V' COUNSELORS '
Mrs. Anna Henderson iss Zo voy r. H. R. Kuehne Miss Catherine Ball
The Technical igh School has provided for its students unusual
opportunity to secure counsel and advice, not only in choosing courses of
study or a suitable college, but also in the selection of a life job and the
actual securing of a local job.
The Counselors' office, in charge of Mrs. Henderson and Miss
McEvoy, can advise parents and students on the comparative value and
suitability of shop courses, commercial courses, art courses, or general
academic courses. Requirements for graduation and for college entrance
may be explained here. This office undertakes to straighten all program
tangles and to make special partftime programs for the boy or girl whom
economic necessity forces to work part of each day.
The Bureau of Vocational Guidance, under the direction of Mr. H. K.
Kuehne, performs two interrelated functions. One of these is to counsel
students, both individually and in groups, with a view to aiding the stu-
dents in the selection of vocations. The other function is to make surveys
of the businesses of the city for the purpose of ascertaining what types of
work are being done in the city, or are likely to be done during the next five
or ten years, and the kinds of training desirable for the various occupa-
tions. The cumulative findings of these surveys will serve as a substantial
basis for making the further changes and additions, which are sure to be
made in the curriculum of our new Technica-l High School, already unique
among high schools of the country.
The Placement Bureau, under the supervision of Miss Ball, is the
connecting link between the school and the business world. By keeping
constantly in touch with the industrial and commercial life of Dallas, this
bureau knows what the local possibilities of employment are. In the near
future, after a survey is completed, this bureau will furnish data on kinds
and possible number of junior positions open in Dallas, the general
requirements of these jobs, and the possibilities for promotion. Positions
with definite futures are sought for graduates not going to college and for
any other students who must leave school permanently. The securing of
part-time work makes it possible for many to remain in school who need
to help with support of families. The Bureau endeavors to secure for
Technical High students the choicest employment opportunities for which
their respective personalities and training fit them.

WHAT MAKES TECH.
With the closing of the iirst year, the new school has become a real
technical high school. Several departments are maintained especially to
give technical work which is not available in other schools.
In the industrial department there is a print shop, a machine shop, an
auto mechanics class, a sheet metal shop, a foundry, a wood shop, and a
In the commercial department there is a typing room, a machine
bookkeeping room, a general bookkeeping room, a stenographic room, a
business practice room, a commercial art room, and an art pottery room.
In the home economics there are two cooking and three sewing labor-
All pupils entering the school as freshmen are required to spend the
first two years in getting a general knowledge of several of the activities in
one of the three departments. In addition, about half the time is spent in
the regular academic work of high school, such as English and mathe-
Beginning with the third year, the pupil makes up a course to suit his
needs, specializing in some line such as printing, machine shop, commer-
cial art, accounting, or any of the others prescribed above. -
The aim of Tech. High is two-fold: lirst, to help pupils choose the work
they can best dog and second, to prepare them to be good citizens and to
earn a living in their chosen work.

The Dallas Technical High School Parent-Teacher Association is
organized to cooperate with faculty and student to make for better school
conditions. The association consists of seven departments, composed of
siveral committees, each making many contacts with every phase of school
Our program includes knowledge of the school curriculum, of dis-
cipline and equipment, of program and study courses in child training, and
of benevolent and altruistic aid.
The main objective is child welfare-physical, mental, and spiritual.
The Parent-Teacher Association pledges its support and endeavors to
the success of the new Technical High School.

4A SENIOR PRGPHECY
I have always heard that it is necessary to cross the palm with silver
to invoke the aid of the fortune teller's goddess. But then, my good folk,
since the spring air is balmy and my head feels the same way, I'll oblige
you-oh yes! And how-
To begin with, since there is not a gleam of silver in my palm, my
eyesight may be dim as rega-rds the future, but here goes. Ah, methinks
I see a tall and stately figure, pacing slowly before a tent on the battle field,
his bosom covered with ribbons and medals, that man is John Graham,
and he won his medals by making a goal in the Army-Navy game after
sinking a battleship on the football field. , No, no, that can't be right-but
I said-the silver. Ah, all right- ,
Our obese friend, Effie Cumings? Ah, her journalistic actvities were
such that she now fills-yes, fills-one of the most famous chairs in the
land, that of editor of the Whiz Bang.
Ah, I see another face in the crystal, Isabelle Rochelle playing oppo-
site Gelert Hughes in "Her Last Chance." Sarah Edge has been disap-
pointed in love and is now spending her time in fasting and prayer. Carol
Mansfield, the second "Calvert", will visit his beloved, Velma Maxwell the
dancer, some time in the near future.
My stars, the shapes come crowding around! Dallas Tech. must have
been the cradle for the famous of the land. James McClung, Army Lingo
Expert, is now commandant of the Clung's Heights Military Academy at
Mesquite. Edith Miers, in Paris, is vainly trying to convince her irate
parent that her drawings are pure art.
Royall Meroney and Joyce English have taken themselves to the stage
where they have become quite proficient in the adagio. . They are visiting
the city with Roy Fair's great show, "Fair's Follies." Frazier Edmonds is
the costume designer with the troupe, and all the mechanical details of the
production are faithfully attended to by Gladys Pringle.
Roy Hargrave, the scientist, has discovered a process by which the
leaves of trees may be transformed into women's clothing. He says he
will run the cost of high living down by clothing his wife, the former
Allena Barrett in the same.
Roy Smith and Warner Harper are co-editors of Printer's Ink. Louis
Kersey, nicknamed the "Cub", is now known as the "Tobacco Volstead",
because he tried to make smoking illegal.
Gordon M. Martin, Ken Mooney, and Vincent Ondrunshek, the unbeat-
able trio of lawyers, are engaged at present in trying to assuage the
hurt feelings of Howard Reed. Mr. Reed is suing Mildred Newman for
heart balm. Allie Merle Gill decided that two could fiy as cheaply as one,

