The Junior Historians, on November 22, held a regional meet-
ing in Fort Worth in the Fort Worth Public Library audi-
torium, in connection with the Texas State Teachers Association
Meeting. The program was prepared under the direction of Miss
Ruby Mixon of Paschal High School, Fort Worth. Miss Llerena
Friend of Wichita Falls presided. Sponsors and student mem-
bers were present as representatives from the following chap-
ters and schools: Wichita Falls, North Side (Fort Worth),
Paschal (Fort Worth), Anson, Sidney Lanier (Houston), Wood-
row Wilson (Dallas), and Forest Avenue (Dallas). Each chapter
had a representative speaker who reported on the activities of
their local chapter. Approximately one hundred persons were
in attendance. Dr. Rebecca Smith, of Texas Christian Univer-
sity, made the main address of the morning on "Home-Made
History." Dr. H. Bailey Carroll reported on "The Texas State
Historical Tours and The Junior Historian Magazine." Dr.
Walter Prescott Webb presented charters to two new chapters,
Anson and Sidney Lanier (Houston).
The many calls made upon the time of the office force of the
Association have resulted in some delay in the issue of the
initial number of The Junior Historian. We have tried to think
everything through in some detail rather than hurry and make
mistakes. At the present time, however, a cover design has
been selected and the galley proofs have been read for the
Volume I, Number I, issue. The first issue will be ready for
distribution in January.
A design has been selected for a Junior Historian's pin; it will
be as unique and distinctive as is the Junior Historian move-
ment. With a view toward permanent adoption, manufacturing
jewelers are now submitting prospective copies of the pin.
Information concerning the progress to date on the Texas
State Historical Tours will appear in The Junior Historian.
