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.

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?

Miss Locke's high steppers!
May 11-Senior Day! Early in the year one of our

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
Erma Griffin, Adviser, says:
4'Singleton? I never did want him on the staff-he couldn,t learn
"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. Address: Oak Staff, Oak Cliff High School,
