Transcript A Community Within Amidst Houston's skyscrapers, traffic jams, and plush suburbs grows her university. One out of every fifty of the million Houston- ians takes part in the fife of this community within a city. Just as Houston is one of a kind among the nation's cities with her un-zoned hodgepodge of drive-in groceries, drive-in movies, drive-in restaurants, drive- in banks, and expensive homes, the University of Houston is unique among higher education facilities. On both sides of every Texas limestone wall completely untouched by the tendrils of ivy, are people of all nations, of all colors, of all talents, with every imaginable amount of ambition. There &re Greeks calling the independents "apathetic" and independents griping about the "dirty Greeks"—Democrats proclaiming the Republicans "archaic," and Republicans denouncing the Democrats for their "creeping socialism;" the intellectuals losing patience with the average or unproductive, who in turn are amused and exasperated with their superiors. And then there are those who come and go without saying or doing anything. UH is an academic world equipped to handle both brilliance and the twentieth century sin of mediocrity. This is the era of the three-hour exam and the I I-hundred student class. This is where people Qre educated and educate themselves: this is where the world is revealed, where discoveries are made, where our culture is perpetuated. And this is where 20 thousand people are part of a story that could not be told anywhere else at any other time—it belongs only to Houston, only to UH, and only to 1965-66. L