Jamie Barnesis a missionary in Africa, and they say her philosophy
of religion is so powerful that everything in Africa save one tse tse fly has
been converted. She'11 get that one yet.
John Baxter, the tin plate king, has a new advertising agent with new
ideas, none other than Philip Bosco. Mr. Bosco wrote some admirable
copy, to Wit: "Crown hubby with a plate-it pays." Unfortunately, Mrs.
Baxter, the former Frances Hodge, took it to heart and crowned hubby
with a plate, but it wasn't tin, and now John is nursing a cut on his right
Willie D. Bomar turned detective. She tried to figure out the cause
of music haunting Robert Gerlach, the McKinney band leader. She finally
decided that he murdered it.
Herbert Hahnl and Alline Haswell are in China trying to compute the
number of dishes of chow mien consumed per hour. William Russ and
Floyd Smith are playing in the Dirty Spoon Cafe in Matamoras, Mexico.
Bereaved by the sudden marriage of Murray, Mose Thyfault deter-
mined to end 'it all. He decided to fly across the Trinity river, a virtually
impossible feat. He thought he'd never reach the other side, but he did
and became a hero. Logan Smith, the mathematician, has been figuring
the mileage ever since.
Dorothy Boyd, Madeline Peacock, Lucille Powell and Lois Miller are
giving concerts before the crowned heads of Europe under the managa-
ment of M. E. Hendricks.
Horace Hood is commandant of West Point, and his old friend, Char-
les Word, is the Secretary of War under President Wells.
Annie Ragsdale and Ramon Franco are operating a travel bureau and
Ralph P. Walker, the playwright, has given -them full charge of his tours
to the cities of the world. '
The crystal is blank again, as blank as my mind. But now, my
friends, the silver-the silver, here in my palm? No? Such is fortune,

