The Tarent-Teacher Association
ii HE Allkl of this organization during the current year has been to study condi-
if tions affecting student life with a view to creating a better understanding between
2 parents and teachersg that our principal and teachers may know that they have
p the fullest support of the parents in the program of the schoolg and that the students
l, may know that they have the sympathetic co-operation of both parents and teachers in
g their many activities. The growing interest in this association is evidenced by a mem-
ll bership in excess of two hundred and fifty.
l Outstanding speakers were secured who addressed us on the subject, f'The Adol-
Q escent Age,'l the study suggested by the Dallas Council of Parents and Teachers. We
1 have also had interesting and instructive drills in Parliamentary Law.
Upon request, several departments of the school were aided by appropriations
and by equipment.
Q Drapes were secured for lylr. Adamson's office and for the Teachers' Council
2 The outstanding feature of this year's work was the creation of the Adamson
Loan Fund. This fund is used to help needy pupils through High School.
E The association furnished the Scholarship Club a membership in the National
Organization and provided for them a bulletin board in the hall of the school. The
individual members were furnished with buttons, the object being to give this club
5 and its members the prominence among the school organizations which it rightfully
The Student Loan Fund for Girls has now between fifteen hundred and two
thousand dollars. Nine girls are borrowing from this fund for their higher education,
" and are making excellent records.
l The January graduates were entertained with a progressive dinner party, and
57 plans are formulated for entertaining the June class.
.-Xt the beginning of this year the outgoing officers entertained the incoming of-
! ficers, and in February, the lfxecutive Committee entertained the members and friends
of the association with a reception at the home of the President, Mrs. H. M. Settle.
' During the meeting of the N. lf. A., homes were provided for fifty of the Na-
ll tional Orchestra. We also provided transporation, served at Information Booths, and
on the Hospitality Committee, and served coffee and cake to those who visited Oak
1' Cliff High School.
U Our teachers gave a Stunt Program for the benefit of the Student Loan Fund for
Girls and the Adamson Loan Fund, and a picture show was given at the High School
for the benefit of the Adamson Loan Fund.
Q! ln March we entertained the Fathers' Division with an old-fashioned box supper
li and spelling match.
We want to express our appreciation for the hearty co-operation of the teachers
and the kindly counsel of our Principal, Mr. Adamson.

,gg The QQA K E meg
The :Adamson Loan F und
HAT greater or better gift can we offer our nation than the edu-
cation and guidance of our youthl This idea is the cardinal
principle of Mr. Adamson's philosophy as he moves among his
students advising where interest had flagged, and commending when boys
and girls were measuring up to their opportunities like men and women.
Often is he heard to say, "Education makes a people easy to lead, but
diilicult to driveg easy to govern, but impossible to enslave." At every
turn he displays that unselfish interest and consideration for others which
is the first requisite of a gentleman.
Honoring this heroic character who has been the inspiration of Oak
Cliff spirit in its finest and highest expression, the Parent-Teacher,s Asso-
ciation this year sponsored the creation of the Adamson Loan Fund. The
initial contribution for the fund was the gift of the splendid boys and
girls of the IQ27 January graduation class, who realized the supreme value
of an educated heart and head and who labored that others might achieve.
Other donations were quickly added through the interest and work of the
Parent-Teachers' Association. The fund is available to any boy or girl
who needs it to finish his course in the Oak Cliff High School.
A committee consisting of Mr. Adamson, a faculty and a Parent-Teach-
ers' representative, have charge of the loans.
