Acting P7ni'UCiQ9ZlZ, Technical High School
A school ranks high as compared with other
schools and as regarded by the people of the com-
munity according to therecords and traditions
the student body establishes for it-a school is
what its students make it.
The Dallas Technical High School enjoys a posi-
tion Well toward the top of the list of state schools.
Students of the past have placed it in this posi-
tion. Judged by the type of citizenship repre-
sented by the present student body, it Will remain
in the present enviable position. The principal
is proud to be -able to boast of the high type of
citizenship of the student body. The principal
has never called upon the student body to meet
a condition in a certain Way Without getting a
whole-hearted and perfect response. Such con-
duct reflects good school citizenship. After grad-
uation, what a sad thing it must be to reflect
back and feel in one's heart that the type of citi-
zen he Was, While in school, did not enhance the
good name of the school. On the other hand,
what a pleasure it must be to feel in one's heart
that his citizenship and scholastic attainment
Were of such character as to contribute to the
good name of the school and help place it in a
high ranking position.

IT'S ALL OVER
Once upon a time-seems that all stories start
this Way-some Wise man said that everything
must come to an end sometime, which We all
admit is trueg so we bring to an end the Work on
this senior publication, better known as Tech,-Talk.
No, We can't say we are glad it is over. Nor
can We say We have labored or slaved on it, but
We can say that We have worked hard to make a
real success of this plan of senior publication.
Words cannot express how We thank each and
every member of our graduating class and also
the "undergrads" who have Worked faithfully
with us to the end.
Only four Weeks ago did the idea of this type of
publication come to our minds. No one can realize
how hard it seemed both to our sponsor, Mr.
Goodrich, and the staE-the thought of issuing
a publication in such a short While. Finally the
last sheets of our publication have been numbered
and checked, and it is now ready to go to press.
But before signing off of Station TECH, broad-
casting from the Annual office, there is one thing
left to say: If there is any comment, good or bad,
you Wish to make, please see "yours truly."
May you read every Word in Tech-Talk with as
much happiness as We found in creating it. May
it always stand as Tech-Talk to you.

Our school has the distinction of being technical. It gives
the student an opportunity to study and receive practical
training in his chosen work.
Among the unusual courses offered are salesmanshipg ad-

In addition to the practical courses mentioned is the Place-
ment Bureau, under the supervision of Miss Katherine Ball,
the Bureau gives vocational advice to those students needing
financial assistance, those desiring to make their spare time
profitable, and those desiring experience.
Personal visits are made to heads of large concerns, making
known the service of the Bureau and asking cooperation to
assist the students. Telephone calls are made to gain inform-
ation about specific students and to remind former users of
the Bureau. Publicity pamphlets are prepared to reach cer-
tain classes of people. Talks are made before groups that
might aid or be interested.
Work is secured for boys and girls, the needy ones being
given preference. Suitable permanent work is secured for
graduates. Files are kept concerning the working students.

and books on vocational guidance. This is at the disposal of
students who care to utilize it.
Investigations are made concerning special problem stu-

able services. In especially needy cases, clothes are secured.

HISTORY OF SENIOR CLASS
,Four long years ago a bashful, awkward set of freshmen
came to the now Technical High School with the highest of
hopes and the greatest of ambitions, in quest of higher educa-
tion. And now, after four years of hardships and strifes,
intermingled with fun and pleasure, they have presumably
achieved their end C?J. CNote: See Miss Durham for in-
formationj Having attained which, they are now ready to
set out to accomplish still greater things.
These four years have been very eventful, to say the least,
and will always be remembered. Even though, as shy fresh-
men, they were taunted by the ever-so-smart Sophomores and
admonished by the high-tone Seniors, they put their faith in
the adage addressed to them thus:
Don't worry, Freshie,
Don't you cryg
You'll be a Senior
By and by.
When they became Sophomores, they inherited all the ear-
marks of such a sophisticated body and made life miserable
generally for the "fish."
As Juniors they lapsed into a sort of coma, subject to the
"iron-hand" rule of the Seniors.
And then they entered upon the last and most illustrious
year of high-school life-that of the senior year-holding the
reins of the school and furnishing the brains fpage Miss
McEvoyJ for this institution. And they indeed lived up to all
the standards and traditions handed down by former senior
classes, and have left an enviable record.
Thus concludes the history of the Senior Class, which by
no means intimates that its members are to be forgotten. For
during their high-school career they have made friendships
among faculty and stu'dent body which will neither be for-
gotten nor grow dim in the course of passing decades.

