W. H. ADAMSON
According to time-honored tradition the
spirit of a school plays a large part in the
winning of contests. Since this spirit IS most
frequently made evident by yells, each school
selects a yell leader. O. C. this year selected
Carl Matthews to lead. The Oak Staff after
careful observation came to the conclusion
that the party engendering the greatest en-
thusiasm and producing the greatest volume
of sound, to show that enthusiasm was W. H.
Adamson. He doesn't know that we are here-
by electing him cheer leader-but judging by
results he deserves the position. So, alto-
gether, Oak Cliff, lets give fifteen for W. H.
Adamson, the best cheer leader in Dallas!
When Oak Cliff chose Carl to lead her
spirit demonstrations, she showed unusual
judgment, for Carl has certainly demonstrated
unusual ability in this line. At every game,
at every assembly, Carl has been present with
his clever antics and weird gyrations to en-
courage the student body to show its loyalty
to Oak Cliff, whether the occasion be debate,
football or basket ball.
He led the snake dance celebrations with
an ease and agility that would have caused
envy in the heart of a classical dancer, he
managed several affairs, honoring the various
members of the Oak Cliff teams, and in the
opinion of all of us has proven to be a very
efficient and effective leader.

PEP SQUAD A
For many years an old-fashioned notion prevailed that women could not understand or
appreciate sports but O. C. has done a great deal to demolish such a prehistoric notion, for our
"pep" squad composed of some two hundred girls under the direction of Miss Lora Locke
added color and life to the football games. When they formed the O. C. in the center of
the field at Gardiner Park the grand stand gave them such an ovation that the more staid
Dallasites thought an earthquake was upon them! -
May the 'fpepi' squad grow and flourish to add to O. C.'s reputation as a school which
does things right!

We put in this picture just to show you that Allen
is a real guy! As a coach he is all there-vim, vigor,
vitality, pep-punchhwhatever you call it-or all of
them-are present in his dealings with our blue and
white athletes. We tried to say something mean about
all the football men and really ought not to pass up the
coach with these few kind remarks but we like Allen
and his good-looking wife too well to risk their friend-
When in the hurry and rush of winning a few more
loving cups, state championships and such-like Mr. Allen
received a summons to investigate the village of Chicago
upon l.ake Michigan, he looked about for a deputy and
his gaze fell upon Mr. Campbell who was a forthwith
duly selected to guide our destinies in the track events
of the season. Mr. Campbell has been generous with
both his time and his energy and has developed a team
which is composed almost entirely of new material. ln
his first mect the team made a very creditable showing
and may certainly be counted upon to uphold Oak Cliffs
honor in future events.
P. M. KENLEY
Mr. Kenley is our most efficient business manager
of Athletic events. He pushes the sale of tickets, attends
to the advertising of games, buys the tickets, both meal
and rail, for the boys and is general guardian of our
financial situation. Wflien you consider the hundreds of
dollars involved in school athletics each year, you will
not be surprised to learn that Mr. Kenley sometimes
wears a worried look but under his able management the
O. C. athletic fund has grown and prospered-for which
fact all 0. C. students return thanks to P. M. Kenley,
Manager of Athletics.
