THE HISTORY OF Oak Clif High School The happy years go by, liach like a crystal string Upon the thread of time, Or like a song we sing. We gaze in each clear gem And see the names of those Who have won fame and joy Along the lines they chose. As a small acorn grows Into an oak tree great Our school has also grown Into its high estate. N 1901, Oak Cliff High School, which provided for both elementary and high school students, originated in the old Central School Building on Tenth Street. The faculty was composed of eleven members with Mr. F. E. Peters as principal. In 1903, Mr. VV. H. Adamson became the principal. The number of students increased from four hundred in 1913 to twelve hundred in 1916. At this time the present Oak Cliff High School Building was occupied. Tn 1924, twenty-four hundred students attended Oak Cliff, but since Sunset High School has been erected, the number has decreased to twelve hundred. There were sixty teachers in 1924, there are now fifty- ODC. There are many iersonal awards resented to students. Mr. oe Thom son, . V P a former student of Oak Chfl, and Mr. Gwen Barnes present pins to the mem- bers of the National Honor Society. Mr. Martin Weiss and Messers. Tabor present awards to the student making the highest average for four years. Mr. Jno. E. MQUYYTSS presents attendance awards. The P.-T. A. offers scholarships for five or more stu- dents as well as donating hundreds of dollars everv vear for school activities. 1 e , . H Not only has Qak Cliff been the recipient of many personal gifts, but she has also won and maintained a worthy reputation in athletics and scholarship as is shown by .the fact that she has acquired over sixty trophies since 1916. lVlr. John Fouts, who is now superintendent of athletics for the Dallas High Schools, was the Hrst coach. While the citizenship of Uak Cliff and the P.-T. A. have meant much to the progress of the school, perhaps the most important factor has been the harmony and co-operation found in the school itself, in the principal, the faculty and the student body. From this unity has developed the well known '1Qak Cliff Spirit." Materizil evidence of this is manifested in the fact that the school has been able to purchase "The Roundupf' painted by Frank Reaugh. The numerous pieces of Statuary, the trophy case, the beautiful velvet stage and window curtains in the auditorium, all bespeak the loyalty of the former classes. May Oak Cliff ever grow and prosper, and may the Qak Cliff Spirit never die.
