Transcript KUHT-TV, the country's first educational television station, went on the air in 1953. Mr. C. F. McElhinney became acting president after the resignation of Dr. Kemmerer. The years 1954 and 1955 saw the addition of several new buildings: the Architecture Building, the Science Building Annex, the Psychology Building, the Engineering Building, and the Home Management House. A long-sought-hope finally came true for the University in '55. The U. of H. was accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Secondary Schools. The $160,000 outdoor swimming pool was opened in 1955. Part of the funds for the pool were raised by the students through several years of Frontier Fiesta productions. Lt. Gen. A. D. Bruce was named president of the University in 1954. Dr. Clanton W. Williams became academic vice- president. The first annual Greek Songfest was held in 1955 in Cullen Auditorium. The early '50s were vintage years for Frontier Fiesta crowds. Visitors jam the midway to partake of Fiesta's fun. "^fBHttttn Stacks of pipe are waiting to be utilized in the construction of the new pool. After months of labor, students, faculty and friends are at last able to take a dip after classes. Filming is done at the nation's first educational TV station, the University's KUHT. 4 >*
