Perhaps her most exciting history began in 1901 when the city of Oak Cliff merged its fortunes and educational system with the City of Dallas. Mr. W. H. Adamson, then super- intendent of the Oak Cliff Public Schools, became principal of Oak Cliff High School, a tree-shaded, dignified old red brick edifice on Tenth Street at Crawford. Rapid growth followed, and in 1915 -with considerable pride-the students and faculty began the fall term in a new building at the present location. By 1920, enlargement was necessary. Our lunch room, auditorium, and extensions on the north wings were constructed. gg Q ln 1935, after thirty-six years of service, the greatly loved William Hardin Adamson died, and was succeeded by his friend and former coach, Mr. H. A. Allen. A short time later, in honor of Mr. Adamson, Oak Cliff High School became W. H. Adamson High School. The growing pains suffered for many years recurred in 1939. New wings were added on the east and west, and the facade was rebuilt. In 1944, Adamson's reputation is wide. Her ex-students and ex-faculty members are rendering service all over the world. Her beloved halls are paced by restless, eager feet. Surely she will continue for long years as a gleaming symbol of those characteristics bequeathed to her by the man whose name she bears-friendship, loyalty, honest, endeavour. These pictures were made by Sergeant Marvin G. Deg 0 e nl e C1 es Clrlnes. f th U td St t M A 1942 graduate of Ada Sergeant Degenhart is naw serv 5 as an aerial photog somewhere in the Pacific theatre of wa r. SQLJN 91, JL vwQ2O P V C, PIJHEWIJHII Not only the lessons learned from textbooks, but the friendships and activities of our high school days will live in our memory forever. To make these memories more vivid and to help us maintain our youthful demo- cratic ideals, we, the Senior Class, present this, the 1944 edition of U15 Oak vvwo fjjby. "Histories are as perfect as the Historian is wise and is gifted with an eye and a soul." -Thomas Carlyle. ln appreciation of her wise counsel, her rare gift of im- parting knowledge, her comprehension of our country and its relation to the world, the Senior Class lovingly oledicates this, the thirty-seconol volume of the Oak, to "the noblest Roman of them all," MISS ALBERTA COOPER "They gave their merry youth away For country and for God" Jack Beckham Marvin Beiseker Gene Campbell Robert Carlisle G. W. Chandler Thomas J. Cole Howard Dailey Joe Foley Clifford L. Fritz Rex Gossett Jack L. Griffin Almon Hare Bill Hagendoorn Foster Lee Lemly Earl McDermont Roy McNutt Ernest Matthews Lee Musgrove Thomas Dick Neal Jerrell Hardy Page Andrew J. Parks Jay E. Pietzsch 4 R. A. Pitts Ernest A. Redwine Jr John F. Sprague R. W. Vantrees Truman Wilder Bob Wiskochil Tom M. Wylie William H. Young The students of Adamson stand reverently before this noble example of faithfulness to duty. Our grief at their sacrifice is exceeded only by our pride in their achievement. To their families and friends, we offer this consolmg thought: "To live in hearts we leave behind, ls not to die." To the hundreds of our ex-students still in the service of our country we pledge everlasting gratitude. We shall strive in every deed to attain the high standards of devotion and courage which they have set before us, hoping that their example will truly lead us into a world of peace and security. To them and their loved ones we offer these words of en- couragement: "The Old Commandments stand: 'ln patience keep your heart, In strength lift up your hand.' No easy hope or lies Shall bring us to our goal, But iron sacrifice Of body, will, and soul."

SPRING RAIN l hear the rain, the lovely falling rain, As gently from the sky it hastens down, lt fills the air with splashy liquid bound And softly taps upon the window pane, There is no highway, road, or sleeping path, No flower or bush, or waving willow tall, No bird that loves to take a soothing bath, But is refreshed-to all new life doth call. O, is there benediction in this guise? Why vanish now our wintry frown and tear? The silvery rain descending from the skies Could not alone dispel our every fear And give us hope beyond our hours of pain- 'Tis clear enough: God speaks to us in rain. -Jackie Cline.

Soon aptly at my desk I was reclined, And on the board I saw an underlined Phrase, stating that term themes were due in May. At once my manner was no longer gay, For nothing on my subiecl could I find. Reluctantly, I changed my once made mind And chose another author right away. Now, some of the allotted weeks have passed. This reading time in reading has been spent. To novels, plays, my ettorts have I lent. I'm ready now to start this theme at last. I wonder, Theme, wilt thou by May be done Or shall I wilt before thou are begun? -Jean Vining.

TO ALPHEUS When God from his celestial throne did throw The golden sun from off his forge divine, A drop of molten metal did incline Through tenuous space to our own earth below, Where, through rivers of Cathay, did flow To me this gift from Heaven. Thou are mine, Oh onyx eyed, enrobed with gilt lace fine. My heart doth quake for thy life's fragile glow. ln thee I see pure faith in Him above, A perfect sense of heav'nly harmony, Obedient, ioyful for thy Maker's sake. . lf only Man would find this humble love l-le could forever dwell in peace, like thee, My tiny gold-fish, in thy silv'ry lake. -James Alfred Hitt.

ON THE MUSIC 'OF A VIOLIN The haunting tone of music filled my soul. Harmonious, pure, and tender as the night, A magic nocturne from a violin stole Across the evening like an elfin sprite And watted oFf on wings of lilting song All care, distress, and conflict of my mind. Such raptured melody seemed to belong To angel voices, not to man, confined To Earth, who us so many ioys denies. l wondered, as the music's glory swelled, From where such inspiration could arise, Why mystic fays the wondrous secret held. Oh God! How could we mortals fail to see That such ecstatic strains are born in Thee. -Dorothy Watkins.

