Transcript i 0 p V . -3- In connection with the above, however, it was observed that a number of Negroes may see fit to take their first three years of work at Texas Southern University, Prairie View, or other Negro colleges, and then transfer to the University of Houston during their senior year in order to become graduates of the University of Houston. This possibility may create a problem relative to the acceptance of transfer credit from institutions which even though accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Secondary Schools under an arrangement which allows considerable leniency in the cases of Negro institutions, may not be acceptable to the University of Houston from the standpoint of standards of scholarship. It is quite possible, therefore, that the University of Houston may see fit to require special examinations for transfer students. 7. Further facts are these: Already the University of Houston is testing Negroes for the Veterans Administration for placement purposes in other schools; we are allowing Negroes to borrow books from our library; our teams are engaging in intercollegiate athletics with Negroes; and we are permitting Negroes to participate within certain limits in campus meetings of national learned societies and organizations. 8. The Committee, in taking cognizance of the various sociological problems which must be faced as a result of integration, pointed out the possibility of Negro athletes on our teams participating in contests scheduled with institutions who would be opposed to playing against Negroes; Negro students seeking admission to various student organizations; the problem of whether or not Negro students would be housed in our dormitories, accommodated in our dining halls; etc. 9. The Committee also was apprised of the fact that there are certain accrediting agencies which will not grant accreditation to institutions which bar qualified Negroes. A case in point is the Association of American Law Schools. a. Students transferring from our College of Law to certain other law schools which are accredited by the Association of American Law Schools are finding that credit granted by the University of Houston is not being recognized because our College of Law is not accredited by the above organization. b. The Order of the Coif, an honorary legal order of high prestige, will not establish a chapter in a school which is ineligible for membership in the Association of American Law Schools. c. A complementary fact is that some governmental agencies are reluctant to grant, or are prohibited from granting, contracts to institutions which bar qualified Negroes from attendance. 10. Although a survey of the faculty has not been made on this matter, it was generally agreed among the Committee members that the faculty would accept integration with a high degree of tolerance.
