As the development of Dallas indicates the un-
selfish efforts of courageous citizens, so Adam-
son's progress reflects the faithful service of its
own leaders. Cheerful in disposition and fair in
her dealings with others, Miss Fannie Graves is
outstanding in this group. To her the Oak of l943
is affectionately dedicated.

This is my city,
Standing where the high plains meet the low
Standing as a "no man's land" between the three
o'clock hurly-burly of Chicago
And the three o'clock emptiness of San Antonio,
But she holds her head up proudly,
For she is a queen crowned with myriad lights
And myriad stars.
She is a debutante whose coming-out party
ls still a topic of American conversation.
True, she is a city of white towers, but
Her feet are firmly planted in the warm, brown
And you can walk her streets to their limits and say,
"Now this was an independent town once,
This was Cedar Springs, or Three Forks or Hord's
West of the Trinity the prairie begins,
Just little patches of mesquite at first
And then the plains alone,
But here on the west bank there are oak trees,
Here the soil is fertile and birds sing in this shade.
Among these little hills which Fourier never saw
A people came to live, from Paris and Orleans and
And still you find their names on rural mail boxes,
And still their children build upon this land.
Perhaps that wailing wind is not a wind,
But the singing and the sighing of Louise Dussau,
Who was woo'd with the aid of an English-French
What about the roily old river, the muddy Trinity?
ln late summer there are dry cracks gaping at her
But in the spring she overflows those banks
And goes travelling outward to the restraining
Oh, you can't say she's an ugly river,
The bridges and viaducts save her from that.
You should drive from the west into my city
On a misty winter day when the viaduct lights
Reach out and touch each other in the gloom,
And the clouds reflect the colored beacons of
When the Sally Haynes floated up our river
There were only bonfires and small groups of
people to welcome her,
And the steamboat's crew could hear but voices
Calling out from the bank.
Our river is the same old unpredictable river
The willows along her banks still turn pink then
In the spring
And the sun still shines down on kinky, black heads
As darky families fish in the muddy waters.
There upon the courthouse steps the old men sit,
Here upon the lawn John Neely Bryan's cabin
Where Margaret Beeman and her husband made
And on these foundations was built this city.
Blithe Pegasus a glittering landmark is,
Ever pacing the skies above us,
General Lee and Traveller charge on despite
defeat and desolation,
Brave men and true stand here a goodly company,
Travis, Houston, Crockett, Austin, Bowie, standing
in a row
Looking down on newer times and newer wars and
Hostess to a million guests each year my lady is,
Always she has a bright smile and warm hand-
clasp for those,
But as necessity arises, she arises, too,
And with the wisdom of Athena, the courage of
St. .loan and
The fire of Sif, plunges into battle.
She is as beautiful carrying a flag as a gem-
And she has flown a multitude of flags in her day,
Even as other cities of Texas have.
Today patriarchal fathers of Dallas sit along with
"Why, I remember when I lived near here as a
Back in '57 it was, and buffalo hides were still
being sold on Main Street."
But now, what about now? This century flower has
Dallas is no longer a child or a gangling half-
grown school girl,
She is a woman of poise and grace that comes
only with years,
She carries her dignity well, but in Spring she
And twines redbuds in her golden hair.

This group, organized in I94I and sponsored by the Texas
State Historical Association, is the twenty-fifth ot the titty
chapters throughout the slate. Its purpose is to stimulate
interest in local and Texas history, to uncover and publish
items concerning them, ard to visit places of historical sig-
nificance in the community, This year, visits to Millermore and
to La Reunion, old French Town, were particularly instructive
and great fun. The Junior Historian, official magazine of the
organization, published two articles written by youthful his-
torians of the Adamson club. "MilIermore," by .lack Earnest,
appeared in the January issue, and 'iTales ofthe Trail," by
Patsy Pledge, in the April number.

An easel, paint brushes, a lovely picture-and what have
you? Why, an artist, a member of the Art Club!
Organized to aid in developing art appreciation and cre-
ative eFfort at Adamson, the club is growing in popularity. At
its informal semi-monthly meetings, discussions of current art
topics create much interest in the allied arts.
Peggy Archibald presented one of the year's most outstand-
ing programs when she gave a talk entitled "Glass as a
Hobby," and displayed a collection of beautiful old glass.
At another time, Imogene Smyer's discussion ot the part
played by posters in the war effort was most instructive and
inspirational. In cooperation with the Junior Red Cross, the
club has designed menu covers and executed them in stencils
and block printing.

The Pan American Student Forum of Adamson, o unit of
the international organization, is composed of students who
maintain a lively interest in the Spanish language and the
people who speak it, At the meetings members talk, sing,
play, and dine, using the language of our Southern neighbors.
This picture was made at the Christmas party on December
22, when the club, following an old Mexican custom, broke
the pinata in order to scatter its store of goodies, which were
concealed in a paper bag under the voluminous skirts. At
that time the club also packed a basket of Christmas food,
toys, and clothing, to be sent to Padre Renoso, priest ot the
Sacred Heart Church in Little Mexico, for distribution among
the boys and girls ofthe parish.
The club yearly entertains charming and illustrious guests.
Last spring Senorita Maria Christina Dittel, from Costa Rica,
delighted the members on several occasions. Mexican Consul
Luis Perez-Abreu often visits Adamson to present prizes won

The two-year Distributive Education program offered in Adamson is under the
direction of Miss Neel. lt is designed to prepare students for retail employment follow-
ing their graduation. They spend Saturday and part of every school day working at
regular iobs in business establishments.
To point out the importance of their contribution to our economic system is irrele-
vant. They are paid for their work but the most important part of his school-plus-work
program is the opportunity for building up to places of leadership in the retail field.
x G if
Applicants for this course must be sixteen years old and of
iunior classification. They must have recommendations and main-
tain a "C" scholastic average.
Those who have participated in the project this year are:
Naoma Armstrong, Virginia Carney, Maxine Carstens, Wynona
Cayce, Serena Coppage, Delpha Dawson, Lenore Dretzka, Billye
Charles James, Cornelia Malone, Virginia Reese, Virginia Thomas,
lnez Walker, Dorothy Weiser, Martha Lee Whitley, Pauline Wray,
Don Alexander, Graham Cook, James Cowan, Watson Crumbie,
David England, and Lealand Hobbs.
There is no better example of the part
Adamson is playing in the war effort than
this course in aeronautics. During air-cadet
training, boys who have had this course
will be able to devote more time to flying,
and fewer boys will be "washed out." ln
classes the pupils study the parts and con-
trol ofthe plane, aerodynamics, navigation,
and meteorology. They also study the Civil
Aeronautics Regulations and keep scrap-
books containing pictures and information
about planes. Students may subscribe to an
interesting weekly paper, Current Aviation.
By means of these activities the class is
kept well-informed on the most recent de-
velopments in aviation.
Prerequisites for the course are credits
in one year of algebra and one-half year
of geometry and a classification of 3A or
above. Classes are open to both boys and
girls, Aeronautics is a one-year course
which has proved to be very successful dur-
ing the first year it has been offered at
Adamson. Mr. Ballard and Mrs. Fulton are
in charge of these classes.
