Election to the National Honor Society is the highest scholastic honor that can be
conferred on any student in the school. This society was started in Oak Cliff High
School for the purpose of honoring worthy students.
The Constitution provides for the election of members to this society on the basis
of four cardinal principles: character, scholarship, leadership, and service. Not more than
fifteen per cent of any 4A class, ten per cent of any 4B class, or five per cent of any
3A class may be elected to the society. After the elimination has been made by looli-
ing over the grades of the first three years as well as of the fourth, a list is submitted
for the approval of all the teachers.
Each member of the National Honor Society receives a goldlpin as a symbol to
help keep in mind the purposes of the society. These pins were donated this year by Mr.
The organization is purely social. The senior members gave a tea for the newly
elected junior members in December. This society also put on a play for the Scholar-
ship Club Christmas party. The annual banquet is planned for May.
The pledge of the National Honor Society is: T pledge myself to uphold the high
purposes of this Society to which I have been elected, striving in every way, by word
and deed, to make its ideals, the ideals of my school.

The Scholarship Club is one of Oak Cliff High School's greatest achievements.
Although its victories are not heralded by the newspapers and by special assemblies,
these victories appear consistently at the end of every six weeks. Ever since the begin-
ning of the club, which was formed to give recognition to that group of students
making excellent grades on their report cards, it has grown in numbers. The Scholar-
ship Club's members number, on an average, one hundred sixty.
The names of all students having an average of 90 on their report cards for six
weeks with no grade below 80 go on the monthly roll. All students maintaining this
average for one year have their names on the year record and receive a one year Linz
Award. For a four year average of 90 the student is given a four year Linz Pin: for a
four year average of 80 with no grade below 80, an Everts' Award.
It is through the untiring efforts of the Parent-Teacher Association that the
Scholarship Club has been entertained at parties without the payment of dues and has
often enjoyed refreshments at the meetings that are held every six weeks. A Christmas
party with all the gaiety of gifts and refreshments was given this year. The Parent-
Teacher Association is encouraging scholarship among the underclassmen by offering a
cash prize each semester to the underclassman making the highest average for that
semester. The prize for the fall term was given to Willibel Hooper.
Under the guidance of Miss Harris, the sponsor, the Scholarship Club in Oak Cliff
High School has grown to be the largest in Dallas. Miss Harris has been ably' assisted
by Miss Rockett, Mrs. Bramlette, Miss Crane, and Mrs. Herring, the P. T. A. sponsor.