4B SENIOR PROPHECY
"Professor Flecerby, Astrologist. Your Future Read."
This was the Wording on the neat sign I saw tacked on the door of a
house as I was Walking along the street.
I secured an appointment with the Professor, and then asked him to
give me the low-down on my former classmates.
He glanced at the names, pawed among the mass of papers on his
desk, made some calculations, and then began: '
"Well, Eric Robert is now captain of the Texas Rangers, and is
assisted by his aides, Jack Collins, Horace Hood, Winifred Relf, and Wil-
"Sol Herman is still collecting medals for his private collection and his
representatives to the various parts of the World are Ruth Karnes to the
Fiji Islands, Louise Clift to China, Lewis Fetzer to Fort Worth, and Nell
Fleming to Siberia."
"Well," I inquired, "What has become of Jesse Frick?
"Oh," said the Professor, "he is an English teacher at Dallas Tech.
and is a Wonder at punctuating sentences, While his secretary, Eleanor
Fatheree, has great hopes of his becoming principal.
"Then J. M. Lee," he continued, "is captain on the steamer plying
between Dallas and Fort Worth, on that beautiful river, the Trinity."
"By the Way," I asked, "Who is responsible for that improvement in
"Oh, Thomas Mason, Harold McFarland, Lester McKeg, and Clarence
Pittman were the brains of the organization that did this great Work.
4B SENIOR PROPHECY-Continued
"In the big building that they built on the bank of the river is Obie
Norton's studio. He is now one of the greatest actors of the talkies, and
he and his leading lady, De Etta Dishman, are to be married next week.
The Reverend Sid Dunken will tie the knot.
"His typist, Virginia Buckley, recently won the world's speed test
with 200W words a minute and Rosalie Autry was third with 2981 words
'iRuth Davidson, Mable Pritchett, and Bobby Short recently won the
bathing beauty contest held at White Rock. Pat Fletcher's hot dog stand
there does a thriving business and is chieiiy habitated by Carl Davis,
Lorine Bourland, William White, and John Surrat. Kirby Blakeney had
an amphibian plane there until Nena Louise Day passed by. He ran into
a tree, as he couldn't look two ways at once. His sawbones, Jake Gold-
stein, wanted to take his appendix out until he found that it had been re-
moved ten years ago.
"Billy Allen," the Professor continued, "who recently ran 90 yards
for a safety, has been chosen All-American tackle twice. His Wife, Nelle
Price, is very proud of him. Their nearest neighbors, Mary Lou Thomp-
son and Frances Melton, have gained much fame by their life-sized port-
raits of white elephants."
"Where is Bertha Russ ?" I inquired of him.
"Bertha is now a famous hula dancer in Kenneth J ones' and Clyde
Forshee's night club. Their chef is Joe Moifitt, who is a ha-sh expert. His
chief assistants are T. L. Hall, Abelardo Rodriguez, and Benny Lawrence.
Ralph Stovall, Rosa Schwarz, and Victor Correa give exhibition skating
there each night, while Spresser Wynn conducts the orchestra for their
performance. George Thornton plays the drums and hopes soon to be able
to play the 'Anvil Chorus? He wants to become a blacksmith. The orches-
tra also has: Jack Selby, flute player, Lucian Spann, cowbell player,
Francis Wilson, Jews harp player, and J. D. Touchon, bird-imitating
whistle player. Beatrice White sells cigarettes and candy there, and her
best customer is Harold O'Neal.
The Professor paused here, scratched his head, made more calcula-
tions, and then proceeded again:
"Helen L'Roy ran for Mayor and received one vote-she voted for
herself. The ticket was also made up of Charles Marsh, Dog Catcher--he
was chased by two dogs and withdrew, Curtis Andrews, Water Commis-
sioner-the voters thought he was all wetg Willard Johnson, Finance Com-
missioner-he made the mistake of asking for a loan of five dollarsf'
As the last name was checked off, the Professor sighed, and stretching
himself said, "Well, that's that."
We are the Juniors, neither so far down the line that We live in the
future, nor so far up that We live in the past. We are the medium, the
future commanders, pace makers, and path makers.
You, Who are the Seniors, perhaps Wonder Who Will take your posi-
tions in the far high places of the school, Who will rule Where yfou have
ruled, and do as you have done. What, you say, have you as a basis upon
which to base your claim and your prophecy?
This and these:
El Circulo Hispcmico: Vivieene Tallal, secretary, Jack Ball, treas-
Library Council: Catherine Wright.
Military: Spresser Wynn, Henry Spencer, Edison Good, and John
Ofrchestra: Vivieene Tallal, concert master, Spresser Wynn, student
director. Both in All-Southwestern Orchestra.
THE SENIOR SPEAKS
Ah-I am tired of prating fools,
Yellow men, trembling tools-
I am tired-tired of mirthless giggles,
Painted clowns and Worthless Wiggles-
Give me a boy Who can laugh,
And a girl Who can smile,
A boy that can fight,
And a girl Worth While-
Give me a Junior!
What could be sweeter than the Sophomore class? Honest and
truly, they seem more important than the Seniors. Don't they chew their
gum harder and "just a little longer" than anyone else? When one gets
to be a Sophomore, he or she has reached the point 'where he is "supposed
to fall in love"g or at least, he seems to think so.
The Sophs are always doing something, too. They help to win tro-
phies that make dear old Tech. proud of them. They iiock in the detention
rooms, and buy the football tickets, too. It takes the Sophomores to keep
the head of the school in the air and keep up the arguments among their
classmates. They are all so proud when they have started their second
year on that long and rugged road to High School Education. And one
other word, "Don't forget they are also happy because they are no longer
the minnows or the bait for the upper-classmen to pick on eternally?
Recipe for a Freshman class: Select only prime, innocent youngsters
from each of a dozen or so schools, scrub well behind the ears, sprinkle
liberally with bewilderment, turn loose in the high pressure melting pot of
Dallas Tech. and await results. This recipe was used with the greatest
success a few short months ago and produced that marvel of the school,
the current Freshman class.
Just how dull the life of the Sophomore would be without his unso-
phisticated little playmates is a matter for the school psychologists to
thresh out among themselves. Certain it is that the noble Junior would
expire of pure ennui, and the mind of the Senior become even more atro-
phied were it not for these interesting beings nearby. For weeks they
supply entertainment for all the military officers, as any mortal near the
windows at drill periods can testify.
But for all the laughter and slight feeling of superiority that each
class feels, there is a warm place in their hearts for this, the youngest
class. They earnestly long to guide and help, smooth out the rough places,
iix things so that the Freshmen can travel on a higher and better plane
than they. Whatever the victories they have annexed to themselves, they
are but the stepping stones for the Fish, the rungs in the ladder that leads
to the top. And so, wolf cub, realizing this. they take off their hats to you
-you, the leaders of the pack tomorrow. Prove yourselves!
The Special Classes of Technical High School are made up of boys
and girls who have dropped out of school on account of work or illness, or
who have gone to school in small towns. We have grown from three
classes to six this year and almost doubled in number since the first term.
There are no grades, but the work is so divided that no pupil need be held
back if he can do the advanced work. A number of our students from the
first term are taking part high school work while doing special class work.
The boys enter Military, pottery classes, and shop work. The girls enter
classes in Foods and Clothing, pottery, gym, and music. T
We are especially proud of this work because Mr. Cauthorn found on
his trip East this year that no other city in the U. S. is doing this 'kind