PROPHECY FOR JANUARY '30 CLASS
New York, January 30, 1940.
It was quite a coincidence after receiving your letter asking
about all of our Tech. classmates, that I should return to my
dressing room to find Carl Davis waiting for me. He invited
me to go to dinner, and we had a most delightful evening dis-
cussing our old high-school days at Tech. Carl was very sur-
prised to hear that Oscar Dooley is manager of the Cosmo-
politan Theatre and to learn he was responsible for my career.
I am sure you will be interested to know where our old class-
mates are and what they are doing. We might have known
Betty Benton would enter the journalistic field. She is now
society editor of the New York Times.
Carl has just been visiting Mr. and Mrs. Blakeney. You
remember Pat Braden and Kirby? Poor fellow, just one more
James Stone and Nena Louise Day were married last week
at the "Little Church Around the Corner", and guess who
officiated? You might know-the Reverend Eric Robert.
On his way back from Europe this fall, Carl met Miss
Durham and Winifred Relf, who is her devoted companion.
While at Paris he met Beatrice White, a costume designer.
Remember how we used to enjoy eating at the Pig Stand
at White Rock? I can't realize that it has turned out to be a
fashionable pleasure resort, where De Etta Dishman and Vir-
ginia Buckley own a very modern tea-room.
I was so surprised to hear in your letter of the present
Tech. faculty, but naturally Joe Moffitt would succeed Mr.
Goodrich as printer. However, I didn't expect Robert Payne
to be physics instructor.
Our old friend, T. J. Hall, who was so kind and sympathe-
tic, is Commander of the Salvation Army, and Donald Brown
has just received his diploma from the Silver Badge Corre-
spondence School of Detectivity.
Dude Addington is announcer of his own private radio sta-
tion in Florida. Well, I remember how he used to announce
anything, anytime, anywhere at school. At last Harold. Mc-
Farland has done something for the good of his community-
by inventing the new educational pill for high-school students.
I was fortunate enough to see some of Helen L'Roy's can-
vasses in the Metropolitan Art Gallery. Hasn't she turned
out wonderfully? Speaking of athletics, Billy Allen made the
All-American football team, and even more noted is J. B. Lee,
who entered the Olympic games and won a distinguished
medal for high pole vaulting.
Would you believe it? George Ireland is still training mon-
keys. Of course, you know Abelardo Rodriguez and J. D.
Touchon are the lightweight and heavyweight champions,
respectively, of the world. Victor Correa is the architect for
the new Rolling Pin Club Building.
Mary Lou Thompson and Frances Melton are living to-
gether in a little duplex in Fort Worth with devoted husbands
and families, but, speaking of families, Jesse Frick put it
all over the Mormons, and has had several wives in the last
Nelle Price seems to be having a marvelous time on her
yatching trips in Cuba. Some of those included in the party
are Mary Croslin, Nell Fleming, and Lewis Fetzer.
After all, Mr. Roberts' instruction in Commercial Law has
helped one of our classmates to become a noted lawyer. I
read that Ira Trantham is prosecuting "Dagger" Pruitt.
Carl saw Bobbie Short in Hollywood, where she is a well-
known dancing teacher. Betty Miller is one of her apt pupils.
You remember our handsome Carroll Roberts? He is pos-
ing for collar ads. I knew this would happen!
Ruth Karnes, as we all expected, succeeded Miss Ball in
the Placement Bureau.
We never would have thought that Joe Pellet and Bliss
Stallcup would have made good money in junk dealing.
Ethelyn Stokey is a model in a new department store in
Mesquite, and Mary Frances Owens has left her husband and
is now a cabaret dancer here in New York.
Although most of our classmates have accomplished some-
thing really worth while, Gordon Martin is still out of work.
All through these years no misfortune has come to any
member of the class, until now. While sailing in the South
Seas, the ship on which Harold O'Neal and Lester McKeg
were sailing was wrecked. They were last seen on a desolate
island. It is hoped that they will soon be back with us, safe
All this talk brings me back to high-school days, and it
makes me quite lonely to think of your being way down there
in Dallas and me here in New York. The next time Neiman's
send you on your buying trip to New York, I hope to be
here so that we may be able to have another long chat.
As ever, your friend,

f , SENIOR DAY e
Senior Day was considered, as a Whole, a very eventful
and successful day. The day opened with an assembly at nine
o'clock. A minstrel was the first number on the program,
featuring Harold O'Neal, Charles Marsh, Joe Gramsey, J. C.
Stone, and John Cuevas. The second number Was a skit of

"Icebound" was presented by the January graduating class,
December 20, 1929. The play as a whole drew much favora-
ble attention and was considered very much of a success.
This play centers around the life of the Jordan family. In
the first act the children are waiting for the mother to die,
and are quarreling over which one she is going to leave her
money to. Ben, the prodigal son, shows up and causes a
great disturbance. When the mother dies, she leaves her
money to Jane, a servant girl, who has been in the family for
seven years. Jim Day comes for Ben, but Jane goes his bond
and works him on the farm until his trial is due to come up.
In the play, Ben carries on a light flirtation with Nettie, from
which Sadie gets all the gossip and tells to the rest of the
family. The Jordans "pester', Jane to death borrowing money
from her. She gives the money to Ben, and the story turns
out as it should, with Jane getting Ben, whom she has always
The senior dance of Technical High School was held in the
gymnasium, Thursday, Decemberr19, at 3:30. The dance,
which was sponsored by Miss McEvoy, was a huge success.
As the boys were so bashful, the dance was made a Ugirls'
tag", but oh, how pleased the boys were when several girls
clamored for their dances. Music was furnished by a large
Orthophonic Victrola. Although everyone seemed to have a
good time, it is ourrbelief that Major Carrico enjoyed himself
most of all. Clf he didnlt he should have.J

