Transcript Houston — The South's Largest A dynamic, fast growing, modern city, Houston, Texas, provides a cosmopolitan setting for the University of Houston. Moving up a step in 1960 to become the sixth largest city in the nation population-wise, and retaining its position as second largest in land area, Houston is the heart of the oil production, refining and organic chemical area of Texas. Rice, cotton and cattle are its major farming and ranching industries, while the Port of Houston is unsurpassed among the nation's ports in oil and cotton tonnage moved annually. Houston has many facets of which to be proud. Among them are: Its Texas heritage of independence gained from Mexico at the Battle of San Jacinto fought near Houston. Its endless cultural and entertainment facilities highlighted by the symphony, opera, stage plays, museums and an annual rodeo. Its advanced communications and transportation systems, culminating in International Airport. The Texas Medical Center with over a dozen institutions representing an investment of some $56 million, most of which has come from Houston philanthropy. With a gay display of colored lights, beautiful window displays and amplified carols, Houston is prettiest at Christmas time. »*_ *Gfa.ymM$ • ^fetki M. f~- Mil "';- ^'•'•'^Ifc i f^tklL
