Transcript 236 W. B. BATES CHAIRMAN BOARD OF REGENTS (TOP LEFT) W. B. Bates is the senior partner in the law firm of Fulbright, Crooker, Freeman, Bates and Jaworski as well as being chairman of the board of directors of the Bank of the Southwest. His interest in education is evidenced by his work with the University of Houston since its conception, Trinity r University, Texas State Teachers Colleges, the Development Board of the University of Texas, Houston School Board, and the Southwest Research Institute. "I grew up in the country and went to a one-room school. When I was 18, I went off to a little larger school, and I got a certificate to teach in a country school right behind the old farm ... I went to law school, studied hard and worked my way through. I graduated first in my class. I've been interested in school ever since." "I think the job of the board of regents is like that of the board of directors of a corporation." "The university should be a leader in educational matters and should conduct itself in such a way as to make people be proud of it. Just think what the public is doing for the students." "I'm at least two generations from you folks, and I suspect I show it somehow." A. J. FARFEL VICE CHAIRMAN BOARD OF REGENTS (MIDDLE LEFT) A. J. Farfel is a business man. As an independent Houston investor, he is actively involved in Funds, Inc., an investments management firm, Dun- hill International, Inc., a holding company, A. G. Spalding Bros., and Ben Franklin Savings Association. His duties as a regent are centered around the Investment Committee. "The Investment Committee has the job of creating income out of what little assets they have for investment purposes and by doing so, strive for improved values. Because of the crying and present needs of the university, we place the emphasis on income, not on spending power and therefore, we sacrifice growth." "This is a two-way street. The University of Houston is one of the greatest assets to the community, and the community, in turn, should help nurture the univeH* ty." "Each person should be given the opportunity to live up to his potentials; frustrations occur when you don't have the opportunity to reach your potentials. Education is an aid, like a tool, to help one accomplish and reach his ultimate potential." J. A. ELKINS, JR. SECRETARY BOARD OF REGENTS (LOWER RIGHT) J. A. Elkins is president of the First City National Bank. His other business interests include Eastern Air Lines, United Gas Corporation, and seven other area banks. He has served in the past as a director of the Houston branch of the Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas and the Houston Chamber of Commerce. "I don't figure my place is on the campus. They don't want me stomping around there." "I don't think a regent should have personal contact with the students because your viewpoints become warped one way or the other." "The university is important to the community in that it brings needed academic and scientific skill to the city that otherwise would not be here."