THE HIGH SCHOOL SPECIAL CLASS
The High School Special Class is designed for those girls
and boys of the sixth and seventh grade who for some reason
have dropped out of school but want to return. They are
socially and physically Iit to go where they may obtain the
inspiration and environment of high-school activities. These
pupils do not do high-school work until they have completed
their elementary school.
The class was organized in 1920 with a small enrollment,
which was held at Bryan Street High. It grew rapidly until
there were six classes at Dallas Technical High School and
one at Sunset High School, comprising one hundred and fifty
students. At present four classes are in Dallas Tech. with one
hundred and twenty pupils, while Sunset has thirty pupils.
Some have graduated from high school "with honor" and
a number have continued their work successfully in college.

The Good Scholarship Club has been doing excellent work.
Not only has it had a large membership but also the grade of
work done has been .very satisfactory to the faculty.
With Miss Roberts as sponsor, several meetings have been
held to acquaint the members with each other.
Special mention goes to Anna Lee Hauskins for making an
average of 94 the first six weeks, and to Pansy Brown and
Leighton Dotson for an average of 95 the second six weeks.
Membership cards were given out each six weeks, with the
owner's name and an average on each card. This card of
merit was for the efforts of each individual.
Of course, the membership varies with new additions to
the club and loss of old members, but there are several con-
sistent workers whom we hope to award in June with the
Linz Pin for good scholarship.

With "Out of the cellar" as a battle cry, the Dallas Tech.
Wolves started the 1929 season with a strong determination
to go somewhere in the city and District 3 race. There was
a vast diierence in the new model 1929 machine in comparison
with the old one of 1928. The 1929 machine had more weight,
experience, power, and football sense.
Coaches Davis and Bryant put the athletes through long
practice sessions in order to put them in shape for their first
practice game with Terrell High. Incidently, Tech. easily
defeated Terrell by a 20-0 score. In this game the Wolves
showed good early-season form.
The Wolves realized that they were up against some tough
opposition when they tied up with the North Dallas Bull-
dogs, but they bowed their heads and gave the strong Bull-
dogs the battle of their young lives. The game ended in a
deadlock 0-0, and experts gave the Wolves a moral victory.
The Wolves made a good impression in their next game
with their blocking and tackling, but Polytechnic of Fort
Worth played an inspired game and won, 8-0. The Wolves
then journeyed to Kaufman and took on the Kaufman team
in a non-district game. The final result of this fray was 0-0.
The Tech. warriors then hooked up the Highland Park
Highlanders. When the Highlanders finished playing their
bagpipes, they were on the long end of a 13-0 score. The
Wolves then met the strong Oak Cliff Leopards and lost to
them by a score of 19-0. Incidently the Leopards finished
second in the district race.
The Wolves had their chance to howl when they met the
comparatively weak Stripling team of Fort Worth. This
game was bitterly contested from beginning to end, and it
looked like another tie game until the last few minutes of play,
when the Tech. warriors began an offensive drive which gave
them a touchdown. Long, stellar quarter, scored the winning
touchdown. Captain Pou stood out on the defense.
The Sunset High Buffaloes stampeded, and when the dust

had settled down the Wolves held the small end of a 41-2
score. In this game the Tech. gridmen showed a great im-
provement on their defense on running plays and also on their
ofensive running playsg but the flashy passing attack of the
Bisons baffled the Wolves and was responsible for the high
score. The Tech. gridmen then traveled over to Fort Worth
and tangled with the North Side Steers of that city. The
Steers flashed a good running attack and won the game by a
With the last game of the year coming up, the Tech. war-
riors were determined to crush the Forest Lions in defeat and
finish the season with a victory. The Wolves' dreams were
short-lived, as the Lions crashed their way to a victory. The
Wolves put up a game iight, but lost the game to their heavier
opponents by a 13-0 score. Critics claim that this was the
best game the Wolves played during the whole season.
The whole team should be complimented for the heads-up
football they played throughout the whole season. Being
nicknamed the "Fighting Wolves", they certainly lived up to
this nickname and displayed a world of fight in every game.
The whole team played good defensive football throughout
the whole season. Captain Pou deserves a lot of credit for
the Wonderful showing made by the team. Incidently, Pou
made four out of the six all-city teams picked by the sports
editors of the Dallas newspapers.
Coach Davis was responsible for the good showing made
by the Wolves. He worked wonders with the material on
hand, and put out a fighting team to represent Tech. Coach
Bryant should be given a world of credit for the showing made
by the forward wall. The line was light, but they carried out
their assignments well and displayed a fighting spirit in each
Immediately after the football season, candidates began
working out for basketball. The Wolves' prospects are bright
this season, and many of the critics rank them among the
leaders in the city series race. Three lettermen, Allen, Phil-
lips, and Frick, are back this year. Coach Davis booked sev-
eral practice games before the holidays, and the Wolves won
each game, and showed good early-season form. Allen and
Frick graduate at mid-term.

