THE SEASON-Continued Oak Cliff vs. North Dallas Some people said we had a one-man team. This game showed we had at least a two-man team. Playing in the rain, in a sea of mud, Lynch was stopped dead. Did we lose? No, Hopper displayed his wares and nothing could stop him. Time and again he hit the line, and when it was all over, the score stood Oak Cliff 6, North Dallas O. Oak Cliff vs. Sherman The game of games, a game to go down in history. It is a rare sight to see a team snatch victory from certain defeat and it was a victory for Oak Cliff although the score was a tie. ln the first half, Oak Cliff was badly out-played. Sherman, seeming to gain at will and led by Hume, ran up 26 points to Oak Cliff's O before the whistle blew for the half. In the second half, that remarkable Oak Cliff spirit accomplished the impossible. The team came on the field with the words of Coach Allen and Mr. Adamson ringing in thir ears, there was new life in the student body on the side lines, Oak Cliff was started. Two passes Lynch to Rhoads and Lynch to Mayes netted the first score, and Lynch kicked goal. Lynch, Hopper, and Clements got in more fine work for the blue and white, and at the end of the third quarter the score stood, Sherman 26, Oak Cliff 20. The remaining quarter was played in the semi-darkness and was a battle royal. Oak Cliff made another touchdown, failing to kick goal, and the game ended 26 to 26. Lynch and Hopper for Oak Cliff and Hume for Sherman were the outstanding players. Oak CliPf vs. Forest After six long years of patienttfj waiting Forest achieved their highest ambition by beating Oak Cliff. Oak Cliff had hard luck on their schedule and had to play three games in ten days. Lynch ran the team with his usual style and craft, and Hopper played a good game, but the pace told on the whole team. The usual punch and vigor was not there, the men were tired and could not do their best. Glory to you, Forest, but beware of '26, The score-Forest 6, Oak Cliff O. Oak Cliff vs. Sherman Playing Sherman for the second time for the District honors, Oak Cliff was too much for them. Lynch, Hopper, and Lumpkin fought as they had never fought before. Lynch was all over the field, and Hopper plowed through their line. Lumpkin dealt misery with his stiff arm and saved the game in the last quarter by inter- cepting a pass and running for a touchdown. Clements, the silent man of the back field, played a fine game, running 20 yards for the first touchdown for Oak Cliff. Page One Hundred Twenty three

The Season On the record of these games we present to you the victorious Leopards of OAK CLIFF HIGH SCHOOL Football Cfmmpiom of the Stale of Texas Oak Cliff vs. Stephenville The Oak Cliff Leopards opened the season by defeating Stephenville 34-O. Lumpkin, Oak Cliff tackle, played a fine defensive game while Lynch starred on the offensive. In the first quarter Lynch made a touchdown, Hopper missed the goal. Two scores were made in the second quarter, Lynch kicked both goals. Nothing was scored in the third quarter, but two more touchdowns were scored in the fourth. The high spot in the game was the 55-yard run, in returning a punt made by Lynch. Oak Cliff vs. Plano The final score in the game with Plano, the second of the season, was I5-7 in Oak Cliffls favor. Rhoads made the first score possible by intercepting a pass on the 45-yard line. The ball was also carried down the field to within 2 feet of the goal line by Hopper, and Lynch made another score. Although the team did not play as well as usual in this game, the old Oak Cliff spirit made them fight hard. Oak Cliff vs. Ardmore Another team was defeated when Oak Cliff had a 40-O score at the end of the Ardmore game. The Leopards were superior in every way to the Ardmore team, but the Indians fought to the end. Lynch made many remark- able gains, but the longest was his eighty-yard run for a touchdown. Rhoads, fullback, Carver, left tackle, and Baxter, right end, deserve much credit in winning this game. Every man played well. Oak Cliff vs. Bryan The city series opened with the Bryan-Oak Cliff game. This was the most exciting game of the entire series. In the second series of play, Lynch made a run of 65 yards for the only score of the game. He kicked the goal also. The entire Oak Cliff team played better than any other time this year. Oak Cliff did not attempt to plunge the line so much, but gained most of their ground by open playing. Both sides played well but the Leopards did better, and so the final score was 7-2 in favor of Oak Cliff. Page One Hundred Twenty-two

THE SEASON-Cofztifmefl Oak Cliff vs. Vernon Oak Cliff added another name to their long list by defeating Vernon 39-O. Lynch made many long runs, and Hopper tore through their line consistently. Lumpkin Was used in the back field for the first time and showed up fine. Lumpkin uses the "tank" method and is hard to stop. Balcom, Dunn, and Rhoads starred on the line. The Vernon team was too light to cope with Oak Cliff, but they are good fighters, and We Wish them luck. Cooper, Walker, and Gilhausen starred for Vernon. Oak Cliff vs. Cisco ln a Whirlwind of Blue and White the Cisco Loboes Went down to defeat. Coming to Dallas with a line said to be the strongest in the state, it Was sup- posed that Oak Cliff would resort to the aerial route. Coming as a surprise, Lumpkin and Hopper were thrust through the tackles of Ciscols line and reeled off yard after yard. Coach Allen's strategy was apparent here. Oak Cliff beat Cisco at their own game, their line was beaten and thrown back, and Oak Cliff marched down the Held. The score-Oak Cliff 52, Cisco 7. Oak Cliff vs. Waco With the ground frozen solid by an icy north Wind, Oak Cliff and Waco went on the field to battle for the State Championship. W. C. Lynch, the wonder man of Oak Cliff, did all sorts of tricks on the frozen field, sometimes making five or six yards by simply sliding on his back on the frozen ground. Lumpkin, Hopper, Clements, and Rhoads were there big. Lumpkin ex- celled even himself in the use of his notorious stiff arm. Hopper went through the line for many gains, and Clements and Rhoads snatched passes from all directions. Balcom, Hood, and Allen played a fine game on the line. The score-31-O.
