We started out a little frightened
A little scared of what it would be like
It was big and it was crowded
Soon classes became smaller
Teachers a little nicer
Then we became friends
With each other and with the school
The SUB became our hang-out
We shuffled cards
And racked up the balls
We plotted and schemed
Laughed and wept
We became close
At first they made us feel stupid
Challenged our old beliefs
Made us all
And shattered our childhood dreams
They bored us with details
Put us to sleep with lectures
iney embarrassed us with questions
Which had no answers
And then when we thought
All was lost
they were teaching us to think

We are the first
We set the pace
And we made the examples
We write the songs
And choose the colors
We lay the foundations
On which they must build
We are the ones to make traditions
We are the traditions
. of a COLLEGE
The campus is completed
The friendships are made
The instructors have begun
To mold our minds
Now the college has begun
For college is a balance of all three
Pulling towards that final goal
A PLEDGE to serve
A pledge is made
ln return for land and the grant
A pledge to serve the community
With the best
Equipment, instructors, and facilities
For the education of generations to come
Now it is finished
And the fulfillment
The fulfillment of the need
To increase knowledge
And to improve ideas
lt is the fini'h
But it is also a new beginning

Tradition-where does it begin: lt evolves
from the groups who dare to dream. Some of
the plans workg others are modified or dis-
carded. Accidental happenings cause a sen-
sation and are repeated. Dancing on con-
crete in the midst of uncompleted buildings
is a beginning. Lectures in the gym, parties
in the SUB -tradition in the making. School
colors, a flag, a mascot, a newspaper: all
necessary precedents, Sadie Hawkins Day,
intramurals, and a drama production serve to
break the monotony. Suddenly college takes
on new dimensions as we become active.

First Drama Production Packs House
THE CAUCASIAN CHALK CIRCLE, a five-
act play by German playwright Bertolt Brecht,
was presented December 7-13 as the pre-
miere performance of the Fine Arts Depart-
Because of the large cast in the play,
several actors portrayed dual roles.
Mrs. Freda Powell, drama coordinator, dir-
ected the medieval play. Miss Alice Butler
handled set and technical projects construct-
ed by drama students. Scene changes were
made in full view of the audience, a rebel-
lion against usual realism in theater.
Organ and piano music was provided by
Leonard McCormick, director of choral music,
and Larry Wilcoxon, music instructor.
A special command performance of the
play was presented December 9 for invited
guests. Among those attending the special
performance was Dan Blocker, "Hoss Cart-
wright" of Bonanza fame. Following the per-
formance, Blocker met backstage with the
crew, cast, and other interested drama stu-
dents and Mrs. Powell, who was his drama
coach at Sul Ross State College.
Playing the dual role of the narrator and the
young soldier Simon, Joe Walton had to make
costume changes in record time.

Early in Year
Lively student interest contributed to a
heated program of intramural football dur-
ing TCJC's first year in existence. As foot-
ball season neared, teams formed quickly
and were divided into five leagues. Choosing
such names as the "Dirty Dozen," "Fiat Pa-
trol," and the "Dirty Eight," the twenty-five
teams elected managers and got the tourna-
ment play underway.
Acting as intramural manager, Coach
Charles Erickson had the job of supervising
the 324 participating players. Games were
scheduled after school on the expanse north-
west of the Physical Education Building.
Tournament competition ended in early
December with the team of "Speed lnc." tak-
ing final first place honors.

Hub of Activity
With the completion of the SUB,
activity period took on a new mean-
ing to many students. At 10 a.m.
everyone seemed to have adopted the
habit of converging on the Student
Center for food and fellowship.
Equipped with an upstairs. game
room, living room, and color television
viewing area, the plush and expan-
sive building was more than enough
to accommodate the eager mob. Down
below, the student and faculty dining
rooms quickly became havens for
both hungry students and educators
alike. Lounging areas soon gained
prominence as study or card-playing
centers between classes.
Also, the opening of the SUB made
possible student entertainment in an
even greater degree during activity
periods. Guest speakers, exhibits,
specially-invited entertainers, and lo-
cal combos became daily features.

