The Forest Avenue Chapter at Dallas has a membership of 45.
Two meetings are held a month. The chapter sponsored an assem-
bly program on February 26 at which time Judge Paine L. Bush
spoke. The Junior Historians have presented to the library a
bound volume of the Quarterly and the volumes of Sam Houston's
Writings as published. Five members attended the meeting at
Arlington, and three made reports. Ten members attend the
meetings of the Dallas Historical Society. On Friday, March 15,
they presented a paid program and dance, the proceeds of which
will be used to send members to the annual meeting.
On March 15 the faculty and students of Forest Avenue High
School, Dallas, gave a broadcast over the Texas Quality Network
in which tribute was paid to the work of the Junior Historians.
We quote from the program: "Already, the Junior Historians are
supplying materials for a . .. section in the Southwestern
Historical Quarterly. . . . They are likewise participating in
regional meetings of the Association, and they will take part in
the program at the annual spring meeting in April."
The Junior Historians is young, but already we find several
hundred young Texans eagerly searching for bits of information,
documents, diaries. It is a most promising organization, one that
deserves the support of all who have the intelligence and imagina-
tion to see that the culture of this state must be of the people.
Here’s what’s next.
