Transcript • , s ♦. -1*- 11. There is a problem involved in the prospect of announcing that the University of Houston is desegregating. The Committee was of the opinion that the admission of all three of the graduate students noted in the attached report might be accomplished concurrently, with the least amount of fanfare possible under the circumstances. Being a fait accompli, it would likely be accepted more graciously and with less disturbance than if announced at considerable length in advance Conclusions ■ ^^«**»in ii i 1. It is inevitable that the University of Houston must undertake integration. 2. This should be done before court action is instituted. 3. It is highly desirable that this be accomplished with a minimum disturbance of any kind. k. The acceptance of three well-qualified Negro graduate students, whose applications now require decision on our part, might facilitate a relatively quiet, dignified transition to integration. Recommendations 1. It is recommended that the Board authorize the admission of theB3 three graduate students concurrently at the opening of the academic year 1956-57. 2. That if between now and September cases comparable to these three arise, that they be added to the group noted above. 3. That thereafter the University administration be empowered to admit well-qualified Negro students under its standards of admission. k. That the matter of public news releases preparatory to their admission be carefully studied and undertaken by the University under the most propitious circumstances possible. /s/ Clanton W. Williams
