I think I could be a Sooner fan

Thumbing through the notebook of my Dad's old drawings yesterday, looking for those Lufkin sketches, I came across this from 1939. I can see my Dad back at OU, watching coeds, and always ready to draw, a sketch pad handy with pencils in his pocket.
This is about 7 " by 11", on yellowing paper...perfect for "crimson and cream." Some things never change on a university campus. Maybe I could be a Sooner fan.