BLOWING OUR HORN
A careful check on the marks given by the high school department to
these special pupils who were partially promoted shows that out of 52
marks only six were below passing the first semester.
Josephine Goodman, a January graduate, made an average of 89.5
per cent. on her work in IB the first semester.
A little over five per cent. of our boys and 20 per cent. of our girls
are partially supporting themselves by part-time work.
Earl Canada received 335.00 from the P.-T. A. for turning in the
largest sum of money from the sale of picture show tickets.
Jack Bryan was awarded the efficiency medal for Tech. High at the
last government inspection.
Company "C" has won parade line three times in succession. Many
Special Class boys are in this group. Mose Thyfault is captain of the

Edward Vencil is the youngest aviator in Texas.

Willard Weaver is ex-president of a harmonica club at Travis School.
Charles Greeves is starting a pigeon business at Lisbon. He is spe-
cializing on Homers. He won third prize on his pigeons at the last Fair.
Joe Sanders was asked to play the harmoncia at the Adolphus on one
of their dinner programs.
Two ex-special boys have just completed a course in Commercial Art
in New York and are now designing for two wholesale houses in Dallas.
Another ex-special boy has been given a good position in the auditing
department of the Western Union.
Two girls in Mrs. Bryan's History class have organized a History
Club which meets once a week. At each meeting we study the lives of two
girls who became famous in American History, then have an interesting
program. Louise Smithermon was elected president, Mattie Louise Green,
vice-president, May Jeanette Woodward, secretary, Gladys Lobb, treas-
urer, and,Fae Bell and Gladys Mabry are the program committee.
Some of the pupils whose report cards carried home too many red
grades at the end of the first six weeks have adopted this resolution:
Early to bed and early to rise.
Work like smoke and watch our grades.
Rise, rise, rise.
One of our mottoes:
"The elevator to Success is not runningg take the stairway."

R. O. T. C.
Although in Major Carrico the cadets and the student body lost a
friend and confidant as well as an admirable and well-beloved command-
ant, they have found that loss somewhat repaired and that feeling of emp-
tiness somewhat relieved by the presence of another well-known individ-
ual, Sergeant Wm. F. Foster. Led capably and well by this gentleman,
they believe themselves to be able to cope with any situation and feel ade-
quately prepared to "carry on." A
Few students ever realize the importance of the R. O. T. C. Corps to
the school. By its excellency it brings honor and respect as surely as fame
follows the winning teams home to roost. The R. O. T. C. is invaluable.
That it trains boys to think we know well, but even more important-it
gives them the ability to lead, the power to command.
Sergeant William Foster, our present commandant, entered the serv-
ice of the United States at 22 years of age. He has seen active service in
four wars, including the Spanish-American, the Philippines, Border twice,
and the World War, and was retired from active service May 22, 1921.
For the last four years he has served in the R. O. T. C. 'of the Public
Schools of the city of Dallas. Wounded twice, with a long, iine record
behind him, Sergeant Foster is a valuable addition to our faculty group,
and Dallas Tech. is glad to renew his acquaintance and hopes for a long,
mutually pleasing friendship.

The Diamond-Disc club is an organization whose membership is restrict-
ed to the officers of the R. O. T. C. Its head and guardian is the command-
ant, Sergeant Foster.
While a purely military club, it does not foster the "Junkers" spirit,
but rather, makes for a better democracy by teaching the young men of
the school to be at once courteous and helpful, obedient without subser-
vient, resourceful but not rebellious, commanders by virtues of having
been commanded. Constantly on the qui vice, this club strikes an inter-
esting note in the school.

