Iust one of the 30 Club's meetings.
Last term in The Times Office a unique club was conceived and organized by the hard-working,
deadline-beating reporters on The Times. I
The club was promptly named the H30 Society" in honor of the traditional thirty mark which means
"end of copy." Miss Lena Mae Elliott, sponsor of The Times, agreed to sponsor the Society, and regular
Immediately after having been organized, the club was divided into two teams. One was named
the "Dummies"-meaning the make-up of a paper, and the other was called the "Dopes"-meaning
advance information. Maxine Gilliam was chosen captain of the Dopes, while Doris Rae Beard led the
Dummies. The purpose of the club was to get bigger and better ads for the Times.

The objectives of the Speech Department are to enable the student to discharge his civic duties in life
with efficiency, economy, and comfort, to encourage leadershipg and to foster an appreciation of and a
taste for all the platform arts. ln Speech l and ll the student is expected to acquire foundational techniques
in diction, voice, interpretation, bodily control, command of language, and rudiments of parliamentary pro-
cedure. The beginners' courses also serve as a testing period during which talents in radio, debate, dra-
matics and extempore speech are discovered. Each of the six courses in Speech offers college credit and a
student may also major in speech.
Motivating excellence in platform speaking is the Texas lnterscholastic League Contest in which B. H. S.
has always participated. Declamation and extempore speaking are directed by Mrs. B. L. D. Roselle. Last
year Logan Smiley won the city championship in declamation, while Betty Lou lohn and Wilton Biegert
excelled in extempore. Wilton finally
placed fourth in the state contest at
Austin. Doris Zirkel came out as city
champion in the Pan-American Oration
