Transcript -2- 3. This enlarged Committee set forth the following additional facts bearing on the problem: a. Since the Supreme Court handed down its decision rejecting the "separate but equal doctrine," a growing number of institutions of higher learning in the South have taken action in compliance with that ruling. b. In most of these cases the transition has been handled with very little or no emotional outbreaks or adverse publicity. Among those institutions are the following: University of Arkansas, Southwest Louisiana Institute, University of Kentucky, Virginia Polytechnic Institute, North Texas State College, and Wharton Junior College. The University of North Carolina, anticipating a court order, admitted last September a group of Negro undergraduates. c. The following institutions have complied by judicial order: University of Texas, Louisiana State University, Oklahoma University, Midwestern University, and (technically) the University of Alabama (which later expelled the student involved). The University of North Carolina last week was told that it must keep those it had admitted. d. The University of Houston has certain areas of curricular offerings which are not common to institutions of higher learning, certain others which are not available in any other Texas institution (i.e., Optometry, Radio-TV), and still others which are not available at any other institution in this immediate vicinity. Even so, in view of the "separate but equal doctrine," the University of Houston by law would still be required to take qualified applicants, despite the fact that Texas Southern University may offer courses of study similar to those offered here. k. Besides the legal considerations here noted, the Committee took cognizance of moral and ethical responsibilities here involved. It also recognized the sociological factors, and pointed up the fact that any program of integration should be developed with great care and deliberation. 5. Whether or not the above considerations are germane to the problem, the University is faced with the immediate necessity of accepting or rejecting several applicants; among these are the three cases set forth in the attached study under Paragraph 1 (e). It was observed that all three of these cases involve graduate students, and that one of these students would be a transfer from the University of Texas. 6. It was noted by the Committee that we may have no legal grounds for rejection of applicants, either graduate or undergraduate, but that because of our relatively high tuition it is believed that the number which we may expect will not be large and therefore this University will not face in the same measure as other state institutions the sociological problems involved.