The Bonehead Club was organized February 28, 1929, by the home
room group of 221 under the supervision of the teacher, Mrs. Storms. The
club was organized to awaken interest in programs and home room activi-
ties. Most boys do not enjoy the usual type of program. The Bonehead
programs must be altogether comical to be accepted. To get into the club
one must do some very, very comical act or stunt in front of the group.
The first two groups to prepare stunts perfected the organization and
made and adopted rules and by-laws. All others joining must be initiated.
Every boy in the room is now a member. The spirit of the group has been
Meetings are held each Thursday morning. Dues are collected at each
meeting, and with them the club intends to have parties, wiener roasts,
and other forms of entertainment.
The club has adopted a password. The emblem of cross bones and
Skull appears on the club rings. s
The Bonehead Club has a separate project in the thrift enterprise.
Woodrow Wilson is the chairman. Tuesday's programs are serious. The
group try conscientiously to carry out the home room idea.
The club idea is working beautifully. The boys enter into the spirit
of the program in a fine Way. A

The Latin Club of Dallas Tech. was organized in order to provide an
opportunity for those who wished to know more about Latin.
The club through its programs gives each member greater power of
perception and a wider range of knowledge. It quickens the sympathies
and gives a classical background and a cultural finish to the average mind,
and enables a student to talk freely and sensibly upon ordinary subjects
out of his ken.

Organizing for the purpose of teaching boys to live Christian lives and
play fairly with themselves and the world, the Dallas Tech. Hi-Y was
formed under the sponsorship of Mr. J. S. Henry. From a small beginning
it has grown mighty. Now, everywhere in the school the blue tie with its
crimson letters is the recognized symbol of sportsmanship and the insignia
of clean manhood and Christian character.
The activities of the club are many and varied. Besides the regular
business meetings held every week there is the social side of the club. En-
tertainments given in its name are renowned for their clean quality and,
as a reporter would have it, "a good time is had by all."
The value of the work itself, value, whether to the city, state, nation,
or to the boy himself, can never be measured in mere words, and no artist
was ever born who could paint the beauty of the close friendships between
boys fostered by this club. On these two counts alone, I give you a toast-
The Hi-Y of Dallas Tech!

The Little Theater of Dallas Tech. was organized under the sponsor-
ship of Miss Madge Jones, public speaking instructor, for the purpose of
bringing hidden talent to light and developing it in the service of the
school. It affords an outlet for the energies of kindred spirits, and encour-
ages the development of sportsmanship and good citizenship.
In most of the entertainments and programs, as Well as plays and pan-
tomines, you find the members of this club. Of all the extra-curricular
activities, this probably offers the most varied and interesting programs
and gives the greatest pleasure.
The Glee Club takes it singing, not with a grain of salt, but with a
piano full of notes, and at present their aspirations consist of reaching
high C and, some day, a state championship.

This clever "double triangle" comedy is an "expose" of life on a
poverty-ridden homestead and the difficulties a good looking young girl
can get herself into if she wants to rent rooms in a house on the farm
aforesaid. The young lady in question, Agatha Kent, is determined that
she will not give up her farm and is further determined that she will, by
hook or crook, rent rooms in the rambling old family house. A young man,
Burton Forbes, blinded 'in eye and heart, comes to her house in response
to an Had." Since he believes her to be her own Great Aunt and she must
act as such, the situation becomes more complicated when Ridgely Warren,
a gentleman who has eyesight and a taste for beauty, arrives on the scene.
To Ridgely Warren she becomes Hepzibah Diggs.
Meanwhile, throughout the play, the difficulties in the love affair
between Aunt Zaida and Jim Doolittle and Deacon Wiggins comes to light.
But the Deacon marries a Sara Jones and the affair between Zaida and
Jim comes to a happy close.
But Agatha in having tenderly guided Forbes around and in writing
letters to Julia, has uncovered his love for her, and her cruel indifference
to him. In a scathing letter in her own namegto the lady in question she
makes statements that bring Julia down to the farm, where, becoming
cruelly sarcastic, she enlightens Forbes as to who Agatha Kent is. Disil-
lusioned, Forbes is determined to leave, but Ridgely Warren, by shocking
him, restores his sight and sends Agatha to him. All ends as it should.
Lucille Powell as Zaida Finch and Jack Selby as Jim Doolittle, plus
John Baxter as Deacon Wiggins, are a crack comedy team. Agatha Kent
is played well by Beatrice White, and Murray Milner as Burton Forbes is
gay and pitiful as the part requires. Algie Wells and Alline Haswell are
all they could be in their parts of Howard Kent and Phemie Tidd. And as
Ridgely Warren, Mose Thyfault is happy, carefree, and much in love. As
Mrs. Knox, Willie D. Bomar makes the part as aristocratic as that lady
was in real life, and as Julia Studley, Isabelle Rochelle is sarcastic and

