'T TOM MAYES Tom showed up line in the track meet. He won first place in the mile run, second place in the high jump, and third place in the 880-yard run. Tom is a great sportsman as well as a great runner. Oak Cliff is proud to have Tom among her number of athletic stars. JAMES ROBINSON James, alias 'Tightin' Joe Hooker," is a shining example of that old fighting spirit of Oak Cliff High School. He made the other teams stretch in the field events and tied with En- hanks of Oak Clit? for first place in the pole vault. Much is expected of 'KFightin' Joe" this year, and judging from his work so far, he will not disap- point us. Do your stuff, "Ioe." i Q . 1 ' 1 , .IA , .V :gg ' ' y Eff , ,.., ,. . , ., Q 'ff Page One Hundred Thirty-I-wo CHARLIE POTTS Charlie was a little but loud man in Oak Cliii athletics. Be- sides making the football team he was a very valuable man on the track team winning second place in the 440 dash, second in the 220 dash and holding down a place on the one mile relay team from Oak CliFE that walked off with first place. MR. CAMPBELL Coach IIOMER BALCOM When "Lummox" put the shot 42 feet and 5 inches, he es- tablished a city record and lit- erally hurled himself to fame. In the athletics of Oak Cliff High, he is quite indispensable since he was a member of the football team as well as the track team. He will go down in Oak Cliff's Hall of Heroes as a good athlete and a clean sport. GEORGE MCLEAN When the track meet was over, everybody in Oak Cliff realized that we had a George McLean in school. In the 880 he came out first and he was also on the winning relay team. He was second in the mile run. The track team will miss George and his winged feet in the 1925 season.

Kms Baseball Before the baseball season start- ed in 1924, the "Our Charley" candy company offered a complete baseball outfit to the high school saving the largest number of "Our Charley" wrappers. The outfit consisted of twelve complete uni- forms with shoes, bats, gloves, and catcher's equipment The twelve men who were presented with the new uniforms were: Schroeder, Joe King, Lynch, Rhoads, Baxter, Harvey, Kirby, Watt, Cheeves, Wilson, Sanguinet, and Sanford. Leopmfdr Ufin O penal' LYNCH On Wednesday, April 9th, the Leopards dusted off their spikes, brought out their favorite war clubs, and journeyed to Rockwall to open the baseball SCHSOII. With five of the Hrst nine having but one day's practice after their return from the National Basketball Tournament, the Leopards were not ex- pected to make a good showing, but the natural ability of the players and the usual Oak Cliff spirit brought them through to an easy 8-2 victory. Bob Sanguinefs hitting featured, getting a homer, triple and double, while Wilson was not far behind in this respect. Wilson held the opposition to few scattered hits and received fairly good support. Dave Cheeves in left held made a sensational catch of a Hy ball hit barely over the infield in the sixth inning. Leopards Beal ':B7'j'6Z7Z 2-1 In a close and interesting game the Blue and White Leopards opened the city series by beating Bryan 2-I. Both pitchers showed some classy twirling, but Harvey, the Leopard twirler, pitched a better brand of ball than his OPPOHCIII. Bryan started off by scoring in the opening round, but the Leopards came back and knotted the count in the second, when Cheeves reached second on an overthrow and Baxter singled, scoring Cheeves. The Leopards scored their other run when Rhoads lined out a three bagger with King on first base in the fourth frame. Batteries: Oak Cliff: Harvey and Sanguinetg Bryan: Blassingame and Blassingame.
