SUNDAY MORNING, JULY PART SEVEN Jr. College Role To Be Stepped Up (EDITOR'S NOTE: in (liis article, No. 7 in a scries on (he report of the Commillce on Education Beyond the High School, the role of the junior college is onllincd.) By STUART LONG Record-Chronicle Austin iiurcau colleges like Cooke County Jun- ior College have a vital role in the proposals for mak- ing higher education in Texas far better than it is now. The Governor's Committee on Education Beyond the High School envisions that where there were students in the 32 state-supported junior col- leges this spring, there will be in 10 years, half of them beginning college work, and the other half taking vocational work to learn skilled trades. Junior colleges are primarily local colleges, sup- ported by the property-taxpayers and the students with state aid averaging per student. The committee proposes a vast expansion in this program; and to encourage local taxpayers to shoul- der the added taxes it will take, it proposed that the state take full advantage of the a year in federal aid which is available by putting up in extra state aid. to be matched by local funds, and then rematclied by federal funds to pro- vide a boost in vocational and technical classes in the junior colleges. The State Board of Education agreed with this recommendation in ad- vance, and has already asked the Legislature to put up its one-fourth to get this program going. The committee further proposed that the present 32 colleges he matched in other areas. It made no specific suggestions, but junior college experts say movements are already under way to set up new ones in Galveston, Wood-Van Zandt-Rains, Dallas, Tarrant, Pampa, and Gonzales Counties. They can see the need in the future for junior colleges in the Jasper-Newton-San Augustine and Orange County _areas and in one or two South Texas and West Tex- For a related story, see on Page 8, Section 2. as areas where a group of counties could join to- gether to create a teix base large enough to support The committee's reasoning is simple. If junior college work can be improved to full college level, it's far cheaper on parents and the state to start them in college at home. The committee estimated that if students were in junior colleges in their home towns, they could get their first two college years' training at a savings of to parents ami the -slate. Putting the proposed expansion of academic work alone into dollars, the committee had these com- parisons. In the school year just closed, the state put into junior colleges. Local taxpay- ers put in Students (and parents) put in in tuition. By 1972, with both increased enrollments and in- creafied quality, the junior college costs should be to the state, to local prop- erty taxpayers and in tuition. When vocational courses are added, local costs would be nearly The committee suggested thai junior college tuition be. kept lower than that of the state colleges and universities, to create the incen- tive to go there. This would leave the 22 state col- leges freer to concentrate on junior and senior years and graduate work. Big jobs would be given to these community col- leges. They would be told to tackle the problem of basic education for the adults in Texas who are illiterates. They would be given the chore of teaching young men and women to do the compli- cated new jobs in industry in Texas. They would provide the first half of college for about stu- dents a year. While the committee proposes to pay all instruc- tional costs of the academic-type work, and to help by paying.a fourth of the cost of vocational training, it proposes that local management, and all construc- tion costs, be left to local elected junior college boards. But they stress that junior colleges cannot survive unless they have enough tax bases, and they urge creation of county-wide colleges, or multi- county colleges, or merger of junior colleges in areas where populations have declined. The proposer! IB-member coordinating board for higher education would set standards to improve junior college instruction. But primarily they would remain local community colleges.

The leader, William Epton, a N'egro and avowed Communist, was bundled into a police car shortly after he arrived at the starling point at Lenox Ave. and 116lh St. He protested that his follow- ers only intended a peaceful walk but a Negro policeman old him: "You are under arrest."
