Transcript - 2 - d. I have had no correspondence with the one male teacher, Clarence W. Mangham of the faculty of Texas Southern University. Apparently he is not inclined to force the issue. e. Applicants for admission to undergraduate work have not been refused admission, but have been told !The matter of such admission is under serious study." f. There have been one or two applicants to the graduate dean lose transcripts were such that they would not under any circumstances be admitted. These we have rejected on the grounds of scholarship with no reference to race. On May 29, 1956, in response to the presidents inquiry as to probable reaction of our student body should integration take place, Dean J. E. Williamson replied as follows: "The subject of integration has never been a matter of much discussion among the students at the University of Houston. I have heard both extremes of philosophy expressed. There have been instances of acceptance of the colored race where group meetings involved our students and negroes. "On one occasion our student leaders gave transportation to T.S.U. students for a meeting held in Beaumont. This contact was agreeable except for an embarrassing situation arising at a drive-in enroute when they stopped for refreshments. A waitress refused to serve the mixed group in the car. "isolated expressions of violent opposition have been noted. One student called a few weeks ago, having heard a rumor that the university would receive negro students this fall. He called to report that if the University of Houston accepted negroes he would transfer to T.S.U- since it would be much cheaper. "University of Houston students, of their own decision, refrained from entering into the debate on integration at their state meeting this spring. "I believe the student body would desire to retain the present status, but the overwhelming majority would support the administration, should it be desired to effect gradual integration. I mean by that, let the first negro students be graduates seeking education in fields not offered at Texas Southern University. "in the event of the latter decision, I urge a conference with student leaders well in advance of the advent of the first negro enrollee."
