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 meetings began. 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. Each team adopted its own slogan and theme song-using them as battle cries. A contest then began between the two teams, with a party given by the losing side as a reward to the winners. By the margin of only a few inches the Dummies finally emerged victors. At the end of the term. the club was disbanded as far as the journalism work went, but it has met a few times since then. -Betty Grisham. 748 "so" Swat' Pa, e 112

Salam- cf aaalau . ,,, ,m 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 Contest. This year, Bette Ruth Williams and Logan Smiley were winners in the Pan- American Oration Contest, each receiv- ing awards of five dollars. Represent- ing the school in declamation were Elmo Ferguson, W h o recited "Our Shield of Freedom" by H. H. Schlacht, and Virginia Fullerton, Whose selection was "What ls America?" by Ben Hecht and Charles MacArthur. Virginia won the City Championship, while Elmo placed second. Extempore representatives for this year were Bette Ruth Williams and Dallas Thacker, who placed second in the city. lnnovations introduced into Speech I and ll this year were the San lac Swing on the eve of the spring holiday and the presentation by Mrs. Roselle of intra-mural trophies of silver B's for the best declaimers in Speech l and the best interpreters of dramatic reading in Speech ll. These new features bid fair to become traditions and have al- ready stimulated tremendous interest in platform speech. Dallas Thacker and Bette Ruth Williams, ex- tempore speakers, Elmo Ferguson and Virginia Fullerton, declaimers. Bette Ruth Williams and Logan Smiley, City Champions in Pan-American Oration Contest.
