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.
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
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!

Membership: Limited to Charter Members-Qualified by their ordinary
Conduct: Each member retires to solitude and soliloquizes.
fNote: The following soliloquies were caught by wireless. The reporter of
them prefers to remain anonymousj.
"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!"
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

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,
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

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."
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?"