ENCHANTED NIGHT Oh Night, thou art a fair enchanted queen Who wears the crescent moon for royal crown, Who covers sky and earth with silver sheen And sends the painful moonbeams drifting down. The royal robe is soft, black velvet shade lt's strewn with stars, which are thy precious gems. Thy minstrel nightly sings within the glade To praise thy beauty fair with ioyful hymns. Thy pathway's lighted with the pale starlight, 'Tis scattered over earth and sky and sea. Thy fairy courtiers are the fireflies bright, They dart and dance all night with motion free. No earthly queen has beauty quite so rare As thee, sweet Night, so stately and so fair. -Jamie Caldwell.

Their suggestion to the government that names of the original French settlers be given to the streets in the La Reunion housing proiect was accepted and the proiect was completed as planned. Excursions to various points of interest in the city betook them to the Beeman Cemetery where the 'Family of Margaret Beeman is buried. The olticial magazine, the Texas Junior Historian, frequently contains contributions from the Adamson club, the latest being a letter written by Mariorie Clark's great-grandfather, a general dur- ing the Mexican War. On April 5, the third anniversary of the club was celebrated with a birthday party-cake and all -at one of the oldest houses in Oak CliFF, the Hord home in Marsalis Park.

Twice a year these words are solemnly spoken by the new members ofthe National Honor Society. The impressive ceremony, replete with white dresses, soft music, mellow candlelight, and gold and white lapel ribbons, lingers long in the memory of those who witness it. The Society dedicated its entire program of i943-44 to Adamson's servicemen whose great contribution to school, country, and God are constant reminders of our patriotic obligation. During the Fourth War Loan Drive, in a vigorous bond campaign, they sold 525,000 in War Bonds and Stamps to the student body and faculty of this school. In this and many other ways the group has lived up to its four cornerstones: Character, Service, Leadership, and Scholarship. JZ f ,.,, iiii 1'-'- 2 :121 5 ' , rii' M: gluu ' g ,,., :,,.

Freddie and Dash, iealous of Bart, discovered the scheme and threatened to reveal the disguise. Kitsie and Dot complicated affairs, and Dorie's father proved an added menace. Also contributing to the confusion were Perky, the small sister, Elva, the moody mother, and Aunt Amity, who was trying to settle theawkward predicament. ln a side-splitting scene Freddie and Dash tricked Dorie into revealing her identity. However, after such a hectic experience, Dorie decided that Bart was a far better career than house designing, and Dash and Freddie learned that their interests were really with Dorie's friends, Kitsie and Dot.

Rhea Nichols won first in the 880 and George Theis tied for first in the high iump. ln pre-season practice meets, the Blue and White won three of nine meets. ln the regional meet, Adamson won second place by scoring 25V1 points. Ratliff was first in the shot and Surley second in the 880. Rolfe Beaudry lost first place in the mile by a mere one-tenth of a second! At the state race in Austin, Rhea Nichols won first place in the 880-yard run and Vernon Ratliff placed in the shot and broad iump. Eight men lettered.

However, title chances were shaken up when they were defeated by Sunset, 4-3. They went into a tie for first place by defeating Crozier Tech, but dropped back to second place when they were defeated by Woodrow Wilson. Winning over Sunset's Bisons l-O in their last game played before this printing, the Leopards have three remaining games to play to decide their standing in the 1944 city title race. Three lettermen make up the strength of the l944 squad. They are Jack Redding, Jack Lindsey and Robert Argadine, Lindsey is a two-year letterman.

Page One Hundred Thirty-four ,, I REMEMBER A SENIOR September 13-"School days, school days, dear old golden rule days," that's what the song says. I'm not so sure, anyway, here they are and we'lI make the best of them. Noticed some new faces among the faculty. Col. Watkins has taken over the music department. Mr. George Brown from Baude Storey is now guiding students in the field of physics. Mrs. Mary Carter and Miss Harriet Gibson are assisting Miss Graves. Then there's our new nurse, Miss Ivy, and the dietitian, Miss Tynes. September 'l5-Classes are gradually getting straightened out. A few frantic 4A's and puzzled freshmen still rushing around and getting nowhere. Noses have been counted and statistics reveal there are about 200 less Adamsonites this year than last. September 'I6-Ho, Humm-school isn't so bad-if you're a senior. September 20-The Pep Squad is under the command of Peggy Render, Edith Province and Billa Stovall, Della Lou Sutton, Billie Jo Burke, Hannah Jo Parris, Sylvia Jenson, Bobbie Dinsmore and Norma Flood add that "feminine touch" to the Blue Band. September 23-The 4A's show their good iudgment by electing capable leaders: John Young, Scott Keahey, Alleen Sullivan, Ivy Fain and Betty Lou Hix. September 24-Student Council begins its term of work with Jack Redding, president. September 25-Thrilling game with Forest ended in l2-0 victory for the Leopards. September 27-Eight pretty girls appeared today wearing the offi- cial uniform of R. O. T. C. sponsors. Betty Lou Garmon, Mary Lial Glascock, Louise Steeley, Pat Kelly, Jean Watson and Edna Jo Williams. October l-Short, peppy, Dollie Jane Woodall elected to fill vacancy of Senior Cheer Leader. Dallie will add high flavor to the cheering which is led by J. W. Morris, Barbara Johnson, Jack Davis, Milton Elms and Eleanor Wall complete the group. October I8-Was inspired by Col. Cohee, Chaplain of the Eighth Service Command, who challenged the high school students to be worthy of the sacrifices of the men at Bataan. October 'I9-That vivacious Thespian, Pat Kelley, and that "Wanna Buy a Ticket?" man, Jimmy Swope, were chosen to lead the cast of the January class play. October 20-Who minds rationing?
