EVER before in Oak Cliff, throughout the history of debate, have the places on the two teams been so closely contested. It took two weeks to decide on the state team, and after the elimination had been completed, there remained Alex Daspit and Henry Robinson for the boys, and Helen Roberts and Alice Daspit for the girls. These teams were amply repaid for their efforts by trips to Corsicana, Eastland, Abilene, and Austin, and have succeded in bringing to Oak Cliff more than her share of the victories. This year Oak Cliff has produced two fast thinking, evenly balanced teams, dis- tinguished chiefly by their ability to speak with ease and force in rebuttal, and by their team-work which is as indispensable in debating as in athletics. Henry Robinson possesses a beautifully easy conversational delivery that is seldom equaled in a high school speaker. ln addition to this is his ability to make each in- dividual in the audience feel as if he is speaking to him and him alone, and to convey his thought in an astonishingly few number of words which gives to it the added virtues of clearness and compactness. Alex Daspit is one of the bright lights of Oak Cliff debate history. His ability to handle the topic at hand, together with his exact command of language and forceful delivery has seldom been surpassed by his predecessors. Alex has participated in every debate of the season and has added much to the enjoyableness of each. He has done his share Well in the profitable debate season of which Oak Cliff is so proud. Helen Roberts was blessed, to begin with, with a naturally logical mind and a forceful, compelling voice. To these she has added, by dint of practice, an excep- tionally good vocabulary and ability to literally demolish opposing arguments, to con- vert enemy points into argumnts for her side, and to produce arguments of her own that successfully defy refutation. ln former times at the appearance of a prospective feminine debate star, we have heralded her as a Usecond Pinkie Jayf, but in the here- after it will be, "almost as good as Helen Robertsf, Alice Daspit is a worthy colleague for Helen. Where Helen is compelling, she is persuasive, where Helen appeals to cold logic, she brings in a touch of humor that puts her audience in a receptive mood, and as a usual thing she is so intent upon the debate that an intense desire to have the thing out during an opponent's rebuttal seizes her, and restraint seems merely to add to the effectiveness of her rebuttal. Now, although these four composed the teams for the greater portion of the season, credit should certainly be extended to Harmon Watkins, alternate for the boys who amply demonstrated his ability at Abilene, and Josephine Jay, girlls alternate, who upon two days' notice mustered the sick Alice Daspit's speech, in time to deliver it in the return debate with Abilene and to win the decision. And back of it all, the unseen power, is Miss Baker. Ever inspiring, untiring, never despondant, always intensely appreciative of effort, she is indeed an ideal leader, coach, and companion.
