U.: I THE MEGOISTSW Motto: "I:Myself.', Purpose: 'LSelf-Adulationf' Membership: Limited to Charter Members-Qualified by their ordinary conversation. Meetings: Everyday. Conduct: Each member retires to solitude and soliloquizes. fNote: The following soliloquies were caught by wireless. The reporter of them prefers to remain anonymousj. WEBB SOWDEN "It surely does make me peevish the way some of the folks up at school call me con- ceited-I'm not! If I could locate anyone else that was better looking or smarter than myself l'd admire them greatly, but so far, I haven't been able to find a single one of that sort. The way those girls hang around me is disgust- ing. I have done everything but hit them- I've been rude--I've broken dates-I've taken them to places and flirted with other girls out- rageously-even waitresses-but they still cling. Of course they are a good sort but still not in my class. So far I have found no one else who is!" GORDON IHARSH A'I'm good-Illl admit that. My sea-gray eyes so deeply overshadowed by intense black eye-brows certainly do mow down the ladies. ll never had a real idea in my life, but I have so skillfully masked this condition by unceas- ing use of words-wordsawords, that some people think Iim smart. I pretend to think so too, but really at this midnight hour 4'Never- more" is my real estimate of my intelligence? I canlt understand why I can't get two dates with the same girl. I always improve them the first time. I correct their grammar and their pronunciation4I talk about myself-I wonder 1vliy?', T. E. HARTSFIELIJ HI know that if I had not been so young during the past world war, I could have been master of the situation. Marshal Foch may have been a great military tactician but in my military exams I have displayed as much knowledge as Ferdie himself. Captain Day said so. I have never been given a chance to use all my knowledge either in school or on the parade ground but there will come a day when it will be given vent to and I will have my rightful place in military historyf, HAROLD KANTZ HI am the gentleman crook. My line is love and automobile accessories. I take the ladiesvone or two or three at a time but I have a waiting list for my customers in the foresaid accessories. My specialties are Cadillac horns and radiator decorations. For reference I can suggest Ruth R. Eliza- beth D. and Dorothy W. in the love line but my mechanical line extends from Oak Cliff's western boundary to Highland Park's northern boulevardsf' O. P. WOLCOTT 4'Self analysis is my besetting sin. I never could resist temptation. I shall now analyze myself. Physically-Ilm perfect-I like my eyes, with their attractive lashes and shining surface-my hair, especially when well per' furned-the shape of my nether limbs in their shiny putts certainly makes a hit with me. I've got good sense-even if I don't study. I know enough already-except in Chemistry. If we only had a woman teacher in that I could get by there, too. My nice manners suit ladies. I do hate to see cheap jewelry on my lady friends. Personally I'm like Ivory soap-l1ly white and 99727 pure-I dance but don't like to-I never drink-I never smoke -I never spoon-I never swore but once and that was at the printer--'fthere is where I lost lk of Ifkl I never shot craps but once- and that was at Temple. I won-but that's where I lost my other Vgfk. Out Side of those two lanses, I am a lily of the field! l like myself." ELIZABETH BLAYLOCK HI want to be a wild woman-I'm going to bob my hair-Yes-I am tool I know its beautiful and curly and all that but just the same I can't capture the man I want while I am so gentle-looking. If my kinky locks could just float loose in the breeze-I believe I'd be more popular-Now don't tell me I have handsome eyes--that's not enough any more-I've used them until the muscles fare sore and O. P. still falls for Jeanne-She has bobbed hair-Iim going to bob mine, too. If he don't fall then, I'll blondine it-I am de- termined to trap him. Of course, I do not love him-I merely hate to let anyone escape +Give me those scissors-O-my hair-my beautiful hairgllyhat have I done?" UI In I Page One Hundred Thlrtylf' ve

Fl 'U NOTICE TO SUBSCRIBERS This is not a humorous articleg .it has no business in this division of this bookg it is serious stuff. The wherefore of its whichness is that the "Little Pettie" that it's about was so efficient in getting her own way fin helping usj that she wouldnat let us put this en- comium, panegyric, monody or eulogy on a page of honor-here it is in spite of her- We desire to give space here in paying tribute to one who has given us unstintingly of her time and judg- ment in the issuance of this annual-Miss Erma A. Griffin. One who has not only been loyal and faithfulg but unselfish to the Faculty, and to the student body and to the best interests of the school in every respect. Without her valuable assistance the Oak would have been stinted, the branches blighted and not to change the ufiggern of speech too suddenly-failure would have crowned our efforts. Endowed with a natural gift of humor, she is most generous in sharing this gift with those with whom she comes in contact-always willing to help unto the UIICIIIIOSI. In summing up her activities in school life we feel that the expression used so frequently and so expressively by the student body will express what we wish to say, were we putting it in a,nut shell-i.e. "She seen her duty and done noble." May her shadow never grow less! ELIZABETH BLAYLOCK, Editor O. P. WOLCOTT, Business Manager She won't like this-we understand she's on a diet. mf 1 Page One Hundred Thirty-Six