This one-act play, which was entered in the One-Act Play Contest by
Dallas Tech., is a comedy touched with melodrama. Anne Carey has
believed and imagined herself in love for so long with Harold that she
doesn't wish to be otherwise. Harold, returning home from South Amer-
ica, finds the neighbors gossiping about his love affair with Anne, one he
doesn't know anything about. Anne tries every psychological trick on the
market to make Harold her husband. All in vain. At the curtain Anne
still is writing pseudo love letters in hopes Harold will some day return.
Wanda Coleman as the mother showed just the right amount of
maternal concern, and Obie Norton as Harold was sufficiently bewildered
about the letters he didn't write. As Anne, Merle Smith could qualify any
day as a writer of romantic love tales, and as a young romantic slister,
Kathleen Terry would be admirable.
"The Revolt", a one-act play by Ellis Parker Butler, was presented to
the entire student body by the members of the Dallas Tech. Little Theater.
This is a story of a girlwho goes to an Academy of Household Science to
work out her tuition. She is very ignorant and doesn't understand the
other girls at the academy. Grandma Gregg is at the head of this acad-
emy 5 she is a very meek and kind old lady, who is striving to make good,
sweet, home-loving women. She has many difficulties trying to make
home-loving wives out of the girls.
This play showed up some of the talent of the Little Theater.

The Library Council of Dallas Tech. works with two objects in view:
one being to keep perfect discipline at all times, and the other being to
help all students that appeal to them in finding whatever material they
desire. To do this quietly and eiiciently requires some effort, much good
will, and a great deal of earnestness. Because of this fact, only those
students who have a beneficient influence on other students, who have
character and ability, and who stand high in the estimation of the other
students are chosen, and any member failing in one subject faces immedi-
ate exclusion from the group.
Two members act as presiding officers each period, thus leaving Mrs.
Walraven free to attend to more important business. Since this work not
only helps the school oiicials but also trains the members of the council in
leadership, it is important in the school and marks an upward step.
The Tech. High Review was held in the school auditorium, Thursday
evening, April 18. This was a four-act comedy. The funds went to the
music department of the school. The program was as follows:
1. Selection from "The Desert Song" ------ Orchestra
2. "Wa-ve the Flag of Tech. High" -------- Quartet
3. "At Harmony Junction" ------- Vaudeville Sketch
4. Dances and Acrobatic Stunts - - - Physical Training Dept.
5. "Carolina Moon" and "Poor Punchelle" ----- Orchestra
6. "Them Was the Days" ------ All Star Faculty Cast
A 7. Play-"Good Nightv ----- Public Speaking Department
8. Selections by Orchestra.
Dallas Tech. sent two representatives, Vivieene Tallal and Spresser
Wynn, to the second All-Southwestern High School Orchestra and Chorus
contest held at Wichita,.Ka-nsas. Spresser Wynn brought honors to the
school by winning and holding the first place in the French Horn section.
Vivieene Tallal represented the school by playing the violin.
These are the winners of the Technical Interschool Tournament.
Ralph Warner played single, Murray Milner and Spresser Wynn alter-
nated in playing doubleg Mose Thyfault and Billie Campbell played single.
Patricia Kennedy and Nina Orr played doubles.
There always comes a time in athletics to build up teams for the fol-
lowing year. This is exactly what we are doing this year. With the mate-
rial Coach C. A. Bryant has this year he should easily turn out a champion-
ship team next year.
In our first meet with Highland Park, Sunset, and Oak Cliff we came
out second with 31 points. Henry Wilson was the individual star of the
meet with 14 points. He came out second in the 100- and 200-yard dashes,
first in broad jump, and second in the high jump. J. P. Lee won the high
jump and was second in the discus. Kenneth Jones won second place in
the low and high hurdles. Mose Thyfault won third place in the javelin
The track team entered the S. M. U. relays and the Stock Show meet
at Fort Worth. In these two meets track teams from all parts of the
state were represented. Tech. showed up well with the other tams.
The following men are on the track team: Henry Wilson, J. B. Lee,
O. H. Britain, Mose Thyfault, Murray Milner, Thems Matthews, ,George
Boedeker, Kenneth Jones, Philip Anton, Herm Thornhill, Abelardo Rodri-
guez, G. W. Guthrie, and Robert Shepard.
With scant material and very few players with experience, Coach
Davis and Assistant Coach Bryant undertook the stupendous task of
shaping a well-balanced basket ball team to compete in the city basket ball
race. Disregarding those obstacles, Coaches Davis and Bryant managed
to form what was called "The Fighting Wolves."
Due to the illness of two stellar players, J. B. Lee and J. W. Gann,
Tech's. showing in the first game of the season was rather poor. As the
season progressed she was improving with each game.
Her third best game was with Woodrow Wilson High. Shel gave the
Wildcats the scare of their lives, but due to the lack of experience lost the
game by the narrow margin of one basket, 2 9to 27. Milner, center, and
Lee and Wilson, guards, were the outstanding players of the game.
Three out-of-city games were played, the first two with Terrell High.
Tech. succeeded in winning the first two, but the third game, with Canton,
she lost, 19 to 16.
When the season ended Tech. was at the bottom in standing, but in
spirit she was leading, because she had given all she had to the game and
played fairly and squarely. .

