Since every one likes to be admired and only a few achieve such greatness,
the Oak management tried to analyze for on-coming generations exactly what
qualities went to make up popularity. After we had wasted many weary hours of
anxious thought we decided that we would conduct a little laboratory experiment
in Oak Cliff Hi and to that end we distributed among the entire student body
preliminary ballots and asked each student to nominate his favorite boy and his
favorite girl. From these sixteen hundred votes the eight leading candidates-
four boys and four girls-were chosen. The qualities of these candidates were
discouraging to the more common people since they ran the gamut from beauty
to wisdom. After the primary election, voting privileges were restricted to sub-
scribers to the Oak and to those gaining advertising material for it.
After all votes were counted, Miss Sadie Jackson, member of the January
graduating class, was found to have the greatest number of votes among -the
feminine contestants. Since Miss Jackson had more than her share of good looks
and also a great deal of that intangible asset known as charm, we were not sur-
prised at her election as Oak Cliffis most popular girl.
Miss Artie Lee Sypert, a member of the June class, received the second highest
number of votes and was accordingly given the second place and, together with
Miss Jackson was presented at the HCadet Hopn as winner of this exciting contest.
Artie Lee,s sweetness, sympathy, and beauty had so endeared her to all that the
committee on this scientific question of popularity agreed with the popular
Pat Weekley, beloved athlete and real sport, member of the January class,
received the highest number of votes among the masculine candidates. To any one
familiar with Oak Cliff Spirit this result could not be surprising because Pat
has been the idol of all Oak Cliff athletic fans-and that means every one in O. C.
between the ages of eight and eighty-for some three years. Whatever can be
required for popularity Pat has it in abundance.
The genial O. P. Wolcott, manager of the Oak, received the second highest
number of votes among the boys and so to him is awarded the second place in
Oak Cliff's heart. Mr. Wolcott is a handsome youth, possessing in marked degree
a versatility of talent in varied lines. He was president of the Senior class, presi-
dent of the Hi-Y, Captain of the Boy's Rifle Team and he filled all these positions
with both ease and efficiency. His pleasant personality and his marked capabili-
ties made it impossible for him to be overlooked in any popularity contest in Oak
In conclusion, the committee wishes to state that there seems to be no accepted
formula for popularity. These four specimens we had chosen for us in O. C. Hi.
all seem to have different qualifications to recommend them-the only one we
find to be common to them all is loyalty to the Blue and White. They all gave
the best they had to Oak Cliff, whereupon Oak Cliff royally accepted their gifts
and proclaimed them to be typical specimens of her heart's desires. Just look
them over on the next four pages and let us have your verdict-please.
You say 6'They are sure winners."
We say 6'Of courseli'

OUR OW N TROPHY
The latest addition to Oak Cliffas trophy case is the cup given
by the A. Zeese Engraving Company for the best annual published
in Texas last year. This cup was awarded under the auspices of
the High School Press Association at Belton, Texas, April the
thirteenth. As this was the first meeting of this association, Oak
Cliff feels doubly honored by having won the cup, since the book
was planned without any thought of winning a prize. It was also
a late entry, having had a special invitation. Oak Cliff has to hold
this trophy for three successive years to keep it. We are confident
that the cup will remain in Oak Cliff for two years anyway. The
representatives from Oak Cliff to the Conference were, Miss Griffin,
Director, Miss Elizabeth Blaylock, Editor-in-Chief and Mr. O. P.
Wolcott, Business Manager of the nineteen twenty-three Oak.
