Dear Portal friends: Do you enjoy having history at your fingertips? We’ve appreciated your support over the years, and need your help to keep history alive. Here’s the deal: we’ve received a Challenge Grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities. Now it’s time to keep our word and raise matching funds for the Cathy Nelson Hartman Portal to Texas History Endowment. If even half the people who use the Portal this month give $5, we’d meet our $1.5 million goal immediately! All donations are tax-deductible and support Texas history: yesterday, today, and tomorrow.

The regular meeting of the Association was held at the Uni-
versity of Texas on March 2. On recommendation of the Execu-
tive Council a number of new members were elected. The follow-
ing resolution was adopted endorsing a bill introduced in the
House of Representatives by Hon. Morris Sheppard for the erec-
tion of a, National Archives Building at Washington:
Resolved by the Texas State Historical Association in annual
meeting assembled, That the President and Secretary be author-
ized to unite with the Texas Library and Historical Commission
in a joint memorial to the House of Representatives of the United
States, requesting that more adequate provision be made for safe-
guarding the archives of the national government, and endorsing
the plan of erecting a National Archive Building.
Resolved, further, That a copy of this memorial be sent to each
Senator and Congressman from Texas.
The treasurer's report was received and approved. It is printed
below, and it shows the Association to be in a fairly satisfactory
financial condition. On recommendation of the Executive Coun-
cil, the name of THE QUARTERLY was changed to THE SOUTH-
ter will hereafter be published as was formerly, the change of
name will enable the Association to enlarge the scope of TIHE
QUARTERLY by publishing material on other portions of the
Southwest. This, it is hoped, will lead to betterment of the Asso-
ciation's finances, and to a considerable enlargement of TI-IE QUAR-
TERLY. Officers were elected for the ensuing year, as follows:
Judge A. W. Terrell, president; Miss Katie Daffan, Mr. Beau-
regard Bryan, Dr. M. J. Bliem, Mrs. A. B. Looscan, vice-presi-
dents; Dr. Charles W. Ramsdell, corresponding secretary and
treasurer; Judge Z. T. Fulmore and Mrs. D. F. Arthur, members
of the Executive Council.
At a meeting of the Fellows, Miss Elizabeth H. West was
elected a Fellow, and the following members of the Executive
Council were elected to the publication committee: Judge Z. T.
Fulmore, Dr. W. J. Battle, and Mr. E. W. Winkler. The presi-
dent and the recording secretary and librarian, Professor E. C.
Barker, are ex efficiis members of the committee.