1. Story, Poems, Jokes
An independent young woman, warm hearted, worldly wise, master of
herself and her mechanics-that was Cordelia. Great was she, great in
mind, soul, and body. She was smart, honest, and sincere. She was a
leader. It had ever been thus and so. But never had she had an intimate
friend, and in life as in school, she was destined to stand somewhat apart,
a pine upon a hill casting its beneficent shadow across the valley in the
heat of day, object of love and admiration of which she was unaware.
Some Grecian lad, touched by the beauty that springs from all things that
are wise and good and human, gave her that other name that it pleased all
her people to call her-Cora Cordelia, "Cordelia, the salt of the earth."
Her story thus far was as short and brilliant as her rise was rapid,
for Cora Cordelia was young. With all the school against her she had
taken up shop, majored in math, English, and science. Many-sided, ver-
satile, she had carried off the highest honors the school could bestow, and
went forth, a lone wolf, into the world.
She obtained a job in a tiny repair shop at a wage next to nothing.
She practically slaved from dawn to darkg practice strengthened her
knowledge of theory. Then there was a job on a larger plane and rapid
promotion. When other girls, wearing fragile, beautiful dresses, went to
dances, she wore overalls and grew confidential with carbon encrusted in
pistons and coaxed what she called the "rheumatic pains" from ancient
and well nigh obsolete cars. There was a miniature shop of her own that
grew so robust it burst its quarters. There were larger establishments,
and then this-this dream came true, this fairy place of shining glass and
modern equipment on Motor Row. It now stood completed. It awaited
its mistress. Q
And, next door, in a quiet office fronting on the private street that
ran between these two large automobile concerns, sat a quiet grey-eyed
man. Humorously, he rubbed his chin and stared at the green door that
guarded the entrance to the main shop across the way. He was small and
neatly built, a little man Whose personality magnified him and made him
stand out in bas-relief. He was a go-getter and head of the sales depart-
ment of the -l Motor Company. But this morning he felt his sense
of humor slowly deserting him. Lately-Well, he seemed to be losing his
selling powers, his persuasive talent, or his personality, or something.
Here now, he felt like a dish rag wrung until it was not only squeezed dry
but also torn.
He let his eyes fall to the papers on the desk, but the figures blurred
crazily. He raised his eyes and a thrill shot through him like an electric
current. In the green door, as in a frame, stood the mistress of the estab-
lishment next door. With that indescribable feeling settling in his heart
of hearts the little man gazed. Her proud head on its strong shoulders
filled his eyes with tears and the whole clean limberness of her filled him
with rejoicing. He had seen her, he thought, somewhere before. And then
he knew. He had seen her in Carthage when Dido was queen, in Rome
when Zenobia stood captive before the throne of Aureleus. Oh, I tell you,
Cupid got in some rapid work the brief second that the living picture stood
in the dark green frame.
She walked away, and to the little man it seemed that she had taken
the sun with her, and the moon. He sat there dazed and certainly suder-
ing until the floor man told him there was a wealthy customer to see him.
He tried his best. His words were halting, but all went well until he tried
most earnestly to tell the la-dy with the pretty blue eyes that the color of
the automobile would set OH her lovely dark eyes and waving black hair.
Now, the lady was a blonde. But she was wise and kind, and noting and
recognizing his condition and realizing that it was spring, she bought the
highly expensive car, to aid, she said, a worthy cause.
For a long time, Cordelia never knew of her mute worshiper across
the way. But you can hide nothing from a good mechanic, not even if you
are a high-powered salesman. So it was through these wise things that
Cordelia was casually informed of her admirer. After that, with uninten-
tional cruelty she smiled every time she faced the green door-and his
window. After many weeks exquisite bouquets made their appearance.
They were unsigned. Cordelia said she wasn't sure where they came from,
but she had an idea-. Well, even if she didn't, what of it? The mechanics
did, and after a long period of an avenue well paved with the friendly
overtures of flowers, her mechanics managed to abduct that gentleman,
bring him over and introduce his shy majesty, and for their pa-ins were
called devils and angels in the same breath by the gentleman concerned.
But they understood, and with the perversity that belongs only to women
-and mechanics-left him to the tender mercies and majestic beauty of
Cordelia. Never let any one tell you that mechanics are not matchmakers.
After that it was fairly easy to coax him over and casually abandon him in
her vicinity. They were well rewarded, for thereafter Cupid counted them
in as his aides, as they were indeed.
Interested "grease hounds" are fine diplomats and gallant gentlemen.
Later on, say around June time, when the moon, a luminous crescent of
beauty, calls all her devotees outdoors and the south wind weaves his
witchery in the swaying trees, the benevolent "knights of the grease" sat
upon the roof and meditated.
"What shall we give her ?"
"Why," said the lad from Greece, "give her a set of flawless crystal,
as flawless as she, our Cordelia, 'the salt of the earthf "
I 49 l
Four happy years I've spent with thee,
Dear fellow students true,
But now there comes the parting day
And I am feeling blue.
Las night I was a care-free boy
My play was life, my life was play,
No future called, from day to day
I laughed and romped and lived-a
But now another day I see,
A day to do with as I will,
Shall it be fraught with good or ill?
What message does that day bring
Now life calls me to a quest,
To love, to laugh, to work, to play,
To serve, to sacrifice, to pray,
He calls and he shall find me there.
To think of parting makes my heart sad,
After the many happy times I had,
With my dear friends who attended
I cannot help it, but it makes me sad.
"But why should I feel blue?" say I.
"For really we're not parted yet,
This good old class of '29
Will always stick as one, you bet."
"Cheer up," say I. "Forget the blues,
We part for just a while,
For when we go on the field of life,
'Twas but the second mile."
Many good souls have helped us through
In all the battles we've fought and
We certainly want to thank our Profs.
For everything that they have done.
As on life's way we go, on our journey
We shall praise thee, our dear Tech.
For the knowledge we have gained in
your methods we were trained,
Getting wisdom money cannot buy.
We have all passed your tests, and learn-
ed your virtues best,
With our hearts joyous and gay,
And with dreams of days of yore, press-
ing onward to the fare,
As we go on life's pathway.
Now as Father Time departs, giving
mankind all his arts,
What is greater for us to do
Than to love and cherish thee, making
others by virtues see
Our own Tech. High we are for you.
When I think of that other mother,
Who hath led my steps these years,
My voice is choked and hushed,
And my eyes are filled with tears.
How tenderly hath she led me
Along the path of light,
Given to me that wisdom
Which was mine by ancient right.
Now she giveth me a hammer,
Heavy, true, and wide,
And she giveth me a lighted lamp
To carry by my side.
The equations she hath given me
I now must make with men,
And play the game of life and death
Gallantly within my ken.
I am all that men have fought for, and
I am all that women have cried for, and
I am truth and honor and changeling
I am burning love and searing hate.
I am gayly young or bitterly old.
But I am never new and ever bold, '
And, my name is Life.
Drink, my hearties, drink!
Drink to the flag above,
Drink to her might and her mercy,
Drink to her strength and her love.
Drink to the land that gave you birth.
Drink to the Hag behind,
Drink to a heart that beats for you,
Drink to a love divine.
On coming to Bryan High
My graduation day
Which I looked to with envious eye,
Seemed ages far away.
And while the days are passed by
They seem so very long ,
As though they always would deny
The freedom they prolong.
The ages now have rolled away,
And looking back, they seem
To have slipped away without delay,
Just like a magic dream.

