Tree Planted in Honor of VV illiam Hardin Adamson
' in Randall Park, Feb. 21, 1925
Dear Friends: The Parent-Teachers' Association of Oak Cliff High School is planting
this tree fan elml today in honor of one whom we all hold in love and high esteem-
William Hardin Adamson.
It is fitting that we honor him in the planting of a tree, something alive and growing,
f--sorffefliing which we caii' watch develop, for has not the past thirty-five years of this good
man's life been spent in teaching our boys and girls to grow up into men and women!
He has taken their young lives and helped mould them to become useful citizens. Twenty-
Iive of these years have been spent in our own community. During this time he has in-
structed, counseled, and influenced by good example the greater part of the population of
Oak Cliff. He has instilled into the very libre of the being of our young men and women
the principles of right doing and right thinking, principles of loyalty, perseverance, and
brotherly love. We refer with a great deal of pride to that wonderful "Oak Cliff Spirit"
which "puts across" all worthwhile projects. But, friends, is not this spirit a crystallization
of those principles so long taught by Mr. Adamson?
Dear little tree fwe are sorry you are not an oakl, as we place your roots into the warm
bosom of Mother Earth, may you draw from her those elements that will nourish you to
grow large and fine, and may your roots go deep beneath the surface to provide a good
anchorage from winds and storms that may assail you. May you grow to be a beautiful tree
whose green foliage will be a joy to the eye in the summer-time, and in the drab winter may
you delight the eye with the delicate tracery of your branches as they are etched against the
blue gray of the sky or the roseate glow of sunset.
May birds have a safe home in your branches, awaking at dawn with their sweetest
songs. May children play in the shade of your branches, may the tired wayfarer 'be re-
freshed as he rests at your feet, may lovers find here a safe trysting placeg and may the
sighing of the wind as it passes through your leaves speak to him who will listen, of the
love and esteem which has prompted your planting in the honor of our dear and beloved
friend of boys and girls, William Hardin Adamson.

The Parent-Teachers' Association of the Oak Cliff High School has
co-operated with the principal, Nlr. VV, H. Adamson, in every way. Com-
mittees that were appointed at the beginning of the school year have ae-
complished much for the different departments of the school.
The club gave a game tournament as a library benetit, and this en-
abled the librarian to purchase some new books. Rugs were renovated, and
new cushions and blankets were placed in the teachers' rest room. Two
girls were loaned money at a low rate of interest so that they might at-
tend college. ln indorsing Miss Louise Finley as a candidate from Texas
for the Jefferson Nlemorial Fund, the club held a game tournament and
gave the money as votes for Miss Finley. A tree was planted in Randall
Park in honor of lklr. VV. H. Adamson. These are some of the outstand-
ing works of the club.
:Xt different times the club has entertained the faculty and senior
classes. This organization has a membership of 277.
