JONAS V hen the University of Houston began its new term in September 1944, veterans of World War II were coming into its student body to pick up their education where they left off before going into the fighting forces of their country. \\ hen the first meeting was called for a conference with the officials of the Veterans Administration who were here o arrange w-ith the University tor the training of returned veterans, twenty-nine students were on hand. Near the end of September Dr. W. W Kemmerer designated R. O. Jonas as chief counselor for veterans, with instructions "to do whatever is necessary to develop a successful program of education for veterans." As the program expanded, M. L. Ray was designated veterans counselor tor vocational and technical students and O. W. Rote was named as additional counselor.. Faculty members from each department were called upon tor conferences in their fields To serve veterans who had not completed high school, or who had been out of school some time, or who wished better backgrounds tor engineering or technical programs or who wanted related work to go with vocational training a group of loO courses proved to be an innovation o real usefulness. Also, the policy was started of admitting veterans at any time during he year. Gmdance fad. .es of the University were put at the disposal of veterans, as well as facilities for helping them file necessary papers. Finally near the end of the year it was announced by Dr. E. E. Oberholtzer that the University ot Houston had been selected as the site for an area advisement center of the Veterans Administration In October 1944 the machinery was set in motion to organize a Veterans Club, to be a student society independent of any nat.onal or state allihation. Its purpose was to bring veterans together for fellowship and also to work toward better school spirit and school activities tor the University as a whole. A ^g reception and dance in November and a campaign for a campus memorial in honor of former members of the student body who have given their hves were the two highlights in the year s accomplishments. Participation in assembly pro grams, radio, and University activities drew the interest of other service men and women.