VVar ls Mistake
David Schoenbrun, veteran newsman who has
reported on Viet Nam for twenty-two years, told his
audience that the present war is a mistake. Review-
ing the conflict in Viet Nam, he criticized United
States involvement in Vietnamese affairs.
"I don't like Communism, but I don't think the
United States can help military Fascists fight Com-
munism," he said.
He contradicted present reports of American suc-
cess in Viet Nam. "Three years ago we estimated
the enemy had 400 men in the South. After our drop-
ping one million tons of bombs, they now have
40,000 regular fighters in the South," he declared.
"Does this sound as if we are winning the war?"
A former chief correspondent for CBS, he is now
a professor of international affairs at Columbia Uni-
versity where he teaches a course on Vietnamese
history. ln 1946 he interviewed Ho Chi Minh, North
Vietnamese leader, and has been on the battlefield
frequently since in addition to reading all reports re-
lated to Viet Nam.
Deploring US policy in Viet Nam, Schoenbruri urged
"complete and immediate withdrawal."

Drama Department Presents 'King And I'
Anna finds that to win an argument with the king she has
to use psychology and diplomacy.
The mystery and splendor of the Orient
was brought to life with a resounding gong
as the drama department's spring production
of Rogers and l-lammerstein's "THE KING
AND l" got underway. Colorful costumes and
a vividly realistic set helped transform the fine
arts theater into everything a Siamese palace
The large cast was headed by speech and
drama instructor Miss Alice Butler in the
role of Anna. With lilting voice and British
accent, the pert brunette appeared reminis-
cent of Deborah Kerr. Yale drama graduate
Robert Dyer played the role of the polyga-
mous king with multitudes of children. Dyer
also designed stage sets for the play, using
the innovation of a revolving stage.
Directed by drama co-ordinator Mrs. Freda
Powell, the lively production was such a suc-
cess that the sets are being left intact over
the summer, with the play to be repeated as
next fall's first production.

Early in September 1967, a group of thirty-
two students met and formed a provisional
student government for Tarrant County Junior
College, South Campus.
This group elected five executive officers:
a president, two vice-presidents, a corres-
ponding and a recording secretary. lt also
established six activity committees and
chose chairmen. During the fall, these of-
ficers met each Wednesday in a "Town Hall"
meeting. During this time the government
shouldered the responsibility of student
activities on campus.
Under the guidance of the first vice-presi-
dent, a constitution establishing the South
Campus Student Government Association
was drafted. lt was approved in March 1968
and by April 15, TCJC's first elected Student
Government Association officers took office.
Twenty senators were elected to form the
first legislative body. The new constitution
also established an Activities Council. New
committee chairmen took office lvlay 15.
Attempting to learn to be more effective
leaders and to better understand the role
for Student Needs
that students may play in college affairs,
TCJC student legislators became involved
in the activities of several state leadership
ln the fall, eleven delegates attended the
Association of College Unions International
Convention in Houston. TCJC was also rep-
resented by 17 delegates at the Texas Junior
College Student Council Association in San
Larry Roberts, past president of the stu-
dent body and Gary Pillers, president-elect,
flew to Grand Junction, Colorado, for the
first annual Junior College Student Body
Presidents Conference. Also, in February
the SGA voted to join the Texas Intercollegi-
ate Student Association.
Through several social activities, members
of the SGA were able to share their ideas
and experiences. These activities included a
party at Cliff Wood's home, a barbecue at
Dr. Rushing's home, and a reception in the
SUB to enable newly elected SGA officers
and senators to meet the administration.

Cindy Clark, Sylvia Ausland.
The Student-Faculty Organizations Com-
mittee, a board of four students and three
faculty members, approve student organiza-
tions and establish policies governing on-
campus special interest groups. During its
first year, the group aided and approved
establishment of twenty-three organizations.
The committee established its regular
meeting date as the first Friday of each
month. Because of the large number of new
organizations this first year, the committee
had several special sessions. Under the new
student government constitution, this special
committee of the Student Government As-
sociation will be under the direction of the
first vice president of SGA.
Other activities of the Organizations Com-
mittee include making policies concerning
all the activities of all organizations and aid-
ing in the establishment of new groups of
interest to students. Members of this com-
mittee are appointed at the beginning of the
fall semester by the Executive Committee of

