselves. May 29-Commencement rehearsals keep the seniors from under foot and the rest of us work. May 30-More exams! Oh for a St. Patrick to do with exams in O. C. what the other one did for snakes in Ireland! May 3lfAll-OverhMost of us passed-some of us Hunked. 'Commencement Was pretty this year. Good looking girls and boys. We are all sorry to lose them June 1- ................................ Farewell. Page One Hundred Twenty-Eight

Uv' I FRANKNESS On April tenth the Oak Staff heaved a sigh of relief-The Oak was done except for the proof reading. Time would now hang heavily on the hands of the hard-working UD staff. They were used to a little excitement and now all was serene. Suddenly one worthy Wight suggested that it might relieve the prevail- ing calm if we could express our real opinion of each other. The idea spread. The staff no longer speaks as its members pass through our thumb-marked cor- ridors. We append a few of the more prominent remarks: O. P. Wolcott, Business Manager, says: Singleton? The big bluffer only brought in one quarter page of ad- vertising ! " Elizabeth? Good looking but too fond of bossing and also of Gordon." Yarrell? Hunk of Cheese. I had to help rewrite his R. O. T. C. Stufff' "lVlcCann? Well, he can draw if you can stand his silly talk while heis at it. I can't." uAdviser? Help! She has a perverted sense of humor and plays prac- tical jokes-she's bossy and has an awful temper-You ought to see her throw things! There may be worse ones-but-I" Elizabeth Blaylock, Editor, says: "Singleton? He's nice looking." "Wolcott? Too much like Bubba! He's bossy and too fond of Jeanne. Of course, he did help me somelw "Yarrell? I had a date with him once-that was enoughli' "Adviser?-Too bossyl She double crossed me once but I kinda, like her anwayf' Erma Griffin, Adviser, says: 4'Singleton? I never did want him on the staff-he couldn,t learn Caesar!" "Wolcott? The only dumb bell I ever liked-I can't account for the fact that I havenlt killed him off! I have to diagram my jokes and then explain the diagram. He's all right tho, and I,d pick him again if we were to start overf, "Elizabeth? She's fine when she isn't disciplining O. P. or mooning over Gordon. Good worker but she gets mad sometimes at the same time I doin "Yarrell? I suppose they call him uKitty" because one can't mention him without being cattyf' '4lVlcCann?-Least said-soonest mended. He can promise more and do 'less than any one else in O. Cf' The Staff says: '4Wolcott? What did he ever do anyway, except cut class and pose in the halls a little? No one ever saw him workin "Elizabeth? Pretty soft to be an editor. She just passed the buck and made us all work while she took in the laurelsf' "Adviser? Some bossy old maid! ,lust because she likes to work she needn't think we all have the same disease. She never can under- stand our social necessities must interfere with work occasionallyf' All of us say: 'LWanted: A League of Nations, A Hague Conference, or an Inter- national Court, to arbitrate our differences and bring back the dove of peace.