PROPHECY OF JUNE '30 CLASS
Q Last year, while studying chemistry under Mr. Rutledge,,I
discovered the formula of a futuristic crystal. Although I
worked diligently for some time, it was not until a few days
ago that I was successful in perfecting the thing to such an
extent that real characters could be seen moving in the depth
of the clear crystal. According to directions one must shut his
eyes, decide upon whom they wish to visualize and the number
of years in the future he wishes the vision to appear. I decided
upon ten years in the future, and of course the first people that
interested me were my classmates. Of all the students of the
June '30 class is our dear, dear, sir, Lieutenant Colonel Chile.
It seems that Mr. Marsh, after making his first million, is spend-
ing his time in Italy collecting rare perfumes.
When I opened my eyes on the second vision Iwas gazing
at a carnival ground. There stood Warren Gross as the spieler.
as I glanced behind him I caught sight of the "Hula Girls." No
wonder he was speiling so enthusiastically, for the hula girlies
consisted of Dena Andres, Nancy Lou Jones, Louise Pollard, Eva
Mae Scudder, Laura Stevens and Vivienne Tallal. There they
swayed in their grass skirts, with garlands of flowers about
their hair and bare ankles. Smiling in a most brazen manner,
Eva Mae Scudder slung a "Hi there, baby I" at me. As the girlies
were called back into the tent, out walked John Heard, with
snakes crawling about his arms and feet-a snake charmer!
We're glad to find that he really learned the art of charming
something. The show looked as if it mightbe good, so'I put in
my wish for a view of the inside.
The strong man act was p'ut on by Henry Spencer. Such a
store of muscles and vitality. A beautiful adagio dance was
given by Nancy Kirk Hall and Boyce Decker. The woman imper-
sonator, famous throughout the nation, I found was none other
than Mr. Willard Johnson. And of course, no show was com-
plete without a black-face comedy, given by J. R. Jones, Charlie
Davis, Curtis Andrews, and J. B. Stone. Leon May gave an
interpretation of Al Johnson and the show was ended.
The scene suddenly changed. fSaid she laughingly when
she heard that her mother-in-law had kicked the bucket.J The
atmosphere became very severe. I was viewing a reform school.
The proprietors appeared in straight black dresses, black cotton
hose, black oxfords and horn-rimmed glasses. I blinked several
times, the proprietors were Betty Burr and Billy Tucker. The
two very strict ladies had in their school some notorious char-
acters. The worst of them were Nona D. Shelton, George Lee
Watson, and Iola Williams. Miss Burr and Miss Tucker stated
that these were the most difficult to reform. As their assist-
ants the two ladies had Pat Fletcher, instructor of etiquette,
Henry Duke, instructor of sewing and embroidering. - I was
about to change the vision when Lawrence Galloway appeared
JUNE '30 CLASS 2?
in ballet slippers. He was the professor of dancing. He said
that after hard work he had made a real professional dancer of
Pat Huff. I was again preparing to change the vision when I
noticed Frank Keener pushing a broom. Miss Burr informed me
that he was a very efficient janitor and that she was so glad to
have him, as she had tried out so many trifling, lazy ones such
as G. C. Blakely and Coffee Hauervas.
My next Vision seemed to lie in Hollywood. I saw George
Powell directing a picture called "Flaming Youth." The three
red-heads being starred were Brantley Angell, Ozella Evans, and
Arthur Ebert, and to be sure Clarence Pittman was the valued
The next scene that came to my eyes was Merle'Smith
weeping on Alex Meletio. It was only in the picture, but Merle
said it was such a comfort to Weep on an understanding shoul-
der. And I saw still another picture in progress. It was called
"The Clinging Vine." Dorothy Clark was the vine and Willie
Simmons was the string to which she clung.
So much of the Hollywood talent seemed to come from Tech
Hi, I was anxious to see if there might be any on the New York
stage and sure enough there were the "'Three Musketeers"-
Harry Lavagino, Billie Livingston, and Bennie Miller.
"Alice-Sit-By-the-Fire'' was being played by Alma Ruth
Embree, but there really wasn't any need of sitting by the fire
because Leslie Baskett was playing the head man of the show.
I was anxious to see some of the home-makers, most theat-
rcal. Sad to say, it seemed that Harry Uttley and Windell
Franks, due to some disappointment in love, are pining their
lives away in bachelorhood. James Davis, however, is very
happily married to his devoted wife, Ruby Center. Billy Atwood
and Philip Anton are in the correspondence school business. One
of their special subjects is the art of writing love letters. Bill
Trimmer and Bob Cunningham won Edith Glass and Mildred
Hayes through the assistance of the school. I intruded upon a
family quarrel in the Barton family, Leon and his wife, formerly
Arbie Dee Pool, were having a disagreement about Mr. Barton
paying so much attention to Ruby Freeman.
n One of t-he strangest things I learned was that Mildred Cun-
ningham quit her "Curly" cold and married David Robb very
suddenly. There might have been the possibility of Mildred
marrying for money. Mr. Robb was very successful in business
and employs for Mildred's service alone-a chauffeur, Francis
Wilson, a footman, selected because of the size of his dogs, Bill
White, a butler, Lon Huffaker Cwho can really buttle, tool, and
Lois Cudd serves as a French maid what time she isn't flirting
with the butler. I noticed that Mr. and Mr. Robb were stepping
out, and I made up my mind to follow them in my vision. Their
limousine stopped at an expensive night club. When my vision
entered, I saw that Gladys Godley was the hostess of the night
28 TECH - TALK
club and Annie Long was the very attractive cigarette girl.
Among the stags on the dance floor were Lionel Dickerson,
A. L. Griffin and Murrel Adkinson, all fightin' for a dance with
Mildred Jordan. The leader of the orchestra, which turned out
to be John Surratt, and other members of the music-making
boys were John Mings, Bernard Preston, and Karty Hooper. The
special number of the night was a Spanish tango given by An-
drew Salinas and Mary Elizabeth Clark.
Murrell Adkisson owns a pawn shop. Some of his regular
customers are G. L. Tomlinson and J. B. Zimmerman. These
poor fellows became the victims of Anna Lee Hauskins, who
gold-dug them for every cent they had.
The next view that came to my eyes was that of Woodrow
Wilson, Lucian Span, and Melvin Newson eagerly watching a
ticker. Their stock went up a few points and down a few points.
The excitement was overwhelming. I, too, became excited and
as I jumped up to holler as the stocks began to fall I knocked
the crystal from the table with a smash! So I can't tell you
whether they won or lost money. This ended my visions, just
like everything ends, with a smash!