Spring SGA Officers Lead First Blood Drive
Campaign promises for worthwhile en-
deavors became a crimson reality when the
Student Government sponsored a campus
"Bleed-ln" this spring.
Held in the SUB, the "Bleed-ln" neces-
sitated a complete change in decor for the
Forum. Sterile looking tables, equipment and
nurses presented official hospital atmosphere
as volunteers lined up to donate. Establish-
ment of a blood pool occurred in late May
when 55 members of the student body and
faculty each donated one pint of blood to
the Carter Blood Center. Credit for the blood
will be maintained for one year, during which
time those who are directly associated with
TCJC may draw from the pool in emergencies.
Two hemophiliac students of TCJC will also
benefit from the blood pool.
Several volunteers were refused by the
Blood Center because they did not meet the
necessary requirements. Before blood was
taken, a blood test was made to check for
illnesses, and Fih factor. From school, the
donations were taken to the blood center and
processed for immediate use.

The only religious club on campus, the Baptist
Student Union, boasts the largest club membership
of any campus organization.
Striving for a better understanding of Christian
ideals through worthwhile activities and fellowship,
BSU counts among its assets its director, divinity
student Phil Hughes, a Lubbock native now attending
Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary. Hughes
works in cooperation with Miss Sandy Sullivan, who
acts as faculty advisor for the organization.
In addition to being the largest, BSU is also one
of the most active clubs. lncluded in the year's activi-
ties were a fall social for enlisting initial members,
the Christmas party, and in early February, a ski trip
to Santa Fe and Glorietta, New Mexico.
Also, the club honored favorite professors with an
early-morning breakfast on campus. Later in the year
they attended a Missions Conference at the South-
western Theological Seminary, as well as a Leader-
ship Training Conference in Abilene at Hardin-Sim-
As a contributing campus organization, BSU states
as its purpose: "to relate Christianity to daily living
for the college students benefit."

In Area Events
With numbers in their repertoire ranging
from Brahms' "lf Thou Be Near," all the way
to Cannon's "Bill Bailey Wont You Please
Come Home," the TCJC Choral Department is
the embodiment of versatility.
Divided into two categories, the Choir and
the Singers, students have a choice in the
type of music they sing. Classical and con-
temporary selections constitute the maior
work of the Choir, while the Singers lean
more toward the popular vain.
Both groups have performed for various
conventions and civic groups. Making their
debut last November at Morningside Junior
High School, the troupe with Director
Leonard McCormick went on to perform at
the convention of the Southern Association
of lunior College Administrations in Dallas.
The years events culminated in the "Spring
Concert" held in the theatre.
Singers officers included David Bryan.

Appropriately called "The Coffee
House," signifying emphasis usually
placed on prose and poetry readings
in espresso houses, the English Club
was established to stimulate interest
in literature and language.
The Coffee House furnishes a meet-
ing place, once a month, where stu-
dents may come to discuss art, litera-
ture, drama, and poetry. Supervising
club activities were Mrs, Bettye Mid-
dleton and William Knox, sponsors.
Fulfilling its purpose, the club spon-
sored several guest speakers during
the year's activities. Among speakers
who appeared were Dr. John W. Smith
of TCU, who spoke on "The Novel as
a Reflection of Social Mores," and

Study of French
Viva la France! Viva La Societe Francaise!
Or as TCJC students of French would be more
apt to say, "Long live the French Club." "La
Societe," of course is the club which enjoys
life as the French do, for at least one class Z
period a day, anyway.
Designed to offer social and recreational
activities in keeping with the French language
which students are studying, the club is spon-
sored by French instructor Mrs. Martha
Holmes. One need not be a French student
to join the club, however, as the club con-
stitution states anyone may be a member
who is interested in the French language.
Movies in French dialogue and a genuine
French dinner were among club projects. ln
addition, there were visits by French speak-
ers, including one who spoke on Christmas
and its customs in his native France.
Elected club officers were Johnnie Stotts,

kowski, who grew up in Germany during
Hltler's reign, told in detail of his experiences
with the Nazis. Judge J. C. Duvall spoke to
the club on the Nuremburg trials of the Nazi
war criminals. Present at the trials, Judge

