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,