"The Enemy" was presented by the Senior Class May 23,
1930. The play as a whole won much favorable comment and
was considered very much of a success.,
The play's purpose was to put over the horrors of war to
our younger generation.
Carl Behrend and Pauli Arndt are very much in love, but
Carl's ambition is play-writing, ,much to the disgust of his
father, August Behrend. Professor Ardnt and Bruce Gordon,
his best friends, believe in him. Fritz Winckleman and Mizzie,
a married couple, show the horrors that befall families in war
times. Kurt, their son, is an example that the generation will
continue to drill. Baruska, a faithful servant, who is rather
dumb, and Jan, the man-servant of Carl, who is another example
of war's cruel ways, are good.
Errie Zink, as Carl Behrend, gives us an impersonation of
a poet, a dreamy sort of person. Wanda Coleman, as Pauli
Arndt, plays well, portraying the trials and hardships of a young
bride, wife and mother, on the "other side" during the war.
Warren Gross, as August Behrend, makes a truly sarcastic,
hardened father. Professor Arndt, played by Clifton Pringle, is
as thoughtful and incidentally, as forgetful, as college professors
are said to be. -
Alex Meletio as Bruce Gordon, the friend of Carl, gives up
the girl he loves, Pauli, to his best friend, and then gives them
both up for his country. John Duke, as Fritz Wincklernan, is an
ideal shell-shocked man, and his wife, Mizzie, played by Lora
Erle Smith, is an example of the effects of war. Alma Ruth
Embree, as their- son, Kurt, is everything a naughty, saucy little
boy, should be. Dena Andres, as Baruska, the maid, shows us
what money does to the once poor. Lawrence Gallaway, as Jan,
shows how the boys who fought are not Wanted, but take j0bS
stewing coffee. A A ' A ' A

from grade school to high school of those boys and girls whose
education has been interrupted by illness or other causes.
These classes are unique in the educational system. Dr.

of this type anywhere else in the United States.
These classes are under the direct supervision of Mr. E. B.

And you will find it more than a dream.

organganized in January, 1929, by the officers of the Cadet
JUNE 'ao CLASS 37
Corps. This was the first club of its kind to be organized in any
R. O. T. C. unit in the United States.
The club was organized to promote closer fellowship among
the cadet officers and to aid the school in any instance which
might arise. All officers are automatically members, and are
considered pledges until the initiation is held by the regular
This organization assisted in ushering at the Fair Park
during the State Teachers' Convention, held recently, and re-
ceived a letter from the president of the association commending
them for their work. Although the club is very young, it' has
done very good work in assisting the school and other organi-
The Diamond-Disc Club each year offers to any cadet pri-
vate or non-commissioned officer who has shown the greatest
improvement in military knowledge and drill ability during the
past year a scholarship to Camp Dallas. This club is sponsored
by Major E. Carrico, who at times calls it the Pistol and Dagger
The following members were elected officers of the club to
carry on the duties of the organization. The new officers will
be elected at the opening of school next September.
Retiring officers are: Lieutenant Colonel Charles B. Marsh,
president, Captain Curtis Lee Andrews Jr., vice-presidentg
Major Henry Spencer, secretary-treasurer, Captain Harry