When Dr. Joe Fiushing arrived in Fort Worth
in September of 1965, Tarrant County Junior
College consisted of seven trustees and a
community dream. By September, 1967, the
new president had fashioned the dream into
an eleven and a half million-dollar reality
with 23 buildings on a 158-acre site.
As the doors opened on the South Cam-
pus, construction began on the Northeast
Campus and plans for a third college campus
-scheduled to open in the early 197O's--
were sent to the drawing boards.
In a single day, Dr. Flushing may don a
steel helmet to inspect a construction pro-
ject, change to conservative attire for a meet-
ing with bankers or legislators, slip into
academic regalia to represent TCJC at a
convocation, and conclude his day dressed
in a tuxedo for a formal speaking engage-
Few college presidents ever build a com-
plete campus, yet in a decade, Dr. Flushing
will have built four, including Broward County
in Florida where he worked before coming
to Tarrant County.
l-le conducts college business from his
main office downtown, a small office on the
South Campus, and a brief case that can be
filled with material for work in Washington or
Austin. He requires few notes for his numer-
ous speaking engagements since he has
worked closely with every facet of the college
Although classified as a young president,
he has twenty years' experience as an edu-
cational administrator. He serves the school
as public speaker, financial advisor, building
supervisor, and academic consultant.

Dr. Milton L. Smith, dean of instruction,
takes pride in creating an agreeable campus
atmosphere among faculty members.
He enjoys his task of recruiting and evalu-
ating instructors. He feels strongly about
providing the best education possible.
He plans, organizes, supervises, and ad-
ministers the institutional program of all col-
lege credit courses. Thirteen new instruction-
al innovation programs show the determina-
tion of the dean of instruction and his division
chairmen to make available the most modern
and practical educations.
Responsible for master teaching and ex-
amination schedules, he assigns 148 teachers
to the 100 classrooms on campus. After
graduating with a double major in English and
music, he taught public schools and Panola
Junior College for fifteen years. His love for
music and English seems to be exceeded
only by his love for pets. He has raised five
Persian cats and a farm full of Border Collies.
Raising cats and dogs together must surely
be a good foundation for a dean of instruc-

Jack Leggett Cbelowj, general manager of the

store is owned and operated by the TCJC district
service institute, and profits benefit students.
Three services available to students that are more or
less taken for granted are the campus book store, food
services, and campus security.
The object of a college book store in today's educational
field is not simply to supply text books, but also to keep
available all necessary items any student may want or
need. Three meat entrees, six vegetables, four salads,
fresh fruit and desserts make up the choice of daily menu
ready for hungry scholars in the cafeteria. Rules and
regulations must be followed during one's existence, and
college life is no exception. The partial effect of campus
security is to prepare young adults for the everyday laws
of the municipality in which he will live. A large part of
the job of campus patrol consists of regulating traffic at
all times over the 158-acre site. Traffic laws are deter-
mined by what is considered to be in the best interest of
all individuals using campus roads.
The on-campus book store is a unique operation in that
700f0 of its major business is done during six or seven
weeks of the yearg the first three or four weeks of fall
semester, and the first two or three in the spring. The
cafeteria does 70010 of its business between 11:45 a.m.
and 1:00 p.m. every week, Monday through Friday. Cam-
pus security handles its job 1000fO of the time, seventeen
hours per day.

Developmental reading is designed to help
the student reading below college level im-
prove his basic reading skills. Beginning
students are given a vocabulary test and the
Iowa Silent Reading Test for comprehension.
From these tests, students are placed on an
individual basis in materials suitable to their
reading level and reading needs. This course
may be taken for one semester of credit and
continued for several more semesters with-
Students taking the advanced reading
course, read at an average or above aver-
age level. This course aids in improvement
of reading techniques and skills involving
speed, flexibility, comprehension, vocabulary,
and critical reading.
Both courses are designed to help the stu-
dent learn how to approach textbooks and
to condense materials in relation to time.
They also teach the student to read critically.
ln addition to listening to tapes, students

