schools. Later affiliation was taken over by the State Department
of Education and thereupon the University ceased sending out
the Quarterly. The result has been that most of the high schools
dropped their membership. Despite the fact that the Quarterly is
devoted almost solely to Texas history, it has not been available
to students of the subject.
At the last meeting of the Executive Council it was decided
to contact the high schools and offer the Quarterly for five years
at $12.50, and of course on the regular annual basis of $3. During

Plans are being perfected for the organization of a Junior State
Historical Association among the high school students of Texas.
The purpose is to stimulate the study of state and local history
by high school students. The first step is to organize a Texas
History Club of not less than ten members. This club will have
a sponsor in the school and a co-sponsor in the community, a
citizen who is interested in local history. These sponsors should
be members of the Texas State Historical Association.
Having completed this organization, the club may apply for a
charter converting it into a chapter of the Junior Association.
The membership of this club will be found largely in the Texas
or American history classes, though others should be eligible.