The Rifle Team this year has shown great improvement

The officers of the Technical High School R. O. T. C. gave

38 TECH - TALK
held at the home of Judge and Mrs. Chrestman. The weather
was very agreeable and a large crowd attended, dressed in their
formal wear. The ladies were dressed in evening dresses and
the officers wore their full-dress uniforms.
C The night was a very beautiful one and the atmosphere
about the place was filled with much merriment and delight.
All seemed to enjoy themselves and are looking forward to the
next party to be given by the officers.
C The reception committee consisted' of the staff and captains.
Major and Mrs. Carrico were host and hostess and made it pos-
sible for the dance to be given.
The battalion at Dallas Technical High School was inspected
by Colonel James R. Ronayne during the month of March. He
found the corps to be in good condition due to the disagreeable
weather at that time. Considering the fact that the corps is
composed mostly of men who have had no previous military
training, the inspection was very satisfactory.
The next inspection was the Eighth Corps Area inspection
held by Colonel Castle' of Fort Sam Houston, Texas. The inspec-
tion was held in the morning at 10:30. The school was turned
out to review the parade. The inspection proceeded with each
individual company on drill, equipment and military questions.
Colonel Castle commanded the battalion as a whole. ,
The inspection was held by Lieutenant Colonel Charles
Marsh on April 25, to determine the most efficient company.
The inspecting officers were as follows: Lieutenant Colonel
Charles Marsh, Major Henry Spencer, and Captain Chas. Hobdy.
The result of the inspection was that Captain Fletcher won the
inspection by having the lesser number of mistakes in his com-
pany. Company C was therefore awarded the efficiency banner
for the year.
Each year a competitive drill is held by the schools of the
city to determine which school can furnish the best drilled men.
The company consists of the best-drilled men in the battalion.
The men in the company have shown great effort and anxiety
to win the drill this year. The crack company is commanded by
the following officers:
Captain Chares Hobdy, company commander: Lieutenant
Colonel Chas. Marsh, executive officerg Captain Pat Fletcher,
platoon commander 3 Lieutenant Korty Hooper, platoon com-
manderg Lieutenant Prentice Milam, first sergeant.

ADVICE TO R. O. T. C. CADETS
1. To an officer who asks you what you have on your tie,
look down at it, brush it off, and ask him if it looks all right.
2. If a hard-boiled sergeant asks you why your shoes are
not shined, tell him not to be that way, or people won't like him.
3. If some one asks you for your rifle while you're on
guard duty, give it to him, light a cigarette, and wait for the
4. When told to take your post, pick out the nearest fence
paling or post and hold on to it until the officer of the day comes
around. If you can not find a post, a tree will do.
5. If you have a chance to run the gauntlet several times
instead of serving a period, choose the gauntlet because you will
have a "hot time running it."
6. Don't be too egotistical if you think you are the only one
in step. The captain will notice -this and "get you told."
7. Talk to the sergeant while you are supposed to be at
attention. Call him "corporal" several times by mistake. He.
won't mind little errors like this, sergeants are so democratic.
8. When you are told to fire at will, if there is no one in
the company by the name of "Will," fire at the corporal., This
will give you a chance for promotion.
9. While stacking arms, be alittle slow and drop your rifle
once in a while. This breaks the monotony of R. O. T. C. and
will mean anoter period in your military development.
10. When an officer tells you to "Wipe it off," take your
handkerchief out, leisurely mop your face, then grin broadly.
11. When the rest of the company is doing "squads right,"
try doing "squads left," for the officers appreciate a fellow's
being different. MACON RICHARDS.
The peach tree is a rosy mist
Against a sky of blue,
But its petals will fall and fade away,
As some of our dreams will do.
Dreams that were light as a butterfly's wing,
Or sparkling as silvery dew,
They fade away to that mystic land,
And we turn to dreams that are new.
Our dreams seem to change unceasingly,
, As the fleeting years pass by,
But they brighten the darkest hour,
And lighten the leaden sky.
But don't make dreams your master,
Though beautiful they seem,
They may be only a passing fancy,
Or a flickering fire-light gleam. LAURA STEVENS.

