Oak Cliff has always appreciated the true Worth of her Public Speak-
ing Department, and has realized from the programs staged before the
school each term, that it is becoming better with each succeeding class.
And this year, under the leadership of Miss Baker, not only has the class
excelled itself in its regular routine work, but also has obtained recogni-
tion beyond the bounds of the school. In addition to performing the
classroom assignments, the public speakers gave, at the request of the lip-
Worth League of the Oak Cliff Nlethodist Church, a public program with
"Youth and the Bible" as a general topic, and then just to show their
versatility, planned a humorous program for the Professional Womenls
Club which was so well received that the very next morning it was pre-
sented before the school assembly.

'l'he French classes formed a cluh which held many interesting meetings which culmin-

The Spanish is the largest of our language departments. The practical as well as the
literary side of this language is emphasized. liach year the advanced classes hold a han-
quet at some of the local Mexican restaurants uhere a typical menu of Spanish dishes is
served and where a full program of toasts and amusements is rendered in Spanish.
The Latin classes, in spite of the fact that they are studying a "dead" language, de-
velop a great deal of enthusiasm for their subject. In the spring of each year the Latin
Departments of all the high schools in this district hold a Latin Tournament. Each school
sends two representatives of each class to stand a written competitive examination to de-
termine the standing of the various schools. Oak Cliff expects to maintain her leadership
in this, as uell as all other departments.

One of the most fascinating departments of our school life meets
in the studio at the Northeast corner of our top Hoor. Here those stu-
dents interested in Pictorial Art assemble for a double period of Work.
Nearly all the mediums known to art are exercised by the various stu-
dentsswater color, oil, pastel, clay, and metal. ln the poster work the
classes are especially proficient, and the exquisitely attractive postures add
beauty and color to our halls.
Many of the students are particularly interested in cartooning, and
our local publications use most of this class of work produced. ln the
metal work many of the students add appreciably to their income by the
sale of specially designed rings, belt buckles, and book ends.
ln the spring of each year this department holds a public exhibition
of the results accomplished in all lines of its work, and the artistic public
is always a welcome and enthusiastic visitor.
