As We Know Hz'112
We know we are doing nothing new,
Mr. Adamson, in congratulating you
Upon your wide-spread fame,
We would say a word just thc same.
Although we seldom sing aloud your praise
We think of you throughout the days,
Think of you as loving, kind-hearted, and true,
Think of you as always backing our white and blue.
Youire more to us than merely a principal,
Mr. Adamson, you are our prince and palg
You are the one who, through all the years,
Has shared with us our joys and tears.
In your face beams the glory of joy
In knowing and loving each girl and boyg
From the heart of each student old and new
Comes the true praise-"Mr. Adamson, we love you

The Oak Cliff High Parent-Teacher Association was organized in 1901. Through
these twenty-nine years the growth of this association has been steady and constant. We
report this year a membership of over three hundred active members. The President
of the association is a messenger from the association to the faculty, and by a close
contact with the latter learns the needs of the various departments of the school, then
she turns the responsibility of the work to the respective departments.
There are six departments in the organization with chairmen under the super-
vision of each department head. The departments are as follows:
QU Organization Department which is supervised by Mrs. S. Hetherington.
The department's duty is to take all responsibility concerning the membership, com-
munication, service, courtesy, and transportation of the club.
Q21 Program Service Department whose head is Mrs. XV. A. Leeper. This de-
partment's duty is to provide for the year book, entertainments, refreshments, programs,
Q35 Public Welfare Department which is supervised by Mrs. Whipker. This
department's duty is to make decisions concerning the juvenile Protection, Girls' Stu-
dent Loan and Thrift, and Adamson Loan Fund.
C41 Educational Department is supervised by Mrs. R. F. Henderson. This de-
partments duty is to promote and sponsor art, music, R. O. T. C., scholarship, and
C51 Health Department is directed by Mrs. S. Cogburn. This departments duty
is to sponsor athletics, social and student hygiene, and physical education in the school.
Q61 Efficiency Department is supervised by Mrs. C. C. jones. The duty of this
department is to take care of finances, house and ground problems, magazines, and
matters of publicity.
As a result of the function of each department the various phases of the school
work are properly cared for.
The girls and boys of high school age certainly need unlimited help through
counselors, guides, and real friends, and the Oak Cliff High School and its organiza-
tions fill this necessity. Ability to guide wisely at this time is a real test of parent-
hood. The High School Parent-Teacher Association can be made a clearing house
for ideas in developing the character and growth of youth.
This organization endeavors to assist parents who are poorly acquainted with the
aims of the many interesting educational activities of the modern high school. We
stress the co-operation between the school and the home in daily study preparation.
We strive to have our school head the list of the six high schools in the city by reduc-
ing the number of absentees and tardies.
One of our two outstanding objectives is to promote scholarship among the stu-
dent body. This phase of our work is emphasized in our meetings and through the
co-operation of the teachers. Our association endeavors to increase the members of
the Scholarship Club by giving parties and entertainments for those who achieve the
honor of membership in the club. We offer a cash prize to the underclassman who
attains the highest average for each semester.
Another of our main objectives is to supervise the welfare work in the school.
This work is being promoted through the continued co-operation of Miss Graves with
the Parent-Teacher Association.
With the zeal and energy already manifested in the past by the faculty, student
body, and parents there is all evidence that the work of the association can attain a
still higher level.
The Dads' Club in Oak Cliff High is a very active organization which works for
the welfare of the school. There are Hfty-one active members in the club.
