MISS ELIZABETH W. BAKER
Miss Baker has been one of the most notable workers towards bringing about a revival
of interest in spoken English. It is due to her efforts that the time of the English Classes
has been more equally apportioned between the spoken and the written word. She has
established classes in public speaking in O. C. Hi. which have trained the students to speak
extemporaneously with more ease and intelligence on public questions than the average grown
person exhibits on similar occasions. She has developed two splendid debating teams both
of which have won several victories for O. C.-the boys securing the city championship.
The Oak Cliff Debating Stock took a decided leap upward when Marsh first showed us
his oratorical ability. He has a pleasing delivery and a forceful personality, that, combined
with a logical mind and an impressive vocabulary were strong factors in winning for 0. C.
the debating championship of the city of Dallas. Gordon has done more than his share of
hard work for the blue and white this year and we are confidently looking forward to further
victories from him at Denton in the district debate and at Austin in the state debate.
Any one who still clings to the ancient belief that women are illogical can never have heard
Pinkie debate. She has a pleasant voice and a clear direct line of thought that will carry
her far in any line of public speaking she may care to undertake. In all O. C. Debates in
which the girls participated Pinkie has received much commendation and she has added to
the fame and glory of the Blue and White in all possible ways.
WILL C. GRANT
Will C. Grant has been a steady and hard-working member of the O. C. boys' debating
team which won the Dallas championship and which is expected to win other victories before
the close of the season. Grant has a wonderful command of language and a nice easy manner
that wins him the admiration of his audience.
While still a member of an under-class Frances Spears has shown marked ability in her
chosen line. She has been a memberfpf the girls debating team for two years and has done
a great deal towards furthering interest in this lille of work. She says that she intends to
be a lawyer and all of us who have heard her debate agree that she should do well in this