The Pan-American League was organized by a group of

THE PUPIL'S PARADISE
As I sit in this hall, so forlorn and dense,
I Wonder why I committed this offense,
And I picture the teachers in horrible shapes.
While all sorts of tortures my mind makes,
I lay my head upon my hand
And seem to float into another land.
This is what I see:
A room full of teachers, a pupil presidingg
The teachers amongst themselves are confiding.
The pupil looks up with an annoying frown,
"Five periods!" he yells, as his fist comes down.
The teachers groan and cringe in fright
And beg and plead with all their might.
But the pupil is cruel and bloodthirsty, too.
fOh, gosh, but I Wish all this could be true.D
Now I float into another realm,
Here, too, is a pupil at the helm.
Why! It's three-sixteen, the ninth period hall!
And at the very front sits Miss Ball.
Behind her are all the rest of them,
When suddenly my dream is punctured-"BIM!"
"You're stuck!" she hollers in my ear,
The words come piercing, fierce, and clear.
JUNE 'so CLASS 43
After a long period of trial and debating, baseball was re-es-
tablished in high school this season. However, there is no finan-
cial support except that donated by the Dallas Steers.
A squad of thirty-five boys reported for practice on the
Tech team, but on account of inadequate equipment the squad
was limited to fifteen. Guy Watson was elected captain, with
C, A. Bryant coaching.
Though the boys were inexperienced and the first half of
the season closed with no victories for Tech, it was with diffi-
culty that they were defeated, for Watson's power at the bat was
a great asset to the Wolves. Beginning the second half of the
season with great determination, the Wolves are showing bet-
ter form and are expected to win some of the games.
Immediately after the close of the football season, the boys
began coming out for basketball. The coaches, Davis and
Bryant, were in hopes of a fair season, being encouraged by
the number of boys who turned out for early season practice
and the return of three letter men-namely, Allen, Frick, and
The boys entered their practice in earnest, especially those
who were trying to fill the two vacant places, and those trying
to nose out the berths which the letter men from the preceding
year were struggling to hold.
' Coach Wally Davis arranged several pre-season games in
which the Wolves showed fair form. Tech then played a two-
game series with Terrell in Tech's home gym in which the Ter-
rell boys were twice outplayed and outscored.
n Tech then Journeyed to Corsicana and engaged the Tigers in
their own back yard." The Tigers were victorious 33 to 24.
The next game was with Coach Cherry's team of North Side,
Fort Worth, in which the Tech team were victors. The last
game with .North Side was a close one, furthermore, two of
Tech's best men failed to arrive in time to play the game.
In playing Plano we defeated her decisively.
In the city series Tech was defeated each game she played,
however, she put up a great fight and strove hard to win.
The second half of the season passed as the first half, with
no victories. Though without victories, the Tech team again
fought hard and it was with difficulty that she was defeated.
Letter men were: Jesse Frick, Bill Allen, Philip Anton.
Forward: Frank Philips, center, G. C. Blakely, Frank
Keener, and Buster Warner.
' CLASS BASKETBALL TOURNAMENT
Coach Davis arranged an after-school series between the
different classes to secure funds to buy sweaters for the letter

men in basketball. The series covered a schedule of three games
to decide the inter-class championship of the school. Admission
of twenty-five cents was charged for the series.
The first game was staged between the Freshmen and Jun-
iors, with the Juniors smothering the Fish under a score of
25 to 6. -
The next game was staged between the Sophomores and
Seniors. The dignified Seniors held their shooting eye on the
basket and downed the Sophs 32 to 13.
The play-off between the two resulted in defeat of the
Seniors 23 to 223 however, the teams were evenly matched and
therefore the game that followed was a very close one.
. Sledge and Marion led the scoring for the Juniors, while
Long and Davis starred for the Seniors.
Although a large squad of boys reported for track practice,
the inconvenience of not having a field near the school, and
other reasons unknown, caused the squad to soon diminish to
only a few. Tech made no great impression in the city meet,
placing only one man in the half mile, yet several of the men
gained valuable experience and increased their speed and
Allen Bogan took second place in his heat at the city meet
while running against time, and was placed fourth in the rasce.
He also entered the district meet at Denton.
1 The whole team entered the T. C. U. and S. M. U. relays, but
competition proved much too great for these inexperienced men.
Members of the Track Team-Allen Bogan, 880-yard dash

Lee Clark, -220-yard dash and mile relay, Ben Roundtree, 100-
yard dash and mile relayg Arthur Ebert, one mile raceg Frank
Keener, 440-yard dash and mile relay.
At the close of track season Coach Davis opened a short
spring training season. Fifty or more boys reported for prac-
tice. The coach divided the letter men into two equally matched
teams and allowed Captain "Fat" Shepard and 'fScotty" Scottino
to chose equal sides from the rookies. After a few days of block-
ing, tackling, kicking, passing, and signal running the two teams
were permitted to scrimmage. Several of the boys showed good
form and Tech's hard-working coach is wearing a smile over
the outcome of the boys' efforts. Although the training season
is officially over, several of the men continue to practice.
Tech's 1930 team will be heavier, more experienced, and
more powerful than any she has yet entered on the field of

Wonder if Senior invitations are a good investment?
The students that speed so recklessly down the halls must
be planning on being ambulance drivers.
By the way the boys eat at lunch periods one would really
call them the Tech Wolves.
The lunch rush is equal to the gold rush in '49.
The cadets surely ought to make good husbands after a few
more years' training because they take orders so well.
These Seniors that talk bass to the freshmen usually talk
tenor to the teachers.