Department Programs Develop
Talents In Art And Music
Music instructors work almost around the
clock to expose the student to as many facets
of the performing arts as possible.
Applied music, taught as private lessons,
helps develop the student as a performing
artist. Music theory, the grammar of music,
is the study of music composition. In music
history and literature, concentration is on the
chronological evolution of music and the
fourth approach is the ultimate objective of
Practical application of music encourages
the student to participate in either the studio
band, symphonic band, choir, or singers.
The music department offers both first and
second-year work toward a baccalaureate
degree in music. Private lessons are offered
in voice, brass, string, woodwind, percussion,
and keyboard instruments.
Art students use everything from live
models to sewage plants to develop their
skills. Art appreciation includes a brief history
of art and involves critical evaluation of
selected art works.
A study of composition and color co-ordin-
ation is the basis for creative design. Here
students are concerned with pen and ink
techniques, color, and three dimension draw-
ing. This course helps develop eye-hand co-
ordination through experimentation. Students
also study the principles of design in depth.

Topic for Study
Human behavior is the major topic of the
three courses of study offered by the be-
havioral science department. Because people
respond according to what they believe,
philosophy classes study the meaning of ex-
istence, the universe, knowledge, values, and
human institutions. This year, some of these
ideas were presented to students through
"Playboy," Charlie Brown, and the writings
of Huxley, Orwell, and Ann Band.
ln psychology, the study of individual be-
havior, students participated in several lab-
oratory activities, including acting as both
experimenter and testee in the study of the
Wechsler Adult Intelligence Scale, an IQ test.
Also included in the psychology classes was
the demonstration of several tests designed
to indicate personality traits.
Through sociology, a study of people in
groups, students viewed a film titled "The
Detached Americans." This movie demon-
strated the fact that "people don't want to get
involved." Another variation from the regular
class lecture schedule was the program and
film presented by a VISTA volunteer.

Classes Weigh Influence of World Events
Through viewing film strips and movies.
history students have been able to see for
themselves portions of the events that have
influenced the world today. Many United
States history classes also drew on current
events as topics for class discussion. Fre-
quent subjects included the war in Viet Nam
and the coming Presidential election.
Implementing the basic lectures have been
outside reading assignments including for
some classes, the reading of several Supreme
Government classes afforded the student
a chance to study the structure of the United
States Constitution and government systems.
Study also included a summary of Texas
state, county, and municipal government sys-
tems, contrasted with those of other states.
Learning the basic physical elements of
geography was achieved with the study of
maps, weather and climate, landforms, and
natural resources. Human geography of the
world involved a special emphasis on man's
use of natural and human resources in se-
lected regions and countries of the world.
Students participated in drawing maps and
presenting oral reports. They were also given
a thumbnail sketch of each country.

Law enforcement and fire technology pro-
grams share a common purpose: to provide
education in a specialized field.
The law enforcement program began with
an enrollment of 160 students. About half
are full-time policemen, many of whom are
enrolled as part-time students.
Students may work toward either an asso-
ciate in applied science degree or take
courses in preparation for study at a four-
year school. Outside the police science pro-
gram at Sam Houston State College, the
law enforcement program at TCJC is unique
in the state of Texas. Technical courses help
the person interested in law enforcement
understand social problems related to police

Sewing and cooking accidents pose few
worries to the home economics students
since nurses are nearby.
Located in quarters across the courtyard
from the home economics department, the
nursing program stresses patient care and
community health. With the exception of the
first semester and the second summer, stu-
dents spend an average of twelve hours
a week working in the hospital. General
courses in fundamentals of nursing, maternal
and child health, psychology, and medical
surgical nursing are part of the two-year pro-
gram. lnstructors then take the students to
the hospital where they work with patients.
Thirty-seven nursing students completed the
first year of the program.
ln fall and spring semester style shows,
coeds modeled fashions they had designed
and made in clothing classes. Earlier in the
year, a fashion show featuring doll cloth-
ing was held for faculty and other guests.
Courses offered in the home economics pro-
gram include clothing, art in clothing, food
selection and preparation, and nutrition.

quired for college level curriculum. Develop-
mental Math ll is for the student who had
some difficulty in the first year of high school
math but did pass the course, or for the
individual who has been out of school for
several years. The third level, which is higher
mathematics, is for the student having an ade-
quate background and comprehension of
math. College mathematics is the initial step
in fulfilling degree requirements.
The physics program begins with an intro-
duction of the basic principles of physics.
An explanation of physics, laboratory experi-
ments and specialized problems are part of
the students' initial course. The course serves
as background for advanced courses for en-
gineers and physics majors.

