OPEN FORUM STARTS
NOVEMBER 6 WITH
The foundation of culture is knowledge. The only genuine knowledge
derives from a free interchange of
ideas. The opportunity for such interchange provided by the famed Forum of ancient Athens contributed
greatly to the brilliance of Greek culture.
The Houston Open Forum, founded
four years ago, endeavors to perform
a similarly important service to this
community ... by bringing for all
who will to hear distinguished men
of thought, of action, of affairs, of
science. This service, in a nation and
a time which has tended toward intellectual conventionality, even stagnation, every intelligent citizen who
would see his olty progress in culture
as in material thngs, is certain to appreciate.
An Eastman, a Thomas, a Russell,
a Lindsey, and now a Darrow—here
are men whose names are known the
world over. The Open Forum has given Houston the chance to see and
converse With them in the flesh, to
hear ideas, to listen to argument, to
gather information which would otherwise have never been available . .
save from remote printed pages.
Often startling, always stimulating,
tbey have generated in the minds of
thousands of Houstonians the finest
form of mental activity. Almost without execeptlon they have been questioned avidly, intelligently .
Freedom and courage have been the
keynotes of Open Forum programs—
as scarce needs be said. The Forum
has never required of audiences or
speakers any sort of conformity, preferring to assume that its public is
able to sort out its own conclusions.
Any other policy would have been in
violation of the entire spirit of the
Now the Forum needs your help to
carry ou. For the season of 1930-
1931 it has again arranged for men
of similar authority in their several
fields. The varied services involved
in the conduct of this Forum are contributed by Houstonians who believe
in the Institution, leaving only actual
expenses—speakers fees, rentals,
printing, postage, and incidentals to
These must be provided by voluntary contributions—basket collections
and yearly subscriptions to the Hous
ton Open Forum, the maximum subscription being 150.
