think that Houston Junior College students should be allowed to
have outside dates should they so
desire, and we also think that the
dance committee should have the right
to Issue invitations and bids to a
limited amount of outside people. The
committee should have the right to
refuse the admittance of any person
or persons whom they deem undesirable.
We believe that these dances will
stimulate school activity and help to
bring our students into a closer, more
unified body. Many of the present
students have expressed the same
opinion as we have stated.
We hope that this petition letter
will meet with your approval and
would like to learn the outcome of
your decision in the near future.
