lloward Baxter is a synonym for ac-
tion. When he enters a game, the speed
picks up, and the going gets rough for
the opposition. He plays all over the
floor, is in every play and drops the ball
Playing at guard, john Gibbs is Z1 very
reliable and consistent player. Ile plays
steadily and is aggressixe to the extent
that a chance to intercept the ball or mess
up a play of the opposing team rarely es-
capes him. Taking him all in all John
is a player that would be hard to duplicate.
Oak Cliff is a democratic community
but she sure loves her l'kings"-last, but
not least of whom is Charlie-an accurate,
fast, little basketeer who has worked hard
and faithfully for the Blue and White.
On more than one occasion his dependable
goal shooting has saved the day and the
big end of the score for Oak Cliff.

With the stamina to play a fast game,
the speed to be aggressive, and an accurate
eye for the basket, Hopper plays a won!
derful game of basket ball. In addition
he has the experience and head necessary
and consequently is the leader of our team
and a star among stars.
It would be hard to find a man that
played harder, fought harder, or played
a better game than Tom Mayes. He is
fast on the floor and throws himself into
the game with all abandon. Tom can
also ring baskets with the best and is a
mainstay of our team.
Dubby plays a sure and cautious game
of basket ball. He never plays slap dash,
hit or miss but waits for his chance and
takes full advantage of it. As this type
he is always dependable in every play and
ranks as one of our best players.
A new comer to our school, Newman,
has proved himself to be Il true Cliff-
dweller. He plays a fast, easy game and
is always on hand when needed. He
plays seemingly without effort. His
smoothness of action and ability to be at
the right spot at the right time ready to
receive or intercept the ball make him
very valuable to our team.