was sick, the society reporter was sent
to write up the fire.
This is the report he sent in:
A brilliant fire was held yesterday
afternoon at the home of Mr. and Mrs.
Sniif in Dash Street. A large number
of persons was present. Mrs. Sniff, who
recently had her hair bobbed, made a
charming escape in a pretty silk blouse,
a pattern of which appeared on our
woman's page last week. The firemen
were becomingly garbed in blue, full cut
tunics. The weather was quite delight-
ful for an affair of this kind. Because
of the fire, Mrs. Jones of 36 Dash street,
opened her home to Mrs. Sniif and her
two charming daughters. The expres-
sion was heard on all sides that the iire
was a most successful event. It must
have cost at least S25,000.

and yet they are one, for into Dallas Tech. old Bryan, beloved Bryan,
poured all of her traditons, her spirit, and her high ideals.
In this, the second volume of The Torch and Hammer, we give to the
world another comprehensive, inexpensive and "ad-less" book, a radical
departure from the old annual. We have done our best and you have
helped us, but, realizing that never is a thing perfect, absolutely all-inclu-
sive, we leave it to the future staffs to make it so.
We take this occasion to thank Mr. Kelley for his cooperation, both in
making and selling this volume. For his kindliness and patience with all
of us, words would be empty and powerless to paint our gratitude.
To Miss Dora Flack, the Sponsor of this volume, goes the sincere

rich for the direction of the printing, and to Miss Jones for the successful
direction of the Senior play. To all the other teachers not herein men-
tioned we are indebted for clean and careful guidanc, kindly words, and
whatever knowledge we may possess, and to all the school we say: "Always