'Tis the happiest time of your life,
When either you fall or go forward-
So take this, my friend, as advice.
The time you spend in the schoolroom
And the time on your studies at home
Is time well spent for your future
When you go out to face it alone.
You owe yourself that duty,
Your father and mother above all.
Why not take advantage of this offer,
For your career depends on it all.

FAREWELL, DALLAS TECH l
When I sit down to think
O'er my life so far now spent,
And review the rugged path of by-gone days
Strewn with thorns and blossoms, too,
Sparkling sunshine with shadows .a few
Gleam along this path of yesterday.
I think how blessed I be
To have stumbled onto thee.
Dear Old Dallas Tech, the school I love so dear,
You gave me knowledge and strength,
Taught me how to act and think,
And made the future seem so clear.
Within your walls Ifve learned the plan
That God has given to every mane-
That he may bless his fellow-man and be blessed, too.
Who has taught me of the past,
Man's success and failures vast?
Let me say, dear Dallas Tech, it's you.
So now join me, classmates true,
In my praises not a few,
To this "Dear Old School" that's blessed us one and all.
And in life's future years,
Though it bring both joy and tears, .
"Hurrah for Dear Old Tech l" will be our call.

Backward, turn backward, O Time, in thy flight,
And make us Seniors again, just for tonight.
Bring us back to Tech once more-A
Just let us enter that Bryan street door.
Take us then to three-sixteen,
Where, I am sure, we all once were seen.
Take us back to that old lunchroom
Where we used to fuss and fume.
Just let us hear that 4-A assembly bell,
Then rush to Room Two pell-mell.
Even take 'us to Mrs. Lemmerhert's room,
Where all will be quiet as the Day o' Doom.
Let us walk through those halls with that dignified look
As those "freshies" pass us with their arms full o' books.
Let us hear again that dear old band
And see those cadets so erectly stand.
O, just for tonight, can't we slip once more
To dear old Tech through that Bryan street door?

SOPHOMORE CLASS POEM
When four long years have slowly passed,
And school for us is o'er at last,
When Fate, with kind but solemn look,
Is closing the chapter of her book,
We'll all look back and breathe a sigh
For those glorious days that now glide by,
For that one short year of purest gold,
We think upon each separate joy,
As happiness Without alloy,
And all those thoughts will center on
The Sophomore year that's o'er and gone.
TO THE 4-B'S LEFT BEHIND
The Senior Class of June '30 gives to the 4-B's left behind
their lovable ever-ready sponsor, Miss Daisy Polk, and their
co-operative principal, Mr. G. H. Reagan, the Tech High faculty,
those teachers we all have learned to love.
We leave to you the one policy we have found to be true-
"Work hard and stick with it, and success will be yours."
As our farewell Wish to you, our fellow-classmates, We hope
for you as joyful and happy a senior year as we have had.

A GRAMMATICAL KISS
A kiss is always a pronoun because she stands for ft.
It is masculine and feminine gender mixed: therefore,
It is a common conjunction because it connects.
It is an interjection: at least it sounds like one.
It is usually in apposition with a caress: at any rate it is
sure to follow.
A kiss can be conjugated, but never declined Crefusedj.
It is a preposition because it governs an objective "case"
Cin some casesb. However, it is not an adverb, because it can
not be compared, but it is a phrase that expresses feeling.

D A. P.: "I bin skatin'."

CIN TECH'S LUNCHROOMJ
When standing sixth place in the lunch line, always try to
slip by the guard when he lets the five ahead of you enter. If
successful in this, immediately try to run by everybody and get
your trap first. When this is done, take your eating utensils
and bend a few prongs of your fork. -
Then, for a little joke, try to slip it into some one's pocket,
making it appear as though they were stealing it. After all this
is done, move down the line, banging your tray against the rail-
ing, making as much unnecessary noise as possible.
Tell the cooks you don't like anything on the plate lunch,
and if 'you did, you know it would be like eating poison. After
these few kind deeds are done, proceed down the line and try to
slip by the cashier without paying for an extra piece of bread
Now get your water, rinse your glass out about six times,
splashing as much water on the floor as possible.
Then go to your table, salt and pepper your food and some
one else's pie, now loosen the tops of the shakers so the next
person will ruin his meal. After you have eaten all your bread,
try to swipe your neighbor's, and throw everything on the floor
that you don't like on your plate lunch.
If you have beans for lunch, take your knife in your left
hand and with your right hand place a bean on your knife.
Holding the bean between your thumb and index finger, bend
the knife back and let go, trying to lodge the bean in some one's
eye. This is a great indoor sport and will be enjoyed by all
Next, slip your candy in your pocket, leaving the tray on
the tableg try to slip by the guard at the door. After you are
outside unwrap your candy and throw the paper on the ground.
After you have followed this process, there is hardly anything
left to do but either try to get on the girls' side or slip off the
grounds and take a smoke.
Don't hesitate or be backward about doing the things stated
above, because some one else will have to clean up and the worst
thing that can happen to you is to get caught, and probably be
expelled from school.
Try these real soon and see what happens!