Drafting, architectural design, and Elec-
tronics prepare students for careers in tech-
nology, and technical training needed to fill
the present-day gaps in industry.
All phases of drafting are covered by the
drafting program which prepares students
for jobs in the construction field. It provides
training in interpretation of building codes,
writing specifications, surveying and layout
of buildings, cost of estimating, and super-
vision of construction.
Architectural design is a technology which
translates ideas, specifications, and calcula-
tions of engineers, architects, and designers
into complete and accurate drawings for
Patience and healthy back muscles seem to be
prerequisites for the study of drafting, as drafting
major Bruce Queton demonstrates.

The capacity crowd entered a darkened
room which came alive with black lightsg
fluorescent lights that pick up hot colors, and
flashing colored lights.
Eight recorders, eight slide projectors, and
three movie projectors played simultaneously.
Recordings of Beatle music, opera, pop, jazz,
blues, and soul music were played while pic-
tures of paintings, sculpture and architecture
flashed on screens.
Each area of music, art, and architecture
presented in the "Happening" was the sub-
ject of lectures and study in the spring.
Individual attention by instructors and close
personal associations between students are
among the goals of the basic studies pro-
gram. This one-year, college-level program in

Students enroll in courses on a block basis.
Twenty students are placed in each block,
and attend all classes together as a unit.
Courses consist of five areas of study: com-
munications, humanities, social sciences, nat-
ural science, and career planning.
After the student completes the required
basic studies classes, he may be recom-
mended for freshman or sophomore work in
the university parallel program, or for a two-
year technical or vocational program.

Initially the physical education program
stresses the biophysical values of muscular
activity. The second phase of the program is
designed to teach physical fitness through
developing playing skills in special activities.
Basic physical education, the initial course
required of all full-time students, serves as a
pre-requisite to all activity courses. It includes
nine weeks of lecture and nine weeks of
physical activity. A physical fitness test and
a swimming skills test are given during the
nine weeks of activity. Courses in introduc-
tion to health and foundations of health are
offered to physical education majors.
Courses are offered in activities such as
tennis, swimming, scuba diving, diving, gym-
nastics, weight training, badminton, volley-
ball, basic conditioning, handball, squash,
field hockey, and dancing.
Opening officially in January, the Physical
and Health Education Building includes five

Every charter member of these first clubs, every person
who received one of the first offices or honors, and those
people who participated in these first activities have helped
in making the history of this year. Since events and indi-
viduals have been too numerous to be catalogued in detail, we
have tried to present highlights of the year.
I hope you will enjoy this first book as much as we did
in making it. You will learn more about our school and what
it has to offer, as we have learned. As we prepared this
yearbook, we became acquainted with the faculty and staff, as
well as the academic programs and activities of this school.
And with this knowledge, we developed interest, understanding,
and finally love.
I personally have many people to thank for this book,
for it was also a first for me. I would especially like to
thank Mrs. Dorothy Estes, whose optimistic - HTom orrow for
suren - kept me pushing even when August 12 seemed like to-
morrow and we still had two-hundred pages to go.
I would like to thank the staff, without naming them,
for at times I was not too sure who they were. Also, thanks
to Mr. Cliff Wood for all the help he and his student assist-
ants gave us, and to Dr. James Miles for his help with the
cover. Thanks to all my Kappa sisters, the REFLECTOR staff,
and other close friends who helped in proofreading, copy
writing, and moral support.
A special thanks should go to Robert Helstrom, Jackie
Carpenter,Cathy Iverson, and Reginal Young for their tireless
and talented efforts in completing the book. A million
thanks and forty dirty looks should be directed to the photo-
graphers - Bob Thompson, Farris Hunter, Robert E. Lee, Jimmy
Chow, Jim Snider, Arthur Pritchard, and Linda Kaye.
We hope that as you read this book you too will become
acquainted and enchanted with the school.
