Teachers, pupils, etc., lend me your ears Before this primer drives you to tears, Donlt get angry and rant and shout, just because you are rather noticeably pointed out. Smile and bear it for you know that no harm is meant. So grin and read on, and if youlre threatening-relent. O. C. II. S. May, 1925. A. S. Esouum. PART ONE Fdfllffy' rl fphabet Edi1ar's Nole: Mr. Adamson is not placed among the ladies because of any feminine tendencies on his part, but on account of his being the leader, the If-ue leader, 'of Oak Cliff High School and deserving first place. UA" stands for Adamson, Aduddell, and Alex- ander. In writing of them we do not want to 'smart' or slander. Pointing one's finger is very bad, Saying 'git' is worse, But memorizing the Senior play Makes us want to call a hearse. "B" is for Baker, three of them we've met. Two Browns, a Bridges, and a Bramlette, A Brandenburg, a Bell and that is all. If you havenlt seen the "Bl"s, youive seen nothing at all. "C" stands for Cannon, Clement, and Cooper, Berta. Sadie teaches 'em music, Clement shows 'em how to draw, Cooper instructs them not to mar or hurta Dear old Latin studying it until it's raw. "D" stands for Durrett and Sarah Dinsmore, too. One teaches bygone deeds, the other the diff between "to" and 'ttoof' Virginia is a pretty name, We'll admit, Mrs. Durrett, But when you come to Texas, You surely ought to store it. "E" stands for Eisenlohr, and Betty Ewing as well, Betty makes them pound the typewriter to beat the dickens. We know something that Henrietta wants very, very bad: Some journalism students that do not require "Look over this, my ladlu HF" is for Finley, together with Falls and Foster. Myrtle teaches Math., as you can see by gazing on the roster. Laura shows the females how to cook and sew, But Louise gets the cake-she "kids" "Redn- I'll say so, bo! "GU stands for Graves, Griffin, and Guinn. Gosh, Fannie seems a monster, when late you come in. Page One Hundred Forty

NAUGHTY! He had fallen for her. They were in classes together but she didn't speak to him. By des- perate means he finally met her. They were alone. His dream had come true. "How,s your Math?

The guy who wrote histories will his birth- day yet rue. "M" is for Marberry and Eula McCorkle, A Spanisher and a mathematician right here in our school. If they only knew what we thought about those subjects They would quit them and teach some other subjects. PART Last but not least say we of the men, Teachers par excellence and pals of the pore. When you're an alumnus, youlll think of them THEN, And wonder why you didn't appreciate them more. Edilarlv Note: Due to the procrastinating and omit qualities of proprietor, laziness of editor, indifference of publishers, we'll have to the chef, janitors, and delivery men.
